Car was excellent, great mileage and very zippy. I used it on motorways and small narrow streets and the car always performed well. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Not a thing.
January 5, 2018
Car is excellent, staff is very polite.
Greek penalties for traffic violation is very huge, staff should notify customer about it. The parking system in Athens is strange, it could be mentioned to.

Very good and reliable rent car company. Always no problems.
December 11, 2017
Easy to find the Budget desk and easy to find the car.
This is not really a dislike but it seems that both Avis and Budget are actually the same firm - or at least shared facilities which was just a little confusing.
JohnOctober 26, 2017
Ease of pick up and drop off.
October 18, 2017
PEUGEOT 308 is a nice car and very useful but has some design fault like : * wheel hide part of the dashboard * controlling the fan is under some touch on the menu * no bluetooth ? no CD player ?
Budget gave me the car, fuel tank was not full and no water for the wipers.
AdnantOctober 16, 2017
nice car
front brakes a bit noise but apart from that it was good
SerhiiOctober 14, 2017
Minimum time to pick the car up and to drop off. Easy to find all the facilities.
Car is is an average technical condition. Milage is rather high - 60 K km.
JohnOctober 4, 2017
Full to full policy; possible to collect at the airport and drop off in down-town Athens. Very friendly staff at both locations.
A minor point - no means to connect/play iPod that we could find.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Easy access on a main street in Athens.
Petrol tank was not full on pickup. Not a big deal, but would have been nice. The clutch system was a little faulty.
September 2, 2017
very helpful staff & assistance in getting an upgrade
Signage for Car Rental at Athens airport is really poor. First sign approaching airport is OK but sign showing where to turn in is hidden behind some road side bushes & appears ver suddenly - I missed it twice!

JoakimJuly 19, 2017
Everything was perfect
PeterJuly 17, 2017
staff was very helpful, at pick up and drop off
the car was an Alfa Romero Guietta. It was an automatic. It was underpowered and the transmission labored between gears. It was not a good fit for the mountains. The car did not give us confidence when we needed it.

All good

The AC was not working, a window was did not function properly. The quality of the gasoline in the tank was very poor making the car very slow.

Although it was mentioned at the counter that we needed the car for the snowed mountains the car was not properly equipped for the snow. the Avis agents who served Budget were not very polite.
ANTONISNovember 14, 2016

September 16, 2016
No directions to the car rental parking when exiting the terminal. We got lost on the way. Also on the way to return the car it was unclear where to leave it
StefanosSeptember 11, 2016

September 8, 2016
New and clean car.
The person in the counter tried to give me an old car in the beginning, however I have explained him that I do not like old cars that is why he gave me a new (few thousand kms) car with some additional small cost.
EDUARDOAugust 25, 2016
The process was quick (albeit at the Avis desk, not Budget's which had closed).
The car was old (4 years +) and not in great condition, e.g. the a/c didn't work particularly well and the windscreen wipers were damaged and totally ineffective. Overall the car felt like it needed a full service.
HarriJuly 13, 2016
Easy pick up and return the car.
Condition of the car was poor. Only to drive on number one gear. AC was not working properly. Show error code all the time, could not find manual in english to look the code. Looked for a silver colour at the car park as promised, find a black car.
