Once you've landed at Tampa International Airport, you'll want to rent a car and drive across Tampa Bay to St. Petersburg and explore an area Spanish conquistadors visited in the 16th century and now home to a museum housing another notable Spaniard's works—those of surrealist Salvador Dalí. Your rental car will also get you to—depending on the time of the year and your inclination—Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or Tampa Bay Lightning games. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location
f you're arriving in Tampa by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Avis, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty all have locations in Tampa International Airport (TPA). Alamo and Payless have pick-up counters that are just a shuttle ride away. Expedia can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)


Picking the rental car that's right for you
Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, minivans, and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Tampa, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing
Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
