There is no better way to see everything Sydney has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Don't waste your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can drive anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next trip to Australia even more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
With everything to do and see in and around the Sydney region, you'll be wanting to take in more than just the block your hotel is on while on your trip. Whether you are wanting to have dinner at that latest bistro across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own set of wheels to take in as much as possible while on your trip. Whatever you end up doing in Sydney, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having access to your auto is key.
We work with the finest businesses in the industry. Founded in Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best prices for customers. With a name like Budget, you know they will try to get you the lowest rate.
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Sydney is 21. Take time to check Budget's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Sydney. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Sydney vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give 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 with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Sydney. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget.
Sydney definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Sydney.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Budget. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Sydney, having the keys to your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to see more of Australia, you can go wherever you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.
