Pros:everything went perfectReviewed Dec 3 2020

Cons:I had originally reserved a Dodge Caravan (or similar) to move a friend and her belongings from Florida. When I arrived in Florida, I was told that because I was under the age of 25, I could not rent the van. I had previously rented the same type of van the week prior with a different company and my age had not been an issue. In addition, I had entered my age on the Budget website when reserving the van, and there was no warning or popup that said my age would be an issue when picking up the car. There were only three people at the service counter for both Budget and AVIS. The service people at the counter were unhelpful and said there was nothing they could do. The car that I was given was much smaller, and was slightly dirty with food crumbs under the seats.Reviewed Jul 27 2020

Horrible experience with Kayak & Budget avoid themCons:Despite searching & renting from JAX (exact airport code) thru Kayak and being told "use rental counter at airport" on booking, once I got there they told me this rental had been reserved from some Chilli's parking lot 40 mins from airport that would be closed before I could get there and they could only give me a rental for over 60% more $ than agreed to ($300 rental with reservation number they could give me for $733 !!!!???) The staff was extremely unhelpful and I will not be using Budget or Kayak again. Just FYI I was able to secure an on the spot booking with Alamo at the airport instead for a much more reasonable cost no thanks to Budget or KayakReviewed Feb 24 2017

Pros:Line wait at airport was reasonable. Agent was friendly. Got a free upgrade. Car was very nice. Return was efficient and quick.Cons:Agent initially said we had a one-hour grace period upon return without getting hit with an extra charge. We were 17 minutes late but only later discovered we were hit with a one-day extra charge. Had to call and challenge this on the phone before that extra charge on my charge card was refunded.Reviewed Aug 21 2020

Pros:Nothing was goodCons:This was by far, the worst rental experience we have ever had. Upon arriving at the rental counter, we waited over 2 hours just to get to the counter to get the vehicle. There were only 2 associates working, and one left about an hour into our wait. After we finished the paperwork, we were instructed to go to the garage, and wait for our vehicle to be valet driven to us. We waited another 30 minutes there to get the car, while countless people who were behind us walked right out, and got their vehicles. We rented car seats with our rental, and one of them had several spider webs. We will never rent from here again.Reviewed Oct 3 2020

Jacksonville Budget rental service didn't have a cPros:Customer service was helpful and they are adjusting my rental fee down to the mid size fee vs the. Full. Budget in Naples was good with the return.Cons:When I arrived at the poorly marked Budget location to pick up my car, I was told there wasn't one. The clerk said he called me & I asked when and he said "before during and after". I had no record of any missed calls on my phone, no email, no texts. He had nothing to offer me. When I pressed him further, he said he did have a mid size car(I had paid for a full) & I said fine I'll take that. He should have offered that immediately. He then charged me the same fee & said he couldn't adjust it down.Reviewed Mar 16 2017

Cons:There was NO STAFF at the rental counter at 4:30 PM. WHY? People were waiting in a line for NO ONE! We were eventually told to go to the next rental car counter (National? Avis?) and they would help us. Also, I reserved a non-smoking car and got a vehicle that smelled like a pool hall. Nasty. I sent an email (since there was NO ONE at the airport to speak with!) asking how I could exchange the car. NO ONE even bothered to reply.Reviewed Nov 19 2020

Worst experience of my lifePros:NothingCons:This is the worst experience of my life. I picked up my car at 1 am and they told me there were no other cars. Mine was covered in chocolate and smelled like cigarette smoke. There was no windshield wiper fluid in the car. The next day when I called to complain they told me to return it to the two st Augustine locations and get a different car. I drove all the way to both asking to do that. They had no cars. I called back super upset and they said they would give me $50 off the rental. The first guy I talked to extended my rental by a day and said it would be my daily rate of $12 . WHY WAS I CHARGED $443?????? I have never been so upset or horrified. How can you do this? I drove around your unsafe car all week and instead of $50 off you overcharge me $343!!!!! What kind of business is this??!!Reviewed Apr 25 2017

Pros:The price for the size of the vehicle was nice.Cons:Our 3rd row seat broke mid trip and customer service with Budget was horrible. Was on the phone with road side assistance and other areas for over 4 hours and no one could help resolve by getting replacement vehicle. Two reps said good luck since it’s a big spring break weekend.Reviewed Mar 21 2021
