I would hardly call the car we rented an SUV…. And they charged us an extra $24.99/day for the “SUV” upgrade. Total cost for four days was iced $600 to rent a car that barely went over 55 mph. Such a racket.
5.9 Okay6 Jul 2021
The wait at pickup was much longer than it had to be - there was only 1 person at the counter and one or two people directing people to cars, and the inventory/lot management was inadequate. Alamo didn't have the reserved vehicle (minivan) and had to substitute a full-size SUV, which took 20+ minutes to find - there was a wait at the counter (despite a light crowd) and at the lot (where one poor guy was running all over the lot trying to find cars to match with customers).

Friendly service at the ick-up location; VERY pleased that when I called the 1-800 number to modify my reservation, I actually talked to a real person in under 5 minutes. Overall, Alamo has provided the best rental service that I have experienced in a long time. Will definitely use them again.The Kansas City location required additional photo IDs (fraud prevention). This didn't affect me, but others may need to be aware of the requirement (which was not advertised in advance).

Alamo was closed when we arrived in Kansas City. The rental car company to the right next counter over had to handle the paperwork. I had already booked and paid online for an easy pick up. They made us jump through hoops while my 90 year old parents had to wait for us.

The staff was nice, but there were not enough so wait times were longI got a car that was dirty (inside and out) and that WAS NOT FULL OF GAS, but was down almost a quarter tank. When I pointed this out, I just got a shrug. Bet if I returned it down a quarter tank the reaction would be different

They let me close any vehicle in the line so i chose a mini van. It was perfect for my needs, clean and new. Return was super quick at the MCI Airport. Never had to wait at all for the shuttle bus. Shuttle was about 5 min from the airport.

You chose an average car, you get an average car. Site lures you with the appearance of low prices available and then there aren't any. And on top of that there are fees that aren't revealed until you pick the car up and again when you drop it off. Like a +200.00 supposedly refundable damage deposit even though you paid for the add on insurance already. And an additional +100.00 for other stuff that was supposed to have been paid for when you paid the final fee at pick up. We won't recommend or use either Kayak or Dollar again

It was my first time renting a car, and nothing was explained to me. The process was confusing, I was not told how to choose a car and to only choose a car that had a sticker seal on the door. I had to figure it out myself. The Kansas City location at the airport did not document pre-existing damage to the car I chose and the Houston location tried to make me pay for the damage even though I had my own pictures to prove it. The Houston location also made me pay extra to detail the car due to THREE dog hairs on the floor that transferred from my luggage. The Houston staff member that checked me out was unfriendly, pushy and unprofessional. I will never, I repeat never, use Hertz again. I will be warning everyone I know about my experience.

The vehicle was well maintained and clean. The attendant was pleasant; however, the seemingly obligatory up-sell pitch was there particularly in regards to the damage waiver. Damage waivers started at $49 and went up to $69 depending on the level. I purchased a damage waiver from a competitor a week earlier and paid $11. Overall the vehicle was good, easily accessed and turned in and customer service was good.

Car was fine. Clean except the gum wrappers in the passenger door. Return was super fast and easy.Even after calling Hertz to confirm our reservation and pickup location, we were told upon arrival that our rental was booked at an off-site location (not airport). The desk staff scrambled to find us a car, but it all could have been avoided 3 days earlier when the reservation was confirmed.

They don't bother informing you on web site or when you book that a major credit card is needed to be able to rent a car including a credit check, no cash or debit card just major credit cards so if you dont have one they will turn you away. Worst experience ever and I'll never go back to AVIS ever, I'll continue to rent from Enterprise because they rented me a truck without major credit card or a reservation on same day AVIS turned me down and almost ruined the family vacation.

Showed up after a 30 minute delayed flight, no one at the counter to assist. Actually have a clerk at the counter that can assist during later hours. Or, if you're going to partner with another rental agency and defer your customers to their desk, make sure that desk is staffed. Avis did and was able to match your rate and earn my future business.

Staff was very friendly. Car was in great shape and had numerous bells and whistles that made the trip very enjoyable.Two issues - The pick up location needs better marking to locate the cars. Better signage and directions. Other issue is the deposit. Not disclosed on initial paperwork. A $200 hold on my credit card put serious financial strain on an otherwise simple process. What does the $200 signify? Not enough to cover any significant costs. So why have it? It just leaves the consumer with $200 less available credit for a trip.

The counter was closed prior to the scheduled closing time. We were unable to pick up our rental under this reservation and had to check nearby counters that were still open to try to find an available rental. The entire fiasco ended up costing us more than double the original reservation. How will we receive compensation for the unacceptable incompetence?You could have remained open until your scheduled closing time or at least until our scheduled pickup. We called ahead once the plane was on the ground and no one ever picked up despite it being 15 minutes prior to our reservation.

I was also told I needed to provide a utility bill, a pay stub, and pay a $500 deposit! What!??!?!?! Thank goodness for Avis who gave me a REAL rental car!

Car hire excess insurance in Kansas City

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 Kansas City 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 Kansas City.

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 Kansas City car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Kansas City

  • Kansas City, like most cities in the U.S., depends highly on car transportation. There simply is no more efficient or better way to get around town, whether you plan on catching a Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium or you are just going out to eat.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car for your time in Kansas City? Travelers with flights landing at Kansas City International Airport can take the hire car shuttle from the airport terminals to the hire car center, where they will find numerous hire car companies.
  • Though Kansas City is not that far north, it still experiences some pretty harsh winters. Snow and ice can quickly blanket roads, and drivers should be prepared for wintery weather if they visit in the colder months of the year. Drivers not confident in their ability to handle the snow should make sure to drive extra carefully and to check the weather regularly so they aren’t caught out in a storm.
  • Nobody likes to be stuck in rush hour and, with a bit of preparation, nobody has to be. In Kansas City the morning rush hour goes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and then picks back up again in the afternoon at around 3:30 p.m. and goes until 7:00 p.m. throughout much of the metropolitan area. Some of the streets to avoid during rush hour include I-35, the southern portion of I-435 and I-70. The worst streets are all highways primarily because of the high volume of commuters going into and out of the city for work.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Kansas City for £29 or less
  • Book your car hire in Kansas City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Kansas City are around -48% cheaper than other car types, on average

Finding parking is also a non-issue for even the largest of vehicles as the city’s parking spaces are large and plentiful.

  • Kansas City sees a range of speed limits from 30 mph to 55 mph on its roads, with speed limits largely determined by the size of the road and whether or not it is in a residential area. Outside of the city, speed limits on highways and interstates are usually 70 mph with the occasional increase to 75 mph.

  • Drivers will be happy to hear that Kansas City has some of the cheapest petrol in the U.S.A. On average, drivers can expect to pay a mere $2.00 per gallon, which is about as cheap as it gets in the U.S.

  • If you are in the central downtown area, parking garages are probably the most convenient option. The parking garages are plentiful and easy to find all over the city and are often quite cheap as well. If you are in the peripheral areas though, you may find streetside parking to be more convenient, as spots are readily available there.
