Don't Trust Customer ServicePros:Got a much larger and more useful vehicle for essentially the same price as a regular mini van rental.Cons:Spoke to two separate customer service reps to verify that my age (24) would not prevent me from receiving the vehicle I had reserved. Was told that the location I chose would have no problem accommodating me and would allow that. When I showed up to get my mini van, I was told no and had to get the branch manager involved to make an exception. Then they didn't have any mini vans so I was given a 12 passenger van. Not an issue but I had to re-purchase the insurance after I had already paid for insurance on my initial rental, was already too late to have it refunded.Reviewed 6 Jun. 2016

Cons:I prepaid for rental (bid mistake). We arrived. Service desk was closed. Sent to garage. Waited in outdoor line for 30' without any communication from Budget personnel. I forced myself to front and learned they had no car ready. As cars came in, people in line were assigned that car. After 60', I went to Hertz and rented another car and left airport 10' later. Never again Budget. Never.Reviewed 21 Sep. 2020

Cons:The car was filthy upon pick up. Also as I’m driving it, a check engine light has come on. I was also charged a fee for extending my rental days.Reviewed 16 Nov. 2020

Not Happy with Drop OffPros:new car and nice bluish color; easy to pick up car and drop off car (except NO drop off sign that says Budget-I had to park and walk in to ask where to park the car). I'm not happy to spend $100 a day to rent car but it was the cheapest price available so happy about that.Cons:ALL DIRTY WINDOWS, inside perfume smell was annoying, drop off guy had lack of communication and charged wrong credit card becuz he didn't ask me-he assumed I wanted same card charged. I expected he would ask for my charge card and my signature. He credited my account and took a different card but I did not want a charge and a credit on that card. Then the words he used seemed he was blaming ME. He was Not very apologetic at all. Plus he was RUDE to the people behind us when we left the counter.Reviewed 23 Feb. 2017

Budget/Avis at ohare may scam uPros:Clean, comfortable carCons:We reserved a cat from ohare, we picked up the car from ohare and we returned the car to ohare. My quote was 372. We returned the car with no damage and a full gas tank and were charged 722. They claim they quoted me as renting the car from midway airport and then returning it to midway airport. There is no other explanation except they try to rip you off and hope you don't look at the recipt until it's too late. After arguing with a very rude agent for 40 min we got a manager who was professional but clueless. After about 90 min we had to go or else we would miss our flight home. We had to settle paying 480. Over a hundred dollars more than we should have. Have rented several cars before from other services and have never had a problem. Will rent from ohare airport many more times but will never at any location rent from Budget/Avis.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2015
