Pros:Promptness of service, quality of vehicle, ease of pickup.Cons:Low tire pressure warning lights were on from the start. I came back to have them addressed. The pressure was checked but the warning lights stayed on. I was told that that often happens until the tires heat up. Sure enough, the lights did go off in a while, but came on again and stayed on during other drives. It turns out one tire had dropped from 35 psi to 20. I re-inflated it but didn't feel safe driving the car, so I swapped it for another at the Atlanta airport rental car center. Also the car did have some dirt/stains on the seats and rear doors that i discovered and wiped off myself.Reviewed Mar 8 2017

Cons:The local Budget downtown Charleston is run and owned privately. The sevice was unprofessional. They tried to charge us more than the kayak deal, when I showed them my price from the web, the rep explained that I am booking 20 minutes earlier and that it was a different deal. The rep told us the car had a full tank (which was in the paperwork) when we started driving we realized it was only 1/4 full... The car was terrible- part of the spoiler (in the front) started dragging on the freeway. We stopped and PAID to have it fixed in order to be able to continue our trip. DONOT use this place.Reviewed Aug 5 2017

Pros:Drop off was very easy.Cons:Staff member at pickup was not very friendly or transparent with fees. I had to ask what I was being charged multiple times in order to decline certain coverage. The car itself was not a good value. The vehicle was not very clean (found fake nail in backseat, car was sandy).Reviewed Jun 22 2020
