EasyCar Car Rental at Tampa Airport

Tampa International Airport is located in Florida, and just six miles from the city centre of Tampa, a popular city in this state of America. It features many attractions, ranging from historical sites and museums to amusement parks and zoos, and has some lovely towns and cities nearby, such as Clearwater and St. Petersburg. Passengers arriving at this airport are advised to rent a car for their vacation or business trip, from a car hire company such as Easycar Tampa International Airport. A private vehicle is the best way to move from one location to another, and there will be no hassles with trying to find schedules for the public transportation services.

The airport of Tampa has several buildings for passenger operations, but one main terminal for baggage claim purposes, ticket counters, check-in operations and other facilities that can usually be expected at an important airport such as this one. There are plenty of shops and restaurants, as well as wireless internet connections, banking services and currency exchange options. The Airside/Landside Terminal is connected to four satellite buildings, referred to as the Airsides A, C, E and F, and these buildings are where the airline gates are located. They also have the airline lounges and duty-free stores. Passengers will arrive at one of these buildings, depending on the origin of their flight and the airline carrier with which they are flying, and will make their way to the main terminal by the airport’s automated people mover system, which was the first of its kind to be used in the world at an airport. The trains are free of charge, and frequently available throughout the day and night. They are also the only way to reach the baggage claim halls in the main terminal.

The Tampa International Airport car hire companies are located close by to the baggage claim facilities, and are open twenty-four hours a day. They offer a wide range of vehicles for hire, affordable car rental rates and several optional programs that help to expedite the rental process. Easycar will expect their primary renters, and anyone who plans to drive the vehicle, to be at least 21 years of age, and to be present at the rental counters to collect the vehicle with their valid drivers license and major payment card. US driving licenses and Canadian-endorsed licenses are accepted, and the credit cards that may be used include American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Diner’s Club Int’l, Discover, AT & T Capital, GE Capital and Sears. A few car hire companies have their own charge cards as well.

In terms of the minimum age requirements for persons hiring a vehicle, 21 is acceptable, however, drivers younger than 25 will pay additional charges for young drivers insurance, and may not have access to all vehicle categories. Luxury and Premium cars, convertibles and the larger or luxury SUVs may only be available to older persons. The additional charge for the insurance could amount to around $30.00 per day of car hire, and per underage driver registered on the rental contract.

Tampa Airport handles international flights as well, and therefore will have passengers who are arriving from a different country. Persons from foreign countries may hire a vehicle, however, they may need to produce a few extra documents, such as an International Driving Permit and a valid passport. Easycar will be able to provide further details regarding the requirements for car rental from Tampa Airport.

Easycar’s vehicles are divided into various categories, and are hired accordingly. They can be arranged as an Easycar one way hire, which is when the customer will return the vehicle to a location other than Tampa International Airport. One way hires may be driven and delivered to any area in Florida, and often to locations in the surrounding states as well. However, cross-border rentals are sometimes not permitted (when the vehicle is driven into Canada, Mexico or Alaska). Confirm with Easycar the charges for a one way hire, and to where the rented vehicle may be returned. Regardless of the return location, bring your car back with a full tank of fuel if fuel was not purchased at the start of the rental period, or as empty as possible if fuel was purchased. Be sure to take good car of your rented car, returning it in the same condition as it was received.

A few of the more popular cars available from Easycar with lower rental rates include the Chevrolet Aveo and Chevrolet Cobalt. They are light on fuel and an excellent choice for city driving. They are also quite capable of driving to further locations. Slightly larger is the Pontiac G6 and Chevrolet Impala (a good family-sized car), and SUVs from Easycar include the Ford Escape, Chevy Equinox and Dodge Durango. More elegant cars and convertibles are available as well, and Minivans are popular for groups of travellers or for larger families. The Dodge Grand Caravan seats up to seven passengers. All vehicles can be hired with additional items of equipment. A child seat will be required when travelling with babies or young children, and a satellite navigation system could be your ‘best friend’ when driving in unfamiliar territory.

Specifically for disabled drivers, Easycar hand controls are available from Tampa International Airport. Hand controls are free of charge. Contact Easycar, or another of the Tampa International Airport car rental companies for further details.
