30 May 2016
Cons: When we went to pick up our rental that we had reserved from kayak, the girl behind the counter put all my info in and the system would not let it go through. She informed us that they just had an update the night before and that there was no one she could call to help (her manager left her phone at work). There was nothing wrong with my card, ssn, or license I gave her. This was at 6am at the Albany, NY airport. We had to get to the GSP airport in South Carolina within the 24hour rental period. Since I nor my husband use any major credit cards, there was no other option than using the bank card that would not go through for whatever reason (I contacted my bank when they opened at 7 and they said nothing was wrong with the account). We ended up having to contact my Grandmother to come all the way back to the airport (we were in NY for my Grandfather's funeral) so she could pay using her major credit card and then adding me as a driver. By this time it was 730am. By this time my Husband was pretty frustrated about the whole thing. And we were dealing with a different guy behind the counter that had just got to work at 7 (Phil). Phil was not very patient or professional behind the counter. When we finally paid with my grandmothers major credit card he didn't even give us till the next day at 730am for the rental. He left it at the original reserved time of 6am. Because of that we ended up taking the car back to SC at 2 in the morning rather than just taking it home and returning it in the morning because we weren't sure we could be up by 530am to take it back by 6.
Also the cars maintenance light and change oil light was on the whole time.

Great car, great service
Pros: New and good quality vehicle, good service from Budget at pick-up and return. We had the car for four weeks and it was fantastic. Great daily rate, too.

Phone customer service was terrible
Pros: I got different answers at different times I called. They would not call the location and would not let me call them and gave in correct info and were rude.
9 Aug 2016
Pros: Nice minivan but not an equivalent to a Chrysler T&C as advertised.
Budget did take money off the rental for our grief.
Cons: Immediately after leaving on the trip the tire light came on. The tire had a nail in it. We had to replace the tire after many calls to Budget.
This added hours to the trip and cost a hotel room and a tire.
When Budget was called they were of no help.
After taking things into our own hands with AAA and Walmart, we were on our way.
The van was filthy, with bloody tissues in the pockets, cupcake wrappers in the van. Where we picked it up in an airport parking garage it was dark and you could not see well enough to see these.

Pros: They were very helpful with changes due to airline cancelations very pleased with customer service
Pros: Pickup was free of hassles and relatively smooth. Pretty good value.
Cons: Rep at pickup in Latham didn't seem to know what he was doing and had to wait for help from another employee. Car had exterior marks and a cigarette burn on the front passenger seat.

Pros: Mo and the crew are great. Like really fantastic customer service. They were awesome.
Cons: The only thing, and it wasn't their fault, was that suddenly there were taxes that were not listed in the reservation. That's shitty. All of a sudden they announced higher airport taxes, even though the thrifty is off-airport. I know they are just going based on the computer, but thrifty needs to fix that. It's a super shitty feeling as a customer to budget a certain amount of money and find out you are paying more
Pros: staff at drop off called and let me know i had left my wallet in the car, sevral notifications went out in a very short time. It was vry helpful.

Saved me $125
Pros: I usually use Enterprise as my corporate car rental account and the price seemed high. I went onto Kayak and the process was quick, easy, and showed all the different rental companies. By using Kayak's simple process I saved over $125.

Pros: The return was quick and efficient except the Kayak connection confused them.
