Never saw anything go so smooth. We picked up in Groton CT, dropped off at Logan. And then reversed the pick up and drop off on the return of our trip. 1, 2,3 we were in and out of there. Everyone was very friendly and nice. Nothing to improve on.Reviewed 3 Apr 2024

Was quoted a much cheaper price online and when I arrived it went from 143 to 600 including the hold on card then the car was a base model Chevy spark I asked for a refund and then they tried with other cars but they weren’t charged, so I went over to hertz and got a Tesla model x for 280 and a 200 dollar hold… would not recommend budgetReviewed 25 Feb 2024

We had to wait several minutes for Guillermo to find us a car. In the meantime, at least 10 other people in line behind us, got their cars from other agents and left. When Guillermo finally found us a car, it turned out to be the wrong size. We requested and paid for a full-size vehicle, and we got an intermediate sized vehicle that squashed people together and was difficult to store all the luggage. The return check-in went smoothly, but the pick up was horrible, in the car we got was not what we ordered. So overall, this was not a good experience.Reviewed 25 Sep 2023
