KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Apple Valley

  • Explore the beauty of Apple Valley with Apple Valley car rentals. Unlike public transport, a rental car offers unparalleled convenience to explore attractions like the Minnesota Zoo and Lebanon Hills Regional Park at your own pace. While the city provides limited public transit options, car rentals in Apple Valley give you the freedom to venture further to attractions like Mall of America (18 miles away) and nearby lakes. Embrace the flexibility to make the most of your trip, especially if you're keen on exploring beyond the city limits.
  • Make your arrival seamless by choosing car rentals in Apple Valley at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP), the nearest major airport to the city center. Rental car offices are conveniently located on-site, in the Ground Transportation Center of both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. No need for an airport shuttle; simply follow the signs to the Ground Transportation Center. With your rental car ready, you can swiftly embark on your Apple Valley adventure, enjoying the convenience and flexibility of your own vehicle.
  • Embrace the ease of driving in Apple Valley with Apple Valley car rentals. The city boasts well-maintained roads and a calm atmosphere for navigation. However, be cautious around schools and residential areas where speed limits can drop to 25 mph. Pedestrian crossings are prevalent, so always yield the right of way to pedestrians. Apple Valley enforces strict seat belt laws, and mobile phone use while driving is prohibited. Adhering to these rules ensures a safe and enjoyable driving experience in this charming city.
  • Navigating Apple Valley is generally smooth, but be cautious during rush hours, especially around Cedar Avenue and County Road 42, as traffic can be heavy. The winter months, particularly December to February, can bring snow and icy conditions, affecting roads and visibility. Reduced speeds (around 25 mph) are advised during snowy weather. Opt for all-season or winter tires with your Apple Valley car rentals to ensure safety. By staying attentive, especially in winter, you'll overcome potential challenges and enjoy your driving experience in this beautiful city.

Pros:

I was actually renting a car from Avis and then investigated Enterprise. I was surprised to find out I could get a car with unlimited miles for 1/4 of the price! Also, Avis charges $10/gal to fill the tank if you bring it back not full. Enterprise charges $1/gal over the current rate.

Cons:

can't even think of anything

The worst customer service I have ever experienced. I drove the car directly from the airport to the place I was staying, and when I arrived, I noticed that some bright pink liquid was leaking under the hood. I looked under the hood and saw that a tube was broken and fluid was everywhere. I immediately called Ace, where I was transferred 6 times and had to retell my story to each person (which was not too big of a deal). A woman named Katie finally got me, and immediately accused me of crashing the car and told me that it is my fault and either I needed to take it to a shop to get it fixed or I needed to pay $2k for them to come tow the car back to the rental agency. I told her that I did not crash the car, there was no other damage to the car, and the leak must have been cause before I got the car. She continued to tell me it is my fault and I must have done something to cause it. I then asked to speak to a supervisor, who ended up being even worse. She then transferred me over to John, who was even more rude. He spoke down to me the entire time we were on the phone, and continued to tell me it was my fault and that I had to fix it myself or pay to tow the car. I asked him about the bumper to bumper warranty, and he said this obviously would not be covered under warranty. He even ended up hanging up on me. I then drove the car (which was unsafe) to the nearest dealership and asked if they could fix it and explained the situation. Everyone at the dealership was disgusted and confused, and said that they've never heard of a rental company treating customers like that or making customers pay for/perform maintenance on a car. After they looked at the car, they told me it WAS covered under warranty, it was NOT safe for me to drive, and that they could not give me the car back. The serviceman also noted that there was no way the damage happened while it was in my care and was clearly not my fault. The car dealership service man called John directly and explained the situation, and only then did John agree to send me a new car at no cost to me. (Although John did call me back and tried to convince me to pay for and take a shuttle to the airport instead of getting the car.) The fact that I as the customer was immediately blamed for the damage without the company even looking at the car until a dealership serviceman backed me up is horrific. Terrible customer service. Nobody should be treated to or spoken to the way I was. I would never recommend renting with this company to anybody.

As soon as we landed, I received a text with instructions on what to do next. We jumped on the shuttle and got our car. We didn’t have any kind of what or any issues. When we returned the car, it was the same. No waiting and a quick shuttle ride back to the airport. It was 2 adults and 4 kids and 7 suitcases and 6 backpacks. We got a brand new Chrysler Pacifica van, that had 1000 miles on it. Very nice car that fit all of us and our luggage. It was great all around, renting from Ace.

The car was terrible. It would only take 1/4th of a galling of gas at a time from the pump. The passenger seat would not move back or forth, weird watery noise when accelerating from a stop.
