My flight was delayed and so the rental car place was closed. Luckily another rental car company was open and I was able to get a car through them. Very disappointed that National did not stay open knowing they had customers to serve.

Not the place to go without car rental reservations!Humboldt is a very hard to get to island. Once you have this mindset it falls into place. You simply MUST have reservations in advance. You NEED a car to get around. Humboldt Airport rental counter staff are very friendly and helpful. Chat them up.Value is relative. We made last minute reservations. Probably paid a premium for it, OK, that was on us. So did we get value? YES. This made a great last minute visit possible!

Rebooked SFO to PDXMy flight was cancelled from SFO to McKinleyville, so I had to rebook my car rental to leave from SFO and drove north. Top marks to Arlene, who worked very hard to get me the best rebooking deal possible, and it only cost me an extra $75 or so to depart from a completely different city.Other than the pain of rescheduling and having to drive an SUV that guzzled gas (I only needed an economy), I appreciated their help and it was a good rental experience.

Bate and switchthat they had a carThat all they had was a subcompact car and not the standard size car I ordered
6.0 Good5 Aug 2017
The car was ready when we needed it; friendly clerk.Bummed out that the car was NOT clean. They didn't bother to wash the car or windshield, inside not vacuumed or cleaned out, and even had some granola bar wrapper left in car. When we reported the unclean car (when we returned the car) they said sorry, but they were short staffed.

rudest counter persons everit's located closest to my home.looked up hertz payment info online, and noted that some outlets do not accept debit cards. called the branch to speak with an agent, and was assured they do accept debit cards. got a ride to the airport, and was told they DO accept debit cards, but only on arrival to the airport with a valid flight boarding card. my ride had already departed. no other local companies had any cars remaining, there is no reception for most cell phone carriers. the agent next door (national, avis) did not have cars available, but at least called the airporter so i could get home ($40). i found a car 2 days later, for $90+ more, so they cost me over $100 because they do not bother to provide accurate payment info. jacob and melissa were slow, and rude throughout,. other than offering to let me make a local call, they did nothing to make this attempted rent anything other than miserable.

A Dodge FWD Journey is NOT a Toyota 4-Runner AWD OWas cleanWAS NOT an AWD OR 4WD like advertised and the counter person says to me after stating I need to drive into the Sierra Nevada, VERY SNOWY, mountains..."Well at least it's not a rear wheel drive car"? I have rented several times from Hertz. The last time was what I paid for. This time I paid $391.00 for a 1 day rental of basically a mini van? A fwd car/mini van thing is NOT even in the same classification as a Toyota 4-Runner AWD SUV...obviously Hertz is trying to BAIT and switch for a lessor vehicle and is basically false advertisement...

Top tips for renting a car at Arcata Eureka Airport

  • Upon your arrival at Arcata Eureka Airport (ACV), your first thought will likely be how to get to your next destination. Car rental at Arcata Eureka Airport provides you with a reliable solution, thanks to available car rental agencies at the airport. With a rental car, you can trust that your transition from the flight to the highways of Humboldt County, Northern California will be seamless and timeless. Additionally, a rental car will enable you to explore the best parts of the city on your schedule and in the comfort of your own wheels.
  • Arcata Eureka Airport car rental companies have different age restrictions when it comes to car rental services. Most require renters to be at least 21 years old or more. However, if you’re below 21, some car rental agencies will ask you to pay an underage surcharge per day for the rest of your rental period. On the other hand, that company you want to rent a car from will demand that your additional driver meets all the renter’s requirements. The other driver must also appear at the car rental desk with you to sign the agreement.
  • Once you have the requirements to secure a car at ACV, the next step should be to find the most appropriate vehicle for your needs. In this regard, you’re advised to boost your daily savings by choosing the car that will make your trip worthwhile. You should also compare car rental rates from the onsite car suppliers on a particular car type before you make your final choice. Most importantly, beware of hidden costs, mileage limits, and fuel policy before you sign the car rental agreement.
  • Returning the car to the airport should not be a problem when dealing with car rental at Arcata Eureka Airport. For onsite car rental agencies, you’re advised to follow the ACV airport signs to direct you to the designated return location for your rental agency. Drive the car to the designated airport’s return lane for additional guidance from a car rental attendant. If it’s an after-hours return, you’ll drive to the designated parking areas and drop off the car keys and the completed contract to the return box before catching your flight.
  • Book your rental car at Arcata Eureka Airport at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
