Pros:Representatives did respond to my request to be charged the agreed amount, and refunded the erroneous extra charges.Cons:Upon returning, the representatives at Budget tried several times to get me to drop off the keys and leave without a receipt, saying they would email it. I insisted upon receiving a paper invoice with the total charges. I had the rental agreement papers that i had signed upon pickup with me and put them on the counter, the representative took them off the counter and threw them away without asking me if she could even see them, and then proceeded to charge me $91 more than my quoted price and rental agreement. The money was refunded after my rental agreement was retrieved from the trash can, but I question the integrity of Budget car rentals due to the representative's actions of trying to get me to leave without seeing the charged amount and get rid of the papers with the correct prices.Reviewed Nov 16 2015

Pros:The people were friendly and willing to attempt to help.Cons:My issues were a variety of things. When I was assigned a car I paid for, and everything greened great, we discovered that the cars keys had been lost after my bags were already loaded up. The next car that I was given was a Jeep Wrangler hardtop, that whistled loudly over 20mph, returned it the next day for a third car, a Nissan Pickup. Which was fine. When I checked out, the rate had gone up significantly and was told that they didn’t k ow what had happed and had to look into it. All well and good but I had a flight to catch and had to trust the staff would get it fixed for me. Eventually it did, but the process of this whole rental was not great even though the people were.Reviewed Feb 11 2020

Budget Car Rental, get experience!Pros:My car was ready, clean, gassed up, drove like a dream, never had a mechanical issue and was super comfy. The people at Budget were unclear about where I could drop off the car at return but they teamed up, came through in the end and couldn't have been more genuinely concerned about my issue. I originally picked the car up in Downtown Portland. OR. At the end of my rental period, 9 days, i called Budget and asked if I could return at the airport, they said "sure". What they didn't say was that there were several locations they used near the airport and they didn't tell me which location would be best. So, I was driving from on location to the other using "maps" and one location was for trucks, one for repairs and maintenance, one for washing etc. Finally i said to one Budget employee that I was really getting late for my flight because of the drop off situation. He stopped what he was doing, called his boss who said to let me drop off the car right on the spot and that they'd get my receipt ready in seconds so i could leave. They did and it worked out well. No up charge. The location I dropped off the car at was not set up for returns but they made it happen and made it happen with joy. Nice folks!Reviewed Apr 28 2017

Budget should be more flexible when they know theyPros:PriceCons:I thought I was renting at an airport location. I arrived and was told that I made my reservation at a downtown location and would cost at least twice as much to rent from the airport location. I took a cab downtown with my luggage, carseat, wife and child. Once there they let me know I would be unable to pick it up until my reserved time of noon (although I am fairly certain I made my reservation time at 10:30am, but had no proof of that). There were three staff people and a little wait at 10:30am. I returned at 11:45 and two gentleman were in a similar situation as me, hoping to get their car ASAP but would have to wait until noon. Since it was a hot tiny room I went for a walk instead of waiting and when I returned at 5 to noon the room was full and there was no order among those who have waited. Also, once the clock struck noon the computers all reset. It was after 1 pm before my car was rented. I could see a printout on the desk of the planned reservations. They knew the would get slammed at noon, why didn't they have more staff or just allow people who got there a little bit early to get their car sooner? The staff was helpful and patient considering what they were up against but the company was pretty terrible to allow this to occur. I thought Budget was a national company but I have rented from some hole in the wall type places that were more organized than this.Reviewed Jul 27 2016

Unsure if I will rent from them again....Pros:The unlimited mileage, the price, and that's about it.Cons:The service: they did not say that they had no shuttle service to/from the airport. I could've rented from one that had shuttle service. Ended up having to take Uber to go back to the airport (unnecessary added expense for the trip). Upon arriving, the guy at the counter said they did not have any of the type of car that I had reserved and offered me a tiny smart car. This is the first time I've been offered something smaller instead of an upgrade for them not having the car I reserved. When he did offer an upgrade, it was going to be for a extra fee. I also didn't appreciate having to do a self-inspection of the car for any damage. That's something the employee should do, or at least accompany the renter and do the inspection together (like at most other rental companies). I will not rent from that location when I visit the area again and definitely will not recommend them.Reviewed Jun 19 2017

Cons:They were out of compact cars and "upgraded" me to a mid-size. It was for a long trip and gas milage killed my budget. Ah well.Reviewed Apr 6 2021
