Got a Chrysler mini van. Have used them 3x now and
Pros: Price
Cons: wish I could have dropped at local agency without incurring a massive upcharge. Had to take it to the airport as it was a several hundred dollar difference even though it was only approx 15 miles away.

Uneventful and friendly ... just the way we like it
Pros: We picked up the car with no problem, returned it with no problem. When we got back to the (off-site) location, they drove us to the airport, and did so promptly.
Cons: No shuttle between airport & off-site location. Had to take Lyft.

Reservations are a myth, like Bigfoot!
Pros: I reserved my full size car for 5 pm and paid the 27 dollars it asked of me. I arrived at the rental office at 530 and checked in. That is when I was told they had already given my car away because I was late. After reviewing the definition of the word review, they confirmed they have it away anyway and was told whatever I paid online was to the online company and not directly to their office, so it didn't count.
Cons: THEY GAVE AWAY MY FUCKING RESERVED CAR! I felt like Steve Martin in "Trains, Planes and Automobiles".

Drop off process not intuitive
Pros: Curbside drop was convenient. Inside agent was friendly.
Cons: I dropped the car off a small regional airport, so the ability to drive to the terminal and drop off 100ft from the entrance was convenient. The signage got me close. The rep who was outside directing customers where to park, etc. wasn't very helpful. A bit snarky and felt like I was being "talked down to."

Pros: The team was kind and quickly went through rental procedure.
Cons: It is very hard to find those who are in parking lot for returning vehicle, or any dents or scratches prior to leaving. A large return sign check point and perhaps a single point outside for scratch and dent concerns would be very helpful. Guys in a badly parked truck looked like other customers.

They didn't actually have a car available
Cons: Although I was able to reserve a car online, there was not an actual car available at the rental counter. So I rented a hotel room for the night and tried to call the rental counter at Mobile airport directly the next morning to make sure they had a car available before I schlepped back to the airport. Turns out it isn't possible to speak directly to a live body at the rental counter in the airport via phone. I could only get to their 800 call center and was told there was no local phone # so I couldn't speak to someone on site. I said the heck with it and got a car from Enterprise at a city-based location.

Bad service and a bad car
Pros: I liked Holly the person we returned our car too. She was the only nice person from Alamo and she apologized and took money off our bill.
Cons: I waited in line while there was only one person behind the counter and then 3 more lines opened up and they allowed several customers behind me to go ahead of me. The only thing left was a huge truck that our handicap passenger could not get up in. We had to physically lift her into the car each time.

Fast, great xar, great price

Cons: Couldn't figure out where the gas cap filler cap release was was? Odd for the vehicle? But all my other kias have had the gas release in the same place ...

Make sure your clients know where cars can be dropped
Pros: I liked the car and the price. The ease of ordering was nice too.
Cons: We had one heck of a time trying to get this car dropped off. There wasn't a Thrifty in Destin Florida that was open and we were told on the phone by customer service that we could not drop off at a Dollar or Hertz only to find out that the Dollar location could easily accept a Thrifty rental. It is a great benefit for clients to be able to drop off at many locations if needed. This should be conveyed to the customer.

quoted price was not honored
Cons: The kayak.com reservation showed the detailed price i would be paying including the added fees and taxes. when i got to the hertz counter, the attendant took the total including the taxes and fees and added another $30 for airport taxes and fees on top of the quoted price. Bottom line, it cost more than i was quoted. even though i showed him proof on paper of my quote, he refused to honor it.

Top tips for renting a car in Mobile

  • Rich in history, Mobile is a popular destination in the United States’ South. You will find it beneficial to rent a car so that you can visit some of the nearby resort and beach towns like Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Dauphin Island (accessed via ferry). With a hire car you can also enjoy the white sandy beaches of the Florida Panhandle.
  • Mobile Regional Airport offers easy access to many cities around Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida. This airport provides travelers with many modern conveniences including free wi-fi, coffee shops, eateries, and car hire services. Several hire car agencies are just steps from the terminal, including Thrifty, National, and Hertz. Some others are right across the street.
  • When driving on the Alabama highways, keep an eye out for construction workers. By law, you must move over to the lane farthest away from the worker(s) for added safety. Rainstorms are also very common in Mobile, which can cause difficult driving situations. If it starts to rain heavily while you are driving on vacation, be sure to turn on your headlights, slow down to keep control of your vehicle, and don’t brake suddenly, as this can cause you to hydroplane.
  • Rush hour in Mobile can add to your travel times. Traffic tends to get busy by around 6 a.m. for the morning commute, although it is the heaviest from 7 a.m. – 8 a.m. approaching downtown. In the evenings commuters typically return home from work between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., which can also cause some traffic delays. You’ll especially want to avoid driving on the George Wallace Tunnel during these times.
  • Book your rental car in Mobile at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
