Pick up was efficient , car was great. Lot easy to navigate. The drop off went smoothly they only issue was getting my emailed receipt, this has been a problem several times when I have rented from budget. , I have had to call and they always say they don’t have my email address which is a lie since they send me emails ALL THE TIME. And the staff can’t answer why this keeps happening and can’t transfer me to anyone who can tell my why it happening because apparently I’m the only one who has this problem (I asked them that specifically)Reviewed May 20 2024

Car was clean. Very long lines and and all the agents want to do is try to get you to do upgrades and add on extras to make more money.Reviewed Mar 24 2024

Pickup was a joke - had a 25 minute wait at counter and after completing the process sent downstair to actually get the car only to find that I and many were waiting because no cars were available. I rented a mid-sized SUV (Rav4) and was given a Mazda CX3 which could only fit two suitcases in rear after a 20 minute wait. Not the right class vehicle. Interior glass on windshield looked liked it hadn't been cleaned for months. Not a pleasant experienceReviewed Mar 20 2024

Hard to say that I liked much. The rental was filthy, and even when we inquired, we were told it had been through a wash. It was also scratched just about every where you looked on the outside and driving it, I was scared for our safety. The SUV was shaking at around 60 mph but we had no choice but to keep going not to miss our flight at LAX. Wouldn't do this again with Budget.Reviewed Mar 19 2024

I waited in line for 90 minutes to get a car. The car smelt of smoke. Drop off was easy, they seemed to be more organized than the pick up people.Reviewed Mar 19 2024

I liked the SUV, but it was frustrating to find the correct center to find the budget center in Phoenix. Then there was no one to direct us carrying all our luggage and sent us to the wrong floor. We then stood in line for an hour to get to an agent to get our car assignment, and he sent us to the wrong part of Sky Harbor. An hour and one half later we got to the car rental level and there was no attendant to direct us to R-46. It is now 2:30 am and there is no attendant to direct us to the car location. Along with another customer who was looking for his car we walked 20 minutes in this HUGE rental center for all car rental companies. I bumped into 2 men who were talking and asked if he worked here. He said yes and I asked where R-46 was, and he pointed way down the row to the end> we found the spot but no car there. A couple minutes later he drove up with the Expedition. My wife is 75 and I am 79 and we arrived at airport 11:30 am and finally got on our way at 2:45 am..Reviewed Mar 18 2024

Pick up and drop off was good. Friendly helpful agents. One thing I did not like was the type of car I rented was “managers special “ which never indicated it would be an electric vehicle- THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DISCLOSED. I would have selected a different choice. Instead no gos cars were available and I had no choice but to rent an SUV which was more expensive- I was disappointedReviewed Mar 1 2024

There was 1 to 1.5 hours long waiting line just to get to the counter at Budget in the Phoenix Airport. I canceled my reservation after waiting 20 minutes and booked with Hertz, which took me 10 minutes to pay for and drive away. Unlikely that I’ll book with Budget ever again.Reviewed Feb 12 2024
