Never rent from BudgetPros:Drop off was a breezeCons:To start off when I picked the van up it was parked in a dark garage between two huge vans we almost couldn't get in, but in order to leave the garage you have to sign a paper stating there's no damage to the car... you can't see anything in a dark garage! Next the van smelled awful, no floor mats, the passenger side between the seats had all kinds of food in it, and last the side automatic doors didn't work. Once I got home and we were packing up the van we noticed a giant strach on the side, along with damage to the front, which I didn't see in the DARK garage. We drove from Ohio to Florida over 1,000 miles, on our way home about 3 hrs into our trip we blew a tire. Got off the highway and called roadside assistance, they sent out a repair company which took an 1 1/2 to show up, then 30 minutes to change it, and the spare he put on was about the size of a cheerio, then we had to stuff the blown tire into the van with our stuff, we were told we had to take it with us. So I call roadside again, because I don't feel comfortable driving this van with 4 kids and all of our stuff over 1,000 miles back home on this tiny spare. Budget tells us to just trade it in at any location for a new rental. We did find a place to trade it in, that was an hour out of the way, then transferring 4 kids and a ton of luggage to another van in the 110 degree Florida heat is always fun. So all this time wasted caused us to miss the return time for the rent a car and we were charged 120 bucks to add an additional day which Budget would not removed the charge. Are you freaking kidding me!! Never ever ever will we rent from Budget again. Awful, Awful, Awful!!!Reviewed Aug 14 2017

Over the Top Refil Price and MorePros:The base price was very reasonable.Cons:It took at least 45 minutes for me to pickup the car. There were four people ahead of my in line and only one person working the counter. The car was filthy on the outside when we picked it up. It was a hard blue car with road salt completely covering the sides and side windows. The steering wheel had some brown sticky substance on it. I was planning on returning it with a full tank, so when I picked the car up I told them that. I thought I remembered a gas station close to the airport, but apparently it wasn’t where I remembered. We didn’t ace enough time to go out of our way (traveling with a young child was partly to blame) and I dropped it off and told them. I had used just over half a tank and was charged $75 to refill the tank to full. Very frustrated overall and was finally charged a lot more than I expected for a dirty product and my fault if not returning it with gas.Reviewed Dec 12 2018

Budget At Dayton (DAY) BE AWAREPros:Car was a Kia Sol. Very nice and clean.Cons:Being told a flat lie by the counter representative upon picking up my car. Was quoted $68 and some change for my reservation but was charged over $90. When I questioned the rep, he said that Kayak doesn't include the airport fees, etc. Upon dropping off the car, the lady informed me that the cost was higher due to a request to "upgrade" my car. I was shocked. Be weary of the Budget at Dayton. I spoke with the manager who said that he would ensure that I would get my originally quoted price...so we'll see when I get my credit card statement.Reviewed Jun 13 2016

Pros:The car did run well with no issues of car troubles and the Honda did have good gas mileage.Cons:Car interior was pretty dirty. There was dried BBQ and chicken chunks all over the car including the seats belts straps. The smell was very bad and had human hair balls all over it. We did not receive the car we booked online and when we arrived for pickup we were advised that there was no midsize car and we needed to upgrade to a SUV for additional daily cost. When we refused a SUV a car was made available but only after we refused to pay additional cost over what we were quoted online. We booked a Ford Fusion and received a Honda.Reviewed Apr 5 2016
