What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Cognac?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Cognac. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Cognac vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in France?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Cognac. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Cognac. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle 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 to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Cognac?
Cognac definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Cognac?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
