Customer Service SketchyPros:Once I finally located the Budget rental car spot in the parking garage, the gentleman was very helpful, I got a very nice car, and the process was simple.Cons:When I arrived at the airport, the Budget rental car desk was unmanned, and there was no signage directing customers to another location. Had to use discovery learning to find the Budget kiosk in the parking garage. I returned the car at 6:20 am and the Budget kiosk wasnt open yet, even though the sign said it would be open at 5 am. When I signed for the rental car, I told them I would be returning it at 6 am. I was told no problem, someone would be there. There wasn't, and because I was expecting a Budget rep to be there, I didn't have a pen to fill out the rental folder with mileage, date or FULL tank. I had to drop the car keys and rental agreement into the box without filling anything out, and HOPE that they charge me correctly. That's not how I prefer to do business.Reviewed 11 Dec. 2018

Weird weird budget sitePros:They gave us a free upgrade because the smart cars transmission was so bad it continually lulled and would kill us on the highway.Cons:They asked questions I've never been asked when renting a car. They needed to know my destination and demanded my work telephone. We got budget specifically because I knew their other driver policy. Spouses are free. He went with me to get the car and we officially listed him as a second driver. When he returned the car full of gas in perfect shape the people at the desk said we were banned because he wasn't allowed to drive the car. Truly avoid this budget location. It's not predictable and not well run. This is a locally run budget rental. Don't judge them all by this one.Reviewed 24 May 2017

Cons:It was not clear to me that there was an offsite Budget, who I actually rented from, and a onsite at the airport Budget. The man in charge was very helpful to honor what I had and made clear that it would be $5 more per day. Which was fine.Reviewed 12 Sep. 2019

Heavily decontented van for luxury car moneyPros:They vacuumed it out.Cons:I did not know you could de-option a van that far in today’s world. Also, why would a van that costs far less than most mid-sized cars cost more than 2x as much to rent than that mid-sized car‽ ya, not doing THAT again.Reviewed 2 Jan. 2018

Pick-Up was finePros:The car was fine, had significant exterior damage but served the purpose we needed of getting from one town to another.Cons:The desk inside the airport was closed so we had to go to the outside kiosk in the winter. We were not notified of the damage prior to finding the car.Reviewed 6 Jan. 2018

BackstabbingCons:I filled the tank and was still charged by Budget for a full tank of gas. Is this the way they make money off people that travel? Charge them for filling the tank when it is full when they know they are already gone.Reviewed 31 Dec. 2015
