6.0 GoodAug 12 2019
Pros: The drop off at Little Rock was very quick and convenient.Cons: Our registration was for a Ford Focus....instead we ended up w/a much smaller Ford Fiesta. Instead of asking us numerous questions upon arrival, they could have read over our confirmation....it was almost all asked while we registered.
6.0 GoodJul 27 2019
Pros: One staff member was nice the other could have a better attitude.Cons: A little compassion goes a long way.
10.0 ExcellentJun 1 2019
Pros: Everything. Easy pick up and drop off!!
8.4 ExcellentApr 22 2019
Cons: Disclosure of the astronomical additional fees
4.8 OkayMar 25 2019
Cons: I reserved and paid for a full size car. Hertz oversold their inventory. I was given a Focus, at the same rate! No refund for downgrade. They gave me 1/2 tank of gas as a consolation.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 27 2019
Cons: Wish the car had a CD player so we could listen to a book on CD.
4.0 OkayJan 11 2019
Hidden charges and dirty vanPros: Online experience was great!Cons: Everything else....drop off was okay though. Charges that were hidden and in person experience is way worse than enterprise. I won’t make that mistake again.
10.0 ExcellentOct 21 2018
Pros: The vehicle was great.
9.6 ExcellentOct 5 2018
Easy pickup and even easier dropoffPros: I like the amount of time it took to pick up the car and drop it off. The car was clean and ran very well. It was great
8.4 ExcellentSep 5 2018

5.6 OkayJul 19 2020
Cons: I reserved a Jetta more than a month out from my vacation. I go to pick up my car. They tell me that they are giving me an upgrade to a 2 door mustang convertible. They don’t have anything else. I have a family of 4 with 2 car seats. The car was a pain to put 2 kids in car seats and luggage for 4 people. I don’t have much confidence in enterprise for my next visit.
5.2 OkayJul 14 2020
Pros: The dude at the dropoff was super nice and friendly. He stated they were understaffed and worked very hard to help us as quickly as possible.Cons: The vehicle had been recently smoked in. it smelled terrible. My son and wife asked multiple times to have the windows rolled down to get some fresh air inside. Very disappointing on SUPER hot days.
8.0 ExcellentJul 9 2019
Cons: Faster ok up. Enterprise "claim to fame", is their hospitality pk up, I understand vacation resorts traffic, however, 3 hrs. IS punishing and poor business decisions...
9.2 ExcellentMar 20 2019
Pros: Very very helpful all aroundCons: Price.
10.0 ExcellentMar 7 2019
Cons: Small rental car return signs at the Fort Walton airport. Be on the lookout.
6.0 GoodJun 18 2017
Enterprise was fine but the rental location was not at the airportPros: Once I was able to get an Uber to get to the rental location the rental process was quick and easy. The car was clean and ready. The seats in this car were pretty stained. Since the rental was in a touristy beach location, I'm thinking the stains were from repeated contact with wet swimwear. Not a big deal to me, but I was fearful I would be held accountable for the stained seats.Cons: I failed to notice the rental location was not at the airport although Enterprise did have a location at the Destin airport. So, I arrive and go to the Enterprise counter. The clerk politely points out that my rental is at an off-airport location. I ask about a shuttle, and she says there is none because they have a location at the airport (the one I was currently at). I ask about the cars at the airport, and she tells me she cannot come close to my rental rate as all they have left are SUVs. She suggests I take a cab or Uber to the other location. The cab driver at the airport wanted $35. Uber was $19 ($23 with a tip). Once I got to the other location about eight miles away the rental was smooth. The clerk at that location commented on my rental low price. She also let me leave the car at the airport upon return although it cost me another $25. So, I got a really low price but it cost me just under $50 and some time to get the car at a location distant from the airport. Watching where I rent next time!
10.0 ExcellentJun 17 2017
Good servicePros: They had the car prepared, very friendly and prepared. We were in and out in a matter of minutes. Same with drop off
7.2 GoodFeb 25 2017
Pros: excellent service.Cons: The only economy car they had was a smart car, NO space for anything! But! $12.00 for gas for 7 days. Make sure they have something other than a smart car.... you don't want it.
2.0 MediocreNov 25 2016
Need to be clear on location of the rental car!!!Pros: The reasonI rated POOR is when I arrived at the airport, I went to the Enterprise counter an found out that there was no reservation. My reservation was at someplace separate from the airport. To get to the place would have involved a taxi ride and extra time I did not have. Kyak should clearly state that their rental is an "in town" rental. There was another person at the counter at the same time who also fell into the same trap. Both of us ended up renting our cars from the airport counter.
