Enterprise Brussels

I like the cars from enterprise in brussels and lyons airport. however, please take note that, although enterprise's office in brussels airport only closes at 23.00, they are not able to close the rental agreement upon returning of the car after 16.00 on sundays because the enterprise office is manned by only one person, which cannoot chek the returned cars. i don't think that is right.

Good But ...

I'm used to rent cars in asia not in my own country.rni was surpriced they send me alone to the car and have to do the inspection myself alone. now i didn't have luggage but i'm used and always please with a service of peoples of the rental company go with me and even voluntary take my luggage. found an other damage on the car and it was listed without problems or discussion. rncar wasn't 100% clean (specialy inside). maybe this was because i booked late because my car broke down. but you can walk in and book at every moment so i expect they have time to clean them proparly.rna friendly lady at the desk. rnrnone more tip: at the moment we had a real summer in belgium ( yes this happends ;-d ) so maybe can offer bottles of water to go with the car wen temps raise above 27 degrees.rnrnoverall a good experience and i would use them again if needed.
