KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Milton

  • By renting cheap car rentals in Milton, you have the freedom to go wherever and whenever you want. You don't have to bother about public transport schedules or being restricted to certain routes. This is especially crucial if you're visiting attractions outside of the city's center, such as Blackwater River State Park, which is over 11 miles away from the city. Additionally, having Milton car rentals will enable your easy access to Gulf Islands National Seashore, Canoe Capital of Florida-Blackwater River, and Adventures Unlimited Wilderness Resort.
  • Pensacola International Airport (PNS) is the closest major airport to Milton, located 20 miles northeast. The rental car offices are located in the baggage claim area of the main terminal. Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) also serves the same area, located approximately 47 miles southwest of Milton. The rental car offices are located in a separate building adjacent to the terminal, accessible via a short walkway. A free shuttle is available to transport passengers to the rental car offices. Mobile Regional Airport (MOB) is located approximately 63 miles northwest of Milton. The rental car offices are located in a separate building across from the terminal, accessible via a shuttle bus. The shuttle is free and operates 24/7.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Milton, there are several things to keep in mind. It's critical to be mindful of pedestrians, especially during peak hours. Consequently, drivers must operate their cars carefully and always be on the lookout for cars, bikers, and walkers. There may be some jaywalking, primarily in downtown areas, but it's not significantly prevalent. Additionally, bicyclists are also a rarity. They usually remain on designated bike paths or lanes, and drivers are watchful when driving near them.
  • Rush hour in Milton is typically between 7:00 am-9:00 am in the morning and 4:00 pm-6:00 pm in the evening. These are the busiest times of day on the roads and highways in the area. The main roads and highways that may be affected during rush hour include US Route 90, US Route 87, and State Road 89. However, during peak travel times, any road in Milton can experience congestion and delays. During the summer months, there can be sudden thunderstorms and heavy rain. This can make driving cheap car rentals in Milton challenging due to reduced visibility, slippery roads, and hydroplaning.
  • Book your car hire in Milton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Milton are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

Everything worked, including an intuitive cruise control, AC, and sound system. We did not have to worry about anything car-related on our trip, which was a huge weight off our shoulders.

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.

The car was fine. Budget was deceptive regarding the Toll Fees. I was asked if I wanted to pre-pay for Toll's and I declined as I was told I would receive something in the mail. They are now trying to charge me $17.00 for "Toll Convenience Fee" when the toll itself was only 3 dollars.

Friendly staff. Vehicle smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Because of this exchanged the Vehicle to different one and the new one also smelled VERY strongly of cigarette as well... also the 2nd vehicle only had a small amount of gas in it when we picked it up.

I waited for over 2 hours for my vehicle at the airport and then waited another 30 minutes in the garage only to find out literally the only vehicle they had was a minivan and not the truck I needed. 3 other people went after me and picked up other vehicles but for some reason they singled me out and literally just ignored me while I waited patiently. The staff were not clear in what the problem was nor was there any sort of management or sense of urgency. I want a refund for wasting my time, giving me a terrible large oversized vehicle for me just one person, for my one vacation I take a year, and doing nothing to treat me as a customer or person. They could have easily given me a small car or suv but said no when asked.. minivan only. They also messed up on the booking and added a day before I even picked it up.

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!

Since I needed a car, it was good. The counter person was dismissive, just did the basics, explaining both (such as do I bring it back filled or not?, THAT was important and expensive), then handed me paperwork with instructions to go to the Dollar kiosk in the garage for my keys and vehicle. No one has entered the Dollar kiosk in that garage in quite a whlie. No employee present anywhere near, I wandered around, found the car, still no help. 15 minutes later a car driver brought a car in and saw me, directed me to the HERTZ kiosk for my keys. She actually got the keys for me. I wish I had her name. The car was not clean, had several minor things that no longer worked, nothing that affected drive ability and I was already hours late. Little, annoying things. And the oil change notice kept coming on at odd times. It was NOT worth that kind of money.

Dollar window was closed so we had to go to Hertz who took their customers first. Car was very stinky and the key fob went dead half way through our trip and we had to stop and replace it as we were afraid the car wouldn't start or we wouldn't be able to lock or unlock it at a stop

My flight changed so I got there earlier. They didn't have the car I'd asked for, so had to pay a lot of upgrades, including an extra day because I was 2 hours early. Check in was very slow because salesman spent time trying to upgrade everyone in line. Other than that they were perfect
