There is no better way to see everything Puerto Vallarta has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Don't spend your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own car allows you to go to the locations you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your upcoming getaway to Mexico even better with a Budget rental car.
With everything to do in and around Puerto Vallarta, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel while on your trip. Whether you are wanting to have dinner at the chophouse that has received rave reviews across town or see some of the local favorites, you'll need your own car to explore as much as possible during your trip. Whatever you end up doing in Puerto Vallarta, if you wish to get the most out of your visit, having access to your own vehicle is a must.
We work with several of the top businesses in the world. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the lowest rate. Open for business during Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always attempts to provide the best prices for their customers.
We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. However, getting well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Be sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Puerto Vallarta is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Puerto Vallarta. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for everyone's luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Puerto Vallarta getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent. You can buy additional insurance through Budget for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Mexico. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget.
Puerto Vallarta certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Puerto Vallarta.
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Puerto Vallarta, having access to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to explore more of Mexico, you can leave when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.
