Hire car
Pros: The rates were the cheapest and customer care was very helpful. Will definitely be using again. We gratefully appreciated the 10% discount for military personnel.
Cons: The hire car had no windscreen wash and was low on engine coolant. Knowing the car journey was a lot of miles I already planned ahead and it was a good job I had my own as I had a few days in norfolk.

Another great Alamo rental in Norfolk
Pros: They never fail to be the fastest, lowest priced.. And often if I can't add my discount to my rental, they simply offer to upgrade me... And I'd rather have that, as I rent full size anyways. And I have seen the rental car return guy there at the airport.. He always does a great job. Next time I'm going to get his name, as he is way to professional and happy and thorough Before the sun comes up! Fast service, great cars.. Low price!!!

Budget really means subpar customer service
Pros: - Great gas mileage - Bluetooth - Relatively cheap rental
Cons: - Interior was stained - Inside windows were streaky upon pickup which made it difficult to see through, especially when the sun was in front of me - Exterior of car was dirty upon pickup - No one came outside to do a vehicle check with me to make sure all prior scrapes/dents/stains were documented - After hours drop-off was slightly confusing

Good deal.
Pros: Booked through Kayak and got a better deal. Budget/Avis staff at the Norfolk airport were great. Didn't wait long. Easy check in process. Drop off was super early, 5:30 am. Attendant was great and a short walk to the terminal.

No cars when we checked in
Cons: No cars available when we checked in and they didn't know when the car would be available, so we were stranded in the airport while we waited at least an hour. We returned the car full an they still charged us for gas. We still have to call and get them to remove that charge.

BEWARE
Pros: The staff was professional and the agency opened earlier than others.
Cons: The class of car reserved was not available and the practice appears to be a downgrade and the hope the consumer is unaware. Little league for an airport location and I'd actively avoid this location provided other options were available. The upgrade I ended up paying extra for was a smoke smelling vehicle with 60k miles but not bad on gas.

Never with Dollar ever again
Pros: Quick to get the car and no one was in line
Cons: Car was very dirty. Crumbs everywhere and stained seats. I called the customer service rep to let them know I was running 2 hours later he said its 2.50 each hour your late to return which I was fine with. I get my bill this morning they charged me for a full extra day and added fees totaling to $67 more than what I was supposed to pay. Never with Dollar again.

Overcharged and unhelpful
Cons: We were overcharged for an additional driver. When I reached out to them to point it out, it took forever for them to get back to me and they wouldn't refund my money. They also couldn't even correctly identify where I rented the car. It just goes to show how sloppy they are and how little they care about their customers. They made a mistake and I'm out almost $100 for it and they won't do anything about it. It might be that their system is so bad that they can't even keep track of their mistakes to be able to fix them. But, to sum up: terrible customer service, overcharged by a lot, will never rent from them again.

Liked the Versa
Pros: The agents at both pickup and dropoff were good. Thought I had reserved a compact, I would rate the Versa as a sub but it ran just fine, drove it over 300 miles the first day, all good. Very predictable handling, for sure easy to park, etc.
Cons: Long wait at pickup, one customer blocked one of the two agents for an extended period. There were some tape marks on the car (probably to keep the doors closed in shipping) but it was a long walk back into the terminal and might have to wait online again

You guys suck
Pros: Nothing
Cons: You guys lied about charges and overcharged me for not being old enough even though I am old enough to rent a car from you guys. You wouldn't even give me my entire refund. I'm never renting from you guys again. Did I mention you guys suck? If not, you do!!!

Pros: The pick up and drop off were quick. I really liked the in car gps system. The car rental is connected to the airport. You do not have to take a shuttle to/from the rental area.
Cons: The car was dirty on the front interior passenger side when I received it. Like something had been spilled on the window and door. It was gross. You have to mark any blemishes on the vehicle without a rep present. I took pics in the event there was a problem. The car drove a little rough.

Not impressed w online estimating, or sneaky invoi
Pros: Staff was courteous. Transfer shuttle staff was absolutely excellent
Cons: Needed and selected good sized car for 4 people w luggage. Norfolk VA presented smaller car not meeting the class size. I asked for one meeting the class size. They re-wrote entire reservation. Kayak estimate for rental period was ballpark correct at approx. $141. But Payless layered on $100. in extras, NOT including declined insurance options, self-paid tolls, or declined prepay gas options. Net bill was about $87.00 dollars over online kayak estimate, over 60% higher. This was a disappointing experience, having done this online to get a reasonably good expectation of cost.

Pros: I like the price, I like the car, it was very comfortable. When I returned the car the staff was very helpful and patient.
Cons: I didn't like when I picked up the car initially. The clerk was not personable. she just told me to initial certain places without explaining what I was initialling , it added extra fees to the bill I had already reserved it online and declined the things she had me initialling. I was charged two holding fees of $ 200 totaling $400 which caused a return check and a fee charged to my account of $29. I was very disappointed with the service when I pick the car up the staff was not concerned when I called her back to let her know what had happened. Had an OH WELL, attitude.

Car Rental for Wedding
Pros: When I told AVIS my car rental was for my wedding that occurred on the pick up day, I was upgraded from a Lincoln to a brand new Mercedes which pleased me. The Mercedes was beautiful. My replacement vehicle was nice and spacious (after a roadside exchange due to a flat tire on the first car)
Cons: The fact that my rental (the Mercedes) caught a flat within 20minutes of picking the vehicle up (the vehicle was originally picked up at 10:48am) And then there was no spare available within the vehicle. I requested a roadside exchange but it didn't arrive until almost 5pm. And the lack of operable vehicle caused a really HUGE inconvenience for my wedding and single handily ruined my wedding transportation plan. On top of that, on the return day I was told by the company that I had to be charged for two day opposed to the one day that I rented, the replacement vehicle (considered good it didn't come till almost 5pm.

Pros: There should be more staff on hand to assist customers. Those that were there appeared to be trying help the increasing line of people. The representative who helped me appeared to be trying to do his best under difficult circumstances.
Cons: I did not get the car I booked and the one I got had not been washed. After going through the car wash I could see quite a few dings. The inside has an odor and there is/was sand or dirt on the carpet and paperwork from previous customers. It is also out of windshield wiper fluid.

Cons: It took over an hour to pick up the vehicle. The class of cars I chose showed a newer Kia and I got a much older Mitsubishi something or other. And the alignment was off.

Charges
Cons: Having to pay extra for a car that came from N.Y. and returning it in N.J. Don't make sense for me.

Cons: I wasn't able to rent from your company because I do t have a credit card. I have a Debit card but was told that wouldn't work. I was however allowed to make the reservation and have to adjust last minute. I also was charged for trip insurance and I would like that amount refunded

Pros: Having a kiosk with people in the garage to check me in, though it wasn't clear whom to see.
Cons: Confusing drop-off, not well or clearly indicated. And this review label says the drop-off was in Norfolk, but it was actually at the airport in Newport News, VA.

GOOD
Pros: Everything was easy from renting to the pick up/drop of the vehicle. I believe I got a very good deal for a small SUV. The vehicle was clean. It was roomy enough for my family and great on gas.
Cons: Nothing stands out that I did not like.

Lacking customer service
Pros: The car was clean and handled well.
Cons: There was no one at the thrifty counter when I walked up, but a sign told me to go to another counter. I reserved a "special" - which was a compact or larger - hoping I would have some choice. The guy at the counter didn't talk to me at all and basically just flung keys to me. When I went to actually get the car, no one was there. The car showed some pretty bad scratches but there was no one to show or tell, so I had to document them on my phone (just in case). I guess the car was a compact, but it was so small I would have said it was an economy.

The rudest customer service at pick up
Pros: The drop off customer service was great! The car rental rate was great for a quick weekend rental.
Cons: The lady that I picked up from should be fired and find a job in something that does not interact with people. I am a business owner and would be ashamed to have her be the face of my company. I tend to pay more attention than my fiance, but when he complained about her attitude to me...I know it was terrible. No smile, no hello, short rude, no eye contact. Not even a thank you. The cars start and go was very jerky, like the transmission was slipping.

Ran out of cars
Cons: We arrived to find out they were out of cars. They had us wait for 30 minutes (telling us it would be a 10 minute wait) and then finally I asked if they had ANY cars available. They had a compact. We had paid for a full size. They didn't give us any money off the rental, only added a second driver. I will not return to Thrifty, Dollar, or Hertz after this experience (all affiliates).

Top tips for hiring a car in Norfolk

  • Explore the coastal city of Virginia conveniently on your own four wheels and make the most out of your trip to Norfolk with a hire car. Whether discovering the coastline, finding all kinds of different plants in the Botanical Garden, or even going all the way to Virginia Beach, a hire car puts travelers within easy distance of just about everything. Virginia Beach is not even 20 miles from the city and can be reached by car in about 20 minutes.
  • Pick up a hire car when landing at Norfolk International Airport to get to your next destinations quickly and stress-free. Find the car hire center in the arrivals terminal on level 1 and choose from renowned agencies like Hertz, National, or Alamo. The airport is 7 miles from Norfolk center and can be reached in under 20 minutes via the Norview Avenue and Tidewater Drive.
  • Reckless driving is considered a severe offense in Norfolk and fines can be very high. Also, as it is considered a criminal offense, it may impact your driver’s license or even show up in your record. Adhering to the speeding limits and driving defensively is therefore pivotal. Make sure to familiarize yourself with speed restrictions on your routes and look out for speed limit signs. Especially on the weekends, traffic law enforcement is executed meticulously and reckless drivers will be pulled over without hesitation.
  • Winters in Virginia can be harsh and bring lots of snow. As lovely as that is for strolling through the city, especially in the Christmas season, it means you must prepare your vehicle and adapt your driving style accordingly. Make sure the hire car has winter tires and perhaps even snow chains in the trunk. Check the weather forecast and traffic before leaving, and adapt your speed to weather and road conditions when necessary.
