nice work, BudgetPros:friendly staff, nice car, easy after-hours drop-offReviewed 26 Aug 2016

Good experience. Will come back.Pros:The frequent pick up van from the terminal to the pick up car location. The van driver was very helpful with our luggage. The process was very smooth. If not because of my credit card international limit, I might have finished the process in 5 minutes. Will come back!Cons:Not can I think off, but if there's any, there would be the officer who's in charge for pick up to explain in full clarity about extra charges, especially related to the insurance.Reviewed 29 May 2017

Great ServicePros:Very impressed with the process to collect (a little less slick dropping off). Everyone I spoke to was very polite, couldn't fault the staff, vehicle or the overall experience.Cons:Drop off process was not as easy as pickup, wasn't clear where to return the car and I was given conflicting information about who would see me and where I needed to park.Reviewed 1 Aug 2017

Pros:The car was fine and what I ordered and it was clean. Return was also quick. The shuttle to and from the airport was also quick and friendly.Cons:We got a GPS but the SD card had been stolen from the car so I went back in to get a new SD card and they didn't have any. The only way I could then get a gps was to upgrade to another vehicle, and the closest upgrade was 40% more of a daily rate than I was currently quoted to pay. So we opted out of the gps, in a foreign country... fun. Also the clerk did not give us good directions out of the area, and told us there would be a gas station on the way back in to return it and THERE WAS NOT so I had to end up paying their gas fee for not returning it full as I received it.Reviewed 13 Mar 2017

Excellent rate and no issues with carPros:Cost of the car was very good. Return was a breeze. Good sized car for the narrow roads we used. Traveled from London to Scotland to Belfast down west coast of Ireland to Dublin. Over to UK a couple stops and back to London. Great trip with car.Cons:I requested a Continental pass when renting. The agent and I both forgot and left without it. I called Budget and was told to go to Budger N. Ireland and get ont to continue on into The Irish Rep. The N. Ireland Budget systems do not talk with the LHR Budget systems. They talked on the phone but concluded that I could not get this in Belfast. I continued without it with no one asking for it. Upon returning nothing was said so I saved that cost.Reviewed 7 Aug 2017

No issues, good car but no windshield washer fluid.Pros:The lady at the front desk was very kind and delivered the car in the time I expected it would take. The instructions were very clear to drive the car out of the lot and to drop it back off again. The car felt like new, and was in good conditions.Cons:I was asked for 2 credit cards, which I wasn't informed beforehand, also, nowhere was I informed that I was supposed to take my passport with me to pick the car up. Finally, the car had no windshield washer fluid.Reviewed 25 Feb 2018

Pick up was awfulPros:Budget upgraded us (several levels?) because of the inconvenience at pickup, even though we didn't request it. The representative was helpful, kind and cheerful.Cons:Pick up at the airport was awful in at least 4 ways. We chose Budget because they advertised pick up at the terminal and we wanted a quick, smooth get away. Instead it was a (1) shuttle ride to a (2) very long line in a (3) terribly hot waiting area and a (4) wait for a car to be returned and cleaned so we could start our holiday.Reviewed 27 Sep 2016

Pros:Location was good for pickup and dropoffCons:The car had built in GPS with touch screen but the budget car rental rep gladly sold me GPS charging for it. They gave me a toddler seat for my 9 month baby and had nothing else.Reviewed 22 Oct 2019
