KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Saint Charles

  • Car rentals in Saint Charles provide a versatile means of transportation for travelers moving between various areas of the city. In contrast to the public transport system, relying on Saint Charles car rentals offers the benefit of selecting your desired travel times and the most convenient routes to reach any destination within the city. This level of flexibility is unavailable when relying on fixed departure schedules and routes of public trains or buses. By having a rental car at your disposal, you can conveniently drive to Camp Kane, which is one of the most popular attractions in Saint Charles.
  • The major airport nearest to Saint Charles, IL, is O'Hare International Airport (ORD), located in Chicago. O'Hare International Airport offers several car rental services from various agencies.

Pros:

Attendants were polite and picked us up and delivered us back to the residence.

Cons:

Didn’t like that they couldn’t help me with the toll payment problem. (I didn’t have all the change for a unmanned coins only toll booth on the Illinois tollway. I’m from California. Upon returning the car, I informed the enterprise staff who referred me to the 800# Enterprise problem solver which they said could walk me through paying the toll online, but that person couldn’t help. Also I returned the car with more gas than it had when I received it. (1/4 tank over), I thought they would reimburse me for the difference but just gave me a business card saying I could get the gas credited on the next rental but I rarely rent cars. I dont think the business card would be honored in the future anyway.

They had no porter on staff that would detail each car between use. Si the office staff had to clean this is not their forte so to speak

There was a huge crack in the windshield we were not told about. Car was covered in snow and parked far away. And an old candy wrapper in the backseat.

The car was filthy - full of trash (opened bottles of water, food wrappers, etc) and had not been washed or vacuumed. The windshield had caked on bugs and grime that were so old the wipers and fluid would not remove. Tail light was out as well. Really gross and unprofessional.

2.4 Poor

Feb 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The employee at the drop off end in Port St. Lucie was pleasant and seemed to know, and enjoy, his job.

Cons:

Car interior, windows and trunk were not clean. Staff in St. Charles office were not helpful. Mischarged for rental despite Kayak confirmation, and spent an hour over 2 calls trying to get it fixed. Got to FL to turn in car and found out the car they gave me the wrong car in St Charles IL!

KAYAK

Pros:

N/A

Cons:

The initial car was left unclean and appeared to have animal hair left in the vehicle. One of our family members is extremely allergic to pets. When we asked the employee they understood why we were concerned but it took an additional 90 minutes to produce another vehicle & charges additional $110!
