KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Virginia Beach

  • With cheap car rentals in Virginia Beach, it’s easy for you to explore different parts of the city while also discovering some of the other towns that are in the larger region. For example, you can use your rental vehicle to drive to Norfolk, which is approximately 20 to 25min away. You can also go to Chesapeake, which is around 30min from Virginia Beach, or Portsmouth, which can also be reached by car in approximately half an hour.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Virginia Beach, it's important to remember that you might encounter a toll road or two. There are quite a few toll roads that lead in and out of the city, including the I-64 Express, the I-66 Inside Beltway, and the Powhite Parkway. Each of these three toll roads will cost you approximately $1.50, but the fares for other roads may vary.
  • The area has quite a few annual events that take place, which may make it difficult for you to drive Virginia Beach car rentals in the city center. There is the Neptune Wine Festival, which usually takes place over several days in September, as well as the North American Sand Soccer Tournament, which occurs each year in June.
  • Ditch the crowded public transportation and jump into a rental car, which is the most comfortable way to explore both Virginia Beach and its surrounding areas. A car will allow you to freely explore the coastal area and some of the city's best parks, such as First Landing State Park and Neptune's Park. Drive your rental car to nearby Norfolk to see the USS Wisconsin, plus the city of Richmond is only 45 minutes away.
  • All the major car rental companies can be found at Norfolk International Airport (ORF), which is approximately 30 minutes away from Virginia Beach. The car rental desks are located in the Arrivals Hall, which is on the Level 1 of the terminal. Many counters operate from early in the day (4:30 a.m.) until late at night (1 a.m.). Vehicle pickup is on Level G, and rental car return is on Level 2.
  • Virginia Beach is pretty straightforward to navigate, and the best time to visit (weather-wise) is from June to August. That's also peak season, however, so be prepared to find lots of tourists and generally more people on the roads. Two-way traffic must also keep to its side of the road, as a general rule. Drinking driving laws are strict, with the maximum blood alcohol limit being 0.08.
  • Morning rush hour usually takes place between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., and evening rush hour happens between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The evening peak hour may start slightly earlier around the shipyard and naval base as workers get off around 3:30 p.m. The Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel (HRBT) connects the Virginia Beach area to the north side of Hampton Roads, which is where most traffic jams happen, so plan your trip accordingly.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Virginia Beach for C$ 63 or less
  • Book your rental car in Virginia Beach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Virginia Beach are around 302% more expensive than other car types, on average

Nothing at all. Unacceptable and unprofessional.

Cons:

We received a confirmation with location to pick up the car. When we arrived the rep stated that they didnt have the reservation and the site we booked it through was not legitimate. My husband showed her the information amd she stated it was not a reservation. They ended up sending us to another enterprise and made us pay 140.00 more. We had no choice as we were traveling with children for a youth tournament and needed transportation. Unacceptable.

Pickup/dropoff was not where scheduled when paid for. Was called day before with location changed. Back off vehicle had flat tire and an interior panel laying in it, no washer fluid. Slde sliding door did not work properly. Had to be opened from inside most of the trip. Was told I could take it to airport to exchange no offer to get me another delivered. When complaint was filed before I left for trip was told I would get a partial refund. Have not seen it. Budget apparently really means budget customer care. Would never use them again!!!!

Reservation was easy to make online. I did make it last minute as my car had to go into the shop and I needed a replacement vehicle. Everything was fine until I went out to my Volkswagen Jetta. I open the door and the smell of cigarette smoke greeted me. I went back in and attendant asked what he could help me with. I told him the car smell like smoke, and I could not be in a car like that because it gave me a headache and it made me nauseous. He said no it’s not smoke. That’s what we used to clean the cars with.???????? I said no I can actually smell the nicotine not just the smoke, but the actual nicotine. I am 56 years old. I know what cigarette smoke smells like. There was a woman attendant who had been helping renters, but was due to get off work at 4 o’clock. She went out with me, opened the door put her head in and said this is not smoke and sprayed some deodorizer for less than a second. Without another word, she turned around and walked away. She got in her car and left. There were other cars on the lot, but they would not give me another car because they were in a different class. (NOT luxury cars)The manager told me that I could have rental voided out and go someplace else. This is their response when one of their vehicle smells like smoke?? I had no choice. I had to have a car. I took it for that day and then I returned it early. I will never rent from you guys again your customer service was the worst I have ever experienced. And every time I was in the car for more than a few minutes I got a headache and was nauseous. I had five other people, my kids, a neighbor and a friend stick their head inside the car and tell me what they smelled. 100% of them said smoke. Do not rent from here go someplace else and pay a few dollars more. Well worth the extra money. For the insolence and the non-customer service, both attendants should be fired. I have rented another car from Enterprise. WOW what a difference

The 3500 Virginia Beach Blvd Hertz Rental car is the worst rental car business I have ever encountered in 30 years of driving. The location is difficult to find, it has no signs inside our outside. Inside the office is dirty, water stains, lights missing, gear and random equipment stored haphazardly for customers to stare at, umbrellas and light fixtures on the floor. The system and pathway to see an attendant is designed poorly. 3 employees sat behind a small desk hidden in a separate room. One employee sat on a make shift seat. Counters we’re dirty. That’s just the physical aspects of the facility. Customer Service - non existent. The young lady attended to my rental informed me that I was too early to pick up my 10 AM reservation, at 9:41. I asked if there were other cars, she said yes - but my car wasn’t ready yet. What process are they using here? At 9:49 I was told it was okay to get a car. Zero sense After signing at the desk, I was again asked to sign documents while at the car. - that the employee stated was for the pet and smoking policy. I was rushed to sign the document in a very rude and aggressive interaction. I instructed her I was reading it, at which point I noticed the document was the pre departure photos, with an option declaring I had declined to have them sent to my email. She was rude, terse, and acted counter to Hertz Customer Service policies. I asked for it to be sent to me, and provided my email. Ironically, I never received the email. I don’t care about the dirty facility. I can handle a rude employee - but don’t lie or express incompetence to me about legally binding documents and then try to force me to sign them without reading. That’s not how this works. If I were the owner Of this facility; A) Find a new location, B) Take a week off and go through some pretty serious customer service training. Not going back. Telling all of my friends not to go back. Telling my insurance company to not do business with them. Telling the Auto Body company not to do business with them.

I thought I was renting a full size car. My pick up time was Friday at 6pm, but they close at 6pm so not sure why they would allow me to schedule that time. I called them Friday May 5 around 3 or 3:30pm to see if I could come early and was told that they did not have a full size car at that time. I arrived around 530-545pm. They still didn't have a full size car, the gentleman took me outside to a 2016 Nissan Rogue, he told me it was an upgrade. I was disappointed because I was traveling and really wanted a trunk. I currently own a 2015 Nissan Rogue and the one I rented didn't have half the stuff my 2015 has. This was a base model all the way around no upgrades. I was supposed to return the car Sunday May 14, but I was so dissatisfied, I took it back Saturday morning, May 13 at 9am, when they were supposed to open. Well myself and another gentleman waited outside for about 15 minutes when the lady finally arrived. She walked right by us and did not say a word. She never spoke or greeted us never apologized for her tardiness. Once we were inside she asked what we were here for we replied drop off. She took the keys went and looked at the cars came back and gave us a receipt. This was my first rental with HERTZ, I normally use Enterprise but decided to give HERTZ a try. NEVER AGAIN, ENTERPRISE HERE I COME!!!

There were unexpected fees, and things not explained. I went to pick up the car but wasn’t allowed to use my debit card- I have no credit card and there were no other options or help offered. Luckily one of my passengers had a credit card. The toll system wasn’t explained and the fee for toll charges is outrageous. The rep at pickup was nice, but not hugely helpful. The rep at drop off was very good.

It was terrible, the customer service was poor. Our car broke down and they wouldn’t compensate us with a new one. Our reservation got screwed up so they said we had to rent a whole new car instead of just doing a vehicle exchange. Me receipt said jan 13 - jan 17 but for some reason the customer service reps kept saying that the vehicle was due on jan 14 and although I showed them my receipt with the proper information, they made us pay for a new car. And on top of that, they were rude as can be. This was the worst car rental experience of my life. I’m never using Avis again.
