  • When you fly to Orange Beach, you'll likely land at Pensacola Airport (PNS). Orange Beach offers several car-rental companies to choose from, each of which provides different types of cars to navigate the city and region according to your needs. The primary rental counters are located in the terminal at Pensacola Airport, near the baggage-claim area. It's recommended that you make a reservation in advance for your preferred vehicle to prevent any potential inconvenience, especially if you have specific preferences, e.g., a car with automatic transmission.
  • When driving car rentals in Orange Beach, knowing the city's speed limits and traffic regulations is important. The area is known for its heavy tourist traffic, so exercise caution and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. Look out for pedestrians near popular tourist spots, as they may be crossing the road unexpectedly. Be mindful of cyclists and share the road with them carefully. Keep an eye out for signage indicating parking restrictions and designated parking areas to ensure compliance with local regulations.
  • Although driving car rentals in Orange Beach is quite an experience, it presents challenges during certain times of day, especially rush hour (6 am to 10 am in the mornings and 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm in the afternoons). The main road affected by congestion during rush hour is Perdido Beach Boulevard, particularly near popular tourist attractions and beach-access points. It's advisable to plan your travel accordingly to avoid delays during peak hours. During the peak tourist season, which goes from spring through summer, increased traffic volume can make driving more challenging and parking spaces limited.

Pros:

Nothing. Description to follow.

Cons:

Ordered car online. Location was on a Pensacola Navy base which required DOD security clearance to enter. Appeared to be regular pick up location online. Called Enterprise to fix. They said they confirmed availability and transferred my reservation & sent me to location 10 miles away who had zero cars available. The wanted to give me 9 passenger “church style van”. Second location wanted to help but they had nothing. They said corporate representative never called to check availability. After waiting a long time another car was returned which they gave me. Hours wasted on our Florida vacation.
