Tampa International Airport has one of the highest car rental markets among US airports. Passengers can choose to rent through on airport or off airport car rental companies. There are rental counters situated across the walkways of the Red Baggage Claim Area and Blue Baggage Claim Area. If your preferred Tampa Airport car rental company doesn't have a rental counter at the airport, then you can take the courtesy vehicle service to get to the depot of the rental car company. The shuttle can be found at the Commercial Ground Transportation Quadrants, which is situated on the corners of the Baggage Claim Level.

The US government returned Drew Field to the City of Tampa after World War II. Because of the airfield's expansion, some of the airlines at Peter O. Knight Airport moved to Drew Army Field. In 1950, Trans Canada Airlines started offering international flights thus the name of the airport was changed to Tampa International Airport.
