There was three people working but only one person manning a computer. Check-in per person takes about 20 minutes and there's lots of printing and signing paperwork. The car smelled like gasoline had been spilled in it, the infant car seat was broken and unable to be tightened and they were unable to provide a replacement! The second car in the party was not even available as they run on a thin margin of car availability and it hadn't been returned. When it was returned it had no gas (on empty with notification lights) and they refused to gas it. This car had about 60k miles on it and was in poor condition. Third rental car in the group battery died and had to be jumped to get back to the airport. Yay!Reviewed 27 Feb. 2024

Pros:Very easy pick up and drop off, very good quality cars and category as promised for very affordable price. We had to switch cars between NZ islands and it was extremely “trouble-free”.Reviewed 2 Jan. 2020

Awful experience - rude, unhelpful desk person, noCons:Our flight came in late and we missed the pick up window. I emailed Budget to let them know, but this message didn't get through to the rental location. When we picked up our car, the woman was not very friendly and said we missed our window and it was given away. She said they had no cars left for us. She did not give us other options of where to rent or what to do in this situation. She did not show sympathy either. Do not rent from Budget. We went with Europcar in the end. They were nice and had a great car for us (and their counter was right next to the Budget one).Reviewed 27 Feb. 2017

Pros:We just dropped off our car in Queenstown, didn't pick one up, so not much to really report in the "like" or "dislike" columns that hasn't already been said.Cons:Maybe would've been useful to have some signage with instructions since there was only one staff member around and I didn't want to interrupt him only to find out I didn't need to do anything other than drop the car off and deposit the keys.Reviewed 24 Feb. 2017
