Quick process on both ends. Got the car we wanted and it was lovely to drive. The last person had caused some damage to the car on the rear bumper which was a shame.

Extremely slow collection in Manchester, slow return car as your representative found that there was no spare tyre in the car and this concerned him. Obviously the car was not inspected properly prior to collection

Car was excellent. Above average rental.very high spec. Car hire staff have no degree of urgency. A big queue had formed but they seemed oblivious to it.very frustrating.
Toby Gatwick Airport 09 May 2017
The Budget employee who helped us was very friendly and on hearing we were travelling for my birthday gave me an upgrade to a sporty Astra instead of the standard Corsa we had booked. Great service regardless of the upgrade - and the car was virtually brand new and in great condition. Nothing really negative about Budget or

Everything was fine with car with the exceptions mentioned below. ●Particularly liked the comfort and driver space. ● fuel economy Not major ● took me a while to get use to gears ● radio was difficult to manage ● fuel gauge did not register completely full tank ● might not be practicable but would welcome user manual - example where is lever for opening bonnet. However, I had no need to open it. I have had problems previously with other models not necessarily with rental
Anonymous Bratislava Airport 06 January 2016
Initially the wrong car key was given to me. The car was not on the carpark and I had to return back to the counter for another key. No front screen ice remover availble in the car. The hot air was not flowing in sufficient quantity on the front screen. I have similar car at home and at teh highest output the air flows much faster preventing fogging. No wheel covers on the wheels. - did not look aesthetic.
John Malaga Airport 24 July 2015
Long queue, although there were at least 3 points of service/contact. May simply be a function of BUDGET's popularity.
