What you need to know about car rentals in Chennai
How do I get a Chennai Budget rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car in Chennai?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Chennai?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Chennai is 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.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Chennai?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Chennai. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Chennai vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does India require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in India. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Chennai. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book 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 car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Chennai certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Chennai.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
