3.9 MediocreJul 11 2021
I waited in line for 40 minutes to pick up the car. There has to be a better way than a single agent taking 5+ minutes for every customer in line.

Drop off was super easyReserved a mid size SUV months in advance only to be told they didn’t have any. Said there should be some coming in if I wanted to wait a couple hours. Offered me an “upgrade” to a mid size sedan. Since I didn’t feel like sitting in an airport waiting I took it. He then proceeded to try and charge me over double until I produced the email with the reservation and price. I reserved the type of vehicle I did for ease of getting in and out if I wanted a sporty midsize I would’ve reserved it.

The car was clean and worked great!The wait was ridiculous! I waited over an hour and a half after I had paid and checked in. I was told I would receive a phone call when my vehicle was ready in approximately 30 minutes but didn't receive a call at all. After an hour I went back in line and when I finally reached the counter was told they couldn't find my order! Terrible service.

Reserved a car through Priceline for Panama Beach to be picked up at the airport. Our original flight was cancelled and we arrived 3 hours later than originally planned. The rental company counters were all extremely busy, and I could overhear a lot of people trying to rent cars who had not made reservations, so I was worried they might not have held our reservation for us but they still had our reservation, and the type of vehicle we requested.

Enterprise is conveniently located in this airport’s baggage claim area. Drop-off was quick & easy. An attendant promptly arrived for check-out. The walk from drop off isn’t long, no shuttle needed. Staff members were pleasant and helpful. This was one of the easiest car rentals I’ve experienced.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2021
We appreciated being upgraded to a larger vehicle for our trip. We loved getting to drive the expedition but it smelled so bad like cigarette smoke. My leather bags now smell like smoke after driving in the car for a few days. I know it is hard to get the smell of smoke out of the car but maybe an air freshener could have helped mask the smell somewhat.

The staff was great. No issues with pick up and drop box was fairly straight forward.The car smelled heavily of smoke when we got it. The power steering was making odd noises (may require additional power steering fluid). The right rear tire gave a lower pressure warning after having the car for a few hours. No issues after filling it up so didn't appear to be a structural issue.

Car was great. Drop-off was great. Picking up the car took forever. There was one person operating the desk and a line that took just under an hour to get through when I personally was up there for less than 5 minutes. If people are making changes, they need to move to the back of the bus or there needs to be another line for people that have there stuff together.

The car I've rented was not availableWhen I came to the rental place, lady told me to look elsewhere, they have no vehicles available. So I've ended up with no vehicles at all. Why would you offer a rental deal if you have nothing available.Very unprofessional
2.0 MediocreAug 18 2018
Car unavailableWhen I got to the airport, Hertz didn’t have a single car. The lady at the counter said they couldn’t actually guarantee my car until 24 hours following the reservation. In fact, of the seven or so car rental places at the airport, only one car rental place had a car. It was very expensive. So, I was stranded in the middle of nowhere without a vehicle until the next day.

Car was not clean and had many cosmetic damages. No one there to go over this at check in so I took my own pics tryued for 3 days to get through to someone lol I clarify they had this documented in their end So they went and tracked it charge me for this upon return. Never could get any assistance so hopefully this doesn’t happen if it does at least I do have my own back up she’s very frustrating to worry about something like that

Wish the rental parking lot at ECP was closer to the counters, or a shuttle was available, it was a long walk. Overall great though!
2.0 MediocreJun 21 2021
The entire process was poor. I admit that initially booking the vehicle was easy, but I was not able To change drivers name during booking process so when my daughter went to pick up vehicle they would not rent it to her and instead we had to cancel and book another rental vehicle at more than twice the daily rate. Three day rental went from $180 to $380. Will never use Kayak again.

Try to Charge me $450 cleaning for excessive garbage via letter in the mail to me. When I called the service number they would only take off half …$225!! I asked for proof and they said there was pitchers they had of some wrappers in the back seat and a coffee cup in the cup holder and some Cheerios my son spilled on the back seat … I am declining this charge. Sounds reasonable… This is standard to clean this up with any rental company, and the interior had no damage or stains.

Panama City BeachI reserved the special which was suppose to be a 5 seater. They gave us a Chevy Spark which is only a 4 seater with room to store 2 pieces of luggage. Obviously we all had luggage. So ended up having to upgrade, when I could have reserved a 5 seater for less. Also, the low air pressure light was on.
