KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea

  • Hiring a car rental in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is wise. A Lauderdale-by-the-Sea car rental is suitable for you if you want to tour this Florida town, given that it will afford you the opportunity to travel directly and comfortably from one point to another at whatever time you like. It will also allow you to check out attractions in the neighboring towns of Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Hallandale Beach, Dania Beach, Davie, and Fort Lauderdale.
  • If you intend to fly to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, you can land at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) or Miami International Airport. Both airports have car rental agencies, including Ace, Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Payless, Sixt, and Thrifty. At FLL, the counters are at the airport’s Rental Car Center, adjacent to Terminal 1, and their pickup garage is a few steps from the center.

  • You will enjoy a stress-free driving experience if you get a car rental in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, given that many of the roads in this town are well-marked, and a good number of the local road users adhere to the set traffic regulations.

I was scammed over $100 on my car return in Miami. No one there to receive the vehicle so we dropped it off with a full tank of gas that was just filled at the gas station beside the car rental return. My final bill had $103 added to it to top up 7 gallons of fuel. Do not drop your car off without someone signing off your final invoice

Pros:

First guy in Charleston told us it would be $210 at pick up and made us buy the fuel package (so we didn’t have to fill up before we dropped off the car) and told us that they charge for a full tank and refund you the difference based on fuel level at drop off. (LIE) the woman at drop off refused to refund the difference (we dropped off with half a tank left) she made us leave and drive 10 minutes to the nearest gas station and fill up (only cost $20 and they tried to charge $80) and after dropping it off she tried to charge us extra for the time we had the car!! We had it less than 24 hours and she tried to charge us 2 days rate. She finally gave up trying to rob us but delayed us just enough time to miss the shuttle and have to pay to get to our cruise. Never will we use Budget car rental again!!!
