Cycling is also popular in Freeport, so visitors should expect to see cyclists sharing the road.

In the winter, the city can experience snow and icy conditions, which can make driving cheap car rentals in Freeport difficult.

Cons:

The staff was super friendly, the price was right but the cleanliness of the interior could have been better. There were crumbs and pieces of food and a big area of stickiness around the seat divider and cup holders - probably just a spilled soda but still, in the time of covid you want the entire car to be clean.

Cons:

The place had one car with the check engine light on. I refused it and they sent me to another location after I PAID them for a full size car which I RESERVED. Got to the new place and all they had were compact cars. So I had to get a compact car and I paid for a full size with the promise they would refund me the difference when I returned the car. Not a good experience

They need another person to clean the cars. Not just one person doing everything.

Pros:

The Lynbrook location of the Avis counter was convenient for my stay on Long Island. They seemed to have plenty of cars and there was essentially no wait at the counter to get my car.

Cons:

The Avis office is in a dingy broken down building - no frills. The car was clean except for the interior windows which were filthy. Upon returning the car the Avis attendant must of noticed the filthy windows and even asked if I smoked in the car (I'm a non-smoker) and I informed her that that was the status of the windows when I rented the car just a few days earlier.

This was the first time renting a vehicle since before the pandemic. The young lady at the counter was super-professional, nice, and took the time to explain everything I needed to know to make the pickup very smooth. She did the very same at the drop-off. This Avis branch was wonderful and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of a rental. On a sour note (which has nothing to do with Avis or the personnel): I was ASTONISHED at the outrageously high price it cost to rent this vehicle! It came out to almost $200 a day! This car normally would be under $50 a day, including all the bells and whistles and insurances added on. I HAD to rent a car to visit a family member up in Connecticut, since the public train was an undesirable option in these times of COVID, and the timing and distance from the train station to their home was very far. Renting a car made the journey only about 2+ hours each way. A lot faster. So I hope I won’t be renting another car any time soon until these pandemic rates fall back down to normal. But be that as it may, in spite of all the negativity of the current health situation, this Avis dealership went out of their way to make me feel welcome and to make this experience ultimately a very positive one.
