No car, no regundPros:Online booking process was easy.Cons:Flight was delayed to Cartageña, Budget gave away my booked car and had no ther cars when I arrived. I have purchased insurance through the website which was non-refundable and cost me a lot of money. So basically I booked the car and turned up at the airport with nothing but an insurance bill and no car. Customer service was terrible.Reviewed Sep 12 2016

Renting a Budget compact car in Cartagena, ColombiPros:Fairly simple, friendly check-in process. No line (when we checked in). Car was clean, filled with fuel, got out of the airport parking lot with no problems. Rental return was also simple process. No hidden surprises or costs.Cons:Car's engine needed a tune-up. Took 15-20 minutes to warm up. The engine responded to the accelerator only after 1-2 seconds. I could have asked for another car, but would have required walking back to the office from the parking lot and probably redoing paperwork, so I took a chance. Worked out okay. I signed a credit card blank in case of "any fines" obtained while driving the car. The person checking us in might have explained better to foreigners that cameras are set up occasionally on the roads to photograph speeders (even 1 km/hr over the speed limit, apparently), and these are billed up to 4 weeks later. Just a warning would be appreciated.Reviewed Nov 28 2016

Reservation?Pros:There was absolutely nothing to like about this experienceCons:I had a reservation but by the time I got there they were closed. I went back the next day and there were no carsReviewed Nov 21 2017

Pros:First they require a $1000 dollar deposit for your rentalnwhichbisnt stipulated anywhere on the site or after making reservation. 2nd...the car initially had AC and after about an hour after driving off, the air turned off and never turned back on. I was already in route to Barranchila and couldn't turn back. This truly ruined our drive as we had to endure the heat for our extended ride. I returned the car 1 day early and explained to the budget rep the situation and he refused to refund the money for the extra day that I chose to not keep the car. Shady business practices and they forced me to buy the local insurance although I explained to them that my AMEX Platinum covered the insurance. I would never go back to Budget Cartagena. Never ever.Cons:Get rid of this budget rental office. They run it like a extortionist renegade franchise. Truly making my experience with budget one to never want to rent a car again from. They should redund the day I didn't use the car.Reviewed Dec 16 2019

Budet Colombia needs to get it togetherPros:I rented 2 cars with Budget, one in Bogota and one in Cartagena.The only positive was the staff in Bogota not even Cartagena they are lost.Cons:- Cars I had reserved were not available had to get an economy car - Cars were dirty - It took over an hour to pick up both in Bogota and Cartagena. Colombia might be a third world country but the tourism industry is growing, do yourself a favor an invest in computers, a decent network and some extra cars. - Had to wait an hour at drop off in Cartagena because again the system was too slow. - Treat everyone the same. In Cartagena a customer that was friends with the desk girl got to go pick his car before doing paperwork. We had to wait so long I almost feel like charging you for the 5 hours you took away from my vacation. - When we landed in Bogota the Budget office which is no longer at the airport never sent someone to pick us up, we had to walk to Hertz to get them to call Budget. - In Cartagena I called in advance to let them know we would keep the car for an extra day, they insisted I cut my trip short because they only had a few cars. What kind of business are you running? - In Cartagena also, during drop off, after waiting for too long to sign the closing of the contract after my payment was processed I told her I had to leave. She made a copy of my credit card which I insisted she be careful with. Days later I found out they charged more than what was agreed. LESSON LEARNED USING ANOTHER COMPANY WHEN I GO BACKReviewed Apr 29 2016
