    Budget Rent A CarRental Car Service

    I made a reservation for a Ford Focus rental car to be picked up at Budget on January 7, 2012 at the Orlando Airport. I received text messages stating the car was ready for me to pick up. Upon arrival to the airport I had to go to 2 different places. There was a long line & since I had a car ready I went into the fast lane. When I spoke to the man behind the counter he told me that the car had been recalled & he didn't have a car for me. I told him I had to get to a funeral & had to have a car to get there. I went back to the main lobby, on the other side of the airport, & I waited in long line of about 60 people & the agent gave me the keys to a Kia. When I got to the vehicle & opened the door I was shocked! The car was filthy & had not been cleaned, from nastiness all over steering wheel to filthy seats. I went back to Fast Track to get someone to look at the car & was told that was all they had & I could take it or leave it. Since I had to get to Vero Beach for a family funeral, I took the car. On the way there my brother & I kept hearing a noise & the tire light kept coming on. When we got to the motel we looked under the car& checked the tires. It appeared to have parts falling off of it & the tires were bald with wires showing through & chunks missing! We called Budget & they told us to go to Budget in Vero Beach & there would be a car for us. When we arrived no one knew about it & we had to leave without a car. The next morning we called Budget Road Side Assistance & they told us to go to the Melbourne Airport & they would have a car for us. Once again they did not know about it & did not have a car for us, after driving an hour & 15 minutes. A nice lady named Liz saw the car & did what she could to get us a car. She was the only good thing about our experience. It took 2 days to get a safe, clean vehicle to drive. Days that should have been spent with a grieving family. Upon returning this vehicle I was charged an additional 71.93 for fuel, after filling up the previous car before trading it in. The nice man did refund us the gas money.

      Budget Rent A Carcustomer service

      After many travel delays and cancellations I had to change my rental car and airport to travel to Chicago. I arrived at the Budget Midway counter around 11:30 (pm). The price of a Budget rental car was double what Enterprise cars are. They "convinced" me I needed an upgrade because of road conditions which turned out to be false so additional money paid for NO REASON. I asked for gas to be put in by them for convenience instead they did not put this in the contract and my oversight did not notice as I was exhausted so now they want to charge me $109 for a TANK OF GAS. This company oversells their product and takes advantage of the consumer. I am a military mother trying to get to her sons Naval Graduation and have had to pay exuberant fees to make this happen - can someone help to get some of my money recouped. CS with Budget has no compassion or care and I will NEVER rent a car from them again.

        Budget Rent A Carfraud, deceptive practices and unethical behaviour

        September 6, 2019
        Rental # [protected]

        after contacting Budget three (3) times prior to paying for the rental, we were told my son - who is Active Duty Military - would not have to pay the Under-Age Drive Fee. Once he turned in the car, he was charged the fee anyway. My son and I called, spoke to a manager, who told my son to take a picture of his Military ID, send it to the email address the manager provided and that it would be resolved.

        It never got credited and now they claim they aren't going to credit it and that we were never told it would be credited. Budget customer service agents are lying to customers which seems customary with Budget. Deceptive practices and unethical behavior are definitely part of their daily program. I just want my $174.00 back. I'm reporting them to the BBB, sending a copy to my Lawyer and reporting them to whatever government agency oversees rental car companies. They are deceitful liars and they seem to be pretty proud of it when you talk to them on the phone.

          Budget Rent A Carovercharging of budget rental

          Horrible experience with Budget Rent a car! We booked and prepaid the 7-day rental amounting to $253 after tax. Upon arrival at Budget's office at John Wayne airprort, they asked us to give two credit cards and my return ticket since i am a tourist just for identity validation. I clearly asked their staff if the cards will not be charged and he said YES. We declined all insurance or extras but 2 weeks after i saw my credit card statement and it reflected a $338.25 worth of insurance!!! We called customer service and even went back to the airport and they all said the same thing, that they can refund/cant do anything about it. I just find it unfair since the guy didnt even take the time to review or explain the whole agreement to us and just made us sign. We specifically asked them not to add any insurance and made sure they wont charge my credit card!!! Also, their customer service agent hung up on me while we were on the phone!!! How do we resolve this. I cant pay this $338.25 since i didnt even ask for it, wasnt even made aware of it. BUDGET RENT A CAR!!!
