We got a great deal on the rental at an enterprise on “airport road”. Unfortunately, that was NOT the enterprise actually AT the airport. So my wife, my fifteen-month-old, our copious luggage and our carseat were all stranded, the place we had our reservation at had just closed, and we were told we’d have to take an Uber to our hotel, then another Uber the next day to pick up the car from the proper location. Embarrassed, we accepted the expensive mistake, and started looking into getting an Uber that could fit all our bags (probably a minivan? Probably a hundred-dollar ride?) But just as we were reeling from TGAT sticker shock, lo! The enterprise representative had returned with a solution just for us! They had a minivan there we could rent. We were so relieved at avoiding the expensive Uber, we didn’t think to ask the cost of the minivan, and it wasn’t mentioned. As it turns out, that was an EXPENSIVE mistake on my part. After signing the paperwork, our budget reservation (at $70/day) had suddenly turned into a $200/day disaster. I should have said something, but I was too stunned and embarrassed and it was too late—I’d already signed. But MAN! Talk about a bait-and-switch! I know… it’s my fault for mixing where I had to be to pick up the car, and it’s my fault for signing without asking the price first, but that doesn’t stop the whole thing from feeling predatory and kinda gross, not to mention personally pretty traumatizing. Now, to be fair, everything ELSE about the car rental experience was excellent and I have zero complaints. Return was a breeze, the car itself was fantastic, everyone was kind and the lady at the return even offered to drop the car off at the terminal, if that would make things easier with our child, but we declined, partially out of worry that it might include an extra charge of some kind. Nevertheless, the glossed-over, hand-waved cost-tripling was just too traumatic, budget-wise. I’ll be avoiding Enterprise, Alamo, and National in the future.

The process for both pick-up and drop-off were super quick and easy, despite obvious limitations with covid.They left me in the dark about my refund for my deposit for using a debit card at pick-up. Still unsure if and when I’ll be receiving it back.

Be sure you get the right shop for airport pickupJake from the Airport Rd. office called to make sure I wanted his (Brainard Airport) office in Hartford, and not them more likely Bradley Airport in Windsor Locks, serving the Hartford area. Thay was going above and beyond and saved me a LOT of trouble. The Bradley shop honored the rate (with higher taxes) and were friendly and professional. I have been scammed by the Alamo/National tactics and highly recommend Enterprise over those two chains.Only that the website didn't make the location abundantly clear. The system should know that "Hartford" might mean Bradley and alert the buyer. That may be Kayak's problem, not sure.

Another example of service that makes me come back!When I brought back the car I mentioned that it smelled of smoke, That was something I had not noticed when I picked the car up but as the week went on the smell got stronger. The young man helping me asked how he could help and I told him I would appreciate not having to pay the $50 fee for dropping the car off at a different location. He asked me to come to the office and the manager there gave me a $25 credit, she could not waive the entire $50 fee but she and her staff's response was so positive and so quick I was fine with the $25.

Pick upPicking up after booking at Bradley Hartford airport was a bit of a hassle. When you book the car you book in Hartford but the enterprise courtesy van takes you to an enterprise in Windsor Locks. Their taxes are higher and they try to charge me $100 more. To pick up enterprise in Hartford was 15 minutes away and their courtesy van would not take me. However they told me I could call Uber. After a bit of talking back-and-forth he finally agreed to honor the price that I got.

Rental price just too high - not a good value.Car was new, clean, and fine for my purposes. Agent at pick up location was friendly and helpful.$78 a day is just plainly too high. I should've shopped around but I didn't have time. Drop off location at JFK airport was annoying to find and then it took forever to get to my terminal using the trains, etc. Maybe not Budget's fault as all the rental car companies would have the same issue.

No one was at the building, no one was available to call about our pickup appointment, just a automated phone tree. Canceled appointment and rebooked with Hertz
1.9 HorribleJun 25 2021
I couldn't reach support. No live people. They messed up my booking and when I went to cancel it online they tried to charge me 400. So I had to call my credit card company to dispute. They someone called me from the company to confirm I was taking the car two days prior to the booking and was a complete dock saying it was my fault. Do not do business with this company
2.0 MediocreMay 25 2021
Nothing at all after checking my reservation it stated that sixt will be closing at 3pm and we gave them a call to let them know that our flight will be getting in at 2:15 pm and once we got there we was told that someone else took the car that we reserved for weeks ago. This facility rather more money over customer service I will not be booking with this company ever again even if it's my last resort. I will take a lyfe or Uber first before stepping into this establishment again

Can't say enough negative things. I called Hertz to move the reservation date, and they didn't properly enter the information. The location I went to for pickup didn't have my car, despite my reservation. I had to uber 30 miles in the opposite direction, I was going to get a vehicle that was of worse quality (no USB imput or AC) than what I had paid for. I understand everybody is struggling with inventory, but I wont' be using Hertz again if I can help it.
1.9 HorribleSep 20 2021
They didn’t actually have a car reserved for me. After making my reservation, I called the day of to confirm. They told me there were not any cars in the area. Their website allows people to overbook. They were not going to reach out and inform me of this either. Their plan was to have me show up and learn the hard way that they didn’t have any cars available for my reservation.
1.9 HorribleJun 24 2021
Very disappointed. They took the reservation but when I got to the rental counter after taking a $30 Uber ride from the airport. I was told that they had no cars and could not fullfil my reservation. The desk clerk also said that they had taken another 120 reservations overnight and they would be unable to fill those too. What is the point of taking a reservation knowing that you are not going to be able to honor the commitment? This was very poor service and I shall not be using Hertz anytime soon.

Very, Very unhappy customer with both Kayak and Hertz Rental CarUnfortunately, there were absolutely nothing pleasurable about this rental process from using Kayak to securing my rental car...very disappointed, very unhappy customer. Will never use Kayak or this Hertz location every again!I did not like the fact of paying in advance (in full) for my rental car only to arrive at Hertz to be told by the very rude front desk manager that we should have never used Kayak for our rental, we will be charged for an extra day we will not be using the car as that location will be closed during our drop-off time and Kayak should have made us aware of that and although Hertz has a drop box, it's not for customers like us and when we tried to reach Kayak, we could never get through...Kayak kept sending us back to the unhelpful Hertz location and we could never talk to a live person at Kayak...first and last time using Kayak or any place where there is no one to speak through directly...extremely poor service!!

the pick up /drop off was pretty well organized. the staff was good and responsive. The car operated normal.the car was not fully cleaned . the overall cost is little too high for a small compact car like Nissan Versa.

Car reeked of cigarette smoke, obviously a chronic smoker was in the car. The seats were dirty. Gas tank was a quarter full.
2.8 MediocreMar 29 2016
Watch out for hidden fees.Was not a far drive to get there.A lot of the problems that I had were because their website was not up to date and did not advertise anything very well. When I went to go pick up my rental vehicle I arrived at the wrong location. They claimed that they had moved to another location, but there is nothing to suggest that online. When I finally got to the facility, they added an additional service fee that even they admitted to not advertising on their website. This makes no sense to me and is very infuriating. The car they wanted to give to me at the time was also missing part of the front grill. If i have a reservation, the car should be properly prepared and ready when I pick it up. In addition to this, they wanted the total payment, plus the service fee and a $250 deposit up front instead of what they had advertised which was $30 upfront and the rest when I dropped it of. This was the last straw for me and I ended up canceling my reservation and not renting from them at all. I do not recommend ACE at all to anyone. In fact I am so disappointed by their service that I am making it a point to tell everyone DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PLACE!!!

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 Newington 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 Newington.
