KAYAK

Pros:

The drop off was not easy at all. Was able to pick a time slot to drop off the car at 6pm not knowing the location actually closed at 4pm. Staff did not tell us the procedures for the after hours drop off. My husband went all the way there, then had to come back and we had to call the Enterprise help line to have them tell us how to drop off the car after hours.

Cons:

Communication with staff about drop off procedures especially after hours.

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was friendly and despite my booking the wrong day, let me rent the same truck for the same price.

Cons:

This is just all Enterprise Car Rental's in general, but they don't require the person returning the car to fill the gas tank to the top and just bring it back the way it was. I always find that harder to do.

KAYAK

Pros:

I LOVED my rental, an expidition max. Delightful to drive.

Cons:

The car wasn’t ready on time. Securing my rental investment loved a call the day before, to ensure that I did, in fact, want what I’d reserved. And then, when I arrived, on time for my rental, it wasn’t there, it wasn’t in transit, and I had to wait 1.5 hours to be transported to a different location to get a suitable vehicle.

Pros:

The staff was very friendly, professional, and helpful. The inside of the car was very clean. it was very thoughtful to see a note that special care was given to COVID19 cleanliness.

Cons:

I do like a clean car on the outside. The car was not washed on the outside. However, we did have a few wet days prior to me renting the car.

Pros:

Well it got me to the airport with no breakdown..

Cons:

My car smelled like smoke , mentioned this at pick up and the attendant said He did not smell anything, but I’m very sensitive to smoke and it causes a migraine. Also my price was double what I was quoted!!

Cons:

The rental office was NOT easy to find. It's located next to Sears, which is undergoing considerable construction, so you have to look beyond the fences and scaffolding to see it.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was comfortable, clean, and fuel efficient. They gave me a ride to the Metro, but it's not close to the Metro.

Cons:

I was charged another day for late return. I thought I had until noon, but I picked up at 10:48AM. The location was in the basement of the Marriott with only one man working and only a couple of cars. When I arrived to return, the office was closed while the one man working there was buying his lunch.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing

Cons:

The staff was horrendous. Most importantly, they didn’t have a car for us and didn’t car. Worst car rental experience of my life. How can you rent a car and show up to get it without one being available?

The staff were very friendly and accommodating but the car they had for me was way too small and definitely not in the class I rented. Hertz needs to reassess the classification given to cars that have recently gone through “updates.” A 2020 Ford Escape is NOT the same as a 2015 Ford Escape.

Hertz called me 9 hours before I was supposed to pick up my car to tell me they had overbooked by 200 cars and were unable to honor my reservation. There was no attempt by Hertz to resolve the huge problem they had just created for me, I was on my own. Fortunately, their competitor Avis took a same day reservation and provided me with a car that afternoon.

This location is inside a hotel. There was no way of knowing that. There are no signs outside or notes on the website that tell you that.

Sep. 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

We were very upset over our experience with Hertz, and doubt if we will use them again. We booked on line and there was no reference to having to show our passports to get the vehicle. When we arrived to pick it up we were told they wouldn't release the vehicle unless we had our passports. We had our driver's licences with us. When we asked could we return within the hour with the passports, we were told they closed at 12 noon, and there would be no time. So we cancelled our rental and rang the company to explain our predicament, and asked that the cancellation fee be waived, which we hope has taken place. We subsequently booked with Enterprise, who did not need to see our passports. There was nothing on line to indicate with Hertz that we needed to show our passports. This was a very negative experience for us!

Top tips for renting a car in Fairfax

  • With a car rental in Fairfax, you will have many options for day trips and excursions that would be out of reach without one. Situated on the crest of the greater Washington, D.C. area, the city serves as a launching pad surrounded by a well-integrated network of major roadways. A rental offers quick access to areas like the nation’s capital, Alexandria, and Baltimore. What’s more, having a vehicle at your disposal allows you to dictate the terms of your travel. Rather than orchestrating your trip to work around the availability and schedules of public transportation, you’ll have the autonomy to determine departure and arrival times—not to mention you’ll have a place to put your shopping bags while you’re out for lunch or dinner.
  • There are several locations from which you can pick up your Fairfax car rental. You can find a Budget and an Avis at Fair Oaks Mall, a Hertz on Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy., and an Enterprise on Nutley St. There is also a wide range of options available to you from Dulles International Airport (IAD), including National, Dollar, Thrifty, Sixt and Alamo, to name a few. To find the rental car desks, head to the arrivals level (baggage claim level) of the main terminal and exit to ground transportation—just outside, on the far roadway, there are free shuttles that will take you to the rental car locations.
  • Fairfax has a fun downtown area replete with restaurants and bars, which means you will want to keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road in these areas. While there are designated crosswalks, people don’t always stick to these spots, so be prepared to yield, especially on the weekends.
  • The northern part of Virginia close to Washington, D.C., which includes Fairfax, is known for having heavier traffic. However, you can expect commute times to increase most significantly during the hours before and after the typical workday. Morning rush hour will usually start as early as about 6:30am and last until as late as 10am. In the evening, you can expect to find the roads quite congested between about 6pm and 9pm.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Fairfax for C$ 71 or less
  • Book your rental car in Fairfax at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Fairfax are around 34% cheaper than other car types, on average
