Cons: The location was closed when I got there. How was I able to make a reservation at 5pm when the place closes at 5pm? On top of that, I got there at 4:50 p.m and the location was closed. I attempted to go to the airport Avis location and swap my reservation there but the rate was 3x more expensive and the reservation non transferable. Ended up not getting a car and had to cancel all my plans for the weeeknd. On top of all of this, Avis is now charging me a no show fee.
Cons: Couldn't even pick up my car
Pros: The staff at the pickup was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: I was unable to find the return location, tried calling and no answer. Ended up being late by 20 min and getting charged for a whole extra day. The drop off process was pretty bad.
Pros: Very clean
Cons: Pickup, the store we went to was very confused about our rental and the car had some flapping underneath
Pros: Drop off was fine.
Cons: I have used Avis Preferred for convenience and service in the past. The car had two very noticeable dents in the side and there was no notation of this anywhere. I had to flag down an Avis garage person to get information on how to document this. I then had to tell the person at the exit gate and she gave me a hand written note. I could have saved over $35 if I had used Fox Rental, but I chose Avis for their usual reliability and service which they did not provide. The car was not very clean - lots of water spots on the glass and exterior mirrors.
Cons: They didn't have a small-sized car that I originally requested, and first gave me a large Ford sedan that was very loud (the moment you turn it on, it makes a VROOM noise without accelerating), and when I requested a different car they said they only had a large SUV, so I ended up taking that which was very uncomfortable to drive.
Pros: Staff was friendly
Cons: The car interior didn't seem clean
Pros: Staff was great
Cons: I tried to change my reservation via the phone, but was unable to reach anyone. I ended up just dropping the car off a full day early, but was charged the full amount.
Pros: Pick up staff were nice. Drop off staff were not very friendly and seemed understaffed. I had to wait to check out and get my receipt.
Pros: Jay from the Bay was awesome.
Cons: Nothing! I got a hybrid and it was sweet. Put more of these into your fleet!
Cons: The car was old, the cost was high, and the check-in was the WORST!! They had five people standing around and it took me an hour to get a car!
Cons: The two hour wait at pick up was RIDICULOUS. Avis has TERRIBLE customer service.
