Cons:Booked a van for 2 days w/ 150 mile per day. Arrived at location to be told that policies “of this specific branch” have changed and are now 150 “per rental” (!!!??) Long story short it’s obvious Non sense. Worker at location didn’t show any compassion and on the phone corporate couldn’t do anything because “we are reservation center and customer center only works week days”. Customer service non existent, bummer for loyal and respectful customers like us but I guess that’s the way it goes now.Reviewed 30 Mar. 2020

Cons:Booked a van pickup 5pm and drop off at same time 2 days later. The day off, 3 hours before pickup, I get a phone call from the location telling me I need to pickup an hour early because they decide to close at 4 “today”. Of fine. “Oh and also you need to drop off before 10am in 2 days because we will be closed at 10am”. “Or you can pay an extra $60 for late drop off”. What?? Late drop off would mean I extend pass my 24h, which I’m not!! If you decide to close early how does that become my problem?? Very disappointing.Reviewed 30 Mar. 2020

Good valuePros:Friendly guys to work with. Best value we could find online for minivans.Cons:Day 2 of vacation our van was dead. They came right away and gave us another van in about an hour. I figured that was about as fast as they can do it. But we were headed to SeaWorld with our kids and had to wait until the next day because we lost the best time to enter an amusement park-- early! They told us there would be some sort of discount. When we returned the van they took one day off our 8 day rental which was a $40 credit. This was ok, I just thought it would have been more for the inconvenience.Reviewed 8 May 2016

Terrible Customer ServicePros:NothingCons:I reserved a car through on Monday around 11 am for pick up at 1 pm. Upon my 1 pm arrival, there was one family ahead of me still waiting to be helped. It took forever for someone to come and even help that family let alone me. By the time they got to me, they had conveniently given away the last minivan rental to the family that looked like a walk in, that was standing at the register next to me. The guy helping me starts to stutter as he tries to explain the minivan I had already booked and had a confirmation number for was gone. They said they would give me a 12 seater van at the same rate which was the least they could do after wasting my time and messing up with my rental, but when I brought up the gas price difference, he made no attempt to at least compensate for the extra gas I would have to use with such a huge 12 seater van. They ended up sending me to another company, did not once apologize for their mistake, the other company took an hour for me to get my rental and tried to charge me more than the rate I had been promised would be honored from AVR. The morning I made the rental reservation on Kayak I thought to myself, "wow, I should do this more often for my LA day trips with my family" but after the horrible experience I had I don't think I ever want to do car rental again and forsure will never return to AVR. Horrible customer service and a complete waste of my time.Reviewed 22 Jun. 2016

Pros:Overall it was a great deal for the Van. Only we had to pay an extra $100 because we dropped it off in LA and I didn’t realize this until we made our final payment. The staff was very nice and accommodating during the pick up process. We had no problem riding the shuttle to the rental car area but it was a little confusing because the van rental is off site so we had to take another van ( which the number was there to call for a pick up) this might need to be disclosed in the advertisement.Reviewed 18 Oct. 2017

Pros:People were very friendly and overall service was good.Cons:A little more instruction for drop off would have been good and little faster processing of the vehicle when we arrived. However that is nitpicking as we had a very good experience.Reviewed 14 Sep. 2016

Pros:The staff was friendly and helpful. The drop off was super easy. We had a terrific vehicle for the cost.Cons:Didn't love that we had to go to the transit center for rentals & from there take another van (that we had to call & wait for). Also, we had to return by 2 or be charged extra to return it later to a different location (it was a Sat)- those were the only downsides to an otherwise great experience.Reviewed 17 Sep. 2019

Cons:Poor attitude. Had to wait for an hr and dealt with screw you attitude from the front desk. The place was dirty and shady. The van was old (60k + miles) and dirty. It was conveniently near the airport so that is a plus. Most of all is the lady at the front desk who was awful.Reviewed 2 Jan. 2020
