I landed at Erie international in my private plane. I got a ride to the terminal. The Budget desk in the terminal was dark. I asked the adjacent rental desk attendant about where the Budget attendant might be and was told probably washing cars. I turned away and purple by chance saw a young woman hunched down behind the counter in the dark texting or playing a game on her phone. I got her attention. She was reluctant and sullen as I disturbed her. She said I didn’t have a reservation and she had no cars. I said I have my reservation number, she said my reservation was for the off site Budget rental dealer about 1/2 mile away. I had to walk there. As I arrived this same woman arrived at the Budget operation I had just walked to, driving a car. Not good customer service. She could have offered me a ride. She could have been more accommodating. The operation seems to be operating in survival mode. Will rent elsewhere on my next trip to Erie PA. Car was fine.

Cons:

The Kia car was extremely hard to get in and out of, hard to move the front seats and was dented when I got it, so it looked shabby. Budget did not discount it because it was dented, although they certainly would have charged me if I dented it!

Pros:

I got the type of car I reserved. Car was clean and ready to go. Staff got me taken care of fairly quick.

Cons:

The fuel charges were not explained well. I missunderstood the final bill and thought I was overcharged but I think the fuel charges get sorted later after fueling.

Pros:

On the very last day I did not get the gentleman's name. But he had blonde hair. But he was very polite and announced me by my last name which I love! It shows he has manners and did not call me by my first name. It was pretty crowded but I got out at a efficient time.

Cons:

When I first checked in Miss Kristen had call me by my first name I like to be called by my last name. Otherwise everything else was great and she upgraded me to a full size car without additional cost. I did not expect that great customer service!

Pros:

The staff was very quick and got me in-and-out fast on both the pick up and drop off.

Cons:

The car was a crappier model than what I was expecting. There was some sort of mechanical issue that was causing vibration and noise. It smelled like it had been smoked in for all of its 14,000 miles. The steering wheel was sticky. The vehicle braked suddenly and unexpectedly while I was driving.

The godawful car that I got from the Newark Hertz got a flat tire and the Pocono Township Hertz was nearby. They let us swap out the bad car for one that had four working tires.

It would have been nice if I didn't have to stop here in the first place.

Top tips for renting a car in Erie

  • Whether going to Erie for a summer holiday or a business trip, this city has too much to explore. Erie car rentals offer an unmatched option to fulfill your desired commitments and attend different gateways inside and outside the city center timely. You don't have to don't get stranded searching for exclusive car rentals if you want to access Erie from Altoona or Exton rail stations. In these rail stations, you have unlimited options to choose exclusive cheap car rentals in Erie from Hertz, SIXT, Avis, and Europcar. The distance between Altoona rail station to Erie city center is 202 Miles and 3hr 45min drive using US-422 E or I-79 S highways. Exton rail station to Erie is 25 miles away, implying you need the utmost 39 minutes to drive downtown.
  • Cheap car rentals in Erie allow you to meet your goals and have enough time to visit different tourist destinations. For example, you can visit Erie maritime museum positioned at Presque Isle bay downtown, only 9 minutes’ drive through Holland St and Parade St. You can unwind your engaging business day by visiting Waldameer Park and water world located only 4 miles and 10 minutes’ drive from the city center. Niagara Falls isn't a place to miss while in Erie, and it's located 116.6 miles away, only 2hr drive through I-90E.
  • Erie hosts well-developed pedestrians-only streets to avoid road inconveniences caused by pedestrians to vehicles. As a driver, you are not expected to drive through these zones, and violating this traffic code can be fined no more than $25. Some of the pedestrian-only streets in Erie worth knowing about are the West 8th street corridor positioned between Greengarden Road and Pittsburgh Avenue. Erie Boulevard pedestrian zone is located on Westmoreland Avenue from East Fayette Street.
  • Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority (EMT) manages the city’s transit buses, the downtown circulator, and the Bayliner Trolley that you can use to get around the city cheaply. Like in any other city, EMT facilities have the limitation of pre-decided routes and schedules that Erie car rentals help you break free from. Besides enjoying a luxury experience with car rentals in Erie, you’ll be able to explore the city as you wish. For instance, renting a car will allow you to visit key sites, such as the Erie Zoo, Presque Isle State Park, Asbury Woods, among other places within and further from the city. You can also rush to urgent meetings and take impromptu detours without the added stress of waiting to catch a certain bus and finding your way around the city on foot.
  • Erie International Airport is six miles from the central business district of Erie. For convenience, the car rental center is located on the airport’s premises. There are various Erie car rentals in the rental center, including Avis, Enterprise, Alamo, Budget, Hertz, Easirent, National, and Sunnycars. The rental representatives can be found at the counters near the boarding gate, where you’ll be given the rental car’s keys and proceed to pick the car at the baggage claim area. The aforementioned rental companies also provide shuttle buses that’ll pick you up at the terminal and take you to nearby off-airport locations.
  • Erie is common with jaywalking and cyclists who aren’t keen on following traffic rules, so be cautious when driving around. To maintain highway safety, the Department of Transport responsible for the city roads may restrict vehicles from using certain roads or temporally lower speed limits due to winter conditions. Always be vigilant for such restrictions. It’s challenging to drive in the winter, as the roads tend to be slippery and with limited visibility. When driving in such conditions, give trailers space, drive slowly, and pay attention to people.
  • During a normal workweek, rush hour in Erie begins at around 6:30am and peaks from around 7:30am to 8am. Congestion starts clearing slowly, and the traffic starts moving normally at around 8:30am. It then slows down again at around 5pm, comes to a standstill at around 6pm, starts moving by around 7pm, and clears around 7:30pm. To avoid wasting an hour or so in the traffic, leave earlier or wait until the traffic congestion clears after the peak hours. Avoid Interstate 90, the 1-79, and the freeways altogether during rush hours.
