"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.

Car Renting reviews in Newport Beach

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!

We returned the trailer spotless and pumped out the tanks at the local trailer park. When it was inspected, there was a little in the bottom of the black water tank, but

said it was OK since the trailer was so spotless.
.We got charged 85 dollars anyway. The owner said he told us that we had to hose out and flush the tanks for an hour. Obviously we would have done that if we had known. It's not written anywhere. We paid at the park to dump and then paid them. I wouldn't have mined if they had told us instead of charging us and then have

deny that she said it was OK. There are lots of reviews on Google that say the same thing. I would go somewhere else if you want a pleasant truncation and a shower that isn't revolting.

It was great because the shuttle costs like $50.00 or something and if we rented a car, it was only like $35.00. They don't charge a surcharge. It's very convenient and good value. It was great. The guy was very helpful, very nice to work with. It was very efficient. He knew what he was doing. We really thought it was a great service. It was available with no extra charges for dropping it off in a different location which made it very affordable for us comparing it to a shuttle service. By far, the best value. It's a great deal. It's much more convenient than having a shuttle service because you don't have to stop to drop other people off, you go straight from the airport to your home and then you take the car back the next day so it's extremely convenient. A on everything.

The staff was rude and unprofessional. They tricked us by sending us one final price for which they required my credit card, and then charging my dad's credit card $500 extra.
When I called to complain, the staff was rude, not helpful and hang up the phone on me once.
Definitely the worst car rental experience I have ever had... and I had many in several different countries including countless in the US.

Enterprise is courteous and professional from the check in desk at the airport rental car center (liked the old system better but the airport changed it - now all rentals go through the center; you are bussed from the airport to the center and back to the airport when you go back home) to the people who let you pick out the car.

we had a brand new Corolla with a back up camera. We requested one this time but they did not have one so they gave us a Camry for no extra charge. Nice people all around. They were very speedy when we went to turn the car in also. They usually have one of the lowest costs also.

They are easy to deal with. I had spoken to them on the phone, by text and by email. I test drove cars at other dealers so I had some idea of what I wanted. I went to Enterprise and in 4 hours I had made my selection, filled out the paperwork and was on my way home. They let me take as long as I wanted to decide and gave me more for my trade in than it was worth on

Blue Book. They also arranged financing at a better interest rate than my own credit union. This is my second auto purchase from Enterprise.

They had a car it was easy to make reservations. The car was ready when they said it was going to be ready. It was a new car and it's very clean. They're very easy to work with at the desk, you can pick up the car and return the car. I would use them again in the future.
