Pros:Not much.Cons:On the website, I had reserved a standard-size SUV. When I went to pick up the vehicle, they gave me one that I was not familiar with but which I soon learned was compact SUV. I did not have time to go back and complain, but it made our entire trip a bit harrowing, and I feel like I was ripped off by Budget. This felt like a bait-and-switch scam. When I picked up the car, it was clean, but it had that horrible "new car smell" in it that is really disgusting, especially for someone who has allergies. I ended up having to light a match inside the vehicle in order to subdue that grotesque smell. When I went to drop off the vehicle, the entrance to the Budget drop off location was closed and it pointed me to Avis. This forced me to backup in the wrong direction on a one-way street. There was a tiny sign at the Avis drop-off location for Budget but it was not visible unless you stopped at the Avis drop-off location and looked for it. Overall, this was not a pleasant experience and I cannot recommend either Budget or Kayak.Reviewed 16 Oct. 2020

Pros:Guy in the booth was nice.Cons:Loaded car up and drove off only to find they put the wrong car in the wrong parking spot. THEN AVIS Budget group has done this repeatedly. You drive less than 75 miles and THEY AUTOMATICALLY ADD A FUEL CHARGE, even if the guy at returns notes that you filled the tank. Most people won't complain and you will spend hours trying to resolve this with their Call Center, the Social Media Group and then the Executive TEAM, JUST SAVE TIME AND AVOID BUDGET AVIS AT ALL COST (or be prepared to be ripped off and spend hours needlessly.)Reviewed 22 Jan. 2021

Hooked it up when issues arosePros:Apparently kayak doesn't communicateven well with what they process of pick up is and the truck was marked with a different name but once I was picked up the guy was really nice and upgraded me for my troubles. Overall great experience!Reviewed 20 Jan. 2017

Rental was fine-they tried to overcharge me afterPros:Rental was fineCons:They charged me for not bringing back a full tank even though I filled up and presented the receipt at the time of return. It took multiple phone calls and a lot of time to find the receipt and send it in after the fact to prove I didn't deserve the charge. It seems like they do this to try and squeeze a little more out of youReviewed 11 Mar. 2017
