Pros: The price
Cons: Waiting for a car that was reserved but not ready. When ready it had some damage that had to be noted in the inspection sheet. Inspection sheet did not get copied well on my copy.

Great for the price.
Pros: Once I had the car it ran fine and the trip was innexpensive.
Cons: It did take me a while to wait in line at the airport and the cars dashboard was not very clean. When I arrived at mdestination the clerk was not very friendly, however I didn't have to talk to her much so that was fine.

Cons: I picked up my reservation early and told the attendant that I would still return it within 24 hours from the time of pick up. She acknowledged she understood and made adjustments to the reservation. When I returned the car they charged me for the additional hours from the original reservation time even though I returned it within 24 hours.

I am in the military and had to meet up with my unit ASAP.

Great experience
Pros: I rented in PNS and the counter was literally steps from baggage claim. The process to rent and return was quick and the car was parked right across the street. The price for an SUV was way less than any others I compared. The gentleman who checked me in upon my return was awesome - very friendly and customer service oriented. He should be commended for his great attitude toward consumers.

No flexibility with drop off locations
Cons: I needed to drop off the car at another airport close by where they have a Dollar office but not a Trifty office and they didn’t let me switch to that location. They said ‘go and try your luck’. Still don’t undeetand why they couldn’t accommodate for this customer need. Never again with this mis company.

Didn't have car for reservation
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: Reserved minivan to drive family around for my husband's funeral. Waited 10-15 minutes in line to be told, "we don't have a car for your reservation, try Enterprise". No apology, no nothing. Will never reserve from Thrifty again.

ACE rental cancelled...no pickup service
Cons: Usually when the rental company states that they are off airport, there is a statement that there is no shuttle to their location if that's the case. Well, this rental company is so far away from the airport that it would have cost me $40 to get there by taxi. No shuttle. And when I called, they said they "could" return me to the airport when I brought the car back. I doubt that would have happened. So, from now on, I will only reserve cars from companies that are co-located at the airport or that explicitly state they have a shuttle. Lesson learned for me. I ended up renting from a company co-located at the airport, by the way. It cost me an extra $30 from my ACE rental but I saved the round trip taxi fare and the time. I had to provide ratings, by the way, in order to have my review published. I never went to ACE.

11 Nov 2019
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Despite having a reservation, had to wait in line at counter for over 45 minutes, as three agents were handling all rentals for Avis, Budget, and Payless, and none of the three seemed to have cars ready. After finally making it out to the garage, had to wait another 30 minutes because the car assigned to me was not ready—over an hour after my scheduled (reserved?) pick up time. Received a hybrid vehicle and did not appreciate the engine cutting off at every stop and the lack of power on the road. On return, only one guy was on duty trying to check in all the cars being returned. This operation is a joke; avoid it at all costs!

Pros: Always have excellent service and quality at Avis on Davis Hwy, I rent often, and am please with the cars, care and responsible customer service. Thank you, Cindy
Cons: I thought the car was uncomfortable. The head-rest at the top of the seat, would love to not have that. At my height, I took a pillow and put it behind my shoulders to keep my head from that. Other than that, great car, good gas mileage. Also would appreciate having more Avis discounts, I go at least 2 days every three months, and twice a year, I rent for a whole week. It would be nice if you could look back at my previous record and see how many years I have used Avis. Being a senior on a fixed income, it would be great to get discounts. Regards, Cindy

Pros: Not applicable.

I had even called Dollar a couple of hours earlier to see if I could pick the car up at 11:45 instead of 1:00 which was stated on my reservation. She said "no problem!" The agent said this happens all the time when the reservation is made through a third party like Kayak.

Also, the driver side windshield wiper very much needed to be replaced. Windshield needed cleaning on the inside.

Not if you're in a rush...
Pros: Location was close to my house. Truck division is outstanding.
Cons: First time user for passenger/light-duty division . Made online reservation. While the large number of "salesmen" were rushing around, I still waited 30+ minutes to finally get off the lot. So much for the convenience of being close to the house. Too much scripted protocol and red tape. IMO, the suit-coat's and bow-tie's are overkill. The best customer service doesn't require shiny shoes or posh attire. It's about well-timed service and understanding the needs of the consumer. I'll stick with less professional, casual, "real" people of the lesser rental brands at the Airport.

Pros: Staff and vehicle were great.
Cons: I thought I was reserving at the Pensacola Airport location but apparently didn't look closely enough because it wasn't. The airport provided me with a vehicle for an additional $200, almost doubling what I was expecting to pay. I'm not sure that was an Enterprise issue though, since I reserved through Kayak.

Rental not at airport
Pros: It was cheaper then renting at the airport. Maybe I missed something but when I got to the counter at the airport. I was at the wrong place. A cab ride and $15 with tip put me at the right Enterprise.
Cons: I was at the wrong place. A cab ride and $15 with tip, put me at the right Enterprise. I was told I could drop it off at the airport I'm waiting to see if a charge shows up for that.

2018 Nissan Sentra

Pick up horror story
Pros: Nothing. Description to follow.
Cons: Ordered car online. Location was on a Pensacola Navy base which required DOD security clearance to enter. Appeared to be regular pick up location online. Called Enterprise to fix. They said they confirmed availability and transferred my reservation & sent me to location 10 miles away who had zero cars available. The wanted to give me 9 passenger “church style van”. Second location wanted to help but they had nothing. They said corporate representative never called to check availability. After waiting a long time another car was returned which they gave me. Hours wasted on our Florida vacation.
2.0 Mediocre

Top tips for renting a car in Pensacola

  • A rental car is the perfect way to explore not only the coastal city of Pensacola, but also the state of Florida and its world-famous attractions, as public transportation between cities is not widely available. Drive to the famous Pensacola Beach, located on Santa Rosa Island, just 10 miles away from Pensacola. For a day filled with adventure, go to the Blackwater River State Park, just 52 miles from the city.
  • All the big car rental agencies, including Alamo and Avis, can be found at Pensacola International Airport (PNS), which is conveniently located almost 4 miles from the city center. Car rental services are situated just across the baggage claim area, which is on the first floor of the airport’s main terminal. If you’re heading to Pensacola during peak season, consider booking your vehicle in advance.
  • While Pensacola is rather easy to navigate, the main attractions are pretty spread out, so be prepared to drive longer distances sometimes. All vehicles should stop at a red light, but a right-hand turn is then allowed if there is no oncoming traffic. The city is home to many college students, so if you’re driving at night be extra careful with reckless drivers or drunken pedestrians. Downtown is particularly crowded on weekends, so stay within speed limits and be alert.
  • The commute times in Pensacola are some of the best in the country, and traffic jams aren’t common. The I-98, which takes you to Pensacola Beach through Pensacola Bay and English Navy Cove, is usually pretty crowded during weekends and the summer. It’s also more packed on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. If you’re planning on heading to the beach, try going as early as possible or wait for the morning crowds to dissipate.
  • Book your rental car in Pensacola at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
