KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in South Burlington

  • Getting a vehicle from car rentals in South Burlington offers several advantages over public transportation. In South Burlington, the freedom of having a rental car allows you to explore the region and attractions, including Red Rocks Park, Overlook Park, and the Fleming Museum of Art, with utmost convenience. A rental car will also give you the freedom to embark on spontaneous journeys and visits to remote areas that public transport might not facilitate. Moreover, car rentals in South Burlington offer the convenience of loading and unloading luggage, especially for families or those carrying sports equipment. A rental car will also grant you the opportunity to avoid the constraints of fixed schedules, enabling you to immerse yourself fully in touring the region.
  • The South Burlington metropolis is served primarily by four airports, including Patrick Leahy Burlington International Airport (BTV), Lebanon Municipal Airport (LEB), Adirondack Regional Airport (SLK), and Plattsburgh International Airport (PBG). Therefore, you will find a perfect destination for your flights to the region at any of these airports. At BTV, you'll find car rental desks situated inside the terminal, on the main floor, near the baggage claim. Upon arrival at LEB, you'll access car rental counters in the arrivals area of the airport's terminal building. SLK features car rental counters within the main terminal building in the arrivals area. At PBG, there are several car rentals in South Burlington operating counters in the baggage claim area of the terminal building.
  • Driving in South Burlington is a pleasant experience, primarily due to the strict enforcement of traffic rules. The city's well-maintained roads and clear signage facilitate a smooth flow of traffic, thereby improving motorists' safety and convenience. At crosswalks, drivers are accustomed to yielding to pedestrians, demonstrating the community's emphasis on pedestrian safety. The city's speed limits are strictly enforced, promoting a regulated and steady pace of travel that not only ensures safety but also contributes to a more environmentally friendly and calm driving environment. Drivers display a high level of respect for traffic regulations, as evidenced by courteous actions such as yielding the right-of-way and maintaining the appropriate following distance. When operating a vehicle from South Burlington car rentals, carefully follow the city's traffic rules.
  • In South Burlington, Vermont, rush hour usually leads to a challenging driving experience. Rush hour occurs during the weekdays from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. During these periods, the region's major roads, including Interstate 89 (I-89) and US Route 7, feature heavy traffic congestion as commuters travel to and from work and school. To avoid these traffic hotspots, commuters often consider alternative routes like Dorset Street and Williston Road, which provide some relief from the rush-hour traffic congestion.
  • Book your rental car in South Burlington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in South Burlington are around 38% cheaper than other car types, on average

The city's arterial roads and major thoroughfares have higher speed limits, ranging from around 35 to 50 mph, to accommodate smoother traffic flow.

Sep 2020

Cons:

I noticed at pick up that the wheel cover was missing. I took a pic as suggested by the attendant, if I found any issues with it. When I arrived at my destination, I was asked if I had a flat tire along the way. I told him no that the wheel cover was missing when I picked it up. He told me that I was driving with a donut. I was shocked as it didn't appear smaller than the other tires and I had driven for 4 hours and 260 miles at top speeds of 75 mph. I have no idea if there was another spare in the trunk, the flat tire, or nothing. Fortunately nothing happened, but could have been ugly and never should have been rented out in that condition.

The attendant at Burlington knew I was dropping off the vehicle in Paramus NJ, but tried to give me an EV with very little range, which would not have made the trip. I got her to give me a different vehicle, but she gave me a Mustang with rear wheel drive and not great tires. Unfortunately it snowed the that night and I almost could not make it out of Burlington because the roads were not plowed. Luckily it did not snow further south and I was able to make the trip. Rear wheel drive in Vermont in the Winter is never a good idea. Had I known it was so bad in the snow, I probably would have requested a different vehicle. Luckily I am a very experienced driver and was able adapt and navigate the slick roads without incident. However, the person at the drop off in NJ was great. He was very understanding and helpful. Great employee.

Unfortunately we had a terrible experience. The wait was over two hours. The line was infinite. Thankfully my two year old behaved and patiently waited. Nevertheless, everyone in line was extremely upset. The car was dirty and full of garbage. I will never rent with Budget again. Kind regards, Peter Ventre

I had to wait 2 hours for my rental car because they had none. Even though a reservation means you reserve the car and it’s there at the slotted time. I felt bad for the people running the counter because they were being yelled at by many others. But I quickly lost sympathy when they finally had a car, rushed Nd manipulated me with the insurance and gave me a Canadian car that had a KM dash. Never again.

For older and physically impaired users, better description of the size, leg room, comfort and entry and exits are needed. We may not know the car name and type. To us mid-sized means a roomy sedan not a compact car. Our expectations include an odometer, easy adjustment of the steering wheel and seats. This car was like driving a roller skate. We hit our heads getting in the car, banged our knees on the dashboard and I struggled to get out of the car. Also, personnel need to offer to show the car features and explain them. We didn’t know how to remove the ignition key!

The fact that the car rental location is actually a few miles from the airport, with no rental shuttle, is very annoying. The extra cost of the cab, etc. is rough on tired travelers with a final long drive ahead of them before they reach home. I'd like to see some improvements in convenience in this category. The actual car was fine, and we were pleased with the helpfulness of the young man in charge.

I paid for a mid sized SUV and instead was given a car no bigger than a sedan. My whole goal in paying TRIPLE the price for an suv was to feel safer while driving in the snow (there was a major snowstorm while I was there). When I complained at the counter, the lady said there was nothing she could do even though there were bigger SUVs available in the lot. Instead, I slid and slipped multiple times and was terrified I’d get into an accident. It was traumatic.

Poorly staffed, huge backup at pickup counter. Apparently they did not have staff to clean returns. After waiting almost an hour we chose to take a "dirty" car just to get out of there. The counter staff was pleasant, felt bad for them having to deal with the situation.
