KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gulfport

  • If your next vacation trip is to head over to Gulfport, you might want to rent a car and stop at a few famous attraction sites. Gulf Islands Waterpark is located on Interstate 49 and London Road, 11min away from the Biloxi Regional Airport. Or you can take a Gulfport nature tour of the Mississippi Sandhills Crane Wildlife Refuge, which is only a half-hour drive from the airport. Don’t forget shopping at Gulfport premium shopping outlets or a boat ride at the beautiful Marina. There are many transport options you can choose to get to all these destinations around the city. Buses and taxis are adequate options, but most buses adhere to specific routes and taxi prices are fixed, making public transportation not so cost-effective if you want to explore outside the city center. Car rentals in Gulfport will give you the flexibility to visit whichever place you want conveniently.
  • The Biloxi Regional Airport is the main airport in Gulfport, providing domestic and regional air transport services. There are about 10 car rental companies at the airport, including Ace, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and U-Save. Some of these Gulfport car rentals have pick-up services from the exit terminal to their rental offices, such as Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, and Hertz.
  • Being a tourist city, Gulfport experiences high traffic congestion on some of its highways. This is more common during the high peak holiday seasons. The city also experiences varying temperatures, especially during the winter nights. When driving on Gulfport roadways at night, you might experience ice on bridges and overpasses as they tend to refreeze when the temperature drops. We recommend that you use caution in such circumstances. Also, watch out for jaywalking pedestrians and bicyclists.
  • There are certain hours in Gulfport where traffic is heavy on roadways. The rush hour is typically between 6:30am-9am Monday through Friday, beginning again around 4pm-5:30pm. However, the busiest roads are located or interconnected to Interstate 51, including Creosote Road, Orange Grove, Courthouse, and Pass Road. If you’re on a schedule or you’re trying to catch a flight, keep these times in mind when planning your route.
  • Book your rental car in Gulfport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Gulfport are around 3% cheaper than other car types, on average

You allowed us to rent a car that they did NOT HAVE!!!! They were sold out of cars and that is the only reason that we flew into GPT. They had been out of cars for days due to a special event that was happening in the city. All agencies were out of cars. Very bad business.

Staff was very friendly but certainly understaffed. I was contacted 8 hours prior to picking up that the lot I was supposed to pick up from would be closed and to pick up at the airport. Once at the airport I was told they had no cars. After about one hour, we got a car. Staff was good and not her fault. The original pick up area over promised and should have called sooner.

Nov 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

car was excellent.

Cons:

customer service agent at the counter was very rude to my husband as the original reservation was under his name at noon. The agent first told my husband that since we are late we dont have your car any more and we can give you fullsize for 10.99 per day extra. when my husband tried to reason she got all defensive and bluntly said do you want this car or not... when my husband said he works for hertz and know what customer service is she said its their policy not to hold cars. At this moment my husband requested revised total for upgrade car and the agent flatly refused to give car. She said that now she does not have any vehicles available. At this time my husband came Nd got me and thats when I realized I had another reservation for 9pm under my name. She was forced to give us a car now and in the end she apologized to my husband but it was a fake apology and little too late. We appreciated the free upgrade but didnt need it. Her name is on the rental agreement as agent who did our contract. When we returned the car on monday the agent that closed our contract did not even greet or asked us if everything was ok. Bottom line horrible customer service. My husband works as rental agent dealing with hundreds of customers and he understands customer service. National at Gulfport provided the most horrific customer service of his life... very sad...

Dec 2016

Pros:

I loved the fact that Dollar Rental was open.

Cons:

I was stranded in Mississippi the day before Thanksgiving. My car was towed so I reserved a car with Avis at the airport in Gulfport. My pickup time was 11pm. When I arrived at 1056pm, no one was at the counter. I asked the rental rep. from Enterprise(I think) if there was anyone there she said they were gone. Out comes the Avis Rep. from the back at 1058pm. I introduce myself and state that my pick up is at 11pm. She says "we're closed for today". I said to her that my pickup time is 11, how are you closed before my pickup time? She said "we've already closed" and proceeded to walk out the door. Thank goodness the Dollar Rental had an associate that was willing to help and actually worked her complete shift! I will never rent from Avis again due to this experience. When I needed them most, their representative left me standing there, stranded in Mississippi. Thanks Dollar Rental.

Jul 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was clean and even compatible with Florida toll ways for a small daily fee plus the cost of each individual toll, a very convenient addition. The vehicle was very clean and nice.

Cons:

The woman who helped me explained nothing, I suppose she assumed I knew everything possibly because I had a reservation. She was short with her sentences and seemed overall just unhappy. She was not rude by any means, but my reservation was for a Ford Focus or similar and I received a Volkswagen Jetta which is completely fine. She didn't even tell me this though. She handed me the keys and assumed I just knew. I'm not sure honestly what her thought was. She didn't even attempt to explain the rental contract or any of the warnings such as non smoking or the fine. I was not offered any information regarding additional insurance and I'm still unaware if that was actually an option. I felt as if she did not care in the slightest about myself or my lack of knowledge regarding the details of renting a car from Avis for the first time. Overall she was utterly useless. A machine similar to that of a Red Box type of kiosk that dispenses keys would have likely been FAR more helpful.
