Top tips for hiring a car at Wilkes-Barre Scranton airport

  • A car rental at Wilkes-Barre Airport (AVP) will suffice if you're looking for convenient transportation means to and from the airport. The primary benefit you'll accrue is traveling on your terms, meaning that you won't need to follow taxi or ride-share time schedules. It's also advantageous compared to public transit means, as you'll not have to wait for a bus and risk extending your travel time longer than necessary. With a car rental, you'll minimize your travel costs, as renting a vehicle for an extended period is less costly than paying for multiple short trips.
  • Renting a car in Wilkes-Barre Scranton Airport is fast and straightforward, with rental counters present on-terminal. You can step out of your plane and get behind the wheels within no time. Moreover, car companies usually have their fleets of vehicles right outside the terminal, so you'll not endure any shuttle waits for drop-offs at the car lot. You can also accelerate the pick-up process by leveraging individual company resources, including amenities present to avoid long lines.
  • When you're ready to return your Wilkes-Barre Scranton Airport car rental, you'll find the process easy since it involves dropping off the vehicle at the familiar point you picked it up. Here, you'll head to the airport and follow the Rental Car Return signs that'll lead you to the rental car lot. From there, go to the rental agency counter and drop off the key and contract. With the after-hours service available from some companies, you can conveniently drop off the vehicle outside working hours and skip the counter.
  • The I-81 stretch between Scranton and Wilkes-Barre can be challenging to maneuver during rush hour. You'll find peak travel times on the route to be around 7.30 am, 11.30 am, and 5.15 pm, with the morning rush being inbound to the city towards the airport and the evening rush outbound from the airport as you head to downtown Wilkes-Barre or Scranton. We recommend that you avoid traveling to or from the airport during rush hour if you want your car rental process to have no struggles regarding accessibility.
  • Book your car hire at Wilkes-Barre Scranton airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

I liked the cleanliness and the availability of the vehicle. Something that I believe could have been better was the price. More than $1000 for three days was somewhat pricey.

We had an excellent experience, nothing to improve upon. I was concerned that the vehicle we reserved may not have been waiting for us since no deposit was necessary but everything went very smooth from beginning to end.

Friendly receptionist. Choices of vehicles in class reserved. I returned the vehicle more than a day early, but didn’t get a refund for the day. That would’ve been nice. Also, I was quoted one price and charged more at check out.

They told me over the phone it was 150$ deposit but when I got to the counter they said it was 250$ deposit which I did not have. Now I have to wait 10 days to get my 135$ refund for the cost of the rental which I could not rent because I didn’t have the 250$. For deposit. Poor communication. Workers should have been I sync..

Inspect the tires on their vehicles. As many miles that are driven in these vehicles, there needs to be something put in place that all tires are inspected by tire personnel. The vehicle I drove had a bad tire. The tire was in the rear as it shook the drivers seat. It also was loud enough, that it became road noise, and it wasn't. These symptoms were all pointing to uneven tire and/or tire separation. Luckily I had it only for a day, however, it was driven for 500+ miles.

I didn't see the fine print that stated Hertz counter closed at 8:00 PM. Our plane landed @ 8:45 PM and by the time we arrived at the Hertz counter it was closed. There was a sign posted on the counter that stated they were closed. The other car rental agencies were open, in fact National was the only only agency that had a car for me and my wife. I tried calling Hertz Customer Service center only to be transferred and ultimately disconnected. I tried calling back to no resolve. I understand Scranton Airport is not a major hub; however, Hertz knew I was due in, in fact the agent called my cell phone - while I was in the air - to let me know I was late and that she was about to leave and to contact her back. If National didn't have a car for me I don't know what I would have done, my family, whom we were visiting was over a 100 miles away, and elderly. Instead using small print to identify that they close @ 8:00 PM, they should ensure their customer understands their limitations - which their competitors didn't seem to have.
