8.4 ExcellentSep 9 2018
Pros: everything was great except for the line to pick upCons: I waited in line close to an hour & a half to pick up the car :( :( CRAZY!
2.0 MediocreFeb 6 2018
Pros: The car was fine.Cons: 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.

2.0 MediocreOct 17 2018
Canceled without warning....Cons: 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
Pros: The staff member was helpful and friendly.Cons: 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.
10.0 ExcellentOct 9 2018
Easy rental experiencePros: The vehicle choice was wonderful. Premium SUV - had an Infinity. Loved the ride. Will continue booking thru kayak.Cons: 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.
10.0 ExcellentAug 23 2018
Pros: No waiting at check in.
5.2 OkayAug 19 2018
DisappointedPros: The van was spacious and suited my need. When I picked up the vehicle the lady at the desk was very polite.Cons: 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
8.8 ExcellentAug 2 2018
Pros: Everything was great except car wasn't ready when we arrived.Cons: car wasn't ready when we arrived. We had to wait to have it cleaned.
7.2 GoodJul 16 2018
Cons: had to wait more than 30 minutes for a car never had that problem before. Yes I did get a credit when I returned the vehicle which was appreciated but waiting was a real inconvenience
10.0 ExcellentJul 4 2018
Awesome PEOPLEPros: Even 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!!!Cons: Nothing!!! I love the Alamo at Ft Walton Fl airport!!!

10.0 ExcellentApr 24 2017
National made a difficult trip easierPros: Multiple 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.Cons: No complaints about National this trip.

Cons: Slow pick up at VPS.
5.2 OkayOct 5 2016
45 Minutes to drop off a car is unacceptablePros: I honestly was very disappointed with the overall experience at this location.Cons: 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.

Pros: Staff member was friendly, picking up and dropping off was easy.
8.8 ExcellentNov 4 2019
Pros: Yes
3.6 MediocreAug 12 2019
Pros: 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.
9.6 ExcellentMay 6 2018
Pros: They offered me three vehicles to choose from.
7.2 GoodMay 3 2018
Pros: Quick operation, good agent to pick upCons: the 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.
10.0 ExcellentSep 11 2017
Pros: Great price
7.6 GoodJun 3 2017
Cons: When you return your car to VPS airport there is no one outside to get your car. You have to park and walk back in and turn in your keys.

Pros: One staff member was nice the other could have a better attitude.Cons: A little compassion goes a long way.
9.6 ExcellentJan 8 2018
Quick, easy process, economicalPros: I liked there were not excess taxes at this pick-up location. It ran great, plenty of power and great mileage.Cons: 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.
10.0 ExcellentNov 20 2017
Pros: The service provided in Fort Walton Beach was the best service I have ever experienced with renting a car.
8.4 ExcellentNov 17 2017
Pros: Counter rep at the airport was very helpful.Cons: 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.
8.0 ExcellentNov 8 2017

10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2017

2.0 MediocreJun 18 2017
MAJOR RIP OFFCons: My 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.
10.0 ExcellentMay 2 2017
Fort Walton BeachPros: Cheyenne 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.Cons: 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.

4.8 OkayJul 10 2020
Pros: Drop-off was fineCons: I scheduled my location in May and the store had been closed since February. They moved my pick up 2 days prior to my trip and it was a $40 Uber ride to the location to get it.
6.0 GoodJul 7 2020
Pros: Janelle went above and beyond her duties to help me at crestview FloridaCons: The 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.
