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

What’s with two pieces of picture ID required? A driver’s license is no longer sufficient. Hmmmm.Reviewed Sep 26 2022

The check-in staff was very good. And the Manager was excellent in quickly approving my request to alter the time of return.Reviewed May 11 2022

Cons:When we booked the car for our trip we requested a Ford Focus or similar. This is a 4 door sedan. When we arrived we were given a Volkswagen Beetle. Not exactly what we were expecting or similar.Reviewed Feb 13 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Getting to the rental agency and eventually to the vehicle was very convenient.Cons:Agent was slightly confused about the fact that it was a one-way rental. After a long drive, the budget drop-off office had no bathrooms available, apparently, and I had to walk across four lanes of rush-hour traffic in the snow WITH LUGGAGE to use a bathroom at a coffee shop across the street! The agent there was aware of my obvious discomfort (made a comment to me about such) but didn't offer to hold my bags or allow me to use the staff bathroom even though I was a paying customer.Reviewed Nov 15 2019
