Pros: Staff was very friendly. Easy in and out.
8.0 ExcellentMar 9 2021
Cons: Advertised car was unavailable
10.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2021
Pros: Drop off extremely easy.Cons: The value is not good.
10.0 ExcellentJan 20 2021
Pros: Quick service, brand new car
10.0 ExcellentDec 23 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and professional at both Boston and Trenton. I encountered some issues locating the proper pick up and drop off locations, otherwise everything went fine.Cons: A better description of the pickup location (in this case, which floor and building at Logan Airport) and how to drop off the car (in this case, that you have to get a ticket at the Trenton Airport parking lot and then bring it, the keys, and the mileage to the counter)
4.0 OkayDec 15 2020
Pros: The staff at the drop off and pick up were excellent. Very friendly and helpful.Cons: When I picked up the car the "Low Tire Pressure" light was on. I figured I would just add air to the tire, when I got to my destination. The next day the tire pressure was down to 16lbs of pressure. I observed a slow leak in the tire. I then drove to the Enterprise office, where they told me they had no other cars to give me. The Enterprise employee (who was very helpful) arranged for a car to be towed from another facility. After sitting in the car and waiting for three hours the car arrived. I don't blame the employee, she was excellent. I can't believe that Enterprise depletes inventory of vehicles, in case something occurs. If this occurred after hours, no vehicle would have been provided until the next day.
10.0 ExcellentDec 4 2020
Pros: The staff was extremely friendly. They asked if I needed any help with directions and were supportive.Cons: The Enterprise front desk personnel answered my yes or no payment question very round about and I had to ask several times to get a straight answer. But they were friendly and helpful overall.
10.0 ExcellentNov 29 2020
Pros: Amadeo was super helpful, considerate, and patient with my trying out different cars! Excellent customer service!Cons: Nothing really except if it could have been free of charge!
4.0 OkayNov 23 2020
Pros: Not easy, wait 30 min to get the car. Car had a burned seat... So, I'll don't use this again
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and it was easy to drop the car off at the airport

8.0 ExcellentMay 10 2021
Pros: New car was clean and drove well.Cons: Pick up and drop off was very confusing at this location. Not enough signage or instruction from staff (a print out map or instructions of where to locate cars on upper levels would have been helpful).
4.0 OkayMay 7 2021
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: Rental was a Chevy Spark (the size of a peanut), I did not feel safe driving on I-95 in Boston’s busiest traffic hours
10.0 ExcellentMay 5 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful
10.0 ExcellentMay 4 2021
Pros: Really easy to pick up and drop off. Staff helpful, especially in giving directions for driving out of the area (much more straightforward than what I had found online)
10.0 ExcellentApr 23 2021
Pros: The staff was very helpful and friendly. The pickup was on par with all rental centers. The drop off was especially easy. It was a nice little car that got excellent mileage which was great seeing we put quite a few miles on it. I definitely appreciated that I could get the insurance through Kayak. It was so much cheaper than what was offered at the Rental Car Center.Cons: Prices seemed very high. It's almost like everyone is trying to make up for last year.
2.0 MediocreApr 14 2021
Cons: The rental was not at the airport. The store they rented it from was 20 minutes away and would close before I could get there. I had to cancel the reservation and take the $50 no refundable hit and then reschedule last minute at higher rates than I would have gotten initially. (The rates were $100 more) so overall I lost $150 dollars trying to save money with Kayak
2.0 MediocreApr 9 2021
Cons: They didn't have the car I paid for.
8.0 ExcellentMar 28 2021
Cons: When picking up the vehicle, someone actually at the counter. There were signs directing to a downstairs kiosk, but then when I got there, thr agent said I should havr been upstairs because I wasnt a premium member. He was kind and assisted me anyway, but it could have been less confusing.
6.0 GoodMar 18 2021
Pros: We were able to get a car. It was a newer year. The trunk size was good.Cons: The price. We were told that we would get a Toyota Corolla, but we received a Hyundai that didn't have much power, was a little dirty, and really didn't have much of a back seat. The car came with some dents and scratches. Overall, we feel a bit disappointed with Thrifty.
2.0 MediocreMar 18 2021
Cons: Minimal cars, they say its due to them going bankrupt. Then I was told if I did not use the rental for all the days I booked it for I would only be charged for the days I used it. They charged for the 20 days booked and I only used it for 8 days. I should have stuck with enterprise.

8.0 ExcellentApr 18 2021
Cons: Cleaning hit the high touch areas, but there was grime in the cup holders and pocket areas.
2.0 MediocreApr 12 2021
Cons: The car smelled bad when we received it, it was quite damages. After a moth of hacving returned it without any issues, Avis is claiming that I was responsible for the damage which I was absolutely not. I have insurance and their signed form which already proves the damage was the previous to my rental dat, but still I need to be involved in defending this claims and tenths of long and time wasting calls with them and their claims company. I will NEVER rent from Avis again

2.8 MediocreSep 30 2020
Cons: Car reeked of smoke. Was the wrong pick up and drop off location. The Avis rep at Logan airport even admitted that they were over sold and could fill out all orders for vehicles. We were stuck with a car that smelt strongly of smoke the whole trip and we wasted extra time going to another location and having to document the smoke smell before leaving as the rental location had no ide

I had indicated on my Kayak search that I wanted BOS airport but I suppose I didn't look at the details to see that it was the location on Atlantic Ave. Not a huge deal but did have to get an Uber (or could have ridden the blue line) to get to the downtown location. Upon picking up the car on the 7th floor of the parking garage there was 1 woman working who we had to yell out for because nobody seemed to be around. She came from behind another vehicle and was on a personal phone call and had to tell the person on the phone that she'd "call you back because I have a customer". Not a huge deal I suppose but not the greatest of customer service that the person on the counter downstairs should have called up to the 7th floor to indicate we were coming. The car on the other hand smelled like marijuana inside. Not completely reeking of it but definitely could tell someone had smoked in it somewhat recently. I indicated this to the woman upstairs who said that she would note it and credit my account however nothing has come through indicating any credit. We were in a hurry because of the location mix up so didn't have time to potentially swap cars and the woman did not offer that up any way.
2.0 MediocreSep 1 2020
Cons: My reservation was for a pickup time that the office was not even open. I did not get a car.

Pros: Staff accommodated my mix up of having picked the wrong start date for my rental.Cons: Car smelled of smoke.
10.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Cons: There was a little confusion when returning the car as others where confused as well. Just some more direction when first renting on what to expect when returning the car fasttrack...just park and go is apparently the way to drop off.
8.0 ExcellentApr 3 2021
Pros: car was new, clean. Tank was full, not just nearly full. Attendant in the lot helped me find the car. Efficicent checkout on leaving the lot. Reasonable cost for dropoff in another city.Cons: The "sticker" that the guard used to ID the car on leaving the lot was low on the windshield on the drivers side, thus partially blocking my view of cars coming from the left. I almost collided once, so this is a very serious issue. Sticker is presumably on the driver's side for the convenience of the guard, but it should be high on the windshield..

7.2 GoodSep 21 2020
Cons: During kayak booking process, I booked a car from Logan airport (this was confirmed on my kayak app after check out). Then, when confirmation email came through, my car was actually reserved in Lynn MA (a 30 minute drive away). The entirely wrong location was booked.

8.0 ExcellentMay 5 2021
Pros: Pick-up was a slow process. There were 3 ahead of me in line, and it took about 30 minutes to get to the counter. Also, the agent had the wrong return date for me. Fortunately I caught it before leaving.Cons: Speed up the counter time. More agents? Faster computer system? Other agencies are faster.

8.0 ExcellentJan 5 2021
Pros: easy pick up/drop off. nice people. very clean car.Cons: very clear summary/signage detailing covid-related precautions taken by thrifty should be provided to customers immediately upon entry. how did they sanitize my car? heck, did they sanitize my car? i shouldn't have to ask. also, a bit expensive, though more a function of region than anything, i suppose. overall, a positive experience.
2.0 MediocreNov 23 2020
Cons: My trip was cancelled due to Covid and I was unable to either change dates or cancel so I lost my money. I will avoid using this site for future bookings. Dianne Ryan
8.0 ExcellentOct 26 2020
Cons: The toll package is crazy, we paid $1 to get out of Massachusetts, coming back in we hit that toll with no cash, but it’s only 1.50 it’s a really bad place to have a toll and it should just be included! Especially since there is a toll receiver on the car.
2.0 MediocreSep 27 2020
Cons: The airline canceled our flights, we couldn't use the car but were charged anyway.

Pros: Staff member in Boston “garage” was extremely helpful. Helped me selecting car and directions.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2021
Pros: Did not get a vehicleCons: Wnat a refund
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2021
Pros: I checked in at the Dollar Counter went downstairs to pickup the car as directed. They brought a car out smaller than ordered. I stated the car was not full size and they said our reserved car had mechanical issues. I agreed to try the car and filled out the paperwork, however, when I tried to get in I was too cramped in the front seat and the adjustments for the front seat were not working properly. (I am 6'3" and clearly needed the full size car ordered.) I talked to a manager who agreed to try to get another full size car if we waited another 30 minutes for it to be washed which we did. However, she later called the attendant and told him that car was not available because of foul smell of weed and smoke. They told us they could not provide us with a another car at that point and to get one somewhere else. When asked for a refund they refused stating that we had used a second party service Kayak and would have to get our refund from them.Cons: Most importantly they could have provided me with a clean full size car which I reserved. Secondly, the manager and attendant could have acted in a professional manner instead of very rude. Additionally, someone needs to step up and refund our money.
8.0 ExcellentApr 20 2021
Pros: We got the car we requested (Nissan Rogue), and it performed well throughout our 11-day rental. I was glad to have unlimited mileage as we drove a LOT. The car had Florida tags in New England, which COULD have made us vulnerable to predatory law enforcement or burglars, but we had no problems. The car came with Apple Play, which allowed us to use our phone GPS navigation. YAY! The check IN procedure was quick and painless.Cons: The car was advertised as having A/C, but it didn't work. Totally inoperative. We tried calling Dollar's Customer Service number as listed in the contract - 20 times, DURING business hours, but always got a recording saying "Our offices are closed. Please call back during business hours, which are 7AM-9PM (or whatever they were)... " etc. Very frustrating. Finally, the SIGNAGE for picking up the car at Boston Logan airport was practically non-existent. We followed signs to what we thought was the pickup office, only to be told we had to turn around and walk back another 150 meters to a different counter, where of course we had to wait even longer. Better signs for people NEW to this airport would have been helpful.
8.0 ExcellentApr 17 2021
Cons: The car was great, but even though it was “cleaned and sanitized,” it reeked of marijuana smoke! We could not get the smell out of the car, and it was very unpleasant.
6.0 GoodApr 7 2021
Cons: I didn’t receive still the reserved sum that was hold from my bank account. And I even don’t know who I should contact with
10.0 ExcellentApr 6 2021
Pros: SUV was what I ordered and they delivered. Very happyCons: Was hoping for the Land Rover, but got a “like” suv with Infinity. Deal was within guidelines. Really no complaints. Very happy.
4.0 OkayApr 5 2021
Pros: The car was good.Cons: The car had a strong smell of tabaco or smoke. I call to complained and they asked me to fill a form online which it took me a while to find on my phone. Then they said they contact me about the issue and never did. Also I asked about getting the ez-pass at the beginning of the rental and it was never given to me or explained how it works. Horrible service and nasty car smell.
6.0 GoodApr 4 2021
Pros: The process of renting the car itself was good. Return was easy too.Cons: The car we got had some mechanical issues that definitely need to be addressed - clunking when going over bumps in the road, vibration in the wheels and steering wheel when driving in the interstate. The seats in our Subaru were terribly uncomfortable but that is a subaru problem.
10.0 ExcellentApr 2 2021

Pros: Staff was friendly and drop off was greatCons: Only 3 agents working pickup for 3 companies. Took a long time to get car
2.0 MediocreMay 1 2021
Cons: The pick up in Boston was horrendous. Waited 30mins for the shuttle which by then was packed even by pre-COVID standards. ZERO safety protocols in place. Then it took another TWO hours in line to get a filthy car with multiple warning lights activated. No thanks.
4.0 OkayApr 21 2021
Pros: Check out was quickCons: The car smelled like cigarettes. The agent gave me the car that had been given to another customer prior. It took a long time at the airport to pick up the car due to the unorganized system.
2.0 MediocreMar 31 2021

5.2 OkayNov 8 2020
Pros: the car was unclean at all
9.6 ExcellentSep 22 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: Pickup and drop-off at Logan Car Rental is really difficult in terms of knowing where to go in. It's very confusing. Once I actually found the appropriate areas, the process with Payless was great.
7.2 GoodSep 10 2020
Pros: Upgraded from compact car to a Mitsubishi Outlander, which was the only positive of our experience.Cons: 20+ minute wait in line at Boston Logan, on top of 40+ minutes just for the associate to help us?!!! Their name tag said they’d been there for 15 years, but they were slow as molasses and had no care for us and did not make me feel valued. There were no Payless reps at their airport (what?!!!), so a random other person had to try and come help. When we FINALLY got our car over an hour later, we drove it 2 miles only to have an emergency notification come on saying “Pull over safely. Car will stop soon” WTF?! So we drove back, got back in line and waited 40+ minutes to be helped by another terrible associate who didn’t care about us. Once we finally got our second car, it was 2+ hours later and no one even apologized for the inconvenience. I already called customer service, and they said “oh okay we will get back to you in a minimum of 5 days”
2.4 MediocreAug 17 2020
Pros: Nothing great. Car worked fine that’s about it.Cons: Car smelled like cigarettes and pick up process was terrible
2.8 MediocreAug 10 2020
Pros: The price was the only positive thing about this rental experience.Cons: The car reeked of cigarettes and the seats had been spilled on with some sort of dark liquid. It took forever to get a customer service rep on the phone, I filed a complaint, and all I received in response was an e-mail saying they were sorry they had disappointed me.

2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2020
Pros: Unfortunately, there was no chance for me to like anything as E-Z did not have my reservation on file. I spent over an hour at the counter looking to see if the order was wrongfully placed for a different day, if it was set for a different pickup location, or if the rental company had been changed (I individually checked with Alamo, Advantage, Hertz, Enterprise, and more) to unfortunately find out there no company had my reservation on file. By the time the entire ordeal was done, and the option was to reserve a new car, we were so late that we decided to completely change plans and not rent a car for the day. This put extreme stress on myself with family visiting town and I am incredibly frustrated with this experience. Please contact me at mpbrooks16@gmail.com or (708) 212-6034 to advise next steps - I kindly ask to be refunded for both the car rental and the insurance policy as neither were used.
6.8 GoodFeb 3 2020
Pros: easy in and outCons: more people at the checkout, waited almost half an hour for my turn
6.4 GoodJan 3 2020
Cons: The signage for the desk was difficult to find, the car exterior was dirty including windows and mirrors. The gas wasn t full and was low about 100 miles, I filled it a day later and drove that far before gauge returned to the point where I picked it up
4.8 OkayDec 13 2019
Pros: Staff at counter was good, requested a vehicle with "in" state tags. Was told the vehicle had "Massachusetts tags".... it did not, then the gentleman in garage fought with me when I got to the vehicle with "Virginia tags!!!"..... He was very rude and he had 6 vehicles of same model with "Massachusetts tags" but wouldn't let me switch!!!! Ridiculous.....Cons: Using another rental company bc upon returning the vehicle I couldnt find anyone to check me out???? So I proceeded to the rental counter and NO ONE there either at 730am in the morning, it's been a few days and yet to recieve my receipt..... Last time I will use a second rate rental company, I travel for a living and if your a businessman dont use EZ car rentals!!!!
4.8 OkayOct 26 2019
Pros: the staff at our pick-up were stressed because of the long line (we waited over an hour to pick up our car). Our attendant was chippy and not very helpful. The car was excellent.Cons: the terribly long wait to pick up our car. Had to change our plans.
4.0 OkaySep 12 2019
Cons: Check-in staff was exceptionally rude. Apparently customer service no longer matters.
5.2 OkaySep 1 2019
Pros: There was one staffers who was helpful and apologetic regarding poor signage at the airport. I also appreciated the man who checked the car out and was careful and helpfulCons: The counter staff were rude and simply did not care. They blamed me for missing the counter sign and could not have been more dismissive and unhelpful. With that attitude, I will avoid EZ rental in the future.
9.6 ExcellentAug 21 2019
Pros: The counter girl was super friendly and happy, and the return was easy. The car got great mileage!Cons: nothing!
8.8 ExcellentAug 20 2019
Cons: There is always a long line & a long wait to register. The staff is friendly & helpful. I asked about specials; I was told I could upgrade for $45 but was not told that was based on $15 per day. My total was greater than $45. I want a refund for the overage. Returning the car was super simple.
2.4 MediocreJul 28 2019
Cons: Early Saturday morning 6:00am to 7:00am there was nobody to assist me so I went to a Competitor I would appreciate a full refund Thanks Bill

Pros: Easy pick up and drop off for the most part at the airport except the National employees weren’t at the counter when flights got in making a great many people standing in line for both National and Alamo so the Alamo people could help us.Cons: Car smelled like something had been either in the car and got moldy or a wet animal had been inside causing the first day to be almost Unbearable to drive in.

Cons: No one at counter at BOS upon arrival at 10:30pm. No sign saying to go up to where cars are. Finally found my way there. After saying they didn’t have the 8 seat suburban available that I had reserved, they eventually found one. Everything was great after that.

6.4 GoodAug 24 2020
Pros: They had issues with their credit card reader/computer and I had to wait for them to call my credit card company to verify it. This was at 1100pm after a long day of travel.... so it was a little annoying.Cons: The car was pretty beat up on the exterior and interior. Good news was they didn’t charge me for the condition of the car. I would have spent most of the rest of night circling things on the form otherwise.
8.4 ExcellentDec 18 2019
Pros: Easy to pick up and drop off and the shuttle was also expedient to and from the airport. Car was new with 300 miles.Cons: The cost was higher than quoted after all the incidental tax was added. Probably a state issue but should have been an up front cost quote.

National has only 2 other available cars in the area and was trying to make me pay regular price for the other cars despite not having or being able to honor my reservation. Was told the local regional manager would call me and I am still waiting for their call. Will not be renting w national again and cannot trust that reservations made on this website will be honored moving forwardCons: Honor reservation. Have rental car available if there is a booked reservation. Do not falsely sell these reservations if the company cannot honor them. Very disappointed all together

Top tips for renting a car in Boston

  • Rent a car during your stay in Boston and gain ultimate flexibility to explore not only the vibrant city but also the surrounding areas while you’re there, such as Connecticut or New Hampshire. Opting for a rental car will make trips to destinations further out of the city center far easier, for instance the Foxboro Football Stadium, which is 28 miles from Boston and by car can be conveniently reached in half an hour.
  • Boston International Airport has a Car Rental Center which features a 4-level garage for the abundance of cars on offer and can be reached by the airport’s free shuttle service. The shuttle bus leaves from all terminals every 5-6 minutes. The buses can be found at the lower level of every terminal and are blue and white. In the Rental Center, there are various different rental services including Zipcar, Entertainment, Avis or E-Z Rent-A-Car, so it should be no hassle to find the perfect ride to further destinations.
  • Boston has a lot of traffic and navigating yourself through the many intersections can be confusing at times, however navigation systems can be easily added to a rental car and this will help you reach further destinations without any problems. Boston’s pedestrians are known to jaywalk and cyclists regularly don’t adhere to the traffic light regulations, so paying extra attention and double-checking for pedestrians and cyclists while driving is very important.
  • Boston is one of the cities with the worst rush hour in the US, so try to avoid it by going to your destination before or after (rush hour is most intense approximately between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays). Especially the intersections along Interstate 93 and the Route 128 are known to be clogged with traffic and should be avoided during rush hour times altogether if possible, as alternative side roads are also congested during these times. Also bear in mind that winters can bring snow and ice to Boston, and you should drive extra carefully.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Boston for $52 or less
  • Book your rental car in Boston at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Boston are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average
