Odd vendorCar was usual Budget quality and cleanliness thanksVendor suggested that had we arrived one minute after 4, we would not have been able to pick up the rental and yet made no effort to call the contact number to advise that the 4M pickup was the very latest possible. Also seemed to have trouble verifying the license and commented that I might need my passport. Having rented from Budget many times with the same license, I was surprised.

OverchargedThe agent didn't tell me I would be charged for mileage on top of my normal charge. Very unusual & I won't rent from budget again unless the charges are reversed.
7.6 Good20 Feb 2016
Friendly staff, decent carWe did not realize that insurance was not covered in the original price listed, so we had to make a last minute decision to include insurance and this doubled the cost. It was stressful to have to make that decision on short notice and the price was much higher than we would have even considered going in.

Wasn't open at scheduled time of drop off. Had to leave car out front of return location. Waited on hold for a total of close to 3 hours to be hung up on..also instructed to call road side assistance to help. They did not answer either. If this is sue to holiday weekend. Then dont schedule business and rental returns..

The two women who worked in this area were horrible, especially the one with the accent. On the other hand, the gentleman who worked in this area was better to deal with. I thought that I was always greeted with boredom and disinterest. These people really need to be trained on basic common courtesy and professional couttesy!I did not like going to this place of business because of the true lack of professional courtesy. I felt like I was a burden to them just trying to get my car that was already on reservation. I have recently rented a car from Avis/Budget and the gentleman at the desk was fantastic. He was extremely friendly and worked with me over the price quoted to me on the general phone line. This person made you feel appreciated that you were renting a car from him. No one at Hertz ever made me feel this way or work with me. Maybe the Hertz employees needs to be trained by this gentleman at Avis!!!!

Guy was rude, the car promised was not what was being offered to me. When I asked for another vehicle he gave attitude. Car was dirty and had an odor. They did not offer a replacement. Guy was on a personal call during transaction. Had rude comments made during drop off.

My car reeked of cigarette smoke. There were no other cars available at that first location so I drove an hour with the windows open to another location to get another car.One of the agents made a mistake on my contract and closed it out in the middle of my rental. So when I tried to return the car, it took about 30 minutes as the agent couldn't find me in the computer. He ended up renting the car to me again and then closing it out. Was not a smooth transaction.

Credit card?It was cheap.Very hard to book, online set up is confusing. I was willing to pay 30 extra for being under 25 years of age but then was told I wouldn’t be able to pick up the car unless I had a credit card under my name even though I paid with my debit card and they still took out the money and I haven’t gotten my refund. I do not own a credit card and it was very confusing to have to call different numbers to ask for my 60 bucks back. Waist of time. Would never use again.

This location was closed when I went to pick up my rental. There hours are listed till 7pm and they were gone at 6. Had to rent a vehicle from another company.

Drop off was easyI wish Enterprise offices would stay open longer on Saturdays
6.0 Good12 Aug 2020
Easy pick up and drop offI informed Enterprise about the car having a colony of ants that made their way inside the vehicle the entire three hour drive to our destination and I was told that it happens if the car is sitting out for long or not being rented.. They said it’s happened before so I question why this would happen again.. If this wasn’t the first time, they should have thoroughly inspected the car before renting it. Also, I mentioned that my friend had a minor allergy to cat fur because every time she got in the car, she would start sneezing and her eyes reddened. Thankfully she was mildly allergic so we were able to get some allergy medicine but it just made me question their overall inspection and cleaning process with their vehicles. The car itself kept glitching on us and kept showing an error message about a sd card being removed. We tried calling them about it but the automated message would say they were closed when their website said they were open. It was bothering to be asked what we wanted from them to make up for the inconveniences... We only wanted a car that wasn’t infested by ants and was thoroughly cleaned and inspected before renting out to people.

The agent was friendly but had to wait a long timeThe two gentlemen working were doing their best and were friendly and trying to be proactive. I overheard them calling future reservations to let them know it would be a wait as they were short cars. I would have appreciated that call.I had to wait quite a while 45 min to get my car. I also had my baby with me. I rented a car seat as well which they didn't end up having on site and had to get it from another location- so another wait.

1.9 Horrible30 Aug 2021
The guy at Oxnard double charged for insurance- I told him I thought I bought it when I made my reservation, he said he couldn’t see it, so I purchased. Come to find out Avis can’t see the insurance I purchase from Kayak- I want a credit back from one of you. Then he dud t tell me there was a $250 deposit. It put me over my limit on my CC and I received a charge. Lastly, no window washer fluid, I drove up the coast and back it was not good.
1.9 Horrible5 Aug 2021
Went to Oxnard Airport to pick up my rental and was told that I was not able to because it was a Luxury Vehicle and you had to be 25+ to rent. This was minutes before I was to get on the road for a trip that I booked. I asked Carlos to cancel my rental and he said he would do so. I also asked if I would get charged for the rental, to which he mentioned I would not. However, I was still charged a $50 “no show” fee even though it was not my fault that I was not able to get the rental by company guidelines, despite showing up to pick it up at my scheduled time.

After not having a clear designated box to drop off the keys, when I called Avis, I had a pretty arrogant customer representative that after explaining the situation of the drop off threatened me that I will pay for the rental till the car was found - altho car was delivered in time to drop off location.

The problem is that Kayak gave me one price for an intermediate car and when we showed up at the counter the classic "bait and switch" was thrown at us. No intermediate cars were available and we were forced to rent a midsize at a higher price point. I am very disappointed at this. Either Kayak is not to be trusted or Dollar. Which one is it?

Car was old. Lots of dents and scratches. Car was not clean. Confirmed reservation was at 8am. Counter opened at 9:45am. Reserved for midsize but got a regular (Sentra) and was told it was an upgrade from a Versa.

Store manager is dishonestNothingDuring pickup the manager tried the old lines that give rental car companies a bad reputation. "We don't have that car in stock, but we have an upgrade available (Bait-and-switch method). Because it was booked less than 24 hours we can't guarantee a car is in stock, it's in fine print. (Liar, I read fine print, it's not there. That's Dollar's responsibility, not mine). If you don't want it than you can just cancel." It was late in the day and my Uber ride had already left, so I had no choice other than accept. Then the "upgraded" came out dirty and damaged. The car smelled like smoke and was covered in bugs.
