Pickup time was Sunday at 12 noon. Arrived 12:02. Guy said we closed at 12 and wouldn’t give me rental. Customer service sent me to another location guaranteeing vehicle. Drove to this location to find no rental to meet 7 passengers. Drive to inconvenient third Budget location and had to pay more. Needless to say, extremely late to destination because lazy worker at first location would not give me the keys. He was very rude as well. Pathetic customer service. I will never rent from Budget/Avis again.Reviewed Feb 13 2024

Budget called me at 10:30am (1.5 hrs before pick up) and let me know they didn’t think they’d have the kind of van I needed, that I reserved. I had to call 2 more times for updates , they didn’t call me. And I gave up. I never received a cancellation or a call to let me know they weren’t able to provide my reservation.Reviewed Oct 8 2023

I wish I would have known someone smoked in the car before I rented it. I’m sensitive to smoke and I would have chosen a different vehicle.Reviewed Oct 4 2022
