It was hard to find both pick up and drop off locations. The air conditioning did not work. The temperatures were in the 90s and my phone kept overheating so I lost my map. When I stopped for the day, I called Budget. They would bring me a new vehicle but I would have to pay to have the current one towed even though someone would be there with the new vehicle. I was in a dangerous position and they were not helpful.Reviewed 4 Oct 2023

Pros:I was able to drop the car off at the airport.Cons:When communicating by phone I would have liked to talk to someone in Minneapolis or at least the US not someone out of the country. I would have liked to pick up my car at the airport or at least provided with a free shuttle to downtown Minneapolis.Reviewed 11 Jun 2019

minneapolis reviewPros:Customer service was very professional. I mistakenly made the reservation for downtown Minneapolis instead of the airport. We picked it up there, but they allowed for return to the airport and waived the additional fee which was extremely helpful on our return.Cons:The car had a perfumey smell that we couldn't get out and it really bothered us. Otherwise everything was absolutely fine. The car was in good shape, no technical difficulties; felt safe.Reviewed 28 Aug 2018

Worst car rental of my life.Pros:The car was clean, although bigger than we wanted, got so so mileage, and seats were not that comfortable.Cons:The wait at checkout was over 30 minutes. I got a ticket because the car had expired plates. When I had to extend the rental due to airline issues, the automated system couldn't extend it, the first, second and third actual persons couldn't do it, and the fourth only did after calling someone else. This also took more than 30 minutes. They are trying to charge me more than $300 for the extra day, which is more than the original 5 day rental.Reviewed 15 Aug 2018

Pros:The service rep who helped me close out our account at the end was wonderful. I feel bad that he has to work in a place that seems to have so many screw ups.Cons:Waited in line at counter for 45 min to pick up. Had to go back to main desk to find anyone for drop off and discuss charge problem. I wasn't informed when I picked up the car at the airport that I was at the wrong location. I questioned the pick-up rep as to why the final price was $50 more than the quote. He said to call customer service later on. I did after leaving with car, they let me know I was charged $50 due to going to the wrong location. Had I been told that, we would have shuttled over to the correct pick up spot (very close to the airport). Rep at end helped sort it all out at the end.Reviewed 12 Aug 2018
