10.0 ExcellentOct 23 2020
Pros: We did a one way rental and everything went as planned. Staff at both enterprise locations were efficient and very professional.Cons: We arrived early into Whitefish and had hoped to pick up our vehicle early but there was insufficient inventory. Not the company’s fault but some flexibility would have been ideal.

10.0 ExcellentOct 24 2020

10.0 ExcellentAug 7 2020
Pros: They were greatCons: Everything was fine
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2020
Cons: You need to change your system. I booked a one way rental only to find out when i got there, they only do local returns. You almost put me in a very awkward position of being stranded in Kalispell. I do not intent to use Kayak for any car rentals in the future.
10.0 ExcellentSep 22 2019

2.0 MediocreOct 17 2020
Cons: This was at Glacier National Airport in Kalispell, MT. Made the reservation with Avis because the value was reasonable and they were open at 8 AM when I needed to pick up the car and make it to an appointment. Arrived at 8 AM and two people at the counter, neither of which could rent me the car because they did not work the front desk. They said the person was running late and would be in shortly. Thirty minutes later, the front desk person was still not there. Could not wait any longer so I went to Budget and they had just what I needed and for the same price. Avis lost the rental and a customer.
8.0 ExcellentSep 16 2020
Cons: The tires on my rental required filling every other day. As soon as I left the lot, the tire light came on....luckily nothing happened and they didn’t deflate completely but I still feel like this should have been looked at prior to me driving
10.0 ExcellentSep 8 2020
Pros: The Staff was friendly but didn't talk my ear off, the Vehicle was newer & in great shape. It also got decent gas mileage for a big ford expedition, about 20 MPG. Pick Up & Drop Off was a breeze & took less than 5 minutes for both.Cons: I thought the $1,300.00 Price Tag was Pretty Steep for 6 Days, especially since the last day I dropped the vehicle off between 7:30 & 8:00 AM.
2.8 MediocreAug 1 2020
Pros: Nothing. Staff was incredibly rude. First vehicle (PREMIUM SUV) was scratched horribly and filthy. Went back in and thrown second set of keys to a comparably filthy suburban. Staff didn’t walk vehicle and it was never cleaned.
8.0 ExcellentSep 24 2019
Cons: I usually choose to fill the tank before returning the vehicle, but their scare tactic did not sit well with me. They said, if you do not return the car with the gas tank completely full we will charge you what it would cost to refill the entire tank (not just any missing).
8.8 ExcellentSep 20 2019
Pros: Pickup in Glacier was easy. Had a free upgrade because we were dropping off in another state.Cons: Drop off in Rapid City created a small issue. The attendant asked if I had purchased gas ( drove 2700 miles) . She then charged me for gas! Fortunately I caught it before I left. She said she must have pushed the wrong key! Not likely.
9.6 ExcellentSep 14 2019
Pros: Pick up and drop off very efficient.
7.6 GoodSep 11 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: Only one staff member on arrival to help customers, took awhile.
8.0 ExcellentAug 25 2019
Cons: Not all dents were marked so we took pics and had an employee mark them on paper in parking lot.
4.0 OkayAug 16 2019
Pros: Clean carCons: Poor customer service in person and on the phone. Overpriced.

10.0 ExcellentAug 14 2019
Pros: Friendly staff and super easy pickup / drop off.Cons: I had no other expectations to be met that were not. Very pleased.
9.6 ExcellentJan 21 2019
Pros: The staff was incredibly helpful and to-the-point. He did not try to sell me any add-ons or unneeded extras, and got us in and out very quickly. The car was top-notch (I don’t think a Chrysler 300 fits in the “compact” category that we paid for, but we certainly didn’t complain) and drove very well.Cons: We found a bit of trash in the backseat and the trunk. Nothing shocking, but we did end up cleaning out more trash than we added to the car.
10.0 ExcellentJun 28 2018
Pros: quick, easy and very good service from the counter help from Hertz/Thrifty employees. I am very pleased. Nancy

Best car rental companyPros: Quick and easy to understand instructions for rentals. Very informative. Beth showed us the car we would be using, so that we wouldn’t get confused and she also offered the best choice for us, since there are some age restrictions. She also gave us unlimited mileage which was a huge bonus for us! We will be booking with Budget again soon! Thanks Beth!
10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2017
Pros: The car was new and clean. Budget charged exactly the fee that was quoted. Quick service at the airport.

I ordered a large suv and got a mid size insteadPros: Thecar was ok but not what I ordered. They offered me $20 off per day which frankly was an insult. They initially offered me a hundai sonata which would totally not work for 4 large adults. I booked the car 3 months ago so I gave them way more lead time than necessary,Cons: As above
