10.0 ExcellentFeb 16 2021
Pros: Easy booking and pickup for the car. Clean and reliable cars to rent!Cons: The rate was fair but additional charges like gas was not expected as I was not mentioned about tank fill up. Over charged me for fuel. And drop off location needs to be more.
10.0 ExcellentDec 22 2020
Pros: Cool Car, Nice RideCons: Snow fall
10.0 ExcellentNov 9 2020
Cons: The entire experience was fantastic.
10.0 ExcellentDec 11 2019
Cons: Everything was great. I don’t know how it could have been better actually!
9.6 ExcellentMay 9 2019
Pros: Staff was fine at pickup and drop off (especially at drop off)Cons: The only slight annoyance was the number of times the counter rep suggested I purchase their insurance. I understand it’s their job to present this (profitable) option, but two offers is enough, I didn’t need the extra attempts. But this did not change my perception that this was a very nice rental
10.0 ExcellentMay 7 2019
Pros: Everything was easy.Cons: We rented in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
10.0 ExcellentApr 26 2019
Pros: Although not a new car, it had no issues, and was the right size for me. The staff was very nice, no upgrade pressure.Cons: Was a bit worried about the check engine light, but when I mentioned it to him before I left, he noted that it was getting near a service milestone. And as I mentioned, it had no issues.

Pros: Staff was friendly and efficient; the car was ready when I arrived and dropoff went smoothly

Pros: Excellent
4.8 OkayJan 5 2018
Pros: NothingCons: I didn’t like how they processed everything, too fast and didn’t have a choice of car. I would of liked a compact with trunk not hatch. And again fast with the check out, I wanted to pay cash and they didn’t even give us a chance to ask if we could. They were only concerned how many miles I put on, and that I parked in the return section. Mind you it’s snowing outside and their parking lot is a mess. Safety first? Lol mileage should be my last concern, And besides I’m paying.
6.8 GoodSep 29 2017
Cons: CAR WAS KNOT CLEAN
8.4 ExcellentJun 28 2017
Fine Print: Read ItPros: Low price, fast process, easy to pick up and drop offCons: Car was obviously smoked in even though they claim a non smoking fleet.. It was like driving an ashtray with leather seats. Froze $200 of credit for 3 days past my drop off as opposed to date of pick up. Was very odd.
10.0 ExcellentJun 22 2017
Visiting grandkidsPros: there was nothing to dislike, the car was clean, picked up in Allentown and dropped off in PHI. Everyone was very efficient and friendly. You have a good team in PA.
6.8 GoodMay 29 2017
Pros: I liked the car. I drive a Subaru and was given an Outback by the agent at ABE. She was wonderful. Name? sorry I forgot.Cons: ABE airport is going through reconstruction and the rental car lot has been relocated temporarily. While I understand the process, Budget has been relocated to the furthest point. My husband was in a wheel chair and it was raining. A porter named Luis was kind enough to get the car for us and pull it to the front entrance. When we returned, I dropped my husband and suitcases off and went to return the car. The attendant for budget said there was no shuttle and I would have to walk back to the airport! The distance was unbelievable!! NO SHUTTLE, NO GOLFCART to transport your clients?? Unacceptable!

2.0 MediocreJun 20 2021
Pros: This was overall a terrible experience for me. The car was extremely dirty (both inside and outside) at pick-up. The drop-off experience was even worst. I made a reservation for a day, traveling from PA to CT for an estimated cost of $201.24 due at pick-up. I dropped off the car around noon (mid-day) on the same day. A few days later, I checked my bank account and saw that they charged me $631.33 (triple the initial estimated price I agreed with at pick-up). It turns out that when I dropped off the car, the agent did not add it to the system until three days later, which he confirmed to me himself. Then, he told me to call the company for a reimbursement, which would take two to three weeks. When I called Hertz, they confirmed that they charged me for three days instead of one and told me they would do what is necessary to deal with the issue. I still have not received any follow-up calls or emails from them. This is extremely unprofessional and irresponsible of them.Cons: I need my money back. The agent made a mistake that I ended up paying for.
8.0 ExcellentJun 2 2021
Pros: StaffCons: Website offers honesty - they posted mis information
10.0 ExcellentMay 15 2021
Pros: The staff was nice and professional but seems like did not know I was there to pick my car.Cons: The pick up location can be better
10.0 ExcellentMay 12 2021
Cons: We had car trouble with the car we originally rented. But Ben and Doug from the Hertz in Roanoke came and picked us up quickly and got us going in a new car. They were wonderful. The emergency roadside assistance was poor. We were on hold for over half an hour before we got through. Then it took them over an hour and a half to pick up the car. Fortunately due to Ben and Doug, we got another car and didn’t have to wait for the tow.
10.0 ExcellentMay 5 2021
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. Pickup and dropoff took only a few minutes. Very pleased

Cons: new wipers
2.0 MediocreMar 26 2021
Pros: I made an online reservation for a one-way rental and booked a non-refundable motel room in my destination city. Got a call the next morning that they didn't have a car for me, that they didn't do a one-way rental between the cities. Personnel were polite and professional and apologized.Cons: Their reservation system sucks. It lets you make a reservation that the company can't fulfill. I needed a one-way rental to pick up a motorcycle I had bought a couple months ago. I tried several companies including Enterprise which I usually use for one-way rentals. None were accepting a one-way rental until I tried Hertz and made a reservation. I then booked a non-refundable motel room in my destination city. Got a call from Hertz the next morning that they didn't have a car for me, that they didn't do a one-way rental between the cities my reservation was for. Personnel were polite, professional and apologized. I told them their reservation system sucked and they agreed. I got the impression this was a routine occurrence - their reservation system accepting reservations that could not be fulfilled.
2.0 MediocreMar 4 2021
Cons: Agency was closed when flight arrived - was unable to rent car and had to rent from another agency - seeking refund
10.0 ExcellentMar 12 2019
Pros: Yes. Staff very helpful. Pick up and drop off were very fast and smooth.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2018
Super easy car rental and return.Pros: The airport is very easy to get to and the Rental Car return lanes and parking lot are easy to find and get in and out of. The rental car counters are a very short walk and easy to find, and there are carts around to place your luggage on so you don't have to carry everything. The rental lot runners/employees are also very helpful if you have questions or need direction.Cons: Honestly, there really isn't anything I didn't like about the ABE airport car rental experience.

4.8 OkayAug 8 2019
Pros: I specifically asked for an American made car when I made the reservation. When I got there, all the agent would say “or similar”. He did change the Nissan to a Ford, but the. Charged me extra. I had all this worked out when I made the reservation, dont they put any notes in the database so this c?Cons: Provide the car promised at reservation or at least honor the price given when you reserve.

Pros: The staff at Avis at EWR were fantastic. My wife had a medical issue and all the staff went far beyond what was a job requirement to assist us in so many ways.

It was deceiving. The advertisement said $2.49/gal for them to fill the car upon return but it was actually a flat fee of $40. I filled the car and it only cost $28.00.

5.2 OkayNov 14 2019
Pros: I had requested full coverage insurance for this rental. The agent who issued the car to me never added that coverage.

5.6 OkayJul 6 2018
Frustrating experiencePros: Car was perfectly clean, and had better features (forward automatic braking) than most rental cars.Cons: Car was reported as full but came with 3/4 of a tank, though they did reimburse my refueling.

5.2 OkaySep 27 2020
Pros: The pick up was fine. There was no line and the counter agent was nice.Cons: The drop off was not ideal. There was no sign for Thrifty at the Philly airport. I happened to see some Thrifty vans parked in the parking lot of an office with a Dollar sign. My husband hopped out of the car and went into the building to ask if it was also where we should return a Thrifty rental. If he hadn't done that, we probably would have been circling the airport for awhile. Long story short, there should be better signage. In addition, an agent normally comes out to check in the car. I actually had to go inside the office to ask for someone to check in the car. It's not that big of a deal but it's nice when someone comes out - takes a bit off the stress of returning a car and catching a flight.
3.6 MediocreSep 10 2020
Pros: Staff at pickup were friendly. The 1st car chosen was all dented and scratched and windshield broken. Ac didn’t work. Wasted an hour going back and forth to get another car. Check your cars prior. Drop off SUCKEDCons: Your drop off instructions. Easy way to get a hold of someone besides the 800 number. Very upset
10.0 ExcellentJul 6 2020
Pros: Clean car easy service and easy to extend if you need more days with the car
7.6 GoodJan 21 2020
Cons: I think it is immoral to charge me $10 a gallon for a full tank of gas, when I did not use the full tank. I sort of understand charging a premium. The gas supply is no doubt right next to the wash and detail area, so it cannot cost much more for the service folks to gas up the car. It's just another way, along with selling insurance, that the Hertz car rental system gouges the unsuspecting.
8.0 ExcellentApr 5 2019
Pros: It was easy to pickup and drop off. Car was a good size for our needs and would rent again from Thrifty.Cons: The car smelled kinda weird - like smoke but it wasn't unbearable.
2.0 MediocreOct 16 2018
Bald TiresPros: I can’t really complain about the rate. It was quite affordable.Cons: Even if you are paying a good rate, you should expect that the car would at least be safe. The front tires had NO tread left and i was having to drive in the rain! Every time I would start from a stop the tires would spin out!!! Yikes! And when breaking the antilock breaks would engage. Definitely one of the scariest drives I’ve driven!!! Also, I had no idea that the location was NOT on airport like all of the other locations! Someone should apprise you of this so you don’t miss your flight!!!

Top tips for renting a car in Allentown

  • When you plan your vacation to Allentown, one of the major concerns you may have is whether you’ll be able to fulfill your itinerary within your stipulated timeframe. More so if you have to use public transportation. There’s a certain flexibility and convenience that comes with having a car as you cruise about in a new city. Most rental cars in Allentown are equipped with GPS and navigational technology, so getting lost is nothing to worry about. You also get the opportunity to experience some of the hidden gems inside and outside the city. For example, the Mattress Factory, which houses one-of-a-kind art installations and exhibitions, is 31 miles away. You can also hit the road in your rental car and take in the scenery all the way to the Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle, located about 31 miles away as well. 
  • Once you arrive at the Leigh Valley International Airport, you’ll have your pick from Allentown car rentals. The rental car counters can be found in the terminal close to the baggage claim. You’ll pick up your car outside the terminal, in the same location where you’ll bring it back when the trip is over. You can choose from multiple car rentals in Allentown, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Budget.
  • Once you hit the road in your Allentown rental car, some of the things you should be wary of are farm equipment and horse-drawn vehicles. Most of these vehicles are slow-moving, so if you’re not careful, they can present unfamiliar hazards. Most rural roads in Allentown may also be harder to maneuver because you’re likely to experience grassy berms and loose gravel. You may also come across unexpected turns and sharp dips, some of which may present driving challenges for new drivers to the area.
  • When driving in Allentown, the Airport Road northbound between Union Boulevard and Lloyd Street can be very congested, and you need to drive carefully here. Route 145 can also get backed up during high-traffic hours. The same goes for North 7th Street between West Union Street and West Green Street and eastbound route 222 Hamilton Boulevard close to North 15th Street. You may also want to be careful on South 4th Street and Union Boulevard, as the intersections can be quite hectic to maneuver.

  • Book your rental car in Allentown at least 5 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Allentown are around 47% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Allentown
