Awful experience - rude, unhelpful desk person, noCons:Our flight came in late and we missed the pick up window. I emailed Budget to let them know, but this message didn't get through to the rental location. When we picked up our car, the woman was not very friendly and said we missed our window and it was given away. She said they had no cars left for us. She did not give us other options of where to rent or what to do in this situation. She did not show sympathy either. Do not rent from Budget. We went with Europcar in the end. They were nice and had a great car for us (and their counter was right next to the Budget one).Reviewed Feb 27 2017

Pros:We just dropped off our car in Queenstown, didn't pick one up, so not much to really report in the "like" or "dislike" columns that hasn't already been said.Cons:Maybe would've been useful to have some signage with instructions since there was only one staff member around and I didn't want to interrupt him only to find out I didn't need to do anything other than drop the car off and deposit the keys.Reviewed Feb 24 2017

Car was great but had issues with pricing.Pros:The pick up and drop off were both easy and we were happy to be upgraded to a nicer car when we picked it up in Christchurch. We loved the car and found it to be clean, comfortable, and smooth throughout our 8-day rental.Cons:When we dropped the car off in Queenstown, we were shocked to find that our receipt said we were charged more than 2x as much as my reservation said we would be paying. We were in a rush and didn't notice this until after we left the lot, so we called the Queenstown Budget office. Luckily, they fixed the issue and we were charged the correct amount. Thank you Claire!Reviewed Jan 22 2017
