5.2 Okay2020 Oct 22
Pros: Drop off was difficult and unclear. There was only a small sign saying that budget was closed and to return car to avis. this should have been told to me at the time of pickup to avoid complications catching my flightCons: they should have disclosed that they would not be "open" during my return hours and how to return the vehicle to prevent issues when trying to catch my flight after spending 30 minutes driving around the rental area and airport trying to figure it out for myself
9.6 Excellent2020 Sep 09
Pros: The gal that escorted us to our vehicle was excellent. Made a nice upgrade gesture that significantly enhanced our trip.Cons: I should have been told during my order placement that u were offering a 3rd party insurance company where u would have required me to use my deductible...then “I” would have to get reimbursed from the insurance company. Sneaky!
2.0 Mediocre2020 Aug 23
Pros: Never picked upCons: Should Have been notified that I needed to use my credit card at least a week before I had to pick up. I won’t be using enterprise ever again
9.6 Excellent2020 Aug 03
Pros: The renting process at both airports and the car were great.Cons: The website and confirmation. Other than going into the Kayak System, I had no email confirmation about my rental. So I was nervous that the reservation did not truly exist. It did, but without some confirmation, it was difficult. I would also like it if there were notifications sent the day before confirming the reservation and what to expect.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Jul 27
Pros: Nothing.Cons: I rented a convertible to drive away from my wedding to our reception. They called me 10 minutes before pickup and said “whoever rented the convertible didn’t bring it back last night.” Upon calling them a second time and speaking to another representative, he informed me they never have convertibles, so whoever spoke to me the first time lied to me. Then he told me they couldn’t help me find the convertible at another local Enterprise and that they wouldn’t honor my Kayak prices. I spent over an hour ON MY WEDDING DAY on hold and talking to various clueless, helpless, hand-wringing local and corporate Enterprise employees. Long story short, we had to rent a convertible from Alamo and they were *AWESOME*, but it ended up being triple the price. Stay away from Enterprise. They’re hapless.
7.2 Good2020 Jul 22
Pros: Staff was very helpful and check in was super speedy. Vehicle was very clean and well outfitted.Cons: Due to Covid the rental offices of a number of rental agencies had been combined to a central location, a fact that was not relayed to myself or many renters as there was lots of confusion with folks picking up and dropping off vehicles. People should be advised to call their rental provider for updated information on new operating system.
9.2 Excellent2020 Jul 05
Cons: Inside of the car cleaner, dog hair all over
8.4 Excellent2020 Jul 01
Pros: Your staff was very nice and did the best they can do with all this Covid stuff going on. Returning was super easy and fast!Cons: Actually I really didn’t like my van. It was fine and it fit my family. I drive an suv at home so I would of preferred that but they are costly to rent. But all in all enterprise was great and I’ll use enterprise again. Thanks!☺️
3.2 Mediocre2020 Jun 16
Pros: Drop off was easyCons: The first car was so smoky that the family we rented it for, with two young children, could hardly stand the smell. They traded that car in for another one at the coast and that car was dirty (in a pandemic, when the car should have been sanitized) and also smoky.
2.8 Mediocre2020 Jun 09
Cons: They would not take my debit card to make the payment.

8.0 Excellent2021 Feb 23
Pros: The car was clean, good on gas, and supported Android Auto, which was a HUGE plus for me.Cons: The car smelled like tobacco, which definitely would've been a problem for more sensitive noses.
8.0 Excellent2021 Feb 22
Cons: Customer service for this booking was very slow.
10.0 Excellent2021 Jan 19
Pros: Although it’s a small space it was great to go to a rental place that had the space for vehicles and great price for rental.Cons: It could not have gone better. When I rent again I wish I could select the same model but I understand that’s not possible.
10.0 Excellent2021 Jan 03
Pros: Pickup staff were excellent. Car got good mileage (over 35 mpg)Cons: Car was worn out, sounded like water swishing around in dashboard, car had tears in seat, filthy film on a glass, low air pressure, near bald tires
2.0 Mediocre2020 Nov 22
Pros: The staff was not friendly and they made up rules to prevent us from renting cars from their facility.Cons: Do NOT rent from this location!
10.0 Excellent2020 Sep 24
Pros: Staff was helpful -- check-in was fast. We were in and out very quickly and the return was equally easy.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Aug 03
Pros: They booked me had charged me for a rental that was never even booked. When I got there I looked ridiculous with no reservation.Cons: Stop taking money and booking things that are not available.
7.6 Good2020 Jul 25
Pros: Staff was fine, but I wanted a rental at RDA and it was off site. The car didn’t hold 5 adults and two pieces of luggage as promisedCons: The Airport location could have taken us to the other location without us needing to spend &50.00 on a ride. Since it was a prepaid we had no way of changing the reservation
10.0 Excellent2020 Jun 10
Pros: Staff was friendly and efficientCons: I'd prefer that the office was within walking distance of my house so that I didn't even have to drive to pickup the car. :-)
4.4 Okay2020 Mar 12
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful, car was in good working order.Cons: Kayak's booking stated pick-up was at RDU airport. However, upon arrival, the booking was actually for a site 10 minutes away. The booking fee was not honored at the airport location and I had to pay $60 extra for the rental. The agent said this has happened before when using third party bookings, they don't distinguish the airport location from locations near the airport. Disapointing.

8.0 Excellent2020 Dec 29
Pros: Considering the conditions of COVID, the young lady was very helpful and checked me in quickly and when I returned the car the same girl waited on me again and made my car return and easy transitionCons: The location in the mall is horrible, bad parking and hard to find. I drove around the mall twice before I was able to find the location of Budget. Also when I got in the car, it was clean, however the car had a strong marijuana odor. I did report this to the clerk at the counter, she made note of it. But because of the timing and the lack of cars available I went ahead and took the car anyhow. But it was unpleasant to drive a car with that odor when you are a non user and a non smoker.
6.8 Good2019 Jul 07
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful and the process was simpleCons: More locations with slightly later drop off hours
2.8 Mediocre2019 Mar 21
Pros: The car got me from point A to point B comfortably.Cons: The car didn't have rims and was dirty when I picked it up. No attendant at pickup location, waited for 30 minutes before the attendant arrived. Attendant at drop off had me stand outside in the rain while he remarked about the condition of the car.
4.4 Okay2018 Dec 09
Not impressedCons: The check in process was awful and took 45 minutes. The mans clmpjter was down so he spent 15 mins trying to reboot, then had to do everything manually. Then the only behicle he has was a pickup truck when I needed an economy vehicle. The truck was dented and had stains/crumbs all over the inside.
10.0 Excellent2018 Oct 31
Lisa SPros: Although the location was hard to find, the pick up process was painless, it was like a scavenger hunt.Cons: That the location was hard to b yind
7.6 Good2018 Oct 14
Pros: Anne was amazing! She was able to help me get a vehicle when I had no reservation.Cons: The price paid for a pickup truck was excessive.
2.0 Mediocre2018 Aug 19

6.8 Good2018 Jul 07
Pros: Rapid and effective counter person. Free upgrade appreciated. Dirty car not appreciated.Cons: Condition of car. Dirtiest rental ever. Unwashed. Unvacuumed. Interior had spills not cleaned.
10.0 Excellent2018 Apr 09
Pros: Easy and quick service for pick up and drop off. Also, very good condition of the car. I drove 1420 miles without any issue at all.

8.0 Excellent2020 Dec 23
Pros: Both gals who helped me with pick up and then drop off were super.Cons: The pick up at the Raleigh NC mall 5 days before Christmas was very chaotic. I couldn't find the car once I had the keys, and the woman working was all alone so couldn't leave the desk inside the mall to help me find it. That was very time consuming and took much longer than it should have. Having dedicated and labeled Avis spots in the mall parking lot are a necessity, especially if Avis isn't going to hire extra help. She had to leave her post and help me find the car. She didn't know where it was either in the chaos of a mall parking lot before Christmas.
9.2 Excellent2019 Dec 09
Pros: Great car selectionCons: Mall location had a lot of traffic to navigate though. Not sure how this could be improved.
6.4 Good2019 Jul 22
Pros: I like how Avis stretched the definition of a "midsize" booking to include a Nissan Sentra. That's very creative.Cons: Leave lots of extra time to drop a car at the Wilmington (NC) airport. You have to find a parking space, unload your belongings, walk into the airport, and wait at the rental counter. And all of that counts against your return time. If that makes you "late" to return your car, it's an extra $30-50.
5.6 Okay2018 Mar 26
Dirty inside & outPros: No-hassel renting. Quick rental process, pickup, & dropoff.Cons: Car was filthy. Didn't have time to request a different car so I eventually vacuumed car out myself. Outside was dirty as if it had been driven in a little bit of snow. Called avis 800 # to complained and only offered $20 off future rental.
3.6 Mediocre2018 Jan 09
Filthy CarCons: Dirtiest rental car I've ever seen. Interior and exterior were dirty.
2.4 Mediocre2017 Sep 03
Least attentative desk personnelCons: The Avis representative in Raleigh was one of the worst experiences I've had. He literally left the desk and I didn't know what to do with the keys or car or exactly where to leave them. They were not helpful at all on where to park the car. They really did not do anything at all and I did not get any confirmation that the car with properly taken care of from the Avis Staff in Raleigh
2.0 Mediocre2016 Oct 21
No Cars!!!Pros: Received a text when I landed at RDU that they had no cars for my reservation!!! I was left to find another car on my own!!!! Never again would I consider Avis!
