Car was dirty at pickup. On drop off, attendant didn’t check us in or give us a receipt. Just yelled to leave the keys and we’ll get an email. Still haven’t gotten an email.

Cars in tallahassee location usually in decent condition.Pickup / drop-off awful. If theres rain, Avis/Budget requires customers to walk in the rain to terminal to return cars rather than have staff in return lot. Lines in parking lot trying to find a parkingspot(again need staff) and lines in terminal for returns. Enterprise/Alamo/Hertz had on-site staf

Big mistake made good elsewhere.They said they would refund the cab ride from and to the airport with proper receipts, and they did.My plane was late and I am not from where I needed the car. I was told the system was down for maintenance (at 11 pm?) and they would not be able to give me a car - they did not expect the system to come back up for 3 hours. In other words, I had to find my own way to my hotel and back again the next day to pick up the car once the system was up. No company runs maintenance at that hour! The guy behind the desk was, in my opinion, a bit too glib about the situation and offered no help. I was quite disturbed by his attitude! It was not easy to find a cab at that hour.

Not a great experienceI had to wait in line for 40 minutes to get the car and ended up not getting the type of car I paid for. I mentioned this to the agent and she basically told me there was nothing she could do. Upon return, it was not clear at all where to return.

DirtyThe car was dependable and got good mileage, and for the most part was comfortable.The car was really dirty, smelled like smoke, the windshield inside and out looked like it had never been cleaned. The inside of the windshield was smeared. The car smelled like cigarette smoke, then my wife found a cigarette on the back seat.

Horrible experienceNothing at all not the car style I selected!I didn't like the fact the vehicle selected was a special which said any normal size car which had a full size car for the image. Also I didn't knw anything about a $250 deposit! I'm over the age of 25. (29) The gave me a sorry ford focus which not anything close to a normal size car. No room in the back seat looks like a small mini van. So they gave me a compact car.....

Nothing.When we arrived, on time, at 7:00 pm there was no one in the Thrifty booth. A sign referred us to the Avis booth. The Avis clerk told us that Thrifty had given our car to someone else. It would take a while to get another one. One and 45 minutes later we cancelled the reservation by phone and rented from Budget. They had us on the road within 20 minutes. The service person at Budget was personable and very helpful. We got the Budget rental for $200.00 less than the Thrifty rental. Perhaps they need to change their name. They definitely need to learn what the word "service" means. I'll NEVER go to Thrifty again.

Great DealI reserved a car and when I got there they informed me that they were all out of cars. I started getting upset cause it took me an hour to get there and the guy asked if I would be ok with a mini van. I said ok and figured I was gonna end up paying 3 times more. They apologized for the inconvience and discounted the entire thing so I paid the same price for the car. They had really great customer service.I'm not usually a minivan guy (It was really nice though).

The people that I dealt with were all very professional and very nice. This rental was easy and a great experience.When I picked up the car, it didn't have a full tank of gas. The needle was clearly below the full mark. I was headed to Costco in preparation for my drive on the next day and the tank took over five dollars of gas. Gas that day was $1.70/gallon. That is not a full tank in anyone's book. Otherwise everything else was great.

Car was very clean and in great shape.The first car I was given was an SUV that I was not expecting as I preferred a sedan. In addition, this car had flat tire that forced me to return to the rental station after leaving to exchange. I was not happy having to walk back and forth from the lot with my belongings twice in rain.

Ease of return. Close to terminal.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.

I was led to believe the rental place was actually at the Tallahassee airport. It is not. You must call them to come and pick you up. They were fairly efficient, but if you have an early flight and they are not open , you must find your own way back to the airport. Or, if you arrive late, not sure how that would work either. The office space and parking lot is a huge mess. The staff was friendly and polite, but the environment kind of gave me an uneasy feeling.

I paid a premium for the rental because I thought that Hertz was number 1. The "Gold Seal Cleaning" sticker over the drivers door is a gimmick and means nothing. The car was an SUV (Rogue). The storage area in the rear (where my wife generally likes to lay out her clothes) was absolutely filthy and full of dog hair which made it unusable. We rented a passenger car, not a work truck.

They Don't answer the phone in Tallahassee. Our flight was delayed, we called repeatedly to let then know. They ended up giving our car to someone else. Hope we get our money back. We had to make other arrangements to get to our destination.

Top tips for renting a car at Tallahassee Airport

  • The lovely city of Tallahassee is based in Florida, USA, and unlike other major cities in the US, it does not have a public transport system that is as advanced as the more densely populated places such as New York or Chicago. Traditionally, visitors to the big cities can easily get around by hailing a taxicab or making use of the subway. In Tallahassee, your best option for getting around is to acquire a car hire at Tallahassee Airport.
  • The legal age for driving around these parts is 21 years old. Be aware that you must produce your valid ID card or passport when booking and collecting your rental vehicle. If you are between the ages of 21 and 25, agencies that facilitate car hires at Tallahassee Airport are entitled to add an additional charge to your total payment.
  • You will find several toll roads on your travels. The Tallahassee Airport car hire agency policy for this is standard across all of them. They incorporate a toll-by-plate policy, which means that any tolls and service fees incurred while driving will be automatically charged to the same credit card you booked the car out with.
  • Consider the very unpredictable weather conditions in Florida when picking a vehicle for car hire at Tallahassee Airport, from the broad list of safety-approved cars provided on the KAYAK site. It can get very hot during July and August and, for this, we recommend you pick a car with a good air-conditioning system. At other times you will face wet roads from heavy rains, for these conditions make sure your rental car has the right tyre type for slippery roads, and it can't hurt to take out some extra insurance coverage just in case a slippery bumper bashing occurs.
  • Book your rental car at Tallahassee Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
