Pros:

We were able to pick the van up in Waynesburg - super close to home. It was a good size and ran well. It accommodated all 8 of us and lots of luggage. They gave us a 15 passenger rather than the 12 that we ordered but that worked out well. We removed a few of the seats to make room for our luggage. And it actually worked out to be less money than we expected when we booked. I would definitely book with Enterprise again.

Cons:

No cons at all!

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.

My car was not ready. I was supposed to pick up at noon and they told me it would not be there until 5 PM. I was leaving to go out of town so I had to choose between two vehicles they had on the lot. I reserved a midsize SUV and ended up with a compact SUV. I could not even fit a full-size suitcase in the trunk of the car I had to put one of the backseats down to fit our suitcases. Thank goodnessI only had three people going on the trip or we would not have fit in the car with the seat down. The car was dirty windshield wipers didn’t work well and the lights were terrible in the dark.

When I returned the car the office was closed. Most car rental places don't charge you for dropping off after hours if it is still within the 24 hour period but they charged me an extra day because of it. Will never use them again.

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.
