Random fees.
Pros: The service was fine; the workers were very nice.
Cons: I got charged for random late fees that even the people there didn't understand, and I don't have time to fight it. So it just leaves me feeling like I was cheated.

Good car, sounded like a good deal but when I drop
Pros: Car was good Car was clean Wait time at Newark was only 5-10 mins
Cons: 3 hours late to drop off the car due to a mishap and I was charged 1 full day of $137 extra! That was a rip off! I feel cheated.

Use a debit card and you will be judged
Pros: The car was clean and energy efficient.
Cons: The pickup process was lengthy, and the Budget agent made a big deal about our wanting to use a debit card to pay for the transaction. She brought up the notion that they would perform a credit check and If our credit wasn't up to their standards, they would reject our request for a car rental. This was a very negative, uncomfortable conversation as it seemed like the agent had already assumed our credit was unworthy. My boyfriend finally just handed over a credit card to end the unpleasant interaction. I have not encountered this attitude at other rental companies such as Enterprise.

Don't believe you'll get what you order!!!!!
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Thank god I called before I went. They were supposed to have a cargo van and I would have had a regular passenger van. Forget about calling doubt it they just give you the runaround and just transfer you and finally disconnect you.

Worst rental car company ever
Pros: Didn't like anything
Cons: The manager was rude and when I tried to pick up a confirmed rental, I was told there were no cars. I had a confirmation number, but she said that couldn't help me. This was the Payless rental at Newark airport. Went to the next counter and rented through budget. Don't book with them!

I'd much rather pay a little more at Hertz or some
Pros: less expensive than other options
Cons: Outrageously poor service and an infuriating experience Who are the clowns operating this half-baked rental car business out of Newark Airport? I'm guessing they're evil, whoever they are. When I arrived to claim my reserved car they lied about what my original reservation details were so that they could try to up-sell me into a more expensive contract. Try to get your head around that? The attendant was so rude, she wouldn't make eye contact, and she lectured me with her idiotic company-fed lines until finally accepting that the scam wasn't going to work on me. I eventually got my car as reserved, but it stank like smoke. Absolutely horrific.

Lost & Cancelled Reservation
Pros: I liked the initial feeling that this was going to go well based on the efficient booking process on Kayak. This was very short lived.
Cons: My reservation was lost, and then when my partner attempted to get any information using all of the reservation info that I passed along to him (and offering to have them call me directly, or me call them), he was told that there was nothing that he could do. Then, they "found" the reservation by looking under a code for another airport and alerted him that they had no cars left even though we attempted to notify them and modify the reservation/late pickup. Once told they had absolutely no cars, we both again looked online and immediately found that we were able to reserve the same car at the same price. When we showed that to the counter help, they sighed and said that yes they did have cars, but it would be "like, 45 minutes" until they were ready at the earliest. None of this really made sense, but I wasn't exactly approaching this budget car rental situation with that expectation. Luckily, my partner was able to make a separate reservation, and then "spend time at Dunkin Donuts" until the car was "ready" as directed. I did end up paying for a car rental insurance agreement for both times I attempted to book, and not for the actual rental that took place. Silver lining though - we didn't get any additional damage charges while risking the lack of round 3 insurance!

Avoid if possible
Pros: Good price, friendly at the counter
Cons: The 90 minute wait, the poor condition of car (including broken AC) never received key so couldn't restart and car was towed without my consent- with my stuff still inside and wasn't given new car for full day (but charged for full time)

Too many unnecessary fees
Pros: New, clean car. Returning was easy enough I guess.
Cons: I feel like they are dishonest with regard to fees. They upsell insurance hard and it's not needed for almost everyone. Also, they charge an absurd amount to use EZ-pass which is very convenient in the tristate area. Ridiculous and inconvenient. Other rental companies don't charge for EZ-pass (including zipcar).
