Inexpensive but flawed servicePros:The offered pricing was competitive. The vehicle was clean. Being able to pick up and drop of directly at Heathrow Terminal 5 - no shuttle - is a plus.Cons:At pick-up I was told that the level of vehicle I had pre-ordered (the smallest) wasn't available. I had to take something much larger (a 7 seater wagon) which was less manoeuvrable and more expensive in terms of gas mileage. I was renting for two weeks and driving more than a thousand miles so this was a significant factor. There are obviously advantages to having something larger but that wasn't what I had ordered. I had a bit of a rant but nothing could be done so I had to accept. The vehicle than had several fairly significant scratches that hadn't been logged on the condition sheet which I had to sort out. The vehicle itself was a complicated Citroen which has a lot if idiosyncracies I could have done without. After all this, the amount actually charged to my credit card was about $30 more than the price I had agreed to when I booked the vehicle on-line. I am in the process of trying to get to the bottom of why this happened. Something similar occured on a previous rental with Budget. They offer competitive pricing but I'm probably not going to rent from them again after this.Reviewed 19 Oct. 2016

Good experience. Will come back.Pros:The frequent pick up van from the terminal to the pick up car location. The van driver was very helpful with our luggage. The process was very smooth. If not because of my credit card international limit, I might have finished the process in 5 minutes. Will come back!Cons:Not can I think off, but if there's any, there would be the officer who's in charge for pick up to explain in full clarity about extra charges, especially related to the insurance.Reviewed 29 May 2017

Great ServicePros:Very impressed with the process to collect (a little less slick dropping off). Everyone I spoke to was very polite, couldn't fault the staff, vehicle or the overall experience.Cons:Drop off process was not as easy as pickup, wasn't clear where to return the car and I was given conflicting information about who would see me and where I needed to park.Reviewed 1 Aug. 2017

Great car, awful phone service, and overchargedPros:The car was cute, cool, and had only 78 miles on it.Cons:I was charged a full day's hire for 0.1 hours, which was nothing more than the time I waited for an attendant to check me in. Additionally, phone service when I needed to extend my hire was beyond attrocious. I'm talking cable-company level of awful. I called the number on my hire agreement, spent 10 minutes on hold on an international call, was told to call another number because they couldn't help me. Repeat this two more times. Finally, after calling the fourth number, I find out I can only extend my hire by calling THE VERY FIRST number I called, but only after 20:00, which is when the number stops being routed to the completely helpless call center, and instead allegedly rings the actual rental location, which is the only way I can extend the hire. After nearly two hours on hold trying to reach the desk, and never getting my call answered (though I was unhelpfully returned to the main menu and sent to the back of the call queue numerous times), I finally heard an announcement that I could email them my inquiry. Which, after $30.00 in absolutely wasted phone charges, I did. The car was great, but the phone service was an absolute disaster, and being charged a full day for 6 minutes of waiting in the return queue makes me want to never use Budget again.Reviewed 5 Aug. 2016

Pros:The car was fine and what I ordered and it was clean. Return was also quick. The shuttle to and from the airport was also quick and friendly.Cons:We got a GPS but the SD card had been stolen from the car so I went back in to get a new SD card and they didn't have any. The only way I could then get a gps was to upgrade to another vehicle, and the closest upgrade was 40% more of a daily rate than I was currently quoted to pay. So we opted out of the gps, in a foreign country... fun. Also the clerk did not give us good directions out of the area, and told us there would be a gas station on the way back in to return it and THERE WAS NOT so I had to end up paying their gas fee for not returning it full as I received it.Reviewed 13 Mar. 2017
