The first SUV I received had a few issues. It was fairly dirty on the inside and had duct tape holding the front windshield chrome trim piece on. I was originally told the duct tape was due to a new windshield but when I took the SUV in to be detailed the detail shop stated it was holding the chrome trim piece on so they wouldn't remove the duct tape. I called Enterprise and they found a replacement SUV for me right away. I always received high quality vehicles from Enterprise so I was surprised they released the 1st vehicle. But, they corrected my concern right away with another SUV.

The manager of the office at 2618 W Fairview in Boise was awesome. I believe his name is Blake. He was very accommodating and friendly. No surprises. We had to pick up the next morning as our flight was delayed and he said no problem. Appreciate the great service. We usually go with a company that rhymes with Fudget, but was really impressed with service from Enterprise.Nothing. It was great!

I returned the car on time. The guy who checked it indudjt say one word to me until he told me to leave. He scanned it in looked over it quickly and that was it. The car was dirty inside, smelled horribly, had a faint smoke smell, and the windshield wipers barely worked. I returned the car and still haven't received a receipt or my $200 back. The only positive was the far got great gas mileage.

I started off by renting a "full sized" sedan. I think the industry has forgotten what a full sized car is! This was too small for the 5 adults (with 4 over 6' tall) that were in my party. After a short ride to the hotel we knew it wasn't going to work. The next morning I returned to Budget and explained my situation. The counter person was EXCELLENT! She re-did my contract and changed my car to one with 3rd row seating and the extra cost was minimal. Great customer service! I rated the cleanliness on the first car as "ok" as it wasn't washed and floors were dirty, the second car I got was good.

The representative who assisted me did not mention anything about the additional $200 hold that would be placed on my card. I would have liked to know about that signing up. Maybe place a visible sign by the express drop off so it's easier to see. I appreciated the option to pay for fuel up front so we could just park the car when we returned it.

Alison was professional and helpful. I wish her computers were running faster! The software was taking a while to load yet she wasn’t getting frustrated. She was quick on her feet and started to boot up another computer. Easy drop off, overall smooth process. Thanks!The inside of the vehicle could have been sprayed out/ cleaned a little better. There was caked on dirt in the trunk area and dog hair in the back seat. Overall staff was great and accommodating.

I’ll never use a discount car rental again. I saved $5, but my trip was canceled due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Since I saved $5 on the discounted price, I was not refundable and they would not allow me to change the rental to a future date. Horrible customer service. Stay away!

The rental didn’t even happen because even though we called their corporate customer service and had the pickup time changed the number they had for the local office at the Boise airport was disconnected and turns out their office closes at 5 pm and they don’t offer any sort of after hours pick up.Everything. Their customer service is non existent.

Information on Debit card use. There was no indication that before a 24 hour reservation a debit card could not be used. Then the rules with a debit card are absurd.

Avis rescued me. My flight was running late, and I double checked pick up time on a reservation at a competitor. It was no longer in their system after my reconfirming it 48 hours earlier. Panic, especially given shortage of rental cars. I found what I needed (for a better price) at Avis while I was in the air. Pick up was pleasant and easy. Vehicle was relatively new and in great shape. Drop off was easy. Could not have gone better. Avis is my new go to!Not much. Price was very high given shortage of vehicles and destinations but it was well within reason. Avis saved me!

They didn't have the correct car for me even though I reserved ~2 months ahead of time. Then, they gave me a smaller car and tried to convince me it was an upgrade. The attendant clearly had no interest in making me happy, she only wanted to get me out of there. When I pointed out that there were vehicles there that would be a true upgrade, she said that they couldn't release those because they were "reserved". I pointed out that I also had a car "reserved" and she couldn't provide me that vehicle, so why were the other reservations "real" while mine didn't really matter? Our luggage didn't fit in the vehicle provided, so we stayed an extra day before driving to our final destination so I could take the chance and try to swap the vehicle the next day. Phone support was also weak, with Alamo support having closed at 7:00pm and anyone else available said they had no power to do anything. Also tried Priceline customer support, they also claimed there was nothing to do, stating they only provide the reservation, not the car. Will never use Alamo, Priceline or Kayak again to get a rental car.

Didn't get the rental. In a completely incomprehensible move, the rental agent has made it their policy to not rent their vehicles unless the rental is either paid for via credit card, or you can use a debit card, but ONLY if you have a ticket stub for a flight. Which seems like a very odd case of favoritism in favor of non-local individuals. Even more odd is the fact that apparently at non-airport locations this rental agency will allow anyone to rent a vehicle with a debit card. This is all highly frustrating when you think you have your ride planned for a trip and it falls through at the last minute due to such an odd and arbitrary detail, and I won't be using this rental agency in the future.

Outstanding service and quality. The only complaint is just how TACKY it is to have rental car stickers and serial number stickers/labels all over the windows. Please find a better way to track and scan these cars. When I’m renting a car I don’t want to scream to the world that “it’s a rental” and for many, many reasons.

I find ridiculous that HERTZ car rentals still WILL NOT accept a bank card as payment. I don't carry credit cards. Fortunately my husband had his company credit card so we could reserve the car. Then we paid with our bank card when we dropped off the rental. But still.... Do they not understand that a bank card when run as credit, IT'S THE SAME THING AS A CREDIT CARD!!! Get with it HERTZ! I understand that they probably get some kind of benefit from the credit card companies when they refuse paying customers the use of their personal bank card. I find it a little infuriating the way they treat their customers who ARE STILL PAYING THEM MONEY! I will say though, they were very pleasant people when they were helping us solve this ludicrous dilemma.

When we arrived to pick up our car at 10:30 PM on July 4 in Boise, alone among the rental car companies, Hertz had arbitrarily closed at 9 PM, despite normally being open till midnight, as Hertz had told me they would be when I called to confirm their closing hours. Closing at 9 was simply inexcusable. For dessert, even though our car had 29,500 miles on it at pick-up, and so obviously demanded its oil change for 30,000 miles before giving it to us, Hertz failed to change the oil! Inexcusable again! So in the middle of the wilds of Yellowstone, we get a warning light that we need an oil change! How delightful! In short, I’ve been renting cars for more than fifty years, and this was incomparably the worst rental experience I ever had. No wonder Hertz alone filed for bankruptcy during COVID. They used to be the gold standard. No more.

We had no trouble with our SUV rental other than how expensive rental cars are right now. The only negative with the car itself was that the cleaning crew left some trash in the glove box and underneath the middle row of seats hadn't been vacuumed and there was food crumbs. Otherwise, all was great and the car itself was perfect for our purposes.
