The guy that helped me: Bastian, he told me that the car was not available because I was 3 hours late (we had a flight delay and strong headwinds) He wanted to switch me to a SUV for more than 40 dollars extra per day. I didn’t want that and after 1,5 hours discussing finally some other budget company brought in a pickup Truck. Wich i had rented. Note: because we were 3 hours late the available pickup trucks were at the garage for an oil-change… we couldn’t believe that. When we brought the car back we tanked it ourselves. The closest gasstation was about 7 minutes away. I drove 350 km. And filled the truck for about 60 dollars. After we returned the car, the fuel-gage was just below full. The same guy: Bastian, wanted to charge us 39 dollars for that. We had a whole discussion about that. Furthermore, the left backtire looked like it had been relaired somewhere earlier but it didn’t look good because it had iron threads sticking out of the tire. We only drove from the airport to our destination and to grocery stores and back… We didn’t trust the vehicle at all. Never again will we rent at Budget again. Horrible experience!Reviewed 5 Jan. 2024

Budget company rented me a car with some kind of problem with the on-board computer and this caused me a lot of discomfort during the trip. I even returned the car ahead of schedule. I've been contacting them via email to check the difference in the price charged and they haven't responded.Reviewed 8 Dec. 2023

I do not understand the logic behind a car rental agency that is one hr from the Rockie mtns not listing only winter tire vehicles. To leave it as an upgrade and significant cost at the counter is outrageous. It may not be law to have winter tires on the vehicles being rentable, but highlight that fact on your booking site. It is misleading and not a fair price comparison. And, the amount of surcharges etc are obscene and should be disclosed on your final booking ONLINE, again NOT at the ticket counter when everyone is in a frenzy to get on the road to their destination. As well, there was no walk thru of the vehicle features like windshield wipers, lights, gas tank etc. At initial use of my wiper blades the wipers did not actually touch the glass and was left w a blob of frozen windshield fluid which I had to pullover and scrape off. Eventually the wipers must have warmed up and we’re operational. I was very dissatisfied w my experience and shocked at the outrageous cist of my online quote if $358 to walking away w a key for $958!!? Pls investigate this further, I’d be happy to share my documents!!!!!!!!Reviewed 14 Mar. 2023
