Kayak is a Scam
Pros: Nothinh
Cons: Kayak cheats the customer by offering an insurance at the time of booking the reservation. Please note that this is not from the car rental provider. In the same price, one can get coverage up to 1 million USD (against Kayak offering only 40,000). Also, there is no provision for third party liability insurance. And the worst part is you are not aware about any of these till the time you pick up your car. And hertz won't change or add the insurance once you pick up the car. I had booked a Toyata Corolla and got a shitty KiA Rio which made lot of sound, no provision for change of car and no help. Hertz 1/5 Rating Kayak 0/5 Rating Go for other website like arguscarhire.com cheaper and transparent and book Alamo, Thrifty and Dollar. These may be smaller companies then Avis, Hertz but are much better at service and transparency.

Car rental.com customer service horrible
Pros: Hertz pick up and drop off was effortless and person was very very nice both with pick up and drop off. My issue was more for the phone/online customer service. Never use kayak/carrental.com
Cons: Kayak sent me to car rental.com. I made a mistake and 1st called Hertz but she was too busy. Then car rental. Com and was told it would be $700 for one day. I will NEVER use this site again. Horrible pricing and customer service. I went directly to Avis website and rented a car for the next day for $54 Avis now has my business!

Good rental
Pros: The car was nicer than I expected and the woman who helped us at the counter was very friendly and helpful!
Cons: Something was wrong with the Easy Pass that we got - it kept sliding out of the windshield box so we had to hold it up when going through tolls, but wasn't really a big deal.

Dollar in NYC needs to improve
Pros: The car had a high mileage, but was in good condition, with frugal fuel use. The one way drop off fee (I rented in NYC and dropped the car off at Washington National) was very reasonable.
Cons: Pickup in NYC was an ordeal. Car was booked for noon, and I arrived at around 11:45, but did not get the car until 2 PM. I would have left, but I needed the car. A single lady at the counter. She was very slow, and gave customers wrong information on rates, fees and conditions (always favorign Dollar). She tried to fool me into buying insurance I did not need, saying I needed the "basic coverage" , which actually is optional. Just before me, she charged over $150 extra to some Mexican customers who wanted to upgrade their reservation from a compact to a standard car. Also, the office is very samll, and has only two seats.

Cons: I tried to return the car in NYC office. I was 5 minutes late and the office was still open. They refused to take the car, rudely walked away from me, gave me a number to call which was for an office which was closed. Very rude and very uncooperative agent in their office on E 22nd street. I will not rent from them ever again

Worst Rental Car Location
Cons: I showed up for my 1pm reservation. There were 4 other people there with reservations and the rental place had no cars. No cars for any of us. Couldn't find the cars. Told us to go to other locations to pick up cars. I was there for 30 minutes and finally said to the clerk, "would you like to know my name and what car I reserved?" and she replied that she's just give me the next available car. That doesn't work for a group of 7! She finally asked me what I need after 45 minutes and tolf me I could have the next car up. But it took her 20 minutes to fill out the paperwork (why wasn't it all electronic?) and run my credit card by calling the head office (the card machine was down, but also, they had it in the computer, why couldn't they just run it through the computer?). I have never encountered such incompetence, inability to communicate and problem solve... this company's only job is to rent cars, and they are terrible at it.

Would not use Dollar again after this horrible exp
Cons: The staff there did not read the fuel gauge properly and insisted that the tank is 6/8 fill and the staff at the front desk wanted to charge me $30 based on the false information. This is after I had insisted that I just filled the tank about 10 mins before drop off. At the end, it turns out that he didn't know how to read the fuel gauge and the front desk didn't even apologize for the wasted time and money I'd spent going to a nearby gas station to top up and get a receipt.

Spark of Life...
Pros: I arrived to pick up my car. The agent was super nice and very happy. (Definitely not what you expect at most rental car places) The car was ready and waiting for me. I was in and out in less than 5 minutes...The agent escorted me to my car, checked it over with me, showed me all the bells and whistles...and i was on my way! WOW I would definitely recommend Enterprise!
Cons: Nothing!

Top tips for renting a car in Manhattan

  • There is plenty to explore in and around Manhattan in Kansas and the easiest way to do so is by renting a car upon your arrival in the city. Whether a trip to Stagg Hill Golf Course or the breathtaking scenery of the various parks around Manhattan, a car can get you there easily and within your own time frame. Tuttle Creek Lake is about 9 miles from the city and can be conveniently reached by car in 15 minutes.
  • The best way to start a journey in Manhattan, Kansas is by picking up a rental car upon your arrival at Manhattan Regional Airport. Follow the signs to get to the rental car service desks and leave with a car in no time. Via the KS-18, travelers will be in Manhattan’s center in about 15 minutes to start their vacation time or business trip with ease.
  • Dust storms can occur suddenly in Kansas and it is best to always be prepared for them. When seeing a dust storm ahead, it is advised to stop the car, if it is safe to do so, and wait until it has passed rather than driving through it. Dust storms can impair your sight up to a point that drivers won’t be able to see the road anymore, so it is quite dangerous to drive through them.
  • Winter conditions in Manhattan, Kansas can also bring other dangerous road conditions, so it is important to equip the rental car beforehand. First of all, winter tires should be in place and snow chains can be added to the trunk. Drive defensively and also bring an emergency kit with you consisting of a blanket, water, a thermos, a flashlight, and some snacks in case your car gets stuck in snow and it takes some time to be picked up.
  • Book your rental car in Manhattan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Manhattan?

With dust storms and snow, a 4-wheel drive car is a safe bet when coming to Manhattan.

When getting a refill for the rental car, expect to pay about $2.60 per gallon. Some gas stations like Dillons or Kwik Shop offer rates as low as $2.50, so plan ahead before getting a refill to secure a good price. Especially when it gets cold, it is advised to leave the tank half full or above during the night so the gas line does not run the risk of freezing up.

There are various parking lots and garages at your disposal when parking a car in Manhattan, Kansas. On-street parking is restricted in many places and requires a parking permit or is metered.
