Pros:Horrible... we had a reservation but were told that no cars were availableCons:No one called to check on us the next day or give us info on how to get a fecund for alternative transportation to our hotelReviewed Jun 4 2021

Pros:The staff member was EXCELLENT and the size of the vehicle suited our needs.Cons:#1 We had an hour wait in line (with a toddler) and no seating available. Then another hour wait in the hawaii sun with no seating available to take possession of the vehicle. Total of a 2 hour wait to get our vehicle. #2 The vehicle was FILTHY inside, numerous dings, scratches and paint chips to the exterior. The interior rooftop trim was hanging down and the transmission cut out numerous times during the week; causing a false sense of security when thinking the vehicle was parked in (P).Reviewed May 28 2021

Pros:Arrived and Budget had no cars despite us having a reservation. Talked to one person who finally received a car after waiting 5-1/2 hours!!! I called the Budget national number and they said that “ other reservation services like Kayak generate reservation numbers without actually having cars”Cons:I guess the lesson learned is NOT to reserve vehicles through a 3rd party and NOT deal with Budget who obviously did not even offer any sort of solution.Reviewed May 23 2021

Pros:Drop off was very efficientCons:Wait to get the car was excruciating. Surely you can have a better check in system. Also 2nd day my daughters wanted to be added as drivers. Process was even slower. When you are on holiday you don’t want to waste your time standing in lineups. The inside of the car was not cleaReviewed Jan 5 2020

Pros:Budget had a selection of cars over the holidays, whereas other car companies were sold out. The cost for our car was reasonable for the season: $770 for four days. Not cheap but we were relieved to find a car. The mileage was unbelievable. We drove all around the island for four days and only spent $40 on fuel. Pick up and drop off were easy.Cons:The price could’ve been a bit lower. Also we had to extend five hours and that raises the price over $200. That was painful.Reviewed Dec 27 2019

Cons:Long waits...Reviewed Nov 12 2019
review fromkayak
Cons:We waited in line for over an hour and the car we were given was trashed. Not only was it covered in dents and scratches, it still had clothes from someone else and it smelled horrible. We returned the car with a full tank but were charged for fuel along with multiple other miscellaneous charges. It’s impossible to get any type of explanation or customer service at all.Reviewed Oct 7 2019
