2.0 MediocreJul 18 2020
Pros: Nothing actually!Cons: The prices were ridiculous, the van was dirty, kept warning it needed an oil change, reaked of CIGARETTES and was almost unbearable to drive from Winston-Salem to Charlotte with my mother in law in kids so we could get to the airport all together! Never again will I rent from y’all AND I will be contacting corporate office about my experience as well.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2020
Pros: The customer service line was fine and was able to answer my questions, however my requirements for rental were not clearly pointed out. I reserved a car for the next day but the pick up location I was referred to was an airport which wouldn't allow me to rent with a debit card without a flight reservation. Just too much red tape. Went to Avis and rented a car within 30 minutes.Cons: Just went to Avis from the start; which is what I'll be doing in the future.
2.0 MediocreJul 1 2019
Pros: The staff was kindCons: I was given a vehicle held together by duct tape. Literally. Duct tape.
2.8 MediocreApr 24 2019
Cons: Rent a wreck cars came to mind car appearance was best up scratched up ran loud door runner falling off and radio shot. They did not have much to choose from. Over price and surprise extra charge at counter People were nice but product thumbs down.
6.8 GoodApr 8 2019
Cons: No cruise control.
2.0 MediocreMar 12 2019
Cons: Car was not available flat tire I missed the wedding parked car. They would not give me a refund. car was dirty. I will not use your website again hiryz does not care. I need a refund. I need to rent from sites whos about customer service.
10.0 ExcellentMar 12 2019
Pros: Yes -- fabulousCons: the car was new and clean -- didnt care for the Versa -- it "drifted" too much on the freewy
9.2 ExcellentMar 6 2019
Cons: This location is tricky to find. It is inside Ian’s Body Shop. The entrance is through the upper level.
4.8 OkayJun 25 2018
No car available with reservationPros: The clerk at pick-up called and arranged a car at a different location, but only after I insisted.Cons: When I arrived at the airport at 1:30pm (driven by a friend), a nice, but very frustrated gentleman informed me that there were no cars available at this location, even though I had reservation for 2pm. I thought it was because I was early, but he told me there were 2 people in line in front of me and 1, also with a reservation, had been waiting since 12:00pm. The clerk called other locations and found out it would be 245-300pm before a car would be available, "possibly." He called the main location and I was driven by my friend to the other location in town to pick up my car. Apparently they were changing the oil in multiple cars and had no one to drive them to the appropriate locations. The car was cleaned but seats were stained. The windshield was dirty and there was no windshield washer fluid in the tank. So after driving through fog, I had to stop to clean the windshield because I couldn't see well. Rental 1-way was double the price of returning to the same location.

5.2 OkayJul 14 2020
Cons: I had to wait for over 20 min just to drop the car off. Very understaffed. They did not have the car I reserved when I arrived. I was given another vehicle and was charged more. The car was not as nice as the one I had reserved.
2.0 MediocreJun 1 2020
Cons: They did not have the car I reserved when we got there. Had to find another car rental company. Wasted my time driving to enterprise then waiting in line then finding out no van was available
10.0 ExcellentMar 16 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly, thoroughly explained everything and patient.
10.0 ExcellentSep 16 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful.
10.0 ExcellentSep 15 2018
Customer service top priority!Pros: Enterprise knows how to treat customers. From pickup to return everyone who helped me was so professional, helpful, and extremely courteous.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 1 2017
Dreat rental experiencePros: This was my first time using Kayak to get a rental car and it was a very easy process. The price was the same when compared to Enterprise Car rental but I had to enter discount codes to get the best price on Enterprise so this saved me the hassle of that extra step. Plus you can purchase 3rd party car rental insurance for less than half the cost from the renter.
10.0 ExcellentSep 3 2016

6.4 GoodJun 17 2019
Pros: Staff was nice. Car was clean. Service was quickCons: The car was not filled full tank which I realized only after I started driving, but I re-filled it full tank before returning. I got cheated (and had to pay more in fuel) because of this. I could not wait to complain while returning since I had a flight to take
10.0 ExcellentJun 3 2019
Pros: All was easy .. could not have been better
8.0 ExcellentFeb 11 2019
Cons: No one to receive car at turn in
6.0 GoodJan 11 2018
I didn't expect..Pros: It got me there with no major issues.Cons: It had been smoked in and it surprised the attendant whose cleaner didn't alert him. It felt like it was a car on the Log Ride at the amusement park so either the alignment was off or this is the scariest designed car ever.
5.6 OkayOct 5 2017
Pros: Short line checked out quickCons: Girl at desk was rolling her eyes and slightly aggressive towards customer on phone.... no customer wants to see that. There was also an issue with a partial refund ( for the gas I put into the vehicle I had to return) for which I was dissapointwd to see her blame the previous employee that rented me the car. I ended up only getting part of a refund I was promised but dude that even bother mentioning as it was all I could handle. It's unfortunate paying less results in less customer care
10.0 ExcellentSep 12 2017
Pros: personnel friendly and helpful. Easy to get to and no waiting for the return.
4.4 OkayJun 30 2017
Cons: Dropping off in NC took 90 minutes! Computer was down, software antiquated, only one employee trying to deal with a bunch of pre-holiday rentals. Won't be using Budget in Winston again.
10.0 ExcellentApr 18 2017
Pros: The customer service.Cons: Everything was ok.
10.0 ExcellentApr 11 2017
Pick up was quick, easy and conveniet.Pros: Excellent vehicle with low mileage. Staff friendly and helpful. Pick up went smooth and I highly recommend this location. We've dealt with them before,very professional.
2.0 MediocreFeb 9 2017
Was unable to rent a car. Absolutely no one couldCons: Being denied a rental for no reason.

6.4 GoodJun 22 2020
Pros: Boston drop off was great and easy thank you.Cons: The staff at the pickup location was rude, made a comment about my inability to figure out the apple carplay when i asked for help, and also insinuated that i was upgraded to a larger car when in fact i got exactly what i reserved, and when i asked about the potential to upgrade i was dismissed. The tires on the car i rented should be inspected, i hydroplaned several times while driving in the rain going at or under the speed limit. Likely will not use Avis again.
10.0 ExcellentOct 19 2018
Pros: customer service was extraordinary.
5.6 OkayMar 28 2018
Car was not clean & smelled like smokePros: Convenient pickup and drop off locationsCons: I think Avis could do better presenting their cars. A quick rinse & vacum goes a long way. The smell however...? Drive three hours in an ash tray:(
6.0 GoodNov 15 2017
MileagePros: Staff was easy to work with and location was convenientCons: Car had almost 40,000 miles on it although it worked okay

10.0 ExcellentOct 10 2017
Pros: Easy drop off and pick up.Cons: None
2.8 MediocreJul 27 2017
Cons: The van I reserved was not available when I went to pick it up. I was overcharged for the vehicle after I dropped it off. Despite filling the tank, I was charged a $32 refueling fee. Took 4 separate conversations with customer service to adjust the charges and it still paid a higher than the rate I was told at the counter, "but there is nothing we can do about the representative giving you false information." The local facility is understaffed and the cooperate support / customer service is pitiful.
6.4 GoodSep 16 2016
Car in poor conditionPros: The car had multiple scratches and small dents. The back seat appears to have a possible cigarette burn.
8.8 ExcellentFeb 10 2016
Car great and clean, little pricey, drop off misinPros: Car was new, clean, great condition Drop off rate not heinousCons: Customer service giving conflicting information via the international telephone hotline. Ended up speaking with at least three different people.
