Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Canberra Budget car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But reserving well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Canberra?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Canberra's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Canberra is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Budget's policies to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Canberra?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Canberra. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for everyone's belongings and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Canberra getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can 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 vehicle for your trip to Canberra. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Canberra certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Canberra.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Canberra?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Budget. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
