Easy and ConvenientPros:Was able to pick up the car right from Queenstown city center. Everything was explained to me in detail and u was on my way quickly. Dropped off at Greymouth train station which is incredibly convenient as I was taking the tranzalpine. Was a great experience from start to finish.Reviewed 22 Aug. 2017

Awful experience - rude, unhelpful desk person, noCons:Our flight came in late and we missed the pick up window. I emailed Budget to let them know, but this message didn't get through to the rental location. When we picked up our car, the woman was not very friendly and said we missed our window and it was given away. She said they had no cars left for us. She did not give us other options of where to rent or what to do in this situation. She did not show sympathy either. Do not rent from Budget. We went with Europcar in the end. They were nice and had a great car for us (and their counter was right next to the Budget one).Reviewed 27 Feb. 2017

Pros:We just dropped off our car in Queenstown, didn't pick one up, so not much to really report in the "like" or "dislike" columns that hasn't already been said.Cons:Maybe would've been useful to have some signage with instructions since there was only one staff member around and I didn't want to interrupt him only to find out I didn't need to do anything other than drop the car off and deposit the keys.Reviewed 24 Feb. 2017
