Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Bloemfontein Budget car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But getting ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my rental car in Bloemfontein?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Bloemfontein?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Bloemfontein is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Budget's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Bloemfontein?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Bloemfontein. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bloemfontein getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on 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 book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental topped off. 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station 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?
Bloemfontein definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Bloemfontein?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
