WHAT I LIKED: Pickup and dropoff were in the airport terminal. WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER: The car initially provided had a large crack all the way across the windshield (which they warned me about at the counter in the terminal). This would have been very distracting and was unacceptable. After looking at the car, I returned to the counter to request another car, and had to wait an hour for another one to be ready (even though there were several other cars parked in the lot). I expected better out of Enterprise.

Quick, clean, efficient, and professional. The exception and not the rule here.

The car was well-worn, with a broken radio. The rental price was $400 above what I had been quoted. On the positive side, the pickup and drop off were smooth and fast processes, and the car ran well.

I thought the staff was nice, and the car was available on shot notice after my other rental company canceled a few days prior to my trip.The car smelled like cigarettes, and it never really went away.

Pickup/drop off right in the airport and very easy.

No cars ready. Had to wait for over an hour for someone to turn in a car. They overbooked reservations. There were 10 people in same boat with me. Delay Delay Another Delay. They did not say sorry or offer discount.

The staff member was very helpful and friendly.The vehicle was smaller that what we ordered and it reeked of cigarette smoke. My husband had severe allergies and the smoke caused a serious reaction. It took a bottle of Fabreeze and quite a bit of work to rid the smell for the return trip to the airport. My husband was not able to be in the car for the entire week that we had it.

The staff in Harlingen was amazing! A cold front came in so it was cold and pouring rain and the agent there went and got the car and pulled it right up close to the building so that I would not have to get wet. I was so very grateful for his extra effort!! 10 Stars!!!Everything was perfect!

1.9 Horrible24 Jun 2021
My flight was cancelled and I was unable to pick up my car. I requested to hold the car for me until the morning...and I would even pay for the day we were supposed to pick it up and the guy said no.....first come first serve. I said if I am paying for the car when I was supposed to get it what difference does it make. He said sorry we won't do that. I said can you book me a car for the next day then and he said no.....they don't have any cars. The customer service was really bad and I won't be trying to rent a car from them again.

Friendly staff. Got lucky with shuttle back to airport - did not have to wait too long. Good value.The car was very worn for only having 12,000 miles. Lot's of dings and dents, stained seats, chipped windshield. May I was at Rent-a-Wreck? But it ran fine and no issue with how the car operated.

Honestly that was the worst car rental experience I've encountered!I liked the vehicle, Black Mitsubishi Outlander Drives niceFilthy on inside Filthy on outside we actually stopped and had to wash the windows as the vehicle had been wiped with a water cloth that left TONS of streaks everywhere that we couldn't see out Had garbage / used kleenex inside car / had used rags stuffed in the doors that someone used for cleaning / sand everywhere The car was 4 miles from airport and they didn't open til 9:00 and we had to be at our plane at 8:30...nearly missed plane BAD EXPERIENCE...WILL NEVER RENT HERE AGAIN!!
4.8 Okay30 Apr 2018
Shady RentalThe Budget ad clearly said on-airport vehicle pick-up/drop-off. Not true - the location is 2.2 miles off-airport. And it was not open when I had to be at the airport early in the morning. So I left it in the parking lot, and I still do not have a receipt for my expense report that is due today. The desk staff was brusque and rude, with numerous posted signs informing you of all the ways you will be charged extra: any sand in your car = $250 fee - and that is for an airport serving South Padre Island visitors! If tank is not COMPLETELY full, $7.50 a gallon. Smoking in the car = $250. The signs were just obnoxious, unprofessional and immediately set a bad business tone. I will not re-use the Harlingen, TX Budget office.

Why I'll always use AvisGREAT experience with the Avis team in Harlingen, TX: half an hour after I returned the car, they discovered a rather important key on the floor that had fallen from my pocket. They called immediately to notify me and I was able to get back to the rental desk in time to retrieve it and still make my flight. Can't say enough for the professionalism, courtesy, and diligence of this branch.

Very comfortable, met our needs. Smooth ride.We were told it had internet, but rental car agency were not aware internet was locked, it was requesting a password. We were not aware of this until we were on the road. Called car rental agency and they were not aware of this either. Other than that, everything was excellent.

Second times a charmRep was understanding and gave me a different rental when the original was dirty and the tire was missing hub cap.The original car Toyota carolla was dirty on the inside. As if someone had been eating and left crumbs all over the front. I should've figured when as soon as I saw the car the front driver side tire was missing its hub cap. It was just a black rim.

Clean car, just wasn't sure about getting to and from the car lot. Wish they had more customer service to help to your car.My mom can't walk that far, and we had to walk to the car with our bags. I feel someone should go get the car and bring it to uou. That's what they do at other sirports. Just a little un clear on where to go and how far it is. For me not a big deal, but for my passenger it was a little far to go in the rain.

I would NEVER rent from Hertz again. I am still recovering from the tramitised experience. I am dealing with Hertz customer relation / billing department. If a resolution is not reached by Monday, I would probably start legal action. Would be more than happy to discuss this if you are interested. Avi Cohn 503-913-3298
