From time to time over the last few years, it has been necessary for me to hire cars – both privately and on business. I have used a number of different car rental companies, according to availability and location, but I would gladly recommend Enterprise Cars based on my recent rental experiences.Enterprise rental centres can be found across the UK – the branch that I have used recently is located within the local Vauxhall dealership centre. I would suggest that different branches would carry a very different range of vehicles, according to their location, but my local branch carries a fair stock of all the various Vauxhall models. One of the problems with most car rental centres is that, although they belong to a nationally recognised company, they tend to be individually managed at each location – which effectively means that your experience may differ greatly according to where you take your business.
On both occasions that I have hired from Enterprise I have been advised that the vehicle that I require will be available on the date that I require it. Whilst this may seem like a relatively simple request, you will be amazed at how difficult it can be to locate higher specification rental cars, especially at short notice. On both occasions, I telephoned one day beforehand, and on both occasions the rental centre was able to accommodate my request.Rates obviously vary considerably according to the size of vehicle that you require, and the period of time that you want to rent the car for. I noticed that Enterprise currently have a special offer that offers a weekend rental on one of the small models (e.g. Corsa) for £29.99. I hired a Vectra 150 2.2 for a period of seven days and was charged just over £40 per day (including VAT). I have hired better vehicles from other rental firms at better rates, but only because the period of rental was considerably longer (more on this later).
Upon arrival at the rental desk, I have always been greeted with the utmost courtesy. The first time that a vehicle is rented from any dealership the paperwork and checking our procedure can be relatively time-consuming, in order to ensure that everything is in order. An advantage of returning to the same dealership is that all details are held on file, so you can complete the transaction much more quickly. Each of the employees with whom I have dealt has clearly been keen to please, offering instructions and advice on the car’s features, and even offering a lift to and from the rental centre if necessary. This is evident in the amount of positive feedback that I noted in the customer comments book (which you are prompted to fill in when you return the vehicle!). Compared to other centres, my experiences at Enterprise have been wholly positive – I have no complaints.That aside, I would also like to offer some basic advice when renting cars. It can be a relatively complicated, even stressful transaction so you would be well advised to follow some of these tips:
1. Always discuss the availability of excess waiver premiums.
