Cons:I would like to receive an email copy of my final bill when I dropped off the key in the night box.Reviewed Jun 29 2017

Cons:Gas tank was not full when I picked it up, but agent asked me to return full. I did not have time to go in at pick up and ask them to verify that tank was not full. When I told her this upon return, she was surprised. I pointed out I was not asking for a refund, but that the cars are not as ready to be rented as they may be led to believe.Reviewed Nov 12 2019

Pros:Good customer service. They were willing to change vehicles when the first one I had was accelerating too fast and was uncomfortable.Cons:The second car was semi-clean on the outside...waterspots all over the windshield and mirrors. Had not been cleaned inside. Found Pop-Tarts and food wrappers. Line was 5 deep with only one counter clerk available to take care of customers.Reviewed May 11 2016

SufficientPros:Nothing outstanding, but acceptable service. No wait this time for check out. We selected Budget because it was onsite at the airport, and the car was close to the rental exit from the airport building. Good value for the cost.Cons:In Northern Michigan in ltr November one can expect snow. The cars did not have snow tires and so was unable to get up our driveway to our house, and was a bit stressful to drive with a bit of accumulation on the roads. Inquiring about an upgrade, though, it wiuld have nearly tripled our cost to get a suv with 4w drive!Reviewed Nov 21 2018

Fuel rip offPros:Nothing after attempted rip off.Cons:Drove a Subaru Forester less than 18 miles. Filled tank and have receipt for .77 gallons. Gauge obviously read full when returned and I checked off "full" on contract. Agency added a $13.99 "FUEL SEVICE" charge to invoice. How many other renters have they ripped off. Also happened to me in Grand Rapids by Avis once. Contacted corporate and they promised to reverse the fee. When I picked the car up it was covered with snow and wipers frozen to windshield.Reviewed Jan 7 2017

Great car, mixed review on customer servicePros:The brand new car I got from Budget & the drop-off procedure was great. Would highly recommend based on these two variables. In fact, the agent who checked me in upon returning my car was the very gentleman whose trainer from 4 days earlier was so very poor a communicator! He, fortunately did not learn this behavior from her.Cons:The pickup procedure would have gone more smoothly had the woman who assisted me been more communicative. I understand she was training a new guy behind the counter, but each time she abruptly left my paperwork to go assist him, she never acknowledged the interruption! I travel a lot for work & have always found patience & kindness are my defaults when dealing with the ups & downs of travel - it doesn't always fix the problem, but it makes the entire experience more bearable. However, her inability or unwillingness to say a simple, Pardon me," before assisting her trainee began to really get under my skin as it added more & more time to my entire pickup experience. (I was only mildly irritated, but the rather lengthy line of customers waiting behind me for pickup was definitely more than annoyed but the time my transaction was completed.) To cap things off, her directions to my car were the complete opposite of where it was actually parked. Neither of these things are deal breakers, but kept me from giving strong marks across the board.Reviewed Jul 20 2016

Horrible customer servicePros:The car had 4 wheelsCons:The lady at the counter was pushy wanted paperwork signed with out an inspection stating that "our people looked over it" After refusing to sign the paper saying there wasn't any damage on the car without lookingvatvitvshe got snippy wouldn't give me the keys told me I didn't get them till it was signed. ( car was locked couldn't get inside to inspect) after inspection I found plenty of damage (bigger than a quarter) and returned to let them know. Choosing a different lady because the fist one was rude she saw me in line An told me to come back to her I politely said nobill wait for another she got snippy again waving the keys saying I've got the keys. I then got mad An told her off. The manager over heard An asked what was going on I started to tell him as she stood behind home mocking me An talking over me. I then told him it's clear that she has no idea how to do customer service because if she did she wouldn't be acting the way she was.. worse rental experienceReviewed Aug 28 2017
