  • When flying into Pelham, the most likely destination airport is Birmingham Airport (BHM). Despite the fact that it is not immediately located in Pelham, BHM is a short drive away. If you intend to rent a car at BHM, please keep in mind that car rental firms are conveniently located in the Rental Car Facility, a distinct facility next to the main terminal complex.

I made a reservation for Friday am at 8 am several days in advance. After waiting in line about 15 minutes, they told me that they were still waiting for cars and didn’t have one for me and they would unlikely have one that day. I understand things happen but there was no communication that they could not fulfill the reservation. Very disappointing to say the least.

Hertz didn't have my reservation. Enterprise asked me to come back in a hour/...Caleb was wonderful to work with and had me in a car within the hour and made me feel like i was doing him a favor instead of the other way around, I will use him and enterprise from here on out.

The Nissan Rogue which I ended up with does not have the most awesome seats for a long drive... and the GPS (several times) didn't have a clue as to where we were or how to get where we were going... phone navigation saved the day...
