Pros:At pick up I had to wait over an hour in a long line at the airport with many people who were not socially distancing nor wearing masks. There were only 2 people working there for Budget and Avis together! The reason I rented the car was to avoid airports and planes and covid!Cons:Have more staff and less wait time.Reviewed 20 Jun 2020

Pros:Car itself, a 21 Kia, was excellent, a nice car to drive.Cons:Waited over an hour and a half in ridiculously long line to pick it up. Poor signage sending budget people tp Avis for signin. Only 3-4 clerks to wait on multiple snaking line. I will report to Costco, never had such a long wait. Also charged for fill up when I returned but told her I had filled it up myself as I said I would on pickup, will see if $40 credited back. Car itself great, but will check out Uber for next visit.Reviewed 29 Jan 2021

Wow that guest experience sucked.Pros:Manager was pleasant and efficient when I finally met him. Even though I shouldn’t have had to.Cons:Budget in Fort Lauderdale was overwhelmed at dropoff and pickup at 1AM in the airport garage. That was my first 20 min wasted as one gate guard managed returns AND people leaving in fresh cars through a single gate (that’s just stupid). Then after a few min with one inside desk attendant I ultimately needed to speak with a manager. Painful for a routine dropoff. No reason that it needs to take 25 min to return a car. I’d be happy to pay a premium at Hertz for basic service levels for what should be routine activities for a car rental company.Reviewed 25 May 2018

You will be given an empty gas tank but tank will be marked as fullPros:This rental did not go well. When I showed up, I was given a car with a flat tire. No big deal, they gave me a new car.Cons:I noted the gas tank was at a quarter tank and came back in to tell the person who helped me. He said no worries, just bring it back how you got it. He did not make any notes. He did not mark my rental slip. When the car was returned, not only were they rude but they tried to extract money from me for not bringing it back with a full gas tank. I had a PICTURE of the dashboard with the gas gauge and they were still aggressive and rude. I had to threaten to deny any extra charges as fraud. Poor customer service.Reviewed 4 Dec 2017

Pros:Despite the fact that I reserved a car 2 months in advance, on the date and time I was scheduled to pick up the car I had to wait over an hour to get the car, thus altering my entire time frame for leaving town on a Christmas vacation with my family. I was very disappointed and will not ever be using Budget rentals again. The employees took their sweet time and had absolutely no concern about my needs and made no effort to accommodate me.Reviewed 3 Jan 2021

Cons:A tire pressure warning light came on right after leaving the rental center at midnight and I had to keep adding air to a tire during the rental period. The Budget counter and return areas offered no service and sent me to Avis. And the rental cost for a similar car has more than doubled compared to recent years.Reviewed 15 Mar 2021
