What you need to know about car rentals

How do I get the best rates on a Ho Chi Minh City Budget rental car?

We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.

What should I bring with me when I pick up my car in Ho Chi Minh City?

Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Ho Chi Minh City's minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Ho Chi Minh City is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Budget's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.

What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Ho Chi Minh City?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Ho Chi Minh City. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Ho Chi Minh City getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does Vietnam require car insurance?

In Vietnam you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Ho Chi Minh City. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.

Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Budget.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Ho Chi Minh City certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.

Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?

Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
