J.D. Power Rental Car Ratings
From press release: "The study, now in its ninth year, measures customer satisfaction among business and leisure customers who rented a car at or near an airport. Overall satisfaction is based on performance in six areas. In order of importance, they are: pick-up process, rates/value, return process, rental car, reservation and shuttle bus/van. Enterprise receives high ratings from customers in all factors and leads the industry in the areas of pick-up process and shuttle bus/van. Hertz follows Enterprise in the rankings, receiving the highest ratings in reservations, rental car and return process.... Wait times to pick up rental cars have increased significantly over 2003. The study finds that 43 percent of all rental car customers had to wait an average of 19 minutes for a shuttle bus to pick up their rental car-up from 11 minutes in 2003."
