Very much satisfied.exactly the same model which is there at the site. Will recommend to hire this one as it's special. The amount this budget charge for road side assistance even when I had taken a extra cover.

Dale San Francisco Airport 12 May 2018
The car The pick-up took way too long. The data entry seemed to use 1980s technology and the queue was immense and slow-moving.

James San Francisco Airport 31 March 2018
Friendly service during both pickup and drop off. No drama. Excellent gas mileage. NO attempts to sell me services or insurance I don’t need or want (HUGE plus and the reason I am likely to rent from Budget in the future). Car was a little beat up. Trunk wouldn’t close correctly. Car was a bit dirty. Papers from previous renters stuffed in the glove compartment and armrest. Poor USB connectivity with iPhone (Google Maps) although this is probably Ford’s fault.

Dirty car. Especialy from the inside
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 29 September 2017
In the car ( VW Tiguain ) there were new features ( starting and locking of the doors ), which in my opinion should have been told in advance to an european driver of my age! Now I had to learn them in practise, and bother other people.
Dafydd San Francisco Airport 27 September 2017
Nissan Rogue was a pleasure to drive. Would have preferred ford escape. Full to full policy. Stressfull finding decent gas station close to SFO.
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 22 September 2017
the car was great it was really dirty and had rubbish in it from previous renters
joseph San Francisco Airport 20 September 2017
Getting exactly what we ordered without issue and not being upsold to. No counter staff and having to later be told to go to a different floor to find counter and the very long queue for over an hour.
Francis San Francisco Airport 18 September 2017

Special mention to Larry 'the lengend' at Budget Rentals desk. You da man Larry!! That Larry didn't come on our trip

In the future I would recommend you to have an employee accompany the customer to the rental car to go over everything in case there are some issues with the car which need noting. It just gives for a better experience.
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 17 September 2017
I will recommend

Ease of renting from one airport and returning to another and free additional driver Inability to use preferred credit card
Anonymous San Francisco Airport 13 September 2017
The car was spacious and comfortable. I didn't wait for the car. It was ready waiting for me. GPS device had traffic information also. Internal cleaning can be done more detailed. But I think all rental cars are similar so. O complaints on this. GPS device was working slow. So I preferred to use google maps in my iPhone. I was expecting a Ford Expedition and ended up with Toyota Sequoia which was also a nice car.
