I rented the car for airport pickup. I was told, at pickup that rate was for a pickup downtown and I had to get myself there. Off airport pickup was not brought to my attention when I booked.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

I booked this reservation about a week before I arrived. Found out about 4 days before that I would be unable to keep the reservation. I could not cancel online and had to wait for 20 minutes to talk to a rep who tried to charge me $100 cancellation fee!! Ridiculous. Won't use Hertz again. I then told her it was covid related and she waived the $100. Guess a lie is what is required!!!!

Cons:

If I actually got the rental I reserved. They didn't even have the rental I reserved. So I was unable to accomplish what I was trying to do. Horrible that I reserved something and they didn't even have it when I showed up.

Pros:

Dropping of and picking up was gray. Staff was great.

Cons:

Smelled like pigs. The Dodge van was the biggest piece of junk. Shook like a wooden rollercoaster, bounced like a trampoline, no USB plugs for phones. The radio controls where horrible. I would never buy one, or rent one.

We were taking a car one way, plans changed and I was told that if we returned the car to it pick-up location that it would be cheaper. Nope, still over $800.00....never use avis again.

Pros:

I had a big problem in the beginning ... but Sophia (manager in Cedar Rapids) was absolute amazing. She fixed the problem immediately and made me fell much better. I have rented from enterprise many times and she fixed the issue. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her.

Cons:

Make sure you have plenty of staff in the evening to help with customers. Once again Sophia made this a great experience and I hope she gets a pat on the back on how much I appreciate her efforts to fix the problem. She restored my faith in enterprise by going above and beyond the call of duty.

Pros:

Cons:

My flight was delayed due to bad weather over the Rockies, and by the time I arrived at my destination their booth was closed. I tried calling them 3 times during the day to alert them and no one answered (kept on hold every single time). They did not attempt to call me, and also did not leave the keys for my pick up. I ended up stranded at the airport trying to find transportation to my hotel. Awful experience.

Pros:

The pick up was not easy, I had to move my trip a day later because there weren't any cars available. When I arrived, the lady had the wrong reservation and I think this because the series of issues that i had.

Cons:

I waited so long at pick up for the lady to find and clarify my reservation. The rental car was fine. Then when I returned the car the charge was over $100 more. The I wish I was charged the rate service, she not could not help me!!

Pros:

The vehicle we received was clean and ready to go at the appointed time. Gas mileage was much better than our own vehicles.

Cons:

A couple of features were not on the vehicle that we are used to, such as backup camera. Possibly if we would have requested a higher priced vehicle it would have been included?

Jan 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

I called to inquire as to what I should do if I could not make it to the scheduled return time for my rental. The woman, who spoke poor English, took it upon herself to charge my card for an additional day without my permission. This caused my acct to be overdrawn. When I tried to explain this she repeatedly told me she did not charge my card however I called my bank and they confirmed the charge. When I called Alamo back they said there was nothing they could do but refund my money which would take 3-7days and they had nothing to say about the overdraft fee. All this for what was just supposed to be an inquiry.

Sep 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Moved my fiancé from Iowa to Boston. We got a brand-new Dodge Caravan with fold-flat seats, SiriusXM radio, and the flex-fuel capability which was a major money-saver. Was as smooth as you'd expect of a car under 15k miles.

Cons:

The van had a lot of someone else's trash inside when I picked it up. I spent a half-hour cleaning it out after picking it up. There were chip bags, pop bottles, grease streaks, and a persistient stickiness to the steering wheel that required dish soap to remove. I suppose this is the price paid for a low rate.

Top tips for hiring a car in Cedar Rapids

  • Car rentals in Cedar Rapids make it easy for you to explore the surrounding region, including popular nearby cities like Marion and Iowa City. Quickly travel to destinations that are placed outside of the city center, such as the scenic Palisades-Kepler State Park that is around 15 miles from town and can be reached in just under half an hour by car. Cedar Rapids car rentals allow you to explore the area on your own time and avoid having to take public transport.
  • It is possible to pick up car rentals in Cedar Rapids from the rental car center at Eastern Iowa Airport. The rental car center is placed just outside of the airport’s Arrivals terminal, and is within walking distance, meaning that you do not need to take a shuttle or taxi to get there. There are a few different rental companies for you to choose from, including Enterprise, Avis, and Hertz.
  • Cedar Rapids is a large city and can be confusing to navigate, so adding a GPS system to your rental car will help ensure that you do not get lost during your time in the city. When you are in busy neighborhoods like Czech Village or Wellington Heights, make sure to pay extra attention to any pedestrians or cyclists that may be around you. You will also want to be particularly careful when crossing major intersections, such as those along the busy Edgewood Rd., as drivers do not always respect the right of way.
  • As many commuters travel to and from the city for work, there are some roads that become particularly busy during rush hour, like highways 30 and 380. If you want to avoid being caught in a traffic jam, try not to drive on these highways between the hours of 8am and 9am and 5pm and 6pm. It’s also important to keep in mind that Cedar Rapids often has ice and snow during the winter months, so you will want to drive carefully if you experience this type of weather.
  • Book your rental car in Cedar Rapids at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Cedar Rapids are around -26% cheaper than other car types, on average
