Pros:Easy and quick service for pick up and drop off. Also, very good condition of the car. I drove 1420 miles without any issue at all.Reviewed 9 Apr 2018

Pros:Considering the conditions of COVID, the young lady was very helpful and checked me in quickly and when I returned the car the same girl waited on me again and made my car return and easy transitionCons:The location in the mall is horrible, bad parking and hard to find. I drove around the mall twice before I was able to find the location of Budget. Also when I got in the car, it was clean, however the car had a strong marijuana odor. I did report this to the clerk at the counter, she made note of it. But because of the timing and the lack of cars available I went ahead and took the car anyhow. But it was unpleasant to drive a car with that odor when you are a non user and a non smoker.Reviewed 29 Dec 2020

Rental carPros:We loved the Charger. Quick, speedy, fun to drive and nice to ride in. Staff was friendly in person, not quite as accommodating on their national line to call in when we were having trouble. Rental and drop off were pretty simple.Cons:The charger wasn't cleaned very well when we got it and after a day of driving, the 'check engine' light came on. I called to see what we could do and we were going to have to trade it for something else. Before we could trade it in, it didn't want to start a couple of times so we knew we had to. Not what you want on a trip! We went to trade it at an airport lot (thinking they'd have a better selection) and they didn't have any other cars in that category so we traded to a different one. That check engine light came on once we started the vehicle so I had to go back again and was assured that it was just because it had just had an oil change. Hmmm. Still no car like we wanted to rent, but we had no choice. This second car was a 2017 4runner. You'd think it would be a nice car, but was VERY basic. Not even a FOB to lock the doors or alarm the car. I know, first world problems and all, but I assumed that an SUV rental would have at the very least this. Definitely a step down from the initial car we had rented. Forgot to fill the cars up with gas when we returned them so we really got screwed there! Overall experience=Disappointed for sure. Probably will use another rental company next time.Reviewed 6 Nov 2017

Pros:Cancellation of rental was very easy and simple. The customer service representative was very nice and helpful and apologized for the situation.Cons:We scheduled our rental pick-up for 7pm. We didn’t know that the pick-up location closed at 7pm. We were unable to receive our rental. If closing time is at 7pm, then the last rental for the evening needs to be at 6:30pm.Reviewed 15 May 2021

Pros:Yes! The car was a Toyota Corollaan excellent vehicle, exceptionally clean, comfortable and great mileageCons:I picked up the car early and for three hours extra I was charged an extra day. If I had known I would have taken my ride to lunch and saved $50.Reviewed 5 Jun 2021

Pros:NothingCons:The car was reserved two weeks in advance. At 7PM the night before pick-up was scheduled I got a call from a budget representative telling me the car (no cars actually) was not available. Budget would make no effort to look for a car at a different location. Budget could not (or would not) provide telephone numbers for other locations or other rental companies. When I asked why Budget had waited until the evening before I was to pick up the car to tell me there was no car the rep simply stated that "your name was on a list I was given". Nothing more Really shoddyReviewed 22 Jun 2021

Not impressedCons:The check in process was awful and took 45 minutes. The mans clmpjter was down so he spent 15 mins trying to reboot, then had to do everything manually. Then the only behicle he has was a pickup truck when I needed an economy vehicle. The truck was dented and had stains/crumbs all over the inside.Reviewed 9 Dec 2018

Pros:The car performed well, was problem free, and was comfortable. We did not get the vehicle requested, but the substitute vehicle was totally acceptable.Cons:We did not get the vehicle requested. In fact, we got nothing resembling it. The vehicle was dirty, inside and out. The attendant at the Budget desk was less than attentive or helpful.Reviewed 5 Sep 2017
