KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Windham

  • With an array of historic buildings and outdoor recreational opportunities to explore, Windham, ME, has plenty of charm. You can experience outdoor activities at parks like Tassel Top Park, Maine Wildlife Park, and Sebago Lake State Park. You can also study at Windham Public Library or shop at North Windham Shopping Center. Overall, Windham has something for everyone keen to explore and uncover new things on vacation. However, you should get Windham car rentals to explore several places. While you can utilize public transportation, you will likely be limited to places you can visit, as they operate on fixed routes.
  • Multiple airports serve flights to Windham. Portland International Jetport (PWM), Augusta State Airport (AUG), and Portsmouth International Airport at Pease (PSM) are the nearest, about 15, 55, and 67 miles from the city center, respectively. If you land at PWM, the car rental desks are in a designated area near the airport garage. It is connected to the airport and has an accessible walkway. The car rental counters at AUG are in the Arrivals Hall across from the baggage claim. Those landing at PSM can find car rental counters near the baggage claim. You will find agencies like Thrifty, Avis, Budget, Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise.
  • As a small southern Maine city, finding narrow roads and one-way streets in Windham is not uncommon. Nevertheless, driving should be manageable in the city, but it requires you to remain attentive. The city has many roundabouts and sharp corners. Also, driving your car rentals while keeping pedestrians safe can be challenging. Pay attention to know when you should slow down, especially when approaching intersections, roundabouts, and thickly inhabited areas. Remain sober, as the city implements a zero-tolerance policy on drinking and driving.
  • Windham averages 74 inches of snow yearly. Driving during winter can be challenging due to wet roads, precipitation, and snowfall. Wet roads lower the traction between the vehicle's tires and the road surface. Vehicles can easily veer off the roads. Precipitation and snowfall cause fog that compromises your vision and that of other drivers. When visiting during snowy periods, drive carefully to remain safe. For instance, ensure you pick a vehicle with effective tires for added grip. Also, be sure to have adequate wiper fluid while also making sure that the windshield wipers work as they should.
  • Book your car hire in Windham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Windham are around 20% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

I got the last car available and the interior had a strong smell of gas for the entire duration of the trip. I had to drive with the windows rolled down and no one from Enterprise answered the phone while trying to connect with them and ask if I could exchange the car during the trip from Portland to Bar Harbor.

Cons:

A real person answering the phone and/or calling me back.

Pros:

The staff I saw were nice. THere was no one there when I left with the car, and there was a problem. There was something wrong with the driver's side door, and there was no one to talk with about it. I just left because it was late and I was tired.

Cons:

For $100 per day, give me a car that is perfect. That was way too expensive for a car with a door that sounded like it would break off every time I opened it.

I used my Apple Credit card. It changed card number every month. You should know that. Hertz personel wanted same card number. I already paid but my card number changed. It took 1 hour. I had to call costumer service and change my credit card number. If you don’t accept Apple Credit card, I could use another card. You didn’t!

Really poor. Was going to be placed in an EV which is not what I ordered since I was going to a little town with no charging stations. Had to move from a small size SUV to crappy sedan and pay extra $50/ day for it. I’m very unhappy about this reservation all around. Sedan car was horrible, smelled of barf and smoke.

In spite of Kayak or Hotwire sending me a reservation number when I got to the Portland airport National could not find my reservation and would not rent me a car. I have already sent a blistering email to one of you sucky third parties about this awful experience and I am astonished you keep asking me about it. Truly one of the WORST experiences I have ever had while traveling. Do not contact me again for any reason!!!!!
