10.0 Excellent14 Jun 2021
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Drop-off was a breeze.A staff person called me a few hours after picking up the car saying they needed to verify the mileage and it may need to come back and swapped for a different car due to a possible need for an oil change. Tried calling back, but they were closed, and didn’t open until 9:00am the next day. The main Enterprise toll free number we tried had hours that started at 7:00am, but we would have been already long gone. When I picked up the car, the staff said to “call us anytime if you need anything” but the branch’s restrictive hours and the toll free number’s lack of 24-hour service prevents this. In the end, the staff person said don’t worry about it, there’s typically a 1500 mile buffer built in. All turned out well, but we were stressed after getting that initial voicemail because there was no way we could go all the way back to swap out a car, nor divert our course to go to a different Enterprise to do it, as we were on strict time constraints.

Pick up was simple and complete, barring the EZ pass that did not work.The EZ pass toll system that I was given did not work. Therefore, I had to pay tolls with my personal card, absorbing additional charges, for something that I rented specifically to work.

I was upgraded to a new, larger car. I am usually more interested in fuel efficiency, but it was a good small efficient SUV/sport wagon. When I returned the car within a day + 1 hour, I was charge for this instead of 2 days, I really appreciate that.I messed up and booked my reservation to the downtown location instead of the airport. I think getting a more obvious notification of this would be really helpful. The drop-off fee for going from one city to another was a little frustrating, but not too large.

9.6 Excellent24 Jul 2017
Very easy. Check-in at the kiosk was quick and pickup of the car was uneventful. The car was nothing special but served its purpose. Dropoff was also quick and easy. All in all a very good experience.While the car was in good shape, it showed some signs of having a rough life, which I guess is no surprise. There were scratches in the door opening where it looked like someone had to pry the door open in the past to unlock it, and something (soft drink I bet) had been spilled on the center console that wasn't totally cleaned up, as the parking brake handle was a bit sticky. I cleaned that up. None of that had much of an effect on the experience, but might be worth pointing out.
10.0 Excellent12 Jun 2017
Will use Enterprise againPick-up and drop-off procedures very simple and vehicle was in excellent condition (almost new).I believe the charges for an additional driver are excessive and simply designed to add additional profit to the renting company.

Easy pick up and drop off but not thorough. The car had paint damage all over and has a severe wobble in the rear when at highway speed. The touch screen for the infotainment system is also damaged at the top by water or something so it was going haywire the entire time.

We paid in advance for a “full size SUV”. This was refused at the counter. A full size car was delivered. I was told I would have to pay $60/day extra to get the vehicle I had reserved. We were told that the office would be open until after the last plane landed. The adjacent car rental shop said that “never happens with Hertz or Dollar.” We had to spend the night in the baggage department of the airport since we could not drive to our reserved hotel an hour and a half away.

The car had 40K plus miles on it and I heard some noises. We drove it to Louisville from Milwaukee and I prayed nothing would happen which it didn't. The woman at pick up was very friendly and helpful and the man at drop off reminded me to leave the key, which I would have forgotten in my purse. Very good experience!

I had to wait in line (standing the whole time) TWO AND A HALF HOURS to pick up my car. The Budget staff were great and were clearly doing their best in a bad situation, but there weren’t enough people to move things along quickly. Other rental companies in the same location did not have this problem, so it was clear something was wrong with Budget.

I spent an hour and 15 minutes in line with Budget at MKE. Two ladies working the desk were much more interested in laughing and joking with one another than with getting people through. Average Renata time at the counter: 12 minutes (literally had the time to time a few). Then, when I do get up there, again after more than an hour with my family sitting k. The floor waiting my $49 Kayak rental is now $96. She literally said “that’s what they gave you - were really busy, so you want it or not? I had no choice, it was late and we needed to get out of there. Total fail for Kayak and Budget both, won’t do it again. What’s the point if the rate changes at the counter?

I reserved a transit van and when I got to the airport it was not available. I had plans to transport 12 guys up to Whistling Straits and we had to rent another car. Totally unacceptable. They gave me a discount of $250 but that didn't come close to what is cost to rent another car. Very disappointed.
1.9 Horrible12 Aug 2021
hour long wait at the counter. no one outside or inside to ask a question. Only reason i did not switch providers is that they did not have any cars. you need more than 2 people working with a line of 50 people long. On top of it, processing a customer at your system takes at least 5 minutes. Why does it take so long? return was easy enough.... i guess that is because no one was there. i know that things are bad in the industry right now but being short handed on a Friday afternoon was a BIG issue.

Booked the reservation in April 2021. 3 days before, informed by phone, they have absolutely no similar passenger count holding vehicles but promised of an alternative. Day of pick up, without permission, reservation canceled. All cars sold out in the area, no potential whatsoever for alternatives. Spent 20 min on hold the first time, was hung up on. Took 25 min, no email sent to learn about canceled reservation the 2nd call. Moral of story is that budget does not give a HOOT about reservations made months ago. No foresight into reservations that were made months earlier due to needed passenger count. No need to confirm a cancelation with the consumer. No remorse, empathy or customer service attempt to honor MONTHS old reservation. Reserve at your own risk.

I most important thing you could have done better is to have an ice/snow scraper in the car. It amazed me that a car rented in Wisconsin would not have one. I had to brush/ scrape 2 inches of snow and ice using my hands and a credit card. Ridiculous! The outside of the car was filthy with dirt.

NoneOur reservation for a speciality van was at noon. We arrived at the location at 12:07 and the location was closed. The sign on the door and the website both said the location was open until 2:00. Avis was very unhelpful, insisting that it was my fault for “missing my appointment.” I told them that there were several steps they could have taken to make the situation a more customer service friendly experience, when the rental office saw they had a specialized reservation at noon, and they closed early, they should have had the courtesy to call us to alert us that our reservation was at closing time. The evening before, I called Avis to confirm the reservation, at that point the agent should have mentioned that the location closes at the time of my reservation. Neither steps were taken. I ended up having to drive to an airport location, and pick up a much smaller car, they didn’t have my specialty van in stock. I now have to pay $400 in shipping to get the remaining items shipped that was intended to go into the van. Avis customer service has been unhelpful, and maintains this is “my fault.” Buyer beware.

We ended up having to cancel our reservation and lose 28.00 because the person at the counter ran my credit card and locked them up for 24 hours. I will never choose thrifty again. I ended up using national and they were so much nicer and more accommodating.The person at the counter should of informed us about the credit issue. She did the same thing with the client before and after us. I also prepayed my rental and she added another 450.00 to the rental tab. Over 700.00 to rent a car for 7 days. National is a much better car rental company. I will never recommend thrifty.

I had to take a taxi from the airport hertz center to the downtown hert, center. some one had put pick up as downtown Milwaukee. now who in their right mind after getting off a plane retrieving their luggage would Walston the gertz counter to stand in line and be told my car was waiting downtown.milwaukee. I did not know there even was a hertz center downtown!!!! your customer service representative behind the counter was less than helpful. actually very rude. would not call downtown to see if there was a car there or try to strengthen this mess out. I was told to leave. I had to take a taxi downtown Milwaukee which cost me an additional 36.88. now who is going to give that back to me as a credit on my bill or issue a check to me. i.gave a Gmail receipt from taxi driver. oh and the car that was waiting for me, quess what there was no car. I sat an additional 2 hours in the office downtown until a car was provided. ask me if I will ever use kayak or hertz again. to make matters worst I am a 100 percent disabled female veteran. I received no help with.my bag, or opening door etcetera. the car was dirty. I do nit care they put a yellow clean sticker in it. I had 3 different people on their cell phones take pictures and I had to stop and put pressure in the tires as all 4 were low. SOMEBODY OWES ME BUG TIME

Now that we know exactly where this Hertz is located, we will use it again. Easy to book online, quick counter service, convenient to leave my car there, easy key drop-off after hours. Great price. The car we received was great and very clean.Letting us know ahead of pickup that the office is located adjacent to the parking garage and what corner the office is on. It took a couple drives around the block to finally see the Hertz sign on the side of the parking garage - we didn't see it on the first drive as it was immediately after we turned and we weren't looking to our immediate right. We were a little confused about which parking garage ticket we use and when (it was early-ish morning for both me and the agent).

Car hire excess insurance in Milwaukee

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 Milwaukee 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 Milwaukee.

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 Milwaukee car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Milwaukee

  • The city of Milwaukee, nestled on the edge of Lake Michigan, is the perfect place to rent a car, as it is easy to navigate with its wide roads and sparse traffic. Avoid the discomfort of public transportation by renting a car, which you can drive all over the city while visiting its famous sights, including the Miller Brewery, or Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers. A hire car is also a great option for those looking to explore other areas around Lake Michigan, or even cross the state border for a day trip to Chicago, which is only 90 miles south of Milwaukee.
  • All the major car hire agencies can be found at General Mitchell International Airport (MKE), located just six miles south of downtown Milwaukee. The car hire counters are situated on the first floor of the main airport parking garage, right next to the baggage claim area. Most companies are open from early in the morning (6-7 a.m.) until late in the evening (11 p.m. to 12 a.m.).
  • Driving in Milwaukee is fairly easy, as the city features wide, uncongested roads, and a good highway infrastructure system. Drivers should know numbered streets run from north to south, while named streets run from east to west. Turning right on a red signal is usually allowed unless a sign states otherwise. While it's best to drive around in the summer months, those wishing to avoid big crowds should know that the summer season sees plenty of lakeside festivals.
  • Milwaukee traffic generally flows nicely throughout the day, with the city having one of the shortest commute times in the country, but congestion can still happen during rush hours. Avoid driving during peak times; traffic headed into the city gets worse between 7 and 8:30 a.m., and then again between 4 to 5:30 p.m. as people leave the downtown area. The main congestion points are the Marquette Interchange, the Stadium Interchange, and the Zoo Interchange.

  • Single travelers who don't require much space for passengers and luggage and are visiting in the summer should opt for a small convertible to enjoy the Lake Michigan views and the nice weather. Families embarking on a road trip across the area might prefer a small van or a sedan, which will give everyone plenty of space and comfort.

  • The speed limit is usually 25 miles per hour in the city (with the exception of certain residential areas that demand a lower limit, in which case the speed limit signs will be posted), 35 mph in city limits or uncongested towns, 45 mph on rustic roads, and 65 mph on freeways or expressways.

  • The average petrol prices in Milwaukee are approximately $2.22 per gallon. Lower prices can get as low as $1.99 per gallon. If you're visiting in the summer months when there are more events and hence more tourists in the area, try to fill up the tank early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid waiting in big lines at petrol stations.

  • The closer you get to downtown, the more regulated street parking is. Metered spaces have different time limits depending on their locations, and prices range between $0.50 and $1.50 per hour. Saturdays are free in some areas downtown, and street parking is free on Sundays and public holidays everywhere. You can apply for Temporary Overnight Parking Permission, which will let you park your car for free overnight on any Milwaukee street.
