The customer service rep was very friendly and gave me all the information I needed to get me on my way.The vehicle we were given was not the one I agreed to rent, but was a comparable substitute. The paint was a little scratched up, and could have been washed up.

We were lucky to have rented an SUV that only had 24 miles on it. There was still plastic covering parts of the console. This was the first time I had driven this sort of vehicle. It had a ton of features and was super comfortable.It was difficult to find the car rental location and when I called it was hard to get ahold of someone to clarify directions. The agent was all by herself and couldn’t manage the desk and the phone by herself without effecting the quality of service, but she did the best she could and was great.

Great customer service and we really liked the Toyota Corolla rental car. Great experience and I would recommend.Everything went well.
4.4 OkayFeb 7 2019
The drop off was easy.I had no idea they had reserved a huge mini-van for one person, that was uncomfortable with horrible gas mileage. Lesson learned. I will not be booking through Kayk again!

Drop off very easy, nice person there. Pick up, only one agent at a somewhat more busy time. Price good.A bit faster check in (pick up), but not a real problem.

Liked the fast drop off at dca. Car was one way and full of smoke. Even with all the windows down the smell was overpowering. We took multiple breaks to limit my pregnant wife's exposure. For a 120$ a day rental the vehicle was old, abused, and unclean.
2.0 MediocreOct 22 2021
According to Kayak the total was supposed to be under $300. We got to Avis and they charged us over $700
3.9 MediocreOct 17 2021
Had to wait over an hour to get vehicle at RDU. I am a female traveling alone. It started to rain heavily. Turned on the windshield wipers and the drivers side wiper was barely on the arm. Had to pull over 3 times to try and reattach. Then stopped for gas...the interior of fuel compartment was all cracked and moved when I put nozzle in. Pumped until it automatically stopped. Stopped pumping as concerned about the cracked and moving gas compartment. I was then charged for .6 gallons of gas!!! Told the guy about wiper when I dropped car off...he said the wrong wiper was on car. I could have gotten into an accident due to their negligence.

While the drop off was east, I found that I was charged $6.99 for gas when I filled the gas rouhgly one mile from the drop off place. My mistake is I did not check the bill until I reached home. I feel cheated because I filled the carThe staff should be fair and inform the client that they find the tank not filled while we signed to fill and bring. Clean the car better both inside and outside. There was smell of smoke inside the car when I took it. I mentioned this to the security at the gate. He told me that this may be from the material used for the upholstery.

They said the lot opened at 4 am. Waited until 4:20 am then had to walk to the terminal.

Car was fineTook a while to get the car when I picked it up. I had a 9:00 drop off time. Arrived to Avis at 9:00 and no one was at the office and the door was locked. Avis worked showed up at 9:15 and couldn’t even get in the office. I had to leave my rental agreement and keys with her at the front door because we were all stuck outside. Very unprofessional

The agent at pickup was horrible. Unable to perform any task by herself. Poorly trained. The rental agency was supposed to have my car ready at 5 but got a car at six. 3 customers ahead of me and 3 customers behind me got their cars while my easy transaction went by the wayside. There is more but
6.0 GoodJul 29 2019
Good, clean carLonger wait than usual to get car. The representative tried to tack on an extra hour to increase charges. The rep sent me in the wrong direction to get the car, which when I ultimately found the car, it was boxed in between two other cars and another rep had to move a vehicle so that I could leave.
2.4 MediocreJul 25 2019
Manager credited me one day for being given an unclean car with no working radio and having poor customer service.I could have been credited more than one day for the major inconvenience that this experience caused.
7.6 GoodJun 17 2019
Pick-up staff didn't seem very excited to be at work and weren't super friendly. They got the job done, but all explanations were very fast and assumed we knew exactly what they were talking about. There was also a slight language barrier as English was a second language for the staff.More agents available would have sped up the process.
2.0 MediocreMay 21 2019
They would not let me rent a car because I did not have a credit card other than my Wells Fargo visa

Deceptive LocationRates are goodThe Management at this location at Raleigh NC airport is deceptive and sleazy. They try to add coverages to your bill telling you that you can take them off when you return. They hope you are in a hurry or forget.

Easy drop offThe reservation wasn't for the Airport location. The desk clerk wasn't any help and only offered to call me a cab. Called Hertz customer service which had to cancel the original pre-paid reservation. Made new reservation for the Airport location with a new price. Also $100 cancel fee.

Car had a light/faded cigarette smell...ultimately was fine but would have preferred to not have that.
6.8 GoodJul 27 2018
Car was clean and nice for a compact. Drop-off was easy.I didn't realize that the rental car was to be picked up in town rather than at the airport. Why was that not apparent? I'm not computer illiterate so why was this not front and center? An extra $50 for nothing and the rental fee was already high (we just had a rental in Wisconsin at a much lower rate for a much better car). Pushy attendant.

9.6 ExcellentFeb 18 2020
Staff very friendly. Drop off and pick up were a breeze.Nothing I can think of. My passengers lived the tall van, much easier to get in and out of. The sliding door was a little tough to close, an electric close and open function would have been the only thing that could have made it better.
9.2 ExcellentJan 27 2020
Staff very helpful, professional and friendly.Maxima I had reserved was not available. I had my wife drive me to this location, passing an Enterprise location very close to our home, because the Maxima was supposed to be held there for me.

I received an email confirmation prompt the day before the rental, full walk through of the car’s interior functions including Bluetooth syncing, gas tank release, etc., and a phone call the next day asking if all was going smoothly with the car. Excellent customer care.

6.0 GoodNov 18 2018
customer service was very good.I did not like the fact that I was rented a car out of Raleigh, not RDU. Maybe my error, I don't know. I changed the rental to the airport and the prices were much higher, mostly taxes. When I went to correct this, I got a runaround as to who to contact? Kayak? Enterprise? Kayak did not make anything easier or cheaper. You could spend hours trying to compare rates and in the end they are all the same. In the future I will go direct to a car rental company and avoid all the middlemen.
9.6 ExcellentSep 14 2018
Excellent customer service !From the pick up at my house all the way to the completion of renting a car was great.Car must’ve been used to pick up someone with long hair in the passenger seat had a lot of that otherwise it was perfectly clean.

Top tips for hiring a car in Cary

  • GoCary, Transit 101, and GoTriangle are some of the best public transport services you can use in Cary. While you can rely on them for getting around the city, there is the issue of convenience, independence, privacy, pleasure, and comfortability. Car rentals in Cary offer services with many benefits that are not provided by other modes of transport. For instance, with a Cary rental car, getting to the spots you want, such as going for a fishing expedition at Lake Crabtree, is hassle-free.
  • Cary is a city served by five airports. Raleigh/Durham (RDU) Airport is five miles away from the city, while the rest are over 50 miles away. Cary car rentals in the Raleigh/Durham (RDU) Airport provide courtesy shuttle bus services to their pick-up areas and offices, some of which are situated in the airport premises while others in nearby buildings. To catch the shuttle bus of Cary car rentals, which runs every 5min from the terminals during business hours, head to the rental car shuttle terminal located next to the baggage claim area either in Terminal 1 at Zone 4 or in Terminal 2 at Zone 5. Proceed to the counter where you’ll find Thrifty, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, National, Easirent, and keddy by Europcar for Cary car rentals to obtain your rental agreement and vehicle.
  • Roads in and out of Cary are well maintained. However, some roads with narrow but busy lanes, such as the stretch of Evans road have little room for cars, cyclists, and other road users to maneuver. When nearing such roads or busy intersections such as Edwards Mill Road near PNC Arena, you need to be extra cautious. The roads are usually slippery during cold and snowy seasons so, drive at a reasonable speed and with caution if you’re in town.
  • In Cary, rush hour is between 7am to 8am and from 5pm to around 7:30pm. If you’re attending some business functions in the central district, leave earlier than 7am, and if you’re leaving town, give yourself enough time. If you have to drive during these peak hours, stay in your lane, maintain a safe distance, and adhere to all traffic rules. Try to avoid busy intersections, such as the one at Southeast Cary Parkway and Tryon Road.
  • Book your car hire in Cary at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Cary are around 12% cheaper than other car types, on average
