Pickup and Dropoff needs to be fixed
Pros: Clean and well maintained car.
Cons: Tried to substitute a Prius for the full Size car I reserved!! Had to pick up car through Avis, even though I rented from Budget and am a FastBreak member. No Drop box for Budget at terminal!!!

Pros: It was unclear where to pickup the car. It was not at the airport, but a cab ride away. By the time I got there it was closed. Only the kindness of the staff there allowed me to get a car after they had closed the office.

Wrong till the end!
Cons: The drop off time was 2pm and because we had to change which credit card the purchase went on because they wouldn't accept the right one in Colorado... We got to the right counter at 2:31 a day early, where the lady at the counter informed us that we would be charged $249 for the hour even thought they have a 29min grace period and we missed that by 2min... My husband has managed to pack the van, despite having a passenger van and having to move seats around and play Tetris to get almost everything in. Then did his best to travel almost 2k miles from Colorado to Virginia and did it all in two and a half days to find out we were 2min late to not be charged was enough to bring me to tears! After talking to the last at the counter, getting shuffled around customer service and billing we got a whole 100 back of the 249. We will never rent from Budget again. I am a business owner myself and that is no way to do business!

Cons: I was charged more than I was quoted and when I brought it up I was told the quote was wrong. Probably not going to use kayak or budget again any time soon.

Pros: Pick up and drop off okay.
Cons: The cost when we booked was quoted $200.00 lower (797.26) than what we actually paid at the counter (983.17). There were taxes and fees that were added that we were not made aware of or anticipated. Naturally I was not happy. We had budgeted the quoted amount and needed to take it from somewhere else in our vacation budget. In my past experience renting vehicles, this has never happened. I paid what I was quoted. We were also expecting a full size SUV with trunk space. It was full size, but no trunk space. Luggage and 6 passengers, we barely fit and had to hold suitcases for our hour and a half commute to our destination. Also car was DIRTY! I frequently rent cars and this was by far the dirtiest.

Toll Fee Scam
Cons: Charging a fee for EVERY day of a rental contract if you need to transit a toll without a cash option is a SCAM .. pure and simple. Charge a fee for each toll if needed, but NOT A DAILY FEE. When I asked how to avoid it I was told to avoid the toll route ... INCREDIBLE someone would actually say that.

What a joke
Pros: not much
Cons: I showed up to pickup my reservation and they asked for my payment method so I handed over the check card. After about ten minutes I was told that I cannot use a check card as payment because I did not pass the credit requirements(pretty strict apparently I have average credit) so I figured no big deal Ill use a credit card. Well apparently once you have failed the credit check you are not allowed to rent a car from budget but had I handed them the credit card the first time I would have been fine. So I went to enterprise and had a car in 10 minutes time with no reservation. While this is a policy of budget kayak should have been aware of this and either gotten it all sorted out ahead of time or itleast make it known that it was a possibility. I was picking the car up while traveling so luckily it worked out but if enterprise did not have a car ready for me I would have been stuck

Pros: The ease of dropoff and the friendly staff.
Feb 15 2016
Cons: The lady at the counter comfirmed I was dropping off the rental car at Richmond airport. When I plugged in the address to drop the car off on the return date, it was taking me to downtown Richmond. I tried to call customer service and took over an hour to get them to waive the $350 change fee despite being told i was going to RIC originally.

Pros: Booked through Kayak and got a better deal. Budget/Avis staff at the Norfolk airport were great. Didn't wait long. Easy check in process. Drop off was super early, 5:30 am. Attendant was great and a short walk to the terminal.
