Great price
Pros: We found a great price for a car rental from Portland, Maine to Manchester, NH. We also LOVED our Elantra - great gas mileage, and the trunk fit all four of our suitcases.

A lot of hidden fees
Pros: The car itself was fine.
Cons: There were a lot of hidden fees. My rental was supposed to cost $165 for 8 days yet when I returned it two days early it actually cost me $220 and that was after they tried to charge me $340 dollars. I've rented cars several times and always was happy with my experience, this is the first time I felt mislead. This also happens to be the first time I went through Alamo and KAYAK.

4.8 Okay
Nov 2 2016
Cons: I feel like bait and switch scam.. The car costs $110 more than what my booking said it would cost (Conf # 1226751128 at $309). Tried giving me a car in the class I ordered, but agent then said that car neeeded maintenance and he would give me a free upgrade. That's when things began to derailed. Agent stated I made reservatoins with their downtown office; even though, I requested aiport (PWM) pickup when making the reservation. The address was 1 Marginal Way on the confirmation. I have no idea where that address is - airport or city? Agent told me I would have to pay the difference ($110) which I agreed to pay as I didn't have time to argue with the agent. I still feel I was taken advantage of and will probably carefully consider before making another Enterprise reservation thru Kayak.

Great service!
Pros: They were very personable and matched my price from another company. The car was exactly what we needed and it was in excellent condition. I had never driven an Infinity before, so that was another plus. They introduced us to the type of people we continued to meet in Maine: very friendly and courteous. Would use them again without question.
Cons: I cannot think of anything that was a problem.

Pros: Car was nice for our trip. Did almost 1000 miles on car and no issues with it mechanically. Gas mileage was great.\ Agent on turnin took my word for low fuel in car, not full tank as paperwork showed.
Cons: The agent did not explain the toll road guizmo behind the rear view mirror. Paid first time cash as didn't know had a ez pass, like fast pass in California. Gas mileage was not correct on form when picked up car.

Experience renting from the lowest price bracket
Pros: Affordable, flexible, and available when I needed it. If I needed a car for a couple days, I'd do exactly the same thing again.

Manager's Special
Pros: First, the vehicle - a Kia Sportage AWD, super-nice that, somehow, ended up with 440 miles in a 4-day visit, 10.9 gallons to fill? ECO mode is something else on this. I thought I'd hired a compact, but, that was the special, at the price quoted on KAYAK for the compact, so I was pretty delighted by that. Actually a bit stupefied for a moment when he stated it was the same price; I had to ask the agent to clarify, and, still in disbelief, asked what the upgrade fee was yet a third time. I think it pleased him a little to smile so broadly and hand over the keys. We made several short trips around the Portland area and down to NH, just a great ride, handled well enough on the swoopy back roads between Sebago and Exeter, and the great visibility was a joy while we enjoyed the sights along the way. Check-in was well-designed, perhaps the best I've ever seen. Greenville/Spartanburg (S.C., if you didn't know) has a similar setup and I'd thought it clever there. Under a 5-minute walk from baggage claim to the rental service counter. After a brief wait, like 15 minutes, we were getting checked in and shortly, off on our trip! We arrived about noon, and the queue was not terrible at all. I did not know that Hertz and Dollar were a joint outfit, so, you might go a while between "Dollar" signs, but Hertz had signs up every ten yards or so, follow the yellow brick road, it works out. Likewise, navigating the parking garage to your hire.
Cons: Well, no wait would be better I suppose, not that I'm complaining, 'cause I'm not. The parking garage is awfully dark, don't you think? That's about it, I really couldn't be happier

Jeep Pioneer Needed Maintenance

Experience thus far . . .
Pros: Drop off was very easy and attendant was efficient and friendly.
Cons: Pick up took way too long. Close to 1/2 hour!! Needed assistance from a 2 attendant before we could move things along. Second attendant was courteous but not necessarily friendly. EZ pass option is great idea but it would be helpful to know what if any charges other then tolls are associated with its use.
6.0 Okay
Jan 19 2016
Pros: The car was great but they would not let my spouse drive for free. I asked several questions about this and they told me that wasn't available in Maine. The next day we realized it was a benefit of our AAA insurance and called to have him added as a driver. The agent told us we could not do tha without opening our contract, which would mean we would need to pay the current price for the car rental. Not good customer service, especially when the contract stated we had AAA insurance.

Good human customer service, bad robots
Pros: The people I dealt with in Portland and Philadelphia were very nice and professional and helpful. Got done what I needed done efficiently and without big issues.
Cons: The customer service hotline over the phone was a terrible 1984 / Brazil - esque "voice-mail hell" scenario. I was put into a Robot Loop of Uselessness that I could not escape from.

Always Quick and Courteous
Pros: I always prefer to use Hertz because they aren't aggressive with trying to upsell and the pickup process is quick and painless. Also, at the destination airport, one of their employees gave us curbside service to the airport after drop-off since we had a toddler and car seat with us.
Cons: There's nothing about my rental experience that was unpleasant.

pick up
Pros: Had problems. Agent not very friendly. Couldn't give us directions. Gave us a little compact car instead of intermediate. We spent extra time complaining but then they exchanged car.
Cons: Car we finally got was right size which we should have been given to begin with.

Nov 11 2016
Pros: The agent and her support were very responsive and helpful. I had an issue with the seats in the minivan and efforts were immediately made to find a model more suitable to my needs.
Cons: The lower rating for pickup and drop off was the result of having to wait for pickup due to understaffing at the desk at time of pickup. I also would have liked a box for dropping off keys, at the time of my return, so that I could have left immediately.
