1.9 HorribleJul 12 2021
2.0 MediocreNov 28 2020
Pros: Nothing I never rented the car hertz couldn’t let me do so I would like a refund of my moneyCons: If hertz let me actually rent the car and not charge me
2.0 MediocreJun 15 2020
Pros: The staff was rude and I had to wait outside because the place was small. They didn’t open the doors till 9:05 with a few people in front of me already waiting. When I got there the sales associate asked my name and drivers license and then immediately tells me he doesn’t have a car to rent me. So I told him I didn’t want to rent a car I reserved a SUV online. So then he looks up my reservation and tells me that he still doesn’t have an SUV to rent to me (the person before me has just dropped off an SUV) so I asked well what about that one he just returned. He said no because I have 13 other customers to rent to who already prepaid online. He didn’t offer me any other option but to walk out. Ruined my entire dayCons: Everything. For starters don’t allow customers to rent vehicles that aren’t available. Open the store at the right time. Don’t be rude to the customer and maybe look up the reservation before you assume what they are going to be renting. I could go on but that’s a good start.
4.0 OkayMay 24 2020
Cons: Hertz did not honor rental. They said they had no cars. Int plans were ruined. I had to walk.
4.0 OkaySep 2 2019
Pros: the drop-off was easy at jfk. the car had bluetooth to connect my phone.Cons: the car was not ready at pick up. i didnt have options. the gas was only half full.
4.8 OkayOct 6 2018
2 hour wait for pick upPros: The car, once I got it, was clean and an easy drive.Cons: I waited for two hours despite having a reservation because none of the cars sitting in the lot had up to date registrations. There was a crowd of people waiting for any car to be returned.
6.8 GoodSep 18 2018
Easy to pick up and drop offPros: The car was nice. Pick up and drop off was quick and easy.Cons: I prepaid for gas so that I wouldn't have to come back with a full tank, but was not told that I wouldn't get a credit if the tank didn't need to be filled. So I paid 50 (3.10 per gallon) for a full tank, but returned the car with half a tank. So I lost money and feel a bit taken advantage of.
9.6 ExcellentAug 22 2018
Really good service—some wait for the carPros: Stephen Blasiak ( at least I am assuming that was him behind the counter) was patient & super nice to everyone.Cons: My car pick up was for noon, but because of the line, I didn’t get it until 1 pm. Not too bad, but a bit of a delay.
8.0 ExcellentMar 20 2018
Pros: All good, fast pick up

10.0 ExcellentDec 29 2020
Pros: Pleasant staff, quick service, was in and out in not more than 15 minutes
8.8 ExcellentMay 28 2020
Pros: i reserved a car at a location that was apparently closed and someone called to let me know to pick it up at another location. that was very helpful as to not waste time.Cons: the dropoff location that i had selected was closed but nobody called to let me know so i wasted time and gas going to a closed location. when i got there, i tried the number and nobody at enterprise answered to help. i headed over to the address underneath the phone number and luckily it was open and i was able to drop off car. it would've been nice to have a call just letting me know that the location wasn't open.
9.6 ExcellentFeb 11 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful and everything was quick.Cons: The rental was a bit pricey

4.0 OkayJun 29 2020
Pros: Drop off was very easy howerver, the rental agent was not friendly, most likely due to COVID-19.Cons: The car may have been sanitized but was not cleaned. I had to wash the front window due bugs covering the whole windshield left from the prior renter and it appeared someone spilled something (it actually looked like someone vomited in the vent) in the rear console vents which I cleaned with disinfecting wipes. Finally, I was suppose to get a Ford Edge and ended up with a GMC Terrain. Definitely not the same class vehicle.
4.4 OkayDec 30 2019
Pros: The location that Kayak provided with pinpoint was inaccurate. I finally found the place after asking local police officer. The car was dirty and beat up. It was very expensive for the quality. Finally, they charged me $15 gas charge without explanation. When I asked the desk, they said they automatically do this unless I show a gas receipt. The tank showed full but didn't have a receipt. I feel Budget is deceiptfulCons: Stop deceitful advertising
9.2 ExcellentNov 9 2019
Pros: Nice vehicles at a reasonable price.Cons: I had no problems with Budget.
10.0 ExcellentSep 17 2017

2.8 MediocreMar 6 2017
Pros: Drop off was fine.
2.4 MediocreFeb 14 2017
budget rip is a rip!!!Pros: car was clean, good on gas. That's it.Cons: Well, I had rented a car to go from FFLD. CT. to MEM. TENN. No problem. However, I had ended up in Savannah, Tenn. Now here's the kicker for 3 whole days I had called to make arraignments to drop off the car in Jackson Tenn. NO ANSWER FOR THREE DAYS. !!!! EVERY TIME I CALL NO ANSWER OR I GET THEIR NATIONAL HOTLINE. Very irritating!!! Now, it's a Monday 3 days after i'm supposed have dropped the car off. 3 days of late fees, and I'm told there's nothing I can do. Bullshit, we are suing for those three days and the late fees as well.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 6 2017
First time RentalPros: The Customer Rep was very friendly and personable! He was working alone that particular day and kept the line moving. I would definitely do a rental again from Budget!!!

Pros: The drop off in white plains was great.Cons: The Fairfield location is terrible. There was only one person working there and she was extremely unpleasant. The store was very dirty. The car had not been cleaned....there were coffee drippings and debris in the car. The outside of the car was also filthy. The back right tire was at 7 pounds. We will avoid this location at all costs.

2.0 MediocreSep 7 2016
reservation made online but not availablePros: Good ad, good price They let me know they could not do it fairly promptly but I relied upon the ads in making some last minute plansCons: I made a reservation with Budget and they called and told me there were no cars availalble. Did the same thing with Avis thru Kayak, made a reservation and they called to tell me know no cars were availalbe. Had to totally change plans and delayed my short trip by a day.
2.0 MediocreDec 22 2015
did not have car reserved weeks in advanceCons: Reserved large suv weeks in advance and verified day prior to pick up. Received call 1 hour prior to scheduled pick up stating "unable to locate car". On phone for 30 min speaking to people who had no concept or explanation . Was told they routinely overbook which makes selective car types frequently unavailable no matter how long you book in advance. Would NEVER use this company again.
