2.0 MediocreMar 26 2021
Pros: Reservation & Confirmation was useless at check-in when I find there is no car available to rent.Cons: Actually have a car to rent before confirmation of my reservation!
5.2 OkayOct 22 2020
Pros: Drop off was difficult and unclear. There was only a small sign saying that budget was closed and to return car to avis. this should have been told to me at the time of pickup to avoid complications catching my flightCons: they should have disclosed that they would not be "open" during my return hours and how to return the vehicle to prevent issues when trying to catch my flight after spending 30 minutes driving around the rental area and airport trying to figure it out for myself
9.6 ExcellentSep 9 2020
Pros: The gal that escorted us to our vehicle was excellent. Made a nice upgrade gesture that significantly enhanced our trip.Cons: I should have been told during my order placement that u were offering a 3rd party insurance company where u would have required me to use my deductible...then “I” would have to get reimbursed from the insurance company. Sneaky!
2.0 MediocreAug 23 2020
Pros: Never picked upCons: Should Have been notified that I needed to use my credit card at least a week before I had to pick up. I won’t be using enterprise ever again
9.6 ExcellentAug 3 2020
Pros: The renting process at both airports and the car were great.Cons: The website and confirmation. Other than going into the Kayak System, I had no email confirmation about my rental. So I was nervous that the reservation did not truly exist. It did, but without some confirmation, it was difficult. I would also like it if there were notifications sent the day before confirming the reservation and what to expect.
2.0 MediocreJul 27 2020
Pros: Nothing.Cons: I rented a convertible to drive away from my wedding to our reception. They called me 10 minutes before pickup and said “whoever rented the convertible didn’t bring it back last night.” Upon calling them a second time and speaking to another representative, he informed me they never have convertibles, so whoever spoke to me the first time lied to me. Then he told me they couldn’t help me find the convertible at another local Enterprise and that they wouldn’t honor my Kayak prices. I spent over an hour ON MY WEDDING DAY on hold and talking to various clueless, helpless, hand-wringing local and corporate Enterprise employees. Long story short, we had to rent a convertible from Alamo and they were *AWESOME*, but it ended up being triple the price. Stay away from Enterprise. They’re hapless.
7.2 GoodJul 22 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful and check in was super speedy. Vehicle was very clean and well outfitted.Cons: Due to Covid the rental offices of a number of rental agencies had been combined to a central location, a fact that was not relayed to myself or many renters as there was lots of confusion with folks picking up and dropping off vehicles. People should be advised to call their rental provider for updated information on new operating system.
9.2 ExcellentJul 5 2020
Cons: Inside of the car cleaner, dog hair all over
8.4 ExcellentJul 1 2020
Pros: Your staff was very nice and did the best they can do with all this Covid stuff going on. Returning was super easy and fast!Cons: Actually I really didn’t like my van. It was fine and it fit my family. I drive an suv at home so I would of preferred that but they are costly to rent. But all in all enterprise was great and I’ll use enterprise again. Thanks!☺️
3.2 MediocreJun 16 2020
Pros: Drop off was easyCons: The first car was so smoky that the family we rented it for, with two young children, could hardly stand the smell. They traded that car in for another one at the coast and that car was dirty (in a pandemic, when the car should have been sanitized) and also smoky.

10.0 ExcellentApr 17 2021
Pros: The manager was extremely helpful and accommodating due to us not being notified that the location we were supposed to pick our car at had closed permanently without us being notified.Cons: Hertz’s phone customer service wasn’t very good. They basically said they couldn’t help us in making sure our reservation was honored. They wanted to cancel our reservation and charge us $1000 more to rent a car.
6.0 GoodApr 12 2021
Cons: Better service, clean better the cars and have son drops at the airport or pick up at the airport
2.0 MediocreApr 1 2021
Cons: They could have actually rented me a vehicle instead of telling me it was not available after I had the reservation and had even called them to confirm after making the on-line reservation.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Cons: We got there and the rental car place was closed so we were charged and never received a car!
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2021
Cons: The car wasn’t even available and I was forced to go to a different company and pay an extremely high price for a vehicle. Last time I use this site.
6.0 GoodMar 8 2021
Pros: very easy drop offCons: car smelled liked smoke
6.0 GoodFeb 26 2021
Cons: I made a reservation in advance, yet when I got there I was told that there were no mid size cars. I was charged an extra $10/day ($40) total for an SUV.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 23 2021
Pros: The car was clean, good on gas, and supported Android Auto, which was a HUGE plus for me.Cons: The car smelled like tobacco, which definitely would've been a problem for more sensitive noses.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 22 2021
Cons: Customer service for this booking was very slow.
10.0 ExcellentJan 19 2021
Pros: Although it’s a small space it was great to go to a rental place that had the space for vehicles and great price for rental.Cons: It could not have gone better. When I rent again I wish I could select the same model but I understand that’s not possible.

2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Pros: NothingCons: They could have left a voicemail saying they didn't have any cars available.
8.0 ExcellentDec 29 2020
Pros: Considering the conditions of COVID, the young lady was very helpful and checked me in quickly and when I returned the car the same girl waited on me again and made my car return and easy transitionCons: The location in the mall is horrible, bad parking and hard to find. I drove around the mall twice before I was able to find the location of Budget. Also when I got in the car, it was clean, however the car had a strong marijuana odor. I did report this to the clerk at the counter, she made note of it. But because of the timing and the lack of cars available I went ahead and took the car anyhow. But it was unpleasant to drive a car with that odor when you are a non user and a non smoker.
6.8 GoodJul 7 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful and the process was simpleCons: More locations with slightly later drop off hours
2.8 MediocreMar 21 2019
Pros: The car got me from point A to point B comfortably.Cons: The car didn't have rims and was dirty when I picked it up. No attendant at pickup location, waited for 30 minutes before the attendant arrived. Attendant at drop off had me stand outside in the rain while he remarked about the condition of the car.
4.4 OkayDec 9 2018
Not impressedCons: The check in process was awful and took 45 minutes. The mans clmpjter was down so he spent 15 mins trying to reboot, then had to do everything manually. Then the only behicle he has was a pickup truck when I needed an economy vehicle. The truck was dented and had stains/crumbs all over the inside.
10.0 ExcellentOct 31 2018
Lisa SPros: Although the location was hard to find, the pick up process was painless, it was like a scavenger hunt.Cons: That the location was hard to b yind
7.6 GoodOct 14 2018
Pros: Anne was amazing! She was able to help me get a vehicle when I had no reservation.Cons: The price paid for a pickup truck was excessive.
2.0 MediocreAug 19 2018
No customer serviceCons: We did not end up renting a car.
6.8 GoodJul 7 2018
Pros: Rapid and effective counter person. Free upgrade appreciated. Dirty car not appreciated.Cons: Condition of car. Dirtiest rental ever. Unwashed. Unvacuumed. Interior had spills not cleaned.
10.0 ExcellentApr 9 2018
Pros: Easy and quick service for pick up and drop off. Also, very good condition of the car. I drove 1420 miles without any issue at all.

2.0 MediocreMar 28 2021
Cons: The day before the reservation, I got a call informing me that there were no cars available and they they would be cancelling my reservation. No alternate options were provided.
8.0 ExcellentDec 23 2020
Pros: Both gals who helped me with pick up and then drop off were super.Cons: The pick up at the Raleigh NC mall 5 days before Christmas was very chaotic. I couldn't find the car once I had the keys, and the woman working was all alone so couldn't leave the desk inside the mall to help me find it. That was very time consuming and took much longer than it should have. Having dedicated and labeled Avis spots in the mall parking lot are a necessity, especially if Avis isn't going to hire extra help. She had to leave her post and help me find the car. She didn't know where it was either in the chaos of a mall parking lot before Christmas.
9.2 ExcellentDec 9 2019
Pros: Great car selectionCons: Mall location had a lot of traffic to navigate though. Not sure how this could be improved.
6.4 GoodJul 22 2019
Pros: I like how Avis stretched the definition of a "midsize" booking to include a Nissan Sentra. That's very creative.Cons: Leave lots of extra time to drop a car at the Wilmington (NC) airport. You have to find a parking space, unload your belongings, walk into the airport, and wait at the rental counter. And all of that counts against your return time. If that makes you "late" to return your car, it's an extra $30-50.
5.6 OkayMar 26 2018
Dirty inside & outPros: No-hassel renting. Quick rental process, pickup, & dropoff.Cons: Car was filthy. Didn't have time to request a different car so I eventually vacuumed car out myself. Outside was dirty as if it had been driven in a little bit of snow. Called avis 800 # to complained and only offered $20 off future rental.
3.6 MediocreJan 9 2018
Filthy CarCons: Dirtiest rental car I've ever seen. Interior and exterior were dirty.
2.4 MediocreSep 3 2017
Least attentative desk personnelCons: The Avis representative in Raleigh was one of the worst experiences I've had. He literally left the desk and I didn't know what to do with the keys or car or exactly where to leave them. They were not helpful at all on where to park the car. They really did not do anything at all and I did not get any confirmation that the car with properly taken care of from the Avis Staff in Raleigh
2.0 MediocreOct 21 2016
No Cars!!!Pros: Received a text when I landed at RDU that they had no cars for my reservation!!! I was left to find another car on my own!!!! Never again would I consider Avis!
