Charged for insurance twiceReviewed Jan 13 2024
review fromkayak
I feel scammed /cheated. The price that I have booked during online is totally different when I pay in on the spot. The charges is way higher than expected and it is almost double as what I have booked online. There are additional different types of tax in the payment and the taxes prices is totally different when I book online. The customer service doesn’t allow me to negotiate and he said it is a must to pay. I have no choice because I need the car in hurry. I’m asking for refund for those additional charges.Reviewed Nov 14 2023

This location did not have a car available for us upon arrival and the staff was extremely rude. We were left stranded in Buffalo 80 miles from our destination. Luckily there was a Lyft driver available at 1am but it cost $160 to get to our destination. This will be the last time I do business with Kayak or budget car rentals.Reviewed Oct 15 2022
review fromkayak
The wait was over 1.5 hours to get to the counter and another hour wait for a car. Customer service was great but your company needs to hire more people. Sad.Reviewed Sep 12 2022

Cons:Rented a pick up truck to do some moving, wasn’t available. They gave me a small suv with fresh cigarette smell, had to go back in and get a third rental at the airport. By then there was a long line.Reviewed May 9 2021
