Car had obviously been in an accident prior. Huge scratches and dents on passenger side. Car had message “needs maintenance” the entirety of drive and gas tank was not full on pick up. The inside of vehicle looked like it received a quick sweep but obviously was not thoroughly cleaned. Found trash in several cup holders and a hand gun magazine with bullets in console. Was very disappointed with the overall experience and told clerk about all of this but received no response.Reviewed 28 Dec 2023

Pros:The Staff was fine. The problem was that the rental car reservation was for a different place than the Pittsburgh airport where we needed it. I do not know how this happened. The result is that I had to cancel the reservation and rent from a competitor who offered a much better rate than Avis.Cons:Since this type of error happens frequently, I think the staff should be prepared for it and supply a competitive rate to rent the car.Reviewed 30 Jul 2019

All good until drop offPros:Pickup was easy and smooth.Cons:Drop off: When I arrived at my dropoff location the lady told me I would be charged $200 for bring it to the wrong location. Turned out the Avis in Pittsburgh gave me the wrong car that was reserved for someone else, and because of this I had to pay for their mistake. I called customer service right after and fixed the fiasco, but I will not be getting my refund for up to 14 days. The lady at the drop off in Rome,NY was also not helpful.Reviewed 17 Jun 2017

Top tips for hiring a car from Avis in Pittsburgh

  • When considering a rental car in Pittsburgh, PA, it's essential to factor in the local traffic conditions as well as the geographic terrain. Pittsburgh is known for its hills, winding roadways, and occasional traffic congestion, particularly during peak commuting hours. If you anticipate navigating through the city's downtown area or traveling during rush hours, opting for a smaller, more maneuverable vehicle can be advantageous. However, if you intend to explore the city’s surrounding areas and scenic countryside, you might want to consider a vehicle with good fuel efficiency and a larger cabin to accommodate longer drives.
  • Parking in Pittsburgh, PA, varies depending on location, and is another factor to consider when selecting a rental vehicle. In downtown Pittsburgh, parking is the most difficult, especially on weekdays. The North Shore near attractions like Heinz Field and PNC Park can be busy on game days, and rates may be higher during major events. The South Side, known for its nightlife, offers more parking garages, lots, and street parking, though availability can fluctuate. The Strip District, famous for its markets, has parking lots that can fill up quickly, especially on weekends. For your convenience, we recommend making use of free apps like ParkPGH and SpotHero to book parking reservations for your rental vehicle in advance.
  • Drivers looking to rent a vehicle through Avis during their visit to Pittsburgh will find that the company offers a rewards program called Avis Preferred that provides a range of driver benefits, including expedited check-in and check-out, priority access to vehicles, and the ability to earn points that can be exchanged for free rental days.
