6.0 Good2020 Jan 24
Pros: Drop off was OK, but no closing invoice was issued when I dropped off. I was promised this would be emailed, but this did not materialiseCons: Issue closing invoice on drop-off
6.4 Good2018 Jan 14
Make sure u know what u are getting!!Pros: Friendly service but slow as it’s africa! Didn’t get the car I was expecting so had to upgrade half way through rental.
6.8 Good2017 Jun 03
Cons: After we told them no insurance they put it on the paper work then when we pointed it out he had to start the paperwork over again. Originally issued a car with no gas and smelled like cigarettes badly. Had to unpack our backs and go all the way back to the rental center. No apology. Just a silent reissue of keys. Drop off was chaotic. No return recipet was issued.
4.4 Okay2017 Apr 07
Watch Your Bank/Credit StatementPros: The car was clean.Cons: You will get charged unexplained fees that will double the quoted Kayak rate, including a "fuel service fee" that no one will disclose to you until it shows up on your receipt and credit card statement. I will not be renting with Avis again.
10.0 Excellent2017 Feb 27
Fast , eficient and friendly service.Pros: Good value for money.Cons: Nothing
8.0 Excellent2017 Feb 02
Pros: It was a good car for the category I have selected.Cons: The car had some noise in the wheels during the whole renting days, which I could not identify. I believe that if the car has gone through some check before being delivered, this slight problem could be fixed.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jan 04
Another great experience at Avis-OR TamboPros: Prompt, efficient pick-up and drop-off, kind service, well-maintained, clean vehicle.Cons: It was hard to find the fuel station at OR Tambo Airport to refuel, and since I was running against the clock, I couldn't. But the Avis staff assured me that they'd handle it.
10.0 Excellent2016 Dec 26
Great experience at Avis JNB AirportPros: Fantastic pick up experience.Cons: Everything was fine - no complaints at all.
4.4 Okay2016 Dec 12
Long lines and staff with serious attitudeCons: Lengthy wait. Staff too busy chatting with each other to assist. No air conditioning in the premises.
8.0 Excellent2016 Nov 04
Professional-looking but service can be improvedPros: The car was clean. When we rented the car, the ladies at the counter took time to explain where we were not insured (we only got PAI and CAD), which we appreciated, since we would probably spend more if we didn't have the extra insurance they promoted at the counter.Cons: We weren't too happy with the car selection. We reserved a Hyundai Accent (or similar), and the car we ended up with had really slow acceleration (VW Vito), which I don't think is at part with the Accent's. When we returned the car, the guys who received it said we would get our invoice within 5 working days, despite us insisting for our invoice. We had to wait for it from the man at the counter.

Cons: I still have yet to receive a receipt from them for the rental so I cannot get reimbursed from my organization.

Great car. A bit dicey on front and back ends.Pros: Great car!!!Cons: We had a trainee helping us at pick up and the other service agents did not help her as much as she needed. It made our pick up time extremely long. Finding the drop off location at OR Tambo is a nightmare. Everyone who arrives there on time deserves a credit on their account.
10.0 Excellent2018 Jan 10
Good experiencePros: Nothing different than renting in the U.S., and no sales pressures to upgrade or buy their own insurance.

Pros: The staff was friendly and the car was nice.Cons: The wait was quite long getting the car. I was told it was easy to see the gas station at the airport upon the return but I didn’t. Someone from another rental helped me find it and actually rode with me. And they charged my credit card a $1300 deposit but haven’t credited it yet as promised.
4.4 Okay2019 May 08
Pros: Car wasn’t filled with gas. Had to to fight with Hertz about that. Didn’t believe me that I’d received an empty vehicle. Also over charged fur insurance.
9.6 Excellent2019 May 04
Pros: The staff offered an upgrade. The process was easy and fast upon checking in and out. We got a great price as well!Cons: The car was small. We could have gotten a bigger size only because my husband is a giant! But that was out doing, not the company’s.

2.0 Mediocre2017 Oct 08
Did not receive our carPros: NothingCons: We came to the counter around 8am when we were supposed to pick up our car and they didn’t even what we ordered. So we waited because their systems were down. We waited over 45 minutes and still no car. We need to leave the airport around 9am to be able to make it to something we had planned. So we had to leave hertz and go to another rental company. We were 30 mins late to something that was very important. We were very unsatified with our service. Hertz made us late to something we needed to be on time too.

Disappointed at Europcar - not international standCons: Did not like the car - had problems. Also no consideration taken that I drove it back to the airport late at night to minimise the issue and still got charged petrol. I should not have done that and let Europcar deliver a replacement car to me. Also disappointed that Europcar does not have no insurance option for zero excess! That provides piece of mind to the driver to have it as an option. OR Tambo pick up drop off.
