I had a 9:00 pick and I waited a hour for them to come and open the place. So After the hour I went to enterprise and rented a car for cheaper and same day. I also had to get Apple to get my refund because I paid for insurance and after call several different people no one would give me my refund for the insurance. So Apple got my refund since I paid for the insurance with my apple credit card.Reviewed Aug 3 2022

Reserved a car, confirmed it was the reservation was at the airport two days before, arrived and was told that my reservation was at a satellite spot. I would need to get a taxi, Uber or Lyft to go there to receive the reservation rate. Paid $235 more. Not happy.Reviewed Apr 30 2022

Unpleasant rep at counter; no staff in pickup lot to report damage on car prior to taking; no rep to check in car on return; a poor experience all around. I will never rent from Budget again. It’s not worth it.Reviewed Apr 30 2022

The pickup inspection sheet missed a large dent in fender and large scratch on another fender. The drop off site was not prepared for the number of vehicles that were returned at that time. Lots of confusion and conflicting directions from the garage attendants.Reviewed Apr 17 2022

They cancelled on me 18 hours before my reservation. I had to pay $300+ for a flight instead.Reviewed Apr 16 2022

They could have actually had a car for me at pick-up. They didn't and the person working the AVL counter was not helpful...basically presenting a "you're out of luck" attitude coupled with the explanation that Budget was causing them to have a hard time too. They eventually had a vehicle for me, but the 5 or so hours between was spent on the phone with customer service trying to understand my options for getting a vehicle with another company (which I was unable to do because the car class availability didn't match and they would not honor a different class reimbursement) while also scrambling to try and find an alternative way (flying, asking a friend to drive 11 hours roundtrip as a favor) to my destination, which was for work. It was incredibly stressful and I felt stranded and uncared for. Plus, my earning income depended on me arriving to my destination. It was like I should have assumed renting a car was just a MAYBE...I had no idea that when you reserved a rental you might not actually get to where you needed to go.Reviewed Apr 6 2022

Reservation was confirmed through Budget, but on arriving to town no cars were available and staff was rude and unhelpful.Reviewed Apr 2 2022

Terrible experience picking up the car. I was surprised to learn that our car was not at the airport, we had to take a ride share to another location 25 minutes away. Then the vehicle wasn't available for several hours, despite having a confirmed reservation. The staff were not transparent or friendly with us or other customers whom we overheard.Reviewed Mar 28 2022

The car had a flat tire that I had to air up and a check oil level light that I had to purchase oil to top up twice because it was so low on oil. The car got me to where I was going but I was worried the entire five hour drive that something else would go wrong because of the condition of the car when I picked it up.Reviewed Mar 9 2022
