ScammersPros:No transportation from airport, had to Uber there. They asked me where I came from when I got there(which is none of their business), and because I said "I flew in" they charged me an addition $100 for airport tax even though their location is NOT at the airport. My suggestion is if anyone goes here do NOT tell them where you came from, it's not their business. I was with my parents and luckily I cancelled my reservation and my mom rebooked it in her name and said she DIDNT come from the airport. Such a pain. Will never go here again.Reviewed Jan 16 2017

Pros:The price was awesome and the service was top notch at both pick up and drop off. We had reserved a mini-van but when we arrived there were none available. A four door pickup was provided instead at the same price. Thank you!Cons:It was a great experience.Reviewed Mar 15 2020

Waited 2 hours in SLC to pick up a carPros:The car was cleanCons:waited 2 hrs to get a van when we requested an suv. We made reservations weeks in advance only to arrive at the counter and be told "The cars were being cleaned." When I pressed them they admitted they were actually waiting for cars to be returned. They should have given free upgrades or some kind of compensation to all of us waiting.Reviewed Jun 14 2016

The worst ever!Pros:Nothing at all. Very infuriating to everyone in line, with few parties actually walking away with keys or the car they had reserved and after being asked to wait an unspecified amount of time with little hope of the kind of satisfactory experience one would expect to receive from a car rental agency.Cons:Everything. I reserved JUL 20th 2015, nearly a year in advance for a Chevy Suburban or equivalent vehicle for $784.55. Original pick up and return dates of JUL 2-16. On MAY 20, 2016, I adjusted my pick up and return dates to JUL 1-15 via voicemail left and a voicemail reply. I have the voice mail from Megan at the Salt lake City Airport confirming the change was made, although the voicemail shows it came from Mableton, Georgia? Upon arrival in SLC, the change did not show as JUL 1-15 and I was asked to be on standby for an unspecified amount of time if I wanted to pick my vehicle up a day early. After two more long waits back at the end of the line, it did not look promising for that day or even the next day that anything would be different. Why didn't they know when the next suburban or Expedition was due in? They said tomorrow would probably be like today! Everyone noticed all the other car rental agency agents shaking their heads like they see this every day. I cancelled with Budget and rented from Dollar in minutes, getting exactly what I had reserved through Budget, but for $2,339.35. $1,555 more. Are you happy? I'd like my $1555 dollars back. I will not rent from Budget SLC again until there is a new crew and management in that location.Reviewed Jul 19 2016
