Pros:

The car was nice/clean

Cons:

I reserved a car for 12pm ET. Upon arrival, I was told there were no available cars and would need to wait a few hours until other drivers return their vehicles. I was stuck at the airport with nowhere to go, finally got a car around 2:30pm but didn't arrive in the evening until late Saturday evening. When I originally inquired about how there were no cars available despite confirming a reservation the week before, the front desk employees got a bit defensive. In the end, I made it to my destination. But it was a pretty bad experience overall.

Had to wait an hour in the cold standing in the lot waiting for the car. The attendant just came once and said we have your car in a few and the. Disappeared back in his booth and just ignored when ever I asked how long do I have to wait.

Cons:

Have my car ready and provide a discount, communication about the vehicle. Better customer service

Pros:

I can't say anything positive about dollar.

Cons:

I had to wait an hour and a half for a vehicle. The car they gave me wasn't as nice as what I booked. It smelled like incense and vape. I would not recommend booking with Dollar. Kayak was trying to pass me off to Budget to resolve the issue. Dollar was telling me to talk to Kayak. I do not like renting through third party companies such as Kayak. No accountability or care for the customer.

Cons:

The agent at the desk kept trying to push me on the extra insurance that I didn’t need or want. When I got to my car, the sticker that sealed the drivers door was already broken and the car was not very clean. Since I had already been there over an hour I just took the car as is. When I got home, my husband found marijuana in the middle console. I called customer service to make them aware that the car wasn’t cleaned out from the previous renter and I was transferred around and put on hold for over an hour. I hung up and submitted and email complaint through the website and never heard anything back. When I returned the car, I told them again what had happened and the agent apologized. I was never offered anything more than that one apology after the fact. I will not rent from any of the Hertz companies again.

Use a different company. My flight from Afghanistan had engine problems and we did emergency landing and forced. To spend night in Bulgaria. I called in as soon as plane landed to cancel or pushback one day but agent said no help. When I finally got to Car Rental in SDF they double charged me and the rates went up to a premium of 85 dollars a day. But thank God we didn’t crash and all of us military got home to the USA safe and next time I just will not book their Kayak

I loved driving the Ford Taurus! It was very nice and reminded me of a luxury car with the cream leather interior. The checkout process was very easy and quick! The checkin was even faster! Plus the value was amazing through Kayak.

Cons:

They don't do a walkthrough with the car. My rental had a damaged console in the middle, stains on the carpet, and a burn mark. I didn't want to be held responsible so I took pictures.

Very slow pickup, clerk did not know how to use the computer system and had to ask someone. Drop off was a mess as their computer system was down so the clerk asked me to hang out and wait for a bit. I responded that I had a plane to catch and that they would have to figure it out on their own time, which seems correct.

Nov 2020

Pros:

Agent at desk was friendly

Cons:

I was assigned a car but it was not in it's location. I had to find an employee to find another car for me, which took about 15 minutes. The car I received was dirty and definitely wasn't cleaned beyond pre-covid standards. I'm not a germ freak, but greasy fingerprints on the screen and doors and a greasy feeling steering wheel are just nasty.

Pros:

The price and the vehicle was great.

Cons:

At pickup, the vehicle was not ready, and had to wait. The help desk seemed to not want to be working. There was no information given about the return of the vehicle. I had to ask about return from the man working the gate, but even that was not enough. At return, there was no one to close the transaction, Just a sign saying to leave the keys in the car. I had to work with customer service for the next two days to get the extra daily charges removed from my credit card account because no one at the drop off location closed the account. I'll not rent from Thrifty and associated companies again.

Pros:

Desk lady was super patient with me and very friendly.

Cons:

Car selection, pre-rental inspection, communication. I called 7 times every hour to half hour and never go ahold of anyone at the local office. Was charged for a second day rental, we didn’t even have the car 36 hours. Local office was closed at 4, so I couldn't call and communicate the massive wreck that delayed us before returning on time. When I finally made it to the car return, the dude who took my keys never said anything to indicate I’d get charged another $125. I rent 8-10 cars annually for my business, and figured I’d give budget a chance to see why it’s cheaper. You get what you pay for. Never had an issue with enterprise or hertz.

At pickup, they would not let us add drivers without every driver having their own credit card. We’ve rented from several rental car companies over the past 8 years and have never needed all 3 listed drivers to have their own credit card, only the primary renter has needed a major credit card. When we asked to use a debit card and a deposit to add drivers, we were told “that’s not how we do things here” in a rude tone. Because of that, we had to make a 14 hour trip (one way) with only one driver, out of 3 capable adults. When we picked up the van, it wasn’t cleaned well. There was sand and dirt in the carpet all throughout the second and third rows, the cup holders in the center console had something sticky in them, and there were candy wrappers in the third row. I didn’t notice the sticky substance or the candy wrappers until later that evening, when we were packing up to leave, so I cleaned it and went on. The oil had also not been changed in the car. I kept getting “change oil soon” notifications. We will not be renting from National again. I was not impressed with the lack of cleanliness, their lack of proper maintenance their vehicles, or the rental policy on adding drivers.

I was never able to get my rental. When I arrived at the airport, there was a line of people at least 30 long, and only one counter open. After 30 minutes, I noticed a hand written sign nearer to the counter that said “We will not be honoring same day rentals - Management”. Since I booked my rental that same morning, they refused to honor my reservation. I ended up having to use another resource outside of Kayak to secure a rental.

I used a debit card to rent the car. If it was not an acceptable form of payment, why even approve it, deny it. You fail to notify people correctly. All 3 people at the Hertz counter were having the same problem. My credit card is kept at home and too far away to go back and retrieve. Your lady at the desk was rude from the start, but if I had to tell people they couldn't take the car when they paid a month ago I wouldn't be very happy either. The details should be taken care of before getting there. Oh and also, I am home from my trip nine days later and still do not have all of my money back, but you sure did take it all at once. I am not asking you to take debit cards, just not accept debit cards, so we avoid confusion.

Mar 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

I had to exchange rentals when an oil light turned on, on the dashboard. The second car, a Kia Soul, was far better than the first (a Chevrolet Cruze) in terms of comfort. The people you have working at the Louisville, KY, airport are so friendly, efficient and they go the extra mile. I walk with a cane and cannot walk long distances, so the counter agent went to the trouble of bringing the car to the closest terminal door. And the value-for-money aspect couldn't have been better.

Cons:

I had to exchange rentals when an oil light turned on, on the dashboard. I consider that a failure by the staff to be aware of the next service point of the vehicle. With only about 300 miles to the next service point and I was planning to use the car for 12 days, they should have given me a different car. Also, the distance from your dropoff location to the terminal was too far for a guy with a cane to walk (at least 200 yards), but there seemed to be no way to call for a wheelchair or some other accommodation. In that sense, an "in terminal" location is actually a disadvantage. So maybe you can find a solution for that.

Top tips for renting a car at Louisville Standiford Field Airport

  • Opting for a car rental at Louisville Standiford Field Airport (SDF) grants you the convenience of exploring the artistic city. You can easily visit various places in Louisville that aren’t fully accessible by public transport. Renting also offers a fast and comfortable transportation option to downtown Louisville. You don’t have to spend much time at different stops, and you can opt for alternative routes in case of traffic. It is also cheaper compared to the collective costs of hiring a taxi to various destinations.
  • Collecting your car rental at Louisville Standiford Field Airport is super easy. There are multiple rental companies with on-site counters at the airport, making it easier to choose your preferred car at the best price. Once you arrive at the airport, visit the car rental counters with all your obligatory documents. All the car rental counters are in the baggage claim section. After signing the rental agreement, you can walk to the garage outside the baggage claim area, where you will find your car. Examine the vehicle’s technical condition and ensure the required maps are installed before starting your trip.
  • Returning your car to SDF isn’t that complicated once you decide to use a car rental at Louisville Standiford Field Airport. You’ll have to return it to the same point you collected or the selected drop-off point in your rental agreement. Some rental companies are operational 24 hours, so you can return the rental car during or after working hours. For companies with a scheduled return period, make sure you return before time to avoid the late return fee. Gather all your items from the car and check in at your rental company’s counter to hand over the keys and fill out the necessary documents.
  • Louisville International Airport is one of the busiest in Kentucky, so you’re likely to encounter traffic when collecting or dropping off your rental car. The busiest day of the week at SDF is Monday, and 2 pm to 3 pm is the daily peak hour. More bookings happen during this period, so you’ll likely experience long queues at the counters.
