Due to the location of Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Sanibel Online highly recommends that you rent a car if you do not already have one. Most accommodations are not within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. To help you out, I've included links below to the Rental Car agencies available at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers:

Alamo Avis
Budget Dollar Rental Car
Enterprise Rent-a-car Hertz
Thrifty Rental Car

You will need a valid driver's license, proof of auto insurance and a major credit card. Some rental agencies also have a minimum age requirement. Most major car rentals are available at the airports above. Please make reservations in advance.

For those of you that will not have a car, you can use these folks for transportation to the islands.
