Above and beyondPros:We rented a car from Budget for a week's vacation in Aruba, and the experience was very good, other than learning that we had to go to the "main" location to pick up our car, not at the airport. We got a brand new car which served us well. When I returned the car, I didn't realize I left my credit card on the counter. I only found out when the airport gate agent called my name and handed me my card which the Budget personnel had gone to the trouble of bringing to the airport and figuring out which flight I was on!Reviewed Dec 1 2017

Nearly Ruined our vacationCons:We arrived at the counter and were told to come back in an hour since they didn't have our cars ready yet. When we returned we were told that they only had 1 car for us - I had booked 6 months in advance and followed up periodically to confirm the reservation including calling the day before. We are a family of 8 and were staying at a house that required a car to get to the beach, restaurant, or grocery store so only getting 1 car was a huge problem. We had to get a taxi for 4 of us to even get to the house and then spent the next 24 hours trying to figure out how we were going to make the vacation work with 1 car. A lot of stress when we were supposed to be enjoying our vacation. They eventually got us another car but we had to take 1/2 day of vacation to get it and then were charged extra to drop it at the airport. Worst experience I have had in my 40 years of traveling.Reviewed Jan 21 2016

Pros:Drop off was simple. We will see if I get any extra charges...Cons:The pick up was horrible. The reservation was actually not from the airport. The office closed early and didn’t have a car for us. We were forced to pay for an upgrade and all these extra fees and had to work pretty hard to negotiate a reasonable resolution. Overall very poor experience.Reviewed Jan 3 2021

Pros:Nothing. Our flight was late by 2 hours and when we reached at the budget office to pick up our cars they told us they had no more cars for us. We were 5 families traveling together so we had booked 5 cars and out those 5 cars none was available. Totally ridiculous. That would never happen in US. We ended up renting our cars from a local car rental company but had to pay double the cost of what we had booked with Budget. So this is a warning for future travelers, if you have booked with Budget there is no guarantee that you will get the car.Cons:Wish we had gotten our cars and not pay double the costReviewed Dec 31 2020

Get what you pay forPros:Price was good, pick up and delivery ok,Cons:The car was all scratched up, the tire was low, made screeching noise braking or starting to accelerate, the it went flat cause there was a screw imbedded in the tire. They really need to check all the tires, glad I wasn't out in the Arikok park! Took an hour for someone to come and fix it, very nice man but his tools were nonexistant, tire change took 2 hours because the jack fell over, scary. Glad the man wasn't hurt! Going to think again when renting a less expensive car and Budget, had a better experience with other rental companiesReviewed Apr 5 2017

Pros:The car they rented us, even though it was smaller than the class/size we reserved, was clean and comfortable.Cons:We did not receive the size/class car that we reserved (reservation was made several months ago) and were told none was available. No apologies were offered - the attitude was just "too bad". They tried to get us to rent from Dollar next door, but we were on our one vacation of the year and felt it unfair that we would have to spend all that extra time to do another reservation and payment, plus a potential price difference. So instead, they found us a smaller car, and I had to go back and negotiate the correct price. Then, when we dropped the car off eight days later, 25 - 30 minutes later than expected, they charged me for an extra day. I think there could have been much better Customer Service. Thank you for asking for feedback.Reviewed Feb 10 2017
