Cons:This fee for people under 25 is extreme. However, I know this isn't a company-specific issue.Reviewed 16 Apr. 2020

Pros:availability of vehicle newness of vehicles generally quick check in and outCons:car had so much bird debri on it; they did take it to wash it but it must have been spot washed with a quick bucket as there was still stuck on bird debri and I had to ask to it adjust the return time to the time vehicle was actually taken. sometimes car is not in spot designated, opened car in the spot designated and it was not cleaned out and smelled like pot. Went back in..turned out that wasn't the right spot and the right car was in unmarked location. do not like the 'sign this damage waver and just come back if there is damage'. I think the car should be assessed for 'over golf ball sized' damage as they like to call it BEFORE I rent the car; it appears this is not done or is no longer done; or ineptly done??. Do not like the time wasted going to check this then coming back in and dropping off the signed circled damage/no damage sheet rent often; would like some coupons or vouchers do not like some of the distain look on salesfolks when I do not know the exact mileage; it is unlimited mileage that I obtain; that should be checked by them when I return the car. I have enough to do.Reviewed 31 May 2016

Easy rental, great pricePros:Easy/quick pick up and drop off, great priceCons:Car smelled strongly of cigarettes and whatever you used to try to cover cigarettes up. It was really awful and if I had more time I would've tried to trade it for a different car.Reviewed 9 Aug. 2016

Switching to EnterpriseCons:12:30 AM at DTW - waiting in line for 45 minutes to get a car. Only one person working behind the counter. Two other people (including a manager) did not have a willingness to help move along the line. When I said it seemed unreasonable for a Fastbreak customer to wait 45 minutes in line - the employee simply stated there is nothing he could do about it. Poorly trained customer service and an unwillingness to make any difference in the situation. This person was not trained well and I believe it is a culture at Budget. I would use Budget because of a price point advantage - it's no longer worth it to me.Reviewed 17 Apr. 2017

Pros:it was ok, it would be great if there was a more expedited way to return the vehicle.Cons:The car I received was pretty basic, not what I usually get in the same categories from other companies. The vehicle had over 25k miles o it and the tires were worn making it unsafe to travel in the snow with.Reviewed 12 Nov. 2019

Someone didn't do their job right(per employee comCons:Apparently someone didn't do something right. In returning the car something went wrong with the system and I had to go inside and wait in line for 45 minutes, ultimately missing my flight. And costing me over a thousand dollars in expenses to rectify what I feel is the rental company's fault. Very bummed with no apology or reimbursement from the employees...sadReviewed 10 Jun. 2016
