Cons:I had a $10/daily - 12noon arrival and an 8pm drop-off requested and quoted. When we arrived at noon the young lady at the counter was more concerned about where she and her coworkers were going to get lunch than helping us get our car. Apparently they didn't want chipotle again. She tossed paperwork at us and told us to head downstairs. the poor guy distributing keys had a line out the door and was clearly overwhelmed. Now I have double the bill charged to my card because I kept the vehicle too long. My flight left early but I kept the vehicle too long. I won't rent from budget againReviewed 8 Apr 2017

Pros:The staff were organized, prompt and friendly. The Budget office at SNA was closed and housed temporarily in the Avis office, so there was some confusion and extra time involved. However, all-in-all a good experience.Cons:Sort out the office location.Reviewed 22 Aug 2020

Booked for intermediate but got a compact car. HalPros:The car I got was okay. Returning the car was very fastCons:First, I booked a intermediate car on Kayak, but when I saw the car, it's a subcompact car(Nissan Versa Note). Second, when I booked online, I didn't got informed that I would be charged an under age (25) fee which is radiciously high. $36 for the car, and $27 for the underage fee/day!! Third, when I got the car and about to leave, I noticed the car only had half tank gas. The worse thing was that I was not informed about the half tank gas when I checked in with the Budget guys neither! Does that meansI would have to pay for the extra half tank gas if I didn't notice at the first time? I would never rent any car from this car rental company any more!Reviewed 2 Jan 2017

Cons:1.5 hr wait to get the car, they had closed the counter in the airport, and only opened the one in the garage, it was 90 degrees out side and everyone was standing there. Their explanation was that we are cheaper than other rentals, so a long line is justified! They were actually not much different than others when I booked! Just bad luck! The car was just cheap and subpar for the class... Returned the car an hour earlier, they charged me $10 late fee...went to counter and they said "oh, sorry"! And they took it off...another 30min of my time. Never again renting from budget at SNA...You get what you paid for!Reviewed 11 Jul 2017

Pros:The staff was very helpful and made sure we left with a car even when we were presented with obstacles they were quick on their feet with solutions to help us.Cons:I was unsure were to leave the keys because we dropped it off before they were open so maybe a clear spot to leave the keys although I left them on the wall where they hung the keys.Reviewed 31 Mar 2021

Cons:The car I rented had quite a few scratches and there was a cigarette burn in the seat. Turning on the air conditioning in 95° heat revealed someone had smoked in the car and being an ex-smoker I'm a pansy these days as it drives me nuts. But being a Toyota Camry it ran great and got terrific fuel economy with no other issuesReviewed 15 Jun 2021

Cons:When it takes 2 hours for Budget to get a car for you at twice the normal rate. Ya, that could of been better.Reviewed 23 May 2021
