There was 1 to 1.5 hours long waiting line just to get to the counter at Budget in the Phoenix Airport. I canceled my reservation after waiting 20 minutes and booked with Hertz, which took me 10 minutes to pay for and drive away. Unlikely that I’ll book with Budget ever again.Reviewed 2024 Feb 12

We were given a small upgrade at no extra charge (nice!). Then, we were rear-ended (other guys fault totally) within ten minutes of leaving the rental car facility. The budget people were extremely helpful in directing us through the process of getting a police report, returning the vehicle to the rental facility and picking up a new car (even nicer, another upgrade at no additional cost through Avis). It was nice to know it was all taken care of for us.Reviewed 2024 Jan 22

Phx airport: A little confusing at pickup. There was a line in the garage, (not at the fast break desk) at the bottom of the elevator. I stood in it for a few minutes as the people in front of me snapped when I tried to walk around to fast break desk. The budget rep. was not there when I joined the line (or attempted to walk over to fast break). When he did return I asked him about my reservation. He sent me to fast break desk. Ie. Budget could add a sign so the people waiting in line for cars are aware, fast break people are not “cutting the line”… I imagine these people had waited upstairs in a line and were just anxious to get their cars. I don’t need a fight for something like this. It definitely felt hostile when I initially attempted to walk to fast break desk.Reviewed 2023 Nov 20

I appreciated Budget allowing a one-way rental. It really helped me out. When I dropped the car off in Bakersfield, there were no Budget signs (only Avis). It might be helpful if you had Budget signs in the Bakersfield airport rental car parking lot to help your customers...Reviewed 2023 Nov 15

At PHX their computer system was down for two hours. Forty people were waiting at midnight and they couldn’t rent any cars. No backup plan. No services. No communication.Reviewed 2023 Nov 10

Where to start? One hour wait in line to pickup car after a long day of travel was 100% unacceptable. Car was stinky with high mileage for a rental. Front wheel made noise. Glad the car didn't break down. Will never rent from Budget again! I want a refund!Reviewed 2023 Oct 28
