Easy for the most part, and straightforwardPros:Car was clean, ready to go, and the pick up and drop off was easyCons:Car had a dent on it that I noticed after I picked it up, and there wasn't anybody to check for damage when I picked up the car nor was this ever mentioned. Granted, I should have looked when I picked up the car, but I'm hoping that this dent isn't pinned on me.Reviewed Sep 21 2016

Pros:Pick up was easy, fast and staff was friendly.Cons:Drop off at the Asheville airport was confusing. The signs to lead you to the rental drop off are confusing. When I found the drop off there was no staff and no return box for the keys and paperwork. I had to walk to the terminal and find the Budget counter to drop off keys and paperwork.Reviewed Sep 24 2019

Pros:The staff was good. Drop off was easy.Cons:Finding drop off location is not easy if you're not from the local area. Also not sure an 'upgrade' from a compact to a pick up truck is actually an upgradeReviewed Jul 28 2019

SufficientPros:Nice car. Polite, professional agent at pick-up.Cons:Lack of clarity about returning car after hours and when "after hours" started. Agent stayed on lengthy phone call rather than offering to accept keys and let me go.Reviewed Sep 15 2018

Budget Rental UVA Move InPros:Toyota Siena was very roomy, easy to adjust, and loved the backup screen feature in super crowded college move-in environmentCons:Not really Budget's fault, but the drop off at Charlottesville Airport is geared for folks flying in and out of area, so had no place to park car, and returning keys to Airport terminal was not clearly markedReviewed Aug 19 2017

Excellent!Pros:Mega fast service (<5mins out the door) with a really sporty, cool car. Drop-off was simple and on your way quickly! Thanks soooo much Budget and the staff at CHO (C-ville).Cons:Nothing!Reviewed Apr 18 2017
review fromkayak
Pros:Not being pressured to get a bunch of extrasCons:Employee was late to the pick up desk, when not opening until 8 am was already later than I would have liked (I had to drive to Boston that day)Reviewed Nov 29 2017
review fromkayak
Cons:Everything was fine but for the fact that the car smelled like smoke with a deodorizer trying to cover it up. The car was not clean. I tried to call Budget to notify them so I would not be billed for the problem as it pre-existed my rental, but I had to go through multiple call directories and it eventually dropped me.Reviewed Jul 23 2018
review fromkayak
Cons:Desk agent was painfully unhelpful. I was the only person at the counter and waited 45 minutes for a car.Reviewed Nov 4 2018
review fromkayak
Pros:Super easy - was even able to modify my pick up/drop off time online! :)Reviewed Nov 8 2018
