I received a call from the Romeoville Budget location an hour before I was to pick up the rental, telling me they had no cars and I would have to call Budget to find another location. It was a mess and not appreciated. When I was able to speak with someone, who didn't hang up on me, they sent me to another location. The second location didn't have the model I had reserved, so I had to pay $10/day extra. I'm not sure whose service I won't be using - Kayak for booking or Budget for poor customer service.
