Very efficient and friendly service both picking up the car and dropping it off. I’ve never had a “preferred” car rental company before. I’ve always just booked with whichever agency came up cheapest. I will be booking with Enterprise from now on.

Plane redirected to Heathrow so needed to get up to Birmingham. No payment was taken in advance, and the guess at hertz had the flight no. so they would know in advance if we were delayed. Was able to pick up LHR and drop off BHX no problem. Great price, car was in good condition (minor dent in door was already recorded and proved no issue at drop off when returned). Family stayed in touch with Hertz who kept them updated without any problem when confirming they would still be open. Short, quick shuttle from airport to rental office.

We had to wait about 2 minutes for the shuttle bus at the airport. On arrival at the rental office, a manager greeted us and we were taken out to our vehicle immediately. Absolutely zero rate time which I have never experienced before! The same on return - seamless.
