Just booked a 7 day rental through Costco with Avis. I have always used Budget in the past and had no problems. I have never used Avis and this is my first time booking through Costco. I got a better price through Avis and I signed up for Avis Preferred which looks like allows me to skip the counter. A few questions: How is everyone's experience with Avis in regards to quality of cars, customer service, hard upsells on coverages, etc...? I am not familiar with Avis at all. Are they considered a major company or a discount like Fox? Since I booked through Costco, do I still get to skip the counter with my Avis Preferred? I did put my Wizard Number in while completing the reservation, but when I go to the Avis website I can only pull the reservation up with the confirmation number. (If I go to future rentals under My Account it says no future rentals) How does Avis compare to Budget?
