When we arrived to pick up our car, the person had “gone home for the day”. Avis helped us. Kind of. They gave us an Avis car, but told us it was in the budget section. So we wandered for 20 minutes trying to find this nonexistent car. I went back inside to ask for help. And security said the Avis person had gone home. And directed me to the correct spot. The car had not been cleaned. It was not the size car I requested. We had to fit 3 adults and 1 year old twins, with car seats, double stroller and all our luggage in this car. It was not a good experience. Do not choose budget. Or Avis for that matter.Reviewed 9 Apr. 2022

The counter crew in Cleveland were beyond unprofessional. The clerk maybe said 5 words to me the entire transaction. Yet he spent two minutes talking to his coworker about scented candles, before even acknowledging my presence. after giving him my card and license, he then proceeded to talk to his other coworker about makeup. It was almost as if i wasn't there. There was no one else in line or at the counter, and what should have been a quick 5 min max transaction took over 15 minutes. Also, I rented an economy car, with gas milage in mind for my 200 mile trip, and was given a full size pickup that took 18 gallons of gas. Speaking of the truck, the drivers side wiper blade was dangling from the arm when I first tried to use it one hour outside of cleveland when I hit heavy rain. So I had to pull over and wait for the rain to pass. Not like I can stop and get a wiper blade in the middle of nowhere at 7pm on a sunday night. So much for inspecting and maintaining their vehicles. The crew in buffalo were great when I dropped off the vehicle. Understanding and very professional. The total opposite of Cleveland!!! Do Better Budget, Do Better.Reviewed 3 Mar. 2022

The car key was low on battery so the remote start didn’t work. Also the vehicle wasn’t the right size I requested the vehicle specifically because of the trunk space needed. Also the shuttle was late arriving and I missed my flight home. The driver says I’m sorry it’s my first day.Reviewed 22 Feb. 2022

The information on their website on how to get to their lot was wrong and outdated. When I called the local number I got a National recording. When I finally figured I had to take a bus I got to their office and there was a line with 20 people and only one agent. I missed my appointment for that day because it took over an hour to get a reserved rental car. No other car company had more then 2 people in lineReviewed 2 Oct. 2021

One hour wait to get the truck with little apparent effort to expedite. On retiring the car I drove around twice as the drop off point was blocked. Finally I saw on the windshield of one of the cars blocking the return that I was too go to the Avis drop-off which was another lap around the facility. Otherise the vehicle itself was great.Reviewed 6 Sep. 2021

Staff was friendly but not enough people were working, so the line to pick up was very long. The car had several dashboard lights come on. We were able to trade but had to go out of our way to top off the tank on the faulty car first. Drop off was quick and easy.Reviewed 1 Sep. 2021

It was a good experience. Cars are expensive right now so we should expect good service. When cars are more expensive than your airline tickets then I expect clean and a quick experience going by the rental counter. Truth is I've had more poor experiences than good but this time I must thank them, cause they did a nice job.Reviewed 14 Aug. 2021

Should have had a few more counter folks on pickup. Luckily I was 3 in line and not 30. Checking in is a very slow process.Reviewed 1 Aug. 2021
