1.9 Horrible

Jun 2021

KAYAK
Car was not at airport to begin with, was at a satellite location. Took 2 hours to get there. Next, only car available was an abused Mustang. Not what I wanted. Car had exhaust leak, poor alignment, and stunk of pot, and a slow leak in a tire. Returned to satellite office to complain about the smell, they flushed ac with chlorine. Didn't help, the smell was back in 20 minutes. Eventually the tire went flat, no jack in the car. Waited 3 hours for roadside assistance to finally send someone (we were in the center of a small city). Agent on the phone for roadside assistance promised a different car, to be picked up at the airport. Drove half hour to airport next morning with donut tire, was told that I can not exchange there, I have to go to satellite office. Drove another half hour to satellite office with donut tire. Finally got a car closer to what I originally requested. Returning car to pay the bill and was surprised by the amount. Original price was supposed to be just $500. Now the total is $795. Could not stay and complain because we had to get to the airport for our flight. Will not ever rent from enterprise again, and I will advise anybody that mentions renting a car to avoid enterprise like the plague of a shady business that they are.

Cons:

The car was not clean. Especially in these times that is very disappointing. We believed we were renting a vehicle from the airport location not the TUNNEL RD location 30 minutes away. This was a total pain. The taxi to the location cost us $45 dollars. We literally begged them to change our drop off location. We made no less then 5 phones, tried to speak with a manager to change our drop off location and all we were told was NO- GET AN UBER. We were left with no options, we TRIED to get an UBER and the Asheville Uber did not show up at 5:00 am as we suspected we wouldn't. We drove an unnecessary hour in the car prior to driving to the actual airport Enterprise location and leaving the car there. We new we were going to have a problem and the staff simply did not care.

Pros:

The staff at the airport was uncooperative and when I asked if I could change the drop off location the person at the counter made a point to be short and was not helpful. I also asked about adding another driver and he seemed annoyed at my questions. Because of this I canceled my reservation and booked at the counter next door. He told me that I would still be charged for the day if I switched in a manner that was intended to scare me than in making any effort to be helpful. but once I made the other reservation he was able to refund my money.

Cons:

Better customer service at the counter.

Staff was great! Second time we have rented from the same location. Got the managers special which at first was a shock...not a car but a truck!! That was the only vehicle they had available. I use a cane and had to step on my suitcase to get into the vehicle. Ended up being a very comfortable ride and so easy to drive. It ended up being a great ride with grand kids too!

Pros:

Staff in Asheville was terrible. They ended up giving us the wrong car and we only found it out when we dropped it off in Jacksonville. Staff in Jacksonville as almost as bad. The car was also not cleaned before. Someone's old coke can was left in the car.

Cons:

Whatever you do, make sure you get a PAPER contract when you pick up your car. They said we didn't need one in Asheville and they just emailed it to us, but once we got to Jacksonville, Hertz acted like we should have had one and they treated us as if we were the problem with it not being there.

Jan 2021

Pros:

Not much, honestly. I specifically rented a small car and was given a larger SUV that I didn't really want to drive. See below. The dropoff in Chesapeake was fine. The rental price was much better than what competitors quoted me.

Cons:

Just about everything. The vehicle was in need of alignment so driving it was a challenge. And despite being told there was half a tank of gas, it was barely 1/4 of a tank. The pickup took forever because there was only one employee and the Asheville location was quite busy. And people pick specific cars during rental for a reason. I was supposed to get a Corolla or similar. Instead I got this EcoSport SUV that was bigger than I wanted, and wasn't really in great shape. Beyond that, the dropoff location is really hard to find. It's in an area with lots of other businesses and there's no sign that's visible from the road. If you happen to turn into the right place, there's a very small sign next to the front door that says "AVIS/Budget Group" but otherwise the building looks like a white house next to a Verizon store.

The car was absolutely filthy and most of the staff were rude, even on the phone trying to figure out where in the mall they're located. They didn't give me a printout with my total when I picked up the car and it wasn't emailed to me, turns out they overcharged me.

Car rental insurance in Asheville

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Asheville car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Asheville.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Asheville car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Asheville

  • Asheville has plenty to offer, from a vibrant arts scene to historical buildings, and, of course, the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are a 1-hour drive from the center. Don’t miss out on any of Asheville’s attractions and rent a car to get the most out of your visit. Many of the outer attractions, including the Blue Ridge Mountains, are not available with public transport and a car will give you the most flexibility to explore the city and surroundings in your own time.
  • Asheville Regional Airport features five on-site car hire companies which offer vehicles for all tastes. Follow the signs out of the terminal to their service desks and pick up a car to be in Asheville center in less than half an hour via the I-26 W. The transfer will take almost an hour with public transport, so the most convenient way to start your time is with a hire car directly from the airport. If arriving by train or bus, there are also car hire locations in the city -- for instance, in Tunnel Road or Patton Avenue.
  • Asheville has wonderfully breathtaking scenic routes; however, these routes are also very steep in some places and it is important to shift to a lower gear instead of breaking down on your way. If braking too much, the brakes can overheat and, in the worst case scenario, stop working altogether. Drive slowly through the winding roads in and around Asheville as well, especially in winter, with snow and ice possibly on the streets. Ensure the hire car has winter tires, make sure to adjust your speed, and have some extra snacks and thermos flasks ready in the car in case you get stuck.
  • The I-240 goes right through the heart of Asheville and the I-40 is a major route connecting many places, so these roads can be congested when commuters come into Asheville in the morning between around 7-9am and leave the city between 5-8pm. If going west, the US-23 can be an alternate route, depending on your ultimate goal.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Asheville for £56 or less
  • Book your car hire in Asheville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Asheville are around 49% cheaper than other car types, on average
