Top tips for renting a car in Tampa

  • For travelers planning on renting a car during their time in Tampa, it is as simple as hopping onto the SkyConnect train after your flight to Tampa International Airport lands. The SkyConnect train can be found in the main terminal building and connects the airport to the Rental Car Center and the Economy Parking Lot.
  • Travelers new to Florida should be extra careful when driving in the rain, especially during the later summer months. Storms can appear out of nowhere and can quickly flood the streets with water, making them dangerous for inexperienced drivers. The flooding will pass quickly, so just be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
  • Rush hour in Tampa lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and picks back up again from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. During rush hour, Hillsborough Ave and many of the I-275 exits can become very backed up so it pays to time your trip accordingly. Much of the historic downtown is made up of smaller streets that can grind to a halt during rush hour as well.
  • One of the major advantages to renting a car in Tampa is the easy access to all of its wonderful nearby beaches and state parks. For instance, Clearwater Beach, Fort De Soto Park, and Caladesi Island State Park are all readily accessed by car, but are extremely laborious to reach via public transportation. Chances are, you will want to take advantage of the wonderful shopping opportunities in the greater Tampa area and a car is necessary for that as well.

  • Tampa sees a variety of speed limits from 25 mph all the way up to 70 mph on interstate highways.

  • Tampa, in comparison to many other cities in the U.S., has moderate to cheap gas. The average cost is around $2.25, which, compared to Seattle’s average gas cost of $3+ per gallon, Boston’s $2.50 and Dallas’ $2, puts it right in the lower range of gas prices in the U.S.

  • In general, streetside parking is not too difficult to find throughout Tampa, especially in the less crowded outer areas. However, in the historic downtown area, streetside parking can become scarce and difficult to find. Parking garages are a great option for drivers heading downtown, though, as they are amply available and fairly cheap.
