Pros:

Friendly service at the ick-up location; VERY pleased that when I called the 1-800 number to modify my reservation, I actually talked to a real person in under 5 minutes. Overall, Alamo has provided the best rental service that I have experienced in a long time. Will definitely use them again.

Cons:

The Kansas City location required additional photo IDs (fraud prevention). This didn't affect me, but others may need to be aware of the requirement (which was not advertised in advance).

Cons:

Alamo was closed when we arrived in Kansas City. The rental car company to the right next counter over had to handle the paperwork. I had already booked and paid online for an easy pick up. They made us jump through hoops while my 90 year old parents had to wait for us.

Pros:

Everything!! The car was clean, customer service was very clear and nice to work with during the process.

Cons:

Me having a mobile app to track my reservation better. I had to search through emails and track down information. This is a problem for me not with the service. Alamo was amazing and I will definitely rent from them again. Thank you

Pros:

The staff was nice, but there were not enough so wait times were long

Cons:

I got a car that was dirty (inside and out) and that WAS NOT FULL OF GAS, but was down almost a quarter tank. When I pointed this out, I just got a shrug. Bet if I returned it down a quarter tank the reaction would be different

They let me close any vehicle in the line so i chose a mini van. It was perfect for my needs, clean and new. Return was super quick at the MCI Airport. Never had to wait at all for the shuttle bus. Shuttle was about 5 min from the airport.

Showed up after a 30 minute delayed flight, no one at the counter to assist. Actually have a clerk at the counter that can assist during later hours. Or, if you're going to partner with another rental agency and defer your customers to their desk, make sure that desk is staffed. Avis did and was able to match your rate and earn my future business.

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The counter was closed prior to the scheduled closing time. We were unable to pick up our rental under this reservation and had to check nearby counters that were still open to try to find an available rental. The entire fiasco ended up costing us more than double the original reservation. How will we receive compensation for the unacceptable incompetence?

Cons:

You could have remained open until your scheduled closing time or at least until our scheduled pickup. We called ahead once the plane was on the ground and no one ever picked up despite it being 15 minutes prior to our reservation.

Top tips for renting a car at Kansas City Airport

  • Finding locations for car hire at Kansas City Airport is a little different to other international airports, as there are no car hire desks in the airport’s arrivals terminal. However, there are shuttle buses available that can take you to the car hire facility that is located a couple of miles down the road, around a 5-10min transfer from outside the terminal.
  • Kansas City Airport car hire is a better and more convenient option for those wanting to travel both around the city and the surrounding areas. Kansas City has an excellent public bus service, but is still predominantly a car-driven city, with wide highways and an easy-to-navigate road network. The options you have for car hire from the airport far outweigh the public transport options, as they alleviate the reliance on bus schedules as well as only having a select number of destinations from the airport to choose from. Hiring a car will give you more freedom without having to factor in time waiting for buses.
  • After arranging a vehicle through car hire at Kansas City Airport, getting into the city is extremely simple. As soon as you’ve picked up your vehicle and are on your way, it takes only around 22min on average to drive to the city from the airport. Depending on where your car collection point is located, you can navigate your way out of the car hire facility via London Drive or Madrid Avenue and connect onto Cookingham Drive / NW 120th Street which links to I-29 S all the way to downtown.
  • If you’re looking at car hire at Kansas City Airport, it’s important to be aware that the car collection points are separate to the areas in which you need to return your vehicle. A shuttle bus service will take you to the collection point from the airport terminal, but upon return you need to follow the clear signposts directing you to the return points for each car hire company; they are located on Paris Street and Madrid Avenue.
  • Book your rental car at Kansas City Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
