The agent at the Cedar Rapids airport (CID) was early for her shift. None of the competitive companies showed up on time. Cheers to Her!!!! The staff at the drop off site near Allen Road in Peoria were friendly, efficient-- great team.Nothing-- all good

I had a big problem in the beginning ... but Sophia (manager in Cedar Rapids) was absolute amazing. She fixed the problem immediately and made me fell much better. I have rented from enterprise many times and she fixed the issue. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her.Make sure you have plenty of staff in the evening to help with customers. Once again Sophia made this a great experience and I hope she gets a pat on the back on how much I appreciate her efforts to fix the problem. She restored my faith in enterprise by going above and beyond the call of duty.

The staff are so helpful and friendly. Our flight was delayed and didn't arrive until 1:30 a.m. I was worried that we wouldn't be able to pick up our car but the staff stayed and were waiting for us when the flight arrived. I so appreciated them staying so late.

We were taking a car one way, plans changed and I was told that if we returned the car to it pick-up location that it would be cheaper. Nope, still over $800.00....never use avis again.

great friendly staff, super easy pick-up and drop off.
4.8 OkayJun 14 2019
The pick up was not easy, I had to move my trip a day later because there weren't any cars available. When I arrived, the lady had the wrong reservation and I think this because the series of issues that i had.I waited so long at pick up for the lady to find and clarify my reservation. The rental car was fine. Then when I returned the car the charge was over $100 more. The I wish I was charged the rate service, she not could not help me!!
8.8 ExcellentSep 1 2017
I liked the car (Buick Regal). It was clean. The staff answered my questions and offered advice about getting to my destination that was beyond the rental experience. There was no waiting and the car was in immediate proximity to the rental desk.

Expensive, older worn vehicleStraightforward pickupWe reserved an SUV but they didn't have it when we went to pick it up and gave us a minivan instead. The minivan was older and not as clean as I have come to expect from most rental locations. They ended up charging us more than what I had expected.

Easy-peasy car rentalSuper fast pick up and very simple drop-off. Car immaculately clean, in great condition, with full tank. Pleasant staff. I was able to make sure I received a car that fit me (I am a small person and not all drivers' seats work for me, even among compact sedans).
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2016

I called to inquire as to what I should do if I could not make it to the scheduled return time for my rental. The woman, who spoke poor English, took it upon herself to charge my card for an additional day without my permission. This caused my acct to be overdrawn. When I tried to explain this she repeatedly told me she did not charge my card however I called my bank and they confirmed the charge. When I called Alamo back they said there was nothing they could do but refund my money which would take 3-7days and they had nothing to say about the overdraft fee. All this for what was just supposed to be an inquiry.

Cross-Country Minivan MoveMoved my fiancé from Iowa to Boston. We got a brand-new Dodge Caravan with fold-flat seats, SiriusXM radio, and the flex-fuel capability which was a major money-saver. Was as smooth as you'd expect of a car under 15k miles.The van had a lot of someone else's trash inside when I picked it up. I spent a half-hour cleaning it out after picking it up. There were chip bags, pop bottles, grease streaks, and a persistient stickiness to the steering wheel that required dish soap to remove. I suppose this is the price paid for a low rate.

I didn't like a thing. Their website allowed me to make a reservation and it was confirmed online but nobody at the physical store would answer the phone to confirm it. So I paid for the Uber to the store and there were three guys not doing anything but couldn't be bothered to answer the phone. Then they told me they didnt have any cars available. I left my name and number and they said they'd call me when a car was available. I never heard back. Trash store with lazy employees.

Super easy pick up and drop off.My vehicle was clearly used by a family before us. When gathering our personal items we found old chips and toys shoved under the seats. Not to big of a deal. But thought it should be mentioned.

NothingMy flight was delayed due to bad weather over the Rockies, and by the time I arrived at my destination their booth was closed. I tried calling them 3 times during the day to alert them and no one answered (kept on hold every single time). They did not attempt to call me, and also did not leave the keys for my pick up. I ended up stranded at the airport trying to find transportation to my hotel. Awful experience.
