Reserved one size and was upgraded without request. Supposed to be for the same rate but was actually charged the rate for the upgraded vehicle.

Amadeo was super helpful, considerate, and patient with my trying out different cars! Excellent customer service!Nothing really except if it could have been free of charge!

The car was clean and had plenty of bells and whistles. The process was fast and simple.Because of COVID, I was hoping for plates from New England. There was exactly one car available at my reserved price point and it had New York plates. There were plenty of cars if I cared to move up to the next level. This seemed planned.

The staff was very friendly and quick, the cost was 1/2 compared to picking it up from the airport, and the vehicle itself was clean and a comfortable ride. Couldn’t ask for a more painless and hassle free rental car experience.The check engine light was on the whole time, but it did not affect the performance of the vehicle. I’d guess it needed an oil chance or scheduled service.

Where are they??Car was ready and clean.They moved location into a Sheraton hotel. Had to ask businesses in area where they had moved. No signage. At drop off there was no one working the desk. Just a sign saying they'd be back in 30 m and to complete a form and drop off with hotel valet. We never could find the "form".

We rented a Ford Transit Van to carry the seven of us around Massachusetts during a seven day vacation. Best decision ever! Avis accommodated us above and beyond. Athough we picked the van up at Cambridge Street, we were provided the option to return it directly to the airport. This worked perfectly for our group. The van was clean and in great shape. More though, it got excellent gas mileage for us and was in great shape mechanically. Definitely ten stars for Avis!

Charge was 66 dollars more than I expected.

Dropping off the vehicle was simple and the staff during the drop off was very nice.The car was absolutely disgusting. None of the windows were clean, the center console was duct taped together- since it was hot, the duct tape was melted and left a stick residue everywhere. The car itself stunk like cigarettes and marijuana. One of the tires had a slow leak that the man assured me was incorrect, along with an ‘oil maintenance’ message that I was told was incorrect. Just a badly maintained vehicle and since I was traveling for the month, I was stuck with a smelly, dirty vehicle.

When I needed to drive home, the check engine light came on and it did not work. It took a long time to get somebody. After a couple hours the car started to work. The office to drop office the car was closed so I had to drive to a different office to drop off the car.

The car was booked at the wrong location. Avis found us a car at the correct location and honored the original rate. I was very happy.

The staff were incredibly helpful.Kayak needs to fix the address for this location. It’s not in Boston - it’s in Allston.

Staff was friendly, location ok! All went very easy and with politeness and kindness!Premises on location could support an upgrade.

I put in for pick up at Logan. Without notice was moved to Cambridge. Had to call to fix my pick up location at a far greater cost. Dump and Allianz insurance.

Pick up nightmare!The vehicle was comfortableWhen we arrived at the Boston airport, the lines at Budget were so long it took an hour to get through the line only to discover the vehicle I reserved was not at the airport location, but at another Budget location on the other side of Boston and that location was already closed for the day! So we had to cancel our arrival day plans and take a very expensive cab ride across town to our accommodations that night. The next morning I had to get to the Budget office across town only to find out that office had been permanently closed and had to run a mile and a half to another location. When I finally arrived, the vehicle we reserved was there, but it had a spare tire on it as one of the tires had been blown out, and th vehicle kept chiming that it needed an oil change. I will never rent from Kayak or Budget again.

Misleadimg address for pickupWe found out when we got to the airport that to pick up the car we had to go into downtown Boston to pick up the car--we were trying to get to a family reunion and could not do that. Fortunately a wonderful agent rebooked us for a car at the airport or we would have been in trouble. The car description should also say whether or not the pickup is at the airport. The car was fine.

Update your pickup addressesThe car was fine, drop-off easy and conveniently located in Logan airport.My receipt gave me the wrong pickup location in Boston. I walked 30 minutes to get to a location that had closed ages ago, and then had to walk an additional 20 minutes (in the opposite direction) to get to the actual pickup location. Then I waited 40 minutes for a car. Thanks.
