Pros:

Staff was good, truck was not

Cons:

Truck was well used and could have been cleaner inside. Inside had an odor to it. Alamo must have acquired this truck used and put it into service. I had a new Ford four door pickup rented from Hertz the week before and it was great. I thought I was getting a better deal with Alamo on the trip.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The ease of pick up.

Cons:

I rented a car two weeks ago to see my elderly mother in the hospital. A week later I had to return for her funeral as she passed away. The price of the rental was three times higher than it was when I rented from them the week before. The car was also dirty, and was definitely not cleaned to COVID standards. I had arrived late at night, so I did not have time to see the inside of the car until the next morning. I called the Hertz 1-800 number and they told me it was a Hertz Licensee Rental location and I would have to call the local number. I called and they told me the rates had gone up in the last week (almost 60%!?). Hertz also said they did not have a bereavement policy. On the call, I told the employee about the car being dirty and he said they would check into it. I never received a call back from Hertz. When I returned the car on April 17 two employees were behind the counter. They told me the same thing about the price increase, and when I told them about the interior of the car being dirty they both said "oh I know who that was". Evidently, there had been several complaints recently regarding the cleanliness of their cars, and all the complaints had been cleaned by the same employee. I continued my check out and left to catch my flight home. I would like to thank the two employees who checked me out as they both told me their condolences. They were also helpful in making notes in the computer regarding my complaint. I do realize there was nothing they could do, as neither was the owner.

KAYAK

Pros:

Short line even without standing in Gold line. Low mileage modern car as upgrade when compact sedan not available. Simple return process too.

Cons:

Chevy Malibu upgrade when compact sedan not available was acceptable (no other sedans available). Just not my preferred brand/model.

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was friendly and the pick up was quick and easy. When we got to the car we found they gave us an upgrade for no extra cost. Must have been what they had available at the time.

Cons:

Everything went smoothly. The price was higher than we would have preferred, but that was because we picked up in Rapid City and dropped off in Sioux Falls. The price was lower through Kayak than directly with Hertz. It couldn't have been easier though at both ends.

Cons:

There was a mileage limit that was so low that I would not be able to complete my planned activities. They were quite willing to sell me a higher mileage rate, but the original mileage restriction was not advertised (to my recollection), so I did not have an option but to add this fee. If I had this knowledge sooner I may have reserved with a different company.

Vehicle was filthy when I picked it up, I never got a receipt when I checked out and very disorganized process for renting. Keys lying all over the counter and staff acts like it’s their first day on the job trying to find your records and navigate the computer. Also pricing was not what was quoted on website.

Staff could of been more familiar with the additional insurance sold on the web site. They told me it didn't cover an additional driver, which is why I purchased it through you rather then budget.

Pros:

The car was a very smooth ride and drove very well. Was very handy to have the two extra seats in the back that made it comfortable for 6.

Cons:

They were not very good at explaining all the extra charges associated with the insurance and gas options which cause my rental to wind up being almost double the original quoted price.

Top tips for hiring a car in Rapid City

  • There is plenty to discover in and around Rapid City and the best way to ensure you get to see everything is by renting a car during your stay. The city has various places of interest like the Dinosaur Park, Skyline Wilderness Park, or Watiki Waterpark, but, being nestled next to various major national parks, it is also the perfect base for extended walks and hikes. With their own hire car, travelers are guaranteed maximum freedom to explore everything on their wish list.
  • There is a regional airport (RAP) east of the city and it features various onsite car hire agencies, so the easiest way to start your time in Rapid City is by picking up a car right there. Internationally acclaimed agencies like Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise offer their vehicles for travelers, and with a car you will be in Rapid City in approximately twenty minutes via the SD-44 W.
  • Driving in and around Rapid City during the winter can be adventurous, as the cold season can bring plenty of snow to the mountainous region. It is imperative to prepare for driving on snowy and icy roads when visiting in winter. First of all, ensure there are the appropriate tires on your hire car and consider renting additional snow chains if weather conditions are severe. Adjusting your speed and slowing down are important aspects when driving in wintery conditions, and remember to switch on your headlights so other cars can see you better.
  • Like every city, Rapid City has certain times in which traffic increases and main arterial roads can be clogged up. If possible, avoid driving through the city during the morning rush hour between 7 and 9 am and the evening rush hour from 5 to 8pm. Especially the I-190 and I-90 can face severe traffic increase during these times, with commuters coming in and out of Rapid City.
  • Book your car hire in Rapid City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hires in Rapid City are around 72% cheaper than other car types, on average
