They did not have a car available in the class I selected. They charged me the upgrade difference for something that I did not have because they did not have cars. She blamed on me arriving early, but I was only 45 minutes early because our flight arrived early.Reviewed 3 Feb. 2024

Car was dirty exterior and interior, I was lied to, and the car smelled like wet dog when the ac was on. Customer service by phone was non existent. Worse experience ever. Never use Budget again!Reviewed 16 Jan. 2024
review fromkayak
We were not shown our contract and were told to sign what was a “authorization”. Our estimate of $160 ballooned to over $600 when the billed arrived. Underhanding, unethical business practices. As regular travelers, I will never use againReviewed 19 Dec. 2023

You rented me a truck they did not have. I needed a truck bed to move a couch. I has to scramble and waste time to get a replacement. I spent more time and money, all because I relied on your reservation. Had I not, I could have easily gotten another truck.Reviewed 16 Nov. 2023

Like- Easy check in with Karen who was quick & friendly. Dislike- car didn’t seem clean & had a stench to it when AC was on?Reviewed 9 Oct. 2023

I liked the friendliness of the rental agent; I do believe his name was Michael. The questions I asked, he was able to answer. Michael was very knowledgeable. I knew I would be dropping off the car early in the morning, and I needed to know what to do. He told me about the inside drop box for the keys, and not to give them to anyone who may approach me. My rental was clean and gassed up...nice SUV. I had no trouble with the vehicle, which lets me know it was well-maintained. In fact, the trailer where Budget is located, is clean, too. I had an enjoyable rental experience, and I would recommend Budget to my friends.Reviewed 21 Oct. 2022
