Staff were all friendly

Staff at counter was very helpful.
Walked right past the rental desk area without knowing. Once you know it's pretty clear otherwise can be easily missed. Walked right down to where the cars were parked thinking the office was there too.

Very close to airport
The price was a little high and there were no staff when I dropped the car off so no one to check the vehicle and I had to ask airport staff about where to put the keys
August 21, 2016
Everything from booking the car online, picking up and returning the car were really easy. I was really impressed and happy with the car.
July 25, 2016

The attitude of the Avis staff both collecting and dropping off was excellent
April 26, 2016
When returning car to Avis there was nobody in the Avis return car park to receive us. This concerned me as I left the car in top condition but there was no one there to sign the car off. EG what if the car got damaged after I left the car off and before being checked by Avis staff
HelenApril 24, 2016
Value for money
Length of time had to wait to collect the car was way too long - no real apology made for any delay - was told it was due to increased rentals because of cruise ships - surely this could have been assessed in advance and extra personnel on hand to deal with those picking up vehicles
March 21, 2016
Excellent friendly service at reception, wonderful car. Easy to locate and drive.
My usual - no 'briefing 'on the car. eg I couldt open the boot. An attendant did it for me but didn't explain how it worked so I had the same problem tryng to open it and retrieve my case. up. I couldn't open the petrol cap and it took an attendant at the petrol station and the handbook to locate an inside switc No one at reception to return.
GeoffreyJanuary 22, 2016
It was my first experience of this model, as a personal preference I like the fiat 500 which I have rented before from other companies.
The only thing I was not so happy with was the brakes which were either on or off with no happy medium.
MichaelJanuary 4, 2016
The price and the ease of the hire, also friendliness & helpful staff.
SaraDecember 16, 2015
Claire who dealt with my booking at the car pick up point was so lovely and helpful, very chatty and pleasant a real asset to AVIS group. She was very professional and efficient, helpful I cant praise her enough. She really does an excellent job AVIS are very lucky to have her.
MichaelNovember 2, 2015
Very efficient service all round.
PaulAugust 31, 2015
Very happy and will be happy to go back
July 7, 2015
Easy to drop car off
Would be useful if someone gave you an overview of the car and what all the control buttons are for. Never did find the auxiliary plug for the music system. Also Avis had no record of me taking out the extra insurance and even though it showed on my booking form they still insisted on taking a credit card deposit
May 29, 2015
Good little car - Peugot 208 diesel
JohnMay 29, 2015
Very pleased. No problems
Everything was fine
April 25, 2015
automatic cars were very expensive.
PaulMarch 24, 2015
Everything was good. In the end it depends on price. I will definitely use Avis, not least because insurance deal was good, but I will look around to get best deal.
January 20, 2015
Your representative Charlotte was particularly helpful and friendly. It was Charlotte who made our contact with your company so pleasurable.
January 14, 2015
Petrol tank wasn't quite completely full. Disappointing.
December 20, 2014
Service and ease of obtaining car. Great customer service at desk.
Nothing really, but it would be great to have a lesser amount for insurance costs i.e. bringing the excess down to zero. That would be a major selling point.
CharlesDecember 11, 2014
The lady at reception was very helpful
The long walk to the car with our bags
December 5, 2014
Desk service good.
I book a golf style car. For ease of driving and reliability . I got a Vauxhall Mokka which was a horrible drive. The Avis attendant couldn't be bother to show me any information. Like dipping the clutch to get it started. Where the lights were as it was dark. Very poor experience . Would never hire this car again.

Excellent service at the counter in Southampton - my compliments to Lauren, who served me (and I hope she is feeling better!)
I am not convinced at the efficiency of the SatNav which definitely took me on a very circuitous route to the M4. Otherwise, no complaints.
RafaelNovember 4, 2014
I like the service and the upgrade option.
October 20, 2014
The desk staff were very pleasant
Had ordered a 5 dr car and initially was given a 3 dr car, telephone number on form was unobtainable so had to go back to desk with my family in order to ask for the 5 dr car
October 6, 2014
The car rental office, car collection point and return are so convenient in Southampton airport. Everything just flows effortlessly.
DavidOctober 6, 2014
Overall a good experience so thanks.
The car was not full. It was too late for me to point out that the tank was not full so this was disappointing.
October 2, 2014
Exceptional value Friendly, helpful and efficient service at the rental desk from Charlotte.
Rental desk is not well marked coming out of the terminal. Wandered the car park for a while till I found it!!!!!
September 30, 2014
Performances of the car, but this depends on the type of car, so what it concerns just the rentals, i think it was perfect!It's not that i didn't like, it's just a comment.
September 4, 2014
Trying to find the car
August 14, 2014
Ease and convenience of collecting car
Oil light came on. Small things like this should have been checked before I collected the car.
NanAugust 14, 2014
Difficulty in opening boot of car. Staff member ar pick up was very perfunctory when I could not open the boot. The boot continued to be a problem over 2 days hire. Same chap on return just as dismissive as on first day. Not good advert for Avis
August 12, 2014
The vehicle had scratches down the sides
July 28, 2014
The car return was very quick and efficient. Very important.
The drop off point still left quite a distance to walk to the airport.
