Pros: Agent was helpfulCons: Car didn’t start on day 2. Battery came disconnected. Didn’t have the right model. Price was high. Didn’t inform us of office hours. Vehicle was not comfortable. Couldn’t extend rental online. Will not use Hertz again.
5.2 Okay2020 Aug 08
Pros: Reservation was quick and easy. Process for getting the car and returning it was painless.Cons: Car was disgusting inside. Some kid in the very back seat had ground a cracker or cookie all over half of the headliner. Had to take disinfectant wipes to all surfaces. Let the check in attendant know and all he told me was that he would look at it. Not impressed.
5.6 Okay2020 Mar 12

Pros: The pickup was easy, but the drop off was like, "ok, thank you, have a good day"Cons: I wish the drop off would have been just as good as the pickup. Also allow others to smell the inside of the car before they sign.

9.6 Excellent2018 Oct 13
Pros: Pick up in Chattanooga was quick, easy, and pleasant.
6.8 Good2017 Oct 10
Pros: Allowed a oneway drop off at Knoxville when travel plans had to change.Cons: The enterprise location made me take a $17 dollar taxi to the second location located a very short distance from airport. It was my mistake in original booking but they made no effort to assist me other than informing me that I was at the "wrong" location.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Oct 08
Enterprise cancels reservation - and makes a new one for 4x original!!Cons: A cancelled reservation because of late arrival.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Jul 22
Cons: When I got there, they did not have a car for me and would not have a car for me. Said I booked it online, so was not their problem. I was on a very tight time schedule and the delay of having to find another car ended up causing me to miss a flight that evening. An interesting chain of events.
7.2 Good2017 Jul 21
Pros: the vehicleCons: the vehicle had stuff in it from another renter.also it took 30 min to get help when i returned vehicle.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jul 17
Excellent service and valuePros: I rented a full-size vehicle for an exhaustive month long trip out west. I shopped around for several months before deciding on the Enterprise Lee Hwy location for my rental. They beat all their competitors in both the Nashville and Chattanooga markets. When I arrived, Robert was the person who handled my rental. He was excellent in both customer service and knowledge of the rental procedures. I chose a Hyundai Sonata and couldn't have been more pleased with the car's performance and comfort. Thank you Enterprise and especially the Lee Hwy Chattanooga location for an excellent experience. I will definitely rent from you again.Cons: Nothing, everything was great.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jun 01
Pros: The car had plenty of leg room in the back, and trunk space was sufficient for 2 small suitcases and 3 travel bags. Air conditioning worked great. No problems during our trip. No hassle at time of return. Would rent again.

Pros: The ease of pick-up / drop-off.Cons: Great job !
2.0 Mediocre2019 Oct 18
Cons: I was charged almost double and called in 4 times all different people and could not get resolved. I booked the car for pick up at Hixon TN in my error. I picked the car up at the Airport which is what I needed. The reservation was changed for pick up not drop off so I had to call into change it. The rate was not quoted, I found my reservation which showed $175.00 my charge was $320.07. I was told nothing could be done until I returned the car. When I returned the car 2.5 hours early I asked for a re-rate and was told it would not make a difference. I am aware airport fees raise the rental rate but not by almost double. For the price the car should be cleaned to include in side the windows and dry it off. The care windows inside were dirty and like most rental companies the car is just hosed off.
4.4 Okay2019 Jul 17
Cons: Price was an additional $200 for only an 8 hour difference (midnight pickup vs 8am) and did not get car type which was booked. Would have much preferred to save the money.
2.0 Mediocre2019 May 08
Pros: Budget customer service was awful and they actually couldn’t help me with any of my needs.Cons: Budget would be better if they weren’t trying to charge me a $383 fee to rent a Toyota RAV4 for less than 24 hours.

4.0 Okay2017 Nov 16
Cons: When I arrived to pick up the car, I was told they didn't have a car for me and it would be available until 1pm if it was brought back. When I called Customer Service, I was told to go to the air port and they would have a car for me there When I arrived there, they told me I wasn't scheduled to pick up the car until 3pm. They were wanting me to wait 3 hrs. for the car I reserved for 12pm. Then when all was said and done, I had to pay $40.00 more than the original price in order to get the car at the time I originally scheduled it for. POOR Service all around. The man in Chattanooga was HORRIBLE!!! He called at 11:30 to inform me the car wasn't going to be there. I asked why he didn't call sooner and he had no answer. HE SUCKS!! POOR additude!!!@

Never made it to my carPros: Not applicable. I flew into Chattanooga Airport to find that the rental was off- lot, which was fine. I was told that there was a shuttle that Dollar provided for customers. I waited for a little bit, as I was told that it came around. After 20 minutes, I began to call the rental. I tried calling for 25 minutes and NO ONE answered the phone. It was getting late and I ended up having to use a different company. I ended up getting charged way more. I am extremely disappointed with Dollar and the inconvenience caused. I can no longer recommend or use.Cons: ot applicable.

Cons: Kayak quoted me $23, ended up paying over $60 at Dollar. I reserved an economy car as I was wanting something good on gas and was given a Jeep SUV. Not at all what I was expecting! Should have gone to Enterprise!
2.0 Mediocre2017 Jun 12
Will not rent from Dollar.Pros: Did not rent.Cons: When we arrived at Dollar they informed us of several new charges... a charge for using a debit card, which was a Visa card and considered a major credit card. Most companies just hold a deposit on your card - they wanted to charge us additional fees per day. Also, they wanted to charge us additional fees for traveling to Indiana.. we had a reservation with unlimited miles and did not know about extra charges to additional states. So what was supposed to be a $38 rental turned into $99 in a matter of minutes. They also had to speak personally to our insurance agent (never had to do this before). We ended up not renting the car and driving our own vehicle which cost us 2 hours of driving time going back and forth to the rental company. I think the change was due to high demand on rentals for that weekend with several festivals going on in the area - they could get more for the vehicle with other rentals. Will not book rental cars through Dollar again.
4.0 Okay2017 Apr 24
Cons: The Dollar Rent A Car is located offsite at the airport. They are the only company, or so it appeared, that was like this. The other companies have their rental windows right next to baggage claim and the rental cars not too far outside the door. Walking around, it was confusing and not easy to understand where you were suppose to connect. The signage telling you to call them for a shuttle blends in with other airport advertising. Once you call for a shuttle you have to wait outside for 10 minutes and wait for the shuttle, take the 5 minute drive to the car rental place. I arrived at 11 :15 p.m. Their lot was dark and it didn't feel real safe. The car was OK. It was clean and it ran, but the overall hassle of not being at the airport would have made me pay a little extra for convenience.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Apr 04

Pros: Service was great and fast!
7.6 Good2017 Mar 27
Pros: The price was fabulous. The personnel were nice and gracious. The car was economical on gas. The shuttle driver was prompt both times. The cruise control worked properly. The car was relatively clean.Cons: The air conditioner did not work. It would only cool on the Maxair setting. It took me quite a while to figure this out. It was off airport. I had to take a shuttle back and forth. I had to inspect the car myself for any damage caused by the previous driver. An employee had not come to work for this shift, so it was left all to only 1 nice man to do both of their work. I paid for a Toyota Corolla. I received a tiny car with 4 doors. I was not instructed how to find any controls. I think it was a red escort. When I was getting on the highway, I noticed there were no lights, and I had to pull over and read the manual in the glove compartment. The wiper on the rear window was on, and I did not know how to turn it off. I had difficulty turning on and off the interior lights.

Pros: The employee, a young fellow, was very helpful to me. He even checked the tire pressure with a gauge when I mentioned that one front tire looked low. It was a little low. The car was perfect for us; it carried some furniture home, and we really enjoyed using Sirius XM to listen to music during our long drive home. Finally, the hybrid got super gas mileage during our drive to Washington, D.C., using only 1.5 tanks of gas.Cons: Nothing. Everything was fine.

TerriblePros: It would've been the price but I didnt get to rent itCons: Drove 35 miles to rent a car, they didnt take cash, or card over the phone or a prepaid Visa. I didnt have a debit card because I'm waiting on another one. They wouldnt take my husband's over the phone. My car is trash and I was hoping to rent from them so I could have a safe vehicle for mine and my daughter's trip. NOPE. Drove 70 miles round trip for nothing. Didnt even specify on the site either about the no card thing
8.8 Excellent2015 Oct 21
A fun ridePros: Booked an economy sedan, but when we got there, the desk agent asked whether we'd like a convertible VW bug instead for the same price. It was a fun ride up through TN and VA to Washington, DC, in our tomato-soup red bug!Cons: Perhaps because it had just come in, the car wasn't cleaned before we got it. The previous renter had obviously taken it to the beach, because there was sand on the floors, in the seat crevices, in the glove box, etc. Also, it would have been handy to have a copy of the car manual, as we had to figure out for ourselves which buttons worked the convertible roof and such. Finally, it was disappointing that the car had no USB ports, so we had no good way to listen to our devices or keep them charged during a 10-hour ride.
