Budget Car Rentalliars and thieves

Before renting the car I asked budget if my international license and debit card were acceptable to them. They said they were. When I asked if there were any additional requirements using this documentation, they said there were none. I prepaid for the car rental. When I arrived at their office, I was informed that there were numerous additional requirements and they refused to rent me the car. They said they would issue a refund to me. They have not issued a refund and now they refuse to issue a refund.

    This happened to me as well! I will never use budget again. I was charged over $17.00 in refueling because they said I was 3.4 gallons short! REALLY! You have no way to dispute this and they don't answer complaint letters. Back to Hertz for me.

    avoid budget @ all costs. counter people more interested in selling upgrades, insurance, add-ons than getting you into your car. bogus billing out of reno. screwed me out of $90 for a bogus refueling charge.

    We rented a premium car. Later learned the power source was disabled, preventing us from using our own GPS. Budget told me a location near me could trade me for another car not so disabled. This was not the case. I am stranded without my GPS working and am upset with Budget. Will NOT rent from them again. This is a scam to force you to buy their GPS systems. Budget is not honest about thus and dies not disclose this deceptive practice.

    Online reservation check. No mention of second card needed. When I cancelled took half of my payment as a cancellation fee. Disappointed.
