Pros: Well first off I reserved a standard car to go up to the snow. But when I got there the guy sold me the truck that I'm in now very disappointing. Not only did the car run bad but it was more than twice but you money as the one I picked at first. The guy at the counter talk so fast I didn't understand him the next thing I knew I was signing by signature and sealing the deal. I will never rip with budget again now I'm out $250 I did not have after going on a ski trip with my kids.

Logistical nightmare, cost me money
Pros: Courteous and well-intentioned staff, good car. I'd originally booked a car for pickup on Webster St. in Oakland and dropoff at SFO but they were able to change the dropoff to Webster St. in Oakland for me, which I appreciated.
Cons: I'd informed the counter at the time of pickup that I intended to drop the car off the next day. The counter failed to inform me that, due to the MLK holiday (Jan 16), the dropoff site at Webster St would close early, at 1pm. The site was closed when I arrived at 2:30pm, with a homemade sign on the door noting the early holiday closing hour. After a long call with several agents on the phone, they told me I'd need to drop the car off at Oakland airport. I spent about an hour in traffic and $20 on a taxi because the desk failed to inform me that I needed to have the car back by 1pm on Jan 16.
