There is no better way to see everything Bogota has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own ride enables you to go to the areas you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next trip to Colombia more enjoyable with a Budget rental car.
With everything to do in and around Bogota, you'll be wanting to explore more than the block your hotel is on during your stay. Whether you have to have dinner at the chophouse that has received fantastic reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own auto to take in as much as you can while on your vacation. Wherever you drive to in Bogota, if you want to get the most from your trip, having your auto is key.
We work with many of the finest dealers. Founded in Los Angeles, California around 1958, Budget always works to provide the best rates for customers. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the lowest price.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Bogota is 21. Make sure to check Budget's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Bogota. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bogota trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In Colombia you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Bogota. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". However, if you return your 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Budget.
Bogota definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Bogota, having access to your own set of wheels lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to discover more of Colombia, you can drive when you want to, without trying to signal for a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next family vacation, book your Budget Bogota rent-a-car and zip off to take in all the items on your itinerary. Reserve through CarRentals.com and hit the road in Bogota, Colombia.
