7.2 Good5 Jul 2019
Pros: ConvenientCons: They charged me for every scrap of insurance they could even though we had a whole conversation about how good my USAA insurance was, they told me I would regret not getting insurance. We were only driving 3 hrs in low traffic. Yet when I got to drop off I had been charged for full insurance

9.2 Excellent10 Dec 2018
Cons: We were unable to deliver the car on time due to a snow storm. We still had to pay for the additional day even though we could not move the car due to 15” of snow on the ground and secondary roads were not ploughed.
8.0 Excellent13 Nov 2018
Great Customer ServicePros: The customer service was fantastic. From pick up to drop off, it was top notch.Cons: That particular vehicle needed either redesign or new tires. Did not handle well in the rain at all. I could not tell if it was just the design of the vehicle or the actual tires and did not check in the rain.

2.0 Mediocre20 May 2019
Cons: I reserved a premium SUV 1 week in advance. I called 2 days prior to pickup to make sure the car was there.

2.0 Mediocre11 Sep 2018
Can’t even believe itPros: Absolutely nothingCons: Arrived and counter person informed that I was at the wrong airport location (because the consumer understands there are two budget airport locations in a town as small as roanoke, when I am told by customer service, yes pick up from the Roanoke airport there is only one conclusion to draw). He then laughed at me for being so stupid in front of other customers. I got a rental which I have pictures of that was not only absolutely filthy, but still had duct tape on the doors and trunk. The gas tank was half full despite the “full” indication on the paperwork. After informing him I was from Alaska I got to listen to how much he disproved of my senator and how the death penalty should be reintroduced nationwide. I was pulled over for a taillight the morning after pick up (day of travel) and I was informed the gentlemen filled the incorrect last name out, completely different from my own by every letter (not just a simple misspelling) and was told to go to the rental place immediately (I have both copies of paperwork) the best part? He wrote my correct drivers license number clearly showing this was malicious. I absolutely cannot even believe what happened. It’s so unbelievable it sounds like a fallacy. I assure you it is not. I am at a loss for words from my experience.
10.0 Excellent24 Apr 2018
Great dealPros: Ford Taurus was exceptionalCons: Took three attempts to get the bill correct but finally got it right
4.4 Okay23 Feb 2018
Pros: The employee was kind and let me check-in early, the process overall was quick and efficient. No hard sell on extra services. Check-out was similarly efficient, same employee, he was kind and took care of the check-out even though I forgot my paperwork.Cons: The car was unclean and had a strong cigarette odor(I'm a non smoker). I took photos for my own sake, and would have asked for a second car if I wasn't late for an appointment. The odor stuck to my clothes and I smelled like cigarettes every time I got out of the rental.
8.8 Excellent23 Feb 2017
Toaster car makes more than toast!Pros: I admit to being a little prejudiced towards the Kia Soul because of their ads featuring hamsters driving toasters, but I was pleased with its performance. Plenty of room, good visibility, and pep. Was a little rough ride over bumps and kinda awkward getting out of the car, but overall was acceptable. I would still never own one, but I'd be fine renting that model again. Budget made the rental process seamless.Cons: Ride was a little rough. Hard to get out of.

8.0 Excellent27 Jul 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Only issue was the address I was given to drop off the vehicle in Tucker, Ga, was not the location. My GPS took be to a totally different building. Needed to make a call to find where I was to go. Return desk acknowledged it has been an issue.Cons: Only car I have rented over the last couple of years that did not have active XSM radio or navigation.

4.8 Okay5 Jul 2017
Once more, Avis rents smelly, dirty cars from Roanoke, VAPros: The price was good for a dropped vehicle.Cons: Once again, Avis doesn't really clean the cars much in Roanoke; it wasn't as large a car as I had rented (I rented a full size and received a Nissan Sentra) and the car was so beat up on the outside that I was concerned that I might be charged for it. Fortunately, the Avis at Dulles Airport has the same sort of attitude of mediocrity in service, so they don't seem to care that they are renting dirty, worn out cars.

Pros: Clean and well equipped car. The agent was nice and professionalCons: Agent not masked. Not informed when reserving that there would be an additional $200 deposit placed on my credit card. When at the counter I was told that it would be released upon return of car. I don’t know if it has been returned yet, but I was on a trip for an interview during the pandemic and placing an additional $200 would have made my rental decision clear Togo with a different company.
5.2 Okay2 Apr 2018
Cons: I tried extending my rental and was charged an exorbitant amount of money to do so.
6.8 Good23 Oct 2017
Great price for a 3 day weekend rental but couldn't get over how dirtyPros: Great price for a full size car and super quick easy pickup at the airport.Cons: Even though the price was great for a Hyundai Sonata we just couldn't get over how dirty, old, well used the car was. The car had close to 40,000 miles and looked it. Large deep scratch down the drivers side but the worst part was the filthy upholestry and windows. We had to stop 2 different times to clean all of the interior windows because you just couldn't see through the haze. The towels were black, literally black after wiping them down. The seats could not be cleaned. This was not a quick wipe up of a spill, this was deep down stained over the years dirty. While the price was great and it was indeed a nice large size car the dirty and super well used automobile makes me score a lot lower than usual.
9.2 Excellent21 May 2017
Pros: Great value and smooth pick up and drop off.Cons: The car could have been a little cleaner inside.
8.0 Excellent25 Apr 2017
Pros: The steering wheel on my Jetta made it impossible for me to see how fast I was traveling.Cons: I needed to return my rental early and received no discount. Way too many fees. I'LL drive next time.

Smokey carPros: The counter was easy to locate. The people were very friendly and easy to deal with.Cons: The car smelled like smoke. Really strong. I didn't think it was bad at first, but it got pretty annoying.

Pros: Staff we friendly enough at the National center and easy to reach by phone.Cons: The hours of pick-up did not match what I needed and the KayakRental car site did NOT give me that information. Luckily, I called ahead and would have had to pay an extra day just to get a pick-up BEFORE 8 a.m. I know that the flight schedule in Roanoke, VA is not large, but not to be able to pick up a car before 8 when that is the only outlet for National is a bit unlucky.

2.0 Mediocre20 May 2017
they were closed at the appointed timeCons: The National desk at the airport wa closed when we arrived at the scheduled pick up time. We set up the rental to be picked up at 9pm, which should have given us the hour from 9-10 to pick up that vehicle. We arrived less than 5 minutes after 9 and the desk was unattended. No one tried to contact us to ask us to arrive earlier or explain that they couldn't honor the reservation. Completely unacceptable.
