Moe, my first contact. While swapped, handled my needs like a pro. He is a great rep for Enterprise Car Rental.Nothing really.
9.6 ExcellentNov 2 2020
Friendly staff and quick service without upselling.The parking lot is not marked well enough given the tight space. Painting on the ground would help determine where to pick up and drop off the cars and where to wait if you're getting dropped off or picked up by someone?

My biggest issue and reason I will no longer use kMy biggest issue and reason I will no longer use kayak or enterprise is the fact that I was in a way robbed. I feel like the Kayak and Enrerprise coordinated their efforts in order to charge me almost double what I signed up for on your site. I was quoted 1 rental price + an optional $9 daily full coverage option. When I picked up the rental I again confirmed that I was signed up through the $9 daily coverage. It should have totaled $27 (3 days at $9) but when I returned the car I was sent home with an invoice that charged me almost double the total rental quote due to a $106 coverage which was about $79 more than I was quoted, and $79 more than I had been told by the Enterprise agent at pickup. The agent made absolutely zero effort to resolve this blatant fraud and again this is the reason that I 1) will never use your services again and 2) the reason that I'm going to make it my duty to spread the word both by mouth and by internet to as many people as possible.

More than expectedWas going on a 3-day cross country road trip for California to Florida when we were upgraded for free frim a subcompact to SUV with no additional cost. The SUV comfort more than made up for the increased gas cost (especially since gas was so cheap through the South compared to CA). The service was fast and courteous on both ends: from pick up in CA to dropoff at Orlando Airport.

Pick up time listed on the reservation confirmation was 1200hr. The location closed at 1200hr and was closed for the rest of the weekend. So I didnt get a car and had to make other arrangements.

Someone's Glasses were left in the car. Not sure how cleaning crew missed it being a glasses wearer myself I know I would have appreciated someone returning them to me.

Dirty beaten up carI like that I got a bigger car as he said but it still looks a compact to me.First thing he said when he looked up my reservation that I'm late and he has no car for me usually at this time but luckily it was slow so I had an upgraded car. Whole car is dirty And beaten up. Scratches all over the car and back bumper got hit onto somewhere. I feel like I'm driving a 10yr old car. My pick up time is at noon at I got there by 3pm due to circumstances.

Top tips for renting a car in Huntington Beach

  • Huntington Beach offers various entertainment and sightseeing opportunities, such as the Huntington Beach Pier, where you can partake in some fishing activities with friends or colleagues. Using assistance from car rentals in Huntington Beach, you can drive about 4.2 miles to the Bolsa Chica State Beach for a fun-filled surfing day. You can get to this city via three airports, the Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport, and Long Beach Airport.
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is about 36 miles away from Huntington Beach. The John Wayne Airport (SNA) is around 10 miles, while the Long Beach Airport (LGB) sits approximately 17 miles from central Huntington Beach. John Wayne Airport has a convenient center for car rentals in Huntington Beach where you can get Fox, U-Save, Thrifty, Turo, and GREEN MOTION services. You can board a shuttle from the airport’s Ground Transportation Center at the lower Arrival Level to the pick-up location. Long Beach Airport contains a Rental Car Center with several providers such as Budget, Turo, Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and National. You can access this center by following the signs to the Baggage Claim, exiting the terminal, and proceeding to their counters. Upon arriving via the Los Angeles International Airport, you can find companies like Ace Rent-A-Car, GREEN MOTION, NU Car, Economy Rent a Car, Priceless, U-Save, and Thrifty at the Rental Car office. The airport has a courtesy shuttle service that can efficiently transport you to the pick-up point. You can get these buses below the purple Rental Car Shuttles sign outside the Baggage Claim on the arrivals level islands.
  • Huntington Beach has freeway access to the three airports, making it comfortable to move in and around the city in your rented car. The multiple public streets and major highways, such as I-405 (San Diego Freeway), Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway), and Highway 39 (Beach Blvd), that facilitate efficient maneuverability. You want to carefully watch for cyclists because many Huntington Beach residents use bicycles and sometimes ride outside the assigned bike lane. The city also has jaywalking situations, so you should drive with keen attention to the pedestrians.
  • Huntington Beach experiences heavy traffic along the major roads during the evening rush hours, such as I-405 that welcomes commuters from LAX.
