KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Abilene

  • If you often need to go outside, car rentals in Abilene are the most time- and money-efficient option. Numerous lines of the public transportation system, such as the Metro bus, do not operate on holidays, weekends, or during the weekend. A further reason why hiring a vehicle is the superior mode of transportation is because some routes only run during the weekdays when people are commuting to and from work. Renting a vehicle allows you to see Abilene and its surrounding natural environment more swiftly and in more comfort than walking or using public transit would provide.
  • With a nice set of wheels, you can visit the vibrant city of Abilene, Texas, do your shopping, and dine out at the Beehive restaurant, which is only 3 minutes away. Affordable cars from the cheap car rentals in Abilene give you the chance to view the attractive great art destination with some of the best museums and galleries. Drive to Clay Sports about 8.1 miles away.
  • You can access car rentals in Abilene at Abilene (ABI) Airport. The airport features a vehicle rental facility operated by Avis, Budget, and Hertz, so you should have no problem hiring a car there. Consequently, renting a car at this airport is a reasonable option to consider. In order to hire a vehicle from any of these firms, you must be at least 18 years old. A valid driver's license and a credit card in good standing are additional prerequisites for this employment at the time of application. If you are not a citizen of the United States or the United Kingdom, you must also possess an International Driver's Permit.
  • Collect your car once you land at the Abilene Airport. The airport houses different car rental companies that best suit your budget. It has several car rental agencies on-site with various vehicles that you may prefer depending on your specific needs. Always remember to inquire about your preferred agency's opening hours. You can find cheap car rentals in Abilene through Hertz.
  • You can comfortably use car rentals in Abilene and have an easy time. Abilene's roads are maintained in high shape, and the city's drivers are typically courteous.

If the license is not in English,you will need to obtain a translation in your home country. The most common form of translation is an International Driver's Permit.
  • Abilene car rentals make it simple to go about the surrounding area, but drivers should be aware of a few obstacles, the most significant of which are the city's congested and congested streets. Because of the narrow width of the roads, there are fewer automobiles that can use them at the same time.

Pros:

Nothing. I lost $65 dollars because I assumed I could use my debit card as a credit card like I can everywhere else.

Cons:

I came to pick up the car after paying online and having everything setup. I could not get the car because I dont have a credit card and the guy wouldn't take my debit card, eventhough all he needed it for was a $200 hold. Also no refund because the cancellation fee is the same as car price.

In Abilene, I walked out to the car after signing to find a larger than normal door ding. Had to walk all the way back in to question attendant who walked back out to check it out and the made a hand written note on the contract that no one else could read. Luckily no problem in Dallas. Can't the computer be inputted with info like this and the customer be informed at the desk?

I liked the unlimited miles makes a difference and will definitely get me to rent again if it stays around.

The overall extension process and maybe price should be considered to be locked in at whatever rate you booked it at to begin with if extended. Just an idea.

Pros:

Pickup was great. Drop off was backed up and looked really understaffed for the volume of cars being returned.

Cons:

Drop off area better managed. We had to walk a long way to the shuttle bus terminal with all our suitcases in tow. Usually the drop is much closer to the building.

Pros:

I booked a rental car on Kayak with Enterprise but there were no cars available upon my arrival. When I asked to make sure that i was not charged, the Enterprise representative was unable to confirm one way or the other as whether i was charged. I tried calling Kayak but they were closed.

Cons:

Don't accept a booking if there are not rental cars available. 24 hour customer service should be available with Kayak.
