Reserved a car that wasn't there!Made a reservation, got there and they had no cars! Idk what the point of the reservation is if they aren't going to honor it when you get there? They lease out cars when they don't have enough. I don't understand how a computer can't keep track of inventory like that? Get it together enterprise! Also they are still trying to bill me for the insurance because that's three a 3rd party, leaving me to work that out myself.

NoisyClean vehicle, pleasant and efficient staff. Easy after hourd drop.Extremely noisy on the highway - maybe the tires or the drive train? Loud enough that it was difficult to hear phone conversation. It drove fine and got reasonable mileage. I had a five hour drive reach way and ended up with a headache both times. Also, there was no ice scraper.

Maintenance RequiredMaintenance Required Message came on. Dropped the car off. Only call received was to tell me I'd only be billed for time I had the car. No apology, no offer of getting me a replacement.

Car wasn't fully cleaned when we arrived, full of scratches, a few dents. She gave us 10% off for that. Had to clean the windows before we left. Two hours into our trip on the turnpike, the front shield beneath the front bumper fell down! Took almost 20 hours, numerous phone calls and me finally screaming on the phone to get help.

Only one rental car person on site and line was long to rent car. The car I received had not been washed or cleaned on the inside before receiving it.

Prices could have been a bit lower. Why is it I can rent a car for $30-40 a day but when I need something for my family of 6 it now is 3 times the price? Just saying.

Car wasn't availableNothingGot a phone call one hour before pickup to let me know that no cars were available for me. The lady was not polite and didn't even offer to check other locations. Went with Enterprise instead, and it was seamless with friendly service, and I was given an awesome upgrade! I now see why my workplace will not allow us to rent from Budget.

Car hire excess insurance in Reading

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Reading car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Reading.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Reading car rental.
