Pros:The car was a very nice car, clean and new, drove well. Dropoff at the Pittsburgh airport was very easy.Cons:The pickup location at Jefferson in Rochester was hard to find, and I couldn't figure out how to get through the phone system to talk to the person at the office to get more detailed directions. Representative could have been more informative about terms and where the car actually was.Reviewed 29 Jul 2019

Avis Bait and SwitchCons:Avis did not have the car class that was confirmed in the reservation available -- in fact, they had no cars, only SUVs and a van. We had confirmed the reservation for a premium and without an upcharge only an SUV was available which was unsuitable for the event we were attending. We had no other choice but to upgrade to a van for an extra $100 or leave without a large enough vehicle. We should have walked away instead of agreeing to the extra expense. Avis will not consider any sort of refund for the extra charge which is very disappointing. Obvious bait and switch tactic and very unprofessional. In the future there are many other rental agencies to consider other than Avis.Reviewed 4 May 2018
