Cons: Met with representati who sold me insurance I didn’t need, despite them telling me I did! On returning car, a representative lied about an ‘issue’ with tyre.

However, I was left shaken and very upset after. I shall not be using Enterprise again and have told my family and friends about my awful experience with them.
