Terrible, Terrible, Terrible employeesCons:I had to return my rental from Hertz and switch to a rental from Budget, I talked to the front desk agent at Budget and she advised me to return my car from Hertz first. The desks were about 10ft away from each other mind you, after the return to Hertz I walked over to Budget and they were closed down because they apparently switched there hours to earlier times on Saturdays (which wasn't stated on the website). So my reservation and me being there did not mean anything to them, they just wanted to get out of there on time and left me stranded in the airport and was forced to rent at top dollar through another company, instead of costing me $41 for a 24 hour rental it cost me $120. I have never been so irritated with a business in my life.Reviewed Nov 9 2015

Pros:Drop off was easy and the car was comfy.Cons:I made a reservation for a compact car the day before at a specific location and I get to the pickup location and they tell me I have to drive another 15 minutes to another location because they were out of compact cars. That part was fine but a heads up ahead of time would’ve been great. The car I was given at the new location was dirty. The trunk was full of old receipts, a roll of raffle tickets and other trash. The cashier at the new location tried to charge me 30 dollars more than i was quoted. Luckily I caught it before he ran my card.Reviewed Jan 9 2021

Do you or do you not have a rental car?Pros:My daughter and I went to Budget office in St Augustine, FL to pick up car. First off, hours online were stated as 'opens at 7'am. The employee was not there until going on 8am. Another person told us they didn't have any cars. It was stressful waiting for person to arrive to check. Lucky for me, they did have a car. Headed up the road (an hour plus late) for Concord, NC. Arrived after hours at Avis-Budget office so I had to ca,l Budget for instructions. 'Charlie's helped me get a new drop off spot at Regional airport. I had NO idea how to vet t hete but a friend said they would get me to the airport, which was only 5 miles away. I was instructed to get there before 9pm when they close. We found our way there by 7:15 AND THEY WERE CLOSED!!! Had to drop keys in Dropbox. No one to check car. E etc. POOR BUSINESS!!

The dirty carPros:The ease of pick up and drop off. Being it was a small local airport car was waiting by the plane when got off and were able drive right up to the plane for drop off.Cons:The car was dirty. In the bright Florida sun and a hot tarmac we didn't notice, but when we got to our hotel we noticed the outside of the car was dirty. It appeared to be rinsed but dry When I started to drive at dusk, the residue on the inside of the windows made it difficult to see out the windshield. I had to get towels from the hotel to wipe down the windows.Reviewed Jul 2 2016

Pick up at unmarked Walmart? Took ages to figure it out.Pros:Budget representative in St. Augustine was very nice despite me storming in while complaining about how long it took us to find the place. Got a good value for the money and the car served its purpose to take us to the airport.Cons:First, the pick up location was an address that led to a Walmart. No signs outside about Budget anywhere. No instructions in the confirmation email about walmart either. It took us forever to figure it out. The representative told us Walmart won't let Budget put up a sign outside. Well, at least send instructions to the clients about where to find the location. Second, car smelled bad. It had over 25000 miles on it, so it is older.Reviewed Jan 22 2018
