    We booked a Ford focus or similar to fit two suitcase in. Budget tried to give us a Ford fiesta claiming it was the same thing and sell us an upgrade. They ended up giving us a Kia sol. When the bags didn't fit the persons handing over the car was very unhelpful and walked off after putting the seats down and throwing the bags in saying it was fine as there were only two of us. We went back into the office and and spoke to a different person who sorted us a car with a big enough boot to fit 2 bags in out of sight.

    Their prices are the cheapest available and that comes with other prices. 30 min long line of people and no cars of the type you book are part of it. Other rentals will offer you free upgrade, budget will charge you for this and give you car you dont want - in my case it was truck. Lady at the counter told me that its not too big and she is driving it her self and it got back camera for parking which is necessity in LA and that mid size SUV is too small for 3 people. When I wanted different, smaller car they offered me mustang (literally the opposite of big car). Apparently I can wait until someone return car I booked and then I can take it. I canceled my booking and went to Dollar which is very well organized. Until today Im waiting for refund from budget.

    I went to budget before renting a car , I assumed that budget will give me a price less than EasyRentCars. Unfortunate they gave me the car for 2800$ I was shocked! I told the lady on the counter that I found it cheaper, so I will book it online, she replied that would take an hour to appear on the system. I opened on EasyRentCars I found the car I want for 860$ I booked it. I went to the lady after 10 minutes she found my rental. I took the car for 1077$ with all total cost.

    In the beginning, the customer service staff kept saying that there was no available booked car and tried to ask me to upgrade. After negotiations for a while, I finally got another car in the same class as what I booked. When I picked up the car, the tire pressures were something wrong. But luckily, the on-site staff helped me to fix it.

    When we picked up the car on the 14th of August from Los Angeles Airport, the counter staff member called Bruce was absolutely terrible. It was probably one of the poorest customer services I have experienced in my life. He was rude, bullying and even tried to sell us extra insurance even though we had bought the full insurance package covering everything there is. He was mocking us and had an attitude as if he was supreme. I don't understand how can you have a person like that on the job. Never using Budget again for renting a car, if that is what the company wants to represent. I would appreciate if you would forward this feedback to his manager.

The woman at the counter was very rude and almost did not accept my reservation because I purchased it in NZD. She gave me a "free" upgrade after I refused the offer to pay for one, and the vehicle I received repeatedly gave me a "low oil" warning - scary to drive!
