Budget gets you on the price. They charge your credit card double the price you originally got when you drop your vehicle off. Very disappointed with this experience.

Staff was very professional and efficient.The car was very worn, seats were stained, loud, uncomfortable. I thought I was getting a volkswagon jetta but ended up with a toyota corrolla. It looked like it had been just returned from a college road trip.

The Budget rental itself was fine.Misleading sign-up. Said I would not have to pay until at the rental car counter. But charged $12 immediately for Allianz, although it said $9. Thought it was for accident protection but it was for cancelation insurance or something. Will never use Kayak again for rental cars.

The original pricyfor rental of a small suv for 3 days was $126.00, with bumper to bumper coverage was an $35 a day ( full comprehensive was $72 a day), oh and would you like road side assistance coverage ($10 per day) ripped off $273 for 3 days!

The gentleman that assisted me with exchanging a vehicle I was given was very kind and helpful.When I picked up the initial rental it had a flat tire, after I put air in the tire the flat tire indicator did not go off so I went back to exchange it for another vehicle. It would be more helpful if the vehicles are inspected prior to being issued to potential renters.

The staff at Ronald Reagan Airport was extremely helpful, and Ms. Benita's customer service skills are excellent.The car we reserved and expected to drive in Newport News was unavailable and we had to drive to DC to get one that would work for us, which was very frustrating and time consuming.

I had reserved a small or compact car (I hate driving large vehicles on unfamiliar roads). They offered me an F150 (large pickup) or a van! They were good enough to at least get me a large SUV, which was less of a pain but far from what I had reserved.

Car was good. No hassle picking upReturn. There were three staff members visible around the counter all of whom were talking to someone on cellphones. I had to wait 15 minutes before one young lady was kind enough to talk to me

Tire pressureLow tire pressure alarm sounded on the second day of our rental. I checked the air pressure in all four tires - over 50 psi in three tires and less than 25 in the fourth. Obviously, this is a safety issue that could have resulted in a blow out. Avis' staff should perform simple checks like this (also oil and other fluids) as a part of their prep.

Staff was niceThey didn’t have convertible that I booked. I had planned it use as a photo prop with several different parties and had change everything. Not sure who’s at fault but taking 3 hours on a Saturday to go get the car only to find out less than 4 hours prior to the plans that it was not there!

Top tips for renting a car at Newport News Intl Airport

  • Reserving a car rental at Newport News Intl Airport is a sure way to visit Virginia’s famous attractions at your own convenience. For a city like Newport News, it’s recommended that you rent a car in advance, as trying to book after you've already landed can be somewhat of a hassle. Whereas there is ample public transportation from the airport to get you to various stops throughout the area, a rental car offers you the freedom to get to your desired destination directly. Also, it saves you the waiting that comes with public transportation, making sure that you arrive at the landmarks on your bucket list in time.
  • Booking a car rental at Newport News Intl Airport is relatively easy for visitors. All arrivals levels of all the terminal buildings have either a rental car counter or a courtesy telephone, which you can use to contact the various car rental companies at this facility. The car rental counters are located near the baggage carousels in the terminal buildings. On arrival, follow the signs to these counters, and find the company you booked with.
  • To drop off your Newport News Intl Airport car rental, take it back to where you initially rented it. As you drive to Newport News Intl Airport, pay attention to the signage directing you to the rental car returns. Park the car at the allocated lot and finalize any paperwork or questions that the rental car associate may require you to answer. After that, head to the departure lounge at the appropriate terminal and wait to board your flight back home.
  • Like any other city, Newport News is not devoid of congested driving conditions during peak periods, particularly before midmorning and late in the evening when driving your car rental at Newport News Intl Airport. That will include traveling in the Hampton Roads zone. If possible, avoid renting a car during busy holiday and weekend periods as most people will be heading to and from the airport, thus making the whole process time-consuming. Plan and make your reservations during off-peak hours.
  • Book your rental car at Newport News Intl Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
