We tried to use one of the many kiosks rather than waiting in line at the rental car location. The kiosk was extremely slow, it took longer than if we had waited in line. The agent came over eventually. She was friendly and acknowledged the slowness, but that was all. We later learned the vehicle was not adequately prepped. We found ourselves in a predicament when the windshield became very dirty after being parked for several hours. There was no windshield wiper fluid, completely dry. So we had to drive at night with a very dirty windshield in a remote area, not safe. We explained all of this when returning the car. The agent apologized but did not offer anything to make up for the inconvenience. This is not what we expect from Enterprise.

Lots of added fees that were not expected. The usual change in attitude when I didn’t tack on the extra coverage. The shuttle was quick and the driver was helpful. The drop off went fast enough even though they didn’t go in order. She didn’t check the car or anything else so I’m hoping there aren’t any issues.

The vehicle and CarRentals.com value were great. However, the counter person at Dollar was very insulting as he pushed the pre-fuel option, the GPS, the insurance damage waiver, etc.

The chap who did our paper work used unfriendly, high pressure tactics to try to upsell to a Jeep, then more insurance, even after I informed him I purchased additional Alliance complete coverage. Then he made sure I knew I had to turn the car in full of gasoline (as if this was my first time renting a car).....trying to upsell to their gas prices ($.63/ gal higher than Costco gas). Then, he made sure I filled up within 5 miles of the airport in Lihue (Kauai). This lecturing was very unwelcoming for our first trip to Kauai. Upon, car rental return, I made sure the reset trip odometer showed 3.8 miles from Costco.......completely ignored by the young gal receiving the car. The car was fine, however, the office person could learn some good customer relations techniques.
