Pros:Drop off was easy. Car was clean and was just what we needed for the weekend.Cons:Pickup took forever. The line was so long and even longer by the time I left. The staff was friendly and was doing their best but they just needed more staff.Reviewed 27 Jul. 2020

Pros:The initial car that we rented from the MKE airport made horrible noises. We were able to go to another location first thing the next morning to switch it out. LUCKILY we were still in the area.Cons:The car could have been cleaner.Reviewed 17 Aug. 2020

Cons:I most important thing you could have done better is to have an ice/snow scraper in the car. It amazed me that a car rented in Wisconsin would not have one. I had to brush/ scrape 2 inches of snow and ice using my hands and a credit card. Ridiculous! The outside of the car was filthy with dirt.Reviewed 19 Mar. 2021

Beware their predatory practices!Pros:Rented a new chevy Cruz. Great car that was getting almost 40 miles to the gallonCons:Beware! Budget has implemented a dishonest business practice. When we returned the car, Budget added a $15 "refueling fee," even though we had filled the tank before returning. When I questioned this fee, the csr asked for a gas receipt. I did not have it because I did not realize I would need it. At no time during our interactions with Budget we're we told that we would need to produce a receipt. The CSR refused to remove the fee even though the gas gauge clearly read Full. I called Budget. This CSR told me that Budget now automatically adds this fee if the car has been driven less than 75 miles, regardless of whether the tank has been filled up (WTF?!). After giving him details about where I filled up car, address, and price per gallon, he agreed to "waive" the fee! This is a sleazy and improper business practice. No way to treat a customer.Reviewed 29 May 2017

Pros:I was impressed with budget rental car service. Kayak not so much. The only reason that there is 1 star for budget car rental is because kayak did not ask for a rating about their service but the service of budget car rental. Kayak 1 star budget car rental 5 stars.Cons:I was given a rental reservation for a compact car even though the budget car rental shop did not have any compact cars in stock. I was pleased with the budget rental center because they worked with me. But not pleased that kayak gave me confirmation and estimated price of a rental car that wasn't availible. I took a 30 minute cab ride in an unfamiliar city to the car rental to pick up my reservation and they didn't have any in stock. What would I have had to do if the rental company wanted to charge me more or regular price for an upgrade? The only reason I used kayak was for the cheaper rate and as for my first experience with kayak I was not impresed. Kayak 1 star budget car rental 5 stat overall.Reviewed 6 Jun. 2017

Not good at allPros:NothingCons:My car had scratched windshield. Almost got in two accidents. Was too far away to swap. Spent hrs on phone trying to get manager to call. Never did.
