Car was dirty at pickup. On drop off, attendant didn’t check us in or give us a receipt. Just yelled to leave the keys and we’ll get an email. Still haven’t gotten an email.

Cars in tallahassee location usually in decent condition.Pickup / drop-off awful. If theres rain, Avis/Budget requires customers to walk in the rain to terminal to return cars rather than have staff in return lot. Lines in parking lot trying to find a parkingspot(again need staff) and lines in terminal for returns. Enterprise/Alamo/Hertz had on-site staf

Destin drop off is weird.All that is needed is more direcrive signage telling renters to park in any spot, lock the car and bring the keys into the terminal..

Big mistake made good elsewhere.They said they would refund the cab ride from and to the airport with proper receipts, and they did.My plane was late and I am not from where I needed the car. I was told the system was down for maintenance (at 11 pm?) and they would not be able to give me a car - they did not expect the system to come back up for 3 hours. In other words, I had to find my own way to my hotel and back again the next day to pick up the car once the system was up. No company runs maintenance at that hour! The guy behind the desk was, in my opinion, a bit too glib about the situation and offered no help. I was quite disturbed by his attitude! It was not easy to find a cab at that hour.

Not a great experienceI had to wait in line for 40 minutes to get the car and ended up not getting the type of car I paid for. I mentioned this to the agent and she basically told me there was nothing she could do. Upon return, it was not clear at all where to return.
5.6 OkayApr 10 2017
DirtyThe car was dependable and got good mileage, and for the most part was comfortable.The car was really dirty, smelled like smoke, the windshield inside and out looked like it had never been cleaned. The inside of the windshield was smeared. The car smelled like cigarette smoke, then my wife found a cigarette on the back seat.

Sat there for over an hour and he did not have a car available so that the detail guys did not show up and he was running way behind along with about 15 other reservations. Very poor service.

Horrible experienceNothing at all not the car style I selected!I didn't like the fact the vehicle selected was a special which said any normal size car which had a full size car for the image. Also I didn't knw anything about a $250 deposit! I'm over the age of 25. (29) The gave me a sorry ford focus which not anything close to a normal size car. No room in the back seat looks like a small mini van. So they gave me a compact car.....

Nothing.When we arrived, on time, at 7:00 pm there was no one in the Thrifty booth. A sign referred us to the Avis booth. The Avis clerk told us that Thrifty had given our car to someone else. It would take a while to get another one. One and 45 minutes later we cancelled the reservation by phone and rented from Budget. They had us on the road within 20 minutes. The service person at Budget was personable and very helpful. We got the Budget rental for $200.00 less than the Thrifty rental. Perhaps they need to change their name. They definitely need to learn what the word "service" means. I'll NEVER go to Thrifty again.

Great DealI reserved a car and when I got there they informed me that they were all out of cars. I started getting upset cause it took me an hour to get there and the guy asked if I would be ok with a mini van. I said ok and figured I was gonna end up paying 3 times more. They apologized for the inconvience and discounted the entire thing so I paid the same price for the car. They had really great customer service.I'm not usually a minivan guy (It was really nice though).

The people that I dealt with were all very professional and very nice. This rental was easy and a great experience.When I picked up the car, it didn't have a full tank of gas. The needle was clearly below the full mark. I was headed to Costco in preparation for my drive on the next day and the tank took over five dollars of gas. Gas that day was $1.70/gallon. That is not a full tank in anyone's book. Otherwise everything else was great.
6.4 GoodNov 15 2019
Car was very clean and in great shape.The first car I was given was an SUV that I was not expecting as I preferred a sedan. In addition, this car had flat tire that forced me to return to the rental station after leaving to exchange. I was not happy having to walk back and forth from the lot with my belongings twice in rain.

Ease of return. Close to terminal.Confusion on fuel charge. It was, however, resolved in fairly short order. I guess it was a difference in how the localities (JAX and TLH) do the pre-paid fuel charge.

I was led to believe the rental place was actually at the Tallahassee airport. It is not. You must call them to come and pick you up. They were fairly efficient, but if you have an early flight and they are not open , you must find your own way back to the airport. Or, if you arrive late, not sure how that would work either. The office space and parking lot is a huge mess. The staff was friendly and polite, but the environment kind of gave me an uneasy feeling.

Charged me for insurance I said I didn't want. Did not email me my invoice/receipt like they said they would. Had a surprise $300 in charges upon arriving to pick up my car after already paying $500. $800 for less than a week rental? A bit much.

The low tire pressure warning came after driving about 15 minutes from the pick up location but didn't have time to go back so just drove 300 miles with low tire pressure
3.9 MediocreJul 27 2021
I paid a premium for the rental because I thought that Hertz was number 1. The "Gold Seal Cleaning" sticker over the drivers door is a gimmick and means nothing. The car was an SUV (Rogue). The storage area in the rear (where my wife generally likes to lay out her clothes) was absolutely filthy and full of dog hair which made it unusable. We rented a passenger car, not a work truck.
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2021
They Don't answer the phone in Tallahassee. Our flight was delayed, we called repeatedly to let then know. They ended up giving our car to someone else. Hope we get our money back. We had to make other arrangements to get to our destination.

Top tips for renting a car at Tallahassee Airport

  • Imagine having the freedom to attend exciting events and visit all attractions in Tallahassee at your convenience. Such an experience doesn't come with shuttle services or taxis, but by renting a car that meets your unique needs and preferences. A car rental at Tallahassee Airport provides an easy transition from flying to ground transportation without reaching the city center. You also wouldn't want to worry about not accessing all the attractions in Tallahassee.
  • Saving money on airport car rentals can be challenging but not impossible. Onsite vehicle rental fees are often steep because of the prime location an airport provides. That said, your car rental at Tallahassee Airport will usually charge a "Concession Recovery Fee" to recoup the expenses they incur, such as the office lease and taxes. That's why you'll notice the high level of strictness from onsite car rental operators. If you'd like to save money on your next Tallahassee Airport car rental, consider buying your chosen operator's auto insurance. That way, your liability over the vehicle dwindles to zero.
  • Is the fun over, and you need to return your rental to catch your flight? You can do that easily as the airport has conspicuous signs to lead you to the designated return area. When you enter the airport grounds, you'll see the "Baggage Claims" or "Arrival" signs. Follow them to the baggage claims entrance, and you'll see the parking lot across the road, where you need to park the vehicle. Afterward, proceed to your car rental at Tallahassee Airport and settle the costs, then you're free to board your plane.
  • In Tallahassee, the rush hour starts from around 7.05 am to 8.40 am. However, you can expect some sections within the downtown area, such as Monroe St, to have slow-moving, bumper-to-bumper traffic between 11.30 am and 1.30 pm. The evening rush begins from about 4.30 pm to 7 pm and affects all major roads around the airport like Capital Cir SW. If you'd like to move around the city quickly, drive from midmorning through the afternoon or past 10 pm on weeknights and weekends.
