Car was excellent, as was the lady at the counter. Went to the car return area first, believing it was where cars are picked-up. Had to walk to a different terminal to get the keys and then walk back to get the car! Everything else was perfect :)

Took some use to getting the GPS up functioning the way we wanted it to go. Despite selecting the shortest route it took us on the most science route. We got this sorted when tolls was allowed to be selected. Overall a great car to drive and park and did all we needed it to do.

Ease of booking on the web and good prices Budget tried to sell me more insurance even though I had bought it from you!
Alessandro Cologne-Bonn Airport 17 October 2016
The kindness of the lady at the counter, she was very kind, friendly and helpful. She gave me a voucher for a free upgrade the car next time i book and the GPS for free, because i had to wait long time to pick up the car. Apparently the system did not work properly and i have to wait more than 30 min to pick up the car.
MIRIAM Cologne Train Station 04 June 2016
The quality of the car and the reception of the staff The drop off. It was may/29th, a sunday, 3:45 pm, and there was nobody to receive the car at the park station. I had to go to the office at main train station in Frankfurt with my luggage and there was nobody at the office, while the others players at the office were still there.
Sandra Cologne-Bonn Airport 08 May 2016
Liked the service from the office Picking the car up was a nightmare. I was told it would take 5 mins but the whole inspection and car park exit took an hour. I had to retutn to tge office to report a fault. All very time consuming

The bad damage on the front of the vehicle was not noted when we picked up the car. We had to go back to the budget kiosk in car park so that they could witness the damage and mark it in the paperwork.

Splitting hairs but would been nice for sat nav to of been in english as it took 20 minutes to change language.
Patrick Cologne-Bonn Airport 15 September 2014
Administration was very good. We had difficulty finding a petrol station and a helpful member of staff drove us to it. Unfortunately the navigation system did not work. It kept saying it was trying to find a signal but never did. We had to buy a map and got lost several times. The radio did not appear to work - maybe we could not find the right button?
Michael Cologne Train Station 08 September 2014
Drop off in Munich was hard to find. First had to find office in train station. Who directed us to dtop off point. In all took 35 mins to find office then drive to drop off point Hard to find office
Peter Cologne-Bonn Airport 20 July 2014
Efficient staff, great car, good location. Avis/Budget desk on arrival is in terminal1. The signage is very poor. Ended in up in the Avis/Budget car parking area and had to walk back to terminal one to rental desk. added 30 minutes to our journey.
Heike Cologne-Bonn Airport 14 July 2014
Friendly staff. Efficient in replacing the car. Replacement car was great. On returning the car I saw how some people return theirs - I was thus very impressed with the cleanliness of mine. I was first given a car with a Belgian number plate. Not only the number plate was Dutch, the car manual as well! Looking up how the automatic transmission worked was thus impossible.
