Top tips for hiring a car in Pensacola

  • A hire car is the perfect way to explore not only the coastal city of Pensacola, but also the state of Florida and its world-famous attractions, as public transportation between cities is not widely available. Drive to the famous Pensacola Beach, located on Santa Rosa Island, just 10 miles away from Pensacola. For a day filled with adventure, go to the Blackwater River State Park, just 52 miles from the city.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Alamo and Avis, can be found at Pensacola International Airport (PNS), which is conveniently located almost 4 miles from the city center. Car hire services are situated just across the baggage claim area, which is on the first floor of the airport’s main terminal. If you’re heading to Pensacola during peak season, consider booking your vehicle in advance.
  • While Pensacola is rather easy to navigate, the main attractions are pretty spread out, so be prepared to drive longer distances sometimes. All vehicles should stop at a red light, but a right-hand turn is then allowed if there is no oncoming traffic. The city is home to many college students, so if you’re driving at night be extra careful with reckless drivers or drunken pedestrians. Downtown is particularly crowded on weekends, so stay within speed limits and be alert.
  • The commute times in Pensacola are some of the best in the country, and traffic jams aren’t common. The I-98, which takes you to Pensacola Beach through Pensacola Bay and English Navy Cove, is usually pretty crowded during weekends and the summer. It’s also more packed on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. If you’re planning on heading to the beach, try going as early as possible or wait for the morning crowds to dissipate.
