Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Calama Budget rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Calama?
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 Calama?
Most suppliers in Calama set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Calama?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Calama. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Calama vacation can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Chile?
In Chile you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget requires 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 note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your car 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Calama?
Calama certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit 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 return your rental car at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
