I would rate everything as excellent if it weren'tPros:The car was great, clean. Wish the pickup and dropoff were separated in the assessment. The former was bad at the airport but great at the car pickup place. Dropoff was also greatCons:The long wait at the airport at the counter. After flying for about 11 hours (not counting the wait for flights and connections) it is really hard to wait for almost an hour to check-in at the counter. Also, when finally checked-in I was told my card was declined whiich I felt strange as I just had used it at the Duty Free shop at the same airport. While the clerk cancelled that transaction and I handed her the other card she told me I needed a windshield insurance (which I never heard of); regular insurance doesn't cover windshield damage according to her. Last night I realized I was charged twice, once in each card. I felt cheated - paid far more than originally toldReviewed 7 Jan. 2016

Got SCREWED - Don't rely on Budget Car Rental.Cons:Our flight was delayed from LA to Brazil. When we got to the rental car desk late they had canceled our reservation. Lucky for us the rental car kiosk Localiza, next to Budget, was open and matched the Budget price.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2017

Please notify of difference in foreign country renPros:Counter staff were extremely helpful and prompt. Pickup and return was easy (once I actually had a reservation). Even extending my reservation was not complicated except for the fact I had to return to the airport to do so!Cons:Upon arrival I was informed that reservations in Brazil are only good for one hour after the reservation time. My car was rented to someone else. I had to take a taxi to the hotel, call and make another reservation and take a taxi back to the airport the next day to pickup the car. Budget would not honor my previous reservation. Due to increased demand, I was charged more for my new reservation than the reservation the counter gave away the previous day even though my rental would now be shortened by a day. Extending the reservation could not be done online or even by phone, I had to return to the airport counter to extend my reservation.Reviewed 20 Jan. 2016
