Cons:Lots of additional fees added up to way more than expected, in the end it totalled way way more than the advertised rate. Def wasn't for those on a budget. They automatically charged me for a full tank when I brought it back with a bit more than half a tank and I had to bring it to their attention and ask for a refund. Had I not gone into the office because the person in the lot's machine was broken, I would have been overcharged. I also had to double check the bill. Felt like an attempt to squeeze even more out of me.Reviewed Feb 2 2016

Don't even bother trying to call them - they'll nePros:Excellent in-person customer service and great car!!!Cons:I had called many times to try to extend my rental another day and no one ever answered the phone or called me back. And don't forget your personal keys on your rental keychain! I made this mistake and called over 15 times and no one ever answered the phone, and I left multiple voice messages and after a week no one ever called me back! Thank goodness I was local so I drove to the location and they had my keys in a big bag of "lost" keys. I asked if they EVER call people back when they receive voicemails and they just said they're busy. So basically if I wasn't able to pick them up I would have never gotten my keys back! This customer service issue should be addressed because this is an airport rental location meaning most people who rent from here would never get their keys back if they forgot them on their rental car keychain. When I called the general customer service number they said all I could do was submit a complaint online.Reviewed Mar 20 2017

Quick returnPros:Long Beach airport is so fast for rental cars, Easy in and out.Cons:I didn't like that kayak didn't allow me to book the car for a return on Easter. I could only choose to return it on Monday. It wasn't an option. When I got to the Budget return office, I mentioned it to the budget people who told me I could have returned it on Easter even if they were closed by just dropping it off with the keys in the mail box. So I ended up paying for an extra day, even though i didn't need it, returned it the next morning and didn't use it. Had I known that or had the option to return it on Easter when I got home, not only it would it saved me half the rental cost, but it would have saved me another trip to the airport the next day,Reviewed Apr 3 2018

Good Car, Bad Business PracticePros:No complaints on the car, it ran great! The pick-up/drop-off experience is quick.Cons:They admitted to overselling the bargain cars; it really seems like they do that just to get you in the door so they can upsell you to a pricier rental. Also, the expensive insurance they offer through the website is only good for collision (which you only find out about when you pick up the car.....) So yeah, their business practices seem a little crookedReviewed Mar 23 2018

horrible customer serviceCons:I made a reservation for a 10 pm pickup. Our flight got in a few minutes late and they were closed when I got to the counter. It would have been nice if someone from Budget stuck around for a few minutes for us OR let us know that they'd be closing at 10 on the dot ahead of time OR gave us a courtesy call to see if we were on our way. They did none of these things. When I contacted customer service they basically said I was out of luck.Reviewed Nov 26 2016
