I made my reservation to pick up at PVD and when I arrived, it was changed to a downtown Providence location. Costed me an additional $100 in airport fees, taxes, tourism fees. I will NEVER rent from Hertz again

The car was filthy and smelled terrible. We were driving to our wedding and had to have the wedding dress dry-cleaned before the ceremony because the car smell attached itself to the dress. There was a used, bloody band-aid on the rear floor of the car.

The customer survive was amazing. Very friendly staff with great professional engagement. The only area of improvement was in car presentation. The vehicle was not externally cleaned well. The detail staff left the entice bottom half of the vehicle dirty. You could actually see where they stopped cleaning. Looked very bad.

Cons:

I went to pick up the car and was told that I needed a major credit card. I didn’t have one and they said I would need to leave a deposit (which was fine) and they would run my credit. My credit score wasn’t good enough apparently and that was basically the end of the transaction. Stranded.

Pros:

Staff was slightly apologetic about not having my requested vehicle.

Cons:

I showed up on the day of pickup, and they didn't have my car?! All they had was mini-vans, when I had reserved a compact/mid-size. I ended up having to get a last minute rental from another company.

Cons:

I returned the car one full day earlier than expected and I was still charged for the full three days (even though I had only had the car rented for two). I was told I'd get a call about my refund and, to date, haven't heard from Avis -- despite calling them countless times. Never again.

Honored rental price/cost from Kayak.....got me in Auto that was satisfactory.

Cons:

4.0 Okay

Aug. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car itself was fine, although the back seat needed cleaning. And it was ready at the arranged time.

Cons:

The agency did not provide any kind of map, and this was the first time I've experienced that in many years with many car rentals from other companies. The local person was not familiar with local roads to help me get started on the trip. He was not as helpful or polite as I'd expect. Another issue is that I was headed to Massachusetts and planned to take the toll road, and the agent in Rhode Island did not know - or at least did not tell me - of the major change in toll collection there. Since it is not possible to pay cash on I 90, I will be receiving a bill for those tolls, plus additions from Avis and possibly fines. When I dropped the car off in Chicago, the office desk had handouts explaining their e-toll fees. But nothing of the sort was offered in RI where it would have actually helped. I will not rent from Avis again, or Budget, which seems to have merged with it.

Top tips for renting a car in Providence

  • Discover the cool city of Providence with Brown University and many more places of interest. Get the most out of your visit by renting a car upon your arrival and explore every nook and cranny this city has to offer. For a pleasant day trip, try venturing down to the coast, which will take about 2 hours of driving, and then take a ferry to the popular island of Martha’s Vineyard. Boston is also only 1 hour away via the I-93 S and I-94 S, and Cape Cod can be reached in just over an hour.
  • Green Airport is about 10 miles from Providence’s center and has a car rental center right there. Simply follow signs to the rental car service desks and pick up the car of your taste. Various agencies are stationed here including Alamo, Avis, and Hertz, and the way out of the airport is sign-posted. The I-95 N will take travelers directly into the city in just over 10 minutes.
  • Rhode Island has introduced a “hands-free” driving law and speaking on the phone while driving is strictly prohibited and can be severely fined. When needing to operate a GPS, rent one along with the car and make sure it has a mount. Always plan routes in advance or let other car passengers deal with the navigation system while you are driving.
  • Driving in snowy conditions is part of the Southern New England experience during the winter months. Usually, when properly equipped and prepared, driving in winter should be no problem -- but make sure the rental car has snow tires and consider renting snow chains if you plan to venture out of the urban areas. Having an emergency kit with a blanket, flashlight, water, and snacks in the car also does not hurt.

  • Book your rental car in Providence at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
