Friendly and Professional
Pros: I have yet to have a negative experience with Enterprise. The staff is always of the highest quality in customer service: friendly, knowledgable, and willing to go the extra mile to make your rental experience a good one. Halifax Enterprise is no exception. Don't bother with the "other guys". Go with Enterprise. They will pick you up and drop you off at home!

Amazing Service
Pros: Staff was so friendly, great experience! Will defiantly be renting from enterprise again!
2.0 Mediocre
30 Apr 2016
Pros: nothing at all
Cons: The Etnerprice and Kayak have to explain clearly that people under 25 can not rent a truck from Enterprice before making the reservation .. i had to look in a different company that provide a truck for customers under 25 years old. Also, they waist my time which I lost some money due to the confusing from Kayak and Enterprice (time is money). I am not going to deal with Kayak and Enterprice anymore.. It was the first and last time. good job both of you ^_^

I love Enterprise
Pros: I liked everything about this rental. The staff at both the Kempt Road location in Halifax, and the Airport location were kind and accommodating. Between calling in advance to ask for certain favours, to needing help on the road, the staff were always happy to help. I wish that I could remember all of the names of the countless staff that helped me over the phone and in person, but the only two names I can recall are Chance and Lily. So thank so you much Chance, Lily..et all.

Courteous
Pros: They gave us a ride to the airport and didn't charge us the extra fifty dollars for being two hours late (please be on time). They were simply excellent on their customer service. I always felt well taken care of, but I imagine it varies Enterprise to Enterprise as each location is different.
Cons: The contract was a little long yet still unclear about what constitutes damage even though in person they assure you the car is undamaged because the dents are below a certain arbitrary size and the scratches are less than an arbitrary length (none of this is documented in paper though). On the plus side, I never had any problems with them claiming that I had damaged the car.
6.8 Good
24 Sep 2016
Pros: Good car and generally good service, good price
Cons: Were not informed about complimentary pick up/drop off and drop off was going to take a long time so we had to skip it.

19 Sep 2017
Pros: I wish there had been a more low cost option for a hybrid vehicle or at least one that was more fuel efficient. Also, it took a bit to figure out how to work the windshield wipers. It was a bit different in this newer vehicle. We had to look it up in the manual. Tired to use the Bluetooth but it wasn't enabled. Someone going through the features would have been nice.

Forgiving
Pros: I showed up at the airport to return the car and found out I had been charged an extra hour which was almost the same price as the day. When I brought it up to the employee inside he finished my sentence for me saying he'd take off the extra charges. I was pleasantly surprised!
Cons: My convertible was delivered with the top down and I was not instructed how to put it up. Three minutes later I had figured it out. Really was a non issue.

Great car, easy to drop off and pick up. No hidden fees
Pros: The cost of the car wasn't as cheap as I'd hoped, but it was cheaper than any other site I looked at without discount. The car was very clean and was great on gas. There were no additional fees after returning the car, and the staff was friendly. I had no problems with this rental
Cons: The distance of the hertz rental place from the airport meant that I had to pay for a $70 cab ride, but it was still cheaper than renting from the airport.

Great experience. Would rent again without hesitation.
Pros: I would definitely rent again. The only reason I gave it a "Good" rating rather than an "Excellent" is explained in the comments of "what could have been better". I had paid online in advance. The process of picking up the car was smooth and quick. When I asked if there was a complementary map, I was provided with a simple map of Halifax - exactly what I needed. When I returned the car and followed the signs into the parking garage, an attendant was immediately available outside to direct me into a parking space and examine the car for any damage.
Cons: Because it was foggy, and raining outside, and rather dark in the parking garage, I didn't see that there was some food debris in the centre area around the gear shift when I received the car. It was the next day that I became aware of this, outside in bright daylight. The rest of the car was very clean, including the floor mats. I do not feel that this area was intentionally overlooked but rather missed for the same reasons I didn't see it until later. The people inspecting and preparing the car for the next rental would benefit from some good lighting to notice details. And, renters should be more considerate in the care of their rented vehicle to prevent this kind of soiling - totally unnecessary.

Where are the electrical cars?
Pros: I like the white colour.
Cons: Bad fuel efficiency for a small car (8.8!), instead of compact cars you should have fuel efficient. And when will we be able to rent electric cars? Price was definitely more than advertised.

16 Sep 2016
Pros: They were conveniently located in the city center. The agent was by himself when we arrived soon after they opened, but he was very helpful. Perhaps we were scheduled to drop off at the airport location, we were super-upgraded for free.
Cons: Nothing really. If we must, the upgrade was a bit too luxurious (we'd requested an economy car, as it was just two of us with not much luggage, but got a Cherokee. Hmm, extra gas...)

Pleasant Avis ride in beautiful Cape Breton
Pros: The Taurus we rented was in great shape, clean and ready to go as promised. The manager at the Avis outlet in Halifax was courteous and helpful. Though I rented with Kayak, he found my Avid Preferred number in the system and saved me a little more. We immediately drove up to Cape Breton and all over the island. Very enjoyable trip, and the car served its purpose quite well. If we visit NS again, I will certainly rent with this agency.
Cons: Not the franchise's fault, but the road construction on Grafton Street in Halifax, not to mention all over downtown was horrible. This is on the City, with a seeming lack of proper traffic flow analysis before they'd shut down streets. Total lack of signage too.

23 Aug 2017
Pros: Staff at Halifax were excellent.
Cons: The two telephone reps ( from Timbuck2) did not do anything they were asked to do even though they acknowledged they did. Vehicle was smaller than advertised even though the disclaimer may have shown that. Our vehicle was not similar to a Chev Tahoe by any standard.
5.2 Okay

No car due to them overbooking
Pros: Car - clean, quite new
Cons: There was no car for me at the booked location with no idea of when one would be coming in. There was already another person ahead of me in the list who was also waiting because of overbooking so I did not feel like waiting. They said I could pick up from another location and after getting there by public transport nearly 2 hours later, they tried to charge me an extra 'prime' location fee for the new location...

Wish I realized this *wasnt* at the airport
Pros: Car was clean, ready and return hours were flexible. Great location and staff was helpful
Cons: I wish I had realized that this pickup *wasnt* at the airport - cost us $70 to get to downtown Halifax to pick up the car, but the rental was also $400 cheaper to get from downtown as opposed to the airport. the markup is a blatant example of price gauging. Thanks, capitalism.

Close to Cruise Terminal
Pros: Located in the Westin Hotel, this Thrifty rental site was close to the cruise ship terminal. The car was clean, the staff very friendly, and had no problems with the rental process.

13 Jul 2017
Cons: Picking up the car in Halifax took way to long, over 45 minutes which caused us to be an hour late for a wedding. A new (I assume) employee was very slow.....had to ask someone else to step in and move us along faster, in being late, my partner slipped on steps and twisted his ankle, stressful, but all in all, the rest was fine. I had called the rental the day before picking it up to see if I could drop by and fill out the paper work to speed it up, this option was not available to me.

Pros: Car was fine, performed well
Cons: Gave me a reservation to pick up after the downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia location was closed. Had to hire a cab to take me back to airport, to obtain car, Besides the extra $120.00 canadian for the two cab fares, the whole first day of our vacation lost. Would appreciate your consideration, of reimbursing me the $120.00, as reservation from Kayak the flawed cause.

Pros: The compact size of the Tiguan on the outside was great. The roominess on the inside was good. The service counter personnel were fast, friendly and helpful although a little too eager to try to upsize our rental to a yukon-like behemoth of a vehicle
Cons: The gas mileage was so-so.

Upgrade
Pros: We had a reservation for a compact car, and were offered an upgrade to a larger car at no charge. Had a Hyundai Sonata, very nice car with good fuel economy.
Cons: We arrived at Halifax airport late (9:30 PM), and called the number. No answer. Waited about 10 minutes, called again, go someone to pick us up. Staff should have headsets to be able to answer phone wherever they are, to avoid panic attacks by customers.
