Pros: the car, assistance with the car and politeness of the clerk
Cons: I'm disappointed that they're requiring credit cards now instead of allowing debit, I've used them multiple times in the past because of the convenience and quickness....I don't carry credit cards for a the fact of staying away from the debt and crooked banks of today.

Kayak needs to get its act together
Cons: Online I requested a rental car to be available at Dayton International Airport. I selected a vehicle on kayak. When I ride to the airport I found out The rental facility was 30 minutes away from the airport. I was never informed during the process that the rental was not on the property at the airport but 30 minutes away. Luckily Enterprise took my reservation at the airport if not I would have been in very bad shape to get to an important meeting. Come on kayak as usual the time get your act together on rentals.

Horrible customer service
Pros: The car was great for the price, clean, gas efficient and got us around.
Cons: Customer service was horrible. The car was released and was forced to find another location. The location I originally rented at decided they would release the car because I was 1.5 hrs late. She told me she called once and since I "didnt answer" she "assumed" we "weren't coming." Then instead of helping me out with getting another car, she simply stated, "I'm sorry there is nothing I can do," which is plain old lie. She could have called the nearest location and see if they had anything available. We were forced to call ourselves and do the leg work and pray I didn't have to take an Uber back to the hotel. We get to the second location and had an issue with the business card, we couldn't just switch the reservation to my name because the card didn't have my my name on it, only the CEO's name, IT's A COMPANY CARD, DUH! then the tax exempt "didn't have the CEO name on it only the companies name". Just issue after issue for lack of knowledge and or professionalism. Finally we got the car.

Pros: Car was comfortable and nice to drive.
Cons: Dirty Windshield, overall cleanliness of inside of car could have been better. Guy I dealt with was pretty rude when picking up. Rush you in rush you out kind of mentality. Not my style.

Great van
Pros: The van was a 2016 Chrysler Town & Country with all the bells and whistles. Very comfortable and plenty of space for the five adults in our party. The owner was very polite and tried his best to get us our van as fast as possible.
Cons: The wait to get the van took about 30-45 minutes. Only one person was working the desk although there were two computers. More help with rentals would have been terrific.

Kayak was horrible
Pros: We booked a car to be picked up at the airport in Dayton. When we arrived to pick up the car they had booked us a car in downtown Dayton. After 30 minutes of trying to get a rental at airport I booked through Travelocity at a great price and we were done in 10'minutes. Will never book with Kayak again

Getting a reservation means absolutely nothing
Pros: Literally nothing good about this, see the bad feedback.
Cons: I was called 30 minutes before I was going to go pick up my reservation, to be told there were no cars for me, and he would “try to get us out that day”. And since he was a franchise he had no requirement to help us get a car at another budget: when we called budget corporate, they said if someone comes in physically to get a car they have to give it to them, so YPUR RESERVATION DOESN’T MEAN A THING. I booked this a month in advance. Complete BS.

Good
Pros: This is the second time I've rented a car from this location and in both instances the pick up and drop off have been very smooth. The car made an annoying high pitched sound when going fast and/or it was particularly windy out but was otherwise fine.

Top tips for renting a car in Dayton

  • Dayton is like the majority of cities in the U.S. in that it was designed for automobiles. Public transportation in the city is severely lacking, especially during evenings and on weekends. If you want to make the most out of your time in the city, it is highly recommended that you rent a vehicle. For instance, if you would like to visit the National Museum of the US Air Force, it is just an 11-minute drive from downtown Dayton. However, on public transport, it would take up to 30 minutes to get there.
  • For travelers looking to pick up a rental car after landing at Dayton International Airport, you can find the rental car desk in the airport’s Baggage Claim Area.
  • Though most don’t associate Dayton with wintery weather, it certainly has its fair share of snowstorms in the winter. Travelers visiting the city in winter should make sure to keep the rough weather in mind when planning any itineraries, especially if you aren’t from a snowy climate. However, with a bit of planning and caution, the snow is no hazard and it may even add a nice touch to your trip.
  • Rush hour traffic is a mixed bag in Dayton, especially if you plan on heading to Cincinnati or other neighboring cities. Morning rush hour traffic can start as early as 6:30 a.m. some mornings and slows down by around 9:00 a.m. on a typical day. The afternoon and evening peak usually goes from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
