Cons:Dollar Rent A Car did NOT honor my reservation. They claimed that I should have received a cancellation notice, yet, over 90 minutes AFTER my scheduled pickup time, my booking status remained "confirmed" in your system. This is outrageous. You have wasted both my time and my money. I will require an immediate refund of whatever charges you have made to my credit card as well as a credit for AED 120 in order to refund wasted taxi fares to and from the airport. I could not be me more disappointed in your service or lack thereof. I would recommend that you not disappoint me further by ignoring this demand. Sincerely, Matthew Sumner
Pros:the car was fully fuelled. car condition
Cons:front desk staff beahviour processing time took almost 50 min to get the car
Cons:They charged AED 25 in parking fee which was not included or mentioned anywhere when I made the booking. Picked up and dropped the car back into their garage and paid parking fee. Not at all justified.
Locations in Abu Dhabi
Pros:Not much. The staff at the second location I had to take a taxi to in order to find my rental car was moldy understanding that the other office was atrocious in the way they dealt with me as a customer
Cons:I was forced to take a taxi to multiple location after I called a number on a locked door at 1200pm at the first location and was told by an employee that he didn’t plan on coming that day and I should find another europcar location in Abu Dhabi. Terrible customer service and cost me more money to travel to another location that did not have available cars as the person on the phone had promised. Overall the pick up process was over 2.5 hours.

8,0 Very Good
Pros:Staff and car good. Friendly. Car had little tyre problem. Had to refill air in the middle of trip
Cons:Avis Place difficult to find at Abu Dhabi airport. No signs
8,0 Very Good
Cons:Gave me a different car
Pros:Not much. Easier than renting from DXB, but that's really more of a credit to Abu Dhabi's airport than anything Avis.
Cons:They called a hatchback an "SUV". It was tiny and had over 30K km on it so it didn't drive very well. Additionally at drop off the traffic made me 30 mins late and they charged me a FULL day! Not even an hourly rate or anything. Absurd. Customer service was very poor both at pickup & dropoff. Never again Avis, never again.
Cons:The car they gave me had a whistle sound while breaking this means that the brake pads and rotorsee needs to be changed. That's a safety issues and this won't make me rent a car with avis again. My reservation number was #09681320US5
Pros:They are in airport
Cons:I booked 8 seats according to website one month before booking then during pickup they said we never have 8 seats van ..finaly I don't have options only picked up 7 seat SUV Ford.
Pros:pick up process
Cons:did not receive my bill uptill now and don't know how much i will be charged
Cons:Changed the dropoff point and asked us to drop it three hours before what the paid one was because they closed early that day!? And they didn't know that before and we still had to pay full??? Plus they charged us with extra cleaning only because there was a little sand from the beach from the kids - taking the matt out and done, but no, we had to pay and extra 50 $! And the overall costs are a joke, they make a good price on paper but in the end you pay more than anywhere else - don't book there!!
Cons:I was informed at the counter on pick up that I need to put down a $500 hold on my CC to cover possible "traffic fines". Cancelled immediately. Be aware when renting cars in the UAE with Budget.
Cons:Give very small car and value high 540 Dhs , in other companies same car 400 Dhs, and don't care for customers..
Pros:Convenience for picking up and dropping off vehicle at airport.
Cons:The whole experience was terrible!!! :( First, when I arrived, he told me he does not have a seven seater available became they were fully booked and will have to give me a smaller car. I refused and I showed him my reservation which was made months in advance, he then said he will see what he can down. Twenty minutes later, the other guy came back from the lot and said he will upgrade me to a Mercedes-Benz Vito (which I booked in the first place). Then, he tried to up-sell me insurance when I clearly told him that I am not interested and that I have already purchased it. He then said that my insurance does not cover everything (without even looking at what coverage I had) and try to further sell me insurance. The associate than became arrogant and rude when I refused to buy insurance (so he could make commission off me by forcing it down my throat). When we went to the car lot, they gave a very high mileage Vito and a ton of scratches and dents. I had to take several photos and a video of the damage to make sure he does not charge me when I return to vehicle. He very furious about this and told me not to worry, that he had made all the notes of the damage (but who can trust this man). I asked him how to open the trunk; he said he does not know, he did not even try to help me. He gave also me a ticket and said when I returned the vehicle I will need the ticket to get back into the lot. However, once we exited the lot, the machine takes the ticket and opens the boom gate, it does not return it. After driving for approximately 30 minutes, the service light came on. In addition, throughout the trip, the engine sounded like an airplane taking off, I don’t know when last Budget Car Rentals serviced this vehicle. I don’t know where Budget employees these sort of people and how they train them. Next time, I will go with EUROPCAR or AVIS or any other car rental company that appreciates my money and treats me like a customer. I will also inform everyone I know about my unpleasant experience and inform them to use another company!
