When I reserved the car through this link, it was for $45 per day. And I also bought an insurance policy for the duration of the trip. When I went to collect the car from budget, I was informed the insurance policy I had bought would not work and was forced to pay $35 per day as insurance charges in Quito apart from the amount blocked on my card in case of any issues later on. I have rented cars in Ecuador multiple times and not once was I required to buy insurance. It was simply the hold on my card which was cancelled when the car was returned. This seemed like a gross misconduct on their part to be very honest. Additionally when I went to drop off the car at 7 PM on a Tuesday there was no one in the office and the security guard had me hand the keys back without any confirmation that the car was fine and the funds would be released as everything was in order. I definitely wouldn't use budget ever again.
