  • Fountain Valley is a small city in Orange County, California.

For instance, you can start your day at the beautiful Huntington Beach, then drive to the Balboa Fun Zone or Newport Beach.

Pros:

Friendly staff and quick service without upselling.

Cons:

The parking lot is not marked well enough given the tight space. Painting on the ground would help determine where to pick up and drop off the cars and where to wait if you're getting dropped off or picked up by someone?

KAYAK

Cons:

My biggest issue and reason I will no longer use kayak or enterprise is the fact that I was in a way robbed. I feel like the Kayak and Enrerprise coordinated their efforts in order to charge me almost double what I signed up for on your site. I was quoted 1 rental price + an optional $9 daily full coverage option. When I picked up the rental I again confirmed that I was signed up through the $9 daily coverage. It should have totaled $27 (3 days at $9) but when I returned the car I was sent home with an invoice that charged me almost double the total rental quote due to a $106 coverage which was about $79 more than I was quoted, and $79 more than I had been told by the Enterprise agent at pickup. The agent made absolutely zero effort to resolve this blatant fraud and again this is the reason that I 1) will never use your services again and 2) the reason that I'm going to make it my duty to spread the word both by mouth and by internet to as many people as possible.

KAYAK

Pros:

Was going on a 3-day cross country road trip for California to Florida when we were upgraded for free frim a subcompact to SUV with no additional cost. The SUV comfort more than made up for the increased gas cost (especially since gas was so cheap through the South compared to CA). The service was fast and courteous on both ends: from pick up in CA to dropoff at Orlando Airport.
