There needs to be clear upfront information on deposit amounts and the fact a credit cannot be taken over the phone. Rented a car for my son online. They would not allow me to pay the full price online. When he went to pick up the car. They wouldn't take my card over the phone. A very bad situation. Could have left him stranded at the airport.Reviewed Sep 16 2023

review fromkayak
Pickup was rough. Budget counter was shutdown, Avis rep was nice, but it took three trips back and forth to the garage just to get a car as they didn’t have what we reserved nearly making us late for our appt elsewhere. Upcharges galore for adding a driver and toll pass meant it was almost double the quoted rate, the car was too small and dirty, and had issues. Drop off went smooth and that rep was nice, but after renting from Enterprise for years and getting upgrades and great customer service, I’ll never rent from Budget again.Reviewed May 29 2023

I returned the van 2 hours before it was due back. Their rep must not have filed the paperwork properly because Budget is still asking me to return the vehicle - 2 weeks later. My credit card company declined all the charges Budget processed against me and I had to get a new card due to perceived Fraud on Budget's end. What the HellReviewed May 17 2023

We arrived at the Budget pick-up location on May 12 at DFW with a reservation only to be greeted by three-hour (at least) wait in line! Absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable.Reviewed May 15 2023

Reasonable one way rentalReviewed May 14 2023
review fromkayak
The pickup process at the Budget counter was very crowded and slow at DFW. Some people were encouraged to exit the Budget line and go to Avis but the service people at Avis didn't know that, so only one Budget terminal was available for use. Then after waiting in line at the Avis counter, you had to go to another line in the pickup lot and wait for your car there to be brought out to you. So that line was even longer because Avis and Budget use the same employees and there were not enough cars available.. Basically, a lot of waiting and inefficiency.Reviewed Apr 19 2023

Exceptionally helpful agent. Offered unsolicited accurate advice regarding toll roads and pre-payment options. Based on his comments, safely decided no need for toll roads or pre-payment.Reviewed Apr 15 2023
review fromkayak
Booked on Kayak, arrived at airport and was told they were sold out and didn’t have the vehicle I booked. I was quoted a little over $800 on kayak and when they eventually “found” me a Suburban which I had booked and was told they didn’t have at first, it ended up costing me $1481. I learned to never book 3rd party and never use budget againReviewed Apr 15 2023
