Pros: At pick up, she was not aware of the insurance I had with an external company which I booked through kayak and kept trying to sell me more insurance which was annoying
Pros: Drop-off was great.
Cons: I'd been told that the pick-up spot was at the airport but it turned out to be quite a ways away and we had to take a cab to get there. The clerk sent us to the wrong parking spot for the car and we had to find it on our own. There was a disconcerting "thud" noise and jarring when idling.
Cons: Everything - reservation system was misleading - called to verify reservation and was lied to - staff at the Richmond BC location was terribly and incredibly rude - will never use the Kayak system again to reserve and will NEVER EVER use Avis again
Pros: The staff was great.
Pros: SeaTac drop off was easy.
Cons: I chose the Downtown Vancouver pickup location to save time. I waited 1.5 hours in line to get the car. Do not rent from the downtown location if you are under any sort of time constraint!
Cons: Maybe have proper hours of operation posted online. Showed up at 5:30pm since it said they closed at 6:00pm. Turns out they close at 5pm on every day other than Friday (I believe). Thanks for the $240 cab ride to Whistler Avis!
Cons: They did not have the compact car we expected however they compensated us for it. The customer service was excellent.
Pros: Good pickup and drop off experiences. Reasonable and competitive pricing.
Cons: Car interior was not adequately cleaned prior to my pickup. Found loose trash and food (apple core, rice, etc.) under passenger seats.
Kayak screwed up my booking twice.
Cons: Kayak switched the location of my rental from Vancouver airport to another location so the booking was useless
How? Where? What?
Pros: Shuttle to cruise terminal
Cons: No instructions for center city drop off in Vancouver Drop off point was 7 stories underground. Forgot to note ending miles on envelope requiring a second trip to the car 7 stories down. Was late for cruise check in.
Cons: When we got to the Avis pick-up, they told the line of about 15 people that "We don't have any cars right now," despite everyone having reservations.
3 hour line to pick up car
Pros: It was a fine car
Cons: At the downtown Vancouver location, we had to wait in a line for 3 hours to get a car. A cruise ship dumped a load of people off and apparently they all also wanted a car. If we had known, we would have gotten up earlier to get there before the rush. At least we did get car. There were concerns they'd run out but they were getting cars returned and cleaned and giving them back out. After a 3 hour wait, we just said give it to us dirty!
