Pros:Staff was the best!...provided special arrangements to accommodate our late arrival needs, which was much appreciated...can't say enough positive things about them!Reviewed 14 May 2021
review fromkayak
Cons:The rental counter was closed when our flight arrived. Our reservation was for 8pm. Rental counter closes at 7...on a Friday night...when there were reservations and flights still coming in. Poor practice to operate like this. We were only one of many from our flight in the same situation. We had to cab to the hotel and back again in the morning. There was also no snow brush/scraper in the car which was covered in snow and ice when we we picked up the car the next day. The car smelled of heavy smoke. Overall miserable experience.Reviewed 22 Feb 2021

Pros:The car was niceCons:The Car selections were very limited, no options to be exact, kayak needs to let customers know they cannot use a debt card at airport terminal car rental places. I paid more for a midsized vehicle for 1 week than a full size from the same companyReviewed 1 Oct 2019

review fromkayak
Pros:Not much.Cons:They rerouted me to another rental provider because they don't staff their own desk. There were people in back that didn't come out to help so I had to wait for a long time with other customers. The return lot is unstaffed and not well marked. Took way too long.Reviewed 7 Aug 2018

Smooth transactionPros:The sign was clear at budget to see personal at Avis but there was one gentleman waiting at the counter. The staff are avis were friendly and efficient. The car was clean and well maintained. Checking back was easy. However, had to be specific that the tank was full because they automatically charged for gas even though I did not choose the prepaid option.Reviewed 24 Feb 2018

Top tips for hiring a car from Budget in Lansing

  • Unlike many other places in the United States, when booking a Budget car rental in Lansing, you only need to be 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. However, under-25 fees may apply to young drivers, and you may be restricted in the type of car you can drive. Check with your agent to see if these fees will apply to you and if there are ways to help alleviate these fees or bring the cost down, such as a good driving record or a full auto insurance policy on your personal vehicle.
  • Since Lansing is located a bit farther away from other main Michigan cities you may want to visit, like Grand Rapids or Detroit, you may want to consider a compact, hybrid, or economy car for better gas mileage. While SUVs may offer more room for your luggage or passengers, a smaller vehicle can help you save by not using as much gas, particularly when driving on Interstate 96. Consider traffic as well as the time of day when visiting bigger cities, as places like Detroit can become very congested. Traffic may also become congested in Lansing from time to time, depending on Michigan State University events like football games.
  • When booking a Budget car rental in Lansing, don’t forget to join the Budget Fastbreak Program, the company’s loyalty program. This can make picking up and dropping off a breeze by helping you skip the long lines and get to where you’re going faster, and best of all, it’s free to join. You can also score quality deals from Budget by joining the program, which will save you time and money.
  • If your rental journey plans include crossing the Canadian border, Budget car rentals in Lansing can help with that. Just be sure to let them know you plan to leave the country with their vehicle and confirm it’s OK with them. While most insurance policies will cover you in the US and Canada, it’s important to check to be 100% certain.
