The Budget location employees went over and above to make the car rental experience a good one. We added a second driver with no problem and dropping the car off was expeditious. I received an email receipt immediately after bringing the car back. All and all a very positive experience.Reviewed Jan 20 2024
review fromkayak
Pros:Staff are hard to reach, not very knowledgable, and not very professional. They like to argue and leave you feeling like they have no intention of helping you. They need to be re-trained, other rental companies have much better staff. By a long shot.Cons:Your computer system is horrible for keeping track of reservation information. Your staff needs a huge attitude adjustment, they are rude! Your reservations are too inflexible to allow me to make necessary changes. Your reservations does not keep track of the request to drop off at a different location. Your phone system is inadequately staffed, and the staff in my pick up location never answers their phone. They do not like to work.Reviewed Mar 5 2021

Cons:The car we reserved was not available. We were told it would arrive the next day and it didn’t. This delayed our trip and ultimately forced us to make a reservation with a different company at a much higher cost.Reviewed Jul 2 2020

Cons:Will never rent from them again. Reserved a car online, pickup on July 4th. Site closed early. Customer service could not find my reservation and was less than helpful. I could barely understand him and he kept insisting that my rental was for a different city on a different date. Use Enterprise !!Reviewed Jul 11 2019

Better Clarification NeededCons:The stand was inside a Sears Auto Care and I had to call a number to get someone to come to the stand. The gentleman didn't specify that I'd be charged for a whole new day if not returning to Tampa exactly at 24 hrs. When I returned, it was explained why it was double what I was expecting but I could've planned differently had I known it wasn't prorated for an hour or two over. Also didn't have cruise control on the car which is a big feature when driving longer distances.Reviewed Sep 11 2017
