PGD Rental Car Return

If you must go, drop off your rental to 28000 Airport Rd, Unit A8, Punta Gorda, FL 33982, on your way out. The Rental Car Center is just across the street from the Bailey Terminal. If you picked up your rental here, you’ll recognize it as the same location. Safe travels!

Punta Gorda Airport Car Rental

Take a deep breath, relax, and leave the stress behind with a Punta Gorda Airport car rental. Our city is nestled next to Charlotte Harbor Preserve, a perfect scene for afternoon cruises and sunny days. Don’t forget Stump Pass Beach! This park is perfect for swimming and beachcombing—don’t be surprised if you find washed-up shark teeth!—and less than an hour from the airport. 

Fastbreak Membership: Our Fastbreak Membership helps you cut down wasted time by allowing you to skip the general line. Even better, it’s a free membership where you can also earn Budget Bucks. 

Cheap Prices: Our amazing prices allow you to travel in style and save money for the fun stuff. When you’re looking to make a reservation, don’t forget about our Best Rate Guarantee. If you find the same Budget rental on another website, we’ll match and beat any lower price.

What is the best type of car to rent near the Punta Gorda, FL airport?

You are probably in Florida for one of two things: the beach or business. For those avoiding winter or just enjoying a holiday, an SUV rental may be your best option for traveling along sandy roads. Sedans and luxury vehicles are popular among those traveling for work. But these aren’t the only vehicles Budget offers—check out more below.

SUV Rental

It’s easier to camp and fish at Myakka State Forest with an SUV rental. Choose a 5-, 7-, or 8-passenger SUV to fit both equipment and friends.

Van Rental

Gather with friends or family in a minivan rental. Take off around the harbor, or make your way to Bayshore Live Oak Park.

Need room for more? No one is the odd one out when you reserve a 12- or 15-passenger van rental.

Long-Term Car Rental

No matter how long you’re here for, it’s never long enough. Extend your trip with a monthly car rental for 1 to 11 months.
