I liked the roominess of the vehicle. The ability to connect my Android device to the HUD via bluetooth or USB was very helpful.I don't love the RAV4's Ecoboost(?) feature. It felt like the car stalled at every stoplight, and the gas pedal wasn't very responsive then would jump after pressing hard.

The poetry garage drop of could be better signed. Should tell you to grab a ticket and you won't be charged. It was too confusing.

Rented car through kayak and had a check box for insurance. But turned out that the insurance was not through the car rental co. Not some 3rd partyI will be careful now and add the Insurace At the company site. Don’t fall for this.

The staff was very helpful and friendly at pick up and return. The car was very clean and, because the staff had recommended a slightly larger car due to the bad weather, safe.I have nothing negative to say.

Everyone was friendly and helpful, they upgraded us to an suv free of charge since they didn’t have our reserved car which worked out well for the long drive in adverse weather conditions. Overall very happy experience!

The hertz in Appleton is closed and we didn’t find out until the day before our travel

Hertz location was permanently closed when I arrived for pickup! Received no communication from Hertz or Kayak that location had closed. Paid in full when booked and was not able to get another vehicle from any other car rental service.

When we arrived to pick-up our car from the Appleton, Wisconsin Hertz rental agency on 8/19/21, we were informed that Hertz had packed up and left on 8/13/21. They never contacted us to indicate what had occurred, either by phone, text or email. Our daughter was getting married on 8/21/21 and we did not have a car. We paid for the car, tried contacting them by phone, email and on their website. NO LUCK. Now, we are trying to get our money back. What happened to Hertz? Only Hertz knows and they aren't telling.

Great gas mileage, but Kia Rio handles poorly in windy weather. Aerodynamics need improvement!

The pickup was not at the Appleton Airport. I landed and went straight the Hertz counter and was told that I rented from Hertz half a mile down the road. They told me they could not change the rental and that I'd need to get an Uber to take me to the other Hertz location. I could however return the rental to the airport location. I won't rent from Hertz again and I will tell everyone I know about this experience.They could have switched the rental or at the very least given me a ride to the other location. I had to pay my Uber driver $10 for the inconvenience that Hertz caused me.

Great StaffA young woman (Kali, I think) stayed late until my delayed flight landed and I was able to complete the rental. Wonderful customer service.

The staff in Appleton were very helpful and friendly. I ended up there very late due to flight cancelationsa and they waited up for me.When I signed up for a car rental, I was led to Appleton even though I wanted to rent at Greenbay airport. Fortunately, I ended up flying into Appleton because of cancelation of Detroit to Greenbay flight. Unfortunately, ALamo wouldn't let me drop the car off at GreenBay for my return flight. for some ridiculous reason, I had to drive the car 25 miles south to Appleton and turn around and drive back to GreenBay with the same car. Otherwise the cost of my car would have gone up by 300%. this is the kind of coporate lack of common sense that makes it very inconvenient for customers. I didn't appreciate having to add 50 miles and one hour to my drive to the airport.

Easy pick up. Car in great shape. Better rental than I thought and great value!The only draw back for me...and it's minor...I had to drop the keys and leave as it was after 10 pm. I would prefer to have settled it all right then and there. But that's just personal preference.

The staff was very friendly and I loved that they did the inspection with you. They were also very accommodating with the mix up in the price given.My confirmation said I would be paying $18.70 including estimated taxes and fees. I called ahead to ask some questions and was informed the rental showed as $38. The staff was able to accommodate my booked rate. Not sure why there was a price discrepancy.

It was not clear when I made the reservation on Kayak that I would be charged extra for mileage. Mileage would have added another $150 to my reservation, so I cancelled my rental at the last minute. I also had to cancel my trip entirely due to the added expense. It was disappointing and stressful. I wish the pricing was clearer. I'm not a fan of the car rental business model and usually try to avoid them.
5.6 Okay2017 Jun 21
The priceThat you fooled me into believing I was getting a good price, when in fact you rented me a car w/o free miles included. Who does rent a car w/o at least a certain number of miles paid. So, what looked like a good price ended up to be a scam. I got the car directly from Avis for even less money than you pretended it would cost. Shame on on you for trying to scam people. Never again Kayak.

The vehicle was very spacious and exactly what we needed for the trip.When we first got the vehicle it was warning that it needed a oil change so that was a little worry some but over all didn’t affect us.

Not worth the moneyToyota sienna was very nice ride and very roomy.A lot of extra charges they don't tell you about. Even rented the dam van 20 mins away so it's not like someone that they 'could" of took advantage of. Will never deal with budget AGAIN!!!!

Top tips for renting a car in Appleton

  • Appleton includes several sites that you can visit for an enjoyable trip, and having a rented vehicle ensures you can comfortably access areas within and outside the city. A short drive to the Hearthstone Historic House Museum allows you to see the world’s first home powered by hydroelectricity. You can also opt to go to other locations via a comfortable ride obtained from car rentals in Appleton. For instance, the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary sits around 36 miles away in nearby Green Bay city, allowing you to drive with family for an adventurous experience.
  • Appleton International Airport is approximately 5 miles from Appleton city center and features a Rental Car Center. You can select your desired type from the car rentals in Appleton provided by well-known companies, such as Avis, Enterprise, Alamo, National, and Budget. You can conveniently locate these providers at the airport by going outside the Baggage Claim, exiting door number three, and crossing the street to the pick-up and drop-off lanes.
  • Appleton has a well-connected road network with streets and freeways, delivering convenient movement for residents and visitors. You can decide to get a navigation system to ensure you can avoid getting lost in the city’s numerous and interconnected avenues, streets, and drives. Some areas in Appleton incorporate a raised crosswalk, so be mindful of pedestrians and the bump during your rides.
  • The rush hour in Appleton comes on highways that connect to interstate roads, carrying travelers to and from nearby cities like Chicago. The morning traffic results from commuters leaving for work between approximately 6:30am to 8:30am, and you want to stay away from the busy main streets and expressways at these times. Winter conditions in the town create slick roads that require extra vigilance and slower speeds as you go about your day.
  • Book your rental car in Appleton at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
