We waited a long time to pick up the car and there was an extra fee to drop off at the airport, but the car itself was good.

10.0 ExcellentJan 17 2017
The customer service was topnotch! She really helped us out in a pinch when we found out our reservation pick up and drop off were not at the airport(s) like we were expecting. The car was in excellent conditions, clean, and modern with its in dash touchscreen system.

Very easy pick up and drop off, very good quality cars and category as promised for very affordable price. We had to switch cars between NZ islands and it was extremely “trouble-free”.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 5 2019
Staff was super friendly at pick up. Returning the car wasn’t an issue at all.I guess maybe a lower day rate.

Wait was very long
7.6 GoodApr 30 2017
I would recommend you know your coverages so your not pressuredThe car was clean and ready promptly.I think we were pressured into extra insurance and the rate was much higher than originally planned.
2.0 MediocreFeb 27 2017
Awful experience - rude, unhelpful desk person, noOur flight came in late and we missed the pick up window. I emailed Budget to let them know, but this message didn't get through to the rental location. When we picked up our car, the woman was not very friendly and said we missed our window and it was given away. She said they had no cars left for us. She did not give us other options of where to rent or what to do in this situation. She did not show sympathy either. Do not rent from Budget. We went with Europcar in the end. They were nice and had a great car for us (and their counter was right next to the Budget one).
8.0 ExcellentFeb 24 2017
We just dropped off our car in Queenstown, didn't pick one up, so not much to really report in the "like" or "dislike" columns that hasn't already been said.Maybe would've been useful to have some signage with instructions since there was only one staff member around and I didn't want to interrupt him only to find out I didn't need to do anything other than drop the car off and deposit the keys.
10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2016
Worked out greatWe didn't know about the drop-off at the ferry until we picked up the car in Queenstown, but it worked our great! Drop one off in Picton, pick up a similar car in Wellington!

Friendly guys working there.It wasn't clear to me that Economy does business as Scotties in Queenstown. Wasn't a big deal, but I was confused about where to wait for the van.
7.6 GoodMar 5 2017
Scottie's New ZealandWe needed a late arrival and Scottie's was accommodating although a little confusing. The car was right where they said it would be and was clean and ran well.We swung by the office the next day to handle the paperwork. The office was open but no employees so we returned the following day to handle it. Glad we had been in town the extra day and our accommodations were near their office.

Long chain of companies, dirty carThe car I ended up with was a hybridEconomy Rent a Car (ERaC) turns out to be more of a broker and contracts other rental companies to provide cars. I arrive in Queenstown where I'm supposed to pick up my car at the terminal, but there is no counter for ERaC. I call the number, but I've been provided their Auckland number, and they tell me I have to call their Queenstown number. It's cold and rainy and I'm making phone calls instead of getting in my car. ERaC Queenstown inform me my car is provided by Scotty's and I have to call them. Scotty's says they are overbooked but they have arranged for another company, Hitch, to provide a car. A Hitch rep calls me and tells me to wait at the commercial car park. I wait. And wait. Then wait some more. A guy comes over and collects some other travelers. Now feeling quite cold, I message the driver and he asks where I am. After a while the guy who recently collected passengers comes over, he's apparently my driver. Turns out there are two commercial car parks and I'm at the 'wrong' one. Nu-huh, signs say otherwise. Now we ride for 10 mins to their office, a makeshift shack in a dirt parking lot. I wait for 25 minutes while he handles the other customers, talks on the phone and directs his staff. So, he doesn't have the car type I reserved but immediately offers to upsell me to a Prius. At this time I've been wasting my precious time in Queenstown and I want to get going, so I accept his offer. It's an extra USD50, but I figure I'll offset some of that with the Prius' better gas mileage. Turns out it's a six or so years old car with 70,000 miles on it, it's dirty and with plenty of nicks and scuffs and a big stain in the trunk. I can live with that, but asks if he has another compact car which is what I reserved. No, but he can give me a smaller car for the same price...I take the Prius. Later I notice that the tires are worn (unsafe in rain) and there is some smear on the inside of the windshield that causes a glare in the sun and other marks on the windows and windshield, similar to what car dealers do to write the price and year etc. It also has a Japanese language audio unit and the trip meter etc is also in Japanese. That's fine if you speak Japanese, but the majority of people visiting New Zealand don't, including me. It also makes a loud beep every time you start the car. The car lacks cruise control. However, the car didn't break down, it got good gas mileage and despite plenty of wet weather I didn't hydroplane with the worn tires. But I'll never use Economy Rent a Car again.
