Hit with huge fees at the end that were not communicated originally. We're disputing them now so we'll see how that gets resolved, but currently I'm dissatisfied with Budget Rental Cars.

Open and closing times are not as published. No way to get a hold of budget or the rental office at YHM to confirm the hours of operation. There is a key drop box, but I am highly sceptical of this as if you are close to drop off time how do you know you won't be over charged?
