When I arrived to pick up my vehicle, I was told that they had no vehicles available it would be at least two days before they had any. They blamed it on a glitch in their computer system and that they had had this problem before. It seems to me that’s a pretty massive problem they should work out, because I created a major disruption in my schedule and my plans, and Enterprise did nothing but say “sorry, try somewhere else.”

The process for both pick-up and drop-off were super quick and easy, despite obvious limitations with covid.They left me in the dark about my refund for my deposit for using a debit card at pick-up. Still unsure if and when I’ll be receiving it back.

The staff there were super friendly and accommodating. The representative I dealt with, Cora, was brand new to the job but handled the whole transaction seamlessly. The return was super easy as well. They even upgraded my vehicle, for no extra charge. I would definitely rent again.

Our flight wasn't until 7:30 p.m. and the car had to be returned at 11 a.m... We called Andrew at the Hartford location and for 4.$ extra we were able to keep the car until 4. They also allowed us to drop the car at a location closer to the airport. The experiecne made our trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you Enterprise. Your new loyal customers,

4.8 OkaySep 29 2019
Decent car and decent drop off experience.Upon pickup in Hartford, the employee was very unwilling to review scratches and damage prior to the trip and there was a lot. Employees were using vulgar raciest language with each other directly in the presence of several customers. Generally, terrible pickup location in an unsafe neighborhood.

Did not pick up car I specifcally explained a Bradley air port area pick up and when I got to Bradley to pick up the car I was told the pick up was in Hartford the rental at the airport cost me $450 dollars more. Very unhappy
9.2 ExcellentAug 7 2018
Good car, clean, well maintained. Friendly, efficient staff.Not enough staff at the Liebert Road site. When I picked the car up there was a thunderstorm coming up, and one poor fellow had to deal with a line of people impatient to get going, another line of people wanting to return, as well as the necessary inspections of outgoing and incoming vehicles. He should never have had to do this alone. That said, he did a great job considering the circumstances.
5.6 OkayOct 11 2017
Not the bestupgrade for 7/dayThe cat urine smell in the car The cost. I booked the car as a vacation package deal and was not expecting the over 400 charge - I was under the impression the car was a "deal" this did not happen. I will not use a Package deal again.

Horrible customer serviceThe advertised priceI was renting through my company and needed the underage fee to be waived. I called customer service before I arrived at the Budget office to apply my company code, they couldn't assist me and referred me to the nearest office. The rep at the office said an underage charge wouldn't be added, went ahead and swiped my card then realized I was being charged double the price. So I decided not to proceed with the rental, but was still charged an absurd qmount of money.

Budget operationnice enough staff albeit aloof. quick and efficient servicerough crowd renting cars. one couple was fighting in the store. the guy working the counter let them be themselves (probably for his own self preservation). hard location to get to

The car itself was fine, and the attendants at the rental facility were very nice. Talking to representatives on Budget's national call center line to try to make modifications to the rental was a nightmare though.The rental facility was in the middle of nowhere. The facility had a toilet and sink but no toilet paper or hand paper towels. Talk about budget.

For some reason I was not in the AVIS system. What I found on Kayak and THOUGHT i booked for approx $700 ended up a standard rental that I had to book at the last moment at the counter for $1297. I have no idea why this Kayak reservation did not go through. I suspect I never received any confirmation other than a mobile text when I booked it. I see the airline ticket and hotel were done around 6/7. Any way I can be credited some of this EXPENSIVE rental?

Very friendly and helpful! My problem is with Priceline. They scheduled this at a downtown location, which after I got off the airplane had no way to get to before closing. System shouldn’t have allowed. I selected BDL airport and couldn’t have known what street the car rental places are. Avis worked with me but airport fees made the care over $100 more. I won’t be ordering from Priceline again. I will order from Avis directly. They are great.See above.

3.6 MediocreOct 7 2020
The convenience and service I received at the time of pick-up and drop-off. Easy and seamless.I have never rented from Avis before but I have rented a car with other companies prior to this experience. I expected the Avis employee to walk with me to the vehicle and inspect the vehicle prior to me leaving with the vehicle. That did not happen. I was handed the keys and told I was all set. I walked to the car and noticed that it was dirty inside, leftover papers in the trunk and wrappers in the back door. About half way through my 750 mile commute I received a maintenance required notification on the dashboard for the rear seatbelts. I didn’t use the rear seat belts at all during my trip. The notification continued to prompt every time I would start the car. Just didn’t make me feel safe that all services/recalls weren’t serviced prior to letting a customer take the vehicle as a rental, especially with my lengthy trip.

A tale of two locationsSo I mistakenly thought I booked the car for the Avis location close to the airport. Took the Avis shuttle from airport to their facility, and when the agreement screen popped up, the price showed as being close to $600!! I showed the clerk my reservation, with the price I agreed to as being $136, and the clerk said “Oh, I see the problem. Your booking is with the downtown Avis location, not the airport location.” So I used a rideshare app to go the 20 minutes to the proper facility, and got the price I was promised. But - are you freaking KIDDING ME? It costs 4 times as much for the same car, with the same company, if you rent it from the airport location instead? price gouging, anyone??? On the plus side, once I was at the proper location, the transaction was very smooth and the clerk very helpful

Charged an extra $250 premium for picking up at airport even though they did not reveal that when I made reservation. Hertz informed me I was supposed to pick up car downtown. But that location was closed on day I arrived so they never should have confirmed the price of the 7 day rental online. But they did.

6.8 GoodNov 15 2020
The staff was friendly and helpful.The car was given to me in a parking garage, where it was a little dark so I didn’t see a few imperfections on the vehicle, but I didn’t have a problem when returning the vehicle. The staff didn’t record the gas correctly, so they thought I owed a balance when returning the vehicle at a half tank. Overall it worked out fine.

I’ve rented a lot of cars and used nearly all of Thrifty’s competitors. I honestly can not think of anything that needs to be improved. It was the smoothest, friendliest, pick up and drop off we’ve encountered.

The staff did their best.System kept giving an error message about an age restriction that wasn’t accurate. Car was not full size. Took over an hour to complete rental check in.

Hartford (downtown) to Bradley AirportCar was as expected. Courtesy drop off to the airport from the car return location was very nice—a step above waiting for a shuttle.Pick up took a while, I think the car wasn’t ready so I had to wait for an extra 15 min. Entrance to the hertz location at Bradley airport was hard to fond (on a side street but there was no sign for guidance).
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2018
Worst car rental experienceI reserved a full size rental and on the day I was scheduled to pick up the vehicle I called the Hertz facility to assure it was ready and they informed me they didn’t had a car available for me. I called the 1-800 hertz number and they sent me to another location, that location also did not have a full size car available. I then again called Hertz and they sent me to a third location and that facility also didn’t have a car for me. The last two facilities weren’t a actually Hertz rental places, they were side dealerships with a small Hertz sign with very little cars.I was suggested to call different hertz facilities directly for better luck. 22 calls later and 5 hours of trying to get a car that I reserved I ended up with no car at all. And I was still charged the auto protection plan in which I had to call for reimbursedment. I was beyond disappointed and I will never do business with Hertz again.
