The car rental counters can be found on the first level of the baggage claim. You will discover Alamo, Enterprise, Budget, Avis, Hertz, Thrifty, and National, among other car rental companies. You can also pre-book a vehicle and pick up the keys when you get to the airport. However, you can find car rental agencies within daphne offering considerably cheaper car rentals. If you are traveling on a budget, we recommend renting a vehicle from an off-site Daphne car rentals facility.

Had two 15 person vans reserved for months. Enterprise called at 7 pm the night before on 1 and at 7 am the day of reservation on the other: “we don’t have any 15 p vans.” No explanation. No help finding 15 p vans at other locations. Even though their website showed availability that day. Pathetic lack of service and consideration. I will not use Enterprise again.

Cons:

We were set out with a bad tire that kept losing air. I aired it up many times. Took it to a Hertz office who sent us to a Firestone dealer for repair. The tire had been repaired but was leaking. We took our rental time to do your maintenance work. Then corporate decided it needed an oil change after we had waited for the approval and repair of the tire . and would no release the car. We were give $50.00 for our time and trouble of doing your maintenance, rely cheap for our loss of use and dangerous condition.

Cons:

I kept getting an error message when I attempted to book a better option, but the compact option worked. The car had a tire out of balance and had stains on the ceiling. I’m just thankful that it had cruise control, though.

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was able to drive

Cons:

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.

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was convenient

Cons:

I was downgraded from a Cevy Tahoe to a Toyota mini-van. Price increased. All this happened at the counter at pick up. The woman at drop off (an employee) said Hertz needed to dump the car off on someone with a one way reservation because of the miles. The van was dirty. Shady business practice to say the least. I could of said no thank you and gone yo a different car rental agency but I was ready to get home after working through the holidays

Cons:

Extra fees upon drop off that increased the price significantly. Also had to turn my first rental in due to immediate mechanical issues. Second straight time using hertz and having a car that couldn’t get me where I needed to go. Severely disappointed

Jul 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

One of the smoothest car rental experiences I've had. I usually rent cars by the Mobile airport, but this Hertz gave me a far better deal this time so I went to the one in the Renaissance hotel. George (I'm pretty sure that's his name) was very courteous and professional. Some car rental employees can be annoyingly pushy or rude, but George was very respectful and answered all of my questions - I knew exactly what I was getting into. The car met all my expectations, and there were no hidden fees or bogus charges.
