Pros: Absolutely nothing good to say about avis other then I will never take my business there, and so should you.
Cons: Getting the run around with what card i can use and cant, on top of that you have to have a perfect credit score in order for them to even rent a car. Thats just wrong and creates gentrification of class. So if you have lots of money and a perfect credit score, then by all means rent from here. If you are an average American who works hard and doesn't meet their requirements, don't bother stepping foot in their store. I was treated so much better by their competitor that i will be doing business with their competitor and recommending anyone to never do business with Avis. The policies that Avis has in place is just plain wrong.
Pros: The price. The Kayak price was less than half the Hertz direct price.
Cons: The upsell. I had to pay an extra $15 for a "premium" van (Town and Country) that is exactly the same platform as what I signed up for ("Grand Caravan or similar") because they wanted to put me in a Nissan Sentra, which is smaller.
The "we'll sell you LDW but it's for two days not one" on the Kayak site. Hinky. I bought it direct from Hertz for more per day but less overall.
The van. Oh. My. God. I'm so glad I don't own one of these. The driver's seat is among the worst I've encountered.
