Awesome customer service and very affordable. Only thing was that vehicle was not clean or sanitized. It was a little uncomfortable driving home. Once I was home I sprayed it with lysol. Other than that it was an awesome experience. Thanks

Easy drop off. The pick up was not as smooth, but it seems airport is doing renovations so the lot is not in its usual space.

After making reservations and arriving at location, Enterprise did not have any vehicles besides a SUV and a large van. I asked why did websites allow rentals to be reserved, and they stated it was out of their hand.

Great experienceFree upgrade, and the customer service rep waited till our plane landed before shutting down the rental counter. Clean, new, and comfortable. Loved the unlimited miles, that saved us so much money while traveling to three different states to visit family.

Awesome staff, very helpfulJose went above and beyond! Was understanding that we we're going to be late arriving, and forwarded messages to the late shift attendant, who in turn helped us get out of the rental quickly an ⓓ on our way.

Not sure I would use this company againPicking up the car went very smoothly.The car very was dusty inside and did not have windshield wiper fluid. When returning the car to the airport, there were no signs for Dollar Car rental. It was very confusing and stressful trying to return the car. I was never told that I was supposed to leave it in the Hertz rental car spot. It was also annoying providing a receipt showing that I refilled the car within 10 miles of the airport. The company should be able to turn on the car and see that the tank is full.

Deceived paid a lot more then stated by kayakI paid a lot more then what kayak stated,They make you feel your in a used dealership the person will even charge you satellite radio if he can, and be careful with the insurance coverage make sure you read carefully or they'll make up inf. just to sell insurance very disappointed with Dollar rent a car and kayak

undisclosed charge for early returnI was dinged $25 on a $75 rental for returning the vehicle early. The clerk made no mention of that although she did tell me that "if you come back early you can put the keys here". No more Dollar for me.

Drop off was drop and goUpfront with “managers choice” special the car just ended up being the smallest compact car they had. Also we asked for a ride to the airport and it was a hard no.
8.0 Excellent2021 Mar 02
Staff was very nice. Drop off was fine and it was easier to get to in the early morning hours.The tank was not totally full when I got it. My fault for not noticing or calling in. I still haven’t gotten a receipt via email.

Apparently I booked with Hertz in Brownsville instead of at the Brownsville airport. The two behaved like separate entities. Not enough space here to go into detail, but they could've handled this much better.

GreatThey didn’t have a minivan though upgraded me to a suburban for free. My experience in the past is to get the next cheapest option.Drop off

Good customer servicePrice was over value Need to be cheaper That vehicle wasn’t worth it for that price
4.0 Okay2021 Apr 27
The person working the counter on the morning of 04/24/2021, was dishonest and cagey. The entire process was a waste of time he stated that the car would was being washed and would be ready in 30 minutes, after more than hour he was stating the same lies and would just walk away and go outside.If the vehicle is not available just tell me it is not even though I had a reservation. Just wasting time waiting for a car that is not going to be available. Do not lie and expect that a customer would be satisfied. I had to use a different company that had a car available at a lower price and was able to rent without any problems
2.0 Mediocre2021 Apr 08
Nothing because they canceled my rental the day before I was supposed to get my rentalIt would have been better if they didn’t gave me false hope by letting me book the rental. If they don’t have the car to be rented, they shouldn’t let me book or reserve the car. In allowing me to reserve, they have stopped me from looking for a better alternative

Top tips for renting a car in Brownsville

  • Car rentals in Brownsville are a convenient way to explore the interesting attractions both in the city and the surrounding region, including the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park. Having access to your own vehicle also makes it easy to travel to popular nearby cities, like Harlingen and Rio Bravo. Head to sights that are removed from the city center, such as the Boca Chica State Park, which is known for having great swimming opportunities and is around a 20min drive from the city’s downtown.
  • Those that are interested in Brownsville car rentals can pick them up directly from Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport. The airport’s car rental center can be conveniently found just near the Arrivals Terminal, after the baggage claim. It is within walking distance, so you don’t need to take a taxi or shuttle to arrive here. There are a few different on-site companies to choose between, and some options include Avis, Budget, and Enterprise.
  • Brownsville is known for having many small streets that are winding, particularly along the waterfront, which can be confusing to navigate if you’re not familiar with the region. To help prevent yourself from getting lost, you can add a GPS to car rentals in Brownsville. The city also has many cyclists, so keep your eyes open for them when driving to prevent getting in a collision.
  • Highways 4, 48, and 83 generally have a high amount of traffic during rush hour, as these are the main roads in and out of the city. If you want to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam, it’s recommended to not drive on these highways between the hours of 8-9:30am and 5-6:30pm. Although the city’s climate is normally warm and temperature, it rains quite often, which generally makes the roads particularly slippery. If you find yourself driving in a storm, decrease your speed limit and drive with extra caution.
  • Book your rental car in Brownsville at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Brownsville are around 51% cheaper than other car types, on average
