    Great tips! Will def consider them next time I'm renting a car. Although I personally do like getting cars at the airport, the convenience is worth the extra money. I like being able to pack up my bags from the airport into my new ride that I will be driving for the next "X" amount of days. One of my fave online car rental companies is: http://www.e-zrentacar.com/.

    I rented a van from Budget Rent-A-Car in New Orleans, LA area that was located at Sears’ department store in a shopping center in Metairie, LA. I had no problem making the reservation or picking up the van. The young woman who was working by herself on the afternoon of 1-18-14 was very nice and helpful, she also have very good customer severs skills. The issue that I feel needs to be addressed is the man that was working by himself on the afternoon of 1-19-14 was very rude and disrespectful. We arrived a little late (15-20 min) due to getting lost but we was in the office about 10 min before he stopped talking on his cell phone and told us I will be with you in a few, I just need to enter this in the system if that is okay with you all. We stated yes, by the time he helped us, put our information in the system the car was late, and charged a late fee of $67.56. We try to discuss with him the charges and he stated, “I do not have time, I have a family at home, and you all need come back on Monday or call the 800 number because his job is not to discuss charges on a Sat. afternoon”. We told him that we would not be in town and tried to ask him a few questions. He would not listen to us, he cut us off as we were asking questing and was starting to become irate and stated that we needed to go because he had to go or he would have to call 911. We did not want to cause any problems we had a few questions, we did exit and called customer service. During our call with customer serves, we talked with one of reps and she told us that she was not able to credit the charges and she put us on hold and transferred us to her supervisor. Her supervise was not willing to credit the late charges and told us that next time we should be 15-30 min earlier then the time it is due back to avoid the charges. I call my credit card and they asked that try one more time before entering a clam. I call today 3-6-14 talked with a very nice rep who was not able to apply the credit but transferred me to her supervisor Dona who was very nice. She was willing to discuss the charges. She was not willing to credit us any parts of charges unit I stated that “ 67.56 was a lot for an hour and that it would not have not been late if the employee had got off the his cell phone and entered our information into the system and I asked should I have pay for that.” Dona told that she could credit me for 50% that would be 33.31 and asked if I wanted the credit. I asked if she could credit the total and she stated no that was the best she could do. Thanks for all your help Dona!!! I have to pay 33.31 late fees for an employee to talk on his cell phone and enter other information into the system that is my information. I am not happy with this but due to time (time=money) I am going to let it go and take the lost. It has already cost more in time, which is also money vs. what I have to pay. It is not so much about the cost, as it is the principle that a company would allow this and not having this happen to the next person.
