4.0 Okay5 Oct. 2020
Pros: Had to wait an hour in the cold standing in the lot waiting for the car. The attendant just came once and said we have your car in a few and the. Disappeared back in his booth and just ignored when ever I asked how long do I have to wait.Cons: Have my car ready and provide a discount, communication about the vehicle. Better customer service
10.0 Excellent14 Sep. 2020
Pros: The lady on phone was nice the airport people where nice it was clean in airport and easy to rent carCons: Nothing at all wpsh I could get capr apt airport without online reservation
4.0 Okay8 Sep. 2020
Pros: car was niceCons: -cars have been moved a long distance away, -extremely long wait to get car because not enough attendants, especially with disruptive customers in front of me -first car given had the check engine light on and made noises every five minutes. This was immediate -- it had a check engine light ten minutes after we pulled away -confusing process to exchange the car that was not streamlined and took longer than it should have.
9.6 Excellent24 Aug. 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful and friendly. Pick up and drop off was easy.Cons: Found a few readily visible trash items, including one in a cup holder, in a supposedly "highly cleaned vehicle."
8.4 Excellent14 Jul. 2020
Pros: Yes staff was great. Drop off... haven't received email receipt.Cons: Receiving email receipt promptly.
10.0 Excellent16 Mar. 2020
Pros: We were VERY tired and the gentlemen that provided our car was extremely pleasant and made sure that we were well cared for!
8.0 Excellent11 Mar. 2020
Pros: Staff was great.Cons: The blind car was smaller than advertised and made an upgrade necessary.
4.0 Okay6 Feb. 2020
Cons: I had a problem with my tire and took the car back to have it looked at. Instead of switching the car they filled the tire with air. A couple of days later the tire pressure gauge went off and the car was handling poorly. I had to pull off in a remote area. I called the roadside assistance and was on hold for half an hour. Finally the utter genius I was speaking to told me to drive to a location that was 70 miles away with a flat tire! In the end I had to call a service provider and pay! It was a terrible experience!
2.0 Mediocre1 Jan. 2020
Cons: They changed our car at last minute to a completely different level and we had to cancel.
9.6 Excellent22 Oct. 2019
Cons: Help understanding the toll bridges and mistakes in crossing them. There were dinks and large scratches on the car which no one checked and noted on my car. I had to find an attendant and have him logged them in. Otherwise, good experience.

4.4 Okay14 Jul. 2020
Cons: The agent at the desk kept trying to push me on the extra insurance that I didn’t need or want. When I got to my car, the sticker that sealed the drivers door was already broken and the car was not very clean. Since I had already been there over an hour I just took the car as is. When I got home, my husband found marijuana in the middle console. I called customer service to make them aware that the car wasn’t cleaned out from the previous renter and I was transferred around and put on hold for over an hour. I hung up and submitted and email complaint through the website and never heard anything back. When I returned the car, I told them again what had happened and the agent apologized. I was never offered anything more than that one apology after the fact. I will not rent from any of the Hertz companies again.
7.2 Good16 Apr. 2020
Pros: Good priceCons: Terrible outside uncovered location for car. Had to walk outside during a rain storm to lactate car. And the car was on the farthest point in the lot. Got soaked. I was told at drop off that an indoor garage is under construction.
8.8 Excellent2 Dec. 2019
Pros: April was terrific at the counterCons: I should have gotten a car with more pick up power, but that was my choice. there are hills
5.2 Okay15 Nov. 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: The line was incredibly long. Workers were not prepared for the amount of travelers seeking pickup. Had to wait more than an hour to pick the car up.
5.6 Okay29 Jul. 2019
Cons: I called after I made the reservation to get a larger car. They told me the price had actually decrease by $100. I was happy, but would have been happy to pay $100 more. Anyhow, when I got to the counter they didn’t have records of my new reservation and charged me double the original cost.
10.0 Excellent12 Jul. 2019
Cons: All was handled efficiently with friendly, helpful service.
9.2 Excellent23 Dec. 2018
Tire issuesPros: Vehicle was great, brand new. Still had the satellite radio.Cons: Rear passenger tire kept leaking air. Had to fill it 4 times over the week, $1.25 each time
7.2 Good1 Sep. 2018
Pros: - Speed of drop-off.Cons: - Where unable to print me a receipt at check-in.
2.0 Mediocre13 May 2018
Never got carPros: I liked the deal that was advertised on Kayak, although it wasn’t honored upon arrival.Cons: I booked the deal ($37 for two days) but when I got to the airport I was told the economy cars were not available. The lady said she’d cut me a “deal” and up charge $20 for a midsize. I didn’t want to pay nearly $60 for such a short period. After politely saying I’d like to see if I can find something cheaper, I went in the kiosk adjacent to her, which was Thrifty. She (rather rudely) told me that they are the same company and won’t be able to give me anything better. One of the Thrufty employees had to correct her and said that was exactly true. I said I didn’t realize that and left irritated and somewhat embarrassed that she said that openly in front of other people. So, I walked down to National. The guy there was very nice and hooked me up with a brand new Ford Fusion hybrid for $42. That was my first interaction with Dollar, and it wasn’t a pleasant one.

Great deal!Pros: I loved driving the Ford Taurus! It was very nice and reminded me of a luxury car with the cream leather interior. The checkout process was very easy and quick! The checkin was even faster! Plus the value was amazing through Kayak.Cons: They don't do a walkthrough with the car. My rental had a damaged console in the middle, stains on the carpet, and a burn mark. I didn't want to be held responsible so I took pictures.
10.0 Excellent18 May 2018
Great valuePros: It was great value for the money and the service was awesome.
4.8 Okay7 Dec. 2017
Cons: Very slow pickup, clerk did not know how to use the computer system and had to ask someone. Drop off was a mess as their computer system was down so the clerk asked me to hang out and wait for a bit. I responded that I had a plane to catch and that they would have to figure it out on their own time, which seems correct.
9.2 Excellent4 May 2017
Value for the dollar.Pros: Liked the cost per day, compared to others.Cons: Got a Prius, used it for 6 days, used one tank of gas and the cost was just over $200.
6.8 Good19 Mar. 2017
Pros: The biggest problem was the smell of the vehicle. It seemed like someone had smoked in the car and then tried to cover it up. Car smelled like a cheap hotel room. Also, there was a strong scent of either perfume or air freshener on the seat belt which then made me smell like that the rest of the day.

Pros: Never like the "up sale" stuff.Cons: The fact that a spouse is not free to drive?! Really in this day and time? Thrifty is on my short list to never use again.
7.2 Good20 Aug. 2020
Pros: The price and the vehicle was great.Cons: At pickup, the vehicle was not ready, and had to wait. The help desk seemed to not want to be working. There was no information given about the return of the vehicle. I had to ask about return from the man working the gate, but even that was not enough. At return, there was no one to close the transaction, Just a sign saying to leave the keys in the car. I had to work with customer service for the next two days to get the extra daily charges removed from my credit card account because no one at the drop off location closed the account. I'll not rent from Thrifty and associated companies again.
9.6 Excellent24 Jun. 2020

3.6 Mediocre13 Feb. 2020
Cons: Staff at pickup was not friendly. I was the only customer there and stood in line waiting for her to get off her cell phone. Texting. Young lady could not answer simple questions during registration. Vehicle was too small for what we needed. Gas mileage was horrible. Called while on the road and nobody picked up the phone. Overpriced for what was given. Will not use this complete again. Will not recommend.

Pros: Staff was okay vehicle wasn’t ready at designated time and still had to be cleaned and wasn’t properly done so. Was also charged for gas and shouldn’t have been they said I was given car with full tank that was false and I have a tuned and dated picture of the gauges so I returned vehicle with same amount as given actually a little more and now fighting to get my money back and upon more investigating this same thing has happen to many people this rental company is not the one I prefer to use I just had no choice on this particular date I will never return

Pros: The value & staff. They worked hard to give us a clean vehicle.Cons: We had a group of high school students we were transporting and the van had the slightest odor of marijuana. We would have returned it, but there no other vans and we really needed the bigger vehicle.
8.0 Excellent1 Jul. 2019
Cons: This location is too small for the volume of business they do. The facility needs to be enlarged and/or updated. That being said; the employees are friendly; you are offered water while you wait and they explain your charges. Overall a huge win if saving money is what you want to do.
8.0 Excellent18 Jun. 2019
Pros: Got a great rate by renting the car several weeks ahead and paid at the time of rental. Car ran great but was a bit smaller than we anticipated but was fine for our needs.Cons: Check in and Drop off were both much longer than I anticipated. Each agent I dealt with were very nice and knew their stuff, but it was just a very slow process to get the car - much slower than I usually have when I rent. The agent really tried to sell the insurance - probably asked us 5 times.
10.0 Excellent15 Jun. 2019
Cons: Hertz needs to notify customers online reservation can not be made through debit card. Or Hertz needs to block the option debit card payment. I had to cancel my reservation and reschedule due to this error and something is not convenient.
10.0 Excellent6 Apr. 2019
Pros: The staff was amazing. So friendly and accommodating. Hassan even drove us back to the airport when we returned the car so we didn't have to take an Uber!Cons: Nothing

2.0 Mediocre26 Oct. 2020
Pros: Desk lady was super patient with me and very friendly.Cons: Car selection, pre-rental inspection, communication. I called 7 times every hour to half hour and never go ahold of anyone at the local office. Was charged for a second day rental, we didn’t even have the car 36 hours. Local office was closed at 4, so I couldn't call and communicate the massive wreck that delayed us before returning on time. When I finally made it to the car return, the dude who took my keys never said anything to indicate I’d get charged another $125. I rent 8-10 cars annually for my business, and figured I’d give budget a chance to see why it’s cheaper. You get what you pay for. Never had an issue with enterprise or hertz.
4.0 Okay16 Oct. 2020
Pros: Car was newerCons: Car smelled bad of marijuana when picked up and wasn’t cleaned at all. Terrible customer service as well
8.0 Excellent2 Oct. 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful and courteous.Cons: Car floor was a bit dirty.
8.4 Excellent9 Aug. 2020
Pros: Very friendly at pick up. No issuesCons: South band drop off was the worst I have ever experienced. All other rentals had a sign leading to the return lot. There was no sign for budget. I had to ride around the airport and went to the Budget Truck Rental, which was the only place with a sign. I was being redirected to the car return lot. There was no pen or pencil to fill out the return. I went inside the terminal, and there was no pen or pencil at the desk to drop off the return card. I had to wait in line to return the car. The biggest Improvement for the drop-off this to have a sign for Budget rental return leading to the lot similar to the other car returns.
7.6 Good21 Jul. 2020
Pros: Easy to get to and everyone there was helpful on getting the vehicle and getting on my wayCons: I had a oil issue when the vehicle was in my driveway, they just had the oil changed and the company had an overflow of oil that went onto my driveway and the rental car company just told me there was nothing that they could do about this. I feel that customer service should have been a little better.

9.2 Excellent14 Nov. 2019
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: There was only one agent available for check in at the Louisville airport so there was quite a wait.
4.8 Okay10 Jun. 2019
Cons: The receipt says i was charged one amount and the amount taken from my bank account was twice as much as was told
2.0 Mediocre7 May 2019
Cons: Sunday after the Kentucky Derby in Louisville there was ONE lady working the counter. She was nice but there was a line. A long line. While in line I made another reservation with Avis online and was on my way before the line moved at Budget.

Pros: Fair price. Helpful staff and they valued my time and got me on my way.Cons: Fresh baked cookies at the counter would have been great.
4.0 Okay12 Jul. 2016
Cons: I waited four hours for a replacement in Newark. I ended up having to pay for a hotel because I got drowsy after waiting for four hours. I called Louisville to advise I was delayed and they still charged me for an extra day. Credit has not come through.
6.0 Good21 Jun. 2016
Pros: The car was clean and a nice vehicle.Cons: The car was not ready for us at the designated time. Then the attendant said they did not have one at all. After several hours she found one at another site. All this caused stress and delayed our vacation by more than 5 hours. Then the price was even higher than originally quoted not a single discount for my inconvenience or their confusion.
9.6 Excellent21 Oct. 2015
Great car - the second one that is - first was dirPros: helpful desk staff and cars right there at the terminalCons: first car was dirty and the one person in the parking lot was on a phone in a running car near us talking loud with a foul mouth. It would be better for Avis if he was cleaning the dirty car they first gave us

When to book a rental car in Louisville

Top tips for renting a car in Louisville

  • Ready to rent a car on your road trip to Louisville? Instead of using public transport, rent a car for an ultimate sense of freedom while exploring this city. There is no better way to see all that Louisville has to offer than by roaming around its charming streets. From the Highlands to the Ohio River to Cherokee Park, the city has plenty of sights to discover by car.
  • If you are flying into Louisville, it’s good to know that there are two airports: Louisville International and Bowman Fields. When you land at Louisville International Airport you will find the car rental counters on-site at the airport’s main Terminal. Once you get into arrivals, the car rental counters are located on the lower level near baggage claim.
  • Drivers new to the state of Kentucky will have to navigate various interstates, county roads, and city streets, along with rural and secondary roads. Louisville has many bicycle lanes to cater for its large bicycling community, so look out for cyclists in the city. During winter, be prepared for heavy snowfall and decrease your speed when driving in tough conditions.
  • Driving on Louisville’s crowded interstates during rush hour, particularly around Spaghetti Junction where three major interstates meet and merge, means you will encounter heavy traffic at some point. You should avoid driving in the morning, from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and during the afternoon between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. On Thursdays you can expect delays during the evening commute on Thursdays, while on Friday mornings the rush hour is much lighter.
