Doing a great job with what they havePros:Pickup was super fast. I did have to find the area where they kept the cars, but once I located it, the actual picking up of the car was really quick. The guy that was working outside only spoke Spanish, so be aware. You're reading this in English, if you don't speak any Spanish, you are in Chile, you might have some issues. The car itself handled great. The clutch was smoother than my girlfriends car back home. The A/C pumped out a lot of cool air for the warm summer, and the car had excellent handling and plenty of tire tread. We ended up getting an economy sedan. It's too bad I forgot exactly which one it was, because that thing went down some roads I wasn't sure we were going to make it down in the Conguillio National Park. We drove it all over the place and it really did it's job well. Drop-off, again, had to find the entrance, went super smooth as well. It took about 1 minute for the guy to inspect the car, and then I had to go back inside to the counter where they charged my card. For people reading this, the guys inside the airport seem to have a decent grasp of English. I started in Spanish, but the gentleman I was working with switched to English when he said a word I didn't know, and we completed the transaction in English. So the inside part of renting and paying for the car should be easy enough if you only speak English. The outside part will be a bit more challenging.Cons:The cars are located outside with no covered walkway. During heavy rain, it's impossible to get your luggage to the car without it getting soaked. Also, when returning the car, be aware that there's one "Entrance" and ALL rentals are in that same lot. If you're thinking there are separate lots for different agencies, like I did, you'll drive right past the entrance. IMPORTANT NOTE!!! There are no petrol stations near the airport, put fuel in the car before you get there when returning it or you'll get charged an arm and a leg. I remembered to do so, thankfully, but I want people reading this to be aware that is an issue with other travelers.Reviewed 5 Jan. 2017

The rental agency held $4500 because we opted outPros:The car was clean and adequateCons:Because we did not opt in for the insurance, the rental agency held $4500 USD until we returned the car. There was no indication of this policy beforehand, nor was it listed in writing in any of the rental agreement documents.Reviewed 25 Dec. 2016

Don't trust your 'confirmation' to be confirmation for a car!Pros:The car was lovely and drove well.Cons:The pick-up experience was horrendous. After a hellish day of travel, I was so relieved to finally be in Santiago and pick up my rental car so I could head to my hotel for some sleep. I arrived around 11:30pm and was told that I wouldn't be able to pick up my car until 8:00 or 9:00am!!! Even though I had a confirmed reservation! I jokingly said, "so, what...you just want me to sleep in the airport?" (Mind you, I'm a young, solo, female traveler.) And he said, "yup, sorry - there are other people who made reservations earlier than you." What does that even mean?! In my eyes a reservation is a reservation is a reservation...how can you prioritize that?? I tried to find a safe spot in the airport for me and my luggage, but definitely wasn't able to sleep. At 5:00am I literally BEGGED the guy at the counter to give me my car, which, you know, I HAD RESERVED! He begrudgingly agreed and at 5:30 I was finally on my way. Would never, ever, ever rent from Budget again!Reviewed 5 Dec. 2017

Really difficult to find dropoff locationPros:When we couldn't find the dropoff,my husband went and found someone from Budget and he came and drove us to the location which we wouldn't have found. They said that happens all the time.Cons:We had to wait at pickup for the car for a while. Then the car was a bit rough looking and gas tank wasn't full but they told us that. The dropoff took about an hour. Thankfully we had a lot of time planned at the airport because we needed it. Sign posts are awful. Apparently, you need to follow the sign for national rental car which is off to the right.Reviewed 23 Nov. 2016
