If you want to see everything Albany has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Budget. Don't waste your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own car enables you to go to the sites you want to see the most, when you want. Make your upcoming trip to Australia more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With everything to do and see in and around Albany, you'll be wanting to take in more than just the block your hotel is on during your trip. Whether you have to have dinner at that new bistro across town or check out some of the best local favorites, you'll need your own car to take in as much as possible while on your trip. Whatever you have planned in Albany, if you wish to get the most from your trip to the city, having your vehicle is key.
We work with several of the most dependable car rental businesses. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the lowest price. Founded during Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always strives to provide the best rates for its customers.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Albany is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Albany. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Albany vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In Australia 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 example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Albany certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another Budget. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Albany, having access to your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to discover more of Australia, you can drive wherever you like, without trying to hail a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before you head out of town, book your Budget Albany rent-a-car and zip off to take in all the must-see sights at your leisure. Go with CarRentals.com and drive the highway in Albany, Australia.
