Be careful!Pros:The car itself - a Hyundai Sonata hatchback- was fine and actually a pleasant surprise.Cons:Despite telling the agent multiple times that I would fill the car with gas myself before returning it, she charged me the $46 fuel service option. When I questioned her on it, she said it always shows up that way, but if I refuel it, it will just get taken off. That’s a very shady practice in my opinion. When I returned the car with a full tank and asked the woman who checked the car in to remove the charge she did, but she also told me not to accept that next time. It’s an option, not a default, and I should not have had to agree to that.Reviewed 7 Jul. 2018

Horrible staffCons:The line to pick up my car was over one hour in a hot humid building. I could see multiple staff chatting with each other while dozens of customers were waiting. When my turn came, they tried to upgrade me to an SUV by charging an extra $60 per day for a total of $297 for two days. I said this was not a reasonable price but they wouldn't listen. I finally cancelled my original reservation and made a new one on my phone for $94 for a bigger SUV for two days. If they had just talked nicely with me, I was willing to pay up to $150. You guys left money on the table and irritated me. I will go back to renting from National. Rosa should not be in a customer facing job. She was very unfriendly, slow and didn't smile once. I realize hiring good people is difficult but she is just in the wrong job.Reviewed 23 Sep. 2018

Cons:I realize it's not completely within Budget's control, but the shuttle between the O'hare terminals and the rental car center is scary as hell during this pandemic. The shuttle buses are packed with people, not all of whom are properly masked. It's a bit silly that the rental car center has erected six foot spacing requirements and glass shields between customers and agents, and that you are doing extra cleaning of your cars, when an airport renter is forced to take a "no social distancing" bus ride to the car pickup where he or she is packed up against others like a sardine.Reviewed 1 Sep. 2020

Overcharged!Pros:It was easy and quick to return the car.Cons:When I realized I would be a bit late in returning it, I call the O'Hare facility and was told I would be charged a $25 or 1/4 of the daily rate. I asked if I could just keep the car for another day and be charged the extra day rate, but was told no. So I drove like crazy to return as quickly as possible, only to discover I was charged the extra day for being 30 minutes late! O'Hare said I needed to talk to Belgrade. Once I was home, I called Belgrade who said they couldn't do anything since it was returned in Chicago. I called both locations, and every 800 number only to be told they could not help me! It was a great car rental until you have time zone changes and traffic that sets you back 30 minutes!Reviewed 20 Jun. 2017

POOR! They charge you more than they claim they arCons:Upon arriving at the rental counter, I told the guy behind the counter that I needed to change the dates that I would have the car. Instead of 3 days, I would need it for 4 days. The agent says no problem - he will adjust the reservation. We go through all the questions with him trying to upgrade me into a different car, culminating with him quoting me a price X for the time of the rental. I agree. Being that I had already told the agent I needed the car for 4 days and not 3, I did not think that he would quote me for 3 days. Upon returning the car, I was hit with a LATE FEE, as well as an additional day (plus all the necessary taxes on these bogus charges). After explaining what had happened to two agents, and getting nowhere...I asked for a manager. The manager on duty summed it up as "oh the agent didn't change the dates. Sorry." CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, BUT ISN'T THAT THE JOB OF THE GUY SITTING BEHIND THE COUNTER??? He said he would do me a favor and wave the late fee. WTF!? This rental experience was bs. Bad customer service on the front end, even worse customer service on the back end. Check your paperwork with these crooks. They are out to get every dollar.Reviewed 14 Mar. 2016

Pros:The car ran.Cons:They didn’t have the car I had reserved. I had reserved a mini SUV. They were out. So I got a Nissan Versa which did not make moving things out of my sons dorm easy. The worst thing was the Plate Pass. It worked only half time. Every time we went through a toll we backed up the line because we needed an attendant. Very very stressful. Since the tolls are gates we had no choice. Even the attendants could only get it to work sporadically. It was all in all- a terrible experienceReviewed 26 Apr. 2021
