KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Dunedin

  • People considering car rentals in Dunedin have the right idea because this city on Florida's Gulf Coast is renowned for its natural wonders, which can be difficult to reach on public transportation. For instance, Honeymoon Island State Park is reachable by a causeway over St. Joseph sound. You can get there from downtown in Dunedin car rentals in about 10 minutes. Public transportation can drop you off close to Honeymoon Island State Park, but you will have to walk for almost an hour from the bus stop to actually get there. And while public transportation can get you to downtown Tampa in about 2 hours, Dunedin car rentals can get you there in about 30 minutes. Car rentals in Dunedin can save you time and give you the freedom to explore a fascinating city in a fascinating state.
  • The Tampa International Airport (TPA) is about a 30-minute drive east of Dunedin, across Old Tampa Bay. Such proximity and convenience make TPA an ideal location for securing Dunedin car rentals. Once your plane lands at TPA, take the SkyConnect train from the Main Terminal to the Rental Car Center, which houses over a dozen different rental car agencies. When it is time to return your rental vehicle, follow the rental car center signs as you approach the airport. Once you drop off your car, you can take the SkyConnect train to the TPA Main Terminal.
  • Dunedin is known for having a quaint downtown that bustles with art galleries, microbreweries, coffee shops, and niche boutiques. Drive slowly and with caution through downtown in car rentals in Dunedin, constantly being aware of all the pedestrian traffic. Dunedin is world-renowned for its scenic beauty, therefore, you may want to drive slowly, soaking in the sights. But more importantly, be aware of other drivers taking their time, especially on roads such as Victoria Drive, famous for its scenic beauty.
  • Because Dunedin is such a popular tourist spot and because it is so close to the bustling metropolis of Tampa, traffic can be congested almost any time of day, any time of year. However, traffic is a bit worse during rush hour, between 7 am and 9 am and then again between 4 pm and 6 pm. What makes rush hour even more dangerous for those driving car rentals in Dunedin is the steady flow of walkers, cyclists, and joggers who take advantage of the 37 miles of the Pinellas Trail or the Dunedin Causeway. Drive with caution if you are on either of these two very popular roadways.
  • Book your car hire in Dunedin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Dunedin are around 79% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Dunedin?

    Because Dunedin can be so congested with both pedestrians and cyclists, it would be good for safety’s sake that you were on the same level with them so that you can be hyper-aware of their presence. For this reason, choosing a small sedan makes a lot of sense when considering car rentals in Dunedin. A small sedan will easily make you feel ensconced in all traffic: vehicular, pedestrian, and bike, making it easy to stay vigilant and safe.

  • What's the speed limit in Dunedin?

    In most business districts in Florida, such as downtown Dunedin, the maximum speed limit is 30 mph. However, Dunedin can be so congested with pedestrians and cyclists that you may need to drive much more slowly. Once you get out onto interstates and major highways, the speed limit can go as high as 70 mph. Unless otherwise posted, the speed limit in Dunedin is 55 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Dunedin?

    There are plenty of free parking spots along access areas that run parallel to the Dunedin Causeway. However, you cannot park in these access areas overnight unless you obtain a permit, which is usually $10. In downtown Dunedin, you can find parking spots on many streets, including Douglas Avenue, Main Street, Milwaukee Avenue, Highland Avenue, Grant Street, and others. There are also almost 200 free parking spaces in the Monroe Street parking garage, except when there is a special event when parking is $5.

The van we rented was dirty at pick up - also had a lot of nicks and dents - we told the rep I called he said he knew but we didn’t do a walk around together - told him about it being dirty said u should have called me but I had to go pick up my daughter- he didn’t even say we will give you 19 percent off - or a discount on future rentals or any kind of regret -

For context, I travel for my job and I rent a lot of cars. Please avoid this rental location and Budget as a rule. This rental location was some fly by night outfit that has no quality control with their vehicles and I honestly felt unsafe with the car provided, and went elsewhere. The rental office was filthy and smelled awful. One person working who didn’t know about inventory and realized they had one car left. They hand me keys and I walk to car. It was covered in bird poop. I open door and it was filthy. Stain covered seats, dirty floors etc. They don’t even clean cars or check for safety issues between customers! The vehicle was clearly not cared for and no way was I risking my family’s safety in that tin can on wheels. I returned keys and found another location and rental. Kayak should not be offering this rental company as an option as it’s a full on liability. Avoid for your own safety.

I rent cars a lot for work travel. This location was downright frightening and shady. The office was dirty and smelly, which is okay otherwise, but they didn’t even seem to know what cars were available or what condition. They randomly gave me a key for one car they had left. I go to this car and it’s covered in bird poop all over and the inside was filthy and has stain covered seats. The car didn’t appear to be safe or taken car of. Avoid this location. I won’t book on kayak again for a car as this place was not safe. I refused the car and went elsewhere.

Car had malfunction with rear sensor so it impacted my driving experience. Called location to notify but was put on hold. Decided to drive to the location instead and staff member seemed to overwhelmed to help and had me wait until he took another order first. Car had ants within and would occasionally pop up and bite my friends in the legs. Finally associate was able to turn off sensor and showed me how to deactivate it each time I turned the car on. Overall a hassle but the price was okay.

The rental was dirty. Under the stowaway seats was filthy. I didn’t know how to operate the key fob, didn’t know you had to touch the fob to the start button. No one on the lot to help. The vehicle had minor damage on the passenger side that should have noted. Had to go back to the desk to have it noted. The desk personnel were friendly and helpful.

Pros:

I did not have to wait long to pick up my rental in Clearwater. The price was very good for a three day rental in a tourist area during peak season also.

Cons:

We had reserved a compact car, but when we got to the counter, the guy told me all they had was a pickup truck. It was nice and drove well, but was a little difficult to put our luggage in the back seat. We would not have had any room if we had a third or fourth person with us.
