6.0 GoodNov 1 2021
I didn’t like that the car they gave me hadn’t been fully evaluated by their staff prior to renting it to me. The “ maintenance required / bring vehicle to dealer l light came on the dashboard the day after I Picked up the car
10.0 ExcellentOct 28 2021
The negatives I have were based on the small size of the car, which I chose and the price which was a little less than other rental agencies. I had never been in a Nissan Sentra and never will be again. Rental car rates are more than double what they were before. I have to accept that, but I don’t have to accept that it represents decent value. Everything else was fine.
8.0 ExcellentOct 23 2021
There will be no any optional items after the reservation Should have enough stuff members to run the business
10.0 ExcellentOct 21 2021
Vehicle was ready and was the vehicle we expected and wanted. Vehicle worked well, and we traveled more than 1000 miles with no issue. Downside was long lines for pickup and very limited Alamo locations for return in the Northeast part of the US.
5.9 OkayOct 1 2021
Really wanted and needed a car. The truck was not a real practical option, but no cars available at the time of booking, and quite expensive when we arrived.
7.2 GoodSep 14 2020
I noticed at pick up that the wheel cover was missing. I took a pic as suggested by the attendant, if I found any issues with it. When I arrived at my destination, I was asked if I had a flat tire along the way. I told him no that the wheel cover was missing when I picked it up. He told me that I was driving with a donut. I was shocked as it didn't appear smaller than the other tires and I had driven for 4 hours and 260 miles at top speeds of 75 mph. I have no idea if there was another spare in the trunk, the flat tire, or nothing. Fortunately nothing happened, but could have been ugly and never should have been rented out in that condition.

Easy to pick up and easy to dropThe car smelled like cigarettes. Very smoky and had to drive with the windows cracked.

Yes everything went well, drop off was really easy.Satellite radio would of been nice but I’m not complaining for the price of the rental.
7.6 GoodJan 3 2020
Staff very friendly, pick up easy, convenient location, no line.Car was a bit dirtier than I had expected, coffee stains on ceiling that I didn't notice until later. Nobody in garage during pickup or dropoff, but as long as they don't charge me for someone else's mess, I'm ok with that.

Lady behind the counter was super friendly considering the Covid-19 changes in effectThis has nothing to do with the rental company, just the location... the airport has limited access, only one door is unlocked to enter, just made for a lot of extra walking
7.2 GoodOct 9 2019
The staff was fine. The car was fine. Off airport rental was much more economical!Drop off at TF Greene airport in Warwick was very poorly marked. No good directions were available. Web site info for this location needs to be updated with clearly written directions to drop off in the parking garage!
10.0 ExcellentOct 2 2019
We reserved a van from the airport but was able to pick up right at the local Williston Road Enterprise for the same price. This location was easier for us as we were able to leave our smaller car there while away. Great price! I called this location a couple of times and employees were helpful.

5.6 OkayNov 19 2017
Please make it more challenging and time consumingThe woman at the counter spoke very good English.You must drive into a garage where there is only a small sign posted, that applies to all car rental companies, which you must stop and read, and it is on a curve where cars are blindly coming around and you must stop, block traffic, and read the four steps of 1) parking the car in the appropriate area, 2) cleaning it out, 3) writing down the mileage and 4) locking it, noting the number of your space, and returning the keys to the rental counter. What it doesn't say is 1) your parking space is far away 2) the rental counter is across the street in the main terminal downstairs on the other end 3) the escalators don't work and 4) have fun waiting in line to turn in all this information you are supposed to provide.
6.4 GoodAug 16 2017
The rental policies were a bit unclear, and we wound up paying ~$150 more than we expected to.
7.6 GoodAug 7 2017
- Quick and easy - Good price (note there may be fees on top)- Couldn't change the pick up and drop off times to be true without changing the price and adding $200 - Returning the car was kind of confusing - Charged for fees I didn't know existed (late drop off, not driving enough miles, etc)

When my flight was changed to two hours later, Budget wouldnt talk to me, said I needed to talk to Hotwire who I got my deal from. When I called them they said nothing they could do? They said budget would give away my car? I took a chance and got there late, but my car was there. SHEW! I will always reserve directly from the rental car company from now on, even if it costs a little more.
7.9 GoodJul 12 2021
The pick-up was great. The vehicle itself was very clean, fairly comfortable and all-in-all did the job! The drop off was the issue, as there was no Budget person to great or help us. We did not know that we simply had to park in any one of the Budget spaces and then go up to the Rental counter to drop off the key. Other wise, very good.
2.0 MediocreJul 6 2021
we got a car that was able to get us from A to Breserved an infant car seat, upon arrival we were told “not gonna happen” before some phone calls were made and a seat was found for us. car smelled like smoke and was in major need of a wheel alignment, and drop off instructions were not clear
2.0 MediocreJun 20 2021
They were out of my reserved vehicle class despite extra efforts on my part to ensure that my rental would be available and Budget would be open. I was then overcharged for a lesser class of vehicle that Budget somehow considered in the same class as what I reserved, despite clearly not being an SUV or higher end car.
10.0 ExcellentMay 20 2021
Staff at BTV was excellentHate how much a one way car rental costs as compared to a normal rental.
7.2 GoodJul 19 2020
Pickup was not good since the desk closed at 4 and our flight arrived at 6:30. We were forced to spend a night in the only hotel that would take us due to the quarantine of outside visitors to Vermont. The hotel bent the rules to let us stay, otherwise we would not have had a place to stay to pick up the car next morning. I should note that all the other rental desks were open when we arrived.The desk could have been staffed until the last arrival.

I want to command the staff member at the Burlington Airport Budget rental agency, who waited for me to arrive from my late flight to complete my rental. I was the only passenger she was waiting for, I very much appreciate her kindness and very pleasant demeanor despite keeping her away from her family for me. I do not know her name, but that picked up my rental at around 10:30 PM on April 8, 2020 from Burlington, Vermont Airport.Nothing.

BASICALLY WAS GOING TO STEAL OUR MONEYThat I, myself, called to confirm the pick up, and found out I had time to cancel in enough time before a horrible mistake took place.I called to ask about my reservation that I had booked weeks prior. I prepaid for the car using a debit card. The man on the phone informed me that I was not going to be able to pick up my car at the destination, which was 2,000 miles from home. I asked why I would get a confirmation email from Hertz saying that the car is booked, and the money cleared out of my account if they didn't intend on giving me the car. He said you HAVE to use a credit card to pick up. I again asked why no one contacted me. He told me it was a good question. That was his answer. The funny thing is, if you cancel the day of your pick up, you dont get a refund. So, Hertz was going to let me pay them hundreds of dollars out of my debit card, not get the car I paid for, then want me to do a separate order with my credit card to get a car. Paying double.
2.0 MediocreOct 22 2018
Didn’t get the rentalI didn’t get the rental because in this area they don’t allow people under 25 to rent a car even though on the Hertz website it say that they will just charge a underage fee. Communication on the under 25 rules should be more clearly laid out because the only thing I read about that rule was there might be an added fee not that I would be unable to rent it.
2.0 MediocreOct 17 2018
I booked an SUV but got a vanI went to Vermont traveling to mountain area. I knew with the weather and road condition I would need an SUV. When I got there Herz gave me a van (as an upgrade). It is not an upgrade but they had no other cars, this big van drove like a car but heavier and longer. I could have paid for a smaller size car instead of paid for expensive SUV and got worse than a car.
10.0 ExcellentJul 31 2018
Better deal, quicker service than at BTVThe service was fast and efficient. They didn’t do any of the “hard sell” techniques for add ons that you neither want nor need—-a rarity when renting at most places. The return was simple and straightforward. To top it all off, we saved $250 by renting here instead of the airport.Since it is not at the airport, you have to arrange transportation (a short ride) and it is not always open.

3.9 MediocreAug 30 2021
For older and physically impaired users, better description of the size, leg room, comfort and entry and exits are needed. We may not know the car name and type. To us mid-sized means a roomy sedan not a compact car. Our expectations include an odometer, easy adjustment of the steering wheel and seats. This car was like driving a roller skate. We hit our heads getting in the car, banged our knees on the dashboard and I struggled to get out of the car. Also, personnel need to offer to show the car features and explain them. We didn’t know how to remove the ignition key!

Some South Burlington car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them.
