What happens if I pick up my rental car ~45 minutes earlier than the reservation time? Do they adjust the return time to reflect that? For example, lets say my reservation was Sep 5th 10AM - Sep 7th 10AM, if I pick the car up on Sep 5th at 9:15AM does the return time automatically switch to Sep 7th at 9:15AM?
Normally not; you have to ask the desk agent to adjust it otherwise you'll automatically pay an extra day

If you return it on time you shouldn't get charged

Has anyone verified there would be no issues using B204400. From looking around online it seems to just be a Visa code that works to remove underage driver fees. For my Summer rental, most cars were still really expensive, but a few priced out super cheap including a Full-Size. I know there are a lot of codes going around right now that will be checked and you'll have an issue if you ever got in an accident, would like to verify somehow that this one is ok to use.
I just used this code out of DTW with no issues. It gave me $38 for a  full size One day rental.

If it's not prepaid or a points booking, and you haven't put down a credit card, they won't penalize you in any way
Make stuff happen.

Donít you have to give credit card when making reservation?

Does anyone know with Amex Biz Plat card, it says that you get free upgrade. Does that mean you can book the lowest level and get pretty much any car on the lot?

TIA.

I don't know this card.
Free upgrade typically means one level up, and based on availability.

I dont know if you will get Avis Presidential, usually they only give preferred plus. Either way email them at profile.update@avisbudget.com with your Avis preferred # and Hertz PC # and a screenshot of your Hertz status and ask them to match it.

+1. Tried a few days ago. They would only match my Hertz PC to Avis Preferred Plus.

When I enter my dates with default pickup and drop-off times left at noon, I get one price. When I change the times to reflect the flight arrival (just one hour before noon) and departure the cost is higher?

Is that normal, I didn't think/know that a difference of an hour has such a drastic effect?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I would imagine, like all reservations systems, the pricing is based on availability.
If a lot of people leave the return time on the default 12, then there "should" be more cars available after 12 than before 12.

If it's Thursday you will get a weekend price at noon

Thanks. My days are Sunday  - Wednesday.

So, is it safe to keep it at noon if I'm arrive at 10:30?

Booked a car but didnt pick it up, went online to cancel (about the time of the rental) and there was no cancel option. Then I got a rental agreement by email, that states the time out, as if I took it.

I called Avis and they said if I didnt pick it up, then it will cancel itself, but I never had this before and it seems odd. Is this normal?

ETA: I got a cancelled email

I returned the car yesterday, but never got an email confirming it. I pulled up to where the guy said to leave it and I left.

I emailed them and they just replied "Our records indicate the vehicle was not checked-in at the time of your return"

huh??
