Budgeet rental cars Complaint - Very greedy even when you are turned down

Review by Walkonu on 2009-08-11
I was going to be traveling to Ca from Washington and needed a cheap rental car. Budget was the cheapest I could find. The ppl were friendly. But when thy denied me because of my moving violation they charged me $50. I didn't even remember about the violation or I would not have tried to go through them. I think that they are a greedy company. Don't go through them ever. If you want to go through a good company go through Alamo. Not even Avis. Avis owns budget so they have the same rules. I don't think they should offer prepaid vehicles online, they should only do it in person so they can explain themselves better. Alamo were very friendly and only 30 dollars more. They don't even care if your license is suspended.

You have a suspended license and wonder why Budget won't rent you a car? *banging head on desk*

I don't even believe that Alamo rented the OP a car. How can he/she be insured?

I don't see where the OP said their license is suspended, just that they have a moving violation. I think they are saying Alamo is very lenient and using a suspension as an example. Which, of course, is not legal so most likely is not occurring.

The op said "they don't even care if your license is suspended" so I guess I read that his was because of a moving violation he forgot to pay so his license was suspended.

Okay, it seems as the OP had an unpaid ticket for a moving violation that they convenietly forgot about. In some states like Colorado they will lock you until the fine is paid. Why put the rental car at risk before the ticket is cleared up?
