Phone customer service was terriblePros:I got different answers at different times I called. They would not call the location and would not let me call them and gave in correct info and were rude.Reviewed Aug 9 2016

Pros:Nice minivan but not an equivalent to a Chrysler T&C as advertised. Budget did take money off the rental for our grief.Cons:Immediately after leaving on the trip the tire light came on. The tire had a nail in it. We had to replace the tire after many calls to Budget. This added hours to the trip and cost a hotel room and a tire. When Budget was called they were of no help. After taking things into our own hands with AAA and Walmart, we were on our way. The van was filthy, with bloody tissues in the pockets, cupcake wrappers in the van. Where we picked it up in an airport parking garage it was dark and you could not see well enough to see these.Reviewed Aug 9 2016

6.0
Pros:Speed of transactionCons:Signs on return were blocked by Enterprise and return garage far too tight & poor lighting in Albany Airport. Tires were low profile and dry road performance style (New Jersey plates). For a Northeast winter with snow/ice...seemed like a poor choice by Budget unless they are baiting customers for a higher chance of accident.Reviewed Dec 19 2016
