Upgrade of car
Rental car park was the park furthest from the terminal building, however being a small airport, the distance was fine

Politeness of the staff. Proximity to arrivals. And low mileage vehicle.

Great experience will use again, very different experience when hireing cars in Spain.
paulMay 8, 2018
the car was spot on as was the approach of the young man behind the desk. he was neat in appearance and friendly and welcoming in his manner.
i had not realised i had booked to pick up the car from 12:00 midday my flight got in just after midnight and no one was there. this could be down to me but i had to go back the following day as the office was shut. there is another car hire company there that offers to be there at that time so this is a weakness in an otherwise excellent service.

it took quite some time to pick up the car but the gentleman was extremely friendly and helpful.

Easy of picking up and dropping off
MarkOctober 3, 2017
Service from the staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful.
I would have preferred a similar car to that booked, ie a small cross over not a standard 5 door hatchback.
RobertSeptember 20, 2017
Helpful & friendly staff
Car was grimy inside, particularly the windscreen
September 4, 2017
Problem finding a parking space when returning car on Sunday!!!
August 23, 2017
Upgraded to a Golf as we were travelling with a lot of stuff. Overall car was great, no problems and made very easy by having Rentalcars account.
The wait to pick it up was a little long, plenty of people using the same company and ended up hanging around for about 15 minutes!
August 15, 2017
being provided with ready printed damage condition report and then finding other slight damage not listed. Better to be able to check physical condition of vehicle with staff member on pick up.
August 11, 2017
I liked the man on the desk when i collected the car. He was very friendly but efficient. The car was great. Very cheap to run.

Friendly, helpful staff at Avis
Low power of vehicle...probably fault of our own choice

Very easy. And quick
Car vision was not good. Couldn't see clearly to reverse and couldn't see the bonnet end. Hence very difficult to park.
JoyceJuly 6, 2017
The staff were very helpful. The car was just what we needed.
I can't think of anything.
DuncanJune 27, 2017
Ease of hire
AdrianJune 11, 2017
Friendliness and courtesy of the desk staff. The vehicles always seem to be Renault Capture or Vauxhall Mokka X in that group which I like for the boot space.
Wish you could drop off the key in the departures building or in the car park. Having to take baggage to the depot on the way back is an unnecessary inconvenience, especially if running a bit late.
AloysiusJune 7, 2017
Good person on the counter
May 24, 2017
Good car with usual accoutrements
Queuing for 50 minutes behind customers who had not reserved a car
BarryMay 23, 2017
Standard of car was superb along with performance and economy.
Although the car was very new it had been extensively affected by a smoker. With the hot weather conditions it meant the car was intensely disaffected by the pungent effects of nicotine. This was very unpleasant for us as life long non-smokers.
May 15, 2017
The fact that I had not printed off my booking and had taken photo of computer screen. The fact that my phone decided to play dead did not phase Curtis in the Rental Office in Exeter. He had all my details to hand and brought me through the various additions and conditions very clearly. Overall experience very good
Only a small comment which is really not Budget's problem but finding a petrol Station easily before returning the vehicle to the Airport proved a little difficult. Found one in the end. I have this problem all the time wherever I go.
RichardMay 4, 2017
New car
Slight walk to the car
March 28, 2017
Helpful staff, clean car.
Bit of a walk from the car park in the rain but not a huge problem
MartinFebruary 19, 2017
Excellant sales assistant
Que to pick up car. Could have done with a second person on duty at this busy time
PhilFebruary 15, 2017
Prompt and friendly service. Car in very good condition. Particularly appreciated being able to use my debit card as we don't have a credit card.

No dislikes.
HuguesNovember 20, 2016
Very smooth Nice staff Good car
Not getting the exact model I booked
November 7, 2016
easy to find the car. Friendly helpful staff. I had to alter the hire period at the last minute and staff were great
Picking up the car in the dark and not being able to adjust the steering column - a torch would have made it possible. I could not see the speedo in the motorway. In daylight adjustment was easy!
CarolineOctober 28, 2016
Speed and efficiency of Kurtis on picking up the car
Poor signage in the car park which meant I drove around five times before locating the exit barrier. Lack of information regarding the petrol door release....I specifically asked where it was on this car as I have had problems before. I was told it was either under the dash or necessary to push the door. This was wrong and I nearly missed my fligh
AndrewSeptember 17, 2016
The duty manager was exceptionally helpful.
August 17, 2016
Quick efficient service, excellent clean car.
