The staff was helpful and very friendly. Had a very smooth process of renting a car when it was very unexpected. A lot of car options available.

Staff was helpful with quick, efficient pick up and drop off.This rental was for a body shop repair on our regular car. The shop estimated two weeks for the repair with the rental running from Tuesday 10AM. The shop owner did us a favor and worked the weekend to get our car done in 10 days, so we returned the rental car 4 DAYS EARLY. Agent said no problem, he'll adjust it then handed us the bill. The first week cost $38.50/day at the weekly rate. For the "extra" days they increased the price to $67.25/day. In other words, they charged us the same rate as the original two week rental. So don't ever expect a credit on an early return. Keep the car.

Great gas mileageKayak said “unlimited mileage” Payless said 2500. I had to make a big round trip in the car and Payless called me the next day and said daily is 200 miles. No continuity between the two companies or even internal to Payless. I rented because my car would not make this round trip....seems pointless if I’m getting restrictions.

Nice vehicle and reasonable priceReserved a pick-up truck (necessary for the purpose of our trip) months in advance of the travel dates. I arrived at the rental location to pick up the vehicle only to be told they did not have any trucks...they could 'maybe' get me a small sedan. We were told we 'could check back later in the day' that the unavailable vehicle was due to the Coronavirus...really??? I insisted they find a truck and that they call me when one was found. A truck did turn up and we were able to keep our plans for our trip...but the stress at how this started out was a disappointment.

The vehicle (a 2017 Chevy Malibu with 28,000 miles) performed well and had surprisingly good gas mileage range from a 13 gallon fuel tank. Additionally, the trunk was very spacious. The Malibu was very quiet and handled highway speeds quite well.The 4 cylinder engine was leisurely from a standing stop to highway speeds. The seats were of middling comfort, and less so on long drives because of a lack of lumbar support. Most egregious is the fact that the renter prior to me had obviously smoked in the vehicle, and the Hertz cleaning crew attempted to mask the tobacco smell with a horribly floral scent that was virtually intolerable. When I brought this up upon return of the rental, the agent merely offered a prefunctory "I apologize for that on behalf of the company." I would not rent from this location again.

Rental CommentsComfortable car with plenty of room inside. Car was clean and ready when I arrived. Best price of all the rental agencies I looked at.Only 1 key and no remote with alarm.

Bad Pick-up ExperienceAgent at pick-up site not pleasant, and not at all helpful. He barely greeted me, and did not explain anything about gas at return, just handed me the keys, did not show me anything about the vehicle, (I was the only customer.) Vehicle also had an unpleasant odor.

just terrible serviceThe convenience of being able to pick up in TAMPA AND DROP OFF IN BRADENTON and vice versa. Location is close to highway and easy to get to. Office is inside Sears so there is a place to turn in the key if you drop off after hours even though technically there is no after hours drop off accepted. The car I picked up on the way back was clean.The office is only open till 1 on weekends and no after hours drop off. I turned in the car the key and the contract at 1:05 anyway even though the office was closed. Next Monday tried to call-- impossible to reach by phone-no one ever answers--had to drive back to find a clerk who is completely incompetent. he charged me a $14 fee for "driving less than 75 miles" when actually the charge was for not filling tank even though I put in more gas than I used and turned in a receipt to prove it at drop off. When I picked up a car a week later to return to Tampa the same guy Joe recorded the wrong starting milage so it looked like I drove over 2000 miles. Just appalling and inexcusable service.

Staff at pickup was wonderful as was staff at drop off. We received a free upgrade, due to lack of availability of smaller cars. This was appreciated.The pickup location was in an almost abandoned mall in Bradenton. It appeared to me that the rental was not well cleaned or properly disinfected. There was some junk left in the trunk from a previous customer. The low tire pressure light was lit up. I just had the feeling that the car was not properly inspected or cleaned before it was re-rented.

The staff lady, Hendra, at picking up was very courteous and helpful. That is the only part of the experience that was good. The rest was a mess. The car had an "emergency" light showing some sort of issue all the way making me feel unsecure. It went on at the pick up location and all suddenly shut off two hours later. The car was filthy and with strong offensive smell. I had to place three towels on the seats saved I could place my hand bag and sit on the driver seat. The stearing wheel was disgusting as well. The air conditioning would work on and off. And to close, the drop off was a nightmare. There were basically NO clear signs at the drop off location to advise where was the entrance to the Avis drop off parking. Other car rental companies clerk's said this was a regular problem and that they had Avis customers coming to them for instructions on where to go and the Avis vehicle drop off. The other companies clerk's mentioned that confused (Avis) customers had drop off their Avis rental at the other companies lots and those customers were being charged for not having dropped off the vehicle (when indeed they had, just that they did following the poor signaling by Avis.It would have been better to not have the experience explained in the previous question. This makes me reconsider renting from Avis in the future. I am a lawyer who travels a lot for business. I cannot risk my business for this type of mess.

Reasonable rates Sarasota Bradenton areaJoe Ulisano, Avis agency operator was great to deal with. Avis had a location in the above airport. Rates were in $700+ range for a week. I went on Kayak & this location and $227 rate popped up. This is a $20 taxi ride takes 15 minutes to get to. it is a true hidden gem and a no brainier $$ wise. We had s new Chevrolet Equinox. We will always use Kayak and seek out Joe later this winter when we return to the area.
