That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Appleton. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Appleton vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Budget.
Appleton's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've gone out downtown or checked off all the activities in Appleton.
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another Budget. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
