Top tips for hiring a car at Roanoke airport

  • Roanoke Airport (ROA), also referred to as the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, is a safe and convenient location to secure a rental car. With a Roanoke Airport car rental, you can not only explore historic Roanoke Virginia, but also the surrounding natural wonders of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest, as well. Driving to locations within the city in a rental car can be as much as over an hour faster than taking public transportation. In a Roanoke Airport car rental, you can visit and see what you want on your own schedule.
  • Choosing a car rental at Roanoke Airport is ideal because the airport itself is such a convenient place to be situated once you have arrived on your plane and you need to secure ground transportation. The airport has an ATM so you can get cash, Airport Ambassadors to help you with any questions you might have, and a restaurant with a full bar so that you can refresh and reboot if you need to. The airport also features a pet relief area that you can take advantage of if you are traveling with a service animal or a four-legged friend. Vending machines are also available near the car rental counters.
  • One distinct advantage of securing a car rental at Roanoke Airport as opposed to renting a car from elsewhere in Roanoke is that the car rental agencies at ROA tend to have longer hours than agencies in town. For instance, Avis at ROA is open from 7 am until 11:30 pm, compared to Avis car rentals in town in Roanoke which are open from 9 am until 5:30 pm.
  • When you secure a Roanoke Airport car rental, you can take advantage of services from the agencies that will help expedite the rental process. With Avis, you can take advantage of Preferred Service and After-Hour Returns. With Budget, you can take advantage of Fastbreak Service and After-Hour Returns. With Alamo, you can take advantage of Accelerated Check-In and After-Hour Returns. Signing up for these services is usually free.
  • Book your car hire at Roanoke airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at Roanoke airport

  • What car rental agencies are available at Roanoke Airport?

    If you would like to secure a car rental at Roanoke Airport, you can choose among the nationally recognized agencies Enterprise, Alamo/National, or Hertz/Dollar. These car rental agencies are located near the baggage claim on the first floor of the terminal. To make sure you get the vehicle you want, it is best to make a reservation before you arrive at Roanoke Airport.

  • Where do I pick up and drop off my car rental at Roanoke Airport?

    Once you have completed the paperwork and collected the keys from the car rental counter near baggage claim, you will exit the airport through the doors at the far end of the rental car counters. From there, you will head straight ahead to the parking lot on the west side of the terminal. This is the parking lot for the rental cars. When it is time to return your rental vehicle, follow the signs as you approach Roanoke Airport. These signs will lead you to rental car returns. Make sure you go to the lot for the agency you rented your car from.

  • What are the requirements in order to rent a car at Roanoke Airport?

    In order to secure a car rental at Roanoke Airport, you will need to be 25 years old. It is possible to rent a car if you are 21 to 24 years old, but you will have to pay a daily fee because you are a young driver. To secure a car rental at Roanoke Airport, you will need a valid US driver's license and a major credit card with your name on it. If you opt out of rental car coverage, it is very possible that you will need to show proof of your own coverage. When you make your reservation, make sure you confirm exactly what paperwork you will need to show at the time you pick up your vehicle.

  • Which car hire companies will pick you up at Roanoke airport?

    Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Roanoke airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, and National.

The vehicle was filthy inside. There were crumbs everywhere in the back seats. The non smoking car was definitely smoked in a reeked of cigarettes. The navigation screen was busted. On top of all that, one of the tires had a significant leak and I had to put air in it several times. Very bad experience.

Pros:

Clean and well equipped car. The agent was nice and professional

Cons:

Agent not masked. Not informed when reserving that there would be an additional $200 deposit placed on my credit card. When at the counter I was told that it would be released upon return of car. I don’t know if it has been returned yet, but I was on a trip for an interview during the pandemic and placing an additional $200 would have made my rental decision clear Togo with a different company.

Pros:

Great price for a full size car and super quick easy pickup at the airport.

Cons:

Even though the price was great for a Hyundai Sonata we just couldn't get over how dirty, old, well used the car was. The car had close to 40,000 miles and looked it. Large deep scratch down the drivers side but the worst part was the filthy upholestry and windows. We had to stop 2 different times to clean all of the interior windows because you just couldn't see through the haze. The towels were black, literally black after wiping them down. The seats could not be cleaned. This was not a quick wipe up of a spill, this was deep down stained over the years dirty. While the price was great and it was indeed a nice large size car the dirty and super well used automobile makes me score a lot lower than usual.

Cons:

The hours of pick-up did not match what I needed and the KayakRental car site did NOT give me that information. Luckily, I called ahead and would have had to pay an extra day just to get a pick-up BEFORE 8 a.m. I know that the flight schedule in Roanoke, VA is not large, but not to be able to pick up a car before 8 when that is the only outlet for National is a bit unlucky.
