Reviewer's quote

The agent told us that our reservation was never changed, and the customer service rep at the call center gave us incorrect information. When asked what number I should call to complain, she gave me the call center number! Unbelievably poor customer service. Avis rep lied, and committed fraud in...

I find it highly suspicious that they have mostly great reviews on their own website (with claims of unbiased reviews), yet every other website gives them abysmal ratings. I can't even review on their website as they "randomly" select customers to write reviews. So I'll just write my negative...
