The car had many scratches, scuffs, and dents. Fortunately, I knew enough to document them before leaving with the car. It took an extra 15 minutes but was worth it since I was questioned about one of the dents upon the return.

Very poor signage for return to Belfast made return stressful and took more time. Needed help from fellow passenger Additional cost for return to different rental location airport seems excessive

Speed of paperwork processing at pick up and drop off.
Wasted time queuing at desk in Dublin airport when I should have gone directly to bus to car compound. My fault but instruction on booking confirmation could have been made more explicit.
May 30, 2018
Staff were good.
Spec of car was poor. No CD player, language on dash was german, no steering wheel controls for radio etc. Inside was not particularly clean.
coletteMay 23, 2018
always use Budget where possible as I find the staff very helpful and efficient and I rent a car in Dublin airport at least once a month
May 21, 2018
pleased that the car was given a thorough check when we brought it back to make sure no damage.
could have done with more signage to show route to car rental return as we were not coming off the M50 but by a lesser road and didn't see any signs until we were very nearly at the airport entrance.

TimothyApril 20, 2018
Good value.
Wait time for pick-up. Shuttle bus wait.
RicardaApril 10, 2018
Friendly, efficient staff. Car ok.
As a general comment, no staff of any rental agency ever offers to go with you to the car and explain some basics (how to change the seat, open the trunk, open the fuel tank, operate the radio). The devil is often in these details.
April 8, 2018
Everything went according to plan.
KennethApril 7, 2018
The seats were dirty and had issue with smell from engine of diesel fumes, however the staff were very apologetic and nice.
