Sep 27 2016
Pros: The quick availability of my reserved car.
Cons: I had to go back in to the counter to report damage on the car. That should have already been noted on my reservation form before I rented the car...Or someone should walk us out and go over the car when we rent it.

Car had broken AC
Cons: Car had broken AC on a 92 degree day. Long wait in line.
6.4 Good
Oct 18 2016
Pros: The car was in excellent condition, quick check in quick return. Very professional but not very friendly service. The cost for the rental was very high, given that I had the cheapest economy on the lot this was very surprising. The car did not have cruise control or automatic lights which is odd given that almost all new cars have this feature. This was very unpractical when going on a long trip or driving at night. Specially in Florida.

no surprises, which is a good thing!
Pros: everything about the rental experience met my expectations. it was a intermediate car, and the gas mileage was great. like brand new <2K miles Kia.
Cons: My wife said " if that was an intermediate car, I would hate to see you in a compact!"
7.2 Good
Feb 1 2017
Cons: Was not given option to pre-pay for fuel at a reasonable rate, and was unable to locate a gas station near the Tampa airport dropoff point to refuel-- there were not any convenient options that I could find and the agent at dropoff agreed that it's hard to find around there and it "helps to know the area." Um, thanks a lot for sharing that while gouging me for $10/gallon fuel.

Beware of the first car they show you!
Pros: The service provided by the Belleville Enterprise Rent-a-Car office was awesome!
Cons: Classic upsell - and I'm the sucker that fell for it. "Your full-sized car is ready". Around the corner comes an old Toyota Camry, with a fresh detail job. Looks great - not renting a new and impressive car. Renting an old car. "Well, we can get you into XYZ car for $15 more per day, or the LMNO SUV for $20 per day." Great salesmanship, just beware of the first car you sign up for. It maybe a Nissan Altima equivalent - but what year?

Pros: Nice Car, clean, easy drop off
Cons: When I got there the person told me I had to pay for upgrade and had to leave my car somewhere else other than where I chose to drop it off. The total bill was 2.5 times what it was said on Kayak. I had to argue and talk to manager to get what I was told on Kayak, did not need that hassle.

Do not Use Trird Party Websites to book on Enterpr
Pros: nothing
Cons: This was the absolute worse Enterprise experience I have ever had. The clerk that greeted me was rude, did not say hello or look up, She only sputtered "license and credit card". She then demanded my boarding pass, which I did not have. I made the reservation through a travel site and the Miami airport was what they sent me to. I called the office to let them know I was running late, but no one picked up the phone. Then I called the 800 Rent A Car number and they only said I need a credit card to rent from there and nothing about a boarding pass. I asked the rude clerk to let me talk to the manager, and he said they do not rent to local people. They had my reservation in the system and they should honor it. I asked to to talk to his boss. A rude guys came out and basically said "too bad". I then said that since Enterprise told me this location was OK, they should give me a ride to the correct location. No dice, even though that is what Enterprise if known for. I said I was going to call the 800 number. He said he would call the police. We were both on the phone. I was telling the 800 number person how the manager was as calling the police. I then hand the phone over to the manager so he could get some tips on customer service from the 800 number person. The call was dropped after a couple of minutes. I left and easliy rented a car from National. On my way to the car I saw the police he called. He had LIED, telling them I was 1) in the way and 2) calling him names. This was the worst experience I have had renting a car. I partially blame your website, since it does not divulge that locals cannot rent cars there. Out of all of the Enterprise locations you sent me to the exact wrong one.

Nice car!
Pros: Wasn't expecting the infiniti 2017 car for such a reasonable price! Thanks Hertz!
Cons: We have a problem with the cigarette smell, which should have been addressed with seriously by Hertz. Pls. impose the proper penalty to your customers who smoke, and clean, get rid of that smell before you have it rented to other customers.

Great service and learned a tip!
Pros: This agency called me in the morning to let me know I may not have a car at the time I requested it. I ended up getting a car but the overall tip is to never trust the call centers and make sure you talk to someone at the location to ensure they have a car, especially during peak rental periods.

NEVER AGAIN!
Pros: Not a darned thing!
Cons: I was provided by KAYAK a date, location and time to pick up an Avis rental car. When I arrived on time at the designated location the Avis rental counter was un-attended and the rental counter was closed. When counting Avis by telephone Avis was 100% un-cooperative and un-helpful in assisting me to secure an Avis rental car from an alternative Avis location. Fortunately, albeit "last minute", I luckily found a rental vehicle from one of Avis' competitors. As a result of this incident, I will NEVER AGAIN use Avis - or KAYAK.

Pros: Loved backup camera
Cons: Counter closed at pickup. Had to go to the sister counter where there was a big line and it took forever. No one seemed to know what was going on and seemed to be in no hurry to get any of us out of there. They were friendly tho. Then drop off at PBI very poorly marked. Plus I thought the rate was high.
