Pros: Ease of return. Close to terminal.
Cons: Confusion on fuel charge. It was, however, resolved in fairly short order. I guess it was a difference in how the localities (JAX and TLH) do the pre-paid fuel charge.

Convenient and efficient
Pros: I really like the location of this pick-up/delivery site; the staff are efficient and unflappable.
Cons: Avis prices have gone up and are not as competitive as I recall from last year. I have to weigh the convenience of easy pick up and delivery against cost of renting from airport competitor. Not crazy about the Kia Sol. Light and boxy. Didn't handle wind and traffic gusts well. Very small gas tank. It otherwise drove nicely.

Great car, terrible telephone service
Pros: The car was clean, comfortable and a breeze to pick up.
Cons: When I needed to modify my reservation, I waited longer than 30 minutes to be connected. The customer service agent was unintelligible, and would not accommodate my request. I ended returning this car and renting another from a competitor at a much better rate. Beware their customer service is outsourced and not handled with excellent customer service standards.

drop off disappointment
Pros: 1st car reeked of smoke, agent was happy to have changed to alternate car. My eta upon return was planned 1 am - I'm told drop off box is available at counter for after hours returns. I confirm that again before getting car + reconfirm that while driving back, with my approx ETA again. Upon arrival cant get to drop box as all entrances are locked, despite what I was assured earlier.
Cons: I arrive to find all entrances to get to counter are locked. No drop box available at parking lot either. Called Alamo cust service - each time takes 15 min of hold time. Im first told to come back during open hours! Then told to leave keys in car and lock but that I need to call and relay this to Alamo in AM ( when I'd be on a flight). When I ask for agent name, he hangs up. Sounds a bit shady? Called back again to get different agent (after obligatory 15 min wait time) who finally gives me correct procedure. So, great service at counter, good car condition, but Took 1.5 hrs to drop off car + surprisingly the local staff were unaware of after-hours drop off procedure even when given an ETA. BEware of After-hours cust service-very difficult to get hold of, and with an erratic service reliability.

Lots of problems and astronomical price!
Pros: The car was a Ford Fusion, fun to drive, economical on gas, got me where I needed to go.
Cons: Inside windshield was wiped with something greasy and I could hardly see. I had to pull over and clean it best I could. Lights shorted out day one in vehicles rear. An officer fixed it. They shorted again day two. Car cost $350 for two days

Cons: When I checked the car back in I wanted to see the invoice to be sure I was not charged for a 2nd day. The guy at the counter said he would send the invoice to me immediately and that I was only charged for one day. I saw on my phone that an invoice was sent, however, after I left and checked it, I could not open it. It stated that there was something wrong with either my driver's license # or the dates of pickup and delivery. I entered my DL right from the DL and the dates from the initial order form. There was no mistake but I could never see it.

Three tries to get a car
Pros: Staff at each of three locations were VERY busy, but helpful. It was not their fault good cars were not available.
Cons: Had to go to three Enterprise lots to get a clean car, one step lower than I initially reserved. First lot did not have a clean car I liked. Both available were somewhat beat up. 2nd lot had no similar cars available to rent. 3rd lot did not have the size I reserved, but overall I was very pleased with the Ford Focus I finally took away.

Good cust svc at enterprise
Pros: I booked for a 3:00 pickup. Kayak didn't tell me they closed at 3:00. I was running a little late and called. I was told system shuts down at 3:05. I arrived at 3:06 and rep unlocked doors and assigned my rental. Was very friendly while she did it. Pretty sure I got upgraded in the process because I ended up with a larger vehicle than expected.
Cons: I booked for a 1:00 rental pickup on another site at another agency. . Only to find out rental agency closed at 1:00. Missed that rental. Booked this rental for 3:00 Via Kayak and Kayak didn't tell me rental store closed at 3:00. I arrived at 3:06 and only by great cust svc from Enterprise was I able to pick up car. If I missed this one, it would have cost $100+ more to get from airport. both rentals ended up booking through the site with Captain Kirk and Penny, so my real beef is with them, I guess, but on the second one, I went through Kayak to get rental.

Intermediate
Cons: I did not like that I paid extra for an intermediate vehicle that did not have remote open doors. It was only openable by a key which was inconvenient and unsafe. In order to get into the trunk I had to unlock the car and reach down for a lever. If this is a 2017 vehicle then I'm sure there was a remote opener that opened both the car and trunk. Not happy about that. I don't know the last vehicle I have ever seen that didn't have a remote door unlock remote.

Not available
Pros: I arrived at the location and they didn't have my reservation and there was no vehicle available for me at that time. I had to go across town and came back with nothing. The people at Enterprise acted as if they didn't even care. Very disappointed and will never go there again.

Bait and switch
Cons: Contrary to their advertisement, they did not pick up or drop off. When I took a cab and arrived at the rental site, they tried to upsell me telling me that they didn't have what I had reserved in stock. What most other rental companies that I have dealt with do at this point is to rent the customer the next best car and give it to me at the rate of the rental agreement. Enterprise will not be receiving my business in the future.

It was like driving in a toilet. If this is used routinely, it should be discontinued. If it is used to cover cigarette smell, then cars should be designated smoking or non-smoking so one can request a non-smoking car.

Pros: Have a reservation made online with confirmation numbers and wouldn't honor the price. Literally twice as much once I got to the rental. Will be calling customer service today. I also waited 45min along with 2 other customers for the rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Tallahassee

  • With not one but several huge national parks just around the corner, it is a good idea to rent a car for your next trip to Tallahassee and discover the beauty of the city as well as the surrounding areas. Explore every nook and cranny of Tallahassee, from the Tallahassee Museum in the southwest, to the Automobile Museum in the very northeast. Get the most out of your trip on your own wheels and also explore some breathtaking nature beyond the city borders.
  • If you fly into Tallahassee International Airport, the most convenient way to start your journey is by choosing to rent a car directly from there. Various agencies offer their vehicles to be picked up from the airport garage, so you can be in the center of Tallahassee in about 15 minutes. Keep in mind that there is no public service running between the airport and the city, so you would otherwise have to get an expensive cab or Uber to get to your next destination.
  • The state of Florida has many toll roads so, if you’re planning on leaving Tallahassee, make sure to have enough change to pay the tolls (about $1). There is also the Move Over law enforced now in the state, which means if there is an emergency vehicle on the side of the road, drivers have to slow down 20 mph from the original speed, or move into the left lane.
  • Try to avoid the rush hours in Tallahassee for a smooth and hassle-free driving experience. Usually, peak times are on weekdays between 7 and 8:30am and 5 and 6:30pm. During that time, especially Monroe Street, Tennessee Street, and Apalachee Parkway can be severely congested, and familiarizing with the one-way streets of Duval or Bronnough can be helpful to circumnavigate the main routes.
  • Book your rental car in Tallahassee at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
