What is the best type of car to rent in Sarasota, FL?

Sarasota’s main attractions are its beaches, so our popular rentals in the area are convertibles and SUVs. Convertible rentals are great for romantic getaways or small parties, whereas SUVs and van rentals help transport those with large traveling groups. But don’t limit yourself to just these options. Read more about our other models below.

SUV Rental

No amount of beach gear will phase a 5-, 7-, or 8-passenger SUV. Fill some coolers to the brim and bring along some paddleboards.

Van Rental

With sliding doors, captain’s chairs, and plenty of storage, minivan rentals give you plenty to love. Enjoy ample comfort and storage on your way to the beach.

During family reunions and large group trips, you may need to pull out the big guns with our passenger vans.
