Pros: It was great to get an automatic vehicle with all-wheel drive for the rate.
Cons: The communication was difficult. Scheduling an after-hours pick-up and drop-off is not the easiest thing to do given their hours of operation. Many flights arrive and depart outside of their operating hours.

Great choice for Belize!
Pros: Great car - we got a Kia SUV which made it easy to navigate the roads.
Also--when we returned the car in Belize city, they gave us a ride to the water taxi!

Most expensive car rental
Pros: the people at the counter
Cons: 600.00 for a mediocre ford escape for 8 days is steep
29 Feb 2016
Pros: The service reps at both pickup and drop off were very friendly, professional and helpful.
2 Mar 2016
Cons: Alamo doesn't seem to have any of their own cars and pass you off to a local company called crystal who jacks up the price on you its not a huge amount but it's defiantly a shady operation there.
24 Apr 2016
Pros: staff was very helpful. happy to upgrade to larger vehicle; the one they had set aside for us was too small.
3 May 2016
Problem-free and reasonably priced
Pros: There was no wait to pick up our car, the desk clerk was efficient and didn't try too hard to upsell us, we had our choice of vehicles, and returning the car was smooth and easy.
18 Aug 2016
Pros: Fast service, fine auto, convenient. Most impressed with Rental Agent Elita. She was very professional, extremely competent and, couldn't have been more personable. I have rented autos in many places but, never had a better experience than this one.
26 Aug 2016
Pros: Right there at the airport. Excellent service on check in, car was great, fast easy return.
10 Sep 2016
Pros: Loved the service. Made us feel like we were in our home country
Pros: The rental process was just as ez in Belize as the US. The Suzuki Jimmy performed excellent and was efficient on gas which was $5 gallon. All the rental clerks were friendly and got us on the road quickly.
Cons: This is a tiny SUV , ok for 1 or 2 people but cramped for any more if you have luggage.also the maps are not great so have an alternate.
11 Oct 2016
Pros: Not much.
Cons: I felt like the rental agent was trying to scam me. Nothing was said when I made the reservation that I would have to buy the $28.00 a day insurance that Budget offered. When I got there , agent said since I was using a Visa card, I had to. No exceptions. I asked is there any way I can not pay. Agent said only if I had a Mastercard or Discover card. (She had already asked my husband if he had any other cards, and he said "no".) I did have another card so I used it. The agent was not there when we arrived, 4:35pm, she had already locked up. Some other agencies nextdoor said they could find her and did. The car was not clean, and it would not go into 4 wheel drive. She told us we woudn't need it, just stay on the main road. The car user guide was in Spanish, which we don't speak. On our return to drop off SUV, again the Budget rental was locked (2:30pm). Again a nextdoor agency recieved the returned SUV, but we weren't able to get the paperwork releasing our credit card from extra charges. It was a really pathetic experience.
31 Oct 2016
Pros: Diesel economy was really good i drove a lot so it was really convinient
Cons: The car that's the part I like the place was really small and very slow
8 Nov 2016
Pros: Car worked.
Cons: You told me and wrote the entire car cost was $202 and it was 50% more at $304. An added $102.92. This is unacceptable. No truth in lending or advertised here by KAYAK. First time I used KAYAK and will be my last. No travel company makes this large an egregious error and deserves to be in business. This is their core business and it is flawed. I hope others see this and I will do my best to tell all about this experience; as I travel globally frequently and many ask me about best ways to travel. KAYAK is not a service anyone should use and I hope I can keep others from using this flawed company.

Terrible car, OK drop off service.
Pros: They allowed me to drop off the car at a location closer to the water taxi, and then drove us to the water taxi, so we saved $25.
Cons: The car was not cleaned at pick-up, they required that I buy insurance when I had already purchased insurance online, and the vehicle itself did not accelerate uphill very well.
There were times that I thought we would get stuck on a hill because the Suzuki just would not go, not even in first gear. They should replace that car ASAP.
15 Jan 2017
Pros: Good tires, clean, pretty much as advertised. Reliable with 107,000 km on the odometer.
Cons: Had the usual lit up warming indicators like, service ABS system and airbag that you found with rentals in countries like Belize.
Cons: The agent was great - there just wasn't a car available.
And the insurance I had paid for online was not showing up in Belize and could not be transferred to the local rental the Avis rep put me in touch with.

Belize trip car rental at Avis
Pros: The trunk of the car could not close, that was a slight inconvenience due to the fact we had luggage and it had to be placed in the back seat of the car but overall the rental was great.
Cons: Trunk of the car could not close.

Kayak Avis Rental Scam
Pros: Upon arriving in Belize Avis did not have a car reserved for us and thecrental sgencies would not honor the insurance purchased through Kayak on line. We did end up getting a rental though another angency but the entire transaction through Kayak turned out to be worthless. You are better off working through the rental car agencies themselves as we were told.
25 Dec 2016
Bait and switch
Pros: Rented a car from Avis through kayak for my trip to Belize. Once in Belize airport Avis I was told no cars were available and sent to another company that would honor the rental price. However I ended up having to pay about US $150 more for the car. Also I was told the third party rental car insurance I bought through kakak's site would not be honored and was pressured into buying the local rental company's insurance.

Was closed when we landed at 5pm
Cons: I reserved this car a month in advance since I was traveling in a party of 6 and wanted to be sure to have a vehicle large enough to carry us all. Our plane landed at 4:45, it was 5 by the time we went through customs and retrieved our luggage, Avis was closed. We had to find another rental company. We were lucky that the other rental company had a vehicle large enough for us, but it was a 15 passenger van and cost alot more. I will never rent through Avis again because of this.
