Fort Lauderdale car rentals information
to get here and to get around town
Looking for a Fort Lauderdale car rental? Unless you’re planning on just staying in one place during your entire stay, you’ll most likely need a car to get around.
Most travelers to Fort Lauderdale wisely book their car rentals ahead of time through the Internet, whether as part of a vacation package or directly with a car rental company.
Car pick up is convenient because the car rental center is located on site at the Fort Lauderdale International airport at Terminal 1. Most of the car rental companies located inside the airport are large national companies.
There are a few off site companies that are smaller and may also present their own set of advantages. Local car rental companies are sometimes cheaper than the national companies.
Here’s a list of the car rental companies that you’ll be able to find on site at the airport. Most of them advertise special rates online, especially in low tourist seasons. Prices go up astronomically during the high season, and they do run out of cars to rent!Make sure to book early to get the best rate.
For most companies, the renter must be at least 25 years old and have a major credit card with enough of a credit limit for a deposit. Make sure you read and understand all car rental rules and regulations.
