Our flight into Omaha was delayed and we didn’t arrive until after the Alamo rental counter closed at 1:00 AM but the rental agent that helped us in the garage with pickup and checkout was absolutely FANTASTIC! He couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful.

2.0 MediocreJun 29 2021
The rental office closed at 1 am, and our flight was delayed from an original arrival time of 12:30. I had called them ahead to explain that my initial arrival was changed to 12:30 AM, and they didn't tell me that the rental counter closed at 1 am. This left not only me but other stranded at the airport, and I had to take a Lyft into town an hour away.

4.0 OkayDec 17 2020
Staff was great on pickup. I picked it up at night and walked around the car to inspect for dings. I did not notice a small ripple in the front panel due to the darkness. When I returned the car they accused me of producing the damage. I wish there was a camera system or something that could end this subjective inspection process with rentals. It’s too difficult on business travel to manage a faulty inspection process. What’s to stop rental companies from sneaking in these minor ripples that will go unnoticed for night pickups and stick consumers with faulty claims?

9.6 ExcellentOct 12 2020
Staff were great and super helpful. Rental counter was quick and courteous. Return process was super fast and easy. The car functioned great, was upgraded with all the newest features and was great on gas.The inside of the car was super clean, but there were some weird marks on the driver's side window that interfered with visibility a bit. Ultimately wasn’t a huge issue but maybe would have taken the time to remove that before renting it.
3.2 MediocreSep 17 2020
I chose the option where the company chooses the car. They put me in a Hyundai Accent that wasn’t clean at all and had 40,000+ miles on it. I took pictures before of the outside because it was all dinged up and dirty. When I dropped off the car they were looking for r the outside and commented about dents and dings on the outside as if I did them. I showed them the pictures I took and they stopped asking. Poor service. Felt taken advantage of since I choose the option for them to choose the car even though the price was on a couple dollars less then the normal price.
8.4 ExcellentAug 11 2020
Pick up was a bit of a challenge, O’Hare is a bit of a maze to get to the car rentals. However the car was super clean and new, and the drive went without a hitch! The staff were friendly and helpful, the underage fee was higher than listed online (around $40) but overall not too much pricier than a flight.If additional fees were listed online it would make for fewer surprises at checkout.

Cleaning of the vehicle could have been done. The car wasn't washed (not the end of the world) but was a good representation of the inside. I needed up cleaning the inside of the car myself. I can't imagine any COVID cleaning protocols were followed in-between rentals of this car.
2.0 MediocreJun 30 2021
Booked at reservation for 5:00pm pickup. Arrived exactly at 5:00. Light out, doors locked, place closed. Paper sign on door said closes at 5:00. Why did they let me reserve for 5:00 pickup? No call, no text, no email. You kind of think Hertz would do better. The system (and employees) has to know we were picking up at 5:00
6.0 GoodJun 10 2021
The vehicle was clean.Agents tried to say we rented a car and not an SUV. Then after having to show the the receipt they agreed to giving us what we paid for. Next they made my wife buy insurance even though we bought insurance when we booked the vehicle. Again I had to show receipt and demand a refund. Not sure if they were trying to swindle people or if they were just incompetent.
2.0 MediocreApr 12 2021
The rental office was closed for the day. I scheduled a pickup for Noon, and the office closed at noon. I arrived at 12:05, and wasn't able to get my rental and needed to book a second rental for my trip. Why would you allow me to book a rental pickup at the time when the office is closed???

First, their computer didn’t work at check-in. Then, it was a typical “bait and switch”. I reserved a “standard” size vehicle (advertised as a Chevy Malibu or similar) but got a Kia Soul, which I hate.The car wasn’t clean, the gas tank was only half full when got it. Never again with Dollar!
8.0 ExcellentOct 30 2019
Drop off was not staffed at the early hour of 7:00 pmTaxes and government fees add more than 50% to the cost of the rental car in Omaha. Not Dollar's fault but not a good value.
8.8 ExcellentOct 28 2019
We had the manager choice deal, and it would seem to me that it would be more cost effective to give us an economy car rather than a minivan. They said they were short on cars, so we were offered the van or the option of upgrading to get a car.

Staff didn't pay attention to my reservation on KAYAK, and were clueless about the insurance coverage I purchased from KAYAK. They overcharged me, even though I gave them all the reservation number, insurance policy number and overall charges and left it in their drop box with the keys to the vehicle. I will never rent a car from that location again.Everything. I even called the Enterprise location after I booked the reservation on KAYAK, and they seem to have had that information on Tuesday (the 12th) but didn't have a clue by Friday (the 15th) which was the pickup date. I wasn't instructed on my follow up call on Tuesday that any paperwork or confirmations were needed. Sad state of affairs, I would think the Enterprise District Manager for that location would be on top of those types of errors.

The time it took to get the car was long. The windshield had a chip in it underneath the windshield wiper, of which the guy cleaning the “bugs” off the windshield would have seen and it split and they are trying to charge me for it although I was told I would not be charged and a note would be put on the account.

You allowed me to book a pickup/drop off time that was at the end of that location’s normal working hours. They changed my pickup and drop off location. To the airport. The airport location completely changed my reserved vehicle type to something “not similar” and less fuel efficient.Fulfill any one of the promises made in the reservation... changed pickup location, wrong car type, changed drop off location. Clerk was rather rude when I asked why I couldn’t have what I reserved.

The lady at the desk was nice but I was very unhappyThis is the second time that Budget has not had the car I requested. I was going to see my 95 yr old dad. I ordered a family type car. The did not have one. I was offered a Jeep Cheroke or a Pickup truck. I told them my dad could not get in or out. So I ended up with a Dodge Charger. Not what I want

Staff was extremely helpful. No frowns. No hassles. Just customer-service oriented.We arrrived at the Avis/Payless counter at 6 pm. Only ONE rep for both companies. When we checked our car for scratches, there were several, so we had to flag a Payless rep. She was excellent - immediately went to get another car and made sure we were satisfied. HOWEVER, the car obviously hadn't been washed. We didn't mind, but. . .

The vehicle was awesomeI was late, called 7 times to the local branch, but it kept going to the call center. The call center didn't have the answer and ended up costing me double because nobody could answer a phone call. Did talk to a manager that told me they were closed and have it returned by opening og the next day, that was a lie so now I will be filing complaints with every office i can, starting with bbb and file a claim with to get a refund.
6.0 GoodAug 17 2020
Counter Staff was amazing. Very customer oriented at the time of rental.Car smelled of marijuana once it sat out in the sun. I called this in Day 1 after the car was sitting in the sun and the smell was overwhelming. As soon as I got through being on hold the representative told me they noted the smell to my account and then they hung up. I wanted to swap cars, but I did not have time to call back as I was travelling on business. Then when I returned the car they emailed me my receipt. Upon review of the receipt I was charged for a tank of gas when I had turned the car in with a full tank. Called the local number on my receipt ... Put on hold..... Then hold again for them to verify .... "They made a note and corporate would email me in 3 to 5 days, the charges are already in." So in a nutshell dirty car and overcharged.
10.0 ExcellentJul 27 2020
The new Nissan Pathfinder was the best rental car I've driven, great choice! I needed something bigger than a mid-size SUV, but I didn't want a big Tahoe or Suburban, so the Pathfinder was the perfect size and a wonderful leather interior. I'll be back hoping to get the same in the future!Nothing!
9.2 ExcellentJul 20 2019
Desk agent was knowledgeable, professional, and couteous with no pressure or upselling. Return check-in very quick and Return agent pointed out that since I filled up the tank which was higher that when I picked up the vehicle i would receive an adjustment at the "counter" so I was not over chargedPrice seemed unusually high @$89/day

Lost a future customer over $5I picked Payless because they said they were based at the terminal (Omaha) and the others mentioned a shuttle. Payless had a desk at the terminal but it was not staffed and instead had directions to the same shuttle as all of the others. Plus it is a bit of a pet peeve when customer service agents finish their conversation with each other before attending to the needs of the customer. Also I had asked for an extra hour on the rental to finish up my conference for which I was willing to pay the hourly rate of $5. They said if I was 1 minute over I would have to pay for an extra day. I left my conference early to get it there on time (3 minutes early). Instead of them getting a little extra for the hour, they got no extra, and they got one less customer for life over $5.

What could have been better was the fact that I only had a choice between a Jeep or a Chevrolet truck and I'm a short and round person and my husband has bad knees. I chose the Jeep thinking it would be easier to get into, in which it wasn't.

Pick up was fine, the late night staff was nice. The car was the right size for our needs.We reserved a luxury vehicle and got a full size vehicle. The radio mechanics didn’t work, the car was filthy on the outside, there was a star in the windshield and other body damage that was not gone over with us at pick up. Drop off was complicated after hours. I didn’t have the paperwork to fill out with me so had to leave the garage and find my uber who was circling the airport waiting for me and then take it back up. There was no pen provided to fill out this mandatory paperwork so I had to scrounge one up. Just a disappointing experience overall.

I rented the car on line for a stated rate. When I arrived at the counter I was charged a higher rate. The counter attendant pointed out that the online vendor did not charge enough in fees. When I pointed out that, that was not problem and that I should get the lower rate, she told me that she would send my appeal to a supervisor for review. I received an email the following day with a commitment from the supervisor to honor the online rate. So while it worked out well, I was surprised by the disjoint between the online quote and the Thrifty direct price.

Top tips for renting a car in Omaha

  • Omaha largely grew to be what it is today during the Automobile Era and, as a consequence of this, it is most suited for personal vehicles. Visitors will be best off renting a vehicle, as public transportation is not widely available, and it is almost always much quicker and more efficient to drive. To give an example of this, driving from downtown Omaha to the northside of town (7 miles) takes just 11 minutes by car but takes 40 minutes by bus.
  • If you are like most travelers, you will probably be picking up your rental car after landing at the airport. In the case of travelers landing at Omaha Eppley Airfield, there are 24/7 shuttle buses that will take you from the Arrivals Terminal to the adjacent rental car areas.
  • Winter in Omaha can bring piles of snow that, while beautiful and great for snowballs, aren’t the best for inexperienced drivers. However, it is easy enough to drive in; you just have to drive a bit slower than normal and with a bit more care. One thing to take note of is that it will take longer to break and come to a stop in snow compared to normal conditions.
  • Omaha’s rush hour starts in the morning around 7:00 a.m. and runs until 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon it picks up again around 3:00 p.m. and finishes up after 7:00 p.m. Though this is a lengthy amount of time, congestion isn’t actually too severe, so trip times are only moderately impacted. The Kennedy Freeway is often one of the more impacted areas during rush hour so it is best to avoid it, if possible.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Omaha for $61 or less
  • Book your rental car in Omaha at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Omaha are around 46% cheaper than other car types, on average
