Poor customer service
Pros: Price wasn't bad. Attitude from attendant was uncalled for.
Cons: When picking up. We were late since our flight was delayed. She talked to me like I had committed a crime for being late. Once I denied the insurance since mine covers me, she again gave me an attitude. I inspected the car for damage in an unlit parking lot with the flashlight on my phone. Apparently customer service is not a priority here. After returning the form I sent off with an attitude filled 'good luck' not a thank you.

14 Jan 2016
Terrible
Pros: The Rep refused to rent the car to me because I didn't have a personal car insurance even when I opted to purchase the company's car insurance and I had rented twice before from same company. He was just a racist pig. Kayak was to blame for not having a telephone number to call to report Customer complaints

Meh...
Pros: The price
Cons: The "agent" at the location could have cared less about any problems or concerns you had. When I mentioned the stains all over the fabric of the car, no reponse, when I asked if they even tried to clean the vehicle, no response. He didn't really know company policy when asked about insurance, tolls or adding a second driver to the vehicle. Also they charged triple the rental amount as a "deposit" which there is no mention of in the rental agreement. When I asked the agent about it, same response, meh

Poor Drop Off
Cons: When we arrived to drop the car, we were able to locate the parking spaces for drop off, however, there was no attendant to turn the car over to. We went inside and found a long line of people at the counter that were renting cars. We needed to catch our flight so we went to another rental car desk (Hertz maybe) that had a shorter line and they were helpful in recording our mileage and taking our keys so that we could leave. The drop off procedure needs to be evaluated with the outbound flight customers in mind.

Never using Budget again!
Pros: NOTHING!
Cons: Budget delayed checking in the car by 24 hours charging us a $10 late fee and then said we didn't fill up the car when our contract said 3/4 and was 2 gallons shy of full but charged us $45 anyways. Sanford airport staff unpleasant and not willing to own up to their error. Will never use Budget again!

Will NEVER rent from Budget again

problem with drop off
Pros: Pickup onsite was very easy, staff were professional and pleasant.
Cons: We arrived very early at the aiport otday ot return our vehicle (Sanford Fl airport) the signage was good to direct us to garage area but signage was very poor in garage. I realize this was very early before 6am so staff may not have been on. I then walked back to the rental car counters to leave my keys and paperwork. No one was at any of the ocutners, I did finally find the drop box but it was on a side wall next ot the offices. A sign in the drop off area with directions and a sign on the counter as to what to do would have been very helpful. Thank you Andre Cushing andre@andrecushing.com

The car was dangerous with the governor when tryin
Cons: The car was dangerous with the governor when trying to pass. The radio old beep and turn down . Obviously for it were in a state where the speed limit was 55, this would be ok. I could see a future lawsuit from someone who ends up in an accident because of this governor.

Best ever rental car experience
Pros: Our trip plans changed due to an illness in the family and we had to fend for ourselves instead of relying on extended family for transportation. I tried to modify an Enterprise reservation to start earlier, but they "had no cars." I found a good deal in a few seconds thanks to the Kayak app. I took the hotel shuttle to the airport and completed the reservation during the ride. The paperwork was ready when I walked in and I was given an upgrade. I chose a beautiful car with less than 3K miles on it. Having this car made the whole trip easier. When returning to the airport, the agent took us back to the terminal entrance to save us a short walk with our bags. It was fast friendly and exceeded my expectations in every way.

24 Sep 2016
Pros: Service was fast, friendly and efficient at pick up and equally so for drop off. Price was extremely fair for the vehicle and car had absolitely no issues...clean with a full tank of gas. Good experience overall!
Cons: Wish there was a way to get my phone on the dash since I was using GPS so much... bit nothing I expect from a rental. All in all, can't think of a negative!

Not happy
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: They wanted to charge me more than my reservation stated and so I asked the guy if there would be any cancellation fee if I cancelled now and he said no. So I cancelled it and made a new reservation at Enterprise and Alamo still charged my credit card.

26 Sep 2016
Pros: Agent at pickup did a great job.
Cons: I was a smidgen off of full at return and was charged $9.99 per gallon. 2 gallons total. I take ownership that it wasn't 100% full, but feel their policy of $9.99 per gallon is a bit high.

Cons: No one to check car in at MCO. Left after 20 minutes wasted waiting. Received wildly erroneous bill charging $120 more than contract including $100 for fuel service when I had just refueled. Waited online for customer service before line went dead. Not the first time we have had problems with Dollar/Thrifty in Orlando. Avoid, Avoid

Good value, but slow service
Pros: The car (Nissan Juke) was comfortable and easy to drive. The value of the rental was pretty good.
Cons: When we picked up the car, there were maybe 4 or 5 customers before us and it took nearly an hour to be waited on. There were 2 clerks, but only one was actually waiting on customers - not clear what the other guy was doing. Also, as per usual, they try and scare you into buying additional insurance and some toll package - both are a ripoff. We're covered by our credit card company and our car insurance. For the tolls, they accept cash, so it was fine.

Misleading sale
Pros: Price was good, providing there are no surprises yet to come.
Cons: Sold as Sanford Orlando Airport. Pickup was actually well offsite. Had to pay a taxi $25+ for the 5 of us to location. Had to pay $5 extra to drop at airport. No attendants of any kind at drop off. We just left the keys, at the direction of agents at other rental agency counters, who said "Oh, you're ok". Bizarre first rental thru Kayak as well as through Hertz. I doubt I will do either again.

Deceptive
Pros: The counter attendant threw on a charge for gas option. This was slied over and not explained nor did we agree to it. We try to notice this company again. They say they will refund the money as a courtesy. There are plenty of places to rent a car, no need for doing business with people that are deliberately deceptive.

Pros: Ken was amazing! He made the process so painless and was extremely helpful. I have rented a lot of cars from many different companies and he is by far the best employee I have ever worked with. The price was a little expensive but the car was pretty new and nice.
Cons: Both the Thrifty and Dollar counters were combined and so the wait was extremely long.
