Top tips for renting a car at Akron/Canton airport

  • While Akron/Canton Airport provides arriving travelers with both public and private transportation options to both Akron and Canton, rental cars are the best alternatives, especially for those looking to explore all the sites in both cities conveniently. Since the public buses either go to Akron or Canton, driving yourself will give you the flexibility to travel to both cities. Taxis are convenient but are relatively less economical options for those who want to explore multiple destinations in and around each city. After a long flight, you also get to travel directly to your destination without having to worry about connecting with other transportation means and bulky luggage.
  • On average, it takes less than 10min for travelers to get their rental car, although this may vary depending on the arrival time. Fortunately, travelers do not need to travel far to get to the rental counters since they are all situated within the terminal. Travelers will be able to spot the counters from the baggage claim carousel. You also do not need to worry about bringing the car back later than the agreed-upon time since some rental agencies allow after-hours returns.
  • Ensure you make a mental note of the exact pick-up location of whichever car rental at Akron/Canton Airport you rent since the return location is in the same area. To make finding the return area less challenging, the airport has marked signs overhead leading to the return lot location from the entrance to the airport. Those returning vehicles after office hours should leave the keys and the rental contract at the rental desk, where they will find a dropbox.
  • An ideal time to pick up a car rental at Akron/Canton Airport is during off-peak hours at around noon. Travelers are more likely to have a wide variety of vehicles during this time since passenger traffic is less. It will also take a relatively shorter time to pick up a pre-booked car at mid-day than the morning or evening hours. Travelers can save on pick-up time by booking a rental before arriving at the bustling airport. You are likely to get stuck in slow-moving traffic if you bring back a rental anywhere between 3 pm and 6 pm when the roads leading to the airport, especially Interstate 77, are congested.
  • Book your rental car at Akron/Canton airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Akron/Canton airport

On the other hand, Hertz has a loyalty program that offers travelers certain perks, like the convenient option of not waiting in line at the rental desk.

  • What kind of amenities are at the Akron/Canton Airport rental car center?

    Fortunately, all CAK’s car rental desks for all agencies, including Budget, Avis, Alamo, Hertz, and Enterprise, are within the terminal.

  • What kind of documentation is required to rent a car at Akron/Canton Airport?

    To qualify to rent any vehicle from a car rental at Akron/Canton Airport, renters must possess a valid driving license issued by the U.S. government.

Pros:

When I arrived for pick-up, there was a little delay, which is understandable considering there was only one cleaner doing all the cars due to the outbreak. The staff communicated with me throughout the wait to assure me they didn’t forget about me. Afterwards, they gave me a free upgrade to a JAGUAR!!! Will definitely go back to Alamo @ CAK.

Cons:

Hire more staff (if it’s possible in today’s climate)

Cons:

I purchased the third party insurance for the car, and Alamo advised me that it is worthless. That policy doesn’t cover the car, and they would have to go through my car insurance if something happened. If I had just paid Alamo directly, it would have been covered bumper to bumper . Scam.

Drop-off and pickup in Parkersburg, WV and Canton, OH were both quick and easy; neither Chicago (O'Hare and West Loop) experience was positive: slow and unfriendly at O'Hare, and unexpectedly closed office with confusing drop-off at West Loop.

Pros:

Drop-off was way better than pickup. He listened and was knowledgeable and professional, even though he was training a new employee. And super fast.

Cons:

There was a clean sticker on the door jam and the inside looked cleaned but doubt it was sanitized (due to other behavior). The windows had a lot of spray water spots (not dried after car wash) so visibility was hampered by car lights and sunshine. Had to stop and clean them. The rental agent wanted to charge extra for listing spouse, which we questioned, and then she said oh maybe we don't. There could be more transparency on fees, insurance, charges, customer service and information. Seems shady and like trying to pad the bill tactics. Just have clear and trustworthy info spelled out. Tire tread was very low and we had rain during most of the drive. Concerning. Reserved an intermediate car and could not see anything on the display screen like Auto Android or Google maps or Waze. This is 2020! Sheesh. And we could not get a simple answer on insurance, or the benefits or things to consider or why to choose your insurance. Very strange like we should not get Hertz ins. We will not rent from Hertz again. And it was $6+ more than the online reservation amount and no reason given when we asked.

The convineince of the rental place being right by the baggage claim and the ease of dropping off the rental.

Cons:

The customer service was horrible, and I got a better deal by going on kayak.com right in front of the counter and booking a car through them. Then, I was told the insurance I purchased through kayak “didn’t work”. No other explanation. Then I was charged 200 dollars extra that I was told I would get back after I returned the car. I have never seen this, and why is a credit check needed to rent a car?

Pros:

The staff, Toni, could not have been better. She was approved to stay about an hour and a half after they closed to to be sure that we received our car as Dollar closed at 5pm and our plane didn't land until 6:15pm. Worse, I rented a separate car for my wife, Kayak withdrew the $155.00 rental fee, and I never received a confirmation or rental information for her car that I knew of. I called Dollar and they couldn't find the reservation either so I was out $155.00 (and actually more because it cost me more to rent a new car then the original. Really irritating. I've had they issue in the past as well but it was such a hassle to try and get reimbursement that I gave it up. Again, Toni at Dollar deserves accolades beyond imagination. She is a lovely person dedicated to customer service. Thank you Toni.

Cons:

Frustrating I was charged the $155.00 without a car. Sadly, most car rental services that are discount companies like Dollar perform the same way. Similar with Alamo. Avis was great but then you pay more. In the end, it may be worth it.

Pros:

Everything was super easy and the staff were very friendly!

Cons:

I don't think Thrifty could have done anything better other than let me know that there were no gas stations near the airport. It's not their fault that there aren't any nearby but it wasn't something I thought of because normally there are gas stations near the airports I fly in and out of. It was too close to my flight time for me to drive the extra 12 minutes back out of the airport to find a gas station, fill up, and then drive 12 minutes back. Again, I should have thought of it before, but if they would have informed me ahead of time it would have been less of an annoyance.

Cons:

The car had an overwhelming smell, as if the interior was just scrubbed, which is odd given that the car only had 1100 miles on it. Returning the car not as convenient as pick up...have to drop-off the car to an attendant further from the counter and walk to the counter to complete drop-off. This was necessary even though rental was pre-paid and the rental duration was just as contracted.
