The car was about 1/8 below a full tank. And then the car showed that one of the rear tires was very low which I didn’t notice until I was off the lot but it made me a bit nervous while on the highway.

Nissan QuestIt was roomy and had XM Radio included. The seats initially seemed uncomfortable but I put 800 miles on it and no back pain. Gas milage was about 23 highway. Way worse in the city.I would have preferred a Chrysler Pacifica but I guess those are considered premium. The windscreen cracked...IDK what that's going to cost :(

What is with Nissan vehicles?Typical easy Hertz experience.I've rented three Nissans in the past few months, 2x from Hertz and once from Dollar. What is with the transport shipping tape adhesive goo left on the doors??? All three cars! It certainly doesn't affect usage of the vehicle, but it looks bad. Somebody, take some WD40 out there, soak the adhesive, and clean it off!

Drop off easy and they ordered a taxi for usI am very unhappy with the insurance I booked on the website as I assumed I would be covered for emergency breakdown but Avis would not accept the emergency breakdown so had to pay again for that. I also already had other travel insurance so just wasted money The policy is misleading

It was great, there wasn't a line i was in and out. The gentleman upgraded me at no extra cost, some the best customer service I've had in a while
10.0 Excellent2019 Nov 25
the older woman was helpful and i was pleasantly surprised to get a bigger car even though i had requested a kia or similar. since all she had on the lot was an Equinox i got that at the price i had planned to pay. Thank younothing. very happy with the service

Fast and efficient service. Friendly staff. Excellent choice and condition of vehicles. The pick up location had a choice of vehicles we could take and when we indicated we have lots of luggage, the staff correctly suggested the Ford Explorer. Kudos to the staff.Perhaps there could be a small map with arrows indicating the exact drop-off location. Sometimes Google maps will not bring you to the exact location but somewhere there and in a city like Chicago, you have to figure out the exact spot by going around in circles

No one told us that 21 cannot rent a minivan. We wasted our time to rent this car. And i didn’t find how to cancel to reservation after the lady at the drop off location told us we can’t rent.

Great staff, easy to find.Instructions for after-hours key drop-off should be better.

1.9 Horrible2021 Oct 03
There was no car on the lot for my reservation. They were unable to help me locate a car at another location or with a competitor. I was just on my own to figure it out at the last minute. Reservations should not be allowed to be made or confirmed if they are unable to fulfill them.
1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 25
The first the Budget rep assigned to me at check-in was a sedan that smelled likecigarette smoke, was beat up looking, and had a warning light up about needing an oil change. The second car the Budget rep assigned to me was an old looking Toyota 4Runner that a worn out break pedal that you had to press down all the way to get it to function, a driver's side passenger door that did not open from the inside of car, and a rear hatchback door that sometimes opened from the outside and sometimes stayed locked no matter how many time you hit unlock on the remote. To add insult to injury, Budget charged about 30-40% more at the Champaign, Illinois location than they charge elsewhere in the U.S. Needless to say, I did foresee that I was going to be visiting rent-a-wreck after paying top dollar to Budget.

NO MORE CARS!There were no cars left - I took a taxi to get to a location with no cars and then had to pay for a taxi to go to another car rental location where I just made it before they closed.

Great value for moneyThe price, the ease of pick up and drop off, the efficiency and value of the whole thing.The brakes on the Kia rental were so tight, they nearly threw me through the windshield each time i used them, til i got used to them

Top tips for renting a car at Champaign University-Willard Airport

  • A great feature of traveling to a smaller airport such as this is that the customer service counters and the rental cars available for rent are all on-site and easy to access. To find the customer service counters for the rental car companies that operate at this airport, you can proceed right from the baggage claim area to their location inside the terminal building. Once you have picked up your contract and your keys, you will find your car rental at Champaign University-Willard Airport (CMI) just outside the exit for baggage claim in the adjacent parking lots.
  • Returning a car rental at Champaign University-Willard Airport is as easy as renting the car in the first place. As you approach the airport on Highway 45 there will be ample signage showing you where the airport complex is. Once you are there, head to the same parking lot where you picked up your rental car and then park the car, note your mileage and gas level, lock the car, and then drop your contract and your keys in the provided lock box for your rental car provider.
  • Even though this is a smaller airport serving a relatively small town, there are still a couple of transportation options to get you from the airport to the center of the city. This includes public bus service as well as taxi service from the airport. The problem with the public bus is that it's not set up for a large group of travelers that may be carrying a lot of luggage. A taxi is a good option unless you need to make several trips during your stay, at which point the cost is going to get exorbitant. When you take all that into account, you will see that a car rental at Champaign University-Willard Airport is a great choice for transportation.
  • Because this is a smaller airport, the airport is generally not overly busy, making getting a Champaign University-Willard Airport car rental an easy procedure. That said, you will find busier times during the morning and evening rush-hour periods, especially on a Friday afternoon when people may be traveling into the city for a weekend. That makes the idea of making a reservation with one of the on-site rental car companies a great idea, so you know that there will be a car waiting for you upon your arrival at this airport.
  • Book your rental car at Champaign University-Willard Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
