KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Blacksburg

  • Car rentals in Blacksburg offer you several traveling benefits. Blacksburg car rentals help you discover the city more. They offer the flexibility to take as many pit stops as you wish and soak in the adventure by taking pictures along the way. You also explore the city like a local as car rentals offer you door-to-door transport. This saves you the headache of catching commutes, luggage, and extra fees outside your budget. They are an excellent option, especially when you do not have any other travel options. They are a reliable and cost-effective option to explore the city's Moss Arts Center, Hahn Horticulture Garden, or Blacksburg Museum and Cultural Foundation.
  • When flying to Blacksburg, you will most likely arrive at Roanoke International Airport. It provides car rental services on-site. Upon arrival, follow signs for “Ground Transportation Building," which features about nine car rental agencies. It is approximately a 5-10 minute walk from baggage claim, located in a separate building from the terminal and to the left. Car rental agencies available include Thrifty, Alamo, Hertz, and Budget. Consider making earlier reservations to avoid waiting in line for long hours.
  • Keeping Blacksburg’s driving rules is essential for the safe navigation of car rentals. All drivers and passengers in the front seat or the car must have seat belts when the vehicle is in motion. Children under eight must be secured in appropriate child safety or booster seats. When approaching school buses with flashing red lights from any direction, you must stop and wait for the bus driver to turn off the lights and continue moving. Drivers must never follow emergency vehicles within 500 feet. If an emergency vehicle has its lights on, you must always yield. Always yield to pedestrians on sidewalks when entering a roadway from a parking lot, private drive, or alley.
  • Even though driving car rentals in Blacksburg is easy, it has a few challenges. Rush hour peaks between 7 am to 9 am and between 4 pm and 6 pm. Rush hours are prime time for delays and minor accidents due to congestion. Delays can be up to an hour when driving within the city center. If you wish to avoid these, consider driving during off-peak hours. Also, avoid the city's traffic hotspots like I-81 and I-77. Keep an eye out for traffic updates to avoid getting stuck in traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Blacksburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Blacksburg are around 3% cheaper than other car types, on average

Nowhere on any of the communication was I told there was an extra $300 hold on top of the ridiculous amount I was already paying to rent a vehicle. Not everyone has an extra $300 they weren't expecting on a credit card the morning of their trip. I was lucky the family member dropping me off had a card with enough credit to use. Also, I was informed when I brought the car back I could switch it back to my card (the only reason the family member agreed to let the charge be held on their card). But, they quickly charged the family member's card at drop off and then told me they couldn't refund the money and put it on my card. Would you like to know how pissed family member was? The car itself was another issue. Even though there was an upgrade (reg SUV to Minivan) because they didn't have what I reserved (why?) and it was a 2022, it didn't have GPS or Sirius radio. I was lucky to have brought a cable to wire my phone in because the car wouldn't connect through Bluetooth. Regardless, I had to use MY phone data for GPS and music the whole time. This is not at all ok considering how expensive the rental was. I rented from Enterprise 2 years ago and felt like I landed in the lap of luxury (same type of reservation but $50 a day cheaper). The vehicle was completely loaded with all the amenities. The vehicle was immaculate. The vehicle I received this time was fairly dirty with crumbs under the seats. I was totally disappointed with the whole experience. The only good thing I have to say about the whole experience was the employee I dealt with initially. He was very friendly and very stuck with policies that made no sense ($300 charge). I used to recommend Enterprise to anyone looking to rent a car. I don't know if I can still do that. What happened?

KAYAK

Pros:

In person staff was nice but not informed well

Cons:

I tried calling Hertz 6 times to request a rental extension because of an unexpected family emergency and all six times no one answered. We also were unable to fill the car up with gas as no Gas Stations within 30 miles had a working pump due to the Oil Pipeline hack. This was ruled a State of Emergency yet Hertz still charged up $7 a gallon to fill the tank up.
