Pros:

My son lives in Ridgecrest, two hours away. Traveling by yourself is stressful enough, so I like the convenience that Enterprise is right in the terminal. As a women driving by myself, it gives me such peace of mind that I will arrive safely. The cars have always been clean, new and ran perfectly. I will continue to use them and Kayak for my travel needs.

Cons:

Nothing

Pros:

They helped out.

Cons:

They never told me to bring a credit card to pay for the rental. I have a debit/ master card and I couldn’t pay for the rental with this card. I had to drive 25 minutes back to may house to get my credit card. This was very inconvenient. All they need to state on the agreement or reservation would be “only credit cards accepted for rentals” “ no debit/ credit cards accepted”. No where did it state this.

Pros:

He offered me a free gas if I agreed to drive a different vehicle class from what i reserved to LAX. Thought it was a great deal.

Cons:

Turns out, he never entered that information into the system or the paperwork. I got charged $35 at LAX for gas in spite of what was promised. At the lAX Avis counter, they told me I had to deal with the Bakersfield AVIS person to get it cleared up. I called, and the Bakersfield AVIS location doesn't pick up, and the call goes to AVIS national reservation. After holding for 10 minutes, reservation says I have to talk to Customer Service. After waiting another 10 minutes, customer service says I have to contact that same Bakersfield location to have them verify what i said. When I said that the number keeps redirecting me to AVIS national, the customer service agent hung up on me.

great price, friendly staff. the price was very affordable for a one way rental from Bakersfield to LAX. Car was clean and fresh on the inside.

Cons:

limited amount of cars. they were out of cars when we showed up 2 hours before our scheduled pick up time. Had to come back during our scheduled pick up time and the car was ready. Not their fault but would have been nice if there were a few extra cars to accommodat changing schedules of customers.

Pros:

Bad service most unreliable in honoring reservations. On the evening of 5/22/2021 at approximately 1 pm , I was informed, the vehicle would not be available for pick up on 5/22/2021 @ 8 pm , instead I could pick it up on the following day @ 7 am. My reservation was for a pick up truck, they were offering me a mid sized SUV which would not serve my purpose. It caused me delay and inconvenience and additional expenses renting from another company for a pick up truck at short notice.

Cons:

Compensation for dishonor of reservation and additional expenses

Sep 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car it self was comfortable (lowered score because the inside was dirty) for a smaller car and got great gas mileage.

Cons:

1. Fine print regarding company rules for National Car rental would not download for us to read before we went to pick up car, so we did not expect the $100 hold on a major credit card/not debit, customer service at the pick up location was to put it mildly unhelpful, sarcastic, smug, and didn't know when to stop repeating himself, even after I put my hand up and said "STOP". "I get what your saying, I would just like you to be empathic to my frustration." At which point he smiles and then finishes repeating his statement to me. 2. Husband gets into car and being the professional he is, found the car to be dirty. Takes it to a car wash so he can be comfortable in it, isn't this something that is suppose to be done before he even gets into the car? 3. While driving the car he discovers there is no windshield wiper fluid, so he can not remove any bugs that may be blocking his vision. Again isn't this supposed to be filled before he gets the car? I sure hope all the other fluids are ok. 4. Then a warning light flashed "Take to dealer immediately!" WAIT WHAT? My husband had been driving it for less than 20 minutes, on his way to a job interview, he can't call and talk with anyone the Bluetooth wont transfer any sound through the speakers, he's in the middle of now ware by now, he can't pull off or turn around, so he call's me to have me call and to find out if he needs to do anything. After being on hold for over 10 minutes I get through to the roadside customer claims office. I tell her I am not in the car, the closet town is about 100 miles away, the above info, and then she proceeds to ask me a few question, "where are you at now?" I'm at home, I'm not in the car, my husband is. "Ok mam, where is the car?" On the highway in the middle of nowhere (does nobody at this company listen when you are talking with them?) "Ok mam ,lets see if I can help you"...ask a few more questions I had already given her the answer to, finally she states she can't help me she needs to talk with my husband since he's the one driving the car....at this point I am dumbfounded, he can't pull off anywhere safe to call you no exits and the Bluetooth isn't working....By this time the light has flashed "maintenance required", so my husband is no longer worried about the engine exploding just irritated as this is poor vehicle maintenance, a pet peeve of his. 5. Returning the car, my husband is delighted to see the same customer service rep as before (I am so making that up), the rep has the same attitude, makes my husband walk back out to the car to write the miles down (unlimited miles, we don't have to do that with Enterprise they'll do it for you), smugly says "I will have my guys do a better job at looking over the car before they go out with customers next time." Uh ok guy you do that but we will not be repeat customers with this company.

Top tips for hiring a car in Bakersfield

  • Though California does feature a fair number of trains, there really is no better way to get around than by private vehicle in the Golden State. Bakersfield is no exception to that; in fact, within the city itself there are only buses available for public transport. So drivers looking to get around town will have long waits in store for them if they don’t have a vehicle on hand.
  • Visitors arriving at Meadows Field Airport looking to rent a car will find the hire car counters in the main terminal’s Arrivals Hall.
  • Bakersfield is close to numerous mountain pass roads and, as beautiful as they are, they can also be a tad narrow and steep at times. Occasionally, drivers will find that there isn’t enough room for both cars to go by each other at the same time. In moments like this, as uncommon as they may be, the vehicle that is facing downhill must yield to the uphill-facing driver and back up (if necessary) to allow the other car to pass.
  • While Bakersfield does not have the most severe rush hour traffic, its relative proximity to the Greater Los Angeles Area can make traffic going in that direction slow down during peak hours. On most weekdays, the morning rush hour typically goes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon it goes from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. One of the main roads to avoid during rush hour is CA-58, as it bisects Bakersfield and often bears the brunt of the daily rush hour traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Bakersfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
