Very friendly staff, all of them! They were quick but I didn't feel rushed, and I felt like I was in good hands if I had any problems during the rental. Definitely will be back!

I feel like I was tricked into buying insurance from a third party when I should have just bought it from enterprise directly. It would have been more complicated if ever there was an accident or I had to switch or cancel my reservation. I will just book directly with the company in the future.

Pros:

The ability to buy gas in advance (not just a full tank - or nothing) but approximately what I would use on the trip ( in this case just a half tank) - and at a very close to market price - made the drop off experience really quick and easy!

I did not get the car I ordered. The folks at the pick up location were very nice but said we have no control over what car gets delivered, sorry . The car we got had feet prints on the inside of the front window…the car did not feel clean , it was all scuffed up on the inside… It was not the Hertz Rental I was use to. I was bringing my daughter to college that day had no other choices…
