The associate behind the counter was awesome. The car had a terrible smell and was very loud. Not sure if it was the tires or the drive shaft. Definitely had a hum to to it.Reviewed 25 Jul. 2022

Very rude attendant when returning the vehicle. He should find another line of work. I unknowingly pulled into a empty return lane and he threw his hands up into the air. He then pointed a red light into my eyes to signal me to change lanes. I changed lanes and parked the vehicle. I exited the vehicle. He scanned the sticker and said my first name and then said “all set”. That was the entire conversation. I can spend almost $1000 somewhere else next time.Reviewed 18 Jul. 2022

I’m fed up with agents pushing extras without being transparent about cost. He asked if he should activate the toll pass without telling me the fee. He says this way you won’t have to pay cash when you go though a toll and tells me there’s unmarked toll roads everywhere. When inquired about how it worked he glosses over the $11 a day and tells me there’s toll roads everywhere. I didn’t drive on a single toll road so I’m grateful I turned it down. Agents should be telling people upfront what things cost and what they actually do. Integrity and Trust if you want to keep customers people!!!!!!!!!!!!Reviewed 12 Jul. 2022

The pick up of the vehicle was rather seamless. Although, they said they cleaned the car, I doubt that. It's possible that they have limited time to clean it after the last person uses it. My rental smelled of cigarette smoke and had cigarette burns in the driver seat. I wiped down the inside of the car completely with my own wipes and sprayed a refresher spray. It was so dusty. Also, I understand that everyone is trying to make a buck, but at the counter, the lady tried to tell me that buying prepaid gas with her was the same as at the pump to fill up the tank before I dropped it off. She tried to charge me $85 for a full size SUV. When I went to the pump, it only cost me about $50. Glad I thought to do it myself. Other than this few things, it was a good price, cheap.Reviewed 24 Jun. 2022

90 + minute wait to pick up in Tampa. Lots of staff, simply not enough cars. Car ordered was replaced by a smaller model. We were told it was a complementary upgrade to an SUV. Smallest model offered. Toyota Camry was our choice as we had 3 people over 6 feet tall, offered old, small Nisan Rogue. Car damaged with scratches and stone damage on the body work. Would not use Budget again.Reviewed 29 May 2022
