KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Hattiesburg

  • Using car rentals in Hattiesburg is more advantageous than using your car or relying on public transportation. One advantage of relying on car rentals in Hattiesburg when going on vacation or business trips is that it helps saves your car from tear and wear, which in turn lowers the maintenance and repair costs of your car over time. Additionally, rental cars use less fuel than your old car because they have energy-saving technology. If you are a visitor to Hattiesburg, relying on rental cars allows you to travel easily through different parts of the city.
  • Travelers driving cheap car rentals in Hattiesburg should be aware of the busy streets and intersections before beginning their great trip. Pay careful attention when driving at busy intersections such as Goodman Road and US Highway 51, Highway 49 and Creosote Road, and Goodman Road and Airways Boulevard to avoid accidents. Most cyclists jump into these roads without checking on the oncoming vehicles. Also, focus on your side mirrors because most drivers overlap carelessly in these areas. Stay focused on these busiest streets because they feature school zones, and students regularly cross the roads.
  • Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport is the major Airport near Hattiesburg, located 12 miles from the city center. Several car rentals in Hattiesburg are available o travelers from PIB Airport. Some of the car rental agencies that guarantee travelers from PIB Airport quality and affordable services include; Enterprise Rent-A-Car (located along U S Highway 98), Hertz Rent-A-Car (located along Terminal Dr at PIB Airport), and Avis Rent-A-Car (located along US Highway 49). Apart from Hertz Rent A Car, which has an on-site office in the airport, the other two agencies are located a few miles from the airport.
  • When moving in your cheap car rentals in Hattiesburg, consider the annual festivals and events in the city, such as the Downtown Crawfish Jam, Egg Roll Bowl, Pinnacle Award, and the Annual Pine Belt Women's Expo. Due to the large crowds attending these events, the majority of the roads in downtown, such as 10th Avenue North, 1st Street, and A C Jones Road, are permanently closed. To get to your location, you will have to take diversions along 6th Avenue, AV Hatten Road, and Ada Drive, which operates during these festivities. While driving your rental car on the weekdays, be prepared for some traffic delays apart from the annual festivities.
  • Drivers are always advised to adhere to road rules when driving in Hattiesburg. When driving in Hattiesburg, the law prohibits you from using your phone. Failure to adhere to this law may land you on the wrong side of the law. Additionally, there are numerous pedestrians and cyclists in Hattiesburg. Drivers are advised to be keen when driving in the city to avoid running into careless cyclists, motorists, and pedestrians.
  • While renting a car in Hattiesburg, you should always be aware of your child's safety and set your mobile phone on with a loudspeaker. Children between the ages of 3 and 12, or shorter than 150 cm or 4" 9", must always sit in specific car safety seats and in the back seat according to city law. Travelers with Hattiesburg car rentals can use child seats, toddler seats, and booster seats at no charge from any car agency. If you want to use your mobile phone on major roads, keep it on a loudspeaker to avoid distractions while driving.
  • Using car rentals in Hattiesburg may be difficult in icy conditions. When driving in icy conditions, it would be hard to speed up in the city due to the dangers of black ice, which may, in return, lead to unwanted delays in the city. Apart from unwanted delays, you may be involved in a car accident if you slam on your breaks while driving in icy conditions. Break slamming may cause your car to skid and run into other nearby cars or passing pedestrians or cyclists. Therefore, using car rentals in Hattiesburg in icy conditions may be inconvenient.

Pros:

They weren’t. Made me wait a few hours to go get my vehicle an oil change after I booked over 2 weeks prior to.

Cons:

When I got back to return my vehicle, I had to wait an hour because nobody was at the establishment. There was only a sign up saying they’d be back by 4. With a number to contact. That number never picked up. And I waited over an hour to return the vehicle while having a ride to take me home wait

They didn't have the car that I reserved. I reserved a luxury car and they didn't have a car on the lot period. I ended up having to get a compact suv, in which was the only vehicle available. The staff was nice, though.

Cons:

When I arrived to pickup my rental no one was in the office for at least 5+ minutes. When the desk clerk arrived she informed me she had no cars available to fulfill my reservation. After waiting for 10-15 minutes I was given a mini van to drive to the airport. It was filthy and only had a driver and passenger seat so I couldn’t drive anyone else if I wanted to. Overall bad transaction that I wouldn’t do again.

The lovely black woman who checked me in was the best (I am sorry I forgot your name!) But she understood that I was on a tight budget, and was able to patiently help me reschedule my rental to fit with the limited funds I had. She was amazing and I thank her for her help.

The pickup process was extremely slow . They were overwhelmed and under staff I understand, but while being helped the customer representative in the middle of helping me helped someone over the phone while I was standing at the front desk. I was already running late no I’m annoyed but he continues his conversation with the person on the phone, not considering I was already reserved and took less time. Found out my car wasn’t even ready for pickup after being 3hrs late. So I’m red hot , they were just now starting to clean the car and that car was trashed. To know fault of their own but Nissan Versa are trashy cars, as small as they are they’re crappy in gas.
