5.6 OkayNov 2 2020
Pros: Staff was initially friendly. I was given a bigger car than expected.Cons: Because the car was washed before I received it, both the rental agent and I did not notice a major scratch on the trunk. I was accused of creating the scratch. Also, there was also visible damage to the windshield and the car no longer had a key remote opener. It seemed like I was knowingly given a car that was damaged to be charged for damage. I will never rent from this Enterprise, and possibly any Enterprise. I don't trust them .
4.0 OkayJun 17 2020
Pros: The service! Very aggressive very poor. Not very friendly as I arrived I was aggressively pushed out of the building because no one cannot come in the building because what is going on these days.Cons: Let the customer know that they cannot come in the building signs it still doesn’t help out that much some people just walk in the building as we do before. If someone walks in the door say hi please stand outside the building in a professional manner not aggressively Walking towards the customer aggressively With their hand up and stand outside towards the customer.
8.8 ExcellentSep 9 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly and had great customer service.Cons: We traveled to Austin for a wedding and the car wheel was shaking when accelerating to speeds above 60 on the highway. There was a bit of a concern about the maintenance on the car.
9.6 ExcellentJul 29 2019
Cons: For the most part it was awesome experience thank you
8.8 ExcellentNov 27 2018
Nissan reviewPros: The staff was great.Cons: The car smell some like smoke and the Radio speakers on right side were played full blast by last rental and were busted and had almost no radio for a long trip.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 28 2017
Awesomous Maximimus!Pros: The genuine nature of the person assisting me felt sincere. She was polite friendly and despite the busy environment, surprisingly cool calm and collected.Cons: My expectations were exceeded by how nice and clean was the vehicle. I used to be a professional chauffeur for many years in New York City and later Dallas. It makes an unspoken statement about the integrity of a company.
9.2 ExcellentOct 31 2016
Cons: I was surprised that my car did not have cruise control. I think this was the first car I've seen in ten years without cruise control. That's the only reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating.

4.0 OkayJan 1 2021
Pros: Great location to pick up vehicle. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Vehicle was roomy and comfortable for 2 adults and 2 children.Cons: One of the tires had a slow leak. The tires must have been rotated with the recent oil change and the sensors were not updated. It took me $$ and a sheriff to finally figure out which tire was low.

Top tips for renting a car in Arlington

  • A car rental in Arlington will make your stay more convenient and flexible. Renting a car would especially be ideal in Arlington as the region doesn’t have an extensive public transportation system. With a rental car, you can visit the numerous attractions in North Arlington, such as Six Flags Over Texas and River Legacy Parks, as well as sites in rural Arlington, including the fun-filled Triple T Stables outside the city.
  • Arlington Municipal Airport, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, and Dallas Love Field are the airports close to Arlington. Arlington Municipal Airport is only 5 miles from the city center, but as it is a reliever airport for the other two, it doesn’t have a Car Rental Center. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, located 16 miles from Arlington, allows you easy access to Arlington car rentals. Its Car Rental Center features various companies, including Budget, Avis, Dollar, and Hertz, which you book through KAYAK. Getting to the center is easy as a Rental Car shuttle bus passes by the pick-up area on the lower-level terminal every 10-15min. Dallas Love Field is 26 miles driving distance from Arlington and has Car Rental Center onsite. The center operates in the hallway leading to baggage claim and has counters for companies like Hertz, Avis, Dollar, Budget, and Enterprise. For increased comfort, a Rental Car shuttle passes by every few minutes and gets you to the lower transportation levels.
  • Arlington prides itself in an established network of highways. Major expressways that allow you in and out of Arlington include Tom Landry Freeway, Texas-360 Highway, Pioneer Parkway, Interstate 20, and Highway 287. Numerous other roads stem from the major ones to help you maneuver the city with ease. While driving, keep an eye out for jaywalkers. Jaywalking is illegal in Texas but remains fairly common.
  • The morning rush hour along major Arlington roads starts at around 7am and lasts for about 2h. It features relatively heavy traffic running northbound on Texas-360 Highway that peaks after approximately thirty minutes but declines steadily afterward. In the afternoon, the rush hour begins at about 3pm. You may have to keep off Highway 360 in the afternoon as it has characteristic heavy traffic that runs southbound. If you are planning to drive to the airport during rush hour, give yourself extra time to arrive on time.
