Florida is a large state and many people arrive at its main airports such as Miami International Airport and Orlando International Airport. All of our airport branches are within reach of the city centre; for example, our Tampa Airport branch is near Tampa Bay on Interstate 275 just 9 miles from downtown Tampa while Fort Lauderdale Airport is just 2 miles from the city centre. No matter which airport you arrive at, you are sure of a comfortable and easy drive on well-marked Interstates and roads once you have collected your vehicle. If you arrive by train or bus your trip is likely to terminate in the city centre where you are certain to be close to one of our branches.
Car hire in Florida enables you to explore the sights and attractions at your own pace. Visit the famous theme parks like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios during your stay Orlando or plan a day trip to the world-famous Kennedy Space Centre via routes FL408 and FL528E. Discover Fort Lauderdale, the Venice of America, or hop in your rental vehicle and drive to the Florida Keys on US 1. Or, why not make the most of your Sat Nav and your proximity to the sandy beaches of the west coast like St. Petersburg and Sarasota while visiting Tampa? Be sure to keep some $1 notes handy for toll roads or use your Sixt App to add Express Toll Service to your extras.
Florida has an extensive road system that includes several major Interstates as well as a number of state highways. Most city centres, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando, are laid out in a grid-like pattern making them fairly easy to navigate. Traffic can be heavy at certain times and it is worth bearing in mind that the left lane on multi-lane highways is the 'fast' or 'passing lane'. Car hire in Florida also frees you from crowded public transport systems. Although bus services are available throughout the state, routes can be difficult to work out.
