Do not rent a Budget Rental CAr in Dominican RepubCons:I picked up the rental car in Punta Cana and dropped it off in Santiago. The guys doing the initial inspection in Punta Cana did not see a small chip in the windshield (so small it could have been mistaken for a drop of water) nor did they give me a copy of the inspection form. When I dropped it off in Santiago it took them 2 hours to send the information to the office there and claimed that the chip was my fault. Next thing I know, I have more than an $800 charge on my credit card with no receipt emailed to me explaining charges. Called budget customer service and was basically told its a 3rd party office and they can't help me. Ill let you be the judge, but seems like a pretty lucrative way to take advantage of tourists to me.Reviewed 4 Mar. 2016

Charged extraCons:We waived all insurance and liability. The agreement was in Spanish and we asked over and over if we would be charged extra and they said no. When we returned the car to punta cana airport we were charged $120 extra for liability and road side assistance. We had to hurry to airport and could not stay to discuss the inaccuracies. We called budget and they said they will send a claim but will likely not work since everything was signed (in Spanish). The rental car was dirty and banged up with only 7000 miles.Reviewed 15 Aug. 2017

Pros:There is not much I liked. Very disappointedCons:It was hard to communicate with the sales reps. We were told we had to carry the insurance even though a credit card covered it or we wouldn't have ended up with a vehicle. And the total price ended up being nearly twice the amount we were quoted.Reviewed 8 Mar. 2017

Terrible Experience with Budget in Dominican RepublicCons:The car was not ready when we got there and we had to be shuttled to another location to pick it up. I had purchased additional insurance on Expedia that I was then told when I arrived at Budget that that insurance was not valid for Budget nor in the Dominican Republic at all, so then I had to purchase another whole insurance. The person assisting me was rude and argumentative. He had me signing papers without even telling me what I was signing for nor what the price was going to be that I was committing/signing to. When I asked him the price he pitched a big fight and acted very immature and like I was an inconvenience. The car I got had tons and tons of dents all over it so I then had to make sure that they saw every single one so that I did not get scammed even more.Reviewed 14 Apr. 2017
