Rented round trip from the airport budget car rental. They did not want us to take our pre-paid car without a return flight ticket which we did not have due to rental and return city is our place of residence. Than they needed a major credit card which I only have debt. I had to use my son-in-laws credit card which made him the only driver without adding an additional charge for me to drive. The 12 passenger van had pretzels, chips, and paper plates in it upon picking it up. The van itself was great and fit our needs.

The experience was terrible. The staff was unfriendly. They demanded to know where I worked and a direct phone number to my direct supervisor. This is unreal and has never happened at any company I have rented from in any state or country. When I challenged them on it, it was accused of wanting to steal the car! It was insane. The woman helping me received a call from her manager while I was there, when I asked to speak to a manager she turned to her friend at the counter next to her and told me she was the manager (even though I knew she wasnt). When we got the car, the gas was at a quarter tank (I have never had a car that wasnt full when renting) and the radio did not work. When I ask to see if they could look at it, the unhelpful and unfriendly woman who had assisted me gave us a dirty, run down car full of pet hair and smudged windows (on the inside!). Lastly, I was told that even though I paid for the extra insurance through the booking site, they do not allow me to use it, that they would demand my actual car insurer information. This is beyond unacceptable and absurd. What if I did not have a car? Am I unable to rent then? I will NEVER rent from Enterprise again.

When I got there they only had one car and I realized after I left the car did not smell great. Like smoke. They upgraded me and were so nice about it. The new car was great. The staff very friendly and helpful

Since they didn't have any intermediate size vehicles available when I went in to pick up my rental, they upgraded me to a pick up truck for free and included a free tank of gas for the inconvenience. Staff was extremely helpful and went over the top to make sure I left with a car. 10 stars

Couldn't have been more helpful and timely. Car was ready, counter help was outstanding. Car drop-off at our trip's end was first-class, friendly and courteous. Even allowed us to keep our luggage in the trunk of the rental car until our Lyft drive arrived. They (Hertz) run a 1st class operation and have earned our trust & support for future needs!!

I booked a car with Enterprise for the Phoenix airport. When I arrived, I discovered it was at another location 20 minutes from the airport car rental counters. I asked how to get there, they said call Uber or Lyft. Really? I've never flown into Phoenix, so I had no idea they booked me for a different location. I ended up renting from the airport car center for twice the price. This is unfair for travelers who don't know the lay of the land and are easily deceived.

In general, I've has good rentals with Enterprise. This location isn't necessarily bad, but it wasn't the best. Pick up was easy. When I got home I found 2 empty drinking bottles under the passenger seat, trash in the hide-away cup holders, and a melted recesses

The charges were double what I had been quoted, but after I returned to the rental location and asked about the problem, they fixed it and gave me a 7% discount, which was appreciated.
