Very difficult to locate drop off at Glasgow airport due to road construction and poor signage Process took 30 minutes when already late for flight check in.
AlasdairFebruary 19, 2017
Great service, and a great car.
Nothing negative to say about my experience.

Car wasn't actually full with petrol although I was told that it was. Situation was resolved but it meant I had to call AVIS to explain that it was only half full and that I would return it half full. Could have done without this but no major problem.
LindaOctober 25, 2016
Very quick and easy to pick up the car, no queue. Staff were very helpful. Upgrade was gratefully received!
September 18, 2016
The Avis staff very helpful and obliging.
Could not understand why a shuttle bus would be available to reach the Avis rental office when you can walk to it. The courtesy phone did not work. The office is only just a short distance from the departure doors

Easy to order and get proper car. Easy to locate the pickup location
Very long waiting after getting the car because of busy time exactly when my pickup time was.

The Opel was a good car instead
The Ford we got first had a not working steering servo

Staff member was brilliant my flight was delayed until midnight she stayed until it got in and was very helpful.

I was told the car was a Diesel when in fact it was a petrol engine.
May 22, 2016
Dell at the service desk was very helpful
I rented a similar car in the week before Christmas (busy time!) at Glasgow airport from Europcar and it cost less than half the total price.

Good quality car, value for money
May 17, 2016
A good spec of car with bluetooth and iPod connectivity.
Only two of four desks open for pick-up and a 25 minute wait.
April 13, 2016
The people i met,happy and smart, very welcoming. The quality of the car as well.
Problems to park in the city. Some stress to leave the car "near empty" against "visiting everything until the last moment" But it is not Avis' problem nevermind.

Drop off was poor. One employee to check multiple returns, customers hanging around in the rain with their families not knowing the process. If I hadn't left my keys on the counter and abandoned the queue, it would have taken over 20 minutes.
MervynMarch 21, 2016
Efficient practical vehicle.
Engine too small to cope with multiple gradients on local roads
March 1, 2016
The car, reasonably priced & the speed of pick up & drop off.
Rental cars 'free' app was asking for my payment details when I tried to install it. Phone a staff member who couldn't help me.
January 7, 2016
The creativity to offer a better choice than the one I had made.
November 24, 2015
Location of Car Rental facilities, long walk from the airport and not a lot of cover from the wind and rain.
November 24, 2015
Staff very friendly
sat nav was not up to date
John-PaulSeptember 22, 2015
All staff friendly and knowledgable, had no issues at all
johnSeptember 19, 2015
The form is not completing - and so i thought I would put some comments. It was very busy when i got to to the desk on arrival and it did seem to take a long time for each customer - but your team were excellent and friendly (and upselling other clients which took the time). The car was in good condition, easy to find, and easy to return. Will use you again.

The upgrade was to a very nice car
Had to find my car in the dark and then had to work out where lights, petrol cap opening mechanism, braking system were on a dark wet night as a woman alone.
gilbertoAugust 28, 2015
Excelente Car, excellent price !
The car wasn't clean inside and have problem with over stearin!
PhillipAugust 27, 2015
being able to drop car back after closing time
Distance from our hotel in the new town area
August 19, 2015
Reasonably cheap car even though only booked 4 days in advance
MadsAugust 12, 2015
Can not understand why an online booking has to be keyed in manually again when picking up the car - very time consuming and costly for Avis and in the for the customer. Would have been convenient and more safe to get a brief instruction of the main operating instruments and buttons when entering a car, which you have not tried before - keys were just handed out and you were on your own, this in particular relevant for a driver not used to left side driving. I do find it a bit "milking" that the integrated GPS is deactivated on purpose and you have to rent a separate GPS, which furthermore reduces the operating convenience - would suggest that it was included in the rental price.

All Good - Rental Agent very friendly and helpful
DaniloJuly 29, 2015
Fantastic, efficient and friendly staff members. Highly recommended.
KlaraJuly 26, 2015
Great car
Only one person at the counter at the time of car collection, only one person in the process and two people in front of us yet it took almost an hour to get through ourselves - not what you want to do at close to midnight after a very tiring week...

helpful service, relatively efficient, except for the rental desk, which was very crowded. Recommendations in upgrade were good. Recommended GPS was a life-saver!
Recommended upgrade was a fine car, but was just too big for the tight spaces we needed to be in. Too much car for the driving we were doing.
June 15, 2015
Very good service

Ease of getting through paperwork and picking up the car. The service at the airport counter by the gentleman who managed to find my Avis Preferred membership no. and give me an upgrade for a nominal cost. The welcome feeling given as an Avis Preferred customer.
At the car pick up point it would have been good if somebody had accompanied me to the car and explained all the controls in the car. It took me a while to figure out how to start the car to begin with!
May 30, 2015
Did not get the vehicle I agreed to rent!
jamesMay 18, 2015
Quality of the car
Needed an explination of various features of the car - I was new to this type of automatic etc
May 17, 2015
Lovely and efficient staff.
Too few staff at peak times
johnMay 6, 2015
Overall staff efficient and friendly
Car rental out of airport. Should have desks inside and be bussed to pick up car. Long cold walk to rental desk. Should bus customers back to airport when giving car back. Most other airports do it.
April 17, 2015
Excellent experience
April 7, 2015

March 9, 2015
Only one thing the car was not full according to the display when we picked it up
JamesMarch 5, 2015
Guy at desk was extremely helpful and friendly, no fuss and easy experience.
Nothing. Good service and nice guys at pick up/drop off
February 28, 2015
I didn't like the upgraded car I was given I would have preferred the one I booked as I was used to that make of car , or would have preffered choice of upgrade rather that just given one at random .
February 7, 2015
Vehicle booked not available (via rentalcars.com), so downgraded to this one from Avis - although not the vehicle we ordered, we cannot fault the service or the vehicle hired from Avis.
February 7, 2015
Friendly counter staff Ease of location of hire centre
Didn't get the car I wanted
February 4, 2015
Friendly staff
January 29, 2015
Generally very good.
There were two issues with the car; stopped in traffic or stopped with the engine on resulted in a smell of exhaust in the cabin. And there seems to be an intermitant issue with the electrics as sometimes when I started the engine, the boot opened.
