Misleading salesperson and quotePros:Quick drop off.Cons:Our rental quote didn't include any of the airport fees, which add up quickly. The front desk lady that we had did not explain things like the gas option well and was actually misleading by saying there weren't any gas stations around the airport so we should take this option for our Calgary to Canmore trip. She said the gas was charged at 92c/litre but didn't mention that we pay for a full fill regardless of what we use. In the end, our quote of $110 turned into $220 which I just would've liked to know upfront.Reviewed 29 Dec. 2018

Terrible ExeriencePros:NothingCons:I made the appointment to pick up the car at 10am and called the morning of our pickup to make sure it was ok for my husband to pick it up since the reservation was under my name. When I made that change they went ahead and changed my reservation to 11am without asking me so when he arrived at 10 they said they couldn't release the car until 11 so he waited. At 11 they told him they didn't have the car there and would have to bring it in from another location so he waited another 30 minutes. Finally at 11:45 we got our car, it wasn't what we reserved but at that point we were grateful to have any car so we took it. Then at drop off we couldn't find a gas station ANYWHERE near the airport (we looked for one within a 15 minute drive) so we had to drop it off with half a tank or risk missing our flight. We werecharged $120 to fill the tank and the guy even said "yeah there's no gas stations around here but there's nothing we can do about that". There is though, it's giving us a heads up on that when we picked it up. All around it was a terrible experience.Reviewed 24 Oct. 2017

DisappointedPros:Almost nothing. I mean the car was clean. But it was a rough drive. especially just being upset at what I needed up paying I'm just thoroughly unimpressed overall.Cons:The woman I picked up the car from was super rude. And offered no help when it came to the pricing indescrepancies. I was quoted $169 for 1 week. And walked out paying upwards of $380. That's A HUGE price difference 'insurance' or not. It should be included in your quotes when making a reservation instead of tricking people and making them think it will be a good deal. I was outraged. And when I called in to speak with someone they kept rerouting me to the location it was picked up at and speaking with the same rude woman I picked the car up from, who would after 10 minutes, barely let me talk to the manager who was also a rude. Terrible experience. No help offered or reasoning, nothing to resolve the issue. Or even an apology. Which goes a long way.Reviewed 17 May 2017

Jut dropped off "Truck" at airport so no real issues with that.Pros:Rental drop-off area was easy to find.Cons:When I made my concerns known at the Budget counter in the airport they told me my only option was to call a number as opposed to helping me on the spot. Do not expect to have much success on the phone, as opposed to being in person, to address my issues.Reviewed 10 Dec. 2018
