Mediocre Premium Class and Lots of Up-Selling at PickupPros:The car was fine mechanically. Very clean when we picked it up. Drop off was quick and easy.Cons:This was the least luxurious Premium class we've ever rented. No heated seats and the car had navigation but they had taken out the memory card so it didn't work. They didn't have our quoted rate at check-in and had to put in a discount to match the rate. Check-in took 40 minutes so they could try to up-sell us to Luxury class and CDW, etc.Reviewed 19 Apr. 2017

Cons:Worse than average rental car gouging. Reservation was for car from 9:30am to 9:30am -- exactly 9 days. Total base price was approx $216. However, adding a second driver, whose only effect on Budget was to reduce chance of accident from driver fatigue, raised total price to about $368. We arrived at pick-up a few minutes early, and were logged in at 9:12am. However, we were given a defective car and the process of discovering this and getting a replacement car meant that we really didn't have our car until after 9:45. Our return receipt shows that the car was returned at 9:49 (19 minutes late), although at least ten minutes of this time was waiting for agent after we arrived. Bottom line -- we actually had use of our rental car for a few minutes less than 9 days, but we were charged for TEN full days days -- that is, approximately $40 more than in our original agreement -- because they calculated that we had it for 9 days and 0.6 hours. Previous experience with Avis, last year. Declined all extra insurance coverage with clear oral agreement at rental counter, but didn't read contract carefully and missed that I was being charged for it anyway. This almost doubled price of the rental, and Avis was adamant in refusal to correct the mistake -- or deliberate deceitful and exploitative behavior? -- of their counter agent . Budget/Avis - a good company to avoid!Reviewed 14 Jun. 2017

Long wait times to retrieve carPros:Clean car and nice customer service once we were finally helped.Cons:They need better signage informing customers that Avis and budget are one and the same. Stood in line for Budget for an hour waiting on the one and only attendant to check us in to our vehicle. Also still not sure if they will charge me for gas since they gave the car to me almost empty and stated on the agreement it was full. Nobody goes to the car with you to confirm, I did take a picture but I still feel like it’s my word against there’s. I’ll update this if I was overcharged from the original estimate due to them charging for gas they didn’t give in the first place.Reviewed 30 May 2018

Difficulties with reservationPros:Making a reservation was easy, prices quoted looked great.Cons:I couldn't change the name on my reservation, and had to cancel the original and make a new reservation in order to accomplish this. My confirmation email was never sent to me, and the actual price at the counter appeared to be more than my reservation price. I also tried to reserve a midsize SUV, but ended up getting a Volkswagen golf (which is supposedly a size larger than what I reserved.Reviewed 10 Jun. 2018

Easy check in, friendly staffPros:The check in was easy, no waiting. Was able to upgrade with GPS, which was the best decision.Cons:Signs to get to the check in and check out were not posted well. We spent too much time trying to find the correct place. The car had too electronics that took control of the car at times, causing unnecessary stress.Reviewed 20 Oct. 2018
