Employees were helpful, if you book through a third party like kayak you may want to call to confirm. My flight technically arrived an hour after they closed but they had someone there. It made me feel better that I called ahead of time to verify this. They told me that the third party insurance that I bought through kayak was not valid so you might want to take this in consideration. I'm not sure that kayak saved any money other than allowing me to book online which I could not do through Enterprises website but if I did it over again I might have just booked through Enterprise themselves.. the local location and not necessarily the general customer service line.

Pros:

Overall I was very happy with this rental. The folks at Enterprise were very friendly and helpful, and they had a car ready for me when I arrived. Drop off was also very quick and easy.

Cons:

I had reserved a Compact car for a long highway drive through the hills of West Virginia and Maryland. They only had a pickup truck, which was nice, but it didn't handle as well as a Compact on the highway and was not very fuel efficient. It made the drive more stressful than it could have been.

Hertz does not give the customer an option for reaching a human being by phone. My drop off location was Saberton WV. The hours posted online were till 5pm (Wed). From noon Wednesday, I had no option to reach a person (customer service) to ask a question regarding drop off. When I called the online 800# and the number on the business card provide, the outgoing recording looped around for extending the rental and provided no option for a live human. I arrived at the drop off at 3:45. The location was locked up with no key drop box option. I left the car with the key in it. I have no way to contact this office, because of the way the phone line works.

Terrible service. Had a car booked online and they called a few hours later to say they had nothing available and would call me as soon as they did. I never heard back from them.

Despite calling ahead to ensure the timing, there was no one at the facility to process my rental when I arrived, and no response on any of the numbers provided at the counter. In the end I had to abandon my plans for car rental and drive my own vehicle.
