The staff did not recognize my rental and claimed that they did not have my contact information from Kayak to inform me that they had cancelled my reservation and did not have cars available. My phone number and contact details were clearly listed on the reservation with Kayak.

Cons:

They were not willing to make any accomodation. It would have been better if I had gone elsewhere.

My only complaint is that the windshield wipers did not work properly. They made a scraping noise so that they could not be left on.

The customer service rep was precise in her information. Basically took my license, typed out info then handed me the keys. No extra communications. At this location you pick up the car yourself from a very dim lit garage. When I returned the car I told her the car was not clean. Her response was we video the car before it goes out. I said the car was sandy, including in the backseat, between the seats. Her reply was we video before it goes out. I said no, when I picked up the car it had sand all inside the vehicle. Again, her response was we video the car before it goes out and adjust amount if necessary. What? So they take videos instead of cleaning it?

I was disappointed that they only had an SUV when I was looking for a smaller car, but otherwise, everything was excellent. Great service.

I will never rent from budget again. Wildly unprofessional, the car rental experience was stressful and the car itself was disgusting.

Pick up and drop off we’re simple and efficient. Discovered a tire had a nail in it and was leaking. Called their 1-800 number and they arranged for me to swap out the car. Very satisfied with their response.

There was nobody at the dropoff location, we arrived during the open hours but there was no attendance in the garage. We waited for an hour and it took 20 minutes to get a person on the phone from Hertz customer service.
