BEAMED UP TO THE ENTERPRISE FOR STELLAR SERVICE
Pros: The service was excellent. The staff was an incredible team. Antoine is amazing. He is so friendly, yet professional, taking care of multiple customers, yet, not one of them could feel neglected. He used teamwork, asking others to finish customer' service he had set up in computer. I looked up his name, online; it means; "from Latin Antonius) that could mean beyond praise or highly praise-worthy. " I regret, I did not get the name, of the gentleman who took me to my car, and finished my contract. He to was friendly and efficient. Then, when I returned my car, Enterprise hooked me up, with a ride home. Mr. Caesar was very nice to converse with, on the way home. Thanks Enterprise!

Pros: The staff were friendly, and the car we got was a great car (I'm not into cars at all, so it is rare for me to say that). We were going to return our rental about an hour past the time we picked it up. Technically that counts as a third day, but the staff member said she would save us some money and charge us for only two days — we certainly appreciated that.
Cons: The wait time was a bit long, but I think they were especially busy that day because of a storm the day before that had damaged a number of cars in the area. But they were staying cool and friendly under pressure, so not much for me to complain about.

Wonderful experience.
Pros: Pickup, dropopff easy. Car worked fine. It also helped that small airport experience meant I didn't have to shuttle somewhere way off somewhere in the distance. That was a big plus, but says less about the company than the fact that the Harrisburg, PA airport is small.
7.2 Good

Pros: I like the vehicle I had and the convenience of pick up at one airport and drop off at another airport.
Cons: The exterior of the car was slightly dirty. There were only 2 cars to choose from but lucky I really liked the car I received.

Hidden costs?
Cons: According to Hertz in PA they informed me that kayak doesn't take all the taxes at the time of payment. I owed almost another $100 in taxes at the airport. Not cool!

More expensive than planned
Pros: The car was really nice, clean and well equipped.
Cons: I didn't know that the vehicle was not at the airport so I had to pay $40 for a cab to take me to the rental car place. had to change my reservation to drop off at the airport and was then told that I had limited miles so I got charged a lot more than I was expecting. I also couldn't figure out the push button start on the car!

Top tips for hiring a car in Harrisburg

  • Harrisburg is like many U.S. cities in that it was designed and planned for automobiles. Public transportation in the city is quite lacking and their service is slow and inefficient. If you want to get around town efficiently, a personal vehicle is definitely the best option. For example, the 5-minute drive that it takes to get from downtown Harrisburg to the State Museum of Pennsylvania quickly turns into a 25-minute ride on public transport.
  • Those arriving at Harrisburg International Airport who are looking to rent a vehicle right after landing will find that the hire car desks are conveniently located in the Ground Floor Transportation Center of the airport’s main terminal.
  • Though Harrisburg is not that far north, it still experiences the occasional winter storms. Ice and snow can quickly blanket roads and drivers should be prepared for wintery weather if they visit during the colder months of the year. Drivers not confident in their ability to handle the snow and ice should make sure to drive extra carefully and to check the weather regularly so that a storm doesn’t catch them by surprise.
  • Drivers can expect the morning rush hour in Harrisburg to pick up at around 6:30 a.m. during the workweek and to finish up by around 9:00 a.m. As for the afternoon rush hour, it is a bit less severe and starts at about 4:00 p.m. and quiets down shortly after 6:00 p.m. The Capital Beltway is one of the more bogged-down avenues in Harrisburg, particularly as it crosses the Susquehanna River.
  • Book your car hire in Harrisburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Harrisburg are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average
