Great price
Pros: We found a great price for a car rental from Portland, Maine to Manchester, NH. We also LOVED our Elantra - great gas mileage, and the trunk fit all four of our suitcases.

Pros: Car was nice for our trip. Did almost 1000 miles on car and no issues with it mechanically. Gas mileage was great.\ Agent on turnin took my word for low fuel in car, not full tank as paperwork showed.
Cons: The agent did not explain the toll road guizmo behind the rear view mirror. Paid first time cash as didn't know had a ez pass, like fast pass in California. Gas mileage was not correct on form when picked up car.

Experience renting from the lowest price bracket
Pros: Affordable, flexible, and available when I needed it. If I needed a car for a couple days, I'd do exactly the same thing again.
Cons: I have no big complaints, returning the car was slightly confusing but not really an issue.

Manager's Special
Pros: First, the vehicle - a Kia Sportage AWD, super-nice that, somehow, ended up with 440 miles in a 4-day visit, 10.9 gallons to fill? ECO mode is something else on this. I thought I'd hired a compact, but, that was the special, at the price quoted on KAYAK for the compact, so I was pretty delighted by that. Actually a bit stupefied for a moment when he stated it was the same price; I had to ask the agent to clarify, and, still in disbelief, asked what the upgrade fee was yet a third time. I think it pleased him a little to smile so broadly and hand over the keys. We made several short trips around the Portland area and down to NH, just a great ride, handled well enough on the swoopy back roads between Sebago and Exeter, and the great visibility was a joy while we enjoyed the sights along the way. Check-in was well-designed, perhaps the best I've ever seen. Greenville/Spartanburg (S.C., if you didn't know) has a similar setup and I'd thought it clever there. Under a 5-minute walk from baggage claim to the rental service counter. After a brief wait, like 15 minutes, we were getting checked in and shortly, off on our trip! We arrived about noon, and the queue was not terrible at all. I did not know that Hertz and Dollar were a joint outfit, so, you might go a while between "Dollar" signs, but Hertz had signs up every ten yards or so, follow the yellow brick road, it works out. Likewise, navigating the parking garage to your hire.
Cons: Well, no wait would be better I suppose, not that I'm complaining, 'cause I'm not. The parking garage is awfully dark, don't you think? That's about it, I really couldn't be happier

Pick up location was closed after pick up time
Cons: They never should have allowed the reservation to be made. I requested a 6pm pick-up time and the location closes at 6pm! I had to get a car at another location and go through the hassel of getting a refund on the first car. Not fun!

I was charged extra above quote on my confirmation
Pros: Car was fine. No problems.
Cons: I was charged above the quoted price that was on my confirmation. The rep told me that this was airport taxes. Apparently, the booking was made for an off-site location rather than the airport, even though I was flying into the airport. I would not get a rental from this site again because of that. They should honor the quoted price.

Pretty good, but please let my spouse also drive!
Pros: Pretty smooth overall. Nice car, too, for the price.
Cons: I didn't like that Hertz requires you to be part of their free membership to let a spouse become a driver for free. We were using Hertz for the first time and no mention was made of how we could sign up for the membership plan now so that my spouse could also drive the car for no extra charge. This should be offered regardless of membership. Please change your policy, Hertz.

2 Nov 2016
Cons: I feel like bait and switch scam.. The car costs $110 more than what my booking said it would cost (Conf # 1226751128 at $309). Tried giving me a car in the class I ordered, but agent then said that car neeeded maintenance and he would give me a free upgrade. That's when things began to derailed. Agent stated I made reservatoins with their downtown office; even though, I requested aiport (PWM) pickup when making the reservation. The address was 1 Marginal Way on the confirmation. I have no idea where that address is - airport or city? Agent told me I would have to pay the difference ($110) which I agreed to pay as I didn't have time to argue with the agent. I still feel I was taken advantage of and will probably carefully consider before making another Enterprise reservation thru Kayak.

Great service!
Pros: They were very personable and matched my price from another company. The car was exactly what we needed and it was in excellent condition. I had never driven an Infinity before, so that was another plus. They introduced us to the type of people we continued to meet in Maine: very friendly and courteous. Would use them again without question.
Cons: I cannot think of anything that was a problem.

Pros: Drop-off at the Boston airport site was excellent. Well organized, quick and the bus shuttle was great!
Cons: When I picked the car up, I thought I was picking it up at the airport, come to find out when I got there, the site I chose was actually in downtown Portland. Had to take an Uber to that site to pick up the car. That was disappointing! It was labeled as (at airport) on the website...that needs to be changed. Otherwise, drop-off in Boston was excellent!
