The car was great, customer service was terrible and web site was out of date. I called the local number to reserve a shuttle as per the web site, but was transferred to call center. Three calls and three hours later I had been given false info, transferred, and hung up on. There is no shuttle and no local number. P/U location was a mall, but there were no signs for Budget. Wandered for thirty minutes before discovering that the office was inside the Avis office.Reviewed 2022 Aug 02

This place sucks - waited over 3 hours, they didn't record the milage in and fuel out correctly (I have photos to prove it). The manager was dismissive and rude and the place is dirty (small pieces of trash littered in front of the counter area). This was the worst travel experience I've ever had and I will never book dollar again. Key take away: Take photos of everything (I mean everything) - milage, fuel, vehicle condition and the line that you have to wait in to get your rental cause otherwise dollar will question the validity of your claims.Reviewed 2022 Mar 15

Horrible, the vehicle that I reserved wasn't available therefore they gave a useless Mitsubishi/lower class that I paid for. I feel that they cheated on me. I deserved some type of compensation, definitely. Feel free to reach out for more information Thanks H Joseph (518)596-5293Reviewed 2022 Feb 11

At first everything was good. Interacted with a nice rep who ended up upgrading us because our minivan was not ready. When we left and went to pickup our passengers we realized they had only given us a 5 passenger vehicle even though they said it would fit 7. We had to drive 30min back to Albany Airport. This is where it went downhill. Next rep was exceptionally rude and said “I can’t do anything for you go to returns” I walked to returns and they were confused why I was their… Apparently First rep did in fact have to do something for us. Which was write up a new contract for a new vehicle. Ended up standing there in the outside parking lot in 25degree weather for 1 hour until they just decided to give us a Ford Expedition.Reviewed 2022 Jan 10
