KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Virginia Beach

  • Ditch the crowded public transportation and jump into a hire car, which is the most comfortable way to explore both Virginia Beach and its surrounding areas. A car will allow you to freely explore the coastal area and some of the city's best parks, such as First Landing State Park and Neptune's Park. Drive your hire car to nearby Norfolk to see the USS Wisconsin, plus the city of Richmond is only 45 minutes away.
  • All the major car hire companies can be found at Norfolk International Airport (ORF), which is approximately 30 minutes away from Virginia Beach. The car hire desks are located in the Arrivals Hall, which is on the Level 1 of the terminal. Many counters operate from early in the day (4:30 a.m.) until late at night (1 a.m.). Vehicle pickup is on Level G, and hire car return is on Level 2.
  • Virginia Beach is pretty straightforward to navigate, and the best time to visit (weather-wise) is from June to August. That's also peak season, however, so be prepared to find lots of tourists and generally more people on the roads. Two-way traffic must also keep to its side of the road, as a general rule. Drinking driving laws are strict, with the maximum blood alcohol limit being 0.08.
  • Morning rush hour usually takes place between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., and evening rush hour happens between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. The evening peak hour may start slightly earlier around the shipyard and naval base as workers get off around 3:30 p.m. The Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel (HRBT) connects the Virginia Beach area to the north side of Hampton Roads, which is where most traffic jams happen, so plan your trip accordingly.
  • Book your car hire in Virginia Beach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Nothing at all. Unacceptable and unprofessional.

Cons:

We received a confirmation with location to pick up the car. When we arrived the rep stated that they didnt have the reservation and the site we booked it through was not legitimate. My husband showed her the information amd she stated it was not a reservation. They ended up sending us to another enterprise and made us pay 140.00 more. We had no choice as we were traveling with children for a youth tournament and needed transportation. Unacceptable.

I thought I was renting a full size car. My pick up time was Friday at 6pm, but they close at 6pm so not sure why they would allow me to schedule that time. I called them Friday May 5 around 3 or 3:30pm to see if I could come early and was told that they did not have a full size car at that time. I arrived around 530-545pm. They still didn't have a full size car, the gentleman took me outside to a 2016 Nissan Rogue, he told me it was an upgrade. I was disappointed because I was traveling and really wanted a trunk. I currently own a 2015 Nissan Rogue and the one I rented didn't have half the stuff my 2015 has. This was a base model all the way around no upgrades. I was supposed to return the car Sunday May 14, but I was so dissatisfied, I took it back Saturday morning, May 13 at 9am, when they were supposed to open. Well myself and another gentleman waited outside for about 15 minutes when the lady finally arrived. She walked right by us and did not say a word. She never spoke or greeted us never apologized for her tardiness. Once we were inside she asked what we were here for we replied drop off. She took the keys went and looked at the cars came back and gave us a receipt. This was my first rental with HERTZ, I normally use Enterprise but decided to give HERTZ a try. NEVER AGAIN, ENTERPRISE HERE I COME!!!

Third time in a row and across multiple agencies as well as heard the same from coworkers. Car was filthy, full of human and pet hair, dog slime, sticky seats and console, trash in the compartments and my son found a large knife in the overhead as we were driving it home!! then 10 hours of everyone miserable due to allergic response to all the pet dander in the cab. All after booking the car for a noon pickup only to find out that the agency closed at noon, then had to rebook to pickup at the airport making us late, then they could not take a debit card and said that my refund for the first booking will take up to three weeks! Horrible experience, I have to rent again for this weekend, not sure what I am going to do.

It was terrible, the customer service was poor. Our car broke down and they wouldn’t compensate us with a new one. Our reservation got screwed up so they said we had to rent a whole new car instead of just doing a vehicle exchange. Me receipt said jan 13 - jan 17 but for some reason the customer service reps kept saying that the vehicle was due on jan 14 and although I showed them my receipt with the proper information, they made us pay for a new car. And on top of that, they were rude as can be. This was the worst car rental experience of my life. I’m never using Avis again.

1) The car needed new wiper blades and it was hard to see in the rain due to bad streaking on the windshield. 2) All the glass on the inside was dirty and had a hazy film on it.
