Car rental insurance in Hartford

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Hartford car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Hartford.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Hartford car rental.

Pros: Yes
6.8 GoodAug 6 2020
Pros: The process for both pick-up and drop-off were super quick and easy, despite obvious limitations with covid.Cons: They left me in the dark about my refund for my deposit for using a debit card at pick-up. Still unsure if and when I’ll be receiving it back.
9.6 ExcellentOct 9 2018
Pros: Our flight wasn't until 7:30 p.m. and the car had to be returned at 11 a.m... We called Andrew at the Hartford location and for 4.$ extra we were able to keep the car until 4. They also allowed us to drop the car at a location closer to the airport. The experiecne made our trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you Enterprise. Your new loyal customers,

10.0 ExcellentOct 23 2017
Be sure you get the right shop for airport pickupPros: Jake from the Airport Rd. office called to make sure I wanted his (Brainard Airport) office in Hartford, and not them more likely Bradley Airport in Windsor Locks, serving the Hartford area. Thay was going above and beyond and saved me a LOT of trouble. The Bradley shop honored the rate (with higher taxes) and were friendly and professional. I have been scammed by the Alamo/National tactics and highly recommend Enterprise over those two chains.Cons: Only that the website didn't make the location abundantly clear. The system should know that "Hartford" might mean Bradley and alert the buyer. That may be Kayak's problem, not sure.
10.0 ExcellentSep 19 2017
Pros: Great price, fuel efficient carCons: Squeaks and weird sounds in the rear/trunk area but it drove fine.

2.0 MediocreSep 14 2020
Pros: I didn't get the carCons: SOMEBODY TELLINGME THE RENTAL DIDNT GO THROUGH BEFORE I SHOWED UP THERE IN AN UBER AND GOT STRANDED
4.8 OkaySep 29 2019
Pros: Decent car and decent drop off experience.Cons: Upon pickup in Hartford, the employee was very unwilling to review scratches and damage prior to the trip and there was a lot. Employees were using vulgar raciest language with each other directly in the presence of several customers. Generally, terrible pickup location in an unsafe neighborhood.
2.0 MediocreJul 10 2019
Pros: Did not pick up car I specifcally explained a Bradley air port area pick up and when I got to Bradley to pick up the car I was told the pick up was in Hartford the rental at the airport cost me $450 dollars more. Very unhappy
9.2 ExcellentAug 7 2018
Pros: Good car, clean, well maintained. Friendly, efficient staff.Cons: Not enough staff at the Liebert Road site. When I picked the car up there was a thunderstorm coming up, and one poor fellow had to deal with a line of people impatient to get going, another line of people wanting to return, as well as the necessary inspections of outgoing and incoming vehicles. He should never have had to do this alone. That said, he did a great job considering the circumstances.
5.6 OkayOct 11 2017
Not the bestPros: upgrade for 7/dayCons: The cat urine smell in the car The cost. I booked the car as a vacation package deal and was not expecting the over 400 charge - I was under the impression the car was a "deal" this did not happen. I will not use a Package deal again.
2.0 MediocreAug 6 2017
Horrible customer servicePros: The advertised priceCons: I was renting through my company and needed the underage fee to be waived. I called customer service before I arrived at the Budget office to apply my company code, they couldn't assist me and referred me to the nearest office. The rep at the office said an underage charge wouldn't be added, went ahead and swiped my card then realized I was being charged double the price. So I decided not to proceed with the rental, but was still charged an absurd qmount of money.
6.4 GoodJul 26 2017
Budget operationPros: nice enough staff albeit aloof. quick and efficient serviceCons: rough crowd renting cars. one couple was fighting in the store. the guy working the counter let them be themselves (probably for his own self preservation). hard location to get to
3.6 MediocreJun 14 2017
Pros: The car itself was fine, and the attendants at the rental facility were very nice. Talking to representatives on Budget's national call center line to try to make modifications to the rental was a nightmare though.Cons: The rental facility was in the middle of nowhere. The facility had a toilet and sink but no toilet paper or hand paper towels. Talk about budget.
10.0 ExcellentMay 29 2017
Pros: Very comfortable, smooth ride and not that bad on gasCons: I tried to keep the car for another 2 days and it would of been about half of what i paid for 10 days
2.0 MediocreMay 22 2017

2.0 MediocreMay 26 2021
Pros: Terribly understaffed, one agent with more than 20 customers waiting more than an hour. Confusion about cars, cars missing keys, awful service.Cons: Everything.
2.0 MediocreMay 14 2021
Pros: Very friendly and helpful! My problem is with Priceline. They scheduled this at a downtown location, which after I got off the airplane had no way to get to before closing. System shouldn’t have allowed. I selected BDL airport and couldn’t have known what street the car rental places are. Avis worked with me but airport fees made the care over $100 more. I won’t be ordering from Priceline again. I will order from Avis directly. They are great.Cons: See above.
8.0 ExcellentJan 22 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: Friendlier staff
3.6 MediocreOct 7 2020
Pros: The convenience and service I received at the time of pick-up and drop-off. Easy and seamless.Cons: I have never rented from Avis before but I have rented a car with other companies prior to this experience. I expected the Avis employee to walk with me to the vehicle and inspect the vehicle prior to me leaving with the vehicle. That did not happen. I was handed the keys and told I was all set. I walked to the car and noticed that it was dirty inside, leftover papers in the trunk and wrappers in the back door. About half way through my 750 mile commute I received a maintenance required notification on the dashboard for the rear seatbelts. I didn’t use the rear seat belts at all during my trip. The notification continued to prompt every time I would start the car. Just didn’t make me feel safe that all services/recalls weren’t serviced prior to letting a customer take the vehicle as a rental, especially with my lengthy trip.
10.0 ExcellentDec 21 2019
Pros: Super easy drop off and pick up!
9.6 ExcellentOct 16 2017
A tale of two locationsPros: So I mistakenly thought I booked the car for the Avis location close to the airport. Took the Avis shuttle from airport to their facility, and when the agreement screen popped up, the price showed as being close to $600!! I showed the clerk my reservation, with the price I agreed to as being $136, and the clerk said “Oh, I see the problem. Your booking is with the downtown Avis location, not the airport location.” So I used a rideshare app to go the 20 minutes to the proper facility, and got the price I was promised. But - are you freaking KIDDING ME? It costs 4 times as much for the same car, with the same company, if you rent it from the airport location instead? price gouging, anyone??? On the plus side, once I was at the proper location, the transaction was very smooth and the clerk very helpful

Pros: Nothing at all after checking my reservation it stated that sixt will be closing at 3pm and we gave them a call to let them know that our flight will be getting in at 2:15 pm and once we got there we was told that someone else took the car that we reserved for weeks ago. This facility rather more money over customer service I will not be booking with this company ever again even if it's my last resort. I will take a lyfe or Uber first before stepping into this establishment again
