This Enterprise location was fast and friendly. Loved the service!
6.0 GoodOct 16 2019
Easy drop offThe car type I ordered wasn't available when I arrived, even though I booked with Enterprise specifically to avoid that experience that I'd read about often in Hertz reviews. They offered me a full size pickup in its stead which I did not want as I was going to be driving/parking in the city. A different, slightly larger car arrived and I was offered that for an extra $10 a day. Even though they didn't have my reserved car, they refused to budge on the price for the slightly larger car until someone else called and offered more money for the pickup they initially offered me at no additional cost. I understand business means money, but don't dangle a slightly bigger car in front of me when you don't even have the one I reserved. This location only cares about money, not customer satisfaction. Very disappointed in this company.

Jared waited on me both for my car pick up and return drop off. He was excellent. Kind, polite, professional and knowledgable. In fact, everything that you would want or expect from a valuable employee. He certainly is a role model for his co-workers.Because I had the blessing of Jared waiting on my for pickup and return - my experience was fantastic!!
6.4 GoodMay 20 2017
Poor pickup experience, extreemly unprofessional customer serviceI need to discuss a serious problem with pickup, the worst customer service I have ever received. I would like this unprofessional behavior addressed with the employee. It reflects very poorly on the company itself and was response received was definitely not needed.

I had to cancel my reservation because of Enterprisenothing. I didnt rent a car.Enterprise has a policy that you cannot have two rental cars out at once. I have an Enterprise rental car at my home, because I recently got into a car crash and I have an insurance-provided Enterprise. When I went on vacation, I assumed I could rent another Enterprise. It turns out they have a policy for only one car at a time, which they didnt detect when I booked the car, or when I called them to confirm my reservation 24 hours out. As a result, on vacation, I got to the Enterprise (which was not near any other car rental places) and found out I could not rent a car. I had to cancel my reservation and lost half a day of my vacation before getting a rental car somewhere else. This was a completely avoidable situation if Enterprise's IT system would have auto-detected this in advance. But beyond that - its just a stupid policy! Why wouldn't they want me to rent two cars, pay them MORE MONEY, and be a happy customer? I called Enterprise to complain, and talked to a customer service guy who said somebody from Corporate would call me to talk about my situation. 5 days later, nobody called. I'd still like that call.

Airport vs off site needs better ID on booking sitThough my rental request was for an airport location, an offsite location is what was loaded on the reservation site, and this is what I booked. Clearly I should have been more careful, but the booking site should have been much clearer that this site was 8 miles from the airport. At the MSY airport, the Enterprise staff there was less than helpful. This was a not the usual customer service I am accustomed to at Enterprise sites. Once we were able to make our way to the off site locale service was as anticipated. My travel distress could have been eliminated by the booking page highlighting the fact that this was an offsite location in BOLD RED!

The mini van ran well and had enough comfortable seating!I would really appreciate some compensation as the Pacifica Minivan we rented and prepaid in full way in advance was absolutely FILTHY and terribly dirty inside and out! During this time of Covid and since you advertise Hertz is abiding by Covid cleaning protocols this was just the opposite! The car was so dirty we had to go have it vacuumed and wipe down with Lysol wipes and picked up amount of dirty cups and trash! The exterior was also filthy and we couldn’t even see out of the windshield with all the bugs so we had to pay to go have a car wash done! We prepaid for this vehicle way in advance and this should not have been the case when we were rushing to leave for our trip! We were extremely disappointed and would like some compensation! Thanks

The employees that I dealt with where very friendly and helpful. They made sure the vehicle was clean, had a full tank of fuel and pointed out all the minor issues with the car so we would not be blamed for these things.
2.0 MediocreMay 29 2020
They wouldn’t answer the phone, then said the day of the rental that they “couldn’t guarantee” they would have the car I booked weeks ago. They said to call back later in the day to check. When I called back no one answered. I rented last minute from a competitor and had to spend extra money.Literally everything.

Hertz was the worst company I’ve ever felt with. Customer service was horrible. I ended up never even getting a car from them.
10.0 ExcellentSep 22 2018
The staff in Metairie LA was wonderful. Precious helped us fix some problems that we had with KAYAK and made sure our vacation went off without a hitch! Can't say enough good things about them.When I realized that there was a problem with my reservation KAYAK no one at KAYAK would even try to help me. I was very disappointed with them and frustrated that this would impact our vacation. The local office of Hertz in Metairie LA took care of all of it for me and I am very grateful to them. I am very disappointed with KAYAK.

Confirm everything yourselfThe address given on the confirmation was not accurate. Upon trying to call Hertz to get their address, no one answered the phone. I tried calling multiple times to no avail.

Quick and easy rentalWhat a great and easy rental. This was perfect to keep our family moving through the holiday!
10.0 ExcellentNov 26 2016
The girl who checked me out through my rental was very helpful and patient. I ended up getting a Beetle instead of a smaller 4-door and absolutely loved it for my 16 hour drive.The cars on Kayak are not necessarily available at this location, but they give you an option to exchange your vehicle at the airport if you were hoping for something bigger.

We were so unsure of what we would get...read other online reviews and read horrible things. But honestly, we don’t know why! This place was wonderful (yes, a bit sketchy looking from the outside, so don’t judge a book by its cover here!), the staff was amazing and friendly, and we got a new Kia that was great! Super! And the price?! Unbeatable! I couldn’t be happier!
10.0 ExcellentMay 20 2021
Very friendly staff. One staff member offered to even drive us to the airport for 10% less than an Uber so we didn't have to wait for one or move our luggage!The woman we signed out papers with could have talked a bit slower. She spoke so quickly we had to ask multiple times for her to repeat herself. But she was very friendly and helpful!

Great price compared to others. Hertz cancelled my reservation as I was getting on the plane. Fine Found this last minute. No complaints.

They push the insurance scam real hard. They try to tell you you got to have proof of personal insurance with you. I walked out the door.
2.0 MediocreMar 3 2021
The staff was somewhat friendly but they are stuck in a fowl location and many of there customers are turned away and unhappy.They could have clearly stated in big letters that they don’t rent to any one who doesn’t have proof of full collision auto insurance.

Few staff was ok.Need to ensure proper maintenance of the vehicle before renting them we rented a smoke vehicle with flat tire.

N/AThey confirmed the reservation. Showed up and the car wasn’t available. No other cars were offered as an option to replace at the same price. Unreal. Didn’t end up getting a car.
