KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cape Girardeau

  • While the city does have its own public bus service, it is quite limited, making car rentals in Cape Girardeau one of the best ways to explore the area. If you have access to Cape Girardeau car rentals, you can easily go to different neighborhoods without having to waste time waiting for the bus to arrive. You will also be able to see sights that are a bit far from the city center, such as the Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center and the Cape Rock Park.
  • If you will be traveling to the area by plane, you can always choose to grab car rentals in Cape Girardeau directly from Cape Girardeau Regional Airport (CGI). The Cape Girardeau car rental center can be found in the Arrivals area, right near where baggage claim is located. You will find a few different companies that have offices in the rental car center, including Enterprise Rental, Ochs Car Rental, and CCTA.
  • Cape Girardeau is a relatively small town that is generally easy to drive in. However, you will want to keep your eyes open when operating car rentals in Cape Girardeau in the downtown area, as there are quite a few pedestrians here, and you may come across jaywalking. You may also see quite a few cyclists, so keep your eyes open for these while driving a Cape Girardeau car rental.
  • During the summer months, you will likely see more congestion in central Cape Girardeau than usual, as this is typically when people visit the city. The streets also tend to have more traffic during rush hour, so try to avoid driving car rentals in Cape Girardeau during this time. In general, rush hour falls between 7:00 and 9:30 am and 5:00 and 7:00 pm During the winter months, Cape Girardeau often experiences snow, so make sure to drive any Cape Girardeau car rental with extra caution when in these conditions.

  • Where are the best places to park a car rental in Cape Girardeau?

    The city of Cape Girardeau is known for having plenty of free street parking to choose from, but it generally fills up quickly, so you will want to start looking for a spot to park your Cape Girardeau car rental early in the day.

Pricing for these paid options is typically done by the hour, but this will vary depending on the exact location. Many private businesses, like hotels, restaurants, and shops, will also have private parking that customers can usually use at no cost.

Pros:

Drop-off and pick up is easy. Car was good, nothing wrong with it.

Cons:

Car wasn't as clean as the first time I rented, which was back in January of this year (2021). Booked a Camry but somehow the staff told me that the make/model was not guaranteed, so I was given an Altima. The deposit got bumped up $100 for debit card users, did not know that. First time renting here was amazing, the second time is only half as good of an experience because the first time I got a personal touch form Enterprise by receiving text message from a customer staff asking if I had any questions regarding my rental, and that lady was super helpful answering all my concerns. I did not get any customer support text second time, so that was kind of sad.

Pros:

The staff, customer service person named Lauren who was extra helpful and timely answered all the questions pertaining to the rental and return process at Enterprise, which is amazing. Would definitely rent from Enterprise again if they keep having a person reaching out to rentees to check on things, very neat.

Cons:

It was great.

Pros:

Always convenient, professional and affordable. I love them! I one rented from Budget and had the most horrible experience. Budget was rude and expensive. That experience reaffirmed my commitment to Enterprise and I haven't looked back since. I highly recommend Enterprise and will happily continue to use their services.

Pros:

I very much liked my car; it was in great shape, got the best gas mileage Ive ever seen & it was comfy for my long road trip. Oh yeah & I think I looked pretty hip driving in the Chevy Spark ;) Overall I couldnt have been more pleased!!

Cons:

There was not a single thing I didnt like; I mean, lets be honest, Id always appreciate an even cheaper deal on the car but I felt like I still got a grand deal & the peace of mind I had on the road while driving the chevy spark was priceless :)
