The staff at the Enterprise location in Camp Hill were very friendly and professional. The van was ready when I arrived, the rental agent was very thorough in his walk around during the checkout process. The check in was fast and efficient. I would definitely rent from them again when the need arises.

Cons:

The cancelation could have been much easier. I will not rent online again. There were too many fingers in the reservation which in turn made the return way more complicated than it should've been.

Pros:

The staff was excellent

Cons:

The condition of the vans should be better. The van hired by me just could not speed up to the moving traffic. I had to force speed it. Yet was not enough.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

Kayak reservation said pickup was at 12 noon. When I got to Enterprise on the pike, they closed AT noon. I could not rent, and had to ask for lifts, and all of my plans went out the window. I will not be using Kayak again.

The car which was a Dodge Charger GT, Was clean, except for the windows , I cleaned the outside, But all the interior glass was dirty.... I mean VERY dirty.. Possibly the previous renter was a smoker,, Or it was a product of Vinyl, oxydation from the Black vinyl, and cloth interior. The car was VERY fast accellarating, Had Great brakes, and delivered decent fuel mileage. NO OWNERS MANUEL ??? Finding operating procedures, and control functions, was a problem.. Tom
