Budget Rental company name should be changed to rent a wreckCons:The mini van that was sourced through Kayak and Budget as issued to me with no other choice available was a very beat up and dented all the way around the vehicle, tires bald and rims dented. I had to add air to 2 of the tire 3 times during my weekly rental. The brakes had half their stopping power creating very concerning situations. The air condition never brought the interior of the vehicle below 75 degrees. I complained to the Budget rental location at the time of pick up and they claimed that the damage happened recently. I asked them how can they explain the rust in the dents if it happened recently? I was charged $830. from Kayak and Budget for a vehicle that was dangerous to my family. They vehicle had no right being rented in their fleet. The Kayak website showed a nice white mini van. Kayak and Budget did the ultimate Bait and Switch and ripped me off at the same time! I'm writing a letter to Trip advisor and also to the Antigua Board of Tourism about Kayaks and Budgets deceptive vehicle marketing. Should you require any additional information please feel free to call me (267) 738-7074 or Jamesrbell123@aol.com. Thanks Jim BellReviewed 7 Aug. 2017

Cons:We booked a rental car with Budget, when going to pick up the car they told us they didnt have any car for us. they had our reservation, but no car! We were told that this do happen and that they in those cases handed us over to Hertz instead. At Hertz we had to argue that we would have the same deal, as their cheapest car was gonna be $10 more expensive than the deal we had confirmed with Budget. This is absolutely ridiculous. We book a car, had a confirmation, then they dont actually have the car, ship us over to someone else and we have to pay a much more expensive price! At Hertz we told them that the confirmation we had stated $25 per day, so the lady was going to clear it with the manager as this was lower than what their standard prices. The representative came back after a few minutes and told us that they could do the $25 for us, as she had cleared it with her manager. Foolishly of us, we did not double check this! They had a holding of $500 on our card, and when we asked what the total was we were told that it would be deducted from the $500 and the rest was going to be released again. We asked twice about the total and she did not tell us. We later realised that she had put $35 per day, instead of the $25 as verbally agreed, so obviously this was the reason why she didnt tell us the total! We feel very cheated by the behavior of both Budget who didn't uphold the confirmation that they had a car for us and by the representative at Hertz who fully knew what she was doing!!Reviewed 28 Nov. 2019

Cons:This place is a small parking lot owned by local mechanic. All cars are old and in terrible condition. I’ve had to return two cars as both had mechanical issues. Second car tire got flat over night after one day use. Don’t expect to see any real Budget quality I went to other rental Thrifty and got a perfect car for the rest of my trip. STAY AWAY from Budget on Antigua island!!!Reviewed 5 Apr. 2021

Cons:First car offered had over 150,000 Km and was filthy inside. Both the AC and the power windows didn’t work. They agreed to give us another car which we accepted, but that one too had a broken passengers side power mirror whose motor was constantly running.Reviewed 16 May 2021

Pros:The staff was awesome!!! Very friendly.Cons:Maybe a map around Antigua and better tires on the car we rented. For the type of terrain we were driving in the tires were weak. It was scary to think we could have gotten a flat at any moment not really knowing where things were located. But overall adventurous and great little car for our trip!Reviewed 18 May 2021

Island adventurePros:Easy going, Friendly staff- easy airport drop off. Good island vehicle, no problems of any kind. Renting a car in Antigua is a different experience than renting in the USA. Just slow down and roll with it on 'Island Time'. I recommend taking the full insurance. Cost an additional $20. usd per day but you don't want to be dealing with vehicle damage in the Islands.Cons:Tires a bit worn but not bad for island vehicle. The car was fine, it's the roads that are in tough shape.Reviewed 11 Dec. 2016

Pros:Check in quick People pleasantCons:Car was a barely running wreck. No shocks. . Lights broken. Hub caps tied on. I understand driving there is challenging but it should be related when booking that your car is going to be a second rate vehicleReviewed 19 Mar. 2018
