Dec. 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Pick-up area was easy to find, and overall the staff I interacted with were professional and friendly.

Cons:

The signage about which drop-off area to use was apparently incorrect, which made things confusing and tiring after my trip.

7.6 Good

Cons:

It would have been helpful to have the drop off procedures for when an attendant wasn't present explained during the pickup.

Cons:

The employees on the phone...both times, at the desk, and at pick up and drop off. Very rude.

I had to cancel my rental based on not having a major credit card. I went with Avis whom was more accommodating. I will not be renting with Dollar in the future.

Pros:

4.4 Okay

Aug. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was nice, although it smelled pretty weird.

Cons:

The car cost more than advertised, by about $100, so it was almost double of what I expected. The insurance I bought online with the car (3rd party) I was told was useless, and they were known to not honor the purchase if something were to happen, so that's $30 I won't get back. All in all it was a lot of wasted money.

2.0 Mediocre

Nov. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was terrible. As I was walking up to rent the vehicle they locked the door, looked at me, and left.

Cons:

The customer service. I was treated much better at Alamo where I ended up having to rent from because I was not able to get my rental when I needed it from Thrifty.

6.8 Good

Sep. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Thrifty staff member was very pleasant and helpful. Vehicle was very clean and ready to go.

Cons:

If you rental agencies would offer something besides those cheap Chrysler products. I realize they practically give them to you (how else could they get rid of them), but they are very uncomfortable and noisy. Luckily I only need a van once in a great while. And thankfully you have better quality vehicles to rent when I need a sedan or coupe.

Sep. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff is great, very nice people. There was some candy between the seat and console and a stick of old spice deodorant ( I guess a 90 year old man rented the car before me because who the hell uses old spice anymore!!!) Anyway one of the candy came out in thew floor board and I ended up stepping on it and crushing into the carpet which was a real pain to clean up but I did get it cleaned.

Cons:

Honestly the car could have been a little less expensive, almost $700 for a month is pretty high and as long as you are charging that much I mean would it be too much to ask for the car to actually be clean?

well - it was in Springfield, Ohio. First - they substituted a "similar" vehicle with 70% LESS cargo capacity. Then when I refused it, they assured me the proper vehicle would be there within 3 days; they'll call me when it's in. 11 days later, still waiting. Tried a SECOND time (yeah, yeah my bad) I can only hope that they come through THIS time. 1. substitute SIMILAR, not "what you've got" 2. CALL if you say you're going to, even if to say "oops" 3. If you know you can't meet expectations, at least TELL me and let me make other arrangements.

Top tips for renting a car in Dayton

  • Dayton is like the majority of cities in the U.S. in that it was designed for automobiles. Public transportation in the city is severely lacking, especially during evenings and on weekends. If you want to make the most out of your time in the city, it is highly recommended that you rent a vehicle. For instance, if you would like to visit the National Museum of the US Air Force, it is just an 11-minute drive from downtown Dayton. However, on public transport, it would take up to 30 minutes to get there.
  • For travelers looking to pick up a rental car after landing at Dayton International Airport, you can find the rental car desk in the airport’s Baggage Claim Area.
  • Though most don’t associate Dayton with wintery weather, it certainly has its fair share of snowstorms in the winter. Travelers visiting the city in winter should make sure to keep the rough weather in mind when planning any itineraries, especially if you aren’t from a snowy climate. However, with a bit of planning and caution, the snow is no hazard and it may even add a nice touch to your trip.
  • Rush hour traffic is a mixed bag in Dayton, especially if you plan on heading to Cincinnati or other neighboring cities. Morning rush hour traffic can start as early as 6:30 a.m. some mornings and slows down by around 9:00 a.m. on a typical day. The afternoon and evening peak usually goes from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Dayton for C$ 57 or less
  • Book your rental car in Dayton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
