LilyOctober 30, 2017
Got a free upgrade - but only after WE realised out that our car was not available Very easy to reserve and pay for the car Helpful staff
The car could have been cleaner No official inspection of the car was carried out. The car had a few scrappes, so was worried if we would be held liable for them.

Drop-off process, lady did not actually check the car and shuttle was late (we waited 25mins instead of every 5 mins) and did not even take us to the terminal but to another terminal from where to take another bus...

Excellent staff
JanineSeptember 15, 2017
Amail-(I think that is his name) is fantastic, very efficient and great customer service and great multi tasked - if all reps were like him the car hire business would not lose customers

DerekJuly 25, 2017
The Desk associate made sure I got my requested vehicle herself. Very glad she did and I didn't mind waiting a little longer for it.
Went I returned the vehicle the attendant who checked in the vehicle didn't give me information or assistant. I had to go in and wait.

RodneyMay 25, 2017
Inclusive rental price. good value. Good quality vehicle.
Long delay picking up the car. No tenough service points. No baggage carts when I returned the car. Service clearly overloaded. GPS rental device unstable and unreliable. Potentially dangerous. Very unhappy

StephenApril 23, 2017
Ease of finding counter, gave me options of other cars to upgrade to
Didn't get the car I booked (they do not supply that model) tried to get me to upgrade to higher grade car (ie more $per day on top) I made a one way drop off at different airport and could not pay in cash, I had to pay on credit card.
AntonioMarch 9, 2017
Eazy Pass should be on the car but it wasn´t.
EduardoJanuary 13, 2017
the gps was registrated as a tablet and caused confusion at the car return.
BrianJanuary 9, 2017
I would use Budjet again ... car on pickup was not really clean internally. But staff was responsive and timely. Drop off was very easy. On my second rental they upgraded my rental which helped with snowy conditions. Good staff keeps customers. Everyone was pleasant and helpful
Car was not clean internally.
MeilinDecember 30, 2016
Great staff and very quick service.
StephenDecember 9, 2016
Friendliness of agent serving me, also her professional manner.
The length of time to get from arrivals to collection desk.. there should really be more prominent signs leading people to where they need to go.. some of the people working near baggage claim didn't even know where the car collection desk was!!!
November 28, 2016
Exact car.. First in years!
Pick up time was longggg!
September 13, 2016
Quality and cleanliness of the car.
The bonnet had been left open by whoever had inspected the vehicle and I had to stop on the highway to secure it. It was only the safety catch that prevented the bonnet from flying open altogether. Not impressed I'm afraid !
HeinrichSeptember 3, 2016
more attendants
space to small
LitaAugust 30, 2016
Jacquelyn was very accommodating and went out of her way to see that we had a vehicle fit our needs. As I needed to accommodate a wheelchair and bags
August 29, 2016
The counter staff was very friendly and upgraded without me asking as he noticed it was my birthday the day prior!
Drop off, the Budget office (within a city car park) was unattended and the "security" guard relieved me of the car and keys and said the Budget employee was "on a break" and would email me the final receipt - which I have not yet received 24 hours after dropping off the car. No one therefore officially checked the vehicle and I'm concerned.
August 18, 2016
performance of the car
did not have the care that we prepaid , have to paid mor for another car.
August 17, 2016
Car was new and comfortable
Boot size was a little small.
DavidAugust 16, 2016
The staff in the office were excellent and gave great customer service.
AnthonyAugust 11, 2016
Counter staff at Budget JFK were extremely helpful. We were staying at several locations on route to Orlando, counter staff preprogrammed our Satnav with all hotels. thankyou
PETERJuly 26, 2016
Hi, Your front desk staff need to try to get the line moving faster.
July 26, 2016
Had no problems with the car
No GPS was given. We had to ask for one. Returning the car to the airport
July 25, 2016
I had to make a note of existing scratches on the car myself after having to enquire about the process of recording existing damage. Not very transparent.
PaulJuly 5, 2016
No question at all when they had to change the car at a different location 200 miles away because the SatNav did not work.
I was given a slightly smaller and less powerful car than I had booked.
June 4, 2016
Flexibility, upgrading to navigation and EZ pass possible
Car was not cleaned, booking Information had to be repeated at counter
May 25, 2016
I droped the car in a different location, just for conveniency I believe such location should work or have a person available 24/7 or at least at the business time, i tried to dropped it on Satuday, but it closes at 4pm.
As mentioned above.
ThomasMay 22, 2016
The unbelievable compassion from the staff as we had some logistical problems !!!!!
May 21, 2016
So glad I took the suggested upgrade. It was a great car.
Nothing, overall good experience
April 19, 2016
Over all pretty good. The GPS wasn't great quality and wasn't always clear at junctions.
