Good enough.
Pros: The staff was great and made it clear what I needed to rent the car.
Cons: There estimate I received online was so wrong. I ended up paying nearly $200 more than kayak said it would cost. This came as a huge surprise but it was too late to turn back.

Never again!!!
Pros: Nothing
Cons: 1: almost two hours to get the vehicle 2: smallest car on stock with manual everything! I had to roll down the windows myself and the steering wheel was extremely hard. Felt like a work out! 3: gave me a vehicle with a restricted licence plate on that day, which gave me less than hour to get home. I did not make it. 4: upon return they called me over five times to see where I was and then suggested that I return the car elsewhere. 5. I will not be renting with budget bogota ever again.

Terrible Customer Service
Cons: The customer service provided by Budget at the airport was awful. We called to pick up the car early and were told that there was no issue. When we arrived they seemed surprised we were early and began to tell us we did not have a car. They found a car for us but after they charged my credit card for the rental they again said there was no car available. We ultimately had to complain with the person's boss on the phone for them to find a car. They also have terrible information security. The person at the desk took 3 copies of my full credit card information which could easily be stolen. When asked his only excuse was that their computers were not working that day but could not explain how they would keep my information safe.

Horrible ... again
Pros: Nothing.

They try to rip you off all the time
Pros: Price
Cons: The guy said the reservation didn't appear on screen and tried to charge 3 time the price for a new reservation. When I escalated to the supervisor the reservation appeared magically. He also lied about the insurance coverages.

Budget did not have the Car I reserved.
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I reserved a Car in Class B, 4 Doors, 5 passengers and space for 2 large suitcases. They only could offer me a Kia Picanto or Hyundai i10. Since I’m travelling with 4 I had to cancel. switched to Avis.

Terrible pickup experience at El Dorado Airport in Bogota
Pros: The guy at the counter did call his boss and they both helped me get a car right away. He provided great customer service.
Cons: I did not like that the counter in Bogota had no clue I was going to pick up a car that day. The experience was awful.

No car
Pros: N.A. I did not receive the car.
Cons: When I called Avis to receive the vehicle on Saturday morning, they didn't have it! The rental never occurred. The phone number posted for the Avis location where the vehicle was supposed to be - per the official website - was disconnected. I called a different Avis location, they provided me the cell phone number of someone working at the location, and this person who answered the phone was extremely rude and even used profanity when I asked where the car was. "Ciao, pendejo," he said as he hung up. I am considering filing an official complaint with Avis. I highly recommend that Kayak consider reevaluating their contract with this agency. No reasonable person would give Kayak money for this.

Customer service was bad.
Cons: The staff at the north office of Bogota did not attend to help me on my request to change the vehicle the last day of rental, so I could run my business errands due to a city's prohibition of car used at peak hours (from 3PM to 7:30 PM), so some days unpaired or pair tag id numbers can not circulate at certain hours of these days. I had requested to change the car this day and the response was negative and not helpful at all.

Pros: Nothings
Cons: They gave away our car as we were an hour late to pick it up from the airport after unavoidable delay. Absolutely unacceptable... makes both Avis and Kayak look bad. We had to figure alternatives out ourselves and ended up booking with Hertz.

Insurance scam

Cons: Do you insuurance purchase from Alliance was not accepted at the Avis in Colombia. They said they don't honor those third party insurances and forced me to pay for their insurance.

Extortion
Cons: They tried to extort an extra $70 for cleaning the interior and exterior of the vehicle. The interior was dirty when I began the rental (coffee or some brown drink spilled on the cup holder, dirt in the interior). I returned it in the same condition. The exterior was clean and it was a little dirty when I returned it (it rained all week). They told me I would be charged a $70 dollar cleaning fee. I've never experienced anything like this when renting a car from other companies. I don't know if this is an AVIS policy or whether the Bogota airport location is just shady. Either way, I'm not renting from AVIS again.

Top tips for renting a car in Bogotá

  • To get to some of the more charming cities around Bogota, you’ll need a hire car. Drive to El Infernito (known as Little Hell) or spend the day touring Chingaza National Natural Park (an ideal place for nature lovers). On your drive, you will have many opportunities to take pictures of the mountains and catch a glimpse of different wildlife.
  • When visiting Bogota, you’ll fly into the El Dorado International Airport. Recognized as one of the busiest airports in the country, it is truly efficient and provides many amenities for travelers, including an area for hire car companies right inside the terminal. You’ll only need to walk a short distance to the lot to pick up or return your hire car.
  • There are numerous toll roads throughout Bogota and all of Colombia. Because their tolls are not generally automated, you’ll need to have cash and coins handy. Be sure to keep the money out of sight, however, so as not to tempt thieves.
  • Bogota is said to be one of the most congested cities in terms of traffic. However, this applies mostly to the business districts and the center of town. If you want to avoid traffic jams altogether, it would be best to stay off of roads during rush hour. This is between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., and 3 p.m. until as late as 6:30 p.m.
  • Book your rental car in Bogotá at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
