Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Birmingham?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Birmingham?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Birmingham. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room for everyone's bags and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Birmingham vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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 American Express or MasterCard, offer 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can 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 reserve your rental for your trip to Birmingham. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Birmingham has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Alabama has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Birmingham.
Does Birmingham Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
