Bowling Green car rental agencies at the airport include Orbitz, Budget, Alamo, and Avis, which are located at the northeast corner of the airport, on Lucas Drive.

I appreciated the tip the rental agent gave me about turning in the car an hour earlier than I had scheduled to save some money. I will rent here again as a result of that.

Pros:

The gas mileage for this car was great!

Cons:

Car smelled of body odor from previous driver. Was forced to use the built in EZ Pass in the toll road because Ohio Turnpike doesn't have cash only lanes! forced to pay the extra EZ Pass fee when I didn't want it! ZERO pickup or delivery assistance. I walk with a cane and had to walk nearly a quarter mile from parking the car to the desk to drop the keys, late at night, outdoors in the cold.
