We upgraded to convertible. Nice ride for sunny Florida. I thought I rented at airport but it ended up being off site and needed Uber to get there. They let me return car to airport because our flight was very early and I was concerned about getting Uber at 5am in the dark with my 7 y/o.

Greqt experience with this enterprise location. Agent at checkin was professional, quick and helpful. The car worked very well for a much needed family vacation at the beach.

They did not have the car that we had pre-ordered. But like most rental car companies, they get around that by saying "like vehicle." Our "like vehicle" was smaller than the model we reserved.It was very expensive for five days too. Plus, it had an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke that was disgusting. None of the six of us are smokers. I called the 800 number and had a long conversation with someone who couldn't do anything about it. That person transferred me to another department. I sat on hold for 50 minutes listening to some cheesy music before I gave up. I think we paid too much. I also think their customer service is horrible. I could tell the person on the phone who could barely speak English didn't really want to offer anything as far as a solution. So, we are not happy and will likely not ever use Avis again as a result. We are used to using Enterprise and have had fairly decent experiences with them each time.

Everything went smooth with our pick up. We had a late flight that didn’t arrive until 11 pm. The car was very clean, ran excellent and had no problems whatsoever. Would definitely go with them again.
