Having a car is most beneficial when visiting Sanibel Island. Whether you’ll be traveling south to the lighthouse bay, taking a trip north to Captiva, or taking a day trip to Fort Myers, a rental car will give you the comfort and convenience you need. Moreover, with the limited public transport options on the island, a car is your best bet of making the most of your trip to Sanibel Island. Similarly, a rental car gives you the freedom and flexibility to plan your trip at your own pace. Whether it’s a cool convertible or a practical family minivan, it’s all bookable through KAYAK.
Before getting on the road in a Sanibel Island car rental, there are a few things to know. Most major roads have a maximum speed limit of 35 mph and 30 mph on all other roads unless posted. The Sanibel traffic police are rigorous in enforcing the speed limit. Don’t be surprised when you find there are no traffic lights on the island, only stop signs. Finally, you will find tolls on the Sanibel Island Causeway, the only road in and out of the island.
Most rental companies on Sanibel Island require you to be at least twenty one years old to qualify for a car rental. You also need to present a valid driver’s license and a credit card in your name to get a Sanibel Island car rental. However, you might be restricted to only a few vehicle classes, with full-size and premium SUVs, passenger vans and minivans, and luxury or specialty cars reserved for drivers twenty five and over.
