2.0 MediocreApr 8 2021
Cons: No car was available. I was informed 10 minutes upon arrival at rental center. Very poor
2.0 MediocreMar 3 2021
Pros: Nothing at all. Unacceptable and unprofessional.Cons: We received a confirmation with location to pick up the car. When we arrived the rep stated that they didnt have the reservation and the site we booked it through was not legitimate. My husband showed her the information amd she stated it was not a reservation. They ended up sending us to another enterprise and made us pay 140.00 more. We had no choice as we were traveling with children for a youth tournament and needed transportation. Unacceptable.
4.8 OkayAug 4 2020
Pros: NothingCons: I had a 9am reservation and did not get the car until 10:30. And the gas tank was on E. And I reserved a compact car and got a van.
9.6 ExcellentJul 24 2020
Pros: Staff was nice; pick up and drop off were easy. Car was good for what we needed.Cons: The car wasn’t luxurious- but I didn’t pay for a luxury model, so that’s definitely not Enterprise’s fault.
2.0 MediocreJun 30 2020
Pros: At least they called to say they had no cars. Just as I entered their parking lot.Cons: Have inventory online reflect reality. They were no cars as promised.
2.0 MediocreJun 8 2020
Cons: Wasn’t able to rent the car because they didn’t have any available.
9.6 ExcellentNov 18 2019
Pros: Staff was very friendly, informative, and accommodating. Would recommend in the future.
10.0 ExcellentNov 8 2019
Pros: They did not have my class of vehicle and gave me a free upgrade to a brand new truck.Cons: This may be more representative of kayak when booking, but a notice of actual cost of deposit at time of reservation being made.
9.2 ExcellentOct 24 2019
Cons: Didn’t like my rental car: too small, side view mirrors useless in rain storm!
10.0 ExcellentMay 31 2019
Pros: Staff member was professional, polite, and helpful. Pick-up took less than 5 minutes. Return was just as easy.

6.4 GoodNov 5 2020
Cons: The car smelled of smoke strongly and of fragrances to cover the smoke odor which made the overall experience even worse. Otherwise, the rental experience was good, and the car functioned well.
10.0 ExcellentAug 6 2020
Cons: This location was top notch! They were very helpful, and upgraded our car size because that was the only car they had available at that location. The young man that checked the car out to me was superb very kind. We extended our rental 3 days and they gave us the same price. I will definitely rent from them again! Way to go Virginia Beach (Virginia Beach Blvd) location! Thank you!
10.0 ExcellentJun 22 2019
Pros: The staff at Avis was superb !! Much better than Hertz.Cons: Nothing, it was awesome.

2.0 MediocreDec 30 2020
Pros: NothingCons: There was no car available when I showed up. The one person working there did not help me find another Budget location with a car, so I had to go to Enterprise and pay double the amount due to the increased rates of same day rental reservations. I won’t use Kayak for car rentals again either.
9.6 ExcellentAug 22 2020
Pros: Friendly efficient staffCons: Greater selection
4.0 OkayDec 28 2019
Pros: The car at least worked.Cons: Staff were frustrated and rude. They could not add insurance even though I wanted it, asked me to call someone else to purchase. It took and hour and 15 minutes to get a car, and it was not cleaned nor was the gas to fill. I will not rent from this venue again.
9.6 ExcellentJul 28 2019
Soul rentalPros: Easy to pick up, near my house. Friendly staff. Well priced.Cons: The Kia Soul needed a good outside washing but the office did not do that because of its location. The inside of the car was spotless.
3.6 MediocreJun 24 2019
Pros: This rental was not available when we arrived to pick up and they had my son run all over to get a vehicle.Cons: Budget could have the car available that was rented. Would not rent a vehicle again thru Kayak.
7.6 GoodMay 13 2018
Drop off was easy.Pros: Easy return.
10.0 ExcellentSep 2 2017
Pros: Clean car and came with a damage report already so I didn't get stuck paying for someone else's damage on the car
2.0 MediocreAug 20 2017
Will not rent budget againPros: The to young men at drop off were politeCons: The car was a compact not full size the man in Virginia Beach didn't tell me that by getting there early to pick up car he was changing the reservation to charge me hourly rate. Thankfully customer service honored my reservation. if I had known I would have waited 30 minutes. When I picked up car man was rude!! Car had scratches and dings every man in virginia beach didn't do a walk with me when i asked him about the scratches he said yea I know. so i took advice of another customer and took pictures so if there was a questions i had it documented
10.0 ExcellentAug 6 2017
Great servicePros: Very friendly customer service workersCons: You can't call directly to the office you have to call 1-800 number very frustrating
2.0 MediocreMar 21 2017
Horrible customer service!Cons: We showed up to get the car and they didn't have anything available and told us they would call back at 2:00. They never did. Upon calling them they said maybe they would have a car at 6:00. They didn't. We contacted their corporate and everyone we spoke with was rude and unhelpful. They told us to call another location who didn't answer their phones (we tried at least 10 times). Finally, we gave up and went to enterprise. Enterprise was great, by the way!

2.0 MediocreMay 24 2017
NEVER AGAINCons: I thought I was renting a full size car. My pick up time was Friday at 6pm, but they close at 6pm so not sure why they would allow me to schedule that time. I called them Friday May 5 around 3 or 3:30pm to see if I could come early and was told that they did not have a full size car at that time. I arrived around 530-545pm. They still didn't have a full size car, the gentleman took me outside to a 2016 Nissan Rogue, he told me it was an upgrade. I was disappointed because I was traveling and really wanted a trunk. I currently own a 2015 Nissan Rogue and the one I rented didn't have half the stuff my 2015 has. This was a base model all the way around no upgrades. I was supposed to return the car Sunday May 14, but I was so dissatisfied, I took it back Saturday morning, May 13 at 9am, when they were supposed to open. Well myself and another gentleman waited outside for about 15 minutes when the lady finally arrived. She walked right by us and did not say a word. She never spoke or greeted us never apologized for her tardiness. Once we were inside she asked what we were here for we replied drop off. She took the keys went and looked at the cars came back and gave us a receipt. This was my first rental with HERTZ, I normally use Enterprise but decided to give HERTZ a try. NEVER AGAIN, ENTERPRISE HERE I COME!!!
8.0 ExcellentApr 24 2017
Pros: speedy deliveryCons: cleanliness of interior of vehicle
2.0 MediocreFeb 20 2017
What is happening to ORF rentals?Cons: Third time in a row and across multiple agencies as well as heard the same from coworkers. Car was filthy, full of human and pet hair, dog slime, sticky seats and console, trash in the compartments and my son found a large knife in the overhead as we were driving it home!! then 10 hours of everyone miserable due to allergic response to all the pet dander in the cab. All after booking the car for a noon pickup only to find out that the agency closed at noon, then had to rebook to pickup at the airport making us late, then they could not take a debit card and said that my refund for the first booking will take up to three weeks! Horrible experience, I have to rent again for this weekend, not sure what I am going to do.
2.0 MediocreJan 3 2017
Pros: nothing...Cons: did not have the car I reserved, wanted to downgrade to smaller car for same price or more...refused to upgrade to next size car without costing me more money...will NEVER rent from them again
10.0 ExcellentOct 25 2016
My first time with Kayak - Excellent!Pros: Stumbled on Kayak in a last ditch effort to get any car for the weekend. Everything worked out perfect. The Hertz shop had a small and very busy Friday, but well trained staff that got me In my car in record breaking time (my experience). (Apparent) manager checked me out when I returned and he was excellent as well: Honest and determined leaders can ensure integrity in service for customers. Thanks again.

Top tips for renting a car in Virginia Beach

  • Ditch the crowded public transportation and jump into a rental car, which is the most comfortable way to explore both Virginia Beach and its surrounding areas. A car will allow you to freely explore the coastal area and some of the city's best parks, such as First Landing State Park and Neptune's Park. Drive your rental car to nearby Norfolk to see the USS Wisconsin, plus the city of Richmond is only 45 minutes away.
  • All the major car rental companies can be found at Norfolk International Airport (ORF), which is approximately 30 minutes away from Virginia Beach. The car rental desks are located in the Arrivals Hall, which is on the Level 1 of the terminal. Many counters operate from early in the day (4:30 a.m.) until late at night (1 a.m.). Vehicle pickup is on Level G, and rental car return is on Level 2.
  • Virginia Beach is pretty straightforward to navigate, and the best time to visit (weather-wise) is from June to August. That's also peak season, however, so be prepared to find lots of tourists and generally more people on the roads. Two-way traffic must also keep to its side of the road, as a general rule. Drinking driving laws are strict, with the maximum blood alcohol limit being 0.08.
  • Morning rush hour usually takes place between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., and evening rush hour happens between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The evening peak hour may start slightly earlier around the shipyard and naval base as workers get off around 3:30 p.m. The Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel (HRBT) connects the Virginia Beach area to the north side of Hampton Roads, which is where most traffic jams happen, so plan your trip accordingly.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Virginia Beach for $35 or less
  • Book your rental car in Virginia Beach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Virginia Beach are around 47% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Parking in Virginia Beach is plentiful, with lots of municipal parking lots available in the Oceanfront, Sandbridge, and Chesapeake Bay areas. Garages charge a maximum of $10 per day unless you're staying overnight. Metered parking is also available for a rate of up to $2 per hour.
