Quick and easy
car had no remote access key. car hire costs have increased substantially over the last few years
MichaelDecember 13, 2016
The car was not my first choice, however, when the snow hit it was good that the care was heavier.
When people come in from far away places all they want is the car ready and no sudden sales pitches or surprises. People are tired and vulnerable. Just be sure they get what they asked for. Dont try to sell them extras when they are tired.

Ease of finding a downtown location that was open on a Sunday
No Sat Nav available in the car I was provided with as I would have purchased this if it had been available.
GERARDNovember 15, 2016
Car that I rented
Overcharged in error and had to contact Budget for a refund
MariaNovember 4, 2016
Got car I booked with no complications at pick up.
A quick run through of the car would be helpful.
SchererOctober 27, 2016
Very good car. The drop off in Miami was done in less than 10 min. Perfect
Since Nashville I had the message "Change engine oil" displayed. It was of course not a Problem but if you know, that somebody will drive the car from Chicago to Miami....the car should not be close to an Inspection.

Very quick transaction and very friendly and helpful staff
MILESSeptember 11, 2016
Very simple to book, easy to pick up and drop off
The excessive charge for returning the car to another destination other than West Fullerton Avenue
August 18, 2016
They were very forthcoming. They even brought us to American Airlines Terminal with the car we were using as we had much luggage.
I did not agree with all the charges they made, but this point I will take up with Budget directly.

Customer service when picking up the car; the staff could not have been more helpful as we needed to upgrade to fit in all of our luggage.

Good arrangement.
Location 10 mins plus from Airport. But that applied to all! Poor signposting if coming in not on interstate highways

Very long pick up time because of 1) weather conditions 2) "car misplaced"
CanturkOctober 5, 2015
Brand New Vehicle Nice & Friendly Staff Good Price
The first vehicle was not at the parking lot. It was raining hard and I had to search the whole parking lot to find my vehicle. I had to walk back to rental office again and tell them the car I was supossed to get was not there. They gave me a second vehicle but this one was not very clean.Finally they gave me a third one. This one was good.

Time it took to get the car. It was a long wait for the shuttle bus. It was a very long wait to get to the rep who could process the hire.
August 25, 2015
Car was suitable. Was some attempt to upsell but was not a hard sell from the rep.
Car was not fully cleaned. There was rubbish and sweets in the door pockets and crumbs left on two of the bench seats. There was some damage to plastic side skirt on the passenger side that was not notified. I also do not agree to have to pay additionally for a child seat when hiring a car for almost £1000.

After difficulties in 2013 in Chicago with a Dollar Thrifty vehicle, (hired via "Car Trawler Ltd") and then a fight for recompense, I was determined to get a serviceable car, and your staff were sympathetic with my views and very helpful
May 28, 2015
Returning the car was very quick and efficient. Got straight on a bus to get to the terminal. No waiting around.
The Car was fairly dirty on the outside. The counter staff were only interested in selling you upgrades. As soon as you said no to the upgrades they really did not seem to care. They did not even look at you when talking!

The car I got. plenty of room, nifty back door handle.
I really didn't like your rep trying to convince me to upgrade - at more cost. I ordered what I wanted....and had no desire to pay more.
