misleading charges for gasolineCons:I was asked if i wanted the option of having Budget fill the gas tank when I arrived so that I would not have to. I agreed, believing they would charge me for whatever amount of gas was needed to fill the tank, at the rate they quoted me per gallon. When I received the bill they charged me for a full tank of gas at that rate, telling me that this is what I had agreed to. I had returned the car nearly full thinking that they would charge me only for the small amount necessary to fill the tank. This is misleading. If they intended to charge me for a full tank of gas from the beginning they could have quoted me a flat rate for the car I was renting rather than a per gallon rate. I am angry. Now I have to choose between letting them get away with it or filing a consumer protection lawsuit to get my thirty dollars back.Reviewed 9 Apr. 2016

Small airport location, convenient.Pros:No line at rental counter when I dropped the car off midday. No need for shuttle.Cons:Unattended drop off area so you need to go to the counter, which is a short walk away compared to larger airports. Not terrible, when the weather is nice.Reviewed 14 Nov. 2017
