Avis cleaning for coronavirus?

Is Avis doing any special cleaning and other procedures so that its cars are safer from transmitting coronavirus, which can survive on surfaces somewhere between hours and days?

According to the emails that I have received from Avis, and every other company that has my email address, the answer to your question is yes.

Would you know if they are actually doing what they claim?

Nope. But then again I trust Avis the least of the big three.

They still havenít implemented an aisle choice - they love the tracking devices in their cars to charge customers for tenth of a gallon differences in fuel - and they never clean their cars properly. Especially inside.

I always ask them for a few Clorox wipes before getting in the car. Have to do it yourself because there is no way to cleaning employees are doing it (properly, if at all).

Do they actually give you wipes?

TBH, I highly doubt whatever they say they are going to do. I use Avis (prior to COVID19 and travel bans) nearly on a weekly basis for years -- the cars are given a general wash on the outside and a bare clean on the inside. There is always garbage, excessive dirt on the floors/marked up interior door panels, mirrors look like they get a weird wet swipe that dries badly, etc. You name it. That was during the good times... now... I highly doubt much has changed. I can't even count how many cars I've stuck my head into in which I was assigned, NOPED OUT, and took an exchange or otherwise.
