Note: At the Nashville Airport, the check in is in the parking structure, not at the desks in the terminal. I checked in at Enterprise because the Alamo desk was closed, it was just before 7am, so not surprised. But was quick and easy. Less than 10 minutes and I was in my way. I had my choice of 4 cars. Picked one, a Nissan Rogue, that was a bit dirty, but was my choice. Price was amazing from what I have seen in the past. Return process was easy as well. Pulled up and attendant came and checked my our. 5 minutes and I was walking to terminal. Now, it was the Saturday before Labor Day, so the quickness may not be normal as the airport was pretty quiet.

First of all my sister had rented the car and I was the driver unable to pick up vehicle and Tony was no help and very rude. 2nd the next rear tire kept going low and we had to stop frequently to our air in the tire. We called a lost the tire issue and was told we needed to take it to Firestone and have the tire fixed or have them change the spare. There was no sense in Alamo sending someone out for just a tire. Well if that tire had blown out you would of been doing more than just a tire. I don’t feel it’s my job to fix the tire on a rental care but then again pick was terrible so why would I think custom service would be any better. Do not rent from Alamo ever

Friendly staff and very accommodating. I wasn’t able to get the SUV I wanted but was offered to come back to get a bigger car the next day. My family & I were able to make it work though so no worries.They were really busy and I think they did well with helping all of us and getting us out of there as fast as possible.

I liked the comfort of the car and it's cornering. The staff was very nice and accommodating.I HATE all the assists on the car. It would constantly grab the wheel and forcibly turn it back into the lane if I got too close to the line. I also could not figure out the display panel without reading the manual. Also, the wait time at the Gallatin Pike office was exceedingly long. We had to wait for them to go pick up a car from the lot and it took a long time.

1.9 Horrible21 Jul. 2021
It was a terrible experience! Budget is taking advantage of everyone with the cost of rental cars and the level of service continues to go down. The cost per day was ridiculous $200 per day for a mid-size. After getting my paper work I walked to the car opened the door and the smell was HORRIBLE. Not sure what the smell was but the passenger door had satins from a liquid or something covering the door panel. Quite obvious the vehicle had not been cleaned and prepared from the last user. So go wait in line and get another car and walk out to it and the exterior of the car was COVERED in ANTS. No other car to choose from so they offered to spray them off. After a 1 hour drive the ant were still crawling on the exterior. I guess the ants were free or included with the $200 a day charge. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
3.9 Mediocre18 Jul. 2021
We contacted Budget to let them know we were going to be later than anticipated. They changed our reservation pretty easily. However, when we got stuck in traffic on the way back home and were 46 mins late (16 mins past the grace period), they charged us $100 for an extra hour! 😳 That's terrible.
1.9 Horrible18 Jul. 2021
The customer service line is atrocious. They scheduled my pick up for a time after the site had closed. I spent $50 on Lyft fares to get there and back to my hotel (sans car, no less). First service rep on the phone kept repeating the time of my reservation like some broken AI and then hung up on me when she simply didn’t seem able to acknowledge their screw up. In the end I had to reserve the car pickup for the next morning. Counter people were great, but their customer service line seems incredibly incompetent.

Upon arrival, they did not accept our reservation through Kayak because the person on the reservation was not present. We tried MULTIPLE times to adjust the reservation to reflect the change in driver through kayak. Kayak was never available to do so. Because of kayaks lack of adequate costumer service, Thrifty made us make a different reservation. They charged us an OBSENE price for an average car. I understand Thriftys policy. Our frustration is with kayak and their horrible customer service.

Car was ok1. Arrived Friday evening. There was a 1 hour wait in line to get a car. Thrifty shares space in the garage with Hertz et al and there was just one man behind the counter. Unbelievably bad service. Waited longer in line than the drive to Clarksville. 2. Upon return, I didn't have time to fuel the car. Knew it would be costly, but it didn't help that they lied on the form and said they had to put 18 gallons in it. The gas level was at half. Do Kia's really have 36 gallon tanks?

Check out process was slow. Too much pressure sales tactics to purchase pre paid fuel and extra insurance. Car was good except that it had a low tire which was corrected at a local gas station. The checkin process was unclear as there was no attendant. No signage about the key drop box. The cost was also high for basically a one day rental. The larger companies are more efficient but we where grateful that they had cars available.

2.0 Mediocre25 Jan. 2021
The car itself was nice, clean and good quality.The day after we ordered the car through Priceline (nonrefundable), our flight changed to 1041pm arrival. We had ordered for 8pm pickup. I tried for weeks and weeks to contact the Nashville Payless desk to ask about a late pickup. There was never any answer. The phone system was apparently out of service, as it always went to a fast busy signal. We tried to work with Priceline for help, and we also called the Payless national customer service number, but neither were any help. All they could tell me was to call the local desk and nobody would offer to try to contact them directly for me due to the phone issue. The best I could get was that I could come back the next day and pick up my car at 7am when they opened again. Well, when I arrived at the Nashville airport at 1041pm, I tried to go to the desk just to see if anyone was there. There was not. I went up to the car lot and there were three floors with various rental brands, none of which were marked for Payless. There was no signage at all as to where to go for Payless cars. I went to one of the floors and asked one of the other companies as was told that he was pretty sure the Payless guys left for the night, so I took an Uber to the hotel and another Uber back in the morning at 7am. I went to the desk again, and nobody was at the desk. I went back out to the parking lot and talked to a person from another company and he said yes he could help me for Payless cars. Again, no signage, just randomly asking someone and he luckily said he could help me. I told him about the experience the night before and he implied that if I would have come to this floor last night, there would have been someone here to help me. I was very, very frustrated because I could have saved approximately $50 on Uber charges. Then, when trying to return my car at the Atlanta airport, we followed the signs to the Payless lot, where again, nobody was present. I went to another desk and asked where to return Payless cars, and they said Avis lot. We ended up have to go around the loop 3 times until we figured out how to get to the Avis lot and finally yes someone there could accept the return of the car. It was unbelievably difficult and frustrating.

1.9 Horrible29 Jul. 2021
When we went to pick up our reserved vehicle we were told “sorry we have no cars”. Basically told to take our chances at the airport to see if another car company has a car for us. We did eventually get a car (from Avis at the airport) and an hour into our drive the flat tire light came on. Turns out they gave us a car with a nail in the tire (I hadn’t noticed a sticker on the key chain that said “tire nail”). So we had to lose more time from our vacation to trade the car in (in another city) where the Avis rep was rude and downgraded us from the car we were given. They also charged me more than my quotes price, so now I’ll have to call and hash that out with them. I will never rent from Avis/Budget again

Top tips for hiring a car in Nashville

  • Get the most out of your trip to Nashville and reach ultimate flexibility by opting for a hire car upon your arrival. Nashville city, the lake, and the wildlife area located 32 miles from Nashville invite visitors to come explore. Whether with your family or on another kind of trip, a hire car will provide the opportunity to explore everything at your pace and time, especially as the public transport system is not ideal in Nashville.
  • Nashville Airport is located about 10 miles from Nashville’s center and picking up the hire car there allows travelers to start their journey to Nashville quickly and easily. The international airport boasts its own car hire facilities, which are easily accessible from all terminals and include agencies like Enterprise, Thrifty, and Alamo.
  • Nashville drivers are not known for being the most patient, so driving defensively is a good idea. Turn signals are often not used before changing lanes and drivers often go above or way below the given speed limit -- but don’t be tempted to do the same. Drivers are also known for not turning on their headlights at night, so drive attentively and keep an eye out for other vehicles.
  • As in most cities, driving during rush hour is also not advisable in Nashville. Avoid times in the morning between 7 and 9 AM and 4 to 6 PM in the evenings, as congestions and traffic jams will clog up the streets. Also bear in mind that snow storms can sometimes occur and ice up the roads, and it is advisable to refrain from driving if you’re not used to such weather conditions, or at least ensure the hire car is equipped appropriately.
