The employees at the richmond airport Budget office we're not very friendly they gave me an SUV instead of a car and SUV was a Ford not a Toyota Corolla like I asked for it was raining heavily I did not understand the car and I was not comfortable with an SUV but it was the car that they gave me and since other people were waiting in line for another car I felt I needed to just go ahead and take it I brought it back I believe the next day and said please give me a car I was afraid to drive the SUV I'm very comfortable sedans and especially Toyota brand the Ford controls were completely different from the Toyota brand and did I mention how rude the Richmond Virginia employees were at the Richmond airport unbelievable ! when I was returning the SUV the lady taking the car said what is the mileage and I said oh that's a good idea let me look at the mileage too what is that mileage? And she said oh so you're gonna do my job now huh? Excuse me? I mean was that necessary such attitudes I found not only from the budget Avis employees but just the large majority of staff in Customer Service positions were just plain rude and had such attitudes I don't know what made them so unhappy I had just met them so it wasn't my fault I just didn't understand why they were so unhappy in their jobs so leave if you hate the job there's no reason to be rude when someone has done nothing to you .Reviewed 18 May 2024

It took 2hrs for me to get my rental keys when I landed. I had to wait 1.5hrs just to get checked in and then another 30mins just to pick up the keys after being checked in. Absolutely ridiculous.Reviewed 13 May 2024

I had a reservation for 10, and didn't receive a car until 11:15. All of the other customers had to wait at least 30 minutes, and they had reservations too. Based on location reviews, this is the norm rather than a one off occurrence. The car was fine.Reviewed 29 Feb. 2024

Pick up was terrible, long lines, inefficient , not enough staff to handle the situation correctly. Many customers were visibly upset. I hope they hire more staff to work during peak times.Reviewed 12 Oct. 2023

The person behind the desk did not explain the contact when he wanted me to sign it. He did not make eye contact at all. Outside of the car was dirty. He upgraded my car to a SUV without informing me in advance. I only knew when he gave me the keys. I didn’t want a bigger car. But took it anyway. The price offer for tool pay was $10 more than what was advertised in the store. Thanks!Reviewed 10 May 2022

Top tips for renting a car from Budget in Richmond

  • Even though Richmond, VA is the capital of Virginia, it isn’t the largest city in the state. That distinction belongs to Virginia Beach, which covers nearly 500 square miles. But Richmond does stretch out across more than 60 square miles, so if you’re planning to visit soon, you’ll want to book Budget car rentals in Richmond. When you have a rental car available to you in Richmond, you won’t have to worry about constantly calling on ride-sharing services or relying on public transportation while you’re in the city.
  • While the roads in Richmond can get congested at times, the traffic in the area isn’t nearly as bad as it is in other major cities in the area. For this reason, you won’t necessarily need to reserve a small rental car from Budget to make sure you’re able to navigate your way through traffic. You’ll be free to choose from some of the larger options that Budget has available, such full-size cars, minivans, and even SUVs if you like.
  • It isn’t that difficult to get around in Richmond once you’ve gotten the hang of it, but it does have many different sections that can make it confusing when you’re first driving in the city. You’ll find that the city’s vibrant downtown section is only about 20 minutes from the part of town that contains almost nothing but farmland. Because of this, you may want to request that Budget provide you with a GPS navigation device for your rental car. It’ll require you to pay a small fee when you book Budget car rentals in Richmond, but it may be well worth it if you’re taking your first trip to Richmond.
  • If you’re still kicking around the idea of renting a car in Richmond and unsure of whether it would be the best option for you, Budget will allow you to make a reservation without pre-paying for it. When you do this, you’ll be able to cancel a rental car reservation at any time and not face a cancellation fee. Take advantage of this opportunity by renting a car for your Richmond trip now, and then cancel it later if you decide you won’t need it.
  • Book your rental car from Budget in Richmond at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price.
  • Economy rental cars from Budget in Richmond are around 45% cheaper than other car types, on average.
