KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Carmel

  • Carmel car rentals help renters travel comfortably and fast to any of their choice locations in Carmel. If you book car rentals in Carmel, most of the rental companies provide add-on amenities like child seats, GPS, and sometimes ski racks and snow tires in case you’re in Carmel during the winter. If you’re in Carmel for a solo trip, a couples trip, a family vacation, a business trip, or for whatever reason, book car rentals in Carmel to make your drive safe. For all foodies, attend the Caramel Small-Group Walking Food and Cultural Tour. If you want to walk on sandy beaches drive yourself to Coastal Pebble Beach.
  • Book Carmel car rentals from the rental locations at Indianapolis International Airport (IND) to get access to accessible services from both the airport services and the rental companies. The rental companies located onsite at IND include Hertz, Alamo, Enterprise, Budget, Thrifty, Airport Van, Avis, Sixt, and Payless. These rental companies can be found on the 1st floor of the parking garage in the Ground Transportation Center which is accessible from the airport's terminal. Renters can also get on the free shuttle services provided by Budget, Hertz, Enterprise, Alamo, Ace, Sixt, Dollar, and Payless to their off-airport locations at no extra costs.
  • When driving car rentals in Carmel observe the traffic rules, wear your seat belts and stay alert on the road. In addition, when traveling with kids under the age of 8 years, make sure they’re buckled in a child seat, don’t overtake cyclists on a turning lane, don’t drive in thick fog with zero visibility, avoid aggressively driving, avoid using cruise control to ensure your body is alert as you drive, be on the lookout for cyclists and motorists who seem to be breaking traffic and avoid them at all costs.
  • The rush hour in Carmel typically starts at around 7 am to 9 am in the morning and from 4:40 am to 6 pm in the evening. Driving during these time slots could add up to 2 hours to your commute time, so it’s advised to plan your trip early on and drive before or after these hours. Avoid traffic bottlenecks like Interstate 65, Interstate 70, and Interstate 465. You can as well use traffic apps and navigation systems to give you information about accidents ahead, road works, and route expansions.
  • Book your rental car in Carmel at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Carmel are around 58% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

The staff was friendly. They didn't have what I requested so I got a free upgrade. Return was seamless and quick.

Cons:

The pick-up explanation felt a bit rushed. He was throwing a lot of add-ons and numbers at me and I didn't really get a chance to process everything. The insurance I bought before pick-up was not through Enterprise. Theirs is different. That needs to made more clear.

Cons:

The check oil light came on in the very expensive premium SUV I rented. I had to exit and stop at a gas station to check the oil. The oil was not even touching the full tube. It took two quarts of oil at $10 to make it right. Not a big deal, but a minor inconvenience. I thought Enterprise would simply reimburse me the $20 and make it right - they didn’t! A very pretty move... We were told by the represent that the only the store manager could make that call and he would call us to discuss. They never did. Terrible customer service a real shame to lose a customer over $20...

Cons:

Pick up took forever. Car had hardly any gas in it when I picked it up. When I asked if I could drop off at airport you said you’d charge me $100 drop fee. I offered to pay $50 as a compromise but you said no way. Will not ever use enterprise again.

Pros:

Cons:

The first rental I picked up started overheating 20 minutes after leaving the lot, I had to return the car after being told to go to a different enterprise to swap the car, no one had one available so I still had to return to the original site to swap out the car. Very time consuming.

Pros:

We had a three week rental and were upgraded from a full size to a luxury SUV at no additional cost to us. The vehicle was incredible and we didn’t want to give it back. National did a great job with prompt service at pick up and drop off and were careful to adhere to Covid safety precautions.

Cons:

Absolutely nothing!

2.0 Poor

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

I would say there was nothing I liked but if I have to give an answer I would say I liked that my family was not more devastated when our vacation was ruined because the rental was cancelled. There was nothing to like about having my reservation cancelled because of a supposed "system error".

Cons:

This survey and follow up is just another example of the non-existent customer service. How can you possibly ask for a review when you ruined our vacation? We had to have a large vehicle to take our whole family. The fact you cancelled it and provided no alternative the day before our trip??? After booking the reservation, taking time off of work and getting the approved absences for an extra day for our children, plus organizing a place to stay, we received a call the day before our pick up telling us they didnt have the vehicle or any vehicle the size we were requesting because they oversold due to fall break. I asked what they would do about it, they said they could refund my money but that was all since it wasnt their fault. I asked who's fault it is and received no answer. In the midst of the stress of the pandemic my family was really looking forward to this trip. No fix, not their fault. This was extremely disappointing. To add salt to the wound a day later I received a confirmation of the billing for the insurance for the vehicle that they couldnt rent to me in the first place. I called the customer service only to be told i had to call another number and another number and was transferred to another number and then was "accidentally" disconnected. I googled the insurance company directly and was ready to lose it but there i found someone who took ownership and fixed it. What a disaster. No way I would recommend this service unless you understand that its a one way deal. You are held to their terms and conditions with no way to hold them accountable or even have confidence you will get what your contract says or anything at all. My only recommendation is when they screw it up check your statement so that you get your money back otherwise it appears they will have no problem just keeping your money.

Pros:

Helpful and friendly staff, quick in-and-out, great balue

Cons:

Because the strip mall where National is located is busy, you have to be a little careful where you park when returning the vehicle. This is VERY clearly marked and the staff makes sure you know about it....and this is really the only thing I can think of that is even slightly negative.

Your customer service team is excellent: Friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. They made up for the fact that the car wasn't clean on the inside. Ashes were on the dashboard, pieces of candy, a plastic fork, and an unused tea bag were all present telling me that the cleaning job was rushed and not done well.
