How old do you have to be to rent a car in Tampa, FL?

To get a Budget car rental at the Tampa airport, you’ll need to be at least 21. Renters 21 to 24 will be charged $27 per day in addition to the base rate and will be restricted in their vehicles selection. Renter age 25 and older can rent any vehicle.

What is the best type of car to rent in Tampa?

Budget has whatever type of car rental you need for the type of trip you’re taking in Tampa—whether you’re heading to Tampa Bay, the many golf courses, the convention center, or buckling down for some work.

Van Rental

With a passenger van rental, you can take a group of 12 or 15 passengers over to Adventure Island water park or Busch Gardens theme park. With a minivan rental, such as a Honda Odyssey, take a family of up to 7 to the Florida Aquarium or Big Cat Rescue.

SUV Rental

The Tampa Bay area offers many outdoor adventures, so you might want an SUV rental, such as a Ford Escape or a Chevrolet Suburban. Take paddleboards down to Tampa Bay or bikes to the Tampa Riverwalk trail.

Long-Term Car Rental

Whether you’re stationed here, on a business assignment, or you’ve moved here but haven’t bought a car yet, you can get low rates on a monthly car rental from Budget. The longer you rent, the more you save—up to 11 months.

Luxury Car Rental

Is there any better place for a luxurious convertible car rental than Florida? The average temperature is about 90 degrees all summer and fall—with very low rainfall—so put the top down, head to the Courtney Campbell Causeway, and enjoy the warm breeze off Tampa Bay in your Camaro SS.
