KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Westerville

  • Having a Westerville car rental has many benefits over traveling with public transport. You can explore Westerville at your own pace, as you are not tied to routes or schedules as with public transport. You can go off the beaten path or make impromptu stops at attractions. Rental cars offer comfort; they have air conditioning, heating, and entertainment systems. Traveling with children is easier as transfers are not involved. Moreover, a rental saves your vacation time as you don't have to wait for buses or trains to arrive. Be sure to include Inniswood Metro Gardens and Good Vibes Winery in your travel itinerary.
  • When going to Westerville, you will fly into John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH). The car rental kiosks are in the Main Terminal building in the Arrivals Area. Once you have signed the rental agreement and been given the keys to your rental car, you will proceed to the multi-story parking facility attached to the terminal building. Your car will be parked on the ground floor. Only drivers over 21 will be given access to rental cars, and you must have your passport, valid driver's license, and major credit card.
  • Before getting behind the wheel of a car rental in Westerville, it would be comforting to know what to expect from the city's drivers. Drivers in Westerville are usually polite to other motorists. However, during traffic jams, you may encounter aggressive drivers. Ensure that you are on the lookout and drive conservatively. You should also watch for distracted drivers and passengers crossing the road in unmarked areas. Be sure to follow Westerville's driving laws for a smooth rental experience.
  • Westerville traffic jams usually get intense on weekdays, especially when locals are commuting to and from work or school. Some roads and streets that are notorious for traffic snarl-ups include Olentangy River Road, Schrock Road, South State Street, and State Route 315. Plan your trips to avoid the peak rush hours, which occur between 7 am and 9 am, and 4 pm and 6 pm. Staying up to date with traffic advisories will inform you about congested roads.
  • Book your rental car in Westerville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Premium rental cars in Westerville are around 15% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

My reservation time was 3pm for a mini van. I did not get my SUV until 5:30pm. Apparently reservation means nothing to Avis I not only got the wrong kind of vehicle I got it 2 1/2 hrs late! As for Kayak the contract was not very clear on the LIMITED millage and apparently do not really partner with Avis on the insurance, which is also not clear when booking!

Huge lines at the counter. The car was rented to me dirty and without a full tank of gas. When I called customer service I was put on hold and ultimately hung up on. I gave the car back and am still fighting the charges. Awful experience.

Was in and out pretty quickly, but received a car that wasn’t clean. Was sticky in places and items from last rental (trash) was still in interior and under seats. Got car with 5/8 tank of gas. If I had more time before departure, I would have requested a clean car. Faint smells of marijuana inside as well.
