Aug 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

The only saving grace was the neighboring enterprise location (15 mins away in Paramus) stayed open 10 mins later (past it's 7pm close) to rent me a car. This car smelled extremely strongly of cigarette smoke.

Cons:

The Mahwah locatin closes at 6pm and they let me select that as my pickup time without altering me that the office would be closed and there would be no way to pick up the car. HORRENDOUS oversight.
