The car had some light damage from a previous customer, would have been nice if it didn’t. Other than that all was good, thanks.Reviewed Aug 7 2022

The car return in Phoenix started ok but ended badly. There were signs about no personal vehicles allowed down in the car return lot, but I was traveling with two small birds and it was triple digits so I asked the gentleman working at budget if he would allow my brother to drive down and pick me up so I didn’t have to walk to him, he said that would be fine. So as I’m transferring my things into my brothers car the middle-age woman also working at budget started yelling at me and my brother about no personal vehicles, I tried to explain to her that her coworker gave me permission but she cut me off and continued yelling. Meanwhile my two small parrots that just traveled in the car for 18 hours are terrified. I understand there are rules for a reason, but her coworker was the one that gave me permission so if she should be mad at anyone she should go talk to him not yell at me, my family member and scare my pets, that was completely unprofessional.Reviewed Jul 17 2022

When I arrived to pick up my car no one was there to help. The after hours number was disconnected. I ended up having to cancel my reservation and booking on the fly with Hertz who had people working at their counter.Reviewed Jun 6 2022

Counter doesn’t open til 7 but our red eye flight arrived earlier so we had to wait. There was a sign that said to go to the Hertz counter instead. When Hertz finally opened the employee said to go back to the Dollar counter where there was already a separate line. All in all we waited 1.5 hrs to get a car. The lady at the Dollar was a lot nicer than the one at Hertz though. Car was fine. Check out and return was easyReviewed May 31 2022

The car smelled of marijuana no one checked the car before we took it to make sure that there is no issues when we were coming back from Laredo and being stopped at the area to check your papers and documents the dog went crazy they wanted to rip open the truck because They thought we had marijuana in it and it was not good at all we are very very disappointed we don’t smoke at all . the smell we thought would go out of the car after a little while it did not .the dogs went crazy and we had to explain to him that it was a rental and it smelled like this when we we picked it up and that we believe that only that we are older and good at speaking to people and our pleading with him not to rip the car and our Luggage that we were not held up in the car because if not we would’ve had been there for hours and missed our flight if they had done the search they request .it was very disappointing the cleanliness of that vehicle and very disappointing that when we mentioned to the boy that young man that there was some issues with the car and he said to just take photos this isn’t good enough these vehicles need to be checked before they go out the marijuana smell was awful and it wasn’t until after we got on the highway that we realized it that bad and we were already late for an appointment so we did not turn back This could have been much worst and if we would have been 25 instead of 65 those officers would have not been so kind Rhonda 905 269 7516Reviewed May 21 2022

Fuel surcharges when I put gas in at the airport gas station. Somehow they calculated that I turned in the car with 0.7 less gallons that I left with. With the fuel surcharge and price per gallon, it was a $17 charge for less than a gallon of fuel. And how did they accurately measure that..Reviewed May 10 2022

The car wasn't very clean inside or out. The staff were a little rude when they were having trouble with my card. The manager had the audacity to ask if I had enough money in my account.Reviewed May 3 2022

After waiting in line for an hour I go to the car. The gas tank is below 3/4, the car did not have a toll pass, which I had paid for and the car was a mess with medical trash from the previous occupants.Reviewed May 3 2022
