The inside front window needed some cleaning. Otherwise, it was terrific. I loved the car (Toyota Camry), the people were nice, and the whole process was very quick and smooth. Thanks!Reviewed 2022 May 11

Pros:Pick up was easy, fast and staff was friendly.Cons:Drop off at the Asheville airport was confusing. The signs to lead you to the rental drop off are confusing. When I found the drop off there was no staff and no return box for the keys and paperwork. I had to walk to the terminal and find the Budget counter to drop off keys and paperwork.Reviewed 2019 Sep 24
