Car rentals everywhere are pricey. Service at Charlottetown Enterprise was excellent. Will repeat in future.

I was scheduled to drop off the car early Sunday morning, and the worker told me I would have to drop the keys off in the box because they wouldn't be opened. I asked what about the walk around to make sure I didn't damage the car he said they wouldn't be able to do it since they aren't open at all that day. I wanted to know what happens if the car was damaged after I dropped it off and he said I would be liable even if I took videos/pictures and I could add an extra day (at my own cost) if I wanted to. He even went on to say it's never happened yet but he couldn't guarantee it wouldn't (meaning damage to the vehicle in the parking lot). I don't appreciate this since it was in a parking lot that is accessible to other companies. I only paid for the car until Sunday at 9 am I should not be responsible for the car after that time especially when I don't have access to the vehicle after that point. The car itself was fine. Good mileage, comfortable and easy to drive. Though I kept hitting my head on the ceiling because I wasn't used to it.

Very nice people. Got me everything I wanted plus more!The online system knowing if they have cars in at the time of booking a car on line. I thought I was getting a car for 1 and I was on my way there to get it and got a call saying they didn’t have any cars available at the time.

Perfect Car for PEIWe rented the smallest car size. It was an almost new Nissan Versa Note and while it doesn't have a ton of power the highest speed limit on any road we were on was 90KPH. While the trunk area was quite small, the back seats were easy to drop down so that made up for it. The car worked out great

Thé service regarding pickup was bad. They said they would close at 6 on my agreement. When they called me they said they were closing at 4 pm. A huge difference for s traveler. I was bounced from kayak to beers to change the pickup time. Hertz didn’t think it was their problem. So I went back and forth. Finding the number to corset hertz was difficult and took a half hour. When I got through they said I should context the pick up location. That’s when I was told that they would be closing at 4. which high was false. I had to pick up my car two hours earlier than I planned because of that misinformation. I felt it was handled very badly and was a stressful experience. It had an impact on the time I decided to head to the airport which hindered my plans with my friends. All in all I wouldn’t do it again

Really surprised that the Hertz counter wasn't open on a Saturday. Your sign said to drop keys off in the parking lot - after we had already dragged our luggage from the parking lot to the counter. I didn't see a sign in the parking lot about dropping keys off there and we were not told when we picked up the keys that this is what we should have done. Disappointed that the SUV was only a 4-cylinder too......... otherwise, everything was fine.

Unclear specifications for rentalThe car we eventually received was clean and in excellent conditionBe warned. When they say taxes and fees included. They by NO means mean all taxes and fees. Read the fine print ladies and gents. When I arrived to pick up the car we were informed of MANY extra charges. If you want an extra driver it is an extra 25-35$ per PER DAY. If you want full insurance coverage it is an extra 20-35$ a day PER DRIVER. If you are under 25 it is and extra 25-35$ a day PER DRIVER. When we arrived .to pick up the rental csr, I was informed that I would be unable to actually rent the car unless I rebooked it under a credit card with the main drivers name. I intended to be the sole driver, and do not have a credit card under my name. We had to completely rearrange our trip so that the person with the credit card was the main driver of the csr. Once that was all re arranged, we were invoiced almost 400$ for a car rental that we had booked for around 85$ online . Pretty ridiculous. I'm sure there are lots of details I have left out, feel frree to ask

The worker in Charlottetown woke up at three in the morning to male sure I got my car which I desperately needed to transport my baby in. Also was able to easily extend the time with the car.
9.2 ExcellentNov 24 2017
Rental was effortlessSUPER easy pick up and drop!! I don't know if it will be this easy for everyone, but you did not need to leave any extra time before your flight for the drop off.
9.2 ExcellentOct 10 2017
Friendliness of the Hertz agent. The car was great!When we dropped off the car it was not clear if we needed to wait for an agent. When one didn't appear, we parked and left the keys in the car and reported to the agent in the airport. Turned out we should have brought back the keys but the agent didn't require us to go back and pick up the keys. It would have been good if the agent at the time of pick-up had advised us of how to drop-off the car.

I paid Kayak early to get the best rate then when I picked up the car… the rental company (Thrifty) made me pay an extra $13.50 per day to allow my wife to drive too. This was not made clear in Kayaks advertised rate thus very much disappointing. Total extra for my wife to drive was 200 dollars… original charge was 400 dollars thus 50% increase ??? Rather than me saying disappointed… would the right term be rip off???
10.0 ExcellentOct 1 2019
Staff was friendly. Came in late at night after I missed a connection flying in. Gave me my choice of available cars and all were nice and almost new.I couldn't figure out how to drop the car off and almost missed my flight home (just park the car and take the key and paperwork inside to the hertz/thrifty counter) Not a big deal.
5.2 OkayMay 13 2019
Was quoted 17 per day. Had email with reservation number and price. Thrifty would not honor price. Paid 3 times the amount.

The young man who worked for Avis but was covering for Budget at the Charlottetown airport was exceptional. Friendly, kind and understanding. He helped me when we took our car in to trade and was so nice to my entire group. Quick drop off when we returned the vehicle.Our Jeep Cherokee had mechanical problems so we lost a day because we had to turn back from a day trip to exchange the vehicle.
