Budget Rent-A-Car Complaint - Following the trend. Why are you checking my Credit?
Just a quick story, which I hope shows everyone just how jaded this company has become. When our personal vehicle broke down this year, and we needed a car for a week in order to get to college and work, Budget would not rent to us because we did not pass their "credit check". Never mind that we had rented from them just 9 months earlier when we went to San Diego. We also had rented from them twice in Maui. We really liked them, but now they have changed their policy. We may not have A1 credit, but we always take care of our rentals, and used them specifically because they didn't put you through all of the hoops. Well, no more. I guess they are just following everyone else.
Good luck getting a car if you don't have good credit. Really disturbing that they have to run your credit. We were in a bad place when we tried to rent from them. It is just sad that they feel that they can't trust you unless you have great credit. I just wanted to post this to let them know that they have lost the business of good customers. I hope others do not rent from them for the same reason.
