Top tips for hiring a car at Gainesville Regional airport

  • Opting for a car rental at Gainesville Regional Airport is one of the most important decisions any tourist will take during their vacation. Renting a car here is convenient and easy, as well as affordable. As soon as you step out of your plane, many travel options are awaiting you. Rental cars can be booked with a reservation or with no prior booking. This is a great way to save money and rent a more comfortable vehicle than what is generally available through other transport services.
  • The most common car types available for rent at the airport are sedans and minivans. Sedans come with small backseats, but also a large trunk. Therefore, if you plan to pack everything you need for your trip in one go, this is the best car type for you. If not, then consider renting a minivan that has a large trunk, so you can leave your luggage in there and travel with just a handbag or backpack. Business travelers looking for car rentals at Gainesville Regional Airport will find it convenient to rent an SUV. SUVs are perfect for long-distance trips as they are powerful, comfy, have lots of room, and have great fuel consumption rates.
  • Gainesville Regional Airport is usually busy between 8 am - 7 pm, so plan ahead for delays and traffic. On average, most car rental companies will provide you with a free map of the city center. Use it to find your way around if you're not familiar with the city. Make sure to rent a GPS at the airport as well. The off-peak hours for renting cars are the best time to get a good deal on your rental car. When using this service, do not forget to ask for directions on how to return it at the car rental desk, as most of them are closed at night.
  • When returning your car, make sure to check the damages, and report them if there are any. The process might be different, depending on the company, but generally, you will need to fill out an inspection form at the rental office and return the car key.
  • Book your car hire at Gainesville Regional airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

I stood in line about a half hour waiting to get the car Saturday morning. . The ride was a bit rough (the Altima had 60k miles on it). But it served its purpose. The employees at pickup and drop off were nice. The girl at drop off in Daytona was particularly kind.

Pros:

I wish i had something positive to say but i do not.

Cons:

Well to be perfectly honest it was the worst experiance i have ever had with any rental car company. After booking i called budget rental in gainsville three different times over 3 days only to be transferred to not 1 but 3 different individuals who could barely speak english and were definately not in Gainsville and of next to no help. They confirmed and told me that someone would be at the budget counter when i arrived or that i would be able to get my keys and that someone would contact me withing 24 hours of flying (which never happened). I landed in Gainsville FL at 936 (they close at 10), but nobody was at the desk, i called the budget company 3 different times that night only to be transferred to individuals that lets face it should not be in customer care and their "supervisors" were an absolute joke and even worse help. Turns out that the card i have on file they didn't charge and they cancelled the booking giving me 0 notification of anything and what customer care do you ask i got as a return? "your rental was cancelled cause we are braindead" oops. no respect, no nothing, if i could fire everyone i spoke with, i would start there. In closing i would like to say that budget your company and your customer care is absolute trash and i would rethink your current business plan and staff before bankruptcy. Worst ever go to ENTERPRISE they were amazing and i could actually talk to someone at their local desk when i called #gasp imagine that? budget = pile of hot garbage. so many other things ill keep to myself......... Please, Please budget do not reach out to me unless you intend to give me cash for the hell you put me, all those others who had to hear me rage and go off in the middle of the airport on your phone staff for screwing me and my brother and sister out of our car stranding us with no apology or reconciliation and zero i mean zero customer care.

No one was at the airport counter when I went to pick up the car for about 20 minutes, so it was a bit weird, I only stayed bc the airport employee said someone would be back soon. Otherwise I had an awesome experience, the car was great and affordable.

Pros:

We were fortunately upgraded at pickup to an intermediate SUV, which was helpful because it meant we had a little more room to work with for our trip for the holidays.

Cons:

We had a slow leak in a tire. I spent an hour on the phone with roadside service trying to find a way to get the tire fixed, and was recommended a tire shop 25 minutes away. I called two places that were closer to me in the next 2 minutes and found that one of them could see me right away and went there. They checked the tire, determined that it needed replaced, but didn't have the replacement in stock. They filled it so that it could carry me for a while longer. I stopped at an off-airport location to see if they could replace the vehicle and was told they couldn't access my rental information because I was renting from an airport location. Why in the world are they on different systems that can't interact? Two days later I called roadside again and the person could not get ahold of the local airport location but could see their inventory and told me that a vehicle should be available if I show up and tell them we tried to call ahead and I needed a vehicle. They did have some SUVs but they were slotted for pickup later in the day, so they sent me off with a mini-van instead. This was an acceptable replacement for me and I was just glad to have the issue finally resolved. The whole experience was quite overwhelming, and I would hope that such a simple issue could be resolved more quickly and easily.
