Initially the clerk quoted a rate that was more than twice the amount. Apparently, he was confused due to the exchange rate but his supervisor indicated that the rate on my paperwork was correct. After driving away from the shop, within two minutes I noticed that the gas gauge was one bar below full. Obviously, they had not topped up the gas tank. I turned around and went back to the shop but the clerk had gone home for the day and the department was closed. I spoke with another employee who worked in the parts department and she took a picture of the gas gauge. She said that she would pass the info on to the rental desk. At the end of my rental, when I returned the car, I made sure that the gas was fully topped up and I mentioned the gas issue to the clerk. Unfortunately, it appeared that no info was left for him and nothing was done to rectify it. (I had also taken a picture on my phone when the parts person took her picture, but the clerk did not seem interested in seeing it.) Since the gas had not been checked, I wonder if the rest of the pre-rental inspection was conducted on the car.

Rental agent was amazing. Same agent was there when I returned the car. I mentioned that the car was dirty and they happily reduced my rate and gave me an upgrade for the next time.

I booked a small car, but there was a snowstorm when I landed at the Thunder Bay airport, so I paid an extra $15 a day for the upgrade to an SUV.....I just wanted my money back for the upgrade because the headlight was burnt out and I was driving home 4 hours away. It was dangerous and scary. I've been trying to call Budget in Thunder Bay for over a week, at the office and the airport desk, and I think they are screening my calls or something. When I do get through to the airport desk they tell me that the manager will be in tomorrow and will call me back. This happened a bunch of times over the phone and at the desk when I returned the vehicle to the airport. Now I have been charged the full amount on my credit card. Do not rent from Budget in Thunder Bay! Terrible customer service and terrible vehicles!
