The first Budget in downtown Charlotte canceled my vehicle reservation one hour before I was supposed to pick it up. I then had to spend an extra two hours in traffic, to go all the way to the airport for a more expensive vehicle reservation.Reviewed 2022 Aug 05

Only had one person at the counter. He did the best he could, but was visually overwhelmed by the 20 people in line. He wasn’t able to take a break, just went from person to person. Took approximately an hour to get thru the line and get our rental. Pickup time started at 6am and finished at 7am. Drop off was standard and easy as usual.Reviewed 2022 Aug 03

They were completely unprepared. They wouldn't tell us anything and locked us out of the building. They would come out and tell us one at a time what was happening. Which didn't make any sense. Lots of deflection going on as to what was the real issue. Another customer that rents from there often says it is always an issue at this site. No one was wearing a uniform or a name tag. Seemed the place was run by folks off the street. Absolutely the worst run rental car site I have ever been too. Budget/Avis, you have lost my business. Kayak, you're on the short list.Reviewed 2022 Aug 02

The associate at the Charolette airport who got everything squared away with my payment and rental was very friendly and helpful. This was my first time with rental car from the airport. It was unclear what I was supposed to do with the keys when I returned the car.Reviewed 2022 Jul 30

They said they ran out of cars. Why did it allow us to make a reservation if there are no cars? There was no customer service. There were about 20 other people who also had the same problem.Reviewed 2022 Jul 21

Waited over an hour in line just to pick up the car. About 6 reservations windows set up but only 2 were manned at a time. Then one agent would take a hour an hour break.Reviewed 2022 Jul 21

The car had some rattling noises and made some odd noises. It seemed like the car was cleaned, but not properly inspected.Reviewed 2022 Jun 30

Pickup was painful - had to wait about an hour to actually get a car - which was a painful delay before a drive of many hours. Seems we were waiting on a cleaning, which was rushed as a result.Reviewed 2022 Jun 27

There was an extremely long line of people waiting to rent/pick up their vehicles. It would have been helpful to have had a dedicated line for those who'd pre-booked and weren't there going through the process of finding out what was available to rent. Vehicle was comfortable to drive. There were quite a number of scratches on the bodywork as well as one place that had been 'marked' with a white paint 'x' for repair and the repair had not been done. It was a small loose section of the body at the front right hand side of the car. None of this was obvious when picking up the car as it was very dark in the garage. I guess you get what you pay for!Reviewed 2022 Jun 20
