KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Estero

  • Getting car rentals in Estero offers several traveling advantages. Driving car rentals in Estero is an excellent way of exploring the city. In addition, you get complete control over when to start and end your journey. Unlike public transport, car rentals let you bring any amount of luggage you wish to bring along. You also get the flexibility to drive to any location, take as many pits stops as you want, and take pictures. If you are a first-time visitor to Estero, car rentals offer security and reliability hard to find with public transport. You can drive to the city's top attractions, including Lovers Key State Park, Estero Bay, and Mound Key Archaeological Ste Park.
  • Travelers arrive at Estero via Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) when taking a flight. The airport provides services that let you pick up and drop off car rentals in Estero. RSW features a Rental Car Service Center on the ground level of the parking garage. Arriving passengers can proceed downstairs, exit the baggage claim area and walk across the street to the car rental facility. You do not require shuttle services as it is an easy walk. Car rental agencies at the airport include Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, National, Payless, Fox, and Easirent. Consider making earlier reservations to avoid waiting for services for long hours.
  • Keeping the city’s driving easy is essential for Estero's safe navigation of car rentals. All drivers and passengers must have their seat belts on. Children under four must be in approved car safety seats. Always yield to an approaching emergency vehicle or police car with sirens and flashing lights. Most roundabouts do not require stopping, so vehicles approaching roundabouts must yield circulating traffic. Always keep your headlights on when using windshield wipers. Drunk driving is prohibited. In highways with three lanes, the right is used for lower speed while the left is for overtaking.
  • Driving car rentals in Estero is easy but has a few challenges. The rush hours peak daily between 7 am and 8 pm and 4 pm to 6 pm. Rush hour is a prime time for motor accidents. Avoid driving during these hours. However, if you must drive, avoid the traffic hotspots like U.S Route 17.
  • Book your car hire in Estero at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Estero are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

I had to swap car in another city due to a mechanical problem. It took over an hour without any reduction in rate and a very low gas tank.

4,4 Mediocre

Dec 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car itself was nice and clean. Drop off was quick and easy.

Cons:

It took nearly 1.5 hours standing in line to get my rental - almost as long as it took to fly to FL! Then they said something was wrong with my rental agreement and they had me listed as returning the car to another airport! After that was corrected (for pickup/return to same location), they said the rate was wrong. After getting a manager to sort it out, they said something about an extra $50 due to the change, but the manager waived that. Drop off on return was easy and quick. When I returned home, I found a $700 charge on my credit card from Hertz IN ADDITION TO the original rental amount! They told me since I hadn't used the full 24 hours rental on return, they reverted it to an hourly rental for the final day at $38/hour!! After 2 hours on the phone with representatives, trying to get a clear explanation of this billing, it was finally reduced to $70. I will NEVER rent Hertz again. They blamed Kayak for they way reservations are made, my point to them was I paid for x number of days, returned the car earlier than anticipated, and should not be penalized, regardless of how the reservation was made. I unfortunatley left the original paperwork (rental agreement) in the car upon return, or I would have fought them even more over the $70.

How do you rent a car to someone when you close at 5pm and your flight gets in at 5pm. Never got the car I want my money back. You sold me something that you knew you could not deliver on.

the car did not have a full tank of gas when I picked it up ....the customer service person said he would make an adjustment , but the power was out because of hurricane Irma. I also told the drop off person who said they would make an adjustment once the Internet service was restored. I hope they are correct.

Asked for a Camry and was put in a small Jeep suv that had very uncomfortable seating. Lower Back has hurt for a couple days. I should have pushed for the Camry I reserved. Note the Jeep SUV was not an upgrade in my opinion.

They gave me a car with no spare tire equipment I had a flat at 6:05 and called the roadside assistance at 6:05 and they said a tow truck would pick me and the car up. At 8:30 after being on hold for over a hour they informed me that they haven’t even dispatched a tow truck. So the send an Uber to take me to the closest airport Avis in West Palm beach Fl and tell me they can give me a car until the tow truck brings the car. I was there till 1:00am closing and they finally gave me a car when they closed. 7 hours for a flat tire on a car that had no spare tire or tire equipment.

The lady working there was so nice. She was there for both pickup and drop-off. The price was very reasonable and there was no wait either time. Very quick in and out. Would definitely rent from that location again!

I was charged the rental cost on making my reservation, Kayak had no record of this transaction or the Insurance I paid for so when I get to the counter to pick up the car I’m charged again for what I paid a week earlier for I showed the counter person the charges came out of my account but that didn’t matter I have been charged twice so my experience with fox rentals was not good.

Our car was dirty. A bag of popcorn in the door. Covered in scratches. 75,000 miles .Our bill showed $80 for a drop off charge. She said it would not be on the final bill. She told me we would have toll charges and if I did not get a pass for $12 there would be an extra $15 processing fee. We paid. No toll needed. Slow service. I was embarrassed when I showed my wife and friends the car. Our friends dropped us off and waited 30 minutes with my wife while I waited and did paperwork. I already paid! I never give a negative review
