Misleading advertisement missing information about additional expencesNothing , complete lie from both kayak and thrifty car rentalThe car that was booked for us turned out a two door suv with no trunk and barely 4 seats ( the last two foldable) we were five and the booking was for SUV 5 people 5 pieces of luggage . Not sure who is lying kayak or thrifty !! There were also a mandatory license plate fee , temporary drivers license fee , and mandatory insurance 4$/day that we’re not noted in the booking arrangement . The “upgraded” car for higher rate of course was ridiculously small and in a rough shape . They tried to make me pay for stains that was like that when we got the car. That is my second horrible experience with thrifty car rental and definitely the very last one. However I believe kayak has some fault here too for miscommunication and false advertisement so I will refrain using this site for future as well.

Car rented was not same category as car bookedI booked through your platform a SUV 4 door, 5 pax, 4 bags. I got the smallest existing 4WD (Suzuki Jimny) 3 pax , 2 bags. I had booked this one a bit more expensive than others offering for the size . very dissapointing . It does not seem to be Thrifty's fault, but Kayak's.

small, warn and prefect3dr Rav4,Car was rugged and prefect for the narrow, pot hole filled roads of the island. The rental office is in a small building just south of the terminal, don't expect much. Except expect nice people that will get you going and loaded up for your island adventure.

The staff was awesome!!! Very friendly.Maybe a map around Antigua and better tires on the car we rented. For the type of terrain we were driving in the tires were weak. It was scary to think we could have gotten a flat at any moment not really knowing where things were located. But overall adventurous and great little car for our trip!

First car offered had over 150,000 Km and was filthy inside. Both the AC and the power windows didn’t work. They agreed to give us another car which we accepted, but that one too had a broken passengers side power mirror whose motor was constantly running.

This place is a small parking lot owned by local mechanic. All cars are old and in terrible condition. I’ve had to return two cars as both had mechanical issues. Second car tire got flat over night after one day use. Don’t expect to see any real Budget quality I went to other rental Thrifty and got a perfect car for the rest of my trip. STAY AWAY from Budget on Antigua island!!!

We booked a rental car with Budget, when going to pick up the car they told us they didnt have any car for us. they had our reservation, but no car! We were told that this do happen and that they in those cases handed us over to Hertz instead. At Hertz we had to argue that we would have the same deal, as their cheapest car was gonna be $10 more expensive than the deal we had confirmed with Budget. This is absolutely ridiculous. We book a car, had a confirmation, then they dont actually have the car, ship us over to someone else and we have to pay a much more expensive price! At Hertz we told them that the confirmation we had stated $25 per day, so the lady was going to clear it with the manager as this was lower than what their standard prices. The representative came back after a few minutes and told us that they could do the $25 for us, as she had cleared it with her manager. Foolishly of us, we did not double check this! They had a holding of $500 on our card, and when we asked what the total was we were told that it would be deducted from the $500 and the rest was going to be released again. We asked twice about the total and she did not tell us. We later realised that she had put $35 per day, instead of the $25 as verbally agreed, so obviously this was the reason why she didnt tell us the total! We feel very cheated by the behavior of both Budget who didn't uphold the confirmation that they had a car for us and by the representative at Hertz who fully knew what she was doing!!

Brought the car to the hotel, is about all the positive I could write about.Just about everything else, currently in communication with budget, regarding how dangerous, dirty and scary to drive the vehicle provided was.

Staff was friendly.The car was dented all over, bumper coming off, rubber seal on the passenger side rear door falling off made door almost impossible to latch, water came through floorboard when it rains, and trunk could not be closed by my wife because she lacked the slamming force to make it latch. And more.....

Pick up and drop off.Staff could be honest! There were two instances where individuals were very dishonest. It is the reason that I gave them the rating and will never again rent Budget.

Didn't get the car I bookedThe convenience of picking up the car at the airport was great.Booked a premium 7 seater SUV and received a regular 5 seater. I was told that they don't offer any premium SUVs and was asked to pay more for a 7 seat minivan.

The vehicle was outdated and not cleaned. There was no windshield washer fluid to even clean the windshield. I was not impressed with the standard of the vehicle and I washed it prior to using. Whilst driving I also realized the vehicle is in need of shocks and a general service.

There was no car when I got there. I was forced to get another company and pay more. This seem to be because of the festivities in the island. They knew they could get more then the price I reserved for the car.

Have a new management service on entire revamping of the entire staff unit. They were rude all of them you observe how they speak to other customers. They were no help at all whatever is the issue they do not try to help resolve it at all.Have a new management service on entire revamping of the entire staff unit.

The service was stellar! They upgraded us to an SUV due to the car we were meant to be picking up not having been properly cleaned prior to our arrival.The car was very old and appeared to need some engine maintenance.

Piece of JunkCar was filthy, bad breaks ans suspension. Our hotel concierge had them bring us a new car which was better but that says very little. I would recommned having your resort book a car for you- they seem to get better cars.
