10.0 ExcellentJan 11 2018
Absolutely great experience.We got a brend new Caravan for 10 days trip. Originally it was SUV for $511.00 but we had an offer to change it for a better car without any hesitation or extra pay. Exelent service. Rep by name Carlo even drove me home after I drop off the car at the office. 12 out of 10. Highly recommended.None

Renting a car?I like the location and access.I didn't like the choice of cars made available. Even though I called for a 10:00 pick up, I didn't leave site until 11:00!!. The upsale was a kill joy. You wanted me to upgrade but couldn't handle regular rental. Check out was a nitemare. Salespeople late and not helpful.
7.6 GoodMar 11 2016
Overall value for moneyConvenient place to pick up the car which was small in US terms but perfectly acceptable for me. Cleanliness of the car was OK and the fuel consumption was excellent. So no complaintsThe pick up process is always longer and more complex than I would like - even though it was a quiet Saturday morning it still took over half an hour before I finally drove the car away. All car hire places are like this but it was better than the delays I have endured in airports.

Cancelled our reservation at last minute due to no available vehicles.
1.9 HorribleSep 8 2021
Made a reservation online, then showed up at Enterprise and was told they did not have a car for me. They said I could wait an hour or so and maybe a car would show up, but likely not, as there were already other people waiting and hoping a car would show up for them.
2.0 MediocreJun 21 2021
The day of our flight we got a phone call letting us know that their office closes at 5:30 or 6..our flight didn’t even get in until 6. Had to cancel our enterprise rental and spend a lot more directly through Avis. Would not use this app again!
10.0 ExcellentAug 13 2019
The staff was amazing when I dropped off the vehicle rather than when I picked it up.Be more bubbly and courteous when helping customers out the whole process of picking up for me was awkward.
2.4 MediocreMay 28 2019
The staff was friendly, and courteous. But was extremely under staffed. The van I rented ran well For the long wait time (1 hr 15 min), and all the other foul ups, the Rep gave me a gas bonus.I already reserved online. So confirmation with the ID and credit card should all be that is needed, but it seems useless. As I had to register as if the online process is worthless. The minivan I rented, was dirty inside, & outside. It had stain marks on the seats, and carpet. The gas was not full

10.0 ExcellentApr 10 2018
Enterprise Rocks!It has always been my experience that Enterprise offers the best "value priced" service. It has been many years since I have had a need to rent a vehicle but my car developed a mechanical issue just prior to a planned road trip. I am so glad that I went with Enterprise. The entire staff was friendly, courteous, and highly responsive. Enterprise has been and always will be my first stop for vehicle rentals.

Service was satisfactory. No problems

Misleading loctionGot to San Diego airport to get our car we pre rented. They said that the reservation was for down town. There was no easy way to get to the down town location. I only requested airport locations. You did not make that clear on the location. We had to pay $55 more than you quoted. Very Frustrated and disappointing. Not a good way to start a vacation. Howard

1.9 HorribleAug 18 2021
I was refused service due to the fact that I didn’t have a credit card completely matching my driver’s licence. The employees seemed condescending, even a bit rude. I wish that there was something posted about this rule because I don’t remember reading anything about it when I initially booked the car.
3.9 MediocreAug 7 2021
Pick up in San Diego Broadway location was easy to find and customer service representative very friendly. However drop off in Las Vegas Fremont location was extremely stressful. No signs to direct us to drop off location, the address given lead us to golden nugget where staff was rude and not helpful. No indication in email or phone calls that car would need to be dropped off in parking garage 2nd level. For future reference at least include in confirmation email more direct information if drop off location isn’t easily accessible.

10.0 ExcellentJun 14 2021
Pickup guy was nice but they were understaffed.At pickup they forgot to write on the contract and in the notes that the tank was 1/4th full when I picked up. So at drop off they charged me $100 for gas. Totally wrong and horrible.
2.0 MediocreMay 13 2021
Nothing, it was prepaid and they charged me extra on my card without my knowledge. I have confirmed a couple of time while returning the car and they mentioned I don't owe anything since everything is pre paid
4.0 OkayMay 1 2021
Gas in the vehicle was not the same as the amount on the receipt. Merchant said he would change up and never did. Bluetooth didn't work. USB port didn't work. Car was extremely dirty and hadn't clearly been clean in a while.Basically everything. Way overpriced, dirty car, didn't work, not a great vehicle and gross.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some National City car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in National City.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your National City car rental.
