It was very spacious. My driver was very friendly and funny 🤣😁. There was a bathroom in the trunk. And I needed (of course)to pee so you know where I left a wet spot(the trunk). The drivers around us were very friendly 😸, probably cuz I put a "baby 🍼 on board" sticker on the car. And my dog 🐶 absolutely loved 😍 the drive. He was barking like crazy.Reviewed 5 Jun. 2024

It was a fairly seamless process. The representative was very helpful. My only criticism is that I never received either via email or print the contract. This is not the fault of the representative. He attempted to print it and that failed. He also attempted to email it twice and never came through. I think Budget needs to make sure they are investing in their equipment. The printer at the airport was fairly old and outdated. But other than that, great experience!Reviewed 8 Apr. 2024
