Pros: The pick-up area was severely understaffed, but the guys who were there were extra courteous and worked hard to help me quickly.Cons: It seemed the guy at the front desk didn't know what kind of van I would be offered. I don't know why the actual rental make/model has to be a mystery right up to the point of getting the keys. Also, the pick-up area was way understaffed.

2.0 Mediocre29 May 2021
Cons: Explain in the website that a credit card is required even tho it said debit cards
6.0 Good17 May 2021
Pros: car was ok. Location service was unusual. First time asked to provide insurance proof(did not have). Settled for name and coverages. Also first time that I had to agree to a $200 advance deposit. Why?Cons: Check in was ok, although not very professional. Return was a big disappointment. Placed was closed(Sunday) however nobody told us they would be closed. Took a while to read a sign that said to drop keys on side of building. Walked around until we found drop. Had planned to have staff order us a cab, but no one there. search online for a taxi took four phone calls. Next day (Monday) I get a call from Jackie that they did not find the keys. I told her I had dropped them as instructed and she said they were not in the drop. She said she would look for them. It is now 3pm and I have not heard back.
10.0 Excellent2 Feb. 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off were both super easy.Cons: I only wish the location was closer to my house. No big deal, though!
10.0 Excellent11 Jan. 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly. They didn't have what I requested so I got a free upgrade. Return was seamless and quick.Cons: The pick-up explanation felt a bit rushed. He was throwing a lot of add-ons and numbers at me and I didn't really get a chance to process everything. The insurance I bought before pick-up was not through Enterprise. Theirs is different. That needs to made more clear.
2.0 Mediocre3 Dec. 2020
Cons: The check oil light came on in the very expensive premium SUV I rented. I had to exit and stop at a gas station to check the oil. The oil was not even touching the full tube. It took two quarts of oil at $10 to make it right. Not a big deal, but a minor inconvenience. I thought Enterprise would simply reimburse me the $20 and make it right - they didn’t! A very pretty move... We were told by the represent that the only the store manager could make that call and he would call us to discuss. They never did. Terrible customer service a real shame to lose a customer over $20...
4.4 Okay23 Nov. 2020
Cons: Enterprise did not have reservation in their system even though reservation showed confirmed through kyak
3.6 Mediocre5 Nov. 2020
Pros: Pick up was ridiculous then got stuck in a compact car even though we was okay with upgrading. Car was very dirty on the outside. Drop of was way easier of course. And the insurance don't waste your time buying it on kayak because they tell you it doesn't actually cover anything. Just ridiculousCons: Communication of details
10.0 Excellent27 Oct. 2020
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. Drop off was very fast and friendly.
2.8 Mediocre26 Oct. 2020
Cons: Pick up took forever. Car had hardly any gas in it when I picked it up. When I asked if I could drop off at airport you said you’d charge me $100 drop fee. I offered to pay $50 as a compromise but you said no way. Will not ever use enterprise again.
10.0 Excellent15 Oct. 2020

6.0 Good19 Apr. 2021
Cons: The car smelled like smoke and I went back to the counter to exchange it but they had a long line and I couldnt wait. It game me a headache every time I drove it. I know Budget has a fine for smoking should be a deterrent but make sure that the Budget employees who clean and check-in/out the car aren’t making it smell like smoke. A headache is miserable and was not appreciated especially for the steep price. Other than the smell, the car was very clean as fas as vacuuming, etc.

Cons: The kiosk screwed up my reservation which ends up with my being seriously overcharged for the vehicle. Would like to speak to somebody over the phone about this matter. Please reply with a name and contact information of someone that I can call. Thank you, Allan Thompson
6.0 Good22 Apr. 2021
Pros: Drop off was fine and the car itself was clean and ready to go.Cons: When I arrived to get the car they said I had already picked it up but they had actually given the car I rented to someone else and it took longer than it should have to get me on my way. Also, they tried to charge me a deposit after I left and never discussed this with me.
2.0 Mediocre22 Apr. 2021
Cons: I arrived to the airport 11:30pm with a reservation, and NO ONE was present at the booth or at the parking lot. I waited until almost midnight and had to talk to other company and rent a car there. Sixt was open and they made an excellent overtime work to get me a car. Once on my car I tried to call Hertz and of course no body picked up the phone, but put me on hokd saying "we currently have many calls, please hold".

4.0 Okay18 Jul. 2019
Communication is keyPros: The customer service reps for the pick-up and return locations were very kind and helpful.Cons: Payless allowed me to reserve a car but didn't tell me that their shuttle wasn't working. I waited for 30 minutes before attempting to get a new car rental with Avis and noticed the sign regarding Payless customers speaking with Avis reps for car rental info. Then they didn't have the car I wanted and I had to drive a Jeep Wrangler in a storm. I will not rent from Payless again.

Pros: The person at the Washington Street pick up location was very nice and helpful. We also really appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of the shuttle driver.Cons: We were traveling as a family of four with a young child, an infant, and lots of gear. They sent us to pick up the car at a location far from the airport, but when we got there, the staff couldn’t understand why we had been sent there and told us we should have gotten the car at the airport.
4.0 Okay26 Mar. 2019
Pros: Pick up was a mess...got the car a little early and they charged us an entire extra day...after we called to make sure that wasnt the case before we picked it up. And. We even dropped it back off early too.

Cons: Arrived at 10pm. No one at desk. Drag our luggage to garage. Guy out there says go back to Payless desk. No one there. Finally a stranger tells us Payless is a subsidiary of Avis- no one at Avis desk. Then find out it is alao A subsidiary of Dollar so they eventually helped us- took an hour !

4.4 Okay22 Aug. 2020
Cons: Avis tried to sell me on almost $1K worth of car insurance despite purchasing with Allianz via Kayak. They said they didn't see I had any coverage - I had an email saying otherwise. Extremely confusing and terrifying not understanding if I was covered or not. There was also only 1 person and a giant line started forming (it was 4pm...seem like a high traffic time so felt odd), so I didn't feel like I could even take a moment to better understand what I was paying for and waiving because I was with the ONLY person available. I was also sent to the wrong space number. And I wasn't told how to open the trunk of the car, which sounds stupid, but this one was hidden under one of the backlights (??? horrible design) so I stood at the car for 20 minutes pushing random areas of the trunk like a moron trying to open it. This is the 2nd terrible experience I've had with both Avis and Kayak. Last time ever - others beware. Check out other rental dealers
8.0 Excellent30 Mar. 2020
Pros: Pick up and drop off was easy.Cons: Cleanliness of car upon pick up.
8.0 Excellent5 Jan. 2020
Pros: The car itself was a wonderful ride.Cons: The pick up was a nightmare and it was all over me using a debit card. The first person I spoke to refused to help me because I didn't have a Major credit card even though it stated online you can use a debit card with a return flight. Finally, after an hour a nice lady helped me and got me out the door with my car.
5.2 Okay20 Jul. 2019
Pros: The car was great but they didn’t give it to me at my quoted price. I had to call customer service and am still trying to fix it.Cons: Horrible pickup experience!Waited an hour past my reso for the ONE worker to clean a car for the renter ahead of me, rent it to them, check in another group who just wanted to extend their rent, then go back to the garage &clean/vacuum the car I would be renting! Again, she was the ONLY PESON THERE!
5.2 Okay7 May 2018
Dirty van!Pros: The Indianapolis airport rental car experience is always easy. No bus, no shuttle, no hassle. It's arguably the best big airport rental car experience in the country.Cons: We rented an Avis 12-person passenger van. It was filthy and had two major dents on the outside. I was embarrassed to put my guests in this van and was told I had no alternative van to choose from. For the price ($500+) for three days, I was extremely disappointed. Avis is better than this.

3.6 Mediocre11 Oct. 2016
Pros: The price was reasonableCons: You get what you pay for. The van did not have a TV, power doors, the rear windows did not let down, and no rear back up camera. The staff was also unkind.
8.0 Excellent4 Sep. 2016
Rental experiencePros: The friendly service.Cons: Wasn't told the office was closing early the day of my return. The time of pickup should've been the time I got possession of the van, which made ! my return 15 minutes early.
10.0 Excellent22 Aug. 2016
Pros: Nice people, easy process. We were renting a van for a road trip and they let us our car there for a week while we took our trip in the rental. It's close to where the airport used to be, not so much to where the airport is now, but we weren't flying into town so that didn't bother us any.
10.0 Excellent13 Jun. 2016
Pros: I liked the price, unlimited mileage, easy access to location near airportCons: I would have preferred a 15 passenger van with room for luggage behind the last row of seats, the back seat.
7.2 Good8 Jun. 2016
customer service lies!!Cons: The employee at pick up was told that I was denying the insurance because I bought it online when I paid for the rental. I don't know if it was a mistake or not but I had to pay more at pick up and she said that it was a deposit and that it would be returned to my account upon drop off. When I dropped off the van I was told that it was for insurance and it would not be returned. I am still trying to get my money back for that through there 1-800 number.
10.0 Excellent4 Apr. 2016

2.0 Mediocre24 Mar. 2016

Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful at pick up. The vehicle was clean and ran very well.Cons: There was no one at the drop off point at the airport at 6:00 p.m. on a Sunday. There was no communication given to us as what we should do with the vehicle. We found a Dropbox and put the keys in but that was it! That process could definitely be improved via text or email or some other form of communication

10.0 Excellent5 Jun. 2021
Cons: Not sure if my rental was a Mid-size. Nissan Kick feels a little small for mid-size and that’s what I paid for. Otherwise great experience.
8.0 Excellent12 Apr. 2021
Pros: No staff at the counter when we arrived, a card said to use the kiosk and no kiosk to be seen. When we brought the car back there was no staff around and this was at 4:30 PM.Cons: Get anybody to be at your place of business or close down. And by the way we noticed that there was a big plug in the right rear tire. That is very dangerous in my opinion, and no spare along with no staff.
2.0 Mediocre9 Apr. 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly getting the rental and something happened to their computer. Claimed my reservation was flagged and they wouldn’t be able to rent to me for the night.Cons: I rent from sixt regularly. There was no code or reason for the reservation being flagged. The agent couldn’t explain why.
6.0 Good10 Feb. 2021
Pros: No issues with staff friendlinessCons: They didn’t do the walk around the vehicle when I took it out and since I was in a hurry with lots of luggage, I forgot to do it. They just handed me the keys at the desk and pointed where the car is. But they walked around when I brought it back and claimed that a pebble off the street has chipped the paint off the hood.
8.0 Excellent30 Nov. 2020
Pros: Our flight was changed to a later flight and SIXT was to be closed at that time. When I called ahead the agent went out of her way to set up a rental with Alamo, who would be available. She was so diligent, that I did not mind for the disruption. They earn big points for follow through in making sure we were taken care of.Cons: We would have liked to have rented from SIXT...
2.8 Mediocre1 Nov. 2020
Pros: There was no one at the desk. Walked out to the garage instead of the person helping me they sent me back inside. Moreover I didn’t get the size car I requested and the car has low tire pressure and need and oil change. Because we kept getting notifications on the dash.
7.6 Good16 Oct. 2020
Cons: The drop off experience is unlike any other… No one greets you to check you back in. So that was a little weird. We weren’t sure what we were supposed to do.

Top tips for hiring a car in Indianapolis

  • Make the most out of your trip to Indiana’s capital and rent a car upon your arrival in Indianapolis. Explore the many attractions conveniently on your own four wheels, such as the Zoo, Lilly Recreation Park, or the Lucas Oil Stadium to enjoy a game. A hire car can give travelers the flexibility they need to explore the city and the surroundings in their own time and pace.
  • Indianapolis Airport is over 12 miles from the city center, so renting a car upon landing is the best option to start your visit quickly and free of hassle. The airports sports its own Transportation Center, in which eight hire companies offer vehicles in all shapes and sizes. Head to the first floor of the terminal garage to find your perfect car and take the I-70 W to get to the city center in less than 20 minutes.
  • Indianapolis is also known as the “Crossroads of America” since various interstates like the I-465, I-65, I-70, or I-865 run through the city and connect it with the surrounding areas. At first, the many exits can be confusing, so checking the route and traffic conditions before entering Indianapolis is advised. When entering roundabouts, remain in the outer lane, as it can be hard to reach the exit once driving in the inner lane. Also, cars inside the roundabout have the right of way, so don’t stop to let other cars in.
  • Rush hour usually hits Indianapolis between 7-9 am in the morning and 5-7 pm in the evening. As Indianapolis spans quite a big area, it can take more than half an hour to get from A to B without traffic, so planning at least one hour ahead is a good idea. Construction sites are also a common sight in Indianapolis and checking traffic obstructions beforehand helps navigate easier through the city.

  • As winter can bring lots of snow to Indianapolis, a 4-wheel-drive car is the best option for a trip to the city. An SUV or minivan will provide great traction and enough space, but is still compact enough to cruise through the city without causing too many problems when it comes to parking and navigating narrow lanes. Bear in mind that, with plowing in winter, streets can become narrower as the snow piles up on both sides.

  • Unless posted otherwise, general regulations permit 15 mph in alleys, 25 mph in school zones, and 30 mph in residential areas. 60 mph is permitted on interstate highways in suburban areas and up to 70 mph is allowed on rural interstate highways. Especially in the winter, it is crucial to adapt the speed to the current weather conditions.

  • The average price for petrol per gallon is around $2.30 in Indianapolis, but petrol stations like Costco or Murphy USA offer rates as low as $2.20. When visiting Indianapolis in the cold season, make sure the tank is at least half full during the night; otherwise, the petrol line is more likely to freeze up.

  • As long as there is no big event like the Indianapolis 500 on, parking in the city is not too difficult when compared to other big cities. On-street parking is metered in most places, but after 9 pm and on Sundays it is free. Alternatively, there are city garages and parking lots available, such as the City Park or Express Park Garage.
