When booking with Kayak.. I got a good rate at 400. avg.. When I arrived to Budget.. It doubled the amount. SO no. I would not be using Kayak for future car rentals. Also, budget doesn't use 3rd party insurance. It's either yours or theirs (Budget)Reviewed 18 Jun 2024

The gas amount I was told was in the car at pickup was not correct. I had to return the car with more gas than was in it when I picked it up.Reviewed 4 Apr 2024

The process for checking in, picking up and dropping off was really easy. When we drove the vehicle into the underground, there were already atrendants waving us down to park the vehicle. It was great as we were directed without having to waste time on looking for a drop-off area. We love the shuttle service to and from IAH. It saves so much time when you don't have to look for parking or look for the correct terminal to enter into.Reviewed 2 Apr 2024

What's the point selecting a car category if every time I get told "this is what we have, take it or leave it"? You've got me by the short and curlys, because I'm not exactly about to switch to taking the bus, am I? The check in was slap dash. The car looked a bit rough. I had to go find someone to record the damage to it so as to not risk being told I'd caused it. Car rental isn't some new business. We've had decades of doing this, so why did I have to advocate so hard for myself? The customer experience was completely lacking. Probably because consolidation has resulted in so few companies and therefore not much competition.Reviewed 1 Mar 2024

We were given the oldest most beat up van on the lot even though newer better looking ones were available. The van was dirty and had trash inside. The van needed an alignment. Every time you press the brakes the van would shake terribly.Reviewed 22 Jan 2024

Top tips for hiring a car from Budget in Houston

  • If you are a member of the Fastbreak program with Budget, you will be allowed to bypass any long lines in order to receive faster, more efficient service. This is especially true when you book Budget car rentals in Houston from the location at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH.) At the IAH Arrivals curb, find and get on the Budget bus and the bus driver will take Fastbreak members to the Fastbreak Canopy. At the Canopy, you simply locate your name on the monitor and go to the designated area where your vehicle will be. Choose a vehicle in that area and go to the exit booth, where you will present your driver's license before you are allowed to exit and explore Houston in your Budget rental.
  • When you book Budget car rentals in Houston, most locations offer free cancellation as long as you cancel before your scheduled pickup time. You can also purchase $75,000 of insurance with a $0 deductible for about $11 a day. This insurance covers collision, vandalism, theft, fire, and hail. Also, additional drivers can be covered for no extra charge. When you book Budget car rentals in Houston, you'll usually need a credit card to pick up the car that you rent and you will have unlimited free miles included in your rental. Baby car seats and special requests can be accommodated for an extra free.
  • If you are in Houston and need to rent a car in order to get to Galveston, you can book Budget car rentals in Houston in the direction of Galveston. Just to the southeast of Houston, the Budget location at 141 North Friendswood Drive is ideal. This location is just off the I-45, which heads straight across Galveston Bay and on to Galveston Island. This agency is open weekdays from 7:30 am until 6 pm, and open on weekends from 9 am to 1 pm.
  • The Budget car rental location at 855 Knight road is open daily from 7:30 am until 6 pm, and on weekends from 9 am until 1 pm.

This rental agency is right next to the NRG Stadium where the NFL team the Houston Texans play football.

Even if it is a game later in the day, fans generally arrive at the stadium parking lot to tailgate usually much earlier than kickoff time.
