Better instruction on how to drop off rental carReviewed 9 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

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

Staff was very efficient and helpful, vehicle was OK, but not very clean. Waited in checkout line with about 20 other customers for approx. 45 minutes because Budget had only one employee checking customers out. This is not an isolated situation because when I returned the vehicle there were approx. 35 customers in line with only two Budget employees. Not acceptable because Budget knows the reservation schedule.Reviewed 7 May 2022

The car could have been cleaned better. Found a bottle of previous user under the seat. Car was not full loaded with petrol, but that i managed by keeping my bills from tanking gasoline. With that i could prove that i tanked more than that i used. So that part went very wellReviewed 4 May 2022

The car smelled like cigarette smoke. That’s the only part that ruined the experience. Everything else was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful.Reviewed 3 Apr. 2022

I booked this car for my wife because her return flight was canceled. She got to the counter and they told her she couldn't rent at that location because she had a debit card (with a Visa logo) even though she'd used that card a few days earlier to rent a car at Avis. They gave her a Budget location they said WOULD take the card. She called a cab and went to the location and spent $40 to get there. They pulled a credit check on her and said she was declined??!! She has an 800 credit score as a few weeks ago so that's laughable. She then had to spend $40 to get back to the airport! After wasting 2 hours with Budget and missing multiple potential flights she found a flight with a midnight arrival. I've rented with Budget for over 20 years and I have to say this is the WORST experience I've ever had with ANY company. Their payment rules are a joke. I could have just given Budget my CC number over the phone and paid for the car (if not for their backwards rules). You cost us $80 and 15 hours of travel that should have been 8. There are many more details to this infuriating story, but I've said enough. Disgusted beyond belief, TomReviewed 11 Mar. 2022
