Cons:It was actually a bad experience. I inadvertently selected your downtown location. My intent was to utilize your airport location but your airport representative would not allow me to pick the rental car up from the airport without paying a $133 additional fee even though cars were available. Needless to say, that was extremely unfair and inconvenient. Being a traveler from out of state, I know nothing about downtown Cleveland but was forced to go there. In addition, your rental rates have become extremely too high (overall). Nearly $75.00 for a basic car is unacceptable. I feel cheated. Going forward, Budget will be my last choice.Reviewed 31 Mar 2021

Pros:I was planning my bachelorette weekend. We planned for a 12 passenger van because of how many girls where going and we could all drive down together . I reserved the van 5 months in advance. I called 3 times prior to the trip (included two days before) to check to make sure the van was going to be ready to be picked up. Both kayak and cleveland Hopkins verified it would be there. We had a tight strict schedule to follow so we could be on the road by8:00am. I scheduled the pick up time early so it gave us an hour to get the van and pack, and be on time. When i get to the airport rental in Cleveland i had my confirmation code and everything i needed to pick up the van. The lady at the front desk seemed panic when i showed up. She radio back because she did not have a 12 passenger van for me to rent. After 10 min she confirmed it was there but needed to be cleaned. She said it would take about 15 min and it would be ready. My friend and i sat down and waited. About an hour went by. We went back up and asked the front desk worker (who seemed really annoyed by us) if the van was ready. She said yes it just needed air and it would be out soon. My friend and i went back to our waiting place. The front desk worker (who didn’t know we where sitting there ) yelled out to the back workers where the van was and they said it’s still being cleaned. The front desk worker noticed we where sitting there. About another hour goes by and we finally get the van. It was still a bit dirty but at that point i was just happy then van was even there and ready for us to leave since we now where 2 hours late from our scheduled pick up and time we should have been on the road.Cons:I wish i would have no been lied to. I understand how crazy work places are and how busy travel is since covid rules have been pretty much lifted. I just wish if it would have taken two hours to clean the van and get it ready i would not have been told 15 min. I could have went back home to get other thing get ready for my trip. Maybe better communication when calling to confirm bookings to make sure the cars are there. When i was told it was going to be there and ready multiple times on the phone.Reviewed 16 Jun 2021

Cons:Drop-off closed on return. Driving less than 50 miles results in automatic charge for fuel despite filling up! No charge to credit card so don't know if agency properly billed me. (Usually they do not.) Great rate, but horrible quality and service.Reviewed 6 Feb 2016

Pros:The car was niceCons:The car I reserved was not ready. The location suggested that I could go get a car at another location and set up the reservation. He told me it would be $10 more. He didn't bother to tell me that it would be $100 more in taxes.Reviewed 7 Dec 2019
