Horrendous Overall ExperiencePros:Car was clean with the exception of one bag of chips that was still in there from the previous renterCons:Horrible customer experience. Waited 2.5 hours for my car and did not get the car I rented. Also, I asked to prepay for the gas, but was charged over $9/gallon upon my return. When speaking with customer service they explained that they couldn't do anything about it because it wasn't on my contract (admittedly my mistake for only skimming my contract after waiting there for 2.5 hours). After speaking for a while with them, they knocked it down to $6/gallon, but said they were unable to go any lower and that my horrible rental experience had nothing to do with the gas charge and that there was nothing they could do further. They also rejected my request to explain to a supervisor what had happened. Will never rent from Budget again.Reviewed Sep 12 2016

HellCons:When I got to the budget office in Cambridge, MA I found their location had moved that which was printed on the reservation. No one picked up the office number. I called main Budget number and they sent me to another address that did not exist. Then they were going to send me to another place but would not honor my reservation quite. What was $178.00 became over $600. It took me 5 hours of walking around Cambridge, MA before I finally found someone to rent me a car. It was HELL, HELL, HELL.Reviewed Oct 28 2016

Will not do it againCons:I was punished by picking up the rental late. I was ended up with triple charges. Budget said the reservation was made through a 3rd party, while Kayak had no customer service agent I could speak to.Reviewed Jun 15 2016

rental experience not what we were hoping for.Pros:drop off was ok.Cons:We were not given the car we reserved. We were given an "upgrade" which we didn't like. The check out woman was not helpful at all, and didn't care that we got the wrong car. She was not too helpful in explaining extra costs. Also, they wanted to charge extra for use of the transponder, which is almost impossible to not use in the area we were in...nothing was said about this extra cost until we were at the rental car place.Reviewed Sep 11 2016
