Cons: Nothing
8.4 ExcellentOct 25 2020
Pros: Drop off very quick and easy.Cons: No traveller's info transfered to the rental so we had to wait while they entered it all manually. Total cost was 31% higher than the estimate.

Cons: Took over an hour to get the car.
2.0 MediocreSep 2 2020

2.0 MediocreAug 23 2020
Pros: The canceled via text an hour before pickup.
2.0 MediocreAug 4 2020
Cons: They cancelled my reservation by text five minutes before it was to begin. Apparently car availability isnt reflected in the online listings accurately
10.0 ExcellentDec 31 2019
Pros: The team over there is great, in and out fast, and adding the after hours checkout is a “nice to see” recent upgrade.
10.0 ExcellentAug 2 2019
Cons: Nothing, they’re great!
4.4 OkayJun 12 2019
Pros: The staff was very courteous.Cons: The car class I ordered was not available and nothing even close was on the lot. The car they gave me was dirty and I had to wait while they cleaned it. It was delivered to me with a broken seat adjustment knob and with only a half tank of gas.
2.0 MediocreOct 13 2018
Cons: Smelled bad. Short hours at pickup and dropped locations. Only has trucks?! Called to get an estimate on returning it a few hours late and was given wildly different estimates from different people.

3.6 MediocreJul 28 2020
Pros: friendly staffCons: The car was not ready when I went for the pick up and I have been asked to come 1 hour later. Received a smaller car than the one I booked and the car was dirty in the inside and the outside.
4.0 OkaySep 4 2019
Pros: Unfortunately didn’t like my experience at this location.Cons: It took two hours and forty five minutes to pick up the car I booked online. They gave me less than half tank gas and charged me $20 for his. Customer service was horrible and the office smelled terrible
2.0 MediocreAug 5 2019
Pros: Poor customer service at Courtyard Marriott Emeryville. Yes, we arrived near closing, not aware of the closing hours. They did not have a car for us that we prepaid for, nor did they have a similar car. Will not use kayak, nor Hertz at this location again. Nor will I recommend anyone else to do so.Cons: Have the car or similar available as stated in the agreement. This is very bad business folks. We had to take our personal car on our trip and it was miserable! SMH
2.4 MediocreJul 29 2019
Cons: we ordered a pickup at 5pm, that was the closing time, got yelled at. Took 1 hours to get the car. Car was dirty, system was slow and no info about drop off at the end. Costs were not the same as online. Last time that I rent from Hertz
6.4 GoodJul 27 2019
Pros: good friend serviceCons: the car reeked of cigarette smoke. they had no inventory to replace it, but did call another office for availability.
8.8 ExcellentApr 1 2019
Pros: The car was in great condition, and, due to them being short on intermediate cars, we got a free upgrade.Cons: Pickup took nearly an hour, since the car was not clean when we arrived.
6.0 GoodApr 14 2018
Pros: Car had good gas milageCons: Car was dirty, had to clean inside of glass to see. Car only had 1/4 tank of gas— no credit for bringing it back full. There were still items from the previous renter in car.

2.0 MediocreMay 6 2021
Pros: The drop-off representative was very helpful and understanding of the issues we faced with our car rental.Cons: The car had no windshield wiper fluid and no UBS ports so we couldn't charge our phones and have the benefit of a nav system.
2.0 MediocreApr 5 2021
Pros: I picked my car on Friday 4/2/2021 and sropped off the same day at a dfferent location. On Monday, I received an email that I was a no-show for my rental pick upi and that a charge of $50 will be applied to my credit card. I tried to call but the cale was disconnected twice and after that there was a problem wtih a website. Absolutely a dishonest service! I am shocked!
8.0 ExcellentApr 3 2021
Pros: Staff was very helpful if not overly courteous. Convenient location and acceptable price.
10.0 ExcellentNov 2 2020
Pros: Staff is incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient with check-out and check-in.
4.0 OkayOct 6 2020
Pros: The staff at the pick up place was not friendly or helpful at all. Actually, I'm gonna file a claim against that woman to Avis. I will never recommend to use that branch. She was the worst stsff ever in my experience without any respect or kindness to a customer.Cons: I believe the owner of the branch should be resigned.
5.6 OkayJun 22 2020
Pros: The car functioned and was full of gas when I got it.Cons: During coronavirus, I expected the car to be cleaner. There was a straw wrappers and other trash by the passenger seat, which makes me wonder if it was sanitized between users.
6.0 GoodJun 9 2020
Pros: Cars are available most of the time Price is goodCons: The car was dirty and the gas tank was not full
8.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2020
Cons: The price that was quoted on Kayak was $10 lower than what Avis charged me. Avis couldn’t tell me why the final price was higher.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2017
Pros: Quick car delivering, clean, corresponding to the model I needed. I had a problem with my passport, forgotten in the train and waiting it to come back at the station, and the employee accepted a copy of it to build the contract. Fortunately I got my passport quickly...
10.0 ExcellentJan 5 2017
Pros: the price for returning to a neighborhood location vs the airport was significant. This was a little far and might have been a 30 dollar uber to the Oakland airport but I had a friend to take me anyway... So mostly I appreciated the significant savings by using off airport pick up and delivery

7.6 GoodJul 22 2018
Practical and comfortablePros: The process was smooth and easy - both for pick up and drop off.Cons: The car smelled a bit like smoke.
10.0 ExcellentJul 8 2018
Pros: The service at the Emeryville, CA location was exceptional. We had our plates stolen. The agent, owner helped us and provided a new car immediately.
5.6 OkayJul 18 2017
Pros: They made a mistake and gave us the wrong car at the first rental car pickup, but then they were nice enough to make it up free of charge at the second pickup location.Cons: The first pickup location (the original), did not have any compact cars, only trucks and SUV's, which we did not want at all. So we had to take part of a day from our vacation replacing the car, which took a few hours and some very unhelpful people at the national budget phone line (when I called, I couldn't talk to any local representatives, only national and they did not seem to understand my request). The car we finally got was also not great at accelerating, which made entering the freeway a little hard every time we tried.
2.0 MediocreApr 9 2017
Terrible customer service!Cons: Budget didn't honor the price of the reservation, is charging us double the rate quoted in the booking. When we tried to correct the error, we've been given the run-around. We've been given 5 different customer service numbers to call and still haven't reached a representative to help sort out the issue. The staff and manager we've talked to say they can't do anything, we have to reach customer service, who won't answer the phone or emails. Plus, a part fell off the car on the highway, which I'm sure they'll charge us for too. I will never rent from Budget again!
6.0 GoodJan 17 2017
Logistical nightmare, cost me moneyPros: Courteous and well-intentioned staff, good car. I'd originally booked a car for pickup on Webster St. in Oakland and dropoff at SFO but they were able to change the dropoff to Webster St. in Oakland for me, which I appreciated.Cons: I'd informed the counter at the time of pickup that I intended to drop the car off the next day. The counter failed to inform me that, due to the MLK holiday (Jan 16), the dropoff site at Webster St would close early, at 1pm. The site was closed when I arrived at 2:30pm, with a homemade sign on the door noting the early holiday closing hour. After a long call with several agents on the phone, they told me I'd need to drop the car off at Oakland airport. I spent about an hour in traffic and $20 on a taxi because the desk failed to inform me that I needed to have the car back by 1pm on Jan 16.
7.2 GoodJan 9 2017
Pros: Easy pick up and drop offCons: We did not know about additional fee for using fast track (toll roads) before we were billed.
4.4 OkayNov 29 2016
Pros: Easy pickup processCons: waited around ten minutes for an employee to show up. The car smelled awful, drove for three hours with the windows down to get the worst of it out.
2.0 MediocreOct 14 2016
Got random unexplained chargdCons: I received an unexplained $8.95 charge from budget on october 10th 8 days after I returned the vehicle. This needs to be refunded immediately!
6.8 GoodAug 24 2016
Cons: Base rate was $60 higher than online quote. 40%!
2.0 MediocreMar 23 2016
DO NOT RENT FROM BUDGETPros: The car was good and new.Cons: The people were extremely nice but she didn't gave me enough information.
