My car was not the cleanest outside. Lots of bugs still on the front. Unusual but otherwise everyone was professional, courteous and approachable.Reviewed 2022 Aug 17

Waited two hours for our rental because they ran out of cars despite us booking three months in advance. Then the car we received wasn’t even the one we booked. When driving 115km/h on the highway the vehicle would warn that the car is reaching max. speed even though it was a Mustang. Also the radio volume maxed out at volume 14 which is barely audible when driving a highway with the windows down. Not renting with Budget ever again.Reviewed 2022 Aug 17

Pickup was easy, drop off was a bit confusing as there were no instructions or employees available. The car itself was not up to par - had really bad windshield wipers, plates that appeared to be expired, a mirror that was broken/didn’t adjust correctly, a bad smell, and was filthy inside.Reviewed 2022 Aug 17

The rental car company gave our car away and we ended up with a Camry that was so out of alignment that it should not have been in the parking lot and we had to return it the same day. The second car we we’re given was a smoker’s car and none of us smoke. The third car was nice, but not clean. The attendant feigned little interest in any this disruption to our trip. She knew the first car was not what we rented (a luxury car) and said we could come back to the airport and trade cars (out of our way) and provided two numbers for us to call about doing so. The first was disconnected and the second was never answered. She said she couldn’t smell smoke since she smoked. All you had to do was open a window and you could tell. It was that bad. Like a chimney. On the way back to the airport, someone backed into the car as we were gassing it up to drop off before our flight. It’s been the worst nightmare trying to straighten this out with Budget. There’s no way to contact a person on their menu and ask questions or exchange insurance data. The man who hit us said it was his fault and by the grace of God we made our flight. And a final present was when I looked at my bank statement and realized I was overcharged $150 for the car and don’t have a receipt since the office was closed. I will never rent like this again. It’s been a horrible experience.Reviewed 2022 Aug 16

The vehicle was great and I believe the lady helping me with pick up was Alma, she was awesome. The pick up process itself was ridiculous! Stood in line for at least an hour and 20 minutes even though I had a reservation. Drop off was quick and easy.Reviewed 2022 Aug 16

The van mildly dirty inside but nothing serious and the low tire light was on. Nothing I wasn’t able to remedy in a few minutes. Over all a great experience. Easy check in and check out. Would rent there again.Reviewed 2022 Aug 16

Upon renting my budget car rental a few changes were made through live chat, changes that did not show up at The budget Mississauga airport location, which doubled the cost of my rental and budget staff were not able to correct. After a long flight and delays in transportation to rental desk for my 80 year old mother I was fed up and angry to learn of the cost increase. This was not fair to me or mother . We just wanted to get home after a frustrating end to a wonderful trip. Someone needs to rectify the wrong.Reviewed 2022 Aug 16
