The rental location was terrific. I wish that it was made clearer to me that I was not renting from a location that was shuttled to/from the airport and that I would have to hire someone to drive me there. I understand that this was my error, but it has taught me that I can’t rely on Kayak to provide that information.

When I went to pick up the car there wasn’t a car available. Had to rent from National instead
5.9 OkayAug 19 2021
Staff was great, cheerful. No problem with our rep. When I reserved it I had searched Albany Airport but was unknowingly given the location in downtown Albany-5 miles away. No shuttle, had to find our own ride to location. They wouldn’t let us return to the Hertz airport location either, so we had to get another ride. Very inconvenient. Car was not ready for pickup, they had to clean it and take it to gas station to fill up, then brought it back to Hertz. It was inundated with Febreez odor, so much it was hard to breathe. As it wore off it reeked of cigarettes. We had to keep febreezing it during the week. Other than the odor, the car ran fine and was bigger than what I had reserved, which was appreciated.

Bad hours, difficult to reach and get information.

We booked the rental vehicle to be picked up at 5 but we got there to find out they closed at 5 so had to book a hotel and pick up the next day. It was a super pain! I feel like there was some communication lapse between the location and kayak/Priceline.
1.9 HorribleJul 26 2021
Our flight landed in Albany at 4:05. We walk over to the Hertz counter after waiting in line for 30 minutes and the lady says your rental is not here it’s at an offsite location. I pay for an Uber and by the time we get to the other Hertz it’s closed. The attendant is still there but would not open the door. There’s a sheet of paper covering their hours with new hours and they closed now at 5pm. He said come back at 8am tomorrow. My daughter had a hockey game 2 hours away the next morning so I needed the car. I called Hertz. They said if I go back to the airport I can get a rental there but it will be another $863. I Uber back to the airport and they are overbooked by 60 cars. I ended paying $200 for an Uber to take us to our hotel in Massachusetts, never picked up the car, the supervisor at Hertz wouldn’t speak to me, and I’m out all of the money I spent on the rental plus all of the Uber fees I paid all weekend. I also had to change my flight because I had no means of getting back to Albany which cost me $400 more to fly out of Boston. I will never rent through Kayak or Hertz ever again.

Their call support is terrible and they threaten to make you pay if you use it takes forever to resolve an issue- and they make mistakes with. Bookings -

Never got the car i paid for because i didn’t bring the same credit card back now i don’t know how to get my money back from kayak

It was a horrible experience. I booked a car for airport pickup. We get there and they tell us it’s at another location that was currently closed. We had to pay for another car

Professionalism of office staff was definitely lacking. Mediocre on-site customer service/responsiveness.

Excellent car and great service.
3.9 MediocreAug 10 2021
Budget was at Colonie Center and not at the airport. There was no shuttle and needed to get my own transportation to the rental pickup. There is a budget at the airport, however the location that showed up in the search was not at the airport so double check. It was quite a bit cheaper so could still be worth it, but you should definitely check all options.
3.9 MediocreAug 8 2021
It was not clear AT ALL that the car was not located at the airport but instead had to be picked up 15 minutes away. A MAJOR hassle.

2.8 MediocreJul 10 2020
The staff was helpful but pretty impossible to find at the Albany location.The car was not what I signed up for - I had requested a smaller car and it was a huge jeep. The previous driver smoked cigarettes and the car reaked. I didn't get the sense that it was ever cleaned and it made me feel really uneasy.

Staff at both ends did an excellent job!It went totally smooth, I can't offer any improvements because it was seamless.
5.2 OkayAug 26 2019
The staff was excellent!We thought that we booked our vehicle right out of the airport, but apparently the website took us to an offsite rental. We then had to book a much smaller vehicle for $150.00 more! Very unsatisfied with how that all turned out.
8.8 ExcellentJul 17 2019
There was a ceramic mug under the seat and dirt/dust in the back cup holders. Aside from that the car was great :)

7.2 GoodMar 14 2017
The car worked well. The staff were nice and made pick up and drop off easy.There were a lot of charges beyond the advertised daily price that were either disproportionately high or didn't make sense. Dropping a car off at a different location results in a $130+ fee (this is if you tell enterprise before hand. It is probably higher if you don't). It was cheaper for me to rent from Thursday to Monday than from Saturday to Monday.'

Rating Not Applicable (since Enterprise cancelledI was pleased to be able to confirm a reservation for a car via Kayak on Christmas weekend (on very short notice). Unfortunately, Enterprise called me around noon (after the reservation was confirmed around 9am) to tell me that they had to cancel my reservation (due to no car availability). It was disappointing to be granted a reservation only for it to be taken away. But Christmas weekend is kinda crazy, so I'll give Enterprise a pass. Fortunately my old 2000 Saturn (with 150,000 miles) got me from Albany NY to Fairfield CT and back .
9.2 ExcellentOct 26 2016
Rental Team was GreatThe Enterprise staff was extremely helpful, friendly and jovial. They gave me an upgrade to an SUV.The place was super busy when I arrived to pick-up the car so there was a slightly longer wait than usual. A prior renter of the car I had must have smoked in it. When the fan was on there was a faint smell of Cigarette or more likely cigar. There were two empty bottles under the seats (OJ and Gatorade)

1.9 HorribleAug 22 2021
Booked Albany, assured airport because that is what was requested. Found out at airport that rental was 2 blocks away and by the way they were closed after 4:00. Flight landed at 8:00. When I called to say flight was delayed agent said sorry they would be closed and there was no option. ALTHOUGH airport Avis was open until after 11:00. AND of course the cost went UP to pick up the car from where I thought it was rented.
1.9 HorribleJul 17 2021
Avis is a mess. Our plane was late, the place closed, and they gave the car away despite 3 calls with the call center shortly after the pick up time. Another location had tons of cars but wouldn't move the reservation over or give me a new reservation. The overseas call center is a joke. They dropped my call 3 times and tried to give me a reservation in a city that didn't exist. The call center supposedly has no power to do anything and can't communicate well. I will never use Avis again.
4.0 OkayJul 1 2021
Clean car, quick linesThe employee explained the fuel option as one that I would be paying “per gallon” if it was not returned with a full tank. When I specifically asked about the option and that’s how it was explained to me, it was almost a bold faced lie.
6.0 GoodJun 10 2021
Vehicle was why I expected and performed wellPick up booth was extremely understaffed. Wait to get the car was over a half an hour with a line of twenty people. One agent was stuck with a client using a translation app or there phone working with one client the whole time backup help was never called. Vehicle had not been cleaned when I got it. Dirty inside and out.

PriceNo ability to contact local agent, no store front or signage indicating pickup location, only a guy in a car with a sign. My rental was given away to someone else because I was late getting my car because I couldnt find the location, despite calling the national number they assured me everything was OK
