We really appreciated the pick-up and drop off at different locations. Car was clean, comfortable, zippy and fuel-efficient. Staff inHoboken was friendly and efficient. It was nice to have the EZ pass for tolls.I was expecting a 4-door which would have been easier for us with 3 passengers. We were not sure how the charges would come to us using the EZ pass or whether there will be any extra fees for using it.

Great car. Pick up and drop off could have been better.Reserved a full-size car, and was given a very nice small SUV. Great car. Good customer service.Reserved the car for a 10 am pick up on memorial day weekend, and was told when we called to see if we could pick it up early that the car would be gone by 10 AM, so yes we needed to pick it up early. We would have been very upset to not have had a car available at our appointed pick up time. Drop off location in Hoboken did not open on time the morning we were dropping it off. A minor inconvenience.

Will never rent from Avis Hoboken again.Convenience - locationDirty car Low on fuel Scratches on body When I mentioned the above things - the agent told me that he was doing me a favor to upgrade me. I asked WTH! and then he looked up the reservation to realize he wasn't doing anyone any favor. Anyway, he wasn't helpful and the car was well 'a rental' at best. I had hoped better from an Avis location.

Worst service I've ever experiencedHoboken is a good location for pickup/dropoff, price was good.The service was the most awful service I've ever experienced in my life. The representative on duty was extremely rude and lacked compassion. The other passengers who were going to drive the car (the license holders) were running 10 minutes late (would have arrived 10 minutes after 7pm closing). He refused to wait for them to arrive to rent the car, which I can respect if that was a hard policy, but he was extremely rude about the situation and was pointing to his watch and abrasively closed the window on my face. I will never rent from Avis again.

1 Employee on Holiday Travel Week?The car was great - clean, ran well, and I even had to call Support because I locked the keys inside and they were extremely helpful finding someone’s to help me.Only one employee was scheduled on the Tuesday before a busy holiday for traveling and he was expected to manage both Avis and Budget? I didn’t wait too long in the grand scheme of things but you should definitely be more prepared to handle then influx in business for next year. I don’t recall the guy’s name but he did awesome given the circumstances. All I heard then entire time I was waiting was the phone ringing in the background but he didn’t have time to answer it.

No car!!NothingWe had arranged to collect the car at 1pm and when we arrived at 1pm the branch had closed for the delay. Even though I called to confirm with the branch a day before?? Ended up spending $125 on a cab to find a open branch which to nearly 2 hours and we ended up using another firm at Newark airport which was a lot more expensive too

MisleadingThey were nice peopleI rented this car through KAYAK after searching for a rental car at LaGuardia Airport. When I arrived in NYC, I discovered they had booked me in a rental car in New Jersey and would not pick me up at the airport, despite their advertising claims of "we'll pick you up." I am a senior citizen with a disability and not familiar with public transportation. I had to spend $65 to take a cab to new Jersey to pick up this rental car and was not able to drop it off at the airport when I left either. The people at the Enterprise location said it was not their fault because I booked it with KAYAK and not them. Whatever money I may have saved was quickly lost with cab fare and inconvenience. I guess I assumed that a car rental from the airport would actually be at the airport.

Good price unlimited miles. East pick up drop off service from Staff was awesomeWindshield whipper fluid, any would be nice. I drove through a winter storm through the Catskills for 20 miles to get to a gas station to clean my windshield and buy fluid. Scariest moment I’ve had driving, like low fluid I get. This was bone dry note to sell probably the economy wasn’t the best choice to rent for the snow

I didn’t like anything because I never received any service or a vehicle. I was there on time maybe even 30 min before pick up but never got a vehicle I was told to wait atleast one hour and added to the wait list. So I went to eat by the time I got back they were closed for the day.Atleast notified the customer of anything.

Couldn't give me a car at the time of my reservationI rented a car to go to my best friend's bridal fitting. When I went to pick up the car, I was told there were none available and I would have to wait at least an hour an a half. The on-site manager was completely unsympathetic. When I asked why there were a number of cars in the lot available, he said he couldn't give me any of those because they were all reserved (as my car was also supposed to be). He gave me the phone number for another manager, who was better, but the only solution was for me to drive to another Hertz location 20 minutes away to pick up a car. By the time I finally got a car, it was an hour and 20 minutes after my reservation time and I was 20 minutes further away from where I need to go, causing me to miss the appointment. I was also promised compensation for all of the issues, but have yet to receive anything and paid full price for my reservation. The car itself was also very dirty inside when I got it.

Very good but could use tech improvementBluetooth connectivity to phone. Steering wheel controls. Speedy service. Smooth ride.supplied GPS system touch screen needed recalibration: eg to select an R one had to tap the S; once connected to Bluetooth phone, the voice commands of the car could not find certain numbers; there should be some kind of drop off system even when the office is closed on the weekend.

Sad epilogue of what I thought a decent rentalFriendly staff, location reacheable by public transportationI rented a car for one day and unlimited mileage and I was charged for two days even after returning the vehicle within the allowed timeframe (just as instructed by the staff) I called the manager for details and I was still charged for the second day. Although friendly, the staff was not well prepared and was misleading.
