Staff was fineCar was unsafe. Bald Tires, bad brakes, collision warning system was broken and would randomly send alarms to the dash. Very distracting and concerning with the combo of bald tires and bad brakes.

The carl type was it did. We ended up enjoying the car.We rented the car for a 24 hour. And we're caught in traffic coming into the Oakland airport delaying our arrival by 30 minutes we were charged an extra day rental for the extra 30 minutes. We contacted customer service and were told a credit would appear on our Original payment form but this has not taken place yet.

Very friendly-went above and beyond. My phone must have fallen out of my purse into the rental. I had no idea, returned the car, got in my sister’s car and we left. The woman working there found it so quickly, somehow knew which car I’d gotten into and she found us to get my phone to me. I didn’t get her name, but her action saved me so much stress and worry. I would not have expected she could find us out there and save the day! Brilliant!Nothing

Staff at pick up in redding very friendly and helpful. Car was almost new.Price!! Much too expensive. I found trash in the car.
8.0 ExcellentFeb 20 2019
I thought price was a little bit high. I rent cars frequently and have never had to pay as much. The car wasn’t super comfortable and a bit hard to see out of. It was a Toyota Carrolla. It got great gas mileage and was clean although the smell Of car cleaner was a bit strong to me.

Barre of limited hoursWhen I first arrived ther was nobody working behind the counter. there was a sign that said be back in 30 min. When I returned , the sign had changed to the hours of operation sign . They close at 4:00pm. It was 4:12. Didn’t get my rental . Had to spend $200 on an Uber instead

SatisfactoryGood, clean carThe car wasn't immediately ready when I arrived, and I was displeased with the lack of assurance that the vehicle provided would accomodate five passengers as stated's the only reason I opted for the intermediate at the time I placed the order. Also, no CD Player.

Sneaky added charges at dropoffNice car, nice people at the agency.Sneaky added charges of $10-15 not reflected in the initial quote from Kayak. I don't know if this is a Kayak problem or an Avis problem, bit I don't like being given a quote for total charges that then goes up when I drop off the car. Kayak/Avis need to get their sh!t together.
7.2 GoodOct 22 2016
The car was clean and lived up to my expectations. I was happy to see I could plug my phone into the car for navigation etc.I reserved the car thinking I would pick it up at the airport. The rental at the airport had no record. When I showed them my receipt they looked on line and found that the car was at the downtown location. I have never been in this area before and didn't realize there were two places. I chose the first one that came up on the website. The woman Avis rep changed it for me but the price was more that originally. When we arrived at the airport we found our flight cancelled and no room for us on the later flight. Another storm was due in the next day so I didn't think things would improve. We were able to get a flight out of Sacramento so I asked the Avis rep about taking the car to Sacramento. Their computers were down so I was told to just go ahead and drive to Sacramento and turn in the car there and everything would be fine. When I turned the car in I had to pay an additional fee that I was not told about before hand.

Easy and convenietI picked up at Redding Airport (extremely small terminal) so it was very easy to pick up and return the car.
2.0 MediocreSep 15 2016
Avis counter at Redding airport closed prior to ouN/aHad confirmed reservations at Redding , California airport. Plane arrives at 4:45. Avis counter closed at 4pm. "New operating hours" sign. Got stranded. When confronted Avis person on the way back several days later, the answer was " Its Redding" " Call corporate office" Very poor service indeed!!! Beware!!!!
6.8 GoodAug 11 2016
Maybe a better system...The problem was taken care of and I didn't lose that much time.After reserving a car, it wasn't ready when I went to pick it up. Apparently the system had rented more cars than the location had. I felt bad for the person behind the desk. Seems like something easy to fix.
2.8 MediocreAug 8 2016
I was misled about the drop off pointThe car was available for pickup.The drop off point of Reno Intl. Airport that I requested was not relayed to AVIS and I ended up paying DOUBLE for my rental to drop off at the airport! Not Acceptable!!!

9.2 ExcellentMay 29 2017
Value and comfortI needed a car for a little more than a month. I got a Hundai Elantra that averaged 38 mpg (compared to my personal Jeep, that's a sipper!). It was comfortable to sit in for many hours a day, had plenty of pep and a steady cruise control. After 4600 miles, I'm very pleased with my rental.The first car the agent brought out was a dingy looking car with a noticeably stained interior. I couldn't bear the thought of living with someone else's orange soda and coffee stains for a month, so I asked for a cleaner car. The agent complied.
10.0 ExcellentNov 18 2015
Super Car ValuePersonable and fast. Our reserved car was not available so we got a free upgrade! After a 12 hour road trip, we were surprised by how comfortable we still were. No hidden fees. No BS. Just great service! Very affordable! Will rent from again!If your credit card is a debit card linked to your checking, you have to provide additional information and documentation that we weren't made aware of beforehand. However, the quick and courteous staff got everything handled over our cell phone.

Top tips for renting a car in Redding

  • Car rentals in Redding make it easy to avoid public transportation and explore the city’s attractions on your own time, whether you’re heading to the Sundial Bridge or the Turtle Bay Exploration Park. A rental car will allow you to conveniently visit some of the neighboring cities, including towns like Red Bluff and Chico. You can even head to sites that are removed from the city center, like the scenic Bully Choop Mountain, which is about a 1h 30min drive from Redding.
  • If you are interested in booking Redding car rentals, you can pick up your vehicle directly from Redding Municipal Airport. Simply head to the rental car center, which can be found in the airport’s main building near the baggage claim in the arrivals terminal. As the center is on-site, you won’t have to worry about taking a shuttle or taxi to get there. You will find several different companies to choose from, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz.
  • Some neighborhoods in Redding have many small, winding streets that can be confusing to navigate if you are not familiar with the area. To help prevent yourself from getting lost, consider adding a GPS system to car rentals in Redding. Downtown Redding has many pedestrians and cyclists, so always keep your eyes open for them when you are driving in this area.
  • Many of the highways in the area, such as 44 and 299, become busy during rush hour due to residents commuting into and out of the city for work. If you don’t want to find yourself stuck in this congestion, try to avoid driving on these roads between the hours of around 8am to 9:30am and around 5pm to 6pm. It also frequently rains in the city, which can cause slippery roads. If you are driving during a storm, always try to decrease your speed and pay close attention to your surroundings.
