Our flight in Chicago cancelled. We were unable to change the pick up location from Peoria to Chicago We were stranded in Chicago at night. We had to get another car from Chicago to Peoria and then the next day go get our Kayak rental in Peoria. We paid for a day we did not use. The other problem was booking through Kayak there was no opportunity to cancel. We will never book another car through Kayak.

On May 5, 2017, I pre-paid $285.15 for this rental car. When I picked it up on June 29, 2017, I give the clerk (Raquel) my pre-paid reservation receipt and she asked for a credit card (and said it was just for security deposit). When I returned the car as scheduled on July 12, 2017, the clerk asked if I wanted a receipt. It was then that I realized the rental agreement was put on a previous made (and supposed to be canceled) reservation and I was charged $401.46. THIS (SAME CAR) WAS PRE-PAID!! When I asked the clerk to remove the charge, she said that she could not. I called the billing department ... PLEASE REMOVE THE $401.46 ASAP!! I have been a Hertz Gold customer for over 30 years and I'm now very dissatisfied!

Poor handling of customer concernsNot muchI was given a tiny car for "compact" level and when I asked if they had any other one - Kara the customer service rep started lecturing me that "next time you should book the kind of car you actually want to drive!". Also; the car did not have full tank of gas even though I was charged for a full tank when I picked up. When I called to simply let them know that their records on the car were wrong- she kept arguing with me about how much gas should have been used in 10 minute span that I had the car and offered me "$2 dollar credit" which I declined. Hidden "airport" fees that were not communicated. I ended up $16 extra in taxes and fees, making the savings on the rental obsolete! Nowhere were these explained until they charged my credit card! I would not recommend this location or Herz in general, they only care about the money!

THE CAR WAS A DODGE CHARGER WITH LOTS OF OPTIONS.WHEN WE PICKED UP THE CAR THE FEMALE AGENT WAS GETTING SNIPPY WITH A CUSTOMER ON THE PHONE. AFTER SHE WAS DONE WITH THEM SHE WAITED ON US AND GOT A LITTLE SNIPPY WITH ME. ALSO SO THE TIRES ON THE DODGE CHARGER WE HAD WERE COMPLETELY UNSAFE DOWN TO THE WEAR BARS. I DID NOT NOTICE THIS UNTIL WE WERE ON OUR WAY BACK. when I RETURNED THE CAR THE DIFFERENT FEMALE AGENT WAS VERY NICE.

SUV RENTALI picked up the SUV at the airport and they required me to sign the sheet that has the checklist for any damage to the vehicle? This is before I even see the vehicle that is parked a few hundred yards from the building? They need to have a person drive it up to the building and go over it before driving away! Once i got it to the peoples house I was picking up, I opened the back gate and noticed some previous damage from another rental?? NOW WHAT AM I TO DO ?? How do I prove I did not do it since I have the vehicle in my posession? A real bummer! I did buy the insurance, which by the way, is way too expensive..if they charge it to that insurance it will be fraud ?? Also the vehicle was very dirty and water spotted on the exterior which in turn makes it difficult to see any damage before driving out of the lot!!

Infotainment system didn't work and felt belittledI had a Focus and unbeknownst to me it was a hybrid model. This made for great mileage and saved on the gas expense. Despite being overpriced in my opinion, it was the lowest price that Kayak had available.The entire infotainment system regularly shut off for the entire trip. While I had declined the Sirius and Navigation, it still made me unable to listen to the radio or CDs. The worker when I picked up the car was pretty condescending in her efforts to try and get me to spend more money. I had a one-way trip of about 600 miles, and I felt like the charge was pretty high for just a 24 hour rental.

Worst experience we have ever had with a rental caI didn't like anything.Customer service is awful. My husband had to fly to Peoria for a funeral at the last minute we had a car reserved. The computers at Budget Rental were not working and instead of working with him, they refused to rent him a car even though they had our credit card on file and he had the credit card in his possession they refused renting a car . he even offered them cash. He had to call a family member in the middle of the night because his flight got in late, to have that family member come and pick him up. I tried to talk to the woman on the phone to give her another credit card because they said they needed to charge more money than what the car actually was on to our account to pre-approve it. She was rude and unhelpful. Worst experience I've ever had with getting a car and my husband ended up having to rely on his family to get around town because he did not end up renting the car... we gave up. We didn't have a choice really ; when I tried to call customer service to complain or to solve the problem, they said their computers were down and they could not help me, that I needed to call back later. At that point it was way too late. We will never ever ever ever used Budget Cars again. Basically, because they could not process our credit card because of their own problems with computers, my husband was left without transportation in a time of family crises. I can't even express my disgust in budget car rental and also delta airlines, who also was having computer problems and still has our credit card tied up with pending charges for tickets we never purchased. Also, who could not fix it. I remember when companies used to bend over backwards to be helpful when a family member passed away.

No Credit Card: Big ProblemWasn't allowed to rent a car because I do not have a major credit card, even though I had already pre-paid for the entire rental up front. Ended up leaving without a rental car, causing my trip to be ruined.

Top tips for hiring a car at Greater Peoria Airport

  • When you choose to book a car rental at Greater Peoria Airport, you will have access to a convenient and comfortable way to move throughout the city. Peoria is not known for being particularly walkable or for having an extensive public transportation system, so a car is one of the easiest ways to head to your destination. Plus, having a Greater Peoria Airport car rental will make it easy for you to move around with cargo, whether it be luggage or sports equipment, like hiking supplies.
  • You will find that there are many models to choose from for your car rental at Greater Peoria Airport, depending on what your preferences are. If you will be traveling with several suitcases, you may want to opt for a roomy minivan. If you will be venturing out into the forest to do some hiking, an SUV can come in handy. Those that plan on staying in the city center or are on a budget can always choose an economy or compact vehicle.
  • To return your car rental at Greater Peoria Airport, all you must do is bring it back to the location where you initially picked it up. All rental car companies that have branches at the airport keep their fleets directly on airport property. Make sure to keep in mind the exact area where you originally grabbed your rental, as it can be slightly different for each company. Depending on the specific company that you will be renting with, you may be able to drop your car off after business hours.
  • Peoria can be a busy city, whether it be due to individuals visiting for work or leisure. Because of this, its roads can often be congested, particularly during rush hour, which is between the hours of 7 and 9 am and 5 and 7 pm. Try to avoid getting caught in a traffic jam by picking up and dropping off your car rental outside of these time periods. There are some streets that can be easier than others, and these include Interstates 40, 74, and 150.
  • Book your car hire at Greater Peoria Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
