KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Punta Gorda

  • Car rentals in Punta Gorda give you the flexibility to explore this scenic town and to visit nearby cities, like Cleveland and Port Charlotte. Having a rental car is convenient for not only getting to places within the city limits but also locations that are further from downtown, such as the Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park, which spans over 70 miles and can be reached from the city center by car in approximately 25min. Having your own transportation will also allow you to travel throughout the region more quickly, rather than having to rely on the local bus.
  • Punta Gorda Airport’s car rental center can conveniently be found right next to Bailey Terminal. It’s within walking distance from the main airport building, and you can follow the designated crosswalks to arrive there safely. There are several different companies for you to choose from for car rentals in Punta Gorda, including Avis, Budget, and National.
  • The city is known for having many small and winding streets, so adding a GPS system to Punta Gorde car rentals can be an easy way to help you navigate and prevent yourself from getting lost. Because of the beautiful Florida sunshine, there are often many cyclists and pedestrians, particularly in the city center, so pay extra attention to your surroundings when you’re behind the wheel to avoid any collisions.
  • As many of the locals work in neighboring cities, there’s frequent traffic on Highway 41 during rush hour, which is between 8-9am and 5-6pm, so try to avoid taking this road during the early morning and the evening if possible. Many visitors also flock to Punta Gorda in the summer months to be by the ocean, so roads may be more congested than normal during this time. If you’re on a schedule or looking to catch a flight, keep these times in mind when planning your route.
  • Book your rental car in Punta Gorda at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Punta Gorda are around 40% more expensive than other car types, on average

Video the entire outside of the vehicle before you leave the rental lot and check all window for proper operation. Our truck was really scratched up for only being a 2023 so the video will help dispute any damage claims when you return.

Super easy pickup and drop off in Punta Gorda. However, the truck we rented had the tint removed but not the adhesive. The windows were super sticky to the touch and would barely go down and getting them back up was a half hour task. ALWAYS check ALL window operations before driving away with your car!! Upon return, no one really cared but some manager gave us a discount as long as we promised to give a 5 star review when Alamo sent a survey!! Is that bribery??

Our flight was delayed so we rented a car for 3 hours to get away. Car obviously not inspected prior to us. Smelled like smoke. Dirty exterior. Documentation said it was full, but it was under 1/8th full of fuel. Upon return, no one around. Competitor rental company in same parking lot performing check-ins, said, he wasn't surprised. I see charged on my card, that I have no idea why.
