Nice car. Reasonable price. Good service
1.9 HorribleAug 16 2021
It was clean and cost effective. Kinda off…. There is so many more cons to our experience. There was a good size crack in the front windshield. The brakes on the car are awful. So jerky. One of the seat beaks in the back seat were wrapped around the head rest so tight that we couldn’t get it to unwind. Our entire trip someone was left without a seat belt. And lastly, and so disappointing, it was stated that this was not the location at the airport. What inconvenience. That costed use another $150. We won’t use enterprise again. That’s for sure.

The first rental was full of dog hair. The second car wasn’t cleaned either. The starter was going out. People we’re friendly.

The car rental pickup was 9.7 miles from the Charleston airport, which wasn’t bad! The car was new, comfortable & great gas mileage.

Staff was very friendly, car was so nice! Cost was a bit much and it cost $100 to get to and from airport.
1.9 HorribleJul 19 2021
Got there and they did Not have car of my choice. So, they were putting me in anything that was good for them. Then the price kept going up!! Then they said you need a deposit.!?? I told them I honestly didn't know about the deposit. So, next I had to say , Sorry! I can't rent today. Too expensive....for my budget this week. But I did try. I walked away disappointed.

When we arrived at the Enterprise location we had reserved the car at, they did not have our car available for us. We had to find another Enterprise in the city, taxi 20 minutes to get there, and then obtain a car similar to the one we had originally reserved.

They had car ready for me when I showed up.I didn't realize that the pickup was several miles away from airport which was inconvienent and expensive taking an Uber to and from location to pick-up and drop off car.

The pick up was seamless. However, I was schedulled to pick up a Ford Edge and I received a Kia.It's not "comparable". This is a long term rental situation for me so I'm likely to change a go with Hertz in the next week or two if I can't get a better vehicle.
1.9 HorribleOct 5 2021
The worst car rental experience ever.
5.9 OkaySep 17 2021
When we picked up the car the employee was on a phone call the entire time and did not get off of his phone. The car was great. 10 miles in the check engine light and change oil light came on so that was frustrating. The cost of the rental was astronomical. $435 for 48 hour rental is insane, but we did have a reservation and it was there for us so we did appreciate that. The Apple car play did not work and we could not charge our phones w the USB outlets so that was kind of annoying. Loved the 4 Runner though! Very comfortable car!!

It was a quick and easy in-and-out experience. It was not personable but that is okay.

I didn't like anything about my experience with Budget. The people where I picked up the car in Charleston were lame and unhelpful.This was the worst experience picking up a rental car ever. I had prepaid for the car and she couldn't find my prepaid amount even though she had the reservation and I showed her the confirming email on my phone. She charged me a higher amount and said there wasn't anything she could do. The car was in a very difficult spot to pull out of the lot. I had to back it out for about 100 feet even though she had asked her assistant to pull the car out. The car was dirty and the windshield was dirty. After I left the lot, i discovered the gas tank was less than 1/4 full.

Booked a rental car for my trip to Charleston. Thankfully, I saw the scathingly terrible reviews and decided to call ahead to make sure my reserved car was there. Very rude woman said "no cars here" and when I asked if there was another place that had some (even though I already had a reservation) she just hung up. Terrible experience.Actually honoring your customers reservations and coming through with a promised vehicle rental. Or, just a thought, do not allow bookings when you know there are not vehicles available!

Glad I got a car. Charleston was out.All good

Check in was very slow! Person went on break as line was growing. He guy was very welcoming and the gal (who I had) said nothing but what the prompts were. No hello, enjoy your trip, welcome to Charleston!

they nickel and dime you for everything. i filled up with gas 1 exit away from airport and they charged me $10 to fill up tank at avis as they said it wasn't full. ridiculous. How much more full could it be. I drove 5 miles after i filled it
7.6 GoodOct 31 2020
Staff both where I picked it up and where I dropped you off for great.I thought I had a price of $88 for the rental but my credit card was billed for $131 that’s a significant difference! Somebody needs to explain to me

The prius hybrid got 55 mile per gallon.he threatened to charge me a $250 fee because there was pet hair in the car. We were not told no pets. This survey app also is glitchy and sucks

The drop-off was easy and efficient.The car was dirty when I picked it up and the lady at the counter said that cleaning the vehicle was not possible. Additionally, the pressure in the right front tire was low, which made me nervous, and the auxiliary cord did not work. The AVIS representative did not offer to help me with any of these problems. The low tire pressure was particularly disconcerting as I had a 5 hour drive to complete that day.
10.0 ExcellentJun 6 2021
The waiting line was way too long. More people to help serve the people faster or have a Express service where all paperwork is already done and you can just verify your ID and payment and Go!!!!!!

I had a horrible experience with the lady who was working there when I dropped off the car yesterday. There were many cars blocking access to the lot so I parked at the gate - she yelled at me in front of other people ‘I’m not taking your keys until you park that car’ she wanted me to drive through a gap that I’d already assessed was to narrow for me to get the car safely through - awful experience, actually left me shaken up.
2.0 MediocreMay 18 2021
should’ve have been more courteous send us an email explaining the company has no vehicles before the date of pickup, I lost a day of work thinking my reservation was good but I was told “Life happens “Notifications or warnings before the date of pickup

Pick up and drop off was quick and easy.Car smelled of cigarette smoke.

The car was givenTo us with only a quarter of a tank of gas. The clerk said that he would put this in the computer and we would not be charged for a full tank upon return. He did not document this in the computer. Upon pick up, we noticed several ants crawling out of the ventilation system. When trying to phone Avis to tell them about this and for the potential of exchanging the car, the agent was unable to help us in anyway. She would not put us through to any other customer service agent, And she indicated that she was unable to document this in our record. So, in essence we picked up a car that had only a quarter of a tank of gas and was crawling with ants.

The rental offfice at 390 Meeting St was closed when I went to pick up my car so I had to arrange a new rental the following day. The office was at the Sears Auto Center which is closing and the Avis people could’t open up until 15 minutes late. My rental was for one day and cost me $150 which did. include $30 for insurance. The Avis agents were courteous but my overall experience was not good. Avis is moving out of the Sears Auto Center as I understand it. As for the office at Meeting St, I had called Avis and was lead to believe I couldn’t get the car until after 12 but the office closed at 12.
8.4 ExcellentApr 23 2018
Car was very clean, no issues with driving at all.This location is an off-airport type, and there was no transportation to and from the airport. The drop-off up-charge was $120, which seems excessive.

You didn’t have the car I reserved and it was substituted for a truck that had no runners, so my 75 year old mom and I had to jump out of and climb into the truck, we both were very uncomfortable and had to spend more on gas as the truck was not as economical as a car would have been
