The agent seemed to be overwhelmed, he was the only one there. He couldn’t find my reservation in the beginning. But I finally managed to get a car. I brought it back in 4 1/2 hours and he was still busy said he would email me my receipt, never got it and I’m still seeing pending charges on my credit card after 3 days he never closed my rental. I finally had to call and hopefully they will straighten this out

Nothing. They had the car sitting there, ready for me to get going. I didn't need it for as long as I expected & was credited for the extra day I had paid for. Overall completely painless experience. And I paid much less than $260 enterprise wanted me to pay. Loyal customer for life!

Nothing at all.

Cons:

I rec'd a phone all the day before I was set to pick up my rental and was informed by the customer service rep that the passenger van I was to rent was not available. That was about 16 hours before I was set to embark on a weekend trip with 14 young adults, not one that was old enough to drive. We scrambled and called every other rental agency and FINALLY located a van an hour away. After some juggling, cursing and praying we managed to get the van and have an awesome weekend, no thanks to Avis. I will NEVER rent a vehicle (or anything else) from Avis. They lost a repeat customer!!

Friendly receptionist. Choices of vehicles in class reserved. I returned the vehicle more than a day early, but didn’t get a refund for the day. That would’ve been nice. Also, I was quoted one price and charged more at check out.
