The Port of Tampa doesn't have car rental facilities on-site. They are available nearby or through pick-up services. This is true of everything from a subcompact and economy to some sort of SUV or sedan. Likewise, limo services and shuttle services are available to get you from place to place.
Hertz operates nearby the Port of Tampa at a hotel. This means that you have to coordinate a pick-up or drop-off, so you should call ahead. They also have limited hours of operation, so verify that they're available when you need them at 813-226-4205. While the listed address is at 651 Channelside Drive (Cruise Terminal 2), it is actually served by the Marriott Waterside at 700 South Florida Avenue.
Another option may be to use Enterprise with their pick-up service, but you should verify that it's available by phone before making an on-line reservation.
We obviously hope that you will find a rental car to your liking and enjoy the great locations and fun events that the greater area has to offer. St. Pete is a short drive away and Orlando is fairly nearby as well.
Come and enjoy the fun in the sun that only the Sunshine State can offer.
