8,0 Very Good
Cons:Two things-a car that was a bit cleaner, and the store open on Saturday for an early return.
Pros:They did not have a car for us at all!!!! Nothing
Cons:Don’t take money for cars that you do not have
Cons:They didn't have the cargo van I rented. They called day of, saying they wanted to "save me the time" of coming to get it. I asked if they could locate one at another location and they told me I could call around. I did--no luck. I ended up having to rent an actual moving van and pay an extra month for being late. The representative didn't even apologize--just acted like it wasn't his problem. Appalling lack of customer service. :-(
Cons:The car smelled offensively of excessive air freshener as if the smell of cigarette smoke was being masked. The air freshener was so powerful that my cloths and belongings would smell like it hours after getting out of the car. My jacket still smells a day later!
8,4 Very Good
Pros:Staff was friendly great with walk around and pics, so happy when they do this!
Cons:Um the cleaner they used at the time did not detail the car so when we dropped something on tee floor moved mat found glass
Pros:Yes, I believe her name was, Rosie she was great, infomative, friendly and professional
Cons:Rosie needed a little assistance with my prepaid transaction, the other lady there asked me if I was sure I had money on my card, I pulled up my online banking to show her that I had over 11 thousand dollars available on that card. That statement made me feel a little disrespected.
Pros:I liked being able to book my rental online.
Cons:When we arrived to pick up the vehicle, the van that I requested was not available. The van we requested would have had more space for our belongings to fit. The Pathfinder we received was very limited. We also had a price quoted online, and had I not had an issue with it, I would have been charged almost $200 more than I originally agreed to. Even though the pathfinder is a great vehicle, we needed exactly what we requested. Especially since we'd reserved the van at least two to three weeks in advance.
Pros:Staff was very helpful and have the paperwork and everything done quickly because I was in a rush.
Cons:Airport parking could have been better for to drop off but it was pretty busy
Pros:Easy rental process. Polite agent. Clean, comfortable car. I will rent from this agency again !
Pros:the return in CLT was fast
Cons:First off, KAYAK sent me the WRONG address to pick up the car from so I had to call another Uber to take me to the correct address and was a huge waste of time. Then the pick up process took way too long. I put in my reservation days before with a pickup time and I expected my car to be already separated and ready to go requiring only my signature on some paperwork. They only started to LOOK for a car for me when I arrived. It took 45 MINUTES to pick up the car. It seems that only a small team works at the AVIS and they were all busy.
Pros:Staff was awful
Pros:The staff was nice
Cons:Checked the availability online before I made my plans and booking. They said they had a truck...didn’t get my car until almost 2 hours after my reservation and it wasnt even a truck. They should have given us a deal for our troubles but instead it was more of a oh well this is what you get attitude
Pros:Everything was just great.
Pros:Easy pickup/easy return. The vehicle was extremely easy to drive and had upgrades such as power lifts to make handling of luggage easy
Pros:Vehicle was awesome.
Cons:Great fuel economy .
Pros:The car was very comfortable
Cons:The car was only superficially clean. Anything that wasn't easily accessible, like the cup holders and storage compartments was filthy. Also, the car wasn't in great mechanical shape; warning message that it needed an oil change showed up. Also, car appeared to have a questionable fuel injector; acceleration would stutter at times.
Pros:Car was fine and met our needs
Cons:We had searched for pick-up from Greenville Spartanburg airport but the booking we received received required us to pick-up in town. When we picked up the car from the airport, it was $163 more expensive. The person at the desk was unwilling to do anything to assist and the city office was closed.
Pros:Liked the VW Bettle!
Pros:The option to rent a decent full-size SUV, Chevy Tahoe.
Cons:They didn't actually have the SUV I reserved, so I cancelled the reservation and won't do business with them again.
Pros:After being extremely stubborn and unhelpful they pointed out the fact that there was an Enterprise across the street from their location.
Cons:Customer service and the fact that they were offended that I used a third party site to book a rental. Rude and unhelpful will never use budget ever again.
Pros:Trey was great. Very nice and thorough and you could tell he was a hard worker.
Cons:Car value for the money is bad. Car condition was bad. Door creaks like it's going to fall off when you open. Had 89K miles on it. Headliner was nasty with who knows what all over it. Brakes little spongy. Returned it at 5:30, but because it was an hour later than when I picked it up, you charge me for another 24 hour period! I hurried there thinking I would save some money returning early. Will not rent there again.
