Pros:The staff at the pickup was very friendly and helpful.Cons:I was unable to find the return location, tried calling and no answer. Ended up being late by 20 min and getting charged for a whole extra day. The drop off process was pretty bad.Reviewed Mar 18 2021

Cons:The two hour wait at pick up was RIDICULOUS. Avis has TERRIBLE customer service.Reviewed Jul 25 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Poorly trained staff, tried to upsell insurance even though I’d already purchased some insurance on kayak site (agent told me that was worthless). At checkout they tried to charge me $660 for $330 quoted charge. Took a half hour to get “preferred customer” counter to reinstate quoted price.Cons:CHECK YOUR FINAL RECEIPT BEFORE LEAVING LOT. Poorly trained staff on front and back end (at SFO and PDX), rude manager, and worst of all they double-charged me when I brought the car back. Took half hour at “preferred customer” counter to get them to take double charge off and charge quoted priceReviewed Jul 22 2019

Good car to value ratioPros:Car was a good brand and good quality.Cons:nothing.Reviewed Dec 10 2018
review fromkayak
Cons:Upon arrival to SFO, we waited over an hour in line to check out. There were only 2 people available to assist customers and only 6 people ahead of us. For each party, it took between 10-15 minutes to finalize the reservation. The only questions I was asked were about insurance and gas. Otherwise, the person checking us out just typed on the computer for 10+ minutes. I will not use Avis again nor will I recommend it. I will use a company that just has a kiosk.Reviewed Nov 7 2018

Slow tellers and fast salesmenPros:The cars were clean and newCons:The line was so slow because the tellers at the airport for pick up or chitchatting with customers and taking up too much time. When I did find a tell her to help me he did do everything really fast but then upsell me on a fancier model car and didn’t explain the total cost at the end which caught me by surprise so I eventually the next day return the car that I didn’t needReviewed Aug 28 2018
