Avis canceled my reservation and didn’t have a vehicle for me. Priceline and Kayak still had the reservation as active but Avis wouldn’t honor it. There were no cars in all of Miami so I had to Uber 40 minutes to Fort Lauderdale to get a car just to turn back around and drive to Key West. No one at Priceline or Avis was helpful and Kayak is closed on Sunday. Highly do not recommend booking a car through a third party.

Bait and switchNothing good to sayThe lady wanted to put us in a beatle. I ordered 5 passenger car with two bags. She wanted to make us pay $70 more for a similar car. I showed her what we ordered and insisted she upgrade us if she didn't have what we ordered. After threats to call Avis and complain she then was able to find a car and keep the original price. Not happy with how she handled herself or represented the company. Your staff needs to be retrained. I will question if I will use your company again because of how we were treated.

The car had a warning light on saying “maintenance required. Return to depart”. Not ideal when hiring a car. It didn’t feel right either. When I mentioned it in return to Budget, the Budget man was very dismissive. Not impressed with service.

Kayak Allowed me to make a reservation but when I arrived budget did not have any cars available to rent so why doesn’t KAYAK allow a reservation to be made if the facility has no cars available. This happens over and over again with other car rental agencies booked via KAYAK

3.6 MediocreDec 8 2018
Not a great experience at allThe car was a gas saver and comfortable.I got to the place at 8:15am and it was not opened. The sign says open at 8am, but only the car maintenance guy was there and he did not have the keys to the door. He called the manager of that location, and the manager stated that the person that opens at that location had to go to the hospital; I can understand that. I then called Budget customer service and they said that there was a Budget 20 blocks up the road, but that we needed to find a way to the other location. They have a shuttle that goes from the airport to that location, but could not have the shuttle pick us up and take us to the location; which is further from the airport from the location that two others and I, who had reservations, were waiting for. Finally an employee opened the door at 8:55am. The car that I got had damage on it and you can tell that its been in an it. Also, I had to argue back and forth with the maintenance guy for a few minutes to put air in a tire that my wife and I can obviously see was flat. We had to travel nearly 300 miles to our destination and would not take the risk of riding on a flat tire.

Hertz overbooked its reservations. On the morning of pickup, the staff told us there were no cars available for the 6 people waiting with confirmed reservations. Took them about 2 hours to scramble to find other cars for us. It wasn't the fault of the staff at the location, but of Hertz Corporate overbooking their vehicles.

Nothing.Lady at the desk was incredibly rude and unhelpful. Reserved a convertible. Not only did they not have a convertible, but they actually didn’t have ANY cars available at the time we reserved. And we had a tour booked that we were trying to make. After an hour they told us that they’d located a car but that it was getting an oil change and therefore may take another hour. So we canceled, ubered to Budget, and got a car on the spot.

Nothing - location hard to find, no cars available after making advanced registration, no warning to customers it would be 4 to 6 hours to get a car. This location was horrible.The location could have ensured my car was not given to someone else, along with the 5 other people there they told the same thing, after advanced reservations were made. I had to Uber to the MIA airport to pick up a car - will Alamo cover those additional costs?

It was awful!! NEVER recommend this agency. We arrived by 8:00 am as per the agreement. They were not open on time. They then declared THEY HAD NO CAR! They never said they were sorry, helped to find a solution or empathized. The associate and the manager just “walked away” I have never had such a horrible example of customer service.They could have worked on finding another vehicle for us. We were on time constraints and needed to leave that morning. We arranged everything in advance so as not to have issues. The nearest agency was a cab ride away. They were helpful, efficient, polite, respectful and pleasant!! Unfortunately we had to pay THREE times the price!
2.0 MediocreMay 22 2021
Thrifty did not have a vehicle available and did not help in finding another location with available cars. Blamed it on the third party supplierThey need to honor a pre-paid, or any other, advance reservation. I will never use them again and not sure about ever using a third party on-line booking site like Kayak, priceline, etc...
2.0 MediocreApr 30 2021
Nothing.I made the reservation days in advance and they didn't have a car. They said I could be wait listed for much later in the day. I went to talk with them the day prior to ensure that had a vehicle and they were closed during supposed open hours of operation. I had to alter my plans due to Thrifty not working with the third party reservation. I had not been contacted by Thrifty to say no car available.

1. The vehicle we ordered was not available. 2. The Vehicle was not full with fuel. 3. We needed to change the drop-off location and it would cost more than then entire week of rental.Change fees should not be more than an entire rental for one full week. Thrifty is stealing.
8.0 ExcellentAug 11 2019
Rental location was only 1 block away from our first hotel in Miami Beach, so that was great. We then used the car to drive to the Keys.Rental agent was very pushy about buying the toll road option.
6.4 GoodJun 19 2017
The employee arrived late, after the opening hour. We can't dropoff outside business hours ans there is no free parking on Miami beach, so we had to pay USD$19 for the parkijng (1 night) to bring back the car the morning after... Which makes the overall rental price much higher than expected.

The car was given to me quickly because someone had just dropped it off who I had befriended in line. Staff was professional. Car was very nice.I was outraged that I was not alerted to the fact that my rental was due BEFORE my scheduled drop off time, or I would incur a $150 + taxes and tolls ($25) fee. I called to say I would be 45 mins late to drop off and was told the Miami Beach office would be closed, there was NO garage, NO key drop box, and my ONLY option was to pay $150 to return it to Miami Airport. Given that this office had ZERO grace period and had not alerted me to the severity of this penalty in advance, I do not believe the company should have charged me this fee. It is ludicrous and I will not use this company again.

Top tips for renting a car in Miami Beach

  • Miami Beach, like most destinations in the U.S., is best explored by car. Public transportation in the city is very slow and often the wait times are long. For instance, to go from Miami Beach to the Dolphins’ stadium would take just 25 minutes in a car, but via public transportation it would take over an hour and a half.
  • If you are planning on picking up a rental car after landing at Miami International Airport then head to the MIA Rental Car Center with the MIA Mover, located on the third floor between the Flamingo and Dolphin Garages.
  • Pedestrians, particularly pedestrians out walking their dogs, are very common in Miami Beach. As a result, jaywalking is also a common occurrence and drivers should keep their eyes open for any unexpected street crossers. Pedestrians will be most common in the afternoon and evening hours, so keep that in mind when driving around Miami Beach.
  • As a major city, Miami does have its fair share of rush hour traffic. The morning rush hour is the lighter of the two and only lasts from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. most mornings. The afternoon and evening rush hour is a bit more severe and lasts from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during the work week. US-1 and I-95 are by far the worst culprits for rush hour traffic, so drivers should make an effort to avoid them during the busiest times.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Miami Beach for $37 or less
  • Book your rental car in Miami Beach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Miami Beach are around -15% cheaper than other car types, on average
