Location was closed and no one contacted me before. I had to take a $15 cab to another location to get the car with a promise of reimbursement that never materialized. A huge hassle.

Pros:

Newer vehicles, lots of extras

Cons:

Car had obviously not been cleaned or sanitized since previous person rented it. Nothing vacuumed or wiped down, garbage still in it. These things are a must, especially in today’s environment. I had to clean and sanitize it when I got it home before I would let any of my family get in it, not very happy about that...

Cons:

Consider working together with travel purveyors (travelocity, kayak, expedia, et al) to more fairly compensate customers for unavoidable changes in travel plans during a pandemic. By "more fairly," I mean don't leave them SOL.

Pros:

Car was ok

Cons:

Car not very clean inside and out. Pick up location not very convenient. Check in cumbersome with unexpected additional charges. Drop off very strange; it so happened car was dropped off two days earlier. Attendant said he would take care of necessary paperwork and I would receive the proper credit. I requested a receipt attendant was adamant that I did not needed he would take care of all the needs. This is the first time I dealt with rentals at Albany NY and with Hertz. Since I was pressed for time I moved on. Btw I still do not have correspondence from Hertz

Cons:

Initial staff was rude. Unable to obtain rental since we did not have the original credit card on us that was used at the time the rental was booked. Had my credit card for the same MasterCard on me but was unable to use this even though reservation was for 9/9 and my card was charged 7/25.

Pros:

The staff was helpful but pretty impossible to find at the Albany location.

Cons:

The car was not what I signed up for - I had requested a smaller car and it was a huge jeep. The previous driver smoked cigarettes and the car reaked. I didn't get the sense that it was ever cleaned and it made me feel really uneasy.

Pros:

The staff was excellent!

Cons:

We thought that we booked our vehicle right out of the airport, but apparently the website took us to an offsite rental. We then had to book a much smaller vehicle for $150.00 more! Very unsatisfied with how that all turned out.

Pros:

They did not have the type of car I reserved. Therefore I did not rent with them. They wanted me to wait another day to get more car options. They only had an Escalade available and told me if I wantes it I would have to use a major credit card with a $1000 deposit and on top of that charge me more for it per day than what I signed up for.

Cons:

It would have been nice to have other options like the one i reserved or at least give me the same price for the Escalade they had available.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car worked well. The staff were nice and made pick up and drop off easy.

Cons:

There were a lot of charges beyond the advertised daily price that were either disproportionately high or didn't make sense. Dropping a car off at a different location results in a $130+ fee (this is if you tell enterprise before hand. It is probably higher if you don't). It was cheaper for me to rent from Thursday to Monday than from Saturday to Monday.'

When dropping off they told me not to wait in line just that they’ll email me my receipt, but I still don’t have it or know how much I was charged. When I picked up car they made it seem like there were a lot of extra fees.

I meant to pick this up at the airport, but somehow, I had to pick it up at a mall. I took an Uber there, and couldn't find the place, so I walked through the mall, asked questions, and finally found it. Had to drag my luggage around with me. The car was parked quite a distance from the actual office in a sketchy parking area. The car smelled of skunk - apparently the previous driver had run one over. Also, there was a loud sound coming from the tailpipe. Usually my experiences with Avis have been great.

Arrived in Albany and went to Avis counter to get car. He flatly stated that I did not have a reservation. I asked him to look again as I had made reservation in June and had called Avis just that week to verify. He then said oh you are at the Colonie Mall. I was confused as I thought my pickup was at the airport. I asked where the shuttle was and he pointed to a phone and said I would need to call for a taxi or uber. We took a taxi (25.00) and when we got to the mall around 4:30..it was CLOSED! No courtesy call, text or email from them! Our taxi took us to a motel around the corner (85.00+) walked over the next morning at 10. Muhammad was cool, aloof and had no apologies for our trouble..adjusted our charges by 25.00..no offer to et us back at end of trip. We missed precious time with family, lost a night at our time share, spent 85+ extra for hotel, taxi 25.00 and uber 12.50.

The hours of your AVIS outlet were unsatisfactory and there was no reasonable way for me to return the automobile. Therefore I cancelled my rental reservation.

Booked Albany, assured airport because that is what was requested. Found out at airport that rental was 2 blocks away and by the way they were closed after 4:00. Flight landed at 8:00. When I called to say flight was delayed agent said sorry they would be closed and there was no option. ALTHOUGH airport Avis was open until after 11:00. AND of course the cost went UP to pick up the car from where I thought it was rented.
