Cons:When booking this car, I imported airport codes for both the pick-up and drop-off locations for the car. Apparently, when booking with a third party website (like Kayak) you'll just automatically switch the locations for pick-up and drop-off to local rental locations based on price. At pick-up at the Ontario airport, I was alerted that my car was at a Budget 3.5 miles away and we had to go back to the airport and take a cab to the location. At drop-off (when I was in a hurry to catch a flight) I was alerted they could not receive the car because the drop-off was at a Budget 4 miles away. They said they could drive it over there for a $300 fee. Instead I had to rush the car over to the location and take an Uber back to the airport and barely made my flight. They whole situation was extremely stressful and beyond annoying. I will not be booking with you again. If a customer enters AIRPORT CODES for pick-up and drop-off they should clearly be solidified as the only possible place for pick-up and drop-off.Reviewed 6 Feb. 2017

Pros:They were not open even though they said they were open until noon. I arrived at 11:40am. The guy cleaning the cars took the keys and put them in the office. I hope I don’t get charged for more days.Cons:The car has dirty windows I had to clean them before I went on the road. The car was not full of gas, but I did return it with a full tank. When I returned the car they were not opened. They could have been opened so I know I successfully returned the car.Reviewed 5 Jul. 2020

Cons:The staff was nice pick up had to wait, counter person was on the phone. The car he rented me was not washed it was dirty, it had a dirty glove on the drivers side, it had dog paw prints on the seats and dog hair everywhere in the back. It had sand in the inside of the door handles makeup all over the visor. It had sand and mud on the outside of it. At drop off the gentleman checking the car in was very nice and helpful and the counter person was also very nice he made it very fast and gave me a discount. It was an urgent need to take my son to an important appointment at the children’s hospital so I had no time to take the car back and ask for a new one we had to sanitize wipe the car on the inside our selves in the parking lot prior to putting my son in it. With covid-19 you would think they be more careful with the cars cleanliness prior to renting them out like that.Reviewed 28 May 2020

Pros:The staff was super friendly and the who process was a breeze.Cons:Miss not having a shuttle to and from, but understand that Covid has suspended that service.Reviewed 5 Apr. 2021

Pros:The staff are excellent. I used the current tense as I am still renting and now on my 4th vehicle with the current lease to expire May 5th.Cons:I have no issue with having to exchange the rental on the renewal date each month. What was extremely annoying was the email that I received on the first occasion. The wording was offensive and made me feel that there was an issue with me as a customer. For instance,, there was no explanation as to why the car had to be returned and the wording was "we are not extending your lease and the car must be returned to the nearest Budget airport office as soon as possible."Reviewed 1 Apr. 2021
