10.0 ExcellentNov 25 2020
Pros: 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.Cons: 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.
8.8 ExcellentAug 18 2020
Pros: Easy to pick up and drop off. Nice car.Cons: We paid for EZ pass for tolls but the car was not equipped for it.
10.0 ExcellentOct 18 2019
Pros: Super easy pickup and drop-off. Very nice new car - perfect for our needs. No harassment for additional unnecessary insurance.
10.0 ExcellentOct 8 2019
Pros: The whole Process was very easyCons: Rental needed air in the tires upon pickup, parking lot for pickup drop-off could definitely be more well lit.
2.0 MediocreAug 2 2019
Cons: I booked the rental online but when I arrived no cars were available.
6.4 GoodJul 24 2019
Cons: Drop off was a hassle. Avis/Budget return spaces were full, with a vague sign saying to proceed to another floor, where there was no signage to indicate where to leave the car. The rental office isn't actually at the address listed, and neither is the garage where the car is returned.

2.0 MediocreFeb 16 2019
Pros: Vehicle was fine until it rained. Tires were bald and it was a danger on the roadCons: Replace the tires before someone is seriously hurt
5.6 OkaySep 20 2018
Bait and switchPros: Not muchCons: Lack of flexibility at pick up.
2.0 MediocreJul 31 2018
TerribleCons: They wouldn’t let me have the car bc my card I’d prepaid in full with was a MasterCard debit card (instead of a credit card), & also bc my return flight location didn’t match the location I was dropping off the rental car. The man a the counter said he couldn’t refund me, but gave me a 1-800 number to call instead. I spent about an hour on the phone during my vacation trying to get refunded. One time I was on hold for 20 minutes and the lady accidentally disconnected our phone call, so I had to call & go through the entire process again.A rental car company two counters over was more than happy to rent to me with my debit card & return flight that didn’t match the car drop off, with a price considerably less than Avis’s. I will never rent from Avis again.
10.0 ExcellentAug 15 2017

2.0 MediocreSep 7 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Arrogant manager over books and then just casually tells you he has no cars and you’re 10 on the waiting list... enjoy your vacation!
3.6 MediocreNov 4 2018
The call center rep was cluelessCons: There 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.

Enterprise servicePros: Quick plane to car turn around.
4.0 OkaySep 25 2017
ChaosPros: New carCons: Had rented an intermediate level car for fuel efficiency for the long one way drive. After waiting 30+ minutes for the rental shuttle to come to airport, we were taken to a dirty building that was chaotic. They didn’t have enough rentals so it was either take the inefficient SUV or wait even longer for another return. The SUV was dirty as well. The return location at Trenton airport lacks signs on the road telling you which lot to drop it off in as well as the prerecorded message when you call the location doesn’t help.
4.8 OkayJun 26 2017
Cons: car not clean. total of rental was over $200.00 not told of drop off charge when booked
9.2 ExcellentOct 17 2016
Pros: The people at the Bangor location were very nice - although I have to once again say that I have never had a better experience than what we have come to expect from Lance Reardon at your Ellsworth facility ...Lance is THE man!!!Cons: It is a very minor thing to mention, but I dislike when I get a car that has less than a full tank - it is easy to fill up before returning but I invariably overfill when I was given a car that was 3/4 or less
9.6 ExcellentOct 10 2016
10 minutes a ride and you are there !Pros: easy access, they pick you up just minutes after you call, Its such a small airport, this was so was and saved money! Realy quick, good service!Cons: my bill was 20.00 higher then I expected.the wind shield was dirty , but we just wiped it at the first gas station.

Ryan in Bangor was awesome...Pros: Ryan was so good with my rental ..Cons: Kind and courtesy was his strength.. Smart too
7.6 GoodSep 11 2016
MainePros: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The car worked perfect for what I needed and didnot think it was over priced. I will add again the staff was great there very very nice.Cons: I did not like that I had to take a shuttle from the airport. My big problem is when I dropped my car off I had a flight to catch, but I had to wait att he enterprise store which is 5 miles from the airport for the shuttle to return. I ended up having to wait 15 minutes.
