2.0 Mediocre22 Sep 2020
Pros: They cancelled my reservation 8 hours before I needed the car which put me in a bind. Then I had to make a reservation with another company and pay double the price. They would not reimburse me or give me any sort of reparation.
8.4 Excellent1 Sep 2020
Pros: Drop off was greatCons: Sat and waited over 20 minutes to get a vehicle during pick up
6.0 Good21 Aug 2020
Cons: Customer service rep you walk the customer to the car or employee to help with the bags and the same teach someone how to work the new technology of the vehicle you get... since is going to be yours for fee hrs or days..... and do together a full inspection of the vehicle....
6.0 Good21 Jul 2020
Pros: The customer service staff were incredibly friendly and nice. Cannot commend them enough.Cons: The car had an overwhelming smokers smell. It was intense. Especially in the heat. It was horrible. Also the car's touch screen (which basically controls everything) didn't work well. It routinely would freeze and we'd have to restart the car to get it to work again.
10.0 Excellent17 Jul 2020
Pros: Staff friendlyCons: they charged me for a damage on their symbol which I didn't do. And on top of it, the level of damage was so minor, OMG.
8.4 Excellent12 Dec 2019
Pros: The pick up and drop off were very easy. The car they gave me was okay, not very comfortable but good gas mileage. My drop off went great, they had an assistant to help park so I could just go to my flight at the airport.Cons: The initial online cost estimate was misleading. My first estimate was ~70$ for one day and another 10$ for the insurance. But because I'm 24 and not 25 I was charged 130$. Which is alot higher than I expected. Being more upfront about the online estimates regarding not meeting whatever arbitrary age requirement you want to use would be appreciated.
9.6 Excellent12 Nov 2019
Pros: Great staff!Cons: All was great!
7.6 Good24 Oct 2019
Cons: Staff at MSY was not friendly at all.
10.0 Excellent1 Oct 2019
Pros: your staff was friendly and made it easy to do business with your company,Cons: This was a one way rental I would have liked to have dropped it off at a location closer to the town I live in instead of at the airport. Other than that I thought that the experience was very good.
9.6 Excellent23 Sep 2019
Pros: The Mobile airport is very user friendly and easy to navigate. I had to change my rental place s multiple times and they were super helpful.Cons: My rental went from $87 for 4 days to $490 for 6 days, due to all my changes, which were related to bad weather in Houston. That’s unacceptable.

Pros: Staff was friendly but somewhat busy for no reasonCons: The vehicle could have been cleaner and not missing a mat
4.0 Okay1 Dec 2020
Cons: When I picked up the car, I was told that the gas tank was full. When I got on the road, I realized that the tank was only 1/4 full. The vehicle also reeked of cigarette smoke to the point that we had to get air fresheners and all had a massive headache. The car was not clean on the outside. Inside was fine. We also had to put air in one of the tires three different times during our trip. This was not a good car rental experience.
10.0 Excellent21 Oct 2020
Pros: It was Pre-booking and things went well when I needed to extend a day longer with Hertz Company.
5.2 Okay10 Sep 2020
Pros: The staff were very unfriendly and did not attempt to help us at all. They acted powerless because it was through a third party. The girl that checked us in had a sour attitude and made the start to our vacation poor. She doesn’t need to be in customer service.Cons: We accidents selected the wrong time to pick up our car and were 2 hours late. No one called us and I think that would be something beneficial so that people could try to get there as quickly as possible.
3.6 Mediocre24 Aug 2020
Pros: The drop off was easyCons: The called smelled of smoke The car wasn’t clean The car had a lot of previous damage to it The car didn’t come with a full tank of gas
2.0 Mediocre17 Aug 2020
Pros: Absolutely nothingCons: This booking site and their actual inventory are totally inaccurate. Booked 4 separate times and vehicle was never available even after speaking with an agent all those times. Ended up using a dealership to rent something. Don’t depend on this service!
2.0 Mediocre17 Aug 2020
Cons: You have to pay rent plus the $200 at the same time that's to much of money at one time.
7.2 Good12 Jun 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly but not able to provide clear answers. Drop off was easy.Cons: Clearer instructions prior to pickup when rental has been paid in full via deal through travel website such as Kayak. No mention of credit card being needed for deposit nor explanation of what the deposit is for.
8.8 Excellent2 May 2019
Pros: The staff at the Airport didn't seem to care one way or the other. The staff at the remote rental location were excellent!
4.0 Okay7 Jul 2018
Charged more than my guaranteed ratePros: The car was able to driveCons: No one was at the office during open hours for 30 to 45 mins. The person didn’t have a key to open the office so we waited even more. I was charged more than I was quoted in an official email with amount I would pay in total and no one seemed to know what to do about it, passing the blame onto the next person we dealt with. It’s still unresolved. I rate check before I buy so I’m not very happy about it. The car had terrible alignment issues.

Cons: They didn’t have a vehicle ready for me to pick up. I had to wait 45 minutes for a car.
2.0 Mediocre8 Feb 2021
Pros: Nothing. They gave away our car. Staff was rude at Mobile Airport and basically just said, "We don't have any cars." No offer to help fix this, despite the fact that they didn't hold our reservation.Cons: 1. They could have held our reservation--we did nothing to deserve them not having a car for us. 2. They could have offered to help find another car someplace else after they gave our reservation away. 3. They could have at least act like they cared that they screwed us.
10.0 Excellent29 Jan 2021
Pros: Yes to both!Cons: The expense, $13.00/day, was a little high to add a second driver. Was not expecting that expense.
2.0 Mediocre5 Jan 2021
Pros: Nothing at allCons: Rude employees. No cars were available at time of pick up. Left me stranded there for 30 hours until I could find a flight back home. Ruined my vacation.
10.0 Excellent26 Nov 2019
Pros: The staff at the counter was awesome! She was very informative and friendly. In my opinion, she went above and beyond to make our trip to watch our son graduate from Army bootcamp a very pleasant experience.
2.0 Mediocre23 Jun 2019
Pros: staff did not know what they were doing, they were not friendlyCons: everything
2.0 Mediocre10 Apr 2019
Cons: When I attempted to pick up my car, I was informed that the rental agency had no cars left. They offered me an apology. Unfortunately, that did very little to fix the fact that I was now stranded with no car.
8.0 Excellent5 Aug 2018
Cons: I had to pay extra at the counter for additional driver

Pros: Due to COVID they aren’t picking anyone upCons: To ACTUALLY let the customer know before heading there and stand in line for an hour or so OUTSIDE to then get denied the rental
8.0 Excellent20 May 2020
Cons: Pickup took 45 minutes to get a car. I realize we are under a pandemic though. There was really only one guy checking people in and checking the cars in, so he was doing the best he could. Dropping the car off was so much easier. They had streamlined their process. It took 5 minutes.

9.6 Excellent4 Nov 2019
Pros: All of the staff that I interacted with were super friendly, helpful, and accommodating.Cons: Drop off was a little bit confusing because there didn’t seem to be a dedicated spot for returns. There were two aisles where you could park the car instead and staff would come meet you where you parked.
8.8 Excellent9 Aug 2019
Pros: The team was kind and quickly went through rental procedure.Cons: It is very hard to find those who are in parking lot for returning vehicle, or any dents or scratches prior to leaving. A large return sign check point and perhaps a single point outside for scratch and dent concerns would be very helpful. Guys in a badly parked truck looked like other customers.

Top tips for hiring a car in Mobile

  • Rich in history, Mobile is a popular destination in the United States’ South. You will find it beneficial to rent a car so that you can visit some of the nearby resort and beach towns like Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Dauphin Island (accessed via ferry). With a rental car you can also enjoy the white sandy beaches of the Florida Panhandle.
  • Mobile Regional Airport offers easy access to many cities around Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. This airport provides travelers with many modern conveniences including free wi-fi, coffee shops, eateries, and car rental services. Several rental car agencies are just steps from the terminal, including Thrifty, National, and Hertz. Some others are right across the street.
  • When driving on the Alabama highways, keep an eye out for construction workers. By law, you must move over to the lane farthest away from the worker(s) for added safety. Rainstorms are also very common in Mobile, which can cause difficult driving situations. If it starts to rain heavily while you are driving on vacation, be sure to turn on your headlights, slow down to keep control of your vehicle, and don’t brake suddenly, as this can cause you to hydroplane.
  • Rush hour in Mobile can add to your travel times. Traffic tends to get busy by around 6 a.m. for the morning commute, although it is the heaviest from 7 a.m. – 8 a.m. approaching downtown. In the evenings commuters typically return home from work between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., which can also cause some traffic delays. You’ll especially want to avoid driving on the George Wallace Tunnel during these times.
  • Book your rental car in Mobile at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • Because it can get hot in Mobile, you’ll want to rent a car with ample room for your family and a strong air conditioning system. If you travel there during the rainy season, you’ll also want to choose a car that is really safe to drive in harsh weather conditions.

  • When you are visiting restaurants or movie theaters on main roads in Mobile, the speed limit should be either 55 or 65 mph. To keep children safe, residential neighborhoods require you to drive no more than 25 mph. On highways, the maximum speed allowed is 60 mph in the city and 70 mph on the outskirts of town.

  • You’ll find plenty of convenient and safe parking spaces for your rental car around Mobile. There are an abundant number of metered parking spots on the streets. Additionally, there are many parking lots and garages around. Some, like the ones on Government Street and the County Garage on Jackson Street, are city-owned and operated.
