I am hoping the Tampa experts can fill me in on why rental car experiences seem to be a consistent concern for travelers to Tampa.
I have a reservation at Thrifty for my Tampa stay in May and booked solely on price. My last two Thrifty rentals - neither in Tampa - weren't great...marginally clean vehicles and pick-up was off site. I am able to get a good rate in Tampa from Enterprise but my experience with them, in other locations, hasn't been marvelous...my mid-size reservation got me a silly looking, not too well cleaned, Nissan Cube.
Budget gets some poor comments in this forum as do the super low priced vendors. Hertz, National, and Avis prices are not even close to what Thrifty and Enterprise can offer.
Are both Thrifty and Enterprise both at the airport?
