The car was fine.The lady from Avis tried to upgrade me at a lot more cost. I kept saying I wasn’t interested. The most disturbing was how she kept implying that I could break down on the side of the road with no help if I didn’t buy insurance or roadside assistance. I was traveling alone and she purposely tried to frighten me. I felt paranoid that something terrible would happen my entire trip. It affected my vacation.

Canceled without warning....Flew in and found out our car was unavailable. Had a parking lot full, but they were saving them for FEMA..which is fine, a disaster had just taken place. But to have no warning before being stranded at the airport is sad.
8.0 ExcellentOct 15 2018
The staff member was helpful and friendly.Waited in line for an hour due to having only one agent on duty. The vehicle was parked a long way from the rental desk, making it difficult for older folks to walk to get to.

Easy rental experienceThe vehicle choice was wonderful. Premium SUV - had an Infinity. Loved the ride. Will continue booking thru kayak.Every state has different rulings - additional driver in state of Florida was $15 per day. Would have been nice to know ahead of pick up. Oh well.

DisappointedThe van was spacious and suited my need. When I picked up the vehicle the lady at the desk was very polite.When I picked up the vehicle nobody went with me to inspect the vehicle or to do a walk around to insure there were no issues. When I picked up the van it had NOT been cleaned inside. It appeared that it had NOT been checked to any specific standard other than it had a full tank of gas. All 4 tires were low and not a single one of them had the same pressure. I had to add 4,5,6 and 7 pounds of air respectively. I would have assumed that safety would have been a priority. I know well enough to check those things for myself, but what about people who don't? Very very disappointing

Awesome PEOPLEEven though the counter closes at 11pm, Jacob was there at 1215am! Waiting. I had called the day before and Kirby assured me someone would be there until the last flight came in and I was on that flight. And he was there. And I got an AMAZING vehicle for an AMAZING kayak reference and I doubt I’ll ever use another rental company if it isn’t Alamo!!! Wow!!! New customer... FOR SURE. Even loved the guy who checked car back in. He sits in van in parking lot waiting on customers. In Florida. About 90 plus degrees. I was beyond impressed. Blown away is more accurate. Thank you ALL!!!Nothing!!! I love the Alamo at Ft Walton Fl airport!!!

We reserved from an off airport site to get a better rate. Took a taxi from the airport to the Enterprise location and they were closed due to covid. We couldn’t reach anyone by phone so went on to our hotel. Finally reached someone later in the day and they said they didn’t have my phone number or they would have contacted me. Funny I provided phone and email when I made the res. They said we could pick up our car at the airport location. Had to take taxi back to the airport. There and back cost $80.

2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
drop off was easy, the rest of the experience was not good!!!make it more known that you are going to be closed at noon on a SATURDAY and not open on SUNDAY Some people can only travel on those days, honor the price agreed on, at a different location if not going to be open an the other location, and quit gouging people on the price, (prices were outrageous)

Janelle went above and beyond her duties to help me at crestview FloridaThe location from the destin airport didn’t have a vehicle. Enterprise sent us to valspario which is a closed location which then led us to crestview. And that cost us $45 cab ride from the airport. When returning the van, it took most of the day to get the receipt after many phone calls and on hold and being dropped by the people at the airport. We finally got ahold of Janelle at Crestview, she got my receipt promptly and courteous. Thanks Janelle.

National made a difficult trip easierMultiple flight delays & cancellations conspired to ruin my family's Spring Break vacation. After six hours of delays, our flight from Atlanta to Destin-Ft Walton was cancelled. Our National agent in Destin airport was extremely flexible and courteous which was a relief in all our bad travel experiences with Delta. We ended up renting a car from National in Atlanta and driving the five plus hours to Seaside, FL. One day later but, still had a good time.No complaints about National this trip.

The staff was super condescending and put me in an economy car despite the fact I paid for a mid size. I brought the car back @ 6 versus 4 and was charged an additional $38 when the daily rental was only $27 which seemed extremely inflated.

Quick operation, good agent to pick upthe car didn't have bluetooth. It was weird to grab the car and not have to check it out with another gate agent to leave the premises. If I had something wrong with the car, I didn't have an immediate person to detail that with. I would have had to go back into the terminal or hunt someone down. Nevertheless, it's comforting to not have to wait to get my car and go. So it's just habit that makes it weird.

We had to wait in line for 3 hours to get our reserved rental car only to get more awful service and moved to a Tahoe which didn’t fit our family and luggage. Was then told we would get a discount which didn’t happen. Now I get to waste more time on the phone with Avis trying to get this figured out. If you are renting from the Destin/Fort Walton airport location….BEWARE!!
1.9 HorribleAug 3 2021
The car wasn’t ready. We had to wait an hour for them to clean it and when we got to the car, it wasn’t even clean—there was sand all over the floor still. Customer service was poor too. No one to greet us at drop off to make sure the rental was good or anything. As a preferred customer, we were not pleased with our experience.
4.0 OkayMay 1 2021
We asked specifically for a car that seated 8 and we got a car that seated 7. There were no cars that seated 8 so someone had to ride illegally and unsafe the entire trip.The lady that helped at Pickup was not helpful on instructing drop off after hours. The car stunk. And giving people the amount of seating they request is pretty vital.

45 Minutes to drop off a car is unacceptableI honestly was very disappointed with the overall experience at this location.It took 3 employees combined effort in order to serve one person ahead of me in line for at least 25 minutes. When it finally was my time to be helped, I was asked to go into the parking lot to obtain the mileage on the vehicle while the lady stood there doing nothing. When I got back she answered a phone call and didn't even put the person on hold, I continued to wait. When she got off the phone she realized she was not capable of figuring out how to do a return. She proceeded to go for help. In the meantime one of the other employees then tried to help another person that was in line behind me while my employee went in search for help! I informed her her co-worker needed some help in processing my return and I simply cannot wait any longer, I did not account 45 minutes to drop off a vehicle. A capable employee then showed up and processed my return within 2 min. Seeing how easily the process should be handled made me sick to my stomach. I wouldn't recommend this location to anybody.

Quick, easy process, economicalI liked there were not excess taxes at this pick-up location. It ran great, plenty of power and great mileage.I chose an economy car and got blown around on the road with high winds. Trade off for small economy car. Also needed oil and fluids when I checked it out after pick up, that I added. Car was clean but needed its fluids checked before renting.

Counter rep at the airport was very helpful.Confusing at to where to pick up the car. Online, I thought we’d be picking up the car at the airport. (Why wouldn’t you want to?). I had booked it from a ‘downtown ‘ pickup, ultimately costing more money! Really? Needs to be more clear.

MAJOR RIP OFFMy flight was delayed by 2 hrs; I went to pick up the car and the facility was closed- it was around 2pm on Saturday afternoon. I had a very difficult time trying to resolve the issue. The reservation should have listed the hours of service particularly as this area is a resort area. Later (4:25 pm on 6/10/17) I was able to speak with someone named 'Gan' who said the reservation was cancelled. Returned from vacation yesterday to find that I was charged for the reservation.

Fort Walton BeachCheyenne was very friendly and helpful at pickup and dropoff. The car was clean. Rental was good value for time frame and cheaper than renting from the airport. Even with having to take taxi or uber to/from the airport, cheaper option than renting at the airport.The brakes in this car. When you went to apply the brakes, it was not smooth as in other vehicles, and took couple times to get used to Have Hyundai Sonata, so I did not expect this vehicle which was a different model Hyundai to have such a different pressure when applying the brakes. Did not have back up camera which would have been useful since used to that. Did not realize the rental was not at the airport. Had to take taxi from rental back to airport, since received errors for UBER. Took Uber from airport to rental location.
