Top tips for hiring a car at Erie airport

  • Car rentals are a must-have when visiting a new region. They are more convenient and comfortable to move around with than public transit, like trains and buses. The use of rentals is also less expensive than rideshare or taxis. Rentals give you the freedom to explore attractive nearby or far-to-reach. You won’t have to worry about not ticking off all items on your itinerary due to inconveniences like public transit not covering that particular route.
  • You don’t have to wait till you arrive at Erie Airport (ERI) to book your car rentals. You can book Erie Airport car rentals from anywhere via KAYAK. We bring you a selection of rentals from all agencies at the airport and make it easy to find the rental you desire. With KAYAK, you don’t have to go through all available rentals for every provider, as it can be tiring. Make work easier by filtering the options according to the vehicle type. You can also input the budget and view options within your budget.
  • Erie Airport hosts several car hire agencies, including major providers like Budget, Alamo, National, Hertz, and Enterprise. The agencies have counters in the rental car center located in the baggage claim area. Just outside the baggage claim is the rental parking lot where you will pick up your rental. The airport is conveniently located about seven miles from downtown Erie so the drive to downtown should not take more than 20 minutes.
  • Erie International Airport is busiest on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We advise against flying in and out of the airport on these days as you will find it hectic to pick up and drop off your rental. The security and rental lines are usually longer than usual on these days, which can be frustrating, especially following a fling flight. Moreover, try booking flights that arrive or depart before 11 am and after 5 pm. The airport experiences a lot of passenger traffic between these times.
  • Book your car hire at Erie airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Erie airport

  • Which is the most convenient car hire company at Erie International Airport?

    Hertz is the most convenient car hire agency to look into for car rentals at Erie Airport. The agency has longer working hours than the rest, closing its counter at 1 am. You will have ample time to pick up your rental when you arrive on a late-night flight. It also provides after-hours pick up and drop-off services on request and at a small additional fee. The agency also has an on-site location, so you won’t have to go far for a rental.

  • Which amenities are available at Erie Airport rental car center?

    Erie Airport rental car center is located within the terminal building giving you access to all amenities in the terminal. The rental car center is accessible by wheelchair, and airport staff will help with your baggage if needed. There’s a bar and grill post security if you want a bite or drink. ATMs and vending machines are available in the main lobby of the terminal. Self-service kiosks and customer service desks are also near the ticket counter in the lobby area.

  • What type of documentation is required at Erie International Airport?

    Renters must be 21 and older to acquire car rentals at Erie Airport. Renters aged 21 to 24 can only rent vehicles from limited classes and will pay a young driver’s fee. Present a valid driver’s license in good standing and a major credit in your name. You cannot rent vehicles with a learner’s permit. If your license is in Chinese, Arabic, or a non-Roman alphabet, obtain an international driver’s permit beforehand to avoid inconveniences. The permit alone is not enough to acquire car rentals at Erie Airport; you must accompany it with a license.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Erie airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Erie airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, and National.

Cons:

The Kia car was extremely hard to get in and out of, hard to move the front seats and was dented when I got it, so it looked shabby. Budget did not discount it because it was dented, although they certainly would have charged me if I dented it!

Pros:

The car was okay.

Cons:

This was an extremely frustrating experience for me. I picked up a vehicle, drove 5 miles before stopping at a gas station and when I went to start the car it wouldn't start. I had to wait for a tow and by the time I got back and got a new car three hours had passed. I wasn't able to start my 7 hour journey as planned and I was charged $10 for an extension to keep the vehicle longer. I was also charged a base rate of $153, when I was quoted $112 (included taxes and fees). After additional taxes and fees were added to the $153, the cost was $200 for 24 hours.

Cons:

The woman behind the counter was nice. My issue was with having to wait 15 minutes for the car to be cleaned and prepped before I was able to leave.

Pros:

The staff was very quick and got me in-and-out fast on both the pick up and drop off.

Cons:

The car was a crappier model than what I was expecting. There was some sort of mechanical issue that was causing vibration and noise. It smelled like it had been smoked in for all of its 14,000 miles. The steering wheel was sticky. The vehicle braked suddenly and unexpectedly while I was driving.

The godawful car that I got from the Newark Hertz got a flat tire and the Pocono Township Hertz was nearby. They let us swap out the bad car for one that had four working tires.

It would have been nice if I didn't have to stop here in the first place.
