8.0 Excellent6 Jul 2020
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.
10.0 Excellent4 Jul 2020

9.6 Excellent15 Sep 2019
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off, Great staffCons: Worst part was the cars seats weren't the most comfortable but that isn't their fault
2.8 Mediocre4 Sep 2019
Pros: Not muchCons: I added two child car seats to my reservation and somehow that made the cost go from $250 to $350. The car seats were crummy and they made me install them myself. The front desk was understaffed so it took me a long time to get my car. The minivan seat didn't go back far enough so I was crammed in.

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.

4.4 Okay11 Oct 2020
Pros: Easy processCons: The first rental I picked up started overheating 20 minutes after leaving the lot, I had to return the car after being told to go to a different enterprise to swap the car, no one had one available so I still had to return to the original site to swap out the car. Very time consuming.

Pros: All staff in Indy airport were excellent, friendly and very helpful.
5.6 Okay25 Oct 2020
Pros: Pick up was fine.Cons: my return near Loveland, Ohio was a place that afternoon was closed. Was not noted on my ticket. We had to drop off in another town, this was on a Saturday. When staff got there that next Monday they said it was returned on Monday. I called customer service (was end of September) and they have still not refunded my money. Today is Oct. 24th. The last time I talked to Customer service they said they were understaffed ! Time of a lot more calls !!!
6.4 Good18 Oct 2020
Cons: I was NOT notified that you were taking a 200 dollar deposit when I booked with Kayak. When will I get that returned to me?
2.0 Mediocre30 Sep 2020
Pros: Nothing.Cons: Ten days in advance, I paid and reserved an SUV for noon on 9/26/2020. When I arrived at 11:55am, I was told they had no vehicles available. I was told to come back later (2 pm) and they MIGHT have a car available then. Poor customer service. I had to change my plans and wait to pick up a vehicle from another company the next day as well as pay for another rental. I was told to call the Hertz customer service line to get a refund. I called and the representative told me they had no cars available at any of their locations. I requested a refund, I was told I would be refunded and emailed within an hour of the receipt showing the refund. That never happened. I am now disputing the charges with my credit card company.
2.8 Mediocre27 Sep 2020
Cons: We reserved a car about 3 hours before we needed it (emergency situation) and when we arrived they told us there were no cars!? If there are not cars, do not allow people to make reservations thinking they have a car! We would have gone somewhere else. Awful.
4.0 Okay5 Sep 2020
Pros: I booked a car the previous night and when I showed up they said they booked my car to someone else. I understand it was it was a surge weekend but a service like this should inform the customer so they are not left stranded. Not inclined to come back.Cons: Inform the customer if you are unable to fulfill a rental agreement.
2.0 Mediocre20 Oct 2019
Cons: Scheduled a car far in advance to take my family on vacation. The store closed at 5:30, and we received a voicemail at 6 stating that the didn’t have a car. Thinking that they just didn’t have my rental car type, I started to leave for Hertz and called. Sure enough they “had no cars” when I called on my way for my reservation. They “refunded” my money but I ended up spending $150 more and had to scramble to find a car for a family vacation. What a poor way to do business. Save your time and $ and book with a different company. Very disappointing!!
8.0 Excellent23 Sep 2019
Pros: Picking up the car at the airport location was very easy. Outside of them trying to find a car for me, pretty seamlessCons: Car wasn't that clean and smelled like smok
6.0 Good14 Aug 2019
Pros: Took a long time to get picked up. Girl at the counter kept getting told my reservation of a truck was negative. Took several different call’s back and forth Drop off was excellent.Cons: Better communication between front desk and parking garage where the cars are kept.

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.
6.8 Good11 Jul 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpfulCons: Car wash not washed or vacuumed prior to my pick up. It had bird poop on hood, windshield, and other places.
5.2 Okay8 Apr 2019
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.
7.2 Good25 Mar 2019
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 !
2.0 Mediocre26 Feb 2019
Cons: The woman at the counter told me I could not rent the car because her computer told her I had a rental that was still open with Budget. I called Budet they said no I didn’t, they spoke with her but to no avail, so I was unable to rent. The entire experience was terrible.
8.0 Excellent11 Dec 2018
Decent for pricePros: Great value for the price paid. It was less to rent a car than take an Uber ! Shuttle service to the airport was quick and easyCons: Long wait time in the building to check in and out. Need more reps.

Pros: How friendly the employees were and how easy the check in and out process was.
5.6 Okay8 Jul 2020
Pros: The Hyundai Tucson was very clean and comfortableCons: My flight was delayed and the Thrifty rental counter closed before I arrived. No local or manager number to call. I was stranded at the airport late at night. I had to use alternate transportation that night and return to the airport to pick up the rental car the next morning. Then, Thrifty refused to modify my rental contract for the adjusted period of time. So I was stranded without a car and paid for a day I did not use. I filed a complaint but no acknowledgement or resolution.

5.2 Okay1 Dec 2019
Pros: very slow due to understaffing. Took 10-12 minutes to process each customer and there was only one sales person.Cons: Car provided was a VW. Very poor driver ergonomics for a rental car. Door lock mechanism which also served as gas door opener was damaged and missing. Could NOT refill gasoline for car. Will REFUSE to rent another VW again.

Pros: Drop off was easy. Staff very friendly.

9.2 Excellent20 Nov 2018
Pros: Professional, knowledgeable staff.Cons: Didn’t have car I ordered. Wanted a economy car, had to take full size. I prefer a smaller car- more fun to drive and better fuel mileage

Indianapolis AirportPros: The first agent we dealt with was very nice and tried to help us when we unexcptably found out about a $350 charge that would occur.Cons: The manager was rude and didn’t want to help out at all. Was like here is where it says you could get charged up to $350. kept saying it was a deposit but it was an authorization fee given by the credit card company. He didn’t want to help us at all and seemed put out when we asked about it. Then when we were leaving with the car the agent at the checkout booth lied to us about gas prices just to get us to buy gas from them. I understand meeting a quota but there was no need to lie about gas prices. She informed us that gas around this area is all over $3 and they had the lowest priced gas at $2.62. We declined saying we wouldn’t driving that much and we found gas for $2.45 less than 5 miles away where we were staying.

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.

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.

Cons: They cancelled 3 days before
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.

Wrong vehicleCons: Reservation for a minivan turned into an SUV. The staff said that the 6 people + luggage would fit just fine. As we suspected, they did not. Our long planned one-way week-long road trip was ruined by Avis.
7.6 Good5 Jul 2017
Not available when expectedPros: When we were finally able to get the vehicle we had originally booked, it was clean, beautiful and more than we could hope for. We booked a premium SUV-Suburban and it came equipped with a dual DVD system, leather, trailer hitch, etc and was perfect for our trip with a family of 7 to Denver for a softball tournament.Cons: We were supposed to pick the vehicle up at 12. Upon arrival, they didn't have it and tried to give us a mini-van. Keep in mind, we are picking this up at an airport. He had someone drop him off, waited in line for 30 minutes and they didn't have the vehicle. later that day, they called and said they weren't sure they would get it in, and offered us a Tahoe. We needed the extra space in the back, and this isn't what we had booked. We declined, and called all other rental places to see if they happened to have a premium SUV available-there were none. Finally-they called around 4:30pm to let us know that it was available. If it weren't for this incident in getting the car, we would have said excellent. As far as the desk help-they couldn't have cared less that we were inconvenienced.

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.

Pros: The staff at the Indianapolis airport was very good.Cons: I needed to return my car a day early. Once I made the reservation, I couldn't change it. Kayak sent me to Sixt; Sixt sent me back to Kayak. Eventually I found out the cost to amend the reservation was almost as much a day's rental. Next time I will go directly to another rental car company.

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.

  • Book your car hire in Indianapolis at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • 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.
