I was sadly disappointed when I got the final receipt. According to my online booking it should have been $256 my final bill was $399. I added insurance but that was it. Apparently there are hidden costs. I was charged $40 because I booked pickup at an airport 🤷‍♀️ What??? First time using Budget never again.
