"Very unsatisfactory, Extra charges that were not explained ahead of time, ex. I originally thought I needed the car but was stuck in a snow storm and needed it a" couple days longer. Was charged for insurance I declined, which added an extra $110.60 to the bill. Three people waited on me and not a single one knew what they were doing. Very unhappy.

"Horrible company. Terrible customer service. Showed up with more expensive car and told me that was all they had. Yeah. right. I had a mid-size reserved so you" can see where I might feel a bit weird. I gave them my card to pay for the car and they ended up taking all of the money in my bank with that same card. They maxed it out till I had nothing left! I called about this, spoke to a man and was treated poorly. I was told there was nothing anyone can do blah, blah, blah... Worse...Did nothing to get me my money back the entire time I had the vehicle. Over 4 days! The car dripped a massive amount of oil in my garage which I had to clean up with a bunch of newspaper. I have never seen so much oil drip from a car just sitting in the garage before. Not that great of a vehicle either. Oh, they did show up on time though!

Three weeks ago I reserved a 15 passenger van,

Newport Beach Rental Car Companies Provider Name Locked
, called me 2/3/2015 to verify I would be picking up a 15 passenger van on 2/4/2015 and I confirmed I would be there between 12:30 and 1pm. At 11:15am on the 4th he called again and said the 15 passenger van would not be available due to the "CORPORATE" office had picked it up this morning and sold it. He said all he had was a 12 Passenger van. I told him that was not acceptable due to the fact I was traveling with 5 adults to Georgia to attend a wedding and needed the extra room to accommodate the luggage required to attend multiple functions over the weekend. He said he would get back to me. About 30 minutes later

called me to tell me the 15 passenger van, that I reserved 3 weeks ago and saw on the lot the day before with my own eyes, was NOT going to be available. She offered me a second vehicle at no charge but I did not intend to caravan to Georgia. I was over a barrel, she told me she would charge me half the rate, if it were free I would still be an unsatisfied ENTERPRISE RENT-A-CAR customer, but I had no choice since I'm leaving early Thursday morning. When I arrived

was very professional but voiced his opinion that I didn't really need a 15 passenger van with 6 people, that wasn't his to decide. We inspected the outside for minor damages and notated them on the contract, we did not inspect the inside, that is until I got home and started to load-up. It was a disgrace, carpets and upholstery were badly stained. Can you tell I'm not a satisfied customer of ENTERPRISE RENT-A-CAR.

They were friendly they came out and identified themselves. They walked me around the rental, customer service was great and very professional. There were no issues with the vehicle what so ever. This is a highly recommend local business I will continue to use them.

Got the vehicle I needed for the weekend. Car was clean and ready when I arrived. While I had to wait for a transaction to be completed in front of me, I was acknowledged on entry. My paperwork was ready when I got to the counter and I was in and out in 15 minutes with the vehicle to make my weekend with friends and family very pleasant.

Great EXCEPT rental companies continue to raise their insurance rates. I like using the third party insurance on the rental but rates are going way up!!

Easy....Easy...Easy...I booked online. When I got there everything was ready to go. They are open 24 hours/day. They had partial insurance, to cover any minor issues and cover my personal insurance deductable-which I took. The partial insurance rental was nominal fee. I was very pleased and would rent from them again.

This was the worst car rental experience I've ever had. The desk agent at the location was extremely aggressive in trying to up sell me the insurance options, even when I told her that I had adequate insurance between my auto insurance policy and my credit card. I finally told her that I had had a long day traveling, and wanted to get a car and leave. She then handed me a few papers. She didn't have me sign anything like most rental car agents do. She turned to the next person in line and said "Next, please". I had to interrupt her and ask where I should go to get the car. The car we rented was in poor condition with lots of dings. It had over 51,000 miles on it. We selected it because it was the only Corolla with in-state license plates, which we thought was important. When it was time to return the car and fly home, we used the instructions to the return location that had been handed to us by the car rental company shuttle driver. It turned out that the rental return location had been moved. After about 15 minutes of driving around looking for the location, we flagged down an Enterprise Rental shuttle. The driver directed us to the new Dollar return location. When we told the staff at Dollar about our difficulty finding their new location, they just shrugged and said that we must have gotten the old instructions. These folks don't care about their customers. When I got home, I submitted a very negative review on the

website. They have made no effort to contact me. I won't rent from

again.

Everything about my encounter was horrible. When I went to rent a truck to move this summer, I had to wait for over 2 hours to be helped. The associate that helped me was gruff and not at all concerned with explaining different costs and services to go along with the moving truck. I called ahead and asked about return, and they said as long as the keys were in the return box by a certain time and the truck was parked in the lot it would be on time. However, I was charged for a WEEK LATE late fee, which took over a month to sort out. Then, after it had been sorted out, they continued to hound me with automated late charge phone calls for another month! Awful, awful experience. AVOID!
