Pros: Staff were greatCons: Price was stiff
8.0 Excellent15 Apr 2021
Pros: After a 45 min wait in line because know one was at the Alamo counter the ladies got us out fast at enterprise when we finally got to them. The drop off was super fast and smooth.Cons: Have staff at the counter of the car company your renting from

Pros: Brand new car. Staff very pleasant.Cons: Nada
10.0 Excellent26 Nov 2020
Pros: Yes! Friendly professional staffCons: Loved my KIA SOUL
10.0 Excellent16 Nov 2020
Pros: Super friendly staff (especially Herman, he made our visit and trip so much better). Clean car. Easy pick up and drop off.Cons: I had reserved a minivan and ended up getting an SUV. The trade was fine, but I would've preferred the minivan.
10.0 Excellent2 Nov 2020
Pros: Alamo is the best. Always friendly and accommodating.
6.8 Good28 Oct 2020
Cons: First of all my sister had rented the car and I was the driver unable to pick up vehicle and Tony was no help and very rude. 2nd the next rear tire kept going low and we had to stop frequently to our air in the tire. We called a lost the tire issue and was told we needed to take it to Firestone and have the tire fixed or have them change the spare. There was no sense in Alamo sending someone out for just a tire. Well if that tire had blown out you would of been doing more than just a tire. I don’t feel it’s my job to fix the tire on a rental care but then again pick was terrible so why would I think custom service would be any better. Do not rent from Alamo ever
10.0 Excellent27 Oct 2020
Pros: Friendly staff and very accommodating. I wasn’t able to get the SUV I wanted but was offered to come back to get a bigger car the next day. My family & I were able to make it work though so no worries.Cons: They were really busy and I think they did well with helping all of us and getting us out of there as fast as possible.
4.0 Okay22 Oct 2020
Pros: I rented form Alamo and no one was at the booth so had to go thru Nattional and the line was very longCons: Price was amost 30 dollars more then what was suppose to be and they would not change it
10.0 Excellent20 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff was a delight early Monday morning when I came to pick up a vehicle for a long ride North. Additionally when explaining the purpose of my rental Herman Patton, not only attentively listened but, was helpful in guiding me to a vehicle that better suited my needs. His advice has proved to provide to me a safer, more economical , and appropriate rental choice. So much so that I have just extended the rental for another week. Thanks again to all 4 of the staff, and I wish to reassert my opinion if it will help settle the issue of whether the agent claiming it was her 50th birthday was being truthful - doesn't look a day over 35.

Pros: Yes thanks
4.0 Okay1 May 2021
Cons: On pick up, they gave us a choice of 3 mustang convertibles “upgrade” because our 4 door std was gone . The agent tried blowing smoke up our butts. Traded it in next day. Drop of was easy but agent was unable to print a receipt . Said they would email it. Haven’t seen it yet so don’t know if charges were correct. Not impressed.
8.0 Excellent1 Apr 2021
Pros: I liked the comfort of the car and it's cornering. The staff was very nice and accommodating.Cons: I HATE all the assists on the car. It would constantly grab the wheel and forcibly turn it back into the lane if I got too close to the line. I also could not figure out the display panel without reading the manual. Also, the wait time at the Gallatin Pike office was exceedingly long. We had to wait for them to go pick up a car from the lot and it took a long time.
8.0 Excellent4 Mar 2021

Pros: Nothing. The rental place called me twice to confirm my reservation and failed to tell me that they would closed at my scheduled pickup time and cost me lots of money after being strandedCons: For the agency to be aware
2.0 Mediocre3 Dec 2020
Pros: The location wasnt open and we ended up cancelling. I’m now out $44 for insurance on a vehicle that i couldnt get. There is no service number that leads to a human being who can give me a refund. I wont be using Kayak againCons: Ability to get a human being to help

Cons: There was a little confusion at the Nashville airport as to where to pick up the car as there was no one at the Budget counter. There was a sign that told where to go buy then we weren’t sure what to do next.
2.0 Mediocre5 Jun 2021
Pros: We canceled due to poor customer service and ridiculous pricing for a few extra hours.
10.0 Excellent4 Jun 2021
Pros: Cars available in garage adjacent to terminal. As usual, had to wait about 20 minutes to check in at terminal desk, but the rest of the procedure was very efficient. We had the VW Tiguan nearly 3 weeks & it was a great car.Cons: Only one agent available at terminal desk. They need more help there.
8.0 Excellent18 May 2021
Cons: Communication
6.0 Good13 May 2021
Pros: Yes very friendlyCons: extremely long wait to get our car and very poor directions as to where it pick it up. We followed the signs inside only to be told that we needed to go outside and then proceeded to wait 45mins to get our car.
6.0 Good10 May 2021
Pros: The vehicle itself was new and it was comfortable. It was great for the amount of people in my party.Cons: I was charged a $500 dollar deposit. Which I was told it would be $250. The customer service representative couldn’t tell me a reason why it was elevated amount. She even told me it should be $250. Second. The car itself was new and clean but it definitely had a smell of smoke. I wish they would have cleaned the air out before renting it again.
2.0 Mediocre10 May 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Everything. There was no SUV available whatsoever and that’s what I requested. I ended up with a Passat with 10 miles left of gas. The guy there told me I would have to take it to get it filled or wait for a while because they didn’t have another “big” car. When I opened the trunk to load, it was completely full of trash and boxes so I had to clean that out. I had to wash it because the windows were filthy and the inside was dirty as well. Horrible experience.
10.0 Excellent27 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff with pick up and drop off were super nice and accommodating.Cons: Not sure anything could have been better. The vehicle worked great for us! Maybe a radio station list?
10.0 Excellent1 Apr 2021

2.0 Mediocre28 Mar 2021
Pros: Nothing.Cons: They wouldn't rent to me even thought I am 30 years old. They told me because I didn't come off a plane that they wouldn't rent me the car that I had reserved for me to go home.

Pros: Nothing reallyCons: Price, could have been better, better directions of pick up and drop off location, could have had more engaging service professionals
6.0 Good13 May 2021
Pros: Nice clean carCons: After pre-paying we got to counter and 600.00 was help as a security deposit! Unbelievable.
2.0 Mediocre23 Apr 2021
Cons: Upon arrival, they did not accept our reservation through Kayak because the person on the reservation was not present. We tried MULTIPLE times to adjust the reservation to reflect the change in driver through kayak. Kayak was never available to do so. Because of kayaks lack of adequate costumer service, Thrifty made us make a different reservation. They charged us an OBSENE price for an average car. I understand Thriftys policy. Our frustration is with kayak and their horrible customer service.
2.0 Mediocre23 Mar 2021
Pros: Car was okCons: 1. Arrived Friday evening. There was a 1 hour wait in line to get a car. Thrifty shares space in the garage with Hertz et al and there was just one man behind the counter. Unbelievably bad service. Waited longer in line than the drive to Clarksville. 2. Upon return, I didn't have time to fuel the car. Knew it would be costly, but it didn't help that they lied on the form and said they had to put 18 gallons in it. The gas level was at half. Do Kia's really have 36 gallon tanks?
6.0 Good7 Mar 2021
Pros: I liked the drop off more than the pick up. The lady acted as if she didn’t want to be there. She was ok nice. Definitely not the worse but just made me feel like I was a burden to her.Cons: Overall ok I will rent again but wish I could have been more comfortable
4.0 Okay17 Feb 2021
Cons: Rented me an ice covered car With window washing fluid in it That also froze to the windshield Because it was a cold weather windshield washing fluid And yes the car eventually broke down on the way home

Cons: The minivan was not as clean as it should have been inside. Obvious surfaces were clean, but the parcel trays and such (it was a minivan) had old chunks of food, crumbs, etc. still there uncleaned. Overall the van was in good condition and comfortable, and was the best value available for what we needed.

Cons: Line to pickup was over 45 minutes. Needs to be faster
6.0 Good23 Mar 2021
Pros: The gentlemen at the gate leaving the rental parking lot was friendly and welcoming.Cons: There was a long line to pick up outside, we had a reservation for a specific time. Also, when I book there was the option for economy, compact and “staff choice” for the same price, choose staff choice and got the smallest car available (economy), I would have picked compact if I knew. The wait at the airport was the worse for sure, it was windy and cold. We found out later they had a counter indoors but there was no signage guiding us.
8.0 Excellent28 Feb 2021
Cons: I had the dealers choice option. But they were short cars, so then to pay $60 more dollars to get a Jeep Wrangler, but that was the smallest one they had , and it was just the 2 of us. We didn’t need a large suv like suburban or a van.
2.0 Mediocre17 Feb 2021
Cons: The car had mechanical problems and Dollar offered no help or reimbursement
6.0 Good7 Feb 2021
Pros: It was an easy check-in/check-out experience. The car was nice.Cons: We paid for and ordered a Range Rover Discovery (7-seater), but were given the Evoque (5-seater). The car had much less room than we ordered and paid for. We also had to buy and add coolant as it was VERY low and the light came on. The light also came on for low tire pressure so we had to take care of that as well. Then, on the way home the "Service Now" light came on, so it makes me wonder when they checked out the fluid levels, etc. last.
4.0 Okay5 Feb 2021
Pros: Pickup staff very helpfulCons: The Nissans lock down themselves with keys in the ignition. There is no note about this in the car. We were locked out fir 1.5 hours and missed our tour. The safety of this is unacceptable if we had a child or pet locked in the car with it running we would have had to break the window. Could be a very dangerous situation in the heat.
4.0 Okay1 Feb 2021
Pros: The car was very clean, drop off very smooth and the person working was friendly.Cons: Very long wait to get the car, an hour and a half from landing to driving off airport property. The checkout lady was friendly, but failed to mention extra charges until everything was printed up for me to sign and I’m like what is this extra $60?
10.0 Excellent6 Jan 2021

Pros: NothingCons: Staff had left for the night when I arrived at 10:15 pm to their desks. I had to rent at a higher cost with a competitor. I will not rent from Advantage again.
8.0 Excellent6 Apr 2021
Cons: Check out process was slow. Too much pressure sales tactics to purchase pre paid fuel and extra insurance. Car was good except that it had a low tire which was corrected at a local gas station. The checkin process was unclear as there was no attendant. No signage about the key drop box. The cost was also high for basically a one day rental. The larger companies are more efficient but we where grateful that they had cars available.

8.0 Excellent6 Feb 2021
Pros: .the price was goodCons: The pickup was a pain. There were no signs telling me where to find the Payless counter. The car shakes at highway speeds (I assume wheel balancing is needed) and 2 of the tires were at 22 PSI, SO I had to put air in them once I got it
8.0 Excellent5 Feb 2021
Pros: The price and availability was great!Cons: There was really poor signage in ATL and we ended up having to hunt someone down and drive to a garage that was not labeled Payless. It cost us a lot of time and energy
2.0 Mediocre25 Jan 2021
Pros: The car itself was nice, clean and good quality.Cons: The day after we ordered the car through Priceline (nonrefundable), our flight changed to 1041pm arrival. We had ordered for 8pm pickup. I tried for weeks and weeks to contact the Nashville Payless desk to ask about a late pickup. There was never any answer. The phone system was apparently out of service, as it always went to a fast busy signal. We tried to work with Priceline for help, and we also called the Payless national customer service number, but neither were any help. All they could tell me was to call the local desk and nobody would offer to try to contact them directly for me due to the phone issue. The best I could get was that I could come back the next day and pick up my car at 7am when they opened again. Well, when I arrived at the Nashville airport at 1041pm, I tried to go to the desk just to see if anyone was there. There was not. I went up to the car lot and there were three floors with various rental brands, none of which were marked for Payless. There was no signage at all as to where to go for Payless cars. I went to one of the floors and asked one of the other companies as was told that he was pretty sure the Payless guys left for the night, so I took an Uber to the hotel and another Uber back in the morning at 7am. I went to the desk again, and nobody was at the desk. I went back out to the parking lot and talked to a person from another company and he said yes he could help me for Payless cars. Again, no signage, just randomly asking someone and he luckily said he could help me. I told him about the experience the night before and he implied that if I would have come to this floor last night, there would have been someone here to help me. I was very, very frustrated because I could have saved approximately $50 on Uber charges. Then, when trying to return my car at the Atlanta airport, we followed the signs to the Payless lot, where again, nobody was present. I went to another desk and asked where to return Payless cars, and they said Avis lot. We ended up have to go around the loop 3 times until we figured out how to get to the Avis lot and finally yes someone there could accept the return of the car. It was unbelievably difficult and frustrating.

Cons: Waited 30 minutes in line for agent. Given Avis car Dropped off in ATL at Avis, told to go to counter with no explanation why. At Avis counter, told car was Payless so had to then go to Payless contours on other floor. Payless agent was rude, never saying hello, thank you-poor CS!

Pros: Nothing, nothing, nothing!!!!Cons: EVERYTHING!!! Customer service was awful, the guy just didn't want to try to work. He just wanted to sit there until the store closed. He didn't even want to look at his computer. He didn't even try to help us! Communication was terrible. Um, maybe notify that there were zero vehicles available before paying an uber to drop us off at the location I was told. No one was available to speak to when I tried to resolve this problem by calling customer service. My whole company uses Hertz. I book rentals for the executives and directors quite a lot. With this personal experience, I'm canceling our membership! I need my money back and some more for inconvenience. This is bad. This location, 3100 Charlotte Ave, Nashville, TN needs to be shut down. They screwed everyone in the past from the reviews I've read and they screwed everyone that day.

Pros: Tried to give us a cargo van.Cons: Any normal car

Cons: Everything!!!!
2.0 Mediocre24 May 2021
Pros: The car was nice.Cons: Our “cost estimate” conveniently left off the $300 under 25 fee, so we were tricked into thinking we were getting the best deal on a rental. We had a tire pop and were told to drive 3.5 hours on the highway with a donut on, and had to ask every possible question from the “emergency assistance personal” because he wouldn’t give us any information unless we specifically asked for it first. This is the first time we’ve rented a car, and I can guarantee you it’s the last time we rent from hertz.
2.0 Mediocre21 May 2021
Cons: I asked for a car at the airport and when I checked in there was told my car had been reserved at a downtown site and they did not have a car for me at the airport facility. Cost me an additional $30 to get a cab to my car. Kayak should refund me $30 Certainly didn’t save me any money to use Kayak Never will again for sure
10.0 Excellent20 May 2021
Pros: The staff that checked me in was extremely quick, friendly and efficient. He was by himself and got everyone through quickly, all while maintaining a welcoming and friendly attitude. A+ team member!Cons: Cleanliness of vehicle was lacking. Car was still dirty on the interior and smelled. Car alignment was way off too.
2.0 Mediocre18 May 2021
Cons: We were never even able to get a rental car; even though we made a reservation days in advance, they ran out of cars. There were 7 angry people ahead of us waiting for cars. We didn’t have the time so we had to uber. Not a good experience. I sure hope I can get all of my money back.
8.0 Excellent17 May 2021
Pros: Staff was great. Drop-off was easy.Cons: Gouging customers on rates is not the fault of the customers, but rather the decision to off load inventory during a pandemic. Did you think it was never going to be business as usual again? Artificial supply and demand is almost criminal.
2.0 Mediocre10 May 2021
Pros: Waited hours in line to get the carCons: A system that works would have been better, and maybe desk personnel that communicate what’s going on at the time.
2.0 Mediocre5 May 2021
Pros: Nothing at allCons: Provide accurate information to your customers

StipulationsPros: The agent was helpful and helped me rent with another company.Cons: I didn’t realize renting with EZ rent a car had stipulations. I was renting locally so I couldn’t rent a mid-sized SUV and wouldn’t be allowed unlimited miles in the compact car rental.

EZ Car was just okPros: Pick up right at airport, no bus ride.Cons: Would not allow my husband to drive the car without paying extra since the registration was in my name. Lesson learned, won't do that again. Also, the car had a funny odor, wasn't a problem when the air was running,

Pros: Staff was ok, except he downgraded my car without telling me.Cons: Be Honest. And also assign the car that had been reserved or tell me why not. Pickup lot was.too far from the desk to go back for a correction. Plenty of cars were in the lot with no one attending it for me to talk to.
10.0 Excellent7 May 2021
Pros: Staff at pickup was excellent. Car (Camry) was even better than we expected.Cons: Price was high, but we know that there is a shortage of cars available. Person at check-in didn't visually check out the card or give us a "clean bill of health" until we asked.
2.0 Mediocre28 Mar 2021

6.0 Good14 Oct 2020
Cons: Travel plans change and you can't always be on time to pick up the car. I was three hours late and they gave my car away so I had to take a smaller car at the same price. This is not a good practice. The time set ups need to be more flexible.
2.0 Mediocre25 Aug 2020
Pros: The person who processed my rental upon my arrival in Nashville, was very rude, humiliating and treated me and family as if he was better than us. This was my first time renting a car from Avis, and my experience was obnoxious. I would never ever rent from your company again, because I normally rent from Enterprise where am treated with respect and dignity!!! Your company need to train your workers to treat people with respect and dignity, no matter your race, religion or ethnics!!!Cons: Teach your workers to have respect to human, no matter what race you are.... we are all humans!!!

Top tips for hiring a car in Nashville

  • Get the most out of your trip to Nashville and reach ultimate flexibility by opting for a hire car upon your arrival. Nashville city, the lake, and the wildlife area located 32 miles from Nashville invite visitors to come explore. Whether with your family or on another kind of trip, a hire car will provide the opportunity to explore everything at your pace and time, especially as the public transport system is not ideal in Nashville.
  • Nashville Airport is located about 10 miles from Nashville’s center and picking up the hire car there allows travelers to start their journey to Nashville quickly and easily. The international airport boasts its own car hire facilities, which are easily accessible from all terminals and include agencies like Enterprise, Thrifty, and Alamo.
  • Nashville drivers are not known for being the most patient, so driving defensively is a good idea. Turn signals are often not used before changing lanes and drivers often go above or way below the given speed limit -- but don’t be tempted to do the same. Drivers are also known for not turning on their headlights at night, so drive attentively and keep an eye out for other vehicles.
  • As in most cities, driving during rush hour is also not advisable in Nashville. Avoid times in the morning between 7 and 9 AM and 4 to 6 PM in the evenings, as congestions and traffic jams will clog up the streets. Also bear in mind that snow storms can sometimes occur and ice up the roads, and it is advisable to refrain from driving if you’re not used to such weather conditions, or at least ensure the hire car is equipped appropriately.

There are also marked governmental parking lots where cars can be parked after business hours and during the night.
