KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Waterville

  • Using car rentals in Waterville offers unparalleled flexibility and convenience. It allows you to explore the city and its scenic surroundings at your own pace, visiting attractions off the beaten path. Unlike public transportation, a rental car provides the freedom to set your own itinerary and timetable. Plus, it's ideal for group travel, ensuring comfort and cost-efficiency. With Waterville car rentals, you can visit areas like the stunning Belgrade Lakes, offering serene natural beauty, explore the Colby College Museum of Art for a cultural experience, and take a scenic drive along the Kennebec River Rail Trail.
  • When you fly to Waterville, you'll likely land at Augusta Airport (AUG), about 18 miles away. Augusta Airport (AUG) hosts several car rental companies that can hire you a car to explore the beautiful town of Waterville and its surroundings. After your arrival, please proceed to the baggage claim area, and you'll see the car rental desks of the various car rental companies. After registration, you can take your vehicle keys and rental agreement and be directed to where to pick up your car, which is about 50 yards from the terminal.
  • Using car rentals in Waterville is an unforgettable experience. Driving in this city is typically characterized by a calm and relaxed style. Most drivers in this city tend to be courteous and respectful of traffic rules. While you may encounter occasional jaywalkers and bicycles, they are not overly prevalent.

Driving in Waterville is generally straightforward, focusing on safe and considerate driving practices.

Routes like Kennedy Memorial Drive and Main Street can experience congestion during these times. Winters bring snow and ice, making road conditions hazardous. It's advisable to be cautious and prepared for slippery roads. While the city generally has a relaxed driving style, being mindful of changing weather conditions and peak traffic hours will contribute to a safer and more pleasant driving experience.

Pros:

Deliv ring from ship to car rental place

Cons:

Only one worker and she was so swamped that drop off was long wait until she said just leave key and she would do it and stay after hours to check us in. It was no her fault. She did ev rethink as fast and quick just 6 people checking in cars and getting back to ship was a nightmare for her. Company should provide more workers the few days cruise ship is in port.

The experience with the entire Enterprise team was excellent. Joe and Vince were extremely knowledgeable and were able to really breakdown the agreement and options in detail for me. They also were available to reach out to should any issues arise with my rental during my rental period. Trenton also did excellent work in servicing the car prior to my rental and it was in pristine condition. I would also say the team went above and beyond and also were able to help me with getting to the airport for my flight home. I would absolutely rent from this Enterprise (Augusta, ME) location again!

Cons:

When we picked the car up, it had no washer fluid in it at all. The weather was snowy and there was dirt from the roads, making the car dangerous to operate until we were able to find a gas station to fill it up on our own (it took the entire gallon of washer fluid; tank was bone dry when we got the car).

Pros:

Positives- They answered the phone and were willing to talk to me the next day when I called to complain. They weren't willing to help me in any way, but they were willing to talk and explain the situation.

Cons:

Negatives- It's a long story, but the one sentence summary is I never even got to rent my car and had to take a $100 cab to Camden. I would not recommend using Hertz. I was scheduled to arrive just after 6 on a Cape Air flight. I indicated in the reservation that I'd be there at 6, because I've never before encountered a situation where it was crucially important to be right on the nose in that department. However, I also didn't include my flight info in the reservation. That part is my fault and apparently if I had done that, this could have been avoided. Still, I'm pissed about how everything transpired. The flight was late and landed at 7. I get off the plane and immediately see that the Hertz desk is closed. I check online and see that they close at 6. That's a problem. I check with the Cape Air desk--they say that a different Cape Air employee probably has the keys. When there's an after-hours pickup, that's how it's handled. Great. I check with that person--nope, sorry, no keys were left with her today. Oof. I try calling Hertz's national 1-800 number to get help. That's 10 minutes I'd rather have spent doing anything else. Totally worthless. I leave an angry note on the Hertz desk asking them to call me the next day and get a cab. (As an aside, Cape Air helped me get that cab, and they were really helpful about it. I really appreciated that.) It cost $100 to get to my destination, Camden, plus I no longer had a car to use to get around Camden during my stay. I didn't get a call from Hertz in the morning, of course, so I waited until the afternoon and called them. They did acknowledge they saw the note and apologized for not calling back. They said that because I didn't include my flight info (my fault, I acknowledge) in the reservation and had scheduled it for a time when they were open, they didn't leave the keys with the Cape Air people because they "thought it was an in-town reservation." First of all, how many reservations from non-Cape Air passengers do they get? I doubt it's very many. More importantly though, I had said I'd be there at 6 in the reservation, and they close at 6. They said if I had indicated I'd be there at 7, the reservation would have told me they'd be closed and would have required me to input flight info. That makes sense, but why doesn't the reservation require that if you say you'll be there literally at the minute they close? That's more of a Hertz corporate complaint than a complaint about this location, but still. What a dumb system. The reservation didn't even have the location's hours on it. How hard would it have been for them to print a contract and leave the keys with Cape Air, assuming I'd be on that late flight? Probably not very hard, and if I had no-showed (which could happen whether I'm an in-town rental or I'm on Cape Air and missed my flight), I'm sure they could have just canceled the contract. Instead they did nothing, and I was left holding the bag.

Pros:

I saw the manager (I think his name was Andy) run to get every car so the customers didn't have to wait which really surprised and impressed me. that meant my total wait time to get the rental car was minimum. They drive me to where I needed to go without complaint and I just felt like a well taken care of customer with the staff.

Cons:

Nothing. I've been to Hertz before in CA that didn't fill the tank up all the way which was annoying to try to match but I was happy and relieved that the tank was totally full when I picked the car up in Augusta.
