Budget Rent a Car


… that is unless you know their stupid rules! Let me ask you a question. First I am under the assumption you have at some point in your lifetime rented a car after getting off of an airplane. Next, let’s say your flight is scheduled to land at 5PM. You made the car reservation at 6PM for a one day rental. Now, your flight lands early, you get to the car rental counter at 4:30PM. What happens to your reservation? Naturally you get the car and must have it back 4:30PM the next day since you picked it up early – right? Even though you had it reserved for 6PM, since you picked it up early, your 24 hr “day clock” starts when you rent the car. There is often a small “grace period” for drop off but if you exceed that you pay extra. Are we all in agreement…
