Quick drop off and pick up, easy to extend the rental as I needed.The price! I think $42-$45/day for a Fordecoa was a bit pricey.

The woman who assisted me was so pleasant and went out of her way to get me the exact car I wanted and have it ready when I needed it. She was friendly and made me feel my safety was a priority in these difficult times. I wish I knew her name to explicitly thank her. Great experience overall.Not a thing.

Willingness to assist when there is an issue with getting the car reserved.They canceled my reservation since i did not arrive at 2pm. I would suggest in the furure, an email or call to confirm if i still want the reservation instead of canceling without notice would help for a better experience. Because of this, we were forced to go to another location.

Reeked cigarette smoke and trunk permanently lockedGood quality but filthy vehicleReeked of cigarettes and cigars after a week of open window, disinfect spray. Major airport and garage security issue. Trunk permanently locked. Renting group didn’t even check at rental! Couldn’t be opened for security check.

Arrive at time of pickupWorked out well with driving a minivan.I arrived 40 minutes after the time I designated for pickup, believing the credit card I provided secured the car. It was given away when I arrived. The manager huddled in the corner working to find another van for us. Luckily he found another van at another location that we were able to drive and pickup the van.

Exceptional experience!I have rented from this office many times for work and they have always been professional and accommodating. Although they're often very busy, they always greet me with a smile and help me as quickly as possible. The cars are always clean and relatively new. I would recommend this Enterprise location to anyone!!!

The staff member who helped me was great - very professional and helpful.The office was dirty and needed a lot of maintenance. The staff member who was helping me was wonderful but the rest of the staff were being loud and goofing off - making it difficult to hear and very distracting.

Agent Didn't let me get the Rental CarRate.My license had an alphabet T on it suggesting that it is temporary. While I did not have a problem renting cars for the last 10 years, NextCar didn't let rent the car.

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 Ellicott City 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 Ellicott City.
