I called at the last minute and all the cars were out, but I got a mini-van. Check-out and check-in was super fast. I appreciated the kindness and courtesy shown to me by Tom. I would rather work with nice people than drive the ideal car.

I arrived late as I entered the incorrect pick up time when I booked my reservation but someone was there and quickly handled getting me squared away. The return process was equally as quick and easy!

My experience was great although we had to exchange our vehicle one hour prior to our destination to Maine but enterprise customer service was very prompt in pointing us to the nearest enterprise for another vehicle exchange...
