Mar 2024

I had a simple last minute change - to our flight number and arrival time - and Avis website could not confirm it, rejecting my information for no clear reason. The telephone number at the local office answered with a recorded message in Japanese and nothing further, which did not help. I wound up calling the north America reservations line, waiting on hold for 16 minutes, and the agent was unenthusiastic to say the least. The confirmation email arrived after our call, and showed no change to the flight numbeer or reservation. I had to get on the flight with no certainty that I would even have a car waiting for me, but fortunately at the office when I arrived, the staff was the usual hyper-competent Japanese experience. The Avis experience was only saved due to their action on the day, but in general was awful.

There's not any plug charger for cell phone. GPS on the car can not find some place, we have to use our own Google maps in our smartphone.
