Absolutely horrendous. I have never rented a car before and they gave me little to no information about the return process. When driving to return the car I called customer service for some clarity on what to do and it was awful. The guy didnt answer a single question I had which were pretty straight forward questions. Instead he kept saying “Mhm mhm good question” and rambled on about nothing I asked. I ended up hanging up because I was getting no where. They charged me $685 to rent the car for 2 days. $300 one way fee was tacked on during drop off because I dropped it off at the airport. I was never informed I couldn’t drop it off at another location. I thought it was a chain and they all shared cars. Terrible terrible terrible!! $685 DOLLARS is absolutely unacceptable for a 2 day rental. I would have dropped it off at the same location I got it had I known prior to returning that I had to, but I couldn’t go back once I arrived at the airport because I would have missed my flight back home! I feel completely taken advantage of.Reviewed 25 May 2022

The Avis/Budget rep at the Haley St location went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of, charged appropriately, and able to make our flight on time. It was much appreciated!Reviewed 28 Oct. 2021

Pros:After trying several rental car companies directly without success, Kayak was able to get me several options for my trip. It seems that rental car companies are not overly excited to rent cars for one way, day trips. I needed to travel 200 miles, one way, to pick up my new car. Kayak was able to find cheap rentals with major companies that I just couldn't get directly. Thanks Kayak!Cons:You should have been there earlier! Oh, wait, no that was my fault. Next time I know where I will check first.Reviewed 13 Nov. 2019

Customer service was not customer servicePros:They did listen.Cons:You would think that after all the hassle, I asked for a discount or to please find us something and honor the price I agreed to pay - no discount on the current issue, no discount on a future rental, etc., etc. They obviously don't need or want our business.Reviewed 2 Apr. 2018

Where are staff?Pros:NoneCons:We returned car 330 pm and not one person was in return area. There was a sign for us to mark contract with the mileage and gas level and drop it in the drop box. I understand if car is returned after hours but this was in middle of work day in the afternoon. Did not leave me eith a comfortable feeling.Reviewed 7 Dec. 2017
