Dollar, Makes no Sense...Not a damn thingI booked this on 3/8 for the 5/12-5-15 trip. I was told it was good to go. Lies. Dollar and Kayak never disclosed that if you where going to use a debit card, you must pass a credit check. My credit is a bit low, but I had the money in my account and had budgeted not only for the cost of the rental, but a $300 deposit. So after I was told, 800+ Miles from home, A few hours from reuniting my wife with her daughter who she had not seen in 12 years.. that Dollar was not going to provide me a car unless I could provide a credit card (That I don't have), I went to Avis, paid more, got a car and got customer service that cared and worked for me.. AND it was a $200 deposit. So even though I paid more, in the end, I got a car, made the trip and my wife was with her daughter for not only Mothers day, but for her HS Graduation. When Dollar failed, Avis came through for us. I will never use Dollar, no Kayak again and this is being shared far and wide.

car was clean and ran well, although the agent told us we had a full tank of gas and it was a half tank, we had to notify them after we had gotten down the road. Susan Martinwe were afraid we would have a flat tire because the left rear tire was bald. Thank God we didn't !

Dollar C/S errorSpoke to Dollar Rental C/S. I had questions on model of vehicle. A woman who ID herself as "Cee" advised, I would be issued a midsize vehicle. She asked to book the reservation which I did. I told her the reservation was from 5th April to 17th. When I arrived my reservation was for the 6th April to the 17th. Dollar could not accommodate me and I had to hire a taxi which cost $50.00. In receiving my rental on the 6th I was issued a compact. Recommendation: Don't out source to foreign countries that can't speak the English language. Bill

Frustrating. I'm a long-time Alamo renter (and fan). But we got into a car that REEKED of cigarettes, and immediately reported that. We were told "oh, we'll make sure to credit you for that." When we returned the car at the end of our rental, that hadn't happened (no credit at all, no notation on the receipt). We called, and were told that someone from Burbank would be in touch. When we got the call from someone at Burbank, it was as if he hadn't looked at the record at all, and his message was "well, when you return the car, we can ..." WHAT?? The car was returned DAYS before this call was placed. SO frustrating - and ... why did we get a cigarette-reeking car in the first place? Someone had clearly sprayed one or two pumps of air freshener in it, but that quickly dissipated. Very, very, very disappointing.

Airline cancelled our return flight and delayed our return one day. Called Alamo and asked to delay car return 1 day. Alamo representative said we could keep the car but the cost would go from $98.00 to $340.00. I offered to pay the one day rate of $60 for the additional day Chad said he could not do that and could not help. I drove to the airport and returned the car in a snowstorm. Paid the $98.00 and got a car from another agency. Beware of Alamo

1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 14
Our car was not there on time so the gentlemen offered us two alternatives. One was a minivan. We had reserved a large suv. We took the minivan and asked if there would be a discount because on the websites, the minivans were cheaper than the large suvs. He said no, the vans are actually more expensive. Then he pulls the van up and it’s dirty inside and out. We were already behind because of the car not being there, but then had to clean it also. We were disappointed and I saw that with other customers at the location also.

We registered online and received a confirmation number. Arrived at Enterprise on a Thursday only to find out that we did not have a car reserved but were placed on a waiting list, 11th in line on the list and wouldn't have a car available for us until Monday afternoon or Tues. If there are no cars available, the website should not reserve vehicles they do not have! We ended up going to a dealership and buying a car. So frustrating!!!

There were only 3 of us in line, I was the third. There was only one agent working Avis first and Payless as a “side job”. The gentleman was polite and apologetic but the lady in front of us couldn’t get the credit card machine to approve her cc. It took 20 minutes while the rest of us had to wait. They could have had two working the counter. We got a late start. The car was perfect
8.0 Excellent2019 Oct 10
They upgraded me at no charge due to not having cars on lot in my tier.Payless was connected to Avis but different lines for each; there was no one line for Payless but attendants were all occupied w Avis customers - I had to wait until all Avis customers were attended to so I waited about 10-15 minutes until being attended to - there should be a Payless representative waiting for Payless customers or have one of the Avis representatives waiting on Payless customers or have Payless customers join Avis line.

We thought we were renting a full size truck, but when we arrived we’re presented with a choice to take a Toyota Tacoma or wait several hours for a full size to be returned. Because of our schedule, took the smaller truck and had to pay the same price. They had a bunch of weasel words/reasons why it was the same price…that amounted to “that’s just the way we do it”. Hope this helps the next unsuspecting customer.

The pick up process was a little slow but only because only the manager was there. Otherwise, great service overall and the car was VERY clean.
2.0 Mediocre2021 Jun 21
The morning of our pick up (8am) the staff called to say our passenger van was not available. They charged us the same price for an Expedition, AND then we found out there's an 11% tax for picking it up at the airport. We had to squeeze into an SUV, gas to leave some luggage at home, and had to pay MORE for something that was not our fault. All with no warning or heads up so we could have looked for another option. WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN...

I liked NOTHING. Booked an suv a month ago, was called by them the day before to confirm the suv, showed up right on time and they did not have anything available. Unacceptable. And they could have cared less.Have the vehicle (or something similar) as scheduled. Terrible TERRIBLE TERRIBLE SERVICE.

The online rental experience was excellent.I was helped within 5 minutes of arrival. It took 1 1/2 hours to pick up the rental. The rental car was not at the location and they did not share this information with me. If they would have told the truth, I could have been much more understanding.

Friendly and helpful staff a Hertz location at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport.This car rental was similar to two other car rentals I have experienced in Wichita during the past two months. Enterprise, Avis and Hertz all promised a minivan or large suv. Enterprise cancelled on me one day before I needed the rental, telling me two renters had not returned vehicles. Avis and Hertz only had smaller capacity vehicles available. It seems there exists a bait-and-switch approach to car rentals in Wichita, Kansas.

Yes the staff were nice.The car was pretty dirty and if I understood correctly it is because they wash it offsite and they didn't have a way to clean after it got dirty in the rain. There was no windshield wiper fluid which was not a good deal when I got into some snow and rain. The car drove fantastic even though it had close to 50,000 miles.

It would be better if they rented out a car))), which they did not because apparently only american citizens can rent AVIS.

No problems at all , at pick up . But a few into our trip the maintenance required notification came on , the worse thing is that the type of car we got had the normal head lights to high and other drivers would flash at us probably thinking we had high beam lights on , it became a little dangerous in a two way freeway ,big trucks turn there high beam lights probably thinking we were doing it on porpoise ( Toyota Highlander)

Awful location for a car rental business. Tiny office/ waiting room; barest bones imaginable. First offered minivan was a Toyota Siena stripper in poor shape. Lots of dings, rubs, scratches, scrapes, even front plastic fascia was detached near the left headlight indicating some kind of contact. Worst part: vehicle didn’t have a remote key fob. Swapped for a 2018 Dodge Caravan GT. Even though vehicle was on the lot, it wasn’t rental ready. Empty bottles and trash. They quickly took it to the back to clean it up while I waited. Because the guys that man the counter are the same guys that do the garage stuff, they are woefully undermanned. Operating on a shoestring? Eventually vehicle was presented. Still had miscellaneous garbage in it. While driving it home to load up in the drizzle I discovered the rear wiper was malfunctioning; it had been twisted 180 degrees so it wiped the body below the window instead of the glass. I returned it. Did I mention the lousy location? Only one way to access their location; if you make turn down the wrong street, even with their lot in sight, there’s no way to get there because of one way strays, closed gates, etc. You have to retrace your route to start again. I had to go in into the office. A guy came out to the car with. with me. They flipped the wiper arm over. I didn’t have time to quibble. I took it as is. I got it home in the driveway to load up. Noticed front tire and rear tires were not same brand and relatively worn, and all air stems were missing their twist on caps. Oh well. During the trip I had to use wipers almost the entire time. Yep, you guessed it. Noisy chattering drove everyone crazy. On Thanksgiving Day, in a small town I found an auto parts store. Bought and installed new wiper blades on my rental. Fixed it! Good clean and silent wipers for the first time in four days. Also bought some window wipes to clean up the filthy front and rear window interiors. At least the car worked well. I’m in the process of having Avis reimbursement me for the wipers. Bottom line: Avis corporate needs to do a better job protecting their brand. The location I used was no better than “Economy Motors” not something I expected from Avis.

What I thought I booked was great. What I got was notI searched for airport pickup. What was booked was offsite. Avis airport desk would not tell me how far it was to the offsite location so I could Uber over, they charged double the price and did not enter my Wizard number. Told me he would have to start the reservation all over.

Top tips for renting a car in Wichita

  • A hire car is the most comfortable and cost-effective way of exploring not only the city of Wichita, but also the surrounding state of Kansas. With a car, you can explore at your own pace Wichita’s main points of interest, such as the Old Town area or the Tanganyika Wildlife Park, which is just 15 miles from the center. Hop into the car for a road trip to Oklahoma City, which is about 160 miles south of Wichita.
  • All the major car hire companies, including Alamo, Avis, and Budget, can be found at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport (ICT), which is only about 7 miles west of the city center. The hire car desks are situated near the Baggage Claim area of the main terminal, and the hire cars are parked on the first floor of the parking garage.
  • Driving in Wichita is pretty straightforward and, while downtown can get a bit crowded, there are many places where you can drive and park your car. Drivers are allowed to take a right turn on a red light, but always give pedestrians and bicyclists the right of way. Summer gets very hot, so make sure you get a car with good A/C. Tornadoes are common in Kansas, so if you encounter one either steer away from its path or seek shelter immediately.
  • Traffic in Wichita is very mild, especially compared to other big U.S. cities. The roads are more crowded during rush hour (between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.), but as long as you avoid driving during those time frames you can easily drive even the longer commutes done in under 30 minutes. You may find there’s more congestion in the winter since the weather can get a bit rough, causing more accidents than normal.
  • Book your rental car in Wichita at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Wichita are around -2% cheaper than other car types, on average
