The ease with which I could book, collect and return the car.
Nothing really!

The desk could not confirm whether the car was to be filled up with regular petrol or diesel.

The car was nice. We booked a Dodge Caravan but ended up getting a Ford Flex. We kept it for about two weeks. It was a very nice car.
The location is not easy to reach. Our friend drove us to retrieve the car. It took us more than 20 minutes to get there. It may be easier by the electric rail car.

Great car and Budget staff were very friendly.
Unfortunately, the person that rented the car prior to me using it smoked. The car smelled of smoke which with my allergies and a teen age son, did not go well. I know I should have exchanged the car but time did not permit and I thought the smell would did not.

Fairly straightforward pick up and drop off, helped by it being a quiet time for incoming flights.
As always, we did not get the car we requested......we never have with Budget. It's the or "similar" car which is a disappointment.

Very short queue. Helpful staff.
I requested for an EZ Pass and was told that all cars came with one and there was nothing to worry about. So I went along my merry way passing through EZ pass toll booths not realizing that the scanner couldn't pick up my EZ Pass. It would have been helpful had I been informed that the EZ Pass needed to be uncovered for the scanner to detect it.

Ease of access to and from the airport. WOULD RECOMMEND RENTAL CARS
Blind spot on offside mirror. Rear window small. No vehicle manual which made operating the vehicle difficult. Budget desk clerk unaware a full tank of gas was included in the deal.

Very good

Good experience overall
Car had some dents and scratches and was not as clean as it should (mirrors)
July 3, 2015
I thought I had booked and paid for a car with a full tank of fuel online, but this turned out not to be the case.
ALANJune 7, 2015
did every thing it should
the hire costs generally at Newark seem more expensive than other usa locations. this applied to all car rental firms not just Budget

Very good service

Fine car in good condition, efficient and friendly staff
Too many additional charges
NaomiAugust 1, 2014
Effient & super-friendly staff. The lady went out of her way to help me find a medical facility for my daughter who became ill and even gave her something to help her stomach... Way above call of duty!
The only car available that would accommodate 6 people plus a small amount of luggage was a Suburban, which is gigantic for ordinary British drivers to cope with... I had pre-paid my booking and requested a minivan at the time so that was a little disappointing. Still, my husband now has bragging rights that he has basically driven a truck around NYC!

Gentleman who came to show us the GPS was lovely. Car was clean and drove well.
Charged extra for GPS, despite booking before we went - it should have been $6 ish, ended up paying about $60 with taxes. I was told it was a holiday in the US(July 4th) therefore more expensive. Also staff could have said how easy filling up with gas at the airport would have been - paid for a tank as I was afraid I wouldn't find the station bug it was as I drove in - nit very supportive of foreign travellers.
MartinJune 28, 2014
Decent vehicle in good clean condition. Friendly and helpful staff. Comprehensive and fair fuel policy.
We had booked a modest medium sized car but they didn't have one so upgraded us free to a seven seater 'minivan'. I'm used to driving big vehicles so it didn't matter that much but it could have done and makes one wonder about the point of booking in the first place.
RussellMay 22, 2014
The car was great, the staff friendly.
The car could have been cleaner, and it wasn't quite full of gas.
CarlMay 18, 2014
all the above
being put on a bus and packed in like cattle to get to the terminal.not bugets fault and only for a short time but airport should treat people better
April 28, 2014
All fine...
Didnt understand that the gas option will cost an extra 50$... The staff was not particularly keen to explain...
