The location on Somerset street Ottawa is my absolute worst experience with car rental. Vehicle had so many KM and was starting to fall apart. Vehicle was dirty even though they said it was clean. Back seatbelt didn’t work. Weird brake noises. Was charged $750 credit card hold.Reviewed Aug 7 2023

Car was dirty , hadn’t been disinfected , vacuumed, customer service was ok , felt rushed .. not a personal experience. Most rental places drive you back , but they did not. Price was reasonable, got in on a good price. Don’t think I would go back to that particular location. Maybe try another location next time!Reviewed Oct 17 2022

I was unable to rent a vehicle, though I had reserved one. The machine to read my licence did not work, so I could not proceed with renting the vehicle that I had reserved. The staff seemed to imply that my licence was invalid. They said to me that I should try to rent from another company, which I did. There was no problem with my licence being read and another company was happy to rent to me, though I missed out on the better priced vehicle from Budget.Reviewed Oct 4 2022

I have been overcharged and will now have to contact Budget to resolve the $500 on my card. Upon pick up, the vehicle was disgustingly dirty. There was a chip in the windshield and during the walk around, the employee said that if it worsened it would be at my cost. He did not even inspect the inside of the vehicle. They were not even open upon me returning the vehicle. They did not honour my promo code. An all around horrible experience and I will not book again.Reviewed Oct 3 2022
