Pros:Drop off was very efficient.Cons:There was a 2 fold difference between the amount on the final receipt and the initial estimate. As there are no petrol stations near Edinburgh airport, I had to hand in the car without filling the tank myself and was charged £100 for the fuel ! Give information about nearest petrol station.Reviewed Aug 20 2019

Pros:The attendants at the rental desk were helpful and friendly.Cons:The car I thought I had reserved was not available, and the only car available that would fit our luggage was in another category at more than twice the price.Reviewed May 14 2019

Pay attention to your charges and Insurance detailsPros:NoneCons:Service was poor and filled with sneaky additional charges with little explanation. After paying for full insurance and having a defective front tire to start, they refused to reemburse for the replacement we had to fix during our trip out of pocket. Completely Irrational explanations as to why, $390.00 USD for a 4 day rental is an absurd scam. From the original quoted price of $89 +$150 for full insurance total. Upgrades were given and put on bill and told at desk no additional cost (nav, car upgrade) based on inventory availability after booking in advance, then charged to the final bill. Steer clear of Avis/Budget.Reviewed Nov 23 2018

Misrepresentation of CostsCons:Cost you quoted me was no where what i was charged in Inverness at pickup, plus outrageous costs for additional drivers AND big difference n what you quoted me for insurance and what they charged me.Reviewed Mar 25 2018

Good value and friendlyPros:The car was clean and the staff were friendly for the most part.Reviewed Jul 28 2017

Unhelpful in a pinchPros:The car was clean and functionalCons:The pick up process was slow and confusing. We got a flat tire and there was no spare, no patch kit, and Budget was extremely unhelpful throughout the entire process. Ended up having to pay for a tow truck, and a new tire out of my pocket and then upon returning the vehicle, there was no one that was willing to talk to me about the whole experience and just told me to call the customer service line, which is even worse to deal with, and it was just a terrible rental experience all around. The issue with the tire is still unresolved, and I am spending hours trying to get reimbursed, but to no avail. Worst rental experience I have ever had.Reviewed Oct 25 2016

Wrong information providedPros:Everything from booking to return was super goodCons:The amount mentioned in Kayak was in USD but Budget charged in GBP. The website and the email that I received clearly mentioned that I will be charged in USD . Now after return I paid in GBP which costed me more than the initial amount plus the foreign transaction fee for my credit card.Reviewed Sep 8 2016

Cons:I am unimpressed with Car Trawler as a third party provider. Very inflexible and very hard to deal with.Reviewed Dec 17 2015

Top tips for renting a car from Budget in Inverness

  • Book Budget car hires in Inverness and enjoy the Scottish Highlands in all their spectacular wonder. With many natural wonders off the beaten track, public transportation in Inverness keeps you locked in, while car hire lets you break free to see the Loch Ness, the Speyside Whiskey region and much more. If you are remaining local, you will find the coastal region of Inverness to be a charm, with an authentic Old Town, Inverness Cathedral, Old High Church and many other interesting sites to visit. History buffs will enjoy seeing the old Culloden Battlefield and Clava Cairns. If you enjoy a drive, take your Budget car hire on the North Coast 500 road trip, a legendary journey for sightseeing.
  • When you book Budget car hire in Inverness you will find one primary branch servicing the area based at Inverness Airport. The trading hours are from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm during the weeks and Saturday from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. They do not offer out-of-hours pick-up, but you are welcome to return the vehicle 24 hours a day. If the branch is closed when it’s time to leave Inverness, simply park the car in the Budget garage and drop the keys in the after-hours drop box outside the branch.
  • Take advantage of the additional driver allowance when you book Budget car hire in Inverness and add another name to the rental agreement. Book online with KAYAK and insure them at the same time. Your second driver will be a great relief on days you want to take in the scenery or perhaps fall ill. They will need to be present at time of collection to show their appropriate driver’s license.
  • When enjoying Inverness road-tripping, make sure you leave with the assurance of Roadside Assistance Plus to take care of you in the event that something non-mechanical happens with your car rental. It covers keys locked out of vehicles, running out of fuel, flat batteries and more, for a small fee. Don’t forget to consider additional extras such as child car seats and a GPS navigation system to keep you on the right path.
