The line to get the car was absolutely ridiculous. Lack of staff is unacceptable especially when you KNOW how many reservations you have.Reviewed 3 Jun 2024

Terrible experience. The Budget office location was moved and I was not notified. We had a 5 1/2 hour drive. We made a stop 30 + minutes into the drive. When we came out our car would not start. I called Budget for help and the first agent was not kind and helpful. The second agent tried to help but the solution offered had us waiting for an hour and a half for roadside assistance BEFORE being Ubered BACK to the original location to get a replacement car. I suggested that someone bring us a car instead. I was told it would be 5 HOURS until we would get a replacement. I was stranded with two children in another state without any viable options. Thankfully a Good Samaritan got the car started but suggested that we keep the car running until we got to the drop off location 5 hours away. We took turns at pit stops staying with the running car so we didn’t get stranded. Very uncomfortable situation having to let my children in the car alone or go into public bathrooms alone. We did not fill the tank before drop off for fear the car wouldn’t start. I’ll never go with Budget again.Reviewed 23 Nov 2023

The signs on the airport's internal roads directing to your facility were very poor. We got lost and made several circuits around the airport before finding you.Reviewed 27 Sept 2023

  • If I’m traveling into New York City for business, which car should I rent at Budget car rentals at Newark Airport?

    If you’re traveling into or planning on spending any time in the city, we recommend booking a small vehicle like a compact car or a mini. The street parking in New York City is notoriously scarce and the spots can be very small.

However, if you must book a large car due to the number of people in your party, be prepared to pay extra for parking or be confident in your parallel parking skills.
