What you need to know about car rentals in Columbus

How do I get the best prices on a Columbus Budget car rental?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. 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 rental in Columbus?

You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

What's the minimum age to rent a car in Columbus?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Columbus 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 know if there is an additional cost before you book.

What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Columbus?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Columbus. Economy or compact cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Columbus average 28 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Columbus getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?

In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Columbus. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with 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 book your car for your trip to Columbus. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.

Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?

We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank. 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. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Columbus?

Columbus's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, however you may want to take to the road again after you've explored the capital of Indiana or checked out the capital of Indiana.

Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?

Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
