Enterprise Rent-A-Car was founded in 1957. It is a household name when it comes to rental cars. According to Forbes, they are one of the largest privately held companies in the world. According to Business Weekly magazine, Enterprise has been voted as one of the top places to start a career. A lot of young professionals get their start at one of the Enterprise locations throughout the country. By 2005, JD Power and Associates had recognized Enterprise seven times for its outstanding customer service, indicating that Enterprise really rolls out the red carpet for customers. Enterprise has a car sharing business that lets customers use a car for a short period of time during a day. This differs from its car rental services, as car sharing customers pay an hourly fee to use a car.

The Good

  • High availability
  • Average industry prices
  • On-site fuel discount

Economy Price Range

Economy rentals with Enterprise prices range from medium to high depending on the rental location. The prices are competitive when compared with the average rental car company. Enterprise also offers cheap, very inexpensive one-time deals that can help customers save money.

Luxury Price Range

Enterprise's luxury rentals range from medium to high depending on the rental location. These prices are in the normal range for many rental car companies who offer luxury vehicles. Some major car rental companies are more expensive in price, making Enterprise luxury rentals more affordable than a good portion of their competitors.

States Available

Enterprise can be found in all 50 states. They have one of the highest number of locations in the industry, with more than 5,500 offices located within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population.

Airports Locations

With rental counters at most major airports throughout North America, Enterprise is available in most major airports in the U.S. and Canada. With so many locations, it makes it very convenient for customers to plan trips and use Enterprise's services.

One unique service Enterprise offers that customers won't find everywhere else is their complimentary pickup/drop-off service for renters who want to leave their car at home, or don't have a way to get to the rental agency. This is especially convenient for customers who are renting at airports.

On-Site Fuel Discount

Enterprise offers customers an on-site fuel discount. Customers can choose to prepay for their fuel, which is calculated by the local price per gallon, minus Enterprise's discount. This is unique, because most rental companies do not offer on-site fuel discounts.

The Bad

  • No instant return
  • No online check-in
  • Limited roadside assistance

Instant Return

According to their policies, Enterprise does not offer any instant return services. Customers have to return their car or vehicle in person. This may mean waiting in line to return your car. Some major competitors of the same size offer instant return for general customers and others offer instant return through their membership rewards program. Enterprise, being the largest rental car company to date, would do well to offer this option to remain competitive.

Online Check-In

Enterprise does not offer an online check-in option. However, at an airport, customers have the option of returning their car after business hours. If a customer has to return their car before or after business hours, each location has a set of procedures for dealing with after hour returns.

Roadside Assistance

Enterprise offers renters roadside assistance protection that covers flat tire, jump start, lockout service, fuel delivery, and key replacement. The downside is that Enterprise offers roadside assistance protection only at select locations.

The Bottom Line

Enterprise's brand name alone makes it worthy of consideration, but their pickup/drop-off service for economy renters takes it above and beyond the competition. Their rental rates are average in the industry. Enterprise's availability and on-site fuel discount help to make using Enterprise more competitive. Customers are recommended to check Enterprise's website for any current deals that may be running, since they offer cheaper one-time-only rates. Overall, Enterprise is a viable rental option.

On February 9,2020 I was involved in a car accident. Enterprise in Villa Rica on Montgomery Street were amazing ! There are lots of things to do once you have an accident, one part I did not have to worry about is my rental situation while my vehicle was being repaired. Delaney M. her staff were fabulous the entire time my vehicle was being repaired and took great steps to ensure I was satisfied and knew what to expect during the process . I appreciate them and the fact they made a bad situation easier to handle because of their great customer service!

Enterprise has always rented me the best cars for the best price. It has happened where they suddenly cannot provide me with the car they said they would and they provide me with another. Instead of a compact car I got a mustang, and while that may seem like an upgrade, I needed the compact car for the trip. This was not a big deal however so all is good.

I rented from Enterprise and when I was returning the vehicle, I had just mentioned that I had thought we reserved a larger SUV than what we got. I was not unhappy with what we got, we still had a great trip, I had just expected something different at the beginning. The agent listened and even though it was absolutely not necessary because we were pleased with the vehicle, he gave us a small discount on our next rental. Was very surprised and impressed.

We have used Enterprise several times in the past couple of years. We love that we can look online and decide what type of truck or van we want to rent and that they will pick us up from home and drop us off when we return the vehicle. They offer a great military discount to help us save on costs. And we have even fallen for the upgraded vehicle after the kids fell in love with the big Expedition!

I was a Enterprise Loyalty member for years and always thought their service was great. Until recently. I recently rented a vehicle from the San Deigo Airport office. The attendant did not do a walk around with me or should be reports of damage. When I asked her about the chip in the windshield that was noticeable, she said it was okay because it was within the limits. I foolishly got into the car and drove away. When I returned the car they claimed I did the damage to the windshield and other parts of the car. When I went to file a complaint to refute the accusations they kept passing me off to other people who then passed me off to my original person. It was chaos. Now I am dealing with a month long damage complaint which they will not give me information or my insurance company to cover. I can only describe it as apathetic, convoluted, and terrible. I am now a Hertz Gold member and my life of rentals has been much better. I recommend the switch because Enterprise is terrible.
