Pros: Staff was great, but totally unprepared for our arrival. We purchased extra insurance at their urging, even though we really didn't want to. They gave a slight discount but for all the inconveniences and inconsistencies it should have been more. The car was great and overall service was good
Cons: Car was not ready upon arrival. They had to give us a ride to our hotel then deliver it later on. The car was 3 1/2 -4 hours late to be given to us. No offer was made to compensate us. If we would have brought it back 3 1/2 hours late would they have expected us NOT to compensate them?

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE SERVICE OUTSIDE THE US
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Pick up took almost 2 hours. They forced me to get coverage that I didn't need seeing as though I purchased additional coverage that covered me in Dominican Republic AND my credit card covered me too. They said they didn't have my reservation, then said they don't have my car, then mysteriously the car I reserved and needed showed up. When it did she told me I HAD to take all coverage from them to get into the vehicle and that my card doesn't cover it and neither does the additional insurance I purchased. No I did not rent an exotic car, it was just a Tahoe. This was the WORST rental experience I've ever had and was definitely taken advantage of.

Excelente car at an awesome rate
Pros: The fact that the final bill was not extremely higher than the original quote, even after I accepted the upgrade for an extra 3 dollars per day !
Cons: Everything was as I expected in a typical car rental and internationally.

Cons: Everything went wrong. The vehicle that I reserved wasn’t the one they wanted to give me. When I showed them a picture of vehicle or similar they blamed kayak for error. They wanted to give me a smaller vehicle for same price. I ended up using another rental company.

Cons: We reserved a vehicle from this company when we were at home, but when we arrived at the airport we were told the car we had reserved was already rented out to somebody, and instead were offered a more expensive alternative option that we had to turn down.
5.6 Okay

Bad Experience
Pros: Not much
Cons: No reservations could be located upon check in. Took about a half hour back and forth to get car and I'm still not sure what I paid but it was a lot more than my original reservation was for

Smaller than expected
Cons: This is the second time we have reserved a car online with Budget and had to upgrade once we arrived. We went from $135 to $500. The SUV we reserved was comparable to a Nissan Rogue. My mother in law owns a Rogue, and the rental waiting for us was not a similar size. We upgraded to a third seat, and paid more for 'comfort'. The third seat didn't have any leg room. I had to literally sit sideways. I doubt a car seat would've fit. It was Nissan SUV that we have never heard of. Then we found out that our insurance purchased online wouldn't help us if something happened right away. We would have to pay Budget upfront, and get reimbursed from the insurance company on our own. They allowed us to cancel our policy 1 hr before picking up the car. We didn't realize this policy wouldn't cover us immediately until we picked up the car. We paid $11 per day online. We ended up having to pay Budget $13 per day, and $4 for tire/glass per day. This has been super frustrating both trips in a foreign country!
4.4 Okay
5 Mar 2019
Pros: Either Allianz lied when I rented car on internet about insurance ... or the Budget Employee lied when I picked the car up. Allianz said I was covered in full for $100 for the period, but employee forced me to cancel Allianz policy buy his insurance that was 400% higher.
Cons: Please figure out how to make things consistent and honest for your clients. I feel used and I no longer Trust Budget. False advertising is what brought me to this rental from Budget. I doubt that I will ever rent from Budget again in my life.

Old cars
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The first explorer broke down that suv was 8 years and 80,000 miles noise and banging around on the road. They then gave me a midsize suv I was stuck with until I returned to the airport to swap that out for a full size suv. This was again an 10 year old vehicle witch stunk and the seats were locked in position .I was then forced to upgrade to a 12 passenger van. again another old vehicle with 80,000 miles and all cars were extremely banged up. If you want a worthy vehicle go elsewhere because Europe car is the worst. No customers service no assistance and no support.
5.2 Okay
25 Jan 2019
Pros: Nothing. I was ripped off and lied to.
Cons: They would not rent me the car for the price I agreed to online. They were forcing me to use their insurance even though i had my own insurance, which doubled the price. When I returned it they said I “crashed” the car and made me pay $100 to fix a tiny scratch which i definitely did NOT do!

2 Feb 2019
Pros: At the counter I was surprised to learn that I must purchase VERY expensive insurance option to rent the vehicle. This was previously undisclosed. The cost of the insurance was higher than the cost of the vehicle.
Cons: The disclosure of the rule must happen at the time of booking with an option to select the insurer online. Making your customers captive leaves very bad taste.

Cons: they gave us a car that had a flat spare tire. When confronted with that fact they just said to call the office if we had any problems. Also we were forced to buy liability insurance. you must return the car with the same amount of gas in the tank or they will charge you twice of gas on the market or make you go fill the tank the way it was when you picked it up.

Worse rental company ever rip off
Pros: There was nothing to like about this rental company I did my reservation on the Internet before I left for my vacation to Porta Plata DR as I arrive to pick up my rental they tell me the insurance for the rental i purchase on the Internet was not valid in there country and the price I was expected to pay with my reservation was not honored which was $74 and was forced to pay $280 so my vacation was not ruin and from what I was told by the manager they are aware of the situation that is happening on the Internet but that's how they get people to rent cars and then change the price as once you arrive knowing that you'll be Force to rent a car without a reservation at full maximum price I recommend no one to use this rental company for them having the knowledge of what's going on the Internet I was not the only one at the rental company with the same issue we all end up paying more than what we expected to from our reservation
Cons: To be in a different country with a car That had brake light on no washer fluid no gas in the car I damage vehicle in front back left and right as soon I got the car I had to go put gas and air in the tire I was in a country I don't speak the language and I'm forced to pull over on the side of the road to find a gas station and a tire store worst car rental company ever ECONOMY is not for the people is just a scam to make money to be aware of a problem and you're just trying to benefit from the worst experience I have a head with a rental company in a different country tried to not use them at all if possible the would just take your money

Pros: Upon Arrival @ pick up location I was informed the car would be triple the original quoted and paid for price, I am unsure if its corporate policy, bait and switch or staffing issue, however, completely unacceptable; I did not get rental and presently fighting at present. I would stay far away!
Cons: The could not have tried to fleece me for triple the price!
4.8 Okay
19 Jun 2019
Pros: The car fit our belongings.
Cons: The liability insurance we bought was invalid in the DR. We had to purchase one at the counter that was 4 times the price. It took a while to get ahold of the company that we bought from and ask for a refund. The car also smelled of smoke which caused allergies.

Cons: The estimated price for two weeks rental was $280, but when we came to pick up the car from the airport total price was estimated close to $800. If we knew this before, we would search for better deal. We ended up taking taxi and finding different company to rent from.

Cons: The fact that upon arrival my reservation was not the same and was asked to leave a $ 1,000 hold on my account I thought was outrageous especially after asking if I could see it in writing which the sales rep denied and continued to ask for large amount to hold. Insurance rate was also way too high.. which made me feel like if I didn't include they would've sent someone around to cause damage and I'd be force to pay.. Definitely had qualities of a scam... All in all, I did not go further with transaction and had to use a completely different rental company on the spot in order to rent a vehicle. Two thumbs down!!
