However, having a convenient means of transport to help you explore the city's heartwarmingly stunning attractions is a godsend feel.

With your car rentals in Shelbyville, you can have a trip to White Hall State Historic Site, 52 miles from the city center, Freeman Lake Park, 50 miles, or Camp at the Frontier Heritage Campground, 54 miles away.

Pros:

Nothing- enterprise was a nightmare. I had to end up canceling and going to Hertz next day and they were amazing

Cons:

They did not have the car in stock that I reserved so they sent me to another location the second location also did not have the car in stock but the person offered to give me a pick up truck for an additional 150 more. I did not want a pick up truck and the agent got nasty with me and told me that he wasn’t a part of the other location.They did not have the car in stock that I reserved so they sent me to another location the second location also did not have the car in stock but the person offered to give me a pick up truck for an additional 150 more.

Pros:

Car was great, employees were friendly and good at their job.

Cons:

Their weekend hours are really SHORT...and they are short of staff. They will gladly give you a ride home, but it only leaves one person at the desk..which results in lines.

Pros:

The car was clean and a nice vehicle.

Cons:

The car was not ready for us at the designated time. Then the attendant said they did not have one at all. After several hours she found one at another site. All this caused stress and delayed our vacation by more than 5 hours. Then the price was even higher than originally quoted not a single discount for my inconvenience or their confusion.

Pickup time was Sunday at 12 noon. Arrived 12:02. Guy said we closed at 12 and wouldn’t give me rental. Customer service sent me to another location guaranteeing vehicle. Drove to this location to find no rental to meet 7 passengers. Drive to inconvenient third Budget location and had to pay more. Needless to say, extremely late to destination because lazy worker at first location would not give me the keys. He was very rude as well. Pathetic customer service. I will never rent from Budget/Avis again.

Budget called me at 10:30am (1.5 hrs before pick up) and let me know they didn’t think they’d have the kind of van I needed, that I reserved. I had to call 2 more times for updates , they didn’t call me. And I gave up. I never received a cancellation or a call to let me know they weren’t able to provide my reservation.

Pros:

The car was clean

Cons:

I typically rent from Enterprise, which allows you to bring the car back with less than a full tank. They only charge $2 a gallon. Through Budget, I wasn't offered a choice on whether I wanted to fill it up or let them fill it for a set price. I returned it with half a tank, and they charged $10 a gallon. Wow
