HYA Hertz were fine and helpful.PVD dropoff HERTZ was disinterested and didn't leave the booth. Perhaps afraid of catching COVID from customers? Prefer to have car checked by a liver person, to be sure NO damage, as you're holding $200 of my funds for just this reason. Don't hold the money if you cannot be bothered to look at the vehicle when it is returned. No damages from me, but I am disrespected and penalized for others' drivers damages when you cannot even be bothered to check -- Lazy personnel!

carrentals.com has issuesHertz was great, very friendly and helpful.carrentals.com who co-booked the rental with Kayak, did not provide Hertz with my contact information. This caused confusion when they tried to call me to tell me the location I had booked the car was closed and to head to a different location. I could not be reached so I showed up at the closed location and had to then catch a cab across town to the open location.

You get what they gotCar was clean.Reserved and charged for a full sized car. Told I was getting a full size car at the counter. The only cars that had were compact. We had to sit with bags on our laps for 10 hours because they wouldn’t fit in the trunk or at our feet. Needed to travel that day. Have to see if I can get my overcharge back. Don’t trust that you will get anything other than what they have on the 6 car lot.

Hertz was great, vehicle not so muchEverything but the vehicle itself. Not a knock against Hertz. Just surprised a 2017 model was how inefficient and uncomfortable as it was.Surprisingly, the Yaris is not very efficient. You can only go 300 mi before needing to fill up. For a small car, I would expect a little better, especially with the "Eco" feature, whatever that means. Comfortability of the seats is real low. Definitely bring something for lower back support because this does not have it. You will be Hutton for certain within an hour of driving. This is just a review of the vehicle. Hertz was great!

Inconsiderate, inconvenient, unprofessionalThe car was fine, once I got oneI booked my car from the Hertz location in town (Hyannis) but when I arrived the location was closed and locked and there was no answer on their phone line. When I finally reached someone at their airport location they told me they didn't have my phone number and had no way of reaching me so they just closed the shop? I was shocked. My phone number was included in my booking and they had returned a call to my wife the day before the booking as well. I had to rent a car from the airport location, and return it there as well which was inconvenient and burned a lot of time during a busy time for me. I understand that sometimes things don't go according to plan, but this was not handled well at all.

We returned the car via the after-hours drop-off - earlier than our rental was due. After checking our credit card statement we noticed that we had been charged an extra $100+ dollars. When I called to inquire, they had charged us for three extra days. Since there were no communications after the drop-off, we never would have known unless we checked the credit card statement. It felt underhanded and deceitful; I would not trust them again.

Good overall experience! Would do again.I liked the Mazda! Very easy pick up and drop off.While the attendant at our specific pick up point gave detailed directions, the cars were in a very difficult spot to find and it took my way too long. They were not parked in a marked area and it was a busy port and confusing.

According to my father, who dropped off since I had to catch a flight, Budget is trying to charge me SIX TIMES the rate I accepted through Kayak. I will have to spend hours today trying to rectify.

Rental was for a commercial van and it was a bait and switch situation - instead of the van the only available vehicle was a Penske box truck. Vehicle had more than 100,000 miles, reeked of smoke and felt dangerous to drive.

Can't rent at Enterprise with a Debit cardThey gave me a ride to HertzI had made my reservation using a debit card, but when I arrived to pick up my car, they said that there policy didn't allow me to rent a car with that card. Luckily, other places were still open so I could go get a car from Hertz - which was a great experience.

I have rented with Enterprise before and chose Alamo (not knowing they were together). Bad experience with Enterprise last time even though I have been a customer for many many years. When I picked up the car, nobody was there. I waited 15-20 mins. I was told where the car was, which was a good walk, and walked to the car myself and drove away. No inspection of the vehicle. The rental we received was too small even though we rented a Full SUV, 7 passenger-they gave us a Nissan Armada, which was a little dirty, had the new sticker still on part of the roof which we figured out because of the noise it was making. We lost the radio/navigation for awhile, then came back on. We had five of us plus luggage and lets just say the children (16-18) were not very happy. I believe I will be renting from a whole other company when I rent again. Last year when I rented from Enterprise, Plymouth location, they were not very accommodating and the time before that I had to trade that rental in for another one.

incredibly painless process from pick up to return.Same old, same old. You get a cost estimate for the rental car, go to another site, and the cost of the car at the first site has doubled. Why is this considered good business?

Customer service was very good overall.While the vehicle was clearly marked as a non smoking vehicle it was very obvious that one of the previous renters in fact smoked in the vehicle. I was hopeful the smell would dissipate but it never did over the 4 days we rented.

The staff was very friendly and one reason I would come back. However, she was overwhelmed with customers. She was one person handling at least three customers while i was there. She maintained a friendly disposition though. In the middle of an epidemic, you need to be flexible and patient. The checkin process took a little while but given the environment, the staff handled it very well.See above

That the woman at the next counter was able to get me a vehicle despite reserving with Alamo, and there being no one at the Alamo counter.I reserved online, and was emailed instructions. I arrived at the airport location to pick up the vehicle only to find that there was nobody at the desk, and a sign up saying go to another location. The woman at the next counter said it was happening to a lot of people, and because I did not pre-pay, she was able to get me a vehicle from her company.

Staff was friendly but not helpful. Called at least 4 times during business hrs one day with no answer. Called second day & was put on hold 10 minutes as my phone battery ran out. Finally hung up. Returned car around 7:30am with no one at desk. Waited around 5 or 10 minutes & no one showed up.CONTINUED FROM ABOVE QUESTION. Received a call back several hrs after I left car saying the front bumper was misaligned. Something that was not apparent to me when I dropped the car off. If the attendant had been there during business hrs we could have reviewed the car together. His word/mine

No Dollar counter at designated location in reservation!There was no Dollar counter (and thus available car) at the designated pick up location (Hyannis airport). Supposedly there was an error in accepting reservations before the counter was officially opened. And because it was the end of the July 4 weekend, there weren't any available cars on the entire cape. We proceeded to having to taxi, bus, and taxi with our entire family to Providence, RI (2 hrs trip) to rent a car and our entire trip took 12 hours- where about 4 hours of those were on account of the misleading reservation that you provided. It was an awful day and I do not plan on using Dollar again due to this experience.

It wasn’t an issue with Avis, they were helpful. The problem was with Kayak as I requested a rental on an island and they rerouted me to another island without notice. I arrived to the island I thought I had booked on and arrived to no rental reservation. Kayak should understand the area they are rerouting to or not get involved at all. Unfortunately Avis will receive a bad review for Kayak’s lack of accountability and knowledge.

Great in person, TERRIBLE ON PHONEIn person everyone as Avis was nice and helpful. They attended us quickly.We tried calling multiple times and had to wait 30+ min for them to find our reservation, and had both the customer service rep and his manager argue with us rather than explain the price difference when dropping off the car in a different location. Thy were unapologetic and talked to me as if I was stupid. Talking on the phone with Avis was a MISERABLE experience.

Car hire excess insurance in Hyannis

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Hyannis car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Hyannis.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Hyannis car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Hyannis

  • Car rentals in Hyannis give you flexibility and freedom of movement. Unlike with public transport, you don’t have to follow a specific schedule and route. For example, Sealine public buses operate between Wood Hole and Provincetown, meaning you have to be traveling that route at a particular time to use their buses. Car rentals in Hyannis help you move across the city, explore Cape Cod, Barnstable, and other surrounding neighborhoods any time you want.
  • Car Rentals in Hyannis is a well-established business with rental services in Barnstable Municipal Airport, while others are located within walking distance from the airport. Car rental companies such as Thrifty, Enterprise, Avis, among others, will deliver a car of your choice to the airport at the agreed time. Additionally, Hyannis city car rental companies such as National, among others, are located within the terminal of Barnstable Municipal Airport, next to the baggage claim area. Budget’s office is located at the main terminal with a pick-up station situated outside of the terminal. Dollar is situated along Barnstable road, 0.2 miles away from the airport, within walking distance.
  • Roads in and out of Hyannis city center are quite busy with motorists. Be careful, especially when following, driving next to or on adjacent lanes to loaded tractor-trailers and trucks towing boats. If it’s winter or the rainy season, be mindful and extra cautious when driving on icy roads and in the mornings when there is low visibility due to fog and heavy downpour. Watch out for icy roads in Northeastern Mass and along Route 128 and Route 3.
  • When exploring the vibrant Hyannis, try to avoid rush hour. There is minimal traffic from Sundays to Thursdays. The roads are generally busy on Saturday mornings and afternoons. To avoid getting stuck in traffic, travel either earlier or later in the day at hours before 8am or after 2pm respectively. The roads are also busy on Fridays, however, you can smoothly run your errands before 2pm and after 9pm.
  • Book your car hire in Hyannis at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Hyannis are around 14% cheaper than other car types, on average
