4.0 OkayJan 9 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy and the car was comfy.Cons: I made a reservation for a compact car the day before at a specific location and I get to the pickup location and they tell me I have to drive another 15 minutes to another location because they were out of compact cars. That part was fine but a heads up ahead of time would’ve been great. The car I was given at the new location was dirty. The trunk was full of old receipts, a roll of raffle tickets and other trash. The cashier at the new location tried to charge me 30 dollars more than i was quoted. Luckily I caught it before he ran my card.
10.0 ExcellentAug 22 2019
Pros: The gentlemen who works there is always friendly and very helpful
6.4 GoodNov 9 2018
Do you or do you not have a rental car?Pros: My daughter and I went to Budget office in St Augustine, FL to pick up car. First off, hours online were stated as 'opens at 7'am. The employee was not there until going on 8am. Another person told us they didn't have any cars. It was stressful waiting for person to arrive to check. Lucky for me, they did have a car. Headed up the road (an hour plus late) for Concord, NC. Arrived after hours at Avis-Budget office so I had to ca,l Budget for instructions. 'Charlie's helped me get a new drop off spot at Regional airport. I had NO idea how to vet t hete but a friend said they would get me to the airport, which was only 5 miles away. I was instructed to get there before 9pm when they close. We found our way there by 7:15 AND THEY WERE CLOSED!!! Had to drop keys in Dropbox. No one to check car. E etc. POOR BUSINESS!!

Excellent carPros: Excellent carCons: It was easy to pick up and easy to drop off so there was nothing that I did not like about this rental car and company.
4.8 OkayJan 22 2018
Pick up at unmarked Walmart? Took ages to figure it out.Pros: Budget representative in St. Augustine was very nice despite me storming in while complaining about how long it took us to find the place. Got a good value for the money and the car served its purpose to take us to the airport.Cons: First, the pick up location was an address that led to a Walmart. No signs outside about Budget anywhere. No instructions in the confirmation email about walmart either. It took us forever to figure it out. The representative told us Walmart won't let Budget put up a sign outside. Well, at least send instructions to the clients about where to find the location. Second, car smelled bad. It had over 25000 miles on it, so it is older.
8.4 ExcellentJan 17 2018
Budget in walmartPros: Friendly and quickCons: Lack of signage. The Budget rental desk is inside the Walmart, so I was confused when I arrived at the Walmart parking lot and didn’t see a Budget car rental location. I had to call to find out where it was.
5.2 OkayNov 30 2017
Cons: The car seemed to have break pad issues, making us feel unsafe.
2.0 MediocreOct 27 2017
Cons: No one at desk when we arrived. Had to wait half hour at least. Rates much higher than normal !! Car smelled very smoky. Tire pressure was low.
4.0 OkayOct 14 2017
Pros: Check in was fastCons: The attendant was not there when I arrived at 9 am. I had to wait over 30 minutes for him to arrive. The front hub cabs on the car were dammaged
8.0 ExcellentSep 9 2017
Cons: Charged for full tank of gas when I could have refilled. Person at Budget counter said Orlando would have been out of gas which was not true. Therefore my rental cost nearly doubled as charges $31.00 usd for gasoline and tank was still half full.

2.0 MediocreJun 14 2021
Cons: No vehicles were available. I was turned away.
4.0 OkayApr 30 2021
Pros: staff at pick up was okay; polite; did not appear knowledgeable about the car nor have time to provide more than perfunctory direction to the best route to the hwy. staff at drop off was rudeCons: the car was quite comfortable. the dash board lights were very bright resulting in dangerous discomfort and distraction at night. the radio was of very low quality and also shined brightly. I tried, unsuccessfully, to reduce the brightness.
2.0 MediocreSep 28 2020
Pros: Nothing, this was a terrible experience.Cons: When I arrived at hertz, they made me wait over an hour as they didn't have any cars available and someone had to drive it from jacksonville. Then, there was inflexibility when I wanted to change my drop off location. They wouldn't let me even during difficult times like COVID. Then, I received erroneous additional charges on my credit card. Horrible experience. And customer service was incredibly rude.
3.6 MediocreFeb 18 2019
Pros: NOTHINGCons: Since they did not have any cars available, even though I had a reservation, the least they could have done was to check their competition rather than leave me stranded. They did nothing
5.6 OkayFeb 8 2019
Pros: Friendly staff. Office setting cira 1970. Needs a facelift.Cons: Location not open on weekends. Added a $200 deposit to rental. Never had that done before. Is that a new industry practice?
10.0 ExcellentOct 8 2018
Good bang for the buckPros: It was a great value and it was next door to the body shop.Cons: Nothing.
6.8 GoodAug 25 2018
Pros: The car was smooth. No noiseCons: The service at Miami airport was not the best. Waited more than 45 mins to pick up car. I noticed how the employees took their sweet time with clients. Kept calling different employees for help. After an older lady came, forgot her name. She was spanish, then she called and I could not believe how the person in front of me and myself finished so quick. The airport or I should say there were only 3 people on the line at airport. Even though they said it’s the busies airport I think it’s the employees that are not trained properly or just take their sweet time. I had to pick up my daughter from hospital and I was not very happy. Thank you
8.0 ExcellentMay 19 2018
Odd hoursCons: Hours published as if open all day long. Came back to put spouse on, note on door they would be back in fifteen. We were able to find someone quickly, but no one mentioned that the office could be closed when I was told he’d have to come back in. Also, we’ve never had to pay for a spouse driver before, only extradrivers beyond that. Spouse driver was additional $13.50.
7.6 GoodMay 8 2018
RefundPros: Everything except the pricing. Especially the prepay for fuel optionCons: I feel that I should have gotten some of my payment back after bringing the car back 3 days early
10.0 ExcellentMar 20 2018

10.0 ExcellentSep 10 2017
Pros: Customer service was excellent. Representative tried hard to solve a problem and made me feel very satisfied once all was said and done. He told me to contact Kayak to get a refund for the xtra charges.Cons: When making reservation, there was nothing saying there would be an extra charge of $15.00 a day for an additional driver. The rep said there was nothing he could do to waive the fee and since I reserved through Kayak, they would have to be responsible for refunding the fee. Haven't contacted Kayak yet due to preparing for Hurricane Irma which will soon be upon us.
10.0 ExcellentJul 27 2017
Pros: Great service, competitively priced. Easy pick up and drop off for someone's who is always on the go.
10.0 ExcellentApr 11 2017
Pros: Kevin was very accommodating and pleasant. He gave me the upgrade even though I had mistakenly left the BJ's coupon at home. He even came out to the car and went over the general basic operation of the vehicle. The service was very personal and attentive. The car was new and very clean and in excellent condition. I have never had an agent do anything like that before. He made up for the horrible experience I had at DAB two days before, when I had to wait for over an hour to get a smaller car in poor condition.Cons: All was perfect.

Top tips for renting a car in Palm Coast

  • Palm Coast is one of the main Daytona Beach spots located along the scenic A1A River and the River to Sea Preserve. You’ll want to book your Palm Coast car rental to take advantage of all that the area’s golf resorts and nature preserves have to offer. Your car rentals in Palm Coast will allow you to carry all the gear you need to tee off the day at Hammock Dunes Club and Links Golf Course, fish in the Intracoastal Waterway, take a hike in the Palm Coast harbor, and spot rare endangered birds along Florida's Great Birding Trail or plan a beach day of lounging in the sun and snorkeling the ocean’s crystalline waters. Maybe you even want to take a day trip to Orlando to visit the city's many amusement parks, less than 1h 30min away.
  • Daytona Beach Airport is the closest place to fly into Palm Coast. Most rental car companies have their rental counters located directly inside the main terminal of the Daytona Beach Airport. The counters are located on the first level directly across from the baggage claim areas.
  • Palm Coast is served by Interstate 95, which crosses the city from north to south. Alternatively, U.S. Route 1 runs parallel to I-95 through the western side of the city. The city is not well equipped for pedestrians, with efforts to install more streetlights and sidewalks throughout the city. Please drive carefully through residential areas and be mindful of pedestrians who may step out into the road without warning. Pedestrians around the A1A and Flagler Beach for example are quite common. There are also several cycling routes to beware of, around the Marina and Matanzas Inlet, Highbridge areas, and from Hammock to Flagler. Please be mindful of respectfully sharing the road with cyclists around these areas.
  • The I-95 tends to get quite congested during the morning rush hour from 7am to 10am around the Palm Coast Parkway interchange. Within the city limits, the intersection around Old Kings Road gets quite backed up during rush hour as well. Please plan your trip accordingly and seek out alternative routes if possible. Be mindful of these times if you are catching a flight or on a tight schedule.

  • Parking throughout Palm Coast as well as along the beachfront is free, although may fill up quickly in the summer months when the beach access is in high demand.
