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.

Oct 7 2016
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.
Cons: I have no big complaints, returning the car was slightly confusing but not really an issue.

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.

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.

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.

Jul 8 2017
Pros: Drop-off at the Boston airport site was excellent. Well organized, quick and the bus shuttle was great!
Cons: When I picked the car up, I thought I was picking it up at the airport, come to find out when I got there, the site I chose was actually in downtown Portland. Had to take an Uber to that site to pick up the car. That was disappointing! It was labeled as (at airport) on the website...that needs to be changed. Otherwise, drop-off in Boston was excellent!

These Guys Rock
Pros: This is my fourth year renting with Enterprise on Marginal Way in Portland, Maine. The staff is always friendly and professional, and the customer service is superb! I've never been disappointed with the car they give me--and we keep it for an entire month each time.
Cons: Loved everything about my experience!

Terrible car
Cons: The automatic transmission needed some serious work. The car wouldn't accelerate very well in the low gears. It would just rev the engine and then jerk into a higher gear.

Sep 5 2017
Cons: We were given a Chevy Impala for our trip in Maine. I should have went back to the counter when I had trouble starting the car. It finally started on the fourth try and we were off. Each time we stopped the car it was an adventure to see if it would start up again. Sometimes it did and others we had to turn the key up to 10 times for the car to start. Once running the car was fine. Got decent mileage with little road noise.
