If you will be visiting St. Augustine during the warmer months and you want to take advantage of the weather, consider renting a convertible. Otherwise, individuals that will be mainly in the city center may find an economy vehicle to be convenient for the area, as a smaller model makes it easier to navigate the busy downtown. If you plan on going to the beach or enjoying some recreational activities, a large SUV can be a nice choice as you will have plenty of room for carrying any necessary equipment.
To rent a car in Florida, you need to be at least 21 years of age. While you are allowed to rent a car when you are ages 21 through 24, you will most likely be charged a daily fee for being a Young Driver. Usually drivers 25 years old and older are not subject to this kind of fee.
Within the city limits, the speed limit for each road typically falls between 20 and 50 mph. Rural roads in the air may have a speed limit that is between 55 and 65 mph. When you are driving on the freeway, you will usually have a speed limit within the range of 45 and 70 mph.
Doing so is probably in your best interest because you will almost certainly need to drive on toll roads in and around St. Augustine. Most Florida toll booths take a picture of your license plate in order to charge you electronically. Because the license plate is registered to the rental car company, the charge will go back to them, even if you are using your own SunPass. If you have not signed up and paid for the rental car company’s toll program, you will probably be charged for the tolls plus a fine. To avoid unwarranted expenses such as this, you should consider signing up for the toll program when you rent from St. Augustine car rentals.
One of the largest parking areas in St. Augustine is the Historic Downtown Parking Facility, which can hold more than 1,200 vehicles and which charges fares by the hour and day.

In downtown St. Augustine, you will find a variety of paid lots that are centrally located. The city has its own smartphone app that allows you to see where space is available and even pay in advance.
3 locations in St. Augustine
Pros:Got to Budget and no representative was there. I waited 45 minutes before someone showed up. As a result I was very late to my appointment.
Pros:Drop off was easy and the car was comfy.
Cons:I made a reservation for a compact car the day before at a specific location and I get to the pickup location and they tell me I have to drive another 15 minutes to another location because they were out of compact cars. That part was fine but a heads up ahead of time would’ve been great. The car I was given at the new location was dirty. The trunk was full of old receipts, a roll of raffle tickets and other trash. The cashier at the new location tried to charge me 30 dollars more than i was quoted. Luckily I caught it before he ran my card.
Pros:The gentlemen who works there is always friendly and very helpful
Pros:My daughter and I went to Budget office in St Augustine, FL to pick up car. First off, hours online were stated as 'opens at 7'am. The employee was not there until going on 8am. Another person told us they didn't have any cars. It was stressful waiting for person to arrive to check. Lucky for me, they did have a car. Headed up the road (an hour plus late) for Concord, NC. Arrived after hours at Avis-Budget office so I had to ca,l Budget for instructions. 'Charlie's helped me get a new drop off spot at Regional airport. I had NO idea how to vet t hete but a friend said they would get me to the airport, which was only 5 miles away. I was instructed to get there before 9pm when they close. We found our way there by 7:15 AND THEY WERE CLOSED!!! Had to drop keys in Dropbox. No one to check car. E etc. POOR BUSINESS!! Susan Streisel
Pros:staff at pick up was okay; polite; did not appear knowledgeable about the car nor have time to provide more than perfunctory direction to the best route to the hwy. staff at drop off was rude
Cons:the car was quite comfortable. the dash board lights were very bright resulting in dangerous discomfort and distraction at night. the radio was of very low quality and also shined brightly. I tried, unsuccessfully, to reduce the brightness.
Pros:Nothing, this was a terrible experience.
Cons:When I arrived at hertz, they made me wait over an hour as they didn't have any cars available and someone had to drive it from jacksonville. Then, there was inflexibility when I wanted to change my drop off location. They wouldn't let me even during difficult times like COVID. Then, I received erroneous additional charges on my credit card. Horrible experience. And customer service was incredibly rude.
Cons:Since they did not have any cars available, even though I had a reservation, the least they could have done was to check their competition rather than leave me stranded. They did nothing
8.0 Very good
Cons:Hours published as if open all day long. Came back to put spouse on, note on door they would be back in fifteen. We were able to find someone quickly, but no one mentioned that the office could be closed when I was told he’d have to come back in. Also, we’ve never had to pay for a spouse driver before, only extradrivers beyond that. Spouse driver was additional $13.50.
Pros:Vehicle was clean and available on time
Cons:I was not made aware by Kayak or by Hertz that there was an additional "concession fee recovery" charge equaling $62.35 tacked on to the rental amount. When I asked the agent he said this was because I picked the car up from the airport. If I had picked the car up at another location the fee would not have been applied. I could have just as easily rented this car from another location near by. I believe that both Kayak and Hertz are responsible. The agent also said that if I had booked directly with Hertz instead of going through a third party they would have made me aware. I feel like I have been ripped off. Last time I will use Kayak or Hertz to rent a car.
