8.8 ExcellentDec 31 2019

2.0 MediocreOct 29 2019
Pros: Customer service was helpful with the refund.Cons: I arrived 10 minutes late for my reservation and the Hertz employee wouldn’t release my vehicle, despite the fact that I had prepaid. Customer service assured me that the reservation would be held for 2 hours, but the nearest Hertz location didn’t have any vehicles available.
9.6 ExcellentOct 18 2019
Pros: Staff was amazing at both pick up and drop off, a vast improvement from past experiences.
8.4 ExcellentOct 11 2019

5.2 OkayJul 28 2019
Cons: Staff was not friendly and very slow. Hours are not great, and they did not have a drop box.
2.0 MediocreJun 26 2019
There was no car ready for pick upPros: N/ACons: I went to pick up my rental around noon and was told they will call me when they had a care ready. I went to their office around 4:45 pm, knowingly they close at 6 pm. They still did not have a car ready. Then the lady offered me to burrow a car for 1 day and only a few hours. I was confused how would that benefit me as I had requested the car rental for 5 days to go on vacation with my kids. It was a frustrating experience over all.
6.0 GoodJun 17 2019
Cons: First car smelled of foul smoke, had to exchange it. They should never have given me a car that smells of smoke especially if their policy is no smoking in vehicles or a cleaning fee of $300 dollars is charged. Obviously, they pocketed the money and didn't clean the car

6.0 GoodApr 26 2021
Pros: Staff was very professional and efficient.Cons: The car was very worn, seats were stained, loud, uncomfortable. I thought I was getting a volkswagon jetta but ended up with a toyota corrolla. It looked like it had been just returned from a college road trip.
10.0 ExcellentJun 18 2020
Pros: All good..Easy airport..Cons: Directions didn’t really make it clear that the check in was in the airport..Had to call and get help finding where to pick up..
8.4 ExcellentDec 20 2019
Pros: The drop off was very easy and convenient. The staff member came right to my door.Cons: I reserved a compact car but the company only had large suv available. This was not reflected on the website.
9.6 ExcellentNov 6 2019
Pros: Yes
8.0 ExcellentSep 20 2019
Pros: Made us wait to exactly 6 to pick up the carCons: I had to put a quart of oil in the car and the service light came on while on the trip
6.0 GoodMay 23 2019
Pros: The Budget rental itself was fine.Cons: Misleading sign-up. Said I would not have to pay until at the rental car counter. But charged $12 immediately for Allianz, although it said $9. Thought it was for accident protection but it was for cancelation insurance or something. Will never use Kayak again for rental cars.
5.2 OkayApr 1 2019
Cons: The original pricyfor rental of a small suv for 3 days was $126.00, with bumper to bumper coverage was an $35 a day ( full comprehensive was $72 a day), oh and would you like road side assistance coverage ($10 per day) ripped off $273 for 3 days!
5.6 OkayFeb 21 2019
Pros: The gentleman that assisted me with exchanging a vehicle I was given was very kind and helpful.Cons: When I picked up the initial rental it had a flat tire, after I put air in the tire the flat tire indicator did not go off so I went back to exchange it for another vehicle. It would be more helpful if the vehicles are inspected prior to being issued to potential renters.
3.6 MediocreJun 19 2018
Cons: Needed to extend my contract. Was easier to return the car, and rent another from a competitor.
7.2 GoodMay 30 2017
Pros: Staff were very friendly and helpful.Cons: Car had been smoked in previously and still had a faint smoke smell

10.0 ExcellentMar 30 2017
Pros: great people at enterpriseCons: had to drive a beastly ford expedition
7.2 GoodOct 5 2016
Pros: The car we received was a perfect size. I love the gas mileage it got. We didn't have to spend a great deal of money on gas and time stopping to get gas. Helpful people at the airport and at the place we actually got the car from.Cons: We did not know that the car rental place was not at the airport and there was not a shuttle to the place we had to pick up our car. That was a big shocker. The young lady at the airport called the place that we rented the car from and we were well taken care of. The car windows were so dirty that we couldn't see out of them at night. We had asked the guy who cleans the car to clean them again but even his second round of cleaning was terrible. He acted as if we were putting him out.

10.0 ExcellentJun 19 2020
Pros: I actually flew to norfolk. Made the reservation for the wrong place. They helped me switch it without any trouble
6.0 GoodAug 14 2019
Pros: The staff at Ronald Reagan Airport was extremely helpful, and Ms. Benita's customer service skills are excellent.Cons: The car we reserved and expected to drive in Newport News was unavailable and we had to drive to DC to get one that would work for us, which was very frustrating and time consuming.
6.0 GoodApr 1 2019
Cons: I had reserved a small or compact car (I hate driving large vehicles on unfamiliar roads). They offered me an F150 (large pickup) or a van! They were good enough to at least get me a large SUV, which was less of a pain but far from what I had reserved.
6.0 GoodOct 17 2018
Pros: Car was good. No hassle picking upCons: Return. There were three staff members visible around the counter all of whom were talking to someone on cellphones. I had to wait 15 minutes before one young lady was kind enough to talk to me
2.0 MediocreSep 23 2018
Non cancel cancelCons: Hotwire said i can cancel any time. When i tried to cancel online an hour before pickup time, it says cancel window has expired. I did not call them because i am hard of hearing and i have better things to do

8.8 ExcellentApr 12 2016
Tire pressureCons: Low tire pressure alarm sounded on the second day of our rental. I checked the air pressure in all four tires - over 50 psi in three tires and less than 25 in the fourth. Obviously, this is a safety issue that could have resulted in a blow out. Avis' staff should perform simple checks like this (also oil and other fluids) as a part of their prep.

Top tips for renting a car in Newport News

  • It is highly recommended that visitors rent a car during their time in Newport News, as that really is the only way to get around the city. Public transportation is quite lacking and only offers limited service during evenings and on weekends. For instance, if you want to visit Sandy Bottom Nature Park, it is just a 10-minute drive of 4.7 miles. On the bus, however, it can take upwards of 30 minutes.
  • If you are like most arrivals landing at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport, then you are likely planning on picking up a rental car there. For such travelers, you can find the rental car desks located in the baggage claim area.
  • Due to the suburban nature of Newport News, pedestrians are very common throughout the city. As a result, jaywalking is also a normal occurrence and drivers should keep their eyes open for any unexpected street crossers. Jaywalking occurs most often on Newport News’ smaller streets and in residential areas.
  • Newport News, while not on the same level as neighboring Norfolk, still has its fair share of rush hour traffic, particularly during the work week. On most days, the morning rush hour usually picks up at around 6:30-7:00 a.m. and cools down by around 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush comes at around 4:00 p.m. and lasts until 6:00 p.m. As far as roads to avoid, the US 17, I-64, and I-664 bridges are major bottlenecks during rush hour and drivers should time their crossings accordingly to avoid the traffic.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Newport News for $39 or less
  • Book your rental car in Newport News at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Newport News are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Drivers in Newport News can expect to pay an average of $1.95 per gallon of gas, which, for U.S. gas prices, is on the lower end of the spectrum.

  • Parking garages and private parking lots are the main go-to option for drivers in the downtown area of Newport News. On-street parking is available throughout the area, but it can be difficult to find an available spot during business hours. Aside from parking garages, most businesses will also have parking available for customers. Paid parking in Newport News typically starts out at $1.00 to $2.00 per hour.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge.
