Top tips for renting a car at State College University Park airport

  • University Park Airport is a small airport serving State College in central Pennsylvania. Car rental at State College University Park Airport has a variety of options for travelers. This includes economy and luxury rentals, and everything in-between. You can also request special features by contacting the rental agent after booking through KAYAK. Things like GPS, 4x4, and hybrid vehicles may not come standard but could be available upon request.
  • State College is home to The Pennsylvania State College, or Penn State, home of the Nittany Lions. The airport rental area is about 15-20min by car from the college campus. If you're trying to rent a car in person you're probably going to be in luck, as wait times are usually non-existent at this small airport. Be aware that major annual school activities may cause traffic to swell at the airport and on the roads as students, parents, staff, and faculty come and go, so plan your rental accordingly.
  • If you're flying into town and plan on moving into a new place, consider renting a vehicle to help with the move. Car rental at State College University Park Airport has booking options for trucks and SUVs that could prove helpful moving larger items like furniture. Book through KAYAK ahead of time to compare your options. While we can't find people to help you move your stuff, we can help find you a sweet deal on a rental. Try buying them pizza, that usually helps.
  • Winters in State College can be rough so consider things like snow tires, chains, or 4WD when renting a vehicle during the colder months of the year. While many students leave for the holidays, others that live in nearby places like Pittsburgh or Philadelphia may want to rent a car and drive somewhere closer for a visit. It's best to be prepared for dangerous road conditions when renting a vehicle in a place known for snow like the state of Pennsylvania.
  • Book your rental car at State College University Park airport at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Customer service was awesome especially at pick up in state college. I’ve only ever rented from enterprise before this and the customer service and the way they made it so easy makes me only want to use Avis in the future.

When you get the gas option where they fill up the car, you are required to pay for a full take, even though you only use half or less. A rip off.

Pros:

Car was ready for pick up in State College and drop off was easy in Kentucky

Cons:

The mileage must have been logged incorrectly at the pick up location because at drop off, it said we had driven over 5,000 miles! Good think we got unlimited miles with the rental!

I completed the reservation, and the rental place called a couple days later to tell me there won’t be a car available for me. All the other rental agencies in town were booked, so I had to upend my wife’s schedule so I could borrow her car.

Cons:

The car was not ready when we showed up, and the car was a smaller size than what we reserved. It was a one-way rental, and I was told at my destination that they had never seen a contract like the one I had been issued. It took 24 hours to resolve it.

The vehicle was not in road-ready condition as I had to fill up the tires with air twice and had to have the oil checked as a warning light was on from the start.
