9.6 ExcellentOct 12 2019
Pros: Drop of super easy and close by. Staff were friendly and efficientCons: No one was at the return counter when I returned the car, I don't like doing this because if there is an additional charge it is hard to argue
6.8 GoodJun 21 2019
Pros: Drop off was very fast.Cons: The car we reserved was not there and they had no others like it. Had to give us a smaller vehicle.

10.0 ExcellentMar 13 2021
Pros: Everyone was very helpful and polite. The little Ford suv drove perfectly thanks guys😁Cons: Nothing
4.0 OkayJan 6 2021
Cons: They could not find my car after dropping it off after hours. The car was not as clean as it could be and the price was way too high.
5.6 OkaySep 9 2020
Pros: Car was a good option, clean and pretty new. No issues with the car.Cons: Pick up and drop-off were rough. Both took nearly an hour due to short staffing. The one staffer at pickup wasn't wearing a mask even as he cleaned the car, which he only did after we showed up to pick it up. At drop-off, waited 45 minutes just to hand over the agreement slip after exiting the vehicle.
2.0 MediocreJun 20 2017
Be Careful What You ReadCons: The rate on our car was nearly $500 for 4 nights. It was a Toyota Corolla that wasn't in all that good of shape. I made a mistake, and was looking at rates for $250 for the same period from Budget, but the location was off-premise and away from the airport. I feel burned on this one and will not be doing business with Budget again.
6.4 GoodApr 3 2017
Pros: The two gentlemen were very nice
4.4 OkayJan 27 2017
Car reeked of smoke and there was no after-hours kPros: Cheaper than other options in New HavenCons: The car was not clean and reeked of cigarette smoke. Check engine light was on. When I returned it the airport was closed and there was no apparent place to drop the keys.
8.8 ExcellentOct 1 2016
great experience other than the operating hoursCons: I wish the pick up at the train station was open later than 7 PM. I had to take cab to the New Haven airport to get car.

8.0 ExcellentJun 28 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off was easy. Staff was courteous and helpful.Cons: My overall experience was good
8.0 ExcellentMay 13 2021
Cons: Very happy that we were upgraded, but the car was not clean inside. Sticky dashboard and steering wheel, crackers and debris in door pockets and cup holders. The car also needed an oil change. My busy had to add 2 1/2 quarts of oil and wiper fluid to car.
5.2 OkayOct 6 2019
Pros: The New Haven staff member was not helpful. He did not explain to me additional charges that were added to my bill before he charged me and then was not helpful in helping me sort out a better course of action.Cons: The company could be more transparent about their fee structures online vs in the store. The company could make their workers feel more valued.
7.6 GoodAug 24 2019
Pros: Smooth transaction. Friendly helpful staff.Cons: Car was not clean when we received it. Windshield had dead bugs on it and interior needed a vacuum and wipe down from some drink spills.
4.0 OkayJun 25 2018
Terrible customer service and no supportPros: The vehicle was nice.Cons: Check in took forever. I was given the wrong car, had to argue and show the receipt from my reservation to finally be given the right vehicle. When I went to return it there was no one there and had to wait for over an hour for them to come back. I was charged an extra day and when I told them about it they said they already put it through and I would have to talk to customer care to get it refunded. So I called customer service who then told me it sounded like a legit charge and didn’t believe me that the check in and check out was that bad, asked to talk to a manager and waited on the phone for 15 mins for the guy to come back on and tell me there wasn’t one available and they would call me back. I still haven’t heard back. Worst customer service of any company I have ever dealt with.
10.0 ExcellentMar 29 2018

12 passenger vanPros: Unlimited mileageCons: Rear seats not very comfortable for a long trip
2.0 MediocreSep 17 2017
The place is no longer there!Cons: The rental doesn't exist any more.. There is a construction site instead...
4.0 OkayAug 29 2017
Didn't have car I reservedPros: The agent attempted to upgrade the vehicle type because they didn't have any standard size cars to an SUV. He also offered to let me go to another Avis and pick up the correct vehicle typeCons: They didn't have the type of car I reserved and they originally tried to give me an older compact vehicle. I didn't want an SUV because we were traveling a long distance.
2.0 MediocreJul 20 2017
Cons: I was only one hour late to return it because of the traffic jam. They charge me another day's fee!!!
