I was told the day before trip there were no cars available…. We finally did get a car but the person behind the desk was rude… we were promised an up grade but did not get one. We could barely fit our luggage in the car we were given and were told we had to return the car with half a tank of gas even though there was only a quarter tank in the car to start. It was very stressful

Staff was friendlyThe pick up Car was filthy, carpet was filled with dog hair. There was food and drink inside the doors and cup holders animal cookies all over. Car smelled of cigarettes. Had the car for 2 weeks couldn’t get rid of the the smell. I had to thoroughly clean and vacuum the car before I’d put my family in it.

The staff members were great!I tried to contact customer service at kayak because I purchased vehicle coverage it enterprise does not honor it and I wanted to cancel it for that reason. However, each time I called, I was routed to enterprise and couldn’t get a refund. I will not use your service again

NothingI go to pick up my rental SUV that I had reserved for two weeks. I made a adjustment to it the friday before to pick it up Tuesday morning at 7:30 am instead on Monday at 530pm. The kid that modified my reservation I believe his name was Ian from Enterprize in Morganton on hey 64 he told me I was set that it has changed told me my total and i went on way excited for my upcoming vacation. I go in to get my rental Tuesday morning and ready to hit the road with my children for Mrytle Beach they tell me they dont have me nothing that I was suppose to come in yesterday. I explained that I modified it and the guy said there was nothing he could do and try to make it sounds like it was fault. The manager was very rude about it and put blame on me. I had to call enterprize and frantically find another rental no one could help me. Long story short I finally found a Van from Ecomomy Car rental for double my rate I had reserved from Enterproze. Very unprofessional and I will never use them again. Oh yea we finally got on the road for the beach at noon 4.5 hours later and 175 bucks more cost. Thanks Enterprize.

It takes a bit too long to pick up a car. Drop off is quicker but pick up takes a long time.

Very reasonable ratesI was able to get what I needed, when I needed for a great price. Ben was very nice and friendly and explained everything and even answered a question when I called later after renting the vehicle.

The "full-size SUV" was more mid-size than full-size. We didn't have any trunk space and then the car's maintenance required sign popped up on the first day we had the car. The Hertz employee said the car had Blind-Spot Monitoring - it did NOT.

Car smelled, refused to take AAA because I didn't use their website, and rep seemed rushed. Would not use Hertz again.

Good jobStaff was very friendly and helpful. Van was ready when requested and was clean and full of gas. Check engine light came on while we had the van but that could happen to any vehicle at any time. Overall good experience.Just that check engine light. But that could happen to anyone anywhere with any vehicle.

The pick up location staff were great, the vehicle was wonderful!We couldn't find the drop off location, searched for 20 minutes. Google maps took us to the wrong place so I was 17 minutes late and was charged 45 additional dollars!! We were with someone raised in Virginia Beach and she couldn't find the place either. Very frustrated...

We were initially put in a car that reeked of smoke. (Our first clue of a problem should have been the chatty employee that talked about 'so many cars are returned with a smokey smell'... as though that would somehow make this seem normal.) We had to complain to get the car changed, but once we complained, the car was quickly swapped out. IMO, the guy wanted to unload the car on us - we were doing a long distance one-way rental... he probably wanted us to take the car so that he could remove it from his inventory.

I never got to pick up the car. I ran into traffic and was literally 3 minutes late. I called ahead to let them know and asked if they could stay open 5 min so I could get the car. Instead they told me they closed promptly at 5:00 and there was nothing they could do about it. Extremely poor customer service

You have to have a major credit card to rent from avis, I have a regular checking account and was told I couldnt rent a car because I didnt have a credit card. Yet I had plenty of money in the bank to take care of it. I was also told this after I was told about the deposit system too. Unfortunately though no one told me before I went to get the car about the deposit. So I never got all the info I needed until time to pick up the car. It was a horrible experience and I will never use avis or budget rental cars for anything EVER again. I took my time and money where it was appreciated

Yes. I picked it up in a small town and they told me some things that Charlotte staff said wasn't true but they gave me a $10 discount when I dropped it off 2 make up the differenceI was really nervous picking up the car because it had animal hair on many of the seats and the floor mat was torn and there were a lot of rather large scratches on the hood. They kept reassuring me that I wouldn't be charged for any of that but in the past I've had them be real sticklers about it so asked them to write it on my check out papers. They kind of acted like I was crazy to be concerned about being charged for the damaged :-)

Got a filthy dirty car!The inside of the car was fine, and what we expected. Pick-up and drop off were super quick and convenient.The car was filthy dirty outside. So bad, I took photos. Don't know how they can release a car in those conditions! Also, we picked up late in the day, and the day we wanted to return the car, they were not open that late, so we had to pay for an entire extra day for one hour. On top of that, I just noticed they charged us a $10 fee for giving them an extra day of busines!!! This should not happen. Other companies we rent from allow you to return anytime. Guess they have a camera that tells them when you dropped it off [or the keys in the slot], to make sure you are on time. Avis should get with the times!

Overall Great RentalCar was the same size as advertised, and the rate given by Kayak was exactly what we were charged. We even got a refund for leaving more gas than we got! This was our first experience using Kayak and overall it was great, especially the rate in comparison to others.Car had not been cleaned outside, just "watered" down. They did not go over dents in the car and when we noticed drove back to let them know.
