2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 09
Pros: I couldnt rent a car at budget because they did not have any cars available at all. So they said they would refund my money and they have not done so yet. Its been abojt 10 days. It even shows that the payment postrd to my credit card. I would like my refund please.
8.0 Excellent2020 Jul 05
Pros: They were not open even though they said they were open until noon. I arrived at 11:40am. The guy cleaning the cars took the keys and put them in the office. I hope I don’t get charged for more days.Cons: The car has dirty windows I had to clean them before I went on the road. The car was not full of gas, but I did return it with a full tank. When I returned the car they were not opened. They could have been opened so I know I successfully returned the car.
10.0 Excellent2020 Jun 13
Pros: Nice vehicle,good priceCons: Trunk lid auto suv
4.4 Okay2020 May 28
Cons: The staff was nice pick up had to wait, counter person was on the phone. The car he rented me was not washed it was dirty, it had a dirty glove on the drivers side, it had dog paw prints on the seats and dog hair everywhere in the back. It had sand in the inside of the door handles makeup all over the visor. It had sand and mud on the outside of it. At drop off the gentleman checking the car in was very nice and helpful and the counter person was also very nice he made it very fast and gave me a discount. It was an urgent need to take my son to an important appointment at the children’s hospital so I had no time to take the car back and ask for a new one we had to sanitize wipe the car on the inside our selves in the parking lot prior to putting my son in it. With covid-19 you would think they be more careful with the cars cleanliness prior to renting them out like that.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Feb 01
Pros: Yes staff was friendly.Cons: I specifically looked at psp airport. But kayak booked me for a location not in the airport. I’m sure I could have noticed this by paying better attention. But I was only looking for cars at the airport. So I never got my rental. I booked with someone else
10.0 Excellent2019 Dec 19

10.0 Excellent2019 Dec 06

6.8 Good2019 Nov 09

10.0 Excellent2019 Oct 18
Pros: Friendly staff. The location was NOT inside the airport terminal. It was outside the airport and you would need to take a taxi from the airport jf you use this location. Better to book on that is on-site at the airport.Cons: Use the location inside the airport.

2.4 Mediocre2019 Nov 20
Cons: Car tire had a bubble on side wall , when I went exchange in Bakersfield ca was lied about having any cars available ,was not until I called cust service that they kept saying that bakerfield Avis had cars. After two hours going back and forth they called Bakersfield I got a car. Bad experience I missed scheduled meeting I had. No more Avis for me will try another car rental co

Pros: When we checked in to pick up our rental car, the lady (Heather) at the front desk was absolutely fabulous! We will be back again.Cons: Nothing, we were very pleased with the entire process. Thank you, Lisa and Jim
9.2 Excellent2019 Nov 06
Cons: The VW Atlas was a rattle trap. It took a bit to realize the backup camera didn’t go off after reversing the car, you have to manually touch the screen’s X to make it go away. I thought the V-6 was unresponsive. We figured out how to delete prior users smart phones that were constantly trying to pair with the car. Little things yes, but something that Avis could take care of when the last few people turned the car in. It did allow me to give the Atlas a thorough test drive as I had been considering it in a field of SUV’s to purchase.
9.6 Excellent2019 Jun 24
Pros: The upgradeCons: The smell, scent, in the car. Smelled like marijuana
10.0 Excellent2019 May 27
Pros: Staff was friendly, drop off was easy. Great that you can pickup car on site at airport without needing to take a shuttle somewhere.

Pros: Mike was very nice and professional.Cons: Drop-off was leaving the car at a hotel and putting the key in a box. There wasn't a way to have the car checked out, so a lot was left to the honor system.
6.4 Good2020 Sep 08
Pros: The van was OK, had the room we needed and was comfortable.Cons: The lady at the counter was very helpful especially when Hertz messed up my reservation which I then had to sit with a cancer patient in the airport for 1 hour on hold to talk to a representative because the counter rep. couldn't fix the issue. The van was dirty not even washed when I picked it up.

Excellent Staff. Excellent Service!Pros: Kurt who took care of me knew his stuff. NO SALES JOB! First time ever renting they didn't try and sell me stuff I didn't need. No hidden costs with regards to the high taxes. Other companies sell you on the low price, don't send a confirmation of complete cost and I have felt ripped off in the past. Prices comparable to competitors. Start to finish with Hertz was first class.

Long wait, made me late!Cons: I arrived exactly at the time i said I would and it took 45 minutes to get my car. I asked for a mid-size car because we had some large suitcases, but they gave us a convertible that had a small trunk so we had to throw our luggage in the back. We were supposed to pick up our colleagues and go to a business dinner, but we had to go to the hotel first, check in, drop off the bags and then go pick them up. We were an hour late for our business dinner because of Hertz.

Pros: Very helpful and friendlyCons: The fact that because our flight was delayed we lost our original reservation and were without a car because the price was doubled!
2.0 Mediocre2019 Dec 29
Cons: I reserved a car for pickup at the airport. When I got there the person told me I would have to pick up the car greater than one mile away, if I wanted a car at the airport, I would have to pay an additional $250 and take a mustang that I did not want. It was X-mas eve, so I had to take the car. I will NEVER do business with Kayak again, I will NEVER do business with Enterprise again. This was pure bait and switch and criminal activity.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Nov 14
