Cons:There were very few tourist on St. Thomas during the Corona outbreak. Thankfully they stayed open had sanitizer inside and outside the facility. My flight was cancelled and they made it quick and easy to extend my rental.Reviewed 7 Apr. 2020

Car was beat upPros:There are three places to pick up a car on island. I showed up at the airport 30 mins after my pickup time and they said there weren't any cars available but when I asked if I could pick up at a different location- there were suddenly cars available there. Wouldn't you think the company would send cars over knowing reservations were booked at the other locations? Finally got our car 2 hours later (from the new location that had a lot FULL of available vehicles) and the car was beat up. The trunk barely closed, the passenger side looked like it had been sideswiped and the front end was a mess. The alignment was pulling hard to the right and I'm assuming because it was in an accident previously, the drive was very jerky. The battery for the keyless entry didn't work and was very inconvenient when I'm paying nearly $100 for a one day rental that really turned into 16 hrs. Out of all of the clearly available cars in the second lot I visited- this is the only one we were allowed to rent? Not worth the time, money or hassle.Reviewed 30 Dec. 2016

Pros:They were nice on the phone and in the end I forgot my wallet and the called us just in time.Cons:We call to ask about car seats, they said they take care of it. We arrived an hour earlier, se we talked about the car seats again and waited for our allotted time because there were no other cars, no problem there, the problem is that even when we showed an hour later the car was ready they dumped the car seats on us not on the car, and they knew is was 3 car seats, so that's all the luggage, all 3 kids and all 3 car seats, and if we're paying to use the car seats we do expect to see the car seats in the car not at the window, we have rented cars everywhere domestically and abroad amd that's the first time we have to pay, install and carry car seats.Reviewed 14 Feb. 2021

Horrible experiencePros:It has 4 wheelsCons:The car couldn't make it up hills some times, when I shifted into drive it would sputter at times, and lots of stains on seats. First car I got looked like it was in a demolition derby and smelled like cigarette smoke inside, so I switched cars. It took over 45 mins for them to bring me a car seat for my daughter while we just waited in the car in the parking lot. While driving if I came to a hill I would have to switch from automatic to manual mode in order to make it up the hill otherwise the car would not make it up the hills on the island. Horrible experience won't be using budget again and I wish I didn't spend the money I did on the junk I got.Reviewed 30 Jul. 2016

Cons:When we arrived at the airport, A bit apprehensive having never been anywhere that requires driving on the left side, our 4 door Jeep was not available. The clerk did not seem too concerned with this. She was checking her watch the entire time as if we were keeping her from something else much more important. She gave us a beat up Toyota Camry. No SUV's available. I am 6'6" tall which made it a tight, uncomfortable, fit. It was dirty & smelly. I mean REALLY smelly. We had to postpone our plans for our day in order to wait around for the car to be swapped "IF", as she put it, a Jeep becomes available. Not a great start to a vacation.Reviewed 6 Jan. 2016

Cons:The car I received was newer. Had only 3700 miles on it, but they were very hard earned miles. The radio was defective and would barely rise above a whisper only after playing with the volume very lightly. The staff during pickup need an attitude adjustment; very rude.Reviewed 18 Oct. 2020

Pros:Drop off was easy. I just pulled it into a space and dropped the keys at the rental desk inside the airport.Cons:Lots of things could be improved. I reserved the car 3 weeks in advance, and had to wait an hour past the reserved pick-up time to get keys. The excuse was "we're busy." Five minutes after leaving the rental lot, various warning lights came on and remained on/off throughout our week rental. Car could have been cleaner too.Reviewed 20 Mar. 2021
