My wife had 2 tires going flat. She took the car in to switch the car and was told budget didn’t have the same car and up graded her with $10 extra a day. We were renting for 60 days. Not impressedReviewed 11 Mar. 2024

pickup overall was pretty bad. very long lines with very slow checkout process. stood in line for a good hour before being helped. then because of a short staff, the person helping me had to leave to help other people who were dropping off cars or had other issues after checking out. staff was super friendly just stretched really thin and process to check out (even though I completed all information ahead of time by scanning QR code on bus) was really slowReviewed 4 Mar. 2024
review fromkayak
Only problem was that the pick up process was between 90 and 120 minutes. The wait line was about 30 minutes. The person behind the counter was stressed out (new employee) and it took about 90 minutes to get my vehicle. Drop off was easy (5 minutes). And they billed me exactly what they quoted me.Reviewed 3 Mar. 2024

Hello, It's weird service. Budget did not give any document for the final price. Just said they will send an email but no message until returning the car. Could you check and give me a feedback what's the final price including the insurance?Reviewed 9 Dec. 2023

At first it seemed it was going to be a long wait at counter , but KOA Budget was well staffed with experienced employees; which moved the line. We received our Jeep and headed out. Shortly after leaving we noticed the AC not working as it should and returned the vehicle. Again service was quick and easy to change vehicles. Thank youReviewed 14 Mar. 2023

Pick up/drop off was very simple. The shuttle at pick up and drop off came quickly and the drivers were great. All staff we encountered were great. Price was good but I had to shop around a lot to find a dealReviewed 23 Aug. 2022
