KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Sarasota

  • With a rental car from one of the dependable, cheap car rentals in Sarasota, you’ll be able to visit several destinations outside the city. Fort Myers, located 75.9 miles (122km) from Sarasota, is one of these destinations. A 2h drive south of Sarasota, this superb town is home to white-sand beaches and emerald waters. Everglades National Park, situated 149.7 miles (241km) from Sarasota, is another destination you can drive to. Renowned for its indigenous flora and fauna, this park is the perfect place to visit if you’re a nature lover. To get to this park, you’ll drive for approximately 3h. Besides driving to these destinations, you can take a 2h 30min drive to Bok Tower Gardens, which is 99.4 miles (160km) away from Sarasota.
  • Speeding fines in Sarasota range from $80 to $600. If caught driving 6-9 mph over the set limit, you’ll be fined $80.50. On the other hand, if you are caught driving between 20-29 mph over the set limit, you’ll be fined about $205.50. Sarasota’s traffic officers are always on patrol. To avoid them, while driving your preferred cheap rental car in Sarasota, you should ensure that you drive it within the set speed limits.
  • If you’d like to rent a car in downtown Sarasota, you can count on doing so without hassle, as a good number of the cheap car rentals in Sarasota have locations in this part of the city. Alamo and Budget have one location each in Downtown Sarasota. Enterprise, on the contrary, has two locations. Enterprise’s locations open the earliest, at 8:00 am, while Alamo’s closes the latest, at 11:00 pm
  • As a tourist in Sarasota, there’s lots to discover with the help of a car.

No tips. I'm a local (rented a car for visiting family), so no real help on the traffic, except that there is a lot of it, many drivers have no idea where they are going, and there are a lot of older folks driving very slow. ;) welcome to Florida.

Hello. I arrived very late at the airport due to flight delays. My flight had originated in the UK. I went to the desk and explained that I didn't think it would be safe to drive, and asked if I could collect from the Venice office the next day. I was told that wouldn't be a problem. I collected from the Venice Budget office the next day. The woman was very helpful, but again didn't indicated that there was any issue with collecting from a different place. I returned the car, again no issues. So I was very surprised to be hit with a nearly £200 charge for collecting from a different location. My sister would have driven me to the airport if we had been told that there would be a charge. I have queried through the provider I booked with (Qeeq) and was told that Budget wouldn't "budge" on the charge. I am very unhappy and wouldn't book with you again. Kind regards, Ann Jones

They could have called or emailed before I paid to Uber to the dealership. The woman that was helping was insanely abrasive and rude about it instead of apologetic. I understand things happen but I absolutely should have been notified before my reservation time plus she did not need to be so abrasive about it. Apologetic and calm if the way she should have approached it. I am extremely unsatisfied and will not book again.

Cons:

When we got there they did not have our truck. Two others had reservations for trucks as well. The lady said she didn't know when they might get any trucks...why was the reservation allowed to be booked if no trucks? Bait and switch at its finest. Never renting from Avis again.

Pros:

The 2nd car was clean & in good working condition. Try’s car w/ cracked windshield & followed all instructions when I called in & got case #, did follow up before returning car. Simple “incident report” done upon return, easy, 15 min to do paperwork so was impressed they gave outside service, avoiding lines inside terminal.

Cons:

Initial car had obvious front end or alignment problem that should have never been rented out. Caused me to return next day for replacement. Eating my valuable vacation time.

Pros:

Easy pickup and drop off!

Cons:

Car was not as clean as I expected it to be. Windshield was dirty on the inside and it wasn’t vacuumed very good. Kind of felt funny turning it in in that condition even though I only rented it for 2 days and only drove it on of them.

Cons:

Car was filthy. Pickup was a $30 cab ride from airport, not at airport. Car had damaged windshield and no washer fluid.

Pros:

I really liked the upgrade to the minivan.

Cons:

We waited one hour and 45 minutes in line at SRQ for the rental car. Only one attendant there. I also got a ticket for an expired tag that I had no control over.

KAYAK

Pros:

That eventually I got a small car.

Cons:

Had reserved a small car -- but only a truck was available. Was told to come back the next day, when there would be plenty of cars, and swap it out for a small car. Did that -- told us that no cars were available (all cars reserved -- tho of course my car was reserved too). Told to come back the next day between 8-10am -- when there would surely be plenty of cars. Did...and after 30 minutes (first saying there were no cars) they found a small car. Incidentally, had tried to call ahead each time but the main office didn't know the local car situation and no one answered the phone at the local office. Local office told me that they don't have anyone available to answer the phone. This isn't a problem that can be solved without people driving all the way to the airport to find out if there are cars available?

Pros:

Staff very friendly but had to cover three different rental agencies with two people and a long line. I felt very bad for them as some of the crowd were nasty and it was not their fault.

Cons:

More staffing at the pickup counter.

Pros:

Bill was extremely helpful in adjusting the amount overcharged. Paul was also a pleasure. Everything about our encounter was very very nice. The drop off process was very easy. if I was not overcharged I would have been out of there in 5 minutes.

Cons:

When i dropped off the car I was overcharged. Had I not looked at my receipt I would not have known. I had to go inside and go to the counter to have the charge adjusted.

Pros:

The car was nice.

Cons:

I called to let them know I needed the car two days earlier. Had to leave a voice mail and got no return call. Didn't know where to find the shuttle. Took forever to process paper work. When we went to return the car, there was no one there. We had to call two different numbers to get someone there to check the car in and give us a ride to the airport. HORRIBLE!!!! And it wasn't cheap either.
