Budget took advantage of me, LOTS OF HIDDEN FEES!!Pros:The car was clean, and new.Cons:Very poor communication, as to a few users on here, i signed up thinking i was going to pay $200 for a week with a car and insurance from Allianz, but that was sadly not the case. Once i arrived, i was greeted with $300 of additional fees, Including VAT, city tax (which the rental said was already paid for when i checked out), and also a destination fee given i was not returning at the same spot, ($65). None of this was mentioned when i booked the car! To top it off, they had the nerve to give me a car with 3/4 of a tank (marked full) and have you agree to the policy of $65 to fill up the tank at the end of the rental if it is not exactly full. Ridiculous. Then Avis recommended we purchase an additional $40/day of insurance to ensure our deductible ($1000) is not put into jeopardy if we get into an accident. Just insane. SO in summary, i got a car with 3/4 tank of gas (marked full). Was supposed to pay $200 with insurance taxes fees for 5 days, ended up paying $600+. STAY AWAY!! SCAM!!Reviewed 2 Oct. 2016

Pros:The automatic car was ready when we arrived in Palermo. The bus to the car rental location was available. The car was clean, ran well.Cons:When we went to the car, there was a dent on the side and scrapes on the front of the car. We had to go back to get an official to document the damages to avoid charges when we returned the car. The final price was over $80 more than what was originally quoted. This did include the cost of a full tank of gas. We also had to pay for a taxi to get to the airport from the car rental facility after returning the car because there was no shuttle immediately available.Reviewed 29 Jul. 2016

ripp off by palermo, italy airport budget rent offCons:subject: Contract no. 72967895 o. Complain To whom it may concern: I made an reservation with #43733087us6 for 3 days for the amount the of $75 on a small car (reservation is attached) . Upon our arrival Budget agent: " do you want to upgrade the car". we replied: No. we have already booked 4 door Citroen according to our reservation. Budget agent: " No. you have 2 door car with manual transmission. and if you want to upgrade must pay 8Euro per day". and she insiste. we had to accepted. Because, at that time I had no other option. so we by force agreed to upgrade the car to a 4 door small car for 8 euro per day extra. Budget agent: also convinced us to get extra insurance to cover our 1000 euro deductible for total of 28 euro for 3 days. we asked her: then how much would be the total. Budget agent: 65 euro(3 days rent incl. tax) + 24 euro(car upgrade) + 28 euro(ins. coverage for 1000 euro deductible) = 117 euro with tax around 130 euro she said. On Jan 18th before we returning the car we fill up the car with gas. But, at the returning point the budget agent said; According to our calculation 5 more liter gas must be added into your bill. we were very surprised by the final bill of euro 278.49 and he told us to go to the office inside the terminal. so we went in and there was a Budget agent who did not know anything about the contract and even a conversion of the currency from Dollar to euro and said that he must investigate and will let us know soon. no news until now, It is very clear in our contract which is attached , please be inform that i am not approving any charges to my citi bank card until we settle the matter. Thank you for your prompt attention. Faezeh amiriReviewed 19 Jan. 2017

Not good value for moneyPros:Gas mileage was goodCons:There is no option for 6 passengers that is reasonable. You either get a 5 passenger car or have to jump to a large van that seats 8. There are plenty of cars out there that seat 6 or 7 that are much more suited for driving in ItalyReviewed 26 Aug. 2017
