8.0 ExcellentApr 16 2019
Pros: The woman with whom I dealt was a delight. Couldn't have been nicer.Cons: The rental counter at the Springfield train/bus station was not staffed. I called the number and located someone, who advised that they were short staffed. She appeared and was just delightful. But I was a bit delayed by her absence from the counter. Otherwise, the experience was great.
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2018
Great Car and ServicePros: Easy access, easy drop off. The car was jus what I needed to not have to take two cars to the beach for one day. Price was great. I would totally recommend Sixt again and would use them again.
8.0 ExcellentNov 20 2017
Good service short processPros: Women was very helpful in assisting me when I had to pick up the rentalCons: Because I purchased my rental through a third-party I was unaware that there were different fees for in-state and out-of-state miles until I went to pick up the car and had to pay more.

Pros: NothingCons: I reserved a car I didn’t even pick up due to the fact I needed a major credit card as well I put a $100 deposit down and I want to know how can I get a refund
10.0 ExcellentOct 8 2019

10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2019
Pros: Pick up and drop off was very efficient. Everything went as planned. No issues.Cons: Nothing
4.0 OkayDec 17 2018
False hopePros: Rental was canceledCons: We were unable to rent the car due to the insurance requirements for a 12 passenger van. Should have been stated in the rental process that regular car insurance does not transfer to a 12 passenger van and only those with special insurance or license are allowed to rent this size car. Very disappointed to find this out 2 days before our event.
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2018
Pros: Eric was extremely helpful and friendly!
2.0 MediocreFeb 20 2017
Cons: I booked a car rental through kayak and went to pick up the car and Enterprise was closed. I couldn't get a hold of anyone through customer service or anything. Apparently Kayak doesn't keep up to date with hours at Enterprise, I was very upset and was stuck with no car after driving all the way there.
10.0 ExcellentJan 5 2017
Pros: Car was brand new with only 6000 miles. Ready when we arrived. Simple and easy. Staff was very pleasant when discussing this with them. No issues so far.Cons: Waiting for my gas charge to be refunded. We filled the car up before dropping it off. I called to make sure I was not being charged. I was charged and am now waiting to receive the gas credit. I am sure it will be taken care of.
5.2 OkayJan 4 2017
Car smelled like vomitPros: Car was reliable, new, good on gas, etc.Cons: Car smelled pretty bad the whole time. Seemed like a previous renter had thrown up in it and the car cleaning did not do the trick.
10.0 ExcellentDec 29 2016
Pros: Car was brand new with only 6000 miles. Beautiful, clean and comfortable. Had many options and made our trip amazing!!!
4.0 OkaySep 30 2016
BlancaPros: I like the fact that I.had a car for a few days. Car had a few scratches but comfortable.Cons: I didn't like the fact that I had to.pay more than what reserve for, and I couldn't get the car for the days I reserve for. I was supposed to have for $208.00 from the September 22 to October 1,'and I end up paying $349.00 from 22 to the 30th only. I still have one more day here without a car Saturday 1rst. Thank you for allowing me to do complaint.

Pros: Car was super uncomfortable and hard to drive
2.0 MediocreJul 23 2018
Pick up time was scheduled for when the store was closedPros: NothingCons: I chose a 12:00 noon pickup time when scheduling my rental. When I showed up at noon the store was closed. This was a Saturday, and they wouldn't open again until Monday. This rental was for my family vacation that we had been looking forward to for months. After more than 2 hours on the phone with Hertz they proved to have very poor customer service skills or ability to assist me in any way. I ended up having to rent a car about 25 miles away from me for 3x the price from a different company. I do not recommend renting through Kayak (or any other travel site) - they don't communicate well with the actual company and the car rental company doesn't see any of the information you provided through Kayak. Find the deal on Kayak and then go directly to the car rental website and book directly through that company.
7.2 GoodMay 9 2018
Pros: Price for a two week rental was reasonable. The agents I interacted with on pick up and return were friendly & professional.Cons: We rented a Nissan Versa. Hands down the most uncomfortable car I’ve ever been in. Certainly not their fault but I’ll know better next time. I wasn’t informed that even though I paid for the rental in advance there would be an additional $200 deposit held on my credit card until the car was returned. I don’t think that’s unreasonable but felt that should be made known in advance.
2.0 MediocreAug 9 2017
Poor customer service - poor qualityPros: The location of the business was convenient right off the highway. That was the only thing convenient about dealing with HERTZ.Cons: The Manager at this location should take a course in Customer Service. When I arrived they told me I couldn't get the car I booked AND paid for because it was paid on a debit card. I advised him that this card could be used for credit OR debit but he simply said "NO". He had no solutions to offer and did not even try to help the situation. I told him I could put the deposit on an actual credit card as I only used the other card because it wasn't clear that I shouldn't at the time of booking. He said "NO". I said what can I do...he said..."I don't know what to tell you...you need to call this 1 800 number to see if they can help...I can't". Bottom line...after much stress and NO help we left to figure out another solution. Fortunately right down the road we found another rental company which actually new how to service their customers. We got a better car at a lower rate and were on our way about 20 minutes later. Never again will I consider doing business with HERTZ.

Pros: One of the best experiences I've ever had with a Rental Car Company. The staff is the best I've ever met! Really impressed with them!!!
2.0 MediocreJul 30 2017
No Car Available at Pick UpPros: NothingCons: I went to Congress St in Springfield, MA to pick up the car I reserved and they did not have a car for me and the guy at the desk said, "Too bad!" -After three phone calls with not much help I was told I had to travel 45 minutes to another location and they wanted to charge me $40.00 more than my initial reservation. Finally things got resolved at the Bradley Airport in Windsor Locks, CT location, but I would not ever recommend Springfield Budget. Friends don't let friends rent from Budget! Avoid at all cost!!!
8.0 ExcellentJun 3 2017
Great office in West SpringfieldPros: The rental agents at the West Springfield office were great and provided incredible service.Cons: There was nothing wrong. The car was somewhat dirty inside and there were scratches on the outside of the car. But the agent that helped me was great and had everything filled out before I picked up the vehicle.
7.2 GoodSep 12 2016

Top tips for renting a car in Springfield

  • Car rentals in Springfield allow greater access to suburban areas, which are not as walkable as the downtown area. These neighborhoods are generally more car-dependent than other parts of the city, as the public transit is less extensive in the suburbs. Springfield car rentals also give more convenient access to nearby attractions, such as a visit to Boston or the shores of the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. The journey to Boston via car takes about 1h 30min, while the same trip via public transit takes nearly 6h and requires multiple transfers. Public transit stops in the general area of the Atlantic shore but rarely travels along the coast if you are hoping to experience several miles of shoreline. 
  • Springfield is primarily served by the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, but travelers may also arrive in Boston at General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport. At Bradley International (BDL), you can access each individual rental company via their free shuttle from the airport terminal. Be sure to know which company you are renting through when you fly because you will need to find the specific company shuttle. If you fly into Logan International (BOS), take the Massport airport shuttle to the rental car center for free. 
  • Travelers who are driving car rentals in Springfield should be aware of pedestrians and cyclists as the city is working to develop more bike lanes and walkable neighborhoods. Springfield is known as the Crossroads of New England due to the heavy amount of cargo that passes through on freeways, the Connecticut River, and the many train routes that cross through the city. Because of this, drivers should be aware of large trucks when driving on the freeways and carefully check for oncoming trains at railroad crossings.
  • Though Springfield does not have a notable rush hour that will dramatically impact your travel times, it still has heavier traffic in the mornings and evenings. As one of the hubs for festivals, events, and tourism in the Pioneer Valley, Springfield can have sporadic traffic backups that travelers can avoid by checking event schedules if they are passing by an attraction, such as the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. As with most northeastern cities, Springfield experiences challenging weather in the winter months, particularly when nor’easter storms dump snow on roadways. If you are unfamiliar with driving in snow, consider delaying your travel for heavy snow, and drive cautiously if you need to drive in a storm.

FAQs about renting a car in Springfield

  • Some car rental companies in Springfield which have updated their car rental health and safety policies due to COVID-19 to make sure vehicles are clean and disinfected include Enterprise, Hertz and Budget

  • On average a rental car in Springfield costs $54 per day.

  • In the past 72 hours, the cheapest rental cars were found at Hertz ($35/day), Budget ($59/day) and Sixt ($76/day). In the last 72 hours the cheapest rental car price was found at Sixt 504 Saint James Ave 01109-3843 (2 miles from city center).

  • The average gas price in Springfield is $3.52 per gallon over the past 30 days. Filling up a gas tank costs between $42 and $56, depending on the car size.

  • Economy (Hyundai Accent or similar) is the most frequently booked rental car type in Springfield.

  • Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

  • A Economy car rental in Springfield costs $49 per day, on average.

  • A Standard car rental in Springfield costs $46 per day, on average.

  • A Compact car rental in Springfield costs $52 per day, on average.

  • In Springfield, cars are most frequently rented at Hertz 1238 Riverdale St Rte 5 (3 miles from city center).

  • On average a rental car in Springfield costs $379 per week ($54 per day).

  • On average a rental car in Springfield costs $1,623 per month ($54 per day).

  • If you are renting during the winter months, the recommended vehicle is an intermediate SUV with all-wheel drive. This will give you more control during winter driving but still allow you the maneuverability to navigate busy city streets during heavy traffic. All-wheel drive is easier to use for inexperienced winter drivers than four-wheel drive, as the rotation rate of the tires adjusts to your turns and makes the drive smoother.

  • The freeways surrounding Springfield have a speed limit of 55mph due to their proximity to urban regions. Within the city, most streets in residential and business districts have a speed limit of 25mph. Major roads, such as Liberty Street, have higher limits of 35mph to 45mph. 

  • The average price for a gallon of gas in Springfield is approximately $2.40. You can typically find cheaper gas at Costco in West Springfield. If you need to return your rental car to Bradley International Airport or Logan International Airport, fill up as much as possible before making the drive to these areas since the average price per gallon is much higher near both airports.  

  • The Springfield Parking Authority operates eight parking garages and lots throughout the city, with rates of about $2 per hour and slightly higher or lower rates depending on proximity to the city center and the Union Street Train Depot. If you are parking on the street, meters have similar rates, but check that you are not parking on a snowplow route in the winter if you are planning to park overnight. You do not want to be stuck shoveling your car out of the snow.

  • 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!).
