MarkOctober 3, 2017
Service from the staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful.
I would have preferred a similar car to that booked, ie a small cross over not a standard 5 door hatchback.
RobertSeptember 20, 2017
Helpful & friendly staff
Car was grimy inside, particularly the windscreen
September 4, 2017
Problem finding a parking space when returning car on Sunday!!!
August 23, 2017
Upgraded to a Golf as we were travelling with a lot of stuff. Overall car was great, no problems and made very easy by having Rentalcars account.
The wait to pick it up was a little long, plenty of people using the same company and ended up hanging around for about 15 minutes!

being provided with ready printed damage condition report and then finding other slight damage not listed. Better to be able to check physical condition of vehicle with staff member on pick up.

I liked the man on the desk when i collected the car. He was very friendly but efficient. The car was great. Very cheap to run.

Very easy. And quick
Car vision was not good. Couldn't see clearly to reverse and couldn't see the bonnet end. Hence very difficult to park.
JoyceJuly 6, 2017
The staff were very helpful. The car was just what we needed.
I can't think of anything.
DuncanJune 27, 2017
Ease of hire
AdrianJune 11, 2017
Friendliness and courtesy of the desk staff. The vehicles always seem to be Renault Capture or Vauxhall Mokka X in that group which I like for the boot space.
Wish you could drop off the key in the departures building or in the car park. Having to take baggage to the depot on the way back is an unnecessary inconvenience, especially if running a bit late.

Good person on the counter
May 24, 2017
Good car with usual accoutrements
Queuing for 50 minutes behind customers who had not reserved a car
BarryMay 23, 2017
Standard of car was superb along with performance and economy.
Although the car was very new it had been extensively affected by a smoker. With the hot weather conditions it meant the car was intensely disaffected by the pungent effects of nicotine. This was very unpleasant for us as life long non-smokers.

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.
RichardMay 4, 2017
New car
Slight walk to the car
March 28, 2017
Helpful staff, clean car.
Bit of a walk from the car park in the rain but not a huge problem
MartinFebruary 19, 2017
Excellant sales assistant
Que to pick up car. Could have done with a second person on duty at this busy time
PhilFebruary 15, 2017

HuguesNovember 20, 2016
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
AndrewSeptember 17, 2016
The duty manager was exceptionally helpful.
August 17, 2016

ThomasJuly 20, 2016

Easy car to drive Economical Friendly staff
May 21, 2016
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.
MichaelJanuary 7, 2016

October 15, 2015
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.
