Car was advertised as a no smoking car. It reeked of cigarette smoke that got worse over time (after whatever fragrance they sprayed to try to cover it up)

MisinformationAgent at the airport was friendly and helpful. She really went above and beyond trying to get me home.I was told all I needed was a debit card. When I got to the rental counter I was not able to rent the car as I only had a debit card with me.

Car was horrible, It make noise when it shouldn’t have. You couldn’t open the trunk unless you took the keys out of the car. The engine revved. Not happy with my experience.

2.0 Mediocre2021 Dec 01
I rented a car for a week from the Green River road Evansville Indiana location and I was told by a rep that if I returned the car earlier than when my reservation ended I would be reimbursed for the days I did not use the vehicle. I returned the car on the 3rd day of my rental and I was charged the full amount. If I would have known I would be charged the full amount I would have let the rental sit in my driveway for 4 more days. I told that to the person I returned it to and she said yeah that would be smarter "but there is nothing she can do about it now" because she had already processed the return. I asked if there was someone else I could speak to and she gave me customer services number. I called customer service on Monday (11/8) and they told me they could adjust my bill to the daily rate for a compact car but they could not do the refund until I was fully charged so to call back after Wednesday. I called back Friday (11/12) and they are now saying my bill should be even more than what I paid for it. If that was the case why would it make any sense for them to tell me to call back so I can be charged even more for returning a car half a week early so Hertz can benefit from charging me the full week and charging whoever else they rent it to that day. I am very unhappy with the misinformation I was given and how I was yanked around and wasted my time. I want to be reimbursed for the 4 days I did not use the rental car which is over half of my rental agreement. This is deceitful and Hertz is now able to use the vehicle for other customers that I returned early only at a cost to me. I am very unhappy with how I was treated as a Gold Plus Rewards member. I will not be using Hertz again.

Ryan in Evansville was amiable, attentive and helpful - super great guy!! But the pickup and return was a pain in the butt!! I'll be returning to Evansville for the next few years, but I won't use Hertz unless it has an airport presence.

It was "crunch" time to drive 7 hours to Northern Ohio for a Funeral Showing and Burial. I told the Hertz Representatives while there, my problem. They WERE FAST in doing my Paperwork, and made SURE I understood the charges. I asked to fill the Van with my belongings and they said "SURE, we'll get this done, and you pack your stuff, the Van's fueled up, and all set." They were fast, professional, and QUICK understanding my need(s). THANKS Evansville Hertz, you were helpful AND amazing!!!! sincerely, David E. Fitzgerald

They had a good selection of cars that you can drive. They were up-to-date cars that were new and clean.The idea that you had to have a $200 deposit that was not mentioned until you got to the Hertz counter
4.0 Okay2018 May 15
rules of car rental included "no smoking"Rules of car rental were stressed upon check-in along with cleaning fees associated for smoking or pet in the car. My mother had just been hospitalized and I was in a hurry to begin my 310 mile trip. The car smelled rancid but I didn't have time to do anything else. I drove with windows cracked open and at times all windows all the way down. Very strong cigarette smoke permeated the car. Obviously it had not been cleaned enough after the last rental. Upon return of the car and discussion with Mgr, a discount of one day's rental was refunded. Cars that smell like that shouldn't be on your lot!!!

Great value and car.Too much time trying to upsell to different car and services. No time demo car features. We never did fully understand the cars sound system, had to pull owners manual for cruise control operation, lot of dash board info displays but did not take time to review owners manual to learn how to use. Brief demo of such functions would add value.

Easy Rental ProcessKayak app was easy to use. Hertz people were friendly, inform, and helpful.Walking out in the snow to the end of the parking lot to get the vehicle. No big deal, just not convenient.

The car, a 2020 Dodge Charger was a dream to drive to PCB Florida in. The kids had plenty of room, trunk space was enormous as well. It was very clean, ran like a dream, and if needing a vehicle anytime in future i will definitely ask for one like it. Thank you Enterprise for making our experience such a memorable first time!

Seats in the Dodge Caravan were very comfortable. The car performed really well. It was easy to drive. It made for a more comfortable trip driving to Florida than using a regional airport with layovers, delays, long walks between arrival and take off stations, and uncomfortable airport seating,.

Our flight was cancelled and we worried that we wouldn't be able to pick up our rental car as we would arrive after the branch had closed at 7. We called and the first person we spoke to was not helpful and basically said we were out of luck because they close at 7. We called again (possibly a different number?), and this person was extremely helpful. She explained that she would leave the keys and contract in a secure area for us to pick up after hours. When we arrived at the airport, she had stayed late to make sure that we and others arriving late due to the cancelled flight were taken care of. I wish I knew her name so I could recommend her for some kind of commendation. She really turned our trip around and saved us a lot of trouble.

Dropped off 6 am at the airport. No one at the parking lot or front desk. Returned cars filled Key lock box was jammed, so customers just piled returned keys on the desk. This seemed true for all 5 or 6 car agencies at the small regional airport.

Staff was not friendly. No one was there when I dropped it off and it was early i n the evening.The vehicle was filthy, and even though it was only supposed to be a $25.00 rental, they ended up charging over$65.00. An absolute joke!

I had to extend my rental for one day - easy peasy to do and they charged the same rate instead of jacking up the price for the extra day.
8.4 Excellent2017 Jul 13
The car was in a different spot and we had to hunt for it. When we got to Nashville the next day our contract had not been entered properly and the office had to try to get it released. It is good we weren't in a hurry.
6.4 Good2017 Jun 27
Best option in a tough situationI needed to rent a car on a Sunday morning because I was involved in an auto accident on Saturday night, far from home. Avis offered the best prices to get me home (in Kansas). The process was easy and relatively affordable compared to the other outrages quotes from Enterprise.I wish the company would have opened before noon. My drop off experience was frustrating, as well, but that has nothing to do with Evansville.

Just what I requestedThe price was what I was offered, it is the add on fees that jacked it up. Well have to say it was just right for what I needed. The pickup/dropoff was a little walk to get to, but it was an airport.

The front desk agent was so slow. Received the car without a full tank of gas and with all 4 tires low air. Received a Kia Soul . I hate the way it handles and has no pickup on the highway. Overall a bad experience. I will not be renting from this company again.

Top tips for renting a car in Evansville

  • Getting a rental car can significantly ease your movement in Evansville. You'll be able to move from one place to another without the stress that is accompanied by buses or taxis. You'll also be comfortable and in control of the schedule that you want to keep during your stay in the city. With a vehicle from car rentals in Evansville, you can go as close as Mesker Park Zoo, which is a short drive away from town, or go as far as Jasper, which is about 63 miles from Evansville, without having to wait on anyone. Jasper is home to the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame, and if you’re a baseball fan, this might be a place you'd want to visit.
  • When you land at the Dress Regional Airport (EVV), you'll find there are different car rental agencies to choose from, including Enterprise, Budget, Avis, Alamo, Hertz, and National. The rental car counter is on airport premises, and you'll find it at the baggage claim area. The rental cars are parked outside the baggage claim, so once you pick up your key from your Evansville car rental of choice, you can drive off to the city.
  • It is illegal to use handheld devices while driving in Evansville. This law's violators can be handed a Class C infraction, which is punished by paying a fine of up to $500. Some laws limit drivers from operating any vehicle in reverse unless done without interfering with traffic and within reasonable safety.
  • Expect heavy traffic in Evansville, especially during the morning rush hour, which spans between 7am and 8am. If there's any construction underway in the city, it might make navigating some routes more difficult compared to others. One of the more dangerous intersections in the city where you should be careful is the Green River Rd and Vogel Rd intersection, especially when turning on to Green River. Traffic becomes a gridlock at the intersection between Vann Ave and Lloyd Expressway, so give yourself extra time if you must commute. Be careful when driving at the intersection between Oak Hill Rd and Lynch Rd as it's prone to accidents.
  • Book your rental car in Evansville at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Evansville are around 8% cheaper than other car types, on average
