PeterOctober 25, 2017
Car had bump not recorded on pick up documents. Return staff checked their photos and confirmed it was there at pick up. OK it should have been recorded but staff sorted it without any hassle.
PatrickOctober 24, 2017
Had to take car back when a warning light appeared, appreciated the no-quibble approach, was given a new car immediately so that I did not have to wait until the hire staff checked out the problem
DavidOctober 17, 2017
Staff were really helpful both James at the Airport and Cairen at the pick up.
I do find the need to purchase additional insurance to protect excess very frustrating particularly when its mote expensive than the actual hire rate.

The shuttle bus driver took absolutely ages to come back to the bus. He didn't explain where he was going or how long he would be.

Faster pickup time than other providers at Dublin airport.

First women I dealt with was not very helpful. The rest were fine.
MrsOctober 5, 2017
Very good. Couldnt fault the hire company budget. Location to pick up the car was also good and they set up my sat na. Also liked the fact that there was a gas station 3 min drive past the entrances to all the hire company's so could easily fuel up. Was open 24 hrs self help and pay with card. No cash so need a card as not manned. Thankyou budget.
Was nothing I did not like on this visit x

When I picked up the car, there was some non-trivial damage (inc. a missing trim) that was not recorded on the damage sheet. So I had to go back to office to get this added before I could depart.

StephenSeptember 6, 2017
The rental desk process could be streamlined to reduce the amount of time spent completing forms and taking the necessary payments/deposits.
September 6, 2017

LucianaSeptember 5, 2017
the insurance is expensive
GavinSeptember 5, 2017
Budget car rental were very efficient and friendly. I was lucky to get upgraded from a 'polo' size car to a "Qashqai '.
September 5, 2017
Helpful staff, condition of car, quick rental procedure when at desk.
Queueing with customers who have not made a booking - there should be a 'fast' lane for pre-booked or regular customers. The fact that the rental price of my car dropped by 10% a couple of days before pick-up. Should be a reward scheme for regular customers. The fuel policy....removal and return of cost of petrol to credit card.
GarySeptember 4, 2017
Staff: A gentleman named Darron was extremely helpful and very receptive to my needs as a customer I believe. And my Mother thought he was a great reception when entering the country.
The body scuff on the rear of the vehicle, however I video recorded the car before we drove from Dublin Airport upon the 1st Sept 2017. you may view it if you wish.
September 3, 2017

AlisonSeptember 2, 2017
Prompt and friendly service On this occasion I completed the paperwork at the airport - which I would prefer- then picked up the car at the collection desk at the car rental return site
I was given a diesel car but had requested a petrol car. It was not an issue though and the fuel was cheaper.
September 1, 2017
Found them very efficient and excellent service
Radio very bad in car. Non Existent in fact
September 1, 2017
The staff were friendly and efficient. Good location of the office for public transportation and driving in/out of Dublin.
A small office, can be quite crowded and slow as it was on oyr pick up. Hassle of credit card debit for fuel on pick-up and return after drop-off if it was full.
August 31, 2017
There was no person to bring us to the Car and check the marked damages on the car together. The price for the fuel is far away from the real price. But it was my own fault to forget filling the tank before...
AnthonyAugust 31, 2017
Helpful and courteous staff. Fast return of car.
Loss of money on fuel deposit. Difference in exchange rate when refunded cost me money.
August 26, 2017

August 23, 2017
Excellent service from friendly and professional staff. Thanks
SeamusAugust 23, 2017
Once I got to Dublin, I realized that we were staying about 1km from the Drumcondra branch. I contacted Budget and they were quite happy to change the collection & drop off point from the airport to there, which was fantastic and they changed the car to a diesel which made the fuel costs cheaper, so very happy. Fantastic service.
Nothing really.
August 21, 2017
I didn't need to go out to the car hire centre via the shuttle bus. This was helpful as our flight arrived later at night and we had a 3 hr onward journey. It meant we were on the road much quicker.
The wiper blades in the car were at the end of their lifespan which was a problem given the torrential rain. This was mentioned when the vehicle was returned.
