Oct 20 2015
Pros: Counter person seemed genuinely concerned and apologetic about my treatment at LAX and went out of her way to contact LAX office to see if they found my drivers license which apparently wasn't returned with the rental papers by the person at the Budget lot exit at LAX
Cons: Nothing

Excellent 9.5
Pros: Easy to book, very quick pick up and return. Great value and flexibility, we were able to do a one way rental to a different airport for a fraction of the cost any place else. Car was great, new, clean, comfortable and fun to drive.

attendant was very nice and accommodating
Pros: The attendant was nice. She made what could've been a bland business transaction a personal experience.
Cons: Nothing really. Location I suppose, but not much can be done about that

Very helpful
Pros: The reps at Budget SBA were great! Very helpful and accommodating. We had to change our rental dates a couple times and they made sure we got the best rates without having to ask.
Cons: Car had to be exchanged because of unknown mechanical issue. This was done easily. Budget phone operators were difficult to manage reservations with. Stick with the reps at SBA directly!

Pros: Excellent assistance at counter. Great to have counter open at that location Sunday. Please keep doing this as other car rentals are closed in downtown Santa Barbara
Cons: Your off-shore 800 number folks are hard to understand when you call to ask a question about rentals.

Not what it seemed - guy plugged in too many extra
Pros: Van was great, pickup was convenient, price seemed good, Drop-off easy
Cons: So day rate meant additional charges, including mileage and hours. That wasn't mentioned in the booking online. I bought the insurance through Kayak's site, but the guy said it was useless, should have bought avis insurance and tried to tack it on.
