KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Middleton

  • With Middleton car rentals, you can rest assured of enjoying maximum exploration of the city. Rental vehicles give you freedom and flexibility to visit places of your choice, unlike public transportation, which offers slow journeys because of numerous local stops. You can see many tourist attractions far from the city when driving a rental car, including Noah’s Ark, approximately 39 miles north of the city, or Mirror Lake State Park, around 37 miles northwest of Middleton.
  • Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) is the main airport serving the city. You can rent a vehicle from several car rental agencies, including Alamo, Hertz, Budget, and National, located on the first floor near the baggage claim area. Free shuttle buses from the airport offer convenient services to the car rental offices. Though the car rental desks are near the airport terminal, consider booking in advance because you can experience long queues if rental vehicles are in demand.
  • Driving car rentals in Middleton can be challenging because the city doesn't specify whether jaywalking is legal or illegal. Therefore, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the road away from designated areas, posing a risk to them and the divers. This means you have to keep your eyes on the road and avoid distractions, such as using the phone or eating while driving to improve road safety. Again, DUI is heavily punishable in the city, and the legal blood alcohol concentration is 0.08.
  • Like other cities with medium populations, Middleton streets are affected by traffic during rush hours, especially in the mornings and evenings on weekdays. Heavy traffic mainly occurs between 7 am to 9 am. and between 7:45 pm and 9:30 pm. Avoid driving car rentals in Middleton on Highway 14 and Old Middleton Road during peak hours because you can get stuck in traffic. Therefore, plan your journey by researching alternative routes or starting your trip before rush hours.
  • Book your car hire in Middleton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Middleton are around 56% more expensive than other car types, on average

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

    Some roads in Middleton are narrow. Therefore, consider driving a small vehicle. Operating a small standard vehicle is easy because it's easy to navigate turns, overtake, and maintain high-speed limits. In addition, they are stable because they have a low center of gravity. However, choosing the best vehicle can be confusing. Thus, get help from the car rental agent to choose the best vehicle that meets your traveling needs.

  • What’s the speed limit in Middleton?

    Maintaining the required speed limit is crucial when driving car rentals in Middleton. When driving near highly populated areas on highways and county roads, the maximum speed limit is 55 mph. On the streets, the required speed limit is 65 mph. If driving in residential areas and business districts, the maximum speed limit is 25 mph. Violating the speed rules could lead to the payment of fines. That's why the city has speed limit signs to guide drivers on maximum speeds and traffic cameras to monitor drivers. The city aims to reduce accidents and improve road safety.

  • Where are the best places to park in Middleton?

    The best place to park is downtown Middleton because it offers several parking spaces. You can park on the streets, municipal parking lots, business parking lots, and garages. However, the charges vary from one parking lot to another. Therefore, consider the hourly rates before parking. On-street parking is almost everywhere downtown. However, beware of signage for reserved parking areas and time limitations. Municipal parking lots offer free parking but with time limitations. If you park at 7438 Hubbard Avenue in the west of City Hall, the parking limit is 4 hours and 2 hours on the west of the library. However, 7428 Terrace Avenue behind the library offers 24h parking limit.

Cons:

The person who rented the car to me neglected to tell me that they didn't have anyone available to drive me home after I returned the rental car on a Saturday morning. When I returned the car, the person behind the counter just said, "Oh, we don't have anyone on Saturdays."

Pros:

Staff was nice, Friendly and accommodating.

Cons:

When trying to contact the actual store, I got the reservation center. They were very pushy and said the size of vehicle was going to be at the location. When we got there, the vehicle size was not there. We wound up having to choose something else at the same price.

Hassel to get to, but that's all rentals at share. Once there, the pick-up/return could not have been more convenient or smooth. FAST!

Cons:

When I first arrived, I was told the minivan I rented had been sold. Then I was told he had to speak to the manager to see if he could find a minivan (which I needed to move my daughter out of her apartment). They "found" another minivan and it was filthy. Then I requested to be able to pay for tolls and they said this vehicle did not have that option. One would think that all rental vehicles would have that options. I then had to figure out how to attach the plate and pay for tolls on the highway to Illinois. I have rented vehicles from Hertz many times and this was not the best experience I have had.

I was denied my rental because both of my credit cards “did not have a UV watermark on it”. I have never heard of such a policy, and this was completely unclear to me prior to me booking the rental. I then asked my friend to pay for me because her card had this watermark, but was again denied since the card had to be in my name. So I thought I could book it in her name and add my license too it, but apparently, in order to add my license, they need to add my credit card as well, which, as described above, they apparently couldn’t take. So, I had no choice but to cancel my booking, call the third parter insurance provider to refund my policy plan, and now I am stuck in Madison, unable to return home for a fine print rule I never knew about. Or maybe I just don’t know how car rentals are supposed to work.

Pros:

The staff at pickup was overloaded. Fastbreak was very slow.

Cons:

Fastbreak could have been quicker. The car had a terrible Cigar odor that caused me an the passengers to feel sick to our stomachs. We had to periodically open the windows to try to mitigate the cigar smell and sick to stomach feeling. I'm requesting a credit towards a future car rental. Thank you.

Cons:

One thing is that is a must is to have a snow brush in the car during the winter. Sure enough the second day of renting we had a big snowfall with no way to clean the car other than our gloves! Budget- you need to do better!
