Pros:I never received a confirmation email and they charged me an extra $200 because THEY got my reservation wrong. I don’t know how to dispute this but it definitely sucks :/Cons:Customer service could’ve had more understanding, they could have tracked my reservation by name and not number (because I didn’t have a confirmation email they didn’t honor the correct reservation, only the incorrect reservation made over the phone by Jesse (agent on phone) and were so unkind on the phone I literally cried. Before the drop off location debacle, they didn’t even have my kind of car (economy) available at the location even though I booked beforehand so they charged me an extra $26/day to take the one car they did have available, but they said it was $25/day. And then the counter agent didn’t tell me the dropoff location was same as pickup. So when I reviewed my contract the next day and saw it was wrong, I had to call customer service, at which point they charged me a total of $345 for a reservation that was $48 when I walked in to get the car just 1 day before. It was a mess, I’m so stressed out from this, and not having a confirmation email REALLY contributed to that stress.Reviewed 8 Jun. 2020

Handled with CarePros:I was traveling with my elderly mother and when we arrived to return the car we were told they would provide personal direct transportation to our air carrier and did not need to take the shuttle. This was an outstanding serviceReviewed 28 Jan. 2016

Cons:Broken ez-toll pass. Found that out 2 hours into my trip when I attempted to pay a toll. Budget told me to pay and kee my receipts. Well apparently you can't pay because the ez-pass was paying all the tolls. ]So even though I didn't open it it was still activated therefore I'm charged for the device everyday I had the rental. Calling my local budget and the 800 number was ABSOLUTELY no help at all. Second it rained...I pull off and water is running i to the car from the fron windshield. TOTALLY NOT WORTH $493.00 that I paid. However I had to get my daughter back to school t a certain time so I had to SUCK IT UP!!!Reviewed 25 Aug. 2020

Cons:Walked up to car it had all 4 windows down. Drive away and turn up the heat to the wonderful smell of pot from the previous renters. Smelled like a giant skunk sat in the back seat the entire tripReviewed 12 Dec. 2017

I expected better from BudgetPros:Nice enough staff.Cons:I reserved a car that was supposed to carry 5 passengers and 3 pieces of luggage. There was only one car available with so little leg room in the back, it would only have fit one person sideways and the trunk only one bag, so I was forced to upgrade. Facility seemed understaffed. Slow pick up and drop off.Reviewed 26 Sep. 2017

Can't get out of their own wayPros:They stayed open late to accommodate flight delays. I landed at 1:10am and the driver picked me up shortly after I got out of baggage claim and I got the car relatively quickly.Cons:Weather was a huge problem during my trip (on both legs). My flight home got canceled and the only way to get home was to fly out of Providence instead of Hartford. I called budget to see what it would cost to drop the car off in Providence (~70mi) instead. They wanted to charge a $200 (maybe $250) drop fee. I told them that I could rent a new car for $94. Instead of making an exception they made me drive to Hartford (30mi out of the way) to return the car I had and pick-up a new one. When I got to the rental office the line was long and it took a long time. Once I finally got the the counter the woman told me that was stupid, closed out my old reservation and gave me a new one under the cheaper rate without making me change the car. It just added ~2hrs to my already shitty morning and long travel day.Reviewed 8 Apr. 2017
