Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Athens?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Athens?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Athens is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Athens?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Athens. Economy or compact cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Athens vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
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, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Budget.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Athens?
Athens certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Athens.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Budget. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
