Price could have been lower. Staff could have had the vehicle in a location where I didn’t have to walk 5 minutes looking for the area the car was parked in.

Bottom line is the third party insurance I bought through KAYAK was not in the agreement at the airport, nor could I locate it on KAYAK emails or find a contact to answer the simple question if I had coverage on the reservation. I ended up purchasing both policies because I couldn’t find the 3rd party verification. I doubt I will ever buy insurance from KAYAK 3rd party again because of the inability to access help on a simple question when I needed it. Heaven forbid if I ever needed to collect on it.All chargers should be printed on all documents and you should not have to go on a 20 minute scavenger hunt to find help.

Everything went as expected.Nothing I can think about now.

The staff in Bentonville was incredibly efficient and helpful. The dropoff in Little Rock was friendly and quick as well. The Toyota Corolla had nice features and excellent on gas mileage.The interior was dirty. There was a liquid spill around the emergency brake with several large particles of food. I thought about cleaning it for the next person, but honestly it was nasty and not the job of the renter. The cost for a one-way 200 mile trip was too high, but I had no other options.

Rental of Mustang ConvertibleRental process was essentially effortless, staff were well mannered and very helpful. Car was fun to drive and made for a great weekend.Nothing except the rear passenger tire had a slow puncture so the low tire alert went off as soon as I started up the car. I had to get on road so put air on it as soon as I was able. It had to be inflated quite a few times throughout the rental. I called the roadside asssit, they came out to put the spare tire on, but that would not work as I had to travel over 500 miles. It would have been nice to have got it fixed properly but we made do.

The team was very helpful and friendly. I was in and and out quickly.My vehicle, while clean, had a funny smell. Bleacj-esque, not super pleasant. It was odd and probably just an anomaly

I told Enterprise that my flight was delayed, but they gave away the minivan that I had reserved anyway.
9.6 ExcellentApr 10 2017
Incredibly easy and hassle free rental processThe friendliest staff I've ever encountered while renting a car. The cars have always operated well, no surprises on unpleasantries. The pickup process has been a little inconsistent, varying from Okay to Incredible.I went to go get my car from the pickup lot and could not find it for a while. The lot had a non-sequential numbering system that made it difficult to find spot 46.
7.2 GoodMar 18 2017
Over sellingSales pressure was a bit muchThe car we reserved wasnt quite ready but for an additional 3 a day you can get this car. Too much sales pressure

Upgraded our rental and did not charge drop fee as we were helping them relocate cars from airport to Fayetteville AR location.
10.0 ExcellentSep 14 2016
Excellent serviceThe car is actually located at the airport, not off-airport. Easy 1 minute walk from counter to car.

They have zero customer service skills. My reservation was for 9am. I got there at 8:45 and was told they had to "go get my car and it would be at a least 40 minute wait. It never mentioned I would need a major credit card if I didn't 0ass their credit check (that I didn't authorize). I drove out of my way to this place and it was all for nothing.
9.6 ExcellentJul 29 2019
It was easy once it wasn't confusing.It was confusing. Need better instructions as to what to do with the cars after entering the garage. Block ff the first couple of stalls with arrows pointing to where you want the cars during business hours.

Will never use againWe called to let them know our flight was delayed. To come to find out the car was reserved not at the airport like I requested, (I selected Fayettville Airport), but it was reserved one town over in the middle of nowhere, we had to take a $45 Cab, got there as they were closing, the lady said we had to have the ful coverage insurance that was an add-on of $32 a day, we were there for my Mother-in-law's funeral a d the car rental was one of the horrific experiences in traveling we have ever had.

1.9 HorribleSep 27 2021
It’s was a complete failure. When I went to the counter the rep told me to produce the same credit card that was used to make the reservation, I explained to her that my girlfriend is the one that did the online prepaid reservation and I didn’t have access to it. I provided her with my debit card but the rep said they were not allowed to accept it. I was left stranded at the airport and had to pay $200 for a Uber to my destination.
3.9 MediocreAug 14 2021
I had to cancel this car because of COVID. There was not a problem with Avis. They were very nice about it. I had purchased the extra insurance and was told I would receive the money back for that. Haven’t seen it yet.

4.8 OkayJul 18 2017
Beware if it is a Holiday!Location was close to place I was staying.I know pickup was on July 4th. But was traveling from Missouri to Arkansas on that day. I did not receive a call or email from Avis stating that they would be closing early on the 4th. Otherwise I would have left MS earlier to make it to AVIS by noon. We called customer service to see if there was another pick up location that was open. It was at an airport 2 hrs away and they wanted to charge us $150 more. Thank goodness my flight was not until the afternoon on the 5th, which allowed me to pick it up early that morning before traveling to Oklahoma. I was not happy! CS was not helpful either as far as problem solving.
2.0 MediocreNov 1 2016
Hidden tax!Nothing at allHidden sales tax of 22.5%. Not in Kayak quote and according to my research not the law in Arkansas. Tried to resolve over the phone and Avis rep totally useless. Second bad experience in a row with Avis. Never again!

If price is the factor, this is your carBasically I liked the car, and the price was good.You get what you pay for, this was the cheapest car available, but it had nothing except air conditioning. It would have been great had the car had cruise control.
5.6 OkayApr 27 2016
PoorMy rental ended up costing waaaaay more than originally quoted. I travel ever week and the ONE time I use a personal card to pay for a trip it is 3 or 4x the original cost.

Car rental insurance in Bentonville

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bentonville car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Bentonville.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Bentonville car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Bentonville

  • Whether you are in Bentonville for business or pleasure, having a car can make your trip more enjoyable. For starters, you'll be able to travel at your own pace but a lot faster than you would when using public transportation. This means you'll have more time to conduct business matters or discover the city. It may seem like renting a car would be expensive, but on the contrary, it's a lot cheaper because you can get an economy car and avoid expensive taxis or having to deal with bus timetables. Getting a car from car rentals in Bentonville means having more space to carry your luggage if you have biking, hiking, or camping gear. You'll be cozy throughout the trip, you'll be in control of the radio and air conditioner, you'll have ultimate privacy, and be completely restriction-free. Your trip to Bentonville will be completely at your convenience and flexibility. You can even drop at the River Valley Artisan Market, a little over 86 miles away, for some souvenirs.
  • The Northwest Arkansas National Airport has a car rental facility at the lower-level Terminal in the baggage claim area. Some of the Bentonville car rentals you'll find here include Avis, Budget, Hertz, National, and Enterprise. If you’d like to pick up the car at the airport, an easy option would be to book it through KAYAK and find it waiting for you, ready for the trip. If you'd rather not drive from the airport, you have the option to pick up the car at the rental agencies in Bentonville city.
  • The one thing you should be wary of on Bentonville roads and overall Arkansas roads is trucks. You’ll find numerous trucks on the way, and they usually drive at a lower speed limit, so be careful when passing them. Of course, you can never be too sure with pedestrians, especially at intersections. 
  • Interstate 49 and Highway 102 are usually more congested during rush hours, which run from 6:30am to 8:30am and 4pm to 7pm. Traffic on the AR-72 and US 71 might also be bumper to bumper, but it's not always full-on gridlock. Beyond that, Bentonville roads can be very dangerous during winter due to snowstorms and icy roads. Even with the best car, sometimes you may have to stay off the road.
