Easy pick up and drop off. People were very helpful and polite.Reviewed 7 Aug. 2022
review fromkayak
The check in line was terrible, at least 10 people in line and it took at least half an hour. After I was checked in, I was told to wait outside in the heat while someone brought my car around. This took another 20 minutes. I only kept the car for 3 hours, I just needed to drive from one airport to another. When I returned the car, there was not a single person, I had to use the dropbox. I would have liked to do a damage walk around with a representative. Alls well that ends well, the worst part was waiting in the heat. No major problems.Reviewed 7 Aug. 2022

I like that the car pickup and drop off was close and convenient. I disliked I had to switch from a premium car to and SUV that reeked of smoke/weed and other vile smells. Interior was slimy and hadn’t been cleaned or wiped down very well. My son had to detox all the interior touch points with Clorox cloths before our drive.Reviewed 31 Jul. 2022

The pickup was over an hour wait . The line extended beyond the building. The staff was friendly and we did receive an upgrade, but the car was not clean.Reviewed 1 Jun. 2022

I made a Priceline deal through Kayak, but when I returned the car, they charged full price. Had to call Budget Customer Service to get it fixed.Reviewed 24 May 2022

There were not enough counter staff (3) at the Raleigh combined Budget, Avis and a third rental counter for pickup. One of the 3 disappeared early on and did not return. The person waiting on me was friendly, however, under the pressure of many people waiting in line. The Honda Accord was enjoyable to drive and clean. It ran very well. The return process was disappointing. FIrst, the return area for Budget was gated. After seeing a sign to go to Avis it went better in dropping off the car and keys. Second, I never saw a place to drop off my paperwork. There were too many people in line to pick up cars to have waited to turn it in at the desk.Reviewed 12 May 2022

The location where the reservation was made was closed, they were not able / willing to provide me or redirect me to another one of their locations that could replace the service, they told me to use a different car rental company.Reviewed 4 May 2022
review fromkayak
I cannot imagine in this day that a company's reservation system would not indicate the volume of reserved rentals that needed to be in a specific location and that their reservation system would not be tied to the local airport they're situated at notifying them to the potential volume they should expect. There was a two hour wait, standing in line, to get a vehicle that was not what I had reserved. There were not enough available vehicles to go around so they were giving whatever they had on hand to whoever happened to be standing at the window at that moment. I watched as my reserved vehicle was given to the person in front of me and when it was my turn at the window, shoulders were shrugged and a set of keys were tossed my way. I was advised to note any scratches larger that a dollar bill and any dents larger than a golf ball. Mind you, it was now midnight so no light to see the car, and they had run it through a car wash so any defects would have been hidden by the water drops. Fortunately there were none when I looked in the morning. Returning the car was just as special. No indication of the process and when I asked I was rudely told, "just leave the keys on the seat and walk away." What a madhouse. I'm nobody special, I understand that. But treat people how you want to be treated and they'll come back for more. Over the last thirty years I have rented cars across the globe while stationed overseas and when traveling locally and abroad. As for me, if I happen to be back in Raleigh, I will not be patronizing this location of Budget, Avis, or Payless as this was by far the worst rental experience I have ever had. On a positive note, the older man who was running himself ragged to get cars ready deserves kudos and a raise for his hustle and dogged determination to make up for Budget's shortfalls.Reviewed 28 Apr. 2022
