Quick and easy hassle free pick up of the car.
July 9, 2018
The size was just what we required. No too small but small enough for driving the roads of SW Ireland. Also good ground clearance.
These days I would have expected GPS to be standard in a hire car. Also I wonder why the charge is higher for an automatic, when they are the most common vehicle.

friendly service, staff pleasant no hassle, car good quality, petrol refund done straight away, car price good
insurance a bit expensive but gives peace of mind, no problems with this rental

A lot of money is withdrawn early which can be inconvenient when traveling. I would actually like someone to look over the car with me when I return it so I don't get any surprise charges.

Lovely courteous young man on the counter. Great service and speed. Easy drop off as well and I was asked if everything was ok.

The model provided was exactly how announced, the counter staff was really professional and helpful.
The cleanliness in the car was poor, there was dust and the windows were dirty and unwashed.

worth building a good relation with the hire desk. And in this regard I have always found Budget most accommodating.
Would be nice if a receipt could be Mailed on conclusion.

I've used Budget in Cork several times and each time, service has been exceptional. The staff are knowledgeable and very helpful and just very nice to deal with. My flight was late last week and they kept desk open to ensure we got our car. Excellent service and best price too.

Position of the desk in the hall
Having to walk with my wife who has a disability to where the car was parked which was over half way up the car park. Car could have been brought to us!

Brilliant. Keep the prices low
No reverse beeps
January 8, 2018
Car was clean and roomy. Friendly service at the desk.
Some basic advice re: how to use some of the car's functions would be helpful, as had to google how to open petrol cap and get car into reverse.

Every thing was good, thanks
SebastienNovember 18, 2017
Natalia did a brilliant job! My car rental was refused last minute because I forgot I only had a debit card but she helped me to find another car supplier very quickly. I was able to do my last trip in Ireland thanks to her. Thanks so much!

The ease of returning the car
September 24, 2017
Didn't need to queue to pick up or drop off.
Didn't get the Clio I ordered, but the Corsa was not too bad. There was more damage on it than was recorded and it was not properly valeted.

Helpful counter staff (Harry) and quality of car.
Smell of stale cigarette smoke in car.
CatherineSeptember 18, 2017
Always efficient friendly staff.
I rent regularly from Budget, and have always found the cars spotless, this time the standard had dropped, crumbs on the casters where the seats can be adjusted, also dust and marks on the dashboard.

All good
September 11, 2017
good quality car for a good price.
I don't like not having a handover on collection and drop off. I would like to have had someone who shows you the marks etc and you agree them before driving off.
