Excellent Customer ServicePros:I found out at pickup that the rental KAYAK reserved for me was not for unlimited mileage. This may have been because I was a local renter and my trip would have cost me an extra $100 based on the mileage rate. The Budget customer representative noticed this and went out of his way to get me unlimited mileage at Budget's rate which was only $5 more. This was so much better than a previous experience with Advantage where I was forced to buy their rental insurance just because I was a local renter which added almost $300 to my bill.Cons:KAYAK did not specify that the reservation was not for unlimited mileage.Reviewed 26 Sep. 2017

Cons:Prepared to be nickeled and dimed. Gas tank showing well above full, but they can squeeze a little more in? Charge. Return a few minutes late? Charge. All of course within the Terms and Conditions that you sign when you rent the car, but up to you if you want to do business with someone who is going to take every possible opportunity to squeeze every cent out of you as you can.Reviewed 19 Oct. 2020

Cons:Had to switch the first car because it had not been serviced and needed an oil change. The second car ended up being low on wiper fluid. Staff was super nice and helpful in making the switch.Reviewed 24 Dec. 2020

Pros:At first glance I liked the size of the car but it could have been cleaner. There was something pink underneath the back seat which left a would get gross when the car got warm. Basically only liked the size of the car.Cons:The back tires on the car were both bald. I literally slid into oncoming traffic Thursday night when it was raining with my son and two nieces in the car with me. I couldn’t figure out why the car sounded so loud, but once I seen the tires I understood. We were in town for a family members funeral so I had a lot on my plate. I truly never thought I should have to inspect the car for safety issues before pulling it off the lot. I’m extremely disappointed and upset by my experience. I also had ever charge added to my car rental once I got to the air port. My final bill was a complete shock and I was disappointed with being taken advantage of. As I said I was here for a close family members funeral so my emotions have been everywhere. When I sign up online for a care with an idea for a price and then return it for basically double after I was put in a vehicle which was dangerous I’m an extremely unhappy customer. I also had to stand and wait to talk to a manager. After waiting and watching him walk past me I literally had to call out to him for him to actually speak with me for literally nothing more to be addressed. I’m appalled by the way I was treatedReviewed 29 Oct. 2019

Poor customer servicePros:Budget is located on-airport in Austin. it's still a bit of a walk for sure but it beats a shuttle bus to a remote locationCons:Counter agent was awful from the get-go. Not sure what was angering her in life but she made a point of taking it out on me. Four of us traveling for a funeral - I reserved a Ford Fusion sedan car or similar. No sedans left so she told me my "similar" options were a truck or mini van since they are" similar". I disagreed that a truck or cargo van aren't similar to a sedan car, which only turned her cold attitude into lousy. When I asked more info about the mini van it turns out to be a 12 passenger CARGO VAN. Not doubt in my mind whatsoever that she purposely misrepresented it as a "mini van" in the hopes I would just taken it and leave. I told her no on the truck or cargo van. So she said I could get a Ford Excursion SUV but she would NOT wave or reduce the $50 upgrade fee. It's evident that woman should not be in a customer-facing role. Not one ounce of politeness and she was manipulative. she could not have cared any less about making sure I was a satisfied customer.Reviewed 25 Nov. 2015

Hold on my bank account for a one day rental??????Pros:Car was okay.Cons:Well, I rented a car for one day, which I was told the cost totaled around $180 for the day, plus I got renters insurance. I was charged for that AND I then had a charge for $477 on hold in my banking system for almost a week now. I have NO CLUE what this charge is for and I am very angry about it! I paid for the rental, I dropped it off on time in good condition and the gas tank was full. I have tried to resolve this issue for a whole week now and all I get is a different story from everyone I talk to.There is no reason at all that Budget should be holding MY MONEY from me. This is unacceptable and I will not use you business ever again.!Reviewed 14 Mar. 2016

Cons:The line to pick up the car was over an hour wait. There appeared to be one employee to help a line of 30 or more customers. We cancelled our reservation and went with another company.Reviewed 21 Apr. 2021
