We work with many of the best rental car companies. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the cheapest price. Open for business during 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always strives to provide the best prices for customers.
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Fort Lauderdale is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Fort Lauderdale. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Fort Lauderdale are around 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Fort Lauderdale trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Fort Lauderdale. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book 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 reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with the needle at "F". 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget.
Fort Lauderdale has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Florida has to offer.

Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
