The mini van was hybrid. Got the same mpg as an economy car with way more space and comfort. Pick up and drop off was seemless and staff was friendly.
7.9 GoodSep 23 2021
Our flight was changed and we got to the airport early, our vehicle wasn't available but they gave us another one and enjoyed getting to use a hybrid. Thanks.

Our first car smelled like pot. They were generally accommodating in letting us swap out for a new car. But the second car smelled like cigarettes. I agreed to pay Budget in return for a clean, safe, rental car. They didn't really hold up their end of the bargain but I still had to uphold mine.

Rented car for one day for a trip between airports. Extremely expensive price per day and received the car in terrible condition. The car had not been cleaned: cigarettes, many wrappers (including one from a container of alcohol), and napkins were left in the car. The car smelled strongly of smoke, too. It is disappointing to spend a high daily rate on a rental car and for it to be handed over in a (very) dirty condition, especially mid-pandemic. Additionally, when I rented the car I selected a compact car with room for two bags. One standard size and one carry-on size bag did not fit in the trunk.

Pick up and drop off were efficient.Drop off box was hard to find and there was a crowd at the desk. Better signage would have helped.

The staff was great and the car was clean.Lots of damage to the car and nobody did a walk around or told me about it. I returned the car a day early and still was charged the full booking amount.
10.0 ExcellentNov 25 2020
Staff was excellent and very friendly. Wish I had paid more attention as to where the car was located. Had to walk around the lot "beeping" the car to find it.No instructions on how to use keyless car. Card or manual in glove box would be helpful. 1. Step on brake to start car while pushing start/stop button. 2. How to open the gas tank and where it's located. 3. Toll E Z Pass use. 4. How to open rear door on SUV. Not all of us have these features in our cars. And no visual indicators for this inside car. It was trial and error finding skills. Called my sister who knew how to open gas tank, I would have never found it!. Both SUV's I rented were a little different with these things. But both were very comfortable and made for a great drive.

The young women at this location were both exceptional in Customer Service, Friendliness and Service! They both seemed to enjoy their jobs. The shuttle drivers were also prompt, helpful and friendly. My experience could not have been better. I would highly recommend renting from this location!
5.9 OkayOct 10 2021
The Bangor Enterprise was closed at 3- our flight was delayed so we had no car. Ended up forfeiting our planned hotel so we could stay overnight and pick up car tickets lathe next day. Every other rental co was open. Everything else was fine and they did adjust our rate. Check the hours if operations
1.9 HorribleSep 13 2021
Enterprise closes at 6pm. There are no details about this on the confirmation email. I also called ahead to tell them that our flight was delayed and they gave no warning. Very poor service.

The Enterprise in Bangor is not at the airport. When we arrived at 6pm (for our 6pm pickup) and called for the shuttle we were told that Enterprise was closed. We lost a night of our vacation.

Pick and return to person was very responsive and very nice/understanding. Car I picked up had a plastic bottle and old receipts under the seat, it had not been cleaned under the seats!
10.0 ExcellentJun 12 2021
The pick up was quick and easy. I was on the road in about 20 minutes.The shuttle took a few minutes to pick us up at the airport, but we didn't wait too long.

NothingArrogant manager over books and then just casually tells you he has no cars and you’re 10 on the waiting list... enjoy your vacation!

The call center rep was cluelessThere was not a car available at the airport. So the call center representative said there was a car available in the city I was in. I did not think you had a office there. So, I asked him if he was sure twice. He said yes. I walked to the street he gave me. There was not a office. I checked the reservation. The office was 15 miles away in another city. i took a taxi. It was closed. I called your call center They were rude and did not understand why i was upset.

We rented a car at the Bangor Airport and the rental lot was right across the street from the airport...so not having to worry about a shuttle was a bonus. The car was clean, and very fuel efficient! I will rent from Avis again!

We just spent a month in Maine and rented a car from Avis at Bangor airport. We made reservations via an online travel site and received confirmation for a car 7/31 til 9/2. When we checked the car out at airport the clerk claimed we requested the car until 8/31. Clerk said manager would call me the next day; no call came. When I called Avis 800 I was told they only rented cars for no more than one month and they could not extend the rental until 9/2. So, I had to drive to airport and turn the car in on 8/31. Fortunately a friend came to my rescue for the next 2 days. In addition I don’t think the car was ‘premium’ and the speedometer etc was in metric system so I had to learn to convert kilometers to miles. Not too bad.
1.9 HorribleSep 1 2021
My flight was cancelled by airlines and rescheduled a day later. Avis did not offer to honor my rental car arrangements with pickup 24 hrs later. Instead insisted I start over with new reservation with less discount available. More money to Avis!
1.9 HorribleAug 12 2021
Was given a car that smelled horribly of marijuana. Staff didn’t care and manager was disinterested.
3.9 MediocreJul 24 2021
When you walk out of office at Bangnor airport the Avid cars are marked to the right but some have signs arefacing right and not left so you don’t see some cars. When we reached, it was raining and i had to go back inside and ask again where our rental car was parked. They were not too helpful explaining it. I was soaked. Not a good experience.
4.0 OkayMay 12 2021
The gas tank could have been filled rather than half empty and the license tans could have been legal. They expired two months back and I worried about being stopped the whole time for expired plates.

Vehicle was fine until it rained. Tires were bald and it was a danger on the roadReplace the tires before someone is seriously hurt
