the insurance is expensive
GavinSeptember 5, 2017
Budget car rental were very efficient and friendly. I was lucky to get upgraded from a 'polo' size car to a "Qashqai '.

Helpful staff, condition of car, quick rental procedure when at desk.
Queueing with customers who have not made a booking - there should be a 'fast' lane for pre-booked or regular customers. The fact that the rental price of my car dropped by 10% a couple of days before pick-up. Should be a reward scheme for regular customers. The fuel policy....removal and return of cost of petrol to credit card.

Staff: A gentleman named Darron was extremely helpful and very receptive to my needs as a customer I believe. And my Mother thought he was a great reception when entering the country.
The body scuff on the rear of the vehicle, however I video recorded the car before we drove from Dublin Airport upon the 1st Sept 2017. you may view it if you wish.

Prompt and friendly service On this occasion I completed the paperwork at the airport - which I would prefer- then picked up the car at the collection desk at the car rental return site
I was given a diesel car but had requested a petrol car. It was not an issue though and the fuel was cheaper.

There was no person to bring us to the Car and check the marked damages on the car together. The price for the fuel is far away from the real price. But it was my own fault to forget filling the tank before...
AnthonyAugust 31, 2017
Helpful and courteous staff. Fast return of car.
Loss of money on fuel deposit. Difference in exchange rate when refunded cost me money.

SeamusAugust 23, 2017
Once I got to Dublin, I realized that we were staying about 1km from the Drumcondra branch. I contacted Budget and they were quite happy to change the collection & drop off point from the airport to there, which was fantastic and they changed the car to a diesel which made the fuel costs cheaper, so very happy. Fantastic service.
Nothing really.

I didn't need to go out to the car hire centre via the shuttle bus. This was helpful as our flight arrived later at night and we had a 3 hr onward journey. It meant we were on the road much quicker.
The wiper blades in the car were at the end of their lifespan which was a problem given the torrential rain. This was mentioned when the vehicle was returned.
ChrisAugust 21, 2017
Speed, staff and price.
MohsenAugust 21, 2017
I am supposed to have an AC in the car but I didn't get that. Luckily the weather didn't require much of an AC.
August 20, 2017
I found the first car I picked up has a problem. Then I got an upgrade. Budget should make sure every car they hand it to the customer no problem.
MylesAugust 19, 2017
Nice new car
I would rather the insurance was fully comprehensive as standard
August 19, 2017
Good car and efficient service. Note that whether I'd recommend Budget over another firm would be price sensitive also.
Not made clear to us that there were toll roads we'd encounter almost immediately. Luckily we were able to get info from a passenger with an iPad but otherwise that would have been very difficult.

Realatively hassle free
Delay but holiday weekend
August 16, 2017
Car ran very smoothly and had some zip to it.
August 14, 2017
Car was clean. Staff friendly.
Took a long time to get the paperwork done, then a long time until the Bdget bus came to pick us up to the rental parking. The staff member did not walk with us to the car so I had to go back to the office to report additional scratches. But he was smiling and friendly. Next time I will take a digital image of the car from all sides.

Really convenient having the Clio with the GPS in the car. Super drive and nifty!
August 6, 2017
Very friendly staff. We had booked a car without airco, but we got one with airco.
Dashboard indicator for problem with airbag lit up when we drove off. This should have been noticed before the car was given to us (however, we didn't experience any trouble with airbag).
