The fact that I had not printed off my booking and had taken photo of computer screen. The fact that my phone decided to play dead did not phase Curtis in the Rental Office in Exeter. He had all my details to hand and brought me through the various additions and conditions very clearly. Overall experience very good
Only a small comment which is really not Budget's problem but finding a petrol Station easily before returning the vehicle to the Airport proved a little difficult. Found one in the end. I have this problem all the time wherever I go.

New car
Slight walk to the car

Helpful staff, clean car.
Bit of a walk from the car park in the rain but not a huge problem
MartinFebruary 19, 2017

PhilFebruary 15, 2017

Very smooth Nice staff Good car
Not getting the exact model I booked
November 7, 2016
easy to find the car. Friendly helpful staff. I had to alter the hire period at the last minute and staff were great
Picking up the car in the dark and not being able to adjust the steering column - a torch would have made it possible. I could not see the speedo in the motorway. In daylight adjustment was easy!
CarolineOctober 28, 2016
Speed and efficiency of Kurtis on picking up the car
Poor signage in the car park which meant I drove around five times before locating the exit barrier. Lack of information regarding the petrol door release....I specifically asked where it was on this car as I have had problems before. I was told it was either under the dash or necessary to push the door. This was wrong and I nearly missed my fligh

Very good friendly service,would recommend.
April 27, 2016
New car very clean
Not the exact car. Although its the same category not quite as big and a different shape that didn't fit our needs aswell
April 18, 2016
Very helpful staff. Good pickup and handover experience. Time take to pick up and drop off only extended because people were ahead of me in both queues.
Not the fault of staff but a delayed plane meant my car *may* not have been saved. The flight number was unknown at the time of booking. It might be clearer that this is the purpose of stating the flight number so that I would have informed budget of it when I knew the details.
February 29, 2016
Very difficult to find filling station - a map should be given when you pick up the car.
RobertJanuary 14, 2016
customer service and value of car
Car not big enough and thought it was when choosing on internet site.

Car Service Staff manner and taking time to explain about the car Efficient pick up and drop off Good communications
RichardSeptember 25, 2015
Ease of access to counter at the airport and short walk to collection point
No representative available to check the car when I dropped it off
September 14, 2015
The fact that the car was a VW was helpful because that is the make of my own car.
No dislikes
RobertSeptember 10, 2015
Ease of sorting out the details and transaction I had booked without any fuss.
The walking distance from rental office to the car park including many pavement steps and bumps... No fun in the rain,but overall it was ok.
August 27, 2015
We could smell cigarette smoke in the car, only faintly but as non smokers it was evident.
August 15, 2015
How quick and easy it was to pick up
Even though it came with free insurance wasn't happy having to pay for extra insurance incase wing mirror was broken or broken windscreen etc
August 4, 2015
Everything was perfect with the Cristopher perfect sevice at the Exeter Sevice.
markAugust 4, 2015
felt like i was a good customer
July 26, 2015
Everything was smooth and completely hassle free. Staff were very welcoming and when I accidentally left my umbrella in the car at the end of the hire staff sought me out on the airport bus I was waiting on to return it to me! Overall an excellent service
July 22, 2015
Easy pick up at the station
Delayed drop off. The agent wasn't there as planned and we nearly missed our train.
LindaJuly 20, 2015
Everything was easy from booking to pick and return
There was nothing to dislike

Top ser ice
June 2, 2015
Comfortable clean car
Lack of instruction in basic controls. Other companies I use ensure someone in car park to go over car with you and help with any controls. The built in sat nav was programmed in German, took some time to figure out ourselves.
vincentMay 26, 2015
Very good service
directions to the car location
JamesMay 18, 2015
Speed of return. Good car. Politeness of staff.
I turned up 60 mins early, and the car wasn't ready/clean; shouldn't be that tight at such a quiet rental location.
GeorgeMay 13, 2015
The ease of driving.
Scared of the vehicle being hit.
April 20, 2015
Easy pick up and drop off
Given a voucher that didn't work to exit car park
JeanetteApril 18, 2015
At the car parking area it was not easy to find staff to pick up and return car. The member of staff was busy moving cars but he was very pleasant and helpful. Better signage for a pick up drop off point. Might help
February 6, 2015
Road signs around Exeter Airport (with the current diversions) are terrible. But that's not the fault of the rental car ;-)
January 24, 2015
Car damage was under reported. Had to return to desk to change damage report.
January 19, 2015
Excellent value for a great car. Easily found at rental car park. No fuss when booking in and leaving back.
BarryJanuary 18, 2015
Young man was waiting at the station for me when I picked the car up and was very helpful.
Didn't like the Corsa would have preferred the I30 but it did the job. Didn't like the drop off. Had to leave car in 20 min parking bay and hand keys to third party. Couldn't find a petrol station so was unable to refuel would have preferred to speak to rep but it wasn't possible
CarolineJanuary 7, 2015
no hassle when returning the car brand new car
no clear instructions for returning the car
DanielJanuary 1, 2015
We liked the ease of renting a car with Budget and was even more pleasantly surprised at the high quality of service your staff showed us. The whole experience definitely has made us think of Budget first when hiring a car in the future. Well done...keep up the fab work! :)
We can't think of any faults to note here....top marks Budget! :)

We liked that the car was dropped off and collected at the train station. Ben was great.
