Overall everything was good. Nothing special, except strong cigarettes smell in the car.

Car was clean, process was clear and straightforward. Long wait at pick up. Was very small queue (maybe 1-2 people in front of us) and still took well over 30 minutes to get to desk.

easy to navigate, good service, liked the car, would recommend too expensive in my view for 48hr rental
Anonymous Lyon Airport 20 June 2018
Almost everything was fantastic. Thank you so much. A slight problem for overseas visitors who cannot speak the language, was the distance that the office is from the actual airport. Especially with a lot of luggage to cart with us. There were 6 in our group.

The car was without winter tyres in February. It was very unpleasant traveling in mountains.

Personnel approach Long distance walk from airport building to AVIS office, bus not frequent enough in late evening. Along day is O.K.

No pressure to buy extra insurance Very easy to pick up Good Price for car compared to other hire companies
Anonymous Lyon Airport 05 September 2017
The way we were helped, especially at drop-off The car rental is difficult to find on the airport. It took too much time to actually find the location.
Anonymous Lyon Train Station - Perrache 03 September 2017
The lady at Avis pick up at Lyon Perrache station It took too long to settle the paperwork so I just left the car and the key to the parking AVIS staff and did not settle the paper work which I thought it was unecessary. There was no one at Geneva airport AVIS counter drop off desk France side. If I waited for the staff to come back I would have missed the plane.

Reasonable service from Avis. Insurance cover by CarRental. Have to change cars due to accident - replacement of front tire - Otherwise no complaint.
Anonymous Lyon Train Station - Part Dieu 09 July 2017
Nice, clean car, easy to drive (once you got used to it) Being used to driving a manual, RHD and petrol car, I had to get the hang of the LHD, automatic and hybrid car. The Sat-Nav was a nightmare to program. The location of your Antibes rental office was difficult to locate in the station.
Michael Lyon Airport 12 June 2017
The car was super The uncertainty about the full cover insurance I had with rental cars and being asked to take more ins.with avis

Rouchon Lyon Airport 01 May 2017
I've got a Renault Captur instead of Renault Megane. For me it's not the same category of car : smaller and completely different type of drive (high car) that I wanted.
Philip Lyon Airport 11 April 2017
The car was fine and met our needs. The handover was very brief and I felt the charge for a sat nav and set of snow chains was exorbitant.
Nick Lyon Airport 20 March 2017
We ordered two cars, One through you and one through Avis Direct. Base cost was much less through you and didnt get charged for so many extras, so much better value.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 24 September 2016
It was a good car, went well. Plenty of boot space. I couldn't work out how to use the brake until I googled it as the manual was in French. Also the woman at Avis just handed us a map of the airport and marked where Avis was but did not give us any instructions on how to get to it or where the petrol station was.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 20 July 2016
It was easy to change the reservation, date and local of return of the car. I got an upgrade of the car. It was very fast the return of the car at Paris madeleine. It took more than an Hour to pick up the car at the Lyon AirPort.
Claessens Lyon Airport 24 June 2016
Could give back car in Nice at 4:30 am even if closed.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 08 June 2016
Nice car in good condition and it gave no problems. Noisy brake just before stopping. Offsite office reached by bus ride from terminal was a bit disappointing. Waiting for the bus, which was very crowded, and then queuing at the Avis desk was. not a good start
Anonymous Lyon Airport 09 May 2016
Efficient service, clean car, simple return. The distance of all car rental at St Exupery Airport, a few extra busses to get there would be helpful if in a rush.
Anonymous Lyon Train Station - Part Dieu 22 March 2016
the staff was very nice and helpful with us the car was clean and we get a renault capture instead of a twingo! :)
Anonymous Lyon Airport 29 February 2016
The fact that you had to get a bus to the car hire place. Defeats the object of hiring a car.
Matthew Lyon Airport 15 February 2016
Brand new car, with all of the mod cons. Much better condition than I was expecting Navigating Lyon Airport to find the AVIS car drop off point. Not very well sign posted
Anonymous Lyon Airport 15 January 2016
Very quick & efficient drop off service Car had damage not specified on the sheet. So time wasted going back and having it updated. This was the same car I had already had to do the same thing with just before Christmas.

Anonymous Lyon Airport 06 September 2015
The car was great and most of the staff was helpful. The wait time was a little long. I did not like that I ordered a 4 door automatic, similar to a Golf VW and you tried to give me a 2 door automatic of another brand. But when I complained the manager listened and gave me the only other 4 door automatic available which happened to be a Mercedes C Class. It was excellent. I appreciated his help.

Good customer service
Peter Lyon Airport 10 July 2015
excellent service, fast and efficient was not told it was not an automatic, but manual, not a big issue, but should have been told
Anonymous Lyon Train Station - Part Dieu 03 July 2015
The car was very economical and was automatic although I booked a manual Inefficiency of the person when picking up the vehicle The fact that we had to go and get the vehicle from a parking lot a short walking distance from the avis office. this should have been brought to us at the spot The car was dented in various places It had no water for the wind screen so you either had to drive with a dirty wind screen or sort out the problem yourself
Anonymous Lyon Airport 02 May 2015
the staff was very professional The car was supposed to be "as new" but had serious impacts on the hood which I had to claim/show before leaving the parking
