By no fault of my own, I chose a Mercedes SUV that was parked in the exchange lane, when I got to the exit gate, I was not allowed to leave. The gate attendant needed a second opinion and the person who came to assist was rude and said that we had to return the car to the exchange lane as it should not have been parked there. When asked why? She rudely responded that it was not her fault because she didn't park it there and she was not going to allow us to leave in it. She would call a manager to come out. When asked to call the manager prior to us moving - she responded with "calm down and just move the car". We then waited for several minutes for a manager. The manager ran up to the vehicle telling us that we could not have the vehicle due to flaws with the rear tire. It now had gone from being mistakenly parked to having mechanical issues. At no point did someone offer anything to help to rectify their mistake. Except that we all could get back out of the car with our luggage and go back inside. Pretty disappointing.
I was worried when I reserved my rental for my late night trip to Albuquerque and trying to find a car that would be available after midnight but Avis said they’d be there. So when I arrived at the terminal in the rental car area I was ushered through to the garage where preferred AVIS renters were to be met by someone with my vehicle ready. Finally arriving all the way out there hoping to be quickly seated in my new rental, I was met by darkness and my name was no where on the preferred rental board. I also could not find any attendant at all due to the fact that they all went home. So I made my way back into the terminal to talk to Melissa who thankfully was still there and was able to help me access a car and put me in the right direction. Too bad the left-hand didn’t know what the right hand was doing as the inside counter person had no idea of the staff activities in the garage. So if you’re arriving late, call ahead and get the facts about your car and be sure to grab papers and keys before heading to the garage after midnight. I did try calling from my connecting flight in Dallas just to make sure everything would be well when I arrived late in New Mexico by calling the Avis 800 number , which put me in a merry-go-round of voicemails that took ne nowhere close to Albuquerque‘s car desk area to ask any such questions. In the end, all was well.
Over the years, Avis has made a consistent decline in the quality and amenities included in the basic full size vehicle. It’s very disappointing to feel as though I’m getting less and less for the same amount of money I spend. In addition to this fact, Avis has become less likely to issue significant upgrades, unless it is clearly convenient for your station representatives. I used to be part of the Avis First program- what ever happened to that program? Now when I get upgraded, it’s to a gas-guzzling SUV (which I NEVER ask for because I prefer driving a regular sedan). It’s almost as tho you can’t get them rented- so why not give them as upgrades. I DONT LIKE RENTING SUVs. I just want a sedan with leather seats, and I prefer Ford since that’s what I drive personally. These requests seem to always inconvenience your local station reps. I used to be part of Avis First- a higher tier Preferred program that was actually pretty good. Bring that back please
I have used Avis for the past year and have told everyone I know how great the service and cars have been. Well, this Camry I currently I have now, runs great, was clean but someone had smoked in the vehicle. The car was dropped off at my workplace and when I got in the car I noticed it right away and didn’t have time to exchange the car if I wanted to keep my schedule. I have been driving with a rear window partially open even though it is cold, it prevents me from getting a headache. Just wanted you to know. I am renting a vehicle for a personal trip to Albany NY this weekend and hopefully don’t have this issue again. I totally understand that it is difficult to managed drivers who smoke vs those who don’t but it is a big concern for me and my wife. Thank you for your time. Mr. Albert Vazquez
I never had so much grief dealing with Avis in New Zealand. I rented a car for 3 weeks and had to extend it by 2 more weeks so I called Avis and asked to extend. Avis representative in Christchurch New Zealand was very nice and cordial and confirmed I can keep the car for 2 more weeks at the same rate. Few days after I returned the car I was shocked when I received the invoice. Avis doubled my rate from the day I rented the car. I called many times arguing with customer service in Auckland that I was told the rate will not change. A few days after, I received a very frustrating email for a lady (I still have her email on file) from Avis Auckland customer service letting me know the rate is the rate and my request has been rejected. She also added I need to provide her with the name of the person I talked to to validate my claim. She implied I was lying. Im used to Avis in the US which would never do that to any customer. But I guess outside of the US, customers are at the bottom of the list. I’m going back to National!!!
