    I haven’t received my holding deposit back yet and I’m waiting on that. I was told at the counter that it would have been better to book direct through budget yet when I initially tried to book direct, the price was massively higher than easyrentcars. So I suggest that you either lower your prices to help people come straight to you or advise your staff to not make customers feel guilty for not booking direct.

    Car exceeded expectations because as usual the requested car was not available - this seems to be a theme in the rental industry. Ferrari or similar = Toyota Aygo.

    Got given a Skoda Octavia which was OK. The counter staff however, were brusque to the point of being rude, we got told off like school children for a small amount of dirt on the floor carpets. Also, this branch of Budget charged us £100 for an additional driver when another Budget branch in Bristol did not charge my brother in law any extra fee for an additional driver for his rental for this same trip. Overall, I will not book with this branch of Budget again.
