The experience was nice, the associates were very hospitable. The only complaint I have was that the car was not clean on the outside, and I was given a car that displayed, “Maintenance Required “.Reviewed 19 May 2024

Expensive.Reviewed 3 Apr 2024

Terrible, to the extent that I'm never going to use budget again. Our flight was delayed by 12 hours, so the pickup was later then we specified (through no fault of ours). However, Budget charged us ~$700 MORE than the quote we had received. I only noticed this after signing the agreement. When I pointed this out, they said that happens when we're late, and we get the default charge. I pressed them further to honor the agreement and they printed out a separate receipt, writing in the original quote (was actually about $150 more than the original quote, but I was too tired to argue)....with an additional $200 'deposit' that we get back upon returning the car. We returned the car, and still haven't received the $200 deposit back.Reviewed 22 Mar 2024
