  • Auburn has many exciting sights and activities to offer visitors, such as the Auburn Mall, which is home to over 60 stores, the Goddard Memorial State Park, and The Greenway Walking Trail.

The roads most affected by traffic congestion during rush hours include Routes 12 and 20, as well as the I-290 and I-90 highways. In addition, winters in Auburn can also be potentially difficult for driving, as the area experiences snow and ice conditions from December to March. Furthermore, during the spring and summer seasons, areas around Auburn can get musky and muddy due to frequent rains, particularly near bodies of water, which may make driving conditions slipperier and more challenging for cheap car rentals in Auburn

Pros:

Nothing - I was unable to make the rental because the hours of the rental car location were a lie.

Cons:

The online hours listed for Budget Car Rental say it is open until 7 pm. However, when I arrived at 4 pm, there were no employees there. I waited for an hour, but no one showed up. I called the location, & it said "all of our employees are busy" - the store hours are a lie.

Pros:

Ease of dropping off the car. Simply pulled into the lot adjacent to the terminal, parked, and dropped keys at counter.

Cons:

The agent’s attitude when I mentioned that I was expecting a discount for returning the vehicle with more gasoline then when I picked it up. He immediately said that was not possible; even though, I was told differently by a Budget representative when I called the company’s customer service line earlier in the day. He also did not seem interested in my concerns regarding the cleanliness of the vehicle I noticed shortly after picking up the vehicle.

The car given to me had very bad brakes and I was unable to drive the car. I took it back the next morning and they refused to give me a full refund for the car. It wasn't even the car I had intended to rent! The service was horrible at the counter and they didn't even have the car I wanted to rent. The customer sevice with Budget has been awful. I am still fighting to get my refund for the one day I did not even drive the car!!!
