  • Deceptive Upgrade Fee
  • 7

Avis - Kona Airport! Don't ever rent from Avis and Nathan the agent, they use VERY deceptive practices. The rental agent said we were getting an upgrade and because we were local he would hook us up. The only thing he hooked up was his commission. Never stated that the upgrade would be an additional fee and in small print says “Agreed upon upgrade at49.00/Day”, it’s nice how they never use the $... Read more

  • Prebooked Hire Car

We arrived in Auckland and went to Avis to pick up a prebooked hire car. The young man who served us had no idea of what was required and what we had previously booked. When he reviewed the request he realised we needed two car seats for which he was not prepared to offer. Generally the seats are in the car waiting as they are required to be fit a certain way. This was not the case and he gave... Read more

I recently rented a car in Tampa FL. WE toured around the West Coast and then crossed over to Miami. On the last day of a 4-day rental I used a short segment of the FL turnpike. After I got home I received a bill for $18.03 whereas the toll itself was only $1.28. The explanation for this was as follows: Total Cash Tolls: $1.28 eToll Convenience Fee: $16.75 $3.95 per rental day, max $16.75 per... Read more

  • Bad Customer Service

Beware renting cars from AVIS in Cabo. When we arranged the rental at our hotel (Pueblo Bonito Rosa) they only had a Fiat 500 - not something we wanted, but there was no other choice either. We were concerned when the rental agent used the side of his pencil to take an old style imprint of our credit card - turns out later that we should have been more concerned. After snorkeling at a nearby... Read more

I booked an Avis Toyota Avis by internet prior to my arrival. When i arrived, they did not have the reservation but after some minutes the lady at the counter said, "No problem, Sir." and she proceeded with my reservation. After paying a 3900B fee for 3 days and a 20,000B deposit on my credit card, I proceeded to the parking lot to pick up my car. After a long wait, they showed up with a dirty... Read more

Just a total scam. Purchased a plane flight and car rental with Avis through Orbitz . After sitting in line for an hour the lady at the counter continued to try to up sell me everything under the sun. I said no to everything and she still charged me for insurance. Meanwhile, I had already paid the insurance with a third-party as they claim and they cannot be responsible for the third-party.... Read more

  • Excessive Charges

After a week of driving a rental car from Vancouver to Revelstoke, BC, CA I was charged $175 without explanation when I returned home and viewed my credit card. I thought this was for a chip in the windshield. That was on Feb. 2, 2014. I am viewing my credit card statement now on Feb. 28, 2014 and they are charging me $271.35 for something else I have no idea about. In the beginning, I paid for... Read more
