Rent-A-Car from Enterprise @ 9.99 / Day

Yes I checked this on-line and quote came as low as £9.99/ Day ( Eg from Jan 28 to Jan 31) . Their website advertisement says starting from £11.99/ Day so this is a real bargain... I think price depends on location, so go easy on this please..


Only applicable for over 23 year old.

I booked a car online through Enterprise last year and paid through the website, then when I arrived to pick it up they increased the price by 50% (even though I'd already paid) and asked for something like a £600 deposit on my credit card. After arguing with them I walked out in the end. Maybe they have changed their ways but something to beware of.

Total Charges include Damage Waiver (including Theft Protection), Third Party Liability, Road Fund Licence, and VAT. Additional surcharges may apply.

Additional protection products may be purchased.

Additional surcharge ?????????

Try the dates/day of the week most companies near me are around £35 for a Class A from Fri to Mon (long weekend special)....
#12
You are usually liable for the first £750 of any claim unless you take the excess waver option. Also surcharges apply for one way rentals, under 25 driver, extra drivers etc. As long as you pick up and return at the same location, are over 25 and don't get any damage to the car you woulldn't need any extras that incurr surcharges.

Great price and I think it is unlimited mileage too. I have to drive down to London from Edinburgh and it is a 3 day trip so might see what rate I get as it is better than putting the miles on my car.

Hey £9.99 a day in Edinburgh too for those dates. But not sure I could bring myself to drive a Ka! Vectra is £74.99 all in for the weekend which is pretty good but as I drive a diesel my own car will be much cheaper on the fuel cost.

Still, good find!

I can't see how to do one way hire on the site - very hard to use!
#15
Damn, you need to be at least 23 years to use them. Does anybody know of a good car hire company that allows 20 year olds to rent cars?
#16
I hate to rain on your parade but looking at that screen shot the daily price is £9.99 ex vat, while the total price of £35.96 is equivalent to £11.99 inc vat - i.e. the price hasn't changed, though to be fair they've absorbed the vat difference.

I find Enterprise OK, though they seem to keep their cars for longer than the likes of Avis - I hired a Focus that was a bit tatty, though legal and drove OK. They seem to have a lot of Peugeot 107 / Toyota Aygo cars in their Group A (Enterprise cars usually have a green 'e' symbol on the boot so you can spot them)

Voted neutral as I got £72 for 3 days on a Ford Ka (even if I was 25, which Im not!)

hired in eire from this lot moan about the mileage you put on the car at collection and we will pick you up ..... after you have to phone them up to remind them no marks!

I work for Enterprise. This isn't a deal as such as you can pretty much always get a class A car for £9.99 a day over the weekend. It is offered because our branches are closed on Sundays and therefore you need to keep the car until Monday morning. It's called the "weekend special".

Due to a lot of corporate hires coming back on Friday, it makes sense to rent them back out for a cheap price than to let them sit in the lot over the weekend. To anyone not seeing this price, just double check that it's a Friday-Monday rental.

You probably need to call the branch that you're picking it up from or the call centre. It's approx £50+vat on top of the rental for a one-way.

That can't have been Enterprise, mate. We don't take any payment up front when booking, and NEVER have. Also, it's only £100 deposit. I think you're confusing Enterprise with Europecar (as I'm pretty certain that they take your excess as a security deposit).

no cars in the 10 closest to me (Glasgow area) all show as "Sold Out".
Only Vans left at £33+

"I work for Enterprise. This isn't a deal as such as you can pretty much always get a class A car for £9.99 a day over the weekend."

I appreciate if you posted this deal in here earlier.. I think at least few of HUKD members spotted this for the first time here. So this can be a HOT DEAL...
#24
Agree with others who've said this - it is a decent price, but it looks like their standard weekend special price.

I really rate Enterprise by the way. I've hired from them reasonably frequently - their customer service is good, they pick you up / drop you off, and they don't hard sell the extra insurance too much.

Although, having said that, last time I hired a car Friday - Monday, Avis came in fractionally cheaper, so it is always worth shopping around.

I also had a simalar awful sitation.

I was 23 (so the two 17-25 year olds who posted above take note) and booked a car with them on the website, I think it was a class D car, paid and got my confirmation. On the day of picking up the car they said that I couldn't take a class D car because I was 23. When I told them that wasn't very helpful considering it was 5pm on a Thursday they told me it was my own fault, and that after making the booking I should have phoned them to confirm the booking. Given the only situation I had was to take a car off them. They offered me a class B (punto) car, yet then had the front to try and charge me 5 pounds more per day.

This is an awful company run solely by arrogant salesmen who have no ability to understand customer service.

I will NEVER recommend this company or use them again. I've used many other car hire companies since then, and they've all been much nicer and understanding, for the small difference in price I would much rather use a well established customer friendly company.

booked a standard transit van a while back and they said they had to give me a long wheel base van instead when i got there...fair enuf i thought, then they asked for my age, 25 and they said i had to be 30...when i asked what i could do, they said they could give me a lift home!!! not much good as I had to move my girlfriend out her flat that day 150 miles away. after a bit moaning to the manager they let me have it for same price!! was still fuming when I left tho...the cheek of them. thankfully thats been my only bad experience with them. i think it realy depends on the branch, luckily I have a few near me, so can pick n choose which i want

Avis used to, but at a huge surcharge.

I work for another rental company and come across Enterprise's low prices all the time. I used to work for them and would agree with Kebabthief that I have never seen them take a deposit over the phone. However, if you ended up booking through a 3rd party website, that company may well have taken the money as a broker. This is quite common and really commits you to turning up to renting the vehicle.

I would shop around for prices during the week, although weekends are cheap and I know Enterprise sell out quickly in some areas as our sites are also busy at that time, albeit at a slightly higher rate.

Most rental companies offer CDW (Collision Damage Waiver), Enterprise from memory charge about £15 per day for vans to reduce the excess from about £750 to £150, but this is years old info. Average UK charge per day among other rental companies for a similar product is £9.50 for a car and £10.50 for a van. These can add up, so consider a third party insurance site that offers an annual policy for about £60. I have never used this, so can't recommend it and the down side is that you have to pay out then claim back.

Hedge your bets though, and perhaps make a booking in advance with the cheapest you can find not too far from the airport - if you don't pay up front, you should not have to pay if you don't turn up although you need to check the reservation terms. Last year, airport prices were amongst the highest we saw in the market due to real shortage of cars. The airport rental companies could pretty much pick and choose at times and upped their rates accordingly.

you dont have to enter any payment details and entering your driving license is optional so I dont see what they could do if you didnt turn up!?

damage waiver with enterprise is 8.70 a day + VAT for 25 and over which reduces most vehicles down from 600 to 100

I agree, pretty much nothing. Most airport sites in particular over book, expecting 30% or so of customers not to turn up. I only say check the terms just in case there is something particularly unusual in there.

Yeah, that's called CREDIT HIRE. It is one reason why car insurance prices have sky rocketed over the last couple of years, to such an extent many are being priced off the road, including myself.


£490 last year, £2000+ this year = ive sold my car.


£2,000! What on earth did you drive? Are you under 21 years old or with numerous points and/or claims?

Just checked the rate shop we did in October, you are right. On cars - they charged £10 per day inc VAT at that time to reduce excess from £600 to £100. Vans were £15 per day, reducing from £750 to £250.

I'd strongly advise against this at an airport. "Walk-up" rates can be a lot more expensive as it depends on how many cars are available. Sometimes it can be double. Whereas, pre-booking guarantees you that price.

If you paid up front on the website, then you've got the wrong company here. Enterprise doesn't have, and never has had the facility to take payments over the web site. It's purely for booking.

Come to think of it you might be right, I may not have paid.

I wouldn't get the wrong company, I will never forget that experience, and I will never forget the conversations I had on the way to the depot to pick up the car with the intern (this is before the whole situation).

My points for not ever wanting to use the company are still just as valid however.

Did they call you when you made the booking to tell you what ID you needed? If so, then it seems that the person who made the call wasn't thorough enough to ask if you were over 25 (which is something that should always be done). The reasons for anyone under 25 not being able to take anything above a group B is because we're not insured to, and the young driver fee is purely to offset the amount of damage done to cars by people under 25.

I'm not saying that you would have been one of them but I've seen the numbers and they're horrific.

I know that doesn't make your experience any better and these facts should have been identified in the initial phone call. If you're 25 or over now, and willing to give them another chance for them to make it up to you, I'd happily email the branch manager of your local branch and get you a decent discount on a future rental should you need a hire car at some point.

At my branch, I don't like to have any unhappy customers. Not one!

It's a shame that something like this happened because someone forgot to ask you a question when they called you.
#39
good deal but beware of these hire companies , i hired a van from europacar and she "swiped" my card for £500 pre auth for damage , 5 days later i had been charged £15 damage waver , i never asked for , complained got full refund. If you ask me the words pre authorisation and a quick swipe of your credit card sounds like trouble. hire companies are as bad as clamping companies!
#40
resist the extra £10 a day to reduce your excess.
I mean if you own car insurance quote was £400 with a £500 excess, or £4050 with a £100 excess, you'd keep the extra £3650 in your pocket wouldn't you?

just make sure you note every single mark and scratch, wheel scrape etc, cos it's not unheard for car rental companies to charge over and over for damage already present
