When I arrived to pick up my vehicle, I was told that they had no vehicles available it would be at least two days before they had any. They blamed it on a glitch in their computer system and that they had had this problem before. It seems to me that’s a pretty massive problem they should work out, because I created a major disruption in my schedule and my plans, and Enterprise did nothing but say “sorry, try somewhere else.”

The staff was amazing, thoughtful, and kind. When I needed to extend my rental, they made the process seamless. Thank you!I have no complaints.

The staff there were super friendly and accommodating. The representative I dealt with, Cora, was brand new to the job but handled the whole transaction seamlessly. The return was super easy as well. They even upgraded my vehicle, for no extra charge. I would definitely rent again.

The overall location has a surprisingly upbeat vibe. The Enterprise team works together to provide over the top customer service, and the employees positive attitudes more than makeup up for a smaller location. If you value old fashioned customer service, check them out.

4.8 Okay29 Sep 2019
Decent car and decent drop off experience.Upon pickup in Hartford, the employee was very unwilling to review scratches and damage prior to the trip and there was a lot. Employees were using vulgar raciest language with each other directly in the presence of several customers. Generally, terrible pickup location in an unsafe neighborhood.

Did not pick up car I specifcally explained a Bradley air port area pick up and when I got to Bradley to pick up the car I was told the pick up was in Hartford the rental at the airport cost me $450 dollars more. Very unhappy

Good car, clean, well maintained. Friendly, efficient staff.Not enough staff at the Liebert Road site. When I picked the car up there was a thunderstorm coming up, and one poor fellow had to deal with a line of people impatient to get going, another line of people wanting to return, as well as the necessary inspections of outgoing and incoming vehicles. He should never have had to do this alone. That said, he did a great job considering the circumstances.

Not the bestupgrade for 7/dayThe cat urine smell in the car The cost. I booked the car as a vacation package deal and was not expecting the over 400 charge - I was under the impression the car was a "deal" this did not happen. I will not use a Package deal again.

Horrible customer serviceThe advertised priceI was renting through my company and needed the underage fee to be waived. I called customer service before I arrived at the Budget office to apply my company code, they couldn't assist me and referred me to the nearest office. The rep at the office said an underage charge wouldn't be added, went ahead and swiped my card then realized I was being charged double the price. So I decided not to proceed with the rental, but was still charged an absurd qmount of money.

Budget operationnice enough staff albeit aloof. quick and efficient servicerough crowd renting cars. one couple was fighting in the store. the guy working the counter let them be themselves (probably for his own self preservation). hard location to get to

The car itself was fine, and the attendants at the rental facility were very nice. Talking to representatives on Budget's national call center line to try to make modifications to the rental was a nightmare though.The rental facility was in the middle of nowhere. The facility had a toilet and sink but no toilet paper or hand paper towels. Talk about budget.

They were way overbooked on cars and gave me the wrong size car with a bent rim amd it smelled like cigarretes
1.9 Horrible25 Aug 2021
For some reason I was not in the AVIS system. What I found on Kayak and THOUGHT i booked for approx $700 ended up a standard rental that I had to book at the last moment at the counter for $1297. I have no idea why this Kayak reservation did not go through. I suspect I never received any confirmation other than a mobile text when I booked it. I see the airline ticket and hotel were done around 6/7. Any way I can be credited some of this EXPENSIVE rental?

Avis was fantastic, staff were friendly and helpful. Easy shuttle to and from terminal.

Terribly understaffed, one agent with more than 20 customers waiting more than an hour. Confusion about cars, cars missing keys, awful service.Everything.
2.0 Mediocre14 May 2021
Very friendly and helpful! My problem is with Priceline. They scheduled this at a downtown location, which after I got off the airplane had no way to get to before closing. System shouldn’t have allowed. I selected BDL airport and couldn’t have known what street the car rental places are. Avis worked with me but airport fees made the care over $100 more. I won’t be ordering from Priceline again. I will order from Avis directly. They are great.See above.

The convenience and service I received at the time of pick-up and drop-off. Easy and seamless.I have never rented from Avis before but I have rented a car with other companies prior to this experience. I expected the Avis employee to walk with me to the vehicle and inspect the vehicle prior to me leaving with the vehicle. That did not happen. I was handed the keys and told I was all set. I walked to the car and noticed that it was dirty inside, leftover papers in the trunk and wrappers in the back door. About half way through my 750 mile commute I received a maintenance required notification on the dashboard for the rear seatbelts. I didn’t use the rear seat belts at all during my trip. The notification continued to prompt every time I would start the car. Just didn’t make me feel safe that all services/recalls weren’t serviced prior to letting a customer take the vehicle as a rental, especially with my lengthy trip.

A tale of two locationsSo I mistakenly thought I booked the car for the Avis location close to the airport. Took the Avis shuttle from airport to their facility, and when the agreement screen popped up, the price showed as being close to $600!! I showed the clerk my reservation, with the price I agreed to as being $136, and the clerk said “Oh, I see the problem. Your booking is with the downtown Avis location, not the airport location.” So I used a rideshare app to go the 20 minutes to the proper facility, and got the price I was promised. But - are you freaking KIDDING ME? It costs 4 times as much for the same car, with the same company, if you rent it from the airport location instead? price gouging, anyone??? On the plus side, once I was at the proper location, the transaction was very smooth and the clerk very helpful

Staff was friendly and helpful. Efficient. No problems in picking up car. SmoothCar had handling problems that made it hard to keep car on road evenly. Also we brought car back with way more gas than we left with and there was no recourse for a refund.

Never AgainThe staff was completely rude and unprofessional. The car was filthy-there were even used tissues in the glove box!! We switched out one car for another and it was even more disgusting inside. Also, they made us pay to fill up the tank twice even though they gave it to us with way less than a full tank both times! I will never EVER rent a car through Hertz again.

Car hire excess insurance in Manchester

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 Manchester 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 Manchester.

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 Manchester car rental.
