There is no better way to see everything Buenos Aires 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. When you have the keys to your own ride, you can drive anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next trip to Argentina even more enjoyable with a Budget rental car.
With everything to do and see in and around the Buenos Aires region, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel during your visit. Whether you are hoping to try the bistro that has received rave reviews across town or try some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own car to take in as much as possible during your trip. Wherever you drive to in Buenos Aires, if you wish to get the most from your trip, having access to your auto is key.
We work with some of the finest businesses in the world. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the lowest rate. Founded in Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best rates for their customers.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy 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 Buenos Aires 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 determine what the total cost is for you.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Buenos Aires. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Buenos Aires trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Argentina you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Buenos Aires. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Buenos Aires. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. But, 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 3X 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 return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Buenos Aires definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Buenos Aires.
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Budget. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Buenos Aires, having the keys to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to discover more of Argentina, you can drive wherever you like, without having to hanging out a stop waiting for the bus or signal for a taxi.
Before your next vacation, book your Budget Buenos Aires rental car and visit all the must-see sights. Go with CarRentals.com and drive the streets in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
