KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Fort Wayne

  • Using public transport has its advantages, but a car rental in Fort Wayne is a more convenient choice since it allows you to explore Fort Wayne regions that are inaccessible otherwise. It also grants you more flexibility because you don’t have to worry about when, or where to get public transport. Car rentals ensure your comfort and ease of movement around Fort Wayne.
  • Most Fort Wayne car rentals in the city have pick-up and drop-off points at or near the Fort Wayne Airport, making it easy to drive into the city and to a hotel or other areas within the region. Car rental companies, such as Budget, are located within the airport premises, which makes it convenient and quick to pick up the rental car of your choice. Other car rental companies are located within walking distance from the airport. These companies include Hertz, located near Olympic Village, Dollar, Thrifty, Avis, National, and Alamo, among many others.
  • Like most big cities with an increased number of vehicles on the road at any particular time, exercising extreme caution cannot be stressed enough, especially where normal traffic flow has been disrupted. For instance, drive carefully when nearing construction projects, interchange modifications, and county concrete pavement replacement that tends to lower or obscure visibility. When driving out of the city, remember to set your GPS before starting your journey.
  • In Fort Wayne, rush hour is around 5pm to 6pm on weekdays. It is recommended to drive before or after 5pm and 6pm respectively. Even so, the rush hour is relatively smooth, with less clogging up of cars compared to other cities. Remember to be aware and follow traffic regulations as you navigate Fort Wayne’s streets.
  • Book your car hire in Fort Wayne at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Fort Wayne are around 10% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Full-size hire cars in Fort Wayne are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Fort Wayne

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Fort Wayne?

    Popular vehicles for cruising the city roads are mid-sized compact vehicles, cross overs, and SUVs. Since Fort Wayne’s roads are well maintained, and the city’s topography is relatively flat, you can choose a 2-wheel drive rental car with a small fuel-efficient engine. If you are planning on off-roading, such as going to the off-road trails around Fort Wayne, Indiana, or visiting Cedar Creek Canyon, search for 4x4s or off-road cars for rent in Fort Wayne through KAYAK.

  • What’s the speed limit in Fort Wayne?

    The overall speed limit is 25 to 30mph in urban districts. However, this may change depending on the region you are in. For instance, school zones’ speed limit is usually between 20mph to 25mph during school hours. On highways on the interstate’s national system, for example, the speed limit is 70mph. Also, outside urbanized areas, the speed limit is 70mph. After picking up your car at one of the Fort Wayne car rentals, it is important to adhere to the speed limits as there are traffic cameras in the intersections. Also, when driving in or out of Downtown Fort Wayne, pay close attention to the SafePace digital radar speed signs, which are designed to slow motorists down.

  • Where are the best places to park in Fort Wayne?

    Fort Wayne has many parking lots where parking charges range from about $1 to $4 per hour. The parking lots include PNC Bank Garage, which charges about $2 every 2h.

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was nice, and the process of picking up and dropping off was super-fast and easy.

Cons:

I got a hot deal car, so my expectations were extremely low, and still the car did not live up. I got an ugly blue Chevy Spark. The car was TINY, both front to back and side to side - I've been in go-carts with more room. I'm not even 6' tall, and I barely fit. My brother and I literally couldn't fit in this car together at the same time. This was bad enough, but what I paid per day was nearly twice what I've paid for a Mercedes or BMW in the past. Sadly this was still the best experience I've had renting a car in Ft. Wayne. Somehow compacts have moved up to midsized status (e.g. Rav4), and prices have still gone up. This whole mess has made me less likely to rent a car, less likely to fly, less likely to travel as a whole.

Cons:

When we picked up the car it was only half full of gas. We also we're not able to rent car seats for our twin two year olds. The counter person was pleasant but less than helpful. When we returned the car the counter person was awesome. I wish car seat rental options were available when reserving the vehicle.

Pros:

Everyone I spoke to was helpful. They provided electronic copies of everything, so it saves paper and the environment, plus convenient. They had vehicle I requested and quickly got me in it when we arrived at the location. Drop off after trip was simple too.

Cons:

I scheduled a pick up at least a day in advance and waited over an hour for the ride to appear. I rented a minivan (reserved in January and got it in August) and they asked if I would switch down because they were short on vans that day. The van wasn't totally clean. Nor was I offered prepaid fuel.

The car was very dirty. It smelled of cigarette smoke. The left rear turn signals and brake lights didn't work. I had already filled it up with 17.7 gallons ($60) of fuel because the gas tank was almost empty. They said just below half but it was just below 1/4. I returned it immediately because I didn't feel safe driving the 900 miles through Indianapolis, Louisville and Nashville without brake lights and turn signals. We returned it but the office was already closed for the weekend. I received nothing for my rental fee and gas expenditure. Was very disappointed that they would rent a car in such poor condition.

We have credit card, forgot to bring new one in wallet, we had the expired one. This is not stated on their website anywhere, since when is cash or Debit/ Visa not good? It isn't like they cannot obtain $ instantly, nor bill for more. Very frustrating. will never rent from them again !
