Pros:

Staff unable to check whether I could use AARP or AAA discounts at time of check-in. Said I needed a “code.” Or maybe a secret handshake?

Cons:

Rental vehicle did not have a snow brush snd it snowed 2 of the 5 days I rented the vehicle. Come on - it’s Minnesota March weather madness! I was clearing dude windows with my forearms!

Cons:

I drove from Minnesota to California which included very smoky areas near fires in Oregon and California. I wanted to make sure I had a good spare tire before I left. There wasn't a spare tire. The attendant said the rental cars don't have spares. He gave me a number to call if I needed assistance. The problem is there was no cell service in many areas. Getting a flat tire in the fire ravaged areas would have been very dangerous possibly deadly to my health. Spare tires should be in each vehicle!!

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Pick up was simple. Counters were understaffed but our flight was delayed so we were over an hour late. So not their fault. Drop off was very easy.

Cons:

Better communication as to where to pick up the car. We went to the other side of the airport only to find we had to go to the other terminal. After a long flight last thing my 9 year old and I wanted was to walk to the rental counter area to find it was closed with signage we had to go all the way to the other side of the airport to pick up our rental.

Mar 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

I got a letter 3 weeks after the return that claimed I smoked in the car and there was excessive smoke smell. I did not smoke, never have smoked in my life. They are charging me $450 and I have petitioned their customer service multiple times. They keep escalating it to another bureaucratic level of the business to hand off the problem to the next customer service representative. I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and I will be filing a consumer fraud report to the Attorney General's Office of Illinois. This company has absolutely committed fraud and is trying to find a way to book extra revenue. I will never do business with the Avis Budget group (the company that owns Payless) ever again.

Jun 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was friendly and professional at both pick-up and drop-off

Cons:

At pick-up they switched to a different vehicle which was an "upgrade" to a mid-sized SUV for the same price. Appreciated that, but once I left MSP I realized that the vehicle had not been washed or re-filled with gas, and so the Fuel light went on almost immediately (36 miles left). So I had to immediately gas up. The net of this was that I returned the vehicle with 150 miles left, and therefore bought more gas than I actually used. I documented the issue on the day of pickup and took a photo of my gas purchase...so at least I didn't get hit with a fuel surcharge. But it would have been better for things to have been done right from the start.

Mar 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was friendly, especially the drop-off staff. Car was clean and operated well.

Cons:

Pickup process was a bit slow. The counter guy didn't actually call for the car until I arrived at the counter. It obviously wasn't ready when I got there.

Sep 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Pick up and drop off were AWFUL. Told they would bring the car to us. 10 people standing around waiting. Took over 30 minutes to get the car. Return just as bad. Numerous people just walked away leaving their cars as there was NO ONE there to check them back in.

Cons:

Pick up and drop off experience. Need more people to do this. Not enough staff .

9.2 Excellent

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The pick-up and drop off was very convenient. There was less of a line than other vendors, and only a short wait for the car to be made available. Location of pick-up and drop off very convenient at the airport.

Cons:

They didn't specify drop off details, we just assumed it was the same location as pick-up. With the construction it's a maze to get in and out of rental location with the car.

Nov 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Yes, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I think that the wait in line was longer than it needed to be. But overall the experience was pleasant given that I wasn't in a hurry.

Cons:

I think that the pricing should be more upfront and transparent. And after all of the fees nearly $400 was a little steep for only two days with the car. Finally, the pick up area was a valet and it wasn't well marked where I should wait. Given that the temperature was in the teens, that was an important point.

5.2 Okay

Cons:

When I got there they didn't have the cat I reserved. They ended up getting me something that could work but it was $250 more. Also if you're coming to the airport to rent a car but you didnt fly in it's a nightmare to get there.

Super easy to change my trip and drop off early at a different location, that was extra convenient for me

Cons:

Time to deliver rental car could have been quicker, did not know that I would have to be preferred or whatever it’s called to have the vehicle ready to go. Our flight was delayed and if the rental car was ready to go we would have saved a valuable 10-20 minutes

I made a mistake and ordered the cat a week early. Rental would have been 185 dollars. They charged me 100 bucks for a car I never even got. Cancelled reservations more than 24 hours in advance. Hertz charged me more than half 100 bucks. Hertz - rip off artists. Hertz - rip off artists.

I am very disappointed and was quite surprised to see the amount on the emailed receipt.

Top tips for renting a car in Saint Paul

  • With possible snow in the forecast from October to May, car rentals in Saint Paul are optimal for getting around the city to ensure you are not impacted by public transit delays. Even without snow on the ground, a rental car provides access to routes that are not provided by public transit, such as a scenic drive along the Mississippi River.
  • There are stations for Saint Paul car rentals at both terminals of the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport (MSP). In Terminal 1, they can be found in the Silver Parking Ramp at ground-level, accessible through the entrance under the Prince mural or via underground tram. For Terminal 2, stations are located in the Ground Transportation Center, across from the terminal itself. They are on the ground level of the Purple Ramp.
  • Both Saint Paul and nearby Minneapolis are popular for cyclists, even in the winter. When turning right or merging lanes, double-check your mirrors and blind spots to make sure you are not cutting off or endangering a cyclist. Be mindful of bike lanes and use caution when sharing the road. Drivers are not allowed on the light-rail tracks, unlike in other cities. Train operators will not hesitate to use their horn to inform you of this rule.
  • Winter driving in Saint Paul, particularly from January to March, can be a challenge for inexperienced drivers. Black ice can appear on occasion, which is nearly impossible to spot. During rush hour, from 7:30 to 8:30am and 4:00 to 6:00pm, you might see traffic agents giving signals in busy intersections. Follow these commands instead of the traffic lights and use caution when navigating around them.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Saint Paul for $67 or less
  • Book your rental car in Saint Paul at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Saint Paul are around 25% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Saint Paul are around 66% cheaper than other car types, on average
