Pickup very slow due to waiting for car to be ready in Bangor, but great car and speedy dropoff in Boston.
10.0 ExcellentSep 15 2021
I thought the car we were getting was to be a small SUV. The Mazda we got was not a small SUV...at least it didn't sit as high as my CRV at home. But it was a last minute rental and with my experience in Portland, I was very pleased with what was available in Bangor.

We loved the Nissan SUV that we were given. Might even buy one ourselves :). The pickup was a couple of hours too early, but that was an easy adjustment for the salesperson. Loved the good deal from KAYAK. Saved about $350 total for one week!I honestly don't like the hard sell that car rental companies often do and Alamo was no exception. She tried to sell me the full tank of gas, insurance that would have duplicated what we already had, told us about a toll booth gadget, but did not inform us there would be high charges if we used it $3.95/day we later found out. I would love it if ONE car company was truly honest and told us "You really don't need this, but we offer it"

Fast pick up, cool carBetter instructions on drop off location. Regular entrance was closed due to construction and no signs posted to indicate car rental returns
9.2 ExcellentNov 18 2019
The way they do the gas is confusing. They make you guess up front how much gas you're going to use. Why not just give you a full tank and have you pay at market price for the amount you use?

The truck was clean and neatIn comparison to other rental companies like Avis and Budget, their rental system and computer systems seem far outdated. Would go with my usual choice of budget if renting again.

Our flight was changed and we got to the airport early, our vehicle wasn't available but they gave us another one and enjoyed getting to use a hybrid. Thanks.
1.9 HorribleAug 9 2021
Our first car smelled like pot. They were generally accommodating in letting us swap out for a new car. But the second car smelled like cigarettes. I agreed to pay Budget in return for a clean, safe, rental car. They didn't really hold up their end of the bargain but I still had to uphold mine.

Rented car for one day for a trip between airports. Extremely expensive price per day and received the car in terrible condition. The car had not been cleaned: cigarettes, many wrappers (including one from a container of alcohol), and napkins were left in the car. The car smelled strongly of smoke, too. It is disappointing to spend a high daily rate on a rental car and for it to be handed over in a (very) dirty condition, especially mid-pandemic. Additionally, when I rented the car I selected a compact car with room for two bags. One standard size and one carry-on size bag did not fit in the trunk.

The staff was great and the car was clean.Lots of damage to the car and nobody did a walk around or told me about it. I returned the car a day early and still was charged the full booking amount.
10.0 ExcellentNov 25 2020
Staff was excellent and very friendly. Wish I had paid more attention as to where the car was located. Had to walk around the lot "beeping" the car to find it.No instructions on how to use keyless car. Card or manual in glove box would be helpful. 1. Step on brake to start car while pushing start/stop button. 2. How to open the gas tank and where it's located. 3. Toll E Z Pass use. 4. How to open rear door on SUV. Not all of us have these features in our cars. And no visual indicators for this inside car. It was trial and error finding skills. Called my sister who knew how to open gas tank, I would have never found it!. Both SUV's I rented were a little different with these things. But both were very comfortable and made for a great drive.

Easy to pick up and drop off. Nice car.We paid for EZ pass for tolls but the car was not equipped for it.

The Bangor Enterprise was closed at 3- our flight was delayed so we had no car. Ended up forfeiting our planned hotel so we could stay overnight and pick up car tickets lathe next day. Every other rental co was open. Everything else was fine and they did adjust our rate. Check the hours if operations

Enterprise closes at 6pm. There are no details about this on the confirmation email. I also called ahead to tell them that our flight was delayed and they gave no warning. Very poor service.

The Enterprise in Bangor is not at the airport. When we arrived at 6pm (for our 6pm pickup) and called for the shuttle we were told that Enterprise was closed. We lost a night of our vacation.

The call center rep was cluelessThere was not a car available at the airport. So the call center representative said there was a car available in the city I was in. I did not think you had a office there. So, I asked him if he was sure twice. He said yes. I walked to the street he gave me. There was not a office. I checked the reservation. The office was 15 miles away in another city. i took a taxi. It was closed. I called your call center They were rude and did not understand why i was upset.

ChaosNew carHad rented an intermediate level car for fuel efficiency for the long one way drive. After waiting 30+ minutes for the rental shuttle to come to airport, we were taken to a dirty building that was chaotic. They didn’t have enough rentals so it was either take the inefficient SUV or wait even longer for another return. The SUV was dirty as well. The return location at Trenton airport lacks signs on the road telling you which lot to drop it off in as well as the prerecorded message when you call the location doesn’t help.

We rented a car at the Bangor Airport and the rental lot was right across the street from the airport...so not having to worry about a shuttle was a bonus. The car was clean, and very fuel efficient! I will rent from Avis again!

We just spent a month in Maine and rented a car from Avis at Bangor airport. We made reservations via an online travel site and received confirmation for a car 7/31 til 9/2. When we checked the car out at airport the clerk claimed we requested the car until 8/31. Clerk said manager would call me the next day; no call came. When I called Avis 800 I was told they only rented cars for no more than one month and they could not extend the rental until 9/2. So, I had to drive to airport and turn the car in on 8/31. Fortunately a friend came to my rescue for the next 2 days. In addition I don’t think the car was ‘premium’ and the speedometer etc was in metric system so I had to learn to convert kilometers to miles. Not too bad.
1.9 HorribleSep 1 2021
My flight was cancelled by airlines and rescheduled a day later. Avis did not offer to honor my rental car arrangements with pickup 24 hrs later. Instead insisted I start over with new reservation with less discount available. More money to Avis!

When you walk out of office at Bangnor airport the Avid cars are marked to the right but some have signs arefacing right and not left so you don’t see some cars. When we reached, it was raining and i had to go back inside and ask again where our rental car was parked. They were not too helpful explaining it. I was soaked. Not a good experience.

The gas tank could have been filled rather than half empty and the license tans could have been legal. They expired two months back and I worried about being stopped the whole time for expired plates.

2.0 MediocreJul 31 2018
TerribleThey wouldn’t let me have the car bc my card I’d prepaid in full with was a MasterCard debit card (instead of a credit card), & also bc my return flight location didn’t match the location I was dropping off the rental car. The man a the counter said he couldn’t refund me, but gave me a 1-800 number to call instead. I spent about an hour on the phone during my vacation trying to get refunded. One time I was on hold for 20 minutes and the lady accidentally disconnected our phone call, so I had to call & go through the entire process again.A rental car company two counters over was more than happy to rent to me with my debit card & return flight that didn’t match the car drop off, with a price considerably less than Avis’s. I will never rent from Avis again.

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 Ellsworth 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 Ellsworth.

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 Ellsworth car rental.
