5.9 OkaySep 6 2021
The state inspection was expired we noticed on the way home. Thankfully no tickets. Small interior and didn't sit 3 comfortably let alone 4. Thought I was getting a mid size SUV. My prius had more leg room than the ecosport.
1.9 HorribleJul 16 2021
They called 45 minutes before pickup to tell us that the car we had reserved was not available and that they were cancelling our reservation, leaving us with no transportation options. I understand there is a rental car "shortage", but please don't accept reservations you cannot honor.

NothingNo car available once I got there, waste of an uber then I had to run down the street to try and make it to Enterprise before they closed. Staff seemed helpful to begin with, then just left me sitting there waiting time when they didn't have any cars. Never renting from that location again.

Easy to bookAlmost everything. I didn't have a mask and the guy behind the counter told me to go away. I was just dropped off by a uber and the nearest place selling masks was a 1 mile walk. He never offered to let me do the transaction outside. After I got in the car two minutes down the road a warning light came on indicating the car had been in an accident. I had to call HERTZ and photo the warning light so as to not be blamed for something I didn't do. When I got to the airport drop off no one was around and no sign for the key drop. I had to guess what to do and had no confirmation of an inspection of the car, just walked out assuming I did what I was supposed to do.

INCREASED THE PRICE OF ONE DAY FROM $32 TO $139Horrible. I was forced to keep the car longer since I WAS DROPPING OFF LATE and they were trying to charge me almost 3x for one day. Horrible. Never renting from them again.
2.8 MediocreOct 16 2017
I did not like that when I went to pick up the car they charge me an additional $200 for a deposit in a sneaky back handed way. First they said I needed to swipe my card to verify that it was the one that was used in the online purchase, and told me that they were not going to charge me anything. Then they said that they where going to hold the $200 deposit until the vehicle was returned. The deposit was not release until 5 days after the vehicle was returned. Additionally, the vehicle was really dirty and the power supply did not work so i was not able to charge my phone.

Easy PassThe staff was very friendly.Didn't tell us how the Easy Pass worked. I'm a german Customer so I didn't know. I Hope that I don't get a fine.

One of the staff was friendly. The lady the originally took care of me, she seems like she didn’t want to be there. She gave a a dirty and smelly car. Also the car she gave me was dangerous because it was raining really hard and the windshield wipers, you can tell, they needed to be cleaned. Moving forward I got a new replacementCustomer service

Staff was friendly, flexible, and helpful.Wasn't able to get a ride from my hotel to pickup my rental.
7.2 GoodJul 6 2019
The staff was very friendly and helpfulWAY too EXPENSIVE!!!! I paid over $1,200 for renting a van for 7 days. That is $800 over what I should have had to pay, had another rental car business in the area had a van that I could have rented. I will not be renting from you again, because of the outrageous expense.

They claimed it haf just been cleaned, but it didn't look like it. The seats were extremely dirty and it took 45 minutes to just pick up the car
8.8 ExcellentSep 20 2016
Hidden FeesThe Elantra was a pleasure to drive and the staff was helpful at both pick-up and drop-off.There were fees I did not know existed that doubled the $40 a day cost. I don't even know what CDW stands for, but it cost me $22. Also the liability coverage was advertised at under $10 and I was charged $13.

Car outside should have been cleaned better and also the inside window.
2.4 MediocreAug 5 2018
Hard to findAssociate was friendly and helpful.I wanted to extend the rental for a week and was told that it would be $900 (for a midsize car). Took my business elsewhere for less than $200. This caused me an unnecessary 90 minute round trip and cost Budget a week’s rental fee. Also, the rental location in Fredericksburg is not well described; it’s buried in Sears Auto Center.

Worked fine for meWe arrived by train for a tour of the area and departure to Dulles. Took Lyft to the office, Found the office in the nick of time (called ahead) the manager took us to the car and explained how it worked. The car gave us no problems. On the whole a good experience.Everything was fine

Car not available for hoursGood customer service, car clean and in great condition, easy drop-off, got a discount for the poor pickup timing.Reserved a car online for a morning pickup time, and arrived at the rental office to hear that no car would be available for several hours. they explained it was an interface issue between the website and their actual reservation system, so that the website allowed me to reserve a car that did not exist. Luckily, I had a little flex time in my schedule, but was disappointed.

Staff was nice to talk to.Took a long time to get going - Either the computer system is very old and slow or else the staff is not great. Too costly - Adding one driver DOUBLED the cost of the rental! $65.00 (almost bait-and-switch tactics) i will never use Avis again!

Top tips for renting a car in Fredericksburg

  • Renting a car in Fredericksburg, VA, is an excellent means of getting around the city. Besides alleviating maintenance and car insurance costs, you also enjoy the freedom of getting to whichever destination you want, such as Pioneer Museum or Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, at whatever time you find convenient. Furthermore, you also get to choose the brand and model of the car you prefer, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure.
  • Visitors can enter Fredericksburg via Washington Reagan National Airport, located about 50 miles north of the city, Baltimore/Washington International Airport (98 miles north), and Washington Dulles (45 miles north). There are car rentals in Fredericksburg offices in all these airports at on-airport rental car counters located in the parking garage A, including Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Avis, Alamo, Hertz, Budget, and Payless.
  • Driving around Fredericksburg can be challenging, considering the city is a commuter-heavy destination. That means you'll have to deal with larger vehicles, such as buses, trailers, and transport vans, as well as pedestrians in the city center and as you pass through residential areas. Be sure to be alert, patient, and observant of traffic rules.
  • You'll experience different weather and road conditions throughout the year. During winter, there are high chances of skidding due to snow and ice. We advise you to break earlier and pressing the pedal gently. Heavy thunderstorms and rainfall during summer can reduce road visibility. Therefore, drive slower and be alert. There are usually many cars on the roads during winter. It would be best to keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. Consider it a buffer zone for reacting to a potential road hazard.
