6.4 GoodFeb 14 2020

2.0 MediocreJan 1 2020
Cons: Pick-up was scheduled for 3 p.m. on Christmas Eve. We arrived at the downtown Tampa facility at around 3:50 due to a flight delay only to find the office closed, with s note on the door that it would reopen on 12/26. Fortunately, we were staying with family on 12/24 and 12/25 so didn’t need the car. However, when I showed up at 8 a.m. on 12/26 to pick up the car for a trip to Fort Myers, I was told that there were no cars available at any Alamo facility in the Tampa metro area. The manager snd staff made no efforts to help, Fortunately, I was able to find a car at Hertz, albeit at 2.5x the rate I’d reserved at Alamo. Terrible experience.
10.0 ExcellentJul 22 2019
Pros: The price was unmatched. Picking up the car was a quick in and outCons: When we arrived at the pickup location a lot of people were just standing around doing nothing on their phones being lazy.
6.0 GoodMar 15 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful at Tampa location.Cons: There were no midsized cars available so we had to settle for a truck. The vehicle had less than a quarter tank of gas. I returned it with a little under a half tank.
7.6 GoodMar 6 2019
Pros: Marco at the counter that I rented it in Orlando was amazingCons: There was left over trash in car.

2.0 MediocreApr 26 2021
Cons: Was not informed that car rental was full at the airport and I would have to get an Uber to Hillsborough Enterprise
6.0 GoodApr 23 2021
Pros: The staff was difficult at the airport, we had to pickup are car at a different location(On Nebraska) and to get a Uber to that location. Once we got there.....The young lady was very helpful. Was concerned on drop off because we originally was to have a car from the airport but the young lady state we could drop off the car at 3909 hillsborough ave. Which was ok but we still were inconvenienced on a expense of getting a Uber.Cons: Making sure that you have enough vehicles to rent to customers. All three locations next to enterprises did not have cars to rent to customers. Customers were pissed off and being turned away without any assistances.
10.0 ExcellentApr 20 2021
Pros: Smooth and fast transaction.
2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
Cons: Enterprise accepted my reservation for a Sunday return to a location that is not open on Sundays. I walked to the Dropbox to find that “due to security issues” they do not accept drop offs after hours and if you drop the keys, you are liable for anything that happens to the vehicle. My flight out was before they opened on Monday. I spent 90 minutes on the phone trying to find someone who could tell me what to do and ultimately, no one had an answer for me. National chain submitted a ticket with the branch I was using in HOPES that they wouldn’t charge me if I returned the car to the airport the next day. Apparently the national brand has no way of contacting branch managers in instances like this and they also don’t have authority to waive fees on behalf of stores using their name. The entire experience was extremely inconvenient. Luckily I didn’t miss a flight because of it but as a young female renting a car alone, I did NOT appreciate sitting in a car in a bad part of town (bad enough for them to blame no drop offs on security issues) for 90 minutes. It has been 2 days since Sunday and I still have not received a call regarding my experience, though I’ve left multiple messages. I’ve had great experiences with Enterprise in the past but the lack of competence I experienced from the team this past weekend will cause me to take my business elsewhere going forward. I know mistakes happen but a large chain should have a much better internal communication system and plan for things like this. Very disappointing.
2.0 MediocreApr 19 2021
Pros: It was ugly and stressful experience. Everything could and should be better.Cons: Everything
4.0 OkayApr 12 2021
Pros: With some hesitation my issue was resolved.Cons: My rental car smelled of marijuana and after waiting for an hour I asked for a discount instead of waiting even longer for them to get another car in. After leaving and having the car closed up for an hour, the smell was unbearable. I was not comfortable driving my children around in that vehicle. After several phone calls, they were able to replace my vehicle. I was very disappointed that I lost almost a day of my vacation.
2.0 MediocreApr 11 2021
Cons: The branch was not open when we were scheduled to pick up the car. The branch was closed when we returned the car.
10.0 ExcellentApr 7 2021
Pros: Yes, The staff was helpful under difficult circumstances with high rental capacityCons: I had to wait about 1 hour for a car due to spring break.
10.0 ExcellentApr 5 2021
Pros: Staff were great, very fast check out process and check in.Cons: Nothing.
4.0 OkayApr 3 2021
Cons: The car could have been cleaned better. Picked it up Friday afternoon and it smelt so bad of pot that the windows had to be down driving it and had to buy air fresheners an let the car sit for few days before we could drive it. Tried to get it traded out but had no replacements so we were told there was nothing that could be done.

Pros: very quick processCons: very tight facility and office
2.0 MediocreApr 28 2021
Pros: When we got to Tampa to pick up the car the office was closed. I called budget, they told me they close at 2 on Saturday, my pick up time. I asked if they had a car at the airport, they said no. I asked if they were open at the office on Sunday I would pick up the car on Sunday. They said they open at 9 but my car was no longer available , event though I didn't pick it up and they were closed all night. !!!! Called enterprise at the airport they got me a car immediately at the airpot. Will NEVER use you for anything. You don't even know my car wasn't picked up and I even got emails from you telling me my contract was cancelled. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!Cons: Stay open or not accept the pickup time if you're closed DUH !
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2021
Pros: The car functioned to get me from point a to b. That is the only positive.Cons: Horrible customer service. Significant overcharge. Car was dirty even in pandemic - the one tine you’d expect it to be clean and pristine. Suv was awful quality for the price
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2021
Pros: Nothing. The experience (or lack thereof) was a total disaster.Cons: Everything. Not one thing about the experience went according to plan. I had to cancel the reservation. Priceline stinks.
10.0 ExcellentApr 20 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendly and attentiveCons: Usually get a receipt when returning the car, lady says she would email me. Still waiting for receipt 2 days later and called customer care yesterday. They say I have to call again if I don’t get within 48 hours.
10.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Pros: Long line at pick up but moved fastCons: A prompt to join the Fast Break at registration would have saved time
6.0 GoodApr 17 2021

2.0 MediocreApr 12 2021
Cons: Kayak allowed me to book a car at closing. We were delayed and so the car wasn’t available and was rented to someone else the next day. Kayak should at least warn if you are booking a time that is the same as the store closing!

8.0 ExcellentMay 2 2021
Pros: Everyone who worked there was incredibly nice!Cons: I had reserved a minivan, but it wasn't available when I arrived. I was upgraded to a monster vehicle, but when I tried to pull out, I just didn't feel comfortable driving it. Too big for me. So they graciously switched me again to a gorgeous SUV. It was a lovely vehicle to drive, but it made me nervous. I would have been happiest in my original minivan reservation. But all of the employees were so nice and the vehicle was an upgrade so it feels ungrateful to complain.

2.0 MediocreApr 27 2021
Cons: I was denied a rental because I disputed a bill that placed on my credit card a previous time two years ago. So I arrived expecting to pick up a car for $350 and was told I could not rent and had to rent a car for $700.
6.0 GoodApr 25 2021
Pros: Car was beautiful.Cons: The agent at pick up was awful. Tried to upsell so hard. Upsell insurance. Upsell a Florida Sunpass. Upsell to a different vehicle. Really a hard sell - extremely annoying. Car I selected for rental wasn’t available. Also annoying. Check in procedure took far too long.
10.0 ExcellentApr 24 2021
Pros: Super easy drop off and pick up; responsive staff to questionsCons: Car had a few dents in it prior to us picking it up
8.0 ExcellentApr 20 2021
Cons: Had an issue with the sun pass recommendation. Told the clerk where we were going and they stated I did not need the sun pass but the GPS took us the most direct route which was a toll road. Now I have to pay additional fees. Which I should not have to.

4.0 OkayMay 4 2021
Pros: They charged me for an extra day. The guy at check in clearly hated his job, the cars were not in a location that was easily accessed and there was not a car in the space they directed us to. We basically just took a car (with the approval of a manager who happened to be driving by) at random. It was really pretty dirty. They charged us for a toll device when we did not need it. The drop off was also more of a hassle than it needed to be. We have done this kind of thing many times with usually no issues but this was really pretty bad all the way around.Cons: See above.
4.0 OkayMay 3 2021
Cons: Car was gross
4.0 OkayMay 1 2021
Pros: It was at the airportCons: More agents. The line was crazy long. Took way to much time to get car. Only one agent for quite awhile. Then a second one came. After I got the car, there must have been 25 to 30 people in line. Way understaffed
4.0 OkayApr 25 2021
Pros: Drop off attendant was great.Cons: Pick up was terrible. Over an hour wasted. Price gouging... rip off.
4.0 OkayApr 20 2021
Pros: Ease of pick up and drop offCons: The car had cigarette burns on the driver seat and smelled of tobacco I expected a Jetta “or similar” the car was not what I expected
8.0 ExcellentMar 20 2021
Pros: Fast service at pick up and drop offCons: The front speaker was blow and made an annoying sound the entire time we were driving the car. And when we told them there was nothing said other than okay.
4.0 OkayMar 14 2021
Cons: Passenger air bag turned off with my wife in that seat. We drove many miles very scary nervousness. Check engine light came on minutes from returning it.

2.0 MediocreApr 28 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Cleanliness way too expensive
6.0 GoodApr 27 2021
Pros: The vehicle was great, comfortable and clean.Cons: Customer service was horrible. One of the gentleman representatives lied to us and said they were closed when they weren't and we were asked to go down stairs to the garage to be checked out. The representative downstairs was completely overwhelmed and had 8 customers in line. We waited in line for 45 mins to get our car.

8.0 ExcellentApr 21 2021
Pros: Dropping off the car at SRQ was super easy. Picking up the car a t Tampa airport was not a good experience.Cons: When I picked up the car, the agent at the counter at Tampa Airport was not wearing a mask. He just had it around his neck. When I reminded him, he was nasty and said "aren't you tired of wearing a mask?". And he still refused to wear the mask. My wife also approached him and reminded him. He refused and was also nasty in tone and words.
6.0 GoodApr 19 2021
Pros: Pickup staff was great. There was only 1 dropoff staff for 20 people, she told us to just leave the cars and go to the train. I still have not received a final receipt.Cons: I should have received a final receipt to review
2.0 MediocreApr 18 2021
Pros: Nothing.Cons: The car offered did not hold the luggage advertised. I was offered one other vehicle, a minivan, which I did not want, and charged extra for an “upgrade”. Awful to drive, extremely uncomfortable on my back (which is why I rented a luxury car to begin with. Staff wasn’t interested in customer satisfaction.

Pros: Nothing, office closed, reservation canceled and car was given to other customerCons: Communication with the customer about rental office hours especially customers coming from the airport to pickup
2.0 MediocreMay 1 2021
Cons: Searched at Tampa International airport and car was booked 16 miles away.
2.0 MediocreApr 30 2021
Pros: Car was fineCons: Literally Waited 78 minutes in a huge line to pick up a car we had reserved in Tampa ! Rudest manger ever! She has a line all down the hallway but then stopped what she was doing to send two of the people to lunch in the middle of all this! A person complained snd she yelled out to the crowd “they have to go to lunch they are humans too”! She wasn’t even apologizing or anything to all of us PAYING customers just shrugged her shoulders like “to bad for you”! If you have a day where you gave a lot of rentals then why would you only have such a small amount of workers and a manger who clearly couldn’t handle the situation and clearly hates her job. The way she talked to the other workers was horrible! I for sure wouldn’t want to work for someone like that. Being rude to people just because you have the title of a manger is ridiculous.
4.0 OkayApr 29 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly.Cons: The car that was given to us needs attention: very dirty interior, ripped carpet, no windshield wiper fluid, passenger seat belt was very difficult to latch and unlatch (needed assistance from the driver).
2.0 MediocreApr 29 2021
Cons: Rude unhelpful staff. Prepaid then waited an hour to get to the counter & be told that I actually couldn’t rent w/a debit card as previously stated due to “fair” credit.
2.0 MediocreApr 29 2021
Pros: NothingCons: If I would have been notified BEFORE I paid for a rental in full that a 500$ deposit on a major credit card (not debit) would be required at pick up. Was totally stranded with NO rental and Michigan kids for spring break in Florida ...
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2021
Cons: The place was 14 miles from Tampa airport. With no pickup. Really?
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
Cons: When arriving at Hertz at the Tampa airport, and waiting inline only to find my reservation was for another Hertz across town. Hertz moved my reservation to the airport location but I had to pay 3 times the amount. Pay attention to the rental address when you book!

4.0 OkayApr 1 2021
Pros: My Representative was pleasant.Cons: Only reason I ended up at ACE is because they were the only one that had a car for the time period I needed a car. They the reps are super hard sell on all the up charges when just the base rental fee was high to begin with. Not sure I would call a Nissan Versa a mid-sized car, but that was the 'similar' sized car that I had to take. Would be the last choice again.
8.0 ExcellentMar 13 2021
Cons: I feel like the customer service person kept adding on extra and by the time I was done my bill was over $500 and when I booked it was around $250. She tried to add insurance until I caught that. Then told me there were tolls everywhere so then added on for tolls. I didn’t hit one toll booth. I just get money money back for tolls because it’s a scams. You would b able to tell if I hit a toll. I will not use this service only because the customer service was sneaky. I don’t like that and the toll booth is a scam.
6.0 GoodMar 9 2021
Pros: The sales guy tried to charge me more and upgrade my car for more $. The guy i got the car from and dropped it off too was very niceCons: Sales guy could have been less pushy
2.0 MediocreFeb 8 2021
Pros: The price that I got when I first made the reservationCons: If you guys could include in the total booking fee the Ensurance fees as deposits needed on arrival.
2.0 MediocreJan 25 2021
Cons: They could have had a car for me. Used kayak booking site and it does not allow you to adjust the time of rental pickup. Got there at 10a and kayak set our pickup for 12p. I was told they didn’t have a car in the size I ordered. They did have a larger car for 3x the price I agreed to.
2.0 MediocreDec 30 2020
Pros: Nothing I couldn’t get the car. Had to pick one up at a competitor.Cons: Required utility bill to rent and didn’t know until I got there. First time I’ve ever heard of such a thing. Then they limited mileage and said I couldn’t leave the state. Non of which was disclosed until I got there.
4.0 OkayDec 29 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Be more expecific with the type of car you rent it was so bad
2.8 MediocreNov 14 2020
Pros: Checkout guy was nice and easyCons: Provided compact suv instead of midsize. I tried to get other car they offered me to wait another 30-40 min. Called customer service next day and the guy was rude and combative, keep saying dude its midsize per their grade, we are not dealers. even the Wiki and google says its compact. It was mitsubishi outlander SPORT. Our Friends, who we travelled with were at other rental, they were upgraded because they didn’t have the car they reserved. I was not asking for upgrade I was asking for the car I paid for. Not happy. Decided to let it go and enjoy vacation. Do not recommend this particular location. Not sure about ace in general but will avoid them in the future. Never had this issue with other rentals.

2.0 MediocreMay 4 2021
Pros: The price.Cons: Everything else. The customer service was terrible, the people at the desk were rude, the people down stairs at the pickup were rude and the people when I dropped it off were rude. I had a reservation for pickup at 6:00 pm. I got online at 5:50 and there were 19 people ahead of me with one person working the desk. I waited in line for 54 because they couldn’t be bothered to staff the desk properly. When I did get to the front the man at the desk was rude and talked to me like I was an idiot. I WILL NEVER EVER RENT FROM HERE AGAIN AND YOU SHOULDN’T EITHER!
2.0 MediocreMay 2 2021
Cons: Absolutely a loss of money. We arrived at Tampa airport. There was ONE attendant for FOX among 6 other companies. There were approximately 40 people waiting when we got there. The wait time for our car was SIX hours. We abandoned the car and rented at another service. Alot of lost money but spending 6 hours in a line for a car was completely unacceptable. We will never consider them again. Completely third rate!!
4.0 OkayMay 2 2021
Pros: I did not like the way the company is applying hidden costs to the advertised prices.Cons: First, I had to cancel my reservation because I found much cheaper rental car with another vendor. You have to revise your rates, guys. Secondly, when we were returning the car, rented with Budget, we saw terrible lanes of people trying to get a car in the Rental Center at Tampa International Airport. You have to add some more clerks to the rental counters to be able to dissolve this crowd of the angry vacationers with children and luggage during the rush hours.
2.0 MediocreMay 2 2021

2.0 MediocreMay 2 2021
Pros: Waited 3 hours in line and was never given a vehicle as I was told my 3 hour window for reservation had expired. I will never do business with Fox again.Cons: Keep the reservation when you take the reservation
6.0 GoodApr 25 2021
Pros: The car was great.Cons: I felt like there were hidden costs. I needed the car an extra day and they charged me a $30 change fee along with a higher price per day than I originally paid. In the end, one more day cost me about what I paid for 2 days. Also, they had me paranoid about having an accident telling me that I would have to pay the rental fee when the car was being repaired, regardless if it was my fault or not. I noticed on the diagram they gave me there were scratches, and when I asked to review with person at the desk, they just told me to take a video of the car. I really shouldn't have to do this. It caused me to delay getting out of there and extra anxiety about being billed for something I did not do.
8.0 ExcellentApr 25 2021
Pros: The price was excellent and staff friendly. The car was a newer model. Drop off was quick and easy.Cons: We waited over two hours in line to pick up our previously reserved car. That’s too long! The car inside had an odor, a cross between wet sand and slightly smoky.
2.0 MediocreApr 22 2021
Cons: Kayak sells their contract to Priceline and you cannot cancel your reservation. I had to do a claim with American Express. Beware buyers!

8.0 ExcellentApr 26 2021
Pros: Friendly, quick staff. No issues whatsoever.Cons: The vehicle was very basic. This wasn't really a problem based on our needs and we did choose economy, but I can't think of anything else that could have been better- other than maybe price but I realize this is a supply/demand issue.
4.0 OkayJan 19 2021
Pros: Once we actually got to a staff member (after waiting in line for over an hour because the Payless, Avis, and Budget counters were all combined), he was very polite and helpful. The car was new and it was very nice. Drop off was an ease.Cons: A warning at least would have been nice about the lack of staffing or the possible extended wait times. The fact that I set a pick up time and expected to go to the counter to get my car, but waited in line for over an hour instead was frustrating to say the least. I have appreciated an offered substantial upgrade or refund for the inconvenience.
4.8 OkayJan 24 2020
Pros: I like the vehicle.Cons: The truck was not cleaned inside or out from the previous renter. We found water bottles, toothpaste, towels, Etc. It should be noted on my paperwork.
8.4 ExcellentNov 6 2019
Cons: A somewhat different type of car than we booked (got a minivan instead of an SUV) but it did the job well enough.
9.2 ExcellentOct 14 2019
Pros: The staff member in Tampa was terrific. We wanted to rent a Jeep Cherokee, and he went out of his way to ensure we got one. Thanks!Cons: The car was overall very clean, but there was a bit of sand in the back seat of the vehicle. I suppose that's to be expected since it was Florida and beach season. At any rate, it didn't bother us in the slightest and the experience was great.
4.0 OkayMar 31 2019
Cons: There is no customer service department available to call.
2.4 MediocreMar 31 2019
Cons: The address provided for the car rental center was an abandoned lot. I called the 800 number and they didn’t know that either. When I went to the airport location, they said “sorry, that happens all the time. I don’t knuw why they haven’t changed it.” Absolutely unsatisfactory.
2.8 MediocreMar 24 2019
Cons: Car had very high mileage, very dirty at pickup, car safety features did not work.

2.0 MediocreApr 5 2021
Pros: We thought we had a reservation for the evening when we arrived. We received an email that said if we didn’t pick the car up by noon we would lose it. We emailed customer service to see if they could assist us. The responses were short and stated reasons why it was our fault with no effort to help us with a rental.Cons: A reminder email to confirm our reservation and customer service that tried to go above and beyond vs the experience we had.
2.0 MediocreMar 27 2021
Pros: Nothing I was totally ripped off o got there and they said that because I wasn’t there by 12 noon my reservation was cancelled my car rental went from $246 to $611 and I was also told that there were tolls to where I was going I never went through a toll in all 6 days. The place was a SCAM!Cons: Maybe if your going to cancel someone’s reservation give them a phone call and also honor the original price I paid instead of nickel and dimming me.

10.0 ExcellentMar 16 2021
Cons: Great customer service!!!
4.0 OkayFeb 22 2021
Pros: Nothing.Cons: Don't attempt to reserve a car with this company online unless you will be picking it up during "business hours." This is NOT shown anywhere during the reservation process on Kayak, but you'll see it in the confirmation email you get after booking. My flight was arriving later at night when Executive Car Rental was already closed. I called ahead to see if I could make other arrangements to pick it up after hours and they said no. I asked if I could pick it up the next morning when they were open again and they refused, even when I said I would pay for the extra day of reservation when they were closed. I asked if I could modify my reservation to just pick the car up the next morning and they said they were "sold out." Basically, they wanted to rent the car I had already reserved to someone else at a much higher price (I saw the prices increase by $100-200 for the days I had already booked). Lousy company - book earlier with a bigger chain to avoid the hassle and stress.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 6 2021
Pros: The staff was great! I received a call the day of telling me how to find their rental slot once at the airport (which was a little confusing if you've never been there) and so was helpful. They were very pleasant and did everything possible to help us in the transaction.Cons: We purchased our auto insurance through Kayak only to be told a the counter that they did not accept their insurance and had to use theirs. Theirs was more expensive and then we had to call and cancel the insurance we had previously purchased.
8.0 ExcellentJan 1 2021
Pros: The gentleman at the Executive counter was very helpful and patient. He also was willing to listen to my concerns. He also gave us an upgrade. Great price!Cons: We booked the car through Priceline. We received a great deal for a compact car. Our flight got changed to a later time and we were going to pick up the car 2 hours later. The car rental home office told us they could not guarantee the car for two hours later and there might be a possibility we would have to re-book another car at a higher price when we arrived. I was willing to pay for the rental ahead of time and they said it could not be done. Very confusing and annoying.
2.0 MediocreDec 28 2020

2.0 MediocreApr 18 2021
Pros: Nothing, no customer service AT ALL!!!!!!!! It was wrong location pick up instead at the Tampa airport, the airport AVIS rep offer me the same car for the DOUBLE PRICE!!!! When I went to the pick up location, spend $40.00 on Uber, who is going to compensate my inconvenience?, the location was closed. When I called the next day, the service rep told me that car was not available and hang up the phone. Will NEVER use your service in the future and posted the same response on all the social media. Your service is horrible and the worth it could be.Cons: Provide the customer service and about customers.
2.0 MediocreApr 18 2021

10.0 ExcellentApr 18 2021

6.0 GoodApr 17 2021
Pros: Staff was good the wait was very longCons: Price way too high!
2.0 MediocreApr 3 2021
Pros: The location called one hour before the car was to be picked up an canceled the reservation. Left a voicemail. No attempt to find at another location, give a voucher for another trip. I called back a couple times and eventually gave up and decided to enjoy my vacation. Ride shares were scarce and it was extremely inconvenient. First night we didn’t have food. Very stressful experience.Cons: Having a car and fulfilling the order.
6.0 GoodMar 20 2021
Cons: Waited on line too too long
8.0 ExcellentNov 3 2020
Pros: Easy to reserve and pickupCons: There was no damage declaration form and I was concerned because the car had a moderately large sized dent on the front pillar over the driver door when we picked it up. There were no false charges or anything, just made me a little worried.
6.0 GoodJul 17 2020
Pros: The staff was nice, the car was good. The turn in was great.Cons: The pick-up was very slow, the car I reserved was not available, it took an excessive amount of time to place me into a vehicle that would work, but the internal space available and the gas mileage were considerably worse than what I requested. The car was clean, but not fully cleared.

Not a good experiencePros: NoneCons: In the website it is saying that you rent the car and drop it at the airport which is not true.We need to wait for a shuttle 30 min to take us to the place they have the car and there it took almost an hour till we finded a nice clean car.
10.0 ExcellentNov 2 2016
Good price.Pros: The price was the lowest. The car was clean inside. The people were very friendly.Cons: It was awkward getting from the airport to the car rental but they were helpful in the process.
6.0 GoodNov 1 2016
Pros: Lucky to have a vechicleCons: Reserve a Mini Van and they did not save me one so had to take a larger passenger van
9.6 ExcellentNov 1 2016
Cons: All
7.2 GoodSep 19 2016
Pros: Office Staff was friendly. Car was in good condition that I received.Cons: It's a long procedure to get the car. If there had been any kind of line it could've taken hours. Even in drop off. There's no need for a paper receipt if you're emailed it as well. The bus for the airport couldn't be bothered to wait for me to drop the keys. The guys who maintain cars and drive shuttle were not friendly. We seemed to be a bother.
4.8 OkaySep 7 2016
Long wait. Way to far drop off and pick up. ReservPros: Car was ok. But lot of scratched outside. Had to document carefully myself so that don't get charged.Cons: Reservation got cancelled due took showing up little bit later than 2 hours. Long wait to get there car. Way far pick up and drop off location. Leaves adequate times for drop off.
5.2 OkaySep 6 2016
Cons: The checking agent was rude and appeared very unhelpful. we waited for over 20 minutes because no one was at the office at 6 am. There was quite obvious damage to the car door which was not logged previously by the company- if we weren't thorough, we could have missed it in the dark and be liable.
8.4 ExcellentAug 21 2016
Good servicePros: I like that person was helping me is very knowledgeable and helpfulCons: I didn't like your office or you called the waiting room was dirty and messy it gives you a not comfortable feeling about the place.you should look into it because busses is based on the first minute of impression..my name Joseph eddine
6.8 GoodAug 14 2016
Cons: Not enough staff.
4.4 OkayJul 10 2016
Rip OffPros: The price was right going in. But renter beware! The will find a way to gouge you!Cons: I picked the car up at 3am in a poorly lit parking lot. Afterward u noticed some pre-existing damage on the car. After several 20 minute dropped calls u spoke with the manager Sam. He interrupted me as I was explaining the damage on the car. No problem! Just let them know when you return the car! Complete lie! I go to return the car. I explained the situation. The guys first response: Sam is not here! Fill out this accident report! When I told him I was going to write a poor review he just laughed! Eventually Sam came over and said I signed off on the car so therefore I was responsible! I intend to pursue this through the media!

8.0 ExcellentApr 28 2021
Pros: Staff were nice, car was new & cleanCons: Pick-up is a nightmare, the location is 7mins away from the airport their shuttle took 40 minutes to arrive, I tried to call multiple times prior with no answer so we were left just hoping they’d show up. Nearly ended up getting an Uber or public transport just to try and get there quicker. Drop-off was quick but not sure if that’s because we happened to pull up just before shuttle left.
2.0 MediocreApr 26 2021
Cons: Went to pick car up they was closed
2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
Cons: No one stayed late to allow those flight delays to come to pick up their rental. No one answered the phone when we tried to call numerous times. The price was outrageously high.
8.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Pros: The shuttle was good and the drivers very friendly.Cons: I was a few hours late from my reservation time, so it expired. I had to pay a reinstatement fee to pick up the car when I arrived, which is a new thing for me. I would have expected a little more flexibility in the reservation.
6.0 GoodApr 13 2021
Pros: Liked the rogue. good gas mileage.Cons: had to put air in tires twice.
6.0 GoodApr 10 2021
Pros: Car was nice and clean and return was easy.Cons: Our pick up was quite challenging in part because of airport signage, but primarily because Easirent was poorly staffed at the time we arrived - around 8 pm on a Saturday night.
8.0 ExcellentApr 8 2021
Pros: It was a good check in and a quick drop offCons: The cleanness of the car inside
2.0 MediocreApr 7 2021
Pros: Nothing: They left us stranded at airport.Cons: We called before our flight left because we were worried about our late arrival, 9:30 PM. They said the shuttle would be there until 10 PM and they had our name and said there were three others coming in at that time. We arrived at the shuttle area around 9:50. No Shuttle. They would not answer the phone. At 10 PM the phone went right to voice mail. The officer at the sight said at 9:30 they crowed in a group not even promising a car when they arrived at the off-site lot. We had to rent at double the price.
6.0 GoodApr 5 2021
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful, the car was in good condition.Cons: This agency is not at the airport. We had to wait for a shuttle to pick us up. We also had to take a Lyft to the airport on our return because the agency wasn’t open early enough. They also didn’t have our car ready when we arrived so we had to wait about 45 minutes.
2.0 MediocreApr 3 2021
Cons: This is the only car rental place where you need to show proof of insurance. Most people don’t carry insurance cards with them. The car we got had dents all over it. It was older so we didn’t have the apple car play and it had crank type windows. We were going to have to pay an $75 for my wife to be a driver for it. Most companies do not charge extra for a spouse to be a driver. In front of the building there is a raised step that’s not marked. My wife tripped and fell and ended up cut and bruised. The lady waiting on us was argumentative. Oh and the car smelled like marijuana on the inside. We will never use Easirent again.

10.0 ExcellentMar 13 2018
New rental company experiencePros: Picked up at the airport in one of the rental cars instead of a shuttle bus, and got to talk to the driver about the company and procedure while going from the airport to the rental location nearby. I hadn't done an all electronic type of rental before. They made it easy. Once you got the app loaded it was easy enough. Nice clean new Audi A4. Also a drop off at the airport, upon return, in the car that you had rented, so you don't have to move your bags or ride in a bus back to the airport. Very convenient to get dropped right at the curb by your airline departure location. Great experience. Helpful people from end to end. I'd use them again.Cons: Loading the app on my iphone was a bit of a pain. I couldn't get the pages on the app to scroll correctly so I could fill out the forms. I ultimately had to fill in the needed information to sign up via my laptop. Once I got through that it was easy. And with the app loaded I won't have to go through that again.

Pros: The staff was very helpful and the office was clean. They came out and helped me hook up my blue tooth when I asked. Very friendly.Cons: My car was dirty and smelled pretty bad from a smoker. They did give it a quick wash for me, but the smell lasted for my whole trip.
6.0 GoodNov 28 2018
Cons: Car was supposed to be at airport in Tampa. Find out some how my reservation was for Tampa 5 miles away. Had to take a taxi from airport to car rental place 10 mins away. And wanted to charge us 160$ at airport when we booked for 40$. And this car is not in good running condition.

5.2 OkayJun 22 2017
Very easy process, very expensive fee for gasPros: The drop off process was fast.Cons: I felt like I was rushed out of my car and could have left personal belongings behind easily. Also, the gas fee is overly expensive and I was charged $60 for a tank when the current gas prices would have allowed for a $40 fill up.

5.6 OkayMar 15 2017
Mixed experiencePros: Loved the car I was rented. Newer model. Very clean.Cons: Phone number to National did not work so unable to stay in touch when I needed to talk to someone in the office. Car not ready when I arrived (person helping me went and cleaned it himself, so that was helpful), printer not working so no paperwork to take with me. I put in TPA for airport and was given an offsite location. I thought I was renting from airport and went there first. Big disruption to my plans. Ultimately my fault for not paying attention to the address, but also very confusing process that I was clear I wanted airport.

Top tips for renting a car in Tampa

  • For travelers planning on renting a car during their time in Tampa, it is as simple as hopping onto the SkyConnect train after your flight to Tampa International Airport lands. The SkyConnect train can be found in the main terminal building and connects the airport to the Rental Car Center and the Economy Parking Lot.
  • Travelers new to Florida should be extra careful when driving in the rain, especially during the later summer months. Storms can appear out of nowhere and can quickly flood the streets with water, making them dangerous for inexperienced drivers. The flooding will pass quickly, so just be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
  • Rush hour in Tampa lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and picks back up again from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. During rush hour, Hillsborough Ave and many of the I-275 exits can become very backed up so it pays to time your trip accordingly. Much of the historic downtown is made up of smaller streets that can grind to a halt during rush hour as well.
  • One of the major advantages to renting a car in Tampa is the easy access to all of its wonderful nearby beaches and state parks. For instance, Clearwater Beach, Fort De Soto Park, and Caladesi Island State Park are all readily accessed by car, but are extremely laborious to reach via public transportation. Chances are, you will want to take advantage of the wonderful shopping opportunities in the greater Tampa area and a car is necessary for that as well.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Tampa for $31 or less
  • Book your rental car in Tampa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Tampa are around 16% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Tampa are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Fortunately for drivers who prefer large vehicles, Tampa has wide streets that offer ample room for vehicles of all sizes. In general, drivers will have no problem navigating the city whether they are driving an SUV or a coupe. However, drivers should note that in the historic downtown area, large vehicles may struggle with streetside parking.

  • Tampa sees a variety of speed limits from 25 mph all the way up to 70 mph on interstate highways. In the downtown area, drivers will typically see speed limits ranging between 30 - 50 mph, depending on the size of the road. On highways, the speed limit is always 55 mph, unless otherwise posted.

  • Tampa, in comparison to many other cities in the U.S., has moderate to cheap gas. The average cost is around $2.25, which, compared to Seattle’s average gas cost of $3+ per gallon, Boston’s $2.50 and Dallas’ $2, puts it right in the lower range of gas prices in the U.S.

  • In general, streetside parking is not too difficult to find throughout Tampa, especially in the less crowded outer areas. However, in the historic downtown area, streetside parking can become scarce and difficult to find. Parking garages are a great option for drivers heading downtown, though, as they are amply available and fairly cheap.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
