KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Muscatine

  • Car rentals in Muscatine have the key benefit of more flexibility and convenience when exploring different parts of the city. Unlike limited public transport, a rental car allows easy access to offroad attractions like Pine Creek Grist Mill, Wildcat Den State Park, Mississippi Riverfront, and Weed Park, among others. With a car, day trips to nearby places like the Amana Colonies or Herbert Hoover National Historic Site become effortless, creating a more personalized travel experience. It is cheaper to rent a car than to hire taxis each time you want to visit different sites.
  • Quad City International Airport (MLI), which is 65 miles away, is the main airport serving Muscatine. This airport is one of the best pickup locations for Muscatine car rentals. At MLI, car rental companies such as Avis, Enterprise, and Budget are located in the public terminal inside exits 6 and 7 on the east end, near baggage claim. Checking rental policies, booking in advance, and having a valid driver's license and credit card are essential. Although Muscatine lacks an airport, the proximity of MLI offers travelers an easier way to secure and access rental cars for their journey.

Follow speed limits and be cautious on rural roads where farm equipment might be present. Overall, courteous driving, adherence to traffic rules, and awareness of local conditions will ensure a safe and pleasant journey in Muscatine.

Gas hog. Was supposed to have full size car, not Jeep which got less than 30 mpg. Neither USB port worked, using my phone's GPS used all my phone battery before arrival at my destination. Tried to stop at 2 Hertz locations in Dayton, neither had a clue what to do to fix it. One offered to switch vehicles but would take another hour. Couldn't do that or I would be late to my destination.

When returning my car, I had to wait in line for 25 mins. I couldn't wait any longer as I had to check in so left the keys and paperwork with the desk rep. She said she would email me my receipt but I have received nothing. I tried calling customer service but no one was able to help me.

Cons:

arrived at front counter and no one was there. I asked a rep from another car rental company if they knew where the employee was and they told me she was outside SMOKING. After a bit of a wait the employee came in from the outside and helped me but never apologized for being outside smoking.

Pros:

Reservationing car online was simple and painless. Picking up the car and returning the car we’re both a breeze. The car would not start after stopping the first time. A call to Budget and a mechanic was sent to us immediately. They drove us back to the airport and quickly provided a replacement vehicle.

Cons:

The fact that our first car experienced an electrical problem soon after picking it up was an irritant. However, we were still local to the airport and Budget responded quickly and appropriately.

The process was super easy and the staff made me feel comfortable.

Cons:

The cars really could be cleaned better considering what is going on. I was assured when checking in that the car would be thoroughly cleaned but it was clear that it wasn’t. The interior was covered with dirt on the dashboard and the car smelled like smoke.
