Pros: Had a very easy experience picking up car. We needed a child car seat and while we had to install it ourselves it was ready to go with no issues. When we went to return the car at the airport it was pouring rain and the gentleman receiving the car saw we had a young child with us said, "don't worry about getting your things out, we will drive you to the gate." That small gesture was such a help to us! Thank you!

Pros: Car was clean, well serviced, exactly what was ordered.

Apr 17 2017
Cons: Waited in line forever, though there were only two customers ahead of me. Car was crappy, exterior scratched up and dirty - Chevy Impala, with no USB port to connect a cellphone, and no keyless entry to the car. Ended up paying double the original quote for a bunch of random charges. Very sneaky. Would avoid in the future.

Pros: The sales rep at CHO didn't try to sell me on auxiliary insurance.
Pros: I liked the car, liked the price, liked the location.
Cons: When I picked up my car, no one explained to me the deposit. It wasn't clear on my receipt, and I wasn't aware of it at all until I checked my bank account. I tried calling the number listed on the receipt to understand and no one answered so I called the 800 billing number. He wasn't clear at explaining why I was charged over $100 more than what was given on my receipt, and was a little rude. I ended up calling the airport and ended up speaking to a really nice guy and he explained it to me better and wasn't sure why I wasn't given a detailed explanation at the time of pickup

Easy for the most part, and straightforward
Pros: Car was clean, ready to go, and the pick up and drop off was easy
Cons: Car had a dent on it that I noticed after I picked it up, and there wasn't anybody to check for damage when I picked up the car nor was this ever mentioned. Granted, I should have looked when I picked up the car, but I'm hoping that this dent isn't pinned on me.

Pros: Car was clean and well-equipped.
Cons: The driver seat in the car was very uncomfortable -- too low for short people. It would have been a bigger problem on a longer drive.

Good In-Transit, Poor in Pick-Up
Pros: Car was clean
Great Gas Mileage
Plenty of Space for a small car
Cons: Reservation started at 8 am. Got there at 8:04 am. They didn't have the care ready till 8:30 am - which caused me to be 20+ minute late to the event I got the car for.

Budget Rental UVA Move In
Pros: Toyota Siena was very roomy, easy to adjust, and loved the backup screen feature in super crowded college move-in environment
Cons: Not really Budget's fault, but the drop off at Charlottesville Airport is geared for folks flying in and out of area, so had no place to park car, and returning keys to Airport terminal was not clearly marked
Pros: The staff at the Charlottesville airport were efficient, courteous, and nice. The car was ready, clean, and comfortable. (Be aware that if you rent an Enterprise car there you need to go to the National Counter. There is only a small sign to indicate that. I had to ask.)
Cons: I didn't care for the car's handling and performance. I didn't expect a super car but the steering on the Dodge I received was very loose to the point it felt a bit unsafe. Otherwise the car was roomy and comfortable for my six foot, 200 pounds and got decent mileage.
Nov 15 2015
Pros: Staff are efficient, clear, friendly.. Thanks for the upgrade.
Cons: Couldn't figure out how to,use all the bells and whistles without reading the manual. Needed to find the security guard to help 3 adults figure out where the drop box was. It was underneath a bunch of envelopes
