Terrible. I recommend avoiding Budget in Baltimore. They first promised a car at noon from a downtown Baltimore location. When I arrived to pick it up, they told me my car wasn’t ready but maybe would be in an hour. An hour later, still no car, and the downtown location was closing at 2. They suggested I contact Budget and change the pickup to the airport, which I did. The person I talked to changed my reservation and promised a confirming email. I never got the email and when I arrived at the airport location, the line there was about 10 long and wasn’t moving. Eventually , I got a car at about 330 pm.Reviewed Jul 17 2024

I was charged for an upgrade that I didn’t request and the vehicle was very underwhelming. The interior was dirty and the outside of the vehicle was riddled with scratches.Reviewed Jul 17 2024

I was so thankful to book a low cost, last minute rental. However, I was redirected from the budget line to the Avis line, there was one employee which took 45 minutes to get to the one employee there. That’s unfortunate but understandable. Regrettably, I was then redirected to the “fastbreak” location downstairs which had an additional 45 MINUTE wait. Signage next to the sign mentioning going to Avis would be helpful to avoid much of this situation in the future.Reviewed Jul 17 2024
