The History of Enterprise Rent a Car

Enterprise Rent a Car was originally called the ´Executive Leasing Company´ and had a fleet of seven hire cars when it was set up in Missouri by Jack Tayor in 1957. Taylor then changed the name to Enterprise after serving on the USS Enterprise during World War II. The company went from strength to strength and in 2009, it became a subsidiary of Enterprise Holdings Inc which is a car hire giant and owner of National Car Rental and Alamo Rent a Car as well as Enterprise Rent a Car.

In 2008 it was thought to be one of the largest privately owned companies in the United States. Enterprise´s previous focus has been on the car hire replacement market, which means that it provided hire cars in local markets following accidents and following cars being stolen or while cars are being repaired. This was a short term market for anyone who had a short term need locally for a hire. They also rented cars for short business trips and leisure journeys. It wasn’t until the 1990´s that Enterprise Rent a Car started to move away from this local, short term market and started to set its sights on the bigger business and tourism markets. They started expanding in to airport in the United States and Canada in North America, and then in the UK, Ireland and Germany in Europe.

They are company that is very focussed on customer service and they were even ranked the 9th best business for customer service by Business Week in 2007. They have also been repeatedly recognised as one of the car hire companies with the highest customer satisfaction scores.

With over 7,600 car hire location across the globe, Enterprise Rent a Car is truly global. They have more than 1.2 million hire cars and they estimate that in the United States they have a car hire location with 15 miles of 90% of the population. This means that no matter where you are, you will not be too far from an Enterprise Rent a Car.

FAQ - Enterprise car Hire

It is not possible to give you an average daily price without you doing a car hire search for your pickup location and date.

How do I get cheap car hire from Enterprise?

There are few good tips for getting your cheap Enterprise car hire.

  1. Use a comparison site, so you can compare like for like on all the Enterprise car hire prices and deals you see.
  2. Always look at the end price with the extras you want added in.
  3. See what insurance coverage you want. The cheapest car rental company may have more expensive insurance, and then you will pay more for the overall rental, compared to a company with a good price for the car and for the insurance.
  4. Book as early as you can, prices rise as your pickup date gets closer.
  5. Do not book directly at the rental desk in the airport. They know you need a car NOW and will charge you for the convenience.

What fuel policy does Enterprise have?

Car hire from Enterprise typically comes with a full to full fuel policy.

This means that when you pick your car up, it will be full, and you need to return it full at drop off. If you do not return it full, you could be subject to a fine and the cost of refuelling the car. Fuel charged by the car rental company is often more expensive that you fuelling yourself at a Gas Station.

Other possible fuel policies available are:

  • Pick up Full, Return Empty
  • Pick up quarter full, return quarter full
  • Same to same: return with car with as much fuel as it had at pick up.

See our blog post on how to beat fuel charges when renting a car, or our video guide on car rental fuel policy.

Does my Enterprise car hire come with insurance?

Cars rented from Enterprise to drivers from the United States of America do not include Theft or Damage cover. These are standard requirements when renting a vehicle, otherwise you can be held liable for the full value of the vehicle in case of damage or theft.

When Enterprise hire cars to UK or European residents, these vehicles typically come with a level of Collision Damage Waiver and Theft waiver as standard. These insurances come with an excess as standard, which varies depending on your car size.

If you are looking to reduce the risk, then you will need to purchase Car Rental Damage Protection. With this option, you will be required to leave a deposit at the start of your rental.

If you are looking to reduce the excess completely or have an Enterprise zero excess car hire in, then you will need to take out a Complete cover package directly at pick up.

Does Enterprise allow additional drivers?

Yes, they allow up additional drivers. Any additional driver must meet the same criteria as the main driver and be present at pick up. The daily cost varies from country to country, so please do a search and click on the Enterprise hire car that you want, in the important information section, under “Driver”, it will tell you the daily charge for your location.

Does Enterprise accept debit cards?

Yes and no! You can book your rental car from Enterprise directly here on Car Booker and make a payment with your debit card. However, to pick up your car, you will often be required to have a credit card in the name of the main driver. For many UK locations, Enterprise say that they do accept debit cards, but will require an ID and address verification.

It always depends on the local office. Do a search for your location, click on the debit card filter on the search engine, and it will show you if Enterprise accepts debit cards in your location.

Where they only accept credit cards, this is used to hold the refundable security deposit. If you want a reduced or no deposit rental car from Enterprise, then you will need to take out full insurance from them directly at the rental desk when you go to pick up your car.
