Over charged for. Dirty carCons:There was a problem with the booking instead of getting the rate I had booked I was charged a higher rate. I was told that if I don't like the rate they were offering that I should book it on line. When I couldn't find a cheaper rate on line I came back to the counter and the rate went up by another 50.00 for the three day rental. The man that helped me said I should have taken the first offer. I felt like he was punishing me. I had also asked if they offer senior discounts or AAA discount he said yes but I never received any discount. When I dropped off the car I told them there was a leak in the left rear tire and the person looked at the car and asked if I was driving it on a construction sight. I said of course not but it was that dirty when I picked it up. It was never detailed they just gave it to me in that condition. Overalls my experience was poor and the attitude of the counter person was less than helpful condescending and curt. As he passed the other counter person he whispered something about me having to pay more because I didn't take the first offer.Reviewed Jun 14 2017

Pros:Car was a good option, clean and pretty new. No issues with the car.Cons:Pick up and drop-off were rough. Both took nearly an hour due to short staffing. The one staffer at pickup wasn't wearing a mask even as he cleaned the car, which he only did after we showed up to pick it up. At drop-off, waited 45 minutes just to hand over the agreement slip after exiting the vehicle.Reviewed Sep 9 2020

Cons:The car wasn't ready when we got there and the person working there said he didn't have to honor the budget rental. He also said we needed to just wait until a car becomes available. When I asked him how long do we have to wait for. He said 10 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours who knows. Yep, this actually happened. Really bad customer service.Reviewed Jul 26 2016

Cons:Poor customer service at the counter upon drop off. The clerk became rather upset when I didn't have my paperwork with me, even though I had made my reservation electronically in the first place.Reviewed Apr 4 2017

great experience other than the operating hoursCons:I wish the pick up at the train station was open later than 7 PM. I had to take cab to the New Haven airport to get car.Reviewed Oct 1 2016

Be Careful What You ReadCons:The rate on our car was nearly $500 for 4 nights. It was a Toyota Corolla that wasn't in all that good of shape. I made a mistake, and was looking at rates for $250 for the same period from Budget, but the location was off-premise and away from the airport. I feel burned on this one and will not be doing business with Budget again.Reviewed Jun 20 2017

Pros:Everything was great, picking up and dropping off were very easy. The car was in excellent condition and cleanliness was great.Cons:Not sure why I had to pay 22 on kayak and then the whole rental amount at the rental agency. I was under the impression I was paying some “due now” and would pay the rest at pick up. Kayak, please explain?Reviewed Aug 20 2019
