We had to wait half an hour after our pick up time because our car wasn’t ready but other than that it was easy. Drop off was quick and easy.

Ad showing rental car at the YYZ airport in Toronto, CA, where actually it was a 15 driving from the airport. Email received instruction to call a number for a shutter pick up at the airport to take to the rental car agency. Called the number upon arrival for the so call pick-up, had to make several calls, it kept going to voice mail, several messages left, finally call and got someone on the phone, whom instructed us to take the train to a station where they would do the pick up. Arriving at the station could not find the phone described to us to call from, it was difficult, confusing and no support on their part. Waited outside for 24 min for their van to pick us up. Upon arrival at the rental car agency, they didn’t have the car reserved, Full size Impala, they pushed a mid size charged at the same price of the full size, press for time we didn’t have time to argue. Once everything was loaded on the car, I noticed a flat tire when stating driving off the parking lot, went back inside and insisted to provide another car, then they provided a full size car. They don’t have a lot of cars, but they will take your reservation even if they don’t have the car you request.

Have been renting in Costa Rica for five years. First, and last time that i will rent a car with Budget. I understand all about the mandatory Third Party Insurance. I rent small cars and the price is between $12 and $13 per day, on top of the daily car rental. This is a government mandated tax. I have no problem with this... my issue was that the government has a range of prices for this insurance from $13 to $19 per day, depending on the size of vehicle that you rent. As i mentioned, we rent small cars, the price should have been $13 per day. Budget charged me $19. Saying this fee is what is charged for all cars, regardless of size. This is not accurate. Makes me wonder if this Budget location gives its staff commission on their sales? I did send two emails to this location before leaving on our trip. No one returned my email. It felt like extortion, what is a person to do in such a situation? Any other car rental agency’s daily rate on the day of needing a car would have been considerably higher than Budget’s.

I am not happy with how this whole experince went. Upon arriving the manager told me I was required to pay for the insurance for the car while I declined on the website since my credit card covers the insurance but the manager said he can't give me the car without it which was an additional $250 - 3 x times more than the rental cost I payed to and then I was also forced to use my credit card for a $2500 credit hold on my credit card as a protection which was really absurd. I made a couple of calls to see if I could rent any other car but they all were booked and I had bookings in the cities I was headed which means I was forced to pay an additional of $300 with taxes and was totally blindsided with this experience. Not happy at all.
