There is no better way to see everything Manchester has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have the keys to your own car, you can go anywhere you want to go, when you want. Make your next getaway to United Kingdom even more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around the Manchester area, you'll want to explore more than just the block your hotel is on during your trip. Whether you are wanting to check out that new chophouse across town or check out some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own car to see as much as possible during your trip. Whatever you end up doing in Manchester, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your vehicle is key.
CarRentals.com works with the most dependable rental car dealers. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the cheapest rate. Started during 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always attempts to provide the best prices for customers.
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. However, reserving ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Manchester is 23. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Budget's policies to know 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 Manchester. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Manchester trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. 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 luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Manchester. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental 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 fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Manchester certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Manchester, having access to your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of United Kingdom, you can leave wherever you want to, without having to coordinate a ride-share or hanging out a stop waiting for the bus.
Before you head out of town, book your Budget Manchester rental car and zip off to take in all the must-do activities. Reserve through CarRentals.com and hit the highway in Manchester, United Kingdom.
