Great JEEPI liked the size, comfort, ease of putting the back seats down, handling in wind, quickness of heat. The Enterprise people were great- the pickup and drop-off of the car was quick and easy. They even offered us a free ride in town when we dropped off the car.There are no USB ports in the Jeep!

Reserved a car - but they didn't have it or any otArrived at san diego but they didn't have the car or any other car. Called enterprise- and they agreed to provide me with a car only if I pay 300% higher price! Called also priceline that agreed to return the money but anyhow- it was a free cancellation order.... Bottom line- couldn't get a car (tried even using other station of enterprise). I got a car from Avis....

The service at both counters was great. The Nissan Rouge is a fine car The price was reasonable considering the COVID-19 demands my only complaint is that the rental car was black and the AC had a hard time keeping pace with the heat. We had day time temps above 112. I think you should use light-color cars in the desert southwest wish I could attach the snapshot of the melted plastic glass from it sitting in the cup-holder in the afternoon Jerry

The staff was really friendly and helpful. They went above my expectations to make my experience memorable.They forgot to show me where the button was to open the gas tank. But I was able to find it after some digging. Not a problem at all.

No place to park your car. In a dealership and really slow service. Our car was not ready when we arrived.

We rented a Toyota Camry and traveled well over 1000 miles. The rental process was smooth and the car was comfortable.The car wasn't vacuumed well when we picked it up. We had to send it back to be cleaned.

Nothing about the company. The car got decent gas mileage. It was dinged up when I got it so I took pics to make sure they didn't try to say I did it. They just hand you the keys without any inspection.They are scam artists. Like used car salesmen, you come back and they tell you that you have to pay MORE! I paid for a full tank of gas when I already filled up the tank of gas when I returned it!!! And in CA, gas isn't cheap!

Didn't have the car we reservedNothingWhen we arrived to rent the car we reserved online, they told us they didn't have the car and we would have to upgrade "three tiers" and pay for the upgrade. We walked out and rented a car at Enterprise.

Not impressed with my experience.The dropoff process was extremely quick, which was awesome considering we had to catch a flight.The process of picking up an existing reservation was light buying a used car. There were so many sales ploys and gimmicks designed to make you spend "just a little more" over and over again. Yes, I know it's normal to be given the option to upgrade, but to be hounded about each option is unreasonable. The best was the option to "prepay" for gas. We were told that gas was very expensive around the airport, and that returning without a full tank would cost us $10/gallon. We could prepay for our gas, before our return, but that would involve paying for an entire tank of gas. So, unless you returned the car on empty, you're paying for gas that you didn't use. No thanks. We filled up before we got to the airport...for a very reasonable rate...and returned the car. I shouldn't feel like I'm getting ripped off when I pick up a rental car. The guy we worked with was very nice, but by the time we left, we felt like he was just trying to take advantage of us. It's probably not his fault...the companies policy forces him to ask these questions/offer these options. Perhaps all companies play this game. I will, likely, try a different company for my next rental.

PICKUP TIME MISSEDGood customer service and provided updates.Reserved car for pickup at 11:00 am from a Hertz location inside a dealership. I arrived an hour early at car dealership and was told that a car was not available at this time. I waited until 11:00 am and asked when the car would be available. I was told that car was not available until 1:00 pm. I left the dealership and was able to get by on public transportation, running errands. As I was nearing the dealership, I received a call that said the car would not be available until 2:00 pm. I ran another errand and eventually picked the car up around 2:00 pm.

Car rental chaosThe drop off location in Elk Grove, Ca. The sales woman tried her best to assist us and give us good information.The El Cajon pick up location. The sales woman we first spoke with was either very new or could not figure out how kayak worked with budget. My 275 dollar rental was turned into a 920 dollar rental and was charged to my credit card. Attempting to fix the mistake she charged me another 315 dollars trying to make a new reservation. In the end it seems to be corrected but my wife and I spent hours in the budget store and on the phone with budget customer service. In addition my credit card was unusable for the rest of our vacation due to over 1000.00 of erroneous charges.
