Make sure the car you reserve is at the airport
Pros: We did get the car we reserved the next day and they did allow us to drop it off at the airport and waived the $75 fee
Cons: Cost $55 to get to the correct Avis. We reserved a convertible And it wasn't available yet.

Pros: Everything--except somehow I booked a car at an in-town location rather than airport. How did that happen?
Cons: I'll probably use Vroom Vroom next time. They have a very clear cancellation policy. Avis/kayak--you couldn't find their cancellation policy with a forensics expert. Ergo I assume it sucks. Thank you for reading. Take the rest of the day off.

Pros: Location was very close to out hotel and rep was very kind and courteous.
Cons: Small snafu with reservation and many calls later to resolve. It seemed that everyone would tell us a new number to call and no one really knew what to do. Also, the after hours drop off process was very vague. There was not signs indicating what was specific for AFTER HOURS - so I wasn't sure if what I was doing was the correct process and had to walk from the parking garage to inside the airport at the desk to drop my key. Which was not a huge deal but I was confused whether or not I was following correct procedures. Key drop should be at the kiosk in the parking lot.

Cons: Only negative was Hertz employee in Panama City. I considered him rude and unfriendly. He offered no help, explaining fuel options or anything else. At the end, he just handed me a key and said to take the one at the far end.

Cons: They did not have the type of car I requested, resulting in either a long wait at the airport, or going for an upgrade to a type of car ghey did have available. I got the upgrade for an additional $9 per day.

17 Sep 2017
Pros: The car was a nice ride, comfortable and economical.
Cons: The car advertized that it held 5 LARGE pieces of luggage. Well, that was a misnomer, as it was a tight squeeze with 3. Large was subjective.

Cons: Maintained that my reservation had been cancelled, failed to make any effort to provide me with any alternatives for a rental. Consequently I had to rent from another agency at a much highest fee. Attendants unprofessional and unresponsive at this Panama City, Florida location.

Cons: I received a notice that my vehicle was reserved, but after driving to the airport to get it, they had none. No one ever got back to me to say they had no vehicle to prevent me from wasting my time driving to the airport and back.

Cons: I reserved the special which was suppose to be a 5 seater. They gave us a Chevy Spark which is only a 4 seater with room to store 2 pieces of luggage. Obviously we all had luggage. So ended up having to upgrade, when I could have reserved a 5 seater for less. Also, the low air pressure light was on.

Cons: Will never rent from them again. Reserved a car online, pickup on July 4th. Site closed early. Customer service could not find my reservation and was less than helpful. I could barely understand him and he kept insisting that my rental was for a different city on a different date. Use Enterprise !!

PCB Enterprise is Awesome!
Pros: "Christina" was very kind and professional, always happy to answer questions. All the staff was friendly and great! Location easy to find and pick-up service was helpful.
Cons: Car could have been cleaner, especially the windshield, carpet and console. when you pay for a rental it should be clean! Also the gas tank was only 1/4 full which makes it inconvenient when you are doing a road trip to have to stop for full right away.
