1.9 Horrible20 Sep 2021
I arrived exactly at 5 pm (after spending $35 on a Lyft to get there), which is apparently when they close. I had no way of knowing they closed this early- I didn't get any forewarning at all. The guy was still there at the desk but wouldn't help me even after I told him that I didn't have anywhere to go. He said "we open at 9 am" and then walked away from me and left. Not everyone can afford the $250/night airport hotel... And I was just renting a car for that evening and the following day since my flight was at 5 pm the next day. So there was no point in paying for a rental car for half a day (especially was not going to give my business to them after he was so unhelpful...). So, I was stuck in the airport for 24 hrs because this dude couldn't start the computer back up for me.

Helpful staff and easy dropoffRedundant insurance policies between kayak and the actual rental agency, don't offer the kayak one.

Nothing - because you show up, and no one is at the desk and then you are stuck with no car. This is the 2nd time Alamo does it. Learned my lesson - NEVER RENT WITH THEM!If someone was actually there to give me a car, that would be a plus - so I don’t have to be in a city with NO RENTAL CAR. Showing up for work is a plus in my book guys.

Staff was great, easy pickup and drop offI ordered a Cadillac or similar, they didn't have any, so I got a smokey Mazda SUV that I could barely fit into instead, without a price drop or any other options given.

we showed up and got rerouted to Bellingham specifically to rent a car and drive to mercer Island (100 miles) but we got there only to be told they didn't have any cars! even with confirmation and had to take $200 Uber ride!

We reserved an economy car, however none was available, so we were given a larger SUV with no extra charge. Very comfortable ride!Nothing, it was a positive experience all around. The car was nice and clean!!

Nice car to drive around the Northwestern area ofThe care was in very good condition and fun to drive.The check-out process was a bit slow. I am beginning to realize this is standard for the entire car rental industry. It would be nice to get some more help behind the check-out counters.

Budget called last minute to let us know that the vehicle we had reserved for the morning was unavailable. They were unwilling to find us another rental car as we were dependent on it to get to our flight (1.5 hours away) in the morning. Their customer service was terrible, basically telling us that it was our problem and not theirs. We expected more from a trusted company :(

The mini van was what I had reserved, ran well, was full of fuel.It could have been ready on time ( was 50 minutes late) could have been more thoroughly cleaned (candy wrapper on floor, road dust visible in interior). The Assistant manager said she had personally helped clean the vehicle as it was not ready on time. I’m sure she did. I’m also sure I was given a vehicle that had not been thoroughly readied for pick up, which is quite serious given we are in a Global health crises And that Enterprise promises rigorous cleaning of a car given their responsibility to do all possible to reduce contamination between renters.

Nice person at the desk.Drop off in Bellingham WA airport was awkward. Signage is fine until the last 1000 yds., then it becomes virtually invisible in the dark. I circled the airport 3 times. The nice woman at the Enterprise desk (the only person in the entire rental area at 7:15 am BTW) suggested that this invisibility is a common problem; (Fix it, Enterprise, make a new sign) Returning a car is a bit "loose" - park it wherever - but that was fine with me..unless there's a problem later that I don't know about

Bellingham employees are superiorThe type of car reserved was available, the car was clean and the employees were pleasant and helpful.There were minor electrical problems with the car. The seatbelt alert was not working, I inadvertently drove off with my elderly aunt no seatbelts in.

Inform your employeesThe employees at the Bellingham airport were not helpful. I called on two different days and was told both times that they could not find my reservation. The first time they couldn’t find it using my last name so they used my confirmation number then the second time they couldn’t find it using my confirmation number so they used my last name. My main frustration came with their lack of knowledge on where to drop the car off. We took the car 20 miles south to Anacortes to drop the car off at the ferry landing but didn’t know exactly where to leave it parked. The anacortes enterprise office was already closed so we called the Bellingham office and the employee was of no help. He said he’d never heard of dropping the car off at the ferry landing but I had already been told by the anacortes office that we were able to drop it off there for pick up the next day. After getting nowhere on the phone with the employee from Bellingham we ended up finding the right parking lot on our own, 5 minutes before our ferry came. My point of all this is to inform your enterprise employees of your drop off locations. I know this drop off is a different location than the Bellingham employees might be used to but it’s only 20 miles from them so I feel like they should know. The ferry drop off is very convenient and I can see more people utilizing it as time goes on and they should get specific instructions on where exactly to drop the car off to save them stress later.

When we arrived at 3pm, the associate said "We were expecting you at noon. Let's make sure we still have a car available." What? I paid in full and included my flight information on my reservation. I think the time defaulted to 12pm and I didn't know to change it. The car was there and everything was fine, but why would you say that and cause unneeded angst when travel is already so difficult.

I paid for a rental car on line with my debit card. I arrived to pickup the car only to find out that I couldn't because you don't accept debit cards. I want my money returned to my debit account. You accept credit cards only, so why accept payment via debit card?

No cars availableAbsolutely nothing.We reserved a car but there were no cars. I expected to pay $78 but had to spend $210 to rake an uber to the airport rather than the rental car. The person at the desk said they were out of cars and asked corporate to stop allowing cars to be rented but there was no response.

Good rate, good serviceCar available immediately, reasonably fast service. All good.Small car not available so given a larger vehicle but it was a gas guzzler. Staff tried to charge for the upgrade but when we declined they gave it to us becaus3 it was the only car available. Not cool.
