It was OK it could have been betterIt was OK it could have been better.Hey just picked up the car had a little problem with it before I went out of town had to fix flat, had a screw inside the tire . I called back to Enterprise they wanted to put me in a van I said I wanted something like the size car that I rented and paid for . They said they didn't have anything and I ask if I could drive to Birmingham , he said that it is Father's Day weekend and then they said they didn't know if they would even have one at that location. It didn't sound like they want to really take care of my problem so I didn't like the manager He seem to have an attitude that I was calling about the rental and I am a company

Horrible serviceNot muchThe car I reserved was not ready. Employee was rude and stopped helping me to eat a biscuit. Had to get manager who was not much help. Upgraded to a Cadillac with broken touch screen dash. Only allowed Spanish language. Bad experience
6.0 GoodAug 17 2016
It was very helpful that we could pick up the car in a non-airport location and drop it off at the airport we were flying out of.We had a reservation but had to wait for the car to be cleaned when we arrived at Enterprise. The cleanliness of the car was fair, but not great.

1.9 HorribleOct 4 2021
We arrived at the car rental location and there was no car. The manager was mean, rude and not customer friendly at all. She said we were late for our reservation and out of luck. (Our plane was late and we were 40 min past the hour hold policy) She claimed she gave it to the reservation that came in on time- but had no answer as to where that customer's car was. She said she had no additional cars and none were available at any other locations. After reading many reviews about this particular location, it's apparent that this happens often as well as the rude and belittling behavior that goes with it. Hertz should rethink who they have as their employees-and at least have customer service that is friendly and kind to the customers!

Ease of walkin and drive out.Would have enjoyed one or two more options to select which vehicle I could have driven out. There was only one choice provided.
2.0 MediocreOct 30 2018
had to cancel and get a refund. when called they did not have a car available. told me it would be 3 hours. I had a meeting to attend that I was unable to make. I rented the car for a specific time and paid for it a week ahead of time. Will never rent from there again. Inexcusable!

Went to get carThe rental price.Credit report refused me to be able to rent car. Since reservation was made on line over the weekend it left me scrambling to get a rental. I would have been willing to pay a double deposit to secure car. On a side note, when you are dealing with an emergency, this is not how you want to be handled.
2.0 MediocreJan 2 2017
I wanted to be charged from my debit card but they charged me from my credit. Why I was forced this

Budget rental is a bad business setting up a rental through you all was a breeze once you get there for the pick everything is totally different I don't see how they are in business very unprofessional

Top tips for renting a car in Tuscaloosa

  • Tuscaloosa is full of great historical sites that can be explored at your leisure with your Tuscaloosa car rental. From the Alabama Museum of Natural History, or the Paul W. Bryant Museum, the Westervelt Warner Museum of American Art, or the Alabama Stage and Screen Hall of Fame. Catch a show at the Bama Theater, a round of golf at the Ol' Colony Golf Complex, or even a game at the Bryant–Denny Stadium, or a night out on the town at the Downtown Tuscaloosa Historic District, like some traditional southern barbeque at the Dreamland Bar-B-Que. Your own set of wheels will give you enough time to pack in all the action, at other historical sites in the surrounding area like the Gorgas House or the Jemison-Van de Graaff Mansion. Be sure to take a tour of the University of Alabama campus while you’re here.
  • Tuscaloosa is served by its own airport, the Tuscaloosa National Airport. The car rental offices are located in the terminal, near the baggage claim. The Birmingham Shuttlesworth Airport is also within an hour away from Tuscaloosa and has a large range of flight options. The Rental Car facility at the Birmingham Shuttlesworth Airport is located in section 1B on the ground level of the parking deck just outside the baggage claim area.
  • Tuscaloosa is served by the following major highways: I-20, I-59, and U.S. Route 82. Beware of pedestrians around the Tuscaloosa Strip and Highway 69 and Interstate 59, as they may step onto the road without warning. Remember that pedestrians always have the right of way in Alabama. There is a popular cycling route along with 5th and Main Street down to the Tuscaloosa River Walk where drivers should beware of sharing the road with cyclists. Be sure that you move one lane away from any emergency vehicle you see stopped on the road and slow down to 15mph as you approach the vehicle.
  • Normally, there is no major rush hour time in Tuscaloosa. Occasionally, in the case of bad weather, there may be an incident on the I-65 or the I-459 on the way to Birmingham that will block up traffic more than normal.
