Pros:

Easy booking and pickup for the car. Clean and reliable cars to rent!

Cons:

The rate was fair but additional charges like gas was not expected as I was not mentioned about tank fill up. Over charged me for fuel. And drop off location needs to be more.

Pros:

Staff was fine at pickup and drop off (especially at drop off)

Cons:

The only slight annoyance was the number of times the counter rep suggested I purchase their insurance. I understand it’s their job to present this (profitable) option, but two offers is enough, I didn’t need the extra attempts. But this did not change my perception that this was a very nice rental

Cons:

I didn’t like how they processed everything, too fast and didn’t have a choice of car. I would of liked a compact with trunk not hatch. And again fast with the check out, I wanted to pay cash and they didn’t even give us a chance to ask if we could. They were only concerned how many miles I put on, and that I parked in the return section. Mind you it’s snowing outside and their parking lot is a mess. Safety first? Lol mileage should be my last concern, And besides I’m paying.

Car was obviously smoked in even though they claim a non smoking fleet.. It was like driving an ashtray with leather seats. Froze $200 of credit for 3 days past my drop off as opposed to date of pick up. Was very odd.

Cons:

We had car trouble with the car we originally rented. But Ben and Doug from the Hertz in Roanoke came and picked us up quickly and got us going in a new car. They were wonderful. The emergency roadside assistance was poor. We were on hold for over half an hour before we got through. Then it took them over an hour and a half to pick up the car. Fortunately due to Ben and Doug, we got another car and didn’t have to wait for the tow.

KAYAK

Pros:

I made an online reservation for a one-way rental and booked a non-refundable motel room in my destination city. Got a call the next morning that they didn't have a car for me, that they didn't do a one-way rental between the cities. Personnel were polite and professional and apologized.

Cons:

Their reservation system sucks. It lets you make a reservation that the company can't fulfill. I needed a one-way rental to pick up a motorcycle I had bought a couple months ago. I tried several companies including Enterprise which I usually use for one-way rentals. None were accepting a one-way rental until I tried Hertz and made a reservation. I then booked a non-refundable motel room in my destination city. Got a call from Hertz the next morning that they didn't have a car for me, that they didn't do a one-way rental between the cities my reservation was for. Personnel were polite, professional and apologized. I told them their reservation system sucked and they agreed. I got the impression this was a routine occurrence - their reservation system accepting reservations that could not be fulfilled.

Pros:

Car was perfectly clean, and had better features (forward automatic braking) than most rental cars.

Cons:

Cons:

I think it is immoral to charge me $10 a gallon for a full tank of gas, when I did not use the full tank. I sort of understand charging a premium. The gas supply is no doubt right next to the wash and detail area, so it cannot cost much more for the service folks to gas up the car. It's just another way, along with selling insurance, that the Hertz car rental system gouges the unsuspecting.

Pros:

I can’t really complain about the rate. It was quite affordable.

Cons:

Even if you are paying a good rate, you should expect that the car would at least be safe. The front tires had NO tread left and i was having to drive in the rain! Every time I would start from a stop the tires would spin out!!! Yikes! And when breaking the antilock breaks would engage. Definitely one of the scariest drives I’ve driven!!! Also, I had no idea that the location was NOT on airport like all of the other locations! Someone should apprise you of this so you don’t miss your flight!!!

Top tips for renting a car in Allentown

  • When you plan your vacation to Allentown, one of the major concerns you may have is whether you’ll be able to fulfill your itinerary within your stipulated timeframe. More so if you have to use public transportation. There’s a certain flexibility and convenience that comes with having a car as you cruise about in a new city. Most rental cars in Allentown are equipped with GPS and navigational technology, so getting lost is nothing to worry about. You also get the opportunity to experience some of the hidden gems inside and outside the city. For example, the Mattress Factory, which houses one-of-a-kind art installations and exhibitions, is 31 miles away. You can also hit the road in your rental car and take in the scenery all the way to the Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle, located about 31 miles away as well.
  • Once you arrive at the Leigh Valley International Airport, you’ll have your pick from Allentown car rentals. The rental car counters can be found in the terminal close to the baggage claim. You’ll pick up your car outside the terminal, in the same location where you’ll bring it back when the trip is over. You can choose from multiple car rentals in Allentown, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Budget.
  • Once you hit the road in your Allentown rental car, some of the things you should be wary of are farm equipment and horse-drawn vehicles. Most of these vehicles are slow-moving, so if you’re not careful, they can present unfamiliar hazards. Most rural roads in Allentown may also be harder to maneuver because you’re likely to experience grassy berms and loose gravel. You may also come across unexpected turns and sharp dips, some of which may present driving challenges for new drivers to the area.
  • When driving in Allentown, the Airport Road northbound between Union Boulevard and Lloyd Street can be very congested, and you need to drive carefully here. Route 145 can also get backed up during high-traffic hours. The same goes for North 7th Street between West Union Street and West Green Street and eastbound route 222 Hamilton Boulevard close to North 15th Street. You may also want to be careful on South 4th Street and Union Boulevard, as the intersections can be quite hectic to maneuver.
  • Book your rental car in Allentown at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
