Cons:Having the vehicle I reserved. I reserved a SUV and when I arrived at 3:30 they only had 2 vehicles available (compacts) , I refused to accept either one and had to wait and hour for the next suitable vehicle a full size sedan to be returned, fueled and cleaned. Budget and I was lucky that I didn’t slice open the oil pan or dropped the transmission on the rutted and rocky dirt roads to my destination of Cerritos Beach north of Cabo. That office needs more inventory of vehicles with basic safety features like back up camera, blind spot warning or any sensors period not available on even their premium vehicles. Then replace some of the indifferent and drag-*ss employees who contributed to the hour long wait!Reviewed 9 Nov. 2019

Listed for $4 a day. Actually $56 per dayPros:The car was decent quality.Cons:When picking up the car we discovered that mandatory $32 per day liability insurance and fees turned our $44 10-day rental into a $560 10-day rental. That's a huge difference. When I told the nice man at the counter that the listing was deceptive he said that he knows: "I spend all day explaining this to people." It turns out that there was no choice - we had to pay the price or not get a car. Moreover at the last minute other car agencies were charging as much or more. Adding insult to injury, the windshield was dangerously dirty, and the car was not full of bad as they claimed - after just three miles the guage ticked down from full to 7/8 of a tank. My advice: go to another company, read ALL the fine print, and call to see what the actual drive-away price will be.Reviewed 27 Dec. 2016

Never, ever againPros:The airport shuttle driver was friendlyCons:A complete scam. The office did not honor our reservation. They claimed we needed additional insurance per a new Mexican law. They would not accept the insurance verification I had and would not provide us with the wireless access code to show additinal online proof. The Budget employees said the only way our confirmation/reservation would be honored was if we attended an info session on a hotel in town! Two men from La Vida then gave us a map and told us that Budget would waive the $300+ insurance fee if we came to their resort. I was shocked, but acknowledge every country has different business practices. We did not have this experience at National and were not charged a fake fee nor duped to attending an education seminar. Other patrons in the Budget office said this also happened to them. Unacceptable. Please do not waste your time or energy here. Staff was very, very unhelpful.Reviewed 26 Apr. 2017

Add 3x the rental cost in MexicoPros:New car Pickup was pretty easyCons:I rented a car for $182 USD for a week in Cabo San Lucas. When I arrived, I was told that I must purchase a $500 insurance policy (required by law according to them). Found out that it's not really required (the required part they have to have on the vehicle anyways), but it's a good idea, but that my credit cards offers better protection. Considering I didn't take the $5/day rentals, and they didn't mention anything about this insurance like all of the other $5-10/day companies, it was a really bad surprise on the first day of my vacation.Reviewed 2 Jan. 2017

Beware the insurance scamPros:Following what I beluved to be a good deal booking through kayak with budget, I was told no insurance had been purchased, not even the lowest possible option, nothing at all. I found this hard to beluved however they were very insistent and when they came to calculate the insurance the difference was negligible between the highest and the lowest but doubled the cost of the car rental. I did not get the car I ordered although it was suitable for what I needed and the guy knew nothing about the car even telling me the fuel I needed was not the correct fuel for the car and only the man at the fuel station saved me from putting the wrong fuel in. Bad experience with these crooks.Reviewed 21 Dec. 2016

It was a total SCAM.Cons:We traveled from California to Cabo San Lucas with 3 other families. We all booked separately with Budget, Payless .. and all got the same SCAM deals. They shuttled us from the airport to a nowhere location with nothing around in the area. Then they told us that we are required to buy $400 insurance on top of our $300 rental fee. Then they offered us a discount if we would attend a time sharing presentation. If we don't take it we have to get our own transportation. We all walked away from the deals and took taxi back to our hotel and booked through hotel agents for transportation. I think KAYAK should be dropped off BUDGET from the car rental provider list.Reviewed 6 Jan. 2017

Gougers! All was misrepresentedPros:Nothing. I really try to look for the good.Cons:Price changed from $165 to $560 due to mandatory insurance. Even though Visa told me the day before that they would provide full coverage in Mexico, everything that I would need for insurance.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2017

The quoted price is not the real pricePros:convenient to the airportCons:they charged what appeared to be an arbitrary amount for insurance of $60 per day for coverage or $38 per day for limited coverage and said it was compulsory. Additionally, they said coverage from other sources would not work. Hence, the cost per day tripled from what was quoted on the website. In addition, the car had some damage, the tank was only half full and they suggested we tip them.Reviewed 28 Dec. 2016
