6.0 GoodOct 13 2020
Pros: HYA Hertz were fine and helpful.Cons: PVD dropoff HERTZ was disinterested and didn't leave the booth. Perhaps afraid of catching COVID from customers? Prefer to have car checked by a liver person, to be sure NO damage, as you're holding $200 of my funds for just this reason. Don't hold the money if you cannot be bothered to look at the vehicle when it is returned. No damages from me, but I am disrespected and penalized for others' drivers damages when you cannot even be bothered to check -- Lazy personnel!
7.6 GoodSep 7 2020
Pros: Staff at Barnstable was very friendly and efficient. Drop-off in New York was a piece of cake.Cons: The car could have been cleaner and it smelled bad.
8.8 ExcellentAug 3 2020
Pros: Staff was super friendly
9.6 ExcellentAug 25 2019
Cons: I would like lower rates, not just with you but all other rentals.How abut a senior discount?
9.6 ExcellentFeb 22 2018
carrentals.com has issuesPros: Hertz was great, very friendly and helpful.Cons: carrentals.com who co-booked the rental with Kayak, did not provide Hertz with my contact information. This caused confusion when they tried to call me to tell me the location I had booked the car was closed and to head to a different location. I could not be reached so I showed up at the closed location and had to then catch a cab across town to the open location.
3.6 MediocreDec 31 2017
You get what they gotPros: Car was clean.Cons: Reserved and charged for a full sized car. Told I was getting a full size car at the counter. The only cars that had were compact. We had to sit with bags on our laps for 10 hours because they wouldn’t fit in the trunk or at our feet. Needed to travel that day. Have to see if I can get my overcharge back. Don’t trust that you will get anything other than what they have on the 6 car lot.
8.4 ExcellentNov 28 2017
Hertz was great, vehicle not so muchPros: Everything but the vehicle itself. Not a knock against Hertz. Just surprised a 2017 model was how inefficient and uncomfortable as it was.Cons: Surprisingly, the Yaris is not very efficient. You can only go 300 mi before needing to fill up. For a small car, I would expect a little better, especially with the "Eco" feature, whatever that means. Comfortability of the seats is real low. Definitely bring something for lower back support because this does not have it. You will be Hutton for certain within an hour of driving. This is just a review of the vehicle. Hertz was great!
4.0 OkayAug 6 2017
Inconsiderate, inconvenient, unprofessionalPros: The car was fine, once I got oneCons: I booked my car from the Hertz location in town (Hyannis) but when I arrived the location was closed and locked and there was no answer on their phone line. When I finally reached someone at their airport location they told me they didn't have my phone number and had no way of reaching me so they just closed the shop? I was shocked. My phone number was included in my booking and they had returned a call to my wife the day before the booking as well. I had to rent a car from the airport location, and return it there as well which was inconvenient and burned a lot of time during a busy time for me. I understand that sometimes things don't go according to plan, but this was not handled well at all.
6.4 GoodMay 17 2017
Pros: good car ...good priceCons: the car inside was clean..but with a very strong smell of cigarette.
4.0 OkayApr 20 2017
Cons: As soon as there is a problem. Both Kayak and Hertz dont take responsibilities. Kayak says Hertz has to fix it and Hertz says Kayak has to fix it. I am very angry. I wanted to change the drivers name in my car rental with plenty of days in advance, but it was impossible to do it because of this ping pong responsibilty game between the companies. At the end they made me pay more, the forced me to pay an additional driver.

7.2 GoodJul 7 2019
Pros: Cleanliness of vehicleCons: Drop off was challenging
6.8 GoodFeb 7 2019
Pros: The problem is: I’ve made my reservation and the amount was about 80.00$. Yesterday I got the bill, it was 192.74$. Something wrong here.
4.0 OkayNov 18 2018
Pros: Pleasant clerk
3.2 MediocreMay 30 2018
Cons: We returned the car via the after-hours drop-off - earlier than our rental was due. After checking our credit card statement we noticed that we had been charged an extra $100+ dollars. When I called to inquire, they had charged us for three extra days. Since there were no communications after the drop-off, we never would have known unless we checked the credit card statement. It felt underhanded and deceitful; I would not trust them again.
10.0 ExcellentOct 9 2017
Pros: All, nice car, good gas 29,000 on . Getting old for rent car?Cons: Smell inside maybe like smoking?
7.6 GoodAug 24 2017
Good overall experience! Would do again.Pros: I liked the Mazda! Very easy pick up and drop off.Cons: While the attendant at our specific pick up point gave detailed directions, the cars were in a very difficult spot to find and it took my way too long. They were not parked in a marked area and it was a busy port and confusing.
10.0 ExcellentAug 17 2017
Pros: I called and asked if I could drop the car off at Logan airport instead of Hyannis and they said - No problem. No extra fee.Cons: Nothing
3.6 MediocreAug 9 2017
Cons: According to my father, who dropped off since I had to catch a flight, Budget is trying to charge me SIX TIMES the rate I accepted through Kayak. I will have to spend hours today trying to rectify.

Pros: Staff was friendy and helpful. Car was clean. Location of agency inconvenient. NOT AT AIRPORT as advertised.Cons: Thrifty was not located where advertised. Advertised that it was at the airport, NOT TRUE. Agency is located about 1 mile away from airport. I had to get a ride to pick up carand was dropped off at airport where agency was supposed to be and isn't. Had to wait till manager could come and pick me up. Very inconvenient.
2.0 MediocreDec 2 2020

9.6 ExcellentSep 21 2020
Pros: incredibly painless process from pick up to return.Cons: Same old, same old. You get a cost estimate for the rental car, go to another site, and the cost of the car at the first site has doubled. Why is this considered good business?
7.2 GoodJul 31 2020
Pros: Customer service was very good overall.Cons: While the vehicle was clearly marked as a non smoking vehicle it was very obvious that one of the previous renters in fact smoked in the vehicle. I was hopeful the smell would dissipate but it never did over the 4 days we rented.
10.0 ExcellentJun 8 2020
Pros: Easy drop off. Excellent quality vehicle.
8.8 ExcellentMay 16 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and one reason I would come back. However, she was overwhelmed with customers. She was one person handling at least three customers while i was there. She maintained a friendly disposition though. In the middle of an epidemic, you need to be flexible and patient. The checkin process took a little while but given the environment, the staff handled it very well.Cons: See above

3.6 MediocreApr 26 2020
Pros: That the woman at the next counter was able to get me a vehicle despite reserving with Alamo, and there being no one at the Alamo counter.Cons: I reserved online, and was emailed instructions. I arrived at the airport location to pick up the vehicle only to find that there was nobody at the desk, and a sign up saying go to another location. The woman at the next counter said it was happening to a lot of people, and because I did not pre-pay, she was able to get me a vehicle from her company.

Finally hung up. Returned car around 7:30am with no one at desk. Waited around 5 or 10 minutes & no one showed up.Cons: CONTINUED FROM ABOVE QUESTION. Received a call back several hrs after I left car saying the front bumper was misaligned. Something that was not apparent to me when I dropped the car off. If the attendant had been there during business hrs we could have reviewed the car together. His word/mine

2.0 MediocreJul 10 2018
No Dollar counter at designated location in reservation!Cons: There was no Dollar counter (and thus available car) at the designated pick up location (Hyannis airport). Supposedly there was an error in accepting reservations before the counter was officially opened. And because it was the end of the July 4 weekend, there weren't any available cars on the entire cape. We proceeded to having to taxi, bus, and taxi with our entire family to Providence, RI (2 hrs trip) to rent a car and our entire trip took 12 hours- where about 4 hours of those were on account of the misleading reservation that you provided. It was an awful day and I do not plan on using Dollar again due to this experience.

Great in person, TERRIBLE ON PHONEPros: In person everyone as Avis was nice and helpful. They attended us quickly.Cons: We tried calling multiple times and had to wait 30+ min for them to find our reservation, and had both the customer service rep and his manager argue with us rather than explain the price difference when dropping off the car in a different location. Thy were unapologetic and talked to me as if I was stupid. Talking on the phone with Avis was a MISERABLE experience.

Top tips for renting a car in Hyannis

  • Car rentals in Hyannis give you flexibility and freedom of movement. Unlike with public transport, you don’t have to follow a specific schedule and route. For example, Sealine public buses operate between Wood Hole and Provincetown, meaning you have to be traveling that route at a particular time to use their buses. Car rentals in Hyannis help you move across the city, explore Cape Cod, Barnstable, and other surrounding neighborhoods any time you want.
  • Car Rentals in Hyannis is a well-established business with rental services in Barnstable Municipal Airport, while others are located within walking distance from the airport. Car rental companies such as Thrifty, Enterprise, Avis, among others, will deliver a car of your choice to the airport at the agreed time. Additionally, Hyannis city car rental companies such as National, among others, are located within the terminal of Barnstable Municipal Airport, next to the baggage claim area. Budget’s office is located at the main terminal with a pick-up station situated outside of the terminal. Dollar is situated along Barnstable road, 0.2 miles away from the airport, within walking distance.
  • Roads in and out of Hyannis city center are quite busy with motorists. Be careful, especially when following, driving next to or on adjacent lanes to loaded tractor-trailers and trucks towing boats. If it’s winter or the rainy season, be mindful and extra cautious when driving on icy roads and in the mornings when there is low visibility due to fog and heavy downpour. Watch out for icy roads in Northeastern Mass and along Route 128 and Route 3.
  • When exploring the vibrant Hyannis, try to avoid rush hour. There is minimal traffic from Sundays to Thursdays. The roads are generally busy on Saturday mornings and afternoons. To avoid getting stuck in traffic, travel either earlier or later in the day at hours before 8am or after 2pm respectively. The roads are also busy on Fridays, however, you can smoothly run your errands before 2pm and after 9pm.
