Terrible Service at PickupCons:The employee at the pickup counter was rude and spent the entire time I was there working on his cell phone. He offered me an upgrade which I declined but he did anyway so when my total came up it was twice the amount I had reserved via Kayak. This was likely because he constantly worked on his cell phone the whole time I was talking to him and while he was using the Budget computer. He then had to redo the whole rental agreement. He then sent us to the wrong car and when we tried to leave we had to return the car and start over only to be directed to the wrong car again! I asked to speak to his manager and he refused to let me. I eventually had to go to the Avis counter, which is apparently comanaged with Budget in Austin, to get the correct car from another employee. No upgrade or discount was offered.Reviewed 3 Oct. 2016

You guys were awesome!Pros:My flight was very late - I did not arrive until 2AM, however, the Avis counter gladly and cheerfully processed my reservation. I was afraid i would have to sleep at the airport until 6am when the office opened, but you were there and I appreciate it immensely.Cons:I was not able to get through to Budget on the phone - I called 3 times. Also the car I had was not great: there was rubbing in the left front break area and I had no idea how to start the car (push button + apply break)Reviewed 26 Apr. 2016

Excellent Customer ServicePros:I found out at pickup that the rental KAYAK reserved for me was not for unlimited mileage. This may have been because I was a local renter and my trip would have cost me an extra $100 based on the mileage rate. The Budget customer representative noticed this and went out of his way to get me unlimited mileage at Budget's rate which was only $5 more. This was so much better than a previous experience with Advantage where I was forced to buy their rental insurance just because I was a local renter which added almost $300 to my bill.Cons:KAYAK did not specify that the reservation was not for unlimited mileage.Reviewed 26 Sep. 2017

Added cost scamPros:Original booking was great through kayak.Cons:Budget at check in said I did not have any insurance and I needed to buy their insurance at $36 and they did not tell me that was per day. I had bought insurance already and my credit card shows I was charged $9 a day so I needed up paying $150 for insurance for 3 days! Rip offReviewed 27 Jun. 2016

Cons:At drop off, they couldn't pull up the reservation on the system since it originated in San Antonio and the two Budgets are not on the same system. I was expected then to take the paperwork to the check in and have it closed out there. Unfortunately, there was a long line and I had a plane to catch, so I left it with the person at the counter, but wasn't able to get a receipt or anything. You should resolve this software issue.Reviewed 9 Apr. 2017
