Top tips for renting a car at Reno Airport

  • A car rental at Reno Airport is preferable for passengers who prefer a more personalized experience. This is a better option for those who do not have any particular destinations in mind but rather want to explore Reno on their own time. Moreover, there is no need to worry about what's happening with your luggage while exploring as it will be waiting at the airport.
  • The most common types of vehicles that are rented out at the airport include compact cars, sedans and SUVs. The rates for these vehicles vary depending on factors like the size of the vehicle and fuel type. Most car rental companies at Reno Airport will offer an unlimited mileage package and charge by the day or week instead of charging for every mile.
  • In case you need to return your car after hours, you will be able to do so at the airport garage and avoid paying a drop fee. You can also return your car at the airport 24h a day but will need to pay for an extra day. In case of a mechanical issue, most car rental companies at Reno Airport advise that you find a nearby auto repair shop or tow truck in areas like the Reno Industrial or Stead areas.
  • Reno Airport is usually busy at times when there are conventions or big events in the area. For instance, the Reno Air Races is a yearly event that has tens of thousands of people flying into the airport and renting cars from car rental companies at Reno Airport. As such, you may need to reserve your car rental in advance. The best part about renting a car from Reno Airport is that there are many rental companies available near the terminal and they offer free shuttles so you don't have to worry about being dropped off or picked up in heavy traffic by taxi drivers.
  • Book your rental car at Reno Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Reno Airport

  • What amenities are available at the Reno Airport car rental center?

    The car rental center at Reno Airport has a number of amenities to offer. For starters, there are a variety of car rental companies to choose from within just a few dozen yards of the terminal so you will be able to find something at your price point. Furthermore, they provide free shuttles for airport drop-offs and pick-ups, which is especially convenient if you don't have any friends or family locally to pick you up.

  • What documents are needed for car rentals at Reno Airport?

    Drivers must have a valid driver's license, be at least 25 years of age and provide proof of insurance to complete the rental process. Renters are responsible for any damages to the car and thus insurance is mandatory. This requirement is not negotiable, and in case there are any damages, you will be billed at the airport. Some companies require a credit card as a deposit and if you don't return the car on time, they will charge your account. This card will be held as a deposit and is refunded once the car has been brought back.

  • How long can you rent a car at Reno Airport?

    You are able to rent cars for up to 30 days in advance but after that, they must process at least one day's worth of rental fees before being allowed on airport property. Most car rental companies at Reno Airport offer unlimited mileage packages. This option is best if you are planning on driving a lot and need the convenience of being able to return your car anywhere. For more convenience, car rental companies at Reno Airport also offer music systems and a selection of movies that you may take out with you.

The staff from the nice guy at the counter, the girl in the booth and the friendly return guy were all fantastic. The car itself had dings all over it. It was missing paint on the driver's door. It didn't have any floor mats. Carpet was ripped or slashed on the passenger side and messed up on the driver's side as well. We were running late for a dinner appointment when we arrived or I would've never drove off in that vehicle. On the plus side, it did get us from point A to point B.

Terrible experience. Will never use them again. We reserved a vehicle 6 months prior to travel. When we got there they only had a minivan for us. We had 6 people and a baby we were going into the mountains to ski and they could only provide a front wheel drive minivan when we ordered a luxury SUV with four wheel drive. I went over to enterprise and they took care of me

I reserved a car from Hertz through your site on August 10, for a pickup at RNO on Sept. 22. I prepaid a portion of the charge ($171.20), leaving a balance ($54.62) due at pickup. Instead, was charged $110.64 at the Hertz desk, and told my only recourse was to call their Customer Relations/Billing phone number to resolve the issue. That proved useless, as they would not honor the stated price on my contract. I believe that $56.02has been stolen from me, and I will never rent from Hertz again. Further, if Kayak is unable to get the overcharge reversed by Hertz, I will never use your service again, and I have been a loyal customer for over 20 years. The price quoted should be the price charged. Period.

Gold member. Rented two months ahead of time for a conference. Upon arrival, I went to check in on app, which displayed “unavailable”. Wait at counter to check in, lady tells me car is ready in pick up area. Go to pick up, nobody knows what I’m taking about and don’t care to find out. Walk back to counter, tell lady my problem. She tells me to go back and wait. 40 mins later, my rental shows up covered in dirty water and all the LiDAR sensors are giving warnings. At that point I was late, so I had to take it. Customer service is awful, I doubt I’ll be back.

Terrible experience. Waited two hours. Had to settle for a down grade of what we originally selected just to avoid waiting longer. The wait was due to lack of cars. Customer service reps were nice but there wasn’t enough of them for Volume of costumers

Pros:

Better mileage than expected

Cons:

Pick up: disaster. Despite having RESERVED a mini-van class car, there was none available when I arrived. What's the point of a reservation? Instead they "upgraded" me to a CRV, which has half the storage space. Extremely unhappy because I planned to move across the country in the larger car, not a tiny CRV.

Terrible, to the extent that I'm never going to use budget again. Our flight was delayed by 12 hours, so the pickup was later then we specified (through no fault of ours). However, Budget charged us ~$700 MORE than the quote we had received. I only noticed this after signing the agreement. When I pointed this out, they said that happens when we're late, and we get the default charge. I pressed them further to honor the agreement and they printed out a separate receipt, writing in the original quote (was actually about $150 more than the original quote, but I was too tired to argue)....with an additional $200 'deposit' that we get back upon returning the car. We returned the car, and still haven't received the $200 deposit back.

Pickup and dropoff were very convenient and pleasant. I don't remember the employees at pickup but Sue at drop-off was great. After discussing our needs for going into the mountains and requiring 4 wheel drive it was easy to adjust the booking in person to get the vehicle which would work best for us for the trip. Very thankful for that flexibility.

The wait for the car was 30 minutes. There were three employees working at one point and one employee disappeared into the office never to be seen again. Keys to the car were given to me and we had to walk to the garage and find our car. The car was covered in pollen and dirt on the outside. Inside was okay. No walk through and I had to take pictures of various dings, scratches, and a crack in the windshield for my benefit if Avis tries to come at me for this damage.
