Picking up cars near LAX is always crazy but budget did a good job of getting everyone through in a timely manner. My main issue was dropping off my car, I dropped it off around four or five in the morning and as I pulled in the man who was collecting everyone’s information and rental cars back completely skipped over me and my son. It was to the point that I just filmed the mileage on the car and the cars condition while walking away and telling him the keys were in the car. I had just driven FIVE hours in thanksgiving night and my flight was leaving in less than an hour!! I still had to catch the shuttle back and get through security. Thankfully I made it to my gate with about three minutes to spare before they closed the doors. Maybe serve people in the order that they arrive?Reviewed 2023 Nov 25

There was NOTHING good about this experience. It deserves zero stars! Booked a pick up truck last night, drove an hour from the valley to pick it up, my wife and I walk in and there are no other customers; the representative, Ashan has my paperwork on his desk and then tells me he doesn’t have a pickup for me. I asked why no one contacted me and he said they don’t offer that service. When I told him I thought that the service left a lot to be desired and that I'd be writing a review he got agitated and said; "Go ahead, I don't care, write a review, call the main office". I’ll be sticking with SIXT or any other rental company other than budget or AvisReviewed 2023 Nov 13

It took over 2 hours to pick up the car. The line up was litterally about 150 people & the slow service was absolutely ridiculous. I had to stop & clen the interior of the windshield as it was so dirty you coulnd't see. The price was reasoanle & the drop off process was quite good.Reviewed 2023 Nov 12

They wouldn’t honor the price when I got there. Wouldn’t let me speak to someone with authority. Refused to speak to anyone on the phone who was going to let them know they had to honor the price I booked it for. Ended up not giving me a car. Sam was horrible. Do not ever even attempt a rental with this company location.Reviewed 2023 Oct 10
