Nothing it’s my first and last time renting, I went to pick up the car, did not know that I needed my credit card. Went to get the card came back from a ten minutes drive to find out that they have no cars available. And before I left cars were available

People at the location I rented were excellent. Mitch helped me from start to finish. A very good experience at this location. Car was good for the money. I had unpleasant experience the previous time I rented from Enterprise at different location. The right people are making big difference. I will be renting again from the same location if a need a car. 5 stars this time. Thanks!

Everyone at the Enterprise Rental was nice and professional. Pick up and drop off were very easy. That said: The price quoted by Priceline (via) Kayak was not honored. Instead of $290 (taxes included) due at pick up, Enterprise charged $383 at pick ($50/day instead of ~$40/day) The car I received smelled of stale cigarette smoke, which I didn't realize until I got home because I normally drive with the windows down. We did try to switch cars halfway through the trip (We drove from Brooklyn to Chicago) but it was Thanksgiving weekend so no cars were available. So we drove with the windows open a crack throughout our trip.

Kayak and enterprise took my money and my reservation and there was no car when I drove 1/2 hour to get it. I’ll never use kayak or enterprise again. You wasted 160.00 of my money in cab fare. I never got a car.

Wrong type of car (wanted compact, gave me full-sized sedan) and definitely no "enhanced cleaning". Told me the tank was full but once I got a couple blocks away, I saw it was only 3/4. Since they were slow in the first place, I was running late, so I guess I bought Avis some gas at their exorbitant refueling rate.

I would have appreciated more transparency around charges and tolls. For example, an email with the charges. I kept getting billed for tolls weeks after, and did not understand where the charges were coming from.

Rude lady at pick up office.
2.0 MediocreOct 25 2021
The car pick up took one and half hours late than my reservation time. They gave out the cars on a first come first served. It is nonsense if 11:30am person pick up the car earlier than 11:30am me either because they came earlier or using whatever. This overbooking and slowness of the process is ridiculous. Handling this takes too long with unreasonable methods. It is very disappointing.
1.9 HorribleSep 8 2021
Our rental car stopped working, and instead of helping, Avis did everything possible to make the situation worse. They basically left us stranded waiting for endless hours until a tow truck came to us. I will never be renting from this place ever again. It was a total nightmare.

I didn’t even rent. I showed up and there was a line with travelers immediately warning me. They said they were waiting for at least 2 hours because the guy told them the computers were down, and they were keeping everyone in the dark with computer status and how long it would take to get a car. I booked immediately with Enterprise down the street, cancelled my Budget reservation, and left.

Pick up in NY ( representative was really mad that I bought insurance through kayak , I did not even knew that it was a 3rd party insurance but the way she act, I was trying to show what I have instead to take a look at it she told me that if anything will happen to a car they will charge me and it will be my problem to figure that out later with 3rd party insurance, that’s not the way you should talk to your customers ! ) Drop off in NC was good can’t complain!

Pick up and drop off wasnt particularly difficult but the staff wasnt friendly or informative which made it an unpleasant experience. I wont be back.

I reserved a full size hybrid car. On arrival they told me they only have a few hybrids and had none available. They gave me a very basic Toyota Corolla which did not seem comparable for the price I paid. When I was looking over the car to see if there was any damage before driving out of the lot, the attendant was rushing me to sign off. He said he would be there the day I return and said “don’t worry. I got you”. Thankfully I insisted on checking the car completely because he wasn’t there the day I returned.
6.0 GoodNov 21 2021
The interior of the car wasn’t very clean. I only discovered this when I started opening things. In Bedford the process of dropping the car off was confusing. There was no attendant, no directions for where to actually leave the car, just a vague sign that suggested writing all the info down and dropping everything into a box. Hopefully that worked out!
2.0 MediocreOct 20 2021
Was able to make a reservation Budget couldn't accept; they couldn't help me at the counter because I booked through a third party. Third party recommended cancelling as there was no cancellation fee and rebooking - I was still charged a fee.

No more hertz. This is the 4th time (different location in Brooklyn) that we got a confirmation email the day before, then we go to pick up the car and they have no cars!!! It’s happened at 906 union, 585 Dean and now 92 boerum…. Who has time for this?! So unprofessional.
2.0 MediocreMay 2 2022
They let me book a car reservation at the exact time the hertz location was closing. That shouldn't happen, that is something that should automatically not be allowed to do. I was set up to fail in picking up the car... Very frustrating experience
2.0 MediocreApr 29 2022
They charged my card $100 a day and claimed I never returned it, when I dropped it off early in the proper location. This is for the Nashville Airport drop-off location
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2022
An absolutely horrendous customer service experience. Staff all on their mobile devices could barely make the effort of assisting with the details, never mind acknowledging our presence when entering the office - and only one other customer at the time! Attempts to even lighten the mood and dispatch with pleasantries were simply met with commands for DL, credit cards, and rental details. Upon being presented with the car, it looked like someone had sprayed it with a hose rather than freshly washed and covered in bug and road splatter. The seats were stained and the car did not smell fresh. Does customer service in AMerica still exist?
4.0 OkayApr 20 2022
Even though iI requested drop of the same as pick up location the rental had me drop off the Brooklyn. Since I assumed the rental was as I requested I didn’t realize it until I dropped off . They charged me more than $300, a 25% markup. A bait and switch situation. I blame both Kayak and Hertz for this. Shame on you both!!!!!

The car was great and super clean. The gentleman who helped check us in was really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, when we checked in he was the only person working and thus there was quite a long wait for us to check in but as soon as he got to us he was really efficient.We called to extend the car by a few hours and when we went to return the shop was closed with no drop box or instructions of what do to. I was able to get in touch with someone who was very helpful and told me to return in the morning. When I returned the following morning there was a massive line of cars to the point that we were all pulled up in the street, blocking traffic. A helpful passerby helped to direct traffic to clear the obstruction from the road, as no one from either rental agency was addressing it. Eventually and gentleman came out and told me to simply leave the car and they would deal with it. I did so, but there was no formal hand off or drop-off process.

The staff was very nice and got me a car that was clean and comfortable. They explained what was included and what was additional with patience and clarity. They were also very friendly.The car's oil change indicator was triggered when I picked up the car. The car's tank was also only filled halfway upon pickup. I expected the tank to be full when I picked up the car, so that was very disappointing.

The staff in BK was incredible, the car was excellent (and larger than what I thought I paid for, which was really helpful)When I arrived there was an issue with the scanner; my name didn't pop up when I returned the car, and as a result I had to wait around while they figured it out, but no one ever explained the issue to me.
6.8 GoodJun 16 2020
The reservation said we didnt need the credit card present, but when we arrived they said we needed it. Ended up spending hours trying to find an alternate solution and we were extremely late arriving at our destination. This is not a complaint against the workers, just against the confusing policy.Let us reserve with debit cards or photos of the credit card, especially if you’re gonna say we dont need the card present
8.4 ExcellentJun 7 2020
Front desk was friendly.I found the previous renter's paperwork in the front with a random receipt. It makes me wonder how well they sanitized the front car if they left those items. Just in case, I wiped it down myself for my own comfort.

The williamsburg location closes at 5pm and does not offer after hours drop off. When I booked the car on kayak, it said I could drop off in the evening (9pm) which was not the case and I ended up having to drop it off at LaGuardia airport. Had I known I’d have to go to the airport, I would’ve booked a different location or company. I picked up the car at 8am on Friday, and Thrifty williamsburg didn’t open until 9am on Saturday. I asked if I could arrive at thrifty first thing at 9am for the return, and she said no it would be a whole additional day charge as that would be 25 hour rental. Going to LaGuardia to return the car was inconvenient and unnecessary

The Asian girl at the front desk was unrespectful, she never responds to the salute and in the hiring process, she tried to bully me about my English understanding and speaking. When they will deliver the car to you, they may record a video with the current status of the car, but she recorded a video with faster movements that don't show anything and I had to ask another attendant (a Brazilian girl) to take pictures of the car scratches. The car is a bit old and with balancing and alignment problems, which makes me feel that the rental was very expensive and I would prefer to rent a car at the airport, for the same price and I'm pretty sure that the car is newer than this. I don't recommend this site.

When I tried to adjust the timing of my rental, I was told the only way to do so was by cancelling and rebooking my car. When I did that, my rate doubled. Additionally, I didn’t know until I picked the car up that my booking was actually with Drivo instead of Ace. They then couldn’t find mind reservation - when they finally did, I was told it had been cancelled. Luckily they still had a car and created a new reservation for me, and gave me a discount for the trouble. But that was about the only good part of the experience. Then I was told they did not offer liability insurance, which seemed a bit shady to me but it was the day before Christmas Eve and I needed a car, so I begrudgingly said yes. Everything was squared away, I had the car and I drove away. I only made it a few miles away before I pulled over to let them know I was bringing the car back. The car would not stop rattling and squealing. They were definitely upset when I brought the car back and insisted on a full refund/termination of the reservation, but it was too many issues piled on top of each other.

They are located in a parking lot, I arrived before employees. The employees seem to use cars to commute to work. Watched employee arrive in the same car they rented me. Car was filthy, stains all over every seat, dried coffee in cup holder, left over receipts in cup holder. No one sanitized or bothered to clean anything, like hello covid! I stopped at Walgreens and bought Lysol wipes to clean inside of car. Luckily during pickup The parking lot attendant was sure to take photos as I pointed out all the damage, so much minor damage, scratches, cracked taillight, small dents. During return drop off there were 3 employees, one much more interested in his game on his phone, the other greeted me and the final seemed upset I was dropping off. He rushed past me , no greeting, no words, went to car I dropped off and said there’s damage to the car but the employee that greeted me stopped him before he could continue and said they found photos of all damage on their system. He looked disappointed. So if your renting from here, please bring Lysol wipes, inspect and take detailed photos of everything and don’t expect curtesy.

I like that they fixed the problem when i arrived to the closed location with no vehicle. I Drivo representative found me a car at JFK location but it was a big set back for my road trip. Overall i was thankful to still get a car last min for my family trip and i still got the same rate which was good.Being advise before hand it would have save me a lot of time and less run around if i new the coney island location was closed. But all in all it worked out.

NothingI had a sketchy feeling about booking this through Kayak (it was way cheaper than other providers in the same area) so I called ACE Rent a Car directly and they told me that this location is completely out of business... thank God I called before I showed up there. I don't think I would ever book a car rental through a service like Kayak again if they aren't aware of what locations are out of business ... I ended up booking directly with a different rental company so I didn't have to worry

Top tips for renting a car in Brooklyn

  • Looking to pick up a rental car for your time in Brooklyn? If you are landing at JFK International Airport, the rental car counters are on the Arrivals level in each terminal. At LaGuardia Airport, shuttles are available in front of Terminal A to take passengers to the rental car center. As for Newark Airport, travelers will find rental car counters at Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain.
  • Nothing screams New York like rush hour. And while Brooklyn may not experience as severe of traffic as Manhattan, it still retains a spot on the list of worst rush hours. In general, morning rush hour goes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., while the evening rush hour picks up around 4:00 p.m. and lasts till 7:00 p.m. Drivers should note that the roads neighboring the Brooklyn Bridge are, in particular, some of the worst areas affected by rush hour traffic.
  • Brooklyn is one of the most populated areas in New York and it is especially popular for younger demographics. As a consequence of this, biking is a very prominent mode of transportation in the borough. Drivers should make sure that they keep their eyes open for any bikers on the road, particularly when parking and opening their doors.
  • Love to visit obscure and off-the-beaten-path spots and locales? The best way to get to spots like that in Brooklyn is undoubtedly with a car. For instance, Red Hook, Canarsie Park, and Manhattan Beach are just some of the areas in Brooklyn that are easily reached by car but can be a laborious process to get to otherwise.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Brooklyn for $59 or less
  • Book your rental car in Brooklyn at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Brooklyn are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average
