Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Atlanta Budget rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, getting well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Atlanta?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Atlanta's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Atlanta is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Atlanta?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Atlanta. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Atlanta average 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Atlanta trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
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. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Budget.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Atlanta?
Atlanta has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Georgia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Atlanta. If you want to add some excitement to your Atlanta trip, you can also head to Six Flags White Water and spend a night riding the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
