Sep. 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

I noticed at pick up that the wheel cover was missing. I took a pic as suggested by the attendant, if I found any issues with it. When I arrived at my destination, I was asked if I had a flat tire along the way. I told him no that the wheel cover was missing when I picked it up. He told me that I was driving with a donut. I was shocked as it didn't appear smaller than the other tires and I had driven for 4 hours and 260 miles at top speeds of 75 mph. I have no idea if there was another spare in the trunk, the flat tire, or nothing. Fortunately nothing happened, but could have been ugly and never should have been rented out in that condition.

Pros:

Staff very friendly, pick up easy, convenient location, no line.

Cons:

Car was a bit dirtier than I had expected, coffee stains on ceiling that I didn't notice until later. Nobody in garage during pickup or dropoff, but as long as they don't charge me for someone else's mess, I'm ok with that.

Lady behind the counter was super friendly considering the Covid-19 changes in effect

Cons:

This has nothing to do with the rental company, just the location... the airport has limited access, only one door is unlocked to enter, just made for a lot of extra walking

Pros:

We reserved a van from the airport but was able to pick up right at the local Williston Road Enterprise for the same price. This location was easier for us as we were able to leave our smaller car there while away. Great price! I called this location a couple of times and employees were helpful.

Nov. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The woman at the counter spoke very good English.

Cons:

You must drive into a garage where there is only a small sign posted, that applies to all car rental companies, which you must stop and read, and it is on a curve where cars are blindly coming around and you must stop, block traffic, and read the four steps of 1) parking the car in the appropriate area, 2) cleaning it out, 3) writing down the mileage and 4) locking it, noting the number of your space, and returning the keys to the rental counter. What it doesn't say is 1) your parking space is far away 2) the rental counter is across the street in the main terminal downstairs on the other end 3) the escalators don't work and 4) have fun waiting in line to turn in all this information you are supposed to provide.

Pros:

- Quick and easy - Good price (note there may be fees on top)

Cons:

- Couldn't change the pick up and drop off times to be true without changing the price and adding $200 - Returning the car was kind of confusing - Charged for fees I didn't know existed (late drop off, not driving enough miles, etc)

First of all, there were no Dollar agents at the rental service and the service was handled through Hertz. Returned the rental car one day early and they stated that there would be no refund since the transaction was made through Kayak. Extremely poor customer service.

Pros:

It was great on the Burlington, VT end. The worst at the New Bern, NC end

Cons:

Got to New Bern, NC to return the car and no attendant could be found. Waited almost an hour and no one showed at the counter nor did they answer phone when I tried that. Left key and car. Receipt emailed me charged different rates than quoted thru Hertz on paperwork when car picked up. Tried calling Hertz and couldn’t get a person. Will call Credit card company to negate charges.

6.0 Good

Apr. 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The car quality and initial service was stellar.

Cons:

There was a $300 unexplained charge on my card as well as and increase that surpassed what was shared upon upgrading my initial reservation - totaling 3 separate payments, 1 of which was sensible, the next which was a more-pricey-than-disclosed upgrade, and the last seemingly unwarranted. I'll be reaching out to the customer support team for an explanation on the last payment, but I was very disappointed in the general lack of accurate information regarding costs throughout.

Jul. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Pickup was not good since the desk closed at 4 and our flight arrived at 6:30. We were forced to spend a night in the only hotel that would take us due to the quarantine of outside visitors to Vermont. The hotel bent the rules to let us stay, otherwise we would not have had a place to stay to pick up the car next morning. I should note that all the other rental desks were open when we arrived.

Cons:

The desk could have been staffed until the last arrival.

Pros:

I want to command the staff member at the Burlington Airport Budget rental agency, who waited for me to arrive from my late flight to complete my rental. I was the only passenger she was waiting for, I very much appreciate her kindness and very pleasant demeanor despite keeping her away from her family for me. I do not know her name, but that picked up my rental at around 10:30 PM on April 8, 2020 from Burlington, Vermont Airport.

Cons:

Nothing.

For older and physically impaired users, better description of the size, leg room, comfort and entry and exits are needed. We may not know the car name and type. To us mid-sized means a roomy sedan not a compact car. Our expectations include an odometer, easy adjustment of the steering wheel and seats. This car was like driving a roller skate. We hit our heads getting in the car, banged our knees on the dashboard and I struggled to get out of the car. Also, personnel need to offer to show the car features and explain them. We didn’t know how to remove the ignition key!

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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Burlington for C$ 107 or less
  • Book your rental car in Burlington at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Burlington are around -30% cheaper than other car types, on average
