Pros:Budget was able to come up with a second car for us, which was helpful with nine (9) in our traveling party.Cons:Somehow in the online reservation process with Kayak, the reservation for the 2nd vehicle we needed was "lost", so we were desperately trying to get a second rental as we traveled to Hawaii. They did upon arrival, HOWEVER, the cost was DOUBLE what the cost was for the first car!!! Definitely feel we were "ripped off" just because of our situation. Pretty sad when you pay over $2,000 for 6 days for 2 vehicles and yet we paid approximately $4,500 for 6 nights in a house for 9 people. There's something very wrong with this -- I think Budget is making big bucks off travelers!! Quite sad!!Reviewed Jan 7 2017

smaller car than expected, use AAA instead if youCons:"standard" car was a buick verano which is much smaller than the toyota camry that was standard on oahu. we locked our keys in the car and called budget customer service and asked for help but they didn't send any info for over an hour, so we called and cancelled and called AAA instead. today over a month later i got a notification that they charged me $55 for the roadside service that I NEVER USED. I will be calling to complain and get my money back. it's ridiculous that they don't keep good enough records to show that i didn't use the service and nobody ever actually showed up. AAA charged me nothing (I already had a membership which costs $49 a YEAR) and was much more responsive than Budget.Reviewed Nov 28 2015

Efficient pick upPros:Easy check in process upon arrival and shuttle came quickly to escort us to our car. The shuttle also dropped us back quickly to the airport after returning the car. We invested in a Ford Explorer SUV which was great with 4 large suitcases being easily accommodated.Cons:When we dropped off the car the staff member outside was not particularly friendly or helpful.Reviewed Sep 19 2016

Cons:I brought the vehicle back full. However there was an automatic fuel charge added. The staff member at car check in told me it was automatic and there was no way he could take it off. In order to get this removed I had to wait in line again at the counter.Reviewed Dec 26 2017
