Top tips for hiring a car at La Crosse airport

  • One of the reasons that so many travelers choose to utilize car rental at La Crosse Airport (LSE) is because there are no public transportation options to get travelers from the airport to downtown La Crosse. While travelers certainly can take a taxi from the airport to the center of town, having a rental car is a much more cost-effective and convenient way to travel in this area, especially if you need to make several trips during your stay.
  • Car rental at La Crosse Airport is quite simple because the five major rental car companies that offer service at this airport all have customer service counters in the terminal building right adjacent to the baggage claim. What makes the process even easier is that all vehicles available for rent are right outside the terminal building in the adjacent parking lot.
  • The process of returning your car rental at La Crosse Airport is just as easy as the process of picking up a rental. Passengers should make their way to the parking lot at the airport and then park their car in one of the dedicated parking spots for your rental company. From that point, passengers can bring their keys and the contract inside the terminal building and drop them off with a staff member from the rental company or drop them in the dedicated dropbox for the rental company.
  • Because this is a smaller regional airport, trying to pick up your La Crosse Airport car rental when several flights arrive at this airport at the same time can often be challenging. It is also the case that picking up your rental can be a little more difficult during busy travel times such as a weekend or holiday period.
  • Book your car hire at La Crosse airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at La Crosse airport

  • What rental car companies are easiest at La Crosse Airport?

    Because all five of the rental car companies that operate at this airport are large brands that most travelers are familiar with, each is going to be quite easy to utilize for passengers. If you are a member of a loyalty rewards program for any of the rental car companies at the airport, this is the provider that you should choose, as being a member of these types of programs often means you can skip lines at counters and head straight to your vehicle.

  • What kind of amenities are available at the La Crosse Airport rental car center?

    Since this is a smaller regional airport, there's not a dedicated rental car center here. The bonus for passengers of this consolidated location is that all of the amenities of the airport are easily accessible when renting a car. This includes things such as complimentary Wi-Fi, plenty of dining and beverage options, a kid's play area, a nursing mother's room, a relief area for pets and service animals, as well as ample restroom facilities.

  • What type of documentation will I need to rent a car at La Crosse Airport?

    Most of the rental car companies at the airport will want drivers to be at least 25 years of age to rent a car, although drivers between the ages of 21 through 24 can rent cars with certain limitations on the type of car they can rent plus the possibility of additional fees. Drivers will need to present a valid driver's license issued in the United States plus, it is always a good idea to have a major credit card, although most locations here will accept debit cards with some restrictions, such as which types of cars you may rent using a debit card. For travelers that do not have a driver's license that was issued in the United States, they will need to present a driver's license from their country of origin as well as a passport, or they can also present a Canadian enhanced drivers license in the name of the person renting the vehicle.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at La Crosse airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from La Crosse airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, and National.

Cons:

Even though I requested online to pick up car at 10 am, email confirmation said noon. I had to call and inquire and was told weekend rate didn’t go into effect until noon, so had to pay $36+ more than anticipated.

Pros:

Friendly staff, knowledgeable and made things convenient. Even though I had a problem. Loved the vehicle Online booking, and no prepay needed, no cancellation fee.

Cons:

The false advertising on price...$180 online...but taxes and fees...OMG what am I an idiot to you. $240, when I was done. A 33% increase? And fees for what ,are these just made up?. How come the world population cannot speak clearly of the need for these items and where they derive? As a business if you are imposed upon by governance to set aside funds for some reason, you cannot simply pass that to your customer in a "Fee". This become a PRICE INCREASE. I own a business and do not charge a fee for hazardous wast, fire safety, potential acts of god etc. At that point I was trapped, (nice small print, faded btw) This reeks of a sincere attempt to be dishonest and barely follow the governing language. Try plain English, at a fifth grade understanding next time. Also, if you NEED a credit card and not a cash card, this MUST be displayed CLEARLY prior to any commitment or arrival at the location. I was lucky and was able to transfer funds from an account to my credit card after I arrived for pick up. Had I known I would have done this days in advance. I loved the overall experience but felt like I was being maipulated into a behavior.

Cons:

Our flight was cancelled at 3 am. I called Alamo to see what could be done and was told that it could be changed but would cost 500.00 more. No discussion. I tried to see if someone else could pick up our car as we could get a flight the next evening or that evening at a different airport-NO. I was told to call the local office and they were not opened There was no negotiation, no sympathy, no expression in voice. I spent a lot of time making my vacation plans and was very sad that they could not be worked out due to non negotiable phone center operators. (I tried twice)

I liked that there was another rental company nearby.

Place was closed at the hour booked. They had changed their hours and didn't update the website or Google maps. There was just a printed message with the new hours. Luckily was able to rent from a different company.

Cons:

We reserved a minivan to transport 7 people, 3 of them in car seats, from Lacrosse to Minneapolis for a family wedding. When we went to pick it up they did not have a van. Gave us an explorer with 7 seats but no room for anything else. Had to have two people and most bags get a ride with someone else. Enterprise said we could switch out the vehicle in Minneapolis. I spent and hour on the phone trying to work that out. They would not bring us the vehicle so we had to drive 40 minutes to the airport and wait 45 minutes to get that switch done and then 40 minutes back.

Pros:

The service desk lady was nice enough. The price was cheaper than Enterprise.

Cons:

I picked up my vehicle late at night. It was dark and it had been a long day for the service desk lady who admitted she hadn't inspected the car yet. She walked me out to the vehicle, there was no vehicle inspection performed. The Jeep Compass came with dents, cracked bumper corners, a broken fog lamp, missing panels from the bottom of doors, and an annoying change oil light. These were previously known as evidenced by the white X's around the damage. Throughout my 11-day trip I felt like the muffler must have had a hole in it because at 50 mph I felt I was driving a motorboat. Too loud!
