NothingThey didn’t have the right size SUV for us. Very, very frustrating process.
2.0 MediocreDec 28 2019
Complete waste of my time. I made the reservation and I literally walked to the rental place and was told I couldn’t rent with a debit card and also that they did not have any cars available for rent. I was stuck for 6 hours waiting for a friend to get into town to pick me up. I was also never reimbursed the insurance on the vehicle that i never even rented. Horrible experience and I will never use hertz or kayak to rent a car ever again

9.6 ExcellentAug 30 2017
Great car and great rate, if you prepay.The rental, a Toyota Corolla, was a great car with low mileage. It was comfortable, had cruise control, and the air conditioning worked fine. The agents at the counter were friendly and acted in a professional manner.It was a bit difficult to find the rental office inside a car dealership.
4.4 OkayJun 20 2017
Not enough cars on handThe employees were pleasant and accommodating.Had me and two others waiting for similar size vehicles. Couldn't give ETA when they would have them. Did eventually upgrade size but had us all waiting one hour or more.

NothingFirst the rental office had a sign showing closed until 3:00 p.m. along with a hand written sign with new hours stated they were open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Car pick was scheduled for after 12:00 I arrived at 2:00 p.m. Secondly the computer system was down and they had no way of renting me a car. No back up or hand paperwork to do any rentals. Could you imagine going to a hospital and they couldn’t treat you because the computer was down. Poor service poor quality and extra miles on my own car that I did want. I don’t recommend Budget/Avis of Barstow, CA

VICTORVILLE LOCATION WAS PROFESSIONAL AND EFFICIENI brought a 1 day rental from LAX to drop-off in VV and asked what kind of deal I could get for the whole week. They gave me a deal that was identical to the 1 day rental price I paid for the remaining 5 days of vacation.N/A

Staff was friendly and up sells!The first vehicle brought out appeared comfortable but the tires were obviously worn. We were taking this vehicle across the country, thru the desert in 110 + degree weather. There should be better quality control on vehicles and their upkeep. The staff was very prompt and courteous in providing us with a better maintained vehicle.

You canceled my reservation a day after I booked and never notified me. Furthermore you confirmed the reservation 5 days after I booked. When I showed up to the Avis they had no record. I had to drive 2 hours to the nearest airport to get another rental.Communication. Horrible.
6.8 GoodJul 29 2019
Staff at Victorville and LAX were nice and helpful.I wanted a Sedan but was given an SUV crossover which I did not want. Nobody explained to me what to do in case I ended up on a toll road. I tried to pay the toll online but because it was a rental I couldn't do that, so I have to pay an exorbitant price. Dropoff at LAX was disorganized.
2.0 MediocreJul 26 2017
BologneAvis cancelled my rental without give me any notification before my family's vacation because they did not have the vehicle in stock and they did not want to honor that price for a larger vehicle or something similar like a minivan. I feel that was unfair and it caused me a lot of inconvenience and extra money. It may have been that particular Avis but no matter what that is definitely poor service!EVERYTHING! I WILL NOT RENT FROM AVIS AGAIN!!!!

Great service and more!!!This office went above and beyond helping me with my rental. Jackie was very personable and went out of her way to make me feel welcome while I waited for my vehicle to be brought up front. My truck was being serviced and I didn't know if it would be ready by the next day...this was only a 1 day rental. Jackie told me to come back the next day (by the same time I rented) and she would extend my rental at same rate. Of course my truck wasn't ready but Jackie saw me walking up and pretty much updated my rental and I was out of there in about a couple of minutes! :) Well my time with the rental ran out and had to return it but my suburban still was not ready ):< So Darren was awesome coming to the rescue and got me into another vehicle (CHEAPER) than my original one(rental). Finally got my truck back the next day and returned the car. This office and staff are very personable and knowledgeable and work very hard to make sure you are happy and properly taken care of. On a side note, even the attendant outside who cleans and cares for the vehicles before you as a customer receive them was outwardly concerned that I hadn't gotten my truck back. Great people who make this kind service a wonderful experience. Will absolutely be renting from them again.Though through no fault of their own, this location is a small one so there is no pickup/drop off service. Also no bathrooms for public customer use on site.

Not badCar was nice, clean, and ran well.That I was given a price of $330 for the week and when I went to turn it in I got blindsided by $500+.
10.0 ExcellentOct 24 2018
Great staff and great customer serviceEven though this location is always really busy, the staff always provides great service and never seems flustered even when problems come up. We had reserved a large SUV but found out when we came to pick up that we needed a credit card not debit card for that sized vehicle. The staff got us into a mini van that needed up working out better for what we needed and had better gas mileage.Wish it was more explicitly stated that you needed a credit card for certain rentals but now we know and can plan in advance for next time.
3.2 MediocreOct 24 2016
A Bait and Switch trick.The booking process.Got to the place only to be told the vehicle wasn't available and representative's attempt to charging us double the price originally quoted for an available upgraded vehicle. When we questioned, all the other representatives pulled an intimidation tactic, even going as far as referencing my "face". What a ghetto group of people trained to do Bait and Switch and intimidation tactics.
