Pros:Over all it was a good experience.Cons:The wait for the shuttle bus at Philadelphia airport was way too long. The other rental companies had 2-3 shuttles come and go in the time we waited for your shuttle. I started wondering if you weren’t running shuttles. Then when we got on the shuttle it was hot with no ac.Reviewed Sep 10 2020

cigarette ashtraysPros:new car lots of featuresCons:the checking clear was slow, when i when to the parking lot to get the car another couple was already inside the car and said that was there second car the first one did not had keys (so they gave the same car to 2 different people), walk around the car and the rear bumper was damage, when back again they give me another car with 1700 miles but the car smelled like a cigarette ashtray, it was 2 in the morning and i had a wedding in the morning and the line to get another car was too long, took the car the following day to get the smell out to a car wash they did the best, still stinks, called customer service they just said bring it back we give you something else, i was 2 hours away from the airport, when i return the car i advised the person on the drop off area, i guess she was a smoker because she did not care, it really sucks because my wife and son suffer from allergies and asthma and that smell was horrible, had to drive 5 days with the windows down regardless of the weather or area, not fun driving with the windows down in the highway.Reviewed Jun 14 2016

FrustratingPros:NothingCons:Confusion, long waits, very unhappy staff, did not get my quoted price, will never use budget again. Given wrong information, waited almost 2 hours after a red eye flight! Given more frustrating & wrong information when we returned the car! Car smelled like pee, was not clean, they made a mistake and said we were in the wrong car! The car that was supposed to be ours was wrecked & they called us to find out what car we had!!! So mad about the whole situation. I really want my money back. They offered 40.00 off a future rental, hilarious!!Reviewed Aug 23 2018

Disappointing experiencePros:Returnng the vehicle.Cons:I waited for the Budget shuttle bus at the airline terminal for a very long time. I called Budget two different times to let them know I was waiting at the designated post with several other customers. Eventually, the shuttle arrived 50 minutes later. The Avis shuttle passed by four times while I was waiting. The key for the car was not where the clerk told me it would be. I had to return to the kiosk and find someone to look for the key. 15 minutes later the key was found hidden under the passenger seat. The car assigned to me was filthy inside and outside. I drove to a car wash the next day and paid to have a Budget rental car washed. That was the first time I ever washed a rental car!Reviewed Jan 9 2017

Worst car rental experience everPros:Car was ok.Cons:I Chose the location of Philadelphia airport for my reservation. I got to the Budget location at the airport and after the service person worked on my rental nearly 45 minutes he said I was in the wrong place and that my rental location was a 45 minute drive away. Then he said he could process me as a walk up and after another 30 minutes came up with a price 3 times the amount on my confirmation. I said that was unacceptable and he spent about another 30 minutes voiding it out. This went on and on. They finally gave me a price that was about double what I had reserved. I will never use Kayak or Budget again. If one rents a car at an airport, how are they supposed to go to a location 45 minutes away?? This was totally misleading, inconvenient and cost me twice price I had reserved it for.Reviewed Mar 24 2016

Cons:The car was filthy. Not washed , inside lord ok, no trash or dirty but smells like cigarettes, alot of cigarettes. I went to the dollar store abd bought myself doest air freshener abd window cleaner abd paper towels to clean it myself, after ask we are in a pandemic abd I have to sit in this thing all day. THEN I wanted to extend my rental but it was $57 a day to extend my $42 a day rental..... that's a joke. It should carry the same price. They close 30 minutes after i dopped it off... so instead of making $40 they got nothing. I was told the reason they didn't wash the car was that the Pipes were frozen.... hasn't been that cold. She was the only one there.. She was very polite, seems like they expect too much from her. Very busy. But for$43 ......i was ok with it.Reviewed Jan 11 2021
