One of the most popular car rentals in Hampton for business travelers are sedans, which are comfortable, easy to drive on the downtown streets, and easy to park in the convention center and hotel parking lots. Couples who are visiting the city and Virginia coast may opt for a convertible, especially in the late spring, summer, and early fall when the weather is beautiful. Families who plan to spend time at the local beaches often choose to rent a minivan because of the additional storage space available for all the beach vacation essentials.
The maximum speed on I-64 in Hampton is 65mph, but on most other major thoroughfares the maximum speeds are 40mph to 55mph.

Pros:The staff was very helpful, friendly, and patient during my pickup and drop-off of the rental.
Cons:when I got to Hertz on pickup day they stated they did not have a car for me even though I had reserved and paid for rental, after raising hell and stating I wasn't leaving till I got a car they found one. When I returned to drop off car at designated time there was a note on the door stating they would be right back. I waited 45 min for them to return and they were to close in 10 min. POOR SERVICE NEVER AGAIN
Cons:Friendly, customer service, great value
Pros:I loved how friendly everyone was. We even got a ride home when we dropped off the car and I really enjoyed the fun conversation on the way home.
Cons:Everything was amazing. Thank you guys!
Pros:The representative was friendly. He got me in a car quickly . The car I had reserved wasn't available. He waived the basic I!sirance coverage because the car he had told me was available.
Cons:I returned the cat, the representative charged me for the basic insurance. This representative said the fee shouldn't been waived. The inconsistency was annoying.
Pros:The truck was nice.
Cons:The bed was a bit. Was also unable to place magnet on truck.
Pros:The process of dropping the truck and picking up the car was a nightmare. The rental location scheduled to open at 8:00 am was not staffed until about 10:20 am. When we arrived there were over 10 people ahead of us who had been there since before 8:00 am. The delay in staff arriving to work caused an enormous delay in my ability to get to work. I was late and had to cancel clients. And my friend was over 3.5 hours late leaving town for the 6 hour drive.
Cons:When we called the emergency number we received no help, no compensation, etc. Nothing. There wasn’t even a way to drop off the truck we were turning in- no lock box or key drop off. So it’s not like we could drop the truck and go to another rental location. We were stuck.
