Pros:The car was dirty on the outside for the hundred sixty miles i must’ve smoked a carton of cigarettes how could you lease a car to someone who doesn’t smoke i totally don’t get it why?????!
Pros:Staff was helpful
Cons:Ordered a compact vehicle and when I arrived all they had was an old big truck - let them know that I have never driven a truck and the employee looked at me and didn’t say a word. When asked if they had a different t vehicle I was told NO
Cons:I booked a vehicle they didn't have, so I never got a vehicle.
Pros:There was no one there at drop-off. We had to write down our mileage and go inside for to the rental office. We wanted a final statement but he said he would email it. 27 hours later, we still don't have it.
Cons:Do NOT give other locations if a person requests the airport rental. We rented from a down town agency without our knowledge. Didnt find out until our flight was delayed and we called to notify them and found out they closed at 5:00pm. Very worrisome and costly to have it changed last minute. NOT GOOD!!
Pros:They called me at 8 am stating that they had no cars available and that every single location in Grand Rapids also had no cars available
Cons:I appreciate the call but I’m confused as to why their website said they had cars available if they didn’t.
Pros:The car was good for my needs
Cons:I requested an airport rental when I searched and when I went to the Enterprise desk at the airport I was told that it was off site. When I asked if they could come close to the rate it would have doubled. I had to take a $22 Uber to get the off site location. Of course I had missed that this was off site rental, but I would think Kayak could have highlighted that fact when reserving since my search was for an airport rental. This way the customer agrees to and it calls attention to it.

Cons:Staff was very unhelpful. We had a reservation but as we were an hour or so late they said there was no longer a vehicle available for us. I have had issues with this location before and will never go back.
Pros:It was fine, the office there is a bit rough and untidy.
Cons:The car smelled horribly of cigarette smoke and pot. It gave me a headache and I had to apologize to anyone ahead of time before they road in it.
Pros:The staff was courteous and the drop off was easy.
Cons:We had to wait in line to pick up and to drop off, but it was not the fault of the staff. They were doing the best they could, but there was only one person working the desk.
Cons:Higher quality vehicle. the Mitsubishi Outlander had a rough ride, mediocre gas efficiency and after some reading found it to be sub par in safety. It would be better if you acquired more highly rated vehicles.
Cons:This was the WORST customer service experience I have ever had--that is not hyperbole. I arrived early to pick up my rental vehicle and no one was at the counter. I said, "Hello, good morning!" so that anyone in the rear would be able to hear me. Tina came up from the back and asked if she could help me. I said that I was there to pick up my rental. She looked over both the Avis and Budget paperwork and told me she didn't have a car for me. I said that I had booked online and that I had a confirmation number. She said it didn't matter and she didn't have any cars available for me. I asked her how this could happen, and if she didn't in fact have a car for me, that she needed to assist me in locating one because I was CONFIRMED to have a vehicle. She said she wouldn't help me find a car. I protested and she said she would reach out to the airport to see if they had a car available and that she would get back to me later in the day if one came available. I said that was unacceptable and that she should make the phone call immediately--as I had been driven two hours south from Traverse City and was stranded without a vehicle. She made a phone call, left a message and said she'd have to see what they had to say. She made or took another call and at the conclusion of that call she said she would rent me a car--but it would have to be dirty because she didn't have time to clean it. Just wanting to get out of there and without any alternative I accepted. I completed the paperwork and went to the car which was VERY dirty. There was dog food all over the rear area, hair everywhere, fast food wrappers throughout and the vehicle REEKED of marijuana. Having no other option--I accepted the car. Shortly after getting underway I noticed also that the check tire pressure light was on. We pulled into a gas station and discovered that the pressure in the rear driver tire of our newly-rented vehicle was at 17PSI--it was supposed to be at 44PSI. What a SAFETY HAZARD! I do not understand how an owner/operator could send a vehicle out without being cleaned or safety checked. Based on the service I received I would never recommend Budget--especially this location to anyone.
Pros:Once the car arrived, everything was fine.
Cons:I had reserved a car more than a month ahead of time to drive myself to the airport. The morning of my departure, an hour before I was supposed to pick the car up, the agent called and said there was no car available. She had absolutely no suggestions for alternative car sources and no idea what the company policy was on refunds or compensation. I had to spend an hour scrambling to find another way to get to the airport (a 3-hour drive away). Finally she called back and said they had a car for me after all. But this was pretty disconcerting!

Cons:Advertised as smoke-free cars. Car smelled profusely of cigarette smoke. When asked to change for a different vehicle, customer rep apologized, but said nothing else was available. Reserved a midsize auto and was given an SUV which doubled my gas expense. Vehicle was in need of an oil change and ran out of windshield wiper fluid (alerts went off within a day of picking up my week ling rental.) Company did offer a small discount and were apologetic upon return of vehicle when I spoke to the manger.
Pros:I arrived before the rental center opened to pick up my vehicle, which was reserved several days ahead of time. I was to pick up at the 9 am opening. I was told by the counter person my vehicle was not there yet, and I would need to wait. She was very nice, to be clear. Then, after waiting for 20 minutes, I was told by the same woman that my car (a special 12-passenger van needed that day for a family trip) could not be found, and no one at any Avis ops center could help, and/or did not return her calls or texts. I continued to wait while she made calls as line volume permitted. She finally learned that the previous renter had not returned the vehicle and I would have to wait until at least 11. I asked for a substitution and got little help, so I walked down the street to Enterprise and they had the vehicle I was looking for, with a price match. After a 90 minute wait that meant missing other pickup appointments and delaying my family’s trip for nearly two hours, I was on my way - with a van from a competitor. Thanks for nothing, Avis. I will be going down the street to Enterprise from now on.
Cons:Pretty much everything.
Pros:A complete joke, I was unable to get my vehicle because I was LIED TO over the phone. I verified over the phone that I would be able to pick up the bricks despite being under 25, where I was reassured I could still get it due to waived rules because of covid. Because of this I did not get my vehicle and was late for the next bout of traveling for my vacation. Absolutely no remorse from employees at store as well. Will NEVER recommend.
Cons:Don’t LIE OVER THE PHONE TO DRAW CUSTOMERS IN.
Pros:Staff was not very helpful in getting me taken care of for the inconvenience
Cons:Gave me a clean car or accommodated me for not having the size car I reserved cause you guys were out of cars except the dirty one I received with animal hair all in it and I’m allergic to animals so they charged me for a upgrade which wasn’t my fault
Cons:The customer service was not great
Cons:My reservation had been cancelled twice and I had to rent a car on the spot for higher price. Then after i left someone called me to tell me the car is no longer available. It was a horrible experience because your system clearly is broken. Never renting from Avis again.
