Car was not in parking space so I had to go back to the counter to get a different car. They handled it quickly and upgraded the car.Reviewed 14 Jun. 2024

The line was over an hour and a half long to pick up my car. They know ahead of time how many reservations they have and were ill prepared. The first agent I worked with was rude, condescending, and tried more than once to rush me into entering my credit card and accept things I clearly told him I didn’t want like paying in advance for tolls and gas. I then waited an additional half hour for a manager who checked me out. The manager was fine to work with.Reviewed 1 May 2024

Everything was perfect. The fact that they were right at the airport was very convenient in both the renting and returning.Reviewed 10 Apr. 2024

Pickup wasn’t great. The service was super slow, the agent had no sense of urgency with a line of people waiting to pick up cars. The car itself was filthy when we got in. Crumbs, juice stains, and liquid in the cupholders. Drop off was great. The staff was super nice (different airport than pickup).Reviewed 8 Apr. 2024

When I arrived at the Budget counter and learned there was a two hour wait to speak to anyone I walked next door to a competitor and rented car without a reservation in 10 minutes. Budget’s complete indifference to their customers was very sad. I will never book with Budget again.Reviewed 26 Mar. 2024

Terrible. I had to take an Uber to get three and they told me they gave my rental away because of the demand in town from a Billy Joel concert. I had to pay for an Uber back to my hotel and lost $80 paying for Uber to get there and back.Reviewed 2 Mar. 2024

The reservation line in the Tampa airport was more than 100 people long and not moving. The desk appeared to be understaffed. We ended up cancelling our reservation and booking with Alamo which took barely anytime at all.Reviewed 24 Feb. 2024

The customer service representative at the pick up desk was high on Marijuana when I arrived to pick up the vehicle. He struggled to concentrate on the task and hand. The car was the incorrect type. I booked a regular car and they put me in a "premium" Cadillac SUV. There weren't any other vehicles and I needed the vehicle for a one way trip. Overall, I won't use Budget going forward.Reviewed 28 Jan. 2024
