Cons:

We booked through Kayak and accidently booked the car in our home town in Minneapolis. I was unable to get a refund from Kayak so I tried to get a refund from SIXT. Even thought the mistake was discovered minutes after the reservation was made I had to pay for 3 days of the rental just to cancel. Probably wont use Kayak or SIXT again. Should have been an easy correction from Kayak or SIXT instead cost me $145.00 for nothing. Booked my rental car through Hertz

This was in the area where the vehicles were at the airport. The key fob needed a new battery. I was told to go get one and we will be reimbursed or I could pick a different vehicle. So I went to the counter to ask a question and because I wasn't a Gold Member, they turned around and walked away. So I got into the same vehicle and drove out. On our trip we had to find a store to replace the battery. Not a fan at all. Bringing the vehicle back, I couldn't get my money back, I had to get it back thru a voucher when we rent next time. Not a fan!!!!

The price is more competitive than others, but ...after we picked up the vehicle, we found The gas is only half filled, that is OK The tire warning sign was on, we checked with service desk, we were told that it was cold temperature and will be gone when warmed up, it it stayed on for all 10-day trip, luckily we checked the tire pressure and it was OK. After 1 day of driving, the engine coolant light was on, we had to stop at a gas station and found coolant level was below LOW limit. So we bought a jug of coolant and added to full line. The windshield wiper fluid was low and the wiper had grinding noise when used, we had to manually control to wipe only 1-2 times and turned it off. Luckily we finished our trip safely, last year they charged us $450 for lost item after return and we did not even know what was missing, no sure what to happen this time. Probably not to use Hertz next time.

Cons:

The line at the airport rental desk was 20 people deep. we waited 15 minutes and no one in line moved. perhaps there was some trouble, but we did not see anyone leave the desk to get their rental car. there were 3 agents at the desk. we decided that it would be better to get a lLyft to take us from the airport to our destination, 40 miles away. The cost of the Lyft from and back to the airport was less than the cost of the rental car. There was no way to modify or change the rental, so I lost $145. Next time we will just use Lyft.

I paid for a large SUV ahead of time and when I arrived to pick up my car, I was told there were none in stock and I would have to pay to “upgrade” to a minivan. This doubled the price of my rental.

It was a brand new car and it was just what I asked for. Due to a long distance drive I requested an all wheel or 4 wheel drive SUV and i was able to secure it with no hassle. It was a well equipped car and a super quick and easy check out at the desk. Well done Enterprise.

Cons:

It was cold in Minnesota and when I turned the heat on the windows would cloud up. I had to continuously turn on the rear and front window heaters which would then shut off the heat. But it was alright, I did not freeze but it could have been a little more comfortable. I would rent from them again.

Pro: The rental staff was very friendly and efficient. I was thankful they staff member was there an hour after the office closed as I didn't see anywhere on my reservation that the office closed at 5:00 PM on weekdays and I arrived about 5:30-5:45. I also discovered that if I missed picking it up that day, I would loose the rental sale price. Did I say the checkout staff was very kind and efficient? Con: see above. Please include information on the reservation details (hours) and what happens if your flight is delayed or rescheduled. Please include a copy of any prior noted damage when the car is picked up. I took pictures but was not sure the company was aware of prior damage until I returned the car. Since the office was closed right after I received the keys, I could only take pictures and hope for the best. I called about how to get to the offsite AVIS office and was told I could take a lightrail and walk two blocks. I got a ride and saw it was way more than two blocks and through an area that I was told was not safe. After returning the car to the offsite office, we took an Uber back to the airport (15 minutes).

Pros:

The car was clean, although bigger than we wanted, got so so mileage, and seats were not that comfortable.

Cons:

The wait at checkout was over 30 minutes. I got a ticket because the car had expired plates. When I had to extend the rental due to airline issues, the automated system couldn't extend it, the first, second and third actual persons couldn't do it, and the fourth only did after calling someone else. This also took more than 30 minutes. They are trying to charge me more than $300 for the extra day, which is more than the original 5 day rental.

Car hire insurance in Minneapolis

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Minneapolis car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Minneapolis.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Minneapolis car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Minneapolis

  • Rent a car at the Minneapolis airport upon your arrival to get to your destination fast. It only takes a 20-minute drive into the city center and you can explore one of the “Twin Cities” of Minnesota at your own pace. If you want to explore surrounding areas like the Fort Snelling State Park, which is about 10 miles from the city center, or St. Paul, Minnesota’s capital, a hire car will get you out and about most efficiently.
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has various car hire companies at your disposal. Travelers arriving at Terminal 1 Lindbergh should proceed to the second or third levels for car hire service desks. If landing at Terminal 2 Humphrey, go to the ground floor, where you will find the Ground Transport Center. Both terminals feature the same companies, including Hertz, National, and Avis.
  • Congestion and traffic jams are a regular issue in Minneapolis, especially during peak times (around 7-9 AM and 4-7 PM). To ease the congestion a little, traffic control agents are in place and it is pivotal to follow their orders and to only cross an intersection if you can make it all the way across without blocking the road. Also note that many streets in Minneapolis are one way, so be careful and watch out for the signs to avoid going in the wrong direction.
  • Winters in Minnesota can bring lots of snow, sleet, and ice, so be aware of that when traveling to Minneapolis during the colder months. The city is also known to be best equipped for dire weather conditions, but streets can still become narrower due to snow ploughs pushing the snow to both sides. At intersections, it may also be harder to see other vehicles around the corner when the snow is piled high, so proceed with caution at intersections.
