Steven Auckland International Airport 14 April 2018
GPS unit was using old version software or needed update. Twice directed is towards a lake and once across a two lane express way. Out of date GPS unit.
Bruno Auckland International Airport 13 April 2018
AVIS staff was understanding and nice at desks of Auckland, Wellington, Picton, and Christchurch. 1/ there was no vacant places in the AVIS rental car parking of Wellington's ferry to drop off the car. 2/ it's a pity that it was not allowed to cross on the ferry with the same car

Martin Auckland International Airport 27 February 2018
Nice car in good condition. A service warning light came on in Taupo and we went to the local Avis agent who was very helpful and reassuring. We changed the car in Napier. Everyone was really helpful. We handed the car back a couple of days early as we decided to stay in Auckland and returned the car to the city centre depot with no problem. The screen washer was empty. (Interestingly, we went on to South Africa and the Avis car we picked up in Port Elizabeth had an empty screen washer too.)

BRIAN Tauranga Airport 03 January 2018
Ease of booking on line. Helpful and courteous Avis staff Price I felt was a bit high but realize that this happens at holiday time. Avis was the lowest quote we received which is to their favor.
Anonymous Greymouth Train Station 01 January 2018
It didn't have a CD player, we were not equipped with usb or whatever else
Leanne Christchurch Domestic Airport 29 December 2017
Great service on returning the vehicle and the car we ended up with was great No one at the counter when we got there. Was given a different car than originally booked and the central locking didn't work so the boot wouldn't open. Had to go back to service desk to get another car which ended up being the one I actually booked. It was a very time consuming process.
Rahul Greymouth Train Station 29 December 2017

John Auckland International Airport 13 December 2017
Everything was very easy and quick Windows on the inside were very dirty and covered in a film which made it hard to see in the sunset. I cleaned them myself.

Anonymous North Shore Downtown 29 April 2017
my upgrade was (luckily) to a manual car, which I prefer the on-line booking process that I used did not (as far as I could see) offer me the option of a manual transmission
Joye Wellington Airport 28 April 2017
Helpful staff and it was great that they were right in the terminal. My only complaint would be that I couldn't fit my suitcase (and it isn't large) in the boot of the Suzuki Swift. I rented a Toyota Yaris about a week later and the suitcase fitted easily in the boot so it wasn't visible when travelling around.
Pauline Palmerston North Airport 15 April 2017
Very clean vehicle
Anonymous Auckland International Airport 04 April 2017

Anne Wellington Downtown 29 March 2017
Poor signage and lane ditection at Auckland International Airport,went around 3 times to eventually we got into right lane to exit left. Still dont like the no debit visa card policy,but they took my NZ debit visa card, especially when I dont have a straight credit card.
Susan Auckland International Airport 19 February 2017
Good staff. Loved the car. GPS did not work. Avis replaced without question during the holiday but that did not work either. Why can't Avis leave the built in GPS systems in the purchased vehicles like in other countries. Did get a refund but would rather have had the GPS.
