CarRentals.com works with some of the best companies in the world. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the cheapest rate. Founded in 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always works to provide the best prices for its customers.
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Apia is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Apia. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Apia trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In Samoa you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Apia. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Apia definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another Budget. However, there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Apia, having your own set of wheels lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to discover more of Samoa, you can drive when you want to, without trying to hail a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
