I inadvertently rented my car from West Hartford when I really wanted the airport. Being unfamiliar with the area, I was not sure of the address. The pickup experience at West Hartford was great, getting there was a little more problematic. When I returned the car, I opted to pay the fee to return at a different location, and picked the airport since it was right across the street from our hotel, so much easier to get to. Everyone I worked with had great customer service.

Cons:

Our flight was delayed, landing us about 30 minutes after Dollar closed for the night. Before our flight departed, I called the Dollar location directly to inform them. If they wouldn’t be open, I was going to cancel my reservation and book with someone else who would still be there. They assured me it wouldn’t be an issue, and took down my flight information. As soon as we landed, I called again, and nobody answered. We waited for the bus to show, but it never did. They closed at their regular time, and left us stranded. Then, because we didn’t cancel before the time we were supposed to arrive, they refused to refund the money since we prepaid. I would not rent with Dollar again.

Our flight wasn't until 7:30 p.m. and the car had to be returned at 11 a.m... We called Andrew at the Hartford location and for 4.$ extra we were able to keep the car until 4. They also allowed us to drop the car at a location closer to the airport. The experiecne made our trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you Enterprise. Your new loyal customers,

Pros:

Cons:

Drop-off of rental car. When I went to drop off the rental at 330am the morning of my flight (6am), the rental location was closed. I had to call road side assistance/directions support. Turns out the location is closed until 5am and that Thrifty rentals were to be returned to the Hertz location. I had no problem with the return, but it was stressful to deal with before an early flight in a city I am not familiar with.

Sep 2018

Pros:

convenient location, quoted price (actual price was significantly more!)

Cons:

When dropping the car off, there was only one employee behind the counter working with a couple. He asked if I was dropping off and then told me to "move the car over there." He didn't say "please" or ask nicely, simply commanded me to do it. I walked back in and he eventually told the couple he'd be back and disappeared for at least 5 minutes. A shuttle driver finally showed up and I walked outside and asked if I could drop the car off with him, explaining that the person behind the counter just disappeared. He said, "I'm just tired of doing returns." He did help but the service and the latter employee complaining about his job left much to be desired.

Was standing at the airport for over 20 minutes waiting for the rental shuttle. Had to call customer service who was even less than helpful.

Pros:

Good car, clean, well maintained. Friendly, efficient staff.

Cons:

Not enough staff at the Liebert Road site. When I picked the car up there was a thunderstorm coming up, and one poor fellow had to deal with a line of people impatient to get going, another line of people wanting to return, as well as the necessary inspections of outgoing and incoming vehicles. He should never have had to do this alone. That said, he did a great job considering the circumstances.

Pros:

The advertised price

Cons:

I was renting through my company and needed the underage fee to be waived. I called customer service before I arrived at the Budget office to apply my company code, they couldn't assist me and referred me to the nearest office. The rep at the office said an underage charge wouldn't be added, went ahead and swiped my card then realized I was being charged double the price. So I decided not to proceed with the rental, but was still charged an absurd qmount of money.

Pros:

Very friendly and helpful! My problem is with Priceline. They scheduled this at a downtown location, which after I got off the airplane had no way to get to before closing. System shouldn’t have allowed. I selected BDL airport and couldn’t have known what street the car rental places are. Avis worked with me but airport fees made the care over $100 more. I won’t be ordering from Priceline again. I will order from Avis directly. They are great.

Pros:

The convenience and service I received at the time of pick-up and drop-off. Easy and seamless.

Cons:

I have never rented from Avis before but I have rented a car with other companies prior to this experience. I expected the Avis employee to walk with me to the vehicle and inspect the vehicle prior to me leaving with the vehicle. That did not happen. I was handed the keys and told I was all set. I walked to the car and noticed that it was dirty inside, leftover papers in the trunk and wrappers in the back door. About half way through my 750 mile commute I received a maintenance required notification on the dashboard for the rear seatbelts. I didn’t use the rear seat belts at all during my trip. The notification continued to prompt every time I would start the car. Just didn’t make me feel safe that all services/recalls weren’t serviced prior to letting a customer take the vehicle as a rental, especially with my lengthy trip.

Pros:

So I mistakenly thought I booked the car for the Avis location close to the airport. Took the Avis shuttle from airport to their facility, and when the agreement screen popped up, the price showed as being close to $600!! I showed the clerk my reservation, with the price I agreed to as being $136, and the clerk said “Oh, I see the problem. Your booking is with the downtown Avis location, not the airport location.” So I used a rideshare app to go the 20 minutes to the proper facility, and got the price I was promised. But - are you freaking KIDDING ME? It costs 4 times as much for the same car, with the same company, if you rent it from the airport location instead? price gouging, anyone??? On the plus side, once I was at the proper location, the transaction was very smooth and the clerk very helpful

I couldn't reach support. No live people. They messed up my booking and when I went to cancel it online they tried to charge me 400. So I had to call my credit card company to dispute. They someone called me from the company to confirm I was taking the car two days prior to the booking and was a complete dock saying it was my fault. Do not do business with this company

Top tips for hiring a car in Hartford

  • Rent a car for your trip to Hartford and enjoy the benefits of maximum freedom. The city includes sights like the Mark Twain House & Museum and various golf courses nestled in the surroundings – both are best reached with your own four wheels. Another reason why a hire car is a good idea upon coming to Hartford is that travelers can easily explore the surrounding areas as well, such as Providence, which is one and a half hours from Hartford; New Haven at the coast (40 minutes by car); or New York, which is a 2-hour car ride away.
  • When you fly into Connecticut and land at Bradley International Airport, picking up a hire car is a convenient move, as Hartford is about 25 miles from the airport and easily reached via the I-91 S in just over twenty minutes. The airport has agencies like Avis, Alamo, or Hertz onsite and all agencies offer complimentary shuttle services from the terminal to their respective service desks.
  • Hartford is a lovely and car-friendly city with broad and well-maintained roads in most places. However, winter can bring lots of snow and ice to the area and it is imperative to be properly prepared. Make sure the hire car has winter tires and even snow chains in the trunk – especially if you want to venture out into the countryside. Adjust your speed when there is snow and refrain from sudden braking or accelerating. Also bear in mind that, due to piled up snow on the sides of the road, streets may be narrower and cars harder to see at intersections.
  • Hartford also has a rush hour during weekdays when driving, if possible, should be avoided. In the mornings, rush hour usually starts at 7:30 am and ends at 9 am. In the afternoon, it is between 4:30 and 6:30 pm, so always plan ahead of time, especially when going to the airport.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Hartford for $72 or less
  • Book your rental car in Hartford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Hartford are around 17% cheaper than other car types, on average
