First Time Budget Rental and Kayak website userPick up location was great in Horseheads, NY, and drop off location was great at Boston's Logan Airport in MA. Website easy to use to explore options.I liked pretty much everything. No complaints!

FristratingCar was nice and clean.Major confusion and issues with price. I was quoted $107 then when I arrived and prepared to sign agreement the price said $180. I asked why and they said because I picked up 45 minutes early. I said I will drop it off within 24 hours. They said there is $65 fee for early pickup. I then suggested I wait 45 minutes to avoid fee. "You cannot" I was told. He said fee will be removed if you drop off at pickup time. A day later I dropped off at BWI within the 24 hour period. The price one receipt was $230!! I had to waste time going to the manager who then fixed it back to $107 with a confusing explanation. What a mess!?

Ok car, poor serviceThe car itself was clean and only had 10 miles on it when we received it!The representative at the airport was not at all friendly, he was chewing and spitting tobacco while helping us, and he insisted on charging us more money for an upgrade after our car was released to someone else (the last in its class) because we arrived late. Budget never asked for flight info or info as to our arrival time, and he couldn't care less that our flight arrived later than expected and that he had given away our car.

Very nice desk clerk. Car was clean.Couldn't find the rental agreement in the dark so I had to trust budget to check it in by finding the keys in the drop box.

Pickup and drop off was easy.The car I reserved wasn't available. I was "upgraded" to a larger vehicle, however, the larger vehicle almost had 50,000 miles and was showing some wear.

The lady at the Tompkins Airport was fantastic. Very helpful and courteous went out of her way to sanitize my credit card before returning it to me.The car was a bit dirty, Crumbs on the back seat and a hair clip in the handle. Makes me wonder how well they are being sanitized.

The price was affordable for a one-way rental. So much so, that I’ll still consider Hertz if/when I have a need for another one-way rental.The staff at my pickup location were a bit unfriendly and bad mouthed another customer who was on the phone. At one point, one of he staff members mentioned that the last time he was in NJ (where my bf is from), that a group of black guys tried to haggle him for money in Atlantic City - just unprofessional.

Helped me in a bindI was greatful to find a one way rental from upstate NY to NH. The Hertz team was courteous and I didn't have to wait long. I got a lovely Kia Optima for my rwntal. It was so comfortable for my 8 hour drive. Thanks Hertz!!

The people were friendly at the counter and took cars of my needs.When I arrived there was no one at the counter to get my paperwork for me. There was only a quarter tank of gas at pick up. Airport was under construction and there was no signage on what to do to get the car..

We got there to pick it up and they did not have the car we rented. We reserved a minivan for a family camping trip with 6 people. They had a Tahoe with no storage room for our stuff. The attendant did not offer solutions, or help us find another car. We had to scramble to find a mini van, driving to another town and spending $150 more. I had called dollar that morning to say we’d be late to pick up. They even confirmed my mini van. Worst experience, we ended up leaving hours later for our trip and having to set up camp in the dark with kids.They could have had the right car or at least called us to tell us they didn’t.

The on site staff was very helpful, pick was easy.The roadside assistance was horrendous, having to have multiple Lyft rides to end up not even being able to exchange the broken rental for a car in the same class let alone something that would fit our familt

Still have the carThere wasn’t a book in the glove compartment. ..so it was a pain to find what I needed. As simple as the clock. The lights etc. it was a lot of frustration. Toshiba should send another book so that someone could just look up what you were looking for.

it was finei had to get a car by 5 pm 12/24, because they were closed after that and the following day. Since i had to pick up earlier than i wanted to, my time was diminished with family for the holiday.
