4.8 OkayAug 23 2020
Cons: pick up and drop off was very difficult very hard to find where we were supposed to go and staff was not helpful and could not be bothered to say two words to us. we also had a tail light go out halfway through our trip which did not make us feel very safe that the vehicle was checked over before we left.

3.6 MediocreJul 14 2020
Cons: Pick up the car and it was dirty i have to wash it and clean it myself and the worst part is I returned the car 3 days early and returned $2.43 cents to my card. Thank you Budget you are the worst rental cars i’ve ever imagined.
4.4 OkayJul 21 2019
Pros: Pickup and drop off Was SmoothCons: The car had a strong cigarette and weed smell. Not acceptable at all but we didn’t realize until we turned the air conditioning on
9.6 ExcellentJul 15 2019

8.8 ExcellentJun 27 2019
Pros: Friendly staff, convenient location and easy pick up and drop off.Cons: The interior of the car could have bee cleaner.
6.4 GoodOct 30 2018
Quick ProcessPros: i like the fact that the cars are new and the process was quick, i walk in the door left with car in about 10 minutes.Cons: what i didnt like was the age restriction was 25 to rent a car, im 24 so i was 1 year under so they charged me a extra $200 for the week which doesnt make any sense, i. was not happy about that, il just start renting again when im 25 which
2.0 MediocreAug 11 2018
Cons: They tried to overcharge me and violate the agreement. Very dishonest.
7.2 GoodJul 26 2018
Providence office was a little unorganizedPros: We got a great car but it wasn't completely clean. The car worked great for our trip - held tons of stuff/luggage/people so it was perfect. Ran well and got us from point A to point B!Cons: The Providence office on Eddy was disorganized and understaffed but they were nice/helpful despite the long wait.
2.0 MediocreJun 29 2018
Went 3 times, next cars availablePros: NothingCons: Went to the rental store 3 times (starting with the reserved time) and each time they didn’t have the car and said “it was on the way”. I waited 45 minutes each the first two times and gave up on the third. They also had no internet or phone service so their computers were down and the staff were using their personal cell phones to make reservations and call their suppliers.
8.0 ExcellentJun 14 2018
Pros: easy check in and pick up. Employees were helpful and professionalCons: the car was not in good condition i.e. when on the freeway, the car would shake.

1.9 HorribleJul 24 2021
10.0 ExcellentSep 29 2020
Pros: Car was greatCons: There was no way to get employees attention inside the building. I had no way of knowing if they saw me and someone was coming to help or not.
2.4 MediocreJan 28 2020
Pros: Staff friendly, but incompetent. Lots of opportunity for training here.Cons: 1) Have the vehicle ready for pickup at the appropriate time. Ours was dirty, and had less than 1/4 tank of gas. 2) Improve team communication. We reserved an SUV because we were 5 traveling together, and I communicated this to the Enterprise staff twice. They still got it wrong. I told them early on the morning of our rental when I called (per their request) to confirm the rental. I told them again when we called for pickup at 3:45 pm. They showed up in a sedan that held 4 (including their driver), so half of our party had to wait at the train station for another pickup. 3) VERY long delay at pickup due to issues #1 and #2. They offered to put gas in the car, and we agreed, thinking that the amount of gas in the car at that time wouldn't even get us out of town. But their gas run took 40+ minutes. Did they go all the way to the airport for it? As a result, instead of slipping out of town before rush hour, we had to drive into the heart of it. They should have warned us of the distance they had to travel for the gas, and the amount of time it would take. 4) No ice scraper in a vehicle, in the winter, in New England. Had to ask for that too.
9.6 ExcellentJul 22 2019
Cons: Car we wanted was not available when we went to pick up, but they gave us a larger vehicle and cut the price so it worked out even better.
2.0 MediocreAug 4 2018
TerriblePros: NothingCons: We ordered online. Got the confirmation and then once we were in the Uber on the way to the pick up, Enterprise called to tell us they had no cars available. No care and out $25 for the Uber ride. I’ll never rent from Enterprise.
5.2 OkayJul 21 2018
Pickup and especially drop off took too longPros: Comfort of upgrade. Pleasant demeanor of site manager. Location.Cons: Took forever to drop off. Car workings not adequately explained. Unavailability of my preferred vehicle size not forewarned. Hard sell of unnecessary coverage.
2.0 MediocreJul 11 2018
Reservation NightmareCons: Booked a res at store near me agent said it was for another location, but was 2nd time that week it happened. Short on time we tried a different location, after confirming this other location had cars avail she transferred my res and I drove 30 mins out of my way. Sat in traffic got to other location only to find they had NO rentals avail. I booked this res a week prior. Store mgr said he'd find me a car, offered an upgrade (reserved full size). I was given a compact sport suv. This was, after sitting in their store for another 30 mins. Then after returning the car I was charged $44.00 more for returning 2 hours late due to traffic (I called ahead).
10.0 ExcellentMay 28 2018
Pros: The staff were friendly, upgraded the car and waivered part of the deposit fee so we were able to have more spending money on our trip.Cons: I liked everything about this service and would use it again to go on a road trip.
7.2 GoodMay 8 2018
Tires need replacing and inside car still had crumbs etc on consolePros: Great car and gas milageCons: Expensive insurance, cleanliness, tires looked like they needed replacing
2.0 MediocreNov 14 2017
Enterprise rental office was closed.Cons: Reservation was online and I had Scheduled pick up at 12pm. The reservation confirmation letter should have NOT allowed that pick up time since it was Close by noon. I lost time and money paying taxi fare to the closed enterprise office, an additional taxi fare to return to the airport and a much higher costs for Enterprise car rental at the airport, which unfortunately I was trying to avoid since I was traveling in a tight budget.

4.0 OkayJan 11 2021
Cons: Didn't allow me to drop car off at given time. Charged me more money. Ridiculous.
7.6 GoodJul 2 2020
Pros: The agent who assisted me in Warwick was helpful.Cons: The signage to locate the building/office was awful. No one was available to report a small scratch on the passenger door when I picked up the vehicle. I took a photo of the scratch. Also, signage for drop off was not good. Just a box to turn the key. No agent present to whom I could report the scratch. Otherwise I was satisfied with the rental situation.
2.4 MediocreDec 21 2019
Cons: When I call 2 days for my reservation, I ask !! Can I pay whit my DEBIT card ? The answer was yes.!! But when I arrive to pick up, they rejected me .. because of that .... I lose my day and time and almost lose my trip to my destination.... don’t like this polices ...
8.4 ExcellentDec 11 2019
Pros: Staff at both ends were very nice, courteous, helpful, and expedient.Cons: The Chevy Malibu was a little small, so a larger vehicle would have been better.
9.2 ExcellentOct 25 2019
Pros: Car and priceCons: The drop off in Punta Gorda
10.0 ExcellentAug 13 2019
Cons: The rental car was terrible. Could have done without a Chevy Malibu. Other than that everything went well
5.2 OkayAug 8 2019
Pros: Friendly, but absolutely ridiculous that one person is supposed to run the entire branch office, up to and including cleaning the cars. Worst - THERE WERE NO CARS AVAILABLE, even though at 10:30 a.m. there were three people sitting there with 9am reservations.Cons: Hertz could have had CARS AVAILABLE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO RESERVED THEM and prepaid, instead of making us wait for 1 1/2 to 2 hours for a car. I'm never using Hertz again.
3.2 MediocreJul 16 2019
Pros: The pick-up was easy and car was somewhat cleanCons: The drop off arrangements were a scam. Had to pay a 3rd party to store the car overnight in the same garage that it ended up in.
7.2 GoodJun 9 2019
Pros: drop off was easy.Cons: I ended up paying way more than I was told.

7.2 GoodOct 10 2016
Pros: Got to pick which car I wanted.Cons: Employee tried to upsell me with a better car for onlyv$19 more. Car rental return place should be specified by national - not their fault, but it was nearly impossible to find. Luckily there was a gas station open at 2 AM that I could ask where to return a rental car too. It was not at all clearly marked at the airport.

2.0 MediocreApr 6 2021
Pros: Nothing the lady at the counter would not rent the car to me and would not give me a reason why I will never try to use this company againCons: Get better employees
2.0 MediocreSep 21 2019
Cons: I went to pick up the car and was told that I needed a major credit card. I didn’t have one and they said I would need to leave a deposit (which was fine) and they would run my credit. My credit score wasn’t good enough apparently and that was basically the end of the transaction. Stranded.
2.0 MediocreMay 21 2019
Pros: Staff was slightly apologetic about not having my requested vehicle.Cons: I showed up on the day of pickup, and they didn't have my car?! All they had was mini-vans, when I had reserved a compact/mid-size. I ended up having to get a last minute rental from another company.
2.0 MediocreSep 8 2018
AVIS OWES ME MONEYCons: I returned the car one full day earlier than expected and I was still charged for the full three days (even though I had only had the car rented for two). I was told I'd get a call about my refund and, to date, haven't heard from Avis -- despite calling them countless times. Never again.
8.0 ExcellentAug 22 2017
Didn't get Car Reserved but......Pros: Honored rental price/cost from Kayak.....got me in Auto that was satisfactory.Cons: Reservation was cancelled without my notification......Avis couldn't honor Kayak price for SUV/large rental. I was quite upset!
4.0 OkayAug 12 2017
Inconvenient and UnclearPros: The car itself was fine, although the back seat needed cleaning. And it was ready at the arranged time.Cons: The agency did not provide any kind of map, and this was the first time I've experienced that in many years with many car rentals from other companies. The local person was not familiar with local roads to help me get started on the trip. He was not as helpful or polite as I'd expect. Another issue is that I was headed to Massachusetts and planned to take the toll road, and the agent in Rhode Island did not know - or at least did not tell me - of the major change in toll collection there. Since it is not possible to pay cash on I 90, I will be receiving a bill for those tolls, plus additions from Avis and possibly fines. When I dropped the car off in Chicago, the office desk had handouts explaining their e-toll fees. But nothing of the sort was offered in RI where it would have actually helped. I will not rent from Avis again, or Budget, which seems to have merged with it.
3.6 MediocreJul 11 2017
Pros: That the place I went to was able to accommodate me with a standard car. When I returned the car to the airport the lady at the desk was able to help me with my issues at no extra charge.Cons: When I arrived I was told that my rental was downtown and so took an hour long bus ride there. When the office opened I was told that my reservation had been cancelled and that they did not have the vehicle type (SUV) that I had rented. The person accommodated me, but then called me on the final day and was telling me if I didn't get the car back I would be charged extra. He then told me he was not going to be able to honor me returning the vehicle to airport as I was originally told I could.
2.0 MediocreJun 4 2017
Avoid this companyCons: They have canceled my reservation without my concent.
2.8 MediocreApr 26 2016
Cons: Scott, the man at the desk, overcharged me and when I pointed out that it was a 2 day rental, not 3, he absolutely refused to fix the problem. He was horrible, very rude, making me wrong. I had my service dog with me & he yelled at me about her. The man should not be around customers.
