Pros:That location was massively understaffed. I went in for my rental at 2, but didn’t leave until 3. The poor staff was extremely professional, but clearly very stressed out. The first car they gave me kept telling me there was no “key” in the car, and I could not track a single employee down to help me. Eventually, they swapped the car out, but I ended up missing my appointment due to the hour delay.Reviewed Jul 14 2020

Pros:The rate. The first office counter experience. The car.Cons:The car had an almost empty fuel tank. We reported this at the check-out counter and the representative seemed to enter this information into their system. I verbally confirmed that we need to bring the car with an almost empty fuel tank. Upon return, the tank had around 2 more gallons than at checkout. The receiving representatives were unfriendly and moreover they charged a $50+ fuel service fee without notifying me. Thankfully, I checked the receipt. I was told to go to the booth in the garage. The representative in the booth started with suggesting that I'm mistaken and the tank was most probably full. Thankfully again, I had taken the picture of the dashboard at the pick-up and showed it to them. I was planning to let go of the extra gasoline we had in the tank, but the bad attitude and unfriendly manner of the representatives so far made me upset and I demanded a reimbursement. Thankfully they were reasonable enough for refund and reimbursement. In short, a better check-out-in system and friendly and customer-oriented representatives can help a lot here.Reviewed Feb 19 2020

Pros:Because I used Kayak, I got sent to Holidaycars.com and they at first assured me my rental was booked only to later tell me it was not and that their "worldwide availabilities" were running low. So I had to rebook - from Budget directly - at a cost $150 more than the original, promised offer. HORRIBLE EXPErIENCE.Cons:Because I used Kayak, I got sent to Holidaycars.com and they at first assured me my rental was booked only to later tell me it was not and that their "worldwide availabilities" were running low.

Pros:Absolutely NOTHING.Cons:I’m so angry, I will never ever rent from budget again. The whole thing cost me more than twice the quoted price because they slapped me with all these bullshit insurance charges that the website made it seem like we’re included. I’m only using less shady companies from now on.Reviewed Sep 23 2019
