I would like to request my money if possible I am going to call the credit card company to dispute it. I have reserved a Sedan but when I went to pick up the car they did not have a sedan for me. they gave me a dirty Jeep Wrangler, on top of that They charge me extra on that car. I had to spend over 200 dollars for the gas on that car in 2 days.

Ive never felt so ripped off from start to finish. $600 to rent a van for less than 24 hours is outrageous. All staff from budget O encountered was uncaring and unknowledgeable. 1 out of 10. Any other car rental company would be a better choice.

Rented a Lincoln premium car. When I got to the rental agency, they said they had none, but they could substitute for a premium SUV. SUV. Premium SUV was a Hyundai palisade. Worst car I've ever rented. My wife and I couldn't hardly hear ourselves talk over the road noise. Horrible car. Avoid avoid avoid

Pros:

Pick-up with an Avis Preferred reservation took 1 hour and 45 minutes. Cars were available. Only one counter agent working. A second agent abruptly left.

Cons:

Will never rent Avis at this location again. No excuse for a nearly 2 hour wait when they had cars available. Understaffed and antiquated computer system for rental agreements. Horrible customer service.

Pros:

Staff were helpful. Pickup/Drop off was smooth.

Cons:

The e-toll service was confusing. I was told at one of the toll booths that it wasn't working so I had to pay a toll on top of the subscription service.
