There is no better way to see everything Banff has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Don't waste your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can go wherever you want to go, when you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Canada more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With everything to do and see in and around Banff, you'll be wanting to take in more than the area surrounding your hotel while on your stay. Whether you are hoping to have dinner at the cafe that has received great reviews across town or check out some of the local favorites, you'll want your own set of wheels to see as much as possible during your stay. No matter what you end up doing in Banff, if you wish to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your auto is a must.

CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
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 Banff is 21. Take time to read through Budget's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Banff. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Banff getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Canada. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Banff. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Banff definitely 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 easier to return your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Banff, having the keys to your own automobile lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of Canada, you can drive wherever you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.
Before your next family vacation, book your Budget Banff car rental and take off to all the items on your itinerary at your own pace. Book through CarRentals.com and speed along the open road in Banff, Canada.
