Pros:I never received a confirmation email and they charged me an extra $200 because THEY got my reservation wrong. I don’t know how to dispute this but it definitely sucks :/Cons:Customer service could’ve had more understanding, they could have tracked my reservation by name and not number (because I didn’t have a confirmation email they didn’t honor the correct reservation, only the incorrect reservation made over the phone by Jesse (agent on phone) and were so unkind on the phone I literally cried. Before the drop off location debacle, they didn’t even have my kind of car (economy) available at the location even though I booked beforehand so they charged me an extra $26/day to take the one car they did have available, but they said it was $25/day. And then the counter agent didn’t tell me the dropoff location was same as pickup. So when I reviewed my contract the next day and saw it was wrong, I had to call customer service, at which point they charged me a total of $345 for a reservation that was $48 when I walked in to get the car just 1 day before. It was a mess, I’m so stressed out from this, and not having a confirmation email REALLY contributed to that stress.Reviewed 8 Jun 2020

Cons:Broken ez-toll pass. Found that out 2 hours into my trip when I attempted to pay a toll. Budget told me to pay and kee my receipts. Well apparently you can't pay because the ez-pass was paying all the tolls. ]So even though I didn't open it it was still activated therefore I'm charged for the device everyday I had the rental. Calling my local budget and the 800 number was ABSOLUTELY no help at all. Second it rained...I pull off and water is running i to the car from the fron windshield. TOTALLY NOT WORTH $493.00 that I paid. However I had to get my daughter back to school t a certain time so I had to SUCK IT UP!!!Reviewed 25 Aug 2020

Pros:Drop off was easy.Cons:Pickup attendant seemed bothered we were there. The car had scuffs all down the side that were not disclosed before hand so we took pictures and went back inside and she just scribbled it down on a paper and handed it back to me. And the check engine light came on in the car.Reviewed 18 Nov 2020

Can't get out of their own wayPros:They stayed open late to accommodate flight delays. I landed at 1:10am and the driver picked me up shortly after I got out of baggage claim and I got the car relatively quickly.Cons:Weather was a huge problem during my trip (on both legs). My flight home got canceled and the only way to get home was to fly out of Providence instead of Hartford. I called budget to see what it would cost to drop the car off in Providence (~70mi) instead. They wanted to charge a $200 (maybe $250) drop fee. I told them that I could rent a new car for $94. Instead of making an exception they made me drive to Hartford (30mi out of the way) to return the car I had and pick-up a new one. When I got to the rental office the line was long and it took a long time. Once I finally got the the counter the woman told me that was stupid, closed out my old reservation and gave me a new one under the cheaper rate without making me change the car. It just added ~2hrs to my already shitty morning and long travel day.Reviewed 8 Apr 2017

Pros:Good price for car class.Cons:Tried to upsell on EVERYTHING when picking up car and got an attitude when insurance was declined. The insurance was a few dollars shy of the daily rental fee. Also "offered" Sirius radio for an additional fee, which I declined, however, it was already active in the vehicle. At return the invoiced amount was higher than the initial contract, so I had to go back inside and deal with getting that resolved.Reviewed 18 Apr 2017

Pros:Pick up and drop off ok.Cons:Car smelled old. Front end steering was off - like the power steering was “too powerful”. Made the car difficult to handle.Reviewed 29 Dec 2019
review fromkayak
Cons:When I got there, they said they were out of the size car I reserved. Then they tried to make me take a truck and I refused. I'm pretty sure they were trying to screw me over and this was for a potential job where the employer was paying. Will pick a different rental car company in the future.Reviewed 10 Dec 2016
review fromkayak
Pros:Original rental representative. who I believe was a manager was helpful. On return, the representative was willing to remove certain charges to reduce bill.Cons:There appeared to be added costs. For example, the cost of added/optional GPS at return was more than initially stated.Reviewed 22 May 2017

Pros:Quick check in... The car was full of features for the money... No hidden feesCons:The car that we received had a filthy exterior and the interior had only received a quick once over (there was still some trash inside that had been missed).Reviewed 8 Dec 2015
