Picking up the car took under 10 minutes. Dropping off took about 5 minutes. So easy! I really appreciated that. I thought it was a bit expensive though.Reviewed 24 Aug 2022

We had made our car reservation months prior but on the morning we were due to pick it up, they did not have our car available. We then had to drive to a different location but it required a great deal of time and money we weren’t planning on spending. Once we acquired the car, it was filthy, like so dirty it stained the back side of our clothes. Overall just a stressful and unpleasant experience.Reviewed 19 Aug 2022

It was never mentioned that this pick up site was off airport and would be closed when we arrived to pick up our vehicle. When we called the number provided there was no way to talk with a person. The “computer” did verify that they had my reservation and confirmed that I would be there, but there was no way to contact anyone or to pick up the vehicle. So we never actually were able to get the vehicle that had reserved. We were fortunate that we had family in town that was able to help us with our situation, but this needs to be made clear so other people don’t have this problem- if you are at an off airport site there are limited hours and you will not be able to get (or return) your vehicle!Reviewed 26 Jul 2022

The car had an animal type odor, and the wiper blades were worn out. I had to replace the wiper blades because we were in a location that rain a lot.Reviewed 6 Jul 2022

When you reserve a rental you expect one to be ready for you when you go to pick it up. Nope…we don’t have anything here for you. We were overbooked is what we were told. Oh, but I guess we have 1 car but you will still be charged for the SUV price. No choice but to do it. Then when we are getting in our car she magically decided there was 1 SUV available for us. What a joke!!Reviewed 27 Jun 2022

We got a call the morning we were to pick up a car that they didn't have a car for us to rent at the Charleston location. We would have to change the pickup location to the airport which would have resulted in an increase of $30 as they refused to honor the previous rate. We will never rent from Budget or Avis in the future.Reviewed 6 Jun 2022

Pick-up was horrible! The line to get my car took almost 2 hours and then I waited another 2 hours for my car in the parking garage.Reviewed 18 May 2022

Did not honor confirmation. Said they were overbooked and did not have a car for me. No apology. No attempt to find a car at another location.Reviewed 15 May 2022
