Arrived home safely. However, 6 hours into cross country trip from Boston to Scottsdale vehicle conked out. Waited 5 hours in rest stop in early evening and no-one came to help. Called Enterprise 25 times and were continuously looped through to different enterprise employees. They do not have on call service in case of breakdown of vehicle. Finally decided to drive vehicle - which we believed to be unsafe - to destination 2 hours away. Next morning drove to DC airport Enterprise for replacement vehicle. We had to take van - not the premium luxury SUV we rented - they had nothing similar. Then resumed trip only to find ourselves in snowstorm as we entered OK. White knuckled driving to our next stop because the van was sliding and skidding through the snow/ice. After arriving in Scottsdale discovered we needed to call numerous times to find similar vehicle. We never did. Albuquerque Enterprise branch was the only helpful branch - we were able to get SUV but it was not premium that we had initially rented. Upon our return the original branch reduced our rate and apologized.

They at least called to tell me the car I was to pick up that day, but had rented online a few days prior, was not availableIf they had called me before the day of the rental. The woman said they had been sold out of cars for days. I had rented it 2 or 3 days prior so they rented me a car that did not exist. They could have served me better to not rent me a car at all. Just tell me they aren't available so I don't have to end up paying more someplace else

Great Service Fair PriceLove the convenience of location and the young, courteous staff that made my experience easy from start to finish. They even upgraded to a better car which was much appreciated since it was raining out. They offered me a better price to rent for the weekend then I found at the airport and anywhere online. I will be returning.

Nice people there, and bring car to me very fast. I choose the lower price plan that let them pick whatever car they have to me, they give me a nice Toyota Sienna XLE Hybird, car is clean inside but they didn’t wash the exterior.

I needed to pick up and drop off AFTER hours, which I coordinated with Medford Hertz PRIOR to arriving. They educated me on joining the Hertz Gold Plus program and completing ANY car rental, to activate the after-hrs Medford pick up to "skip the counter". No one else had cars in Boston Logan, so the day before, I rented a car for a few hrs in my hometown in order to get the Medford MA skip the counter car. The rest of my experience was great too! If you try to pick up after they are closed and don't pre-arrange, you will likely NOT get a car. Thank you Shavaun!

4.0 OkayMay 10 2021
The staff who helped me at pick-up was very kind.1. the car smelled like cigarettes. 2. They did not have the class of vehicle which I reserved, and I was given the worst vehicle i've driven in my life. I needed a car for a golf trip, and the vehicle I was given couldn't even fit 1 bag of golf clubs in the trunk.
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
The staff was excellentThe broken rear view mirror was a repeating problem. It would not stay in position. I had to stop numerous times to readjust it because it would close onto the door while on the highway making it impossible to see out the back on the right side of the van. Not acceptable.

10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2020
The staff at Hertz Rental Car were helpful & friendly. The car was comfortable & was the best price out there. The office was in a location that was easy to get to.The Hertz location that I went to did not accept debit cards. It would have made my experience much better if I had been informed of that ahead of time as I had to go back home to get my credit card. Even better, I thought they did not have a viable reason for not accepting debit cards in the first place.

Car smelled as if four people Chain smoked in it. Rental agency had no other cars on the lot to exchange. Felt sick entire time - smell was so strong. I ordered a VW Jetta and got a Chevy Malibu.

I love having a Hertz so close to home. Not a good choice if you're renting from the airport but for Camberville people, this is a great option!

The car is pretty cleanBudget desk is in the Charles river hotel which is not difficult to find as long as you ask the hotel employee. However when we returned the car, the lady had a terrible attitude. There's a long line and it's almost closed which is not our fault but she still yelled at us

The LDW was too expensive. There was no way to avoid paying the $4 fee per day for using electronic tolls, since in Massachusetts there is no cash option.

No car availableWe arrived on time and the representative saw our reservation in the computer system, but she said that there were no more cars available. She didn’t really apologize or offer any other solutions like connecting us with another location. She just said they had no car and she couldn’t help us.

Horrendous Overall ExperienceCar was clean with the exception of one bag of chips that was still in there from the previous renterHorrible customer experience. Waited 2.5 hours for my car and did not get the car I rented. Also, I asked to prepay for the gas, but was charged over $9/gallon upon my return. When speaking with customer service they explained that they couldn't do anything about it because it wasn't on my contract (admittedly my mistake for only skimming my contract after waiting there for 2.5 hours). After speaking for a while with them, they knocked it down to $6/gallon, but said they were unable to go any lower and that my horrible rental experience had nothing to do with the gas charge and that there was nothing they could do further. They also rejected my request to explain to a supervisor what had happened. Will never rent from Budget again.

Great car, the team when we picked up was without cars but they did a great job informing us.We were picking up at another location initially by there was only one person working and she wasn't prepared to handle the anger people waiting directed at her. No cars, 2-5 hour waits, etc. we transferred out reservation to a different hotel and they were much better able to meet the needs of a busy day without any cars.

Had to cancelThere was a two hour wait to get the car. Ridiculous. They probably did not even have enough cars to fill the reservations. Had to cancel.

The best thing about my Avis experience was the people! Everyone was friendly and efficient, and personable. Pickup was quick, with no pressure for upsells. Dropoff was really fast, someone met me at my car door with a pen to take down the mileage. The car was clean, with no strong smell.

Friendly staff, very clean and fairly comfortable car for a tall driver.Desk was hard to find - directions could have been more clear. Dropoff took far longer than it needed to because there was only one staff member to handle ~10 pickups/dropoffs at 5 pm on Sunday.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 18 2019
The location was good and the staff was generally polite and helpful.Their office organization is not great. We waited an oddly long time both getting the car and dropping it off. Dropping it off was a bit tedious, we had to wait behind 4-5 people getting cars when all we needed to do was hand in the paperwork, it was already paid for. Seemed unnecessary.

Crooked bribery at pickup, overcharged at dropoddNothingPhone agent didn’t tell me Cambridge, MA rental office closed at my appointed pick up time (6:00). Counter person refused to rent to me until I bribed her $20. When I dropped off car, person overcharged me $100 and refused to say why, forcing me to call customer service and sit on hold for an hour. Will never rent from AVIS again.

AVIS hours and policy for extention BADCar was fine, person at desk was niceTrying to return the car 2 hours later and it wasn't possible, was charged 130$ more because the rental office isn't open past certain hours on Sunday night. Compared to Enterprise, where you can return anytime even during closed hours, this was a shock and cost me twice as much for my rental in the end. Very disappointed with AVIS for this reason and will never use them again.

We provided with a wrong car rental pickup location. We had to rent another car from a different company. We lost an hour for getting different car. We requested full refund from the credit card company. We are very disappointed.

Booked the car online in advance and got the order number. But when I went to pick up the car the office was closed and there was no staff, but the address was confirmed correct, almost 60 minutes back and forth to the hotel for this. unacceptable!

Thrify car rental convenient to Logan airportit was very straightforward to take public transit to this Thrifty location from Logan, for no charge and it took perhaps a half-hour which I thought fast. My car performed well and was both new and clean on the inside.

Poor Customer ServiceThey don't have any information. Their policies are waste. Their toll charges are compulsory if you don't take it they put fine on you. Thier insurance charges are ao high. Just having car charges low as compared to other companies doesn't matter overall thrifty is super expensive including all insurance toll and other services. They don't have decent cars too.

Small office, but decent serviceCar and service was as expected.Separation of collision and liability insurance was a surprise, but it turns out that's common.
3.2 MediocreOct 21 2016
I had booked my car rental 4 months in advance to ensure I would get the car I wanted for a road trip through New England. However, when I got to Thrifty they said they could not find the keys for the car I had requested. I had wanted a small car to save on gas mileage and the elevation I would be driving on. Instead they gave me a mid size car that went through a lot of gas. Also, the car reeked of cigarette smoke. The smell was so strong we had to invest in air freshners which did very little for the smell. I had tried spraying perfume as well which was only a momentary fix. We kept the windows down for most of the drive. When we would turn on the AC, a very sour smell would come through the vents. Also, we had been told rolls would be covered; however, before leaving we told the car had not been registered to EZ Pass so we would be responsible for all tolls, which added up. Long story short, do not rent from this company.
