Pros: Personnel wss great and understanding
2.0 Mediocre2019 Oct 25
Pros: On Oct. 18 the Dollar agent couldn't scan my card. Asked to type in the number, he simply said, we don't do that. We can't rent you the car you reserved. The Enterprise agent six feet away, did scan my card and gave a polite explanation of why none of them could type in my number.Cons: Dollar could spend the money to train their agents better with regard to common courtesy if not professional decorum.

10.0 Excellent2017 Oct 25
Smooth transaction all the way around.Pros: Was upgraded to a Suburban at no additional cost!
4.0 Okay2017 Aug 16
Pros: Car was great clean drove well.Cons: Customer service is terrible. I tried to extend my rental by one day according to my contract it was 14.85 and it took an hour of talking to people who obviously can't speak English very well to then connect me to the actual location who then tried to charge me a weekly rate for one day. A contract is a contract and regardless of the fact you printed something you don't like at this point it's still enforceable over your policy of whatever. To try and convince me to add know you to violate your contract and charge me $156 to extend for one day when my contract plainly said $14.85 a day is almost fraud. But then to have an employee tell me if I don't like it then bring the car back on time or pay means not only will I never rent with you again or suggest anyone does, but also that I'll refer it to the state attorney and the BBB. It's a disgrace for supposed p ET pole to want to extort money out if you by trying to enforce the very contract they are wanting to violate. Pathetic.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jul 12
Excellent service with a smile!Pros: I arrived a little early and the car was ready to go. No add on to the price and a great overall experience.

Pros: A stone hit and cracked our windshield while traveling, and they swapped out our van at a different location in under 1 hour. Outstanding!
10.0 Excellent2020 Aug 05
Pros: EverythingCons: Nothing
8.0 Excellent2020 Jul 20
Cons: Winchester Rd location did not allow you to park your personal vehicle in their lot, which I was never told prior to arrival....but other than that, very good experience
2.0 Mediocre2020 Jul 14
Pros: It was a car that ranCons: I ordered a truck and had to take a car, really needed the truck thats why I reserved the truck
2.0 Mediocre2020 Jun 29
Cons: Arrived to pick up the car and they “are out of cars”. Had reservation for over 10 days. No one tried to notify me that the car was unavailable. I was not offered an alternative and was not given any apology! Was simply told it’s the “virus” and there’s nothing they could do. I was 3rd in line for pickup that day and the people in front of me did not get rentals that day either. I will NEVER use Enterprise again!
8.0 Excellent2019 Sep 05
Pros: Drop off was very easy and fast.Cons: We had ants in our van. Also, took way too long to pick up car.
2.0 Mediocre2018 Sep 15
Car not available at my scheduled time!Cons: Ended up having to scramble and rent from another company as they didn't have a car available at my appointed rental time!
8.4 Excellent2018 Aug 07
Pros: After a miscommunication when I found out last minute that I could not be picked up from my hotel, Enterprise reimbursed my Lyft fare to get to their location.Cons: Long wait to pickup the vehicle
6.8 Good2018 Apr 17
I was charged more than stated on the sign upPros: Vehicle was fine and convenience to airport was amazing!Cons: The fact that I was charged $34 per day plus taxes, etc. for a rental that was “booked” at $25 per day.
7.2 Good2018 Feb 06
Not new car smell.Pros: Car was cheap and practical.Cons: The car smelled as if someone had smoked in it and their was an attempt to cover it up. We had to spray our own freshener in it so we could handle it for a quick two day trip.

7.6 Good2020 Aug 24
Pros: The staff was very polite and helpful. The pickup and drop off was very easy.Cons: The car we rented had been smoked in. I should have asked for a different car.
9.6 Excellent2020 Jul 19
Pros: Van was almost new and in great shape. Easy pick up experience and quick drop offCons: Put some sort of sign visible from street at San Diego drop off. Took me quite some time to find the office, unlike in Lexington.
10.0 Excellent2019 Oct 28
Pros: Friendly, great service and good car.
5.2 Okay2019 Jun 11
Pros: At drop off in Hanford California the staff was very helpful and apologetic for the condition of the vehicle that I received from the pick up location in Kentucky.Cons: The company in Kentucky where I rented the vehicle did not clean the vehicle, wash the dead bugs off the windshield, did not service the vehicle before I rented it. I had to replace the windshield wipers before I could drive it on vacation.
10.0 Excellent2019 Apr 12
Pros: Efficient easy .Cons: Book on line for availability!
4.8 Okay2019 Mar 25
Pros: Staff was rude and not helpful. The original car I was given had a technical issue in which the wheel was shaking when the car approached 55 miles per hour. The only thing the front desk person kept saying to me was bring it back or call another location versus finding a car a different location.Cons: Hire better customer service oriented individuals.
8.4 Excellent2018 Jul 26
Good Rental.Pros: Car performed well. Pick up and drop off seamless. I all worked out very good overall.Cons: Car was not totally clean. The worst part was a film on the INSIDE of the windshield with lots of glare. It took some work and some product to get it off. This Hertz location leaves a little to be desired. VERY little parking out front for pick up and drop off. Now that I know some tricks, it will be better in the future. It would help if they had additional parking marked.
7.2 Good2018 Jun 19
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: I booked the pickup for 8 am, showed up at 8:40, but the car was still not ready. It was being cleaned. Didn't leave with car until 9am. Not a huge deal, but the delay was inconvenient.
2.0 Mediocre2018 Jun 15
Worst Experience Ever With Rental CompanyPros: The price.Cons: we reserved our car through this site, which eventually went through priceline. we paid for our car when we reserved it. two weeks later, we go to pick up the car at 6pm, the scheduled pick up time on our itinerary, and the location we had selected was closed. Their store hours had them closing at 6pm, the same time as our pickup time. i call Hertz to get it sorted out and asked for a similar car at a different location 4 miles from where i had reserved this pickup. long story short, they say they cannot honor the price of the original reservation at the other location and the new price at the other location will be 500$ plus as opposed to the 190$ we had already paid for our original reservation. after 5 calls and countless transfers, and re-explaining the situation to each new person who spoke with us, we were eventually told there is nothing they can do about it and offered a refund for the original reservation. we didn't lose any money, but we lost several hours on the phone and ended up having to drive our own car for the 1700 mile trip. I've never been more frustrated with a service as I was with Hertz. I'll never rent from them again.
7.6 Good2018 Apr 10
Pros: The car was in excellent shape.Cons: There was as little space to park and return the car.

5.2 Okay2019 Jul 07
Pros: Leslie was very helpful and pleasant.Cons: The rental location was difficult to get into and our of, there was no wayfinding--no clearly designated area for parking, or returning the vehicle. It took an extremely long time to get the car--the car wasn't ready when we arrived, despite our reservation being made at least a month in advance.

Absolutely disgustingPros: Easy to get to in the airportCons: There car was absolutely disgusting. I have never been in such a filthy rental car. Sounded like it was going to break down on the highway the whole trip
10.0 Excellent2017 Oct 05
Pros: I liked the whole process. Everything was easy and the vehicle was very clean.Cons: Nothing, everything was great.
7.2 Good2017 Jun 20
Decent vehicle and the price was exactly as quoted.Pros: The vehicle was well equipped. A Ford Fusion with backup camera and bluetooth sound system. The leather seats were very comfortable.Cons: There were a number of body scratches and I was afraid I would get blamed for them since no one came outside with me when I picked up the car and no one noted the condition of the vehicle. It also wasn't clean, particularly the interior windshield.
2.0 Mediocre2016 Dec 26
Pros: They charged for me an hourly rate ($189) which they finally removed. Then I discovered they charged me for a tank of fuel when it was re turned with a full tank. Still awaiting a reply on the refund. Disappointing .
8.8 Excellent2016 Nov 29
Pros: Avis was great. Car was greatCons: The kayak deal didn't work. Tried to get a cheaper car cause kayak listed a shuttle to a different location that didn't exist. Costed more than planned.
7.2 Good2016 Apr 08
worst audio system everCons: This was the most infuriating experience with a car audio system ever. I don't know how anyone who uses a smartphone as an audio source could ever drive this car. When connected with a USB cable, so i could charge my phone, the system kept stopping the audio(podcasts app) and then switching to my music, randomly. I tried to just listen to music but it kept randomly stopping playback, sometimes restarting the song from the beginning, sometimes going to a completely different song, sometimes stopping entirely. I gave up trying to play from my phone and turned off audio in the car completely. while i left the phone plugged into USB to charge, but still, without me touching the phone or audio system, it would randomly open my music and start playing random songs through the audio system. I know my phone is not the problem because my personal car has a USB port integrated with the audio system and it works perfectly with my phone.

car wasn't at the confirmed pickup/drop off locationPros: nice carCons: i made sure to rent a car from a company away from the airport. when i went to pickup my car from the downtown location they told me that my reservation was at the airport. they were not helpful. my email confirmation clearly stated that the pickup and drop off location was at the downtown location. i ended up driving my truck to the airport, parking in long term parking, picking up my car, and making multiple trips back and forth from my truck to the rental car (about a quarter mile each way) to load the car. costumer service at budget was not helpful! i wasn't happy about any of this, i wasn't expecting to pay for long term parking. yuck.
10.0 Excellent2016 Dec 10
