Airport Car rental - one that has cars right there?

I seem to remember, the last 2-3 times I few into BUR, noticing that one of the rental car companies has cars right there at the airport, and the rest have a shuttle for a site that's close, but not directly *at* the airport iteslf. Normally it's not a big deal, but I'm coming in next week and have a meeting that ends at 5:30 in Glendale, and a 7:25 flight, so this may be the time when those 10-15 minutes waiting for the shuttle make a difference. I want to say that it's Budget that's right there. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks everyone! I thought that by posting in the more specific forum, I would get someone familiar with the specific area.

It worked out okay on the return, so no harm (except for some frustration). I'm still a huge TA fan and not giving up over one (let's give him/her the benefit if the doubt) misguided poster. I just wanted to report the correct info in case anyone else found the thread.

Headed back home to the cold... Brrr...

Glad it all worked out.

Funny how so many of us apologized except the person who gave the bad advice. I guess we all apologized on his behalf.

Yes, always good to verify info you get here, even from well-intentioned, and well-informed, posters. I've rented from Avis, Hertz, Budget and Enterprise and, as OP says, only Avis, Hertz and National are on-site. All have rental counters inside the terminal and those that don't have cars on the airport grounds have shuttles. Many have rather early closing hours (e.g., 10:30-11 p.m.).
