TERRIBLE! After landing waited 2 1/2 hours in line to be waited on. Tried to give me a car when rented SUV, finally got it-was dirty inside. Talked in to getting prepaid tolls, never was on a toll road. Told agent where was going and he said should do the toll thing-huge mistake. By time everything was done I was in the rental car place over 3 hours!! Will never rent from budget again!!!!Reviewed 27 Sept 2023

I had to wait in line for 1.5 hours to pick up my car. They ran out of the car I reserved so I had to accept a larger vehicle and spend more on gas.Reviewed 26 Sept 2023

2 and 1/2 hours in line to pick up the car. Impossibly long. Unacceptable.Reviewed 25 Sept 2023
review fromkayak
My only annoyance was a "change oil required" message on the dashboard. As it turned out the car had been recently serviced but the computer not reset. Unfortunately, we couldn't find this out over the phone so had to waste half a day of our holiday going to the nearest Budget location. Otherwise, we were very happy with the car. Message to Budget: make sure the car's computer is reset after servicing!Reviewed 19 Sept 2022

Pros:Pick up AWFUL! Drop off was easy.Cons:PICKUP: It took 2 1/2 hours to get my car due to the LONG line at the Budget rental at SEATAC. Budget was the ONLY car rental place to have a line. Too few people working the desk (it varied from 1 to at most 3 people). Plus, a long time per each customer (averaged 15 to 20 minutes each. I timed it)Reviewed 12 May 2021

Pros:yes, but the car sent messages that that the engine needed service. We were in the middle of our trip from Seatle to Processor Washington. We were in the middle of public forests. We continued at slower speeds onward to Processor for my brother's funeral. It made a bad situation even worse. We feared being stranded and missing the funeral. We finally reached Processor. We contacted Avis/Budget at the Pasco airport. We drover out to Pasco and exchanged cars. We eventually returned their car to the Seattle airport' At this time I am not sure what will be the total charges for both cars. I did not need this additional grief due to Avis/Budget renting us a defective, not serviced, automobileCons:A well serviced reliable automobile Francis Giles Schroeder 4329 Saint Cloud Way Cleves, Ohio 45002 513-451-3410Reviewed 28 Apr 2021

Pros:The workers tried to help.Cons:Their rental desk in Seattle was closing at 1 AM, but I was not made aware of this during my rental, so I almost missed the opportunity to pick up my key. Once I had my car, I was unable to leave the parking lot since the barricade/gate was across and the power was somehow turned off to that portion of the exit. I sat in my car for nearly an hour while the staff and security worked to find a key or way to manually remove the barricade or find another way out of the rental car area. Eventually power came on and they were able to release me and my rental car at about 2 AM.Reviewed 17 Feb 2021

Cons:Pickup and drop offf experience was terrible. Constant attempts to overcharge for the rental from saying the website didn’t calculate the right taxes to be changed a fueling surcharge at drop off even though I fueled the vehicle before return. Attendant didn’t look at the fuel gauge and questioned me about where I fueled but did refund the surcharge when requested. At pickup the Budget counter wasn’t even open (went through Avis) and the agent had to manually enter rental info because I wouldn’t accept paying $50 dollars more for the rental due to what the agent said was a website miscalculation of taxes. Vehicle was clean, comfortable, and ran trouble free.Reviewed 27 Aug 2020
