Great car Hyundai Accent and everything went like clockwork.
AndrewMay 18, 2017
The young guy at pick up (sorry, don't know his name) was really friendly and helpful. A pleasure to deal with.

The ease of the drop off
It was a hassle getting to the rental desk on the bus with cases etc.I thought I was getting a ford focus but was give a smaller nissan which was in the same group it appeared smaller.
December 18, 2016
Overall experience
Upgraded due to snowy conditions, though the price was a little high.
EricOctober 13, 2016
the car (Ford Focus) is good
The car rental building is too far from the airport. The bus is not convenient.
October 3, 2016
The car was what I ordered and not something similar
I had a clear booking and the agent did not seem to know what I was renting or did not care. I will check my CC to see if included things such as NAV are billed again. Basic overselling.

I didn't get the exact car (Avenger), but the one I got (Cruze) was fantastic.
Budget rental desk girl. No baggage carts around when returning the car.

Very good system at Seattle with all car hire firms in a custom built off airport site, with excellent shuttle service. Budget desk very easy to find and good staff communications.
Always try to give an upgrade. No need for this as if needed, I would do it online when booking.
JohnSeptember 11, 2016
Vehicle was roomy and OK for our trip
The time it took to pick up the vehicle. We were not familiar with the models available so did not know what type of vehicle we were being offered. Overall, it took nearly two hours from clearing the airport and getting on the road. Not what we wanted after a 10 hour flight
September 11, 2016
Car drove well, economical on gas.
Bodywork was poor, dashboard was not very clean.
StevenAugust 21, 2016
Very good for the money.
Cleaners had missed the back seats which had popcorn all over the place. Not a real problem, but not clean.
EdwinAugust 19, 2016
The lass on the counter was very informative and recommended a Ford C max over the Focus, a new model hybrid, very interesting
Returning the car!!!!!
PeterAugust 18, 2016
Great car!
Too long waiting for pick-up
PeterAugust 15, 2016
The friendliness of the staff
The finest car I was given all the batteries in the key where removed, so they gave me a better car.
DitlevAugust 3, 2016
the service at the desk
the car called for service for the last two Days of the renting period. the car wasnt Clean inside.
August 2, 2016
location was easy
Morning staff were unhelpful and unfriendly, offered no Hello or smile. didn't offer advise on nearest gas station, any info on peak hour traffic into seattle
JoanJuly 14, 2016
The assistant was very knowledgable and helpful
I think we should have chosen a higher grade car as we were disappointed with the Nissan
AngelaApril 20, 2016
Very little mileage on car, so fairly new, it was very clean. It is good to have a car with seats that can be adjusted in more than 2 ways (like the old days) as it improves comfort so much and makes a difference to aging 'delicate' backs. We choose our car according to the comfort/shape and adjustability of the seats.
DavidApril 16, 2016
I had my first experience of driving a hybrid car and found it fascinating. The return of the car at 3.30 am was handled faultlessly.
I'd rather not go off site to collect the car.
SteveJanuary 24, 2016
I got a brand new car, and they gave me a upgrade without any problems because the other cars was no longer available.
no fault of the rental car company, but it turned out i needed a 4x4 for some of the roads i wanted to drive. I did not know this upfront.
StephenOctober 7, 2015
Vehicle had a dreadful off side blind spot when using door mirror.
DavidSeptember 29, 2015
Counter staff unable to cope with rental cars terms ie could not understand a full tank of petrol had been prepaid as it didn't fit their system.
August 24, 2015
Back tires had low pressure.
WillemAugust 16, 2015
Very efficient drop-off
August 3, 2015
Excellent Staff
Car bit noisy
July 31, 2015
We received Chevrolet Impala in a great condition. Enjoyed driving it.
Your website indicated that SEA Budget is located at the terminal. This is why we chose it over the other rental companies for which you indicated -shuttle to rentals. Were very disappointed to find out, after wondering around the terminal with heavy luggage, that Budget requires a shuttle like all others.
June 24, 2015
The car. Fast return.
The employee at the desk tried to sell me options I've already payed for.
StefanNovember 17, 2014
everything was perfect..
JonathanOctober 29, 2014
So Easy, pleasant staff. Top Marks.
October 13, 2014
Efficiency and speed of pick up and return
Need to take the shuttle
AndrewOctober 8, 2014
Excellent speedy service. Nice car.
The aerial would not retract and this should have been spotted before the car was sent out on the road.
PeterSeptember 1, 2014
Very fast pick up and no heavy sell of 'extras'
Interior could have been cleaner.
JamesAugust 20, 2014
Car was clean, in good condition, ran great, good gas mileage. Even had a new car smell. So no complaints.
The line at the rental counter was ridiculously long, but the staff did they best they could to work through it. Still a 30 minute wait to get the car though. I am told that's typical of Seattle in the summer.
August 18, 2014
Excellent service, Brand new car. Also we were able to return to a different depot due to fight problems for no extra charge which was excellent customer service.
June 26, 2014
Thank you for s good experience. Appreciate dropping off in snother location.
KeithJune 24, 2014
Counter Staff inefficient and slow, and lacking in enhausiasm.
GabrielleMay 1, 2014
No hidden costs, great services from representatives (polite, helpful). Terms were clear from the start.
No problems.
April 25, 2014
no mainual in the car, which was not practical with modern electtronics installed
KrassimirApril 8, 2014
I recommend that after the proposal for car upgrade at the counter to offer at least 2 options for substitute vehicle since they did not have the one I originally have chosen and was happy with. Therefore it felt almost disappointing as I missed again to finally test drive an all American built car. Having me said that I ended up driving away in a Mazda instead of a Dodge Avenger. Anyway Budget is still my preferred car rental Co.
February 13, 2014
Very good value for money.
Don't upsell at point of collection. When your tired from the journey the last thing you need is to fend of an upsell. No instructions on how to start car. Took 30 mins.
February 5, 2014
Nice facility at SeaTac
Hard sell tactics buy budget counter staff. I also forgot to account for extra time to drop off because of remote facility, but it all worked out.
