KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Decatur

  • Are you planning a family vacation in Decatur? Consider booking a car rental in Decatur to avoid relying on public transportation services for your trips. They have a set schedule that may not fit yours. Decatur car rentals also give you the peace of mind to focus on enjoying and giving your family unforgettable trips. Furthermore, renting a car in Decatur saves money, time, and energy because you'll not commute from one bus terminal to another. You will gain the convenience of vising places such as Leisure Time RV Park and John Tanner County Park, all located 51 miles from the city centre. Car rentals can conveniently get you there.
  • You will land at Huntsville International Airport (HSV), 14.4 miles from the city center. The most popular car rental agency includes Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, Budget, Alamo, Thrifty, Dollar, and National. All car rental company desks are at the 1000 Glenn Hearn Blvd SW airport terminal. Self-service is available to reduce long lines at the rental counters. The benefit of renting your car from the airport location is that it's reliable and affordable.
  • Driving is generally a safe, easy, and enjoyable experience in Decatur; thanks to well-developed roads. However, there are a few things you should be mindful of. For instance, when driving your car rentals in Decatur, you'll encounter motorbikes using the same lane as motorists. Be sure to keep a keen eye on them, especially when approaching or overtaking them. Another thing you need to look out for is jaywalking. Jaywalking is still common in the city, and may impact your driving experience. Slow down when approaching populated areas, like commuter areas and business zones.
  • Like other cities in the United States, Decatur experiences traffic congestion during rush hours. On weekdays, the morning rush hour starts from 7:00 to 9:00 am and the evening rush hours begin from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Avoid traveling during these periods if it's not urgent. You can plan your trips before or after the rough hours. Avoid places with dense human traffic, like commuter centers.
  • Book your car hire in Decatur at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Decatur are around 58% cheaper than other car types, on average

Specifically asked at Nashville if I could change my payment method at drop off (different location) and was told yes. At drop off they said they can't do it, that I need to call Nashville, and they can. Called Nashville and they can't do it over the phone, I need to go to that location (i'm in a different state now). Called customer care- and they just had an attitude with me telling me if I want to change it I need to go to Nashville.

The combination of Avis and Budget led to confusion - on the pickup it was pretty clear but on the drop-off it was not very clear where and how the drop off should be done.

Great experience at the counter. The car was dirty and probably not cleaned yet. I think they were just so busy turning cars around. I with the 4 hours I had the car were cheaper. This is why I rated it the way I did.

We were expecting a midsize vehicle, but when we arrived all they had was a minivan. I was concerned about it getting terrible gas mileage and being bigger than we needed, but it worked out alright. It was comfortable for the 2 weeks we had it and the gas wasn't as good as we would have liked, but we enjoyed the space and comfort for the amount of time we spent on the road.

Cons:

I reserved a car online, and flew 800 miles . But when i arrived they told me i was not eligible to rent because of a deductible in 2004. Something I still have no knowledge of. Also poor customer service in Huntsville. Alabama.

KAYAK

Cons:

The Lin’s seemed to move slow when I was picking up the car. There was only one person in front of me and it took a good 10 minutes to get me through the line. I’ve always thought car rental companies should pay attention to that metric. The last thing someone wants to be doing after a long airline flight is wait in a slow moving line.

Pros:

Car rental staff was nice, the location can't be beat--just get off the down escalator right by Baggage Claim and there it is!

Cons:

Renters were at the mercy of whoever looked at the long list of reservations and did not authorize delivering more cars for rental until an SOS from the desk staff. Waited over an hour for cars to be available so they could rent them--NOT professional at all and very unhappy customers!
