Generally, I am satisfied with the car rental. However, I was told that there was no customer pick up on Saturdays. There's no advertisement that says only weekday pick ups. The millennial comportment on the phone with patrons leaves much to be desired. Vehicles are ridiculously expensive for a one day in town rental.

SARASOTA, FL: There was a problem with a reservation with another company that I had to cancel. When I attempted to get a taxi they were not very helpful and were very expensive. The first rental agency I went to kind of laughed at me and told me No One had cars to rent without a reservation. I got online and quickly rented a car while I was standing in front of Enterprise and they popped up. The young woman at the Enterprise desk said she had a couple of cars and would see if she could help me. Within about 8 minutes I was on my way. The gentlemen in the parking lot were also very nice and helpful both on picking up the car and on the return. The car was clean and drove well. I was very appreciative! Kudos to your employees in Sarasota, FL!
