What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Caloundra Budget car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Caloundra?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Caloundra's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Caloundra is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Caloundra?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Caloundra. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Caloundra trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Caloundra. Additionally, 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 book your car for your trip to Caloundra. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Caloundra definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Caloundra.
Does Caloundra Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
