May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

I hated literally everything about this rental

Cons:

When I select a specific airport I do not expect the reservation to be switched to a satellite rental office 30 minutes away from the airport and then be told by your customer service that there is absolutely nothing that can be done. Time, effort, money, and stress added to travel is not something that is needed. In the event I consider using your services again I’ve requested friends to brain me with a heavy object. This state would be preferable to trying to the nonsense I experienced.

Pros:

I like the offer of picking up the vehicle a day early for free and the free upgrade.

Cons:

Cleanliness of the vehicle...smelled of smoke and no covid19 assurances as in the commercial, in fact it wasn’t even addressed by the agent until I asked.

Pros:

Car rental staff was nice, the location can't be beat--just get off the down escalator right by Baggage Claim and there it is!

Cons:

Renters were at the mercy of whoever looked at the long list of reservations and did not authorize delivering more cars for rental until an SOS from the desk staff. Waited over an hour for cars to be available so they could rent them--NOT professional at all and very unhappy customers!

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

When I arrived to pick up the car, the car I reserved was available. I was informed that I could accept a two-car downgrade or an upgrade to a 15 passager van. Needless-to-say, neither was acceptable. It took nearly 45 minutes to convince the agent to request a car trade with one of the other ren

Cons:

trading a car with one of the other rental car agencies, in order to honor the rental agreement should have been the 1st option. I was eventually given a Malibu instead of the premium vehicle that was listed on my reservation. Additionally, the car's gas tank was only 3/4 full. Better service.

Pros:

The only positive was I didn't have to wait to present my ID and form of payment.

Cons:

After making a reservation, no car was available at the location I specified. They ask if I would mind driving 30 minutes away, to the airport, to pick one up. I was finally able to get the car I reserved by driving to another location anyway. Fortunately, it was only about 3 miles away.

We were expecting a midsize vehicle, but when we arrived all they had was a minivan. I was concerned about it getting terrible gas mileage and being bigger than we needed, but it worked out alright. It was comfortable for the 2 weeks we had it and the gas wasn't as good as we would have liked, but we enjoyed the space and comfort for the amount of time we spent on the road.

Cons:

I reserved a car online, and flew 800 miles . But when i arrived they told me i was not eligible to rent because of a deductible in 2004. Something I still have no knowledge of. Also poor customer service in Huntsville. Alabama.

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

The Lin’s seemed to move slow when I was picking up the car. There was only one person in front of me and it took a good 10 minutes to get me through the line. I’ve always thought car rental companies should pay attention to that metric. The last thing someone wants to be doing after a long airline flight is wait in a slow moving line.

Pros:

Nothing.

Cons:

The vehicles in my area were advertised falsely. When I arrived to Alamo to pick up the vehicle I found on Kayak, they told me no cars had been available for weeks and had no idea why I found otherwise. Kayak should follow this up. These types of issues can create unnecessary stress for travelers.

We had a 6:30 pm pickup. We waited over an hour in the heat to get the car. They only had one person scheduled to clean the cars and he was working for three other car rentals in the airport. Very unsatisfactory!

Top tips for renting a car in Huntsville

  • Rent a car for your stay in Huntsville to make the most of your trip and explore everything the city has to offer, like the US Space and Rocket Center or the many land trusts dotted around the city. Seize the opportunity to also check out the surroundings along the Tennessee River like Point Mallard Water Park, which is a half-hour drive from Huntsville’s center.
  • Huntsville International Airport is located 13 miles southwest of the city center, and the quickest way to reach the city is by renting a car on the airport grounds. The airport boasts various onsite rental agencies like Budget, Enterprise, and Avis, which offer cars for every taste and need. To be in Huntsville within less than twenty minutes, head to the I-565 E when leaving the airport.
  • Winter can bring plenty of snow to the state of Alabama, and Huntsville’s roads can be dangerously slippery during these months. With proper winter tires and defensive driving, travelers should, however, face no problems with their rental car. Ensure there is also an ice scraper in the car to clear windows and mirrors after a frosty night.
  • Huntsville is one of the bigger cities in Alabama, and traffic congestions are regular companions of everyday driving. If you are not keen to be stuck in traffic jams, refrain from driving through the city between rush hours, which are usually in the morning between 7 and 9 am and from 5 to 8 pm in the evening. Especially the arterial interstates 565 and US-431 face increased traffic during these times.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Huntsville for $66 or less
