Easy to pick up and drop off In our opinion, the car (Nissan Micra) was a downgrade from what we ordered (Citroen C3 or similar)
Anonymous Nantes Airport 18 August 2018
Good helpful staff when picking up and dropping off.

The young lady who assisted with the paper work was excellent and very helpful. A little difficult to find the budget desk as no signage.
Anonymous Geneva Airport 15 August 2018
The Budget staff were excellent. They spoke English,which made it easier, explained everything fully and even gave advice on which route to take through Geneva. We had booked a Fiat Tipo but were given a Peugeot 2008 which was nearly new. We drive Peugeot in the UK and so really enjoyed driving it throughout the holiday.
Anonymous Nice Airport 14 August 2018
Friendliness of counter staff and the vehicle itself. Not being able to collect car at our landing terminal, and the length of time it took to collect car.
Anonymous Paris - Gare du Nord 14 August 2018
Receptive staff. Easy of Hiring. Long time to process the contract. Not so clear car.

The desk was in the airport terminal less than 5 minutes after collecting luggage. Nothing

Very friendly staff, convenient pick-up, great car for my purposes. Not enough staff, especially at pick-up - just a single guy on his own. He was great, but there should have been at least a second person on the desks.
Anonymous Beauvais Airport 13 August 2018
Another rent with Budget and another pleasant coop. There is no bag trolleys in the airport which we didn't know! It would be extremely helpful to know that before dropping the car off(We came back with more bags that we traveled with).

Clean car Queue for collection of car
Anonymous Toulouse Airport 12 August 2018
Nice car good condition 45 minute wait before even got to the counter to start the paper work - although they did give me a free additional driver as compensation. We had a red light on the dashboard the entire two weeks saying a tyre needed inflating - that should have been checked before hiring the car out

Most things Price for extra driver
Anonymous Paris - Gare Saint Lazare 12 August 2018
I liked that it was a car in great condition with unlimited mileage. Drop off was super quick as they were cleaning other cars and I just drove into the space. One person checked the car, checked the fuel , did his paperwork and directed me the way out. Probably took 3 mins in total. The car was not on the number when I went to pick the car up across the road alone with no one accompanying me. I did find the car. Then I was trying to get the booster seat. Eventually it was the same desk staff who came and gave me the booster seat. I also tried to contact the desk to extend the booking but no single number worked or answered.
Anonymous Avignon TGV Station 12 August 2018
Good car, ease of drop off The “Budget” desk is inside the well signposted “Avis” Office & is NOT signposted so difficult to find. We also queued for over 2 hours to pick up our car.
Anonymous Montpellier Airport 12 August 2018
Customer service The time at the counter shortage of staff
Anonymous Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport 11 August 2018
Great car and flexible staff upon actually getting the car I ordered a Jeep due to the size and got a smaller alternative. For the larger model I had to pay extra
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 10 August 2018
Efficiency of the staff t the rental desk and no forceful tactics used to make extra non essential purchases The car was different to what I requested at the time of booking

Everything ok! The car was new! A bit crowded to pick up the car at nice. Long queue.

Desk and car pickup now in terminal 1 so much easier than on previous visits Drop off still in terminal 2 so need more time and energy when leaving car

Anonymous Nantes Airport 06 August 2018
Brand new vehicle. We had a flat tyre about 20 minutes into our journey and the breakdown assistance was superb (I'd dare say better than in England) We travelled with a 3 year old and a 5 month old and had to try a few different car seat options before we were satisfied that they offered some level of safety. It's a shame to pay so much to hire the actual car and then the actual items that'll keep your family safe are little more than an afterthought.

Good car. Great value. Very slow queue and process for collection. Though it was a busy Saturday morning. And cups of water provided. Small but nice touch.

Ease of pick up and drop off. Cleanliness of car. Nothing
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 05 August 2018
The car and the drop off quick and simple procedure. Waiting time and time consuming procedure to pick up the car. For example: giving out the personal data on a piece of paper again in spite of entering a lot of this information already online when booking.
Anonymous Paris - Gare du Nord 05 August 2018
The staff at the check in point in Gare du Nord were excellent even offering some fresh sparkling water while signing the paperwork.( first time it happen to us ! thank you) We paid a very reasonable price for a car update as the C3 may not be in the same category as the citroen C3 Over all excellent customer service at both check in/check out pts Maybe the micra car is not in the same league as the Citroen C3

Car was well maintained and new. At Nice we had to take a bus to change terminal, then a long walk, then a wait of over 45 minutes.

Loved the car, great for multiple passengers connect well to cell phone and easy to use navigation.
Anonymous Bordeaux Airport 30 July 2018
I had to contact Manchester the day before I picked up to make a last minute change. This was handled very efficiently in a friendly and professional manner. 1. The representative in France was mostly disinterested and not very helpful. 2. The vehicle was mechanically sound, but rather shabby.
Anonymous Nice Airport 30 July 2018
Once we were attended to everything went like clockwork. Great service. I like that we could book total insurance covering ALL and any claims through the app but be careful not to then pay extra for it at the desk as the car hire company try to sell you the same thing through them. At Nice Airport all the signs suggest Budget and Avis are interchangeable. The only difference is a thin, almost imperceptible red or blue line round each company’s desks. Lots of people queuing in the incorrect line. Lots of people queuing in the desk exit routes thereby jumping the line and creating chaos. MUCH clearer signage needed!
Anonymous Nice Airport 30 July 2018
the car drove economical. the luggageroom in the back was not really clean
Anonymous Lyon Airport 29 July 2018
Very clean and new car They should explain the costumers there is a fuel station in the airport to refill the tank.

The upgrade was a dream and the team was very helpful!
Anonymous CDG Airport Terminal 2 28 July 2018
The car was roomy and drove well. Good gas mileage. The navigation system stopped working on the 2nd day. It would change into a different language, and then would not speak at all, only the radio would play. We tried very hard to figure out what was wrong with it. That was very stressful trying to get around an unfamiliar country.
Anonymous Lyon Airport 28 July 2018
Process was quite quick - return was very good They didn't have the car I had booked and the car I was given was too small
