Dirty car in poor condition.Reviewed 2022 Jun 30

Avis is fine, but the Kia Sportage has absolutely no get up and go. Several times wanted to pass going uphill and there was nothing, no response from the car at all until I floored it. The head rest was not adjustable and kept my neck at a painful angle the entire trip. Get something else. The check-in and check-out process couldn't have been easier though. Avis should have done a walk-around with me before we took the car. They just gave me a key. There were several scratches on the back bumper, sticker goop on the front left quarter panel, and the front tag (Illinois plates) looked like someone had tried to remove it. We bent it back into place. There was a large ding in the driver's side windshield. Would have been nice to know they were aware of these things before we took the car.Reviewed 2022 Jun 28

Great vehicle, and friendly staff. One note about BHM airport- there’s no real “return” for cars- you just pull into the garage and park the vehicle in an Avis space, and go to the booth to turn in the keys,Reviewed 2022 May 31

The cars weren’t ready. The list of people waiting to get a vehicle was long. Waited over an hour to get a car, that ended up being a different one.Reviewed 2022 May 20

During our first hours driving, a serious steering problem developed and we headed for the nearest airport Avis agency in Montgomery. The staff there immediately took action to find us a replacement vehicle and we were back on the road within a hour, with an upgraded car. Excellent service!Reviewed 2022 May 01

Avis overbooked and didn't have a vehicle for us on the day we left on vacation. Reservation was made 2 months in advance. Has to drive 1 1/2 hours to pickup a replacement vehicle. It had problems on the trip and had to drive another hour and 15 minutes to get a replacement and the next day it had problems. Had to drive back for a 3rd vehicle to finish our vacation. This was totally unacceptable.Reviewed 2022 Apr 06

We called to confirm the day before and were told they had NO CARS. One agent suggested that we go to the airport, which we did and they too could not accomodate us. Then, when I wanted to get reimbursed for the insurance policy that I pre-paid for, I figured I needed to make sure the reservation was cancelled. Avis would not handle any of that. I had to call the insurance company and go through Priceline. Needless to say, I am done with Kayak, Priceline and definitely Avis.Reviewed 2022 Apr 04

They did not honor the reservation. They said they did not have a van a car or anything for us. They said they knew the day before but called us the morning we were supposed to pickup the van.Reviewed 2022 Apr 03

Kayak reserved me a car, but the rental company said Kayak has no way of knowing there were no cars available.Reviewed 2022 Mar 29

My family went to pick up the Avis rental car and was told there was no cars. I had a reservation for the car but there was none available. We had to pay for a ride from Birmingham, AL to Oxford, MS. It cost me $280.00 for the ride. I am not sure what we would have done if we did not have a Lift Ride. So, not a good experience with Avis. We would like to be reimbursed for the ride to Oxford, MS since we did not have our rental car from Avis. Respectfully, Greg Brown Gbrown973@gmail.comReviewed 2022 Mar 29
