KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Springfield

  • It’s worth the effort to look into car rentals in Springfield for your next trip. Beyond cutting out the stress of navigating bus routes and other types of public transportation, renting a car in Springfield opens opportunities to see some incredible sights close to the city. Springfield visitors can use their car rental to visit the Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield, a landmark where a major Civil War battle was fought. Also, the Fantastic Caverns, with a ride-through tour, and the Dickerson Park Zoo, are other popular sites outside of town. A car rental in Springfield could be an important factor in making your visit memorable.
  • Springfield is home to the Springfield-Branson National Airport. The rental car counters are located near the entrance, next to the baggage claim carousels. The Springfield-Branson National Airport provides access to multiple rental car companies, including Avis, Enterprise, Budget, and Thrifty. The lots for these rental car companies are located just outside the terminal and do not require an alternate mode of transportation to get to.
  • Springfield traffic is heaviest during rush hour. Visitors should plan on slower commutes between the hours of 6:30am through 9am and again from 4:30pm to 7pm. The streets to avoid during rush hour are Campbell, Sunshine, and Battlefield. If you need to use these roads during those hours, drivers should add at least 20 extra minutes to the commute. Springfield is also designed for those who wish to commute on bicycles and walking, so drivers should be wary of bikers and pedestrians when driving in Springfield.
  • Springfield is a city that experiences all four seasons of the year. When visiting between November through February, drivers should be aware that snowy driving conditions are possible. Also, Springfield experiences frequent rainstorms, so drivers must be mindful of the dangers of wet conditions on the roads. Visitors from warmer, dryer locations should practice caution if they are unused to driving in these types of situations. One of the best things to do while driving in slick or wet conditions is simply to slow down and give yourself plenty of space to stop.
  • Book your car hire in Springfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Springfield are around 71% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Springfield 
MaryAug 2023
I'd suggest renting from the agency at the airport if you're going to pick up or return a vehicle after or before business hours because that's where you'll have to drop it off after 6 anyway.
KathleenJun 2023
Very easy. In and out usually very fast. Smaller airport so it is easy to find.

FAQs about hiring a car in Springfield

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Springfield?

    In many ways, the size of your party dictates the type of car you select when it comes to your Springfield car rental.

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff in Missouri was very helpful, apologetic and willing to work with me to get into another car. Review for him is great! Overall, it being booked only an hour before, I was happy to get into anything so my review is only to highlight some things. I'd use your company again for the speediness and rate alone.

Cons:

The cleanliness. And the maintenance. CLEANLINESS: The car was pretty dirty inside. It still smelled heavily of cigarettes, had about 5-6 cigarette burn holes in various seats, ceiling and roof, and there was just general dirt and dust in there. Lots of stains. Probably the filthiest interior of a rental I've ever been in. Again, the staff was extremely apologetic and seems like he was ready for me to ask for him to fix it, but I was happy to have something in a short notice. I told him don't worry about it, just please mark it on the pre-drive damage sheet (which showed the exterior damage, many decent size dents) so I wouldn't be charged. He obliged. MAINTENANCE: The maintenance lights showed it was way overdue for service. Warning comes on as soon as you start the car that reads, "Service Required (-4678mi, -9days)". The car only has 44,668 miles so I was surprised at how beat up it felt mechanically. Overall, the car ran fine, got good gas mileage and was reasonably comfortable for my needs and timeframe. Other customers likely would've had an argument to make.

Everything was great, car was ready, quick check out. My only issue is with the way the car insurance was handled. I paid an amount through Kayak which I found out was through a third party, which if I had an accident I would have been responsible to pay for the repairs and then would have been reimbursed through the third party. I'm sure this was disclosed in the fine print, but seems manipulative. I ended up paying an additional amount through Hertz directly, which would cover all repairs had there been damage or an accident.

Poor communication between the two Hertz car company. Customer service should have handled this situation. Hoping to soon be informed of the confirmation of my email.

I was given a upgrade that was a Chevy Tahoe rather than a midsize SUV. But that Tahoe had a leaky tire with three plugs in it and I had to keep pulling over and refilling the tire on on a long drive. Also they gave me a car that did not have the left rear turn signal working. Then when I went to turn the car in they said that I had change the car and they charge me $2000 instead of the 299 a week. I’m very disappointed. I will not be using national car rental again.
