“Easyrentcars were good, but Budget's car substitution wasn't so great”
About Budget: 7.7 /10
We hired from Belfast airport. Check in was fine and they had our details to hand. We were a little surprised that there would be extra insurance if we travelled into Republic of Ireland (something that should be covered at booking). There was the option to take it then or call and arrange if needed. We declined. The car itself was a disappointment. We had booked a Ford Focus. We know they can substitute for an equivalent but the car we were given C3 Aircross was a poor substitute. At the check in desk we did not know what this was like. From the outside it looks ok but driving it wasn't great. It was underpowered (1.2 petrol), poor suspension (bottomed out on some N. Ireland roads), cheap plastic interior and uncomfortable rear seats. It may have been fine for 2 people but not for a family of 5. We had chosen a Focus as my family is 5 adults and as we have one in the family at home we knew it would be ok for the 6 days we would be there. Although on paper they may think C3 Aircross was an equivalent, it did not feel like it. Had I known more about the car at check in I would have declined. I know in future to check more details if offered an equivalent e.g. engine size, dimensions. At the check in desk they said the car had no marks on it and the yellow slip was clear. On arrival at the car park we found small scratches on the rear bumper (from bags) and on the rear door (see photos) and small marks on some of the alloy wheels. We found a Budget rep. and got this noted on the yellow slip so we were not billed for this at the end. The front tyres were legal but not far from the wear indicators. (Make sure you check the car & tyres on arrival at the carpark.) Handing back the car was easy. There was a representative there and it took just a few minutes for them to check the car over and hand the keys back. No need to return to the desk in the terminal.

Easyrentcars was easy to book through and offered a good deal on the gap insurance, far less than at the desk with budget. We had not benefit from the price drop as we paid the price first advertised. However, this may mean that the price was the best price at the beginning. The price was the best we could find on the internet and considerably less than booking direct with the large rental companies. Email contact from Easyrentcars was helpful and had all the details we needed for check in. Top tip for any hirers - remember to read the detail in the email about your DVLA license check code and take that with you. I would book through Easyrentcars again as their price and service was good. (I'll just make sure I check Budget's car substitution before taking the keys.)

“Never again.....”
About Budget: 4.3 /10
The car was not in the same class I had booked. It was dirty and had lots of scratches and a wheel trim missing and was nothing like the pictures on the website. when I complained they said it was all available and because I did'nt book direct with them I had no other choice but to upgrade and pay extra for a decent car. In My opionion this was disgusting and told them so.

“Excellent service, would highly recommend”
About Budget: 10.0 /10
Like: The service was brilliant, the staff were some helpful and friendly. I don't think I could say anything negative about the overall experience. Very happy customer.
Dislike: I'm not sure if it is a negative or not but the staff are so laid back that when I found a dent on the car at pick up they said it's something that happens and ticked it off my form and not theirs. I wasn't picked up on it at drop off though so I guess they are all fairly level headed with the process of it all. Very happy with everything!
