Overcharged but best way to travelPros:Great car, easiest way to travel! Pick up was easy, even though I landed at midnight and dropped off at about 8am. All was very simple!Cons:I was quoted $265, got charged $345 without being informed. Just received an email to say the final charges- no explanation.Reviewed 20 Apr 2018

Very good experiencePros:Fast pick up, good car with great features. Very nice counter agent.Cons:Drop off required a shuttle, but that only tacked on a couple of minutes. GPS unit was a little frustrating... would recommend the WIFI option instead of a separate GPS unit.Reviewed 27 Nov 2016

MixedPros:The car worked well. The WiFi pack was a good deal for the value it brought us. The directions for drop-off were clear. Communications at drop off were good.Cons:Pick-up was awful. The salesman was lying to me about the price and no matter how many times I asked him to explain clearly, he continued to try to manipulate me. I felt very insecure the entire trip because of this. I didn’t trust him or Budget and expected I would have a very bad time at return. Thankfully, the return worked out fine.Reviewed 12 Mar 2018

Dishonest, scare tacticsCons:Absolutely disappointed at the overall value and treatment of my car rental experience at KEF airport . I received a Dacia Duster when I had paid for A Jeep Wrangler or similar. The duster was a low-to-the-ground, small, hatch back with 4x4, but was not hardly a Jeep or small truck as the Jeep Wrangler is. I assumed that the Duster was an equivalent, but we do not have Dusters in the US so did was not familiar with the type until we saw it. In addition, we were pressured to also take the nature insurance (in addition to the other insurance that we did purchase!). because she said that the roads were really, really bad down south (The roads were clear in the south. We walk to where the car was parked. Our car was totally covered with ice and could not even get the trunk open. And, has much trouble opening any of the doors as they were iced heavily too. The windshield was also completely iced. They parked so close to the car on the driver side that we couldn’t even open the door to get in after we scraped iced off. They told to check for scratches and bumps but we couldn’t bc the car was completely covered in ice!!!! The windshield fluid pump was frozen (safety issue) and did not work for most of our week. This was an over priced and dishonest car rental experience costing us over 700 and was much less quality than we paid for! (In addition, the car cup holders and side pockets were not clean!)Reviewed 21 Jan 2018

Awful pick up and drop offPros:Value price. Good location.Cons:Car pick up was a cluster. The line was over an hour line. Meanwhile from 2-6 Budget/Avis folks worked the check in, but they drifted in/out, and showed little to no sense of urgency. One manager in particular, worked the counter for a couple check ins, then went to his back office, meanwhile, dozens of customers wasting time in line. Not lost on any of us was the fact that your competition Hertz and Eurocar had 2-3 max waiting in line at any given time. Drop off was somewhat better, but zero explanation of how the process worked, we simply were sent to a waiting room with a couple folks behind the counter, no one saying anything. Every now and then they called a name out. Took close to 25 minutes to drop off, not what a time crunched traveller needs to endure!!Reviewed 11 Apr 2018

Hold on !Pros:Pretty quickCons:Car was to be filled gas, it was empty and I did not realize it until I was nearly at my hotel, and thankfully had not run out of gas. The pricepoint I chose was $49/day. Five day rental was about $600 ! I felt I had been sold a bill of goods, and I was. The agent moved very quickly and I accepted her offerings though I was not sure I should. It was a difficult start. We shall see how it ends when I return the car Friday.Reviewed 27 Sep 2017

Good experience overallPros:Reasonable rate for Iceland. Good fuel economy and condition of car.Cons:The drop off system was unclear. Should notify ahead that drop site is remote. Also, you leave car while they check fuel and damage and transmit that to staff inside who then clear your account before you shuttle to terminal.Reviewed 28 Jul 2018
