Charged more than reservation price.Cons:I picked up the car from Budget at Market Street and returned Airport. I saw the price on paper and did not accept it. The person told me not to worry about the number, the number would be the initial number. Then I received the receipt. But i saw the same amount in my credit card statement as in the receipt I objected. I disputed this amount and waiting now. One of my prior rental with Avis told me there is no charge if I return to airport. And Budget person told me so but the charge is more than they promised. I booked $195.92, Budget charged me $256.93.Reviewed 21 Mar 2018

Pros:Great car for a full size although the engine was lacking in power.Cons:When arriving from the terminal there were 10 people waiting in line and only two people there to process the rentals. One renter had a problem so everyone had to wait entirely too long. At return, there were cars everywhere and it wasn't clear where to drop the car. Finally someone came over to help but it was very confusing. Change engine oil light was on.Reviewed 30 Aug 2016

Outrageously slow pickup processPros:Car was fineCons:Waited for the shuttle for 20 minutes at PHL airport while sleeting, it never showed up (other rental car shuttles passed every 2 minutes) Hiked to the rental location with luggage. 20 people in line, staff moving in slow motion, disappearing for 10 minutes at a time, no sense of urgency, shooting the bull with customers to extend the process instead of hustling. It took over an hour to pick up the car.Reviewed 19 Nov 2018

Pros:Drop-off was easy (though somewhat disorganized and short staffed looking).Cons:The car smelled terribly of dead fish and cigarette smoke. The car performed very poorly, as if it needed a tune up.Reviewed 30 Jul 2019

Pros:Car was fine.Cons:Service picking up at PHL was absolutely terrible. Worst customer service experience of my life. Waited nearly an hour to pick up the car despite plenty of staff walking around. Agent who helped me was chewing while speaking and didn’t even go over the rental agreement. Will never use Budget again.Reviewed 17 Jun 2019

Pros:check in was fastCons:The car was extremely dirty. Had to go to the car wash so I could see out the back window. Gas tank was supposed to be full, it was not. No one available for the return. Just left the car and got on the shuttle. I hope the bill is correct.Reviewed 29 Dec 2019

Drop off location closed and gated so no one could drop off a carCons:No one called to tell us that it would be impossible to drop off the car at the location so I had to change my hotel location so I could drop the car off very early in front of my flight - 30 miles away! Ridiculous that the drop off location did not tell me that the local road construction would make it impossible to deliver my car as expected. That is NOT service.Reviewed 29 Sep 2017

Cons:There was not a car available for me when I went to pick it up. I gave them my confirmation number, last name, etc. and they said that they did not have any cars, that budget will let you book cars even if there aren’t any available at that sight. This was obviously a huge inconvenience and I walked away without a car. Very very frustratingReviewed 23 Apr 2018

Don't expect a clean carPros:responsive front desk gave me a nice replacement car - still dirty on outside and not cleaned recently on the inside, but i liked the Ford Fusion hybrid with carplay.Cons:first car was dirty inside and out. They explained that they do not clean cars but offer a $5 credit if i take the time to go to a car wash.... NOT ACCEPTABLE nor explained in any contract. The staff did volunteer that they do expect the car interior to be clean. In this case, the car was dirty outside and inside. Ketchup on the back seat was still sticky, so it was probably not too old. Pretty clear that Budget staff never inspected the car.Reviewed 15 Jul 2017
