I have booked car for tree day before pick up time don’t have vehicle even no exchange vehicle very bad service recommend nobody hire this company carReviewed 8 May 2024
review fromkayak
Pros:He offered me a free gas if I agreed to drive a different vehicle class from what i reserved to LAX. Thought it was a great deal.Cons:Turns out, he never entered that information into the system or the paperwork. I got charged $35 at LAX for gas in spite of what was promised. At the lAX Avis counter, they told me I had to deal with the Bakersfield AVIS person to get it cleared up. I called, and the Bakersfield AVIS location doesn't pick up, and the call goes to AVIS national reservation. After holding for 10 minutes, reservation says I have to talk to Customer Service. After waiting another 10 minutes, customer service says I have to contact that same Bakersfield location to have them verify what i said. When I said that the number keeps redirecting me to AVIS national, the customer service agent hung up on me.Reviewed 1 Mar 2021

Pros:great price, friendly staff. the price was very affordable for a one way rental from Bakersfield to LAX. Car was clean and fresh on the inside.Cons:limited amount of cars. they were out of cars when we showed up 2 hours before our scheduled pick up time. Had to come back during our scheduled pick up time and the car was ready. Not their fault but would have been nice if there were a few extra cars to accommodat changing schedules of customers.Reviewed 25 Aug 2019

Chevy Malibu.Pros:car was good, with power, drove wellCons:The headlights were horrible, not bright at all, especially at dusk and in the rain...even with the brights on... not happy with filling up the gas tank a minute before dropping off the car in Chico and only filled to 7/8 of a tank. I then had to go a mile roundtrip to put in a half gallon for the fuel meter to read full. Total waste of time.Reviewed 22 Mar 2018

Top tips for hiring a car from Avis in Bakersfield

  • Before you visit Bakersfield for the first time, you might not realize how large it is. While it isn’t considered to be one of the major cities in California, it’s more than 150 square miles. This is going to make it tough for people to get around when they don’t book Avis car rentals in Bakersfield. If you’re planning to spend time in Bakersfield soon for either business or pleasure, it would be well worth reserving a rental car for the occasion. It’ll enable you to get around with ease without having to rely on taxis and/or public transportation.
  • Generally speaking, the weather in Bakersfield is fantastic. It’s going to be sunny more often than not in the city, and unless you visit in December, January, or February, you shouldn’t have to worry about dealing with any cold weather. Even then, it doesn’t ever get that cold in Bakersfield and the surrounding areas. You should take advantage of this by thinking about renting a luxury car or even a convertible, if possible. You can soak up so much sun while you’re in town when you have the right Avis rental car.
  • When you book Avis car rentals in Bakersfield, do yourself a favor and don’t put a credit card on file for it right away. Why? Well, if you decide you don’t need a rental car at any point prior to your trip, you’ll be able to cancel it without having to face a cancellation fee. You might also be able to get a full refund even if you’ve paid for a rental car in advance with a credit card. But to make things less complicated, it would make sense to wait until you pick up an Avis rental car to actually pay for it just in case you decide that you don’t want it. Avis makes it simple for you to do this.
  • With Bakersfield being as big as it is, you’re likely going to get lost if you’re new to town and trying to find your way around in a rental car. For this reason, it might be worth renting a GPS system to go along with your Avis rental car. Avis can provide special add-ons, like GPS systems, car seats, and even additional insurance coverage, to those who believe they could benefit from these kinds of things.
  • Mini car hire from Avis in Bakersfield are around -24% cheaper than other car types, on average.
