I waited for over 2 hours for my vehicle at the airport and then waited another 30 minutes in the garage only to find out literally the only vehicle they had was a minivan and not the truck I needed. 3 other people went after me and picked up other vehicles but for some reason they singled me out and literally just ignored me while I waited patiently. The staff were not clear in what the problem was nor was there any sort of management or sense of urgency. I want a refund for wasting my time, giving me a terrible large oversized vehicle for me just one person, for my one vacation I take a year, and doing nothing to treat me as a customer or person. They could have easily given me a small car or suv but said no when asked.. minivan only. They also messed up on the booking and added a day before I even picked it up.

Customer service at desk in PNS airport was kind enough to offer me a free upgrade. When we opened the car door, it smelt like a Vegas casino in 1970! It was obviously a smokers car, so we asked for another car (same size as originally booked), and it was brought to us within 10 minutes, with profuse apologies. Pricing was high, but the connivence of on airport pick up, and overall friendliness of reps was v nice. Would rent from Budget in PNS again.

Pros:

Car itself was great, clean, new, and the vehicle we reserved was the one we received.

Cons:

Pickup was extremely slow. It was understaffed both at the desk and in the lot. It took over an hour to complete and that was with our reservation already done days before online. We paid an exorbitant price for the car. Same car was cheaper at other airports.

Pros:

The clerk at the desk was unfriendly and acted annoyed with us until he finally finished and sent us on our way. We got to airport and saw the Budget sign. Before we could get to the space, he slapped the counter 4 or 5 times and said “here!” We kind of laughed, embarrassed. He said, “didn’t you read the sign? It’s for Avis AND Budget. Actually, no we didn’t have the chance. I had forgotten my reading glasses and so my daughter (30 years old) was getting ready to check the boxes for me on the screen. We were scolded, again, with him telling me that had to check the boxes myself. I did, and it was a touch screen, but I was scolded for not using the stylus. As My daughter was skimming and reading the contract for me, he told me I didn’t have to read the contract because he would tell me what was in it. That’s not good enough. I wanted to decide for myself if I had questions about the contract. The car was clean and nice. The woman who gave me the keys when I went to get my car was nice. The person I returned the car to was courteous.

Cons:

The clerk, as stated above, needs a course in courtesy.

My flight changed so I got there earlier. They didn't have the car I'd asked for, so had to pay a lot of upgrades, including an extra day because I was 2 hours early. Check in was very slow because salesman spent time trying to upgrade everyone in line. Other than that they were perfect

We booked an SUV online but were told they didn’t have any available. In fact they didn’t have any cars at all. We had to wait about 3 hours (there were several other who we’re waiting as well) for a car to be returned and cleaned. This put us off schedule and we missed our appointment.

Nov. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

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!

Pros:

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.

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.

Top tips for renting a car at Pensacola airport

  • Whether you’re flying into Pensacola International Airport (PNS) for business or adventure, you’ll want to explore the Gulf Coast in style. Luckily, you can rent a car right from the airport. Car rental at Pensacola Airport should be at the top of your to-do list if you want to explore the vibrant Pensacola Bay, sugar-white beaches, and historic sites your way. From luxury cars to compact models, you can always find something to match your vacation style through the KAYAK website.
  • You’ll find car rentals next to the baggage claim section right in front of the terminal building. Main offices are situated at 2430 Airport Blvd. When the time comes to fly back home, return the vehicle to the same place you found it. Use navigation features or follow the signs reading ‘rental car return’ on the way to the airport. Drive into the car lot at the baggage claim area, take your luggage, and leave the keys at the rental desk. You might need to record the fuel level and mileage according to the agreement. It should be mailed to you shortly afterward.
  • Many residents prefer to go to downtown Pensacola and nearby beaches by foot, so you can expect relatively heavier pedestrian traffic. Watch out for people crossing the roads or marine life nesting on the beach parking. Pensacola Airport car rental lets you relax in your seat and eliminates the hurdle of waiting in line for public means of transport. During the peak hours, in the morning and evening, make a point of leaving early so you can make it to your destination in good time.
  • During the rental period, you’ll be responsible for all toll payments. Certain rental companies provide an optional e-toll service that allows you to drive through tolled bridges, highways, and lanes. Rental vehicles are specially equipped to process tolls electronically. All you have to do is agree with the rental supplier on how to access this program. You might have to share your credit card information to process the related fees.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Pensacola airport for C$ 50 or less
  • Book your rental car at Pensacola airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
