Pros:Staff and cleanliness and accessibilityCons:Thought it was a little expensive but in hindsight I think it was the fact that Louisiana state tax is 25% so that amped up the price. Good car overall. It may need an oil change and the transmission feels weird in lower RPMsReviewed Jul 18 2019

False advertising at time of reservation.Cons:I made a reservation for a car from Budget more than two weeks in advance. I did this because I have used budget almost exclusively in the past and I knew using a debit card would be no.problem as I had plenty of money In the bank for a 'hold' to be made on some funds until.the car was turned in. Nothing on the site where I reservation was any change of policy regarding debit cards. Unfortunately when my Uber off at the pickup location they told me.they had to run my card for a credit check as I was using a debit card. I had no problem with this as the last time i.cbecked my score was well over 700. Strangely however I was declined. I went 1/2 mile.down.the street and rented from Enterprise with no issues whatsoever. I wonder if I was sent away simply because.the Canal Street location in NOLA had no cars available? They were very clear about the fact that they had no cars and there would be a wait. I feel that perhaps I was sent away not because of a credit denial but simply to help clear the waiting area. Going forward I'm sure you can understand.why.i.will be using Enterprise....or pretty much anyone else...other than Budget. I work in the vacation industry for a major cruise liine and am often asked about what to do and who to do it with when in port. I certainly won't be able to.recommend Budget for car rental after my last experience. Previously Budget was where i sent everybody who asked.because of my past great experiences.Reviewed May 19 2017
