  • You need to get cheap car rentals Palm Bay whenever you’re traveling to the area. A rental car provides the best way to get around the city and check out different attractions in Palm Bay. With your rental, you can visit places such as Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, the Maritime Hammock Sanctuary, and the Melbourne Beach Pier all in one day. Additionally, you can check out neighboring cities such as Orlando, which is roughly 70 miles away, and see all the popular sites including Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, and Magic Kingdom Park.
  • You can get your cheap Palm Bay car rentals from Melbourne Orlando International Airport which is the main airport serving the Palm Bay and Melbourne area. The airport has about four rental companies providing services including Hertz, Thrifty, and Budget. The rental shops are located a few minutes away from the terminal and you can choose to walk to the rental center or take the shuttle provided by the rental companies. To make the process of picking up your rental car slightly easier, you can make a reservation online via KAYAK so that when you arrive at the airport it is just a matter of paying and driving away.
  • When driving your car rental in Palm Bay, you should be cautious of pedestrians and cyclists. The town is fairly walkable which leads to high pedestrian and bicycle traffic which can be quite chaotic at times. To avoid getting involved in any incidents, always leave space on the road for cyclists and use your indicator lights when making a turn. You should also double-check crosswalks at intersections before going through even when the lights say that it is safe to do so.
  • Driving in Palm Bay can be quite tricky especially because of the narrow streets and intersections after every few minutes. Navigating these streets can be slightly difficult so you need to get a GPS installed on your car rental in Palm Bay so that you can get to your destinations much easier. Traffic is also a huge factor especially downtown during rush hours. The best way to beat this is to leave early and avoid the hours between 8 am and 10 am as well as between 5 pm and 7 pm.

Pros:

The car was not ready in Melbourne. I called an hour before I arrived to make sure the car was ready, so our friends did not have to wait for us. Once we got to the car lot we wait an hour for the car to be cleaned. We were on VACATION not watching a car get cleaned lesson.

Pros:

The drop of was fast.

Cons:

Waited additional time for SUV to be cleaned, then more time because the keys were locked in the vehicle after they finished cleaning it. It wasn't that clean and was infested with ants. I had 5 children with me that had ants crawling on then the entire trip. Due to the pickup delay we were running late to our event so I didn't have time for another vehicle of that size to be located to switch although it was offered.

Pros:

Since our reservation booked us at a non existent location, the nearby Enterptise took us in quickly and upgraded our rental car.

Cons:

Kayak booked us at an Enterprise that had closed/did not exist anymore. It was challenging with our 6 month old, but eventually worked out.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and informative.

Cons:

I tried calling multiple locations to exchange my rental for another one because I had a nail in the tire and other problems and no one answered nor anyone called me back, 1 location was the wrong number, please have your locations update their locations and phone numbers. Picking up my rental was not clean and smelled like smoke and dog.

Pros:

Nothjng

Cons:

First off they called me to tell me the location I had booked with was not going to be open and that I needed to come to another location. They said “they would make it worth my time”. They definitely did not. They gave me a Jeep Compass that struggled to climb hills and got horrible gas mileage for an intermediate SUV. The car was halfway washed on the outside and not vacuumed on the inside. The tank was literally left on E with the low gas light on! To top it all off when I booked I had selected to drop the car off at 11 pm when we got back to town cause I had to work the next day and wasn’t going to be able to. They told me if I didn’t get back by 7-8 that I wouldn’t be able to drop it off because they are inside a car dealership (original location I selected was not) and the gate would close. When I asked if I could just drop it off elsewhere they told me sure, but I would be charged more for a one way pick up and drop off. They didn’t even try to work with me. Definitely will not be using hertz again.

We have used Alamo many times prior to this visit and to be honest was disappointed. we hired a Chevy Tahoe, but was allocated a Nissan Amada on arrival, The car was not in the cleanest condition, but after a long flight we didn't want to make any fuss. soon after we noticed other faults with the car in terms of drive quality and performance. We will likely return to Alamo again but will take greater care with car we are allocated
