Cons:

Waiting outside before picking the car up and after dropping it off seems like a poor way to do business. I understand that in these times of COVID-19, businesses have had to make changes, but being able to wait inside for a ride seems do able.

Cons:

The car was very smoky smelling. Every tim ewe got in it, the odor was annoying. Especially since at checkout we signed a part of the contract that said we would not smoke in the vehicle. Seems it should be presented to us without smoke smell.

Middletown office was great. Gave us a. I’ve car that we liked. Budget customer service was terrible after we got a flat tire on a one-way rental. Roadside assistance was not helpful and the customer service line directed us to three different rental offices in a row that couldn’t provide us with a replacement car. Ended up having to end the rental and take the train to reach our destination. With an infant, a toddler, and a family’s worth of luggage, this was a pretty unpleasant experience. Don’t think I’ll ever rent from budget again.

Pros:

Cons:

The car was not spot clean. The windshield needs wiping from the inside in the vehicles I have rented. I normally take water and vinegar to do the cleaning myself, especially for night driving where the glare of the incoming cars make the marks more apparent.
