Top tips for hiring a car at Milwaukee-Mitchell Airport

  • Milwaukee-Mitchell Airport has a Rental Car Center at the terminal on Howell Avenue, making your connection to the city center more comfortable. Getting a rental vehicle ensures you can navigate Milwaukee and its neighboring cities conveniently, helping you balance work and leisure in style. You can also confidently utilize a car rental at Milwaukee-Mitchell Airport because the rental car center performs strict hygiene maintenance on the vehicles, including enhanced cleaning and disinfection of high-touch areas.
  • You can drive to the Rental Car Center during drop-off from the city center using I-94, I-43 S, and WI-119 E routes. After reaching the airport, follow the road signs directing you to the Car Rental Returns section. Park your vehicle and walk to the terminal for your departure after finishing the drop-off procedures.
  • The companies offering a car rental at Milwaukee-Mitchell Airport have a relatively short waiting time when returning your ride. A staff quickly checks the vehicle for mileage, fuel, and any damage before sending you off after completing and signing the rental contract. Moreover, after-hours services provided by most companies enable you to leave your car at the return parking lot, drop your keys and contract in a designated drop box before departing.
  • Despite having one of the shortest commute durations among urban regions, it is advisable to adjust your itinerary to avoid rush hours during your stay in Milwaukee. Congestion leaving the city starts from approximately 4 pm to 5.30 pm, whereas traffic going into the city begins from about 7 am to 8.30 am. Another challenge you may encounter is in using the after-hours service. In such instances, the car rental offices contact you after finishing the car check during business hours. As such, you remain responsible for the vehicle while waiting for standard working hours.
  • Book your car hire at Milwaukee-Mitchell Airport at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Cons:

The quoted price was $29.95 plus taxes per day with 200 miles per day. Somehow, I wound up being charged $265 for a 4 day rental. That alone is enough to upset me because obviously the quoted price was hiding extra fees or other costs.

Pros:

None

Cons:

Our reservation for a speciality van was at noon. We arrived at the location at 12:07 and the location was closed. The sign on the door and the website both said the location was open until 2:00. Avis was very unhelpful, insisting that it was my fault for “missing my appointment.” I told them that there were several steps they could have taken to make the situation a more customer service friendly experience, when the rental office saw they had a specialized reservation at noon, and they closed early, they should have had the courtesy to call us to alert us that our reservation was at closing time. The evening before, I called Avis to confirm the reservation, at that point the agent should have mentioned that the location closes at the time of my reservation. Neither steps were taken. I ended up having to drive to an airport location, and pick up a much smaller car, they didn’t have my specialty van in stock. I now have to pay $400 in shipping to get the remaining items shipped that was intended to go into the van. Avis customer service has been unhelpful, and maintains this is “my fault.” Buyer beware.

Pros:

I got the Nissan Pathfinder I wanted and it was a good drive

Cons:

When I dropped the car off, luckily I stayed around for the person to examine. She told me I had not filled up the gas - but actually, I did, to just above 1/2, as the the tank was right at 1/2 when I picked it up. She told me this wasn't correct, but after a few minutes of me telling her I definitely left the car with more gas than I started with, she said it was cool - but if I had just left it, I would have been charged extra for refueling.

Cons:

Our check engine light came on 3 days into our trip. We called dollar and they said to drop it off at the nearest rental location. No offer to come out to us to swap cars. We asked if a car would be ready when we arrived and they said yes. We arrived in Louisville and the attendant said they didn't have any cars for us. We ended up checking in at the hertz counter. Debby was very helpful and she did find us a car. But the experience overall was not good.

The vehicle was dirty inside and outside. I took pictures of everything. Car smelled like smoke and I told the lot attendant when I first got the vehicle.

Loved the short/no line. Wish there had been smaller and more fuel efficient vehicles available, but was glad to have something to drive! Staff should act like it's the first time, every time when someone rents a car as they seemed to assume I was familiar with the process when I was not. I made my questions known and got answers. Was also a little nervous about the oil change light being on in the car when I picked it up. Didn't have any car troubles on my trip though so it was ok. Drop off and pick up were quick and easy once my questions were answered.
