They had no car for us, nor would they make calls to find us a rental with another company. We had to drag our suitcases around until we found availability with Europcar.

Did not have the car I asked for and canceled on me one hour before pickup
1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 20
I did my reservation online through Kayak and received a confirmation. I checked in online and then arrived at the location, to find out they did not have the vehicle I requested or any vehicles period. I had to request a ride back to where I was staying, and hesitantly they agreed to drop me off. They did not attempt to find a solution to the problem at all. They simply (politely, but directly) stated they had no vehicles and could do nothing about it.

The car was ok. tires a little run down. the staff checked in ok.We purchased full collision damage waiver. When actual damage occurred on the car, we drove to avis the same day. told them about the issue and returned the car actually a day early. We were told that the insurance was not going to cover the damage with some week excuse (in fact that we had to immediately inform avis of the accident). There is no good cellular in Guatemala, so we could not call and instead drove to avis immediately. The accident did not involve any other car. ( in fact the roads are narrow and there was no possibility to hang out where we damaged the car (rocks at the side of the road). The car's functionality was not impaired at all. We were told to come back the next day (where we actually took off to return to the US), after the local manager had spoken to his supervisor. We returned the next morning, ready to take the flight. At that point the manager called his supervisor and customer service representative and then told us that the CDW would not cover because we had not immediately called (which was impossible). Needless to say, we will fight line of argumentation. It is just very frustrating to have purchased this kind of "peace of mind" insurance only to find out that the contract seems to be illusory. Will definitely not rent from avis again and very upset about their gamble.

Invented random feesEnded up walking away from my reservation. When I pointed out that the fees were already included in the total I was quoted, the employees became shifty and came up with a random airport tax/fee that doesn't exist. They quoted me one amount for a deposit, then they changed their minds because the rental is an SUV. I had no confidence left, so I walked away and rented from another rental company.

They ignored my reservationI reserved early because of the season. When we arrived they acknowledged our reservation but simply said they didnt have any cars. I thought the point of a reservation was precisely so there would be a car.

Car was cleanIt wasn't the car I ordered. Despite several days in advance with confirmation car wasn't waiting for me and I needed to go for 2WD instead of 4x4 which prevented me from entering certain areas and made my journey in Guatemala risky and stressful.

Absolutely orribleSome jung employers, but they can’t decide anything!They want encrease the total amount in every mode There’s no one can decide! There’s no one responsible! There’s no one who give you the total amount!

driving in GuatemalaThe car was cleanThe price quoted to me on the phone and sent by email did not match at all what we had to pay when we got there, we had to pay at least $100 more. And we had to take insurance - which is fine if it's required but that wasn't stated up front as a requirement. The language barrier didn't help either as we don't speak Spanish.

Bait and switchSaid the insurance I bought wasn’t valid. Then the price of the car rental itself has gone up. So I walked away from the reservation and dealt with cab rides through out my vacation. Not the end of the world but certainly not a positive on the car rental.

Left stranded.NothingThey did not have the car I reserved, nor any car at all. We were left stranded in a country we had never visited with no car. The budget agent at the airport said that even though we had a reservation, he did not have a car for us. He suggested other questionable car rental places at a much higher price. We ended having to find our own car at other place. This was the worst car rental experience of my life, will never use budget in my life again.

Car rental in GuatemalaCar was fine.I hate to have to pay the mandatory insurance in Guatemala when my credit card covers everything in the US. The insurance nearly doubles the price of the rental.

I have reserved a sedan and they only had a pickup. we were 4 persons and could not leave the baggae on the bed with no security. We end up going with another rental company and had to pay almost as twice as much that what we have booked with Budget.

Ok but.......unit not so good.Attention when arrived1. Time too long when picking up the car. 2. Vehicle was not in the best conditions. Seems it has been damaged a lot, didn't drive well, transmition seems to have problems. 3. Cleanliness needs to improve.

The was no sign were to drop off the car so we drove into a parking lot having to pay 2,5 dollar to exit it again. The clerk told us that there usually is a sign but it was taken away that morning for some reason.

Budget Agent DishonestNothingWe had made reservations for two compact cars. The rental agent told us that they did not have the vehicles that we had reserved, and that they did not have any vehicles. I believe that they did in fact have vehicles for rent, but did not want to rent to us at the discounted price we got through Kayak. We witnessed the agent signing agreements with other customers that had arrived after us. I will not be renting from Budget in Guatemala or anywhere else again.

Didn't fulfill my reservationAbosutelly nothing.I made a reservation a week in advance for an economy car to pick it up at La Aurora Airport in Guatemala. I called them as my making my way there to pick up the car, they pulled up my reservation and they said "Sorry, we don't have cars." I told the person on the phone that I had made a reservation a week in advance and that I needed the car, she replied "sorry, we don't have cars". I asked her if they had cars in another of their locations in the city, again "sorry, we don't have cars". I asked if they had another type of car, I got the same "sorry, we don't have cars". I was never notified of this. I called two hours in advance before pick up the car so it wasn't like I showed up late to pick it up. I was never offered a way to solve this problem, something like giving me another type of car at the price of my reservation or even getting me a car from another company. I was left out to figure it out on my own in a third world country, I had a tight travel schedule so I needed a car at that moment. After two hours of searching around I had to bite the bullet and rent a car for THREE times more money that what I made my reservation for. I even went on Budget's website and it said they DID have cars! I am never renting with them again and if you don't want to be left out in the wind in a third world country shouldn't do you.

Extra Insurance and Hidden Deposit FeeWhen we got to the offsite counter, they told us we needed to buy extra $200 insurance even though we had already bought insurance online as well as leave a $2000 deposit that wasn't mentioned anywhere before. Wound up getting a car elsewhere. Very poor. Also car they wanted us to talke was really banged up and missing nobs on the center console.

Take picturesThere was a person at the airport who was very helpful in arranging a ride to the off-airport location.Pick up took a long time. At drop off they charged us for a scratch that was on the car before we left. Take pictures of every little ding and scratch if you don't want to be changed extra

3.2 Mediocre2017 Jan 22
Terrible PAYLESS experience in Guatemala CityExtorted money for "mandatory" insurance, despite having paid for full insurance through Payless/Kayak. Car was worse then the car I learned to drive on(1971 VW bus), the brake light was taped on, headlights were positioned incorrectly, you could only see in the dark while going up a hill, even with high beams. When idling the whole car shook like we were having a huge earthquake. And the car felt like it only had 2 cylinders. Very bad experience.

It's okWell they did not have the vehicle I had reserved. They did upgrade me to a van type vehicle but was stick shift. No real issues just not my first choice from an SUV. The staff friendly and helpful no complaints on them.Well I purchased insurance through Kayak. When arrived I got hit with an additional $200 and some dollars in insurance that was mandatory. I showed them insurance purchased and they said yes but does not cover all so I ended up paying over $350 in insurance. Just wish they were upfront before reserving car.

Vehicle had damage that affected functionality. We had to wait about 2 hours to get the vehicle. Undisclosed insurance requirement was added at check in. Overall poor experience.Be timely. Provide a good product. Be upfront about pricing.
3.6 Mediocre2019 Jan 01
The Thrifty agent was not at the pick-up location at the scheduled time. The vehicle (a Mitsubishi sedan) itself performed slowly, and was very sluggish on roads with hills. The vehicle had over 141,000 miles on it, which is probably why it performed poorly. The tires were almost bald. The plastic chip cover on the key ring broke apart and some electronic chips fell out, making it impossible to start the car. This happened the day we had to be at the airport for an outbound flight. We had rented from Thrifty on another occasion, and that vehicle broke down and had to be replaced. It also had one broken headlight bulb that had to be replaced. Adios Thrifty.

First of all Europcar don't have a desk at the airport and by asking people in other desks eventually they found the guy in charge. Than after shuttling to the Europcar office we found out that the car we reserved is not reserved for us, we were offered a pickup truck that was more than double the price. We declined.

They did not have the vehicle and refused to honor the reservation saying I should have prepaid if I wanted the car reserved. We had to run for half a day looking for an alternate vehicle and ended up paying much more for a last minute rental.

Hola, mi amiga y yo estuvimos en Guatemala y rentamos el auto por 3 días, el Kia Forte que recibimos estaba en muy muy malas (golpes y rayones) condiciones pero nos aseguramos de revisar muy bien cada detalle y que ellos lo anotaran en su hoja de control, al final verificaron pero todo estaba en nota. Y me devolvieron el dinero, estaba muy asustada por los comentarios de otros clientes. Pero la clave está en revisar, hacer videos y detallar todo! En mi caso me fue bien.
