I will never rent from Budget again.
Cons: I was overcharged for my rental by about $70 for gas. I told Budget I did not want the "fuel up front" option when we rented the car, and was told I would not be charged for that. I returned the car with an almost full tank, expecting that I would be charged for the 1 or 2 litres necessary to fill up the tank. Instead I was charged 70 euros for the "fuel up front" option. I emailed the Station Manager, Julien Sigonney, at the Paris station in response to an email he sent me stating that if I had any concerns I should contact him directly instead of give a bad review. I emailed him immediately, asking for our final bill to see what I was charged for. It took him several days to get me a copy. Once I got a copy, I saw what I had been overcharged for and asked for a refund. It has not been two weeks and he has not responded. I have emailed twice more to get a response, and have received nothing. I will never rent from Budget again, and will make sure no one I know does either.

We loved our car. The woman at desk upgraded us to
Pros: We had booked a smaller car but we were upgraded to a small SUV. It was very comfy and a smooth ride
Cons: It took a long time to check out

Should have learnt my lesson from my previous expe
Pros: when I returned the car 2 hours late, I argued and waiting for about an hour so they could 'not' charge me an extra day. that was nice.
Cons: Renting a car is such a pain, scam, and sadly sucks away the excitement of a short break before you even set off. I booked four days car rental for $230 knowing I would get stung for some insurance. Then I ended up getting a smaller car, waiting 2 hours for it, being charged extra because they didn't have my car, paying surcharges.. dropping off the car with a final bill of around $550 conveniently charged to my credit card, I walked out of Avis/Budget counter feeling pretty sore. Onur ps. i didn't even opt for the $40 a day full insurance

Cons: The total cost was much higher than we have been told and in the credit card receipt it showed that the rental agency was Avis and not Budget, as we had thought.
