Associates must get on same page. Charged me for tank of gas when I was told to fill when turning in which I did. Now I’m out $89Reviewed May 23 2023

Pickup wait time was 1.5 hours. Car assignment smelt like puke, had windows down, and a note written on windier -strong order. Car play did not work.Reviewed May 22 2023

I feel like they gave us a car they wanted to send to another location because the car wasn’t in great shape. It also smelled like smoke. We had a miserable trip and I was hoping for a discount when I turned the car in, but all I got was a: why didn’t you tell them before you left the lot. I’m sorry for your experience.. we were in a hurry for an appointment or I would have demanded another car. This was by far the worst rental car I have ever had. We went from Chicago midway to ft Wayne Indiana. Horrible drive. Hope this note gets to somebody that will actually read this. Dale EasonReviewed May 9 2023

Charged me an extra $60 for them to fill the car with gas when I returned it full. Confirmed full by attendant on return, and listed as full on the receipt. Had to make two phone calls to get it correctedReviewed Apr 14 2023

Tried to book rental car through Kayak. Quoted a price of $151. AFTER confirmation, at payment, charged $258. Cancelled and charged $50 cancellation fee by Avis. Absurd and should be criminal business practices. Proceed with caution.Reviewed Apr 2 2023

We arrived to the counter to learn that there were no more cars available. At all. We waited forever and finally got a completely different car than we ordered: a gas-guzzling SUV instead of a midsized sedan that we ordered. Not ideal for a huge road trip. The car was very clean but quite dinged up. Everything was WAY more expensive than advertised. Overall I’m super disappointed with Budget. What a misnomer if a business name.Reviewed Mar 21 2023

Customer service in midway airport, worse ever. Never rent car again with budgetReviewed Jan 20 2023
review fromkayak
The drop off location and time was not what I selected in my search and didn’t realize until the night before that it had changed. Tried to call to change and it was closed, called the next morning and was informed it would be $659 to change to a closer drop off or to keep the car a couple extra hours. That is insanity. I waited over an hour in line to rent from these guys for pick up after my scheduled time, but was told if I was more than 20 min late it would be $659. What a joke.Reviewed Oct 16 2022

Everything was ok except how long it took to get our car. We waited in line for an hour. And we had to get to our destination asap. There was not enough staff for the amount of customers AND they had problems with having cars ready.Reviewed Sep 11 2022

Top tips for renting a car from Budget at Chicago Midway Airport

  • Book Budget car rentals at Chicago Midway Airport to avoid the hassles of getting public transport. Even though the airport features shuttles, buses, and taxis, you will have to wait in line for the next ride. You will also have to be on the right schedule if you do not wish to wait in line. Additionally, there are certain days like weekends and weather conditions, like rainy seasons where buses are unreliable. However, if you book Budget car rentals at Chicago Midway Airport, you escape all this and hop in the car as soon as you arrive. Car rentals help you avoid dragging luggage with you and provide door-to-door transport to any destination.
  • Renters at Chicago Midway Airport can find car rental services onsite. Once you land, follow signs to the luggage claim area and exit through glass doors near carousel number 3. From here, walk to the designated rental car shuttle bus stop and board a common bus for a four-minute ride to the car rental center. The shuttle buses operate 24 hours daily, departing the airport regularly. Once you get to the car rental facility, proceed to the Budget car rental counter.
