GOOLAM Johannesburg Airport 08 May 2018
A vehicle similar to what I wanted was available that was in a very good condition. The long wait in a long que at the reception to collect the vehicle
Anonymous Cape Town Airport 08 May 2018
The van was very economical The van we ordered wasn't available due to a slow puncture. We were told a replacement was coming from off-site and would take some time. Much later, the staff admitted they had lied to cover the fact they couldn't find the keys! Really not good enough. Honesty is always the best policy!
Erwin Cape Town Airport 03 May 2018
Every thing was fine.I only drove 300km in that week.
Andre Cape Town Airport 02 May 2018

Anonymous Cape Town Downtown 24 April 2018
The car was in good condition The GPS was inefficient and its maps, routes, places of interests and destinations were not updated over the last six months such that the location of my hotel (Radisson Red opened in September 2018) and various routes were not to be found through the GPS.
Anonymous Cape Town Airport 23 April 2018
The vehicle was fairly new which was a great comfort as we were 2 women travelling far north. I wld have liked a print out of the screen i was shown at the counter which indicated the costing of mt upgrade
Marilyn Port Elizabeth Airport 20 April 2018
Staff incredibly helpful and friendly. Great proximity to airport arrivals in PE and departure in Cape Town. Upgrade hugely appreciated!! Nothing to dislike!
Anonymous Cape Town Airport 17 April 2018
Liked it so much I wanted to keep ! A light little car , easy to drive , hardly ever needed the petrol topping up. Just a minor thing. As I drove away from the airport I noticed a crack in the driver's wing mirror. This hadn't been noted in the rental agreement.
Stewart Cape Town Airport 17 April 2018
Ease of drop off Dirty car but no water in Cape Town so complaint withdrawn. Car return is a long way from departure area. Other wise all good, these are statements not complaints. Thank you Avis

Emmet Port Elizabeth Airport 28 March 2018
We received the car on a half a tank of fuel due to the fuel gauge being broken. We returned the car half way through our rental period in a different Avis and staff were most helpful and changed our car for us

I liked the hot dog idea as well as the water bottles idea, very impressive and the staff is so wonderful I wish my car was very clean outside to see scratches but the service was great
Dhruvashree Cape Town Airport 13 March 2018
Amazing facilities. Great car. The management was really helpful. Thank you. Maybe not a fault of Avis but of the carmaker instead. When AC on the car was really dragging.
