Pros: Yes/ people were good.
Cons: Hard to find Budget & Avis stations in JFK & NWK!
Pros: Car was clean and ready to go
Cons: Better rate
Cons: I ordered a compact car and was given an SUV. Budget likely regards this as an upgrade. I do not. I was over charged for refueling.
Cons: They didn’t have any economy cars available, so they required us to pay for the next class up. We were then given a car with only 12 miles in the tank, which made it pretty tense for getting out of Manhattan to a gas station in NJ
Pros: Drop off was super easy
Cons: Car needed to be cleaned. Workers needed to wear masks at all times.
Pros: Friendly staff, but that’s it.
Cons: Car died in the middle of the street in Midtown. Had to wait three hours for a tow truck that was promised in 90 minutes, in the freezing rain.
Pros: Pickup process took forever. Car didn’t have wiper fluid and there was salt on the streets so i couldnt see well. I had to stop at a rest stop to get water for the windshield. Quite dangerous.
Cons: Better organized pickup. It’s just such an ordeal every time.
Cons: Budget offices were closed at JFK New York and Providence Rhode Island, but these were not indicated in the booking confirmations. As a result, much time was wasted during the pickup at both of these locations (it turned out that we had to pick up at an Avis location instead). Unprofessional!
Cons: Only one person was working with the customers, I wait like one hour and a half for my car.
Pros: Locating the car was easy
Cons: I had to wait 45 minutes even though there were only 2 people in front of me. Car smelled like an ashtray covered up by artificial air freshener. It was nauseating during my 4 hour drive. The inside of the window was very dirty and dangerous once it got dark and oncoming lights made it more difficult to see. When i stopped at a rest stop the key battery to lock the car didn`t work and I had to leave my luggage unsafely in the car. When I dropped the car off no one was around, I had to walk around to find someone and the whole process was confusing and unclear. Terrible experience and not at all worth the expense. I should have been paid to drive that car!
Pros: car was great, clean and new
Cons: Pick up and drop off staff didn't seem to care about customer service at all. Waited while staff chatted when I was already waiting for 30 minutes.
Pros: Friendly staff, easy and efficient picking up and dropping off, great car
Cons: Car was dirty on the inside, gunk on the back seat, some trash was left (plastic fork, piece of paper, etc)
