St. Petersburg, Florida: Blue Skies and Music
Your car rental is the key to your exploration of Florida’s Gulf Coast. Focus on the sunshine while you travel around St. Petersburg, also known as the Sunshine City, at your own pace. Leisurely explore art, beaches, water sports, and fine cuisine in this city in the Tampa Bay region.
Soaking in the Sunshine
Drive across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge from Pinellas to Manatee County. Below you, the waters of Tampa Bay swirl, boats float on the horizon, and the sun warms the blue sky. In front and behind looms the outline of the bridge. You are free in your car rental, so head for a day of fun in world-famous Siesta Key. Your one-hour drive to the Key brings you to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Picnic, sunbathe, shop, and bask in the Florida sun.
Getting Weird With Dali
Back in St. Petersburg, the Dali Museum is just five minutes away from the downtown area. At this museum, you can see the largest collection of Dali’s works outside of Europe.
For a change of pace, drive another five minutes or so from the Dali Museum to the Florida Holocaust Museum. Here, you'll learn about those who survived as well as those who suffered during the Holocaust.
Striking Up the Band
If you’re a lover of classical music, don’t leave St. Pete without seeing one of the Florida Orchestra’s performances. The orchestra performs at venues throughout the Tampa area during the season.
A tropical oasis in the middle of a busy city, St. Petersburg’s Sunken Gardens, a botanical paradise that is home to a flock of flamingos, is waiting for your visit. The gardens are about five minutes north of downtown.

For more information, please reach out to the Rental Company.

Rental car protections usually have the abbreviations CDW and LDW and protect the vehicle from robbery and damage in the event of collisions or accidents.
The protections against third parties have several abbreviations, such as ALI, SLI and others. In general, they protect the vehicle from third parties involved in collisions with your rental car.
To pick up the car you must leave a security deposit, also called a pre-authorization. The amount is "blocked" on the renter's credit card and "unlocked" after the return of the car on the same conditions.
It is possible to add optional items to your reservation, such as GPS, child car seat or booster seat. Take advantage of those items so you don’t have to worry about it later!
If someone else is sharing the wheel with you, they need to be added to the car rental agreement as an additional driver and meet the same documentation and minimum age requirements as the main driver or renter.
Check if your reservation has free mileage or not. Free mileage means you can ride as much as you like with the rental car and you will not pay extra depending on the ride.
