Budget in Houston went above and beyond during our rental experience to make sure we still made our international flight at IAHReviewed 15 Apr 2024

Experience with the San Antonio Budget airport staff was phenomenal. They were very accommodating and helpful. It was quite inconvenient that they did not have the car I reserved available because of a conference. I'm not quite sure what the point of booking a vehicle is if it's not held for you. I had to go back 2 days in a row after pick up to check if the car I booked was available. I eventually received it, but it was a hassle and interrupted my days.Reviewed 30 Jan 2024

My price was double the price quoted when I got to the rental counter. After standing in line for two hours. I decided to take a Lyft to see my mother at the hospital. I didn’t have time for last minute hustle and haggling. I would have spoken to a manager, but I was too frustrated and I needed to make good use of my time. As a professional, you should honor the price that you quoted your customer. It was a disappointment.Reviewed 12 Dec 2023

I booked through kayak, which come to find out did not book my reservation at the airport location but instead all the way across town. The Airport location would not honor the price I had on kayak and wanted to charge me 3X the amount for my rental. So I had to pay $30 for a cab across town to the location kayak had booked. When I get there, they didn’t even have the convertible that I had booked and instead stuck me in a horrible 3 yr old sedan that still had trash in it from the last renter. When you put in the airport code as the location, you expect to be renting from the airport location not some random shack all the way across town.Reviewed 24 Sep 2022

Love that there where plenty to choose from. I did not like that the vehicles did not look as though they have been cared for. I had to put air in my vehicles tires and run it thru a car wash because all the windows had a white film on them.Reviewed 8 May 2022
