8.0 ExcellentSep 4 2020
Pros: Friendly and accommodating staff.Cons: I don’t know if there’s a way to incentivize other renters not to smoke in the cars. That was an issue that came up for me.
10.0 ExcellentJun 27 2020
Pros: Aron the manager is an amazing manager.Cons: NA
4.8 OkayNov 4 2019
Pros: The staff at the Gold Star Blvd location was excellent, drop off was easy.Cons: I had a reservation for an SUV, but they didn't have one. Stuck with a minivan, had to exchange it at a different location the next day.
5.2 OkayDec 10 2018
Pros: Costumer serviceCons: Couldn’t take the car I originally wanted because #1 Strong smell of cigarette #2 Tire was worn out
10.0 ExcellentFeb 13 2018
Pros: Both the Worcester and Westboro MA offices did an excellent job taking care of my needs and requirements.Cons: Would prefer if the rental cars had a full tank of gas upon pickup. Much easier to fill up properly when returning the car.
2.8 MediocreJan 1 2018
Filthy carPros: Counter service was super nice and apologetic the type of car I reserved was unavailable.Cons: The car I reserved was not available. Three new Subaru's in the lot would not start so I was given a just returned Nissan Versa. The car reeked of throw up and when I stopped down the road to fill up the gas tank which was on empty - I then saw the entire drivers side of the vehicle has throw up from the drivers window all down the car - now frozen in the lovely weather. It was a long ride from Mass to New York in a puke smelling tiny car.
7.2 GoodNov 15 2017
Well located, good desk person, pick-up was botchedPros: Good worker on the desk. Threw in a break on fuel policy to compensate for the clueless driver sent to pick me up -- basically at the hotel across the street from the rental branch!Cons: Pickup driver got lost and delayed the delivery, so I was late getting to the reunion (for which I had traveled hundreds of miles by train!)
8.4 ExcellentJun 14 2017
Good servicePros: Staff was polite They answered all my questionsCons: the car was not very clean. It smells smoke.
8.0 ExcellentMay 13 2017
Pros: The cleanliness and comfort of the car. I didn't feel like I drove such a long journey. It was very comfortable.
9.6 ExcellentMar 10 2017
They gave my car away but they made it up to mePros: I was late for my reservation so they assumed I wasn't coming and thus gave away my car. However, they got me a new car and upgraded me for the inconvenience so it wasn't too bad. Maybe next time just shoot the customer a phone call to make sure they're not coming.

2.0 MediocreJul 23 2019
Pros: Nothing - I was unable to make the rental because the hours of the rental car location were a lie.Cons: The online hours listed for Budget Car Rental say it is open until 7 pm. However, when I arrived at 4 pm, there were no employees there. I waited for an hour, but no one showed up. I called the location, & it said "all of our employees are busy" - the store hours are a lie.
8.4 ExcellentJun 30 2019
Pros: Easy pick up, nice car.Cons: There was no one at the counter mid-afternoon to receive my car. I waited for 20 minutes and then left my Budget key in the dropbox even though the box was only marked for Avis, not Budget.
4.0 OkayOct 27 2018
Smiling Can’t Hurt That MuchPros: Ease of dropping off the car. Simply pulled into the lot adjacent to the terminal, parked, and dropped keys at counter.Cons: The agent’s attitude when I mentioned that I was expecting a discount for returning the vehicle with more gasoline then when I picked it up. He immediately said that was not possible; even though, I was told differently by a Budget representative when I called the company’s customer service line earlier in the day. He also did not seem interested in my concerns regarding the cleanliness of the vehicle I noticed shortly after picking up the vehicle.
2.0 MediocreAug 13 2018
Unable to drive the carPros: NothingCons: The car given to me had very bad brakes and I was unable to drive the car. I took it back the next morning and they refused to give me a full refund for the car. It wasn't even the car I had intended to rent! The service was horrible at the counter and they didn't even have the car I wanted to rent. The customer sevice with Budget has been awful. I am still fighting to get my refund for the one day I did not even drive the car!!!

8.0 ExcellentJan 9 2018
Good price for a decent carPros: The car was clean and the price was very fairCons: We left something in the car and due to weather we could not get in touch with anybody until 36 hours later. Not necessarily Hertz fault but was nerve racking. It would have been nice if the store manager could be reached through the main number for some reassurance.

4.4 OkayNov 7 2017
Way overcharged thanks to Kayak reservation system...Pros: Staff at chosen location was friendly & pleasant.Cons: Prepaid for 2 day rental on Kayak, but ended up only needing it for one day. However, the charge wasn't adjusted whatsoever, meaning I paid literally twice as much as I should have. ($112 for ONE day?!) What's more, the employees I dealt with at pickup/drop-off had NO answers or ways to fix it. Due to this ridiculous error, I will not be using (nor recommending) Kayak again in the future.
2.0 MediocreOct 21 2017
Cons: I didn't like the accident that I got into that forced me to rent a car. It was very inconvenient, as now I have no legs and cannot drive a car at all.
4.0 OkayApr 19 2017
Pros: THE OPPORTUNITY AND AN UPGRADE I WAS ABOUT TO RECEIVE.Cons: DUE TO CARD PROBLEMS AND OTHER ISSUES I WAS UNABLE TO FULFILL THE RENTAL EXPERIENCE, THOUGH NO COMPLAINT ON SERVICE OFFERED.

Top tips for renting a car in Worcester

  • A Worcester car rental will give you the freedom to explore all that there is to see and do in the region. It will permit you to see and do more off the beaten track without being dependent on local transport. Car rentals in Worcester will give you the convenience to step beyond the city center and take a number of easy drives to explore the area, such as Newport in Rhode Island, or hug the coast and stop in at coastal towns like Cape Cod, Gloucester, or Rockport. The nearby Berkshires are another fabulous visit a close drive away. You can also take a spin down to the Boston harbor to eat seafood, sightsee, and enjoy the history of the city for the day. You can even drive further north and check out historic Salem.
  • If you plan to fly into Worcester, you’ll arrive at the Worcester Regional Airport (ORH). Regardless, the Worcester Regional Airport is a great place to pick up your car rentals in Worcester, as it is roughly a 10min drive to the city center. Simply proceed to the car rental counters, which are located in the main terminal on the lower level of the airport. The international Boston Logan Airport (BOS) is another great alternative as there are sometimes more flight options and the airport is under an hour away. The Boston Logan Airport car rental center is located on Tomahawk Drive.
  • While driving in the city of Worcester, take note of and approach carefully busy intersections and stop signs, as some have potentially hindered views. Also, drive carefully around pedestrians around the Southwest cutoff and cyclists around the Seven Hills cycling routes.
  • Rush hour in Worcester starts at 6:30am and is usually cleared up by 9:30am. Later in the day, roads start getting congested around 2:30pm until about 6pm. Interstate 290 experiences the worst congestion, so avoid driving on this major highway if possible during these peak times. If you’re on a schedule or catching a flight, keep these times in mind when planning your route. Worcester gets considerable snow in the winter, so be sure to practice safe winter driving practices, such as trying not to drive during a blizzard, making sure to clear snow and ice from your windows and lights, leaving a good amount of space between you and other drivers, and braking early.
