Pros:Pick up/ drop off was quick and easy.Cons:The car got a flat tire. I called the emergency roadside number and was told it would be at least 3 hours before somebody could get to the car. I put the donut on the car and spent the next 2 hours talking to customer service and getting rerouted to another person/number before I finally just gave up. Drove the car on the interstate with a donut on it over an hour back to the Budget office. Nobody at the desk so just left the keys in the drop box.Reviewed 21 Jul 2020

Pros:Didn’t really like anything, except the fact that the car didn’t break down.Cons:I had to get three different cars, before I found one that smelled OK. The first two have been smoked in, and when I went back for the third I got some lip from the guy at the desk. I got into the third car, it had been smoked in as well and had not been cleaned. This time they had to use some cherry air freshener, so It smelled like fruity cigarettes. How nice. Also, the car oil change light was on. They did comp my gas, which was nice, but I would rather have paid for my gas and not smelled cherry cigs.Reviewed 21 Jun 2020

Pros:Staff was very friendly upon pick-up but we had to wait a while because they were busy or slow filling out paperwork. There was no one there when we dropped off the car because of our early flight.Cons:The car looked like it had been through a demolition derby. My wife took the keys back to the counter but the guy said the damage was caused by a hurricane. I don’t think so! Hurricanes don’t cause big scratches in cars and major dents on the side. We took numerous pictures of the car with my iPad,Reviewed 19 May 2019

Pros:The car was nice, but the car they said they had ready for us looked dirty. So the guy made us upgrade and pay $20 more, because we told them we didn't want the car that they had for us because it was dirty And that it would take an hour to clean the other cars. So we paid the $20 to upgrade and the agent was still rude. He gave the woman before us a free upgrade, and so it just made us more aggravated so we took the car and leftCons:Poor customer service and car availability limitedReviewed 5 Nov 2016
