You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Albany's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Albany is 21. Take time to go over Budget's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Albany?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Albany. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Albany trip can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Budget in the United States. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Albany. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle 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 find a gas station before you return the car to Budget.

Albany has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else New York has to offer.

If you are hoping to add some adventure to your Albany trip, you can also head to Huck Finn's Playland and enjoy a night riding the park's attractions.
