I was not explained the détails of the invoice. When asked, there was an extra charge which need to be correct. Pickup and drop off was easy.

I made a mistake and booked the car 1 day too early and when we went to pick it up, it had been rented to someone else. So we had to go back to the airport to get a car from Alamo

Good service, dirty carCar worked really well. Customer service at drop off was excellent.Car interior was worst I ever had. Ketchup on steering wheel, dirty seats and console. Dead bugs. Also hidden charge discovered when dropping off. Agent at time fixed it so that ended up ok.

DisappointedThe interior of the car was not detailed, it had not been cleaned. There was mud smeared on the bottom passenger door panel, potato chips on the floor and under the drivers seat. There was an old receipt from the dollar store, the dash was very dusty and hadn't been cleaned, the media screen had fingerprints all over it and the drivers door panel had dirt smudged on it. I had to clean the car myself for my passengers. Not what I expected from Enterprise.

Fantastic serviceStaff were really friendly and organized. We were in and out in no time and there was no pressure at all to buy extra coverage etc., just a polite ask. When lost luggage delayed our vehicle pick up they were helpful and understanding. We got a great recommendation for a nearby restaurant, and when it was time to drop the vehicle, they happily helped us resolve our luggage storage issues until it was time to head to the airport. Best experience I've ever had renting a car and a great deal.The van we got was comically basic...the rear passenger windows didn't even open! However it was clean, it got us where we needed to go and we had no issues with it so we really have nothing to complain about.

Great car, easy to drop off and pick up. No hidden feesThe cost of the car wasn't as cheap as I'd hoped, but it was cheaper than any other site I looked at without discount. The car was very clean and was great on gas. There were no additional fees after returning the car, and the staff was friendly. I had no problems with this rentalThe distance of the hertz rental place from the airport meant that I had to pay for a $70 cab ride, but it was still cheaper than renting from the airport.

be careful when making reservationsII asked for an airport pickup but the reservation was made at an off airport location resulting in my paying double the price.
9.2 Excellent11 Jul 2017
Booked on line and everything was ready to go when we picked it up.The fact that if we picked up the car at the airport when we landed it would have cost us much more than picking it up in Halifax. Should be the same rate.

My rental was canceled after I advise Avis my flight was delayed. I will extremely surprise if I ever rent a car from that compagnie again. I have absolutely no control on flight delay or canceled. Real Langford

Pleasant Avis ride in beautiful Cape BretonThe Taurus we rented was in great shape, clean and ready to go as promised. The manager at the Avis outlet in Halifax was courteous and helpful. Though I rented with Kayak, he found my Avid Preferred number in the system and saved me a little more. We immediately drove up to Cape Breton and all over the island. Very enjoyable trip, and the car served its purpose quite well. If we visit NS again, I will certainly rent with this agency.Not the franchise's fault, but the road construction on Grafton Street in Halifax, not to mention all over downtown was horrible. This is on the City, with a seeming lack of proper traffic flow analysis before they'd shut down streets. Total lack of signage too.

The car was clean and in good condition; the counter help at pick up in Halifax was very friendly and very informative; the drop off at the airport was quick and easy.
8.8 Excellent16 Sep 2016
They were conveniently located in the city center. The agent was by himself when we arrived soon after they opened, but he was very helpful. Perhaps we were scheduled to drop off at the airport location, we were super-upgraded for free.Nothing really. If we must, the upgrade was a bit too luxurious (we'd requested an economy car, as it was just two of us with not much luggage, but got a Cherokee. Hmm, extra gas...)

Car hire excess insurance in Dartmouth

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Dartmouth car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Dartmouth.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess 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 Dartmouth car rental.
