I arrived after a full day of flying across country and was exhausted. The woman handling my rental had already chosen a car which would not have been my preference. I arrived at the counter by wheelchair and explained that I needed a car with a more upright seat. She disregarded my comments and said to check the car and come back to the counter if I wanted to switch. At this point, handling my bags and walking with a crutch, this was an unrealistic expectation on her part. I managed to use the car, but found it painful getting in and out of it.

Pros:

Price was good and the car was nice and clean.

Cons:

When I dropped off at JFK Airport, I was in dire need of a restroom after driving across New York and getting stuck in traffic. The woman at the desk didn’t want to give the code to use the restroom. I guess that will teach me not to have White Privilege.

Was missing window scraper. Car was from Florida, the windshield wiper fluid was not freeze proof. It froze solid in Pennsylvania. I had to stop several times, go to gas station to clean windshield so that I could see. THis was annoying.

Pros:

The service was excellent. The staff was an incredible team. Antoine is amazing. He is so friendly, yet professional, taking care of multiple customers, yet, not one of them could feel neglected. He used teamwork, asking others to finish customer' service he had set up in computer. I looked up his name, online; it means; "from Latin Antonius) that could mean beyond praise or highly praise-worthy. " I regret, I did not get the name, of the gentleman who took me to my car, and finished my contract. He to was friendly and efficient. Then, when I returned my car, Enterprise hooked me up, with a ride home. Mr. Caesar was very nice to converse with, on the way home. Thanks Enterprise!

The woman at the Harrisburg location used a machine that wouldn’t accept my credit card. I called the credit card company to make sure the prob was not on my end and it wasn’t but she was ready to send me away, not that I would have gotten far without a car… I finally convinced her to try a different machine and of course it worked. I understand that she was stressed and working alone but honestly to think she would turn a customer away is astounding. She did not apologize when we realized finally it was her mistake.

The car was really nice, clean and well equipped.

Cons:

I didn't know that the vehicle was not at the airport so I had to pay $40 for a cab to take me to the rental car place. had to change my reservation to drop off at the airport and was then told that I had limited miles so I got charged a lot more than I was expecting. I also couldn't figure out the push button start on the car!

Top tips for renting a car in Harrisburg

  • Main roads in Harrisburg provide smooth navigation. On the other hand, roads off the main roads are composed of alternating two- and one-way streets, which can be confusing. Potholes are also common on some Harrisburg roads due to the extreme winter temperatures that cause the freezing of seeped water underneath roads. As such, driving Harrisburg car rentals off the main roads can be a bit challenging for outsiders. Road markings on certain streets are no longer visible due to wear out. We advise finding a route to your destination before getting behind the wheels of cheap car rentals in Harrisburg. You can equip your rental with GPS to help you find the best routes to your destination. While driving, look for signs and road marking to help you reach your destination safely.
  • In Harrisburg, anyone above 21 years operating a vehicle with a BAC of more than 0.08% will be penalized. Those below 21 should not operate vehicles with a BAC of more than 0.02%. The penalty and fines imposed will depend on your alcohol concentration. Higher alcohol concentrations will attract heavier fines. The law requires drivers of cheap car rentals in Harrisburg to clear their vehicles of ice and snow during winter before getting on the road. Failure to do this might lead to dislodged ice which may cause injuries to pedestrians and other road users. You will be held liable when this happens. Driving on the left lane for more than two miles attracts a fine. So does using your windshield wipers without turning on your headlights.
  • Maneuver your vehicle with ease around the city and from Harrisburg to other cities using main roads. U.S. Route 22 circles the northeast center of the city. It runs north to Wildwood Park and the Susquehanna River. Interstate 81 cuts across northern Harrisburg, heading to Michaux State Forest and Wilkes-Barre in the south and northeast, respectively. It passes several states from New York to Tennessee. Interstate 76 takes you to Pittsburg in the west and Philadelphia in the east.
  • Harrisburg is like many U.S. cities in that it was designed and planned for automobiles. Public transportation in the city is quite lacking and their service is slow and inefficient. If you want to get around town efficiently, a personal vehicle is definitely the best option. For example, the 5-minute drive that it takes to get from downtown Harrisburg to the State Museum of Pennsylvania quickly turns into a 25-minute ride on public transport.
  • Those arriving at Harrisburg International Airport who are looking to rent a vehicle right after landing will find that the rental car desks are conveniently located in the Ground Floor Transportation Center of the airport’s main terminal.
  • Though Harrisburg is not that far north, it still experiences the occasional winter storms. Ice and snow can quickly blanket roads and drivers should be prepared for wintery weather if they visit during the colder months of the year. Drivers not confident in their ability to handle the snow and ice should make sure to drive extra carefully and to check the weather regularly so that a storm doesn’t catch them by surprise.
  • Drivers can expect the morning rush hour in Harrisburg to pick up at around 6:30 a.m. during the workweek and to finish up by around 9:00 a.m. As for the afternoon rush hour, it is a bit less severe and starts at about 4:00 p.m. and quiets down shortly after 6:00 p.m. The Capital Beltway is one of the more bogged-down avenues in Harrisburg, particularly as it crosses the Susquehanna River.
  • Book your rental car in Harrisburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Harrisburg are around 11% cheaper than other car types, on average
