Staff was friendly and quickDOUBLE CHARGE, WILL NOT RENT AGAIN. I rented the car and pre-paid for car rental and insurance. A few days later I was charged with a supplemental insurance, which I supposedly agreed to at the counter. I specifically confirmed that everything was pre-paid and there were no further charges.

It was easy and economical.The full coverage insurance was a little hard to understand because it was by a separate company and paid separately online. But the person at the desk walked me through it. I’d use them again :-)

Manager Mike was very cooperative while his assistant seemed like she needed a siesta. Biggest let-down was that I reserved a Kia Soul with picture provided. I specifically chose it because I have one, and I know that it has good interior space for my large & tall body. However, they offered me a much smaller sedan, which they said is in the same category. The same thing happened a few days ago at another location where I made a reservation through Kayak with another car rental company, and there they offered a small sedan for a mid-size SUV. Recommend considering interior space for people like me to categorize the car types - do not group a boxy-style car like a Kia Soul with a Toyota Corolla small sedan. And clarify with all the rental companies that regardless of a reservation made through Kayak, they should honor the clients expectations from the applicable web site, i.e. don’t show a large car on the web site and later when it is time to pickup the car state that it does not apply because the reservation was not made directly with that rental company.
1.9 Horrible2021 Jun 24
Literally the worst rental experience EVER! The interior of the car had little spots all over it and a coffee spill on the console. The back driver side tire was very low (clearly a leak). Both of these things brought to the attention of the company before I left and yet I still drove off in that car. They did air the tires up, I guess that was nice but that rear tire had deflated right back to way below pressure by the time I returned it. THE RETURN!!! AWFUL! My contracted return time was 8:00am. I wasn’t going to make it until 8:05ish because I had to get gas. So, I called to let them know and be sure I wouldn’t be charged anything extra. I was told, “no big deal, you have 30 minutes to get here after the contract time.” So I get to Avis at 8:06 am, walk in the door at 8:07 am and there is a couple in the building picking up. Because of this, I wasn’t checked in until 8:21. Upon getting the receipt it’s $84 more than it should have been. “Well it’s because technically you picked the car up at 7:39 am and I didn’t hit enter on the keyboard until 8:21am so it’s outside your contract time.” Obviously I disputed this while in the facility but there was nothing they could do to it bout my rental agreement in hand and a supervisor. Supervisor shows up, I’ve called back and despite the fact that even if they want to use that bull crap 7:39 loophole, I was still in the building at 8:07 which is within the 30 minutes, it’s not my fault the employee didn’t stop what they were doing to log my time. Well low and behold, they can’t do anything about it. I have to call customer service despite the fact that it’s not my mistake. Called customer service THREE TIMES. First time was on hold for 30 minutes and had to give up because I had an appointment, second time on hold for 43 minutes and someone picks up then it beeps and they’re gone, third time on hold for 45 minutes and I finally get Jose. Jose answers the phone with a whole attitude and you can tell by the tone in his voice that he is about to be less than helpful. First Jose says it doesn’t matter that my contract return time said 8am because I picked the car up at 739. Then he says it doesn’t matter that I was in the building at 8:07, it’s when the car was logged in. Then he says well I can issue you 50% of the penalty. I literally had to ask for his supervisor three times and threaten to call the BBB before he could finally refund the $84 that they shouldn’t have charged me anyway. HERES THE SHIRT VERSION IF YOU DONT WANT TO READ THE DISSERTATION… DO NOT RENT FROM AVIS!! Thrifty - yes Dollar - yes Alamo - yes Hurtz - yes Avis - HELL TO THE NAW, TO THE NAW NAW NAW, HELL TO THE NAW

The pick up and drop off were easy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The car was clean and in good working order.It'd have been nice to have the representative go over the car to personally identify any preexisting scratches or dents on the car. Although they were minor, I had to go back to the representative before driving off from the lot to identify a couple of more scratches to be noted on the contract,

Picked up vehicle in El Paso airport. Attendant tried to get me to add numerous add ons. Did not do that as that was a method to renegotiate contract. Tried to convince me the 3rd party insurance was insufficient. Wouldn’t let me use different card for payment when I returned the vehicle.6 months prior, I had no issues of making final payment with difficulty credit card. This time you would think I committed a felony in there eyed when desiring an alternative form of payment for services.

They did not have a car for me at check in time. They blamed 3rd party service for over booking their reservations and that I booked within 24 hrs. This trip was for an unexpected family emergency and the lack of car was a big inconvenience.

Was a little hesitant when renting through FOX since they are a little lesser-known company but besides all of the random fees you typically get with most companies it was a positive experience and I wouldn't hesitate to rent from them again in the future.
1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 31
I have rented twice with them in the same location. The first time they told me that toll roads are included free of charge, come to find out they charged me the fees . The second time: when inspecting their vehicles it’s challenging since they are kept inside the parking garage and lighting is poor; therefore, it is hard to notice any true damages to the vehicle until you are out of the garage, then you realize the vehicle has blemishes or dents etc. The deposit when paying with a debit card is a huge downside to their rental vehicles. $400 plus for a reservation pending fee is a little crazy especially when they only charge 100 plus for a credit card. We use their company a lot for TDY travel and honestly I would not use them again even if it’s government travel. I rather deal with another car rental company than FOX.
3.9 Mediocre2021 Jul 27
The car that was detailed in our check in process was in the lot, but the tenants could not find the key. They put us in an older, but nice, Dodge Journey. The comfort, drive and cleanliness was very nice even though the car had a few bumps and bruises. When checking out, we were charged for a 1/2 tank of gas. We prepaid, but the consultant at check in never made mention that they charge to the 1/2 tank or full tank. We used about 1/8 of a tank. If we would have known that, we would have paid to fill up the entire tank for about $3. Also, upon checking out we found out that we had been charged for partial insurance coverage. Again, at check in, when asked it was assumed it came with the charge. No mention of additional fees. We would have declined knowing that our insurance that we carry through Allstate would have covered us. The bill made no sense, so I will be contacting FOX Rental Cars to get an explanation and refund.

we had an issue with the vehicle needing to be serviced, which was resolved quickly. we even got an upgrade for our troubles. One customer service rep (on the phone) didn't sound like he liked his job and wasn't much help when our rental was broken into. we had to stay the night because no-one was around to help with exchanging the vehicle after the break in. we extended the rental no problem but hen we got stuck with a vehicle similar to what we originally rented by some standard that wasn't even close to our original rental. I would have even paid for an upgrade, if we would have been given that option, because the upgrade was just that nice.

Quick, easy checkout process. They had the car I reserved. No pushy people trying to force the insurance or prepaid fuel. They did ask the questions but quickly moved on when I said no. Only small complaint was the process of locating the car because it’s outside, up the escalator, then over to the far right. A little hard to see initially.

The employees were incredibly friendly.You had two agents working the counter. It took over an hour and fifteen minutes to check out my car. That’s excessive. Everyone in line ahead of me had a reservation so it’s not like you weren’t expecting the influx of renters at that time.

It was easy to schedule the reservation online.We weren’t told ahead of time that $200 more would be needed to secure the card. The agent also said the insurance we purchased online would not protect the car. The payment couldn’t be split between cards and only a credit card matching the driver’s license could be used. We weren’t able to get the car after all because we didn’t have the extra $200. So we lost our money and had no vehicle. Terrible and embarrassing experience.

Prompt service, helpful staff and really efficient and convenient on everything.The quality of the vehicle could have been better. The oil light was on when we recieved the car, and needed changed. The brakes weren't 100% and were grinding a bit toward the end of our trip.

There is not enough staff for check-in. It took about an hour to get the car. Also, the lady who selected the car for me was not friendly. The drop-off was very fast.Have check-in staff to expedite the process.

Keep prices as regularAll the experience was great, but hiking the rental prices ($375 for a day) is agresive

quick pickupno one told me where to drop off the car correctly. The signs sucked and I had to call back 3 times, put on hold numerous times. Also it took me 2 days to get a receipt. I and no proof I dropped off the car. I handed they guy the keys and was told they would email a receipt. I called up 3 times and finally was told it was taking awhile since I dropped it off a different place I picked it up that they had to have the place I picked up close the account so I can get the bill. I ended up calling the 800 number again, the drop off place and finally the pick up place to get my bill. Total of 5 phone calls just to get my receipt.
