Airport Car Rental
Tampa Airport is the main gateway to the Tamp Bay area and serves more than 20 million passengers a year. Given that the area is spread out, you will definitely need a rental car unless planning to only stay in downtown Tampa.
An interesting fact is that the world’s first commercial passenger flights took place at Tampa Airport. In 1914, a heavier-than-air flying boat made its first scheduled flight from Tampa to St. Petersburg, Florida.

Nearest gas station
For those coming from Clearwater, it is best to not follow the signs to the airport and instead exit onto W. Spruce St. and then take a right when you reach Westshore Blvd. where you will find a Shell station on your right two blocks down.
If approaching the airport from Tampa on I-275 you will likewise want to exit onto Westshore Blvd. and take a right. There will be a Shell station on your left. Continue on Westshore Blvd. afterwards and look at Google Maps to see how to get to the Rental Car Center.
Finally, if you are approaching from Tampa along W. Kennedy Blvd., you will pass multiple gas stations on your way.
