Pros: The Rogue was a really nice vehicle, drove well.
Cons: Though my wife reserved a minivan a month in advance, none was available when I came to pick up the vehicle, and the Nissan Rogue substitute was overpriced, even with the 10% discount the manager supposedly gave me on it.
No unlimited mileage was available at the Nashua location so it turned out to be a very expensive trip, far more than we expected with a vehicle that was undersized for our purposes.
The manager and his staff were not personable, not in person and not over the phone, and came across as a bit shady.

Cons: This budget concession is defrauding their customers. They added three bogus charges to my bill upon return. The contract from Budget and Kayak was ignored. They said "Oh yah...those internet reservations don't include all the costs.

Pros: Not an excessive wait at pick up and turn in.
Cons: As a professional traveler I've rented a lot and this was perhaps my worst experience. Despite having arranged by phone to pick up first thing in the AM following the day before's PM reservation, my reserved compact car (Ford Focus or equivalent) was not available. The agent, who was stating that I had reserved a sub-compact, offered an upgrade to an intermediate size and produced a wreck of an Impala with a cracked windshield and an out-of-balance wheel. The wheel produced excessive noise and vibration on the highway, so we exchanged vehicles at another Budget location. This Budget licensee appeared to be doing a classic bait-and-switch.

Pros: The cashier lady was very nice
Cons: Hidden costs. extremely low mileage allowance, hidden costs, the kayak quoted price was not the price I paid, hidden costs, $9.50 per gallon if not returned full; hidden costs, if you are in an accident you will pay the daily rental fee until the car comes back out of the shop and is place back in service. Are you kidding me?
Note: I expected to pay $33/day but was then quoted $38 plus .50/mile. Yes...$.5/mile. So do not plan out going anywhere with your newly rented car. I have not received the invoice yet, so I do not know if more hidden fees have been tacked on.
AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS>

ripped off by Budget in Nashua NH
Cons: The standard for most rental cars now is unlimitied miles and EVERY rental car company makes clear notice notice for all fees. VERY OTHER rental agency tells you the fees then circles the clearly outlined fees and has you intial them.
Budget,ina CLEAR EFFORT TO DECEIVE CUSTOMERS, did neither. They did not say anything about a per mile charge, they did not print it in large clear lettering on the form, and they did not circle it.
I was charged twice the daily rate for milage fees (going to the airport twice). In small print was a reference to extra milage fees filled in with smaller print than the daily rate. a large indistinct circle was scrawled that did not dra my attention to any content other than the daily rate.
I scanned the form- not expecting to being deceived- though I should have read the fine print. When Kayak listed Budget as the cheapest choice I thought I was in good shape- WRONG. I encourage everyone to avoid Budget and ESPECILLY AVOID BUDGET RENT A CAR in NASHUA, NH

Cheapest price around
Pros: Cost was fantastic.
Cons: The car had a cigarette burn in the seat and a warning light of some sort was on. For the price I paid and for what I needed it for, it was fine, but it kind of felt low class.

Good daily rate but high fees
Pros: We rented a 7 person minivan. Site said " grand caravan or similar". We got a ford transit connect. Good rate, car fit the bill. If you are going to rent it know the connect does not have the luggage space of the caravan which may be a negative, but that also makes the vehicle shorter, which in our case was a positive. The deal was not as good as it looked. $78 + 100 mi/day is a good rate, but we ended up with $116.00 dollars in fees for a 4 day rental. I understand fees, but this seems excessive.
NH Rental 35.44. (Included tax on fees charged)
Vehicle license fee: 28.58. (Should be $5 - $10)
Concession fee: $42.93. ( this was not rented at an airport so I do not know where this fee comes in)
Cons: Fees seemed excessive.

Pros: Car was available on time. Easy to get to and get out.
Cons: Aside from the rental smelling like cigarette smoke and the car driving poorly (lot of road noise and a slipping transmission), I had a nightmare of a drop-off experience.
When I returned the rental the final cost was more than 3x the original booking amount. They added a $28 / day insurance policy and made no mention of it to me during the pick-up.
They claim this must have been added on as an option when booking through Kayak, but when I reviewed (and showed them) my booking, there was no mention of the added insurance.
I spoke with the manager and the owner of this branch and they made 0 effort of remedying the situation.
I will not be using this branch again and will be contacting Budget directly.
Cons: I called to extend my reservation. They gave me an estimate and decided not to because it costed more than I thought. However, they charged me $11 just for doing that

Hertz Nashua NH
Pros: Great Service clean car
Cons: No complaints
May 3 2017
Cons: Extra charge to drop off different location

Tried to charge me more than the agreed upon rate
Pros: Desk person was courteous and tried to help resolve my issues. Pick up and drop off worked well.
Cons: The person working the counter was courteous and helped me work through the issues. One issue was resolved successfully, the other was not. The issue that was resolved was the price: the counter tried to charge me a rate 33% higher. When I showed the agreement from Kayak, the person needed to call management to give me that rate. Eventually they did. The issue that did not get resolved was the type of vehicle. They had economy and SUV's on the lot...I paid for an intermediate. They chose to downgrade me to the economy instead of upgrade. The vehicle was also dirty on the inside and outside.
Pros: New car - great. (somehow it didn't handle well - something about the wheels or if now it is made cheaper than in prior years) of course there is nothing Avis or Kayak can do about that.
Cons: There was absolutely no help- other places bring the car to you and preheat or precool it for you.
There was no snowbrush or icescraper in the car - (good thing the snow was very light and fluffy)
Even though the car is very reliable - this one was brand new
and felt as though the wheels were not gripping the road or that the wind was blowing the car very easily. (toyota carola)
