Getting around Fort Lauderdale in your airport car hire

Before you start your engine, take note of these driving tips for Fort Lauderdale.

  • Most of Fort Lauderdale’s roads follow a grid pattern. A handy tip for navigating the city is that avenues run north-south while streets run east-west.
  • There are many canals running throughout the city - so many that Fort Lauderdale is sometimes called the ‘’Venice of America’’! A GPS system or Google Maps can help you work around these and find the bridges.
  • There are a number of toll roads in Florida with varying payment options. Certain toll roads will require exact change if you’re paying in cash, while others will not accept cash at all. Speak to your rental provider to learn more, and plan your route and payment plan in advance.
  • Florida is susceptible to hurricanes and significant weather events from June through November. Check the forecast before you head out and if there is heavy rain on the horizon, adjust your plans.
