4.0 Mediocre
The rental vehicle was great, customer service was mediocre (examples of good and bad) and business practice is significantly less than desirable. Will not use Budget (Avis) again and would not recommend. When picking up the vehicle, I received a high pressure sales tactic to use Budget (Avis) insurance after having already purchased through third party (Allianz Global Assistance) when reserving the vehicle. Was told that the third party insurance (already paid for) doesn't mean anything and doesn't apply to the rental. If that is the case, then KAYAK should remove that as an option. Was also told that my personal insurance would not be sufficient either without asking what my insurance would cover (my policy includes car rental). The additional insurance added approximately 30% to my total rental cost that was not planned for. The last minute (the pressure sales happen when picking up the vehicle), full court press to add additional cost to the reservation puts you in a corner to make a decision when you're already in a hurry and the line behind you is long and impatient. Historically, I have had much better experience with other car rental companies that offer the same options, but don't imply that they are necessary or required. I am fault for not having done more research on Budget's (Avis') practices and policies. Because of that oversight, this effort to save a couple of hundred dollars (that ended up costing approximately $600 more than I planned for) was not worth it and an experience I don't plan to repeat. It is a testament to getting what you pay for. For the record, the staff members at the return were engaging and fun. Their actions are a reminder that good people should not bear the brunt of the bad policies/practices of the company they work for. However, as stated before, I will not rent from Budget (Avis) again and would highly recommend that others seek out other options that are more advantageous.

The car was horrible. Too old and the alignment was not correct. Not happy
8.0 Very Good
Overall, it was a really good experience. We were offerel an upsell on a larger car and decided to take it, knowing we'd be doing a lot of longer distance driving. The only thing I found really confusing/frustrating during pickup and the use of the car was the third-party toll service. It was explained to us very quickly, and it turns out it was explained inaccurately (luckily, in our favor). Still, it's a high cost (about 50% of our total cost between tolls and the use of the third-party toll service is the third-party's fees), so if you know you'll be traveling on toll roads I'd recommend planning ahead and having cash or using other options as available.
6.0 Okay
Negotiating a pick-up at DCA (Reagan National Airport) is not for the faint-hearted. Although I was prepared for unknowns, I was not prepared for being yelled at in the garage -- by someone who was probably not a Budget employee. When I reported this to the Budget desk, the employee was kind and sympathetic but the whole experience left me shaken. I was told that my car would have GPS but it didn't even have a map. All in all, go to DCA for pickups and drop-offs only as a last resort. Try suburban branches first!
2.0 Poor
I requested a compact car, but none were available. The minivani was assigned was so complicated and confusing that on several occasions I feared I would cause an accident. I am hoping to receive a refund for what turned out to be a very stressful experience.
