KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Rockford

  • If you plan to visit Michigan, consider getting Rockford car rentals to explore and discover many places when you get there. The city is culturally rich and manifests prestigious outdoors. With car rentals in Rockford, you can conveniently drive to the White Pine Trail State Park, Rockford Dam Overlook, Myers Lake Park, and St. Julian Winery. Although you can utilize public transportation, you are limited to places you can visit since buses and trains operate on preset schedules and routes, making driving a sure way to explore several places on your vacation.
  • Multiple airports serve flights to Rockford, including Gerald R. Ford International Airport (GRR), Muskegon County Airport (MKG), and Capital Region International Airport (LAN). They’re about 21, 44, and 70 miles from the city center, respectively. The car rental desks at MKG are in the airport terminal building across from the baggage claim. Travelers landing at GRR can find car rental counters inside the airport terminal at the Arrivals level near the baggage claim area.

  • Rockford is a small city in Michigan. Therefore, finding narrow roads and tiny streets when driving your car rentals in Rockford is unsurprising. Nevertheless, driving should be manageable with attention to detail. The city has several sharp corners and many intersections. Slow down when approaching roundabouts, intersections, and corners. Allow adequate space when negotiating corners for clear views. As a family-friendly and photogenic city, you will likely find several people adventuring the city on foot. Drive cautiously to keep pedestrians safe.

Ensure to pick a vehicle with effective tires. During precipitation and snowfalls, your vision and that of other drivers are reduced. Drive with your headlights on even during the day to improve your vision. Communicate your intentions clearly to other drivers.

Pros:

There was no one there at drop-off. We had to write down our mileage and go inside for to the rental office. We wanted a final statement but he said he would email it. 27 hours later, we still don't have it.

Cons:

Do NOT give other locations if a person requests the airport rental. We rented from a down town agency without our knowledge. Didnt find out until our flight was delayed and we called to notify them and found out they closed at 5:00pm. Very worrisome and costly to have it changed last minute. NOT GOOD!!

Pros:

They called me at 8 am stating that they had no cars available and that every single location in Grand Rapids also had no cars available

Cons:

I appreciate the call but I’m confused as to why their website said they had cars available if they didn’t.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was good for my needs

Cons:

I requested an airport rental when I searched and when I went to the Enterprise desk at the airport I was told that it was off site. When I asked if they could come close to the rate it would have doubled. I had to take a $22 Uber to get the off site location. Of course I had missed that this was off site rental, but I would think Kayak could have highlighted that fact when reserving since my search was for an airport rental. This way the customer agrees to and it calls attention to it.

Since we booked with Kayak for the GRR airport we assumed the car would be at the airport. The car was offsite at a location with no shuttle which also closed at noon which was when our flight arrived. After standing in line at the airport desk for 20-30 minutes the clerk told us we had 20 minutes to make it to the other site before it closed... they were off by an hour. So after taking a cab to and back from the closed site we had to rebook a car. Which made us late to our destination. Which made me look irresponsible. Pretty bad experience all around.

It was fine, the office there is a bit rough and untidy.

Cons:

Advertised as smoke-free cars. Car smelled profusely of cigarette smoke. When asked to change for a different vehicle, customer rep apologized, but said nothing else was available. Reserved a midsize auto and was given an SUV which doubled my gas expense. Vehicle was in need of an oil change and ran out of windshield wiper fluid (alerts went off within a day of picking up my week ling rental.) Company did offer a small discount and were apologetic upon return of vehicle when I spoke to the manger.

Pros:

I arrived before the rental center opened to pick up my vehicle, which was reserved several days ahead of time. I was to pick up at the 9 am opening. I was told by the counter person my vehicle was not there yet, and I would need to wait. She was very nice, to be clear. Then, after waiting for 20 minutes, I was told by the same woman that my car (a special 12-passenger van needed that day for a family trip) could not be found, and no one at any Avis ops center could help, and/or did not return her calls or texts. I continued to wait while she made calls as line volume permitted. She finally learned that the previous renter had not returned the vehicle and I would have to wait until at least 11. I asked for a substitution and got little help, so I walked down the street to Enterprise and they had the vehicle I was looking for, with a price match. After a 90 minute wait that meant missing other pickup appointments and delaying my family’s trip for nearly two hours, I was on my way - with a van from a competitor. Thanks for nothing, Avis. I will be going down the street to Enterprise from now on.

Cons:

Pretty much everything.

Pros:

A complete joke, I was unable to get my vehicle because I was LIED TO over the phone. I verified over the phone that I would be able to pick up the bricks despite being under 25, where I was reassured I could still get it due to waived rules because of covid. Because of this I did not get my vehicle and was late for the next bout of traveling for my vacation. Absolutely no remorse from employees at store as well. Will NEVER recommend.

Cons:

Don’t LIE OVER THE PHONE TO DRAW CUSTOMERS IN.
