My overall experience with Budget in Clearwater was a positive one. They were fast and friendly. The vehicle was clean and ended up working out. However I was expecting a different vehicle upon my arrival. My request and reservation said Chrysler Pacifica or equivalent minivan. The vehicle I ended up with was a Ford Flex. Traveling with 4 adults and two children that required carseats a minivan would of been my ideal choice. Not a vehicle that's classified as a SUV. We made it work but a minivan would of made this a 5 star review instead of a 4.

We made two reservations with Budget to pick up cars at St Pete Beach. When we arrived for the first one we were told they had no cars. We were also told that there would be no guarantee there would be a car for the next reservation. We therefore cancelled that booking. This was a major inconvenience. I emailed Budget customer service 2 days agoand have yet to hear back.

Clearwater facility nice clean & felt safe. Drop the car off near the LaGuardia Airport (Elmhurst) a complete disaster! When you drop the car off you need to go into the office. Approximately nine people in there plus one Budget employee. Out of the nine people TWO people wearing mask one idiot no mask coughing (weed sticking animal). Would not recommend getting a car from them in NY.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best prices on a Clearwater Budget car rental?

We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.

What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Clearwater?

Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

What's Clearwater's minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Clearwater is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Budget's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.

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

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Clearwater. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Clearwater trip can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?

In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?

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

What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?

We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Clearwater has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Clearwater. If you want to add a bit excitement to your Clearwater trip, you can also go to Celebration Station and spend an afternoon taking on the park's attractions.

Does Clearwater Budget offer one-way car rentals?

Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Budget. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
