Make your upcoming getaway to Greece more enjoyable with a Budget rental car.
With everything to do and see in and around Crete, you'll want to take in more than just your hotel room while on your visit. Whether you have to try that latest cafe across town or see some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own vehicle to see as much as you can while on your vacation. Whatever you end up doing in Crete, if you wish to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your car is a must.
We work with some of the most dependable car rental dealers in the world. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the cheapest rate. Founded during 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always strives to provide the best prices for their customers.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Crete is 21. Take time to read through Budget's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Crete. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Crete getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in Greece. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Crete. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
We advise a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Crete definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Crete.
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Crete, having your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to discover more of Greece, you can go wherever you want to, without having to coordinate ride-hailing services or wait for the bus.
