2.0 Mediocre15 Oct 2020
Pros: The attendant that helped with drop off was very helpful and nice. We had taken a picture of the mileage but it came out blurry and we couldn’t actually read it. He still helped and had us out quickly to catch our flight.Cons: The attendant was rude and short with us while trying to pick up the car. Once we got the car, it was filthy. There was soda or something spilled all over the front console and the Windows were so filmy it was hard to see out. The electric/automatic sliding doors didn’t work as well.
10.0 Excellent19 Jul 2020
Pros: The gentleman at the pickup counter was very overwhelmed when we arrived, but kept his cool and was a tremendous help! Also, the lot attendants were great! We had to wait a few minutes for them to retrieve a car seat we’d ordered. I could tell they were rushing to get it, and the woman at the booth outside was very friendly and helpful while we waited!Cons: So, the wait at PNS airport was almost 2 hours, not exaggerating at all! When I got to the counter, it was just one man working and I commented on him looking overwhelmed! He said it was a combination of him being the only worker AND people who just don’t return cars back, therefore they’re left scrambling trying to find cars in the same class that people reserved! I’m not sure what could be done about this, but if you’re arriving in Pensacola, just be ready to wait in pickup! Drop off was a breeze!
10.0 Excellent1 Jul 2020
Pros: Very friendly and upgraded us
8.8 Excellent18 Jun 2020
Pros: Good clean smooth running car.Cons: Picking up the car was difficult. The counter wasn't manned, however the Budget employee was in the back office with the door open eating. I had to go behind the counter into the doorway to get her attention. We was slow, soft spoken (I had to ask her repeatedly to say it again) and uninterested. Maybe she was having a bad day. I was told to leave the counter and go to the pick-up point and my car would arrive. I stood there almost 20 minutes. There was no one there. Finally my car came. All in all, not a smooth pick-up of a rental. Happily, drop-off was super smooth and the Budget experience I expected.
10.0 Excellent7 Jun 2020
Pros: Quick efficient and accommodatingCons: Nothing. That what a rental should be.

6.0 Good18 Feb 2020
Pros: The staff was friendlyCons: No one went over the vehicle with us so we could point out dents and the vehicle was very dirty. We had to stop to clean the windshield shortly after picking it up
2.0 Mediocre17 Oct 2019
Cons: Agent at the front desk was extremely rude. I made reservation 3 days prior which she would not recognize. Would not allow me to use my debit card even though the policy states if I flew in and out of pns and showed proof I would be able to use the debit card. She denied me service so I rented a car from hertz instead with no problems.
8.0 Excellent3 Sep 2019
Pros: Car was well maintained.Cons: Drop off at Fort Myers airport - There are no signs until you are at the entrance of each rental company so you are literally confused the entire time. The agent at pick up - added an extra day because I got off my plane 30 min early & said insurance bought there is better than online but +$20/day.
5.2 Okay18 Jul 2019
Pros: The car ran well.Cons: I had to wait in line to get the car for 30 minutes because only one employee was present. After I received the paperwork I walked outside to pickup the car and had to wait another 20 minutes.

Pros: I picked up the car at off-peak time and the rental was a breeze. I don’t think it took 5 minutes, from counter to driving away. Rental car was clean and got great gas mileage which saved money on top of the Kayak/Payless savings. All good!

Long line at airport, nice car, good servicePros: The fully loaded Pacifica I started with was terrific, except it had a bad rear tire that kept deflating. I called roadside assistance and they very kindly directed me to an Enterprise only 5 miles away to exchange vehicles with minimal hassle.Cons: I wish Alamo could have just replaced the tire, because the van I got in exchange from Enterprise was an ancient, dirty Grand Caravan with absolutely no modern features such as a backup camera, Bluetooth, or even USB. Not Alamo's fault but man that was a buzzkill for the rest of the week. Also, the line at the airport was just ridiculous.

Prerental damageCons: Long lines and waiting !!! Pré rental damage they are hassling me about. Then turn it over to independent DRU. For mysterious reason could not charge my current credit card - more inconvenience
7.6 Good14 May 2017
Pros: it was a nearly new unit!Cons: Booked a SUV about a month in advance got to Pensacola and no SUV they first tried to put me in a mini van or a car (I said no way I already had prepaid $700) then they went to all the other rentals to find a SUV finally they decided to go clean up a return we waited for 45-60 minutes for this all to take place then they had the nerve to charge me $80 for a car seat rental by that time I was not to happy with the whole situation our kids were hungry and unhappy we was needing to get on the road. Also I don't believe that the unit was ever cleaned up from factory delivery it only had 349 miles on when we rented it but there was still film and residue on the inside of the windshield.

Great experiencePros: I rented in PNS and the counter was literally steps from baggage claim. The process to rent and return was quick and the car was parked right across the street. The price for an SUV was way less than any others I compared. The gentleman who checked me in upon my return was awesome - very friendly and customer service oriented. He should be commended for his great attitude toward consumers.

4.0 Okay20 Jul 2020
Pros: We couldn’t figure out where to drop off the vehicle in turn we waisted a lot of the gas fuel we had already added to the gas. I was force to pay the 10 dollar for ever tank of fuel. I tried calling different number and no no I mean no one was able to provide me with information beyond the address for dropping off the vehicle worst experience ever?
8.8 Excellent11 Jul 2020
Cons: The pick up and drop was a little confusing. The Hertz counter is handling the Dollar rentals even though there is also a Dollar counter. At drop off, there was no attendant in the garage, only a sign telling me to take my rental agreement and key to the Hertz counter. I almost missed the sign due to other signage saying to use the drop box. The vehicle itself was very clean, fuel efficient and served it's purpose. The Hertz employees were friendly and helpful once I figured out that they were supposed to assist.

8.8 Excellent26 Nov 2017
Pros: Excellent customer service in PNS.Cons: Car had minor body issues - multiple scratches, windshield pits, door dents & air-dam damage. There was no attendant in the car area, so had to note the damage & return to the rental counter to report the condition of the car. Also, the driver side windshield wiper very much needed to be replaced. Windshield needed cleaning on the inside.

Bald tires and rainPros: NothingCons: The rental had bald tires to the point of dangerous when it rained

Pros: Customer service inside the airport was amazing!Cons: Because of how awful the customer service was via the 800 number I chose to go with a different company. There was no local person to talk to, and the 800 number representative was not helpful and extremely frustrating to talk to.
2.0 Mediocre19 Apr 2017

Pick up horror storyPros: Nothing. Description to follow.Cons: Ordered car online. Location was on a Pensacola Navy base which required DOD security clearance to enter. Appeared to be regular pick up location online. Called Enterprise to fix. They said they confirmed availability and transferred my reservation & sent me to location 10 miles away who had zero cars available. The wanted to give me 9 passenger “church style van”. Second location wanted to help but they had nothing. They said corporate representative never called to check availability. After waiting a long time another car was returned which they gave me. Hours wasted on our Florida vacation.
8.0 Excellent18 Jul 2017
Pros: Staff and vehicle were great.Cons: I thought I was reserving at the Pensacola Airport location but apparently didn't look closely enough because it wasn't. The airport provided me with a vehicle for an additional $200, almost doubling what I was expecting to pay. I'm not sure that was an Enterprise issue though, since I reserved through Kayak.

Rental not at airportPros: It was cheaper then renting at the airport. Maybe I missed something but when I got to the counter at the airport. I was at the wrong place. A cab ride and $15 with tip put me at the right Enterprise.Cons: I was at the wrong place. A cab ride and $15 with tip, put me at the right Enterprise.

2.0 Mediocre12 Oct 2020
Pros: No, the staff was rude and non-customer service oriented! I was shocked totally. ******Please be aware there is HERTZ airport location and a HERTZ offsite Pensacola location (10-15 minute Uber I was told by Don at airport counter) that is not differentiated in my reservation (or the search function!). I got to the airport counter and they said "not here, off-site location and by the way they are closed (Saturday at 12 noon). So, I received a reservation to a location that was closed! Then they said they had a car available for me at 400% the rate I had already paid!!!!!!! This is the truth so please be aware of this scam in Pensacola!!!!!!! I am reporting this to the Attorney General's office in the State of Florida at 1-866-9- No SCAM and I hope others do as well. This was a almost 3 weeks after Hurricane Sally and totally price gouging. We are part of a hurricane restoration group and this is appalling and shame on HERTZ. They simply left us out to dry and offered no assistance what so ever. My reservation in writing said that HERTZ will handle customer service on this confirmed reservation so I called and they did not answer the phone........ CRAZY!Cons: Based on this HERTZ poor experience I will go out of my way to NEVER rent from HERTZ again!

3.6 Mediocre11 Nov 2019
Pros: NothingCons: Despite having a reservation, had to wait in line at counter for over 45 minutes, as three agents were handling all rentals for Avis, Budget, and Payless, and none of the three seemed to have cars ready. After finally making it out to the garage, had to wait another 30 minutes because the car assigned to me was not ready—over an hour after my scheduled (reserved?) pick up time. Received a hybrid vehicle and did not appreciate the engine cutting off at every stop and the lack of power on the road. On return, only one guy was on duty trying to check in all the cars being returned. This operation is a joke; avoid it at all costs!

Y’all kids want some candy ?Pros: The price of the vehicle was great.Cons: The vehicle itself was a commercial van. Not cool dudes. I got their lowest price by having the vehicle assigned to me at the counter. Turned out to be a commercial van. Luckily I had candy to hand out to the local children

Inconvenient dropoffCons: Had to walk inside airport terminal to complete dropoff
5.6 Okay23 Jun 2017
Greg ZCons: I was sold on this car by the agent because it had Sirius XM radio but the subscription expired. It was also a mid size car lesser then the SUV I was supposed to have. I found out that they had very low inventory on SUV's. So I feel I was swindled.

Pros: Clerk was friendly but my problem was not being aware of a $500 deposit and that part cancelled the car rental.Cons: Being acknowledged about the deposit price
6.4 Good1 Sep 2020
Pros: YesCons: I never got my contract emailed to me and I already dropped the car off. I also have not got my money back for the hold they put on my card.
9.6 Excellent10 Aug 2020
Pros: Overall easy from reservation to billing to drop offCons: Did not love the policy to go back to the counter to return key. However, because Pensacola is a smaller airport, it was more reasonable than if this policy applied elsewhere.

Pros: Hours you are open needs work. Drop off at the Pensacolsa air port was awkward.

ACE rental cancelled...no pickup serviceCons: Usually when the rental company states that they are off airport, there is a statement that there is no shuttle to their location if that's the case. Well, this rental company is so far away from the airport that it would have cost me $40 to get there by taxi. No shuttle. And when I called, they said they "could" return me to the airport when I brought the car back. I doubt that would have happened. So, from now on, I will only reserve cars from companies that are co-located at the airport or that explicitly state they have a shuttle. Lesson learned for me. I ended up renting from a company co-located at the airport, by the way. It cost me an extra $30 from my ACE rental but I saved the round trip taxi fare and the time. I had to provide ratings, by the way, in order to have my review published. I never went to ACE.

When to book a rental car in Pensacola

Top tips for renting a car in Pensacola

  • A hire car is the perfect way to explore not only the coastal city of Pensacola, but also the state of Florida and its world-famous attractions, as public transportation between cities is not widely available. Drive to the famous Pensacola Beach, located on Santa Rosa Island, just 10 miles away from Pensacola. For a day filled with adventure, go to the Blackwater River State Park, just 52 miles from the city.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Alamo and Avis, can be found at Pensacola International Airport (PNS), which is conveniently located almost 4 miles from the city center. Car hire services are situated just across the baggage claim area, which is on the first floor of the airport’s main terminal. If you’re heading to Pensacola during peak season, consider booking your vehicle in advance.
  • While Pensacola is rather easy to navigate, the main attractions are pretty spread out, so be prepared to drive longer distances sometimes. All vehicles should stop at a red light, but a right-hand turn is then allowed if there is no oncoming traffic. The city is home to many college students, so if you’re driving at night be extra careful with reckless drivers or drunken pedestrians. Downtown is particularly crowded on weekends, so stay within speed limits and be alert.
  • The commute times in Pensacola are some of the best in the country, and traffic jams aren’t common. The I-98, which takes you to Pensacola Beach through Pensacola Bay and English Navy Cove, is usually pretty crowded during weekends and the summer. It’s also more packed on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. If you’re planning on heading to the beach, try going as early as possible or wait for the morning crowds to dissipate.
  • Book your rental car in Pensacola at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Pensacola are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average
