Cons:No 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.
Pros:Easy to book
Cons:Almost 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.
Pros:Great car, quick service, good price.
Pros:It was a perfect experience
Cons:Nothing at all !!
Cons:Horrible. 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.

Pros:Friendly, easy, cheapest and the best (and only) selection of cars available in the area.
Cons:The system took my online reservation but they didn’t have any cars available ☹️
8.4 Very good
Cons:Car outside should have been cleaned better and also the inside window.
Pros:Associate was friendly and helpful.
Cons: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.
Pros:We 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.
Cons:Everything was fine

Pros: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 replacement
Pros:Friendly staff. Quick pick up and drop off process. Best value.
Pros:Staff was friendly, flexible, and helpful.
Cons:Wasn't able to get a ride from my hotel to pickup my rental.
Pros:The staff was very friendly and helpful
Cons:WAY 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.
Pros:Needed a pick-up and enterprise had the best price. Brand new ram 2500. Customer service was good.
Cons: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
