pickup was understaffed. Desk people had to live to get cars. Was promised a Nissan - as reflected on rental agreement, but got an aged Toyota Corolla: cigarette burn, stained seats, passenger side damage(which I did not see until I got to LongBeach) Drop-off in Long Beach was very poorly marked. Had to circle terminal twice to find location. Had to search for staff t0 find a way to transport luggage. Then got charged an extra day for late drop0ff!! Fortunately that was removed when I complained. I know it's "budget" but please get you act together!Reviewed 2022 Jul 15

The staff at San Diego did what they could to help me after my original reservation was erroneously made at a rental office down on the border. Unfortunately, the cost was over twice as much as the original reservation. That made my car rental the most expensive part of my vacation - even more than my hotel. Then I didn’t want to spend much time in the car as it smelled of old smoke that had been attempted to clean unsuccessfully. Not my best experience with Budget!Reviewed 2022 Jun 14

Everything was organized perfectly. After some minutes of registration (it will take a bit longer for foreigners), the car was ready and prepared for departure. The car itself was clean and sufficiently filled with gas. Personnel was very friendly and supportive. Thanks a lot for the comfortable start of the journey. Cheers, du.Reviewed 2022 May 15

First time ever I received a vehicle that wasn’t cleaned very well and smelled like smoke. The sound on the radio only worked the first day and out the rest of the time. Read up on possible troubleshooting issues for Dodge Ram Rebel and appears that’s a common issue. Totally sucked not being able to listen to musicReviewed 2022 Apr 19
