Pros:

Staff was friendly.

Cons:

The vehicle was filthy inside. There were crumbs everywhere in the back seats. The non smoking car was definitely smoked in a reeked of cigarettes. The navigation screen was busted. On top of all that, one of the tires had a significant leak and I had to put air in it several times. Very bad experience.

Pros:

The staff was very helpful and kind.

Cons:

The car was NOT clean...at all. There was trash under the drivers seat and it appears that someone spilt a milkshake on the shift stick/center console. I have a hard time believing that if the car was this dirty, that it could have been “sanitized!!” If I had not traveled almost an hour to visit my son, I would have returned the car to exchange.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Only issue was the address I was given to drop off the vehicle in Tucker, Ga, was not the location. My GPS took be to a totally different building. Needed to make a call to find where I was to go. Return desk acknowledged it has been an issue.

Cons:

Only car I have rented over the last couple of years that did not have active XSM radio or navigation.

Jul 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Clean and well equipped car. The agent was nice and professional

Cons:

Agent not masked. Not informed when reserving that there would be an additional $200 deposit placed on my credit card. When at the counter I was told that it would be released upon return of car. I don’t know if it has been returned yet, but I was on a trip for an interview during the pandemic and placing an additional $200 would have made my rental decision clear Togo with a different company.

Oct 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Great price for a full size car and super quick easy pickup at the airport.

Cons:

Even though the price was great for a Hyundai Sonata we just couldn't get over how dirty, old, well used the car was. The car had close to 40,000 miles and looked it. Large deep scratch down the drivers side but the worst part was the filthy upholestry and windows. We had to stop 2 different times to clean all of the interior windows because you just couldn't see through the haze. The towels were black, literally black after wiping them down. The seats could not be cleaned. This was not a quick wipe up of a spill, this was deep down stained over the years dirty. While the price was great and it was indeed a nice large size car the dirty and super well used automobile makes me score a lot lower than usual.

Pros:

Staff we friendly enough at the National center and easy to reach by phone.

Cons:

The hours of pick-up did not match what I needed and the KayakRental car site did NOT give me that information. Luckily, I called ahead and would have had to pay an extra day just to get a pick-up BEFORE 8 a.m. I know that the flight schedule in Roanoke, VA is not large, but not to be able to pick up a car before 8 when that is the only outlet for National is a bit unlucky.

Top tips for renting a car in Roanoke

  • Renting a car for traveling to Roanoke is not just convenient but very economical, especially if you're traveling in a group. You can get a minivan or a station wagon from car rentals in Roanoke and make the trip not just enjoyable but flexible and safe as well. Even if you are traveling alone or on business matters, having a car gives you the ability to schedule your meetings accordingly and meet your associates on time. More conveniently, you can venture out into the more hidden attractions in and outside the city at your own pace without having to worry about when or how to get there. You can even skip town for one day and go catch a game at the Greens Folly Golf Course about 90 miles away, then ride horses at the Shangrila Guest House about 12 miles away from there.
  • When you arrive at the Roanoke Blacksburg Regional Airport (ROA), you can find the rental car center at the baggage claim area. There are several Roanoke car rental agencies on airport premises, including Avis, Budget, Dollar, National, and Enterprise.
  • Jaywalking was decriminalized in Virginia, so you may want to watch out for pedestrians jumping into the road with no warning, whether on marked crosswalks or not. Pay close attention at intersections where you may also run into cyclists and be wary of motorists who may not signal when turning. Drive carefully at the Orange Avenue and Williamson Road intersection—this main intersection is usually backed up and may take a few light cycles before you’re finally able to get through.
  • The morning commute rush hour in Roanoke starts at 6am and goes all the way to 8am. In the evening, you can expect rush hour traffic from 3pm to 7pm. Roanoke is a relatively big city, so you can expect the traffic to be backed up bumper-to-bumper during rush hours. Interstate 81, Interstate 581, and Highway 220 get especially congested, so make sure to tune into traffic updates before you start your journey.
  • Book your rental car in Roanoke at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Roanoke are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average
