The desk was not manned at all. The car we got (which we did not notice until morning), was completely unacceptable with the front valance broken and dragging on the ground and TAPE along the windshield seal. This car should not have been in service.

The only thing with the drop off was i was unclear about who and where i should drop off the vehicle. There wasn't an Alamo in Killeen TX airport. So i had to call to see what agency I was supposed to use.

Leaving early = terrible customer experience15 hr plus delay due to weather website shows counter close's at 1030pm local, we arrived at 1015pm and no one was there thus costing me $150 usd for a taxi to round Rock. If I was the manager I'd fire those people as there were 4 other groups in my situation.thanks for nothing alamo!

Staff was excellent and explained pick up and drop off so that I had no problems with eitherIt doesn't say which car you are getting and mune was like driving a gocart. Very rough and very low to ground. I ahouldve swiyched it out with something else equivalent.

Nothing.Staff very unhelpful. Had a reservation for over a month and upon arrival at airport they had no cars available and was told it could be 30 minutes or 4 hours before they might have a car and it may not be the size I had reserved. Staff could not have cared less about customer service.

Waited hour and a half to be told they couldn’t rent us the vehicle due to mechanical issue. Shouldn’t this have been checked upon previous return?

Week Long Stay In TexasI liked that when I landed in Killeen, Texas I was able to take care of all the paperwork and get my car keys right next to the luggage pick up site while I waited for my bags. The car was well maintained and the price i was charged was reasonable. Dropping it off did not really present any hassle either.

Disappointed with available selectionI had reserved a car that was listed as a Ford Escort, or similar. No big deal. My beater car is an escort and it has a big trunk. When I arrived to pick up my rental, they had two cars to choose from. Both of which were hatchbacks with very limited space for luggage/cargo. I expressed my disappointment with them considering there were probably 50 cars on the Hertz lot, but none of them were for rental as they were for sale. They couldn't even upgrade me to a larger vehicle because there weren't any available. I declined the rental and asked for my $36 insurance refund and they said I would have to go through Kayak to get the refund. I know it was Thanksgiving weekend, and cars were scarce, but they should advertise if it is a hatchback or a regular car.

The van was great for the six passengers. All adults with plenty off space.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 28
Budget totally screwed up my day. I reserved the car for 24 hours at 9 am. They put in the fine fine print somewhere that if you aren’t there within 15 minutes they cancel the reservation. So my flight doesn’t get in until 945 and there was never a 945 option. Then they said well we don’t have your truck but we can give you another vehicle for extra money. Total rip-off. Yeah they can put something in the contract that just totally screws you but is that the right answer. I think not. Will never use again

The staff was not helpful. They did not have the vehicle or a similar one available for my reservation. The clerk stated she wasn't sure about the seating capacity for the vehicle she tried to pawn off. I told her I must have seating for 7 as was reserved. We walked around the parking lot and she showed me that the vehicle I wanted was on a doughnut and they couldn't get it fixed until they had 5 flats to fix. I drove an hour to pick up this car. She offered a 12 passenger van that looked like a church bus or a Highlander with seating for 5. Neither was acceptable. She didn't care that I had already driven an hour to get the reserved vehicle. She stated they called and left a message, but the number they used was not the number on my confirmation and I never received it. She made no attempt to make the situation better or offer a remedy other than a car that was too small or a tank.The agent at the Killeen Airport was not courteous or helpful in any way. When I got upset, she seemed to think it was funny.

Car was fine when I finally got itI booked 4 different reservations and was not able to receive a rental until 3 days after I made my first booking. I showed up after my flight landed and was told my reservation was canceled because they had no vehicles. How was I able to reserve one (4 different times) only to show up and not be able to get a car? Made my business trip start off extremely inconveniently.
7.2 Good2019 Dec 23
Car was clean and up to standard.Customer service representative was too busy to give individual care. When she tried she gave policy information but not personalized care. Due to this I hesitate using or recommending Budget to my family or my company and friends.

Like it never even happenedThere was nothing to like because the location was closed when my flight arrived.Booked the car, flew in late, and closed leaving me stranded at the airport late at night. No where or no time was the hours of operation given when booking the car.

NothingEVERYTHING! First my reservation got switched to an office (Copperas Cove) that wasn't open on the day I was suppose to pick up my rental. Then I called the original office (Killeen) to have it switched back and make sure they had my car at the correct pick up point. Not only did the Killeen office not have my reservation information, but they didn't even have the size vehicle I reserved! Then they told me the only thing they could do about it was hope someone turned in my type of vehicle in time. No attempt to find one and have it brought from another office or anything. No customer service, no remorse for the inconvenience, a total lack of curtousies. I will never be using Enterprise again if I can help it.

Great car for the price!The price and type of car was perfect for what I needed it for. I got great gas mileage and the car performed well. I was totally satisfied with the car and the way the employees treated me. No hidden fees and they offered to take me back home, but I had a friend to pick me up.I had an appointment to pick up the car at 9am, I arrived at 8:50am, but didn't get the car until 9:45. I wasn't the only one wait to get their car at the schedule time. Other than that, its a great Enterprise car rental location.

Early arrivalThat Brian went above and beyond the call of duty in customer satisfactory.I arrived early (12:15) and the sales rep. told me i still had to wait until 1pm to pick up my vehicle, she was very inconsiderate about the situation.I asked her can I just get a vehicle since I was already there and she told me no, I had to wait til my reservation time. I waited 20 minutes and I asked Brian would they mind coming to my house to pick me because my reservation time was for 1pm. He said no problem took my address down and I walked out. He came behind me and asked me would i just like to get a vehicle now and I said yes please. He was very helpful unlike the sales rep that greeted me.

Gave my prepaid car away and charged same for smaller size. Front desk rep was not helpful and was acting like"so what". I believe they may have over charged me. My car was prepaid, flight was delayed, called Dollar and no answers, arrived after they closed and was told by Priceline that Dollar would honor my rental if I went back at 8 AM. Wrong and Im out $70 in taxi fees.

It was a quick in and out, both picking up and dropping off. The person I dealt with was very pleasant.The instructions on the documentation on how to complete the transaction when dropping off the car were inaccurate. It talked about a drop box, but there was none. It did not mention whether to leave the keys in the car or not.

I reserved a rental car at AVIS through KAYAK. Then had someone drive me an hour to find that they had no rental cars available. Could not find a rental from any agency within two hours of my location in central Texas. I ended up renting a 20 foot UHAUL truck for $300 plus another $100 in gas just to drive 6 hours away. Maybe I dont understand how reservations work, but this experience has not been great from KAYAK or AVIS. My recommendation would be to skip KAYAK then just call rental car companies from the location you are going. A reservation number from the rental company is almost always guaranteed. A reservation from KAYAK or some other 3rd party deal finder is not guaranteed. Good luck.

Top tips for renting a car in Killeen

  • Killeen features a number of outdoor attractions while being situated in close proximity to other major cities in the state of Texas. A car rental in Killeen will ensure you’re able to reap all the benefits of the area. Rental cars remove the restraints of public transportation timetables, freeing you to explore the parks in the area at your leisure. They also guarantee that you have a ride back to your hotel after major events, such as races at the Texas Thunder Speedway, rather than having to wait for a taxi or rideshare to become available. A rental also presents you with opportunities to drive the roughly 1h 30min journey south to Austin or the roughly 1h 45min drive to Waco.
  • With limited nonstop flights available for passengers to fly into Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport (GRK), your flight will likely land in the city of Austin. Fortunately, there are a number of top-tier rental car companies at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), which makes picking up a vehicle you’ve booked through KAYAK a simple exercise. From the Barbara Jordan Terminal and Rental Car Facility, you’ll want to exit to the garage on level one, then you’ll want to take the elevator up to level three. Here, you’ll find service counters for National, Alamo, Hertz, Budget, Thrifty, Enterprise and others.
  • The city of Killeen does not have a significant amount of pedestrian traffic for which you’ll need to stay alert as it is a city populated by motor vehicles. However, there are passenger buses that run along the major roadways within the city. While driving your Killeen car rental, you’ll want to stay alert when behind or next to these buses as they take wide turns and make frequent stops.
  • While Killen is a small city, the rush hours still do add a bit of extra time to commutes. While here, you can expect the roadways to be a bit more congested in the mornings between roughly 5:30am and about 8am, then again in the later afternoon from about roughly 4:30pm to around 6:30pm.
  • Book your rental car in Killeen at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Killeen are around 40% cheaper than other car types, on average
