Pros:

The car drove nicely and didn’t have any critical issues. The originally confirmed price (NOT what we were charged in the end) was wonderful.

Cons:

We were hit with a $436.59 ‘’inner city fee’’ despite dropping off where confirmed by our desk agent in Atlanta. At that meeting as well, we waited over two hours as Thrifty, Hertz, and one additional rental company were all required to wait in the same line for two agents. Finally, our windshield wipers did not work on timed settings. During the hours of rain we experienced from Atlanta to New York City, our only option was to hold down the trigger manually.

Cons:

We booked the car for 8:30am. We got there, the car was not ready. They tried to give us an upgrade of a V8 for a long trip when I booked an economical car. We then had to wait 45 mins for a car to arrive. It had tire pressure issues. They filled with air and said it was fine. We got down the road 5 mins and a warning light came on. We then had to find another Alamo to switch out the car which took another 40 mins as they had to do the paperwork and clean the car. 11am we were finally in the road for a 12 hour trip This is totally unacceptable

Pros:

Manager at airport location was able to accommodate our reservation

Cons:

We were called a week in advance that our pick up location inDC would be closed that we needed to go to union station to pick up rental. However, after getting an Uber to union station, that office was closed too. Then we had to get another Uber to the Ronald Reagan airport. So more Uber drives. Very late start to our drive to Virginia.

Pros:

I ordered a pickup truck and actually was given my choice of the ones they had on site, not just the one selected for me. Staff was friendly, courtesy and very helpful.

Cons:

National does not pick up or drop off customers before or after rental, so you are responsible for arriving here and getting back on your own accord.

I didn't enjoy the car I drove. But that isn't the fault of Kayak.

I wasn’t even able to get a car even though I had a reservation! Your marajuana-smell filled establishment said I had to wait possibly 3 hours to even get a car!!!!!!! Absolutely horrible customer service. I will NEVER rent a car from enterprise again and will tell everyone I know in DC to stay away. *literally people rolling drugs in the waiting area!!!!! Shameful.

Sept 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The car (Chevy Cruze hatchback) got good gas mileage and was easy to drive.

Cons:

Kayak allowed me to book a trip which ended on Labor Day. When I got to the Enterprise location I was then told they were closed on Labor Day and I'd need to pay extra. I got lucky and found street parking so the hassle was only the added cost, but I really didn't appreciate this surprise. Once you add the insanely overpriced insurance, Enterprise is phenomenally expensive now and I won't use them for the foreseeable future. Also, what's with them always trying to force me to take an "upgrade" which is inevitably a gas guzzler? No, that's a downgrade, to pay triple the gas money, guys.
