Pros:

Employee at the exit was excellent. He helped me remove the lights on the dash, adjust my seat, & set my bluetooth.

Cons:

Where to start? I picked up the car late in the rain and there was so much water around the vehicle that I couldn't check it out for dents. Emergency road service that I needed the next day was non-existent, even after an hour on hold. This crucial problem with key was never resolved. In a separate issue, tire pressure was low after a few days.

The pick up experience was horrible. Employees at the counter were non professional and rude. Car wasn’t clean.

4.0 Mediocre

May 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

The service is so slow that they only have one person working at a counter when there are three rental agencies. The line was very long, and they packed all of us in together, so they didn't care about social distancing or anything. It took forever to give us a car which Ford Focus and Chevy spark are not similar

Cons:

Had to reschedule my flight but Thrifty wouldn't let me reschedule the car rental. I knew it was non-refundable but I didn't want a refund, I just wanted to push it back a few weeks. Total waste of $150, I'll never use Thrifty again.

Pros:

The car was clean and the pick up and drop off process easy

Cons:

I don’t understand why Enterprise won’t let you use a debit card unless you have a booked flight. How does it make sense that a credit card is better than a debit card? I did not have a credit card on me and had to book a flight on the spot just to be able to get my rental

Apr 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Willingness to help me

Cons:

When I arrived, they informed me that they didn't have any cars. I said I made a reservation and asked why no one called me to tell me that. After explaining that I needed the one way rental to make a flight in Baltimore, they allowed me to take a car that was in waiting to get an oil change. I ended up with an SUV when my reservation was for an economy so there was a sliver lining. Just a lot of unnecessary stress during pickup. I understand them getting cars was out of their control but I would have appreciated a courtesy call that morning so I could have made other arrangements.

Pros:

Car comfort was good with good features.

Cons:

Car was not thoughourily cleaned inside. Some misc wrappers,trash and someone's iPad case was left in my car rental. My biggest beaf with all national rental in Dulles is their car wash leave the car looking unclean. Either it uses way too much soap or the rinse doesn't work. must say this my first tainted experience with national.
