Pros:There was not much to like. I got a very dinged up and dirty Ford Focus with sunscreen all over the interior. More below...Cons:Very dirty. Had dings and scrapes all over the body. It seemed like an old model. I reserved and paid for a premium vehicle and was given an older model Ford Fusion. It had sunscreen smeared all over the interior and looked like it hadn't been vacuumed or cleaned out in some time. The tires were also very bald and caused the wheels to spin freely when the road was wet, which is just plain dangerous. I would have requested an alternative at check out, but the office we were in was overwhelmed with customers. I felt bad for the employees that were there. After all this I'm not certain I'll use Budget again. There are plenty of alternatives.Reviewed 26 Feb 2017

Wouldn't Book there againPros:It was cheap - CI$140 for a car for a weekCons:The service at check-in was a disaster; - they wouldn't take my debit card as payment (although there was no warning this would be an issue when I reserved the car online) - they tried to double charge me for insurance. When I explained that I had already purchased insurance on Kayak when I reserved the car, they told me 3 times that it "wasn't Budget's insurance", and if I got in an accident I would have to pay myself, and then follow up with insurance company (again, none of this was explained during the online booking process). - the car was dirty inside and out, and had a damaged door panel from a minor accident - the car had things that didn't work - the USB charger was dead, as was the keyless entry remote.Reviewed 20 Nov 2016

Very poor customer servicePros:The vehicle was adequate for our needs, albeit a bit worn on the inside and scratched on the outside.Cons:Service was quite poor, which is typical with my experience with both Budget and car rentals on islands. Rather than a warm welcome, the agent at the counter was abrasive and rude. He certainly made us feel like he would rather be anywhere else, and he seemed to take pleasure in being particularly difficult. A pity. He could have served as an ambassador for the brand and the island, and he could have made us feel welcome and excited to start our visit. Instead, he was the only blemish in our otherwise beautiful vacation.Reviewed 12 Mar 2017

Car ExchangePros:We noticed after a few days into our weekly rental on our car that the metal belt in the front tire was showing, thankfully were really only used the car to travel between our motel and our friends place on the beach so no long trips. We notified Budget and they were at our location about 30 minutes away with a replacement car very quickly without any issues at all. So although we didn't think the car should have been rented in the first place the resolved the issue quickly! Drop off was quick and painless!Reviewed 14 Dec 2016

Worst experience ever.Pros:Nothing!!!!!!Cons:While waiting online, three other customers came in with tickets from Grand Cayman Police for having unregistered vehicles. When I finely get to the counter the receptionist asks for my name and proceeds to advise me that my car was rented to someone else and that they will not be able to rent me a car. Meanwhile they had a parking lot full of cars. I was forced to walk into another rental agency a pay more money for not having reservation. I have never experienced anything like this...The other rental agency said it is common practice at Budget Grand Caymane. They rent you a car for a low price. If someone comes in and rents for more they will just give car away for more money and not honor reservation. Kayak should not reserve for Budget because they do not honor your reservations.Reviewed 25 Jan 2017

Pros:nothingCons:slow check in, beyond island slow. tried to pawn a 10 year old ford bronco on me instead of an SUV Tuscon or other as promised. Had to go back to swap car when another rental was returned. Haven't had a great experience in CI with a car rental place yet. Third time hopefully will be the charm, will skip budget though.Reviewed 4 Apr 2017

Pros:Budget personnel were quick, friendly and knowledgeable - great customer service!Cons:Car headrests were at an uncomfortable angle, with no apparent way to adjust the angle. Not the rental agency's fault - just the design of the car.Reviewed 17 Oct 2016
