Pick up took 50 minutes. I was told that someone had called in sick so the only lady there had to go clean each car before it could get rented. Then the manager came in and explained the car cleaner had hand surgery and was out for weeks (so the lack of car cleaner was entirely foreseeable.) They also told me they didn't have my reservation despite me having a kayak confirmation email with a Hertz confirmation number. It very easily could have been a lot better customer service.

Cons:

Our flight in Chicago cancelled. We were unable to change the pick up location from Peoria to Chicago We were stranded in Chicago at night. We had to get another car from Chicago to Peoria and then the next day go get our Kayak rental in Peoria. We paid for a day we did not use. The other problem was booking through Kayak there was no opportunity to cancel. We will never book another car through Kayak.

Pros:

I picked up the SUV at the airport and they required me to sign the sheet that has the checklist for any damage to the vehicle? This is before I even see the vehicle that is parked a few hundred yards from the building? They need to have a person drive it up to the building and go over it before driving away! Once i got it to the peoples house I was picking up, I opened the back gate and noticed some previous damage from another rental?? NOW WHAT AM I TO DO ?? How do I prove I did not do it since I have the vehicle in my posession? A real bummer! I did buy the insurance, which by the way, is way too expensive..if they charge it to that insurance it will be fraud ?? Also the vehicle was very dirty and water spotted on the exterior which in turn makes it difficult to see any damage before driving out of the lot!!

Aug. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

I had a Focus and unbeknownst to me it was a hybrid model. This made for great mileage and saved on the gas expense. Despite being overpriced in my opinion, it was the lowest price that Kayak had available.

Cons:

The entire infotainment system regularly shut off for the entire trip. While I had declined the Sirius and Navigation, it still made me unable to listen to the radio or CDs. The worker when I picked up the car was pretty condescending in her efforts to try and get me to spend more money. I had a one-way trip of about 600 miles, and I felt like the charge was pretty high for just a 24 hour rental.

Pros:

Cons:

Customer service is awful. My husband had to fly to Peoria for a funeral at the last minute we had a car reserved. The computers at Budget Rental were not working and instead of working with him, they refused to rent him a car even though they had our credit card on file and he had the credit card in his possession they refused renting a car . he even offered them cash. He had to call a family member in the middle of the night because his flight got in late, to have that family member come and pick him up. I tried to talk to the woman on the phone to give her another credit card because they said they needed to charge more money than what the car actually was on to our account to pre-approve it. She was rude and unhelpful. Worst experience I've ever had with getting a car and my husband ended up having to rely on his family to get around town because he did not end up renting the car... we gave up. We didn't have a choice really ; when I tried to call customer service to complain or to solve the problem, they said their computers were down and they could not help me, that I needed to call back later. At that point it was way too late. We will never ever ever ever used Budget Cars again. Basically, because they could not process our credit card because of their own problems with computers, my husband was left without transportation in a time of family crises. I can't even express my disgust in budget car rental and also delta airlines, who also was having computer problems and still has our credit card tied up with pending charges for tickets we never purchased. Also, who could not fix it. I remember when companies used to bend over backwards to be helpful when a family member passed away.

Very frustrating to arrive at the counter to pick up my vehicle and find that they have no reservation for me. This is KAYAK’s fault snd not Enterprise. When I booked, it was for at the Peoria Airport. But after not finding my reservation, they looked closer at my itinerary and found that my car was at the downtown location. By this time, that location was closed. They treated me kindly at the airport and I received an upgrade - but because of renting there, I had to pay additional because of airport taxes. Enterprise was GREAT but KAYAK certainly messed up the reservation! No wonder they had the better price - reserving somewhere other than where I needed it! Shame on KAYAK!!!

The employee at the airport pickup in Peoria on Friday February 18th at 2:00pm was not helpful at all!!!! However, the rest of my experience was excellent. The workers at Pioneer Road Enterprise were great!! Special shout out to Christopher for calling to check up on how I was doing on Saturday. Noah from the Macomb Enterprise was a God send!!!. He came to a parking lot to help get me car started!!! Thank you Noah!!!! I wish I could have exchanged cars in Macomb for the weekend, but that office is closed Saturday and Sunday. The drop off at the airport was great on Monday at 1:00pm. The woman handling my return was so very helpful!!!

Top tips for renting a car in Peoria

  • If you have been looking forward to your trip to Peoria and want to experience the city with ultimate convenience, flexibility, and fewer restrictions, then you may need to consider renting a car. There are many car rentals in Peoria that are willing to offer you any car of your choice that will make your trip, not just comfortable but a lot more fun, whether you are going on business or vacation. One of the top reasons to rent a car in Peoria is having the ability to travel as close to or as far from the city as you please without having to worry about adhering to a given schedule. Imagine being able to hit the road and going to Lincoln House 72 miles away in about an hour or dropping at the Miller Park Zoo about 42 miles away in under an hour. Total flexibility.
  • The Downing Peoria International Airport houses a dedicated rental car area where you'll pick up your car of choice from agencies like Hertz, Dollar, Alamo, and Avis. The Rental Car Counter is directly in the baggage claim area, and the cars are usually parked outside the baggage claim. There are big signs for "Arrivals" and "Baggage Claim" that will lead you to the entrance where you'll find the counter for your rental car agency of choice. This is also where you'll return the car once the trip is over.
  • Jaywalking is rampant in Peoria, so you’ll want to drive safely to avoid getting into an accident in a new city. During the summer season, extreme heat may also cause the roads to bulge and buckle, causing hazards in the process. Traffic has previously been reported in Peoria along with War Memorial, Route 6 southbound and northbound, as well as the 1-474, so be on the lookout. Winters in Peoria experience ice and snow, and the roads can be quite slippery, so having the right type of car can go a long way.
  • Morning rush hour in Peoria starts at 9am and dies down to regular traffic at 10am. The reopening of the Murray Baker Bridge has significantly lowered the traffic congestion in Peoria. To maintain the traffic on the 1-74, the county installed traffic lights that operate between 2:30pm and 6:30 pm, at which time the evening traffic is at its peak.
  • Book your rental car in Peoria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Peoria are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average
