The Budget online system directed us to a location that had zero cars. We had to go with all of our luggage to second location. Our order confirmed by credit card was for a convertible Mustang or similar. The second location doesn't have any convertible cars at all. Because of Budget we wasted 3 hours. They offered us only one uncomfortable car, which was not even washed. I expect a refund. I paid for something completely different, plus Budget caused a long delay in my journey, which impacted the day.Reviewed 29 Sep 2022

The front office was unorganized and unprofessional. Car wasn’t ready until three hours after the pick up time.Reviewed 3 Sep 2022

Car was clean and ran well. Slight pick up issue but not budgets problem as renters were slow to bring cars back. Don't call corporate as they are not updated on current local office hours.Reviewed 24 Aug 2022

The car smelled and they didn't have the SUV we ordered so we were in a smaller vehicle.Reviewed 4 Aug 2022

Reserved the car for noon. When I showed up, there were no cars available. Had to wait until 2pm for a car. This caused a significant delay in our plans for the day as we were going to visit two different tourist attractions outside of Nola. With the delay we were set back and couldn't do the things we had planned. Had to re-route our trip on the fly.Reviewed 25 Jul 2022

Wow! During our three week rental, we realized that the registration for our vehicle (at least the paperwork Budget provided in the glove box) EXPIRED IN APRIL 2022! Imagine getting pulled over in Mississippi, Louisiana, or Tennessee with expired tags in 2022. The attendant who checked our car on return was stunned; the agent who checked us out didn't even apologize.Reviewed 4 Jul 2022

Over an hour wait to pick up car, every other company people would come and go quickly except Budget. If you can’t provide efficient service at the time we rent a car then why allow so many reservations? Pure greed I guess and no care for customer satisfaction.Reviewed 25 May 2022

Cashing out was absolutely ridiculous. They are using ancient card readers and if your card doesn’t swipe right the first time, you’re out of luck because they aren’t allowed to try swiping it again! It is also not an accessible building, no ramps to the doorReviewed 25 May 2022

The car had several lights on the dash, and they knew and still gave it to us. When driving, the alignment was terrible an borderline unsafe on the highway. They were unorganized and frazzled. Someone else immediately returned their car, after driving off, b/c their car was making a loud sound.Reviewed 17 Mar 2022
