KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Cincinnati

  • You can use car rental services after arriving at Union Terminal, the primary train station in Cincinnati. However, the terminal doesn’t have rental car offices located on-site. Thus, confirming that the car rental company you use can deliver the car to your preferred location is vital. Cheap car rentals in Cincinnati, such as Enterprise, usually pick up clients from specified locations. For increased convenience, you can rent varied car types such as compact and luxury vehicles. If you require more space in the car, SUVs are also available.
  • Picking a vehicle from Cincinnati car rentals allows you to navigate numerous attraction sites easily. By car, it takes about 20min to get to the Great Parks of Hamilton County, a chain of outdoor centers. The site is approximately 15 miles from Cincinnati. For some night fun, drive to Light Up The Fair in Burlington. It takes about 30min to cover 22 miles from Cincinnati to Burlington. If you are a fan of long drives, you can take about 1h 30min to cover a 100-mile stretch to Louisville and enjoy the beautiful sights of attractions like Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
  • While Cincinnati has a commendable transport infrastructure, you may encounter traffic buildups during annual festivals. In September, Cincinnati hosts North America’s largest Oktoberfest, the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. With hundreds of thousands of attendees, the fiesta calls for the closure of several downtown streets, causing congestion. In May, the Flying Pig Marathon takes place in Cincinnati. Road closures that characterize the event may lead to traffic in the city center. With the help of your car’s navigation system, you can find less congested city streets. However, if you use back roads, be extra careful while driving to avoid jaywalkers. Despite the city’s efforts to penalize the practice, jaywalking is mildly prevalent in Cincinnati.
  • A city that sprawls along the Ohio River and connects to the apex of the Licking River, Cincinnati is best discovered with a rental car. Cincinnati buzzes with an eclectic rustic vibe and is home to many fantastic restaurants and art venues. Whether you plan to escape the city to the world renowned Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden or explore the diverse landscapes the Ohio River has to offer, a rental car will help you maximize your time in town.
  • Cincinnati International Airport, commonly referred to as Northern Kentucky International Airport, is located 13 miles south from the downtown district and takes approximately 20 minutes to drive. A shuttle bus takes you directly from the baggage claim area to the car rental facility, where you will find the counters of many major rental companies such as Hertz, Budget, Enterprise, and Avis.
  • The hills that bless Cincinnati with glorious views also mean that you will experience some unique driving conditions around town. When coming up to any considerable incline, remember to approach at a steady pace and with significant momentum. The mountainous terrain provides an ideal challenge for enthusiastic cyclists, so be cautious of your blind spots and always provide an adequate amount of space.
  • Cincinnati roads become congested between 7 am and 9 am as commuters make their way to work, as well as between 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm. It is advisable to avoid driving during these peak periods of the day and instead enjoy the beautiful riverfront or the long list of activities the city has to offer. Redirecting your driving route to avoid the Brent Spence Bridge, I-75, and I-71 will save you time, especially during the evening rush hour.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Cincinnati for $58 or less
  • Book your rental car in Cincinnati at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Cincinnati are around 0% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Cincinnati are around 1% cheaper than other car types, on average

Upon getting vehicle. Upon starting vehicle, it flashed a message that back tire treading low, needs Maintenace or checked. I asked the gentleman working about it at the exit. He said don't worry about it. 'You should be OK' didn't sound promising. So, I asked the supervisor on duty, he said let's switch your vehicle out. Then, upon turning in the vehicle, the scan person was out to lunch, although 3 able bodies sitting and or standing there said just leave the key in the car and when she gets back from lunch, we will make sure to let her know to scan your vehicle back and email you a receipt. Been over 14 hours since that occurred still no receipt. Concerning that 3 employees can sit and aren't crossed train to scan a vehicle in. Doesn't make sense to me. This is a very sad situation at CVG airport.

Was called and told car was not available and the systems do not update to demonstrate what actually is available. While the call was nice, the option was a different car or for me to drive 30 mins out of my way to another location to pick up the car I wanted - they were too short staffed to have a car brought to the location I needed, 2 days in advance. The car was not ready when I got to the other location, given it was new, there were still stickers on the windows which the representative took off after me asking and the gas was on empty. So the first thing I had to do was go fill the tank up. I feel this approach is intentional to benefit the car rental company because it's harder for the customer to gauge the fuel return vs just filling it back on full.

Cons:

Two days before our rental reservation I received a phone call to inform me there were no Vans available . The Enterprise Rental Manager did not do anything to assist us in the inconvenience. I reached out to Enterprise Corporate and never heard a response. Spoke to a Chris both times. He told me the Vans have been out well over 2 weeks so my response was why did you wait 2 days before our trip to inform me . I will never use this website or Enterprise again. I was able to rent a car through another Company and they now have a New Loyal Customer. Enterprise gave poor Custimer Service and your website was misleading.

Despite having a reservation, when I showed up at the Budget counter for my one-way rental, I was told they didn’t have any one-way rentals. The woman insisted she had left me a voice mail the day before; however, I had no record of even a missed call from her. She wasn’t apologetic or helpful at all. I’ve not booked a car thru Kayak before and I don’t think I will again.

Budget did not actually have a car for me at the designated site. They called that morning and told me in advance at least. Their agent scheduled me for a car at a nearby location in Cincinnati. That location called shortly afterward and told me that they didn't have any cars. The next agent set me up at a third location in downtown Cinci. My wife and I arrived there at the scheduled time only to be told that they didn't have our car. We were in disbelief as we were being told that they would shuttle us to the airport. Moments later someone returned a car and she designated that for us. We gladly waited while it was cleaned up and brought out. The car was in good working order and was clean, except for the fact that it smelled like someone had smoked in it and the attempt to deodorize had failed miserably. I highly recommend not renting from Budget or Avis (they are the same there), since they contract out for cars that they don't have.

Cons:

I was charged twice for the rental. Once when I booked the rental through CarRentals.com, I paid $301.08 and was told I had to pay a remaining $86.01 at pickup. When I picked up the vehicle, I was charged a full $387.99.

Pros:

Nothing. There was absolutely nothing I liked about this company or my experience.

Cons:

I booked this rental one week ahead of the day I needed it. I called ahead to be sure that I had every document that I needed and the method of payment would be accepted. I was told that I would be able to use my bank card and it could be run as credit (because it has the master card logo on it); just bring my social security card with me as a second form of identification. I have five credit cards in my name and making enough of a payment on one of them to be able to use it for the rental was well within means. However, I didn't think I needed to do that because I was told that I could use my bank card. I showed up to get my rental on the day I was supposed to. I was to leave town the next day at 5 a.m. I was told that, no, I could not use that card and, since I didn't pay my credit card bill enough to cover the cost of the rental, I had no car to use and no one could do anything for me at all. To be clear, I did not have a flight. I was renting the car local to use to go out of town for three days. I did mention this to the person that I called because I have never rented from near an airport before. They told me on the phone that everything would be absolutely fine. I asked twice, are you sure? I was told yes both times. Since it was noon and I needed the car the next day at 5 a.m., it was impossible for me to go to a different company to find a rental. Everyone needs a 24 hour notice. On top of all of it, I drove 35 minutes one way (this took about an hour and fifteen minutes out of my day) and the lady I spoke with when I went to pick up the car was extremely rude. I could not be more disappointed. Very, very bad communication and very, very bad service.

Pros:

Quick drop off

Cons:

The salesman asked if I wanted to upgrade to a Charger for $18 extra a day so I said no. Then he’s looking over my shoulder as he’s filling out my paperwork and says wow they’re really fixing you up today and I turn around to see a very nice Cadillac sedan pull up. So I was like- for real? Is this an upgrade for free for some reason? He then stated no- just an option. This was very deceptive in my opinion. He was nice but I felt disrespected as though he thought I was stupid. I work for high end businesses in the financial district in San Francisco. I know a bad salesman when I see them. He was nice but pretty sly.

I have been a loyal customer at this location and have rented vehicles for years here. However this is the last time I will rent from this location. The agent/manager/whatever was rude, condescending, and obnixous. He made it more than obvious he treats "certain" customers much better than others. I witnessed it first hand when I came to rent the vehicle. Then when I returned the vehicle he was literally fawning over the gentlemen in front of me and DID NOT treat me the same AT ALL when I was renting the car. Also the location was absolutely filthy. I will not return.

While I am still waiting on the return of my deposit through Avis, the pickup and drop off process through our Avis location was very easy and our vehicle was a clean hybrid minivan that was comfortable and an efficient ride for our whole group during our trip. Overall, this location made for a really good experience.

I waited over an hour from the time I arrived until the vehicle was ready. When I got the vehicle it strongly smelled like cigarette smoke. That smell was there the entire time. Thankfully my son took detailed pictures of the vehicle when we picked it up. At drop off, they tried to claim that we were responsible for existing damage to the vehicle. We had the pictures to prove the damage was already there. Overall a bad experience.
