Relatively painless, but issues with SunpassPros:Great vehicle, smooth ride.Cons:The Sunpass worried me! Despite keeping it in the OFF position so as to pay the tolls by cash, the toll both operator told me it still read! I went ahead and paid the tolls by cash anyway, but I worried that I may be double billed!Reviewed 5 Mar. 2017

Easy PeasyPros:I was greeted with a bright smile and tolerance of the rain soaked contract that I handed in. My transaction took less than 5 minutes. And the employee was happy to put the final total on a different card than the on I supplied initially.Reviewed 23 May 2017

Pros:I wish i had something positive to say but i do not.Cons:Well to be perfectly honest it was the worst experiance i have ever had with any rental car company. After booking i called budget rental in gainsville three different times over 3 days only to be transferred to not 1 but 3 different individuals who could barely speak english and were definately not in Gainsville and of next to no help. They confirmed and told me that someone would be at the budget counter when i arrived or that i would be able to get my keys and that someone would contact me withing 24 hours of flying (which never happened). I landed in Gainsville FL at 936 (they close at 10), but nobody was at the desk, i called the budget company 3 different times that night only to be transferred to individuals that lets face it should not be in customer care and their "supervisors" were an absolute joke and even worse help. Turns out that the card i have on file they didn't charge and they cancelled the booking giving me 0 notification of anything and what customer care do you ask i got as a return? "your rental was cancelled cause we are braindead" oops. no respect, no nothing, if i could fire everyone i spoke with, i would start there. In closing i would like to say that budget your company and your customer care is absolute trash and i would rethink your current business plan and staff before bankruptcy. Worst ever go to ENTERPRISE they were amazing and i could actually talk to someone at their local desk when i called #gasp imagine that? budget = pile of hot garbage. so many other things ill keep to myself......... Please, Please budget do not reach out to me unless you intend to give me cash for the hell you put me, all those others who had to hear me rage and go off in the middle of the airport on your phone staff for screwing me and my brother and sister out of our car stranding us with no apology or reconciliation and zero i mean zero customer care.Reviewed 16 Sep. 2020
