We had a great experience with this Enterprise location. A nice gentleman named Will went above and beyond and made our rental experience very easy and hassle free. It took less than 10 minutes to pick up, no lines. And was just as easy to drop off with someone greeting us as soon as we arrived.

Everything was fine EXCEPT a problem on the price of the return to another station announced 30 GBP on the contract Autoaescape and billed 35 GPB! This is not normal! Thank you for the refund.

Enterprise at Gatwick's South terminal was the smoothest rental process EVER! The staff was friendly, there was no wait and no pressure to upgrade to unnecessary add-ons.

There was some delay at pick-up desk because of an obstreperous customer whom the agent was handling ever so patiently. Agent's behavior on that as well as everything for us was exemplary. Free upgrade to slightly different car was also well explained and much appreciated. Return was handled similarly.

Overall, the car turned out to be ok and Hertz are normally pretty good. However on this occasion in this location I had some issues. Firstly I booked online and was confirmed around 6.15am. When I went to the counter they said they wouldn't have any cars until 9am. Even though car rentals.com confirmed a 7am pickup they said it would normally take 3 hours from the time of booking. Secondly, the excess on this car with no insurance was 10,000 UKP. Luckily I have 3rd party insurance, but in general, companies like Enterprise have a 1000 UKP excess. I've found this to be the highest excess of anywhere I've rented in the world.

Drop-off was quick, efficient, very friendly. Drop off was annoying. Wanted to get a receipt to show I had returned the car (at LHR, picked it up at LGW), said they couldn't give me that had to wait for provider to do it. Finally said they would write their name on a business card so I had something to show that I had returned the car undamaged. Ended up waiting for them to call other branch twice and get account closed. 20+ minutes what should have been simple.
