KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cocoa Beach

  • Getting car rentals in Cocoa Beach offers you several benefits. Driving Coco Beach car rentals is the best way to experience the city. You get the freedom to drive to any location and take as many pit stops as you wish, taking in all the adventure on the road. If you are visiting Cocoa Beach for the first time, car rentals offer reliability and safety hard to find with public transport. Car rentals in Cocoa Beach save you from the hassle of catching bus schedules or steep fares outside your travel budget. You can explore the city’s top attractions like Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier, The Dinosaur Store, and Lori Wilson Park with a car rental.
  • When flying to Cocoa Beach, you will arrive at Melbourne International Airport (MLB), about 15.18 miles from the city center. The car rental counters are near the baggage claim area, while the cars are directly across from the terminal building. The car rental center has various car rental companies, including National, Budget, Alamo, Avis, Thrifty, Hertz, and Enterprise. Some operate 24 hours daily, while others offer after-hour services for easy pick-up. The airport is a busy facility, so consider making prior arrangements to avoid waiting in line for long hours.
  • Keeping the city's driving laws is crucial to navigating car rentals in Cocoa Beach safely. All drivers and passengers must have seat belts on.

These hours are typical for road accidents and delays. Consider avoiding these hours and driving during off-peak hours. However, if you must, avoid the city’s traffic hotspots like SR A1A.

Pros:

I did not like it very much! When I went to get the car on Merrit Island the seller made me use another card, different from what I had used in the app, and paid for it. With this he must have created another reservation, resulting in a duplicate payment upon the return of the vehicle. How do I g

Cons:

I paid twice for the rent. One when I applied for the app, already cashed in my Debit card, and another when I returned the car. Besides the fact that when I went to get the car on Merritt Island the seller did not want to accept the same card that I made the payment in the Kaiak app.

Pros:

Easy to book.

Cons:

Contacted support and all is ready, we go to the lot, person advises us that they have no cars available, once we tell him that we need it just for a few hours within the city limits then he finds us something, however problems hit when registering cards, no debit maestro accepted and it didnt specify on the siten my friend gives a card and accepted but then her DL was required, then he advises us that i cannot rent as i am 23 and only over 25 can rent a car, while on the website it says that it is possible to rent it just is more costly which is fine. Stupidly on the website my card was accepted and i brought cash for incidentals and offered to pay full in cash but did not accept it. So we never got our car and it ruined our day, not to mention walking in rain afer all that... stupid.

Pros:

We liked the fact that we could get an American car (Chevy Malibu) since we are more familiar with American cars.

Cons:

The first car had a hole in the front seat! None of the cars had been washed. I was told that they had just been trucked in so apparently no time to wash!!! Did not care for the woman who took care of us but later a man helped us when we insisted on a different car. He was VERY nice - sorry I did not get his name. Then when we turned the car in at Jacksonville airport, they charged us $14.95 even though we had filled the tank ourselves! So we had to go into the Budget desk to get a refund. Since they only had (2) people working, we had to wait probably 15-20 minutes. Needless to say, we probably will not get another Budget car in the near future if ever!!!

We went on a cruise and were picked up immediately by a shuttle that took us to pick up our car. The gentleman that picked us up helped with our bags and was friendly. Our reservation was suppose to be at 12 but we were able to get our car a few hours early. It was convenient, accommodating, the car was in nice condition, staff was friendly, and the price was very affordable. Will definitely be doing business with them again.

Cons:

The office was closed and afterhours drop off instructions were confusing, complicated, and bizarre. The only available parking spot when we arrived was handicapped, which I parked in anyway, and by the time we left two more cars had pulled in with no place to park. Felt uncomfortable dropping the car keys into a mail chute but that was the instruction. It was all just weird.

It was extremely busy however every person on line was “priority@ except me. So every time they called someone new it was “priority”. I ended up getting passed by a lot of people and waiting for longer than I felt necessary for my car. So that felt like an insult because I am not priority because I never travel because I am a teacher. So how about we start prioritizing teachers and stop prioritizing business people. Thanks

Pros:

Car was clean. Once we got to the Cape Canaveral office things went well.

Cons:

We waited for about an hour for a pickup at Port Canaveral. We watched as every other passenger that had disembarked the ship with us got picked up by multiple trips of all of the other rental car vendors' shuttle buses. Then it was just us Thrifty folks waiting in line and wondering if they would ever come. Repeated phone calls to the Thrifty office in Cape Canaveral went unanswered. Eventually we were picked up. But I will certainly never rent from Thrifty again at this location.
