Cons:The car was filthy. Not washed , inside lord ok, no trash or dirty but smells like cigarettes, alot of cigarettes. I went to the dollar store abd bought myself doest air freshener abd window cleaner abd paper towels to clean it myself, after ask we are in a pandemic abd I have to sit in this thing all day. THEN I wanted to extend my rental but it was $57 a day to extend my $42 a day rental..... that's a joke. It should carry the same price. They close 30 minutes after i dopped it off... so instead of making $40 they got nothing. I was told the reason they didn't wash the car was that the Pipes were frozen.... hasn't been that cold. She was the only one there.. She was very polite, seems like they expect too much from her. Very busy. But for$43 ......i was ok with it.Reviewed 11 Jan. 2021

Pros:Over all it was a good experience.Cons:The wait for the shuttle bus at Philadelphia airport was way too long. The other rental companies had 2-3 shuttles come and go in the time we waited for your shuttle. I started wondering if you weren’t running shuttles. Then when we got on the shuttle it was hot with no ac.Reviewed 10 Sep. 2020

I liked itPros:All of the people were great. I loved the bus drivers. The counter person was knowledgeable and did not try to talk me into something that I did not want. The return gal was lovely and friendly. The car was great. It had Apple Car play that I am looking to get installed in my truck, so I got to use it. I also liked that Budget was on-site (OK all car rentals are off-site, but some are just offsite, where you could walk over to the airport, across the busy street and the parking lot if you needed to.). The day I booked was the day I left and car rentals were posted at 477% of normal rentals, but I got a car and it was a nice one!Cons:Renting at Philadelphia Airport is expensive. Even before the taxes, the rate was over $100/day and the taxes and fees the airport collects is over $50/day.Reviewed 18 Aug. 2017

FrustratingPros:NothingCons:Confusion, long waits, very unhappy staff, did not get my quoted price, will never use budget again. Given wrong information, waited almost 2 hours after a red eye flight! Given more frustrating & wrong information when we returned the car! Car smelled like pee, was not clean, they made a mistake and said we were in the wrong car! The car that was supposed to be ours was wrecked & they called us to find out what car we had!!! So mad about the whole situation. I really want my money back. They offered 40.00 off a future rental, hilarious!!Reviewed 23 Aug. 2018

Unhappiest Budget location I can rememberPros:Location is good but then all the car rental places are in the same spot so not really a deciding factorCons:Long wait for the shuttle bus. I ended up walking. I was the only person checking in to rent a car but the total lack of enthusiasm from the two people at the desk was amazing. It was so bad that it was actually curious. The person who dealt with my reservation was ungracious, and totally lacking in rapport. I could have been a lump of coal for all she cared. I placed my license and credit card on had arrived at the counter. Her retort was "Don't leave them there. Hand them to me". Apparently reaching out was an effort. She did not seem like a bad person, just someone who has had her soul sucked out of her. She could have been peeling potatoes for all she cared. Then the car was unclean. All sorts of stains on the front seat and things stuck on the steering wheeI. The only person who seemed to have any life in them was the lady at the exit gate. On my return, the car drop-off are was a mess. It was unclear where you should return the car. There were people milling around but no one seemed to be attending to customers. Someone eventually came by and said they would get someone. A someone did appear after 10 minutes, but had to go off again to get her equipment. At this point there were several people waiting. Then her machine malfunctioned, so she called someone over and they proceeded to have an argument in front of everyone about who was on, who was off, how badly things were set up. As a final step, they got the bill wrong and overcharged me! Looks as if there was no/incompetent management at that facility.Reviewed 8 Aug. 2017
