Cons:waited in line for 1.5 hours for pick up. Only two people working. When I got to the counter the clerk was incredibly quick and apologetic for the wait but there should have been more people on staff to help.Reviewed Aug 10 2020

Excessive feesPros:Car was fine.Cons:Attempted to upsell from economy car for extra $10/day but then I got a midsize car anyway without charging more. Initial cost was of $300 for 2 days seemed expensive to start and then an additional $200 in fees made it seem really expensive. The extra fees were not for additional services or coverage and could/should have been included in the initial cost estimate. It felt like I was getting duped after a point where I had the option to make another choice. Had I known the $300 was actually going to be $500 I would have looked elsewhere and I probably won't use budget/avis again because of that.Reviewed Jul 17 2017

Cons:We had a family Medical Emergency (father had to be airlifted from Marthas Vineyard Hospital to Boston for emergency surgery) and had to drop off our rental car at Oak Bluffs Marthas Vineyard instead of Hyanis Port. Called Corporate and they still charged me $500+ for the changed location fee. Unexceptable in my book to charge this fee for a family emergency...... Brian Boyt 310-308-0755Reviewed Aug 30 2020

Terrible ServicePros:Nothing.Cons:Thought reservation was at the airport and realized the mistake during check in. The counter rep stopped and told me to go downtown (20 min) so not a big deal. They gave me a receipt showing no charges were made. After going downtown they told me the reservation was canceled at the airport and there was NOTHING they could do and I had to contact Hotwire. Contacted Hotwire and after a 45 minute wait they told me to contact Budget corporate. I called Budget (Budget rep in downtown would not help) and after another 30 minutes they told me to call Hotwire back. I was caught in a loop. Budget said it MAYBE could be resolved by going back to the airport as they could not contact them directly. How can a company not be able to contact their network in the same city? At the end another in my travel group reserved a car and we abandoned this reservation since after 2 hours nothing came of trying to salvage this one. Ruined our Boston plans for the morning and our new reservation cost double since it was day of.Reviewed May 28 2018

Cons:During kayak booking process, I booked a car from Logan airport (this was confirmed on my kayak app after check out). Then, when confirmation email came through, my car was actually reserved in Lynn MA (a 30 minute drive away). The entirely wrong location was booked.Reviewed Sep 21 2020

Wrong location, but everything else was right!Pros:Even though I accidentally booked the car for downtown rather than the airport location, Budget management worked to honor my price at the airport. When I got to my assigned car, someone else was already in it, so the attendant upgraded my car to a luxury level for free. Because I already had a special reservation situation, exiting the garage did require calling a manager and waiting about 15 minutes rather than the standard "roll-through" procedure, but that was a small price to pay for the accommodating and friendly service I had already received at Budget-Logan. Would totally use again!Reviewed May 23 2017

Very poor experience - would not recommend to a friendCons:- reps were unfriendly as I arrived to office. They were upset that I arrived so near to their closing time; I had to argue to get hem to serve me (otherwise I would've been stranded in town for the night) - there was no walk through before I got in the car; maybe because they were upset with me from the beginning, but no one walked to me to my car to inspect it for damage, tell me what to do about gas / tolls etc. - car was not cleaned when we picked up. Filled with old trash from previous user. Barely any gas in the tank. - finally, I wasn't told there were no after hours drop offs. I ended up having to extend my rental into the next day (for an additional $60+)Reviewed Oct 10 2017
