Pros:

Friendly service at the ick-up location; VERY pleased that when I called the 1-800 number to modify my reservation, I actually talked to a real person in under 5 minutes. Overall, Alamo has provided the best rental service that I have experienced in a long time. Will definitely use them again.

Cons:

The Kansas City location required additional photo IDs (fraud prevention). This didn't affect me, but others may need to be aware of the requirement (which was not advertised in advance).

Cons:

Alamo was closed when we arrived in Kansas City. The rental car company to the right next counter over had to handle the paperwork. I had already booked and paid online for an easy pick up. They made us jump through hoops while my 90 year old parents had to wait for us.

Pros:

Cons:

Me having a mobile app to track my reservation better. I had to search through emails and track down information. This is a problem for me not with the service. Alamo was amazing and I will definitely rent from them again. Thank you

Pros:

The staff was nice, but there were not enough so wait times were long

Cons:

I got a car that was dirty (inside and out) and that WAS NOT FULL OF GAS, but was down almost a quarter tank. When I pointed this out, I just got a shrug. Bet if I returned it down a quarter tank the reaction would be different

They let me close any vehicle in the line so i chose a mini van. It was perfect for my needs, clean and new. Return was super quick at the MCI Airport. Never had to wait at all for the shuttle bus. Shuttle was about 5 min from the airport.

They did not have our car ready at the time it was reserved, and did not have an idea of when it would be ready. Therefore, we had to make alternate travel arrangements the same day, over the holidays, which was a huge issue.

Customer service was poor. I was charged for pick-up and drop-off at 2 different locations even after she confirmed with me I was dropping off at the same location. I will now have to dispute it. She didn't explain that even after my initial payment of $201, that my card would be charged another $261 for some reason and when I called customer service the next day, the guy explained that it was a deposit that wouldn't be charged after I return the car. However, the extra charge remains for inter-city drop-off. And, the person at the desk pointed out and told us to select a car from the "right" but if there weren't any to go to the "left" and when we got outside, there weren't any cars in the Compact area at all! So we just got in one! I still don't know if we chose correctly or if I am to be charged again! Not a choice I want to make with no help after a long day of traveling. No explanation given for extra charges.

We gave 3 days of cancellation notice because of SW airlines having there pilot problems and they kept $50.00 instead of refusing our full amount. It’s a bad policy and provides a bad service. I will never use Hertz again.

Contact Super Shuttle for your trip to/from airport to pick up vehicle. It's AWESOME! Also, if you don't rent your car from the airport, it's a whole lot less expensive. Like half as much!

Pros:

The pickup process was very quick. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was considerably less to pick up at the downtown location vs the airport- $200 less!

Cons:

The downtown location didn't have a way to return the rental to them late Saturday or Sunday. I had to pay extra to take it to the airport, less than 1-2 day rental, but still a drag.

Pros:

The counter was closed prior to the scheduled closing time. We were unable to pick up our rental under this reservation and had to check nearby counters that were still open to try to find an available rental. The entire fiasco ended up costing us more than double the original reservation. How will we receive compensation for the unacceptable incompetence?

Cons:

You could have remained open until your scheduled closing time or at least until our scheduled pickup. We called ahead once the plane was on the ground and no one ever picked up despite it being 15 minutes prior to our reservation.

Or, if you're going to partner with another rental agency and defer your customers to their desk, make sure that desk is staffed.

Top tips for hiring a car in Kansas City

  • Kansas City, like most cities in the U.S., depends highly on car transportation. There simply is no more efficient or better way to get around town, whether you plan on catching a Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium or you are just going out to eat.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car for your time in Kansas City? Travelers with flights landing at Kansas City International Airport can take the hire car shuttle from the airport terminals to the hire car center, where they will find numerous hire car companies.
  • Though Kansas City is not that far north, it still experiences some pretty harsh winters. Snow and ice can quickly blanket roads, and drivers should be prepared for wintery weather if they visit in the colder months of the year. Drivers not confident in their ability to handle the snow should make sure to drive extra carefully and to check the weather regularly so they aren’t caught out in a storm.
  • Nobody likes to be stuck in rush hour and, with a bit of preparation, nobody has to be. In Kansas City the morning rush hour goes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and then picks back up again in the afternoon at around 3:30 p.m. and goes until 7:00 p.m. throughout much of the metropolitan area. Some of the streets to avoid during rush hour include I-35, the southern portion of I-435 and I-70. The worst streets are all highways primarily because of the high volume of commuters going into and out of the city for work.
  • Book your rental car in Kansas City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Kansas City are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average
