Upon getting vehicle. Upon starting vehicle, it flashed a message that back tire treading low, needs Maintenace or checked. I asked the gentleman working about it at the exit. He said don't worry about it. 'You should be OK' didn't sound promising. So, I asked the supervisor on duty, he said let's switch your vehicle out. Then, upon turning in the vehicle, the scan person was out to lunch, although 3 able bodies sitting and or standing there said just leave the key in the car and when she gets back from lunch, we will make sure to let her know to scan your vehicle back and email you a receipt. Been over 14 hours since that occurred still no receipt. Concerning that 3 employees can sit and aren't crossed train to scan a vehicle in. Doesn't make sense to me. This is a very sad situation at CVG airport.

Cons:

Cruise control on the 2019 Versa that I rented did not work. The cruise on/off button on the steering wheel was faulty. I rely on cruise control to keep me from speeding when I drive on the interstate freeway. Not having cruise control was a major inconvenience. Agent at counter was not clear as to what I was paying for, vis-a-vis how much gas I needed to put in the tank, before returning the car. If is unlikely I will rent from HERTZ in the future.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

I was supposed to pick up the car by 6pm due to the location closing at 6pm. I called Budget customer service around 4pm to confirm reservation however when I went to pick up the car around 5 pm they told they wouldn t have any cars available until 9 am the next day! I asked them to check with another Budget location nearby but they said they was nothing they could do and that I could address a complaint by calling customer service! I was unable to get another car rental at the last minute and missed an important meeting. This is simply unacceptable.

Very friendly staff. Was very professional and tries to make the customer feel comfortable.

Did not have available full size cars that I had requested. I was willing to go to nearest airport for full size car, but it would be much more expensive because of airport taxes. It was only five minutes away, but that much more? Ridiculous!

Pros:

Nothing. The staff treated me poorly and with disrespect. I would NEVER rent from the again.

Cons:

I reserved a rental car and when I went in to get it I was told I couldn't rent it because I didn't have a credit card. Then I was told if I used my debit card (which I use for everything) I would need a copy of a utility bill. I then logged onto my account and produced a utility bill in my name and was then told it wasn't good enough, the bill had to have a zero balance. The bill wasn't due yet so I hadn't paid it. I have never been treated so poorly. I am convinced Enterprise does NOT want to honor these cheaper/bargain rentals so in turn they come up with any excuse in the book not to honor them. Shame on Enterprise for how they treat people.
