    The person handling our check in was fairly slow and made an inappropriate comment. However, the vehicle we received was a Kia Soul, a nice upgrade from what we booked and a fantastic driving experience.

    Drop of was a nightmare. I was not able to find the point. Therefore I missed the evening. However the agent said that she were there in the office. We confused about where to part, an we not even checked the office as we though it is close. It was not, but we did not reach the office because we did not find the drop off parking lot.

    The wait for pick-up was far too long, especially after a long flight. At first there was only one person at the desk for a long line of people. The key to the car was manual (i.e., without a clicker to lock it), which was somewhat inconvenient. At the drop-off at SFO, my wife fell, and the Budget attendants where extremely caring and helpful, and insisted that they drive us to the terminal.

    Long wait during pickup, in spite of the fact that I was covered by recommended full insurance including road side assistance during online reservation, I was insisted to take additional road side assistance during the pick up causing an additional expense of US$44 per week.

    The good: vehicle provided exactly as rented at the web site. Could even choose colour. The bad: almost 2-hour wait line at the counter for pick-up. The worse: an invoice with unexpected and incomprehensible extra charges after drop-off.

    Upgraded from Jetta VW to Chrysler 300, with additional USD15 per day. Like the service provided by Carlo upon check in and he recommended an upgrade which I agreed. The car was an pleasure to drive. Unfortunately, left my sunglasses and phone holder when returning the car at SFO rental car park.

    i had problems with my reservation with budget. at the counter they wanted to see my israeli passport and drivers license. i had the passport but no knowing i might need my foreign license i did not bring it. they at first refused to honor my reservation as is including all insurances and told me to try somewhere else. finally the manager said if i could show a boarding pass or something showing i was outside the usa when i booked the car they would honor it. i did not have my boarding pass but fortunately i found something issued by israel as i passed through passport control that showed i left israel on dec 19. it was stressful and i had no idea i would need documentation as i booked the reservation in dollars in english and i also have a new york drivers license.
