Cons:

Key West airport is crowded and when we arrived the Dollar rental sign was off. There was a small sign to go to Hertz that I didn't see until most of the crowd had moved out. Then, there was only ONE agent working. Clearly, there should have been more agents there. Thankfully, there was no line when there for drop off.

Dollar did note have the car I reserved on lot. They instead gave me a compact SUV and charged me for the full price of the premium convertible I reserved. Since it was booked via Kayak I couldn't get a refund and there were no other options available. Overall, I would not book a car from Dollar again not use a third party website like Kayak.

Pros:

Mack was so helpful! He tried to help my reservation when my flights were rerouted and we got in an hour later than expected. He really went above and beyond to try to accommodate the change in plans.

Cons:

Closing the office prior to the arrival of the last fight is problematic, there were a number of folks stranded without their rental car. This resulted in additional taxi fees from and returning to the airport to pick up the vehicle during the next days business hours. If business hours could be extended, the arrival in Key West and Avis experience would be more enjoyable.

Pros:

Car was nice, except had 3rd row of seats that would not go down to make better access for suitcases.

Cons:

We returned this car early. AVIS would NOT credit us for the unused days, but instead charged for the full amount. This amount came to over $400. When we picked up the car in Key West, we mentioned that we might return it (to Cutler Bay) early. Nothing was said at that time about the full charge or changing our contract. In Cutler Bay, they insisted on charging the full amount. VERY POOR customer service. Will never rent through AVIS again.

The woman checking me out and setting up the rental was hands down the rudest woman I’ve ever dealt with at a rental car facility. There was a tropical storm and people were trying to leave and she made it extremely difficult and spoke extremely rudely to myself and other. Horrendous service.

We had a 10am airport car pickup at Key West International Airport. No cars were available at 9:50am when we arrived. We had to wait until 10:30am for next car coming back to be washed and cleaned. No one asked about Sun Pass. Will have to pay a fortune for each toll we went through without Sun Pass on the car?

Pros:

Nice vehicle.

Cons:

Arrived at the pickup time. They were closed. Came back the next day to get the vehicle, it wasn't ready. After an hour long wait, the vehicle was presented to me. Clearly it was rushed. Did not have a full tank of gas. There was no walk around to inspect the vehicle. I took off with the vehicle. Already late for my meeting. Upon drop off in Miami, I was informed that there was damage to the vehicle on the passenger side rear door. Since it was a black vehicle and on the passenger side, I did not notice it on pickup. So in Miami I was informed that I will be charged for the damage.

Pros:

Reserved a full size sedan in Key West. Only available was a compact. Had no choice and told it was an upgrade. Could not debate as that was the only car available. I took out collision when reserved with Kayak which also covered 2nd driver. I was told that would not give me coverage and second driver had additional charge. I ended up paying twice the amount I locked in on with my reservation. Very disappointed in Enterprise.

Pros:

I first was given a car that I as a female driving 100 plus miles fid not fill safe it. I called and the representative handled it well, however was a very different story when I went to pick up the exchange. they did have a car but refused to exchange it. I told him I wasnt driving the car so to give me options. He said to wait around for an hour and he would have a few. I did, that the whole time not in rep acknowledged I was there or how much time I still had to wait. at about the 1.5 mark he exchanged my key and sent to the parking lot to find the car.

Cons:

customer care is all the brick and mortar store have to set themselves apart as everything is moving quickly to having items shipped. The service given was unacceptable but helped me to realize that in my own store I could do better. Shame on the company that doesn't take a few risk now and again or absorb the cost the service their clients with excellence. one of the employees at enterprise was lying and it isn't my job to figure out if it was the rep at the location or the rep on the phone. I would like to rely on the integrity of the company and its staff. This is the first time this has happened but it only tajes once to put a stain on an otherwise clean reputation. Now should I rent again I will not have the same trust not confidence as I had before. I am hoping that moving forward I’ll be able to find a car from another agency

Pros:

The car was nice

Cons:

We had a reservation for 9AM to drive from Key West to Miami. The car was not ready for us to drive away until noon!! When we checked in, the attendant said the car would be ready in an hour, but really took three hours. By the time we left there were 150 people in line waiting to check in to pick up their rental. Airplanes continued to arrive throughout the period with people expecting to pick up a car and continue their journey. Airport security was having a fit trying to make people maintain social distance when the airport physically did not contain enough space to allow 150 people in line waiting and people arriving claiming their bags on the baggage carousel to maintain distinace. The entire problem was caused by National, Enterprise, Alamo car rental mismanagement and inability to think outside the box. In fact, I watched two employees show up to work then disappear when having to confront unhappy customers looking for an explanation for why they couldn’t get their car.

Top tips for hiring a car in Key West

  • Car rentals in Key West make it easy to visit nearby attractions both within and outside of the city. The scenic Bahia Honda State Park can be found just 35 miles outside of the city limits, along with many other small islands that are fun to explore, and driving is a convenient way to get to all of these. If you want to go on a day trip, you can head to Key Largo, a popular destination that’s about a 2h drive away. Key West car rentals will provide you with a lot of flexibility and independence.
  • To find Key West International Airport’s rental car center, simply head to the baggage claim area in the arrivals terminal. As the center is located inside of the airport, there is no need to take a shuttle to the location. There are several different companies for you to choose from for car rentals in Key West, with Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz being a handful of the options available.
  • Key West is filled with many small streets and cul-de-sacs, so adding a GPS to your rental car can be a convenient choice to help prevent you from getting lost. As it is a beach town that is known for having beautiful weather, there are also quite a few pedestrians and cyclists out and about, particularly in the city center and along the coast, so make sure to keep your eyes open for them when you’re behind the wheel.
  • There is one main street to get in and out of Key West, and it is known as Highway 1. During rush hour, Highway 1 often becomes congested with commuters traveling in and out of the city, so try to avoid driving between 7:30-9:30am and 4-6pm. This road also frequently has a high amount of traffic during the summer months, as this is when visitors come to Key West to soak up some sun and spend time at the beach. If you’re on a schedule or catching a flight, keep these times in mind to avoid delays.
  • Book your rental car in Key West at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Key West are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average
