This flexibility is particularly beneficial in the sprawling region of Fort Smith, ensuring easy access to remote locations, scenic drives, and hidden gems that may not be easily reachable by public transportation. Additionally, having a rental car provides the luxury of comfort, privacy, and the convenience of storing belongings securely while sightseeing.
  • The closest airport to Fort Smith is Fort Smith Regional Airport (FSM).

Pros:

Returning the vehicle was very quick and easy once I found the right place to do it.

Cons:

The "rental car return" signs left me in a parking lot with no attendant, sign, or other indication what to do. I found a random parking spot and made my way over to the terminal building, where I found an agent at the desk (who then handled things very quickly and smoothly).

Pros:

The representative was very nice and professional

Cons:

My agreement for the rental was for 4 days unlimited mileage but when I returned it, I was charged for mileage after an allowed amount of mileage. Making it come up to about $475. To my confusion I don't understand how the contract was so different in charges compared to my initial reservation through kayak. The manager was able to bring it down to $167 but that still meant I paid $50 extra in fee for no reason. It was picked up and returned on time with full tank. But better read the fine prints when you get the contract because they won't tell you anything and it wasn't the same deal as I reserved it through kayak. I will never rent again at hertz regardless of price.

Cons:

The building is bland and dirty. Dropped the car off in another city and had billing issues. There was an extra one way charge for $50 that no one made mention of or was on my original reservation. Of course the computers were slow and then crashed. It took almost an hour just to drop off the car. I received the receipt by email two days later.
