Pros:Made reservations online. When arrived for pickup at SLC airport waited in line for 30 minutes. Was told my car wasn’t ready and I would have to wait for 30 minutes or more OR I could pay $40 more per day and get upgraded to a car that was ready right now. It looked to us like most people in line were being given the same sell. It felt to me like a big bait and switch. The upgrade was a nice small BMW SUV but I didn’t want to pay for it. I just wanted my original rental and the original price. But I didn’t want to wait another 1/2 hour plus.Cons:To have my reservation ready when I arrived.Reviewed Jun 13 2021

Pros:I got to budget at my reservation time at the airport. The main counter was closed. A sign said to go to the place you pick up/return cars. There was one person there checking in cars. I showed him my reservation and he said they sold out all ther cars the night before at 8:00. He said he could do nothing for me. I told him I had a reservation and wouldn’t leave til I got a car. He said that maybe a car would be cleaned at 8:00 AM. I told him I had an 8:00 meeting 1/2 hour away. He then told me I could rent “one of these BMW SUV’s now” I said at the Reservation rate? He said, “no, their rate is $190 /day..” unbelievable. I took an Uber to my meeting and did not have a car for three days. Never again with Budget. Most unbelievable travel experience I have had, really, and I’ve been to some somewhat sketchy places in the world.Cons:See aboveReviewed Jun 7 2021

Cons:Took too long to get the car. Only one counter employee. Price for a 5 day rental was more than my round trip airline tickets for 2 people.Reviewed May 20 2021

Pros:We didn’t get the type of vehicle we supposed to have . They gave is no option. We booked a small pickup truck and we got RAM2500 power wagon...try to drive and park this beast anywhere in Park City . We had to walk over a mile to town from our hotel .Reviewed Feb 23 2021

Pros:Cleanliness of vehicle.Cons:At the time of making the reservation budget states that a full size SUV would be a Chevy Tahoe or similar. That’s the kind of vehicle I was expecting (Ford Expedition, Nissan Armada, Toyota Sequoia, Toyota Land Cruiser, GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Tahoe) but I was given a Dodge Durango, a midsize crossover with 7 seats. Then at the counter they state that a Durango is pretty much a Tahoe which is a little bit lower to the ground. My family of 6 people had to carry luggage on their legs because of the small trunk with all the seats up. I explained the situation to Cody (manager in charge) he asked me to come back at 11pm that same day because we would receive a Ford Expedition. Once I went there, Cody’s shift ended so the manager in charge was Mark, which he did not have any information provided by Cody related to my particular situation. He asked me to come back at 7am the following morning so they can be plenty of vehicles and more likely they’d have a real full size suv available. So I went to the airport a third time but this time I arrived at 5:30am and I started looking at all the rental that were just returned. The third vehicle in that line was a Toyota Sequoia, so I said to myself. “Just wait until 7 as they requested but there’s a Sequoia there that may be assigned to me” and at 7am I went to the counter, by that time there was a GMC Yukon and a Ford Expedition that arrived later in that time frame and guess what: Mark was already gone, too. There was a lady with curly hair which I wish I remembered her name. She was the manager in charge of the lot at that moment, I explained the situation one more time and she is a little bit rude saying. This process will take at least 1:30hrs. I kindly explain that the sequoia is just the third vehicle in the line, and if she has a customer with special situation why not to help right away and have the detailing team to move 2 cars, so they can work on the sequoia and expedite the process for her and me. And she refused m, in fact, gave me some attitude. So at that point I gave up, felt really frustrated with the customer service and ended up losing 5 hours of my time in total by going 3 times to the airport and doing everything requested by the MANAGERS OF THE PLACE. That means that my family carried luggage through 1,500 miles on top of their legs inside a vehicle due to a lack of communication and/or not caring about the customer.Reviewed Feb 19 2021

Cons:We were unable to pick up our car since they said that it would be about an hour to an hour and a half from the moment we made the reservation through Kayak. We made the reservation when we landed as we landed earlier than expected and they were still going to be open, once we got there, the agent told us it would be 1 to 1.5 hours until the car would be available. This was at 12:45 AM with 45 degrees outside. In the end we went to another rental company and made a reservation on the spot.Reviewed Nov 16 2020
