Get ready for an insurance scam...Pros:It was not great.Cons:When we got to the airport, 3:15am, there were no representatives to tell us where to go. When we found the office, they told me they couldn’t use my credit card because “it doesn’t have numbers on the front”. After a 35 minute argument the guy finally caved and managed to “fix the system” that prevented him from completing the booking. I had declined insurance bc my travel card covers it and they were trying to get me to buy insurance. Anyways, just keep your wits about you. If they try to get crazy call the corporate office for budget...a little tough if you don’t have service thoughReviewed 10 Oct. 2018

Held Hostage at 3am in a foreign countryCons:Kayak sold me an Allianz insurance policy during booking. I brought the insurance confirmation and Budget refused to accept it and would not let me decline the "optional" insurance. The agent repeatedly told me that Kayak and Allianz had taken advantage of me and that the policy was not valid. It was 3am and I was with my wife and 2 tired children. They basically held us hostage, and wouldn't let us pick up the car until we had agreed to an additional $350 in "optional" insurance charges. I emailed Budget the next day to let them know I did not want the insurance. They didn't return my email until 9 days later with a form response. I called Budget customer service and they said they'd have to file a request with their vendor and that they were powerless to help. Then they tried to blame it on Kayak saying that maybe they had provided inaccurate information when I rented the car and that the insurance was required. If you enjoy a good bait-and-switch and dealing with crazy unhelpful agents, both abroad and in the US, then by all means rent from Budget.Reviewed 18 Jul. 2016

Out of cars; Need to wait an hour!Pros:Proximity to AirportCons:They were out of cars when first arrived. They initially said that I needed to go to another rental car despite making a reservation. It was only after an hour that a car arrived.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2016

Very misleading, I do not recommendPros:The car was reserved for us that’s about it.The lady was at the counter was really nice and tried to educate us more on how it all works. She felt bad for us I can tell because the charges we got were that extreme.Cons:I rented a car for my stay in Dominican Republic. What kayak said I was going to pay was not what I ended up paying at all. The insurance you buy through kayak does not work in all countries so I had to get local insurance which was very expensive. The drop off fee and taxes also changed once we were there, it ended up being so expensive. Not at all what I signed up for.Right before finishing up our pick they lost electricity. You would think budget would have a plan for that but they don’t. The poor employee had to start from scratch twice!Reviewed 30 Dec. 2017

Pros:The facility is very close to the terminal but the agent helpfully dropped me off in front using the same car I was returning.Cons:The car's air conditioner was not up to the task of cooling the car during the sunniest, hottest parts of the days--this was true over several hours while cruising at highway speeds. Also, the suspension was pretty worn out. The car bounced around a lot over rough road surfaces.Reviewed 3 Apr. 2019

Pros:very good car. good value for money. but pick up was a pain in the butt.Cons:it took me a long time to get my car because I had to call my credit card company to issue a letter that the credit card insurance cover the car. This is a new procedure. it was a very painful experience. I had to do a roaming call that cost me additional money.Reviewed 18 Aug. 2016
