10.0 Excellent10 Jul 2020
Pros: It was quick and easyCons: The kayak App could’ve been more clear on the pick up location
2.0 Mediocre2 Jun 2020
Pros: No, didn't have the chance to answer any of these questions because when I got to the rental place on Saturday, it was closed. I wasn't able to rent the truck or any other vehicle for my son's graduation. Complete let down and won't use the service again.Cons: Insure when you rent to people the actual place of business is open
7.6 Good17 Mar 2020
Cons: The pickup location not at airport so I received an added charge there. Tracking expenses via your website is not intuitive. Is not very good for tracking spend or travel history. Your insurance for rental is separate from Hertz and creates difficulty in tracking the expense.

9.6 Excellent23 Sep 2020
Pros: Friendly staff, easy pick up and drop offCons: Car had a smoke smell, should have been a little cleaner
8.0 Excellent2 Aug 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly, the car was clean and roomy. Pick up and drop off was easy.Cons: We were only able to drive the car for the airport, one day while we had it and back to the airport. The key fob wouldn’t work. And it took us a couple of days to find someone who carried the battery. So we had to pay for that also.
9.6 Excellent5 Jan 2020
Pros: Great guy helped us out
10.0 Excellent9 Dec 2019
Pros: The two young men at Enterprise and Manchester-Boston Regional Airport were extremely polite, knowledgeable about the type of vehicle we needed, and very helpful and solicitous re any questions or concerns we had. Especially important considering that we were going to be driving on snowy and possibly icy roads. The Kia Sorento with full time AWD and available 4WD was perfect. Overall, one of the best experiences we’ve had in renting a vehicle. Thank youCons: Nothing we could think of
10.0 Excellent28 Oct 2019
Pros: Even though the the type vehicle I reserved was not available, an upgrade was provided at a discount.Cons: Not a thing.
9.2 Excellent12 Sep 2019
Pros: All was excellent. Front desk, very helpfull.Cons: N/A
9.2 Excellent10 Sep 2019
Pros: The rental was exactly what I had reserved and was a nice vehicle with good features. Check in was relatively quick.Cons: Check in could still be quicker. I was not able to get a receipt at turn in since it was a one way rental, which is a bit arcane since it’s all the same company. Overall though good experience.
2.0 Mediocre3 Sep 2019
Cons: Terrible service at front desk. Had to cancle the rent
2.0 Mediocre19 Aug 2019
Cons: Cancelled the reservation when we found out it was "an off airport location" with no shuttle service. This was not made clear when I made the reservation.
8.8 Excellent5 Aug 2019
Pros: Enterprise is always helpful and good/great customer service. I thought price to be high for the car. It is underpowered but spacious (Dodge Caravan). Got good gas mileage (28 mpg on high end). Mediocre connectivity with phone. No bluetooth etc. Easier and more nimble than moving truck.

4.8 Okay22 Jun 2020
Pros: The initial car i got was great and a comfortable ride. Was looking forward to the road trip.Cons: The car was great but the brakes shuttered when you applied them and the back tires of the care were almost bald. I had to get another car that was not so great in terms of the comfort of the ride but at least the tires had tread on them.
10.0 Excellent18 Dec 2019
Pros: Got upgraded to larger vehicle for free.Cons: # of staff available at check in and new hire staff member with little knowledge left alone to process customers arriving at lot. Had to call supervisor for nearly every detail. Inadequate training to be left alone.

10.0 Excellent31 Jul 2018
Positive ExperiencePros: Service at the reception was prompt and good.Cons: Car as provided was fuel efficient and No issue- No complaint. However, insurance was on the higher side. It should be much less looking at the insurance I already had.
5.6 Okay18 Jul 2018
Cons: I didn't like that when I went to pick up my rental the fee was much higher than the quote I got from the website when I booked it.
8.0 Excellent8 Jul 2018
Pros: Nice vehicle. Staff was friendly.Cons: During pick up, staff was not super clear about toll options. I did get what I needed but was surprised it wasn’t clearer. Drop off was okay but poor signage for those of us dropping off before there was an attendant.
10.0 Excellent6 Jul 2018
Up GradePros: Nice that it happened.Cons: Car too tricked out. Jeep Compass has many controls that can't be overridden. Lots of automatic steering, bings, wipers out of control, etc.

10.0 Excellent25 Nov 2019
Cons: The attendant was clear, quick, and gracious. Answered all my questions with the most pleasant attitude. Shame I didn't memorize her name.
5.6 Okay29 Aug 2019
Pros: Pick up was easy and agent was friendly and helpfulCons: Drop off was awful. Very complicated just for drop-off. The car was having problems with acceleration and an alarm that kept going off randomly and there was no one to tell when I got to Boston (who closes at 3:30 pm on a weekday!!)
9.6 Excellent8 Oct 2018
Fast and friendly servicePros: Friendly fast and courteous service, both when getting the car and dropping it off.
6.8 Good20 May 2018
No need for a $#&* transponderPros: The car was clean and drove well, had lots of bells and whistles. The drop-off was quick and easy once we found the right parking lot (not very well signed).Cons: Only one waiting at the counter for two rental agencies, long check-in wait. The kind of car I had reserved was not available. I like to drive a small economic vehicle, and all they had were SUVs. The woman at the counter tried to rent me a transponder, told me the toll booths didn't accept currency (wrong!). She also charged me 50 bucks more than I had reserved. Reason: prepay for a full tank of gas. No, no, no! Didn't prepay, of course, If you don't bring back a fuil tank, they charge over nine bucks per gallon for the refill.
7.6 Good22 Nov 2017
Pros: Car was in good condition & roomyCons: They didn’t have the size car we’d booked and the representative seemed annoyed with us that we asked about our options and whether we’d get a discounted rate if we took a smaller vehicle. We ended up choosing a larger car than we wanted at our same rate so it was fine. Just a bit frustrating when they didn’t have what we reserved & the customer service was a bit lacking.
9.2 Excellent15 Nov 2017
Pros: Nice car.Cons: Apparently, the gas tank was not quite full when I picked the car up. The gauge registered at the "FULL" level, but quickly dropped after driving fewer than miles.
8.8 Excellent26 Oct 2017
Fall colors rentalPros: Car clean drove well lots of luggage roomCons: Long wait to pickup Easy drop off
8.4 Excellent22 Aug 2017
Good value for the pricePros: You could not go wrong with the price. Front desk staff was polite and professional.Cons: The car had some minor dings, which I always take time to document before leaving the lot, but this is to be expected.
2.0 Mediocre12 Apr 2017
Does not accept Visa debit at all.Cons: Even after calling Dollar beforehand to make sure it was okay, they would not let me rent using a Visa debit card. Very poor customer service, bad communication. I lost the $45 insurance fee I paid for when I made the reservation.

When to book a rental car in Manchester

Top tips for renting a car in Manchester

  • The easiest way to see everything in and around Manchester is on your own four wheels, so rent a car for your time in the city to make the most out of your trip. The city offers a wide array of great attractions which are dotted all around the city, so getting to see them all becomes considerably easier when you can create your own itinerary and are not tied to public transport. Visitors may also consider taking a day trip to coastal cities like Portsmouth, which is only 50 minutes by car away.
  • If you land at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to start your time in Manchester as quickly and smoothly as possible. Follow the signs to the car hire center, where travelers will find a wide array of car hire agencies, such as Enterprise, Hertz, or Avis, to name a few. Via the I-293 S, travelers will be in Manchester in less than a quarter of an hour.
  • Bear in mind that winter can bring lots of snow and sleet to New Hampshire and Manchester is no exception. Prepare yourself for wintery driving conditions when visiting during the cold months, and check if the car is properly equipped with winter tires when renting. Travelers may also want to get extra snow chains in case the weather conditions become severe. When there is snow in Manchester, the roads become narrower due to it being piled up on either side, so adjusting your speed and slowly entering intersections is crucial.
  • Morning rush hour in Manchester peaks between 7 and 8 am, so it is better to avoid it for a hassle-free ride. Evening rush hour usually kicks in at around 5 pm and can last until 8 pm, clogging up the streets -- especially the I-93 and I-293, which is teeming with commuters. On weekends, traffic is usually pleasantly smooth and drivers should face no problems, but still check current traffic conditions before driving just in case.
  • Book your rental car in Manchester at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
