The drop off signage needs additional work as it was very difficult to figure out where to pull in our car and the person checking in early in the morning was very unprofessional to us as we didn't know where to put the car, seems you didn't want to walk the extra 50 ft to get the carReviewed Aug 23 2022

not staffed adequately. i booked through a third party and when asking for courtesy extension of a couple of hours due to highway traffice accident, they told me i had to book an extra day. on top of that, there was an additional fee to extend my reservation since it was more than 6 hours. i will never book with budget again.Reviewed Jun 24 2021

Pros:Car was new and clean only 37 miles on it.Cons:Staff was horrible. Pre ordered online with a quoted price of $59.00 for a pickup time of 6:30pm for a mid size car at the Columbus airport. Needed to drive to Dayton airport. Had selected an 8:30 pm drop off the same day which it's only an hour drive. There was only one person to help the line of people. As I'm waiting a lady came back into the lobby and asked if it was normal to be still waiting for her car (half hour she said). The representative did not seem phased or concerned. Just said that it would be coming. For my turn she didn't smile at all. Didn't greet me at all; just asked for I.d. Didn't tell me what was available or ask if I would like this car over that. Just ran through the available extra coverage. I opted for the no filling of gas because I was short on time and didn't want to bother finding a gas station near the drop off airport. Flat fee of $15 if under 75 miles. Rep told me to wait in the garage and they would bring car around. The lady waiting for her car is still there. So are 4 other customers. The drivers just drive a car down turn on flashers and run away. Nobody out there to tell you if this is your car or not. My paperwork did not have a licence plate on it to verify the car. I had to stop on of the drivers before he ran away to ask how to distinguish which car is for whom. Still waiting for my car at 7:20 I had to go back to the rep and question about my drop off time of 8:30 in Dayton. Will they charge me? She just changed time to 11:00. No apologies for the wait. Mind you I pre ordered the car online. Finally got car and paperwork said 3 miles on odometer. I wrote that it was 37 and tried to get gate keeper to initial or write it down he just said you have unlimited miles your alright. I was like ok. Forgetting about the mileage on fuel refilling. No directions on where to leave car in the Dayton drop off area. No signage. Of course it turn out to be 77 miles and did not give me a break on that from the representative in the Dayton airport. "It's a contract." Ended up paying over $90.00 for an hours drive after all the fees and taxes. No help from him with directions to where short term parking was in relation to their garage area. In short: PRICE FOR VALUE SUCKED CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKEDReviewed Aug 19 2020
