KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Venice

  • The advantages of choosing car hire in Venice are many, as immersing yourself in the culture can only really be done from the freedom of your own vehicle. Venice is located on the Gulf Coast of Florida and is surrounded by beautiful beaches, nature reserves, and other tourist destinations. Having a car allows you to easily visit places like Siesta Key, Sarasota, and Myakka River State Park, which may be a bit more challenging to reach by public transportation. You can also go on shopping sprees at the numerous malls and then carry your goods in the boot, which is not convenient on public transport.
  • When collecting your Venice car hire at Sarasota Bradenton Intl Airport (SRQ), you will need to catch a shuttle to the Rental Car Terminal, which is a separate facility located near the airport. The Rental Car Terminal is easily accessible from the main terminal building, and there are shuttle services available to transport passengers between the two locations. The distance between Venice and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) is approximately 34 km (21 miles) and will take about 30 minutes, if no traffic.
  • Take note when using car hire in Venice that the road infrastructure is well-developed and maintained, offering generally good driving conditions. The main roads in Venice include Interstate 75, which runs north-south and provides convenient access to other cities in Florida. There are also several state and local roads that connect different parts of the city, including US 41, known as the Tamiami Trail, which is a major road running through Venice.
  • In terms of traffic, Venice is not as heavily congested as larger cities like Miami or Tampa. Difficulties you might encounter when using your car hire in Venice are congestion at tourist peak seasons. During peak tourist seasons or events, traffic volumes can increase, especially in areas close to the beaches or popular attractions. Tourist season is during the winter months, when the weather is mild and pleasant. The exact timing may vary, but generally, the peak tourist season is from January to April. One unique aspect of driving in Venice is the presence of numerous roundabouts, so familiarise yourself with the rules about merging and yielding to other vehicles.
  • Book your rental car in Venice at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Venice?

    The type of car you choose for your car hire in Venice should suit your itinerary. Since Venice is a relatively small city with narrow streets and tight parking spaces, it's advisable to opt for a compact or mid-sized car. This will make manoeuvring easier and parking more convenient. If you plan on exploring further out of the city, then rather opt for a larger SUV-type car that has air conditioning, as it can get very hot in Venice.

  • What’s the speed limit in Venice?

    The speed limits in Venice are enforced, so drive with caution and watch for changing road networks. In most residential areas and in the city, the speed limit is 25 mph. This lower speed limit is in place to prioritise the safety of pedestrians and reduce the risk of accidents in areas with high foot traffic. The speed limit on multi-lane urban roads can range from 35 to 45 mph, and on rural roads and highways, speed limits can range from 55 to 70 mph, depending on the specific road and its characteristics. Interstate highways generally have a speed limit of 65 to 75 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Venice?

    On Venice Avenue, you'll find several car parks that provide convenient access to the downtown area. The hourly rates are usually around $1 (£0.77) per hour. There are multiple parking areas near Venice Beach, including the Venice Beach Car Park, the Pier Car Park, and the Municipal Car Park. Venice has a couple of public parking garages, such as the Centennial Park Parking Garage and the Venice Theatre Parking Garage. These garages usually charge an hourly rate, with the first hour being free or at a reduced rate. Throughout Venice, you'll find metered street parking with rates that are on average around $1 (£0,77) per hour.

Pros:

It was a good value! It beat the overpriced rates of Enterprise that are taking advantage of the tourists and locals in Venice, Florida. I drove 40 miles to get this Rental, and it was worth it.

Cons:

Staff was Great, but you need to get a drop box for rental keys for after hours and weekends.

confusion about pick up location meant I had to uber from airport to a distant suburban location and wait for more than an hour to pick up my car. return was not much better since no one ever answered the phone when I needed to extend the rental or change the drop off. the staff at the airport was not helpful but when we were finally assisted at Clark Road, the lady there was very nice.

Cons:

Booked a convertible it confirmed. Got there and they didn't have a convertible because on was returned earlier that day with damage. They could have called or emailed before I paid to Uber to the dealership. The woman that was helping was insanely abrasive and rude about it instead of apologetic. I understand things happen but I absolutely should have been notified before my reservation time plus she did not need to be so abrasive about it. Apologetic and calm if the way she should have approached it. I am extremely unsatisfied and will not book again.
