ADVANTAGES OF RENTING THROUGH ENTERPRISE RENT-A-CAR:
- A discounted rate
- Offices at Burlington, Albany, and Manchester Airports, as well as all over New England.
- Your rental is on a corporate account - corporate account rentals are given priority over the average rental, which means your vehicle is essentially guaranteed (allowing for the extreme exception: mechanical breakdown, etc.)
- We have an agreement with Enterprise so that there will NOT be a charge for extra drivers (as many rental car companies will). If the Enterprise branch does try to charge you, please ask them to read the conditions for the Timberline Events account.
