Very long wait for pick up…
5.9 OkayJul 24 2021
Cost was insanely expensive, but all rent a cars are that way right now. Cars was a bit old too. Pick up in Hartford took forever, one worker checking in everyone for Dollar, Thrifty and Hertz. She was great, but it took a long time because she was by herself. Drop off in Portland was a mess. No one to check in cars. Still don’t have a receipt more than 24 hours after drop off.

Quick shuttle from airport.Dollar and Hertz were combined which was confusing. Drop-off was time consuming as there was a line to drop-off the car and then only 1 shuttle to the airport so many people had to wait for multiple shuttle trips

Our flight was delayed, landing us about 30 minutes after Dollar closed for the night. Before our flight departed, I called the Dollar location directly to inform them. If they wouldn’t be open, I was going to cancel my reservation and book with someone else who would still be there. They assured me it wouldn’t be an issue, and took down my flight information. As soon as we landed, I called again, and nobody answered. We waited for the bus to show, but it never did. They closed at their regular time, and left us stranded. Then, because we didn’t cancel before the time we were supposed to arrive, they refused to refund the money since we prepaid. I would not rent with Dollar again.

Charged a30 dollar device fee for a $1.30 toll. Super disappointed. Counter guy knew my husband was going on I 90 but said he didn’t need toll box. Just another way to rip off consumer

Drop off was easyI was downgraded from a larger vehicle and kept trying to get upsold on things I did not need. The trip ended up okay but the drive was tight and packing luggage was a challenge.

I was told by an attendant when I dropped off my car at MSP airport location to just leave my keys in the car and they will take care of it. When I reached my next location, I wasn't able to rent my car because my rental policy wasn't closed. The manager had to do an override which extended the time it took to rent second car and it was late...about 1:00 a.m. at that time. Even after a couple days, I haven't received a receipt for that 1st rental at MSP. It was frustrating.

Drop off was easy.Pickup attendant seemed bothered we were there. The car had scuffs all down the side that were not disclosed before hand so we took pictures and went back inside and she just scribbled it down on a paper and handed it back to me. And the check engine light came on in the car.

Broken ez-toll pass. Found that out 2 hours into my trip when I attempted to pay a toll. Budget told me to pay and kee my receipts. Well apparently you can't pay because the ez-pass was paying all the tolls. ]So even though I didn't open it it was still activated therefore I'm charged for the device everyday I had the rental. Calling my local budget and the 800 number was ABSOLUTELY no help at all. Second it rained...I pull off and water is running i to the car from the fron windshield. TOTALLY NOT WORTH $493.00 that I paid. However I had to get my daughter back to school t a certain time so I had to SUCK IT UP!!!

Long wait upon arrival. Car I rented was not available. Tried to offer a smaller car but in the end they ended up giving me a comparable one. Drop off after was easy and the shuttle driver James Smith was super prompt, respectful and helpful (even though he was unfairly harassed by a family of 3 when there were not enough seats for them on the current shuttle).
5.9 OkayAug 25 2021
Persons at the pickup counter were having side conversations and not very pleasant. There were three ladies at the counter. The person servicing me was aloof, distant, and seemed annoyed with the entire process. My card didn't work at the counter so I had to use a different card. I had been having earlier issues with it as well. I apologized and thanked her for being patient, no response but a head nod. Then she started talking about being hungry and then chatter about where to eat with a gentleman and one of the other ladies at the counter. My payment went thru for the deposit on my debit for the $500. The rental was prepaid already. I have had major issues with Hertz over the years. The customer service is usually sub-par and getting some one on the line is usually a 30 min or more wait. I always have issues with getting my deposit returned to me too. I think this is my last time with Hertz. I took a few years to rent again and now I remember why. Still waiting for my deposit or at the very least some information on where it is since my bank said it's a Hertz issue.
1.9 HorribleAug 24 2021
Hertz makes things difficult when you rent thru Kayak- had to change my drop off location (30 miles away so not a big deal) and it took me forever to change it as they said I had a fixed contract. Ugh. Better to rent direct.

Chevy spark is a very small car for a man that is 6 foot tall. There was not driver side floor mat, which i made aware to the cleaning crew in which they said when it gets too dirty they just throw them out. There was dirt on the back seat, but was not an issue for me. The car has great gas mileage. The key to steering she distance was very close and when using the windshield wipers I kept hitting the keys. Thought I was going to knock them out like I did with my cobalt pre-recall fix.

I was given a Chevy Spark. If they charged $19 or $29 a day, it might have been acceptable. However, at over $100 a day, it was a ridiculously small car with no features. I am 6'3" and it felt like a clown car to me. Shuttle driver and staff were very friendly.

drop off and pick up was very easythe care I rented, a Nissan Rogue does not have a seat option to raise and lower it. It was uncomfortable to drive as I am short and was unable to adjust the seat to a better driving position where I could actually see the front end of the car.

Drop off was frustrating; still have not received an email receipt from a Sunday evening return—there was no attendant I could find and am worried it hasn’t been checked in.
4.4 OkayAug 22 2020
Undocumented fees. No notification at any time during the booking and confirmation process. Very disappointing.
5.2 OkayAug 17 2020
Staff was helpful and courteous on pickup and dropoff.The car had a large obstruction (1/1/2 to 2 inches) on the windshield, in the middle of my field of vision. When I picked up the car I just thought it was from a bug, and when the wipers did not remove it I planned on cleaning the windshield myself when I got home (was leaving on a trip early the next morning). The substance on the windshield was like a hardened glue, and I could not remove it. I tried calling your service number but could not reach a representative. I left on my trip (7 hour drive)early the next morning and had to drive with the obstruction in my line of vision.

All the staff were very friendly and happy. We were in a car in about 5 minutes and took us less than a minute to check out. It’s close to the airport and was a straight shot to the main highways. I would easily come back here next time.I’m really trying to think of something critical, but can’t. It’s an older building, but still felt clean. Routine oil change light came on in our vehicle. It was a minivan, which is not our style but made for a great laugh the whole time (and that’s what we reserved because it was a good price).

Our flight wasn't until 7:30 p.m. and the car had to be returned at 11 a.m... We called Andrew at the Hartford location and for 4.$ extra we were able to keep the car until 4. They also allowed us to drop the car at a location closer to the airport. The experiecne made our trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you Enterprise. Your new loyal customers,

Pleased with Enterprise van rentalfriendly and helpful staff, very capable and answered my questions. Very positive experience for us. We got a fairly new van, very clean and enjoyed driving it (although the stereo system was a bit tricky to figure out - not Enterprise's fault but perhaps could have given a tutorial).They had a bathroom but it had a sign "Employees Only" which is not a customer-friendly warning (they let us use it but they should expect customers coming from long trips to need facilities). Also, someone - Enterprise, KAYAK - should have given us the heads up about needing insurance documentation; our rental process took longer than it had to as we had to call the insurer and go through an authentification process to complete the rental.

Good valueEmployees were very friendly (almost awkwardly/falsely so) and the transaction was smooth and quick.The car was obviously cleaned in a rush. Many parts of the car were not clean including the steering wheel. I guess you can't expect much out of a rental car..

Reservation was for 10am. Van was not ready until 11am. The cars should already be cleaned and waiting outside for the reservation start time.

For some reason I was not in the AVIS system. What I found on Kayak and THOUGHT i booked for approx $700 ended up a standard rental that I had to book at the last moment at the counter for $1297. I have no idea why this Kayak reservation did not go through. I suspect I never received any confirmation other than a mobile text when I booked it. I see the airline ticket and hotel were done around 6/7. Any way I can be credited some of this EXPENSIVE rental?

Very friendly and helpful! My problem is with Priceline. They scheduled this at a downtown location, which after I got off the airplane had no way to get to before closing. System shouldn’t have allowed. I selected BDL airport and couldn’t have known what street the car rental places are. Avis worked with me but airport fees made the care over $100 more. I won’t be ordering from Priceline again. I will order from Avis directly. They are great.See above.
