YesIf the car you want is available when you get there to pick up, not a similar one

Easy pick up and drop offThe cars speakers were messed up, the light for the clock and stereo system didn’t work, there was no back up camera. Most of all the steel light bugged me as I couldn’t see anything on there and then on the last day the light appears! So dumb

Hertz has the friendliest employees. I had to change reservation a bit and they were happy to work with me. I will always rent cars from them

I had a ride arranged to go pick up the car only to find out there were no cars available. Waste of time and money as well as not having a car next day for planned trip.

Worst rental experience everThe rental counter at the Bakersfield airport told me they had no cars available, however, two other people in the airport came up and told me they had been told the same thing but if you sat down and made an online reservation there would miraculously be cars. I tried this and sure enough, I drove off in a car. The laziness of the customer service agents to turn away customers is astonishing. The car I received was not the model I had booked and it had not been cleaned in quite awhile. The inside windshield was so dirty it was hard to see through at night and in the rain.

They didn’t walk the car just handed me the keys. When I arrived at my destination they stated I should have demanded them to walk the car because there’s damage on the side door that had been obviously touched up. I don’t think I should ask an agent to walk the car they should know to walk their rentals.

No one came to pick up my keys. I was charged an exorbitant amount for filling up the gas tank.

I was in a rush and I felt the Budget representative sneakily charged me insurance and I specifically told her I already had insurance.

The car that I chose or anything similar was not available... The only car the had available was a small vehicle which was not what I needed for the weekend

They gave me my car early around 3:20 for a 4:00 pickup. Said I could return at 4 with no extra charge. Then charged me an extra day! Quick service for pickup though

I loved that it was a check check out never experienced this before when renting a car . Great customer service.The front windshield inside needs to be cleaned hard to see out .

Drop off was smooth, attendant was efficient and friendly.Pick up was a laborious process due to system outage. Nothing was done to compensate and nothing was offered.
3.6 MediocreSep 27 2017
Unexpected Frustrations - Never again!The car it self was comfortable (lowered score because the inside was dirty) for a smaller car and got great gas mileage.1. Fine print regarding company rules for National Car rental would not download for us to read before we went to pick up car, so we did not expect the $100 hold on a major credit card/not debit, customer service at the pick up location was to put it mildly unhelpful, sarcastic, smug, and didn't know when to stop repeating himself, even after I put my hand up and said "STOP". "I get what your saying, I would just like you to be empathic to my frustration." At which point he smiles and then finishes repeating his statement to me. 2. Husband gets into car and being the professional he is, found the car to be dirty. Takes it to a car wash so he can be comfortable in it, isn't this something that is suppose to be done before he even gets into the car? 3. While driving the car he discovers there is no windshield wiper fluid, so he can not remove any bugs that may be blocking his vision. Again isn't this supposed to be filled before he gets the car? I sure hope all the other fluids are ok. 4. Then a warning light flashed "Take to dealer immediately!" WAIT WHAT? My husband had been driving it for less than 20 minutes, on his way to a job interview, he can't call and talk with anyone the Bluetooth wont transfer any sound through the speakers, he's in the middle of now ware by now, he can't pull off or turn around, so he call's me to have me call and to find out if he needs to do anything. After being on hold for over 10 minutes I get through to the roadside customer claims office. I tell her I am not in the car, the closet town is about 100 miles away, the above info, and then she proceeds to ask me a few question, "where are you at now?" I'm at home, I'm not in the car, my husband is. "Ok mam, where is the car?" On the highway in the middle of nowhere (does nobody at this company listen when you are talking with them?) "Ok mam ,lets see if I can help you"...ask a few more questions I had already given her the answer to, finally she states she can't help me she needs to talk with my husband since he's the one driving the car....at this point I am dumbfounded, he can't pull off anywhere safe to call you no exits and the Bluetooth isn't working....By this time the light has flashed "maintenance required", so my husband is no longer worried about the engine exploding just irritated as this is poor vehicle maintenance, a pet peeve of his. 5. Returning the car, my husband is delighted to see the same customer service rep as before (I am so making that up), the rep has the same attitude, makes my husband walk back out to the car to write the miles down (unlimited miles, we don't have to do that with Enterprise they'll do it for you), smugly says "I will have my guys do a better job at looking over the car before they go out with customers next time." Uh ok guy you do that but we will not be repeat customers with this company.

3 day Altima rental car was a treat.Car was really the icing on cake . Plenty of room and was a smooth comfortable ride. I asked for a Camry but the agent at National recommended the Altima. Great car.Exterior was dirty and interior had soda residue on the passenger side.

My son lives in Ridgecrest, two hours away. Traveling by yourself is stressful enough, so I like the convenience that Enterprise is right in the terminal. As a women driving by myself, it gives me such peace of mind that I will arrive safely. The cars have always been clean, new and ran perfectly. I will continue to use them and Kayak for my travel needs.Nothing

They helped out.They never told me to bring a credit card to pay for the rental. I have a debit/ master card and I couldn’t pay for the rental with this card. I had to drive 25 minutes back to may house to get my credit card. This was very inconvenient. All they need to state on the agreement or reservation would be “only credit cards accepted for rentals” “ no debit/ credit cards accepted”. No where did it state this.
8.4 ExcellentSep 28 2019
Everything about the car, rental at the airport and drive ability was good. However, I was surprised that the interior and exterior were not cleaned well at the BFL airport prior to pickup.

Your Roadside Service is terrible, they are no help. I had a flat tire and they couldn’t provide any assistance. Basically the response I got was you will have to fix it yourself.

The car was not clean. I tried to speak with the representative and he said Avis does not have a manager… nothing he could do. I would think they could refund a portion or a day or two! I had to clean the car. I was surprised of their attitude. Will not rent Avis in the future. Would like someone to call.

Top tips for renting a car at Bakersfield Meadows Field Airport

  • On your next flight to Kern County, California, consider booking a car rental at Meadows Field Airport (BFL), so you can explore the region on your own terms. With a rented automobile, you get in the driver's seat immediately after deboarding the aircraft. Unlike shuttles that are relatively far from BFL premises, rental cars are parked on site. Grab your keys at one of the three parking lots reserved for car rental companies.
  • From Highway 99, exit at the 7th Standard Road and turn east. Keep walking for about 1.5 miles, following the arrivals signs. On the right side are the baggage claim area and the pick-up counters where to grab the keys. The car lot is about 200 feet from the baggage claim area. Provide your driver's license and take the pre-printed documents with all the terms and conditions. The return location is at the same address for pick-up (3701 Wings Way, Bakersfield, CA 93308). Of course, you can’t always return the car during working hours. For after-hours return, park and lock the vehicle, then place the keys and the contract form in the drop box. When returning the car after midnight, you can count on security guards at the rental center to open the door for you. Plus, there is always a key person or manager to escort you to the car park.
  • Bakersfield has its charms and fun things to do. And you're probably wondering if your car rental at Meadows Field Airport offers unlimited mileage. It is possible to book a car with unlimited mileage through KAYAK. After all, you want to see all your desired attractions without restrictions regarding the distance you can cover. Check out the best deals for mileage and book as early as possible to start making plans for your Bakersfield getaway.
  • A rental company usually requires renters to present credit cards or debit cards with sufficient funds to cover a security deposit and any applicable charge not covered in the prepaid voucher. Ensure you have a valid international credit card but avoid third-party cards because not all rental agencies accept such. Whether your mode of payment is approved or not is entirely up to the rental supplier.
