Pros:

Staff at the counter was very friendly and helpful, they just didn’t have very many people working so the line moved a bit slowly.

Cons:

Vehicle had no upgrades whatsoever (no moonroof, no push to start).

Cons:

The reservation agent charged me two extra hours (almost a full day's rate, three hours would have been a full day's rate). I was unaware I was a little more than an hour early, I had made the reservation a month and a half ago. When I noticed the total amount was more than what was on my reservation paperwork I was told it was because I was early. When I said I could go have lunch and come back in an hour the agent replied she's already opened the reservation and couldn't change it now. She said she could only cancel the reservation and that I'd be free to make a new one. This was during the covid car shortage and they were turning away people due to the shortage of cars and the cars that were available were renting at a premium. I know canceling a reservation is not the only option unless it is a new company top down policy.

The process of purchasing through Kayak was simple and convenient. However the service and response from the Hertz "partner" was the complete opposite. I had to cancel the second week of my reservation because of an illness (that turned into the eventual passing of a family member). Hertz was non-responsive to my request for a refund and was even less helpful when I finally submitted supporting documentation at their request. I changed my request for a refund to a credit when I return there in a few months, and my request seemed to vaporize! Deeply disappointed with the Hertz response and will not return to such a heartless organization. To the contrary, my dealings with VRBO over cancelled accommodations (which involved much more significant dollars) cold not have been more empathetic or convenient. Shame on Hertz and way to go VRBO!

Pros:

The staff are excellent. I used the current tense as I am still renting and now on my 4th vehicle with the current lease to expire May 5th.

Cons:

I have no issue with having to exchange the rental on the renewal date each month. What was extremely annoying was the email that I received on the first occasion. The wording was offensive and made me feel that there was an issue with me as a customer. For instance,, there was no explanation as to why the car had to be returned and the wording was "we are not extending your lease and the car must be returned to the nearest Budget airport office as soon as possible."

Pros:

Cons:

We did not get the car we asked for--the alternative was too small for our needs. And, I felt ripped off by all the extra fees, etc. Based on the "advertised" Kayak price, we should have paid much less buying making an advance deposit. The fees drove up the total significantly. Net, most likely will not use a third party again for car rental.

They didn’t have the type of car we reserved (suv) and gave us a 4 door chevy. It fit us fine but wasn’t the size we’d reserved. Also, the car had a big dent and scratch along the back side which looked a little crappy driving it around Palm Springs.

Cons:

The VW Atlas was a rattle trap. It took a bit to realize the backup camera didn’t go off after reversing the car, you have to manually touch the screen’s X to make it go away. I thought the V-6 was unresponsive. We figured out how to delete prior users smart phones that were constantly trying to pair with the car. Little things yes, but something that Avis could take care of when the last few people turned the car in. It did allow me to give the Atlas a thorough test drive as I had been considering it in a field of SUV’s to purchase.

Pros:

Lovely people. Very helpful.

Cons:

I left a portable battery charger and cord in the center console. I went back to the Enterprise desk at PSP within an hour of returning the car. Was told car was on the ‘back lot’ for an oil change. And the back lot closed at 4pm. Promised to call next day which someone did. They found a cord that wasn’t mine ap obviously it wasn’t from my car. I had to buy a new one which cost over half what the car rental was. My fault yes. But either I was being fed a line about the oil change or else someone helped themselves to a charger. Second bad experience with Enterprise on a row. Rental in Portland lasts a month- reserved a compact but all they had was an aptly names Armada or a a pickup truck. I ended up spending over $100 on gas for the week.

Pros:

The counter staff was nice, thorough and efficient...she walked me to the car, helped me load luggage and told me I could leave the car in the lot until my travel companions arrived later on.

Cons:

It took more time than I thought it would to go through the check in process & more time to extend the contract for an extra day. I had heard that it was "high season" in PSP, which can jeopardize the availability of a rental being available. The check in attendant was friendly, though very busy with multiple cars that arrived at the same time.

Top tips for renting a car at Palm Springs Airport

  • There are several modes of ground transportation from Palm Springs Airport (PSP), but car rentals are the most advantageous. Getting a car rental at Palm Springs Airport allows you to relish convenience and flexibility as you explore this city. Public transport might be the cheapest option from the airport, but its rigid travel schedule and delay times won’t give you the best experience while visiting Palm Springs.
  • Most of the respected Palm Springs car rental companies have their desks in the main terminal building at the Arrivals section, with their pick-up and drop-off lots just adjacent to the terminal building. Several off-site car rental companies are convenient. All you need to do is book your rental in advance, and you can have the rental delivered to you at the airport, or their shuttle can transport you to their lots just a short distance away.
  • California State Route 111 (CA-111) is one of the major roads connecting PSP to downtown Palm Springs. It is also one of the busiest routes, especially during rush hours. The morning rush hour on CA-111 starts from 7 am to 10 am, while the evening rush is from 4 pm to 7 pm. Traffic is usually packed, so avoid picking up or dropping off your Palm Springs Airport car rental during these hours. Avoid the major city routes during these hours for a smoother experience while driving your Palm Springs Airport car rental.
  • After-hours returns are available at Palm Springs Airport car rentals. When returning your car rental during after-hours, just follow the car rental returns signs to the return lot in PSP. Park the vehicle in the lot and lock it. Make sure to clear it of all your belongings. Walk into the main terminal building and place the keys and the completed return form in the dropbox of your specific car rental provider.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Palm Springs Airport for $76 or less
  • Book your rental car at Palm Springs Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
