The staff I came in contact with was extremely nice and helpful in both places. The car make and model waa great and it ran well.There was an empty cigarette box in the console that I didn't notice until after we departed, and there was no window washer fluid.

The staff in Chattanooga was terrific and helpful. Also liked the car we received. Extremely clean.Dropping off the car in Miami was difficult. The office was hard to find. And then there wasn't sufficient signage to tell us where to stop the car. Had to go inside to get info. There was a large crowd waiting at the counter, and an extra large crowd waiting for free shuttle to the cruise port. Then the driver of the van manhandled my husband's scooter to put it in the van.

The car could have been in better shape. The backup camera was held in by tape and the windows hadn't been cleaned well (they were very hard to see out of). Otherwise, the car performed well and the experience was good.

Won’t ever ask for the managers special again . Didn’t in my wildest dreams think I’d get a Chevy Silverado . Pay the extra and get a car .

Front camera sensor was dirty, so no radar ready cruise control, or lane something alert (car jumping into lane in front of me) and some other safety function. Didn't start notifications until I hit the freeway, was on deadline, couldn't return car, had to stop and look up the warning light that kept popping up and beeping, discovered it was a nonessential problem, had to endure whole trip (16 hours) with light constantly going off and beeping. An older car 60,000 miles. That said, brakes and acceleration were excellent, and seat was comfortable. But I figure no way the previous driver didn't notice the warning light constantly going off, and tell the maintenance staff. Perhaps that's not a good assumption, but I feel the car should have been better maintained.

Service at pickup was excellent. Representatives had good energy and were very polite and helpful. Which made my experience much better. I was having a "not so good" day and they made it so much better! Thank you.

Hertz location closed early on our pick up day without notifying us. We were stuck without a vehicle overnight and missed part of our planned trip. Definitely would not recommend.
1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 14
Our flight was delayed, and when we got to the airport Hertz was closed. Other rental companies were opened, so we got another car. What car rental company closes at 8:00 p.m. at an International Airport?

We were never able to get our vehicle. The rental counter closed at 8pm and our flight got in at 8:42pm. There was no night pick up, no notification that there would not be anyone at the counter. They didn’t leave the information with any of the other agencies who were all open. We ended up having to get a rental car from another agency. We were fortunate that someone from Dollar was able to help us but we had to pay for 2 cars and then I had to spend the next morning of my vacation contacting Hertz to try to get a refund. Absolute nightmare! If you have a rental coming in that day, you should probably have your rental counter staffed! So disappointed!

When we arrived to pick up our reserved car, they had no cars available. We had to rent one for the "walk up rate" at another counter and paid twice as much. Thankfully the other company had a car for us because it was 9pm and we needed to get to our hotel in a town 1.5 hours away.

Never made it to my carNot applicable. I flew into Chattanooga Airport to find that the rental was off- lot, which was fine. I was told that there was a shuttle that Dollar provided for customers. I waited for a little bit, as I was told that it came around. After 20 minutes, I began to call the rental. I tried calling for 25 minutes and NO ONE answered the phone. It was getting late and I ended up having to use a different company. I ended up getting charged way more. I am extremely disappointed with Dollar and the inconvenience caused. I can no longer recommend or use.ot applicable. I flew into Chattanooga Airport to find that the rental was off- lot, which was fine.

Kayak quoted me $23, ended up paying over $60 at Dollar. I reserved an economy car as I was wanting something good on gas and was given a Jeep SUV. Not at all what I was expecting! Should have gone to Enterprise!

Will not rent from Dollar.Did not rent.When we arrived at Dollar they informed us of several new charges... a charge for using a debit card, which was a Visa card and considered a major credit card. Most companies just hold a deposit on your card - they wanted to charge us additional fees per day. Also, they wanted to charge us additional fees for traveling to Indiana.. we had a reservation with unlimited miles and did not know about extra charges to additional states. So what was supposed to be a $38 rental turned into $99 in a matter of minutes. They also had to speak personally to our insurance agent (never had to do this before). We ended up not renting the car and driving our own vehicle which cost us 2 hours of driving time going back and forth to the rental company. I think the change was due to high demand on rentals for that weekend with several festivals going on in the area - they could get more for the vehicle with other rentals. Will not book rental cars through Dollar again.

The Dollar Rent A Car is located offsite at the airport. They are the only company, or so it appeared, that was like this. The other companies have their rental windows right next to baggage claim and the rental cars not too far outside the door. Walking around, it was confusing and not easy to understand where you were suppose to connect. The signage telling you to call them for a shuttle blends in with other airport advertising. Once you call for a shuttle you have to wait outside for 10 minutes and wait for the shuttle, take the 5 minute drive to the car rental place. I arrived at 11 :15 p.m. Their lot was dark and it didn't feel real safe. The car was OK. It was clean and it ran, but the overall hassle of not being at the airport would have made me pay a little extra for convenience.

Was told they didnt have a full size car and was upgrading to a SUV. Then they tried to convince me me to buy their gas package because it would save me money. The whole the sales rep was on the phone talking to a friend. I wnet to the numbered spot and couldnt find a SUV, wqalked around fr a few minutes then used the car alarm to find the car - a toyota camry-CLEARLY NOT AN SUV!

Car rental locations at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport

Top tips for renting a car at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport

  • There’s always an added benefit of renting a vehicle online before you reach the rental branch. That is why KAYAK offers you an opportunity to book a car rental at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport ahead of time to improve your travel plans. Online reservation is a step towards obtaining a vehicle at a competitive rate. So, book as early as you can, preferably one or two weeks before heading to Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport (CHA). The overall rental cost might also include extras like baby seats and a GPS. See the breakdown of the rental price in the payment section of the rental agreement.
  • As you walk into the rental counters at Chattanooga Airport, ensure that your e-voucher is intact and your driver’s license is valid. The minimum age for driving in Chattanooga is 16, but car rental companies at CHA Airport require drivers to be at least 21 years. Each rental agency has different requirements how long renters should have had their driver’s license. If your license is issued outside of the US, you will be asked to show an international driving permit at the counter. Also, carry a valid photo ID—a passport or an identification card that is internationally recognized.
  • The kind of activities you want to enjoy should determine the choice of car rental at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport. The SUV is a favorite among car renters heading to the countryside or mountainous trails. Your family and friends could use a van for added room when traveling to forested parks. Or cruise around the city in a sedan to save money on fuel. Remember to choose a vehicle category based on your pocket. When on a tight budget, opt for compact or economy class as they are the most affordable. Another tip that can save you money is choosing full-to-full fuel usage.
  • Returning your vehicle should be an easy and convenient process as the car rental traffic is very minimal. Plus, there is no disruption by public buses because they use a separate parking lot. The parking garage for a rental car at Chattanooga Airport is on the ground level of the Airport Road. The only thing perhaps you should avoid is the rush hour traffic, so plan your pick-up and drop-off wisely. On a typical day, traffic jams around CHA Airport start from 6 am, and ease up around 10 am. This is mostly the same from 4.30 pm – 6 pm.
  • Book your rental car at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
