Drop-off and pickup in Parkersburg, WV and Canton, OH were both quick and easy; neither Chicago (O'Hare and West Loop) experience was positive: slow and unfriendly at O'Hare, and unexpectedly closed office with confusing drop-off at West Loop.

They allowed the booking though the car wasn't available. Don't rent cars you don't have.

My experience was what you hope your experience is when renting a car. -Clear instruction and expectations -A clean and maintained automobile -A simple process of pick up and drop off.

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop-off was way better than pickup. He listened and was knowledgeable and professional, even though he was training a new employee. And super fast.

Cons:

There was a clean sticker on the door jam and the inside looked cleaned but doubt it was sanitized (due to other behavior). The windows had a lot of spray water spots (not dried after car wash) so visibility was hampered by car lights and sunshine. Had to stop and clean them. The rental agent wanted to charge extra for listing spouse, which we questioned, and then she said oh maybe we don't. There could be more transparency on fees, insurance, charges, customer service and information. Seems shady and like trying to pad the bill tactics. Just have clear and trustworthy info spelled out. Tire tread was very low and we had rain during most of the drive. Concerning. Reserved an intermediate car and could not see anything on the display screen like Auto Android or Google maps or Waze. This is 2020! Sheesh. And we could not get a simple answer on insurance, or the benefits or things to consider or why to choose your insurance. Very strange like we should not get Hertz ins. We will not rent from Hertz again. And it was $6+ more than the online reservation amount and no reason given when we asked.

Cons:

Nickel and diming is somewhat of a problem. The advertised rate disappears quickly.

Pros:

Everything went smoothly with drop-off and pick-up. No surprise fees.

Cons:

Wish the cost of a secondary driver wasn't so high, especially considering their having full coverage insurance. Think it was fifteen bucks or so a day, maxing out at six days.

4.4 Okay

Pros:

I reserved a car two weeks before picking it up then was called the morning of to tell me there was no car available.

Cons:

Do not let people book without available vehicles!!! So upsetting. My trip ended up leaving 5 hours later.

Didnt care for the car nothing wrong with it just not our kind of car. Employees were kinda and very helpful as well as the manager will be returning for future rentals

KAYAK

Cons:

They did not honor my reservation. They did not have a car for me. Instead they tried to sell me a more expensive rental and then demanded I get the $100/ day insurance that is supposed to be “optio. I walked away with no car. I had to take an Uber to Pittsburgh instead. It was the worst experience.

Oct. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Mark was "out of cars" and rebooked me an hour before pickup to the airport, which was inconvenient. He claimed it wouldn't cost any more. Instead, the airport had higher fees and taxes, and the person working there told me Mark regularly reschedules everyone to the airport when they have a one-way trip because he prefers round-trip rentals at his franchise location. I called Mark who refused to help me. Check-out person at the airport wasn't helpful either.

Top tips for renting a car in Akron

  • Akron has a good mix of parks, nature preserves, tourist sites, and bustling bar and restaurant areas, and many of these spots are accessible only by personal vehicle. If you’re visiting the city, we recommend booking a car rental in Akron to make the most of your trip. Rather than rely on city buses, which wind up almost doubling (or more) some commutes, a rental allows you the autonomy and flexibility to enjoy whichever aspects of the city are most appealing to you. What’s more, rentals tend to be a cost-effective mode of transportation as compared with taxis and rideshares, whose fares are often subject to surge pricing.
  • You’ll likely want to pick up your Akron car rental when you fly into Akron-Canton Regional Airport (CAK). Here, there are service desks for a range of rental car companies, including Alamo, Budget, Avis and National. To find the vehicle you’ve booked through KAYAK, simply head to the baggage claim area and, once there, take a right. At the far end, you’ll find representatives from the car rental companies that will get you settled into your vehicle.
  • Like many major cities, Akron’s streets are replete with vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians, all competing for road space. While driving here, we recommend that you stay vigilant of non-motor road users. Although there are several spots for road crossings, you may find people crossing the street at undesignated locations, particularly in areas where there are bars and restaurants. Additionally, while there is ample space for cyclists, they may come into the main flow of traffic. Also take note that bicyclists will often indicate turns through hand gestures.
  • If you have the flexibility to determine the time at which you arrive at your destination, we recommend choosing a time outside of the city’s rush hours. Morning rush hour in Akron is typically between 7:30am and 8:30am. In the later afternoons, you can expect rush hours from about 3:30pm to roughly 5:30pm.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Akron for C$ 38 or less
  • Book your rental car in Akron at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Akron are around 10% cheaper than other car types, on average
