The budget staff, car, and service were all good. However, the long wait made it very difficult in the heat. It took one and a half hours to get the car. There were so many people waiting that I thought they would run out of cars.Reviewed 6 Jul. 2024

I waited nearly 1 hour to be picked up by the airport shuttle. Everything else went fine, but watching other rental company shuttles go by two or three times while I was waiting was disappointing. Particularly since my flight got in after midnight.Reviewed 3 Jul. 2024
review fromkayak
My rating are low because the pick up process was really below par from a customer service perspective. I would anticipate knowing the bookings for the day that one know what staffing to have. Not only were they short of people, the employees took their breaks as the lines kept growing. The total time per customer was very long in some instances and folks just appeared frustrated. After an hour and a half of waiting when I picked my car it gave me an indication that the oil needed to be changed. Lack of attention to derails - either the car should have been serviced or the oil sensor should have been reset. Low viscosity oil can cause engines to overheat. Bot something you want as a customer.Reviewed 25 Jun. 2024

Pick up of my vehicle took 2 hours and 15 minutes!! Horrible experience with pick up!!! We waited 40 minutes alone at the airport for a shuttle as every other rental car company had shuttles there numerous times in that 40 minute wait. We would not recommend this Budget to anyone.Reviewed 23 Jun. 2024

They tried to increase the price with forced insurance. When I repeatedly said no they eventually just got mad at me and angrily gave me the quoted price. Then they gave me no help with the car.Reviewed 20 Jun. 2024

The line went around the building. Probably a 2hr wait. Ended up getting an Uber and renting somewhere else far from the airport.Reviewed 16 May 2024

The way to pick up my rental, took about an hour and 45 minutes to get to the point where I was able to leave with the car When I returned the car to the address listed in San Jose, there were not clear instructions for returning the budget rental carReviewed 12 May 2024
review fromkayak
I was told i would not be charged a one way rental fee of $100; but the charge appeared on my bill. No one at budget answers the phone for customer serviceReviewed 9 May 2024
review fromkayak
I’m so upset with how much budget charged over what we were quoted. My quote from Kayak was $500 Canadian and the charged price was double that. It’s absolutely insane that this can even happen. We picked the car up on time and we dropped it off on time. With a full tank of gas. Horrendous business practicesReviewed 9 May 2024
