Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Baton Rouge Budget rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But getting your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Baton Rouge?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Baton Rouge's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Baton Rouge is 21. Make sure to check Budget's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Baton Rouge?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Baton Rouge. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Baton Rouge vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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 United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Baton Rouge. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Baton Rouge has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Louisiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've gone out in Baton Rouge's downtown or checked off all the activities in Baton Rouge. If you want to add even more entertainment on your Baton Rouge vacation, you can head to one of the two theme parks in the area. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the fam to Blue Bayou Water Park or Celebration Station.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Baton Rouge?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Budget. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
