2.0 MediocreMar 19 2021
Pros: I was sitting at the Philadelphia airport waiting for my flight when I received a call from Avis telling me that they would be closed when I arrived at 9:48 from Chicago. I live in a remote rural area, and was completely stranded in Duluth. It seems to me thatCons: It seems to me that if you have a car rental, someone should stay at the desk until the last flight comes in. The later, the more urgent this is.
10.0 ExcellentAug 25 2020
Pros: Cost 225 and staff
10.0 ExcellentAug 9 2020
Pros: Easy and fast pickup, friendly staff.
9.6 ExcellentMar 17 2020
Pros: Yes, easy pickup and drop off.Cons: All was good.
10.0 ExcellentJan 6 2020
Pros: Great staff, great car, seamless process
8.4 ExcellentJan 3 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful. Extended the reservation to one week because I wasn’t sure how long I would need the car and then dropped it back down to the original price when it was only one day after all.Cons: Low comfort rating is because the car (2019 Volkswagen Jetta) beeped loudly whenever the door was open while idling. I was delivering newspapers and over 7 hours I had to open the door probably 150 times. Fried my nerves and I have never despised a car so much in my life. But not Avis’ fault.
2.0 MediocreDec 3 2019
Cons: They were closed when we arrived had to rent somewhere else
8.8 ExcellentAug 23 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful. The car was very clean & nicer than expected.Cons: I dropped off my key & paperwork in the box yesterday at 11am & haven't received my receipt yet.
9.6 ExcellentJan 1 2019
Pros: personal attentionCons: $13.00 per gallon for refueling.
5.2 OkayMay 26 2018
Pros: Car was nice and cleanCons: First, the attendant claimed that my reservation didn't exist. I was lucky that the car I needed was available. Second, I was called in the middle of the day on my 2nd day with the rental asking if I can come back and switch it out for another car. I explained that I was working until late that evening but was able to drop it off once I finished work. The lady insisted that I go there immediately, or that someone could come and drop off the other car to me and pick mine up from my location. What's up with that?? I was in the middle of a serious project at the client site and was unable to leave easily to do the transaction. The lady never explained why I needed to switch out the car and wasted my client's time.

10.0 ExcellentAug 11 2020
Pros: Alexa is the branch manager in Duluth at Central Entrance. She was extremely helpful in a very busy time. I was stuck with a car that just didn't work for us, and she was able to move things around to enable myself and my kids to make it back to Minneapolis to catch our flight. outstanding customer service. Very efficient as well.
2.0 MediocreNov 20 2017
Terrible customer service.Pros: Easy to reserve on line.Cons: Showed up & they wanted an additional amount for the rental as well as a deposit. Nothing is mentioned about this hen you te reserve on-line about additional fees or deposits. This was a nonairport Location. So t rent at this location again.
9.6 ExcellentNov 8 2016
Pros: Great staff at Enterprise in Duluth. Very accommodating staff. Will use again in the future.Cons: The car would chug when you are starting to accelerate after being at a stoplight. When I returned the car I let them know of the problem only to find out it is a feature on the car for emissions/fuel economy? It would have been nice to know that ahead of time.
10.0 ExcellentJul 25 2016
Vacation made easyPros: fast service got a better car than expected
10.0 ExcellentJan 8 2016
Excellent customer service as usual!Pros: I was greeted warmly right away, and taken care of immediately. When I needed to extend my rental, it was handed very easily over the phone. When I brought the rental back, I was given a driver immediately to take me over to the repair shop where my vehicle was.Cons: I can't think of anything.

9.2 ExcellentFeb 11 2018
Nissan Rogue heating system not so goodPros: The service and ease of pick up and drop off. No shuttle just a short walk over and pick up at airport.Cons: The heating system in the very cold Duluth, Minnesota area could not keep up. You had to constanly turn the cooler air on to keep the windows from fogging. This was not a toasty warm car to ride in.

2.0 MediocreFeb 2 2017
I need certain charge reversed pleasePros: I made my reservation online to rent a car on 1/30/2017 and bought the auto insurance to go with it. The charge of $45 was billed immediately and I was to pay for the car when I checked in. He told me I couldn't get the car bc I didn't have a Credit Card in my name...I was upset bc I've never been denied a rental before and it was a huge inconvience for me. I didn't complain, and went on my way. However, the insurance charge is still showing on my account and was never reversed at time of check in. I asked the employee who worked front desk, but he said he couldn't help me. How do I go about getting these charged reversed? Thank you for your time, Holly ThomasCons: See above
7.6 GoodJul 6 2016
Pros: Price, car was clean, I was able to book easily online (and at the last minute).Cons: No economy available, was given a Ford Focus (which has terrible visibility). Also wish there was a pick-up and drop-off downtown rather than only the airport option.
