InsurancePros:My pick up was at MSP airport. There are two rental car terminals. My reservation was made for Terminal 2, which I wasn't aware of. I expected only to be one rental location. I went to Terminal 1 not knowing the difference. The agent was able to get me squared away without me having to go to the other location.Cons:The agent tried to upsell me on insurance. Made me wonder if the insurance I elected would cover the entire car, in rental speak "just walk away". I had some concern about the limitations of the coverage. It would be a better practice for Kayak or the partner site to use the same language that the rental car company uses so that there is any confusion and to do so as the reservation is being made. Find the car was not easy. Since I didn't upgrade the car or the insurance as the agent wanted, he was less than helpful in helping me navigate or find the vehicle.Reviewed Feb 15 2018

Pros:The service rep who helped me close out our account at the end was wonderful. I feel bad that he has to work in a place that seems to have so many screw ups.Cons:Waited in line at counter for 45 min to pick up. Had to go back to main desk to find anyone for drop off and discuss charge problem. I wasn't informed when I picked up the car at the airport that I was at the wrong location. I questioned the pick-up rep as to why the final price was $50 more than the quote. He said to call customer service later on. I did after leaving with car, they let me know I was charged $50 due to going to the wrong location. Had I been told that, we would have shuttled over to the correct pick up spot (very close to the airport). Rep at end helped sort it all out at the end.Reviewed Aug 12 2018

Mixed reviewPros:The car itself functioned fine, & was adequate for my needs.Cons:The car was dirty inside. From this experience, I learned to be very careful to note the pick up location for your car when you book. I had intended to book a car right at the airport. My pick up location required that I take the Light Rail out of the MSP airport. The airport signage for the Light Rail is confusing - I was not the only person having trouble finding the Light Rail. The off site Budget location should offer a shuttle to their facility. The drop off process, at the airport in MKE was smooth.Reviewed Jun 29 2016

Pros:It was comfortable and started when it was 20 degrees below zero. Check in and check out was quickCons:They charged more than the reservation stated and the first vehicle had a "check engine" and "maintenance" light lit. It makes me not trust them because they are not paying attention just washing them and sending them outReviewed Jan 15 2018

After a long flight, waiting in line is a dragPros:The GMC Terrain was a fine ride.Cons:A 35- to 40-minute wait in line for pickup. When there are only two clerks working and both are stuck with complex or problematic rentals, everything grinds to a halt. At least one person behind me bailed and went to a next-door no-waiting agency. (Eventually a third clerk appeared and things started moving.)Reviewed Aug 22 2017

Budget ?Pros:The team at the pick up desk was friendly. Return agent in terminal 1 was friendly. Car performed nicely.Cons:The car was clean, but smelled of chewing tobacco. They ran out of compact cars just as the women was selecting the car. I was forced to up grade at the upgrade price. I should have been given the same rate. Things weren’t clear as to one line for all so I stood behind a guy getting his car. No one said anything until another customer piped up and asked if the roped area was for all. I lost my place in line and the compact car. The return was stressful. After driving around I wound up in terminal 2. The budget guy told me I had to go to 1. Was not helpful. A security guard was far more helpful. Overall not the best experience. 300.00 for having a car for around 26 27 hours is no budget!Reviewed Nov 15 2017

Cons:In fine print budget included insurance besides damage insurance (which I was told about at the pickup counter and declined) for personal property totaling some $30 per day I would had declined had I been told about like the damage waiver It is true that I had the opportunity to read the contract in its entirety but as a practical matter no one does which I presume is why the Budget rep did NOT make those personal insurance charges known to me. people should be told about these charges so they can opt out of themReviewed Mar 29 2018
