Sorry to hear this, it isn't the best start to your holiday but you'll soon be on your way.

I think you've just been unlucky as we've used Budget many times and haven't waited that long.

This reminds me of maybe 12 years ago when we grabbed a cheapie and booked an 8 day Dollar car hire.

Rocked up to the desk and there were maybe 12 people waiting and 1 person serving. Cue the American Lady who started shouting like a loon. I have never seen so many Staff appear from the back room in my life.

This Lady was my hero.

She lashed them, and rightly so.

Temper temper. You're in Orlando, no need to throw a toddler strop.

So you think 1 hour 20 mins to wait for a car you have paid for is acceptable?
And you think it's acceptable to call a renter a toddler?

Am I right in saying you don't drive. So you have no experience of this? Mmmm

Edit. And I assume you will accept waiting 1 hr 20 mins from putting in a food order to it being delivered? Or the DME?

I feel your pain OP. Been there, done that with Budget and never ever again not even if the car was free. Id rather walk than use Budget.
