Top tips for renting a car in St. Petersburg

  • As a tourist in Saint Petersburg, the best way to see this exciting city is by car. Within the comfort of your own car, rather than taking the time-consuming public transport, you can visit all the sights at your own pace. From exploring the coast of Tampa Bay to the Museum of Fine Arts, you can easily access all the sights with the luxury of a rental car.
  • Looking forward to renting a car on your trip to Saint Petersburg? When you fly into Tampa International Airport, the on-site car rental desks can be located using the SkyConnect train from the Main Terminal. If you have booked an off-site car rental company, you can use the courtesy vehicle service in the Red and Blue Baggage Claim areas. It is really easy to find a rental car in the terminal.
  • Driving around Saint Petersburg is a very laid back, thanks to its navigable roads. When you are in your car, it’s good to know that cyclists have the same rights to the roadways as other vehicles, so they must obey the same traffic laws. Throughout Florida, drivers must always keep headlights on and may turn right at a red light unless a “no turn on red” sign is posted.
  • In Saint Petersburg, the rush hour begins in the morning between 7:30 am and 9:30 am and again in the afternoon from 3:30 pm to 7:30 pm. During these peak times, it’s best to avoid the popular I-275 exits and Hillsborough Avenue as well as the Veterans Expressway. It’s a good idea to steer clear of driving during rush hour on Monday mornings and Friday evenings, along with national holidays.
