The office closes at 6pm but my flight arrived at midnight... I had to pay $260 for a taxi. Customer service? "our office is currently closed, please call back during out business hours". Awful!

Rental was for 08:00 am, but the car was not ready until 09:00. Was told they do not have the staff and he could not tell me when the car would be ready. Once the car was delivered, still had trash in the back from prior rental.

The staff was great, the service was excellent - easy pick up and drop-off (and the woman staffing the desk remembered me three days later!). I found the entire experience to be easy and understandable (where to go, what to do, etc.) from beginning to end.The car wasn't all that great. It was safe, it was functional, and it was most definitely clean. However, I would have preferred something a little more comfortable and modern, even at my small-car/low-level need.

NothingKayak reserved my car at Salinas Airport from Saturday to the following Saturday. Come to find out right before I am to pick up the car that location is not open weekends. Nobody bothered to tell me that they where not open. I had to scramble and find another car. Luckily Avis in Santa Cruz was able to bail me out.

NothingI could have got my rental without having to cancel because they wanted to start switching people over to credit card when I already payed in advance then let me know I can’t have my debit card on file even though it was prepaid also I didn’t like that I was taunted for not having a credit card

Customer service at drop off in SFO made me feel very uncomfortable. They are looking to cheat customers out of money however they can.
5.6 OkayJun 13 2020
I liked everything except the part where I was lied to.When I called enterprise I was told I could drop my car off in Sacramento at no extra cost. I was told all I need to do is inform the pickup location that I was doing that. When I called the pickup location the man told me he was going to take $50 out of my deposit for dropping the car off in Sacramento despite the fact I was told it wouldn't cost me to do that. I am still waiting to get my deposit back and suspect I'll be calling to complain about the deception.

Car wouldn’t start on Saturday evening. 20 minute hold for roadside assistance operator. Told there was a $55 dollar charge for roadside assistance. Help arrived quickly and they jump started car. Told me to run at least 1/2 hour to charge battery. The next morning the car wouldn’t start. I used my own battery charger To start. Enterprise told me they had no cars locally that I could swap cars. Had to drive 70 miles each way to San Jose to swap. When I returned the car the next day, they took off $55 dollar roadside assistance charge (no s$&t) but only gave me $7 off for my trouble. About 4 hours of my time and $20 in gas and they only refunded me $7 No happy.

Have not dropped off yet. The car was not clean. And for the car I received the price was very expensive. If your going to change what you do at least clean the car? Unacceptable.A clean car!

Enterprise allowed me to rent the car online. The employees had to call and inform me that they didn’t have any cars. To their credit, they did this right away and I appreciate that. The Enterprise company should not be advertising cars they don’t have.

I rented an “Expedition or similar “. They delivered an Explorer and charged extra for the bigger car.
2.0 MediocreJul 23 2019
When I called Enterprise no car was available and I was put on waiting list. I live in a tourist area and you might have thought a car was avail. but on busy weekend that wasn't so. Very disappointing! Rent from them frequently by directly phoning no problem. Won't bother using Kayak in future.That you actually check to see if car avail. by phone or other than electronic.

Car hire excess insurance in Salinas

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 Salinas 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 Salinas.


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 Salinas car rental.
