Pros: Great staff.
Cons: fee transparency
Cons: Pickup and drop offf experience was terrible. Constant attempts to overcharge for the rental from saying the website didn’t calculate the right taxes to be changed a fueling surcharge at drop off even though I fueled the vehicle before return. Attendant didn’t look at the fuel gauge and questioned me about where I fueled but did refund the surcharge when requested. At pickup the Budget counter wasn’t even open (went through Avis) and the agent had to manually enter rental info because I wouldn’t accept paying $50 dollars more for the rental due to what the agent said was a website miscalculation of taxes. Vehicle was clean, comfortable, and ran trouble free.
Pros: car was fine. drop-off was quick and easy
Cons: the price we were charged at pickup was different/higher than the amount in our confirmation email from carrentals.com. i have been in contact with them and they've started an "investigation".
Cons: Car outside was pretty dirty
Pros: Our van was brand new - it was awesome! We had a quick, easy check in process and were on our way quickly. Same thing with the drop off. It was easy and the employees were very courteous.
Cons: It was hard to find the rental car area at the Burbank Airport but we found it eventually.
Pros: The vehicle, a Mazda CW5, was amazing and a great value. The Budget employees were extremely helpful.
Cons: I did not receive a confirmation that the vehicle was returned when I brought it back.
Pros: Yes and yes
Cons: Even cheaper prices? Since you asked :) Absolutely no complaints in anything.
Pros: Drop-off was easy and the car was functional.
Cons: Neither the car’s interior or exterior had been cleaned. There was trash in the cup holders and the interior surfaces clearly hadn’t even been wiped down. The exterior hadn’t been washed. The car was missing all four tire nozzle caps.
Pros: Staff was friendly. Rental was easy to pick up and drop off. Vehicle was spotless. I appreciated the estimated price was more than my actual amount upon returning the vehicle. I will definitely rent from budget again.
Pros: Great staff in Seattle
Cons: Dropping off at Bellingham Airport was frustrating and strange. No one told me there would be no one there to drop the car off to. I arrived at the airport and followed the signs to rental car return which led past a parking lot poorly marked and with no attendant. No signs told me what to do with the car. No signs at the airport indicated a car rental office of any kind. Call local Budget office, no answer. Called national Budget office. They could not find any record I had rented a car from them even though I drove it from Seattle to Bellingham, and I gave them all my numbers from the rental contract. After more than ten minutes with the national office they finally found some instructions for me to drop off the key and contract at the Budget booth by baggage claim. Went to where the first sign for baggage claim was and all the doors were locked. Walked further along and found a second sign for baggage claim, found the Budget booth. No one there, sign said go to Avis. Went to Avis booth. No one there. Sign on box said write down mileage date time and space number where I parked the car. Returned to parking lot to get mileage and space number. Walked back to Avis booth hidden in baggage claim, dropped off the keys and contract in box. To top it off some people had put their contracts in the key slot instead of the contract slot so the key slot was so full of contracts I had to jam the keys in several times to get them to go down the slot. A little forewarning and or better signage would have been nice.
Cons: Crappy car for the price
