8.0 ExcellentMay 11 2021
Pros: yesCons: cigarette smoke noticeable
10.0 ExcellentSep 15 2020
Pros: Staff was amazing. In and out super quick, no issues.Cons: Great rental experience- not much could have been improved.
2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2020
Pros: NothingCons: I've made reservation for noon time, I've showed up at 12:15 and nobody was there, apparently they close at 12, but there was no clear mention of it during reservation steps. I rented a vehicle from Enterprise and lost an hour because of it.
9.6 ExcellentSep 9 2019
Pros: No hidden or additional costs.Cons: It would be great to have the option for a pickup and drop off service!
2.0 MediocreAug 12 2019
Pros: nothing, i had the trip set to be at the airport hertz for obvious reasons and somehow it got changed to the Stevens creek one for whatever reason; ok its 20 min away and i will have to pay 40$ in Lyft rates to get there and back which adds to cost and is an inconvenience but fine it was a decentCons: rate, until i got there and get hit in the face with a 260 additional cost?! excuse me i only went with Hertz because of the 220 rental "total" cost and then you fee me for being 21? an additional 110% outrageous and a rip off. i was taken advantage and on top of that given a garbage ecosport instea
2.0 MediocreFeb 14 2019
Cons: Your website made it seem as if I was booking a car at the airport. However, when I arrived, I was told the car was 20 minutes away. With no way to get there, I had to pay 3 times the amount to rent a last minute vehicle, plus I was hanged for the original booking. Terrible.
4.4 OkaySep 16 2018
No one there to drop off the car with. They left early or something.Cons: Dirty windows
2.0 MediocreJul 21 2018
Horrible. Zero customer service. Lost money for nothingPros: NothingCons: Once you spend money you stuck with it. No one there to help you. All automation Throw your hard earned money down the drain. Rrental company won’t try to help you if you come through these guys because they don’t make money. You are a 3rd rate customer. Big mistake. won’t do it again.
2.0 MediocreJul 18 2018
ProblemsPros: I never got the car.Cons: My flight was delayed and the rental car company was closed. I had to cancel my reservation which was going to cost me the full amount. I haven’t received a refund yet, but I am assured that I will within the week.
3.6 MediocreJul 12 2018
Pickup Location was not at Airport as I requested..Cons: I paid and extra $35 to pickup the car at the San Jose Airport...when I got the rental counter I was told the location of my pickup was an off site location 15 miles for the San Jose Airport..Not what I requested...

3.2 MediocreAug 22 2020
Pros: Price did not show fees upon pickupCons: Show all fees instead of catching your consumer off guard
9.6 ExcellentAug 16 2017
Pros: The staff was professional an appreciated our choice of using their company. Nice selection of cars - ease of getting to the location. The return was as smooth as can be.Cons: we upgraded our choice of cars but was not told the price of the upgrade.
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2017
Refused car and went somewhere elseCons: I made a special trip to the office ahead of my trip to verify that they could supply me with a small car. I was assured multiple times that they could & even saw a car in the parking lot to indicate the size required. On the day of my trip, I was presented with a mid size sedan and I was almost in tears. I refused the car, made a new reservation, got a ride to Hertz at the airport, and left with a Ford Focus, over 2 hours late for my trip.
10.0 ExcellentMar 27 2017
TerrificPros: The way I was treated from start to finish.
9.2 ExcellentJan 5 2017
Great Experience, Very Little SetbacksPros: Extremely comfortable, great gas mileage, lots of nice features in the vehicle, drove very smooth.Cons: We received the vehicle with one of the tires having much less tire pressure and we had to go and fix the tire pressure ourselves. There was also old used bottles of water and mouthwash under the seats.
8.0 ExcellentJan 2 2017
Good and Not So GoodPros: Our car wasn't ready so they offered a free upgrade, fast service, no hard sale on extras. The only (2) problems we had was the guy helping us wasn't very knowledgeable about credit card issues and what he told us about how much gas we had wasn't what we had. When we returned the car it was the same amount as when we left but the guy said we were short on gas and charged us extra. Not to happy about that!!! Double play!!!

Pros: Staff was super friendly and car was very clean. Easy pickup and dropoffCons: wish they had after-hours drop-off
10.0 ExcellentJun 5 2021
Pros: EverythingCons: Nothing
4.0 OkayApr 20 2021
Pros: Staff was inept and inexperienced to handle a simple situation. We liked the car model.Cons: The car was not cleaned at all. Surprising they rented out without cleaning and sanitizing in COVID times. After bringing this issue to the agent, he said he could not help it. I was mad but had no option but to take it. Myself and two of my family members cleaned the car inside out for two hours before starting the trip. Horrible experience. Won’t rent from Avis again.
6.4 GoodJul 5 2020
Cons: The car needs a good wash
2.0 MediocreMay 22 2017
Rude staff and charges one way feePros: Did not like anythingCons: The associate was rude and acted like it was my fault that I was being charges one way fee. Despite of the fact that I made a call before I went to return the car and that I was provided a case number, he refused to acknowledge it. He LITERELLY threw the car key and the papers with all the information at me saying that he will not close up the contract until I pay the amount I was required. I was promised a refund in 2 days. That was on 12th of May, no refund, blocked international bank account, daily overdraft fees and terrible customer service since then. Rented the car with Avis now, and never again. If I don't see my refund soon, lawsuit is the last option.
7.6 GoodJan 31 2017
Pros: Good value for the price we paid. The other car companies were 2x the price.Cons: No overnight dropoff at this location. Was not told the insurance i bought was not though Avis directly. It was through a 3rd party.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2017
Pros: Called me a day before my travel that they do not have cars and are not able to provide me car. I had booked 2 months ago to avoid such thing. At least they called me so leaving with 1 star.
10.0 ExcellentDec 28 2016
Pros: Not as crowded as rental car services at San Jose Airport.Cons: Not much selection to choose from.

2.0 MediocreFeb 25 2021
Cons: I went to pick up my car and the location was closed. I spent $40 on Uber ans had to scramble to find another rental. Spent three days prior calling customer service to confirm but no one would answer. Hours of location should be detailed in the confirmation email.
2.0 MediocreAug 17 2020
Cons: They cancelled my reaervation 2 hours before pick up time. Staff was rude and unhelpful.
2.8 MediocreMay 17 2018
Cons: When I rented the car, my confirmation said that pick up was at the airport location in San Jose. When I arrived at that location the employee said it was not that location and if I wanted to rent from them it would be an additional 30% in taxes because it was at the airport. At this point I was not about to travel all over San Jose to try to locate the car because I assumed that my confirmation would have correct information. I was traveling there to move my daughter out of her college dorm room. She has finals this week so there was little time to see her to pack up her belongings so I had no choice but to pay the additional funds. Also, on the site, there was an option for rental insurance. Normally I don't buy this but because I was with someone outside my family I thought it may not be a bad idea if both of us were going to drive the vehicle. When I got to the Budget desk he had no record of that and said it was an outside vendor that I purchased insurance from. Your site is very deceiving. I will not use Kayak or Budget again after this.
10.0 ExcellentApr 9 2017
Pros: Very efficient in both pick up and drop off
10.0 ExcellentMar 30 2016
Pros: New clean carCons: No ability to adjust pricing if I wanted a smaller car once there.
