Pros:Terrible serviceCons:Honesty and refund for providing a cheaper class car could have been the right thing to do.Reviewed 3 Jan 2021

Pros:Staff was fine, relatively easy check in and drop off.Cons:There were drink and food stains in the car which means it was definitely not cleaned. Normally this would just be a little level of concern but when a company pledges to sanitize their cars during a pandemic and doesn’t even do the bare minimum to clean it, it’s very very concerning and frankly a lie. We had to sanitize it ourselves out of fear.Reviewed 1 Jun 2020

Didnt get your money's worthPros:I booked a car on line and i wanted a five seater. The car that came up was listed as holding five people. I was skeptical. I called Budget and they assured me 3 adult men could sit the back seat and two adults could sit in the front. In actuality two adults could sit in the front and two in the back. The third person had to sit on the laps of the other two people in the back seat. Also it was five degrees in Buffalo and the windows needed to be scraped every morning. No scraper was provided. We bought one. We rented the car for 38 hours 4:30 pm tuesday until 6:30 am in thursday. The cost was just under $300.00 thats outrageous. Price gouging during Christmas. We have rented cars at the Buffalo airport several times before for much less. So much for your Christmas spirit.Cons:The kn,y oostive thing was the car was clean.Reviewed 29 Dec 2017

Mark LasyonePros:The condition of the car was great, a newer Chrevrolet Malibu. Good gas mileage, great features, comfortable for long drives, etc.Cons:The pick-up from BUF was a fiasco. The untrained counter person took almost 20 minutes at the counter to issue my car. I then received a telephone call from Budget two days later indicating that the car was not supposed to leave BUF. I was returning it to PIT, and the person had issued me the wrong car. When I returned the car at PIT, they could not find it in the system, and I was paraded back and forth between the Budget and Avis counters. I still don't have my receipt which they were going to e-mail me within an hour. A miserable experience!Reviewed 22 Oct 2016

Not happyPros:The cost was appealing, but not in retrospect It was clean, it just smelledCons:-The car smelled musty with a bad odor -We were not correctly informed about the toll receiver in the car for Canada and did not use it and the charges are pending (with all the fees for a) not using the receiver and b) having to track down the car by license plate) -We had to wait in a long line to get the receipt for the car after returning it - other rental companies just print it at the car when you return -It was advertised as a "intermediate SUV" - the 2 adults in the back were squished and we could not get all out luggage inReviewed 11 May 2018

FilthyPros:Car got great mileage (Corolla).Cons:Empty gas tank, seats were filthy and grimy, used napkins, wrappers, etc. in rear seat compartment. Buffalo airport location very dark, so it was difficult to see interior conditions until we were in the sunlight and by then it was too late. Fortunately I noticed the gas gauge was near empty and had enough time to get to a service area on the NY Thruway. This vehicle was obviously not checked prior to rental. All I received was a one day refund. At least I returned the car with a full gas tank. Never again with Budget! And never again with Kayak unless something is done. By the way we travel at least twice a year, most times using air and car rental services.Reviewed 19 Aug 2016
