Cons: The cost of renting the car for one week during a time when demand for rental cars typically is relativelt slack.

Cons: Was charged more than $200 over what I was quoted. I will avoid Enterprise and carrentals.com in the future

Cons: 30-minute delay in picking up car

Cons: Our pickup was unexpected because we were at the wrong location. If you fly into Providence, RI, you won't pickup your car at the Providence, RI location. There is a separate location in Warwick, RI that is attached to the airport.
Cons: I didn't realize it until I had left the highway that the car reeked of cigarette smoke. Rental locations near my destination were inconvenient and the day I would have been able to switch vehicles, they were closed. When I returned the car, all they would do for me is give me a $10 discount on my next rental. I am allergic to cigarette smoke and was travelling with small children. We had to borrow a family member's car for our stay and only used the rental to drive 1 hour 15 minutes to and from the airport. I'm very disappointed Budget did not do the right thing.

Great price great service
Pros: Once I contacted budget, they were super helpful about making sure I got the car from their downtown location but was able to return it at the airport location without additional cost. Budget, both the local office I went to on Eddy street, and the national location I called when I was fixing my reservation, went above and beyond to make sure I got the best rate and the car and arrangements that I needed.
Cons: It's not budget's fault, but the KAYAK site included rates and results different from what I was searching for. I was very specific that I wanted to pick up and return at the Providence airport (TF GREEN) ONLY, but I kept getting not only BOSTON LOGAN airport rentals in my search result, but also pricing for various locations all over Providence. That turned out to be so much cheaper in the long run ($145 vs $400, total) and that's peachy, but I only figured that out AFTER I already made the reservation. So, it all came out ok in the end, but it felt disconcerting and a little misleading/difficult to navigate.

Cons: Forced to use a smoking car. Employee at pick up location very rude.
Pros: I was impressed with the personnel and the promptness in getting my car. I took the precaution of taking out insurance, and needed a push out of a snowbank, which resulted in some damage. Hertz personnel were utterly cool about it.
Cons: The only thing wrong with the car was the lighted plug. I was unable to charge my phone as I drove.
