There is no better way to see everything Richmond has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can drive anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming trip to Australia even better with a Budget rental car.
With all there is to do and see in and around Richmond, you'll be wanting to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel while on your stay. Whether you are wishing to check out that new cafe across town or see some of the local favorites, you'll need your own car to explore as much as you can during your trip. Whatever you have planned in Richmond, if you want to get the most from your trip Australia, having access to your automobile is a must.
We work with some of the top businesses in the world. Open for business in 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always works to provide the best rates for their customers. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the cheapest rate.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise 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 Richmond is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policy to know 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 Richmond. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Richmond getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Richmond. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
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 Richmond. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest 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. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Richmond certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Richmond, having the keys to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to discover more of Australia, you can leave wherever you like, without trying to wave down a taxi or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next business or leisure venture, book your Budget Richmond rental car and take off to all the items on your itinerary at your leisure. Book through CarRentals.com and hit the streets in Richmond, Australia.
