drop off in Paris was complicated
Anonymous Lyon Airport 11 July 2019
The staff were courteous and friendly and helped with questions relating to driving in France as it was the first time I have driven on the continent. It was very hard to find a petrol station to fill up near the airport as I had to return the car full.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 08 July 2019
Surprised with the quick return car check. I would have preferred a citroen car as mentioned in the ad. Very expensive for second driver, but I knew that.

The GPS wasn't working
Anonymous Lyon Airport 01 July 2019
I do not recall who I have spoken with but I can say this: the person spoke my native language, so it did help quite a bit. Your colleague understood the situation. My flight was being delayed, and I would not make the cut to get on time for the rental offices to still be opened to collect my car. He took initiatives on 3 counts: - Phone the rental

Car was excellent. Budget was easy to find and then easy to return. Staff friendly and helpful. It took over an hour to pick up the car. That is unacceptable, and with a family it makes the start of the trip that bit worse! Speed this up and the experience was perfect
Anonymous Lyon Airport 21 February 2019
Great service! Great car! Would use again
Anonymous Lyon Airport 17 February 2019
The person who assisted me was very composed and attentive. Wait to be served was long as they agency was understaffed.
Anonymous Lyon Train Station - Part Dieu 12 February 2019
The car was really good for the budget. Service is quick and efficient. The car had a couple of scratches that were not mentioned in the registration, so I had to take photos and send them by email. The car was was a little dirty on the outside. Not having any receipt when dropping off the car.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 01 February 2019
The staff at Avis / Budget Lyon was however very nice and helpful. the car I got did NOT have a full tank. I gave it back with a full tank. I expect a discount which I was told I would get - tbc. The state of the car was very bad (lots of damages)+ not very cleaned. It took an awful long time to get a car = their computer system was rubbish - I calculated an average of 10 minutes per booking = massive queue / wait
Anonymous Lyon Airport 22 January 2019
Excellent service. Very poor value for money when it came to pick up the car. I felt cheated by the extra charges. The cost of adding winter tyres was extreme and I also had to upgrade the car to do so. Just for winter tyres. Not impressed and very poor. The overall cost was much greater than anticipated. Disappointed.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 12 January 2019
