Awful customer service
Pros: Check in was acceptable, it didn't take long to receive the car, and it had a full tank of gas.
Cons: Upon opening the center console, I found trash from the previous renter that included food remains. when I ran into an issue, and immediately brought it to Avis' attention, they were not willing to help me. The Avis retail stated, "you need to contact corporate," while Corporate stated, "your local representatives should be able to help you with this." The corporate customer service agents were rude and unwilling to help resolve issues to ensure customer satisfaction, or at minimum, customer contentment.

EXCELLENT SERVICE
Pros: I didn't catch the guys name but he did an amazing job getting the best prices for me. This was my first time renting with the company and because of the desk agent it definitely won't be my last.
Cons: I loved the vehicle I rented. I rented through kayak and I made a reservation the morning of and picked up the vehicle at noon. I also loved that I could pick up in Oceanside and drop off in San Diego, there weren't a lot of rental agencies that had a vehicle available for my needs.

Not worth the “savings”
Cons: The customer services were very poor. Having a reservation in hand I was ready to go. I showed up and no vehicles were available. Apparently no ono could get a thing done. Kayak sent me to Avis and Avis sent me to Kayak. After some time they wanted me to drive over hour away to pick up a vehicle. Ended up having to use a different company. Never again

Terrible Hours
Pros: Quick drop off
Cons: Not open at all on Sundays, so I had to leave work on Monday to bring it back. I would never have booked with Enterprise if I had known that was the case. The person who checked me in said it was due to security concerns...but it's a car rental company. How much does a drop box cost?

Very disappointed
Pros: We rented a car online and I was given a confirmation number. The car was supposed to be picked up at 10 a.m. the following day which was Saturday. On Saturday morning at 9a.m. Enterprise called us and told us that they had no cars available. It really messed up the whole the day as we had an important engagement out of town. We will never deal or do business with Enterprise again nor recommend them .
8.4 Excellent
Oct 1 2019
Pros: Even though I was out of their pick up range, they literally went the extra mile and picked me up so I didn't have to leave my car the whole weekend or gather my car up before my trip. Very helpful and professional.
Cons: I requested an Ford Transit and got a Chevy passenger van which was sandy, had loose seats that I had to secure myself, food and stains on the benches, and lacked safety technology I would have expected in the Ford Transit with back up cameras, etc. Not happy with the vehicle switch.

Not Bad, But I Could've Saved Myself Some Time & M
Pros: The customer service agent was polite, but his explanation of the gas policy was confusing. The car was very clean. Due to my ex-wife completely destroying my credit, I will continue to use Hertz or Budget, as opposed to Enterprise & Avis, since you allow me to use a debit card.
Cons: Ultimately MY fault for not knowing, but I was unaware that USAA members received a 25% discount. Seeing that the location that I rented from was right next to a naval base, and I paid WITH a USAA debit card, it would've been nice if the agent brought it to my attention. I'm technically homeless & without a job, so every dollar counts! I was also unaware of the complimentary pick-up service (I overheard the agent talking about it on the phone). That would've been nice to know before my 5 mile walk to your location.

Not good
Pros: There wasn't anything I liked about the experience of dealing with Hertz.
Cons: The service was poor at pick up and drop off. The was delivered dirty, inside and out. The car was delivered with less than a quarter tank of gas. The car had a terrible front end tire shake in the first ten miles. When I called the main number the only concern of the person had was the amount of gas it had if I exchanged it.

Hours for drop off and return are not as reserved!!
Pros: Staff was friendly. Car was clean.
Cons: Whoever allows the website to book cars needs to change things. When I arrived, I had to wait an hour for a car I booked three weeks in advance, because none were returned yet. Also, the website Allowed me to book A return time that was later than the storefront was open SO I HAD TO PAY FOR AN EXTRA DAY and return the car the next morning. The staff was very apologetic about these website glitches! And it wasn't their fault! Communication between the store and website needs to be cleared up! And buyer beware, your reservation is terribly flexible.

Extremely Bad Service
Pros: NOTHING
Cons: These guys RUINED my trip. They wouldn't look at my paperwork. Made me wait over an hour. Then in the end they tell me they gave my reserved car away to someone else!! This wasted over 3hrs of my time by detouring to get this car, and screwed up my entire trip to Arizona. What an unbelievable waste of time. The clerk was rude and inconsiderate. I hated everything about this company and this was my worst rental experience EVER.

Pick up time was running late and Nothing they can do about it.
Pros: Pricing
Cons: Unable to pick up car after a fleight delay. The guy was inside, they were closed and there was nothing they could do for me. Called another Hertz location and the wanted to charge me double... no car rental, outin the street, with my luggage... The guy at Hertz in ocranside blvd in oceanside ca could have had better customer service by going above and beyond to help someone that really needed help.
