The people at the place we’re so nice and helpful. The car however smelled of smoke. The car had been cleaned and smelled strong of air freshener until the 3rd day when that wore off and the smell of stale cigarettes took over the car.

I rented a car for a week from the Green River road Evansville Indiana location and I was told by a rep that if I returned the car earlier than when my reservation ended I would be reimbursed for the days I did not use the vehicle. I returned the car on the 3rd day of my rental and I was charged the full amount. If I would have known I would be charged the full amount I would have let the rental sit in my driveway for 4 more days. I told that to the person I returned it to and she said yeah that would be smarter "but there is nothing she can do about it now" because she had already processed the return. I asked if there was someone else I could speak to and she gave me customer services number. I called customer service on Monday (11/8) and they told me they could adjust my bill to the daily rate for a compact car but they could not do the refund until I was fully charged so to call back after Wednesday. I called back Friday (11/12) and they are now saying my bill should be even more than what I paid for it. If that was the case why would it make any sense for them to tell me to call back so I can be charged even more for returning a car half a week early so Hertz can benefit from charging me the full week and charging whoever else they rent it to that day. I am very unhappy with the misinformation I was given and how I was yanked around and wasted my time. I want to be reimbursed for the 4 days I did not use the rental car which is over half of my rental agreement. This is deceitful and Hertz is now able to use the vehicle for other customers that I returned early only at a cost to me. I am very unhappy with how I was treated as a Gold Plus Rewards member. I will not be using Hertz again.

May 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

Rules of car rental were stressed upon check-in along with cleaning fees associated for smoking or pet in the car. My mother had just been hospitalized and I was in a hurry to begin my 310 mile trip. The car smelled rancid but I didn't have time to do anything else. I drove with windows cracked open and at times all windows all the way down. Very strong cigarette smoke permeated the car. Obviously it had not been cleaned enough after the last rental. Upon return of the car and discussion with Mgr, a discount of one day's rental was refunded. Cars that smell like that shouldn't be on your lot!!!

Staff was not friendly. No one was there when I dropped it off and it was early i n the evening.

The car was in a different spot and we had to hunt for it. When we got to Nashville the next day our contract had not been entered properly and the office had to try to get it released. It is good we weren't in a hurry.

Jun 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

I needed to rent a car on a Sunday morning because I was involved in an auto accident on Saturday night, far from home. Avis offered the best prices to get me home (in Kansas). The process was easy and relatively affordable compared to the other outrages quotes from Enterprise.

Cons:

I wish the company would have opened before noon. My drop off experience was frustrating, as well, but that has nothing to do with Evansville.

The easy drop off and pick up. At drop off I just handed them he keys, they didn’t want to look at car, check mileage.. that was unusual and a little weird at first. I even dropped it off a day earlier that needed. So if that’s the new way of dropping off 🤷‍♀️

The front desk agent was so slow. Received the car without a full tank of gas and with all 4 tires low air. Received a Kia Soul . I hate the way it handles and has no pickup on the highway. Overall a bad experience. I will not be renting from this company again.

The price was what I was offered, it is the add on fees that jacked it up. Well have to say it was just right for what I needed. The pickup/dropoff was a little walk to get to, but it was an airport.

Top tips for renting a car in Evansville

  • Located in Southwestern Indiana, Evansville, or “River City” as the city is also known is the medical, commercial, and cultural hub of Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois states. Evansville Airport (EVV) is the closest airport to the city, located approximately 8 miles from the city center. Once you get to Evansville airport, you can pick up your cheap car rentals in Evansville and drive to the city center via US Hwy 41 S. With your Evansville car rentals, you will take approximately 20min to drive to the city center from the airport. Several car rental companies have stations at the airport, including Budget, Avis, and Hertz.
  • There is plenty of attractions to visit with cheap Evansville car rentals. You can start your tour at Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve and stop by the Mesker Park Zoo for a glimpse of some of the park's native animals like the bald eagle, colobus monkeys, and giraffes. To the south of the city center is the USS LST Ship Memorial. Here, you will find a fully operational World War II navy ship and get a hands-on experience with an anti-aircraft gun.
  • Winter in Evansville is characterized by heavy snow. Thus, if you are planning your visit to the city during those winter months, then it helps to acquaint yourself with important driving tips. For starters, ensure that the car you are renting for your Evansville tour has the right snow tires. While driving in snow, use your head, not your feet, especially when your visibility is poor, and the roads are wet and icy. Slow down when approaching off-ramps, intersections, shady spots, or even bridges. Allow a safe distance between the vehicles. Finally, do not drive on cruise control. Rather, be in control of the vehicle at all times.
  • Getting a rental car can significantly ease your movement in Evansville. You'll be able to move from one place to another without the stress that is accompanied by buses or taxis. You'll also be comfortable and in control of the schedule that you want to keep during your stay in the city. With a vehicle from car rentals in Evansville, you can go as close as Mesker Park Zoo, which is a short drive away from town, or go as far as Jasper, which is about 63 miles from Evansville, without having to wait on anyone. Jasper is home to the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame, and if you’re a baseball fan, this might be a place you'd want to visit.
  • When you land at the Dress Regional Airport (EVV), you'll find there are different car rental agencies to choose from, including Enterprise, Budget, Avis, Alamo, Hertz, and National. The rental car counter is on airport premises, and you'll find it at the baggage claim area. The rental cars are parked outside the baggage claim, so once you pick up your key from your Evansville car rental of choice, you can drive off to the city.
  • It is illegal to use handheld devices while driving in Evansville. This law's violators can be handed a Class C infraction, which is punished by paying a fine of up to $500. Some laws limit drivers from operating any vehicle in reverse unless done without interfering with traffic and within reasonable safety.
  • Expect heavy traffic in Evansville, especially during the morning rush hour, which spans between 7am and 8am. If there's any construction underway in the city, it might make navigating some routes more difficult compared to others. One of the more dangerous intersections in the city where you should be careful is the Green River Rd and Vogel Rd intersection, especially when turning on to Green River. Traffic becomes a gridlock at the intersection between Vann Ave and Lloyd Expressway, so give yourself extra time if you must commute. Be careful when driving at the intersection between Oak Hill Rd and Lynch Rd as it's prone to accidents.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Evansville for $66 or less
  • Book your rental car in Evansville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Evansville are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average
