Cons: Although the inconvenience of Being missed lead regarding the location of the vehicle And the $35 cab ride to get there was not appreciate in general Camilo and Ryan where both excellent custom service techs , ( Was led to believe the car rental was at the airport when it was located on the fifth floor of a parking garage at 200 Stuart in Boston

10.0 Excellent23 Dec 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and professional at both Boston and Trenton. I encountered some issues locating the proper pick up and drop off locations, otherwise everything went fine.Cons: A better description of the pickup location (in this case, which floor and building at Logan Airport) and how to drop off the car (in this case, that you have to get a ticket at the Trenton Airport parking lot and then bring it, the keys, and the mileage to the counter)
4.0 Okay15 Dec 2020
Pros: The staff at the drop off and pick up were excellent. Very friendly and helpful.Cons: When I picked up the car the "Low Tire Pressure" light was on. I figured I would just add air to the tire, when I got to my destination. The next day the tire pressure was down to 16lbs of pressure. I observed a slow leak in the tire. I then drove to the Enterprise office, where they told me they had no other cars to give me. The Enterprise employee (who was very helpful) arranged for a car to be towed from another facility. After sitting in the car and waiting for three hours the car arrived. I don't blame the employee, she was excellent. I can't believe that Enterprise depletes inventory of vehicles, in case something occurs. If this occurred after hours, no vehicle would have been provided until the next day.

Pros: Horrible pickup and drop off location, poorly organized, understaffed, complete lack of signage. Waited 2 hours on a Sunday morning to pick up a car. Poor return experience: no envelope to put key, you have to take a parking ticket to enter the garage but there are no instructions about what to do with the ticket, etc.Cons: Pickup and dropout experience is terrible. Kind of important parts of renting a car.

Pros: Dropping off the vehicle was simple and the staff during the drop off was very nice.Cons: The car was absolutely disgusting. None of the windows were clean, the center console was duct taped together- since it was hot, the duct tape was melted and left a stick residue everywhere. The car itself stunk like cigarettes and marijuana. One of the tires had a slow leak that the man assured me was incorrect, along with an ‘oil maintenance’ message that I was told was incorrect. Just a badly maintained vehicle and since I was traveling for the month, I was stuck with a smelly, dirty vehicle.

Pros: I was able to change the drop off to West Springfield and the drop of was great. I have no complaints with the staff and experience in West Springfield. The Boston experience was horrible though.Cons: The Boston experience was unacceptable. The Avis/Budget line was horribly long and no other rental agencies had lines. The check in process was understaffed, the staff there looked miserable and didn’t seem to care that the line was horrible. They made little effort to speed things up, I have to imagine because they are used to the horrible experience customers get. I witnessed a similar experience at a different airport where only Avis/Budget had a line. I will NOT be renting from Budget or Avis again because of this. It’s not worth the few dollars you save with those companies. I’d rather pay a little bit more and get good customer service.

Pros: Back Bay was convenient for pickup/drop offCons: First car was a new Kia Soul that overheated after 3 miles; had to return for new but smaller car. Barely made appointment. Office made no adjustments for inconveniences. Found out the Kia was later rented out and had additional breakdowns.

Cons: Staff during pickup was friendly, informative, and all around great. Staff upon drop off was the opposite - rude, unhelpful, and dismissive. Car reeked of tobacco smoke desperately trying to be covered up by all the air freshener and cleaner in the world, but it didn't help, especially after sitting in the sun for a few hours. I know this rental is called budget for a reason, but that level of cleanliness is unacceptable for any rental car.

Pros: Car had good fuel economy.Cons: The car was dirty when we picked it up. There were crumbs and debris all over the dash. We could live with that. The worst was drop-off. We dropped off after hours, but didn't realize it would be when we picked the time. There were basically no instructions so we called Thrifty. The support person just read a script and hung up on us. Super stressful and something that should have been explained at pickup.

Pros: The car was good and the employee was friendly.Cons: They were short on help at 6:00 am and there was a long line
10.0 Excellent26 Jun 2021
Pros: The car was perfect for my needs.Cons: I came a few hours later than my rental time but still had to wait over 20 minutes for my Luxury SUV. The guys at the counter kept giving sub par excuse like sanitizing takes time and it will be a few minutes. When I finally spoke up and said that I will time you 10 minutes as you stated; a clear Ford Expedition XL appeared in 5 minutes.

Pros: The car was brand new 2021Cons: The address that was listed as Logan airport was incorrect therefor I missed my pick up time due to the location closing early on sunday
2.0 Mediocre20 Jun 2021
Pros: There was NO ONE at the Thrifty counter- just a sign directing us to the Dollar counter. At the dollar counter was just ONE agent for a line of customers. It took us over an hour to make it to the front of the line. And, upon getting there, they did not have the car we reserved, and tried to up-sell us on another.Cons: Car was fine. Agent was kind. Service and wait was TERRIBLE.

We had rented with "supplier's choice" to save some on the price, but even with that the car was very expensive to rent for a week.

Pros: Unfortunately, there was no chance for me to like anything as E-Z did not have my reservation on file. I spent over an hour at the counter looking to see if the order was wrongfully placed for a different day, if it was set for a different pickup location, or if the rental company had been changed (I individually checked with Alamo, Advantage, Hertz, Enterprise, and more) to unfortunately find out there no company had my reservation on file. By the time the entire ordeal was done, and the option was to reserve a new car, we were so late that we decided to completely change plans and not rent a car for the day. This put extreme stress on myself with family visiting town and I am incredibly frustrated with this experience. Please contact me at mpbrooks16@gmail.com or (708) 212-6034 to advise next steps - I kindly ask to be refunded for both the car rental and the insurance policy as neither were used.

Cons: The signage for the desk was difficult to find, the car exterior was dirty including windows and mirrors. The gas wasn t full and was low about 100 miles, I filled it a day later and drove that far before gauge returned to the point where I picked it up

Pros: Staff at counter was good, requested a vehicle with "in" state tags. Was told the vehicle had "Massachusetts tags".... it did not, then the gentleman in garage fought with me when I got to the vehicle with "Virginia tags!!!"..... He was very rude and he had 6 vehicles of same model with "Massachusetts tags" but wouldn't let me switch!!!! Ridiculous.....Cons: Using another rental company bc upon returning the vehicle I couldnt find anyone to check me out???? So I proceeded to the rental counter and NO ONE there either at 730am in the morning, it's been a few days and yet to recieve my receipt..... Last time I will use a second rate rental company, I travel for a living and if your a businessman dont use EZ car rentals!!!!

Top tips for hiring a car in Boston

  • Rent a car during your stay in Boston and gain ultimate flexibility to explore not only the vibrant city but also the surrounding areas while you’re there, such as Connecticut or New Hampshire. Opting for a rental car will make trips to destinations further out of the city center far easier, for instance the Foxboro Football Stadium, which is 28 miles from Boston and by car can be conveniently reached in half an hour.
  • Boston International Airport has a Car Rental Center which features a 4-level garage for the abundance of cars on offer and can be reached by the airport’s free shuttle service. The shuttle bus leaves from all terminals every 5-6 minutes. The buses can be found at the lower level of every terminal and are blue and white. In the Rental Center, there are various different rental services including Zipcar, Entertainment, Avis or E-Z Rent-A-Car, so it should be no hassle to find the perfect ride to further destinations.
  • Boston has a lot of traffic and navigating yourself through the many intersections can be confusing at times, however navigation systems can be easily added to a rental car and this will help you reach further destinations without any problems. Boston’s pedestrians are known to jaywalk and cyclists regularly don’t adhere to the traffic light regulations, so paying extra attention and double-checking for pedestrians and cyclists while driving is very important.
  • Boston is one of the cities with the worst rush hour in the US, so try to avoid it by going to your destination before or after (rush hour is most intense approximately between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays). Especially the intersections along Interstate 93 and the Route 128 are known to be clogged with traffic and should be avoided during rush hour times altogether if possible, as alternative side roads are also congested during these times. Also bear in mind that winters can bring snow and ice to Boston, and you should drive extra carefully.

  • As Boston is a city brimming with cars and limited parking spaces, driving a compact car is preferable to bulky vehicles. Boston’s streets are also very narrow in many places, so choosing a smaller car makes navigating the streets easier.

  • If you are driving through a school area, you must not go over 20mph. In popular areas with narrow streets and bends in the road the driving limit is 30mph, whereas you are allowed to drive at 40mph on the outskirts of the city where there is more space. On regular highways you can speed up to 50mph and 60mph on an interstate highway. All roads are marked with speed limit signs as well. Especially at intersections, there may be traffic cameras, so be sure to adhere to all road regulations.

  • The average gas price in Boston is around $2.95 per gallon. For cheaper gas prices, choose a Mobil petrol station as they often feature the lowest prices. Near the pick-up and drop-off points for car rentals at Boston Airport there is a Gulf Express petrol station to refill the tank, however be prepared for steeper prices.

  • Finding a parking space in Boston can be like finding a needle in a haystack and be mindful when you do find a park, that there are lots of parking meters around. Boston also has multiple parking garages like the Boston Common Parking Garage where you will pay around $11 per day, or the Post Office Square Garage for about $9 per day. Alternatively, there are also parking lots outside the city to avoid traffic altogether. Riverside Station Parking on Grove Street, has the green line subway which can take you into Boston in under an hour. Rote 128 in Westwood is another parking lot in the outskirts of Boston, where you can take the Franklin Line train into the city.
