Pros:Drop of was easy enough drop keys and parking ticket in a box as no one at the counter again. Refund of our 3,000,000 pesos deposit still pending a day later. Avoid this company like the plague.Cons:We waited 2.5 hours in Calama airport for someone to appear @ counter. Despite booking a large SUV none were available. We were finally given a manual dual cab pickup. Luggage for 5 people had to go in the open tray. A few days later the brakes failed. Lost 1/2 day awaiting new car with 1/2 tank gasReviewed Apr 8 2019

Showed up and they didn't have a car for meCons:I reserved a car so me and two buddies could go explore the Atacama desert. Showed up at Budget to pick up my car and the guy says "yeah I know you have a reservation but I don't have a car for you." No one else in the city had a car that we could rent either so our entire trip got flushed down the drain because of Budgets negligence. NOT recommended.Reviewed Jan 30 2017

Worst customer service ever.Cons:They told me they had no cars available despite my booking. The customer service lady then said one of the other operators at the airport had a car and she would be in in an hour so to wait. We waited for 90 minutes and when the lady arrived she said they didn't have any cars either. The Budget customer service representative didn't even apologise or care. An absolute joke of a 'service'.Reviewed Oct 15 2017

Pros:They referred me to another companyCons:The company was able to see my reservation in their computer, but were unwilling to honor it. They said that they only hone reservations made more than 48 hours in advance. I am concerned that I will be double charged, as it required a credit card t secure my reservationReviewed Jun 2 2019
