KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Trussville

  • One of the biggest advantages of car rentals in Trussville is that you can easily see amazing spots like the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, which showcases an impressive collection of vintage motorcycles and vehicles, as well as the Birmingham Botanical Gardens that include Japanese gardens, rose gardens, and more. The gardens are a short drive from Trussville. The beauty of a rental car is that you can go to these spots without relying on expensive taxis or rideshare vehicles or on somewhat limited public transportation options.
  • If you would like to pick up Trussville car rentals at an airport location, the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) will be your best choice in this area. This airport offers the benefit of having around eight companies offering rental services here. All these companies have a service counter in the baggage claim area, Section 1B of the airport. Once you have your keys, you will find that all vehicles for rent sit right outside the exit adjacent to the baggage claim.
  • All passengers car rentals in Trussville must always wear seat belts. Failure to do so can result in fines. If you're traveling with children, make sure to comply with child safety seat regulations. In Alabama, using a handheld mobile phone while driving is illegal. When a school bus stops with red lights flashing and signs extended, traffic in both directions must completely stop. In Alabama, unless otherwise posted, you are generally allowed to make a right turn on red after coming to a complete stop and ensuring it's safe to do so.
  • Some of the main roads you will find in Trussville include Chalkville Road (Highway 11), which is one of the major roads in Trussville, running north-south through the city. North Chalkville Road is a continuation of Chalkville Road and extends further north, connecting Trussville to other nearby areas. These roads can be extremely busy during rush hour periods from around 7am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm.
  • Book your car hire in Trussville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Staff both departing and returning were great. Needed Suv and was given as promised

Cons:

The only negative was there were no floor mats or paper sheet covers for the interior floorboard. The place I was going was rural and muddy, so I had to constantly lay down towels or garbage bags to keep the interior floor carpet clean.

In my opinion, I would not recommend to anyone a different car rental place than Avis. I dealt with enterprise a lot They don't care about your opinion. And they try to nickel and dine you to death Also, they try to blittle you. They make you feel uncomfortable and at.Avis, always had the better deals. Cleaner cars and great staff.

Pros:

Drop off was quick but it looked like both the workers at the booth wanted to be anywhere other then there.

Cons:

It took awhile to pick up the car because the front desk was understaffed. The vehicle smelled heavily of smoke the interior driver and passenger side doors where cut up and the seats were stained and filthy. The front windshield had two big chips in it and there were scratches all over the vehicle. Lastly, someone took the floor mats out of the vehicle and never returned them. I will NEVER RENT FROM AVIS AGAIN and I strongly suggest you don’t either.

Picked up a Camry initially, but we knew within a few minutes we would have to return it. Strong tire vibration left us feeling unsafe for our upcoming road trip. Dealt with tired employees and a lot of back & forth before finally finding a good replacement. It took about 2 hours off our journey so we were off to a late start. Replacement car was just fine, but windshield wipers were so loud. Both cars could've been cleaned better. Drop off was okay but felt bad for stressed and overworked employee who handled it.

Cons:

It was not clear to me that there was an offsite Budget, who I actually rented from, and a onsite at the airport Budget. The man in charge was very helpful to honor what I had and made clear that it would be $5 more per day. Which was fine.

There aren’t Payless parking spots at BHM airport, so I parked it in an Enterprise spot upon returning. When I returned the keys to the Payless desk, the employee asked why I didn’t park it in the Avis section. Like wtf, get your own parking spaces or tell me to return to an Avis spot when I pick up

The wait for a car would have been 2 hours. There were no cars available, I had a reservation but that did not matter. Employees not truthful! I completed the initial paper work that included paying A security deposit if 500 dollars. I CANCELLED MY RESERVATION AND WENT TO AVIS THAT WAS 10 STEPS TO THE LEFT OF HERTZ FRONT COUNTER. Berminham Airport. You have morons working for you. This is your review and do not contact me, if you do I will expose you on social media and start a campaign of ni or using Hertz

The man at the service desk for the pickup was extremely friendly and personable, and the only reason I didn’t feel entirely cheated by my experience.

Cons:

There is no mention of the additional security deposit at any point prior to making the reservation, even if you pay for the vehicle ahead of time, and they will attempt to force you into paying a cancellation fee if you’re unable to cover the surprise $200 deposit. Make purchasers aware, before wasting their time.
