We appreciated that we were able to drop off the vehicle at a different location than we originally intended.
10.0 Excellent2021 Aug 29
The vehicle had a couple of scratches, and we thought the rental clerk should have gone out and checked the vehicle with the customer. However, as long as we weren’t charged with the scratch or minor dents, we weren’t worried about it. The vehicle was clean, service was great and the clerk was friendly. Positive service.

The staff was very nice and the car was perfect for my meedsWell, my original rental time was at 9, so I went to pick it up at 9, but they didn’t have the car yet.... so that was frustrating but luckily I wasn’t too stressed about time

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

Traveling and I was unaware that I needed my credit card, so I was denied a rental car at the airport. I was stranded in the middle of an unknown city until a stranger assisted me. We should be informed what your requirements are before our arrival!

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.

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.

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).

Not availableI 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.

Good cust svc at enterpriseI 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.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.

Bait and switchContrary 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.

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.

1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 03
I was allowed to book a vehicle through Kayak that never existed and for a time frame when this particular Hertz office is closing. Not only did I not receive a car, I was told that Kayak should never have allowed me to book a car at this office closing time (Sat. 12:00 pm), and that Kayak has no vision into their inventory! I was referred to another Hertz location that said they could do nothing for me since they didn't honor the reservation from another location, and they also didn't have any inventory to rent at the time. Ridiculous! I will never rent from Kayak or Hertz again.
3.9 Mediocre2021 Jul 27
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.

Car rental insurance in Tallahassee

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Tallahassee car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Tallahassee.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Tallahassee car 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 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Tallahassee are around 46% cheaper than other car types, on average
