KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bloomington

  • Bloomington is a large suburban city located south of Indianapolis. Still, despite its size, it has a limited public transport system, which isn’t very advantageous when attempting to get around while on holiday. Car rentals in Bloomington provide you with an affordable ride to suit your needs, plus you own the freedom and convenience to navigate Bloomington independent of city transport. Griffy Woods Nature Preserve has a lake and boathouse approx. 3.5 miles from central Bloomington for some R&R, while Indianapolis offers evening or weekend excitement about 50 miles north via I-69. These places are easy to access by car but difficult to reach by public transport.
  • Indianapolis International Airport is the closest one to Bloomington and has a car rental centre which is convenient since the airport is some 50 miles from the city centre. Nearly a dozen major providers have offices at the airport’s Ground Transportation Center, on the first floor of the Terminal Garage, so you won’t have too much trouble finding a vehicle when you make a reservation. SIXT, Avis and National are three providers offering a smart mix of economy cars, SUVs and saloons, but you must be at least 21 years old to hire one. Remember that young driver fees will apply to anyone under 25.
  • You’ll need your passport, ID, local driver’s licence and a major credit card or bank debit card to get a car rental in Bloomington. We strongly urge you to carry an International Driving Permit as well. Always drive your vehicle on the right side of the road and only use a hands-free device when you’re behind the wheel. Be sure all occupants are wearing seat belts before you get underway. Driving under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances is strictly prohibited, and traffic cameras are standard on city streets and highways, so drive safely at all times.
  • Traffic moderately increases during the summer and could present a few problems along key roads and near main junction points around Bloomington. For example, the interchange of State Road 45/I-69 west of Twin Lakes and the major junction in the north-western corner are susceptible to inbound and outbound congestion during morning and evening rush hour periods. The city’s grid pattern may also cause slowdowns when driving in the city centre, especially near the Indiana University campus, on weekdays from 8 - 9 a.m. and 1 - 3 p.m. due to high pedestrian activity.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Bloomington for ₹ 4,734 or less
  • Book your rental car in Bloomington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

The car was nice but was old

Cons:

Check-in process took 30 minutes because they couldn’t figure out how to do the technology. He signed the rental agreement for me which I think is illegal. The car didn’t have a full tank of gas and wasn’t clean. Then they were closed on Sundays when my scheduled return was and I got charged for an extra day. Don’t rent from here!!!!

Jul 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

. The facility itself was so dirty. Trash laying around the waiting room. Looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks. One person working the entire facility. He was doing his best but the process wasn’t great. There was no walk around to mark dings/imperfections on the car. My car was filthy when I got it. Not only was there NO sanitation/COVID cleaning there were cracker crumbs on the floor of the backseat. Dog hair all over. The navigation/backup camera screen was shattered. It was not good. The person working there said there weren’t any other cars he could give me. I had to be at an appointment in a few minutes so there wasn’t anything I could do. Thankfully, upon return, they did not charge me for the rental. The person working there did his best to make the situation right but they clearly need more staff if he’s the only one expected to run the counter, check in and out cars AND clean. It was not a good experience and I would be renting from here again.

Pros:

Check out and drop off was quick.

The vehicle was almost new, very nicely equipped and comfortable. We received extraordinary service when we returned the car to O’Hare airport. Unfortunately I don’t remember the man’s name, but we were very impressed by his willingness to help my family with our luggage, etc

The car was extremely dirty on the outside and a little dirty on the inside

Avis did NOT have the truck on the day I requested it. They said they called but it did not show up in the system and they did not leave a voice-mail either. Luckily I went to ENTERPRISE and they did everything right. I am looking to get a refund from KAYAK . Will never use Avis again!

Despite making a reservation 2 months in advance, they did not have a car for me to rent at the time of my reservation. They were unapologetic and simply said they would call if one came in, I never got a phone call and went to a competitor to rent a car with them instead.

KAYAK

Pros:

Price was good

Cons:

Didn't have car I ordered. Sent me all over town just have to come back to same location. CAR BROKE DOWN. Sent to airport to be sent back to broken down location 3 hours later. They had no idea what they were doing. Agent in Charolette (Sheridan location) was rude.

May 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

If I could give zero stars here, I would.

Cons:

Twenty minutes before pick up time, rental place calls me and says "we don't have any vans...sorry they let you book it" So, trip ruined, 7 people didn't get to go as planned, etc. bad birthday for my daughter. Furthermore, Kayak accepted no responsibility and passed the buck to Payless... Just a sad situation. I also was charged for insurance on the vehicle that I never even picked up...since there was NOTHING available.

3.2 Poor

May 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was the perfect size for our needs.

Cons:

The 30 minute wait (really 30 minutes) to get my rental, while the salesperson tried to upsell the only other person in the rental trailer. It is quite a drive to the off site rental trailer. The wear on the outside of the car was very noticeable. Lots of nicks, and chrome pealing.
