They never called me. I get to the location. They don’t have my vehicle. They forgot to inform me. I missed my flight so I had to drive down. Which I was trying to avoid. I was late to my sons birthday. You guys need to compensate me. I am livid. This is ridiculous. The ball was dropped so hard. They even told me they would call me back with a rental and they never did. Worst experience. Never recommending

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

No car available once I got there, waste of an uber then I had to run down the street to try and make it to Enterprise before they closed. Staff seemed helpful to begin with, then just left me sitting there waiting time when they didn't have any cars. Never renting from that location again.

Pros:

Easy to book

Cons:

Almost everything. I didn't have a mask and the guy behind the counter told me to go away. I was just dropped off by a uber and the nearest place selling masks was a 1 mile walk. He never offered to let me do the transaction outside. After I got in the car two minutes down the road a warning light came on indicating the car had been in an accident. I had to call HERTZ and photo the warning light so as to not be blamed for something I didn't do. When I got to the airport drop off no one was around and no sign for the key drop. I had to guess what to do and had no confirmation of an inspection of the car, just walked out assuming I did what I was supposed to do.

Pros:

One of the staff was friendly. The lady the originally took care of me, she seems like she didn’t want to be there. She gave a a dirty and smelly car. Also the car she gave me was dangerous because it was raining really hard and the windshield wipers, you can tell, they needed to be cleaned. Moving forward I got a new replacement

Pros:

The staff was very friendly and helpful

Cons:

WAY too EXPENSIVE!!!! I paid over $1,200 for renting a van for 7 days. That is $800 over what I should have had to pay, had another rental car business in the area had a van that I could have rented. I will not be renting from you again, because of the outrageous expense.

Pros:

Associate was friendly and helpful.

Cons:

I wanted to extend the rental for a week and was told that it would be $900 (for a midsize car). Took my business elsewhere for less than $200. This caused me an unnecessary 90 minute round trip and cost Budget a week’s rental fee. Also, the rental location in Fredericksburg is not well described; it’s buried in Sears Auto Center.

Top tips for renting a car in Fredericksburg

  • Popular Fredericksburg car rentals like Hertz and Avis are located near Fredericksburg Amtrak Station. The station is located 0.6 miles (1km) away from the city center if you drive your rental vehicle via Caroline St and about 0.7 (1.1km) miles if you drive via Sophia St or Prince Edward St. However, it takes approximately 3 minutes despite the route you follow to the city center. The convenience of booking car rentals near the train station is the ease of picking up and returning them when the rental period is over. Again, you can choose cheap car rentals in Fredericksburg near the train station entrance.
  • Safe driving is a priority by Fredericksburg lawmakers. Thus, driving under the influence (DUI) is a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by law. You risk a 12-month jail term and a $2,500 fine. Again, you’re required to attend the Virginia Alcohol Safety Actions Program (VASAP) for alcohol treatment. In addition, your driver’s license may be suspended for one year. However, you risk more consequences if you violate this offense for a second time. When driving on Fredericksburg streets, you'll see police officers with breathalyzers during vehicle operations. Thus, avoid violating the rules by maintaining an alcohol level below 0.8%.
  • Driving to various destinations near Fredericksburg can be fun after renting a car. You can book cheap car rentals in Fredericksburg to save more on fuel to get to multiple attraction sites. Further, you enjoy the freedom and flexibility of driving rental cars, instead of public transport. Iconic sites to drive to, 82 miles (132km) northeast of Fredericksburg, are The Walters Art Museum or Max’s Taphouse in about 2h. Old Town Alexandria is about 41 miles (66km) northeast of the city and about a 1h 5min drive. Another place to visit using your rental car is Lee's House, 42 miles (68km) north of the city in approximately 1h 3min.
  • Renting a car in Fredericksburg, VA, is an excellent means of getting around the city. Besides alleviating maintenance and car insurance costs, you also enjoy the freedom of getting to whichever destination you want, such as Pioneer Museum or Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, at whatever time you find convenient. Furthermore, you also get to choose the brand and model of the car you prefer, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure.
  • Visitors can enter Fredericksburg via Washington Reagan National Airport, located about 50 miles north of the city, Baltimore/Washington International Airport (98 miles north), and Washington Dulles (45 miles north). There are car rentals in Fredericksburg offices in all these airports at on-airport rental car counters located in the parking garage A, including Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Avis, Alamo, Hertz, Budget, and Payless.
  • Driving around Fredericksburg can be challenging, considering the city is a commuter-heavy destination. That means you'll have to deal with larger vehicles, such as buses, trailers, and transport vans, as well as pedestrians in the city center and as you pass through residential areas. Be sure to be alert, patient, and observant of traffic rules.
  • You'll experience different weather and road conditions throughout the year. During winter, there are high chances of skidding due to snow and ice. We advise you to break earlier and pressing the pedal gently. Heavy thunderstorms and rainfall during summer can reduce road visibility. Therefore, drive slower and be alert. There are usually many cars on the roads during winter. It would be best to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. Consider it a buffer zone for reacting to a potential road hazard.
  • Book your rental car in Fredericksburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Fredericksburg are around 22% cheaper than other car types, on average
