How to get the real cheap rates at Enterprise!
« on: June 11, 2008, 12:55:16 PM »
This past year I have been renting from Enterprise bi-weekly. Just wanted to share some tips with you.
The rates they qoute you are like gel. They can be moved and brought down very easily. Here are a few of them.

1.) If your not a frequent user of that particular location, tell them your car is in the shop. And your insurance company is paying you 20 dollars a day to rent a car. Since there are insurance rates, which are much cheaper. They will give it to you. They will ask for a claim number. You can tell them you misplaced it. This can work a bunch of times.

2.) Call them and tell them a nearby Dollar is offering a daily rate of e.g. 30 a day. Then ask them if they can match it.

3.) Any complaint you make on the car, can give you discounts. Because they have a customers satisfaction option, which will take off the rate that they give you. E.g. "The car had a horrible oil smell", "There was no washerfluid left", "The car was making loud noises". Basically tell them, you were horribly inconvenienced.

4.) Not officially, if you tell your rep you will send headqaurters a letter how well they took care of you, always helps.

Other tips

a) You can always get an upgrade for free, just ask nicely.

b) You can rent at the end of a day, and they can start the billing the next day for you. (only if its a 24hour billing, not an insurance rental which bills by day)

Good luck!!!

i once called the enterprise near crown heights and they wanted some id proving that i work for chabad. but that was the only time it happened, i use this corporate all the time, all over the country no questions asked.

No, the way the corporate is built is that anyonje who has a remote connection to Chabad can use it... Even if its your cousins friend sister buddy from this forum... As far as I know its ok even if you get into a accident

Ive been searching for AGES for a way to rent w/o ridiculous fees. Im 20 and have a NYS license, anyone know if the Enterprise on 4th Avenue (Brooklyn,NY) would rent to me at the supposed 42.99 Daily rate posted on the site (after CHABAD code)?

Is there a NYS resident fee? And under 21 is also acceptable? I happen to work next door to a Chabad center, so im 5 feet away from being a Chabad worker O:).

::EDIT::

One more thing, I only have a Debit card, no real credit card, I always charge things as "Credit" but I never got a real 100% credit card, would this suffice for the rental or its no good? It says "Visa" on it but its not really a CC..

Old Topic, but BOTTOM LINE is there any way for a sub 21 year old to rent a car in brooklyn at a normal (<$60/daily) rate?

Enterprise at JFK has become really nasty lately when you mention the chabad corporate. they ask for proof of employment at chabad and if you know who opened the account and whats the "password" etc. he said its because people have been coming in and bringing back dented and dinged cars.

try avis with a corporate that allows rentals 18 and Up with no underage fee.
