Pros: I had a big family group and their luggage to transport, so Initially I reserved a Ford Expedition SUV. At the counter they persuaded me to upgrade to a Lincoln Navigator, which actually was quite nice and posh. Check-in and return processes were both quick.
Cons: The vehicle wasn't as clean as it should be. The dashboard and control screen were covered with fingerprints. How hard would it be to wipe these down occasionally? Also, there was a giant bird poop stain on one of the doors. Shouldn't this have been obvious to them after running it through the car wash?

Pros: Quick check in... The car was full of features for the money... No hidden fees
Cons: The car that we received had a filthy exterior and the interior had only received a quick once over (there was still some trash inside that had been missed).

Pros: We were offered an upgrade for a reasonable price and it ended up suiting our needs much better than the car we originally requested.

Rental office did not answer phone.
Pros: Price was as advertised.
Rental office people very pleasant.
Shuttle driver very pleasant. Made an effort to pick up our bags and get us situated when we didn't have enough hands (traveling with a young child)
Cons: Had to drop off early in the morning (4am), and could not reach the rental office to determine if they would have a shuttle available at that time. Had to rely on YELP to determine that they did in fact have a shuttle. Caused some anxiety trying to figure this out...

Handled with Care
Pros: I was traveling with my elderly mother and when we arrived to return the car we were told they would provide personal direct transportation to our air carrier and did not need to take the shuttle. This was an outstanding service

Cons: The customer service representative was the rudest individual I have ever dealt with. They did not have my car that I had reserved, and if they did, they required me to add additional insurance for $2,000. I asked if this was a joke, and it was explained to me that it is only required for convertibles? None of this was stated prior to my arrival. I will never use Budget again.

Cons: PIck up in Hartford was a bit unorganized due to limited staffing. I had to wait for an extended period of time before the desk agent could assist me. There was one agent working both the National (?) and ALamo desks and there were at least 3 parties there waiting for assistance. The agent was very cordial and kept us apprised of how she was handling each party and the order in which she was assisting each. When it was finally my turn, the process of picking up the vehicle was very smooth and easy. Drop off was very easy as well. Would certainly rent again.

Cons: I had to change my plans. I didn't like that the reservation, unlike most car rental reservations, was non-refundable
Sep 26 2016
Cons: I stood in line for 90 min. waiting for a car. Their was only one person at the desk with a line that just kept getting longer. The check in machine worked once without assistance so no one would use it. The young lady was very prof.. but needed help she didn't have.
Cons: Car was banged up, and the customer service representative was very rude.

Cons: The Payless counter closed at 11pm and my flight was scheduled to land at 11:30. I called them to ask if there would be a way to handle it or if I should re-book with another vendor. Payless said they would leave my contract and car key at the Budget desk. I arrived at the Budget counter at 11:55pm only to find that this was not done and it is never done. Payless told me it would be taken care of and it was not so I was left trying to find a car rental at midnight.
