Cons: Thrifty not located in terminal. When i asked at another counter for rhe locationthe guy laughed and said the shuttle stops running at 12am and they were off site. So i asked the other agencies in the aireport and found the same grade car for 1/2 the . Price.

Ok for the money
Pros: I received a base model Altima which was ok & I liked the price. I didn't need a car since I was staying downtown, but it was helpful since it was cold out.
Cons: The car reeked of cigarette smoke. I had to make sure to tell the agent so I wouldn't be charged for the "smoking fee".
8.8 Excellent
18 Feb. 2016
Pros: Fast service, car was as promised, price OK
Cons: When booking at Kayak please make it easier to see this is off-terminal, that caused a major hassle for us. I don't like having to pay extra for a second driver - it does not cost the car company anything, if anything it makes for safer use. It would make sense if we were going to take the car and drive all day, in which case two drivers can put more wear and tear on the car. But how often is that the case with a rental car? $13 a day for a second driver makes no sense.

Cons: My flight on Friday was canceled because of weather. I called the dollar agent to indicate that my flight the next day would be arriving at 430 on Saturday. This was only for notification purposes. She apparently rebuilt the whole rental and instead of the original 8/3 through 8/10 for the discounted rate I receive through kayak, she rebooked it has a new 8/4 through 8/11 rate for $200 more than originally quoted. I was very upset. Fortunately when I called back a more knowledgeable agent apologized and since hurts was a sister company was able to find me a rate through hurt. It was still $40 more than the original quote I appreciated his effort.

Cons: I couldn't rent the car because even though I had a visa logo on my debit card it wasn't acceptable. So I am out $90 for insurances on a car I didn't get to drive

They went the extra mile
Pros: I made a mistake in my reservation and booked a rental from Burlington to Rochester, MN. I wanted to go to Rochester NY. Problem is Dollar doesn't have a location in Rochester NY. But, they found a minivan for my family of 6 and gave me a rental through Hertz (same company). The only problem was the Hertz rental quote was double the Dollar price. The great lady at the counter matched the Dollar price and we were on our way. This was completely my mistake but they made the effort to get us where we needed to go and at no extra cost to us. I decided to buy the extra insurance from them just as a way to say thank you. I will rent from them again.

27 Mar. 2018
Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: I felt like I was deceived on the pricing from the kayak webpage, saying the car would be around $20/day and when signing with all the hidden fees it was closer to $65/day. Poor form for either kayak and/or dollar to bait and switch prices.

Cons: There was no one at the Dollar Rental car counter and maybe no one.m at the airport working for dollar rental car. Also, I had the car for less than 10 hours and the car was 70 bucks. Felt overpriced.

Fee for additional drivers if you book through Car
Cons: We booked a Hertz rental through carrentals.com (via Kayak). Be aware that if you book through that site, Hertz will charge you $13+/day for another driver and WILL NOT waive that. (This is true even if the person is a spouse.) This was a very unhappy surprise and was not disclosed anywhere.

1 May 2017
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Hertz changed their debt card policy in january so that in order to use a debit card at an airport location you needed a boarding pass. The girl at the counter, Margaret (in Burlington airport) was very unhelpful and told me that she could not refund the 106 I had already paid for the reservation. She told me that if I had 24 hours notice I could use a debit at at a Shelb road location, but that she could not help me. I walked over to the enterprise desk and the people there were helpful and got me into one of their cars with my Debit card. When I tried to get my money back I called Kayak adn then was shipped to priceline ultimately back to hertz where finally a nice man was able to tell me he would refund my money. But that said, I have not yet received that refund after several days.

Did not have the vehicle I rented
Cons: Hertz didn't have the vehicle I rented. I specifically needed a SUV and they tried putting me in a car. Furthermore they advised since this was booked on a third party site and not with them direct there was nothing they could do. Hertz had a SUV available but they advised this would be an upgrade and cost more money. They wouldn't even help me with a refund and directed me back to the site I booked with. The Hertz employee directed me to a different company where I was able to rent a SUV but it was still more then I booked for initially (but less then the "upgrade" Hertz wanted me to take to rent their SUV. After one failed attempt at the desk and two phone calls I was able to get Hertz to agree to refund the money that was paid direct to them from the beginning. Although Hertz agreed the money would be refunded it has not been credited back to my account at the time I wrote this review.

Longest dropoff ever
Cons: There was one customer in front of me, and I don't know how long she had been there when I arrived. I prefer to drop off the key and actually speak to a human being to ensure everything is all scared away. The clerk could clearly see I was holding a hertz key, but still I waited 10 minutes while she tried to track down a specialty vehicle for the other customer, and only after 10 minutes did I interrupt and asked "Excuse me, I'm just dropping off a car, here is the key, do you need anything else" She stated she needed the mileage on the car and that was it. It took less than 10 seconds. This could have been handled easily with a quick "Dropping off?" 10 minutes prior.

19 Jul. 2017
Great counter customer service
Pros: I liked that someone didn't hover over me when I checked the car out and in. I like that they trusted me. I really like the fact that I didn't have to stress about filling up car. And really liked the fact that Hertz didn't try to make money off of gas. In fact they charged me less than what I could buy it for. That alone will make me use Hertz again.
Cons: It would be nice to have a map like the olden days, and a pen if asked to write down mileage

Cons: They didn't have the vehicle I had reserved and I had to go to another car rental agency to get a different car ... I want my money back.

Top tips for renting a car in Burlington

  • Burlington sits on the eastern side of Lake Champlain and is your gateway to an extensive list of outdoor activities that include hiking, kayaking, trail riding, skiing, and bouldering. Deciding to rent a car during your time in Burlington will prove to be fruitful, as the stunning Mount Mansfield State Forest and lakeside landscapes are begging to be explored. Having access to a car provides you with the most flexibility to pursue the activities you want to do, regardless of their location and remoteness.
  • Burlington International Airport is located just over three miles from the downtown district, meaning you can find yourself at the trendiest bars and restaurants in town just minutes after getting off your flight. Use KAYAK to browse the best deals from an extensive list of rental agencies available at Burlington International Airport, all of which have counters located on the main floor of the arrival terminal, next to the baggage claim area.
  • The glorious hills and crisp northern climate makes Burlington an ideal area for cyclists. It is important while driving to be respectful to those you share the road with, providing extra caution if there is not a separated bike lane. Be mindful that, while it is usually legal to turn right on a red light, if a red arrow is indicated you must not turn until you have a green arrow.
  • Rush hour is a largely foreign concept to those who live in Burlington. While roads can experience increased traffic during the peak summer holiday period, allowing a few extra minutes to reach your destination is all that is necessary. Due to the beautiful parklands and mountains that surround the area, Burlington is known to have lots of falling leaves during the fall season. Be careful when driving if leaves are present on the roads, as they can reduce braking effectiveness.
