Pros:Not much.Cons:On the website, I had reserved a standard-size SUV. When I went to pick up the vehicle, they gave me one that I was not familiar with but which I soon learned was compact SUV. I did not have time to go back and complain, but it made our entire trip a bit harrowing, and I feel like I was ripped off by Budget. This felt like a bait-and-switch scam. When I picked up the car, it was clean, but it had that horrible "new car smell" in it that is really disgusting, especially for someone who has allergies. I ended up having to light a match inside the vehicle in order to subdue that grotesque smell. When I went to drop off the vehicle, the entrance to the Budget drop off location was closed and it pointed me to Avis. This forced me to backup in the wrong direction on a one-way street. There was a tiny sign at the Avis drop-off location for Budget but it was not visible unless you stopped at the Avis drop-off location and looked for it. Overall, this was not a pleasant experience and I cannot recommend either Budget or Kayak.Reviewed 16 Oct. 2020

Pros:Guy in the booth was nice.Cons:Loaded car up and drove off only to find they put the wrong car in the wrong parking spot. THEN AVIS Budget group has done this repeatedly. You drive less than 75 miles and THEY AUTOMATICALLY ADD A FUEL CHARGE, even if the guy at returns notes that you filled the tank. Most people won't complain and you will spend hours trying to resolve this with their Call Center, the Social Media Group and then the Executive TEAM, JUST SAVE TIME AND AVOID BUDGET AVIS AT ALL COST (or be prepared to be ripped off and spend hours needlessly.)Reviewed 22 Jan. 2021

Cheap and convenientPros:The Price is Right, kayak made it easy to do the reservation, but where my flights changed I didn't make a change the reservation. The manager and front desk person took care of it and I went off as a happy customer.Cons:Didn't like the car smell like smoke. It's something I only noticed after I driven off. And there were a couple of Maintenance items that should have been taken care of. Sometimes cheap is what you get.Reviewed 10 Dec. 2017

Overall OK. It could be better experience.Pros:Staff's willingness to resolve the problem Great ratesCons:They did not have mini-Van despite reserving it week ago and confirming over the phone an hour before the pick up. During return, their system showed that I had driven 4000 miles in 60 hours. If I had not gone for unlimited miles, I would be in trouble. I lost 20 minutes during return because of their system goof up.Reviewed 5 Apr. 2016
