10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2019
Pros: LocationCons: Nothing
8.0 ExcellentAug 27 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. Recommended upgrade for our needs and comfort; upgraded with no hassle and minimum waiting time.Cons: Facility itself had a malodorous stale scent. Vehicle was hastily cleaned, as we upgraded last minute, but there remained evidence of previous renters (old spill, half full water bottle and some old food/candy under seat). Allowances made as the vehicle used was not the original one prepped.
5.6 OkayJul 30 2019
Pros: The staff tries butCons: The rental agent while pleasant was disingenuous. She tried to convince me a ford focus was a "premium" car but also offered several small SUV's. The SUV I finally and reluctantly settled on was functional but far from my expectations.
4.0 OkayOct 29 2018
Pros: The price!Cons: The car was dirty, smelled like smoke, & given to us on Empty. There were 50 miles until empty.
10.0 ExcellentApr 21 2018
Pros: i dropped off after hours and it was super easy.
7.6 GoodJun 21 2017
Not what I was looking for, but overall a good vehicle.Pros: I loved the service. The staff at the Enterprise rental facility was by far the best I've experienced. The follow-up was impeccable. The cleanliness of the vehicle was good.Cons: I requested a SUV, but ended up with a minivan. The baggage space was more than I needed, but the comfort was not as nice as the SUVs I had rented in the past.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 21 2017
Excellent customer service & car.Pros: Customer service was fast, professional, helpful & polite. No hidden fees & an effortless transaction. I was very impressed. The car was also perfect & performed well.Cons: Having to give back the car... 2016 Toyota Corolla... great fuel mpg & very smooth to drive.
10.0 ExcellentJan 9 2017
Hassle free, friendly and efficientPros: Folks at the desk waited for me even though flight was late .... near midnight when i got in! They were very cordial and accomadating!
10.0 ExcellentOct 13 2016
great price with an upgradePros: I got a decent price for my rental. I was fine with the compact car and the price was fair. When I went to pick up the car, I was pleasantly surprised with the option to upgrade to a brand new SUV for the same price! The car was wonderful, the service was great. No complaints, no regrets.

5.2 OkayDec 14 2017
Pathfinder Stripper-No options at all @ $76.00 per day!- In Scranton!Pros: It started right away It had reasonable power The brakes worked!Cons: No outside thermometer Just a "Low Temperature Outside" note. That doesn't help much when the difference from 31F to 33F makes a big difference! No backup camera, No remote start. No auto headlights. Just a mediocre car without the frills mist other offer!
10.0 ExcellentOct 12 2017
Excellent!Pros: We were called out of state for the unexpected death of a family member. Needless to say we were under a great deal of stress. We rented a car with pick up and return at the Wilkes-Barre/ Scranton PA airport. The agent taking care of us, named Tia, was extremely competent, friendly and very compassionate. The car suited our needs in every way, all transactions went smoothly but the best experience of all was dealing with Tia. Hertz can be most proud of this associate and we are grateful she made an unpleasant time in our lives much easier. If all Hertz agents are as top notch as Tiaa, hertz will always be our first choice for any future car rental needs.
8.4 ExcellentSep 14 2017
Pros: Great value for the rental.Cons: Our pick up was incredibly stressful. We weren't allowed to use American Express at booking, and had to wait on the phone for over 30 minutes when we picked up the car to change the credit card information. The phone representative was unable to answer our questions and took an unnecessary amount of time to confirm that were were going to pay the amount we originally reserved the car at.
10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2017
Incredible Customer ServicePros: The agent that took care of me was simply amazing. The experience was thorough, quick, accurate and friendly.Cons: It was all perfect

Cons: They told me over the phone it was 150$ deposit but when I got to the counter they said it was 250$ deposit which I did not have. Now I have to wait 10 days to get my 135$ refund for the cost of the rental which I could not rent because I didn’t have the 250$. For deposit. Poor communication. Workers should have been I sync..

8.0 ExcellentAug 12 2019
Pros: Pick up and drop off were very easy.Cons: There was a shuttle from the drop off point to the airport terminal. I found that out by asking another customer. The employee from Budget should have told me that when she came over to ask if I filled the tank and to leave the car running.

8.0 ExcellentJul 17 2017
Nice car, great mileagePros: Price was reasonable for a one-way rental. Car was nice, comfortable on a long trip and got great mileage.Cons: There was no one at the Budget counter a the Wilkes-Barre Airport, and an employee from a different company had to direct me to the Avis counter, which was one counter away. There should have been a sign directing me to Avis, or someone from the Avis counter should have called me over when I was standing at the Budget counter for a few minutes. The log in had to be done twice because the tablet malfunctioned.
