The car was OK - The service was OK, and very courteous people But, the amount to be blocked from my card was way too much, and the only way of lowering it from 2200 dollars to 200 was accepting unwanted insurance

When I did the reservation online, the cost of the SUV car for 2 weeks was $330.00. However, when I got there the cost was actually $450.00 + insurance. I was told that the online price was just an estimation and subject to change, so it was paying or not getting the car at all. After that, since I refused to pay for insurance (it's covered by the credit card) they made a safety deposit of $3,000.00 on my card. Then they sent me to the garage to pick up the car and surprise, they didn't have the SUV I reserved available, so they upgraded my car to a full size car (Nissan Sentra) that barely fit all my luggage (the size of my luggage was the main reason I chose a SUV). The tag on the windshield said the next maintenance and oil change should be at 37,000 km. The car was at 48,000 km. I should've taken that as a sign. One week after, while driving on a highway, my front right tire blew, I maneuvered to the highway shoulder and replaced with the spare tire (that was in terrible condition). I then went to the tire fitter to get a new tire (tires are not included on the insurance's coverage and they say that you are responsible for the replacement) and he said that the tire I had was vulcanized already, with a patch so large that was bound to blow sooner or later. Another $50.00 on a second hand (in much better condition) tire. He also calibrated all the tires because they were all almost flat. 2 days after that I ran out of windshield wiper fluid. When I stopped at the gas station to get it filled, the gas station clerk checked the car oil and brake fluid and to my surprise said that the brake fluid was almost dry. Since I was about to return the car and had somehow survived 2 weeks with that car, I refused to spend any more money on it. So I ended up spending $500.00 on a car I didn't want. Avis/Budget will never see me or my family and friends again.

at carrentals web site I rented a VW GOL or equivalent, when I got there they gave a very small car, they said that the category you guys paid for was A and the car GOL was in category B.....another word....you guys sell one product and deliver another. Unfortunately we had a family emergency in Brazil and I had no time to argue! I've tried to contact you guys, but is that a number for that??? I end up with a car that the radio didn't work, very small, not comfortable at all, no room for luggage, I had to put my luggage inside of the car and no help from the people at budget. Budget does not have a store in Santos, SP - Brasil and I couldn't do anything about it when I got there. Only way would be to drive about 2 hours back to the airport agency to try to get another car.. The agent at the agency said that the problem was between carrentals.com and I, they gave the car that you guys paid for and that was it! I paid for a GOL and not for a YUGO!! Who covers that mistake now??

What you need to know for the road

How do I get a Sao Paulo Budget rental car at a great rate?

CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Sao Paulo?

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

What is the minimum age to rent a car in Sao Paulo?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Sao Paulo is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Sao Paulo?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Sao Paulo. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Brazil?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in Brazil. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to . Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

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

Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

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

We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental topped off. However, 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 triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Sao Paulo?

Sao Paulo certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Sao Paulo.

Does Sao Paulo Budget offer one-way car rentals?

Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
