2.0 MediocreMay 7 2021
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.
2.0 MediocreJan 9 2021
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.
4.4 OkaySep 28 2020
Pros: Thought the price was good until I was told taxes weren’t includedCons: Terribly long line to pickup the car
9.6 ExcellentMar 15 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and the price was amazing.
9.6 ExcellentFeb 11 2020
Pros: Quick drop offCons: 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.
8.4 ExcellentDec 31 2019
Cons: Needed a corporate rate. Never received one. Was charged for 3 hours over. Would have been cheaper to keep for a 5 th day.

10.0 ExcellentSep 21 2018
Pros: The price was far cheaper than the competitors from the same airport. I will definitely use Kayak again!
8.4 ExcellentAug 31 2018
Pros: The car was nice; the access to the airport was good.Cons: A bit spendy, and the added fees were not evident prior to picking up the car.

4.0 OkayFeb 14 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly. With a line they came out and started working with people who weren’t at the counter yet to speed up the process.Cons: Asked for vehicle that fits 7 passengers with 4 suitcases, got a small Kia Sorento, with 7 people there might be room for 1 suitcase. Had nothing bigger for me so we were cramped the entire trip. There was dog hair all over inside and I had to ask them to vacuum because my family is allergic to dog hair. She said they had minivans available but would only give me one if the dog hair messed with my allergies after they vacuumed, which I wouldn’t know until I was already into my trip...
10.0 ExcellentJun 22 2019
Cons: Very easy and quick. Make sure you inspect, photograph every nick and ding prior to taking the car.
9.6 ExcellentApr 16 2019
Pros: Staff (becky) wonderful! Friendly and helpful and quick.Cons: I wished there were a better way to get from airport to Hertz location and back. Other than that I couldn't have asked for better.
3.6 MediocreMay 19 2018
DelayPros: Car was what we neededCons: Had to wait 1 1\2 hours to get the car we reserved. Very poor excuses why it was not available when scheduled. Extra $200 credit not explained until after rental was completed. We will not make the mistake of renting from Hertz again.
7.6 GoodApr 16 2018
Pros: Nice car but wasn't vacuumed recently so floors were a bit dirty on the inside.
2.0 MediocreOct 20 2017
TerriblePros: I went to pick up at and there were none available. Hertz employee said they overbooked and had no cars. They did not offer in any way to try and find me a car. Tough luck no car and no customer service to help out. On top of it I tried calling someone from Kayak and Hertz. Virtually impossible to get a live person on the phone.Cons: Horrible service. Hertz employees offered no help what so ever basically my unlucky day. Ruined our planned getaway.
10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2017
Free upgrade and car pictures taken in advancePros: I received a free upgrade from a compact vehicle (I believe that was the size I requested) to a crossover vehicle. Also, I was very pleased to see that the Hertz representative came with me outside to the car and was prepared to take pictures of any pre-existing damage on or in the car. In fact, the representative was ready to take pictures of anything I wanted documented on or in the car.
4.0 OkayJun 18 2017
Had to cancelCons: Had to cancel due to a family emergency and they refused to give me a full refund since it was under 24 hours.

Cons: The pick up process was ridiculous. It took 30 minutes for the shuttle to pick us up. Then once there it took another 30 minutes waiting in line to get the paperwork. Even with a parking lot full of cars we had to wait yet again for them to drive a car up from the recent drop off area.
5.6 OkayMar 28 2017

5.2 OkaySep 24 2016
Not the best car rental experiencePros: Help in Erlanger was great. Attendant was patient and checked to see prices for different drop off locations in Savannah.Cons: Was charged much more than the estimate at drop off. Car felt unstable on the road. Attendants in Savannah were not helpful when I inquired as to why I was charged more.

Slim PickensPros: Very friendly staff. Was very professional and tries to make the customer feel comfortable.Cons: Did not have available full size cars that I had requested. I was willing to go to nearest airport for full size car, but it would be much more expensive because of airport taxes. It was only five minutes away, but that much more? Ridiculous!
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2017
Don't rent from Enterprise!Pros: Nothing. The staff treated me poorly and with disrespect. I would NEVER rent from the again.Cons: I reserved a rental car and when I went in to get it I was told I couldn't rent it because I didn't have a credit card. Then I was told if I used my debit card (which I use for everything) I would need a copy of a utility bill. I then logged onto my account and produced a utility bill in my name and was then told it wasn't good enough, the bill had to have a zero balance. The bill wasn't due yet so I hadn't paid it. I have never been treated so poorly. I am convinced Enterprise does NOT want to honor these cheaper/bargain rentals so in turn they come up with any excuse in the book not to honor them. Shame on Enterprise for how they treat people.
10.0 ExcellentDec 30 2016
Pros: Tyler was very friendly and quick at getting us going even though they didn't have the car we thought they gave us a better car at same price. Will rent a car again from them.

Top tips for renting a car in Florence

  • Florence does not have an extensive public transport system, so you will want to rent a car in order to get around easily. The attractions in and around the city are fairly spread out, so look for car rentals in Florence and explore at your own pace. Many of the attractions within the city are parks and other outdoor activities, which you’ll need a car to get to. While in Florence, you will also probably spend a good amount of time around the Ohio River in or near downtown Cincinnati. Once in Cincinnati, there are a few shuttles available as well as a streetcar, but you’ll need a rental car to reach the downtown area.
  • The airport serving this area is the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. There is only one car rental company onsite at the airport: Hertz. It is located on level two of the terminal building near the baggage claim. You can catch a shuttle from door 10 at the baggage claim to the rental lots. Shuttles to the rental lots leave every 5 to 10min. However, there are many more companies that offer a pick-up service from the airport to off-site Florence car rentals, including Enterprise, Budget, and Avis.
  • Driving in Florence is pretty easy. As long as you pay attention to your fellow drivers and pedestrians, you will be fine. People in Florence generally obey the rules of the road but watch out for those pesky turn signals both in residential areas and on the highway. Pro tip: drivers in this area tend to struggle driving in the rain, so stay alert during bad weather.
  • Florence is largely a commuter city, with many people driving to and from places like Covington, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio, every day. This means that the morning and evening rush hour can cause massive pileups. The main highways (I-71, I-75, and US-275) get pretty clogged between 7am and 8am and 5:30pm and 6:30pm. If you’re in a rush, try not to drive on the highways during these hours. Winters in Florence are pretty mild, but in the case of snow, you’ll want to avoid the highways as there are lots of twists and turns.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Florence for $36 or less
  • Book your rental car in Florence at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Florence are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • On average a rental car in Florence costs $332 per week ($47 per day).

  • On average a rental car in Florence costs $1,424 per month ($47 per day).

  • Car rentals in Florence offer a plethora of options, so it can be hard to choose what you want. However, if you plan on exploring the surrounding areas of Covington and Cincinnati, we’d recommend going for a fuel-efficient compact car. There are dozens of designated public parking spots only for compact cars and you may end up needing to parallel park when in the city. This will also make everything easier when navigating narrow city roads and parking garages.

  • You’ll probably be using I-75 quite a bit during your time in Florence, so it’s important to know that the speed limit here is 65mph. It’s recommended to stay between 60 and 65mph as this highway is notorious for accidents and police officers are often out on patrol. Otherwise, speed limits can range from 25mph to 55mph depending on the area you’re driving through. As a general rule, always keep an eye out for signage indicating the speed limit.

  • Gas prices in Florence are pretty cheap compared to the surrounding areas, so you should definitely fill up your tank before heading into Covington or Cincinnati. Generally, prices for regular gas float somewhere in the range of $2.30-$2.80 per gallon. There are plenty of gas stations in Florence, but the Costco and Marathon gas stations are known to be among the cheaper options in the area.

  • Parking in Florence rarely causes much hassle. Hotels and other places of lodging typically have their own free parking, and many of the attractions in the city, such as parks and other outdoor locations, also tend to include free parking lots. If you’re looking to park and walk around a particular area, find public lots like that of the Florence Mall. This lot is free for up to 2h. The Turfway Commons lot is also free for up to 2h.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
