KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Evansville

  • Getting a rental car can significantly ease your movement in Evansville. You'll be able to move from one place to another without the stress that is accompanied by buses or taxis. You'll also be comfortable and in control of the schedule that you want to keep during your stay in the city. With a vehicle from car rentals in Evansville, you can go as close as Mesker Park Zoo, which is a short drive away from town, or go as far as Jasper, which is about 63 miles from Evansville, without having to wait on anyone. Jasper is home to the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame, and if you’re a baseball fan, this might be a place you'd want to visit.
  • When you land at the Dress Regional Airport (EVV), you'll find there are different car rental agencies to choose from, including Enterprise, Budget, Avis, Alamo, Hertz, and National. The rental car counter is on airport premises, and you'll find it at the baggage claim area. The rental cars are parked outside the baggage claim, so once you pick up your key from your Evansville car rental of choice, you can drive off to the city.
  • It is illegal to use handheld devices while driving in Evansville. This law's violators can be handed a Class C infraction, which is punished by paying a fine of up to $500. Some laws limit drivers from operating any vehicle in reverse unless done without interfering with traffic and within reasonable safety.
  • Expect heavy traffic in Evansville, especially during the morning rush hour, which spans between 7am and 8am. If there's any construction underway in the city, it might make navigating some routes more difficult compared to others. One of the more dangerous intersections in the city where you should be careful is the Green River Rd and Vogel Rd intersection, especially when turning on to Green River. Traffic becomes a gridlock at the intersection between Vann Ave and Lloyd Expressway, so give yourself extra time if you must commute. Be careful when driving at the intersection between Oak Hill Rd and Lynch Rd as it's prone to accidents.
  • Book your car hire in Evansville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Evansville are around 37% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Evansville

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Evansville?

You must keep in mind the number of people you are traveling with and the activities you are going to engage in. For shorter commutes within the city, it's advisable to get a compact car that’ll make parking easier for you. However, if you plan on driving for long distances outside the city, a standard car may be a more suitable option. It'll be comfortable and have more room for any cargo you're bringing along. Consider a compact car that is more environment-friendly and that has low emissions.

Reserved car online for noon pickup on Saturday. Called at 12:15 to make sure everything was ready before driving to rental office, only to learn the office closed at noon and would not reopen until Monday. This left me in a difficult spot, but things got worse when I went online to cancel the reservation and was charged a $306 cancellation fee. I won’t be renting from Hertz again.

The people at the place we’re so nice and helpful. The car however smelled of smoke. The car had been cleaned and smelled strong of air freshener until the 3rd day when that wore off and the smell of stale cigarettes took over the car.

I rented a car for a week from the Green River road Evansville Indiana location and I was told by a rep that if I returned the car earlier than when my reservation ended I would be reimbursed for the days I did not use the vehicle. I returned the car on the 3rd day of my rental and I was charged the full amount. If I would have known I would be charged the full amount I would have let the rental sit in my driveway for 4 more days. I told that to the person I returned it to and she said yeah that would be smarter "but there is nothing she can do about it now" because she had already processed the return. I asked if there was someone else I could speak to and she gave me customer services number. I called customer service on Monday (11/8) and they told me they could adjust my bill to the daily rate for a compact car but they could not do the refund until I was fully charged so to call back after Wednesday. I called back Friday (11/12) and they are now saying my bill should be even more than what I paid for it. If that was the case why would it make any sense for them to tell me to call back so I can be charged even more for returning a car half a week early so Hertz can benefit from charging me the full week and charging whoever else they rent it to that day. I am very unhappy with the misinformation I was given and how I was yanked around and wasted my time. I want to be reimbursed for the 4 days I did not use the rental car which is over half of my rental agreement. This is deceitful and Hertz is now able to use the vehicle for other customers that I returned early only at a cost to me. I am very unhappy with how I was treated as a Gold Plus Rewards member. I will not be using Hertz again.

Pros:

I needed to rent a car on a Sunday morning because I was involved in an auto accident on Saturday night, far from home. Avis offered the best prices to get me home (in Kansas). The process was easy and relatively affordable compared to the other outrages quotes from Enterprise.

Cons:

I wish the company would have opened before noon. My drop off experience was frustrating, as well, but that has nothing to do with Evansville.

Waited forever for counter to process rental contract. Then walked to pickup area and car wasn’t even there. I had to go back to counter and wait in line again for 30 minutes to get another car. I made sure car was in lot. I had to leave car to get a ride back to pickup rental. When I returned to pick car up I started the car and it had low washer fluid warning and car network down check immediately warning. I walked back in to rental counter. There was 5 people in line. I waited 45 minutes only move up 2 people. I walked to enterprise and had a car rented in 15 minutes. I then got back in line behind to same to people and waited another 30 minutes. I told the counter person I wanted a full refund due to car issues and wait time. I was told they can’t refund I had to call customer service. I called customer service and had to argue with because they said the car had moved when it did not. They refunded most of my money $62 wasn’t refunded but it’s not worth calling again and I lost the insurance money I paid to the site $66. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had renting a vehicle.

Still waiting for a callback from your supervisor. I was denied a car I paid for because I was late for pickup because I BROKE MY FOOT. And your employee yelled at me, cancelled my car and then publicly harassed me in an airport. I then had to pay $200 more for a last minute rental from a competitor company at the airport and they only had a truck which I could barely get in because of said foot
