smaller car than expected, use AAA instead if youCons:"standard" car was a buick verano which is much smaller than the toyota camry that was standard on oahu. we locked our keys in the car and called budget customer service and asked for help but they didn't send any info for over an hour, so we called and cancelled and called AAA instead. today over a month later i got a notification that they charged me $55 for the roadside service that I NEVER USED. I will be calling to complain and get my money back. it's ridiculous that they don't keep good enough records to show that i didn't use the service and nobody ever actually showed up. AAA charged me nothing (I already had a membership which costs $49 a YEAR) and was much more responsive than Budget.Reviewed 28 Nov. 2015

Slow servicePros:Easy drop off and quick shuttle to airport.Cons:2 hour wait in line to pickup the car. Had 4 people working and 27 people in line waiting all with reservations. Cars were not ready for pickup once you got to the desk. Additional wait time for car to get cleaned. Car was not washed due to water conservation, so I can't complain to much on that, but no one explains that to you. Not a fun way to start your vacation.Reviewed 20 Jul. 2017

Poor Car ChoicesCons:After waiting 30 min in line to get car the so called full size car a Fusion had no trunk space due to battery. "Nothing else available" so next choice for our group of 5 was luxury BMW at more than twice the price. The designation of full size cars is apparently meaningless.Reviewed 2 Aug. 2017

Cons:First car I was assigned had a keyed door scratch all down the side and was not cleaned. They did quickly change to a fresh car and no issues with the rental..Reviewed 21 Aug. 2017

Horribly Embarassing!Cons:The girl at the counter had trouble running our credit card. Still don’t know what the problem may have been. She announced to everyone in line that my husband’s credit score was too low to rent the car. After having been a customer for 25 years, they will no longer get our business. Incredibly stupid on their part.Reviewed 22 Jul. 2018
