Pros:check in and out was easyCons:Requested non smoking. But the vehicle was smoked in and sprayed heavily to remove smoke smell and the that smell (of the spray) was not gone for the entirety of the rental.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2020

Cons:Two things bothered me. The lady at the rental counter insisted that all Houston tollways require EZTag (or one of those automatic toll tags), and even though I said that there should be ways to give cash or changes made, she said that that was not possible. I'm not from Houston, but go there maybe once every six months, and I was still surprised. But sure enough, all toll booths on Beltway did have humans there for changes made. The other thing is that she sort of insisted that I buy a full tank of gas from them beforehand. I was returning the car to Austin, and it was only about 180 miles, so with a compact Ford Fiesta it should only take about 6 gallons, but she kept on saying I would use up the full tank in the trip. I declined and sure enough I had used only about 5 gallons. They try to sell these things to unsuspecting customers - quite annoying.Reviewed 28 Jun. 2017

Thieves at BudgetPros:NothingCons:I left a couple coats and hats in a car by accident that had an airbag malfunction so I asked to be placed in a different vehicle. When we were moved to a different vehicle we forgot to grab those items. We called within 30 minutes of realizing and spoke to a budget employee who said thatbshe retrieved our items from the first car and would put them in lost and found. Come Monday we went to get our stuff from lost and found and it was not in there. And noone could seem to figure out where it could have gone.Reviewed 18 Oct. 2016

Paid 25% more than booking.Pros:The people at budget were friendly and helpful, its not up to them how much the rentals cost so I can't blame them.Cons:I told the woman assisting me that I didn't need any insurance- that my insurance covered everything. Then when I went to sign for the car, it is on a little computer terminal so you really can't take the time to read the contract (especially because they're rushing you through it). I booked online for $158 and my total was almost $200. When I asked why she said it was because of tax and asked for my final signature. Later when I got home and checked on my reservation it said that tax was already included in the $158. I opened the tri-fold that they had given me and they had tacked on insurance that I didn't want and rushed me through signing so I wouldn't notice before it was too late. $158 was already too much to rent a car for 20 hours, $200 is a scam.Reviewed 20 Jun. 2017

Pros:Hertz rental and pick up process was very easy.Cons:The car was filthy. I was nervous to rent in the time of Covid anyway. I wiped the entire car down myself with wipes, but there was food down the side of the seats, dirty Kleenex in the door, melted fruit roll ups in the back seat pockets, and a peach pit in the cupholder. I tried to call hertz twice and spent more than 30 minutes on hold both times and never got to talk to anyone. I was very disgusted especially during Covid that the car we rented for more than $2000 looked like that.Reviewed 24 Aug. 2020

Be carefull with tye drop out locationPros:If one is travelling to airport and needs to drop the vehicle while returning make sure you get to the right drop of point. As there are a couple of offices for each rental company. But once dropped one have the option of travelling to airport via shuttle which runs right from there to all terminals.Reviewed 23 Jan. 2018
