Pros:

The employees were nice and wanted to accommodate my needs.

Cons:

My vehicle was not ready when I arrived, they were sanitizing it. Then they didn't have the class of car that I had made my reservation for and it wasn't available at any other location in town. They even called and confirmed it the day before.

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing. The staff at Enterprise in Springfield was extremely unhelpful. I was never even able to rent a car, and had to refund the insurance I paid for.

Cons:

When I showed up to Enterprise, they told me they had no cars available (despite my reservation). They left me stranded for 2 days as I awaited a car. I’ve never been so upset, angry, disappointed with a company. Ever. I’m a traveler from abroad so I was left abandoned because of their lack of prep.

Cons:

Car had a bulge in the tire. Noticed it when I pulled into a gas station to clean the windshield which was bug spotted. Called and they said don't return it, call Roadside Assistance. No other cars local so they had me drive to another city. That location rented the car they told me was saved for me so I ended up in a Mitubishi Lancer - which is no Mustang.

Didn’t get the same type of car I reserved, and the tires didn’t have enough air so there was a light on for it.

I feel the rental person rushed through the application so that I wouldnt be aware of the additional fees that i was going to pay. At my drop off in Bloomington, my balance was twice as high as I thought i was paying.

Pros:

They did't slam us with extra fees at pickup like some competitors do. Pickup was quick and easy. Staff was polite. Cars weren't too far from the terminal.

Cons:

There's wasn't a great selection of cars at this location, we ended up with a bigger vehicle than expected, but it was clean and ran well so it's not a big issue.

KAYAK

Pros:

The customer service rep at the Springfield, IL airport was very helpful.

Cons:

I had a hold on the account because of an issue that I was unaware of through Enterprise. I was renting this on a Sunday and the office that could have resolved this was closed. I am thankful that there was another car rental company available. It would have been helpful to have known about an issue before or as I was securing my reservation.

4.4 Okay

Jan 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

I had to get a rental and be on the road at 12:30. So I scheduled the pick up for 12:00. At 12:30 the vehicle just showed up, I then had to wait for it to be inspected and cleaned. This made me late and having to hurry to catch a flight out. Was any apology or compensation offered, NO. Very surprising in a market w so many choices.

Pros:

The counter was closed when I arrived to pick up the car. I had a family emergency and needed to get home to Washington DC early band was unable to make my flight that evening. I will never rent from Alamo again.

Cons:

Everything. And when I sent them an email about it they had the audacity to wish me a happy new year. They don't even deserve 1 star.

Top tips for renting a car in Springfield

  • If you're a fan of adventure, consider renting a car from one of the cheap car rentals in Springfield. This is because, with a rental car, you'll be able to drive to fun destinations near Springfield easily. Grafton, Hannibal, and Peoria, located 95.6 mi, 102.3 mi, and 74.5 mi away from Springfield, are some of the said destinations. In Grafton, you'll get the chance to visit attractions such as Pere Marquette State Park, Grove Memorial Park, and Hideaway Harbor Park, while in Hannibal, you'll be able to visit Mark Twain Cave & Campground, Riverview Park, and Sodalis Nature Preserve. In Springfield, you'll be able to check out the iconic Peoria Riverfront Museum, Wildlife Prairie Park, and Oglesby.
  • When driving your cheap rental car in Springfield, ensure that you observe the speed limits, as the city has higher speeding fines. In Springfield, if you're caught driving up to 20mph beyond the speed limit, you'll be fined $120, whereas if you're caught driving between 21mph to 25mph beyond the speed limit, you'll be fined $140. You could pay up to $1500 if you exceed the speed limit by 26mph.
  • Within Springfield, you won't have to pay any tolls, as there are no toll roads in the city. However, you'll incur toll costs if you intend to drive the car you hire from your preferred cheap car rental in Springfield to surrounding cities like Chicago, Dekalb, Dixon, Aurora, Naperville, and Indiana, as these cities are served by toll roads. You can use an I-Pass or E-ZPass transponder to pay for these toll roads. Since Springfield car rentals offer E-ZPass transponders, you can easily rent one at your cheap car rental in Springfield of choice.
  • Car rentals in Springfield give you the freedom to visit all of the local attractions on your to-do list, whether it be the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, the Dana Thomas House, or the Illinois State Museum. Having access to your own vehicle will also make it easy to explore cities in the surrounding region, including Bloomington and Decatur. You can even head to Lincoln's New Salem, a state park that is approximately a 30min drive from Springfield.
  • If you’re interested in booking car rentals in Springfield, you can conveniently pick them up directly from Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport. To pick up your vehicle, head to the Car Rental Center that is located in the east end of the main terminal, near the door marked "D." It is within walking distance of the Arrivals Terminal, so you don’t need to worry about taking a shuttle or taxi to get there. There are a few different companies based here, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz.
  • As Springfield is a busy city, particularly in certain neighborhoods like downtown and the Historic West-Side, you’ll find that there are many pedestrians and cyclists in the streets. Make sure to be cautious when driving and keep your eyes open for anyone crossing the road or in a bike lane. Many large streets can be confusing to navigate for those that are not used to driving in the city, so you can always choose to add GPS to Springfield car rentals to make it easier to find your way.
  • Several of the local highways are known for having a substantial amount of traffic during rush hour, including 4, 55, and 97. To save yourself time when driving to your destination, avoid taking these roads during the hours of 8-9am and 5-6pm. During the winter months, there may be snow or ice on the roads, so drive as cautiously as possible if this is the case. Always check to make sure that your vehicle is equipped with proper winter equipment.
