There are many factors to consider when planning a trip.
You must decide what mode of transportation you will use to arrive at your destination. If you plan to fly, flights must be selected with thought given to departure and arrival times, length of flight and selection of airports for different legs of the trip.
Air travelers must also determine if they need a rental car. Airports around the country cater to these specific travelers and the Tampa International Airport is no exception. This travel hub on Florida Gulf Coast strives to make the transition from plane to rental vehicle as smooth as possible for visitors to the airport.
Nation-Wide Companies, One Convenient Location
Tampa International Airport has grouped the major car rental companies in near the baggage claim areas. Regardless of the baggage claim area assigned to your flight, the car rental desks are only a short trip across the walkway.
The airport is host to eight major car rental companies that include Enterprise, Hertz and Budget. If you opt to use the services of a local rental company, Tampa International allows a number of locally based companies to have courtesy shuttles to their pick-up locations.
