I tried to rent a car but there are none available or the price is too high. What can I do?
The reason behind limited or no availability could be that most of your nearest Enterprise locations are closed at the time you have selected. Select a pickup time during office hours to see a wider selection of cars and offices.
If the cars are too expensive, try, for example, a Friday pickup and a Monday return or a longer rental period, such as 5 days. If you wish, you may return the car before the agreed return date.
