5.2 OkayFeb 26 2019
Pros: because i had to rent it ....due to my cheaper rental being rented to someone else - the Rogue was roomy.Cons: Don't give my vehicle to someone else due to me being and hr. late. I can't afford the higher price Rogue but I had no choice. When I rented the cheaper vehicle online I was not allowed to change the pickup time to later than noon.

2.0 MediocreJan 24 2019
Pros: Nothing no help to possibly fix my situationCons: Could’ve done something besides turn me away from a booked car rental because I only had a prepaid American Express. Everything went great online but got denied at pickup after a 35 dollar Uber ride to Avis. Then 120 round trip Uber to visit my daughters. The rental was suppose to cost 50 bucks

10.0 ExcellentJun 7 2017
Pros: The lady at the SAN Antonio budget location was awesome. I will rent a car from her again.
8.0 ExcellentMay 25 2017
Cons: I'm used to airport locations that are obviously staffed with more people so this non airport location wad out of the norm for me. Staff were friendly and professional here but I ended up leaving probably half an hour later than I had hoped for. Aside from that I gave no complaints... decent vehicles at a decent price
10.0 ExcellentApr 15 2017
Great ExperiencePros: Quick check in/out, helpful employee who went above and beyond! The prices were also excellent.
10.0 ExcellentMar 4 2017
Driver seat too close to steering wheelPros: All else was ok
7.2 GoodJan 19 2017
Cons: Location picked was not the one I anticipated and was closed when I wanted to get car. Had to call next day and have reservation reassigned to airport location(additional airport fee) but convenient. Extra charges kill you.
9.2 ExcellentNov 21 2016
Drop offCons: They need a better way to drop off the car. My flight was at 1030 am, showed up at 9am, but they did not open until 10am. I had to wait until they opened and rush to the airport.
5.2 OkayNov 4 2016
ask questions BEFOREPros: the counter rep was kind and helpfulCons: i didn't need to spend $200+ for rental AND $125+ to park....cab fare would have been WAY better. Who knew?
6.4 GoodOct 27 2016
dropoff needs to be addressedCons: This location opens at 5am. Flights out of SAT begin at 6am. That is too small of a window to catch the shuttle back to the airport and still make a 6am flight.
8.0 ExcellentAug 12 2016
Pros: Nice ride. The location I picked up the car has new cars/suvs. I pack my car for free
2.0 MediocreAug 9 2016
Wrong pick up locationPros: I've rented a car to be picked up at the San Antonio airport. Turns out the car I got was to be picked up in town. No transportation to the car or double the cost to pick up at the airport. I went to another company at the airport and got a car at a much more reasonable price. Thank you Budget.

4.4 OkayOct 28 2018
Took too longPros: I liked the car and that is was easy to drop off. I also was thankful that I was able to leave my vehicle there overnight. Honestly, the workers were very friendly.Cons: What ruined the experience for me was the wait time for the Elantra. What’s the point of reserving a vehicle at noon when it’s not ready when you get there 4 hours later. I showed up with my kids and with a little bit of flexibility in my tight schedule to pick up the car. I was told the car wasn’t on site and that it would take 15 minutes to be ready. I didn’t leave in the car until almost an hour later. If the manager would been honest about the time I could’ve left and made better use of the time. Instead it put me behind and i ended up getting a car that was rushed and also talked into some charges that I clearly explained I didn’t want because I already had coverage. I signed the paperwork anyway because I didn’t want to keep going back and forth with the worker. Anyways it changed my mood for the day and put me behind for an anniversary dinner I had with my fiancée and that’s enough for me never come back to the location. I really value my time.
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2017
stay at the airportPros: The girl at the counter was very friendly and helpful to all the customers at the pick up location. She offered that I could drop it off at the airport for free to save us the trouble of transporting all my luggage back over to the airport rental station and then into a bus to get to the airportCons: Car was dirty and they marked it as a full tank when it was one bar down on the fuel meter. The airport location was very hard to find. I regret using any non airport location, because the service and the cars are not the same.
10.0 ExcellentApr 3 2017
Pros: The gas mileage was good .Cons: The car reaped of cigarette smoke the whole time and had dog hair inside but all over the trunk it was gross to put our bags in there. We are not smokers or dog owners we should not have to adjust our comfort level for this or pay to be in this type of condition.
