I was charged more than the amount quoted to me at the Budget counter when I picked up my car. I am not happy about that.

Picked up my rental at the downtown Seattle location @ 1011 Pike St. Was helped immediately, no overselling! You know, the routine, you need insurance, etc....... In and driving away in under 10 minutes. Car was immaculate. Dropped the car off @ Seatac. Routine there.

The Downtown Seattle Budget had NO car for our 12pm pick up time. We already checked out and had to wander for 3 hours before one was turned in. The reservation concept was lost in translation here!!

All paperwork was there and ready to go on time. Easy sign in. Vehicles are in a TIGHT parking deck but fine if you take it slow. Appreciated the ease of walking from our downtown hotel to pick up the SUV.

The pickup of the large 12 passenger van was easy. However, being all seniors riding in it, we had a hard time getting in and out of the van because we were never able to pull out the side step, and no one in the rental office offered information regarding the side step.

I needed a car to use on a road trip I was making from Oklahoma City to Minneapolis. I chose to not rent from the airport, as I work across the street from an Avis/Budget location, and I could park my car in my works parking lot. I first reserved my vehicle through Avis for a noon pick up. I called a few days before to see if I could pick it up about 3 hours earlier, as sometime had come up and I needed to leave earlier. When I spoke with someone there, they said to call the day before to see if a car would be available at that time. So I did. Not only was I told that they didn't know if a car would be available at 9am, they couldn't guarantee a car would be available at noon, or if at all that day, because the ONE economy car they had wasn't due to come in until about noon or so, and there was no guarantee when the previous renter would be returning it. However, they could upgrade me to a different vehicle at a discounted price, I would just have to pay the difference in the rental prices. This was totally unacceptable. Why should I have to pay additional monies because they can't have the vehicle that I rented there when it should be there? So I checked with Budget. I was able to get a rental for 7:30 in the morning for about $30 more. I wasn't too happy about paying the extra money for the same car (literally, the same car as they share the one car between Avis and Budget), but I thought if it could guarantee the car would be there at 7:30, it was worth it. So I canceled my Avis reservation and booked with Budget. I then called to verify my car would be available at 7:30am. This is when it hit me that there is only one car. The man who answered the phone said he couldn't guarantee it would be there at 7:30, that he couldn't even guarantee it would be there that day if the person didn't return it on time. I admit, I was quite rude to the guy, and I apologized the next day. I realize it's not his fault. I was extremely frustrated that I needed to get to my destination at a certain time, and when I was told basically it didn't matter when I made my reservation for, when they got a car in is when I would get it. Could be 6pm that night, could be at noon. Might be the next day. I didn't care what car I had, but again, why should I have to pay extra because they couldn't come through on their end of the agreement? When I called at 8am the next day, they did have a car ready for me. So in the end I got my car and was able to make it to my destination within the time I needed to. But for 2 days I was worrying I wouldn't be able to make it in time, and I was frustrated and angry with Budget, AND Avis, with their laxidasical attitude towards my needs after I had entered into an agreement. Seems to me they only have the one car, and their go to answer is they can upgrade the customer for an additional fee. It's a racket to make extra money. They very well could have the car I rented and just say they didn't and charge me more for an upgrade. Sounds like it has the potential to be shady. One would think they would be able to obtain a vehicle from another local Budget (or Avis) location if they didn't have one on the lot and a customer was coming in at a certain time to pick it up. Next time I will be better off paying the exhorbitant amount the airport charges and getting it there in exchange for the peace of mind knowing they are going to have my car that I rented available when I need it.

Standard car rental: All you need to know

How could I land a bargain rate for standard car rentals?

By using, you can get the latest, cheapest deals from rental companies for standard cars. Want to keep those costs low? Try to:

  • Browse and book as early as possible;
  • Make time to shop around online;
  • Avoid airport car rental branches;
  • Register only one driver per vehicle.

What are standard cars like?

Standard car rentals, which can include the likes of the Hyundai Elantra or Volkswagen Jetta, are great all-rounders. They offer good amounts of legroom and space for luggage, and also come with the benefit of fuel efficient engines.

Who would standard cars work well for?

Families embarking on road trips, groups of friends going around on urban jaunts, business travelers seeking comfort and cost-effective performance – all will be very happy with a standard rental car.

Do I have to be over a certain age to rent a standard car?

Age restrictions may vary from rental company to rental company. But, as a rule, drivers have to be at least 21 to get behind the wheel. You may also have to pay a surcharge if you happen to be under 25.

Will I require insurance for driving standard car rentals?

You’ll certainly need to have adequate car insurance for standard vehicles. You may already be protected by your credit card, or your current car insurance policy. But if rentals aren’t covered, you can purchase the right policy, either through or the rental company itself.

What documents will I need when arriving at the rental car company desk?

Your driver’s license is a must. You should also bring along the credit card you used to book the rental car online.

Can I book a standard car rental one-way?

If your travel schedule means it’ll suit you to drop your rental car off at a different branch, that shouldn’t be an issue. Major names like Alamo, Avis, and Dollar allow for one-way rentals, but it’s important to check about added costs attached to this sort of arrangement.

What kind of fuel policy would suit me best?

Fuel policies can come in different forms, but most drivers will find full-to-full policies most cost-effective. As long as you remember to take the time to fill the tank back up before dropping the car off, you won’t be hit with added costs.

Can I get unlimited mileage with my standard car rental?

Yes, unlimited mileage is widely available from the whole spectrum of car rental companies. But don’t get caught out – if you’re planning on going for longer drives, be sure to check if your deal does indeed come with unlimited mileage.

Can specialty cars be booked with a debit card?

It’s true to say credit cards will always be preferred by rental car companies. However, that doesn’t mean debit cards aren’t an option. Many car rental companies will let you book using your debit card, as long as they can run a credit check. They may also ask for extra ID and other documentation, so check before booking. > Standard
