10.0 ExcellentMay 30 2021
Cons: Nothing the service was great as well as the product.
10.0 ExcellentMay 19 2021
Pros: The people on both ends were terrific. Friendly and helpful to the maxCons: With the gas shortage it was a little scary leaving on a four hour trip with a little more than 1/2 a tank of gas. Not the fault of Alamo, it was just the reality for me and Alamo. Happily, by driving 5mph under the speed limit, I was able to save gas and extended the expected range of travel by over 45 miles.
8.0 ExcellentMay 17 2021
Pros: Easy, helpful, clean vehicleCons: 1 of the electric windows did not work.
5.6 OkayAug 6 2018
Cheaper if I went directly to alamoPros: Check in and out process was easyCons: The price was twice as much as it would have been if I just went to Alamo directly
7.6 GoodMay 3 2017
Nissan Rouge one of the most uncomfortable cars I've ever drivenPros: Alamo folks were great, car was clean and the rental process was effortless.Cons: The Nissan rouge was one of the worst cars I've ever rented, it was clean, good on gas.. but very under engineered cars,
10.0 ExcellentMar 3 2017
Alamo RentalPros: Great car (Jeep Renegade) at affordable price. Pickup and drop off close and convenient.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 27 2017
Pros: The price of one way drop, also the quality of the vehicle Hundyia Centre
2.0 MediocreNov 24 2016
RUDEPros: NothingCons: The lady at the counter was extreamly rude! I also never recieved a car due to over booking at this location and had to take a $500 taxis ride to get to my location. When I asked why I couldn't get my car she was even more rude when explaining it to me. I'm still not sure as to why it would let me book online if they were out of cars. It was a horrible experience
10.0 ExcellentAug 30 2016
Cons: Had to wait a couple of extra hours to get a vehicle because I reserved through a third party. Wasn't a big deal, however if I were to be in a rush that would have been a big problem.
4.8 OkayAug 6 2016
Bad experiencePros: The car was in good shape and ran well.Cons: The girl at the counter was not friendly and didn't take the time to explain things. When we brought the car back, it was in good shape, we filled up the tank, threw out all of our trash, etc. An hour later we get a call from Alamo saying there is a scratch on the drivers side that we are responsible for. We went back to check it out, and the scratch was just a scuff mark that was easily removed with a wash. Next time we will take pictures of the car before and after delivery.

2.0 MediocreMar 8 2021
Pros: The staff was nice and the drop-off was easy.Cons: The car was not clean. There was a filmy goo-type substance on the dash and interior. It also smelled faintly of cigarettes. It was also the oldest rental car I've ever driven and it was frustrating that I couldn't even hook up my Bluetooth music because the car was so old.

Pros: Very easy pickup and dropoffCons: Vehicle was sandy when received
5.6 OkayJul 6 2019
Cons: I called to extend my contract for a day and was quoted (automated) 100 dollars extra, then transferred to an agent. The agent was abrupt and offered no help even though I had a quote on my contract of 34 dollars, as well as Kayak.com to rerent. I actually had to drive to the airport to rerent.

2.0 MediocreMar 20 2021
Pros: NothingCons: They did not have a car for my reservation upon arrival and had no other cars, therefore I had no car that say, making me late for my job.
6.0 GoodMar 15 2021
Pros: Staff was professional and easy to work with.Cons: The vehicle smelled like cigarette smoke. It took me a couple of days to get the odor out of the vehicle. I was not given return instructions and had to make the return in a Sunday when Enterprise is closed. There is no one you can speak to for instructions or help. There should be weekend check in information sheets or something on the building/door to assist customers. Not everyone has computer access or knows how to navigate websites to find such information.
4.0 OkayDec 21 2020
Pros: Drop off was easy. There was some confusion about driving on a toll road and who owned the vehicle and what I should do. I think that should be simple and clear. The stuff is cheerful if not super knowledgeable.Cons: All the vehicles were very dirty, even the one marked "clean". The vehicle they had chosen for us was only a 12-passenger after we had reserved a 15-passenger, confirmed we needed 15, and made an extra deposit. We had to go kill an hour in town and come back for a pickup which they admittedly only sprayed down with Lysol and did a quick vacuum. It was really gross and I had to clean it myself to feel comfortable putting my kids in it. There were visible smears of some substance on the dash and visors etc. The fuel was not full at pickup. I wanted to see how far off it was and it took $6 to fill it. I returned it completely full and told them, but they were apathetic. That's disappointing. *They did offer me a 10% discount for it not being clean. I appreciated that (I did not ask, they offered). This indicated they were aware the vehicle was sub-standard.
8.0 ExcellentMay 12 2017
Pros: They were quick in and out the door with my rental.Cons: I was not happy with the pick up site. I requested airport pick up and I was sent to an off site location.
10.0 ExcellentApr 18 2017
Pros: EverythingCons: Nothing
5.6 OkayApr 13 2017
Excellent customer service when dropping off car in AtlantaPros: I had no wait time.Cons: The car I reserved was not available. Was given an upgrade but was not offered any choices. The car I got was not economical on gas, not a smooth ride, and had no modern electronics inside.
10.0 ExcellentMar 18 2017
Awesome servicePros: They dropped me off at the airport. I had 0 issues.Cons: Pushed the insurance a little harder than I expected. I said no about 4 times.
7.2 GoodNov 14 2016
Cons: The car was not ready at pick up. It had not been checkd when it had been brought in. No gas in the tank. Tires were low. I had to take it to a tire shop to have the tires checked out and filled with air.
10.0 ExcellentSep 11 2016
Pros: Everything was fine with the car

Jacksonville NC to Myrtle Beach SCPros: John was very accommodating and the airport was easy to move around. He even went out and got the car for us as my husband is handicapped and we were his last customer.Cons: The wait time at the airport desk to get the car that was already reserved. John needed help that day! He was very nice, but out-manned with the requests for cars at the time. Wish we could have had a van instead of an SUV. Cost was HIGH I thought compared to a van rental for the same number of days in Florida.
6.0 GoodDec 18 2017
Vehicle was not cleanPros: Gas mileage was very good for a large SUVCons: The SUV was not washed. Dog hair all over the rear luggage area. The back of the front passenger seat was dirty with shoe prints from a child and the carpet on the driver side was dirty.
6.4 GoodOct 21 2017
Pros: Gas mileage was great. Prepay your return tank price was well below current price in the area. Still the best price for my area over Enterprise.Cons: Car windows were so dirty I had to stop and clean them before I could drive anywhere. Rental car fees are just outrageous.I prepaid the car on a credit card but you still get socked for a $200 depisit on top of the rental fee.
5.6 OkayAug 21 2017
Cons: Someone had smoked in the car previous to our renting it. Not good, they had no other cars for us to rent. Had to wait 30 minutes for the car to be cleaned.

After hours!Pros: I got to Jacksonville,NC airport late, around 11pm on the 30th of July. There was a Hertz employee; African american female w/ glasses. She was the most pleasant, most helpful and understanding young lady I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. She stayed and waited for my delayed flight to arrive even though she had to be back to work on the 31st at 7am. She took the time to answer all my questions and even though she was tired she was extremely pleasant and helpful. I must admit it is because of this wonderful young lady when i will most certainly use HERTZ again.Cons: N/A

Top tips for renting a car in Jacksonville

  • Jacksonville is a water-adjacent city with several parks, museums and opportunities for outdoor adventure. The New River, which comprises the city’s southeastern edge, is perfect for kayaking, diving and other aquatic recreation. With all this available to visitors, it’s a prime destination for outdoor adventure. If you’re heading here on vacation, you’ll want to secure a car rental in Jacksonville to ensure you have access to these sites and nearby spots, including the Croatan National Forest. A vehicle also ensures that you can carry gear with you and explore at your leisure. While the city does have some transportation options, the routes are limited and make reaching many of the exciting sites either time-intensive or impossible. Rentals are also likely to be more cost-effective than opting for taxis and rideshares, too. 
  • If you’ve secured a Jacksonville car rental for your trip to the North Carolina city, you can pick it up at Albert J. Ellis Airport (OAJ). Many of the top brand-name rental car companies are represented at OAJ, including Budget, Avis, Enterprise, Hertz and National. To find the desks for these companies, simply head toward the baggage claim area that is situated to the right of the terminal as you’re exiting the building. There are also rental facilities in town: an Enterprise on Marine Blvd. and a Hertz on Western Blvd.
  • Residents and visitors in Jacksonville rely on personal vehicles for transportation, so the streets are often crowded. While driving here, you’ll want to stay alert for other vehicles and, whenever possible, have a clear sense of your directions prior to heading out on the road. While driving downtown or near urban parks, keep an eye out for pedestrians and be prepared to yield to people crossing the road at crosswalks or even where no crossing is designated.
  • There are two major roadways that service Jacksonville: U.S. 17 and North Carolina Highway 24. Both cut through the city and support a network of other frequented expressways used by commuters heading to and from work. While traffic in Jacksonville is not significant, there are windows of rush hour that you’ll want to be aware of, which are between roughly 6am and 7:30am and 4:30pm and 6:30pm.
