2.8 MediocreJun 14 2020
Pros: Staff were nice and car was reasonably pricedCons: Car smelled horribly of cigarettes. I went back and asked for a different car, which had the same problem. Staff were unsurprised you hear that the cars had strong smoke smell and did not have another car to offer. I tried to clean myself and keep windows open as I needed the car but the smell was awful. I have never experienced such a poorly cleaned/smoke ridden rental car.
6.0 GoodSep 17 2018
Pros: It was a new reliable car that drove nicely. Pick up and drop off was easy and convenient.Cons: I had to take the car home right after pick up to clean the inside of the windshield. It was so dirty I couldn't see out of it. We packed up the car and left for our vacation. When we arrived at our destination, we pulled the suitcases out of the trunk to find them to be wet! We drove through some rain and apparently it makes it's way inside the trunk. We had some wet clothes which was a huge inconvenience to try to get dey in a hotel room. It wasn't a good way to start my vacation.
8.8 ExcellentAug 14 2018
Pros: Car was great overall and staff was also great!! Easy process for pick up and drop off!Cons: Inside wasn’t very clean. You could tell someone before had rented with a dog or animal as white hairs were still near around shift console and on sides of seats/ back of trunk area.
10.0 ExcellentAug 9 2018
New Bedford Budget is awesomePros: The lady who waited on me was an angel! Somehow my reservation had been canceled but she got me the car I needed and a slightly better deal than my original reservation! I was in and out in 20 minutes. AND the drop off in New Jersey I was waited on even though I had gone to the Budget vs Avis which was what the car had papers for. Thanks for the awesome service!Cons: NOTHING!
7.2 GoodNov 28 2017
Good value, but car smelled of cigarettesPros: Pick-up was a breeze, and received friendly and helpful customer service there. The price was great. Car ran smoothly and without issues.Cons: The car smelled of cigarettes. Drop-off was a bit on the slow side.
10.0 ExcellentDec 20 2016
Pros: Check in counter is always well attended and employees are always very helpful.
7.6 GoodJan 4 2016
Easy drop offPros: This was an easy drop off in New Bedford. The guys working there were fast and efficient.
5.2 OkayDec 28 2015
get what you pay forPros: good priceCons: first car smelled like cigarette smoke. second appeared to have a gas leak. can't believe they were going to let us drive away in a vehicle like that - very dangerous
2.0 MediocreOct 11 2015
Never got my carCons: Rental place called me the night before to tell me they didn't have my car. When I called in the morning (4 hours after the reservation time) they still didn't have my car. I never got the rental that day.

4.4 OkayAug 18 2017
Wrong car, almost twice quoted pricePros: Nothing. They met us at the New Bedford Pier at least with a car, but not the right one.Cons: The car was a whole size down from a full suv to a crv for a family of 5. Charged us over 300 dollars too much for it.
10.0 ExcellentMay 29 2017
Pros: Employee at New Bedford airport Avis counter was fantastic! I wishing could remember her name. Nicest car rental employees I have ever met!
4.0 OkayApr 21 2017
Cons: No where did it say if I was using a debit card I needed to provide 2 utility bills, so by the time I went BACK home to get my bills and head BACK to the rental the place was closed. So I had to use my own vehicle to go on vacation
10.0 ExcellentJan 6 2017
Great, supportive rentalPros: The team at Enterprise worked with me to get our paperwork in order; when we'd been waiting quite a while to pick up our vehicle, they let me have a better car for the same price just to save me time. They were very, very helpful.Cons: There was no mention of needing a credit card to rent the vehicle. I only use debit, so this turned out to be a major problem. The Enterprise people were very nice about adjusting the proof of credit requirements, though, so I was able to rent the car. Had they not been, though, it would have been a major disaster - being all packed, ready to hit the road in the rental with a kid in tow, only to be rejected because I don't use credit cards. There should be clearer notice of that requirement at the time of placing the order online.
4.0 OkayDec 30 2016
Pros: FriendlyCons: Took 30 minutes to pick up car I had already booked. Car smelled of cigarette smoke.
8.0 ExcellentNov 22 2016
Friendly servicePros: Car was new and clean. Staff was friendly. Free upgrade because the car we reserved was not there.Cons: Car we reserved online was not available at the location. Confusion between Kayak online insurance and rental insurance at location. Know the difference!

10.0 ExcellentAug 19 2020
Pros: Friendly service and price was great.
4.0 OkayAug 4 2019
Pros: Helpful but stupid. Gave me an incorrect price at pickup and then and then at dropoff it ended being the double. It was a ripoffCons: They should give you the correct quote from the beggining
2.0 MediocreApr 15 2019
Pros: NothingCons: This rental never happened. They started calling me Thursday, for the Saturday rental, saying they were. It sure they would have the truck I requested. Friday, they went back and forth saying they would have it, then they would not. Finally they said I could rent Monday and pick up from another loca
7.2 GoodJun 5 2017
Cons: Location only staffed by 1 person, had to wait for associate to return from lunch
10.0 ExcellentDec 21 2016
Good experiencePros: I wish they had a pickup and drop off service like enterprise. Other than that it was great service for the price. They accepted my debit card with credit check.
2.0 MediocreSep 21 2016
Cons: I was uninformed of a credit check and no refund with a debit card purchase unon finding out I could not rent. Completely unacceptable. I did not receive a rental from this company and I am down 138$. Never again.
9.6 ExcellentMay 2 2016
Pros: Convenient pickup and drop off for this one way rental. The car was a nice one and comfortable. Basically was clean, but the windshield needed further cleaning. It was badly streaked, but that was just a minor inconvenience.

8.4 ExcellentApr 26 2019
Cons: The car I picked up on New Bedford on the 23rd neaded to be vaccuumed. I also feel it was very expensive.
2.0 MediocreOct 12 2015
Pros: The amount of room in it.Cons: I didn't like the fact your cigarette lighter didn't work, the safety of our wellbeing wasn't there, we couldn't use the gps nor be able to charge it or phones. So if anything would of happened to us we had no way to find us or call for help. Very disturbing.
