The drop off signage needs additional work as it was very difficult to figure out where to pull in our car and the person checking in early in the morning was very unprofessional to us as we didn't know where to put the car, seems you didn't want to walk the extra 50 ft to get the carReviewed 23 Aug. 2022

When I got to the location I was set to pick up at I was told my only option for a car was a pick up truck. I was renting a car that would be gas friendly for my little road trip. Luckily the clerk was able to get me to another location who was able to help me. Upon waiting for my car another person walked in who had made a reservation online and was told they didn’t have a car for her. Just seemed very unorganized.Reviewed 15 Aug. 2022

The Budget counter at CMH said we were in the wrong place and that the place where we should be was NOT at the airport. It was too late to go to the other place but fortunately Hertz had cars available and we were able to get a car where we were. TERRIBLE customer service!!Reviewed 19 Jul. 2022

Can’t remember a time when i was treated so poorly, so unprofessionally. Though i had confirmed reservations , there were no cars available when i arrived. The agent at the counter would not even make eye contact, just continually repeated they had no cars. They made no attempt to notify me of the situation nor explain situation. I will not use Budget, or Kayak again.Reviewed 16 Jun. 2022

The pick up was a nightmare. For the record, I went with budget because it had “in terminal” pick-up which is important to me for my right schedule. All the car rental places require a shuttle. We then waited in line for over an hour.Reviewed 30 May 2022

Super easy. Checked in and paid at the desk. They told me where to go. Keys were in the car. Car was bigger and better than expected.Reviewed 28 May 2022

I went to pick up the car at counter off airport location. Counter refused to give me car they don’t even know why with my valid driver license stating that they don’t accept my licence, it has temporary. I have to go to airport to pick up cars while Budget policy is clearly stating that temporary license are accepted. I checked the website and took a screenshot. These counter needs to be more educated to provide services. For this reasons I will report this as my license card is valid with clean driving record and delivered by the DMV itself. It is a regular driver license issued by the government. It was the first time I got a mediocre service from budget. I wasted time and money and I can’t pick up the car. I will avoid doing these reservations.Reviewed 23 May 2022

Nissan Altima is apparently considered a full-size car. 1 agent working the desk with a line of at least 30 people is not good customer service. All cars should be available for fast pickup vs having to wait in the line.Reviewed 17 May 2022
