Cons: The rep in Rockford Il tried to hardsell double coverage collision coverage and even though we had purchased collision coverage/travel insurance through Allianz on the online aggregator we used. He had to redo the contract 2 times because of the excessive add ons that Budget attempted to add. Rep was very slow and tried to distract me with chatter.
Car was late and rep said that he tried to call us while we were en route to pick up to tell us the car was late. Although we were picking up the car in Rockford he called NJ.

Pros: new car and nice bluish color; easy to pick up car and drop off car (except NO drop off sign that says Budget-I had to park and walk in to ask where to park the car).
I'm not happy to spend $100 a day to rent car but it was the cheapest price available so happy about that.
Cons: ALL DIRTY WINDOWS, inside perfume smell was annoying, drop off guy had lack of communication and charged wrong credit card becuz he didn't ask me-he assumed I wanted same card charged. I expected he would ask for my charge card and my signature. He credited my account and took a different card but I did not want a charge and a credit on that card. Then the words he used seemed he was blaming ME. He was Not very apologetic at all. Plus he was RUDE to the people behind us when we left the counter.

What is the point of a reservation?
Cons: I made reservations weeks in advance. Was called an hour before I was to pick up the car and was told there wasn't one available.
Pros: I had to wait in line for awhile to get my rental car. I really did not think my wait was unacceptable as I could see the service rep was just very busy helping others ahead of me in line. Anyway, she gave me an upgrade in my vehicle due to the time I had to wait. Very considerate, will make me choose Alamo again in the future.

There is no after hours pick up like the website suggests.
Cons: Counter closes at 2pm on Weekends. There is no way for after hours pick up to happen.
