KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mechanicsburg

  • Getting a car from one of the car rentals in Mechanicsburg is one of the best decisions you can make when visiting the city. The city's major roads were designed and planned for personal driving, and public transportation in the city is severely lacking, with slow and inefficient service. A rental car is unquestionably the best way to efficiently explore the town. You can learn more about the city's natural history by driving a few miles to the Oakes Museum of National History. You can also drive a few miles out of town to the Williams Grove Speedway to watch the famous speed car races with fireworks.
  • You can quickly get a rental car upon landing at Harrisburg International Airport, the primary airport serving Mechanicsburg. The airport is served by major car rental companies such as Avis, Alamo, Budget, and Enterprise, all of which have a counter in the Ground Transportation Center of the airport's main Terminal. The attendants at your preferred car rental agency will direct you to the agency's free shuttle bus that will ferry you to the off-airport car rental facility.
  • When driving your rental car in Mechanicsburg, watch out for jaywalkers and dare-devil cyclists who may cross the streets suddenly. Also, watch out for traffic lights, as most are outfitted with cameras to catch reckless and overspeeding drivers. It is important to note that the city occasionally experiences winter storms. Snow and ice can quickly cover roads, so plan accordingly if you visit during the year's colder months. If you are unsure about your ability to handle snow and ice, drive cautiously and check the weather forecast frequently to avoid being caught off guard by a storm.
  • When driving your Mechanicsburg car rental, you should not be concerned about traffic jams, though some roads leading into and out of the city can become congested during rush hour. On work days, you can expect rush hour to begin around 6:30 am and end around 9:00 am. The afternoon rush hour is less severe, beginning around 4:30 pm and ending shortly after 6:30 pm. When driving on the city's outskirts during these times, try to avoid the Capital Beltway.
  • Book your car hire in Mechanicsburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Mechanicsburg are around -79% cheaper than other car types, on average

The staff at the Enterprise location in Camp Hill were very friendly and professional. The van was ready when I arrived, the rental agent was very thorough in his walk around during the checkout process. The check in was fast and efficient. I would definitely rent from them again when the need arises.

Cons:

The cancelation could have been much easier. I will not rent online again. There were too many fingers in the reservation which in turn made the return way more complicated than it should've been.

Pros:

The staff were friendly, and the car we got was a great car (I'm not into cars at all, so it is rare for me to say that). We were going to return our rental about an hour past the time we picked it up. Technically that counts as a third day, but the staff member said she would save us some money and charge us for only two days — we certainly appreciated that.

Cons:

The wait time was a bit long, but I think they were especially busy that day because of a storm the day before that had damaged a number of cars in the area. But they were staying cool and friendly under pressure, so not much for me to complain about.

Cons:

The condition of the vans should be better. The van hired by me just could not speed up to the moving traffic. I had to force speed it. Yet was not enough.

The car which was a Dodge Charger GT, Was clean, except for the windows , I cleaned the outside, But all the interior glass was dirty.... I mean VERY dirty.. Possibly the previous renter was a smoker,, Or it was a product of Vinyl, oxydation from the Black vinyl, and cloth interior. The car was VERY fast accellarating, Had Great brakes, and delivered decent fuel mileage. NO OWNERS MANUEL ??? Finding operating procedures, and control functions, was a problem.. Tom
