Read allot of reviews before hand. People complained about the time it took to get the car. My experience was lovely from reception desk to driving the car out of the car park in 20 mins.
Nothing we had a great experience.

Add more free Kilometres for long distance,because some of us use this service for longer distance especially during holidays!
Overall am happy with the service...
AlanApril 17, 2017
Staff very friendly and helpful with directions
Paperwork took very long

The Hyundai H1 is the perfect vehicle to tour through the Kruger Park. Ample room, great air-conditioning, ample power and a fantastic automatic gearbox.
The vehicle was not clean. Very dusty interior. I recommend that Budget provide closer supervision to this area of their business. One expects a clean vehicle, not the superficial clean they provide.

Good service, friendly and helpful staff. Car was in good condition.
We arrived late at night. Understandebly there was less staff but this also meant that we had to wait long before the person in charge could help us as he was already helping somebody else.

Great car for that price
sophiaMarch 24, 2017
The front tyres were completely worn and on returninig the car I did mention it and it was noted on the windscreen to be replaced . Just a pity that I had to use it in that condition on bad roads of SA, it can and could have been dangerous.

Friendly and helpful
Long queues - but staff handled everything very well
PeterMarch 17, 2017
Very good service by Budget staff at Pick Up and at Drop Off.
Car as a bit under-powered for its size.
JohnMarch 14, 2017
Smooth, quiet car
March 13, 2017
The air conditioner wasn't working
FelixMarch 3, 2017
Easy travel as the car was ready and waiting for me even before I got off the plane.
March 1, 2017
Helpful, good-natured, well turned out staff.
There were defects on the car that had not been noted so had to stop at the outer office to have the vehicle reinspected and scuffs etc recorded.
fionaFebruary 27, 2017

February 27, 2017

ThomasFebruary 26, 2017
New and clean car. East to drop the car. Helpful personal at drop off.
It took too time to pick up the car.
AnetteFebruary 26, 2017
The frienly staff
I had a problem with deposit payment. Please provide card machines that can take debit cards. Not everyone have creditcards due to circumstances or personal choice. That would be great
February 23, 2017
we tented a tom-tom, which failed to work on the evening of the first day. This was a disaster s we knew nothing of the geography of Johannesburg. However after a series of phone calls, a man from Avis brought a replacement to the hotel--which was a very customer-friendly act and was much appreciated.
February 22, 2017
Car should have been automatic Car radio was a bit of a problem
KimFebruary 21, 2017
efficient and helpful
On picking up the car at OR Tambo I found the aircon didn't work by the time I had dropped my luggage off and found a branch to take the car to I was dripping wet and extremely cranky. My 8 year old was exhausted after a sleepless night on the plane. the car was changed but this took about 4 hours our of my first day of holiday.
KathleenFebruary 20, 2017
I was not feeling too well when I got to Johannesburg and needed a place to stay overnight and pick the car up the next day. Bianca from the rental desk was so much help to me.Thank you Bianca
ADAMFebruary 19, 2017
Super super helpful and friendly staff. They were awesome. The VW Polo TSI was perfect, good power, comfortable, fantastic fuel economy and excellent Bluetooth connectivity. Cruise control would have been the cherry on top for the long distance driving. Thank you so much!
First car (VW Polo Viva), had damage and exterior needed a wash. Asked for a VW Polo TSI which took some time. Having driven a Polo Viva around the mountains in Cape Town it was very underpowered. I would advise upgrading all Polos to TSI's.

We understand a particular make and model cannot be guaranteed but we got the exact make and model of car we booked after five years of booking with you - very much appreciated. There was a stone chip on the windscreen when I brought the car back and my agreement wasn't returned so I'm not sure what to do now - but otherwise exceptional service.
February 10, 2017
Very easy to return the car!
Much too long to pick up the car!

Not much.

The Budget Staff were excellent and made sure that we were totally satisfied with our car -- both on arrival and departure -- it is a tribute to Budget Rental Company for such well trained staff -- congratulations to them all
RAMOLELWANEDecember 6, 2016
The agent who helped me was friendly
The process was a bit too slow
December 5, 2016
Fast and quick pick up and drop off
Next time I will pick a car that can handle the fast traffic on highways better. Little slow to gain speed.
PeterDecember 4, 2016

AlanNovember 24, 2016
Smooth service - decent car - in 'as new' condition
Everything was fine
November 14, 2016
quick and easy picking up car and returning it. Staff were nice and helpful.
we got no paperwork when handing in the car. I got vw instead of a toyota corolla which i ordered/chose because of boot space. I got charged for electronic tolls a week later but no invoice.
November 14, 2016
The fact that the there no new charges and the efficiency of the staff.
RobertNovember 9, 2016
Good car for touring in Kruger National Park. Very spacious and economical.
Being hit by an elephant which left a large dent in the rear passenger side of the car. The elephant was OK. I am awaiting feedback from Budget.
November 7, 2016
Great team
October 27, 2016
Due to the training schedule, I had to book the car two hours into a "new" day (24hours). I was notified that even if I bring the car back before the next day starts, I will not get the day off on my account.
CharlOctober 21, 2016
Professional service from rentalcars.com from the start and the overall service from Budget.
A bit unsure about costs regarding E-tag (Toll) and extra money they wanted to put aside that was not discussed previously.
PhilOctober 18, 2016
Car was good, service at pick up was very slow though.
Hired a GPS. It was expensive and didn't work as expected. No instructions. No full refund provided. Poor level of service in this regards.
ArnoldOctober 18, 2016
All went smooth and - thank you.
