Extremely dirty, lack of maintenance on carPros:Good gas mileage on MalibuCons:The car was gross... dirty, tired interior, and the car would shimmy and vibrate at highway speeds. I don't recommend Budget at Boston LoganReviewed 10 Aug 2017

good service.Pros:The check-in process was the most amazing car rental experience I've ever had. Quick. Efficient. Great customer service.Cons:The car wasn't the cleanest when I got it, honestly I may be picky, but the center console had some liquid spills that weren't wiped up and the car smelled like pot. I don't mind the smell but others might.Reviewed 26 Apr 2016

Long wait at counterPros:Car was fine, price was reasonableCons:Ridiculously long wait time to get the car. Why do the agents need to retype everything that has already been entered online?Reviewed 31 Oct 2017

Dead key fob didn't spoil the trip!Pros:No thanks to me I waited till the last minute to rent a car for our trip to Salem during the Halloween festivities so there weren't any on site(airport) cars available and the daily price was around $93 per day for a Ford escort nearly thirty minutes away! Thankfully,the friendly staff at Budget was able to save the day with a reduced price and an upgrade to a Mustang! Thanks Budget!Cons:Key fob battery was dead in our first car but they just told us to grab the next car over...no fuss car rental!Reviewed 15 Oct 2018

Very Expensive compare to skyscannerPros:I used to make flight bookings via Kayak, quite like it as the price is very good. Tried to use Kayak for car rentals, such a disappointment. I will not use Kayak again for anything in the future. As the brand itself now is all about grabbing the highest profit possible(not reasonable)Cons:The price I was charged is too high, compare to skyscanner. It's my fault that I did not do research enough and assumed Kayak is good with flight bookings, then must be good for car rentals too. Also the car hired from the rental company had an engine prbilem, called to replace and waited forever. The service is just appalling, but price is just unacceptable.Reviewed 18 Jul 2016

Pros:Upgrade to a larger vehicle but we would have been satisfied with the original choice.Cons:Car was dirty upon pickup. Right front tire had a slow leak and I had to refill the tire three times. Not safe to drive and it was a problem they should have known about.Reviewed 24 Oct 2017

MediocreCons:Rented a late-model Nissan Versa with only 8000 miles. Car was underpowered and the exterior was covered with sticker marks. There was an unacceptably long line to pick up: 55 minutes on a Wednesday evening. Even at drop off there was a wait. The best I can say is that Budget was a lot less expensive than its major competitors. You get what you pay for.Reviewed 30 Jul 2017

Cons:car rental office was closed when we went to pick it up. i booked this car with my flight and there should be some mechanism that keeps you from booking at a place that is closed when your flight arrives. if i entered a pick up time, as you normally do with a car rental, i'm pretty sure i wouldn't book for a time before my flight arrives. disappointed.Reviewed 4 Jan 2017
