Top tips for hiring a car at Asheville Regional airport

  • By booking a car rental at Asheville Regional Airport, you will be provided with a convenient and reliable mode of transportation for traveling throughout the city. While Asheville does have its own local bus system, driving is still typically one of the best ways to get to your destination, as it will allow you to stick to your own schedule.

  • Depending on what your personal preferences are, there are a few different models for you to choose from for your car rental at Asheville Regional Airport.

As you are picking up your car, make sure to remember where your rental company specifically stores its vehicles.
  • Asheville is a popular city amongst both tourists and business travelers, so it is not uncommon for its roads to be busy. If you want to make sure that you don’t end up in a traffic jam, try to pick up and return your car rental at Asheville Regional Airport around rush hour, which generally occurs between the hours of 7 and 9 am and 5.30 and 7.30 pm.

Gave me an EV to travel in the mountains. Representative told me it would be no issue as there was a charging cable in the car to charge it where we were staying. She offered to downgrade a car but pay extra, because she said there was a cord to charge it we decided to give it a try. Turned out there was no charging cable or adapter and was unable to use the car in fear of having no battery to get back to the airport and did not want to spend half a day driving back to swap it out or find and sit at a charger.

Pick- up and drop-off are in the terminal. The person on duty was very efficient and wait time was nominal. The car could have been cleaner. Inside of the windows hasn't been cleaned, ever? Very cloudy. Right front tire need air and the message that it was time for an oil change greeted me daily. The car was a hybrid Pacifica and drove very well, with gas mileage approaching 40 mpg! All and all a good experience.

Vehicle was dirty inside and outside when I picked it up. I received a text message three days after I turned the vehicle in stating that my vehicle had not been returned and it was over due. I handed the keys to one of the employees when I returned on the due date.

I waited for over an hour in line to receive the rental car. There were approximately 15 people in front of me in line and o my one person working at the counter. It was so slow. Mini vans and sports cars (for an up charge) were all that was available for the majority of the line. I was able to receive a Dodge Charger - so huge! The woman who waited on me was nice it was such a long wait for the number of people.

The car was not cleaned when we picked it up. The back seat was full of dog hair and there was mud on the floor. We did not realize it until we had passengers sit in the back seat several days later. When I told the agent at drop off that the car wasn’t cleaned I was told I may be charged for cleaning the car since I didn’t take pictures of the problem before we left the airport.

Pros:

The staff at the airport was uncooperative and when I asked if I could change the drop off location the person at the counter made a point to be short and was not helpful. I also asked about adding another driver and he seemed annoyed at my questions. Because of this I canceled my reservation and booked at the counter next door. He told me that I would still be charged for the day if I switched in a manner that was intended to scare me than in making any effort to be helpful. but once I made the other reservation he was able to refund my money.

Cons:

Better customer service at the counter.

Not having an electric vehicle. It was very stressful finding charge stations and the time needed to complete a charge. We had one weekend to enjoy a wedding. 13 hours of it was sitting at a charge stations. There are very few level 3 stations - so HOURS are needed at a level 2.

Pros:

Friendly front desk lady.

Cons:

Someone was supposed to meet us at the car, he didn't and we found him wondering around the rental garage. Car was dirty inside and out, AIR CONDITIONING didn't work and only found that out the next day when it was 95f outside. Literally miserable driving around in it. No directions to drop off in Fayetteville, NC. No pre inspection so i filmed everything to make sure i wasnt blamed for how dirty the car was, even AFTER i paid to run it through a car wash. You think covid times would ensure a clean inside but finger prints everywhere, on the screen, dirt in the back seat, just gross.

Pros:

Pickup in Fletcher was simply a disaster. No customer service, 60 minutes wait with only 3 other customers in front of us. Still Not sure if it was such poor lack of experience or inability to perform...? To top it of, attendant brings a car over for ‘easier’ access and brings the wrong car.

Cons:

Providing experienced employees or ones who are capable of performing simple tasks... Very very poor pickup experience.

Cons:

Whatever you do, make sure you get a PAPER contract when you pick up your car. They said we didn't need one in Asheville and they just emailed it to us, but once we got to Jacksonville, Hertz acted like we should have had one and they treated us as if we were the problem with it not being there.
