Cons:Was not aware I needed to have a credit card to pick up car. I had to settle for another company and pay more than double to rent a vehicle! I was not happy.Reviewed 26 Jan 2021

Cons:Lots of additional fees added up to way more than expected, in the end it totalled way way more than the advertised rate. Def wasn't for those on a budget. They automatically charged me for a full tank when I brought it back with a bit more than half a tank and I had to bring it to their attention and ask for a refund. Had I not gone into the office because the person in the lot's machine was broken, I would have been overcharged. I also had to double check the bill. Felt like an attempt to squeeze even more out of me.Reviewed 2 Feb 2016

Don't even bother trying to call them - they'll nePros:Excellent in-person customer service and great car!!!Cons:I had called many times to try to extend my rental another day and no one ever answered the phone or called me back. And don't forget your personal keys on your rental keychain! I made this mistake and called over 15 times and no one ever answered the phone, and I left multiple voice messages and after a week no one ever called me back! Thank goodness I was local so I drove to the location and they had my keys in a big bag of "lost" keys. I asked if they EVER call people back when they receive voicemails and they just said they're busy. So basically if I wasn't able to pick them up I would have never gotten my keys back! This customer service issue should be addressed because this is an airport rental location meaning most people who rent from here would never get their keys back if they forgot them on their rental car keychain. When I called the general customer service number they said all I could do was submit a complaint online.Reviewed 20 Mar 2017

Pros:Super easy to pick up with Fast Break. Avoided long lines to get a car. Car was clean and easy to find.Cons:They could have another person working the check out line when you’re leaving with the car. There was one person working and there were 7 cars in line trying to leave.Reviewed 6 Dec 2020

Quick returnPros:Long Beach airport is so fast for rental cars, Easy in and out.Cons:I didn't like that kayak didn't allow me to book the car for a return on Easter. I could only choose to return it on Monday. It wasn't an option. When I got to the Budget return office, I mentioned it to the budget people who told me I could have returned it on Easter even if they were closed by just dropping it off with the keys in the mail box. So I ended up paying for an extra day, even though i didn't need it, returned it the next morning and didn't use it. Had I known that or had the option to return it on Easter when I got home, not only it would it saved me half the rental cost, but it would have saved me another trip to the airport the next day,Reviewed 3 Apr 2018

Don’t waste your timePros:Staff was okCons:I thought I was getting a great rate for a great car. When I arrived they supposedly didn’t have anything at all for the rate I purchased and i was forced into a car half the size and half the value I wasn’t promised. They didn’t try to work with me or give me any other options. Will not rent from Long Beach budget again.Reviewed 29 Aug 2018

Pros:Car interior was fairly clean.Cons:They didn't have a vehicle available for my reservation. I was 30 min early, but they didn't have anything coming back for at least 30 min, plus whatever time they would require to clean the vehicle. I was told that I would have to be more punctual! This was at an airport location. Flights are early or late all the time. I understand that operating lean helps keeps costs down, but at an airport, they need to make sure they have inventory on hand. I ended up taking a more expensive vehicle because who knows if the other customer would turn their car in on time and after traveling, I don't want to be sitting around for another 45+ minutes.Reviewed 20 Mar 2018

Pros:Front desk staff was obnoxious. Attempting to up-sell us on every aspect they could. Continuing to push for it after we declined. They also required a separate credit card for my wife who was the secondary driver. I’ve never experienced this with another rental agency. Stick with Alamo.Cons:Literally, everything. Budget felt like a very low-raw experience across the board compared to our normal agency, Alamo. I would not rent with Budget againReviewed 24 Mar 2019
