What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best deals on a Champaign Budget car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Champaign?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Champaign's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Champaign is 21. Make sure to check Budget's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Champaign?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Champaign. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Champaign vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Champaign. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Champaign has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Illinois has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've gone out in Champaign's downtown or gone out in Champaign's downtown.
