6.4 Good14 Feb. 2020
Pros: People were mostly friendlyCons: Car broke down then we were downgraded to a smaller vehicle.
2.0 Mediocre1 Jan. 2020
Cons: Pick-up was scheduled for 3 p.m. on Christmas Eve. We arrived at the downtown Tampa facility at around 3:50 due to a flight delay only to find the office closed, with s note on the door that it would reopen on 12/26. Fortunately, we were staying with family on 12/24 and 12/25 so didn’t need the car. However, when I showed up at 8 a.m. on 12/26 to pick up the car for a trip to Fort Myers, I was told that there were no cars available at any Alamo facility in the Tampa metro area. The manager snd staff made no efforts to help, Fortunately, I was able to find a car at Hertz, albeit at 2.5x the rate I’d reserved at Alamo. Terrible experience.
10.0 Excellent22 Jul. 2019

4.0 Okay12 Apr. 2021
Pros: With some hesitation my issue was resolved.Cons: My rental car smelled of marijuana and after waiting for an hour I asked for a discount instead of waiting even longer for them to get another car in. After leaving and having the car closed up for an hour, the smell was unbearable. I was not comfortable driving my children around in that vehicle. After several phone calls, they were able to replace my vehicle. I was very disappointed that I lost almost a day of my vacation.
2.0 Mediocre11 Apr. 2021
Cons: The branch was not open when we were scheduled to pick up the car. The branch was closed when we returned the car.
10.0 Excellent7 Apr. 2021
Pros: Yes, The staff was helpful under difficult circumstances with high rental capacityCons: I had to wait about 1 hour for a car due to spring break.
10.0 Excellent5 Apr. 2021
Pros: Staff were great, very fast check out process and check in.Cons: Nothing.
4.0 Okay3 Apr. 2021
Cons: The car could have been cleaned better. Picked it up Friday afternoon and it smelt so bad of pot that the windows had to be down driving it and had to buy air fresheners an let the car sit for few days before we could drive it. Tried to get it traded out but had no replacements so we were told there was nothing that could be done.
8.0 Excellent1 Apr. 2021
Pros: Car seemed like smoke. Caused everyone to cough.Cons: Cleaning.
2.0 Mediocre30 Mar. 2021
Pros: Staff were friendly and politeCons: I rented a full size and they cave me a economy. The car felt unsafe as it would shake while driving on the highway. They gave a car with half full gas tank instead of full tank trying to get gas money out of the customer. There is no way to return right at half full point. I returned with 3/4 full and spent money out of my own pocket.
2.0 Mediocre25 Mar. 2021
Pros: The day before we left they called to inform us that they didn't have a car for us anymore, and we were number 1 on the waiting list.Cons: They never called us to let us know they had the car promised us previously. We ended-up paying twice as much through a different rental company.
6.0 Good23 Mar. 2021
Pros: The expedition was the right size. Easy to drive.Cons: The vehicle was not ready at agreed upon time. Had to wait almost an hour for workers to finish cleaning it. Still was not as clean as I thought it should be. Sand from beach still in it. Outside did not look freshly washed. Floor mat was missing.
4.0 Okay23 Mar. 2021
Cons: A shuttle to and from the airport

Pros: It was goodCons: Ok
2.0 Mediocre12 Apr. 2021
Cons: Kayak allowed me to book a car at closing. We were delayed and so the car wasn’t available and was rented to someone else the next day. Kayak should at least warn if you are booking a time that is the same as the store closing!
8.0 Excellent11 Apr. 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly. Vehicle was per description and clean. Solid options for prepaid gas.Cons: Long line at check-in, though it moved pretty quickly.
2.0 Mediocre11 Apr. 2021
Pros: Very fucking rude!!!Cons: They said you lie that you reserve cars through them I had to find a rental car after I landed and took a 40 cab to the location!! How about a refund?
2.0 Mediocre8 Apr. 2021
Cons: I stood in line for more than an hour to check in. Budget is terrible.
4.0 Okay1 Apr. 2021
Pros: Once at the desk, the employee was helpful and friendly.Cons: There were two people working the Budget/Avis desk at the Tampa airport. There 25-30 people in line ahead of me. Took us over an hour to get up to the counter, even with having previously reserved a car.
10.0 Excellent29 Mar. 2021
Pros: Clean, easy, fast.
8.0 Excellent28 Mar. 2021
Cons: Notified day before rental to pick up vehicle at airport instead because the airport site did not deliver the vehicle to the satellite location. When trying to pick up was told cost would be over an additional $1000.00 and would have to bring back vehicle two days early. ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE!!! After much debate, original booking location arranged to get the vehicle delivered and honored original booking details.
2.0 Mediocre26 Mar. 2021
Pros: They had a car when it was difficult to find a car during spring break.Cons: The car reeked of smoke and had stains all over the seats. When I requested to drop the car off early they threatened to charge me an extra $100. I understand the policy but I flew in to manage my father's last days and when I wanted to fly out the customer service refused to work with me. I had no way of knowing when I would be leaving and I simply asked for a bit of understanding and they refused to work with me. I will never rent from Budget/Avis again.
4.0 Okay24 Mar. 2021
Cons: The car was not what I reserved and had minor damage all over.

10.0 Excellent9 Apr. 2021
Pros: Easy drop off
10.0 Excellent9 Apr. 2021
Pros: Very nice and clean car. Drop off went smoothly.Cons: The pick up counter was slammed the day we arrived. We had a long wait. They know ahead who is renting and pick up times and flights, they should have been ready and able to surge. They only had two staff checking people in and we spent more than 30 minutes waiting in line.

8.0 Excellent7 Apr. 2021

10.0 Excellent4 Apr. 2021
Pros: very easy. car provided was better than the size requestedCons: went to fill up gas tank as we were returning the car & the gas cap said "diesel". this was our first time adding gas this trip & we knew we had used half a tank. however the tank would not accept diesel & it spilled out on the tire & my feet. the station attendant was flustrated but also saw the writing on the cap so advised us not to add "regular". we explained our situation when we returned the half empty car & the check-in person was very empathetic; she even took a photo of the gas cap. i hope they straightened that out before the next person has the same experience. wrong gas cap?
2.0 Mediocre3 Apr. 2021
Pros: I was unable to pick up the rental car because the driver had to stay home with a Covid infection. I was also unable to change drivers due to going through a second partyCons: I was unable to get any assistance from Priceline or Sixt when the driver had to stay home because he was sick. Priceline said SIXT had to deal with it and SIXT said Priceline had to deal with it. So we took an Uber which turned out cheaper and way easier!
2.0 Mediocre3 Apr. 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Having the rental agency be open when our flight was late. They closed and we had to go get a taxi ride to our hotel for $120 extra cost plus go back the next day for another $120 taxi ride. Pick and drop times the agency was closed for business.

Pros: Fast service at pick up and drop offCons: The front speaker was blow and made an annoying sound the entire time we were driving the car. And when we told them there was nothing said other than okay.
4.0 Okay14 Mar. 2021
Cons: Passenger air bag turned off with my wife in that seat. We drove many miles very scary nervousness. Check engine light came on minutes from returning it.
6.0 Good14 Mar. 2021
Pros: Great car and experience.Cons: Confusing pickup process. They charged us for 12 gallons of fuel after we just filled up! Find another company if you can.
8.0 Excellent4 Mar. 2021
Cons: Our vehicle was double booked, 2 different families were assigned to the same car. Was told we were given an upgrade when we were actually given the car we requested.
10.0 Excellent1 Mar. 2021

4.0 Okay18 Feb. 2021
Cons: The compact suv is smaller than a sedan. The description of the car is way off forcing you to upgrade once you get there.
4.0 Okay16 Feb. 2021
Pros: I waited in line for an hour at the Tampa airport. Every other company had no line. We received our agreement with very basic/vague directions to retrieve our car. It had been smoked in. I am done with Thrifty.Cons: Everything.
2.0 Mediocre16 Feb. 2021
Pros: Car was fine once we got itCons: Way overpriced, no value for money spent. TPA rental car a complete mess. Thrifty shares counter with Hertz and Dollar. Only 2 people on staff to handle multiple arrivals at 10p. Wait was 30mins in line to get processed and then another 20mins to get a car at the garage. Didn’t need to waste an hour after a long flight and crying kids. Return was no better, no staff at return just a sign to leave keys in car. Would have been more tolerable had I not paid $640 for a 4 day rental. Like I said zero value for what I paid
10.0 Excellent2 Feb. 2021
Pros: Staff was greatCons: Car actually was dirty and trash from previous rental person was left under seats and on floor

Cons: Waited over an hour to pick up the vehicle. Only had infini vehicles left. Way overpriced and nothing one person working at Tampa. Another finally came over to help. . Wheels were terrible and for what we paid it should have been very smooth it was not. Drop off was outrageous.
10.0 Excellent4 Apr. 2021
Pros: staff was excellent, no ridiculous pressure as I have experienced in the past with car rental companies to upgrade, use their fuel option and buy their insurance plan. Rental process was quick and flawless.Cons: there were absolutely no problems.
10.0 Excellent1 Apr. 2021
Pros: Vehicle size we needed was available, the entire process was quick and easy, everyone was very helpful and friendlyCons: Nothing, it was great! When we were assigned our vehicle, we went to the stall to pick it up, but found out that the vehicle we were assigned was also assigned to someone else (Hertz, Thrifty and Dollar all share a system) just a fluke. The employees were extremely helpful and found us another vehicle quickly and it all worked out perfectly!

There are families like a standing room for an hour at night and no one was communicating regarding the timing or what was happening to remedy the issue.

2.0 Mediocre13 Apr. 2021
Pros: NothingCons: So, I made this deal through Kayak, with pickup scheduled for noon Saturday. The app didn't bother to tell me the location closed at noon Saturday. I arrived right at noon, the place was closed. It's spring break in Florida, no cars available from any vendor. I'm on a business trip. Fortunately I was able to take the family car, but my wife was stuck without a car to get to her chemo infusion.
2.0 Mediocre12 Apr. 2021
Pros: NothingCons: They could have not overbooked by 15 cars and given me a car and not been so rude about it with no options but to wait there for 6 hours waiting for a car to come in
4.0 Okay11 Apr. 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly.Cons: I could have revived the car we paid for which we did not. The car also was filled by a smoker before we rented it so it smelled terrible. It was not dis-infected at all before we rented. The wait for the car when we arrived to Tampa was very long. The car was filthy inside and out.
4.0 Okay11 Apr. 2021
Pros: Appreciate the size of the vehicle (we ended up getting a van, although we rented a Nissan Path Finder)Cons: We thought we rented from the airport, and the location did not offer any type of transportation to and from the airport. We ended up spending over $100 in Uber fees. The location itself is also very dirty. We had an early flight and they offered no drop key. They don't open until 9:00 am which is not convenient for early travelers if they don't have drop off service.
2.0 Mediocre11 Apr. 2021
Cons: The employees did not show up to work... when went back to the airport per hertz customer service rep and spoke to the hertz counter there, the manager Shu, told me oh well nothing I can do... went back to the off airport next morning it wa sto be open until 12 and at 10 there was still no agent at the counter... hertz did nothing to help ... will never book through hertz in future , would rather walk
2.0 Mediocre11 Apr. 2021
Pros: Awful experience. Nothing.Cons: Everything. I rented a 7 passenger SUV and they didn’t haven any when I got there so they gave me a minivan. The key FOB didn’t work so I couldn’t lock or unlock the doors. The back windshield wiper was broken so I couldn’t clean the back windshield and when I got in the van there were old meat wrappers in the middle console. It was a horrible experience for my family vacation.

Pros: One staff member was nice. However, the two other people working were slow and lazy. Pick up and drop off took way longer than it should have, because the two men working the office did not care about their customers at all. The vehicle I rented was out of line and vibrated when going over 50 MPH. there were many rattling noise through the vehicle.

4.0 Okay1 Apr. 2021
Pros: My Representative was pleasant.Cons: Only reason I ended up at ACE is because they were the only one that had a car for the time period I needed a car. They the reps are super hard sell on all the up charges when just the base rental fee was high to begin with. Not sure I would call a Nissan Versa a mid-sized car, but that was the 'similar' sized car that I had to take. Would be the last choice again.
8.0 Excellent13 Mar. 2021
Cons: I feel like the customer service person kept adding on extra and by the time I was done my bill was over $500 and when I booked it was around $250. She tried to add insurance until I caught that. Then told me there were tolls everywhere so then added on for tolls. I didn’t hit one toll booth. I just get money money back for tolls because it’s a scams. You would b able to tell if I hit a toll. I will not use this service only because the customer service was sneaky. I don’t like that and the toll booth is a scam.

2.0 Mediocre25 Jan. 2021
Cons: They could have had a car for me. Used kayak booking site and it does not allow you to adjust the time of rental pickup. Got there at 10a and kayak set our pickup for 12p. I was told they didn’t have a car in the size I ordered. They did have a larger car for 3x the price I agreed to.
2.0 Mediocre30 Dec. 2020
Pros: Nothing I couldn’t get the car. Had to pick one up at a competitor.Cons: Required utility bill to rent and didn’t know until I got there. First time I’ve ever heard of such a thing. Then they limited mileage and said I couldn’t leave the state. Non of which was disclosed until I got there.

2.8 Mediocre14 Nov. 2020
Pros: Checkout guy was nice and easyCons: Provided compact suv instead of midsize. I tried to get other car they offered me to wait another 30-40 min. Called customer service next day and the guy was rude and combative, keep saying dude its midsize per their grade, we are not dealers. even the Wiki and google says its compact. It was mitsubishi outlander SPORT. Our Friends, who we travelled with were at other rental, they were upgraded because they didn’t have the car they reserved. I was not asking for upgrade I was asking for the car I paid for. Not happy. Decided to let it go and enjoy vacation. Do not recommend this particular location. Not sure about ace in general but will avoid them in the future. Never had this issue with other rentals.

Cons: We had reserved a midsize suv and ended up with a choice between a full.size suv which my husband did not want or a compact.

Cons: The pick up experience in the TPA rental center was terrible. It took 2 hours to get into the car. after that things were ok. There were only 2 associates working with the line that was at least 50 people long. I was lucky to get an associate who knew what she was doing. The other - not so much.... It is doubtful that the savings by renting with FOX make the experience worthwhile. Mark P - Grand Rapids MI

8.0 Excellent5 Apr. 2021
Pros: Had a $20 per day charge for being under 25 but aside from that the rental was decent and everything went well.Cons: Would have appreciated a more upfront statement when signing up to rent this car indicating the $20 per day for being under 25. It basically doubled my daily car rental cost and was a complete surprise since I had not been prepared for that when making the reservation.
2.0 Mediocre4 Apr. 2021
Pros: Had a reliable car.Cons: Didn’t like the attempted up sale on the Sun pass. Didn’t have an SUV ready like I reserved. The garage attendant was smoking marijuana.

Pros: Once we actually got to a staff member (after waiting in line for over an hour because the Payless, Avis, and Budget counters were all combined), he was very polite and helpful. The car was new and it was very nice. Drop off was an ease.Cons: A warning at least would have been nice about the lack of staffing or the possible extended wait times. The fact that I set a pick up time and expected to go to the counter to get my car, but waited in line for over an hour instead was frustrating to say the least. I have appreciated an offered substantial upgrade or refund for the inconvenience.

Pros: The staff member in Tampa was terrific. We wanted to rent a Jeep Cherokee, and he went out of his way to ensure we got one. Thanks!Cons: The car was overall very clean, but there was a bit of sand in the back seat of the vehicle. I suppose that's to be expected since it was Florida and beach season. At any rate, it didn't bother us in the slightest and the experience was great.

2.0 Mediocre5 Apr. 2021
Pros: We thought we had a reservation for the evening when we arrived. We received an email that said if we didn’t pick the car up by noon we would lose it. We emailed customer service to see if they could assist us. The responses were short and stated reasons why it was our fault with no effort to help us with a rental.Cons: A reminder email to confirm our reservation and customer service that tried to go above and beyond vs the experience we had.
2.0 Mediocre27 Mar. 2021
Pros: Nothing I was totally ripped off o got there and they said that because I wasn’t there by 12 noon my reservation was cancelled my car rental went from $246 to $611 and I was also told that there were tolls to where I was going I never went through a toll in all 6 days. The place was a SCAM!Cons: Maybe if your going to cancel someone’s reservation give them a phone call and also honor the original price I paid instead of nickel and dimming me.

4.0 Okay22 Feb. 2021
Pros: Nothing.Cons: Don't attempt to reserve a car with this company online unless you will be picking it up during "business hours." This is NOT shown anywhere during the reservation process on Kayak, but you'll see it in the confirmation email you get after booking. My flight was arriving later at night when Executive Car Rental was already closed. I called ahead to see if I could make other arrangements to pick it up after hours and they said no. I asked if I could pick it up the next morning when they were open again and they refused, even when I said I would pay for the extra day of reservation when they were closed. I asked if I could modify my reservation to just pick the car up the next morning and they said they were "sold out." Basically, they wanted to rent the car I had already reserved to someone else at a much higher price (I saw the prices increase by $100-200 for the days I had already booked). Lousy company - book earlier with a bigger chain to avoid the hassle and stress.
10.0 Excellent6 Feb. 2021
Pros: The staff was great! I received a call the day of telling me how to find their rental slot once at the airport (which was a little confusing if you've never been there) and so was helpful. They were very pleasant and did everything possible to help us in the transaction.Cons: We purchased our auto insurance through Kayak only to be told a the counter that they did not accept their insurance and had to use theirs. Theirs was more expensive and then we had to call and cancel the insurance we had previously purchased.
8.0 Excellent1 Jan. 2021
Pros: The gentleman at the Executive counter was very helpful and patient. He also was willing to listen to my concerns. He also gave us an upgrade. Great price!Cons: We booked the car through Priceline. We received a great deal for a compact car. Our flight got changed to a later time and we were going to pick up the car 2 hours later. The car rental home office told us they could not guarantee the car for two hours later and there might be a possibility we would have to re-book another car at a higher price when we arrived. I was willing to pay for the rental ahead of time and they said it could not be done. Very confusing and annoying.

2.0 Mediocre3 Apr. 2021
Pros: The location called one hour before the car was to be picked up an canceled the reservation. Left a voicemail. No attempt to find at another location, give a voucher for another trip. I called back a couple times and eventually gave up and decided to enjoy my vacation. Ride shares were scarce and it was extremely inconvenient. First night we didn’t have food. Very stressful experience.Cons: Having a car and fulfilling the order.
6.0 Good20 Mar. 2021
Cons: Waited on line too too long
8.0 Excellent3 Nov. 2020
Pros: Easy to reserve and pickupCons: There was no damage declaration form and I was concerned because the car had a moderately large sized dent on the front pillar over the driver door when we picked it up. There were no false charges or anything, just made me a little worried.
6.0 Good17 Jul. 2020
Pros: The staff was nice, the car was good. The turn in was great.Cons: The pick-up was very slow, the car I reserved was not available, it took an excessive amount of time to place me into a vehicle that would work, but the internal space available and the gas mileage were considerably worse than what I requested. The car was clean, but not fully cleared.
2.0 Mediocre28 Apr. 2020
Pros: The price was great for the 1st few days.Cons: Would have been nice to know up front that it costs an extra $10 to extend your rental agreement...would have been nice to know upfront it costs an extra $10 to change drop off location. It would have been critical to know my rental price would jump from $17 per day to $50 per day because I had to extend my rental agreement due to my car not being repaired yet. I am extremely dissatisfied.

Cons: The agreement was not honored, I had to find another company.
9.2 Excellent28 Jan. 2020

Pros: the cancel my reservation when I was on the way to pick it upCons: They should not let you reserve when the company has no cars available

Cons: The pick up time was nearly an hour. I had to wait for the attendant to return to the store and unlock the door. The process took forever. Then she had to go somewhere and het the car and wash it and bring it around which took another 30 minutes.

Not a good experiencePros: NoneCons: In the website it is saying that you rent the car and drop it at the airport which is not true.We need to wait for a shuttle 30 min to take us to the place they have the car and there it took almost an hour till we finded a nice clean car.

7.2 Good19 Sep. 2016
Pros: Office Staff was friendly. Car was in good condition that I received.Cons: It's a long procedure to get the car. If there had been any kind of line it could've taken hours. Even in drop off. There's no need for a paper receipt if you're emailed it as well. The bus for the airport couldn't be bothered to wait for me to drop the keys. The guys who maintain cars and drive shuttle were not friendly. We seemed to be a bother.
4.8 Okay7 Sep. 2016
Long wait. Way to far drop off and pick up. ReservPros: Car was ok. But lot of scratched outside. Had to document carefully myself so that don't get charged.Cons: Reservation got cancelled due took showing up little bit later than 2 hours. Long wait to get there car. Way far pick up and drop off location. Leaves adequate times for drop off.
5.2 Okay6 Sep. 2016
Cons: The checking agent was rude and appeared very unhelpful. we waited for over 20 minutes because no one was at the office at 6 am. There was quite obvious damage to the car door which was not logged previously by the company- if we weren't thorough, we could have missed it in the dark and be liable.
8.4 Excellent21 Aug. 2016

Rip OffPros: The price was right going in. But renter beware! The will find a way to gouge you!Cons: I picked the car up at 3am in a poorly lit parking lot. Afterward u noticed some pre-existing damage on the car. After several 20 minute dropped calls u spoke with the manager Sam. He interrupted me as I was explaining the damage on the car. No problem! Just let them know when you return the car! Complete lie! I go to return the car. I explained the situation. The guys first response: Sam is not here! Fill out this accident report! When I told him I was going to write a poor review he just laughed! Eventually Sam came over and said I signed off on the car so therefore I was responsible! I intend to pursue this through the media!

New rental company experiencePros: Picked up at the airport in one of the rental cars instead of a shuttle bus, and got to talk to the driver about the company and procedure while going from the airport to the rental location nearby. I hadn't done an all electronic type of rental before. They made it easy. Once you got the app loaded it was easy enough. Nice clean new Audi A4. Also a drop off at the airport, upon return, in the car that you had rented, so you don't have to move your bags or ride in a bus back to the airport. Very convenient to get dropped right at the curb by your airline departure location. Great experience. Helpful people from end to end. I'd use them again.Cons: Loading the app on my iphone was a bit of a pain. I couldn't get the pages on the app to scroll correctly so I could fill out the forms. I ultimately had to fill in the needed information to sign up via my laptop. Once I got through that it was easy. And with the app loaded I won't have to go through that again.

6.0 Good28 Nov. 2018
Cons: Car was supposed to be at airport in Tampa. Find out some how my reservation was for Tampa 5 miles away. Had to take a taxi from airport to car rental place 10 mins away. And wanted to charge us 160$ at airport when we booked for 40$. And this car is not in good running condition.

Very easy process, very expensive fee for gasPros: The drop off process was fast.Cons: I felt like I was rushed out of my car and could have left personal belongings behind easily. Also, the gas fee is overly expensive and I was charged $60 for a tank when the current gas prices would have allowed for a $40 fill up.

Mixed experiencePros: Loved the car I was rented. Newer model. Very clean.Cons: Phone number to National did not work so unable to stay in touch when I needed to talk to someone in the office. Car not ready when I arrived (person helping me went and cleaned it himself, so that was helpful), printer not working so no paperwork to take with me. I put in TPA for airport and was given an offsite location. I thought I was renting from airport and went there first. Big disruption to my plans. Ultimately my fault for not paying attention to the address, but also very confusing process that I was clear I wanted airport.

2.0 Mediocre7 Apr. 2021
Pros: Nothing: They left us stranded at airport.Cons: We called before our flight left because we were worried about our late arrival, 9:30 PM. They said the shuttle would be there until 10 PM and they had our name and said there were three others coming in at that time. We arrived at the shuttle area around 9:50. No Shuttle. They would not answer the phone. At 10 PM the phone went right to voice mail. The officer at the sight said at 9:30 they crowed in a group not even promising a car when they arrived at the off-site lot. We had to rent at double the price.
6.0 Good5 Apr. 2021
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful, the car was in good condition.Cons: This agency is not at the airport. We had to wait for a shuttle to pick us up. We also had to take a Lyft to the airport on our return because the agency wasn’t open early enough. They also didn’t have our car ready when we arrived so we had to wait about 45 minutes.
2.0 Mediocre3 Apr. 2021
Cons: This is the only car rental place where you need to show proof of insurance. Most people don’t carry insurance cards with them. The car we got had dents all over it. It was older so we didn’t have the apple car play and it had crank type windows. We were going to have to pay an $75 for my wife to be a driver for it. Most companies do not charge extra for a spouse to be a driver. In front of the building there is a raised step that’s not marked. My wife tripped and fell and ended up cut and bruised. The lady waiting on us was argumentative. Oh and the car smelled like marijuana on the inside. We will never use Easirent again.
4.0 Okay2 Apr. 2021
Pros: The car was clean inside, but a mess outside. It was an were model and ran well mechanically. Prices were still high, but much more reasonable than other companies quotes at the time.Cons: The outside had not been cleaned and had splash marks along the bottom and federa as well as the windshield. The rear quarter panel had a rub mark on it from a collision and it was misaligned with the rest of the body. The turn signal was cracked and had been repaired with epoxy. The wait to get our car was ridiculously long. There were 2 agents working and a room full of people to be helped. They did everything including bring the cars around front of the building. It slowed things down. One computer was not working well, and had to be restarted twice, but even that didn’t fix the issue. So I had to ask the agent to switch computers to get us processed. I understand that we were there during a busy time, because that is the only reason I booked with them in the first place; there were no cars available at the airport, or in the location we were staying.
2.0 Mediocre1 Apr. 2021
Pros: Shuttle driver was nice and professional.Cons: Vastly understaffed. Clerks unprofessional. Tried to demand we purchase their insurance then demanded to see our insurance policy. Cars not properly serviced. Gave us a compact even though we paid for a full size and said “you are welcome to wait for a full size but it could take a few hours for one to come in.” Car smelled like smoke even though I asked for a nonsmoking car. I could go on.

Top tips for hiring a car in Tampa

  • For travelers planning on renting a car during their time in Tampa, it is as simple as hopping onto the SkyConnect train after your flight to Tampa International Airport lands. The SkyConnect train can be found in the main terminal building and connects the airport to the hire Car Center and the Economy Parking Lot.
  • Travelers new to Florida should be extra careful when driving in the rain, especially during the later summer months. Storms can appear out of nowhere and can quickly flood the streets with water, making them dangerous for inexperienced drivers. The flooding will pass quickly, so just be sure to keep an eye on the weather.
  • Rush hour in Tampa lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and picks back up again from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. During rush hour, Hillsborough Ave and many of the I-275 exits can become very backed up so it pays to time your trip accordingly. Much of the historic downtown is made up of smaller streets that can grind to a halt during rush hour as well.
  • One of the major advantages to renting a car in Tampa is the easy access to all of its wonderful nearby beaches and state parks. For instance, Clearwater Beach, Fort De Soto Park, and Caladesi Island State Park are all readily accessed by car, but are extremely laborious to reach via public transportation. Chances are, you will want to take advantage of the wonderful shopping opportunities in the greater Tampa area and a car is necessary for that as well.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Tampa for $39 or less
  • Book your car hire in Tampa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Luxury car hires in Tampa are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Fortunately for drivers who prefer large vehicles, Tampa has wide streets that offer ample room for vehicles of all sizes. In general, drivers will have no problem navigating the city whether they are driving an SUV or a coupe. However, drivers should note that in the historic downtown area, large vehicles may struggle with streetside parking.

  • Tampa sees a variety of speed limits from 25 mph all the way up to 70 mph on interstate highways. In the downtown area, drivers will typically see speed limits ranging between 30 - 50 mph, depending on the size of the road. On highways, the speed limit is always 55 mph, unless otherwise posted.

  • Tampa, in comparison to many other cities in the U.S., has moderate to cheap gas. The average cost is around $2.25, which, compared to Seattle’s average petrol cost of $3+ per gallon, Boston’s $2.50 and Dallas’ $2, puts it right in the lower range of petrol prices in the U.S.

  • In general, streetside parking is not too difficult to find throughout Tampa, especially in the less crowded outer areas. However, in the historic downtown area, streetside parking can become scarce and difficult to find. Parking garages are a great option for drivers heading downtown, though, as they are amply available and fairly cheap.
