8.8 ExcellentMar 26 2020
Pros: The staff was excellent. Very helpful.Cons: We were asked to bring the car back 2 days early because the office was closing.but Avis charged us for the full rental anyway.
4.4 OkayJan 6 2019
Sub-par car and extortionate insurance policiesPros: Functional SUV in a country where even the main roads can be sketchy, friendly and reasonably professional service.Cons: SUV felt poorly maintained, with sloppy steering, a glitchy transmission and numerous dings and small broken parts that we didn’t discover until on the road (a broken windshield wiper for example). The worst part was that my online quoted $360 weekly rate ballooned to over $1300 when all the local BS nickel & dime fees were factored in (including mandatory insurance when I was told on arrival that my third party Allianz policy which I’d already paid for was not valid in the Dominican Republic, even though I’ve used that company everywhere from Tanzania to Thailand). It’s very hard to maintain a rental fleet on a Caribbean island with limited resources - I get that. However, I felt like I was hustled/extorted, and should’ve been informed in advance that I had to buy ‘local’ insurance in order to drive my car away. Shame on Avis.
5.6 OkaySep 3 2018
The car wasn’t on its best conditionsCons: It had a strange smell inside, it had a plastic piece that flew off while we where driving, the suspension had some issues
9.6 ExcellentAug 29 2018
Pros: Very professional, very close to the airport, easy to get the car, easy to drop it off.Cons: The car had two issues. One of the tires lost a lot of air and also the battery suddenly died, had to open the hood and move the battery cables, then it worked (happened twice).
8.0 ExcellentApr 4 2018
CDWPros: Car was fine...Cons: They tried to tell me that the CDW that I bought on the website was not valid the the Dominican Republic and tried to make me but there's at $29.00 a day....then the put a $1000 deposit on my visa card..
8.0 ExcellentApr 4 2018
Cons: He hard sell and lying that all rental companies do to rip off people with the CWD...
2.0 MediocreFeb 26 2018
Pros: Nothing!Cons: I ended up with no vehicle and had to cancel the reservation. This is very typical (and chronic) of the Dominican Republic; I show up late a night with my family to find that they want to squeeze us into a car that barely fits 5 people (we are 6). This is not the car I had selected and was willing to pay for (my reservation indicated that it was for a vehicle that can sit 7 people + 3 pieces of luggage). Understanding that this happens all the time, I proactively started calling AVIS in DR a week in advance to avoid surprises. I was suggested to call the date of (again) in order to confirm that we were indeed traveling that date, and to guarantee that the correct vehicle would be there for us. I called the date of the flight, assured the care was already there, and still got a compact car with the excuse that there was no availability. I ended up taking a taxi at 2 AM out of the airport with my whole family (we just don't fit in a compact car!). I was not offer a discounted rate for the crappy/inferior piece of junk they were offering us. In addition, the staff is never helpful, and become rude and belligerent when one tries to indicate that they dropped the ball and all they offer you is to cancel the reservation (obviously for one to deal with the mess of being stuck at the airport). They are so incompetent! By the way, please note 1- I am Dominican, and 2- It happens with all major multinational car rental companies (not just AVIS) in DR, 3- They do try to coerce you into accepting bogus additional services and fee, threatening you that it is mandatory in DR, and holding you and your family hostage. So goddamn frustrating to start one's vacation (repeatedly) on a bad note because, notwithstanding one's best efforts and willingness to pay, one cannot get the vehicle that one needs and reserves, and have to waste one's vacation dates dealing with these type of issues. Such an unpleasant experience (again and again!). Thank you for your time and help.
5.2 OkayFeb 5 2018
Pros: Good service as usual.Cons: Tank was half full when I started, but Avis employee noted that the tank was 2/3 full and I did not pay attention to what he wrote down. When I returned the car half full I had to pay $20 extra for fuel. Given the already very high car rental price in Dominican Republic compared to Europe due to high insurance charges, this was quite annoying.

2.8 MediocreJan 30 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Everything
4.4 OkayMar 11 2019
Pros: nothing, the price was not honored and the insurance was forced upon you with no choice..Cons: everything could of being better.. they don't honor the rate that is booked on the website and when you fight for your rights they force you to take an insurance that is four times the cost of the rental.. they make up their own rules as it goes along.. I really dislike the rental process in the DR
2.0 MediocreFeb 4 2019
Cons: The car wasn’t available... no car was available... there was NO CAR we spent $155 on taxis to and from the resort instead. Beyond disappointed
2.0 MediocreFeb 3 2019
Pros: Horrible. Do not rent from any vendor at the airport. Walk out the door and down the street to local friendly rental car businesses. Less than half the price and no BS.
2.0 MediocreJan 29 2019
Cons: The entire experience was poor. It appears the rental car companies at SDQ airport collude to push insurance sales and rentals that are 3x the price secured through the KAYAK site. It was completely disappointing.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2018
Once we got there, we were charged $400 more for taxes and fees.Pros: Nothing.Cons: We were charged more than double what we were quoted, the car had major transmission problems, and the employees were NOT helpful.
2.0 MediocreNov 28 2017
The car we received was older and kinda of beat up, also we over chargPros: Unfortunately there was not much to likeCons: As aforementioned, we were charged significantly more the are reservation rate we were falsely told that he had to take 3 additional insurances , even though we were covered by our insurance company, and again by the credit card we used. We ended up turning the car in a week early and renting from Avis whom provided a much newer car, and did not mandate insurance that doubled the price.
2.0 MediocreNov 24 2017
This is a scam, check BBB postings on Twitter firstPros: First they made me cancel the insurance that Kayak sold me and then sold their own. They charged full amount, and a sizeable hold, and get this - they didn't have any cars, and asked me to wait an hour after taking more than 30 minutes for the paperwork.Cons: I asked them to cancel and it took longer than the rental period to get the money back
2.0 MediocreJan 9 2017
They dont honor the pricePros: Be prepare to pay double your reservation. I had to cancel and took uber instead
2.0 MediocreDec 26 2016
Price doubled when our flight was delayedCons: We arrived a day late because our flight was cancelled and called Payless to tell them. Since we would be taking the car for 6 days instead of 7, the agent informed us the rate would double! we ended up finding another car with another company, but not nearly as good a deal as our Payless reservation because we had to book at the last minute.
