The manager at the front Desk argued with me and insisted on trying to overcharge me $100 more for my car rental even after showing him what my quote was. I had to strongly express my concern and to get my point across Very rude and unprofessional.Reviewed Nov 6 2023

Pros:The staff was friendly and fast with processing the rental.Cons:The Budget rental counter is not open at BMI. You are directed to Avis rental and the counter service there didn’t open for fifteen minutes.Reviewed May 26 2021

Cons:The experience started pretty rough. There was only one guy working so he ended up being about 45 minutes late opening. Pretty sure he was checking cars, mileage, fuel etc. However myself along with five other customers were not aware of this until later. Two were quite upset, I was just frustrated from waiting so long.Reviewed Sep 9 2020

Parking Lot Employee Needs Further TrainingPros:It's a small, regional airport, so there was no line when checking in and returning. About 15 minutes after returning the vehicle, I realized that I had left a jacket in the back seat of the car. The employee was able to give me a special remote (no key attached) in order to go back to the vehicle to get it out of the car. Responsive to my needs - see the what I didn't like summary.Cons:I was told the car was in a particular spot in the parking lot; however, after searching around, I ended up finding the car still parked in the "return" area. The car still had some trash in it from the previous renter, which I had to clean up. Upon starting the vehicle, I found that the gas tank was at 3/8 of a tank only, but the tank should have been full. I had to go back into the airport to the Budget (Avis) counter where the employee walked outside with me and directed another employee (a young man working in the parking lot area) to follow me to a gas station so he could fill the tank for me. The counter employee commented that someone was not doing their job and it shouldn't be that hard. Obviously, the car had not been "processed" properly upon being returned from the previous renter, which cost me about 30 extra minutes. Luckily, there were no mechanical issues with the car - I had no further problems.Reviewed Sep 25 2017

Best Price but nothing fancyPros:Very affordable. Easy to book. Fast check in and drop off. Very friendly staff (Avis counter). Didn't pressure me on add-ons. Found someone's beef jerky bag between the seats. Still had some left so bonus for me.Cons:Had to check in at Avis counter but no big deal. Car was a little older but drove fine and hey, I was looking for the cheapest deal around.Reviewed Sep 8 2016

Pros:People at counter were nice.Cons:The car was the worst I've rented in years. Very uncomfortable and couldn't adjust seats. A/C was mediocre. Car had big burn in seat and smelled strongly of disinfectant. Also, didn't tell me that I could only extend my previous car certain # of times plus the $10 admin fee per day of extension, so had to drive 40 miles 1-way to turn in my decent car and pick up this disaster.Reviewed Jul 4 2016
