10.0 ExcellentJun 15 2021
Pros: Staff friendly, fast and convenientCons: Lower price
4.0 OkayMay 17 2021
Cons: Too much time spent up selling. At 10pm, I want to pick up and move on. Not stand in line while others face up selling and I rehearse my lines to address my own up selling. Even pizza carry out was closed by the time we reached our accommodations...
10.0 ExcellentMay 11 2021
Pros: The staff was very fast and friendly at the pick upCons: Better signage and directions for return of the car would be more helpful and have made for a better experience
2.0 MediocreApr 15 2021
Cons: Let’s start with professionalism at check in and continue with providing a safe automobile to customers. Last time I will rent from Budget
2.0 MediocreApr 9 2021
Pros: Drop off very easy.Cons: Given tire that was very low in pressure. Given car with gas tank not full but then charged for returning with less than a full tank. Pick up location was very slow.
10.0 ExcellentMar 27 2021
Pros: YesCons: No suggestions
10.0 ExcellentMar 22 2021
Pros: Yes especially at pickup the staff was super helpfulCons: Nothing great value easy pickup and drop off
8.0 ExcellentFeb 28 2021
Cons: I was charged 3 times the amount quoted for the week. Very dissatisfied.
2.0 MediocreJan 21 2021
Pros: Not muchCons: I reserved the convertible mustang one way to Miami from Port Charlotte. When I arrived, they said "we do not have that type of car." They put me in a jeep compass. I got 10 miles down the road and the tire pressure indicator light came on. I stopped - flat tire. I called the rental office and they said "call road side assistance on the key chain - they will either come out with a new tire or new vehicle" I called. They said it could be a couple hours. They also said they would not deliver a new tire and that a new vehicle would take 4-6 hours. I had an appointment. I changed the tire to the doughnut (note: the new Jeep compass does not have pedal or lever activated emergency brakes - its an obscure button and "park" is not sufficient to keep the SUV from rolling!) - I gave them the address that I would be at for my appointment, they said they could not be there in my time frame. I called the local office back and they told me to call national. I called national office and they said to call local. Local finally agreed that when I brought the vehicle back I would get a replacement. I had been on my way to Miami and had to back track 30 minutes to do so. Overall loss of time was about 2.5 hours due to poor maintenance and poor customer support. Add this to the issue of them renting a vehicle not in stock and I will never use Budget/Avis again.
2.0 MediocreDec 29 2020
Cons: We could not pick up the car because it was rented find my mother who provided her card at the time of rental reservation. We had to Uber home

10.0 ExcellentMay 3 2021
Pros: The customer service is always excellent!Cons: The rate could have been less expensive but it is what it is!
6.0 GoodMar 5 2021
Cons: I was told I count rent a truck, but there was no truck available, so I had to rent a CARGO VAN!! I did not appreciate this!!
4.0 OkayAug 11 2020
Pros: reserved a car for a Thursday pick up and a Sunday drop off. For a Sunday drop off I was given the choice of the CVG airport or Montgomery Rd. I chose the Montgomery Rd location. Sunday morning went to look up the address and the google page said it was closed. Called Hertz customer service and they assured us we could do a drop off there. Drove an hour to the location, its closed, big sign on door NO OVERNIGHT DROP OFFS. Called customer service, they said take car to the Kemper Rd location. Got to that location sign on door THIS LOCATION IS CLOSED FOR REMODELING. Called customer service again, they couldn't help, transferred us to roadside assistance. We were on hold for 55 minuets and they just hung up. Called the Montgomery Rd unit on Monday, they said they would not count the vehicle as checked in until they could spare someone to go to the second location and bring the car back.Cons: Every part of this experience could have been better, except the price, the price was good
10.0 ExcellentMar 17 2020
Pros: All was goodCons: Everything was eady
10.0 ExcellentFeb 8 2020
Pros: Yes the lady at pick up was wonderful!!Cons: You all need a bigger signs for drop off. And better signs in the back of the building as to where to enter after you drop off. I can figure it out but the older generations may not. Tad bit confusing. You one tiny sign blow over in the back of the building. Just an idea for you ;)
7.2 GoodFeb 5 2020
Cons: Have someone bring rental to me. Hard to find and poorly lit parking area. Not well marked.
8.4 ExcellentFeb 4 2020
Pros: The staff were very friendly given it was the end of the day when we picked up our car.Cons: The overall impression of the physical space was that at any moment you could get up and leave. It was so sad, run down, it really looked like no one cared about this office.
4.8 OkayFeb 2 2020
Pros: Ease of getting the carCons: I did not get the car I wanted. Also, when I dropped it off there were no people around to help drop it off properly. I didn’t know who to talk to or even that I just dropped the key in a box. Very confusing.
10.0 ExcellentJan 25 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful, drop off was easy, and the SUV was a perfect option for usCons: Nothing it was great
7.2 GoodDec 10 2019
Pros: Friendly staff and very fast drop off. Ended up with an upgrade because the vehicle type I had reserved needed an oil change.Cons: Pick up took over 30 minutes even though I was helped immediately

2.0 MediocreOct 26 2020
Pros: Have other apps. Don’t use Kayak. Impossible to call to customer service. No any information. Terrible service. All the time.Cons: Don’t use Kayak service if you don’t want to get problems.
2.0 MediocreOct 26 2020
Pros: I ordered Toyota Camry. When came-they told doesn’t have that vehicle. I ordered again same car with expensively price. Has confirmation. And got Hyundai. Dirty, broken...Cons: Not recommended use Kayak for everyone. They let me down third time already. Stupid service.
2.0 MediocreAug 12 2020
Pros: The kid behind the counter was nice, as he told me I could not rent a car.Cons: Maybe let people know when they rent a car that if they are picking it up from an airport that they MUST have a credit card in their name to rent it and that a debit card DOES NOT work. That's kind of important information!!! That way they don't get stuck there with 2 small kids who were scared they'd never get home for hours and have to have their elderly mother drive 3 hours in the middle of the night to pick them up to drive another 3 hours to get home by 4 am for the kids first day of school that morning. Luckily she was able to or we might still be there as there were no Uber drivers in the area and a cab would have been $300 for us. If you are going to REQUIRE something, you need to make sure people know that!!!!
