6.4 GoodJan 30 2020
Pros: nothing reallyCons: I did not like the fact that I specifically rented a convertible and when I checked in there were not any available and the rep was not able to tell me when one would be available. Unexpectedly I had to return the Jeep 2+full days early and was not offered any type of refund or credit, bad business in my opinion.
8.0 ExcellentJan 28 2020

6.0 GoodJun 2 2021
Pros: Did not have to have to take a bus. Car quality. Easy drop off.Cons: The check in process was horribly long - more than an hour. Not enough staff. The person was nice and knowledgeable but needed help. We had to wait longer while she stopped serving people in line so she could prepare preferred customer contracts.
10.0 ExcellentMay 26 2021
Pros: Very helpful friendly staffCons: Nothing really v good
8.0 ExcellentMay 22 2021
Cons: Key West airport is crowded and when we arrived the Dollar rental sign was off. There was a small sign to go to Hertz that I didn't see until most of the crowd had moved out. Then, there was only ONE agent working. Clearly, there should have been more agents there. Thankfully, there was no line when there for drop off.
6.0 GoodApr 29 2021
Pros: Drop off was very difficult. The staff was ok, but I was not informed on the 3rd party website of all the additional fees at pickup..Cons: All around could have been better.. every aspect. But was good value
10.0 ExcellentMar 28 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly but understaffedCons: Have more staff at the Key West airport
4.0 OkayJan 4 2021
Cons: Dollar did note have the car I reserved on lot. They instead gave me a compact SUV and charged me for the full price of the premium convertible I reserved. Since it was booked via Kayak I couldn't get a refund and there were no other options available. Overall, I would not book a car from Dollar again not use a third party website like Kayak.
2.0 MediocreJan 3 2021
Pros: Pick up time was noon. I had to wait until 1:30 to pick up my car.Cons: There is too much to list.
4.4 OkayFeb 10 2020
Pros: Vehicle was in good condition.Cons: The larger vehicle I had reserved was not available when I arrived. It had been sent to Miami (for Superbowl). I had specifically reserved the extra large vehicle to transport groups of people. Had to make extra trips because my reservation was not kept. Also... I left my jacket in the vehicle. Trying to contact lost and found seems near impossible. I pout a description and request in the on-line Lost and Found... but have heard nothing. I'm not sure if the different rental agencies talk to each other... when I arrived they issued the vehicle through Thrifty (not Dollar)... do they get the same request for Lost and Found? -Spencer Wayne (507) 215-1604

2.0 MediocreApr 16 2021
Pros: The customer service ruined my entire experience.Cons: The Hertz representative could have treated me like a human
2.0 MediocreMar 15 2021
Cons: This rental is by far one of the worst experiences of my life. I was standing there waiting for a car for over three hours. Meanwhile the staff was extremely rude, unhelpful and condescending. The manager especially raised her voice yelling at us. Worst experience of my life.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 7 2021
Pros: Staff was not very helpful or friendly. Very bored and most likely did not like her job, both on pick up and drop off.Cons: Include second driver in fees like Avis and other companies. Won't use hertz again because of extra driver fee.
2.0 MediocreJan 25 2021
Pros: I actually never got the car somebody else took it probably bribe the clerk with money underneath the counter and go. This is Key West.

8.0 ExcellentNov 4 2020
Pros: all was as they saidCons: We would like to have extended our rental by 2 hours but they said they'd charge for a full day so we did not extend it.
2.4 MediocreOct 29 2020
Cons: Hertz does not inform their employees that rent the cars about their closed (For ever) locations for drop off. These locations no longer exist. I went to three closed locations before I finally found one that still existed.

2.0 MediocreJun 17 2021
Cons: My reservation was not honored. Arrived at my destination and was told there were no cars available. Ended up being forced to pay more than double the amount to get a car at a different agency. Terrible!
10.0 ExcellentJun 7 2021
Pros: The staff was excellent and the vehicle was exactly what we wanted
2.0 MediocreMay 17 2021
Pros: The staff member told us "we had no hope of getting a car" and to use another agency, therefore we never got our carCons: The staff should have issued a refund for the prepaid rental, but would not
6.0 GoodFeb 28 2021
Pros: Mack was so helpful! He tried to help my reservation when my flights were rerouted and we got in an hour later than expected. He really went above and beyond to try to accommodate the change in plans.Cons: Closing the office prior to the arrival of the last fight is problematic, there were a number of folks stranded without their rental car. This resulted in additional taxi fees from and returning to the airport to pick up the vehicle during the next days business hours. If business hours could be extended, the arrival in Key West and Avis experience would be more enjoyable.
10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2020
Pros: Staff was very easy which with to work and quick for a small airport.
10.0 ExcellentMay 6 2018
Terrible customer serviceCons: Stood in line for an hour and a half to get a car. The only had 2 people working.
4.4 OkayMar 20 2018
never return earlyPros: Car was nice, except had 3rd row of seats that would not go down to make better access for suitcases.Cons: We returned this car early. AVIS would NOT credit us for the unused days, but instead charged for the full amount. This amount came to over $400. When we picked up the car in Key West, we mentioned that we might return it (to Cutler Bay) early. Nothing was said at that time about the full charge or changing our contract. In Cutler Bay, they insisted on charging the full amount. VERY POOR customer service. Will never rent through AVIS again.
8.8 ExcellentDec 27 2017
Don’t forget you VISA insurance, AVIS won’t remind youCons: Sale representative successfully pushed their optional insurance because I forgot I already had one with my VISA credit card, which the sale rep perfectly knew.
4.4 OkayNov 14 2017
Cons: The car, or any other car, was not available at the time of pickup.
10.0 ExcellentAug 8 2017
Flexible drop offPros: We rent this car in Key west and have to drop off at the airport. And we saw a avis store near of our hotel. They let us drop off at this station. A perfect service. We booked the car very cheep by the website kayak.Cons: You dont have to choose so many insurance. The insurance from avis is to expensive than from the alliance.

2.0 MediocreJan 4 2021

2.0 MediocreOct 18 2020
Pros: Nothing. No one was there to assist us with getting our vehicle when we prebooked weeks in advance. After calling corporate, it turns out that front desk people are supposed to stay up to two hours after closing to make sure those who booked could get their car. Yet the security guard told us that the staff LEFT EARLY EVEN THOUGH THEY HAD OUR RESERVATION ON FILE.Cons: Everything. Considering we didn’t get our car due to poor customer service.

Pros: Drop off was easyCons: The car was filthy and rattling. Ripped up seats in the back..... and the desk guy in key west was so rude and non helpful
8.0 ExcellentApr 2 2021
Pros: The drop off was fine!Cons: We had a 10am airport car pickup at Key West International Airport. No cars were available at 9:50am when we arrived. We had to wait until 10:30am for next car coming back to be washed and cleaned. No one asked about Sun Pass. Will have to pay a fortune for each toll we went through without Sun Pass on the car?
2.0 MediocreMar 1 2021
Pros: Nice vehicle.Cons: Arrived at the pickup time. They were closed. Came back the next day to get the vehicle, it wasn't ready. After an hour long wait, the vehicle was presented to me. Clearly it was rushed. Did not have a full tank of gas. There was no walk around to inspect the vehicle. I took off with the vehicle. Already late for my meeting. Upon drop off in Miami, I was informed that there was damage to the vehicle on the passenger side rear door. Since it was a black vehicle and on the passenger side, I did not notice it on pickup. So in Miami I was informed that I will be charged for the damage.
4.0 OkayFeb 26 2021
Pros: Reserved a full size sedan in Key West. Only available was a compact. Had no choice and told it was an upgrade. Could not debate as that was the only car available. I took out collision when reserved with Kayak which also covered 2nd driver. I was told that would not give me coverage and second driver had additional charge. I ended up paying twice the amount I locked in on with my reservation. Very disappointed in Enterprise.
2.0 MediocreNov 11 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Everything
4.0 OkayOct 22 2020
Pros: I first was given a car that I as a female driving 100 plus miles fid not fill safe it. I called and the representative handled it well, however was a very different story when I went to pick up the exchange. they did have a car but refused to exchange it. I told him I wasnt driving the car so to give me options. He said to wait around for an hour and he would have a few. I did, that the whole time not in rep acknowledged I was there or how much time I still had to wait. at about the 1.5 mark he exchanged my key and sent to the parking lot to find the car.Cons: customer care is all the brick and mortar store have to set themselves apart as everything is moving quickly to having items shipped. The service given was unacceptable but helped me to realize that in my own store I could do better. Shame on the company that doesn't take a few risk now and again or absorb the cost the service their clients with excellence. one of the employees at enterprise was lying and it isn't my job to figure out if it was the rep at the location or the rep on the phone. I would like to rely on the integrity of the company and its staff. This is the first time this has happened but it only tajes once to put a stain on an otherwise clean reputation. Now should I rent again I will not have the same trust not confidence as I had before. I am hoping that moving forward I’ll be able to find a car from another agency
8.0 ExcellentAug 10 2020
Pros: Great car and nice counter staff.Cons: The car smelled of cigarette smoke.
5.6 OkayJun 16 2020
Pros: I reserved a pickup truck because I had small trees to transport800 miles. When I got there, no truck! Minivans are a poor substitute. There was never going to be a truck. They know when you get there you’ll take whatever they can give you- too late to do otherwise. Have had similar issues with enterprise. Reserve to a destination then when you pick up they tell you the location is closed, you have to return 90 minutes away from your destination. Know they have no obligation to deliver what you reserve or receive it where you want.
2.0 MediocreFeb 18 2020
Cons: I rented the car that am. And when I showed up they didn’t have a car for me. I had to rent from hertz and pay more money.

2.0 MediocreJan 3 2021
Pros: The car was niceCons: We had a reservation for 9AM to drive from Key West to Miami. The car was not ready for us to drive away until noon!! When we checked in, the attendant said the car would be ready in an hour, but really took three hours. By the time we left there were 150 people in line waiting to check in to pick up their rental. Airplanes continued to arrive throughout the period with people expecting to pick up a car and continue their journey. Airport security was having a fit trying to make people maintain social distance when the airport physically did not contain enough space to allow 150 people in line waiting and people arriving claiming their bags on the baggage carousel to maintain distinace. The entire problem was caused by National, Enterprise, Alamo car rental mismanagement and inability to think outside the box. In fact, I watched two employees show up to work then disappear when having to confront unhappy customers looking for an explanation for why they couldn’t get their car.
