How do I get a cheap car rental with Budget?

Budget offer great rates on their car rentals. Make sure you find the best deal out there by:

  • Running a comparison of the vehicles and prices available on the website;

  • Planning and reserving the right car class for your travel requirements. 

How old do I have to be to rent from Budget?

Remember that you can rent a car from Budget if you are aged 21 or over. If you’re under 25, you might have to pay a surcharge for being a younger driver.

Is an additional driver possible?

Sure, you can add an additional driver. Perhaps you’ll be sharing the driving on your exciting road trip or just both want a chance to get behind the wheel of your rental vehicle. Just let us know when you make your booking, so we can adjust your rate accordingly.

What mileage is Budget offering?

If you don’t want the hassle of checking how many miles you’re clocking up every day, you should opt for unlimited mileage. While there are a range of mileage options available with Budget, this one is a practical choice, since you won’t need to watch the odometer for the duration of your trip!

What fuel policy should I get?

Our favourite fuel policy is full-to-full, since you’ll only use what you need. You also don’t have to worry about finding a gas station and filling up as soon as you’ve collected your vehicle, since the tank will already be full upon collection. Just remember to refill before returning the car!

What cars does Budget rent out?

Budget offers some of the best vehicles on the market from reputable brands. Perhaps you want to book a BMW or Chevy convertible for an out-of-town treat. Or you might reserve a roomy Ford or Lincoln SUV if you’re traveling with the family in tow. You can also reserve a Budget cargo van, as cargo vans are ideal when you’re looking to save money during your big move.

What do I need to rent a car from Budget?

Quite simply, just make sure you pop your driver's license and your proof of insurance document in your suitcase, since you’ll need to show these at the rental counter before being given your keys. One other thing: don’t forget to bring the same credit card you used to secure the booking.
