Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Birmingham Budget rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Birmingham?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Birmingham's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham is 23. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Birmingham?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Birmingham. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Birmingham getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Birmingham. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, 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?
Birmingham certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
