Good economical car. Did not like the passenger seat. The seat was way too low. I am not tall (5'3") but I am not a midget and I could barely see over the dash.Reviewed 2024 May 11

My experience with budget was excellent as always. However, I was disappointed when I realize that I had booked with kayak, and it was in US dollars. I will not be booking through kayak in the future.Reviewed 2023 Sep 25

Happy to take our money up front but when collecting the car we were told they need a credit card for us to have the car. We told them we had paid for the car already. We ended up with no car for our trip.Reviewed 2023 Jul 19

review fromkayak
Pros:Clean car and smooth pick-up process.Cons:Following drop off, someone from Budget called to say they had found a nik in the window and tried to hold me responsible. At no point did I hear anything while driving. Moreover, they should have checked the car upon return and brought it to my attention then.Reviewed 2020 Oct 30
