KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Elkhart

  • Anytime you visit Elkhart for a vacation, business trip, or romantic getaway, think about using car rental services. When compared to the Interurban Trolley's public transportation, car rentals in Elkhart give drivers the advantage of greater freedom. When you have a rental car, you can choose the routes you want to take at your own discretion. One of the locations you might think about seeing with your rental car is the sports and entertainment complex known as Notre Dame Stadium.
  • By reserving car rentals in Elkhart, you can take advantage of self-driving to various locations in the city and from the airport. Elkhart Municipal Airport is the main entry point for air passengers flying into Elkhart. Although there is no on-site vehicle rental facility at this airport, there are shuttles that transport guests from the airport to the car rental destination. These courtesy buses are offered by all the main Elkhart car rentals, including Budget, Avis, and Enterprise.
  • You must keep in mind two crucial things when you drive your rental car in Elkhart. The majority of the streets in downtown Elkhart are wide and in good shape. However, there are a lot of bikers utilizing these roads, so resist the urge to drive aggressively. Many of them abruptly jump into traffic. If you're not keen enough, you might easily hit them. A good number of Elkhart drivers are wary about tailgating and readily take offense to it. When driving in the city, keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you at all times.
  • When you hire a car in Elkhart, your excitement for the city starts to wane during rush hours, which start at 7 am and end at 9 am in the mornings and at 4.30 pm and end at 7 pm in the evenings. During rush hour, Elkhart County Road 17 is one of the busiest roads in the city. If you drive on this road instead of the alternatives, you will be caught in traffic for an unnecessary amount of time.
  • Book your car hire in Elkhart at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Elkhart are around 14% cheaper than other car types, on average

Additionally, there is room in the car for additional luggage. If you're traveling alone and simply have two pieces of luggage or less, an economy automobile will be ideal for you.

If you fail to access one, you will be forced to budget for parking when using car rentals in Elkhart. In this case, you can utilize street parking, where you will pay about $1 per hour. However, the parking spots available are fewer, and only early risers are guaranteed to get parking spaces. One of the popular public parking garages you may consider is the Marion Street Facility.

Enterprise called me a day before and told me they had to canceled my car as they had high demand for the Holiday and they did not had the car that I reserved many days ago. They told me they couldn’t do anything that put me on a waiting list to see what day they could have a car available.!

Cons:

the car was not ready when promised and took a long time to prepare. The dashboard was smeared with grease. The gas tank was on empty and I had to get gas before I could even go home to pack the car...a ploy to get more gas in the tank at the end of the trip!!

The wiper blades presented a major safety hazard. I advised Enterprise to have them replaced immediately. Be sure to check them before you leave.

Pros:

Cons:

a lot. First off, Google and Apple Maps had a hard time finding the location, it was showing it in a different location than it was. When I called, the lady was rude and not very helpful. When I showed up she was short and not very friendly. The car was dirty, scratched, dented, etc. Dropoff was easy (hopefully I did it right). Parked and filled out the form and dropped it in the box.
