I was expecting a Ford Edge, recieved a Ford Explorer. While upgrades are nice, the difference in gas milage was significant. We drove from St Louis to Yellowstone National Park and back. Also the car was not ready at our scheduled time so we had to wait for the car to be cleaned, about 20 min. While not Budgets fault, I did not like the dail shift control or the information screen in the explorer. The drop-off was quick easy and hassle free, but we were not given a receipt. As an experienced traveler, I knew that the receipt would be e-mailed to me, but my wife was upset that I could not tell her how much the car rental had cost at drop off.Reviewed 27 May 2024

Worked with a young lady named Heaven out of St Louis airport Budget rental. They had problems getting the transaction to go through so offered an upgrade. Only there 15min or so and left with a very nice vehicle. Always good when a company looks to make customers happy.Reviewed 7 Apr 2024

The price was very unreasonable. The website price vs at the counter upgrade price was 3x of the original price. Unacceptable. The customer service was great. The counter agent, Heaven, did provide us exceptional customer service and very helpful.Reviewed 26 Mar 2024

Better checking in procedures as passengers come in. They should be giving a number of something, said that they don't cut lines and people have to stand in line for hours waiting to check out, and the buddies come around holding the spots and checking in causing hazards. And someone is gonna get hurt. Especially located in saint, Louis Missouri. All the violence is that that that was a very bad experience I had. With budget thank youReviewed 27 Feb 2024
