Top tips for renting a car at Punta Gorda airport

  • One of the reasons that so many people choose to utilize car rental at Punta Gorda Charlotte County Airport (PGD) is that having a rental car is going to make it quite easy to visit some of the amazing destinations in this area on your own schedule and in a cost-effective manner. Once you arrive at the airport and pick up your rental car, you'll find the process of making your way to places like Fishermans Village, Ponce de Leon Park, Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, and the Military Heritage Museum a really easy thing to do for your entire group.
  • A really nice feature of car rental at Punta Gorda Charlotte County Airport is that this smaller regional airport still offers a dedicated rental car center that sits right across the road from the main terminal building. The airport strongly suggests that passengers utilize the crosswalks outside of the terminal building for their safety. All of the rental car companies inside the rental car center are available for passengers on inbound and outbound flights beginning at around 5 am. Each of the vehicles available for rent sits right outside of this rental car center in the adjacent parking lot.
  • Just as car rental at Punta Gorda Charlotte County Airport is really easy when you arrive at the airport, dropping off your car is just as easy. When you arrive at the airport, park in one of the dedicated parking spots for your rental car company and then lock your car and make your way back into the rental car center. Once inside, you can quickly drop off your completed contract and keys to your rental car agency, or for an even faster option, drop these items in the company's dropbox.
  • Some of the most difficult times to utilize Punta Gorda Charlotte County Airport car rental will be on Friday afternoons or at the start of busy holiday travel times when an abundance of travelers will be making their way to this beautiful part of Florida. At a smaller airport like this, you can also find difficult rental times when several flights arrive at the airport at the same time.
  • Book your rental car at Punta Gorda airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Punta Gorda airport

  • Which car rental companies are easiest at Punta Gorda Charlotte County Airport?

    Because this airport is home to around seven major global brands renting cars here, you will have an easy time utilizing any one of these companies in a quick and efficient manner for your rental car needs. One tip for travelers that are members of a loyalty rewards program for any one of these companies is to utilize that company at this airport to help speed up the process of picking up your rental car upon your flight arrival.

  • What are some of the amenities of the rental car center at Punta Gorda Charlotte County Airport?

    The rental car center itself does not offer many amenities as the purpose of the center is simply to house all the car rental companies. That said since the main terminal building is right across the street from the car rental center, it is very easy to access all of the great amenities inside of the terminal before and during your rental car process. This includes a huge selection of food and beverage options, including some wonderful food trucks that have locations in the short-term parking lot. The airport also offers some shopping options, free Wi-Fi in the terminal, as well as plenty of restroom facilities.

Drivers generally need to be at least 25 years old to rent a car, although drivers between 18 and 25 can rent a car with limits on the type of car available plus possible additional fees. Most of the rental car companies here will accept a limited amount of debit cards, but a safer option to ensure your rental is to bring a major credit card with you.

Super easy pickup and drop off in Punta Gorda. However, the truck we rented had the tint removed but not the adhesive. The windows were super sticky to the touch and would barely go down and getting them back up was a half hour task. ALWAYS check ALL window operations before driving away with your car!! Upon return, no one really cared but some manager gave us a discount as long as we promised to give a 5 star review when Alamo sent a survey!! Is that bribery??

Pros:

The kid behind the counter was nice, as he told me I could not rent a car.

Cons:

Maybe let people know when they rent a car that if they are picking it up from an airport that they MUST have a credit card in their name to rent it and that a debit card DOES NOT work. That's kind of important information!!! That way they don't get stuck there with 2 small kids who were scared they'd never get home for hours and have to have their elderly mother drive 3 hours in the middle of the night to pick them up to drive another 3 hours to get home by 4 am for the kids first day of school that morning. Luckily she was able to or we might still be there as there were no Uber drivers in the area and a cab would have been $300 for us. If you are going to REQUIRE something, you need to make sure people know that!!!!

Our flight was delayed so we rented a car for 3 hours to get away. Car obviously not inspected prior to us. Smelled like smoke. Dirty exterior. Documentation said it was full, but it was under 1/8th full of fuel. Upon return, no one around. Competitor rental company in same parking lot performing check-ins, said, he wasn't surprised. I see charged on my card, that I have no idea why.
