Top tips for renting a car in Gainesville

  • Whether you’ve come to see a game of the Florida Gators in the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, to visit the many golf courses dotting the city, or to check out museums and art, with a hire car you can easily reach any destination stress-free and on your own terms. Gainesville is also a great base for day trips to Newnans Lake or the Paynes Prairie Preserve, which are 10 and 15 minutes away by car, respectively.
  • Travelers arriving at Gainesville Regional Airport can rent a car directly from the airport facilities. Internationally renowned agencies like Avis, Alamo, and Hertz have onsite service desks and make it easy to start your time in Gainesville stress-free. When leaving the airport, head to NE State Road 24 to reach the city center in less than 10 minutes.
  • Drunk driving is an absolute no-go in Florida and the state has one of the toughest drunk driving controls and enforcements in the US. The legal alcohol limit lies at 0.08 BAC, so it is important to always make sure you don’t drink over the limit and drive. Also be aware that many intersections have red light cameras and hefty fines can be issued if you run a red light.
  • In order to experience a hassle-free driving experience in Gainesville, it is worth avoiding the roads at certain times of the day. During weekdays, rush hours increase traffic between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 8 pm. If there is a football game on the weekend, traffic can also dramatically increase around the Ben Griffin Stadium.
  • Book your rental car in Gainesville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
