Staff in New Windsor was extremely helpful, polite, and efficient!We had significant problems with the rental vehicle. The sliding doors on the minivan would not lock with the remote. The brakes on the Dodge Caravan were sketchy, and the ride from Eagle Lake down into Ticonderoga in upstate NY was about 7 miles down a steep highway. The rotors are extremely worn, and the minivan squealed all the way down the steep incline while the disc brakes bumped over the rotors. The minivan would not start at the end of the day while we were leaving Fort Ticonderoga. I called the 800 assistance number on the key ring, and THEY WERE NO HELP AT ALL. First they told me they would send someone out to jumpstart the vehicle, but I was worried that it would happen again. (We had a hard time starting it once before.) They suggested that after getting it started, I drive to the nearest Avis rental which was in Plattsburgh and 90 MILES AWAY!!! I told them I did not want to drive 180 miles round trip, so they suggested that I wait for road assistance to arrive and was told that roadside assistance would text me with a time. I waited 45 minutes with no text, and called them back. There was no answer. Fort Ticonderoga was closing, and I needed to leave as the gates were being locked! Roadside assistance did not pick up after that, and I was on hold for 45 minutes. I called the Burlington, VT Avis, and they told me to call Plattsburgh Avis which was extremely helpful. Plattsburgh Avis told me to call roadside assistance and request a two-way tow to exchange out the vehicle. I finally got back to the Avis roadside assistance, and the lady told me it would take 4-6 hours to do a two way tow. I told them that was unacceptable and the Fort was closing, and I needed to get the minivan out of the park. The lady said she would check with management and call me back. The park service was nice enough to stay and be prepared to reopen the gate for roadside Assistance WHICH NEVER CAME!!! The lady NEVER called me back, and I never got a text from anyone about roadside assistance. We finally got the van restarted ourselves. I called Avis roadside assistance again, and was on hold for 90 MINUTES just to tell them not to come, we got it started. That is the worst rental that I have ever had, and the Emergency Roadside Assistance number is a joke. I don’t know what I would have done if we had not gotten it started!!! I will look elsewhere for additional rentals. Tammy Curtis

I didn't realize the insurance I purchased on-line wasn't directly through AVIS so they pressured me into buying their insurance. They didn't clearly explain their "E-Toll" feature and they also charged me to refuel the vehicle even though I returned the car with a full tank of gas.

Chris at Enterprise, Beacon was my pick-up and drop-off connection. Chris has such a positive personality and knowledgeable about his business. He was quick with the transitions, got me in and out. Chris is DEFINITELY an asset to your store.The backseat area could have been cleaner, the backs of the front seats were dirty, looked like children had there feet all over them, aside from that it was perfect.

Highly recommend for NYC rentersOur friends turned us on to renting from Beacon Enterprise and it's hands down the best way to get out of the city, so long you can pack light. The Metro North is an easy ride, Enterprise will pick you up at the station, and you get to joyously bypass alllllll the traffic in the city and get on your way. It's also very affordable and far, FAR friendlier than any other location near the city.

Car hire excess insurance in Beacon

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Beacon car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Beacon.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Beacon car rental.
