Pros:Budget was able to come up with a second car for us, which was helpful with nine (9) in our traveling party.Cons:Somehow in the online reservation process with Kayak, the reservation for the 2nd vehicle we needed was "lost", so we were desperately trying to get a second rental as we traveled to Hawaii. They did upon arrival, HOWEVER, the cost was DOUBLE what the cost was for the first car!!! Definitely feel we were "ripped off" just because of our situation. Pretty sad when you pay over $2,000 for 6 days for 2 vehicles and yet we paid approximately $4,500 for 6 nights in a house for 9 people. There's something very wrong with this -- I think Budget is making big bucks off travelers!! Quite sad!!Reviewed 7 Jan. 2017

smaller car than expected, use AAA instead if youCons:"standard" car was a buick verano which is much smaller than the toyota camry that was standard on oahu. we locked our keys in the car and called budget customer service and asked for help but they didn't send any info for over an hour, so we called and cancelled and called AAA instead. today over a month later i got a notification that they charged me $55 for the roadside service that I NEVER USED. I will be calling to complain and get my money back. it's ridiculous that they don't keep good enough records to show that i didn't use the service and nobody ever actually showed up. AAA charged me nothing (I already had a membership which costs $49 a YEAR) and was much more responsive than Budget.Reviewed 28 Nov. 2015

Poor Car ChoicesCons:After waiting 30 min in line to get car the so called full size car a Fusion had no trunk space due to battery. "Nothing else available" so next choice for our group of 5 was luxury BMW at more than twice the price. The designation of full size cars is apparently meaningless.Reviewed 2 Aug. 2017

Insanely expensiveCons:Car was all scratched up and not in good shape for a 2013. Not sure I got the correct size car that I booked. Extremely expensive.Reviewed 27 Dec. 2018
