Good experiencePros:When I arrived to the location, the type of car is reserved was unavailable so we were upgraded to a Range Rober at no extra cost.Cons:The location is a little drab and doesn't seem to be in good working order. While I was there, a guy had rented a Subaru but that hatch wouldn't work and the lady behind the desk did not believe the individual. Eventually he had to rope it down to head out as there were no other cars. Additionally, while making light conversation, she went on an anti-Muslim rant which was horribly unprofessional and awkward. She was helpful otherwise but it made for an interesting costumer service experience. Lastly, she seemed to be a one lady shop, so the car was not cleaned before we took it (we needed to go so we opted to take it without it being clean and it had already taken too long) but the whole process took about 20-25 minutes and we were only 1 of 2 customers that came in during that time.Reviewed Jun 22 2016

Cons:well, it's my own fault I guess but I did not check ahead of time when the rental place closed and I got there 1 minute after my drop-off which also was the time they closed and they were already gone! I called their # and got transferred to the main hub. I explained to (the kid!) that was on the phone with me and I was told that this particular store was not an "after hours" store and I told him that there WAS a key box on the outside and that I had put my key in there but he couldn't tell me if I'd get charged for another day or not! WTF? There should be some kind of standard for that. Seems to me this kid did not know his job. I regret not getting his name and asking him to put a note in with my rental that I dropped it off in time and that they left EARLY!Reviewed Oct 3 2017

Pros:Anthony was great and very helpful when I picked up the car, Really appreciated his customer service. He was the only one I could reach if I had a question, which was super helpful.Cons:However, I only used the car to drive to do errands one day very nearby and I returned it a day early, and the gas tank was on full as far as I could tell. When I returned it, another man said it was not full and I was very surprised to see my charges jump $20. I did not use it enough to be charged that much more. Also there is NO WAY to talk to anyone at the local office. Calls are sent to the national voice mail and it is ridiculously hard to get any local information without being able to talk to someone there. Thank goodness I was able to communicate with Anthony. But you guys need to make things easier and cut out the surprise extra charges.Reviewed Oct 2 2016

Pros:Nothing. Representative was extremely rude on both pick up and drop off. High pressure sales tactics for extra insurance, add ons and lied about the available vehicles. Wanted to charge me extra for " the only available car" being above the tier I paid for.Cons:Absolutely everything! Rude service.Reviewed Jun 15 2020

Terrible corporate customer servicePros:The staff at the location itself was very great and helpful. The car was very clean, new, and was perfect for my 2 week business trip.Cons:The customer service is set up that you cannot talk to the staff at the location you are renting from. If the local location does not pick up in 2 rings, it goes to an automated "help desk" that is not helpful at all. I got through all of her questions and she said she could not help me. I voiced to talk to a person and she connected me to the corporate office help desk and he had incorrect information about my reservation. Because of that, he could not help me adjust my reservation and made the check-in a headache for the local office staff when I got back. He also let me know they have a 29 minute "grace period" to return my car or there were fees attached. No one let me know that at the time of rental. Likely never renting here again.Reviewed Aug 20 2016

Great car great pricePros:The car was brand new and full of all the new accessories — leather seats, seat warmers, ambient lighting that changes color. It was such a comfy ride to take cross country and worth every penny. The guy at the pick up was intent on getting us a good road trip car. I will definitely choose budget again!!Cons:Nothing! Great experience all around.Reviewed Oct 8 2018
