Broken: Budget rent-a-car phone

Just so Thrifty doesn't feel alone here at This Is Broken...

Craig Theisen writes from New Jersey:

This sign at the Philadelphia International Airport baggage claim area is self-explanatory. Obviously, if you want to get a pick-up from Budget, you're going to have to go outside and wait and hope the bus is running.


i believe they went out of business, so maybe its not so much an interface problem as it is a court ordered liquidation of all assets, such as phones.

My first thought was that the phone had been stolen. If someone defaces your interface, it's almost certainly not going to work.

there are lotsa other rental car phones in the area, you just have to yank one of those off the wall and move it to budget... they're just trying to save you money. ;)

sure makes you feel welcome, doesn't it?

Maybe you just bring your own land line phone and just plug it in.
