The worst experience
Cons: This is my worst experience with a rental agency. Her name was Karen and she was very rude. They just had one car and that too was getting cleaned and made me wait for 15 minutes. She was trying to find excuses not to give me the car. Their recommendations were to get a car in the airport, take a shuttle, take a taxi etc and not in a mood to get me a car. I would never go back to them again in my life.

Cost far exceeded the per day rate
Cons: We were quoted 29.99/day and the final bill was 49.99/day? I don't understand and they'll be getting a call. I won't be using Budget again!
5.2 Okay
2016 Oct 12
Pros: At least the car was there.
Cons: I had previously dropped off a car at the Melbourne airport a week prior without any issues. But when I picked up this car on the 10th, apparently it was at another location 3 miles down the road (Sears). What irritated me was when I picked up the car nothing was said and the agent charged me double the expected rate. Once I had walked out to the car and figured out the doubled rate, they informed me that rate was down the street at the Sears location. Why wasn't this brought up at the time of pickup. Guess I need to be more aware of the budget practices.

Schedule changes were easy online
Pros: I was able to easily adjust my schedule online via he Budget website. I had to ultimately cancel my reservation 24 hours from my pick-up time and was not charged any fee. My 5-star ratings are based on previous budget rentals.

Misleading
Pros: Inside a Sears Service Center. Opened at 8am sharp.

Easy inexpensive car rental
Pros: Renting a car outside of the airport was much less expensive. This rental car was at a car dealership toward the back garage area. Staff was really helpful and even recommended a few things to check out locally, which we appreciated. Car was clean, simple (Ford, Escort) good gas milage and got the job done. They even gave us a ride to the airport so we didn't have the hassle of a taxi. Great experience!

2017 May 26
Cons: The car was advertised to be located at the Hertz counter in the airport. It was not. It was 3 miles away. That was inconvenient and I had to arrange for my own transportation to and from the Hertz counter back to the airport. Hertz would not offer to take me to the other counter either. It was false advertising and I will not use Hertz or Kayak again. I was attending a funeral in Melbourne and did not welcome the hassle this caused.

Car and service was good BUT....
Pros: car was clean.
Cons: First the car was not the one I reserved. Second, The eToll was hidden and activated to trick you into not realizing that you are going to get charged 3.95 for toll and everyday that you have the car. WHY it was hidden behind the mirror and turned is beyond fair customer service. They put a note on the seat but in Florida we use Sunpass -not eToll, so it didn't dawn on me they were one and the same. By the time you got to the toll plaza to pay you were charged, I wanted to pay cash but it was too late "they said" So the right thing to do is call it what it is (Sunpass), tell us where it is (hidden behind the review mirror and have it off.

Cons: We set up a rental car before ever leaving on our trip. When we arrived there was 22 people in line and one person working. We got tired of waiting canceled car and walked right up to Hertz and rented a car no wait. They had three people working and no line. Avis was a BIG FAIL in my book.

Pros: The guy in Melbourne was not customer friendly. Couldn't give me an idea where the car was in the mall parking lot. The parking lot couldn't find the car and finally said he couldn't speak English. I wandered around a mall parking lot for 15 minutes pushing the lock door button to hear a chirp.
Cons: The car was dirty and dusty. Had paint left off the rear driver window. Was left off from an auction???

Pros: The people who work there are terrific. Pleasant and efficient. Although it's not on the airport grounds, it's so close that a phone call to them means you'll be in their van within 10 minutes.
Cons: There was a residual smell of cigarette smoke (though it's prohibited by their conditions statement). It was only apparent after the car had been shut for a number of hours, and dissipated easily by driving with the windows open for a short while.

Dollar rental is a scam and should not be allow on
Cons: Dollar rental is a scam and should not be allow on your site. The contract was for unlimited miles as it said on your site. When we got there to rent the truck they gave us a add on stating that we were limited to 125 miles per day.. They refused to honor the contract. I ended up having to go elsewhere to rent a vehicle and payed more.. Who is going to reimburse me for breech of contract??

No unlimited miles
Cons: Booked on kayak a mini van with unlimited miles. Arrived at counter and van not available but given a equivalent SUV. Then told that this location does not give unlimited mileage, apparently there is some fine print that says not all locations honor unlimited mileage, but you won't know until you get there to pick up. This is an important feature of any car rental deal and should be definitively disclosed not part of a bait and switch tactic.

2020 Jul 20
Pros: The staff was friendly and worked with what they had, as it was not their fault personally.
Cons: No one answers the phone - I tried calling multiple times for it to go to a voicemail. When I arrived initially to pick up my rental car I was informed there was only one vehicle available and it was a massive SUV (I called the day before the rental to confirm a smaller vehicle would be available and was told yes and I was all good to go). The woman then informed me there was multiple additional charges being added to the rental agreement. I also had an issue with the vehicle during my rental period and could not get a hold of anyone at the rental company, so I went to the location and saw the employees are just sitting there IGNORING the phone ringing on purpose.

Excellent customer service!!!!
Pros: The thrift ad is misleading: it said unlimited mileage but when I went to get the car I was told only 450 miles and had to stay within the state. I wasn't too happy at all. I had printed out everything and it definitely said unlimited miles; the employee immediately went on line, booked me with another company and actually took me to another location to pick up a car. I rented the other car but can't stop telling everyone about the super customer service from thrift!!
Cons: Misleading ad! It said unlimited miles....you lied:(

Pros: The price would have been better than the price I got for the national rental I had to get at the counter

Worst smelling rental ever
Pros: Not much to be honest it's was pretty much all bad!
Cons: The customer service , the smell of the car was horrible , the capped mileage that was different than what my wife reserved online, the inability to return the car to a different Thrifty location at the Orlando Airport 45 miles away. I will never rent from them again and as a retired USAF veteran and constant traveler thats saying a lot.
