This location is not at the airport and will cost an extra 100.00 or so to go back and forth to airport. Air conditioner didnt work in the back . So they gave me a $60 credit. Experience was ok but would of rented at airport if known they were 20 minutes away and no transportation to and from location.

I rented a small SUV back in March for June in Honolulu HI. back in March the rental was cheap 250 for 6 days, then the car rental in HI blew up. I was so relieved that I already had my rental reserved. When I got to HI and went to pick up my car they told me that I had my rental pick up set at Wakiki not at the airport. No biggie I took an Uber to pick it up at the address they sent me to, only to find out that it’s been permanently closed since the pandemic. So I called customer support and everyone kept apologizing and saying that they could not help me but they could cancel my reservation. All of them wanted to help me by canceling my reservation. I said absolutely not to this “help” I persisted but they could do nothing for me on that day. Luckily my hotel was not far from the location the Uber had taken us. So now we were forced to walk lugging our luggage for at least a mile. The next day someone was able to help me and I had to take another Uber to pick up a car. Not the one I rented but I was glad to have something to get around in. Not a great experience getting it but ok once I got it. They still made me drop off the car at the new location they sent me to and I had to take another Uber to the airport so another 78 bucks down the drain.

Car battery died (no lights or anything was left on). Was told it would take at least an hour and a half to have emergency assistance come give a boost. Then was told I would have to bring back the rental to the same location for an exchange which was an hour and a half on the other side of the island. They should have allowed me to exchange at a closer location. Wasted about 6 hours of my day because they do not check their cars to make sure they are working properly.

Pros:

Checkin and getting the car was fairly easy and quick

Cons:

There wasn’t a shuttle from the airport to this rental location. Having to use an Uber from the airport was expensive. Also the key fob had many issues. May have been the batteries in the key but they tried to teach how to use the key fob when I returned as if I didn’t understand how to drive a keyless/push to start vehicle.

Pros:

Staff at both the desk and up in the rental garage were awesome. We received an amazing upgrade which enhanced our day's driving experience!

Cons:

The car's service light went on for Oil Chage almost immediately after we left with the car and by the time we returned in the afternoon the Add Engine Oil light was on, so while it didn't really impact our drive, I was a little worried by the time we got back.

Pros:

I liked nothing. It was a doomed reservation from the start, where the car wasn't at the right location.

Cons:

I went to pick up the car at the airport, only to find that the reservation was made at another location - a $50 cab ride away. I was told I could get the car there, but that it would cost $1478 instead of the $328 that I originally booked - for the same car and the same time frame. This was done in error (not sure who is to blame) but they could have been a little nicer about it and they definitely could have worked with me on that rate. But instead, they wouldn't budge and that makes me NOT want to ever use AVIS again!

Pros:

I liked that the car was in good shape and we didn't have any trouble with it. The instructions for picking up and dropping off the car were straightforward.

Cons:

The customer service woman who helped us with the paper work when picking up the vehicle was beyond rude and unfriendly. At one point, she even made me feel belittled when there was a miscommunication about purchasing vehicle insurance. She did not belong in customer service. It was one of the worst customer service experiences I've ever had...that is not an exaggeration. I also was shocked to find out that Budget wanted to charge me an additional $400 to drop the vehicle off at the airport, instead of in Waikiki (which is obviously more inconvenient for us). We had to drive the vehicle into the busiest streets of Oahu and catch an Uber to the airport. I can't imagine why Budget would charge $400 extra to drop the vehicle off at the airport location.
