Cons:Having rented many cars in the US, this was by far the slowest and overly complicated experience. It took over an hour and a half from arriving at the desk to finally receive car. They would only let the person who's name is on the reservation be the primary driver and pay for the car. Once I explained I made the reservation for my father who was standing with me with a valid driver's license and I would not be driving, they finally added him as a secondary driver for a $250 euro fee (which we got down to $125 and just accepted because we just wanted to get out of there). She kept taking the time to upsell us and not tell us the price impact until asked. Overall, it was just an extremely painful and slow process to just receive a car I had reserved weeks prior. I will not be returning or recommending Budget for future car rental needs in Catania.Reviewed 18 Sep. 2016

Budget took advantage of me, LOTS OF HIDDEN FEES!!Pros:The car was clean, and new.Cons:Very poor communication, as to a few users on here, i signed up thinking i was going to pay $200 for a week with a car and insurance from Allianz, but that was sadly not the case. Once i arrived, i was greeted with $300 of additional fees, Including VAT, city tax (which the rental said was already paid for when i checked out), and also a destination fee given i was not returning at the same spot, ($65). None of this was mentioned when i booked the car! To top it off, they had the nerve to give me a car with 3/4 of a tank (marked full) and have you agree to the policy of $65 to fill up the tank at the end of the rental if it is not exactly full. Ridiculous. Then Avis recommended we purchase an additional $40/day of insurance to ensure our deductible ($1000) is not put into jeopardy if we get into an accident. Just insane. SO in summary, i got a car with 3/4 tank of gas (marked full). Was supposed to pay $200 with insurance taxes fees for 5 days, ended up paying $600+. STAY AWAY!! SCAM!!Reviewed 2 Oct. 2016

Waiting and extra chargesPros:Car was okCons:Arrival - desk is not signposted and difficult to find. Then waiting 45 minutes in heat to be served dispite pre-booking. Then clerk was pushing trying to sell extra insurance. Return- no petrol station near hire place so ended up paying/being charged for re-fill. Also, charged extra taxes and charges despite quote including these.Reviewed 10 Jul. 2017

Cons:The chaos of Catania airport. There were a gazillion people there. The price was substantially more than I had expected to pay and the car was much larger as well (a real van!) which made driving in some areas a bit stressful.Reviewed 9 Apr. 2018

Pros:The car was great, impeccably clean and very new. The staff extremely helpful and friendly, with great knowledge of Sicily. They gave us great recommendations on places to visit! We extended our rental for another day, over the telephone, very easily. Good english spoken. Overall, highly recommended!Reviewed 28 Jun. 2017

Pros:The van was fine and handled all 7 passengers and our baggage. It was comfortable and easy to handle.Cons:They over charged with a surprise bill on our credit card. The GPS didn't work. There wasn't a Budget office in the airport or any shuttle or directions to the pickup location. The service desk person wasn't interested in our rental and kept up a conversation with a co-worker and made us wait. The drop off in the same location was very poorly signed and we got lost several times after disgorging five or our party at the airport terminal. When we finally found the rental return location the staffer was surly and when we mentioned that the GPS wasn't working he threw it in a bin and did not give us any satisfaction that we would get a credit. He said that there would be no paperwork!Reviewed 5 Nov. 2018

Horrible experiencePros:Car was decently cleanedCons:Corruption—Attempted to trick me into signing to be charged 500 euros for a late return without agreeing to in terms of contract and after I returned on time. What a nightmareReviewed 24 Oct. 2018
