Easy pick-up, even though their computers went down & some things had to be done by hand, & drop-off was equally easy. Car was good. Just waiting for final receipt.Reviewed 2024 Apr 01

From the grumpy woman at the counter to a vehicle that apparently wasn’t serviced and less than a full tank with no one outside where the cars were located to address the issues, what can I say? Oh, the car didn’t breakdown so for that I am thankful! Other than that it was by far the worst car rental experience in my personal or professional life!Reviewed 2022 Sep 27

Pros:Staff at PIT and BWI were very helpful.Cons:There was no antennae on the car. I picked it up at PIT that way. Did not realize it was missing until I reached my destination. Also, the passenger window did not work. Lastly, the Budget office was not open when I returned the car. I drove around BWI for 30 minutes trying to figure where and how to return the car. Turns out I was to return it at the AVIS drop-off. No instructions advised of that change. Very disappointing.Reviewed 2021 May 10
