Massive lineCons:Queue was absolutely massive while other car hire company's queue were minimal. Instead of waiting hours, we sadly decided to rent with another provider even though we had pre-paid with budget. Pretty pathetic business practiceReviewed Mar 20 2017

KAYAK advertises false informationPros:They were able to upgrade us to what we paid forCons:We ordered a 5 person SUV and the rental was not a 5 person SUV. The rental company said they didn't offer a 5 person SUV at the price we paid and that KAYAK site was displaying false information about the class of car we paid for. There are no 5 person SUVs available in the class of car we paid for but on KAYAK the option we chose said 5 person SUV and that description on KAYAK was the deciding factor. In other words we chose this car and this company because o KAYAKS descritpion. If steps they're not taken to compensate us I will be filing complaints with staying local and private officialsReviewed Sep 10 2017

Cons:Airline routed us to a different airport in the same city. When we asked iBudget to honor our reservation, they offered us a new, higher rate. (Our earlier rate had included the extra cost of returning to a different airport; the new cost quoted was even higher, despite that we now wanted to pick up and return at the same airport.) We went with a different company and were quite happy. I would not reserve a car with Budget again.Reviewed Oct 9 2016

Window broken, dirty, 2.5 hr wait with a bookingCons:Window was broken and wouldnt roll up. With heavy winds and 30 degrees outside, this was not ideal. Since it took 2.5 hrs waiting in line to get the car i prebooked, and since rhe airport was 45 min away, i didnt have any time to return the car on my short stopover or i would have missed the time window to see beautiful iceland. Instead i had to spend more money and book a driver. The car had not been cleaned on the inside either.Reviewed May 26 2017

Pros:Friendly ServiceCons:Hidden fees - ended up paying over double ($858 USD for 4.5 days). They frozen multiple amounts of money on my credit card making funds unavailable. Staff were friendly but very slow procedures - I waiting in line for 50min (only 4 people in front of me).Reviewed May 30 2016

Pros:The car was reliable and easy.Cons:The option to pain in US dollars was at a ripoff exchange rate which they defaulted to without asking my preference. I went back to fix it. Adding on the Insurance and a GPS almost tripled our total.Reviewed Jun 1 2016

Great experiencePros:- Upon arrival, I was upgraded to a bigger SUV - The car was brand new and a pleasure to drive - The attendant at the pickup location was highly informative and gave us good advice on additional add-ons. - The cost was less than similar cars offered by alternative rental shops. With the upgrade, the value was far superior. - Drop-off inspection was swift and they got us in an out of the office in less than 15 minutes.Cons:- The pickup process was a bit slow and the car was not located in it's designated spot in the parking lot. - Drop off was a little confusing as the directions to the rental place on the car's GPS were not correct. These were minor inconveniences and did not detract from the experience as a whole.Reviewed May 9 2016

Poor Customer ServicePros:The car itself.Cons:The lack of communication regarding the price as well as the drop off time/location. They told us to drop the car off by 5 pm and they closed at 1pm. They also told us that there would be a shuttle to take us back to our hostel and there wasn't. Finally, the woman who gave us the rental said she would charge us for one day instead of two and didn't.Reviewed Jan 1 2017

Incorrect PricingPros:The car was fine.Cons:The price was 4x as expensive once in returned the car. Really put a dent in our "BUDGET". In addition, I was charged once in Iceland and again a couple days ago in Virginia Beach (I place I have never been) for a similar amount. Called "BUDGET" and they don't see the second fraudulent charge on their end and weren't really interested in helping me figure it out.Reviewed Apr 7 2016

Rip offCons:It ended up costing me three times as much as the amount on the booking page. I rented a car for one day, it was supposed to cost me 59 $ but in they hade taken around 150 $ from my bank account... A total rip off!Reviewed Sep 25 2016
