I want aware that I couldn't use a debit card at that location. Had to drive all the way home and back to get a credit card. Lots of construction and traffic. Wasted an hour of time. Very inconvenient. That information should be BIG AND BOLD online.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car drove smoothly.

Cons:

We were already on our way to pick up the car at one location when we received a call that that location was closed and we had to pick up at a different one that was farther away. We should have been notified much sooner, as we were needing to get on the road for our trip. At this new location, the Kalamazoo airport, they only had one person working and it was "here. here's your keys." We quickly that the car had not been cleaned between rentals, as there were crumbs in the car, dust on the dashboard, two bags of chips in the glove compartment, and the WORST part was that it was very obvious whoever rented it last had smoked something in the car. It STUNK. We did not have time to return to the airport to see about a different car, as we were already behind schedule with having to pick up at a different location, and need to get on the road to make it to our appointment in another state. We also didn't have an employee walk around the car with us, checking it out, so we were concerned we would be charged for the nick in the windshield or other scratches and dents that we noticed right away. What could have been done better? Having more than one person working at the rental counter, having the car cleaned (especially when it STUNK) and finding out we needed to go to a different location sooner. Finding out ten to fifteen minutes before pick up, when you've already left home, is not good enough.

Cons:

The van was dirty when I picked it up, both inside and outside. I found a used water bottle in the door compartment. I swept hair bands and metal screws and dirt off the floor of the cargo area. The side cargo door rattled the entire time. Because the door did not close properly, the van was cold even when the heater was running full blast. The clerk had told me the vans had been used hard by Amazon. I expected a better vehicle than I received.

Cons:

I used a car from Florida, so when I used it in the winter in Michigan, the wiper fluid was unusable because it was frozen. I think thorough consideration of environment should be consideration with all aspects of the vehicle

Pros:

Great price. Effective little car that did what it needed to do. I appreciated the ice/snow scraper included.

Cons:

The windows either were or got hard to see through very quickly and the squirts didn’t make that better. I finally just poured water over it and that helped.

The staff were very friendly

Cons:

The car that we rented was turned around so quickly, that the cleaning crew missed an obvious spill in the back. As our trip went on & the car sat out in the sun, a rotten milk smell began to consume the car. When we arrived in Wisconsin, we went to an Enterprise there & the kind young man offered to deodorize the car & immediately discovered the spillage spot. He offered to trade the car out the following day, however, when we went back, there were no cars available. He contacted another Enterprise who had a car available, however, we opted to keep the car versus driving to the other rental office as we only had a couple of days left & the odor had decreased.

Pros:

The car was super clean and had all of the amenities that an out of towner would need. The service in Kalamazoo was super fast and easy. The service professional was very friendly and communicated well. She did however tell me that she was positive driving from Kalamazoo to Detroit would need half a tank of gas so, per her advice, I pre-purchased the half tank of gas. I actually used not even 1/8 of the tank. But the good news is that the professional at drop off in Detroit verified my gas use and refunded me the rest!

Pros:

Type of minivan (Toyota sienna with eighth seat option); comfort; customer service; friendliness of staff

Cons:

Car wasn't fully clean at pickup. Smelled like a smoker had rented previously. Was not informed of disabled auto side doors on van until midway through week long rental (turns out there is a recall that wasn't fixed yet-- would have been nice to know doors wouldn't work when signing off on rental). Key fob stoppped working midweek. Had to call roadside assistance to get car fixed.

Top tips for hiring a car in Kalamazoo

  • If speed and ease are a priority when traveling to Kalamazoo, consider renting a vehicle from car rentals in Kalamazoo. When traveling to a new city, nothing beats being able to explore at your own pace and access any part of the city without having to rely on others. A car will let you get the most out of your trip by getting you where you want to go at your own convenience. Besides, having a car ensures safety, and if you're traveling in a group, you can save a lot by using one car together. The flexibility of being able to head out as far as North Pier Brewing Company, about 50 miles away, in under an hour cannot be overlooked.
  • The Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport houses a car rental counter in the baggage claim area, which you'll find after disembarking at the terminal. There are several Kalamazoo car rentals to choose from, including National, Enterprise, Hertz, and Budget. For a smoother trip and to ensure you don't spend too much time at the airport, you can reserve your car of choice through KAYAK. Once you arrive at the airport, you'll only have to pick up your key at the car rental counter and drive off to Kalamazoo.
  • Kalamazoo city is one place where you have to watch out for jaywalkers. The city is so notorious for this that at some point, the police department had to install a crackdown to prevent more pedestrian accidents. Yield to pedestrians at crosswalks and avoid illegal turns. You should also make sure to stop at stop signs before the crosswalk. Be wary of cyclists as well.
  • Rush-hour traffic starts around 7am and gets really heavy by 8am, then slows down by 9am. The evening rush hour is typically from 6pm to 7pm. Interstate 94 and Highway 131, in particular, can be congested during rush hours. Some of the streets in Kalamazoo can also get jammed at times. During the rainy season, expect to find some flooding in downtown Kalamazoo caused by the Kalamazoo River, and during the winter season, expect snow and icy roads when cruising through the city.
  • Book your car hire in Kalamazoo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hires in Kalamazoo are around -116% cheaper than other car types, on average
