They are not easy to contact by phone. When I wanted to verify that my vehicle would be there when I planned to pick it up; I got a Royal run around with Enterprise people trying to get to the local place of business. Phone kept being answered by their call centers with poor English speaking people. 😕 It took 5 phone calls to finally get connected to the local business site. My past experience has been that they do not always have the vehicle you sign up for on the day you arrive for it. This time it was very important that I have a large passenger van.

Pros:

Staff was very friendly. Check out took a bit longer than I would have liked. Drop off was easy as it was after hours and it is an easy airport to get in/out of.

Cons:

I requested a small SUV for my rental because of winter driving. When I got there the worker told me I had been upgraded to a truck. When I got to my rental it was a 3/4 ton truck. This was not something I am familiar with driving and the gas mileage was horrible compared to what a small SUV would have gotten. I just wish they would have asked me if I wanted the upgrade instead of just shifting my rental.
