Customer service at desk in PNS airport was kind enough to offer me a free upgrade. When we opened the car door, it smelt like a Vegas casino in 1970! It was obviously a smokers car, so we asked for another car (same size as originally booked), and it was brought to us within 10 minutes, with profuse apologies. Pricing was high, but the connivence of on airport pick up, and overall friendliness of reps was v nice. Would rent from Budget in PNS again.

Pros:

The pensacola budget staff went out of their way to help us

Cons:

They let me book a pick up time for when the store closed and we missed the pick up window entirely. Zero help to fix it except from the penscaola airport budget rental counter.

Pros:

Car itself was great, clean, new, and the vehicle we reserved was the one we received.

Cons:

Pickup was extremely slow. It was understaffed both at the desk and in the lot. It took over an hour to complete and that was with our reservation already done days before online. We paid an exorbitant price for the car. Same car was cheaper at other airports.

Pros:

The clerk at the desk was unfriendly and acted annoyed with us until he finally finished and sent us on our way. We got to airport and saw the Budget sign. Before we could get to the space, he slapped the counter 4 or 5 times and said “here!” We kind of laughed, embarrassed. He said, “didn’t you read the sign? It’s for Avis AND Budget. Actually, no we didn’t have the chance. I had forgotten my reading glasses and so my daughter (30 years old) was getting ready to check the boxes for me on the screen. We were scolded, again, with him telling me that had to check the boxes myself. I did, and it was a touch screen, but I was scolded for not using the stylus. As My daughter was skimming and reading the contract for me, he told me I didn’t have to read the contract because he would tell me what was in it. That’s not good enough. I wanted to decide for myself if I had questions about the contract. The car was clean and nice. The woman who gave me the keys when I went to get my car was nice. The person I returned the car to was courteous.

Cons:

The clerk, as stated above, needs a course in courtesy.

The vehicle and hertz staff were all good. The location to pick up was terrible. There was no way to get there from the airport without a taxi service which costs an additional 50 dollars. The hertz vehicle rental in the airport was totally unwilling to assist and basically said tough luck, get a cab! I will never go this route again and go through a different service altogether to find my rentals. This was not explained well enough if at all that I can recall.

I somehow accidentally selected an off- airport location and neither the desk at the airport, nor the off premise site were any help in trying to correct the situation. Because I had prepaid, all they did was apologize and send me on my way. The airport was 4 miles away, and they told me it would be an extra $150 if I wanted to drop it off there instead. This resulted in a lot of trouble with an early morning departure and a lot of extra money with 2 extra taxi rides. HORRIBLE customer service. If I select a company because they have a reputable name, I expect more than that.

My flight changed so I got there earlier. They didn't have the car I'd asked for, so had to pay a lot of upgrades, including an extra day because I was 2 hours early. Check in was very slow because salesman spent time trying to upgrade everyone in line. Other than that they were perfect

Pros:

The staff were awesome and the car was great, very helpful with a car seat and also with drop off.

Cons:

The only hindrance was that the actual rental building was away from the airport, so we had to Uber to and from the airport.

They had no cars. They rented a package delivery van to a family. I was turned away with no solution offered. I had made my reservation more than 2 weeks out. Had to cancel and pay a premium at the airport through a different rental agency.

The sales people during pickup and drop off were all great. One person truly stood out and that was Dennis. If my work was in Florida I would hire him today. An upbeat, positive and genuinely charismatic young man who believes in treating his customers like family. I would go back to Enterprise just for his service skills alone. Overall excellent experience with Enterprise this time.

Pros:

Comfortable car. Service at pickup was good, they were very busy and the cars weren’t clean at the time of pickup.

Cons:

The first car we got was obviously recently smoked in and we requested a change in car. We got a less valuable car than the original (smoked in car). The car was previously smoked in but had been covered up and was not as strong as the first. That was very disappointing. Ever had a bad experience with an enterprise car until this rental.

Pros:

Cons:

Despite having a reservation, had to wait in line at counter for over 45 minutes, as three agents were handling all rentals for Avis, Budget, and Payless, and none of the three seemed to have cars ready. After finally making it out to the garage, had to wait another 30 minutes because the car assigned to me was not ready—over an hour after my scheduled (reserved?) pick up time. Received a hybrid vehicle and did not appreciate the engine cutting off at every stop and the lack of power on the road. On return, only one guy was on duty trying to check in all the cars being returned. This operation is a joke; avoid it at all costs!

Pros:

The fully loaded Pacifica I started with was terrific, except it had a bad rear tire that kept deflating. I called roadside assistance and they very kindly directed me to an Enterprise only 5 miles away to exchange vehicles with minimal hassle.

Cons:

I wish Alamo could have just replaced the tire, because the van I got in exchange from Enterprise was an ancient, dirty Grand Caravan with absolutely no modern features such as a backup camera, Bluetooth, or even USB. Not Alamo's fault but man that was a buzzkill for the rest of the week. Also, the line at the airport was just ridiculous.

Booked a SUV about a month in advance got to Pensacola and no SUV they first tried to put me in a mini van or a car (I said no way I already had prepaid $700) then they went to all the other rentals to find a SUV finally they decided to go clean up a return we waited for 45-60 minutes for this all to take place then they had the nerve to charge me $80 for a car seat rental by that time I was not to happy with the whole situation our kids were hungry and unhappy we was needing to get on the road. Also I don't believe that the unit was ever cleaned up from factory delivery it only had 349 miles on when we rented it but there was still film and residue on the inside of the windshield.

Cons:

Usually when the rental company states that they are off airport, there is a statement that there is no shuttle to their location if that's the case. Well, this rental company is so far away from the airport that it would have cost me $40 to get there by taxi. No shuttle. And when I called, they said they "could" return me to the airport when I brought the car back. I doubt that would have happened. So, from now on, I will only reserve cars from companies that are co-located at the airport or that explicitly state they have a shuttle. Lesson learned for me. I ended up renting from a company co-located at the airport, by the way. It cost me an extra $30 from my ACE rental but I saved the round trip taxi fare and the time. I had to provide ratings, by the way, in order to have my review published. I never went to ACE.

So, from now on, I will only reserve cars from companies that are co-located at the airport or that explicitly state they have a shuttle. Lesson learned for me. I ended up renting from a company co-located at the airport, by the way. It cost me an extra $30 from my ACE rental but I saved the round trip taxi fare and the time. I had to provide ratings, by the way, in order to have my review published. I never went to ACE.

Top tips for renting a car in Pensacola

  • A rental car is the perfect way to explore not only the coastal city of Pensacola, but also the state of Florida and its world-famous attractions, as public transportation between cities is not widely available. Drive to the famous Pensacola Beach, located on Santa Rosa Island, just 10 miles away from Pensacola. For a day filled with adventure, go to the Blackwater River State Park, just 52 miles from the city.
  • All the big car rental agencies, including Alamo and Avis, can be found at Pensacola International Airport (PNS), which is conveniently located almost 4 miles from the city center. Car rental services are situated just across the baggage claim area, which is on the first floor of the airport’s main terminal. If you’re heading to Pensacola during peak season, consider booking your vehicle in advance.
  • While Pensacola is rather easy to navigate, the main attractions are pretty spread out, so be prepared to drive longer distances sometimes. All vehicles should stop at a red light, but a right-hand turn is then allowed if there is no oncoming traffic. The city is home to many college students, so if you’re driving at night be extra careful with reckless drivers or drunken pedestrians. Downtown is particularly crowded on weekends, so stay within speed limits and be alert.
  • The commute times in Pensacola are some of the best in the country, and traffic jams aren’t common. The I-98, which takes you to Pensacola Beach through Pensacola Bay and English Navy Cove, is usually pretty crowded during weekends and the summer. It’s also more packed on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. If you’re planning on heading to the beach, try going as early as possible or wait for the morning crowds to dissipate.
