Cons:

It would have helped to know that the Enterprise agency where we had rented from on-line was closed at noon on Saturday, especially as we didn't arrive until 1:00 p.m.. We were never able to pick up our rental car.

Pros:

Staff was friendly but unhelpful when I needed to return the rental after an hour when we realized the mattress we were trying to donate would not fit safely into the truck bed. They would not refund the purchase although fuel unchanged and plenty of inventory on lot indicating we were not tying up any vehicles. Very disappointing.

Pros:

We cancelled this vehicle via phone call and on line. We are still being charged for the car.

Cons:

Accept a cancellation by phone and via online and refund charged fees to the customer in a timely fashion.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Pickup experience was a nightmare and I was placed into a dirty car.

Cons:

Speed at checkout. They should have cleaned the car... esp during Covid. They should have placed me into a different car if they didn’t have time to clean the car they put me into. I also could not get ahold of customer service for the life of me. Awful experience.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off at SFB was easy. We had to change our drop-off location mid-trip and this was easy to do over the phone using the “rental extension” phone number on our initial receipt.

Cons:

Was traveling with an IL driver’s license that had its expiration date extended 6 months by the state of IL due to Covid-19. No issues with TSA in 3 different airports. No issues anywhere except Hertz in St. Petersburg where the store manager would not allow me to pick up the car. In the state of FL, Hertz does not have good options for dealing with toll roads. You can either pay an exorbitant amount of money up-front (for our rental period something like $70, way more than the amount we would pay in tolls), or you can get charged afterwards for the tolls you use + a $10 administrative fee for each. There are several toll roads where you can only “pay by plate” or transponder and there is no option for paying with cash, so if you don’t know the area and your navigation takes you on one of these roads, Hertz has you over a barrel.

Pros:

The Hertz rental at that location no longer exists. I took an Uber to and from the location from my home, $18. I waited outside on hold for over 20 minutes while an agent tried to find another location with a car. No such luck. My Christmas plans were ruined.

Cons:

Update your website to reflect accuracy.

Pros:

The car was a beautiful brand new 2020 model. The interior was sparkling clean and the exterior only had a few chipped paint spots. The car drove smoothly and fit my wife and I’s need.

Cons:

The staff at the pickup location was rude. Was not friendly and could’ve made the process of checking in for the car for enjoyable and less stressful.

Pros:

Worst experience with a rental company I have ever had. Was not able to retrieve my rental car because even though I had a reservation they decided to give my car away. Missed my best friends wedding because surrounding car rental companies were too expensive to buy the day of. Could have figured out a different option had I known my reservation would not be honored.

Cons:

Worst customer service.

Pros:

Staff was nice. They just didn’t have any cars when we got there. Said it would be 3 hours or I could upgrade. We had planned on have a full size. I had to upgrade to an suv that cost $100 more then plan on.

Cons:

Just having a a car for me or budget making up the difference.

Cons:

Reserved for convertible- was told none was available. This is I spite of reserving it several months in advance. No attempt to try to find another vehicle in surrounding areas. Asked to call central reservation number for budget - they were no help at all. Did not even offer to reduce rates as promised vehicle was not available. Very poor service.

Mar 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Got the keys right away, was able to drop the car off after hours.

Cons:

After getting the keys, was told to remove the sunpass from windshield since I had my own and didn’t want the additional charges. I couldn’t remove it- no one was around to help. I saw a man that worked there and asked for help, then yelled for help but he ignored me and kept walking. Also, if you leave your vehicle there you have to park it across the street.... so walking across 6 lanes of fast moving traffic is a little unsettling.

4.0 Okay

KAYAK

Pros:

The auto was clean and economical

Cons:

We were informed that we could pick up the rental at the st. Pertersburg/Clearwater airport. At the Budget counter, we were informed that at the car had to be picked up at the Budget office 16 miles away in city. We wasted a couple of hours scrambling to find transportation in an unfamiliar city. The agent at the city Budget office was rude and inconsiderate The whole experience was awful. We will not use Budget to rent an auto again.

Pros:

Cons:

We reserved a van for our family vacation far in advance. When I arrived on the morning g of the reservation, I was informed there were no vehicles. They didn’t bother to call me so I could make other arrangements. It was right after a holiday weekend so we couldn’t find any other vehicles and had to take multiple cars on our trip. Very disappointed.

Cons:

Car rental was not at airport, was offsite at an old hotel which was very strange. Shuttle was broken down upon arrival and not running for our departure. We had to take an Uber to the airport which was very inconvenient because we were traveling with a car seat and a small child. This location should not be included as an airport location.

Leaving us one seat. We were told that he would be back in 20 minutes or so to pick us up. Another rental was there in fact this was their third trip there while we were waiting for our guy to show up the first time. He offered us the same deal and we went with them maybe you need to have better service for pick up. We had two ladies that were almost 70 standing out in the sun waiting. We will think twice before using you again

Top tips for hiring a car in St. Petersburg

  • As a tourist in Saint Petersburg, the best way to see this exciting city is by car. Within the comfort of your own car, rather than taking the time-consuming public transport, you can visit all the sights at your own pace. From exploring the coast of Tampa Bay to the Museum of Fine Arts, you can easily access all the sights with the luxury of a hire car.
  • Looking forward to renting a car on your trip to Saint Petersburg? When you fly into Tampa International Airport, the on-site car hire desks can be located using the SkyConnect train from the Main Terminal. If you have booked an off-site car hire company, you can use the courtesy vehicle service in the Red and Blue Baggage Claim areas. It is really easy to find a hire car in the terminal.
  • Driving around Saint Petersburg is a very laid back, thanks to its navigable roads. When you are in your car, it’s good to know that cyclists have the same rights to the roadways as other vehicles, so they must obey the same traffic laws. Throughout Florida, drivers must always keep headlights on and may turn right at a red light unless a “no turn on red” sign is posted.
  • In Saint Petersburg, the rush hour begins in the morning between 7:30 am and 9:30 am and again in the afternoon from 3:30 pm to 7:30 pm. During these peak times, it’s best to avoid the popular I-275 exits and Hillsborough Avenue as well as the Veterans Expressway. It’s a good idea to steer clear of driving during rush hour on Monday mornings and Friday evenings, along with national holidays.
  • Book your rental car in St. Petersburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in St. Petersburg are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average
