10.0 ExcellentMay 11 2021
Pros: We were able to upgrade for the same price.Cons: NA
2.0 MediocreMar 15 2021
Cons: Car was dirty, smoked in 3/4 tank of gas and the smart screen kept shutting off randomly (Nissan Armada)
8.0 ExcellentJul 6 2020
Pros: The pick-up area was severely understaffed, but the guys who were there were extra courteous and worked hard to help me quickly.Cons: It seemed the guy at the front desk didn't know what kind of van I would be offered. I don't know why the actual rental make/model has to be a mystery right up to the point of getting the keys. Also, the pick-up area was way understaffed.
10.0 ExcellentJul 4 2020
Pros: When they didn't have the car we requested they have us something better at a lower cost!Cons: They didn't check over the vehicle and document scratches.

10.0 ExcellentSep 16 2019
Pros: Helpful staff
9.6 ExcellentSep 15 2019
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off, Great staffCons: Worst part was the cars seats weren't the most comfortable but that isn't their fault
2.8 MediocreSep 4 2019
Pros: Not muchCons: I added two child car seats to my reservation and somehow that made the cost go from $250 to $350. The car seats were crummy and they made me install them myself. The front desk was understaffed so it took me a long time to get my car. The minivan seat didn't go back far enough so I was crammed in.
10.0 ExcellentAug 29 2019
Pros: Pick up process and the ability to choose the vehicle I wanted.Cons: N/A
10.0 ExcellentAug 24 2019

10.0 ExcellentFeb 2 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off were both super easy.Cons: I only wish the location was closer to my house. No big deal, though!
10.0 ExcellentJan 11 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly. They didn't have what I requested so I got a free upgrade. Return was seamless and quick.Cons: The pick-up explanation felt a bit rushed. He was throwing a lot of add-ons and numbers at me and I didn't really get a chance to process everything. The insurance I bought before pick-up was not through Enterprise. Theirs is different. That needs to made more clear.
2.0 MediocreDec 3 2020
Cons: The check oil light came on in the very expensive premium SUV I rented. I had to exit and stop at a gas station to check the oil. The oil was not even touching the full tube. It took two quarts of oil at $10 to make it right. Not a big deal, but a minor inconvenience. I thought Enterprise would simply reimburse me the $20 and make it right - they didn’t! A very pretty move... We were told by the represent that the only the store manager could make that call and he would call us to discuss. They never did. Terrible customer service a real shame to lose a customer over $20...
4.4 OkayNov 23 2020
Cons: Enterprise did not have reservation in their system even though reservation showed confirmed through kyak
3.6 MediocreNov 5 2020
Pros: Pick up was ridiculous then got stuck in a compact car even though we was okay with upgrading. Car was very dirty on the outside. Drop of was way easier of course. And the insurance don't waste your time buying it on kayak because they tell you it doesn't actually cover anything. Just ridiculousCons: Communication of details
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2020
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Drop off was very fast and friendly.
2.8 MediocreOct 26 2020
Cons: Pick up took forever. Car had hardly any gas in it when I picked it up. When I asked if I could drop off at airport you said you’d charge me $100 drop fee. I offered to pay $50 as a compromise but you said no way. Will not ever use enterprise again.
10.0 ExcellentOct 15 2020
Pros: everything was smooth and quickCons: none
4.4 OkayOct 11 2020
Pros: Easy processCons: The first rental I picked up started overheating 20 minutes after leaving the lot, I had to return the car after being told to go to a different enterprise to swap the car, no one had one available so I still had to return to the original site to swap out the car. Very time consuming.

8.0 ExcellentMay 11 2021
Pros: There is a national shortage of rental cars, even so, the staff was friendly. The car I requested was not available, but the replacement worked out even better and they honored the same price.
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
Pros: drop off easyCons: there was one guy checking us in there was a line of 15 people guy was slow a lady showed up she was much faster at getting people done.
6.0 GoodApr 19 2021
Cons: The car smelled like smoke and I went back to the counter to exchange it but they had a long line and I couldnt wait. It game me a headache every time I drove it. I know Budget has a fine for smoking should be a deterrent but make sure that the Budget employees who clean and check-in/out the car aren’t making it smell like smoke. A headache is miserable and was not appreciated especially for the steep price. Other than the smell, the car was very clean as fas as vacuuming, etc.

6.0 GoodJul 1 2019

5.2 OkayJun 6 2019
Pros: Indy staff was nice, but the vehicle I reserved wasn’t available.Cons: Memphis return staff was very unfriendly.
4.4 OkayMar 16 2019
Cons: I told them verbally that I deny all insurance coverages and when I signed it was there. I didn’t notice it till I got to my destination and reviewed the paperwork. I feel this was done purposely. They wouldn’t take these charges off. Be very careful what you are signing.

2.0 MediocreMay 4 2021
Cons: The kiosk screwed up my reservation which ends up with my being seriously overcharged for the vehicle. Would like to speak to somebody over the phone about this matter. Please reply with a name and contact information of someone that I can call. Thank you, Allan Thompson
6.0 GoodApr 22 2021
Pros: Drop off was fine and the car itself was clean and ready to go.Cons: When I arrived to get the car they said I had already picked it up but they had actually given the car I rented to someone else and it took longer than it should have to get me on my way. Also, they tried to charge me a deposit after I left and never discussed this with me.
2.0 MediocreApr 22 2021
Cons: I arrived to the airport 11:30pm with a reservation, and NO ONE was present at the booth or at the parking lot. I waited until almost midnight and had to talk to other company and rent a car there. Sixt was open and they made an excellent overtime work to get me a car. Once on my car I tried to call Hertz and of course no body picked up the phone, but put me on hokd saying "we currently have many calls, please hold".
4.0 OkayJan 11 2021
Pros: I was quote a total of $176.00 on the phone and was total that was all taxes and ete, then when I go to get the car now it's $201 because of taxes. I feel I was lied too.Cons: The car itself was not very clean and had dents on it, even the front license plate was bent out. Very disappointed in Hertz!!
8.4 ExcellentNov 5 2020
Pros: Yes
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2020
Pros: All staff in Indy airport were excellent, friendly and very helpful.
5.6 OkayOct 25 2020
Pros: Pick up was fine.Cons: my return near Loveland, Ohio was a place that afternoon was closed. Was not noted on my ticket. We had to drop off in another town, this was on a Saturday. When staff got there that next Monday they said it was returned on Monday. I called customer service (was end of September) and they have still not refunded my money. Today is Oct. 24th. The last time I talked to Customer service they said they were understaffed ! Time of a lot more calls !!!
6.4 GoodOct 18 2020
Cons: I was NOT notified that you were taking a 200 dollar deposit when I booked with Kayak. When will I get that returned to me?
2.0 MediocreSep 30 2020
Pros: Nothing.Cons: Ten days in advance, I paid and reserved an SUV for noon on 9/26/2020. When I arrived at 11:55am, I was told they had no vehicles available. I was told to come back later (2 pm) and they MIGHT have a car available then. Poor customer service. I had to change my plans and wait to pick up a vehicle from another company the next day as well as pay for another rental. I was told to call the Hertz customer service line to get a refund. I called and the representative told me they had no cars available at any of their locations. I requested a refund, I was told I would be refunded and emailed within an hour of the receipt showing the refund. That never happened. I am now disputing the charges with my credit card company.
2.8 MediocreSep 27 2020
Cons: We reserved a car about 3 hours before we needed it (emergency situation) and when we arrived they told us there were no cars!? If there are not cars, do not allow people to make reservations thinking they have a car! We would have gone somewhere else. Awful.

Pros: Great...courteous, convenient, quality Jeep provided! Great experience!Cons: No problems!
10.0 ExcellentSep 30 2019
Pros: yes, all went great and will for sure do it againCons: nothing
4.0 OkayJul 18 2019
Communication is keyPros: The customer service reps for the pick-up and return locations were very kind and helpful.Cons: Payless allowed me to reserve a car but didn't tell me that their shuttle wasn't working. I waited for 30 minutes before attempting to get a new car rental with Avis and noticed the sign regarding Payless customers speaking with Avis reps for car rental info. Then they didn't have the car I wanted and I had to drive a Jeep Wrangler in a storm. I will not rent from Payless again.
6.8 GoodJul 11 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpfulCons: Car wash not washed or vacuumed prior to my pick up. It had bird poop on hood, windshield, and other places.
5.2 OkayApr 8 2019
Pros: The person at the Washington Street pick up location was very nice and helpful. We also really appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of the shuttle driver.Cons: We were traveling as a family of four with a young child, an infant, and lots of gear. They sent us to pick up the car at a location far from the airport, but when we got there, the staff couldn’t understand why we had been sent there and told us we should have gotten the car at the airport.
4.0 OkayMar 26 2019
Pros: Pick up was a mess...got the car a little early and they charged us an entire extra day...after we called to make sure that wasnt the case before we picked it up. And. We even dropped it back off early too.
7.2 GoodMar 25 2019
Cons: Arrived at 10pm. No one at desk. Drag our luggage to garage. Guy out there says go back to Payless desk. No one there. Finally a stranger tells us Payless is a subsidiary of Avis- no one at Avis desk. Then find out it is alao A subsidiary of Dollar so they eventually helped us- took an hour !
2.0 MediocreFeb 26 2019
Cons: The woman at the counter told me I could not rent the car because her computer told her I had a rental that was still open with Budget. I called Budet they said no I didn’t, they spoke with her but to no avail, so I was unable to rent. The entire experience was terrible.

3.6 MediocreOct 11 2016
Pros: The price was reasonableCons: You get what you pay for. The van did not have a TV, power doors, the rear windows did not let down, and no rear back up camera. The staff was also unkind.
8.0 ExcellentSep 4 2016
Rental experiencePros: The friendly service.Cons: Wasn't told the office was closing early the day of my return. The time of pickup should've been the time I got possession of the van, which made ! my return 15 minutes early.
10.0 ExcellentAug 22 2016
Pros: Nice people, easy process. We were renting a van for a road trip and they let us our car there for a week while we took our trip in the rental. It's close to where the airport used to be, not so much to where the airport is now, but we weren't flying into town so that didn't bother us any.
10.0 ExcellentJun 13 2016
Pros: I liked the price, unlimited mileage, easy access to location near airportCons: I would have preferred a 15 passenger van with room for luggage behind the last row of seats, the back seat.
7.2 GoodJun 8 2016
customer service lies!!Cons: The employee at pick up was told that I was denying the insurance because I bought it online when I paid for the rental. I don't know if it was a mistake or not but I had to pay more at pick up and she said that it was a deposit and that it would be returned to my account upon drop off. When I dropped off the van I was told that it was for insurance and it would not be returned. I am still trying to get my money back for that through there 1-800 number.
10.0 ExcellentApr 4 2016
GREAT servicePros: Very affordable, easy and convenient
2.0 MediocreMar 24 2016
BAD EXPERIENCE; Not as advertisedCons: The rental agency is NOT in the terminal. Very misleading!!! After learning this fact, I rented from another agency actually located in the terminal. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
8.0 ExcellentMar 23 2016
Pros: The van was fine into that it was inexpensive and met our needs. We had a free ride to their location and back to the airport. No problems and all was as promised.

Cons: Was 2 yrs ago. Don't remember.
2.0 MediocreOct 13 2020
Cons: They cancelled 3 days before
4.4 OkayAug 22 2020
Cons: Avis tried to sell me on almost $1K worth of car insurance despite purchasing with Allianz via Kayak. They said they didn't see I had any coverage - I had an email saying otherwise. Extremely confusing and terrifying not understanding if I was covered or not. There was also only 1 person and a giant line started forming (it was 4pm...seem like a high traffic time so felt odd), so I didn't feel like I could even take a moment to better understand what I was paying for and waiving because I was with the ONLY person available. I was also sent to the wrong space number. And I wasn't told how to open the trunk of the car, which sounds stupid, but this one was hidden under one of the backlights (??? horrible design) so I stood at the car for 20 minutes pushing random areas of the trunk like a moron trying to open it. This is the 2nd terrible experience I've had with both Avis and Kayak. Last time ever - others beware. Check out other rental dealers
8.0 ExcellentMar 30 2020
Pros: Pick up and drop off was easy.Cons: Cleanliness of car upon pick up.
8.0 ExcellentJan 5 2020
Pros: The car itself was a wonderful ride.Cons: The pick up was a nightmare and it was all over me using a debit card. The first person I spoke to refused to help me because I didn't have a Major credit card even though it stated online you can use a debit card with a return flight. Finally, after an hour a nice lady helped me and got me out the door with my car.
5.2 OkayJul 20 2019
Pros: The car was great but they didn’t give it to me at my quoted price. I had to call customer service and am still trying to fix it.Cons: Horrible pickup experience!Waited an hour past my reso for the ONE worker to clean a car for the renter ahead of me, rent it to them, check in another group who just wanted to extend their rent, then go back to the garage &clean/vacuum the car I would be renting! Again, she was the ONLY PESON THERE!
5.2 OkayMay 7 2018
Dirty van!Pros: The Indianapolis airport rental car experience is always easy. No bus, no shuttle, no hassle. It's arguably the best big airport rental car experience in the country.Cons: We rented an Avis 12-person passenger van. It was filthy and had two major dents on the outside. I was embarrassed to put my guests in this van and was told I had no alternative van to choose from. For the price ($500+) for three days, I was extremely disappointed. Avis is better than this.
10.0 ExcellentApr 3 2018
ExcellentPros: Very efficient.Cons: Nothing
5.6 OkayMar 31 2018
Wrong vehicleCons: Reservation for a minivan turned into an SUV. The staff said that the 6 people + luggage would fit just fine. As we suspected, they did not. Our long planned one-way week-long road trip was ruined by Avis.
7.6 GoodJul 5 2017
Not available when expectedPros: When we were finally able to get the vehicle we had originally booked, it was clean, beautiful and more than we could hope for. We booked a premium SUV-Suburban and it came equipped with a dual DVD system, leather, trailer hitch, etc and was perfect for our trip with a family of 7 to Denver for a softball tournament.Cons: We were supposed to pick the vehicle up at 12. Upon arrival, they didn't have it and tried to give us a mini-van. Keep in mind, we are picking this up at an airport. He had someone drop him off, waited in line for 30 minutes and they didn't have the vehicle. later that day, they called and said they weren't sure they would get it in, and offered us a Tahoe. We needed the extra space in the back, and this isn't what we had booked. We declined, and called all other rental places to see if they happened to have a premium SUV available-there were none. Finally-they called around 4:30pm to let us know that it was available. If it weren't for this incident in getting the car, we would have said excellent. As far as the desk help-they couldn't have cared less that we were inconvenienced.

Pros: No staff at the counter when we arrived, a card said to use the kiosk and no kiosk to be seen. When we brought the car back there was no staff around and this was at 4:30 PM.Cons: Get anybody to be at your place of business or close down. And by the way we noticed that there was a big plug in the right rear tire. That is very dangerous in my opinion, and no spare along with no staff.
2.0 MediocreApr 9 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly getting the rental and something happened to their computer. Claimed my reservation was flagged and they wouldn’t be able to rent to me for the night.Cons: I rent from sixt regularly. There was no code or reason for the reservation being flagged. The agent couldn’t explain why.
6.0 GoodFeb 10 2021
Pros: No issues with staff friendlinessCons: They didn’t do the walk around the vehicle when I took it out and since I was in a hurry with lots of luggage, I forgot to do it. They just handed me the keys at the desk and pointed where the car is. But they walked around when I brought it back and claimed that a pebble off the street has chipped the paint off the hood.
8.0 ExcellentNov 30 2020
Pros: Our flight was changed to a later flight and SIXT was to be closed at that time. When I called ahead the agent went out of her way to set up a rental with Alamo, who would be available. She was so diligent, that I did not mind for the disruption. They earn big points for follow through in making sure we were taken care of.Cons: We would have liked to have rented from SIXT...
2.8 MediocreNov 1 2020
Pros: There was no one at the desk. Walked out to the garage instead of the person helping me they sent me back inside. Moreover I didn’t get the size car I requested and the car has low tire pressure and need and oil change. Because we kept getting notifications on the dash.
7.6 GoodOct 16 2020
Cons: The drop off experience is unlike any other… No one greets you to check you back in. So that was a little weird. We weren’t sure what we were supposed to do.
3.6 MediocreSep 12 2020
Pros: Car was decent.Cons: Returned 12 hours late and they basically doubled the price. Paid $400 up front for a week, returned a few hours late and saw ADDITIONAL $326 penalty charged to credit card.
7.2 GoodSep 8 2020
Pros: The staff at the Indianapolis airport was very good.Cons: I needed to return my car a day early. Once I made the reservation, I couldn't change it. Kayak sent me to Sixt; Sixt sent me back to Kayak. Eventually I found out the cost to amend the reservation was almost as much a day's rental. Next time I will go directly to another rental car company.
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2019
Pros: Nothing i plan writing a letter to headquarters staff needs to be firedCons: New staff
9.2 ExcellentMay 17 2017
It's good overallPros: The car is new, clean, in good condition.Cons: The pickup and dropoff place is far from the airport. I spent extra money on uber. But the employee said they open a closer agent and offer shuttle bus to the airport.

Top tips for renting a car in Indianapolis

  • Make the most out of your trip to Indiana’s capital and rent a car upon your arrival in Indianapolis. Explore the many attractions conveniently on your own four wheels, such as the Zoo, Lilly Recreation Park, or the Lucas Oil Stadium to enjoy a game. A rental car can give travelers the flexibility they need to explore the city and the surroundings in their own time and pace.
  • Indianapolis Airport is over 12 miles from the city center, so renting a car upon landing is the best option to start your visit quickly and free of hassle. The airports sports its own Transportation Center, in which eight rental companies offer vehicles in all shapes and sizes. Head to the first floor of the terminal garage to find your perfect car and take the I-70 W to get to the city center in less than 20 minutes.
  • Indianapolis is also known as the “Crossroads of America” since various interstates like the I-465, I-65, I-70, or I-865 run through the city and connect it with the surrounding areas. At first, the many exits can be confusing, so checking the route and traffic conditions before entering Indianapolis is advised. When entering roundabouts, remain in the outer lane, as it can be hard to reach the exit once driving in the inner lane. Also, cars inside the roundabout have the right of way, so don’t stop to let other cars in.
  • Rush hour usually hits Indianapolis between 7-9 am in the morning and 5-7 pm in the evening. As Indianapolis spans quite a big area, it can take more than half an hour to get from A to B without traffic, so planning at least one hour ahead is a good idea. Construction sites are also a common sight in Indianapolis and checking traffic obstructions beforehand helps navigate easier through the city.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Indianapolis for $36 or less
  • Book your rental car in Indianapolis at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Indianapolis are around 42% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • As winter can bring lots of snow to Indianapolis, a 4-wheel-drive car is the best option for a trip to the city. An SUV or minivan will provide great traction and enough space, but is still compact enough to cruise through the city without causing too many problems when it comes to parking and navigating narrow lanes. Bear in mind that, with plowing in winter, streets can become narrower as the snow piles up on both sides.

  • Unless posted otherwise, general regulations permit 15 mph in alleys, 25 mph in school zones, and 30 mph in residential areas. 60 mph is permitted on interstate highways in suburban areas and up to 70 mph is allowed on rural interstate highways. Especially in the winter, it is crucial to adapt the speed to the current weather conditions.

  • The average price for gas per gallon is around $2.30 in Indianapolis, but gas stations like Costco or Murphy USA offer rates as low as $2.20. When visiting Indianapolis in the cold season, make sure the tank is at least half full during the night; otherwise, the gas line is more likely to freeze up.

  • As long as there is no big event like the Indianapolis 500 on, parking in the city is not too difficult when compared to other big cities. On-street parking is metered in most places, but after 9 pm and on Sundays it is free. Alternatively, there are city garages and parking lots available, such as the City Park or Express Park Garage.

  • 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!).
