Excellent staff. Efficient 8-min shuttle.
Pros: 1. Off-airport location needs GPS guidance. 2. Towing not included.
Cons: Great staff. Good value.
2.0 Poor
21 Oct 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I am very upset because they did not have a car when I arrived, and when I had previously tried to contact them because my flight was delayed no one picked up. I had to rent from a different place for significantly more. I would never rent through them or kayak again as a result.

Bargain Basement (Basement is the operative word)
Pros: I liked the low price that I booked for a 6-day rental. Also, the shuttle was relatively modern, clean, and comfortable.
Cons: Signage at the airport was inadequate. I had to ask a competitor how to find the shuttle to the offsite lot.j The distance to the lot from the airport is not insignificant. The lot is located in a run-down section, surrounded by a hurricane fence, and has as its office a junky old portable trailer. Not too nice. The staff seem unable to keep up with returns and new customers. Wait times for shuttle pick up as well as for checking out a car seemed long. After waiting 15 minutes or so to get to the counter, there was no option in full size vehicles when I was picking up my car. Only a '14 Impala (old style). I detest the old style Chevy Impala because I prefer to drive something comfortable, well made, and at least a little fun. The new style is great. The old Impala is none of those things. The only other option offered was a Kia Soul. So I took the Impala. However, when I got in it reeked of cigarette smoke. It also looked like it had been wrecked and repaired (poor panel fit, evidence of repaint). I had also noticed that I had been overcharged by $98. So I went back in and requested something else (which they did not argue about). They offered to clean up a recently returned Altima (a much better drive) and they fixed the overcharge on the contract. This car was in at least as rough of shape with evidence of rear-ending another vehicle (pinch points with rust near the headlight corners), not to mention the finish looked like it had been driven through a series of barbed wire fences. The wheel covers were chipped and cracked. The interior was filthy and the interior windshield and window glass was disgusting. These are all apparently very used vehicles (35,000 - 45,000 miles) with hard miles on them. So I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" stands. Very disappointing, though.

Go anywhere else
Pros: The car was clean
Cons: Not in the airport terminal as advertised on kayak. Had to take a 15 min shuttle to the car pick up. Employee didn't go over hidden costs, I signed for waiving of insurance and road side assistance, or so I thought Price, with hidden costs, was double the quoted price on kayak. When I mentioned it to them, they pulled out the form I signed and said are these your initials, they were but that was not what I was told when I initialed that item. Complete rip off. I spent the amount of money on an economy car that I could of on a mid sized car at a reputable car dealer for a day. I don't recommend this place at all

23 Sep 2016
Pros: The shuttle was timely and courteous. The time it took to rent the car was very quick. The car was better than expected and all of the staff were very kind
Cons: It was quite a ways from the airport but there is a 24 hour shuttle so it was convenient still
10.0 Excellent
16 Nov 2016
Pros: Easy pick up and return. Even though the rental place was off-site, it was relatively easy to get to the shuttle station and the shuttle bus ran quickly from the rental place back to the airport.

Great Value
Pros: Took my rental 2,300 miles and including the rental fees for the week spent only $300 on transportation. Can't beat that especially when you usually drive a jeep.
5.2 OK
21 Oct 2015
Deceptive rates
Cons: This office attempts to add extra fees for "roadside assistance" and a full tank of gas that can significantly increase the base rate that you reserve online. Waits at pickup and dropoff are long; each customer interaction takes much longer than it should, because of these deceptive practices. Buyer beware!

They Canceled my booking and charged me a discount
Cons: I booked on Kayak easily. I had plane delays and was not able to get to Payless until 6pm when on Kayak they said pick up was noon. I did not see anywhere that there was a dead line to pick up or my booking would be canceled. I understand it was later than usual but I did not think to call. I was more concerned with getting flights and missing my connections because of airline delays. I am stuck with no car if I decline and go back to airport to rent another car at a higher rate. I feel I was shafted by Payless

2 Nov 2015
Incredibly inexpensive, smooth, friendly, and easy
Pros: Despite being a little ways away from the airport, this couldn't have been a more pleasurable experience. Incredibly low price, reservation made easily the day of by kayak online, friendly service throughout, nice, clean car... would absolutely use them again.

Excellent service
Pros: The staff at both locations was awesome. Pick-up and drop off were excellent. They were quick,efficient, and kind, offering water when we picked up the car on a super hot day. It was a great overall experience.
Cons: The car smelled like cigarettes, but covered up with a cleaning smell. The car only had 13, 000 miles on it, but it really lacked any pick-up. I guess that's what you can expect with an economy car. Overall it was a good experience and I would go with Enterprise again.

Call and confirm and print coupons
Pros: They gave us an awesome car at a great price and threw in the gas in the car and satellite radio. However they didn't just give me the upgrade for free even though I'm fairly certain they had no other car ready to give us.
Cons: I had planned to pick it up at 8am Friday. I called to confirm the details of my reservation and they informed me that They do not allow pickups before 10am. I ended up paying a little more to get it the day before. I also inquired about a deal I received via email and they did not give it to me bc I didn't print it out.

Excellent experience
Pros: I incorrectly made our reservations online for NON airport pickup, but when we went to pick up our car at the airport, the young man was very gracious and helpful in switching our car to airport pick up and drop off. Same good price as I'd gotten online. They gave us the choice of a sedan or a small SUV, which we appreciated. We took the Ford Escape, and it was great. Very convenient pick up and drop off right at the airport. No shuttle necessary.

Very Upset with KYAK, Not ENTERPRISE
Pros: Enterprise employees at the Indianapolis Airport were very helpful in helping me with renting a car (w/no record of a reservation handled through KYAK).
Cons: After arriving @ the Indianapolis Airport ENTERPRISE, I was really frustrated to learn that they had no record of my car rental through KYAK. I had made a copy of my car rental (through KYAK) booking/confirmation agreement - I was amazed to learn that my KYAK car rental had been booked an ENTERPRISE office in some distant city /suburb around INDIANAPOLIS that none of us were familiar with. That is why the rate agreed upon during my KYAK reservation was at least $100 cheaper than the IND Airport price. I will not use KYAK for future reservations.

Paid for roadside assistance and didn't get it.
Pros: The van was nice and clean. We fit comfortably and it drove nice.
Cons: We paid extra for roadside assistance and when we hit a coyote no one came and they made us drove over 200 miles to get a replacement to not have a suitable replacement. Not happy with enterprise at all.

Unclear cost to rent
Pros: Cleanliness is good. Quick check in and out.
Cons: Strong smell in the car, I had to leave the windows open for 2 hours before the smell was gone. Booked the car for 6 days for a project. Asked the lady if I can return the car early for less cost if project finishes early. She said yes. Returned it on day 4. Total amount charged was just $15 lower than the quoted bill. The receipt said there was a minimum charge, which I was not told of at the time of check in.

Good value
Pros: Car was clean, ready and fueled when I arrived. Great fuel economy and great price. Turning the car in was a total breeze and made getting to the airport expedient.
Cons: Spent way too long at the counter trying to pick up the vehicle. Reservations need a separate counter or clerk so that the lines don't get held up by other customers. And the upselling is a little unnecessary.
9.2 Excellent
1 Dec 2016
Pros: Most stuff
Cons: Tires were more worn than I am used to on a rental car. But maybe it was due to have them changed or, at least, rotated after my rental and I just caught the last uses of the tire.

John Mellencamp
Cons: Car was not noticeably very dirty but in the console between the seats was a contract from the last renter and in the glove box a contract from the renter before that. In the CD player was a John Mellencamp CD. Guess that was just a welcome to Indiana.

Cons: My reservation was cancelled because Alamo would not put me in my paid for mid size car.

No stars on this reservation.

13 Oct 2015
Pros: Clean car.
Cons: Hertz is WAY overpriced. I will NEVER rent from them again. They cut costs by not employing enough costumer service reps to attend to customers for check out. Time is money, and I do not have the time to wait 2 hrs after I get to an airport for an overpriced rental. They don't flex their pricing and you can generally expect to pay over 25% additional costs in fees and taxes (not included in the agreed costs). My bill was $280 and I paid $382 with no added insurance... over $100 in taxes & fees! Overall: UNSATISFACTORY.
