Pickup was good. Drop off required a wait as only 1 agent was working the counter.

I’m not sure who is doing the hiring for Enterprise, but whoever it is deserves a big fat bonus. My interactions with Enterprise staff in both Ottawa and Fredericton were second to none!

I had a lesser good experience than often. Indeed, the agent offered me an insurance option of $5/ day which turn out to be 35$/d presuming I had agreed for the whole coverage. I never purchase car insurance as it comes with my credit car. So, I paid 78$ instead of 27$ + tax. Not a good deal this time for me. That would not prevent me from coming back to Hertz to rent cars but I will be very tough now with offers that are made to me.

office closes at 1am, but flight arrived at 1:30. Would have been nice to know that the office would be closed when I made the reservation. Other than that issue, everything else was excellent.

Other than the shuttle driver who picked us up and drove us to the lot, there was a distinct lack of customer service at Routes. I mentioned that for some reason my navigation was not working; the man at the counter just shrugged (he could have mentioned they had wifi I could use). When I returned the car, I was ignored for 10 minutes while the ONE counter employee helped another customer; a simple "be right with you" would have gone a long way. Then the woman at the counter told me I was being charged an additional $150, without telling me why. Then she said "oh never mind, the machine is wrong" but did nothing to assure me that I would not indeed be charged (I'm keeping an eye on my credit card statement). Lastly, the man who drove us back to the airport drove aggressively and erratically (had trouble staying in his lane) and groused about the local government.
