KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hendersonville

  • Car rentals in Hendersonville offer numerous advantages over relying on public transportation. A rental car will allow you to explore Hendersonville's attractions without being restricted by the buses' or trains' fixed schedules or limited routes. In addition, having a rental car allows you to easily access more remote and scenic areas that may not be served by public transit. Some of the region's attractions accessible by rental car include the Mineral & Lapidary Museum, Henderson County Heritage Museum, and Appalachian Pinball Museum. Furthermore, a rental car can be a cost-effective option, especially if you are traveling with family or in a group or planning to explore multiple destinations during your stay, as sharing the rental costs among several people is more economical than purchasing individual public transportation tickets.
  • Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is the primary airport serving Hendersonville and its surrounding regions. If you are planning a flight to Hendersonville, you will arrive at AVL. Hendersonville car rentals are readily available at AVL, providing travelers with convenient options for transportation. Once you've arrived at the airport, you'll find multiple car rental desks in the arrivals area. These desks are located conveniently near the baggage claim area, allowing you to easily secure a vehicle upon arrival. The car rentals in Hendersonville operating at AVL include Budget, Thrifty, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo, Avis, Dollar, Hertz, National, and VIPCars.

Despite having no cars available/clean/ready to rent, Budget continued to take reservations for new car rentals. The guy at the counter said it would be "at least 30 minutes" til a car was ready but could offer no more details. I asked how many people were ahead of me and he said 15! There were many people there who had waited much longer than 30 minutes. I finally got a call about a car 2+ hours later. By then I had already given up and taken a taxi to my hotel, and a taxi to dinner. The rental ended up costing me $50 more than it should have due to the costs of the taxis and a lot of unnecessary hassles. I will not rent from Budget again.

Gave me an EV to travel in the mountains. Representative told me it would be no issue as there was a charging cable in the car to charge it where we were staying. She offered to downgrade a car but pay extra, because she said there was a cord to charge it we decided to give it a try. Turned out there was no charging cable or adapter and was unable to use the car in fear of having no battery to get back to the airport and did not want to spend half a day driving back to swap it out or find and sit at a charger.

Pick- up and drop-off are in the terminal. The person on duty was very efficient and wait time was nominal. The car could have been cleaner. Inside of the windows hasn't been cleaned, ever? Very cloudy. Right front tire need air and the message that it was time for an oil change greeted me daily. The car was a hybrid Pacifica and drove very well, with gas mileage approaching 40 mpg! All and all a good experience.

Staff in Asheville was terrible. They ended up giving us the wrong car and we only found it out when we dropped it off in Jacksonville. Staff in Jacksonville as almost as bad. The car was also not cleaned before. Someone's old coke can was left in the car.

Cons:

Whatever you do, make sure you get a PAPER contract when you pick up your car. They said we didn't need one in Asheville and they just emailed it to us, but once we got to Jacksonville, Hertz acted like we should have had one and they treated us as if we were the problem with it not being there.

Not having an electric vehicle. It was very stressful finding charge stations and the time needed to complete a charge. We had one weekend to enjoy a wedding. 13 hours of it was sitting at a charge stations. There are very few level 3 stations - so HOURS are needed at a level 2.

Someone was supposed to meet us at the car, he didn't and we found him wondering around the rental garage. Car was dirty inside and out, AIR CONDITIONING didn't work and only found that out the next day when it was 95f outside. Literally miserable driving around in it. No directions to drop off in Fayetteville, NC. No pre inspection so i filmed everything to make sure i wasnt blamed for how dirty the car was, even AFTER i paid to run it through a car wash. You think covid times would ensure a clean inside but finger prints everywhere, on the screen, dirt in the back seat, just gross.

Pros:

Pickup in Fletcher was simply a disaster. No customer service, 60 minutes wait with only 3 other customers in front of us. Still Not sure if it was such poor lack of experience or inability to perform...? To top it of, attendant brings a car over for ‘easier’ access and brings the wrong car.

Cons:

Providing experienced employees or ones who are capable of performing simple tasks... Very very poor pickup experience.
