Was forced to pick up and drop off at a non-preferred location. Unable to call/speak with anyone at preferred location. Was given incorrect information. Agent at drop off was great but too many other issues to warrant a better rating.

Same person helped us for check-in and drop off. She was great. Helped us find the right car that would work for us and was very nice.

Deposit was not mentioned anywhere. Not thrilled about the accident policy. Drop off address was not correct.

Airport staff was wonderful it was quick easy in and easy out for pickup and drop off. The vehicle itself had all the creature comforts including phone accessibility which helped with the long ride Bluetooth features for the phone etc.The only thing that could have been better was something a little closer to home but even the 25 minute ride to get the vehicle wasn't terrible.

Staff was friendly.The vehicle was filthy inside. There were crumbs everywhere in the back seats. The non smoking car was definitely smoked in a reeked of cigarettes. The navigation screen was busted. On top of all that, one of the tires had a significant leak and I had to put air in it several times. Very bad experience.

Paying nearly twice as much for rental cars as I have in the past. And don't get me started on gas prices. So not laying this on Budget. Businesses having to increase prices to survive due to rising costs, b/c the pandemic did its best to destroy our economy. Elections have consequences. Bad government far worse than the pandemic itself.
10.0 ExcellentOct 31 2021
Customer service reps at the counter were excellent. Car interior was stained pretty badly in back seat. Made me wonder if it had ever been cleaned.
8.0 ExcellentApr 12 2021
The staff was helpful, and pickup and drop off were easyThe car reeked of cigarettes. It was quite overpowering and I could smell it on my jacket after getting out of the car. As a family of non smokers, traveling with a young child, it was kind of gross and embarrassing.

4.4 OkayFeb 23 2018
The employee was kind and let me check-in early, the process overall was quick and efficient. No hard sell on extra services. Check-out was similarly efficient, same employee, he was kind and took care of the check-out even though I forgot my paperwork.The car was unclean and had a strong cigarette odor(I'm a non smoker). I took photos for my own sake, and would have asked for a second car if I wasn't late for an appointment. The odor stuck to my clothes and I smelled like cigarettes every time I got out of the rental.

Toaster car makes more than toast!I admit to being a little prejudiced towards the Kia Soul because of their ads featuring hamsters driving toasters, but I was pleased with its performance. Plenty of room, good visibility, and pep. Was a little rough ride over bumps and kinda awkward getting out of the car, but overall was acceptable. I would still never own one, but I'd be fine renting that model again. Budget made the rental process seamless.Ride was a little rough. Hard to get out of.

I reserved a premium SUV 1 week in advance. I called 2 days prior to pickup to make sure the car was there. The local merchant did not answer the phone, so I called the 1800 number to assure my vehicle was there. The vehicle I reserved was not there when I went to pick up and I was offered a minivan

Staff was friendly and helpful. Only issue was the address I was given to drop off the vehicle in Tucker, Ga, was not the location. My GPS took be to a totally different building. Needed to make a call to find where I was to go. Return desk acknowledged it has been an issue.Only car I have rented over the last couple of years that did not have active XSM radio or navigation.

OverchargedComfortable carI got charged double bc I didn't have my insurance card. I've never had to do that before. The agent was rude and condescending

Once more, Avis rents smelly, dirty cars from Roanoke, VAThe price was good for a dropped vehicle.Once again, Avis doesn't really clean the cars much in Roanoke; it wasn't as large a car as I had rented (I rented a full size and received a Nissan Sentra) and the car was so beat up on the outside that I was concerned that I might be charged for it. Fortunately, the Avis at Dulles Airport has the same sort of attitude of mediocrity in service, so they don't seem to care that they are renting dirty, worn out cars.

Clean and well equipped car. The agent was nice and professionalAgent not masked. Not informed when reserving that there would be an additional $200 deposit placed on my credit card. When at the counter I was told that it would be released upon return of car. I don’t know if it has been returned yet, but I was on a trip for an interview during the pandemic and placing an additional $200 would have made my rental decision clear Togo with a different company.

Great price for a 3 day weekend rental but couldn't get over how dirtyGreat price for a full size car and super quick easy pickup at the airport.Even though the price was great for a Hyundai Sonata we just couldn't get over how dirty, old, well used the car was. The car had close to 40,000 miles and looked it. Large deep scratch down the drivers side but the worst part was the filthy upholestry and windows. We had to stop 2 different times to clean all of the interior windows because you just couldn't see through the haze. The towels were black, literally black after wiping them down. The seats could not be cleaned. This was not a quick wipe up of a spill, this was deep down stained over the years dirty. While the price was great and it was indeed a nice large size car the dirty and super well used automobile makes me score a lot lower than usual.

they were closed at the appointed timeThe National desk at the airport wa closed when we arrived at the scheduled pick up time. We set up the rental to be picked up at 9pm, which should have given us the hour from 9-10 to pick up that vehicle. We arrived less than 5 minutes after 9 and the desk was unattended. No one tried to contact us to ask us to arrive earlier or explain that they couldn't honor the reservation. Completely unacceptable.
