Top tips for hiring a car at Cedar Rapids airport

  • If you are visiting Eastern Iowa, you will need a rental car. Although public transportation is available, it is not the best means for exploring this region. A rental car gives you the power to venture far beyond the pavement and routes that the public bus won’t access. Moreover, you will be free to travel whenever and for however long, unlike with the strict bus schedules.
  • If you don’t know which car to choose from, you have two options from the Cedar Rapids Airport car rental providers. The first is picking the best-rated cars, which are compact and intermediate vehicles at this location. Option B is going with the supplier’s choice, which is a good way of saving money, as the supplier’s choice vehicles are usually much cheaper.
  • If you are physically challenged, consider booking your Cedar Rapids Airport car rental online and picking it up at the airport. You can have your rental car adapted to your needs by the providers at Cedar Rapids Airport (CID), but they need prior notice, hence the booking online. Spinner knobs, swivel seats, hand controls, panoramic mirrors, and pedal extenders are some features that can be added to rental cars for the physically challenged.
  • If you wish to travel across state borders, you can do so in car rentals from Cedar Rapids Airport. You will be free to travel all over the US with Cedar Rapids Airport car rentals. You can even cross into neighboring Canada and Mexico with these vehicles, and you only need to inform your provider to get the necessary insurance for driving in these countries.
  • Book your car hire at Cedar Rapids airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Cons:

I booked this reservation about a week before I arrived. Found out about 4 days before that I would be unable to keep the reservation. I could not cancel online and had to wait for 20 minutes to talk to a rep who tried to charge me $100 cancellation fee!! Ridiculous. Won't use Hertz again. I then told her it was covid related and she waived the $100. Guess a lie is what is required!!!!

Smelled like pigs. The Dodge van was the biggest piece of junk. Shook like a wooden rollercoaster, bounced like a trampoline, no USB plugs for phones. The radio controls where horrible. I would never buy one, or rent one.

Pros:

I had a big problem in the beginning ... but Sophia (manager in Cedar Rapids) was absolute amazing. She fixed the problem immediately and made me fell much better. I have rented from enterprise many times and she fixed the issue. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her.

Cons:

Make sure you have plenty of staff in the evening to help with customers. Once again Sophia made this a great experience and I hope she gets a pat on the back on how much I appreciate her efforts to fix the problem. She restored my faith in enterprise by going above and beyond the call of duty.

Cons:

I called to inquire as to what I should do if I could not make it to the scheduled return time for my rental. The woman, who spoke poor English, took it upon herself to charge my card for an additional day without my permission. This caused my acct to be overdrawn. When I tried to explain this she repeatedly told me she did not charge my card however I called my bank and they confirmed the charge. When I called Alamo back they said there was nothing they could do but refund my money which would take 3-7days and they had nothing to say about the overdraft fee. All this for what was just supposed to be an inquiry.

Pros:

Moved my fiancé from Iowa to Boston. We got a brand-new Dodge Caravan with fold-flat seats, SiriusXM radio, and the flex-fuel capability which was a major money-saver. Was as smooth as you'd expect of a car under 15k miles.

Cons:

The van had a lot of someone else's trash inside when I picked it up. I spent a half-hour cleaning it out after picking it up. There were chip bags, pop bottles, grease streaks, and a persistient stickiness to the steering wheel that required dish soap to remove. I suppose this is the price paid for a low rate.

My flight was delayed due to bad weather over the Rockies, and by the time I arrived at my destination their booth was closed. I tried calling them 3 times during the day to alert them and no one answered (kept on hold every single time). They did not attempt to call me, and also did not leave the keys for my pick up. I ended up stranded at the airport trying to find transportation to my hotel. Awful experience.
