Top tips for hiring a car in Florida

  • So, you plan on visiting Florida, the capital that’s sandwiched between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Well, hire a car, hit the accelerator and enjoy a thrilling road trip experience. Besides the extensive range of entertainment options, Florida is also in close proximity to some of the most popular and gorgeous cities not too far from the famous beaches, such as Fort Walton and Panama City Beach. On your holiday, be sure to tour some popular destinations such as Epcot and the Kennedy Space Center. Of course, your travel can never be complete without touring the Honeymoon Island State Park area, about 1 hour by car from Tampa. Here, you can camp, fish, hike on trails and enjoy a wide range of water games.
  • A suitable car to explore gorgeous Florida is one that meets all your needs and matches your personal style and preference. Fortunately, you can find a wide range of car models and features in Florida, which you can easily book through KAYAK. For instance, if you want to explore the place in style and with utmost convenience, you can book an electric car from one of the numerous Florida hire car companies. If you are in Florida for a short business or holiday stay, an economy hire car might be an affordable and convenient choice. On the other hand, visitors travelling as a group can choose a van or SUV for utmost comfort and convenience throughout the travel.
  • You might want to book your hire car in advance if you want to land better deals. You can book up to three months before your travel date, when the prices are generally more competitive. Prices almost always shoot up as the travel date approaches, and you might end up paying more if you book within the last week of your travel. They tend to be even higher in the last 48 hours. For one reason or the other, you might need to book a car at the very last hour. Even so, it is still advisable that you book online. This allows you to analyze and compare different rates from different companies, and save time at the agency.
  • Book your rental car in Florida at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
