5.2 OkayAug 8 2020
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 replacementCons: Customer service
10.0 ExcellentJun 12 2020
Pros: Friendly staff. Quick pick up and drop off process. Best value.
10.0 ExcellentSep 2 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly, flexible, and helpful.Cons: Wasn't able to get a ride from my hotel to pickup my rental.
7.2 GoodJul 6 2019
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpfulCons: 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.
10.0 ExcellentJan 12 2017
Fast and best value.Pros: Needed a pick-up and enterprise had the best price. Brand new ram 2500. Customer service was good.
5.2 OkaySep 27 2016
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
8.8 ExcellentSep 20 2016
Hidden FeesPros: The Elantra was a pleasure to drive and the staff was helpful at both pick-up and drop-off.Cons: 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.

Pros: Friendly, easy, cheapest and the best (and only) selection of cars available in the area.
2.0 MediocreJun 8 2020
Cons: The system took my online reservation but they didn’t have any cars available ☹️
8.4 ExcellentMay 21 2019
Cons: Car outside should have been cleaned better and also the inside window.
2.4 MediocreAug 5 2018
Hard to findPros: 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.
10.0 ExcellentJun 5 2018
Worked fine for mePros: 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
9.2 ExcellentAug 5 2017
EasyPros: The ease of booking, walking in and picking up. Betty the customer service agent was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! Turning in the car was east as well.Cons: The car smelled of smoke and seemed to have some mechanical issues. But it was great for my needs.
10.0 ExcellentJun 18 2017
Pros: Very happy with the rental agent. Very friendly. Car very comfortable.
6.4 GoodNov 1 2016
Car not available for hoursPros: Good customer service, car clean and in great condition, easy drop-off, got a discount for the poor pickup timing.Cons: 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.

Pros: Staff was nice to talk to.Cons: 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!

2.0 MediocreJan 9 2021
Pros: NothingCons: 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.
2.0 MediocreJan 7 2021
Pros: Easy to bookCons: 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.
10.0 ExcellentMay 12 2019
Pros: Great car, quick service, good price.
10.0 ExcellentJun 19 2018
Pros: It was a perfect experienceCons: Nothing at all !!
2.0 MediocreOct 18 2017
INCREASED THE PRICE OF ONE DAY FROM $32 TO $139Cons: 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.
2.8 MediocreOct 16 2017
Cons: 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.
7.6 GoodAug 3 2017
Easy PassPros: The staff was very friendly.Cons: 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.
2.0 MediocreJul 30 2017
They didn't have the car size I neededCons: I had to cancel and they waited EIGHT DAYS to return my money.
4.8 OkayJul 26 2017
Room for improvementPros: In person, the staff at the Fredericksburg, VA office were very nice and helpful. I dropped off after hours, and I realized that I forgot to refill the fuel, I called the office first thing in the morning and they allowed me to come back and fill it to avoid the $9.99 a gallon charge. Once I was able to find a location with a car for an exchange (due to car issues) they were quick and friendly.Cons: The original car I rented to drive from VA to IL had some issues, the major one being that about 2/3 the way through my trip, the RPMs were running very high, and as I accelerated to merge onto the highway it was rather shaky and loud. When I arrived to IL, the Fredericksburg office was closed, so I waited to call until the next day to see what my options were for my return trip. I tried 5 times the following day, and no one answered. The day after that, I decided to try the office one more time before calling corporate. They answered and said that I could take it to any Hertz in IL. I was in rural IL, so once I found a location that was still open (as in, not permanently closed), they could not guarantee that they had a car available. I then called another location (1 hour away) and they said they could have a car within an hour. I arrived approximately 1.5 hours later and they told me they did not have a car available, but directed me to drive across town to another location. Once I arrived, they had a car and it was a quick process.

Good rentalPros: The car I wanted was ready and available. Agent did not pressure me into anything I did not want.Cons: Getting out of the parking lot was hard due to ongoing roadwork.
