Tried to get me to buy their waivers, I politely refused. Despite that, in the end all good. Returned car in a good condition and was not charged anything extra.

No problems at all. Alessio at the desk was extremely pleasant, efficient and helpful, also telling us there was a service station on the other side of the airport and to fill up otherwise we would be charged. He immediately accepted our own excess cover with no argument. Returned the car. It was checked very quickly and we were given the OK immediately regarding the condition of the car. No complaints at all.

Alan C's rating of their experience of Budget: (4/5) on 30 August 2019

Chosen by Expedia as part of a package deal. If using Budget or Avis at Verona Airport (same agents) be prepared for a long queue to pick up your car if arriving midday. About 30 mins. Remember to take a ticket else the wait will be even longer. They will of course try to sell you their excess insurance package but a firm ‘no’ I have already purchased this cover stopped the sales patter.

Super slick delivery and so helpful. Ready to change vehicle which was a 9 seater and too high to climb into for us. Did find a solution eventually. Return took 4 mins! Mobile office in carpark! Did not go to head office! Super fast

Good price, really friendly and helpful staff, quick processes. Only down side the car itself was a little worn - a number of bumps and scrapes. But it was comfortable and economical so no real complaints
