Jun 15 2016
Will not do it again
Cons: I was punished by picking up the rental late. I was ended up with triple charges. Budget said the reservation was made through a 3rd party, while Kayak had no customer service agent I could speak to.

Kindness and professionalism at its best!
Pros: The rental experience I had with Jorge and his wife was the best I've ever had. They were extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs. They went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible experience. THANK YOU!

Dec 8 2015
Pros: Quick and extremely helpful/friendly check in. (I had mistakenly made my reservation for the wrong date - completely my fault - but the person working helped me through the changes and was able to switch my reservation over to the day I needed it with no change in price.) The car was basically brand new, very clean and in great condition.
Cons: My only problem was that I found it hard to find the rental counter - there weren't signs outside for Budget so I was confused. Luckily the door person at the hotel was able to point me in the correct direction!

4.8 Okay
Apr 11 2016
Cons: The car was clean but the smell of cleaning solution/ air freshener was really strong and gave me a headache. I had to have the windows open all day and all night to air it out. The next day, the smell was still evident and I had to wash the clothes I wore because the it seeped into my clothing. I wish they would have emailed me a copy of my receipt.
6.8 Good
Sep 6 2016
Pros: The car was ready for pick up at the time I requested and there was not a long wait to process. The care was in mostly good condition, with a small scratch on the back from a previous renter. Drove well and convenient for this weekend trip.
Cons: Drop off was fairly unorganized. There were several cars being dropped off and it was not clear where to go. When I went to return the paperwork, there were a ton of people waiting to pick up cars and it wasn't clear if we had to wait to process our forms too. After about 20 minutes of waiting, the lady at the desk told us we could leave the paperwork, which could have saved the time waiting in line.

Cons: Too expensive. So were others. Must be popular area, but still would like to push cost down.

Only Had 1 Car Available
Pros: The employee at the front desk was very nice.
Cons: I had asked for a "compact" car rental, and when I arrived at 7:15am was told that Avis had only one car available to rent at that moment - and it was a dodge minivan. It was massive. Though the employee at the desk gave me the same rental rate despite the different vehicle, it ultimately cost me more than a compact car would have because of the severe difference in gas mileage. I was extremely disappointed with this service and will not be using this location again.

Avis in Cambrige
Pros: Staff was courteous, the car was clean and the terms of contract were clear. The return was relatively hassle-free except the parking I was returning the car to was being washed and I had to find my way around to the drop off spot (there were no signs for re-direction).
Cons: I almost got charged $114 for a &69 rental because I was about to pick it up 30 minutes early, nobody was going to point this out to me until I showed my Kayak email and the counter clerk told me I was picking the car up 30 minutes early! I think $55 for 30 minutes is a bit steep, don't you?
6.0 Okay
Jul 12 2016
Cons: Pick up and drop off were both very slow and poorly coordinated. Drop off took about 20 minutes longer than it should have, and the customer service agents were rude and unhelpful even though they caused a significant inconvenience (I was on my way to the airport).

Overall great experiences
Pros: The guy was very friendly and helpful. The transaction was smooth and easy. The car was clean, and the ride was comfortable.
Cons: The only problem was when I tried to reduce the length of the reservation by one day, it became 50% more expensive. I later learnt that it was because I booked it via Kayak for the weekly rate. I wish I was informed of this to avoid the confusion and better plan my vacation.

Sep 12 2016
Cons: Car was given to me with a screw in the tire and when notified the office they would not help us out. We were placed in a dangerous situation as they would not pick up the car for us, instead made us drive on a highway to swap out the car. This was completely unacceptable and unsafe. The motto is supposed to be "we will pick you up" which clearly is not true. Then when I tried to drop off the car, the lot was full and nobody answered the phone for hours.
