I was clearly not welcomePros:nilCons:the car was noisy and not fuel efficient. The staff was unwelcoming starting from the moment they realized I had booked from a broker in the US and was paying less than then French rentals. They took revenge by upselling me some insurance. I was not against it, but numbers really did not add up. It was not only more expensive, but also the EUR - USD fx rate did not make sense. I ended up paying double the amount I had initially booked. Also, there was a railway station tax which I also found out about, and when I challenged them again on this, they had no response other than a threat: "you know, we should cancel your booking because you are not a US resident but you booked through a US site". very nice...last but not least, I had to beg them to show me the car and bring me to it for a review. Initially, they did not want to come out of their cosy office. none in the office was very interested or concerned about me, and I was the only client...Reviewed Jan 12 2018

Pros:The car was very clean and the drop off was easy.Cons:The price we booked for and obtained confirmation on was not the final price because when we picked up the car we were told it did not include even basic obligatory insurance. This nearly double the price in the end!!! I have not witnessed that with any other car hire in Paris so far. Also, when we had an issue o the road, we spent 110 minutes, split across three calls, trying to reach the assistance service. Apart from the rudeness of certain interlocutors, when we finally got through to someone at the right desk, we were told the local service would call us back a few minutes later. We got a call 3 hours later!! Luckily, some kind people on the street helped us sort the problem, else we would have been sitting on the street for that amount of time. This is completely unacceptable....Reviewed Aug 18 2016

Fleet of cars not well maintained and no inventoryPros:Great prices compared to other rentals.Cons:The car type/category wasn't available (premium sedan). Tried to give me an SUV without telling me they were switching. I ask to be put Ina sedan of a higher category if that was the only thing they had as a sedan. They tried to up sell me instead. They thought it was totally normal to double the price of my location because they didn't have the car type I had reserved. Then for some reasons they couldn't give me the price of my reservation. After a long process they finally gave me the upgrade for the price I was quoted for. Car wasn't really clean. I also had to stop at a Mercedes dealership to add some oil after the warning light went off. Car was 8000 km overdue for service.Reviewed Sep 1 2016

Pros:The cars were fine and prices were pretty much same as in other car rental companies.Cons:I had a really bad experience ranting the car in France. The pick up location was closed but they had not notified me and we had to go to an airport. We wasted two hrs on that. Also we had an accident with no fault of ours but it took ten hrs spreed over two days to get a replacement car. This was a night mare. All related expenses should be paid through the insurance of the other party but they put all the charges (over $10K) on my credit card. I believe this is a common practice but it remains to see when they will credit it back to me. Hopefully at least this part will go smoothly.Reviewed Jun 22 2016

Service above and beyond....my hat is off to BudgePros:I left my camera in the car's glove compartment. After I reported it, the morning Budget rep was very helpful. When the car returned, Budget found my camera and returned it to my daughter, while I was on the plane back to Montreal. "Lady", the renting agent, was very warm and helpful when we picked up the car, and the agent in charge of the office when I returned the car went out of her way to make sure that the car was searched properly. It's rare to see customer service at this level. Hats off to Budget. I won't forget Budget in my future rental searches. PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE IN PARIS THANK LADY AND THE "MORNING AGENT" (whose name I didn't get) for me. In my next visit to Paris, I will make a special trip to thank the staff.

The car lot is no longer at the address I bookedPros:I got a confirmation and a notice that car was ready and waiting... Which would have been nice but the place was no longer in business. Too bad I found out when Ingot to the parking lot in Paris. Wasted 3 hours of my vacation finding another budget. Thank goodness they honored the paper work I had for the other business. But not car insurance had to pay twice as much as was quoted with early bookingReviewed Jul 6 2016

Should have learnt my lesson from my previous expePros:when I returned the car 2 hours late, I argued and waiting for about an hour so they could 'not' charge me an extra day. that was nice.Cons:Renting a car is such a pain, scam, and sadly sucks away the excitement of a short break before you even set off. I booked four days car rental for $230 knowing I would get stung for some insurance. Then I ended up getting a smaller car, waiting 2 hours for it, being charged extra because they didn't have my car, paying surcharges.. dropping off the car with a final bill of around $550 conveniently charged to my credit card, I walked out of Avis/Budget counter feeling pretty sore. Onur ps. i didn't even opt for the $40 a day full insuranceReviewed Nov 2 2016

Really Bad ExperienceCons:Even though my reservation was confirmed, they made me wait 2 full hours because I didn't book through them (EuroCar). When I asked if I could just book throgh them, they indicated it would be 300 Euros per day, not the 14 offered through your web site. I saw that it was thier practice to make anyone who booked through a discount site to wait for two hours. Then they didn't provide me with any information for calling with issues with the vcar. and the Car had headlights that didn't work properly. Also, they said the gas tank was full, but it was not. This was a really bad experience.Reviewed Sep 27 2017
