The desk clerk was awesome. But when I went to get a car, they initially tried to give me a car that was filthy inside snd out and smelled. It was obvious that it had not been cleaned whatsoever. You could not even tell if the car had any scratches or dings on it it was so dirty. After pressing them on the issue they finally agreed to give me something else. After that, things were fine. They should have apologized and immediately given me another vehicle. I should not have to press the issue at all.

I was pleased with the service I had with Budget Rental. First time I had to rent at the last minute and under strange circumstances with my flight, Budget made it a very smooth transition

They did hand me a car half full, gas. I did not notice until out the door so could not correct when I turned the car back in

Even thought the car was supposed to be smoke free it was clear that someone had smoked in it and the odor was supposedly concealed with air freshener.

7.9 GoodJul 12 2021
My vehicle was close to what I had reserved. It suited my needs well. The car was quite new with less than 4k miles on the odometer. It had not been cleaned particularly well after the last person turned it in. I found a bag of chips in the glove compartment and a dirty rag in the rear seat area. If it was vacuumed at all, it was minimal.

The e-z pass did not work consistently. I informed them of this at drop off and that I missed a toll due to that and not being able to back up to pay
6.0 GoodDec 17 2020
Staff was friendly and helpful at pick-up. Process was relatively quick. Nobody there for drop off so hopefully that went ok. I just dropped the keys in a box.Car stunk like cigarettes and then I found a pack under the seat. I guess that was missed by whoever cleaned the car

Why the switchCar was well equipped with blind spot detection, especially useful driving in Boston.I had reserved a sedan but only SUVs and Mini-vans were available. When I said that I would not drive one of those types of vehicles, I was told that I would have to wait about half an hour. When I said that I would wait, within one minute a sedan was available. Interesting! This is similar to being seated at the worst table in a restaurant when there are no other people there. Is this common practice?
9.6 ExcellentMar 18 2018
Fast and easyNo issues on pick up or drop off. Albany is on site. I had to wait for attendant to show but only a couple of minutesNo signs for car rental returns at LaGuardia so you have to look up yourself.

Car was clean and I enjoyed driving it.Initial prepaid reservation was for Jeep SUV for 9 days at 449.00. When I called to change reservation to 7 days I was informed new cost would be approx. 1200.00. It took 2 more calls before someone suggested I change car to mid size which would result in price increase of approx. 100.00.

3.9 MediocreOct 5 2021
The van had illegal tires with tread, it wasn’t ready even hours after I was supposed to pick up, the tire had a leak and the jack compartment was apart and all of the back
5.9 OkaySep 25 2021
Van had a terrible smell that was very evident at pickup and throughout rental. Cheeze It crackers were on last row seats. Directions for pickup should indicate "airport counter" on confirmation email. I stood online in garage pickup area line for 10 minutes only to be told to go into airport counter.

2.0 MediocreJun 11 2021
They did not have the truck I reserved. I reserved a pickup truck for moving and they wanted to replace it with a Toyota Corolla and could not understand why I was not satisfied. The manager was rude and extremely unhelpful. I was given the number of Avis customer service, waited on hold for 20 minutes, only to find they were closed. I was not able to rent from them and had no choice but to pay triple the cost to Alamo for a pickup. For this reason, I am requesting a full refundIf they had the vehicle I reserved
6.0 GoodMay 17 2021
Staff needs to clean the cars inside and out before renting. I went inside a vehicle and it wreaked of cigarette smoke. It was disgusting. Another vehicle wasn’t clean on the outside.
2.4 MediocreJun 17 2020
Staff at counter was friendly--Staff at counter was unable to be reached by phone. Drove 3 1/2 hours each way (NYC --> Albany) to drop off old rental and pick up a new one, then was told at counter that I needn't have made the drive in the first place and I could've just kept the original rental. --Car smelled of cigarettes. Was told to just write down the issue on my rental agreement. --Staff at counter was unable to be reached by phone a second time (and I called over 20 times). This became an issue when I had to extend my new rental. --Toll-free customer service was completely useless when I contacted them to voice my concerns. --In a word, Avis = terrible. I've been an Enterprise customer for 12 years, and I'm kicking myself for using Avis this time.

6.8 GoodMar 7 2017
I liked the final price and the choice of car.The pickup location listed on the itinerary was not the pickup location. It was the Enterprise gated lot where the inventory is kept, a mile away. The literal hike back to where I knew the Enterprise booth was at the airport (at a completely different address than was listed on my itinerary), was a complete waste of my time. I have had to take shuttles about a mile away from the airport in different locations to pickup rental cars in the past, so the initial directions taking me past the airport did not seem out of the ordinary for pickup at first. Once finally at the counter, the sales rep tried to tell me the insurance I could opt for at $9/day was $14/day. I had it right on the paper print out but he acted "surprised." I am smart enough to know that this was an attempted upsell. I am also aware that you do not even need this insurance, so I asked him to forget it all together. Then I was told that the car rate was going up because of this. Which annoys me. 1.) Because my rate was booked independent of the insurance I hadn't opted into yet, and 2.) Because this was Saturday morning. I was taking a car off his hands for the weekend that would otherwise badly affect his numbers. I almost cancelled all together because of this until miraculously I rented an upgraded car for a discounted rate (that was still an upsell for him) after explaining I know how this works. Way too much BS to go through especially when surrounded by other car rental services in the airport who are also trying to get rid of cars over the weekend. The lines at the other desks were the sole reason I rented with Enterprise.

7.2 GoodAug 17 2016
Drove about 60 miles from Albany, got a flat, called customer service(roadside assistance ), told it wouldbe $65 for someone to come out...and that was to just put the spare on, not a new tire. I said i can put the spare on myself. Then was told had to drive back to albany to get a new car. Got back to Albany and find out that if I had the roadside assistance (wasn't mentioned or offered at pickup ) they would have brought a new vehicle to me. Not a good experience.

East pick-up and drop-off, friendly staff.Car was smaller then expected and looked like it hasn't been cleaned before I picked it up. Asking for a credit card to rent or running a credit checked seemed excessive to rent a vehicle.

9.6 ExcellentJan 30 2017
I liked the vehicle. But what I really liked was that they voluntarily shaved some off the final bill because I had used so little fuel. I had prepaid for gas so I wouldn't have to find a gas station when I returned the car.The wait at the counter was long, about 20 minutes.
