8.0 ExcellentSep 24 2019
Pros: Great car. The lady at the rental counter was friendly and helpful.Cons: The wait was very long at pickup. The drop off was strange trying to find parking and could have been easier. But I'm grateful the drop off location was close to where we are staying.
7.6 GoodSep 1 2019
Cons: Had computer system difficulties, then poor communication between front desk and pick-up area. Finally worked it out, but did not instill confidence in company as a whole. Nice car, fair price.
7.6 GoodAug 29 2019
Cons: Long line for pickup - approximately 30 minutes
7.2 GoodAug 12 2019
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff.Cons: When I booked the reservation, I booked an automatic. Upon arriving at the airport in Amsterdam - I did not read the fine print. It read, an electric car. In the end, my fault for not reading the fine print. We had to rebook a whole new reservation for more $. Not a great start.
4.8 OkayAug 6 2019
Pros: Drop off was very easyCons: As we are regular customers having the same profile for years the representative should have followed our request not to add any insurance as was done in the past. We clearly indicated this and she could follow our historic patern, instead she added a basic insurance coverage which we didn’t want/ne
7.6 GoodJul 19 2019
Pros: car was very good.Cons: during the drop-off, the personnel refused to give me a receipt. Told me that it will be emailed in 20 min. Now after 24 hours, I am still waiting for that confirmation email and receipt :(

Pros: Car was well speccedCons: Check in took ages c40 mins I think and as a result was late for my meeting
10.0 ExcellentJun 6 2018
Exceptional customer servicePros: The pick up and drop off processes were super fast and friendly. I am not used to driving European cars and they answered a few questions that I felt were...lets say "basic", without making me feel like an idiot. The man at the vehicle return was very nice as well and informed me where the nearest gas station was so that I could fill up and return quickly before my reservation expired and I would have to pay for the gas refill.
8.0 ExcellentNov 20 2017
Pros: Drop off was Fast
10.0 ExcellentSep 23 2017
Pros: Fast and professional service. Very nice people on the floor when you actually take the car.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2017
Nightmare rental and ruined our Christmas.Cons: We picked up the rental and immediately noticed the poor condition of vehicle. I told attendant and they said there was nothing that could be done. When arriving to our hotel and the city areas we noticed it wasn't going into gear properly. The valet attendant at the hotel also mentioned to us that something was wrong. We notified the company immediately and after 4 hours of waiting for a mechanic to show we decided to go get our kids something to eat. When we got back the mechanic had come and took the car with our personal belongings. Car seat, stroller and baby carrier and bag well over $1,000 worth of things. I had to pay over $100 in cab fees and call the police to get my things back from the company. This was all on Christmas Day. No one tried to fix or make this up to us. They did not care at all. I ended up having to spend $700 more in a rental because that's all that was available with another company at short notice on Christmas. I don't understand how people can be so cold hearted and inconsiderate.
2.0 MediocreJan 3 2017
DiscrepancyPros: Hired a car for €600 but ended up paying €1900. Too much and felt like cheated.

3.6 MediocreAug 26 2019
Pros: The pick up agent is slow and unfair. She charged us for 2nd driver without our consent. Also, it took her over one hour to complete the process yet our pick up time started as soon as we talked.Cons: The pick up time should be from the time we got the key, not from the time we were at the signing desk.
6.8 GoodSep 22 2018
Tims Van reviewPros: nice van. Exactly what we needed.Cons: Price for an additional day was absurdly high. Van had dents all over it.
10.0 ExcellentJul 11 2018
Quick and efficientPros: Car was what we expected and we were able to get in and out of the Avis counter pretty quickly. At the end, we dropped off the keys in the dropbox, which was convenient. Drop-off is 24/7.
4.8 OkayAug 27 2017
Very poor pickupPros: The car was goodCons: The pickup was beyond unacceptable. 2 hour wait. Cannot do that again. Would not rent from avis
8.4 ExcellentJun 30 2017

Pros: Overcharged for no reasonCons: Overcharged for no reason
5.6 OkayMay 11 2017
Pros: The automobile was great -- Volvo xc60, almost new.Cons: The rental pickup and return was terrible. I tried to change the location for the pickup and return, and spent hours on the phone trying to contact the locations themselves, without success. I first called from the U.S. to try to pick up the car in the city of Amsterdam instead of Schipol airport -- I was told this would cost me an additional $900! Attempts to reach the rental locations in Amsterdam to confirm this were impossible - on hold for more than an hour. When I went to Schipol airport to pick up the car, they told me that I could have picked up the car in the city center at no extra charge! Similar situation on the dropoff -- I was unable to reach any location to see if I could drop the car closer to my hotel in Paris. Finally, I left a pair of sunglasses in the car. I spent three days trying to call the bureau to see if they were found, and also emailed the customer service departments in Paris and Amsterdam. No response
4.8 OkayMay 2 2017
Cons: We used the car for less than 24 hours but Avis charged us for 2 days. Fuel on the car when we rented it was supposed to be full. It was a little over 3/4 full
8.0 ExcellentApr 9 2017
Good Experience until ParisPros: Everything was fine. The people at the desk even gave us the vehicle in our rental category with the largest luggage capacity which was important.Cons: All was good.

3.6 MediocreMar 16 2018
Wrong Car, Wrong Insurance, Big HeadacheCons: When I arrived, the car I booked wasn't available. The car they replaced it with was too small for our group, so we were stuck cramped in a tight space and having to shuttle back and forth for our whole trip. I asked for full insurance coverage and only received basic coverage. Now they say there is a small scratch on the bumper and have charged 850 euros to my credit card for the damage. This has been an absolute nightmare.
