Great customer service with clean and newer vehicle!
1.9 HorribleJul 20 2021
The car was filthy. The front tires were bald. There was a horrible grinding sound when the car turned. The staff issuing the car was not friendly at all.

Pretty quick pickup/dropoff, nice car, a little high cost.Nice car, clean and in pretty good condition.Counter staff was quick and courteous but had to wait a few minutes for them to show up, both at pickup and drop off. Higher cost than rentals in neighboring town.

I've tried to call local number numerous times because I left something in the car. No one answers and I've called 10 times during office hours. Office was closed when I dropped off.

I’m being told I didn’t return the vehicle when I did - on time.
1.9 HorribleSep 4 2021
Pick Up: They gave me an older car that smelled like cigarette smoke. While I was the only customer, it felt like I was an inconvenience and they rushed the process. Drop Off: As a Hurricane Ida evacuee who was stranded with canceled flights, I chose to drive down. When I returned the rental early to Gulfport, it was returned with almost the exact gas level as it was given to me with. Being in the area of a major natural disaster, there were gas lines which made it cost and time prohibitive to fill up 1 more gallon. Hertz charged me for a full tank of gas at $10 per gallon— which I consider to be price gouging knowing the situation at hand. The representative was overwhelmed and barely acknowledged the drop off.

Horrible customer service
10.0 ExcellentNov 22 2020
The staff helped me t sync my phone since I had never done it before and all was easy after that.I had not requested this kind of car, yet I found that I was more than pleased with every aspect of it. And since I sat in that car for three days straight, driving from east coast to west coast, that is saying quite a lot.
6.0 GoodJun 29 2020
Car was nice, clean, and comfortable.Rate at pickup was about $70 more than rate quoted. (This was quickly fixed.) Drop-off point was a Mazda Dealership - there wasn't any signage at all. I had to ask the sales guys if I was in the right place and, even after they pointed me to the right place, the only "signage" was a COVID notice on the door and a rug on the floor INSIDE the facility. When a customer is trying to return property you by a specific deadline, this additional stress is not a good thing.
9.2 ExcellentJun 24 2019
Staff was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Easy drop off and prompt refund on hold.Can’t think of anything
2.0 MediocreMay 7 2019
NothingWas not able to rent because if their policy for security deposit. When reservation was cancelled my card was charged for the rental fee a second time. $350 charged to my credit for a rental that never occurred

LYHExcellent customer service! They even brought the car to me so I did not have to hike to the lot.
2.0 MediocreNov 19 2017
bad customer service. car was paid for with third party priceline. insurance purchased as well. come to find when we got to the airport to get the car we were denied because we were using a debit card. clearly using the debit card to pay should have been a prompt to tell us we could not use this card for the car since it was not a major credit card. I dont even understand the difference anyway. pay is pay. this caused us to be late to an event where my sister was lecturing and a dinner in her honor was delayed. this could have all been avoided if the person booking would have explained this rule

We got a car that did not have a manual with information on how to access the controls. The car honked every time we tried to use the cruise control. And it took forever to get the ad by Serius XM to go off the screen. We finally went online to find the car manual and were then able to locate and use the controls. The car worked well after that. More importantly, the people at Enterprise couldn’t have been nicer to deal with.

9.2 ExcellentDec 6 2016
The customer service representatives were very professional and knowledgeable, and the car was amazing to drive.Car had some garbage in it from previous renter. Also, I ended up paying more for insurance than I ought to have, but that one's mostly my own fault.

The car was clean and ready for pick upThe car wasn't full of gas so they said if I filled it I would be credited. I had to go back because they initially didn't give me the credit.
10.0 ExcellentJun 4 2019
Pick up and drop off were easy.The lady behind the counter at the Lynchburg Airport was less than helpful. She seemed bothered by my questions. She was due any day to have a baby, and it really showed in her attitude. She should not have been at work, she should have been home resting getting ready to have a child.
3.6 MediocreJun 10 2017
Horrible Customer Service.The car worked and was clean.Lynchburg rental was just as bad. Horrible customer service. Was told I could go to the employee's job for her with checking the car in or I could leave my number and e-mail address and she could get to it later but there might be a late fee. Will not rent from either location again!
7.2 GoodApr 20 2017
Mixed bagRecommended a upgrade which I took advantage of. The Maxima was a incredible and comfortable experience for the 6 1/2 hour drive. The car exterior was washed.The interior of the car was not cleaned. Fingerprints were all over the back seat windows. Food wrappers were present in the car. The car seems to have needed maintenance as well. I was picking up some road noise from the rear axle and I also heard a bang sound when I took left turns coming from the rear as well. I did not feel the car was safe as it needed to be.
9.6 ExcellentDec 14 2016
Easy serviceChecked in at Lynchburg. No wait. Quick Service.Car had cigarette smell.
5.2 OkaySep 1 2016
Car was clean; good gas mileage.Pick up was supposed to be at 8am but because only one staff member was there and she was dealing with a customer who was renting a moving van, she couldn't even start helping me until 8:30. Then she couldn't find my reservation. The delay caused me to miss one of my meetings.

Just a couple of hours east of the city is Richmond, the state’s capital, and in just over an hour, you can get to Roanoke. Having a car rental in Lynchburg ensures that these cities are within reach. Better yet, a vehicle gives you both the means and the necessary cargo space to make a day trip of some of the great hikes offered in the state’s Appalachian Mountains. You can pack your gear and head off in the early hours of the morning to tackle great trails in the Shenandoah National Park, about an hour north of Lynchburg.

Avis, Budget, and National all have service desks within the airport’s passenger terminal next to the baggage claim—after you’ve checked in, you can simply head to the adjacent parking lot where your car will be waiting for you.
  • Lynchburg, Virginia has a quaint downtown area and a number of attractions that are ideal for children. Because of this, you’ll find young families in the city hoping to explore some of the museums and other sites of interest.
