There is no better way to see everything Bordeaux has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Don't spend your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own vehicle allows you to go to the spots you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to France more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around Bordeaux, you'll want to take in more than your hotel room while on your trip. Whether you have to try the chophouse that has gotten fantastic reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own auto to explore as much as you can while on your trip. No matter what you have planned while in Bordeaux, if you want to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your automobile is a must.
We work with many of the finest rental car businesses in the industry. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the lowest rate. Founded during Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best rates for its customers.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Bordeaux is 21. Make sure to check Budget's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Bordeaux. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Bordeaux trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in France. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Bordeaux. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on 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 reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Bordeaux definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Bordeaux.
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another Budget. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Bordeaux, having access to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of France, you can leave when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or figuring out a bus schedule.
