An SUV will equip travelers with the essential stability on the road without being too bulky. If you’re driving with family and need more space, a minivan is also a good option.

Pros:The staff was amazing, thoughtful, and kind. When I needed to extend my rental, they made the process seamless. Thank you!
Cons:I have no complaints.
Pros:friendly and accommodating staff
Cons:the car's smells really bad..like someone who rented it before smoked a weed inside the car...terrible!!!!
Pros:The process for both pick-up and drop-off were super quick and easy, despite obvious limitations with covid.
Cons:They left me in the dark about my refund for my deposit for using a debit card at pick-up. Still unsure if and when I’ll be receiving it back.
Pros:Staff was very helpful and friendly. They quickly realized the issue caused by booking through Kayak which was they identified an Enterprise 20 miles from the airport at a different price. We still had to pay higher price due to a tax difference.
Cons:Kayak listed car rental places that were not near BDL airport so the competitive pricing was misleading. The Enterprise by BDL had to re-book our car rental at a higher price. We could have paid less through Alamo. The car we got was out alignment and I noticed the yellow dash indicator.
8.4 Very Good
Pros:Staff was friendly and easy to work with
Cons:The car seemed old and had an odor
Pros:Our flight wasn't until 7:30 p.m. and the car had to be returned at 11 a.m... We called Andrew at the Hartford location and for 4.$ extra we were able to keep the car until 4. They also allowed us to drop the car at a location closer to the airport. The experiecne made our trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you Enterprise. Your new loyal customers,
Pros:I didn't get the car
Cons:SOMEBODY TELLINGME THE RENTAL DIDNT GO THROUGH BEFORE I SHOWED UP THERE IN AN UBER AND GOT STRANDED
Pros:Decent car and decent drop off experience.
Cons:Upon pickup in Hartford, the employee was very unwilling to review scratches and damage prior to the trip and there was a lot. Employees were using vulgar raciest language with each other directly in the presence of several customers. Generally, terrible pickup location in an unsafe neighborhood.
Pros:Did not pick up car I specifcally explained a Bradley air port area pick up and when I got to Bradley to pick up the car I was told the pick up was in Hartford the rental at the airport cost me $450 dollars more. Very unhappy
Pros:Good car, clean, well maintained. Friendly, efficient staff.
Cons:Not enough staff at the Liebert Road site. When I picked the car up there was a thunderstorm coming up, and one poor fellow had to deal with a line of people impatient to get going, another line of people wanting to return, as well as the necessary inspections of outgoing and incoming vehicles. He should never have had to do this alone. That said, he did a great job considering the circumstances.
Pros:Nothing at all after checking my reservation it stated that sixt will be closing at 3pm and we gave them a call to let them know that our flight will be getting in at 2:15 pm and once we got there we was told that someone else took the car that we reserved for weeks ago. This facility rather more money over customer service I will not be booking with this company ever again even if it's my last resort. I will take a lyfe or Uber first before stepping into this establishment again
Pros:Staff was friendly and prompt with explaining rental details.
Pros:Excellent customer service good vehicles i would definitely do business with them again

Pros:Terribly understaffed, one agent with more than 20 customers waiting more than an hour. Confusion about cars, cars missing keys, awful service.
Pros:Very friendly and helpful! My problem is with Priceline. They scheduled this at a downtown location, which after I got off the airplane had no way to get to before closing. System shouldn’t have allowed. I selected BDL airport and couldn’t have known what street the car rental places are. Avis worked with me but airport fees made the care over $100 more. I won’t be ordering from Priceline again. I will order from Avis directly. They are great.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:Drop off was easy.
Pros:The convenience and service I received at the time of pick-up and drop-off. Easy and seamless.
Cons:I have never rented from Avis before but I have rented a car with other companies prior to this experience. I expected the Avis employee to walk with me to the vehicle and inspect the vehicle prior to me leaving with the vehicle. That did not happen. I was handed the keys and told I was all set. I walked to the car and noticed that it was dirty inside, leftover papers in the trunk and wrappers in the back door. About half way through my 750 mile commute I received a maintenance required notification on the dashboard for the rear seatbelts. I didn’t use the rear seat belts at all during my trip. The notification continued to prompt every time I would start the car. Just didn’t make me feel safe that all services/recalls weren’t serviced prior to letting a customer take the vehicle as a rental, especially with my lengthy trip.
Pros:Super easy drop off and pick up!
Pros:So I mistakenly thought I booked the car for the Avis location close to the airport. Took the Avis shuttle from airport to their facility, and when the agreement screen popped up, the price showed as being close to $600!! I showed the clerk my reservation, with the price I agreed to as being $136, and the clerk said “Oh, I see the problem. Your booking is with the downtown Avis location, not the airport location.” So I used a rideshare app to go the 20 minutes to the proper facility, and got the price I was promised. But - are you freaking KIDDING ME? It costs 4 times as much for the same car, with the same company, if you rent it from the airport location instead? price gouging, anyone??? On the plus side, once I was at the proper location, the transaction was very smooth and the clerk very helpful
