  • Convenient bus to Budget site at Heathrow, friendly helpful driver who helped load up our bags on the bus.
    Quick and efficient service when picking up. Only negative was that no map of how to get onto the M25 or how to return to the car rental site provided which meant we got quite lost on the way back! Very easy helpful drop off and staff once again helped us with bags, car seat, buggy etc which was much appreciated.

  • I had to wait 45 minutes for the vehicle from Budget/Avis at Milan Linate. I find this is not acceptable, and is the second time this year I have had such a long wait from this supplier, in this airport. #

  • The Hire Staff were very friendly and very efficient, the car was parked very near to the Hire Office, it was a nearly new vehicle in excellent condition. The return car park was an easy walk away from the Hire Office and the Staff on my return were also very friendly. I would not hesitate to use the same combination of Companies for my next trip to Denmark. #

  • The dar was fine - our problem was that the £9.99 insurance I paid for at the point of booking online was not on Budget/Autoeurope's records, so I was obliged to pay £31.99 at point of collection to replace it. I misguidedly took the word of the person at the desk that it must not have been processed, however, when I got back home I saw that both amounts had been taken off my card. Very disappointed in this unprofessional approach. #

  • A couple of things. First it took a fairly long time to do the paperwork partly my fault as I did not have the paper copy of the driving license. Second when we were sent outside there seemed to be no system we were sent out and told to just press the unlock button in the dark amongst about 3 other people which was not ideal as we went to the same vehicle a few times. Then when I drove off, the next day the car would not start eventually after 3 hours the RAC came out and eventually told me it was because the car had to be immobilised by putting my foot on the clutch. I would have appreciated been told this when I took the car. I told the branch and they rightly said "How did you drive it away from the branch?" I said it was by pure chance as when I get in to any unfamiliar car I always have my foot on the clutch in case it is in gear. Therefore I do to deem it necessary to do it again as I always leave it in neutral thereafter. On a positive note they were very helpful when I asked to swap the place of return from heathrow to stansted. Vehicle was fine by the way. #

  • We had some problems with the credit/address check which was very frustrating since I have hired a car in the past, and there wasn't much room for discussion around the subject- in the end it worked out but got away with the car an hour after we had expected to. The vehicle was in good condition and the company we collected from did their best for us, but it was a stressful experience. #

  • The absence of a proper cold air-conditioning system in the small car we hired was very problematic - especially as there was a rare heat wave during our visit. We have learned from this and will ensure we check this out before making any new car hire arrangements.
    The service was fine, the car was OK, and we didn't have to wait long to get the car.

    Efficient and friendly service desk.
    Car was clean and no problems. Minor damage on car was clearly marked on documentation.
    Return of car was fast and efficient.

  • There was a bit of white dust on the back end, otherwise fine.

    I managed to knock off the nearside wing mirror. For this, I was charged â?¬496.85, which seems a bit steep for an Alfa Guiletta.

    We hope to be able to use your services again in the future.

  • I was hosptalised in Bangkok and because I did not turn up on time my car hire was cancelled. The staff were very unhelpful, advised my car hire was cancelled and to rebook it was three times more. So I complained. I am currently claiming back my car hire. #

  • On-line price £88. Seemed very reasonable.
    When arrived at the car rental location (Budget Rentals, Stansted Airport), was advised that either pay £1,000 Excess on my credit card - which would be reimbursed 10days after safe return of vehicle with no damage, including stone chips etc), or MUST buy comprehensive insurance at a cost of £200.

    Advised (discretely) by sales agent at Budget, that it is standard practice to low ball the price on internet to get the customer in the shop where (having already paid £88), one is somewhat cornered.

    So, you could say, I am not best happy.
