All Car in Brooklyn [9 locations]. "They were great, allowed us to specify insurance coverage and everything on the website and get a real complete price. The car selection isn't perfect, but they were really polite and the rates were good."

"For Martin Luther King Weekend, my friend and I were heading to Cooperstown where mutual friends have a weekend home…My friend did a little research and discovered an Enterprise in West New York, NJ, a town I was up til then unaware of. We took the ferry across to Weehawken and the Enterprise folks picked us up at the ferry terminal and brought us back to the branch. These guys were great!!! They were friendly, something I rarely have experienced in rental car personnel. They talked to us about the sort of car we were renting and made recommendations as to which ones were fun to drive. They gave us great directions for avoiding the dreaded NJ traffic. But the best thing about it was the price. For three days, our total was $140. They even gave us a discount for using the ferry!!! And on our return, they drove us back to the ferry terminal. It was easy, friendly and inexpensive. I couldn't believe it and I will never rent from anywhere else again.
